peaceful protests supporting your integration in ukraine are growing in numbers and it may be a calm before the storm as the country awaits its d.-day while here in vilnius levy leaders gather with all eyes on whether there's going to be a last minute u. turn from the ukrainian president over the association agreement with the. also tremors in texas an unusually high number of quakes hits communities there as locals and scientists point the finger at fracking we report and. drones are finding an increasingly wide use all over the world but we are not going to operate them as other countries do it's not a video game we bring of a team of putin's take on drug warfare as russia pushes ahead with a multi-billion dollar campaign to revamp its armed forces.
just after one am here in moscow this morning a very good morning to you then where of you watching us around the world one is kevin i mean this is an international our top story the a use eastern recruits have convened and for their summit now with ukraine's president firmly in the spotlight as he has a tate's over signing up to close the ties with brussels meanwhile pro european demonstrations in kiev into the sixth day with hundreds of people besieging the parliament building day and night let's hear jet skis the protests are growing in numbers in kiev right now i would say approximately thirty thousand people are to use independence square in the city center to process the speech so but this may well be a calm before the storm because we've already heard statements coming from some opposition leaders that in case that you know polish does not sign the euro station deal on friday in vilnius they were. i'll be taking people into the streets for
a nice and white strike and even inside what they describe as a euro revolution indeed this deal this is what it's all about we heard strong assurances from the government from the president that the deal will not be signed still these people here are hoping that the agreement will eventually be reached indeed it's a tricky situation because the korean government explain the move of not willing to sign this deal by economic damages possible economic damages to the country the economy which is already ailing and has one hundred thirty six billion euro a low debt will debt and modernizing the factories ukrainian factories alone for the e.u. standards would have cost more than one hundred billion euros but in the case of ukrainian politics which is the growth the coaster ride and it has always been like that you can never say anything with hundred percent certainty and despite those assurances by the government and the president mentioned there's still a chance that unocal which may take a u. turn a last minute u. turn you turn and sign these deals michael the couple scott who is now in vilnius
covering the summit will tell you more over to you paul well. heads of state have gathered here in vilnius for the two day summit german the german chancellor angela merkel and british prime minister david cameron are amongst the guests attending an informal dinner on thursday evening it's believed they're going to be discussing their next move on how to deal with ukraine decided that this isn't the right time for them to sign that association agreement with the you know of course the summit was meant to be where the formalities were completed on that deal of the last week decision from kiev surprise many off the years in the gushy ations to get to this point but the ukrainian president viktor yanukovych says that the terms of the deal and to grable for his country at the moment he says the six hundred million euros on offer from the e.u. and the i.m.f. for the country to modernize simply is not enough now that is something the president of the european parliament has come close to admitting on today saying that the e.u. may have underestimated the drama of the domestic political situation. in ukraine
that the country is economically in a bubble financially in the deepest crisis for decades and he goes on to say that kiev needs money and a steady gas supply suggesting that's why they're leaning towards russia at this time now another larger stumbling block appears to be the fate of former prime minister and jailed opposition leader yulia tymoshenko she's currently in prison and in need of medical treatment on how bad you say that that was a precondition that she goes to germany to get treatment all not back however that money was blocked by ukraine's parliament now the e.u. offer does remain on the table with president going to college being given until the eleventh hour to change his mind if you choose to do so it would be looking unwilling to budge on their stance that prospect looks unlikely. earlier we spoke a little bit did an aide to the leader of france's national front brain the pen he says it's not surprising that you credit reluctant to go ahead with the deal right now they're making interventionism inside the national politics of train i can totally understand the president of ukraine why he felt humiliated on this case
there mixing up with the international internet this is difficult questions of don't you get emotion go in there in every case the korean should be thinking twice about these offers which were seen as you really aging and which even upsets the russian friends i mean what does the european union have to offer when it is politically if i did when it's that is rising unemployment rate rising ukraine is divided into you have a pro european opinion you have pro russian opinion in this country for months history and its geography is complicated let's not make things even worse. the russian embassy in damascus has been hit by mortar fire a syrian security guards big killed but none of the russian staff are believed to
be in his or middle east correspondent paula sleep with the latest. we know that one syrian has been killed nine people have been injured including syrian security officials as of yet no information that points to any russian citizens having been killed or injured now the russian foreign ministry is calling this a terrorist attack we are also being told that there is in significant damage to the russian embassy building now the attack happened when a bomb exploded in the embassy premises earlier there was a mortar attack by anti government soldiers in the vicinity of where this industry building is the russian foreign ministry has issued a statement and i'm reading from it it says we resent and condemn decisively the attack by militants in central damascus and we consider this as an act of terror. but it seems russian ship just being attacked on the ground in syria but also in the media too just coming up later this reporting on why the foreign ministry is
outrage tonight over the way c.n.n. it is it to be with russia's ambassador to the u.n. . a three point six magnitude earthquake has struck at north texas it's the strongest trauma there in five years no damage or injuries were reported but locals of course been emotionally shaken by it i'm not everyone's blow to mother nature either some scientists say the drilling and thereby fracking wells is what setting off these quakes the areas been hit in fact by more than a dozen tremors this month alone it's seen more earthquakes since fracking bigger in two thousand and eight the joy of the previous four decades combined you make your own minds up here one texas residents in the affected area shared his experience with the. we had like three hundred one more than two point five minutes and in that three points and it's our aren't berman in the house shaken and we did have some damage minor just
a little crack in the rock my wife. and one lady and she's here to appear and being how. i have. been like we have. shaken our. cave in they were really concerned about it well she's taken it from us it was how this controversial fracking process works a well is drilled sometimes up to a thousand meters underground into the well into that shaft a mix of water is sand and tons of talks it's called fracking fluids are pumped into high pressure creating fishes then that allow the old in the gas to reach the surface but the problem is the harmful chemicals used for fracking accumulate in the soil and they also contaminate ground water as well they get into the water table there the toxins also evaporate too up into the air and they cause air pollution so there's a growing movement to ban the process and it's confirmed seeing a powerful energy lobby the king to tap into lucrative deposits that he's up against i spoke to a texan activist shot and wilson she used to live near
a fracking site until she made the really tough decision itself to abandon her own home. at one time i turned my tap on and nothing came out which was a very frightening thought the air was degraded horribly lots of air attacks trucks lie no i it was just it completely changed the character the worst concern for me was to end up without water or that my son could end up being sick from the chemicals that he was being exposed to i lost eighty thousand dollars in property value as they expand this practice more and more people are harmed and more and more people join the opposition right now there is an entire neighborhood over five hundred homes in jenin where they are fracking very very close two hundred fifty feet in some cases from people's backyards. using fracking to extract shale gas is actually more hazardous the burning the gas itself according to british t.v.
stephen hole. there are much better alternatives are the disposal of we don't need fracking whatsoever and not only that i mean people such as me there is a transition feel i've been sure that america from the leakage is from all the wells that there is the rates of something out the sense of leakage of the gas into the atmosphere as a lot more potent greenhouse gas the what's see also as you know there's a chance to reset is actually a more harmful form of energy than burning coal in power stations. drones are not toys that's the message from the russian president at a meeting in salt she devoted to the country's defense industry the military's going through some major changes the moment. the story while at the presidential residence the president has had a very busy day safe now he went on to talk
a little bit about at the defense and aviation industry particularly about the drug use technology let's listen to what he had to say just in the drones are finding an increasingly wide use all over the world but we are not going to operate them as other countries do it's not a video game however it's absolutely clear that unmanned systems have a big future russia's armed forces are currently going through something of a transformation in fact if they've begun as modernization program since the soviet era the government says it needs to adapt to face up to new threats this all comes at a major cost of course hundreds of billions of dollars and the process will continue until twenty twenty old hardaway's being modernized and new cutting edge weaponry is being born but in time and abroad keeping up with global advances an unmanned military system is a vital part of this revamp drone technology has become highly sophisticated but is
also very controversial. to hell reports of civilian deaths and u.s. drone strikes in yemen and pakistan all in the name of the war on terror russia is determined not to go down that road although it does want the technology so it's a new phase for russia's military but with some clear boundaries you place the bomb with a small cheap r t. m kevin i was hoping so with me for the next couple of minutes in the second half there's a news bulletin we bring you the latest on rest in egypt a lot more to. say was recently revealed that jamie diamond rented out blocking a palace in order to entertain his close friend tony blair the dinner took place only days before jamie dive in and agreed to give the us department of justice a very small cut mortgage fraud and oh how the penniless peasants outside
gyptian students being killed and several other people injured in street violence in the country's capital police used tear gas water cannon to break up a rally outside curry university who's got the details from marty's bell truing cairo. well face clashes have been raging between student protesters and security forces at cairo university we've had reports of one death a student who died dr bird shot injury to his neck and there are other reports of critically injured students also outside this key university now this kid took this afternoon because students were angered the harsh jail sentences given to twenty one young women are going on exam today who were arrested in october for protesting in suppose that islam is president mohamed morsi he was ousted in july by the military now sports scene of those women have been given the eleven years in jail for supposedly holding weapons and assaulting police officers seven of them are mine is that just fifteen years old sixteen years old they've been sent off to juvenile detention centers their families say they were just protesting on the
corniche of onyx on terror holding balloons handing out flyers but the authorities claim that they were actually being very violent it's not just islam is protesters who have been cracked down on we've also got the group elected activists who have been arrested the new protest group by the government which was issued a few days ago for hits any protests that happened without permission from the interior ministry so anyone that here is in the streets rallying is being allowed to go into it you can see the nixon demonstrations occurring with tear gas but it's also water cannons the latest news you cards is addiction blog of the fact there who is one of the keyboards is the donor to divide the nation has picked up this this evening his wife beaten him as he was being summoned by the general prosecutor for inciting protests he is of course a liberal leftist activist saying that it's not just the islamists who. being targeted the question is whether the government can continue this has been massive opposition from a lot of the political factions including comments from one of the main little
leaders he's going to be a presidential hopeful he tweeted this afternoon asking the interim president to pardon these girls who've been sentenced and there's been a lot of pressure broad's about this new protest though asking for it to be looked at again so the question remains whether this military led government will be able to continue this crackdown and continue issuing these very difficult laws and restricting freedoms. that the news network c.n.n. missed not taking steps to iron out a dispute with russia's foreign ministry over an interview with the country's envoy to the united nations key details were apparently cut from a conversation the channel says no plans to post in full on its website it is really a culture never explains what exactly moscow objected to. american news network c.n.n. sas that it will publish the entire interview with russia's ambassador to un vitaly churkin on its website that statement comes out sharia was revealed that c.n.n.
made some really significant cuts to its interview wasn't that its role in most notably has commines on the number of people that actually support syrian president bashar assad now their first question that was concerned i saw a wall in the in terror and here it's a waste of the russian envoy sat should be up to the country's people and no one else and there was also another topic that c.n.n. felt was necessary in the final version of the inn for you that was all about the rebels in the conflict it was a valid the afterwards on their part to hamper humanitarian aid delivery to the war stricken population earlier russia's u.n. representative. grabs that have been without the complete interview i did not make the c.n.n. cots and the censor of some of the most important and crucial issues in the resolution of the syrian crisis you will cover the top stories on our website this
morning cultivating life on other planets may sound like science fiction but we go to report to say a breakthrough could be on the way you can find the. scientists apparently just a couple of years away so in the first plant seeds on the surface of the i don't know. if you think you've got a way to screw somebody like the story of this welshman who tucked away a fortune unfortunately took to the way in a landfill site we got the story of how he lost millions of dollars worth of colleagues because he chucked away the encrypted code into the bin that's going to send said feels like now it's gone forever. now in recent years the european union's premier enveloping new members but some of the blocks leaders aren't happy with the free movement of people that this expansion brings they want to buy goods rights to housing a welfare with the loudest calls coming from britain france and germany peter all of the reports. well in a little over
a month's time on january the first rumanians and bulgarians will have the right to move within the european union and seek employment now we saw david cameron the british prime minister say he wants to see limits put on the amount of benefits that those type of migrants would be able to receive those calls have been echoed by anglo-american here in germany and france who are land in france and it does seem that there is this movement between this split between the the west in the east in the e.u. those in the west are concerned that there's going to be a huge influx of migrants moving their way now in backing up mr cameron's mr cameron's words we heard from angela merkel saying that migrants poverty migration was the cause of considerable social problems in certain cities in germany no she didn't mention those cities but it was almost understood that she meant those along the eastern border of germany in the former the former east germany. no
what she said is that it's as she was announcing her coalition government that she wanted to try and. restrict sions that would not allow migrants to just move here without a job and sign on for social benefits for housing benefits and the like that they would only be allowed to do so for limited periods of time now all in france the french warland was saying similar things he said that this type of migration was a threat to the social fabric of france and that something must be done to try and curb these type of large scale migration from east to west from those who are not just from east to west but really from the poorer countries in europe to those that . have weathered the storm much better than others those in the high echelons of the european parliament of being concerned by these comments coming out but it hasn't stopped leaders in britain in france and here in germany saying they want restrictions on migrant. all of a revolutionary three d.
printing technology spoke to guns scare in america after a workable firearm was successfully created now then philadelphia has become the first u.s. city to ban the unlicensed printing of guns but important looks next and how anyone could soon manufacture weapons at home. red's shooting range in austin texas is normally packed with gun enthusiasm. today the difference is that these men are firing rounds with a do it yourself firearm the world's first three d. printed metal gun we wanted to showcase the abilities of what direct metal can do and what a better way than find something that can withstand a bunch of heat tolerance accuracy all wrapped into one which in america everybody knows which is a par. eric much later is a project coordinator at solid concepts company specializing in three d.
printing young prince or in the arts he was granted an exclusive tour of their austin facility which boasts ten three d. industrial printers and a glimpse of our technological future these are all the three d. printed parts that went into making this car after getting a federal firearms license the company used a process called direct metal laser centering to produce this browning nine hundred eleven pistol takes about twenty five to thirty five hours depending on the machine we put it on and what materials were grown in. this three d. printing and metal gun has fired over one thousand rounds in the meantime solid concepts has manufactured its second nineteen eleven firearm we plan on making a few more prototypes for additional testing. and we don't we don't plan on going into full production on these we can afford to sell them. at the price of be
required to get our money back while the prices of many three d. printers have fallen below one thousand dollars solid concepts insists the stainless steel firearm they've introduced to the world can't be replicated by hobbyists these machines start at six hundred thousand and go up to a million dollars they need to be in. industrial environments they require more electricity than is available in residential areas and they require inert gases in the chamber that are just not commonly available so it's definitely an industrial commercial type process and it will be years before metal printers become available on the consumer market if at all not exactly the world's first mini metal maker has already been created it prints using precious metal clay and with laser centering patterns set to expire in february it's predicted that metal desktop printers will hit the consumer market before you know it five years and how small this is going to do it maybe five years after that you starts at home workshops and and you know
having one on your desktop at home so that we are going there that technology exists the price will come down. as the world has learned the convenience of technology has a downside we all loved the internet cell phones e-mail and social media before finding out that our beloved data is being monitored and stored by the n.s.a. . the astonishing capability of three d. metal printers is no longer a secret. so when they become a part of our household tap alongside the microwave and flat screen t.v. thing what people choose to physically in the privacy of their home thing will be beyond the control of the u.s. government growing up or naive r.t. texas say the things to come then will plastic cheaper to produce the metal ones right now the first plastic forum was printed back in may so father's proven to be not reliable but as marina said in
a report that metal printers are becoming more affordable potentially than making a possible for old re people to stop working replicas of proper firearms one expert in the field told me more about the dangers of three d. printed guns as well. it's a very universal kind of technology that can be used in los a different way some some good some not so good but it is alarming that people have started printing guns i would say the most dangerous thing is let's say a gun that doesn't look like a gun but looks like a flower vase or something else and so that this this ability to make things in any shape and form really defies a lot of the conventional thinking around regulating guns around detecting them and so forth and i think that's sort of it's a whole new world when it comes to controlling these kinds of things. internationally brief now.
but you know there is protest as in thailand managing to cut off power and also water supplies but actual police headquarters earlier in the day prime minister yingluck shinawatra urged anti-government demonstrators to back down after she survived a no confidence vote in parliament security has been raised across the capital bangkok there is the country faces its largest civil unrest in three years proud to be marching on state ministry since sunday accusing the premier of acting as a proxy for her brother tax engine or what it was forced from power back in two thousand and six. beijing's now ordered warplanes to routinely pretrial its newly declared a defense zone over disputed islands in the east china sea it comes in the wake of america japan and south korea all said the military flights over the archipelago the disputed threatens to overshadow u.s. vice president joe biden's trip to the region next week to add fuel tensions between china and its regional neighbors. in nigeria with fear being flowing through the streets in the city of cairo where shari'a law is in effect around two
hundred forty thousand bottles of booze have been seized by islamic police and destroyed amid a clampdown on so-called immoral behavior most of the alcohol has been confiscated from minority christian shopkeepers hundreds of arrests have been made since september following a directive from the state government. might see the next news bulletin in full just about thirty three minutes time to now and then i'll be joined next stacie the keeping an eye on what the bankers are up to as always in the kaiser report very soon. i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two to ideologies. in place of the abstract at the nine hundred
thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and spent the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating they're now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their ex used to build up some infrastructure by i think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand a lympics in beijing yet china is really develop in the last twenty years but the olympics really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think or the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i have to say i think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battleground again and then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion.
there's a media so we leave the. oceans secure. there's an. issue is that no one is asking with the guests that you deserve answers from. politicking only our team. max kaiser welcome to the kaiser report you know it was recently revealed that jamie diamond rented out blocking him tell us in order to entertain his close friend tony blair the dinner took place only days before jamie diamond had agreed to give the us department of justice a very small cut of his ill gotten mortgage fraud gains and oh how the penniless
peasants outside buckingham palace gates rejoiced at the impossibly large number of thirteen billion dollars jamie paid. all hail jamie dolly and they cheered but while the food stamp meeting bedroom tax paying part time working masses gaspin off the large songs of ill gotten gains falling out of the financial tyrant pockets the likes of jamie diamond and his close friend tony blair know that winter is coming and that when you play a game of thrones you win or your dog is that true stacy herbert apparently now you know everybody knows that we have this rise in wealth and income gap and the inequality gap the gini coefficient index around the world is rising but you know many people look at it and think that it's the poor that are going to rise up and that they're going to be be angry with how little they have in fact.
