10:02 am
looking at the crisis in europe with many panelists saying, what needs to happen here is that you need to look for relations with other countries. rather than making accusations now this comes at a time that a future hopeful member of the block is asking for assistance in its own energy crisis. talking here about more over more over the state of emergency. and it seems to be being cold shouldered by the e. u as it faces this crisis of its own so much so that the situation has led to the mass of the capital city. suggesting that what needs to happen now is for the parliamentary buildings, presidential buildings and all government building should look at turning that he told it's an idea of making sure that any heat that is available goes to the local residents and also a show of solidarity producing maybe
10:03 am
a turn of the hitting in the government parliament, the presidential office ministries and civil servants officers in order to free up gas to heat people's homes. this is not down to everyone who works there, but leaders to make the decisions. it depends on the what the people will be able to heed their homes. well, the state of emergency have been declared in mouldering over its gas crisis, but what's led to where it stands at the moment? well, the country did have a contract with russian supply a gas from, but that run out at the end of september. since then we'll do, has refused to sign a new contract with the company. it says that the prices that the company want are simply too high gas. prom says so that there has been a sky rocketing increase in demand for gas at the moment. and that has led to the increase in prices. it also says stover is pretty much to blame for the situation that it finds itself in the country is more than $700000000.00 in debt at the
10:04 am
moment to gauss prom. and while all of this is happening, the e once again is suggesting that russia is playing a bullying game here and is exerting political pressure on moldova. we see a terms of a gosh brom to put political pressure in return to lola the gas prices. and we agreed with a prime minister on the importance of strengthening resilience gains and potential efforts by 3rd parties to use energy as your political weapon will that have been outright denied by russia that says, gas problem doesn't have the capability of making political gestures like that only commercial ones. there's also been a suggestion that perhaps that you could put his hands in his pocket and help mold over on by paying for whatever the difference is in the cost of gas between the old
10:05 am
and the new contract is not likely to happen. well the e u says no, it won't be so much that full for helping out its neighbors, but it will be watching what unfolds in moldova over the next few weeks. as we know on december 1st gas. com says if the country has signed a new contract, the gas supplies will be cut off 18 months into the pandemic. and the u. s. continues to be the global cove at hot spot is currently averaging around $70000.00 new cases every day. and that's put the issue of vaccine mandates front and center with huge protests continuing against them. a critics have labeled measures unfair and extreme in new york, hundreds of 1st responders on city workers gathered in front of the residents of the cities may demonstrate against mandatory vaccination. comes off to build the plows jojo ordered all public workers off at least one shot by 5 pm local time.
10:06 am
this friday, those who failed to show proof of their vaccination will be put on unpaid leave, starting from next week firefighters. meantime, say they have not been given enough time to make an educated decision on wednesday, october 20th, then bayer extended vaccine mandate to all public employees, eliminating out option 9 days is not enough time for people who have more. could you with family who have big children to make a life changing? it only 9 day? oh i to that report of master resignations as well. and as a result, the city could see 20 percent of its fire houses close as well as 20 percent fewer ambulances on the road. meanwhile, the country's health authorities are still urging people to get vaccines. we spoke to a david huggins, the publisher of the great recession blog, and contributed to more than 50 financial news websites. he says he was fired from his local government job for refusing to get
10:07 am
a job despite already having not truly immunity from a recent covert infection. my colleague, daniel hawkins, heard his story. well, i have the underlying health condition that makes it so that it would be risky for me to take that. and i explained that to my employer love the nation school trying to get an exempt from based on the cdc's medical exemptions. but i wasn't successful at getting that my feeling is that a person with chronic fatigue syndrome, many people without illness and had a serious repercussions from taking the vaccine. so i didn't want to take the back seat. i already had it. so i don't see any need to take it, just tell us a bit more about your daughter and all because when it's and she also didn't want to get the vaccine, what was her exact reason for, for that decision which also obviously put the risk of losing her job. yeah, she works at a hospital at saint josephs and bellingham,
10:08 am
and she was terminated because she refused the vaccine because she is pregnant. now the irony here is that she works in the stafford ward of the hospital and they won't give any leeway to somebody who's pregnant even though the drug has not been tested. pregnant women or the world health organization is strongly recommended. people do get a short saying only math vaccination or natural immunity can bring an end to the health crisis. vaccines save millions of lives each year. vaccines work by training and preparing the body's natural defenses, the immune system to recognise and fight off the viruses. meanwhile, the state of florida is suing the biden administration over its vaccine mandates for federal contractors. but the president isn't relenting, saying compulsory vaccinations with state workers is a must. and david hug again so that leaves people in a very challenging position. yeah, it's a choice, but it's already forced on me. now the biden mandate doesn't kick in,
10:09 am
i understand sometime in december, but many state governments as well as the case it might, the government are anticipating that and have impose their own mandates with order deadlines. in my case, i work for a private school and they're not under the, the state mandate, but them on their own private mandate based on what's coming from the, by the administration in the state that, you know, is sympathetic to that point of view that also requires people to be back to needed in order to work there. they supposedly allow exceptions for medical reasons and religious reasons. but mine wasn't granted. joe biden is bracing himself for a tough meeting with his french counterpart in italy later today. it's their 1st meeting since washington outraged powers by going behind its back over a submarine deal with australia. other talks come ahead of the launch a g 20 gathering in rome on saturday. and peter, all of our correspondent in rome,
10:10 am
has more details, will be having to see if there's any awkwardness hanging over from orchestra, stop, or kasteel. of course, that was a defense pack made between australia, the united kingdom and the united states. and ultimately, what it did is it for p t o to deal that would have seen french submarines sold to australia. well worth around 55000000000 euro for france. the messaging coming out of paris, a heads of this meeting is being one of saying we want to reignite our relationship and work together with the us on key issues. however, the language that was coming out of front towards the us previously and just recently as well, was pretty spicy. today, we're taking another historic step to deepen and formalize cooperation among all 3 of our nations, the u. k. australia and the us will be joined even more closely together. reflecting the measure of trust between us his uni normandy, ship,
10:11 am
hugh, it's a huge disappointment, especially since 5 years of hard work went into this is to ensure the proper implementation and smith running of this major contract. the contract was to fulfill australia's request for a 12 conventional attack submarines to reiterate that it was they request. so estrella has gone back on his word and changed his needs. the thought to know yo, an alliance means transparency. it means predictability. it means clarification. it means talking to each other, not hiding, especially on a central issues. so all this is not been forthcoming and we will have to talk about it. why wasn't it forthcoming? both ammonia micron and joe biden, head into the meeting in rome, later on friday, having out, well, all the things on their plate beforehand for the french president, he'll of being trying to keep abreast of news coming out of front on friday, being published in the, the big newspapers, the policy on a right wing qu,

duck a bug alone, the big bully, the fatal blow julian us on remains in limbo following a 2 day extradition appeal hearing at london's high court. though it could still be weeks before it is actually delivered in this case me. i. the judges just said they will take everything into consideration, but no ruling was handed out immediately. the entire day was devoted to hearing arguments before by the prosecution for the grounds of appeal. why they want to appeal to judge's decision not to extra by the fund. and there were 5 grounds of appealing to the 2 main topics, or of course san jose health. and the assurance as a diplomatic assurance is given by the united states in terms of health. what the prosecution have been trying to do is accuse a key medical, extra witness professor compliment of being disingenuous of misleading the court by
10:21 am
concealing the identity of a son, just partner stella morris and the 2 children. and today in court, we finally heard the yahoo news story, the investigative journalism that was done a few weeks ago where 30 us confirmed what we already knew from anonymous testimony, that the c i was discussing, plans to potentially kidnap or poison julian as orange in london. and so this was brought up in the context of why couple men, why professor coleman should not disclose the identity of a song, his partner and their 2 children, because he feared for their safety. when it comes to the assurances that the united states is giving. they say that julian songs can service sentence in australia, but australia has not even indicated if they will take julian psalms. this is a process that could take many years. the truth is the jewel in his arms will most definitely be place in at least administrative segregation. and if not, he'll be sent to a special housing unit where there's a wide array of tools that the united states can use to break him once he's on us soil. and then most certainly will during both states. if the hearing
10:22 am
a san jacinto has rallied outside the courthouse, they want his immediate release and charges, john listen, is not a crime. others express growing concern over that with a blow with help. pink floyd co founder a long time the songs, the border, roger waters told us that he believes the whole case is a huge miscarriage of justice. this is an absolute nonsense that this man has been locked up for a single day. whether it's in the ecuador, in embassy, or in bel marsh, this is, this is one of the most valuable human beings we, the human race have. amongst us, he is deeply, deeply important to the potential for this race to survive on this planet. in my view, that is why julia shaw and she's imprisoned because he's interfering with the coming plan to steal the plan. it sort of right bit to death and then destroy. it is a disgusting miscarriage of justice. look at guantanamo
10:23 am
bay, asked shaka, alma, my friend, ask anybody who has been in the hands of the u. s. judiciary. and at any point, possibly since the 2nd world war with whom they did not agree. and you will find that there is no justice to be found in the united states. i'm so angry and i'm so bad. and i'm so disgusted with the united kingdom. oh, i did a radio program last night. john ship, tim was on it and he was extremely eloquent. and i asked him how he, how he manages his grief. and he was absolutely he was so moving to listen to. he says, well, he puts it to one side as it goes through his life and his life is entirely devoted to the freeing of his son. so he can go to his wife and children. and john says
10:24 am
that late at night, he may retreat into his melancholy, and i felt my heart lurch in my chest. as i listened to this man saying, and i felt his melancholy, me like a, i'm a blow on my chest. we are not going on anywhere at all. and our voice is going to get louder and louder and louder. julian, sunset free. i can promise you that. we spoke with john little taylor who doc, who believe that washington's prosecution of assange and dangers press freedoms. the world over the world is watching and the united states government can not seriously say that its respects press freedom in the 1st amendment if it continues to prosecute. julian assigns this will set a very serious and very dangerous global precedent. the outcome of this case is
10:25 am
certainly it will impact journalists and activists. but i think more importantly, people should realize that this case impacts every one because it impacts the public's right. to know julian assange published information that was in the public interest. people have a right to know about war crimes being committed in their name. people have a right to know that the u. s. intelligence agencies are spying on them without any legal basis for doing this. the university of cambridge seems to be trying to get its own degree in woken us. it's online library has begun slapping trigger warnings on texts and flagging woods and themes racist or offensive old. with the help of a sizable taxpayer funded ground of the world. famous british institutions says to move, will help get this to protect the feeling of a new generation of students. some of the materials, a hundreds of years old. so they negatively contain out of date views that many
10:26 am
young readers would find hurtful and defensive. some $10000.00 books and magazines being uploaded to cambridge as digital archive could be flagged. they include books like house on the prairie accused of stereotypical depictions of native americans also affected the beloved dr. seuss books due to the alleged cultural insensitivity or critics of slammed. the idea was unnecessary and straight forward censorship. useless. university stuffing millions of pounds on anything. what education? it's money are children of got to pay, but they are awful. people. this is very confusing. doesn't most literature become politically incorrect outside of its place in history? in my opinion, the important piece is ensuring history is truthfully taught. so literature can be put in perspective. cambridge university wants to be the parent. they do not believe you have the ability to take care of your child's outlook on the world. soft censorship is still censorship. we discussed the issues raised by
10:27 am
a cambridge universities trigger. warnings with a panel of guess is 80000 pound, and i think it's a mis spend all the money. i think there's no need for it. i think it's like the statues, evident us to be put into context. but i think students are intelligent or novel. they should be done to realize that that isn't the language now, minorities a tech space to tech, tech space as well. so why no, i have to wait frame like it's taxpayer money like we don't contribute in any kind of way and it's wasted on us to, you know, i just don't like that. there was a framing of it. we've just been talking about how much this is going to cost, but actually i think that's a bit of a red herring in as much as the, the cost to education values to the whole purpose of what an elite universities such as cambridge is, is all about you know that that far outweighs the sort of financial cost of what
10:28 am
the university is doing. nobody's telling them what to think. they don't even understand this line of argument. he's saying about putting it into context and they should be able to appreciate that. that's not the language used today, but isn't that the whole point of the trigger warning that people are saying, hey, this contains a forensic language that is in context by saying this is got offensive language and maybe grace is racist. stereotypes, that is the context, isn't it? when i went to university, the idea was you're going to be challenge, you are going to find new ideas, some ideas that you would agree with, some that you wouldn't agree with. that's what universities about expanding your mind if you cannot cope with difficult ideas that may challenge your own views or make you feel slightly uncomfortable if you can't cope with that. do not belong at cambridge university. racism is not a challenge. it's not something that you have to entertain, or it's not
10:29 am
a necessity. if somebody puts a trigger, warning on something you don't like it is not for you to skip over. it is not a big deal. one step away from burning books and we know that leads to lesson literature is there, you can read a book, decide you like after a few pages to so you don't like it after reading the whole, but whatever you want. but it should all be there written as it was written with nobody censuring it. we don't need that. our, that's a new scott for this, our life from moscow and archie international. thank you so much for spending some of your time with us here in the russian capital 5 30 pm on friday. we're back soon with more. ah, no one else. sure. thing wrong when i just don't hold any world yet to shape out. this theme becomes the advocate
10:30 am
and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah, with hello and welcome to cross stock where all things are considered. i'm peter lavelle when explained, show biden's sudden drop in the poles as a candidate, he promised to return to some form of normality. however, his current standing with the public is anything but is his agenda the problem? maybe he's not as likable as he once seemed. he is in trouble and so is his party.
