e remitted to all fields. but closing the door to the word will not stop as evolution of the word it will not dollars but inflame the fruits of our citizens we have to keep our eyes wide open to the new risks right in front of us. dying estabrook is in washington she joins us now and so diane we are hearing a president back on speaking about a very special relationship between the u.s. and france but of course his partners back in europe want to know if he's going to be able to persuade president trump to stay in the iran nuclear deal. and he pushed that point today during his speech to congress he talked at length about the u.s. is important role as a leader on the world stage and and he talked about iran and the iran nuclear deal and he conceded that it is not
9:04 pm
a perfect deal but he emphasized why it is so important for the u.s. to stick with it and not scrap it. we signed it boasts the united states and france that is why we cannot see we should get rid of it like that it is true to see that this agreement may not address all concerns and very important concerns this is true but we should not abandon its without having something substantial and more substantial and said that's my position. what else did say beyond politics and challenges in terms of foreign policy and national security for both the u.s. and europe what did he have to say about trade and the global economy. well one of the things that he did say was the dangers of tariffs and he said that you know if
9:05 pm
at the moment europe the e.u. does not have the united states is not placed tariffs on steel and aluminum they're exam to but that exemption could end next week and he said imposing those tariffs could launch a trade war could make it difficult for you know the global economy to prosper and could erode wages and also the middle class they also talked about regulation in the form of global markets that's something that you know that trump the trumpet ministration has looked at rolling back regulations on the financial markets and he talked about the importance of keeping those some of those regulations in place then as they work in washington thank you well as emanuel concludes his u.s. visit we take a look at how the french are reacted to his host relationship with donald trump the trip featured multiple backslaps handshakes and kisses reports from paris on this

loss the main bromance. there was hope the ceremony displays of affection and words like. the apparent friendship between the french and american presidents was on full show during emanuel machall state visit to washington politically the two men have little in common but the liberal macro is determined to get on with his conservative counterparts we have to make room for years in france opinion polls suggest donald trump is unpopular but many people support mike ross approach. what on that they are great friends doesn't matter michael is the french president and he must create strong ties with the u.s. . it's very important for france and for the u.s. and even for europe especially as trump seems to really appreciate president it's just a chill to have a good. analysts say that macros courting of trump is seen by many french people as
9:07 pm
a political tactic mcroy is probably really doing that for the strategy of trying to show from that he actually does respect him and to value the transatlantic relationship because at the end of the bay from the european perspective every might not like the american president but the u.s. was always remain an important partner since micros election he has nurtured his relationship with trump inviting him as france's guest of honor to last year's bastille day celebrations and talking regularly by phone mackerel says he was able to convince trump to keep u.s. troops in syria some people say that a macro is close mr trump is a risk because the u.s. president is so unpredictable but others say the french president has much to gain he can try and influence trump on important international matters such as the iran nuclear deal and it may help france's international standing rockwall seems to her very well thought through diplomatic strategy which is
quote
9:08 pm
true create the largest amount of flexibility for france by making sure that the u.s. is on side michael will leave washington with few promises on a number of issues it's unclear for example whether trumbull impose u.s. trade tariffs on the e.u. or agree to an expanded iran nuclear agreement but if trump changes his mind on either issue many people in france may feel that all the back slapping and smiles were worth it natasha butler al-jazeera paris. well protests are continuing in amini as capital as the political crisis unfolds thousands of people timed out to the streets on the call from the opposition leader who accuses the government of refusing to negotiate a transfer of power celebrations to go after the acting prime minister announce fresh elections to write and pass but critics say they don't trust the current government to him to see the electoral process demonstrations began almost two weeks ago as the political reforms which the opposition is seen as

history of this now isolated nation is revealed as you travel around the capital city. this monument marks the defeat of the japanese who occupied korea until the end of world war two a few years later the korean war which had a devastating human cost on both sides this is a country that was forged in war and is still even now on a war footing. yet. younger koreans at this school taught the history of the korean war war images are displayed in the corridors. older koreans meanwhile need no reminders. forthcoming talks will center on north korea's nuclear program but the country has a substantial conventional last look to the principal target of their artillery guns the south korean capital seoul earlier there in the other half of this divided land i spoke to a lawmaker a military expert who told me the world should not only focus on the nuclear

9:21 pm
a new man reports now from the parent observatory in northern chile. at sunset the views from the european southern observatory located in chile's at the camera desert are breathtaking but it's a night when the deep darkness and unique atmosphere and conditions of the at the camera these guys into heaven for astronomers. but at the pattern al observatory scientists probe the universe with giant telescopes but at twenty six hundred meters above sea level and one hundred fifty kilometers from the city of until five asked that these starlet skies are being threatened by light pollution we are in very isolated place in chile but we can see still hollows from the cities from the mines so it's it's very very disturbing to see all of these lights. from space you can see just how contaminated by light our
9:22 pm
planet is becoming making it more difficult to see the stars. although chile's government has introduced standards to significantly reduce street lighting in cities near observatories cheap lights are increasingly illuminating homes stores signs and billboards especially in the cities of last sit in a and. the impact he's grown use well no measurable so it's no longer a threat it's a reality. it's happening at a time when astronomers like that number selman believe they've never been closer to making the discovery of all time the great for adventure of humor i mean people right now with her. here which is good we're looking for life in the universe. and happening right now here in the program a bit. and for that darkness is crucial this is sort of structure may look familiar it was used as the location for the lair of the forces of evil in the james bond
9:23 pm
film quantum solace but in fact the reason why it is practically underground is to keep it light from leaking out at night from this pattern as residents of some one hundred and fifty astronomers and technicians. north in chile will house seventy percent of global astronomical infrastructure in less than five years along with the world's largest telescope but astronomers are sending out an s.o.s. warning that if mankind continues to over illuminated the skies we will lose the time long ability to gaze and be guided by the stars. we can cross now to our latin america it is how you see a new man who is in the attic on a desert and lucy a this is this is quite a place that you are exploring at the moment it doesn't well actually the scene behind me is a lot darker than where you are but tell us more about what it's like to be there.
9:24 pm
well it's beautiful as you can see in the daytime but of course that night that's when really the skies light up i've never seen so many stars in my life you really don't even have the sense that there are that many stars in the galaxy or in the universe when you live in the city because you just can't see them joining me now to talk more about that and the challenges that astronomers are facing because of this light pollution is astronomer and you know sunny from the european southern observatory here and by now eleanor first i'd like to ask you what exactly are the challenges that people like you are facing because of all the slights that we're seeing everywhere well first of all if you wanna run a professional. you need to stay far from light pollution so one of the reason why we do need to be professional telescopes in such places so isolated.
9:25 pm
is because we need to stay far from the cities to protect our telescopes earnings torments from like pollution but that's because they interrupt your ability to see this what's happening beyond ours are normal skies isn't it let's correct a busy pollution. affect the quality of what data in two ways we cannot see very faint and or far away sort of. and even voice at the start of our galaxy is quite bright and how we like pollution generate but rounds its means that generate noise. so i get we cannot see any more of the most finest detail and the tides defeat u.t. introducing in analyzing the data and what does this mean for the future of astronomy in general if this is if this can't be preserved preventative stopped it should it should be presented of straw that our programs also run by not all your target area but also by governments to try to protect the observatories because.
9:26 pm
continuous industry while they might affect not just science and actually affecting culture on life and scientific culture of life in general because. pollution makes this guy over and people doesn't look at that funny more. you don't look at something that you don't like to care about it's not. that you see but if you start it's nice when you're a talian from the country where the first invented the very first telescope but of course science has advanced so so much but there are billions of dollars being spent just here in this desert in order to see the stars to go beyond what we ever thought was imagine a bull what feel is what is your motivation. well the first motivation is what drives science research in general. we do need to understand.
9:27 pm
we do need to understand how beautiful wouldn't. be it from many different points of view and last but not least are. found to the money better spent to be such such machines which telescopes. the development of new technology and such new technology can be employed you know what are your team of for example the camera we do have a. solid are formed comes from. the previous development of. our called me in the sixty's well thank you so much if you're not a for sharing your insights with us this is an endless subject it's an absolutely fascinating one as well and we can only hope of course merriam that humanity will learn to keep the lights off so that we can learn more about what exists beyond
9:28 pm

9:42 pm
how many follow as they tend to have. sure so. read it in cell thread that was shut down recently because it violated community standards had about four thousand followers and to give you like read it is absolutely dedicated to free speech so the idea that it would shut down a forum as popular as that will tell you something about the extent of the massage and the hatred that it contains and it's a subgroup it's a subculture this is you know it's part of the man who. an area of the all tryst internet is concerned with pick up artistry men's rights activism and also the kind of very very ill and solid besides any that you find on the. and and forums and quite it is a you know a subcultural ideology at the same time it's been quite and. it's
9:43 pm
it's. it underscored some notable violence in the past so for example the isle of these two murder was famously inspired by in cell ideology and he carried out his stabbing and murder rampage to gain revenge on women who wouldn't sleep. what type of individual is vulnerable or susceptible to this type of extremist ideology. i'm not sure i have the expertise to answer that properly i have to make some assumptions and but certainly the members of these communities you seem to be men and younger men there are men who seem to feel that they're not attractive that they don't have economic status so i'd imagine that they come from you know a wide range of backgrounds across society but i suppose when it becomes dangerous
9:44 pm
