i mean is it is a joyous occasion i mean a wreath there has given to gift of music in her voice to us and you know what better way to share it with music you know people who've been there i mean i would say the tribute concert yesterday and she stone right in the bar right so many different artists in there at the funeral i've been watching on t.v. as well ron isley and audi's people who i grew up listening to so it's been a little want to book a reason and civil rights leaders and people from from from politics on on through so it's been a wonderful time so a towering figure in the hearts of many of the people not just there in detroit and across america but across the world what are some of the most inspiring attributes you had today. for me going to the concert yesterday at the tribute ashame park the gospel celebration was one that really stood out to
me because aretha franklin she was the queen of soul but she was also a voice of gospel music and the gospel tribute was was phenomenal and then today ron isley ron isley is a is a person who's been in music for decades probably even longer going to read than he he was amazing you know so those are some of the tributes there stood out for me you've been out in the city of detroit state i've been watching the funeral on a big screen and the pock. and has this and this is this is clearly a big deal across the city. you know we did the buildings are lit up. for the peek out of life there were dozens of peek out a length driving to the funeral so that was just a sight to see i was in the park and we call the campus martius in the middle of the troy and there are people on the grass just laying out listening to the funeral
but also share a story so i have friends who share stories about their father dear this with the read and everything was a detroiter so people would see here in the city you know she was a worldwide superstar but she was also a detroiter you see and almost felt like you know you know or so so so much so much i mean people are have every hard solution to repeal but at the same time we we are tired of music that she left and we were seeing pictures of the reverend al sharpton and jesse jackson amongst that they the well wishes that at the funeral it's important to remember that as well as a singer she was a she was something of an activist as well in the civil rights movement. yeah yeah he brought that up he brought that up to say she may not have been on the front line on a time but she was her voice was there on the front line i mean i read those voices is american black family that's that's her voice i mean that's what i do when i
hear or read i think about my grandmother's house and i think about listening to records and her share and different things that may have gone on in the civil rights movement and also i just you her voice carry so much with me it wasn't just the song it was the whole feel in the soul of the music that was a part of our families just a part of our live shot in case and and troy thank you so much thank you thank you more tributes and the united states this time to a political giants the body of the late u.s. senator john mccain has been brought to the capitol rotunda in washington to lie in state members of congress attended a ceremony to honor the man who served in the u.s. congress for more than forty years senator mccain died from cancer at age eighty one a full funeral service will be held in washington on saturday former u.s. presidents barack obama and george w.
bush due to speak. w correspondent my schweitzer on capitol hill told us more about the tributes. you know there's definitely spirit of bipartisanship that's permeating of the atmosphere of this funeral in a way that really hasn't been seen in washington for a couple of years all get in the spirit of bipartisanship is really being hammered home he's being lionized is one of the the last great people who is able to reach across the aisle and work with people who are not in his party there's a lot of talk of he put country above party is something that a lot of people who have spoken about him and to the media say is missing in today's dialogue in the united states and so there's a lot of outpouring of emotion that this could really his death could really mark the end of an era for u.s. politics. u.s. president donald trump us walked away from the iran nuclear deal started tardif
trade was with china europe canada and pretty much the rest of the world is currently renegotiating the north american trade agreement to have to describe me as a disaster responsible for american job losses then he'll be hunty during an interview with bloomberg in which he threatened to withdraw the united states from the world trade organization calling it the single worst trade deal ever made before going on to say that if they don't shape up he would pull america out. about threats drew a measured response from w t o chief robert as a veda he said there was no panic over mr trump's comments and if the president's views on the organization would nothing new here just some more off them. w t o it's treated the united states very badly and i hope they change their ways they have been treating us very badly for many many years simply put we have not been treated fairly by the world trade organization people have to understand our
country on trade has been ripped off by virtually every country in the world that we like to piggy bank that everybody is robbing and that ends we're not being treated fairly they don't treat us properly we will be doing something thank you everybody. oh clearly not a fan joel trotman is professor of international law at tufts university fletcher at law school in the united states he's consulted for a number of governments and international organizations including the un the world bank and the o.e.c.d. he joins us from just outside boston a welcome to you at this president trump actually have the power to withdraw the u.s. from the. we're really not certain i think the best answer to that question is that he does not commerce clause of the united states constitution gives the power to regulate commerce to our congress and that our
congress has not delegated the power to regulate in the form of withdrawing from the world trade organization to the president and so that he does not have power so if he could get it through congress what difference what what effect would american withdrawal from the w t o of on world trade. well presumably president trump would feel even more free which would be a lot more free than he currently feels to impose tariffs as he wishes without regards to the united states' commitments as i suggest he's already done that to a large extent under the national security pretext of our statutes and also of an exception in law second the united states would not be participating in the beauty of the speed settlement and of courtly to the united states the
united states would have no rights to make claims to other states to request those other states to comply with their obligations so let's see a return to what you might call the wild west of retaliation and counter-retaliation right there that some of that but what a what a long way from let's talk about the nafta. negotiations because donald trump is at least being consistent and this is a president who is not a fan of multilateral trade deals he described the north america free trade agreement as the worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere and the killer of u.s. jobs here is what i can understand about this this is a three way deal between canada the united states and mexico how does mr trump been able to turn what was a three way deal into two bilateral deals u.s. canada and us mexico. well in order to turn it
into to buy a lot of old deals he would have to withdraw the united states from the existing agreements and enter into new agreements with the two states but let me say that what he has negotiated with mexico he concluded preliminary in the negotiations with mexico couple of days ago what he's concluded is economically identical in most respects to the existing nafta agreement so it makes it strange for him to claim that it was the worst deal ever when his renegotiation replicates most of what was in that deal what was and what i find odd about this is that having done that mexico sat back while the united states i'm kind of a have that agreement which sounds like mexico just saying yes to anything that goes to a grade in what as i say was supposedly a three way deal i don't quite understand how that works. well it's important
to mexico to maintain even the bilateral trade relationship with zero tariffs which is what the north american free trade agreement does with the united states and it's also important to canada to retain that and they're both willing to make some concessions in order to retain that core free trade arrangement and so it may be that count of the gives up some modest commitments with respect to anti-dumping duties mexico give some modifications on what would constitute a north american automobile for purposes of the eligible for zero tariffs so they're willing to do a lot and i think this is you know president trumps art of the deal negotiation style where he prefers to go bilateral first to negotiate in a context where united states power might be applied most
effectively. he doesn't need to know what he wants very well and he doesn't seem to be getting things that are really relate to the concerns that he's expressed so as far as we understand the negotiations with have got no where they're going to resume next week is it clear who the winners and losers would be a if no new nafta deal is reached and the u.s. does make good on its promise to race tariffs on canadian imports. well first of all all three countries with the arms there would be particular industries within each country that would be helped but most industries would be armed you know states and the rest of north america would be a weaker competitor our production in north america would be less efficient and united states consumers with a higher prices and canadian and mexican consumers that pay higher prices because
of the reintroduction of terrorists that haven't been in existence remember that most complex production takes place using long supply chains and we now produce things in north america books wagon that sucks made in tennessee uses. upholstery and dashboards that come from mexico transmissions and engines that all other places if you start imposing tariffs on those things it makes the for adoption more expensive and less competitive in a global setting i say that that's very clear professor joel tractor and thank you so much oh my pleasure. now here in germany the first senior government minister visited they scene of a deadly stabbing in the city of chemist's today the crime carried out last weekend allegedly by two migrants night bad deep divisions of tons of macro's decision to
welcome nearly a million migrants to end twenty fifteen following days of violent protests families minister unrest was a wake up call for the government to start listening to its people. the crime scene has become a place of remembrance family minister francisco defies the first member of the federal government to visit the site where a german man was stabbed to death last sunday the minister met political groups and pledged more funding for initiatives aimed at strengthening democracy. we shouldn't make the mistake of thinking that this is just a problem for saxony. it is a focal point because of the current events here. but this issue affects the whole country the whole of eastern germany but also the west. and a court in kemet says confirmed that one of the alleged attackers should have been deported in may twenty sixth eighteen saxony state premier says its officials are
not to blame the pumas and from the federal authorities are responsible for that it's now being investigated and the results will have to be made public. the accused iraqi man has several previous convictions he should have been deported to bulgaria within six months but the deadline expired the magazine der spiegel claims the man twice presented forged papers the authorities supposedly rejected his application for asylum on wednesday three days after the fatal step in kenneth's. course we want to find out what happened if mistakes were made we want to ensure they're not repeated in the future. and. more demonstrations are scheduled in chemists over the weekend but by the far right alternative for germany party as well as by church groups. and the days of the clocks backwards and forwards in spring and autumn here in europe could be done
but the european commission is today proposing an end of switch between summer and winter time the decision comes after an online poll found that a majority of respondents want to get rid of the hour switch to winter time. the online survey was the largest in the e.u.'s history four point six million europeans took part by far the most of those were german in total eighty percent said they were in favor of getting rid of the hour difference between winter and summer time. so the european commission president john claude a young says that people will get what they want. you started does or problem now it's up to the number of states and the european parliament to take action the european parliament has been heading in this direction for years anyway it will happen there's no sense in asking people and once they respond disregarding their response behaving as if it weren't put on record people wanted to will do it for muslims so t.w.
has been out on the streets of people's reaction to scrapping daylight saving time whether they thought the clock should stay or winter or summer time. they are finished i think it's great switching to daylight savings time it works i think it's a good idea a good idea i would keep the time the same all year round we need as much even tempered this in this world as we can possibly get as if from this it well i think it's not so bad one out doesn't make such a big difference if it really does save energy. i think it should be the same time all year round that would be best for everyone on this because then you won't have to bother adjusting clocks i also think that change doesn't make much sense anymore it's hard which i would you prefer summertime only to turn a few liberties a month so i would prefer summertime in the evenings there's so much to do and when it's still light then it's much better the asleep isn't it to divide i would hate the winter time but it was maybe winter time in summer it's not easy to go to bed
when it's still light outside humans on this have the flu i voted to get rid of the time change but in favor of summer time of the month it wouldn't be bad i wouldn't notice any difference so you can do what you want i don't really care. well dr data heads the department for sleep medicine at best and head big hospital here in berlin welcomed the w. where are you on this argument to change the clocks backwards and forwards and twice a year or leave them as they are clearly change the clocks twice a year because the cars humans like all animals live in on this planet do have an internal clock. they have been synchronized daily by light and darkness and and if you not live in at the crater like we in europe do. we get a change in the rhythm of our internal clocks and so we function completely
different during the summer time and during winter time so what we actually would need would be a change of about an hour and minute and a half every day and i don't think that that is going to work so we need a change of a broader change like like an hour it's freezing logic what's damage does it would do that if the clocks didn't change well we're live in some kind of internal d. synchronize ation any cell of your body has its own twenty four rhythm all of them being synchronized to each other and they get in puzzled every day a little bit more or less and if you're if these are puzzled then you live in a state of constant jetlag you're living in the state of constant shift work and that is not good for your health if only cells are puzzled by a minute and a half every day i'm going to be more puzzled by our. twice
a year well that's that's one thing but we completely. are working different and summer time that is people and burn limb sleep an hour longer during winter time and then during summertime so that's up to the clock you at least resting right at an hour long run into the adaptation to season the way all face in each and any one of us so this this change of clock is just the adaptation to this. g.'s seasonal change and that takes place in all of us any any year anyway i found that fascinating because didn't it. i would have thought as a lay person that it's to do with lights and in most industrialized countries where we can switch the lights on owings we can switch it off when not sort of bound by whether the moon is out or the other side is out well that's that's a new field and signs that is light and health and that's only starting the bard to
twenty years ago and we're working on that and finding out that we indoors live in actually in some kind of biological darkness here in the studio we do have bright lights but most of us at home or even at the workplace at the eye level we have something like fifty locks maybe one hundred larks but people living outside they have one hundred thousand lux so these hundred lux are not really bright like and you're right light is the side gaber for humans but we're not good enough for some leave everything as it is that dr data could thank you so much fascinating. when i search for the day but as ever they come zation continues online you'll find a sound twitter w. news will fill go don't forget to use the hash tag the day that's all for this week who will leave you with around a grand day's musical tributes to everything from. her
