4:21 am
people for the funeral services. unfortunately we had to convert the hall into a storage space because we could no longer keep up with the deaths victims the elephant. it's a difficult situation for us. because relatives can usually say goodbye to their loved ones here. but at the moment that's not possible because the move leave. no room for a funeral service not all of the coffins represent deaths from the coronavirus but many of them are marked so. these people have to end their lives without a final hug from their loved ones luke spanish cares for the bereaved he is a pastor and develop a. family sometimes only realize how dangerous the coronavirus can be once they've lost a loved one to it. when does your liberal me and i have contact

with families who have lost a relative because of covert 19 who was cornered they are in a state of shock and reconsidering things this 1st phase of mourning the so-called shock phase lasts longer for them because something inexplicable something in comprehensible has been added namely this pandemic. plan to me. the pandemic is far from over. get a hold monster is worried about the future. the mood of the assuming that the number of infections remains high it follows that the number of deaths will to be done for these and the 2 and so on and that means we won't see any relief here until mid february at the earliest so the carnage follows then. it is a winter of mourning and as it is in many places in the world during the pandemic.

if you scan facts initiative aims to provide for recoveries with freak i think $1000.00 vaccinations and hundreds is one of them will not be enough of. a glimmer of hope in the battle against the pandemic in honduras in february the country should chill to receive its 1st shipment of vaccines against covert 19 the initial shots will go to frontline workers on the elderly over $3600.00 people are known to have died after contracting the corona virus in honduras the deputy health minister says it's unfortunate there is no international law to regulate the distribution of covert vaccines like the one made by biotech pfizer. by he says the rich countries have practically monopolize the vaccine and are
4:24 am
denying developing countries access to more vaccine doses that have access so a lot when i think i like obviously where the hunger in health ministry says some $4000000.00 doses are needed to immunize 20 percent of the population it's unclear whether one jurors will meet the target this year. alongside the doses acquired through the kovacs initiative the government's also purchasing vaccines directly from manufacturers. but global supplies are limited and expense of. it's not my experience of the lamb in the sea we have to beg internationally why because one jurist as a poor country has already used the money for other things. so we don't have money to buy vaccines from buy on tech pfizer. well there are several 100 people who are going to have for you sort of based on current orders placed by the government the one juror in medical association estimates that far less than 20 percent of the
4:25 am
population will be inoculated this year and many hung jury and believe the government should shoulder part of the blame. we put our trust in god above all and hope for positive results despite the negative expectations of some patients. but we are meant to think if the government or doctor faster we would have had vaccines here long ago. or has to no longer be remembered never. were lacking good management the problem isn't a lack of effective vaccines despite the vaccine skeptics it's simply the same people every person that can know how to get it in about. the vaccines can't come soon enough new infections and dad screws sharply in january in honduras.

nothing is a nothing. sexual assault is part of everyday life for women in egypt it's time to resist. the filmmaker shows a young female superhero walking down the street and islamised clerics are putting their foot down initiatives against sexual violence to the. next. revising forgotten churches from their slumber and then redesigning the. business has become a mission for artist muslim students and. she is challenging church congregations with islam. the artist who saved the church says. it's w. got some hope to it for your bucket list. for
4:30 am
some. and some great cultural memorials to boot. travel we go. welcome to global 3000 coming up. russia's congested capital moscow embarks on a green transport revolution. night skies that are anything but dark as we take a look at the harmful effects of life. but 1st we take you to egypt where
4:31 am
a filmmaker is challenging the culture of silence around sexual harassment. sexual harassment is hugely widespread the term covers a range of experiences from unwanted groping receiving inappropriate calls or messages. to being the victim of a physical sexual assault. a british study of the l.g. miti community found that 68 percent of gay bi and trans people have suffered sexual harassment at work. women are especially affected according to the results of a european study an overwhelming majority. of women in france denmark and sweden have been the victim of sexual harassment. but it's a problem all over the world in our next report we need a filmmaker in egypt. to change the narrative around the issue.
4:32 am
tara she heard his latest documentary has touched a nerve in egypt. in its 26 year old filmmaker explores attitudes towards public displays of affection a previous film she made dealt with the issue of sexual harassment many many in the country downplay the seriousness and extent of the problem dismissing crimes of this nature as mere misdemeanors for terrorists or harder taking on this issue meant creating a powerful protagonist and then i started to think you know what if i was super hero then i really wanted to be very but it happened for me so i interpret it in a film. the protectionist is a 14 year old christian girl with a keen sense of justice the budding heroine ponders what a good disguise could be and finds the answer on the street.
4:33 am
in her superhero disguise she has men who sexually harass women. a christian woman in the car critics say it's an abuse of islamic values but the filmmaker replies that it's a subject which affects us. thankfully i never experience something very tragic. but i definitely like just walking in the streets of egypt if you like 100 percent or 99 percent of women experience sexual harassment and the least as i . have constant calls which is the normal woman experience in egypt i had a home and come into my building before. in the film for example men see tight jeans as an invitation. to. the heroine's message.
4:34 am
above all charter criticizes the fact that sexual attacks are mostly kept quiet she and her allies want to see that change. the scholars of the islamic us our university are considered the moral compass of muslims in egypt they made their own short film aimed at tackling sexual harassment while the scholars are advocates for what they call decent clothing for women then this it is clear. where there's no justification harassment imagine living somewhere else that are certain dress codes does that justify sexual harassment absolutely not in the event of sexual assault it's a matter for the judiciary. there in miss. go to the or far as he is they say never before have the clergy come out so firmly on the matter. she let him meets with the heroine of his short film just mina the director wants to broach the
4:35 am
subject of sexual assault in a feature length film just mina is passionate about the project because it affects her directly. when shot or directed yes mino in the short film the actress was just 14 years old i mean obviously it was a thing to me and i knew what it was but once we started so many and it happened while we were on set they were just like making fun of the costume saying things about my body it really opened my eyes the whole situation and kind of gave me the families and some isn't. tyrone charter's path to the cinema won't be easy his short film has gained international recognition but in egypt the subject of sexual assault is still to blue and considered inappropriate for the silver screen. but the manager of the independent cinema so i was here is interested. for she has it's a relief she's often accused of lambasted in egypt. but i'm looking for international
4:36 am
audiences for this film because one i think the topic of sexual harassment in general is a universal topic it's not something that just happened happens in egypt it happens everywhere it's not just in egypt. attorney rashly are on the run represent several women who have exposed sexual assault and violence on social media even naming perpetrators the me too movement has brought many previously untold stories of harassment to light for the 1st time large numbers of women are breaking their silence. their accounts that sprung up over the summer of 2020 brought attention to the issue to a wider audience egyptian women who do go to the police stations to report such harassment do not always get. a positive. or encouragement to file the report there's a lot there's sometimes pressure to kind of you know settle the. case
4:37 am
amicably by getting the perpetuator to you know apologize. gender relations are the main theme and she hurt his films she asks people on the street questions they've never been asked before kissing before marriage yes or no she wants to bring to produce out of the shadows and into the light tara she says the subject of sexual harassment is one of the most important in egypt because it's too often downplayed when it's just like a word. no one really talks about it it kind of. you know it wasn't a big deal just forget about it but these little things add up and the matter and the effect the woman's life those who are her us live. so i really think that we should enforce laws to. stop those.
4:38 am
repression and discrimination a part of life for many women around the world on our new facebook channel d.w. women you'll find stories about those taking a stand and inspiring others to do the saying d.w. women gives a voice to the women of our world. the chief. is a strong independent. my name is a sound. i'm 17 years old i'm from. south africa ok

4:41 am
so many things i. was. afraid of. so i think i have a better. these days barely ever experience the. constant illumination for granted. years of official life. james prescott. and most famously thomas. revolutionized our lives by making light bulbs readily available. but the effect of all those artificial lines can have
4:42 am
a damaging effect on both the environment and our health. i have never ever seen anything like this obviously or the great reluctance it's a magnitude 6.6 earthquake. in 1904 los angeles was hit by a strong earthquake that caused chaos on the streets and the black ops busy as you look out your window it's probably fish dark red herring the blackout many people called observatories and even 111 not because the earth was shaking but because they saw a giant silvery cloud in the sky that cloud was in fact the milky way countless stars they had never seen before you maybe haven't heard much about it yet but light pollution doesn't really consume stars it seriously affects our health and the environment. when the 1st light bulb was turned on in the 19th century it marked
4:43 am
a real revolution night suddenly became day. it's great with electric light we can travel work. go out on a party whatever the time of. the pioneers might not have expected then mention to take over the whole world in fact in many places electric light has banished. terms of proportional changes to the world the introduction of this late into the night is one of the most dramatic changes that we've made to the biosphere. this is . he researches artificial light emissions from cities and the impact today more than 80 percent of the world's population is no longer experienced. for example nights are so bright in singapore that people contradict their vision for darkness today scientists are warning of the dangers of artificial light at night it did me
4:44 am
. oh and that's when i decided. this is the most bizarre activists in india. reduce night but scientists now consider artificial light at night a form of pollution. during the entire development of. multicellular organisms. and edibles that vertebrates mammals primates and humans during death whole time there was this constant signal coming from the environment this is daytime this is night time this is the lunar month. in areas that experience strong light pollution that signal is effectively has been dramatically take. industrialisation over the past century has led to assertion artificial illumination so we see that most countries in the world are becoming
4:45 am
brighter this is accelerated in recent decades particularly in asian cities all violent dots on this map show new light sources installed in india between 20122016 it's just you know orrible and inaudible it's just so you would you know you could you can just see the aren't going to. combine but. this is the view from the u.s. apartment in mumbai he lives in the 7th floor with his family and is literally in the spotlight lights from nearby streets and the stadium shine directly into their apartment lights used to york the lake really hammered sometimes built. and the more i used to get this job i don't like you know bright lights coming into my. bedroom and it differently to me because i could not. curtains and sleep masts fail to improve the situation so in 2018 he complained to the authorities claiming arrives. at 1st they ignored him even though studies link i did fish like to eye
4:46 am
injuries sleeplessness. and maybe even depression some studies of chip workers have indicated that exposure to light at night could increase the risk of breast cancer but why there's a hormone. that are brain makes called militant in which this is a signal of darkness. when we don't get that hormone produced when we don't produce that hormone because we are exposed to so much later apartment or as a shift worker. there in the whole working of this whole biological clock system becomes problematic. sleep digestion. and blood pressure are regulated by this biological clock and here 2 of the greatest light inventions of recent decades come into play ladies and screens they're very bright and very efficient and that comes at a price we may not be able to do anything about bright lights outside but the lights
4:47 am
we have at home are often literally in our hands. the problem is not only brightness but also color blue lights from phone displays screens and any disease is similar to daylight while lights in general can suppress the production of miller tone and blue light from screens and a disk can do so more strongly that's why experts at harvard recommend not using bright screens or any delights for 2 to 3 hours before going to bed or switching to dimmer and warmer shades of light. the light at night doesn't only threaten our health there is a tremendous change because increased brightness at night time is new. this is a bill from the life and it's institute of freshwater ecology and inland fisheries in berlin she researches the impact of light on ecosystems live it's not unusual that life has been that. corals birds and many other species of wildlife struggle

when it's light at night where it used to be dark freshly hedged turtle struck make their way into the sea but lives near the shore can mislead them they had inland and die artificial light at night contributes to the decline in insect populations one study says the decline amounts to 100000000000 every summer in germany alone such light also contributes to a decrease in nocturnal pollination activities a u.k. study found that where there's nighttime lighting trees but earlier and lose their lives later than elsewhere all these various of facts and different creatures and plans together affect the environment as a whole so what can we do as individuals that might sound obvious but turn on lights only when and where you need it and then turn it off again on that emotion sensor turn it on and off or you use lamp shades for instance to block unwanted stray lights use lights with a warmer tone they can be just as efficient. and
4:49 am
a lot of intensity when possible dimming is the magic word here. and entire cities even entire countries can adopt such solutions france for example has banned sky beams and in some places says times when lights in public spaces have to be dimmed or switched off as well as keeping the brightness of lamps and ecological the sensitive areas. imo create. this is eisegesis you. and you know it needs that need to be. protests from citizens. have signaled they're. on the indian ministry of environment to implement. it. one day.
4:50 am
light pollution is just one of viral mental problems in urban areas. is another serious issue especially in emerging economies. poor public transport systems often leave people with no alternative energy travel by car they end up spending hours stuck in traffic. take moscow as an example in 2020 the average car journey took 54 percent longer than it should have congestion more than 3 hours instead of 2 city officials have a plan to change. that p.r. is already top of the line this logo says this is an electric bus attention grabbing and visible to everyone there are $500.00 of them in moscow more than any other

city in europe. the plan is for all buses in moscow to go electric by 2030. appears to have gone down well with the passengers. drive so smoothly that you can hardly feel anything it's so cold. i think electric buses are a great concept. recharging only takes a few minutes that's enough to power the buses on $36.00 routes. passengers can charge their cell phones on u.s.b. ports. project director. knows the advantages of the new buses. completely transforming moscow in terms of ecological public transport this is a new generation of electric busses there is fast dynamic and maneuverable as normal buses but they're also ecologically clean and don't make any noise. some
4:52 am
residents are mourning the old trolley buses from which only the contact lines remain eventually they'll go to. the bus driver yet again the mahoning used to drive a trolley bus to him the new electric buses are a big improvement. my crew from our boys in the past we always had to climb on the roof of the bus and switch out the contact to the connects to the current collector. during rain frost and snow it was a special year a taping with these buses it's not necessary up to a charging station recharge the battery and off you go but where does this power come from. have a unified energy system and all of the power plants and their electricity to it these can be atomic or wind powered power plants unfortunately we still don't know where the specific you know what i was come from and we don't you know much thought either. travis also electric power

and is expanding rapidly new stations are popping up at breakneck speed some of them in areas the tonto already built up. the transit system follows the demand many russians from poorer regions are moving to moscow which is a rich metropolis with millions of residents the metro is the fastest way to get from a to b. that you quoted. me this is happening at record speed. in 10 years the metro system has almost doubled in size. during this. yes the city has opened $145.00 new metro with the train stations and almost $44.00 more a planned by 2024 plus a 3rd metro bring is being felt. the new stations a state of the art and boast individual designs that even have little luxuries including a virtual library stops with text by russian also those that can be accessed by cell phone. but the expansion of
4:54 am
moscow's metro system has also generated criticism. this protest is in opposition to the expansion of the metro system people here are sad to see the green space overtaken by a metro line they believe the restructuring of moscow by its current mess is the wrong way to go they feel the modern moscow including the new metro lines isn't that this view is shared by local politician yes mean fuck me. must what must go isn't getting better all more beautiful the city is destroying itself and losing its uniqueness. yasmeen and other opponents say there's no reason for a station where because the district already has enough public transit. beyond that they say the metro line is much too shallow and threatens the foundations of old buildings. oh what is cords of wood how does that work as much as fast that means
4:55 am
without inspections or expert reports we've discovered that expert reports are bought and sold their findings aren't reliable they're just a formality they reports without a real foundation. in european democracies the speed with which moscow's metro was built would be unimaginable. but sure but what about those russians in all terra tarion regime many decisions can simply be carried out from above without considering public opinion that of course no. things may not more quickly but it was a state decides on the state does it but it often leads to mistakes when we don't ask the public what they think when they don't understand why they protest the deal . many moscow residents are welcoming the new transit possibilities including car sharing moscow has the biggest car sharing feat in europe 6 companies and 26000 cars. with these new sustainable transit
