available before the summer. you want you know you news mixed up business news with one called the general should be brought back to. the. people to say here's to us. trying. to use reporter every weekend on the job. and you may know yes it's really new and how it all stands just one chance of that when we bring you an angle that matt hall as you've never heard her before
surprised to so with what this was supposed to is magical really what moves. on some who talk to people who followed her along the way admirers and critics alike now as the world's most powerful woman shaping her there if you're joining us from eccles law stops. an economy firing on all cylinders that's how analysts are describing the faster than expected economic growth in the u.s. last quarter but wall street is less than happy our correspondent tells us why. brussels takes in about the gave the economy the european commission launches a public consultation into the rights of casual workers. and when the chips are down to realize how important they are we take a look at how savvy conductors became the oil of the digital age. this is
devalued business i'm to nelda milan in berlin so happy you can join us. the u.s. economy grew slightly faster than expected in the 4th quarter with official numbers pegging g.d.p. at 4 point one percent government stimulus help bolster consumer spending and a housing boom also lifted growth in the final quarter of last year but overall amid the pandemic the u.s. economy contracted 3 and a half percent for the full year the biggest drop since world war 2 analysts expect a quick rebound as the vaccine rollout continues. our financial correspondent yens court joins us now from new york yes at that data might have been optimistic but wall street is less than thrilled what's going on well less than thrilled is to put it mildly we had quite a sell off for not wall street in the thursday's session especially technology
shares in the form of finance that couple is it dropped by more than a suite of percent but also blue chips off to the record the day prior down by more than 500 points clearly an improving economy is good news overall but that also brings back all those inflation fears you can see that the yield of the 10 year treasury is reaching the highest level in about a year and that is a sign that at least the market for to save it but disciplines are concerned about inflation and just to add one more word to the economic news here is d.p. numbers are improving we're still a far cry from where we were a year ago and also if you look at the labor market we got the weekly jobless claims still on a highly elevated level but still those numbers came in better by about 100000 claims and then expected well rebound as we know is not the same as recovery but there is one market participant that's become the clear winner for today and that
is what what more can you tell us. yeah the stock actually is up i believe by 6 or 700 percent in comparison to last year or more during our came out was their quarterly results and basically a year ago didn't have a revenue at all now and deposit water then a revenue of about $5570000000.00 and for the full year and they expect to and actually have a revenue which they're weak seeing of about $18000000000.00 they might produce $700000000.00 doses this year and then $1400000000.00 doses next year by the way so $18000000000.00 and that's the figure that sees for this year pfizer just a couple of weeks ago said they expected to make about $15000000000.00 because the big scene but you can't really compare those 2 numbers because when fi is the gave
all those figures that was just for the so far existing orders but clearly also pfizer and the german partner beyond take will receive more orders so that number will also go up through the year but overall clearly. making quite some honey it was the recently approved a reccy and that stock was one of the of the year where shining stars on wall street in the thursday session well certainly a lot depends on those vaccines and that was dan's quarter for us in new york thank you very much. now to some of the other global business stories making news twitter is aiming to expand its user base and double its sales to $7500000000.00 by $22031.00 way the social media company wants to boost revenue is to let users charge followers to see previous posts with exclusive material the feature will be called super follows. russia has lowered the domestic price of its v coronavirus vaccine by half to just under $10.00 euros trade minister dennis

apps and food delivery sites are set to come under increased scrutiny. it's long been controversial ride sharing apps like say they drive as a self-employed whereas unions want them to be treated as employees with health benefits and paid time off it's the same for delivery workers and others taking part in the so-called gig economy now the european commission is launching a consultation aimed at improving the conditions for platform workers saying so. some are getting a raw deal across europe people who works who platform well they risk to be left without income and they're not always all for national support missions during lockdowns and even those who have work that koreas of the drivers well they sometimes have really poor working conditions. normal hour shift or little or
no social protection should they fall in and no pension scheme no access to training or skills development as a 1st step to addressing these issues the e.u. is asking trade unions and employee associations for their feedback on what the bloc should do to support good economy workers it's just the 1st stage on the road to new regulation and the platform operators will be watching closely. earlier we spoke to the e.u. commissioner for jobs and social rights nicholas schmidt and asked him if clamping down on tech platforms could backfire and put people out of work. no i don't think so i am not questioning practical work organisation this is something which is part of the you with how this economy functions but on the other hand we have to make sure that people who are working on these platforms of all the platforms that the question that they have health insurance that they are also had sushi protected
that they have an insurance against accidents these are part of our social norm lou social protection systems and we should not build an economy of the 21st century going backwards somewhere in the 19th century before bismarck so i i would not be in favor of that that's why we need some concrete action here so if they're having a hard time buying a playstation 5 game console the global semiconductor shortage is probably to belabor a shortfall of the little chips is slowing down major industries now this is something i had taken a special interest in how did chips get so important here is what i learned. you don't buy them directly but trust me you need them so when the silicone chips are down what happens well we're finding out. the auto sector has been hit hard
with car companies around the world pulling the brakes on production although they're not the only ones makers of gadgets and popular electronics are feeling it too the chip shortage could be why you're having a hard time finding a p.s. 5 or a flex. about one trillion chips are made a year that's about $128.00 for every person on the planet. suffice to say the world runs on chips slash semiconductors so why are we coming up short the pandemic changed consumer behaviors we're buying personal computers new phones new tablets x. boxes so we can work from home and to cope with the lock downs in companies upgrading their digital infrastructure to enable remote working and all these purchases and driving up the thing and what ships at the beginning of a pandemic we have estimated economic downturn industries such as the automakers
they slash the chip purchases and but they calming is a shot bounce back sooner than expected with more demands for cars carmakers keep limited invent stories right now out there buying buying buying cars the coronavirus crisis reshape supply and demand chip companies are scrambling and if there is an industry that can simply quickly ramp up production or ask its clients to do without its products for a while or shift its manufacturing elsewhere rapidly it's the chip industry so why shouldn't have been spread across countries as the cost of communication has gone down along with you know the cost transportation so this is the largely seen as a good thing to spread the production of said we cannot use another high tech components across country you know kind of base from some sort of fundamental theories of economics and that by doing so you could reduce the cost of production thereby increasing efficiency in complex supply chains. may stretch around the
world but especially asian companies lead in producing chips taiwan's t.s.m. c. is the world's largest contract manufacturer for semiconductors it seems how to reassure governments like car export reliant germany that it will try to prioritize auto chips but the kind of make has already taught a painful lesson. cold it's also sure the global supply chains are are relatively easily destroyed in many industries i know they probably need to be rethought and or should lower redundancies built and. not simply means more sites globally introducing me saying. it's an ill country's interest to ensure a dependable supply research and development manufacturing closer to home having more and varied suppliers and making the supply chain shorter are going to be key so when the chips are down it's a good time for a countries of the world to think about how best to invest to make sure the supply
chains stay up in the future. fascinating stuff and that's all for me as the business team here in berlin if you want more from us check out our website at v.w. dot com slash business we're also on facebook and twitter thank you for watching. concert. opposition parties in pakistan have been upping the pressure on prime minister imraan khan in a series of recent mass protests they say that he is a puppet of the military and has mismanaged the economy as inflation's fire my guest this week from islamabad is fall watch out or a pakistani minister for science and technology what has his government achieved who is calling the shots in pakistan conflicts are. 60 minutes. don't. stay up to date don't miss our highlights. program

bicycle pool in nairobi many residents of the city have taken to cycling as a means to commute independent. i'm christine one it's good to have you have been a northeastern nigeria is reeling from fresh attacks this week that have left holes of people dead in 3 states on bandits burned down houses and killed at least 18 villages in could do not add katsina states now these attacks came after 9 children playing on a football field were killed when suspected islamists fired rockets at civilians in my degree in borno state on tuesday evening in all hundreds of people have been killed in all the nigeria by criminal gangs carrying out robberies and kidnappings adding to security challenges in nigeria field by communal violence in central
states and islamised insurgencies in the northeast. it's the worst attack on the city of my degree in over a year suspected insurgents targeted a residential area using rocket propelled grenades locals say the assaults began in the evening just as many were finishing work and went on for hours. among the places reported to have been hit are a children's playground and a football pitch. when it was happening my place of work was close by i just saw something red coming and it fell hit many people and it killed many people. everybody was distressed and the only possible solution for us is to pray and where. the governor of the state visited the injured in hospital. all of the dead and wounded
a civilians. the governor described it as a sad moment for the city. he also set a new approach was needed to try to prevent such attacks in future. the only possible solution is to deploy technology. under detect. and informing. autumn's into the tongue what to do to holland. for now though it seems the government is unable to give people here the protection they need from attacks by militants. now the attacks come less than a month after president mahmoud abbas hari replaced his long standing military chiefs amid worsening violence in the country earlier i spoke to security analyst could be a a double and i asked him if the changes in the military would have approved the security situation. we do not think. in this illusion to leave security
challenges in one year there are 27 ministries departments and agencies within a year and security subsect of the military just forward of the 27. groups this for the other 23 are not good then we're not seeing any significant improvement they are. going to. the root cause of insecurity. i mean the government then unfortunately if they. continue and it as talk about the security situation because it does appear from the reports that come out and i care whether it's an attack that is suspected to be bad. in another part of the country where when bandits attack saying people waiting school children what is your sense about what really needs to get the situation the security situation and the control in nigeria talking about governance major point would be to restore
social order which is continuously being depleted. so any measure that would tell read all about social order would be instrumental and one of the most important element is do it in the efficiency and effectiveness of the administration of criminal justice correctly. just if it's not able to point. you have a lot of offense is being committed. the perpetrators are not being punished for a lot of reasons corruption one of that we've come i think your institutions we didn't really know just justice system started from the law enforcement agencies should have the capacity to arrest presented itself and through the courts and then the courts themselves have a lot. correctional preview of this weakness is that of the war and restore social
order a shortage misprision of criminal justice system to point which often doesn't i don't know but jury of impunity among especially the political looked at the huge perception by the manger of the new political act of unfortunately. this type of impunity. is wrong and they're not going to because the right. protection under law to be you've got the lack of accountability to the girl got no one or that stuff the computer went down the security analyst in a butcher thank you. thank you for. police and gonna have raided and shut down the office of an l.g. rights group in the capital accra the opening office into last month was followed by public outcry with religious groups politicians and anti-gay rights organizations calling on the government to close it down. and spun it
as it is standing by in the capital good to see isaac out what reasons did the police give for closing the facility. so the police hasn't really spoken about the marta except what we know is that the owner of the facility i actually called the police and informed them that the facility that has been in and useful sometime now belongs to him and so he needed the support to go in and close down. that is where the police are involved so the police are ok we don't know what charges or what reason really close in it down it was on the orders of the owner of the facility. isaac this has been described as a community center and a work space what was the the the space intended for.
the one i visited a. few days ago the leaders of the center hot say that they needed a please where members of the community can come and food free and discuss issues that affect them counseling and 6 all cords that's. meant to be a place where these people within the community come to and 6 supports from the organization where they need to see all the discrimination that claiming that you were facing the community how the congo about them and overcome them so it was really a pleas for them to really fusees and full wanted because they really didn't have that in the country for many many years now. i think what did the at the organizers of the center of planned to do now. so you are really not available to speak on record except to have said that the remaining resolute members of the community
to remain calm. indicate that members of the community sure remain. disappointed in the action of their place and their facility to remain resolute and to continue to push for the rights to be respected. for them to also speak on the. rights respected that is a case now it also made it also must be put on record that many of. the community because we don't want to be fearful for their lives and threats from people in a community that's isaac reporting in accra thank you. cycling has taken off in the kenyan capital nairobi cheering the coronavirus pandemic as residents seek safer ways to travel to work and cut transport costs out despite the lack of bike lanes on most roads many have taken up pedalling and
dutch the city's notorious traffic jams. the daily commute to work is never uneventful for stephen odhiambo weaving his way through nairobi's ever troublesome gridlocks since the pandemic hit kenya in march last year the 30 year old has avoided public transport he'd rather take his chances on 2 wheels on the capital's chaotic roads the fear was there. was. this push of the road. his commute is 15 kilometers long on roads with no cycle lanes so he has to contend with the unpredictable driving of trucks buses and motorcycles. if i don't show you the benefit of why i'm cycling and what you smush safe and healthy are for you you want to see the benefit of it like for me pos on my vipassana story when it started in
april until. december last year. i had lost 20 kids is. in that spot on the cycling more jim norton earning more dieting many more nairobi residents have also taken up cycling since the pandemic started bicycle sellers report booming business karumba said he's brazil's went up by more than half in 2020. 2020 this. compared to 29 to me in terms of sales because you find that people wanted to save more just to keep fit to commute from walk from pointed clinch me. mostly since cycling is a sport and they wanted to keep fit because. while cycling is often a more affordable means of travel you can be a dangerous activity in a city like nairobi kenya as national transport authority estimates 69 cyclists
died in road accidents in the city last year that's prompting calls for more action to protect those on 2 wheels. we hear. has been good for cycling it has shown policymakers that people who walk people watch to cycle and they have to whether they like it or not they have to find a way of ensuring people can get to their destination is safe and sound it's no longer forcing ourselves to share roads with. terrorists we do need space dedicated specifically for cyclists and for a distance there are some. changes to notes back in 2015 or 30 days committed 20 percent of the road budget to non-motorized transport and today bike lanes are being set up in the city center a sign of hope for a smoother ride in the future. and that's the finale for. conflicts nash africa on facebook and into today will leave you with picture more people and bicycles
can get into but it's not just the animals that all suffering in school environment we went on a journey to find ways out a new question if you want to know how over in clifton the truth i'm culturists changed as we think of listening to our podcast on the green. influences all as the name suggests influential but they've got serious competition now and it's not human also coming up today on alt. culture. a moving photographic documentation of the timeless health workers. everything. in chanting. of hamburg.
model or influence from dream job of course you've got to look good and have a flair for trends but there's lots of competition and it isn't human anymore for the last 2 years there have been virtual influences the models conceived by humans and created on a computer pose with perfect fall composed music and sometimes even represent political and social views and they are attracting the major brands and fashion houses because they can work 24 hours a day. great and they compete to do several jobs at once but they're not real digital models like. you can see. from germany are shaking up the fashion and. the possibilities are endless so i can put them under water i can happen on
a volcano i can put them on another planet this is what's so fascinating about it. is that artificial start new nori the munich based graphic designer launched the manga style avatar in 2018 for him it is more than just a model new nori has a real biography she's 21 years old and studies in paris she goes shopping meets friends and gets involved in social issues. time is clearly right for your basically. ation you nor he is currently the most successful virtual character in europe on instagram fashion houses such as such a move and tommy hilfiger the fictional character for campaigns. top models like not only campbell and heidi klum like to hang out with her new norreys
otherworldly look it's intentional. i think also working with a digital character is something very different and very different experience than what you know from the very classical field. artificial digital figures brand ambassadors cameron james wilson also thinks this is where it's at the british fashion photographer and free the artist from way mouth exclusively broca's avatars with his agent see the digital 1st creation shooter graham was a worldwide sensation when i 1st heard. it was going to happen and everyone. just. a lot. lots of. image. shoot doesn't have a fictional race you may but she is very successful on the internet together with
other digital models she appears here in a social media campaign for the french luxury label. the coronavirus pandemic is increasing demand in the fashion world for alternatives to human beings in 2020 over the designers at home think the fashion week used to animate models to show off their creations will digital avatars push out the real models and influences most fashion industry analysts don't think so. i think that is an evolution that will continue to exist. but i think that after the past year people are also excited to go somewhere and interact with people and see clothes on real people mentioned. how do our digital friends see you.
and it's not only the influencers that a fake but the followers too as shown in a new h.b.o. documentary called fake famous make you think it shows how so many young people want to become influencers how fast they fake that online profile inventing a fabulous lifestyles of the cool being photographed in fabricated exotic places for instance bands raise their profile of a buyout fowler's ins of make believe followers to reach internet of course you. but now something very genuine this weekend billie i wish fans around the world can watch the world's a little blurry a wonderful documentary about irish showing real insights into how she makes music with her brother finn and also the importance of her parents and her family in general a real founder. as soon as the pandemic started photographer patrick decided
to document it concentrating on all the extraordinary work being done by health workers his project is called there is glory in prevention the photos are not spectacular but in their own way very moving and show how all our health workers go about their daily business with no thoughts for their own safety their only goal is to save lives. on the road with stuttgart photographer patrick your car when the corona virus pandemic 1st hit he like many others felt powerless and paralyzed. but i would say missionary to me that i quickly realized that something in me was driving me to somehow capture this historical moment i soon became quite dissatisfied with how it was being reported i just couldn't make heads or tails of all the numbers and the endless discussions with experts and i wanted to get to know the people working on the front line in the fight against the virus to get to
know their fears and concerns but also their day to day work procedures. our words of life accounts were down. i wanted to make tangible what nurses and doctors do and what patients suffer. on because i photographed for a total of 60 days there were very many situations that stayed with me but i was also able to get to know one man in particular they might still be a 67 year old who had a severe case of covert 19 beginning in early march i photographed him in hospital and then the doctors contacted his relatives and they also thought the project was great so i experience this whole journey felt the fears together with the family and that made a big impression on me. and talked. his images document the effect of the
pandemic on our everyday lives. thanks to support from that site from the spiegel online reporter community and a state grant the coronavirus report he initially made for stern magazine blossomed into a cross media project and even included an open air exhibition 40 i didn't just want to show corona images in a gallery or in an arts context in a narrow framework but i really wanted to go into the city centers it's working like this but i wanted to reach a broad audience and i think this location here which brings in a diverse audience is absolutely the best place for it. with his often medical topics patrick wants to reach and move people he makes close connections with the subjects of his photographs what do they think about his work. and tennant you don't usually learn much about the patients and the people in the
background but they're all real people who live their lives and who come into contact with the situation he presents this in a very sensitive a very delicate way. patrick young because portraits confront us with the people who are fighting the pandemic people who deserve more than just the occasional public round of applause. a dire omma can be a miniature scenic painting viewed through a keyhole all a model showcase with 3 dimensional figures a minute just seen through glass the artist. deals with this latter type trying to create the perfect illusion of reality in miniature we visited in studio in hamburg to find out more about these special illusions. whimsical surreal and magical scenes make up the diagrams of hamburg artist under
the harbor my style her art and her profession involve creating miniature 3 dimensional worlds in a display case. its enemies i think i remember when i was little i actually wanted to become a space traveler primatologist told the sea diver that's there to my dreams now i'm lucky enough to have come to die rama saying look i can make anything i want to reality it may be a very restricted space a little box but i can put anything into it i can conjure up any wells i link. bondage marked. before she assembles a dire among some to have a maestro works out her ideas in mood boards and sketches she makes many of the smallest objects herself like these tiny books for instance. she buys some of the figures in shops and customize and such as these camels.
and she uses an electric jigsaw to fashion tiny furniture in all colors and sizes from scraps of her. mind and hope my principal scale is 127 that's the size here but i can also use things of different scales they may be much bigger heroes. smaller but it all comes together that makes these wells a little crazier and more surreal we. have a minister studied art in the northern german city of a job as a model builder eventually brought her to the diagram she works on her phantasmagorical display cases for up to 6 months she calls them boxes of illusions . given my moment that always comes a moment when i realized ok now everything's right now it's done that's when the
colors are balanced and all the seams are in place and that little twinkle of humor has to be there the funny little scenes of course the magical moment comes when the light goes on. hamburg's miniature of wonderland museum commissioned her to create a book a different kind of travel guide for the northern german port city with its many well known sites like the hamburg harbor. the old philharmonie. found this by church that warehouse district for photos in effect free of the tiny figures from the display cases and give them the run of the city. this road again some time i'd like to create a dire almost much more depth half a metre or a metre with lots of space. and i'd like to build one that has real water in it. something like an aquarium. with or without real water under however my stars diameters back in the viewers to take the plunge and immerse themselves in tiny
