political party celebrates games into regional elections the alternative for germany party says it's time for mainstream parties to see the a.f.d.c. not as a pariah but as an equal. i'm off to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome tonight a 1000000 people in the united states of florida georgia and south carolina have been ordered to evacuate their homes as one of the most powerful hurricanes ever approaches the atlantic coast hurricane dorian has been pounding the northern bahamas and is forecast to make landfall in the u.s. by tuesday. it may have been downgraded to a category 4 hurricane but dorian continues to do its worst. cars
bashing the bahamas the 2nd strongest storm on record has crushed cars snapped trees and ripped the roofs off homes floodwaters continue to choke roadways making it dangerous for residents to survey the damage the slow moving storm is expected to keep thrashing the island chain. the hammy and prime minister hubert minutes called the devastation unprecedented tweeting during remains an extremely dangerous storm our focus right now is rescue recovery and prayer just to the west and up the coast the southeastern u.s. is bracing itself and taking no chances airports canceling thousands of flights. we had to change our flight original flight we changed it again yesterday we changed again this morning so we're hoping this is once the charm and hospitals are evacuating patients. but we just started out by doing 6 mil plastic all around the house and people like britney that dell are boarding up their homes in the hopes
that they'll have something to come back to once the storm passes if it works it's totally worth it but florida's governor is warning residents against sticking around. when if you're ordered to evacuate you need to do that from palm beach county all the way up to nassau the florida georgia border all those coastal counties they've issued evacuation orders and and it's important that residents heed those calls get out now while you have time for. sure the south carolina and georgia have all issued evacuation orders during it's on track to reach their coast between late monday and wednesday night until then people here continue to prepare for whatever dorian brings. and for more now i'm joined by matthew he's a meteorologist and a journalist he joins us from washington d.c. matthew good evening to you we know that hurricane dorian is one of the most powerful storms to ever be recorded talk to me about where we are right now is it
getting stronger or do we know do we dare venture a guess of where it's going which course and which direction it's going to move it . reiser spent his assets for items in the bahamas they seem wind gusts over 252300 kilometers per hour for an extended period of 12 to 18 hours in some locales have been horrible there it was a come down slightly but that does not mean it's over again it's still wrapped in the bahamas where it goes next is a big wildcard at this point we think it should stay about 50 to 70 kilometers off shore of florida as it moves north but it will close in any little johnson track could prove disastrous for the florida mainland that i lost in the storm we know the united states the eastern seaboard bracing for the arrival and the bracing for a lot of damage a lot of damage that could be caused by the storm and as you just said wobbling we've heard a lot of forecasters talking about this storm has a tendency to maybe zigzag a lot why use that to the storms actually not suzanne yes more than the models that
we use to predict this storm are kind of back and forth and where that the storm will set up and that's because this storm is a very interesting storm but the same time it's a storm that is not really steered too much by other weather systems and so there's a storm system to the east a big high pressure ridge there was pushing the storm west up to the west there was a truck that was moving it in but those things are far enough apart right now that there's nothing to really pick up during the movement and so it's sitting there is spinning and which system it latches onto more will ultimately determine how close to the coast it gets and we have heard that with climate change we will have to expect more and more extreme weather events storms like during that we're going to see a lot more storms like dorian in the future would you say i'm hesitant to say more like dory but we will see more intense hurricanes so there's actually not necessarily consensus on whether or not we'll see more harkins in general no real long term trend but would you know that those at formal lightly be stronger the
ocean is stronger that when done into the atmosphere will favor stronger harkins some slightly more of these category 4 and category 5 storms will be the trend going forward. all right meteorologist journalist joining us tonight from washington d.c. with the latest on hurricane dorian matthew thank you. so here are some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world 4 bodies have been recovered during a rescue operation off the coast of california after a commercial diving boat called fire dozens of people are still missing and feared dead the 5 crew members aboard survived the incident for democracy activists have again taken to the streets of hong kong calls for a general strike with largely unheeded except for students and some hospital workers today's rallies followed the 13th and taking the weekend of protest which police stormed a train and beat and pepper sprayed people on board as you see there as they

britain and bracks it where prime minister boris johnson has backed off calling a snap general election at least for now it is a crucial week for reg sit with some lawmakers including the official opposition leader jeremy corbyn pushing for a parliamentary vote that would ban a new deal breaks it and postpone britain's departure from the european union now if they defeat the government johnson could be forced to call an election despite saying that he doesn't want to do that and that could be as early as wednesday here's what the prime minister had to say after an emergency cabinet meeting earlier today i say to show offerings in brussels that we are united you know put us in peace should vote with the government against cool beans wheatley's delay. i don't want an election you don't want an election let's
get on with the people's agenda let's get right seat done by. the 31st thank you very much. well our correspondent overbets will she is in london covering the story for us we asked her if m.p.'s who oppose a new brakes if they will heed johnson's call and vote with his government in these crucial votes this week here's what she said. they've built up quite a head of steam throughout the last days and there is an almighty pole struggle going on once again over it wrecks it between the prime minister and we still remember trees of me who had to sort of fit to survive this several times and palm and cheer in the back of house and we know that there are about 20 tory rebels if one of them is the former chancellor of the a check of fulfilment who is in that position interest amaze government and they all say there is no mandate for no deal
prexy it's moderate conservatives who say we do not want this and we really have to keep boris johnson from going that way from crèche written out of steam and so everybody here expects them to sort of take over the engine to tomorrow if they vote because boris johnson said he does not want an election botch that doesn't mean there is not going to be an election so observers here in london are pretty pretty clear in their opinion that they say he just said this to sort of tell everybody that if he would be forced into election into an election it would be their fault it would be the fault of labor of course and it would be the fault of tory rebels he would then not have another way out and had to call the election and everybody expects this to happen either late on wednesday all maybe on thursday that boris johnson will be right here in parliament and say yes we go to the belts
. w.'s barbie's will be reporting from london this is g.w. news live from berlin still to come if your best dress is dry clean only don't wear it to this room we're going to report on a whole new way to reach perience mozart's don giovanni in prague and it's all washroom where it's coming up in just a moment. well now to the politics of change and the politics of the street in eastern germany voters have been reacting to the results of sunday's state elections in brandenburg and saxony the far right alternative for germany party known as the a.f.d. became the 2nd strongest party in both states you know we use cape brady reports now from sanctioning state capital dresden. after months of anticipation the dust is settling here in dresden the result of sunday's election was yet another blow to germany's established big tent parties but anglo-american c.d.u.
still retained its 30th title as saxony strongest party. the friendly saxony one said state premie a michelle yoke for many people here in dress and sex in the state capitol it was somewhat every leaf the almost 3 quarters of voters didn't cast their ballots for the far right a.f.d. . now faced with the reality of day after day as sex and the 2nd strongest party locals seem to be taking a pragmatic approach as. it was a vote on the people have something to say whether i like it or not i didn't vote for the d. and now i'm came to see how the established parties deal with this and what solutions they can find. people have always voted for the c.d.u. in the s.p.d. and now this is a consequence so they can be taken seriously compared to germany's other so-called new states which were formally informant east germany things are going well in saxony the economy is strong the strongest in the former east and unemployment here
is by no means the highest in germany and yet 27 percent of voters here in saxony cuss their ballots for the far right. but despite the strength of the f.d.a. at the polls all of saxon his parties have ruled out forming a coalition with them. friends. i think it's a shame that the result can be respected in. the city you. won't see in a coalition. which party did you vote for that's why i voted for the f.t. what was your personal reason for your 1st and foremost because of the flood of refugees here and saxony we're not used to that at all and that's cos the people here. germany. since 2015 the number of foreigners in saxony has increased by one percent but even known f.t.v. it is can sympathize with some of the issues beyond the migration debate. and you
see the problems 1st and foremost in the rule areas will the circumstances that people have to live in there are catastrophe and the entire infrastructure has fallen by the wayside. saxony has made its voice heard now rate is from across germany's political spectrum awaiting to see if the government is listening for a united nations envoy is in cyprus today for talks with leaders of the divided island talks are scheduled with the presidents of the republic of cyprus and the breakaway northern part of the island which is occupied by turkey the u.n. has encouraged reunification ever since the island divided back in 1974 following the turkish military invasion the last round of talks broke down 2 years ago the w.'s frank kaufman has this report from an island where many are fed up with the division. the main shopping street in the cypriot capital neko is still divided
the pedestrian checkpoint marks the transition from the internationally recognized greek cypriot part of the island to the turkish occupied north. a sign here informs tourists that nicosia is the last divided capital city. europe is trying to overcome the situation he was elected as one of the island 6 parliamentarians early this year everyone here knows him. well i agree completely that are solution to the cyprus problem will be difficult but we cannot give up we have to fight looks real good through he wants the turks and greeks cypriots to negotiate to end the division his election in may was a surprising positive sign 6000 turkish cypriots voted for him the sociologist grew up in the turkish north but 25 years ago he became a professor at the university in the greek south and he represents both parties
a 1st for the island. some are hoping the time is ripe for a new negotiations mediated by u.n. secretary general antonio terrace the last negotiations he led between the president of greek cyprus and the turkish occupied north broke down in 2017. e.u. politician the make sense is that people on cyprus are frustrated as here in the turkish part of the island. but what we want to kind of piece that protects the rights of turkish cypriots you know month there's no other way we have a right to live here to this was once an ottoman territory we are turkish and we want our rights. here i hope so but hope to turn into disappointments here time and again all negotiations are always broken down why does that happen with and who's behind it. the mood is very similar in the greek south people i have no
expectations none at all it's all about power and international interests who have divided up and diminished our country what. rubbish nothing. like because turkey one of the. simple than it has been there before to play years if they want to do it they do tomorrow he was elected above all with the hope of renewed negotiations. but when i'm traveling in the occupied part and talk to people i always say to solve the cyprus problem you need couchman. if you can turkish means talking to one another. how can you solve a problem without talking about it without commish must. exactly. how to go to understanding others. and counters like this give me. hope.
as an e.u. parliamentarian representing both sides of the cyprus divide he hopes to find a solution to end that division once and for all. the greek government has started to transfer 1500 asylum seekers from the island of less forbes' to the mainland to ease overcrowding in the migrants camp there a recent spike in the numbers of migrants arriving on greek shores has increased the population to 1000 and that despite the fact that the camp is only designed to help 3000 people. on the move again these refugees on the greek island of less boss are anxious to be leaving the overcrowded conditions of the morea camp behind them albeit to conditions unknown in a different camp on the mine land i knew later i arrived there and said 9th of july and it's been one month and 20 days that i'm living in noria and after that i got
my ticket so now i'm moving to. integration because moria is not that good plays and it's very hard to live in such a and vitamin k. and trucks and buses transported the 1st 650 people and their worldly positions to the hobble with the ferry whited the massive logistical operation is the last resort for a processing system and a g. rist from a recent spike in arrivals. by by this. old 5 of greece's island detention centers were already full to bursting when more than $7000.00 more refugees arrived on the shores just last month. it was the tipping point for the greek government to hold an emergency session and announce plans to tighten its border controls and speed up deportations of rejected asylum seekers as for the now departed residents of lesbos seeking asylum in greece still for the passage to europe there were a few words from the greek government that suggested this temporary change of
location would be accompanied by a change in fortunes. now into zina phobia inside soccer stadiums enter striker romelu lukaku has called on football authorities to do more to combat racism the cock who was subjected to monkey chants on sunday before taking a penalty against. their italian league match now interwoven that game 21 other soccer players have sent messages of support to luke who. shot own son shows says the racism quote just has to stop. racist taunting of a black footballer in the capital colliery unmistakable and familiar was the chorus of monkey noises echoed around the ground as in just. a penalty for his side on sunday night in the back in april moyes a key received
a similar treatment at the hands of the same spectators i tell you in football as problem with racism is a persistent long time of the. icons comments on this episode because i didn't hear the chants and many other situations i believe that in italy we must improve a lot and be more educated and respectful he was a royal used in italy just a month ago off to his big money transfer from manchester united it was a misstatement on instagram he said it's 2019 instead of going forward we're going backwards he called for professional footballers to unite in the cause of anti-racism. in an e-mail to d w the italian league syria condemned the abuse of lukaku but failed to answer whether or not they intend to take any measures it gets the club or issue any penalty as a result. calorie themselves say they intend to identify and ban the fans

a tumble with you. here. not the way opera lovers usually enjoy their favorite pastime. but for one night stands to savor the music in a setting quite different from a grand opera house. but i was listening to him on the a i don't normally follow the opera so closely but to see don giovanni down this way from a bath tub with a nice view of the prague castle it's something incredible and it's especially on the. security check singers performed best loved arias from the mozart classic which premiered in prague back in 77 years because on every movie because. it's a procedure to do it that when the old guys that i asked me to be part of this event it was a daring step for me as of a minute 30000 you're trying something very nontraditional novia but i like new
challenges. so the wish to move bill becomes even listen to kill even though of course people in the theater are also in the mood to listen to a nice opera but it's different here with the atmosphere of the view the wind and the bathtub all make it a bit different if they know that some little yeah i do according to promoters is just about culture in new and innovative ways as the best way to preserve it for new generations. well berlin zoo giant panda maine maine has given birth to twins now that's a 1st for the mother and the zoo and it's a major breakthrough for the zoo's breeding program miming and the cubs we understand are said to be doing just fine tonight. they are no bigger than the size of your hand but they are over 80 the new stars of the berlin suit after years of trying to pretend the cups without success mother is now taking care of not just
one but 2 new borns even though the moment her babies are still be shielded from the public visitors at the berlin zoo i'm more than thrilled. i want to see them but i was assuming i will get to see them quite yet but so so exciting especially for the kids that are running around and being able to see these animals that you would only see on television had their eyes actually be able to see them is such a wonderful thing. i think i think that in time as a born it's you know it's fantastic isn't it you know so the programs and the populace and all the rest. is good for the zoo as well draws people and. i am an animal lover so of course i'm just thrilled it's just a shame that we can't see them today they're probably too small. and like his young family members. churching is already out in trying the son and his daily
portion of. he's done his job because the pandas the mother praises the offspring the management as happy to see her fulfilling her mother leave for the 1st time. for me it was important meaning immediately did the right thing instinctively she got into a good routine of behavior from the very beginning and that's just a great thing that's what i'm going to put on because. pandas are notoriously difficult to breed as females are only fertile 3 days a year that's why artificial insemination was used to compliment papa davy personal efforts mom and dad arrived in germany 2 years ago on loan from china and they are due to return there in 13 keys just like the cubs who will only stay in berlin for up to 4 years whether they will ever be released into the wild is unclear. so many visitors here in the balance to the news about the new bump on the cops on it so highlight it but animal rights activists criticize that there are only of economic
and political interest many of the pandas bred in zoos well wide and of released into the wild and if they are they die there shortly after. they say true animal wildlife conservation next differently. the zoo is convinced that their habitant office everything from successful breeding which helps guarantee the species survival in the future. and you're watching the news after a short break i'll be back to take you through the day stick around for that.
losing sense to check it out. i'm not thinking at the gym well i guess sometimes i am but i said nothing when the research on thinks deep into the german culture of looking at the stereotype question but if you think you see the country that i'm playing. here you don't see me taking his grandmother there. it's all about a new i'm rachel join me from the german from the w. post you know that 77 percent clapping are younger than 60 odd. that's me and meet. and you know what time of voices i watch on the 77 percent talk about the issues.
from politics to flash from housing boom boom town this is where. welcome to the 77 percent. this weekend v.w. . in the u.k. parliament and the prime minister in an unprecedented standoff over breaks it and it may be the voters who will have to jumpstart the system to work again and here in germany voters of flocking to the fringes into state elections yesterday the far right parties all support skyrocket tonight in europe the politics of paralysis and the politics of the extremes i'm bored come from berlin this is the day.
