3:39 am
foremost goal is going to start and showed that they can succeed at this level. this test is going to be real focus from embedding group we are going to meet test matches without scoring hundred so that's something we've spoken about something we really came to improve in address cyclists chris froome says he will not defend his gerrard italia title this year the britain who won his third straight grand tour title with a win at the jiro in may says he'll focus on clinching a record equalling fifth tour de france instead and there will be six matches in the english premier league on a wednesday night with fourth place chelsea at home to southampton huddersfield but host a bottom of the table battle with burnley while the team of the moment manchester united under caretaker manager ole gunnar sol shire travel to newcastle and meanwhile liverpool will be in action and high profile top of the table clash with manchester city on thursday jurgen klopp side leads the standings currently and could go ten points clear of city if they win. it's the third of january
3:40 am
so really it's an it's a very very very important game for both teams obviously and i would use it as motivation for the other team if you are that these are these kind of six point games it's like it is to play against each other you can go it pretty much in all directions that's how it is and it's a motivation for them one hundred percent so they will be ready and we have to make sure that we already that's all i can figure out imagine so what happened in the pies is going to happen in the future so live in time when we want a lot of games and that doesn't of the means that it's going to happen in the future have the feeling everybody can beat us but also have the feeling of we can beat everybody. to n.b.a. now or call you leonard had a career high forty five points as he led the toronto raptors to a one twenty two one sixteen went over the utah jazz on tuesday the portland trail

3:42 am
leprechauns do to fires people who start out for the serious section of the stats were against the chicago blackhawks they haven't won in four winter classic appearances plus there was just one victory in five outdoor games but it brought a stock. and a second in the second period. there was but new year's day was going to be the day of the boston bruins recording on the path in the last period. and making it bleak for the black coach brett much shown sealing a four to one in the final seconds. sitting in the scene for another touch of showmanship from the team who are fans of the t.v. show peaky blinders players just like the british gangsters for the post match to
3:43 am
news conference if you want to win those games when you're in the big stage like going oh it's a regular season game but still you know the meaning is different when you're playing from riverside so the six thousand people in and on national t.v. i think these are the experiences we want to go to with a hockey career you can look back it might be that you're part of it and temperatures those moments the buffeting salute from a peak performance given count but zero. and it was white out conditions for the mass start cross-country world cup in germany it really was a nice start but you know ever stand up norway was able to make his way through the fifteen kilometer track and come out on top but only by a hair second place went to russia. that's all your sport for now back to you as well and lank you very much for that now finally this is not too often that the walls of silence come together but that is exactly what's on offer and the latest exhibition of dutch. even if you don't recognize his name it is likely that
3:44 am
you've seen his work and one of the largest collections of it is now on display at the u.s. reports from new york. his name was mauer it's corny this as sure but most people know him simply by his last name he's considered one of the world's most famous graphic artists his work about fantasy mathematical shapes and playing with our perceptions he died in one thousand nine hundred seventy two but the percentage sketches and designs by the dutch born innovator are still considered by the scientific community as remarkable something more than just pencil and paper art as it is works what actually the very modern it's very hard to believe that this is computers prove digital age they're very modern look then and it's also there's that math science engineering part of the brain that intersects here with art so it appeals to such a wide range of people the largest collection of asher's art for the first time on
3:45 am
display in the united states more than two hundred works shown at the industry city complex in brooklyn new york an exhibition that is also an experience. this is an exhibit that very much welcomes the visitor to reflect on as sure as reality altering concepts and exhibit very much for the instagram generation. hash tag escher n.y.c. and it's clear the fun the visitors are having with the interactive part of this exhibit it's not the type of exhibition you're just walking around you're actually experiencing at the putting yourself a little bit into ashes world and getting sort of a glimpse of what his mind how his mind worked but even for the younger generations that didn't know a shared by name his art concepts can be found in popular culture from album covers to advertising. and also featured in the simpsons.

a hindu temple the spike months of protests in the easier it begins two thousand and nineteen dealing with yet another natural disaster after a series of landslides kills at least fifteen people plus. they are not under it in thirty million dollars that's a lot of money you know it's free though not bombing. that felix's criticize for blocking an episode of the comedy show patriot act in saudi arabia after the kingdom complained. thank you for joining us in the next hour president trump will meet congressional leaders from both sides of the of the house for a border security briefing from says u.s. homeland security officials will make a plea for a southern border war with mexico this is the twelfth day of a partial u.s. government shutdown triggered by his demand for five billion dollars in funding
3:50 am
there's a reason why politicians are wealthy people build walls around their houses or their car. president obama recently built a wall around his compound as a reason for and i don't blame. we're in a shutdown because democrats refuse to fund the border security. they try and make it like it's just about the wall and it is about the wall i said over the weekend to a number of people that you know the wheel the wall there are some things that never get old it's never going to change the wall is your number one point of security if we had a wall and we will. well let's get more of this from shepparton see in washington d.c. a what are we expecting or perhaps hoping might come out of this meeting she has. hopes a pretty low bar but what i keep hearing from democratic sources is stunts this is
3:51 am
an attempt by i don't trump to seize that p.r. p.r. initiative in all of this the meeting will be held in the heavily secure situation room in the basement of the white house it's not being billed as negotiations but a briefing on border security by key security officials the head of department of the department of homeland security the head of ice immigration and customs enforcement head of customs and border protection who will and this is all part of that the optics of suggesting there's this enormous emergency at the southern border we should always remember that illegal crossings at the southern border are in fact an all time or historical lows in the united states nonetheless this is a key plank of donald trump's argument that the moment there's an emergency of drugs and rapists and criminals crossing over so it's unlikely to be received terribly well by the democrats nancy pelosi and chuck schumer because they know all the facts they do good part of the government to they get these briefings so the
3:52 am
indications are that nothing necessarily will be resolved in this meeting except for having the opportunity to have this the optics of trying to to explain to the democrats who don't seem to realize that the emergency on the way and so it does look at the partial government shutdown could continue remind us what the impact of that is in the united states. we're back to eight hundred thousand federal workers. although four hundred thousand or so are in fact working without pay they deemed essential three hundred eighty thousand of that really begin to impact the next couple of weeks or so when the next paycheck is due it's not that i mean if that doesn't come through that's when they will really begin to suffer but even beyond that there are plenty of but at the lower income workers who low income communities who are reliant on the federal government for services at the moment there are indications that things are still funded there is
3:53 am
still funding for the moment for a lot of essential services like food stamps and the like but the longer this goes on this gets really really dangerous and really critical for very vulnerable communities not to mention the overflowing trash cans even outside the white house currently or the national zoo or the smithsonian institute the museums and all the support services and also rely on having a federal economy of sorts and i mean what we what we know is though that on thursday the democrats intend to introduce legislation to reopen the government in the house but the senate says they were then pick up those bills for a vote in the senate unless they have assurances from donald trump that he will sign off on them and that's not clear yet so at the moment everything still remains in the shipwreck hansie with the latest from washington following those developments for us thank you.
