welcome back now the european commission says it's fining the search engine giant google one point seven billion dollars for blocking rival online advertising as well but in reports from the. google dot com is the world's most visited web site and that traffic generates hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising revenue every year but this case examine the way google imposed anti competitive contracts on other website companies today's decision is about how google abused its dominance to stop websites using focus other than the at since many websites such as news and travel sites have an embedded search function a little micro firing glass in the top corner very often and they bring up search results but also search adverts now those adverts are placed there by ad brokers such as google's ad sense platform which competes with microsoft and yahoo and
other platforms in the marketplace from two thousand and six google started using its market dominance to insist a third party website searches would exclusively show google adverts that was later changed to a demand that google ads would simply get premium placement there was no reason for google to includes these restrictive close's in their contracts except to keep rivals out of the market. and this is why we concluded that between two thousand and six and two thousand and sixteen google's behavior was illegal and the e.u. and to trust rules google has issued a statement saying we've always agreed that healthy thriving markets are in everyone's interest we've already made a wide range of changes to our products to address the commission's concerns over the next few months who are making further updates to give more visibility to rivals in europe. since twenty seventeen the european commission has fined google three times the penalty so far totaling nine point three billion dollars and there
is global concern as well earlier this month news corp australia urged a government inquiry there to break up what it described as google's unparalleled power but there is no quick fix these things take a long long time and so far the evolution of tech companies behavior happens faster than legislators legislate and that's been the case for at least the last twenty years and i'm sure will be the case for some time the latest one point seven billion dollars fine is barely a dent in the thirty one billion dollar profits of google's parent company alphabet but the cumulative effect is significant and it shows a growing determination to hold big tech companies to account paul brennan al-jazeera london. time for sport now is on the. thank you very much well the seattle mariners have won the first game of the new major league
baseball season tokyo hosting the match it was the oakland athletics an event dominated by a japanese legend of the gang. the. mariners start shuras suzuki was the center of attention at forty five he's the second oldest position player to start an opening day game in american league history i mean guess insanity it is best to steal the headlines hitting a grand slam home run that helped them are in a secure a nine seven when it seems meet again on thursday. you know it's a great honor for for us to come back here with the chiro and understand what he means to the mariners franchise i know what he means to baseball here in japan but he also means a lot to the fans and our entire group organization wide in seattle so we want to send him out here in front of his home crowd in japan the best way we can and you know just trying to give him every chance to tip his hat because he's certainly deserving of it well mike trouts is set to sign
a record breaking contract extension with the los angeles angels the twelve year deal worth four hundred thirty million dollars making it the most lucrative long term contract in baseball history twenty seven year old as it sits on when the american league's most valuable player over. there's a danger in things like that when you when you sign players to long term deals. but you know you really have to know. organization wise before you do something like that that this is where you want to go and i don't think there's any question you know mike trout is worth if anybody is let's put it that way if anybody's words give a twelve year contract to mike trout is that guy. former world number one victoria azarenka has won our opening match at the miami open events had a start delayed by a day because of rain the three time form
a winner is unseated this year was taken to three sets by them like a simple car over. as a rank or face caroline garcia in that round so. basketball star james harden has made more n.b.a. history he's become the first place record a thirty point game against all of the league's twenty nine other teams in a single season the last franchise on his hit list with the atlanta hawks he got the record by scoring thirty one points against them helping his houston rockets team win one twenty one one one zero five. zero he's been breaking records all season in february set a mark of thirty two consecutive thirty point games which is the most since the n.b.a. merged with its league rival in one thousand nine hundred seventy six he's also recorded for fifty point triple doubles which is the most in n.b.a. history he did it with a game winning display against the l.a. lakers in december this season harden is averaging more than thirty five points
a game if he keeps that up we'll have the best regular season scoring average since michael jordan back in the mid nineteen eighties or earlier on we spoke to robert little of black sports online he said despite harden's achievements he's still got a long way to go before he can be considered one of the greatest of all time. james so i mean it is definitely it in b.p. blair he's a player that's like he said breaking a lot of records i think without question most people would say that he's one of the top five players in the n.b.a. right now as far as you know greatest of all our time you know that's a very you know lofty list with a lot of heavy hitters on it and i don't know james houghton has the body of work to say put him up in a top team in order to top it team a lot of time i think you see the potential for him getting to that you know level but what you really see where you're talking about top ten players in the n.b.a.
specifically because all those players have multiple championships and no matter the stats and i think russell westbrook is another example of this no matter what type of legendary stats a record breaking stats they put up be hard for them to break into the top in time unless they start away some championships. well the brooklyn nets of moved a step closer to reaching the n.b.a. playoffs they rallied from twenty eight points down to beat the sacraments are gangs the angela russell scored a career high faulty four points to lead brooklyn to a one twenty three one twenty one win and snap a four game losing streak and that sits seventh in the western conference. or into the final stretch of the n.h.l. regular season with james fighting for a spot in the post season the gloves came off in new york is the islanders martin clash with boston's zidane or chara appearance had won six consecutive meetings
between the teams heading into this game and they kept up the dominance of the islanders boston way by. now women's world footballer of the year martyr has described how discrimination almost derailed her career before it had begun the presenting was one of six recipients of the olympic women in sport trophy at a ceremony in new york an award for those who've helped encourage female participation in sports. prejudice and lack of opportunity hurt me many times along the way it hurts when the boys would not let me play it hurt when adult coaches from opposing teams took me out of championships because i was just a girl her to leave my family at the age of just fourteen to face its three day bus trip with very little money in my pocket and then to live alone in rio de janeiro to play professional football and a problem most cyclists can relate to cause some title hopefuls at mountain biking epic in south africa
a puncture hitting the chances of nina shirts and lost force to who have been leading the overall standings at the world's toughest mountainbike state rice are back at same did eventually get them going again but they slipped down to a fourth place this race finishing up on saturday. ok that is always sport for not more lights or. all right andy thank you very much indeed now unusually wet weather on the west coast of the u.s. has turned some hillsides into a blanket of wild flowers the super bloom of color has attracted crowds to one city in california but it's also caused a headache of sorts out as it was rob reynolds has been. southern california's hillsides have put on their most gorgeous garment a brilliant robe composed of countless golden poppies it's a rare sight in this usually brown and dusty land heavy winter rains brought forth the blossoms in such abundance that the super bloom as it is known is attracting
huge crowds to gaze in all it nature's splendor it's amazing it's like we are in heaven and most people are chained to a desk and they don't get the chance to see anything like this and you can't even get this on your widescreen t.v.'s i don't think you get to see it up front you got to see it you guys you actually have to see it with your own eyes a few days ago so many people flock to walker canyon near the town of lake elsinore that mayor steve monoliths had to temporarily close the area we just didn't have the crowd control necessary to deal with the enormity of this which. we thought twenty thousand people maybe and we got a hundred and so disneyland usually gets forty four thousand on any given day so you can figure that you can do the numbers now things are under control with extra parking and more shuttle buses provided we're asking everyone to be kind of mind the trails don't pick the poppies don't own the poppies the kind of nature of the
california poppy or s shoulder california is the official flower of the golden state much of its original habitat has been lost to development and invasive plants species some people make a pilgrimage to the wild flowers whenever they appear like a curious sato whose late mother brought him when he was his own son lucas's age the poppy is the sign of remembrance so you know looking at poppies is a good way to remember your loved ones who have passed the poppies hay day will be brief a week or two at most in the fourteenth century the persian poet hoffa's said spring and all its flowers now joyously break their vowell of silence it is time for celebration. soon the sun will draw the verdant hills and the poppies will return to the earth as all things mortal must. but for now it is

continue in mozambique to reach people stranded by floods. zimbabwe malawi affected two. relatives of victims react as the u.n. appeal judges increase the jail term of former bosnian serb leader radovan parallage to life in prison. or jail as government when he was called for dialogue but protesters people demands a change. but his prime minister to resign may is defending her request for an extension to the brags that deadline but a sharply criticized the british parliament for failing to back her agreement with the european union but you can either once the e.u. to extend the departure date from the end of next week to june thirtieth european council president donald tusk says that may be possible but only if the u.k. parliament approves mase existing deal but that deal has already been rejected twice by british m.p.'s about three hours ago may made an emotional appeal to the
nation i passionately hope n.p.'s will find a way to back the deal i've negotiated with the e.u. a deal that delivers on the result of the referendum and is the very best deal negotiable and i will continue to work night and day to secure the support of my colleagues the d u p and others for this deal. but i am not prepared to delay breck's it any further than the thirtieth of june john hall has the latest from westminster hall to resume a prepares now to face the e.u. and its leaders in brussels and be issued formally with these old to make to you have your short extension if you want but only if you pass you'll deal first well in one sense that gives to reason may want she wanted another vote on her brakes a deal any circumstances potentially that make that vote more winnable pitting it directly against the much feared no deal breaks it option but the
numbers may yet be against it would be potentially a large number of m.p.'s on the right of her party who don't mind the idea of a no deal breaks and potentially not enough in these in the labor benches and elsewhere to make up that gap as much as to reserve a says in her statement in her address to the nation this evening she is on the side of the public they just wanted over with i agree she said she may yet be far from over because if she loses that folk next week and she doesn't get her short extension the e.u. may indeed force a long extension of britain to avoid no deal and she said again this evening that she as prime minister would not countenance an extension beyond june thirtieth put all that together and you get to the point where if a deal is voted down next week that could in turn be the end of to resuming when your leaders will discuss what next in the brig's of crisis in a summit on thursday mullins leigh has more now from brussels. when sarees m a has
to address the e.u. twenty seven the other members of the european union at the start of their talks on thursday afternoon the one question they're going to be asking her is what happens if your deal fails again for the third time at the start of next week because they're only prepared at the moment to countenance an extension to back seats if a deal passes and there's every likelihood that it wants. that will say to her i'm sure what happens if it fails are you actually prepared at the end of next week for the u.k. to leave the european union with no deal at all despite the fact the u.k. parliament voted against it now twice despite all the economic damage that would pose to the u.k. the republic of ireland the netherlands and other bordering countries to the u.k. despite the fact that it would be mean the reimposition of a hard border. on the island of islands and all the violence that could lead to they're going to say the reason why is that actually what your intention is and they going to have to try to get some sort of straight answer from
a because it's based on that on so that they don't have to consider whether or not to have another emergency summit literally in the two days will direct it supposed to happen and potentially protect alan from a no deal by proposing an even longer extension to reason most prepared to go for that so many unanswered questions for the european point of view at the moment they're trying to get some clarity from sarees in may but at the moment this seems still to be no plan b. for what she proposed proposing to do if she loses her deal for a third time. the number of deaths from will continue to rise with bodies being found in the flood waters the cycling has left a trail of destruction across southern africa in mozambique zimbabwe. one of the hardest hit areas in central mozambique. the roofs of buildings people out from the muddy water that's all that's left of this town dismayed by
floodwater that almost a week ago waged in central mozambique's of the province it's not known how many people made it out safely. on stagnant water across the horizon on an isolated piece of dry land rescue workers drop off desperately needed food hundreds of people queue for what could be their only meal in days. that's a night letourneau was atlético nightmare. as we fly further we see what was once a sports ground now a temporary shelter for hundreds of people who are stranded sit wait and sleep on a back to grandstand a short but uncertain reprieve from floodwaters. then a call comes through to save a critically ill patient this woman is pregnant and needs medical help as quickly
as possible the ten minute flight between flood ravaged boozy and the relative safety of paris city may be her only chance initial concern about how cycle of die would impact central mozambique has been replaced by worry over widespread flooding a growing number of deaths and the displacement of thousands of people this is just one rescue of what aid agencies say could be thousands move from al-jazeera boozy mozambique at least fifty seven people have died in neighboring malawi when earlier we spoke to. southern african regional director for oxfam in malawi is cutting the long with she says the main thing is now disease i have the moment of the floodwaters have gone but it has left so much of destruction in different places so at the moment we are having to deal with people who have lost their houses they have nowhere to go back to we are left with the fields that have been
washed away people should have been the heaviest in their maize this coming may but if they have lost all that and somehow moved into temporary shelter where they have no food water points in most of the villages have been the contaminated and so at the moment people are having to use contaminated water our medical center at the moment is that we might have another wave of a crisis that will come out of water borne diseases so there is a need for immediate to support immediate assistance for the communities that are affected. the former bosnian serb leader radovan carriage will now spend the rest of his life in jail after being recent inspire un court carriage was appealing a twenty sixteen conviction in the genocide and a forty year prison term but the judges said his sentence for the ninety ninety five srebrenica massacre was to light some of your reports from the hague for. the faces of the dead of the celebrity it's
a massacre remembered by their loved ones victims of the genocide perpetrated by bosnian serb leader radovan cottage which it has taken nearly twenty five years for justice to be realized a painful journey often bereft of hope but learn excellently look but the wait has finally come to an end candidates listened intently as the court listed his grounds for appeal and rejected them almost entirely the prosecution's appeal in all other respects sets aside charges to prod and order russian descending the sentence of forty years of imprisonment and imposes just a pride and goes into sending a sentence of life imprisonment. outside the tribunal it was a decision welcomed by all who had gathered there but the suffering is never far away for this is all someone without i am satisfied but i want to ask
which school did he go to to learn how to kill our children our sons our husbands i am satisfied but then again i am not because i no longer have my children. instead itself tears of relief fell for the tribunals alstad would increase cut education sentence. this is one of the last remaining rulings dealing with the brutal breakup of yugoslavia and the sentencing of brother i had a church is also being seen as a crucial test holding to factor leaders to account for crimes committed during conflicts. the case has been one of the most high profile legal battles of the yugoslav wars more than eight thousand muslim men and boys were slaughtered in the strip and it's a massacre it was the worst genocide to have taken place in europe since world war two well the town has become symbolic of the very worst atrocities that took place in the balkans during the war it has also been
a milestone for the legal consequences that followed it took twenty years and let's hope it's not going to take twenty years for syria or for gay men for all of these other places where similar atrocities are being committed and we are some international community have to be more committed to bring justice to defectives way sooner than twenty years god will now spend the rest of his days behind bars his genocidal actions scarred an entire region and they leave behind a legacy of anguish from which many will never recover so yeah al-jazeera the hague algeria's foreign minister says the president will hand over power to a democratically elected successor after weeks of protests demanding he step down. the election of president. will come after a new constitution is approved and the national conference takes place the foreign
minister called for discussions with members of the opposition. ok then and one fee and here was the solution lies in dialogue that the algerian state is fully ready for dialogue moreover it is fully ready to welcome the representative of the opposition and civil society as members a new government that is being formed now and a constructive dialogue is the only way capable of finding successful solutions that meet people's expectations in the state's responsibilities algerian media are reporting that the president's party the national liberation front fully supports the ongoing protests calling for political change parties describing its earlier decision to nominate president bush to think a fourth fifth as a mistake the second biggest party in power is also expressed its support for the protests turned shia. to run the presidential race for a fifth term in his current physical condition is nothing short of lack of common sense on.
