uncharted water. it is not a vaccine in which a mutant down version of the virus is injected into the system, allowing the body to create its own immunity. this is a case where, a spike proteins are created within the humans d.n.a., which replicates the corona virus, and trains. the body to recognize it should the corona virus into the body. so this is a totally different technology which has not been dealt with before. and this in itself is going to maybe extend the period, the speed with which these vaccines can be rolled out. well, that is also incredibly difficult because this particular treatment requires 2 injections over a period of 3 weeks. now that is a lot of injections, a lot of the vaccine that needs to be distributed throughout the country. canada's largest cities going back into lockdown on monday after a study spike in cases gyms and cylons are closing in toronto and restaurants

a black man. in south pounder, protests said the violence was a legacy from black slavery. you know, what we saw in porto alegre is the most despair expression of structural racism, institutional racism, and of how much brazil still inherits from the heritage of the slave countries operating the americas. my brother joel who died. he's not just, he's part of the black family excluded from society for 500 years, and we still hear and see these expressions of anger, rage, and racism. the brazilian n.g.a. says about half of brazil's population a block of mixed race, but account for 3 quarters of victims of lethal violence. the percentage of those killed by police is slightly higher alberta, so they are afraid to stand on the eve of brazil's black consciousness day, a public holiday in many states. but instead of celebrating many mourning and using

10:14 am
through also through sicily, into tunisia, and eventually libya, quite a big circulation that on saturday at the same time in the levant. and still, i suspect in cyprus, we got cheri rain to come, but this is the major thing to watch. i think in the next day or so, or further south in monrovia, there are still showers or thunderstorms. and that represents how far around the rain still is. so we've got sierra leone monrovia and back down to was gonna, coastal showers, seeing quite likely. but in banjo, also it says 33, if you come inland a little bit in the gambia, you're nearing 40. nearing a record, frank assessments, if american public opinion is betrayed by social media platforms after november, this would be this. because as if you believe that there horowitz into our democracy, one obvious solution is to read from an informed opinion,

10:22 am

10:25 am
irrefutable evidence of how the seas are rising due to human caused global warming . the satellite, which resembles a large gadget festooned orbiting doghouse, can quantify ocean rise to within a centimeter. the main concept is that as a radar altimeter on board and it, it fires a pulse of the ocean surface and you measure how long it takes that pulse to go out and come back. and from that you can him for the height of the satellite above the ocean surface. and so when you take the height of the satellite and you subtract off that radar measurement of the height of the satellite above the ocean surface, then you have a measurement of the height of the ocean. about one 3rd of the ocean rises due to thermal expansion. water that absorbs heat, expands like mercury in an old fashioned thermometer. the rest is due to the melting of glaciers and ice caps in greenland,
10:26 am
the antarctic and elsewhere. so these 2 elements to get america. be the product of sentiment 6, very relevant. 4 for the society for the intergovernmental panel on climate change has projected that oceans could rise more than 60 centimeters by 2100 endangering millions. if not billions of people who live near the sea or in storm prone areas. scientists working on the sentinel 6 program say it will provide unambiguous data to grab the public and policymakers attention was going up. we can show people the data. and i like to think that, that most people out there can still be informed by looking at, you know, real data. it's not some cloud model that's predicting what's going to happen. it's actually measurements of what's really changing, what's changing,
10:27 am
and why climate is changing because we're putting c o 2 and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. and we need to start moving on to the renewable energy sources and stop burning fossil fuels. cental six's mission will last 5 years, a messenger in outer space bearing a message to humanity that it must change its ways. rob reynolds al-jazeera, the world cup kicks off in qatar in exactly 2 years time football's biggest tournament will make its middle east debut in 2022. but the coronavirus pandemic has affected preparations for both teams and organizers drive gusset off sky reports from doha. this giant 10 structure is al bates, stadium. in arabic, it translates to the house and will be home to 60000 fans for the opening game of the 22 inch to world cup. if the current virus pandemic lifts in time,

a pita testing for all every 3 to 6 days. it's been a very different experience for us from the get go. we, when we got on the flight, we had to obviously weather, thrice mosques, and then straight away we had around our faces a hole in our floor. but we came to the hotel where the staff have been quarantining, who i think 2 weeks already. so everyone here in the bubble has been in the bubble for 2 weeks before us arriving australian club. perth tested out the education city world cup stadium in the 1st group match, and were impressed that stadium probably the best biden, i think we were the 1st ones to use. so, you know, you could have got a better pitch. the chinese, you know, as i said, the pitch, the bench is old, top top 5 to be 8 stadiums are already finished and some have already held matches. but the hard work continues to open,
