now close to reaching 100000000 confirmed infections across the globe 13 months into the pandemic. there are fears that a health crisis is unfolding at a military barracks filled with hundreds of asylum seekers in the u.k. more than a quarter of residents have tested positive for the coronavirus many say it's impossible to maintain social distancing and conditions are poor join a whole travel to the site in kent to speak to some of those inside. they've survived oppression poverty and war but for many the worst part of escaping has been arriving in great britain what is life like in this. widely back to last week when how did you have got all of this 130 yes vote was up to everybody everybody this is not a lot of a little. bit 19 is the latest hardship they face
12:05 am
a recent outbreak has infected more than a quarter of the $400.00 asylum seekers housed at this former military barracks behind the curtain a man who has tested positive this is what passes for isolation and social distancing. in a statement the government blamed residents themselves for failing to take proper precautions in response they addressed an open letter to all british citizens when we are becoming more and more mentally vulnerable and physically ill due to the coded outbreak ministers are intentionally ignoring us and trying their best to cover up the disaster in this army camp. and i spoke to the man who wrote the letter signed by 200 of his fellow residents he wanted to remain anonymous. i want to. go to the.
12:06 am
french for you we want to. oh like many who've been here at napier barracks for months denied access to legal assistance and with no idea how long their claims for asylum might take a combination is derelict there's little access to medical or mental health care one nurse for 400 people there been suicide attempts and hunger strikes in protest at the way they're being treated and it's alleged that staff from the private company appointed by the government to manage this and other facilities like it over want the refugees that if they speak out in any way they'll risk jeopardizing their asylum claims they've got 4 principles of schools aerospace engineers barbers. internationally recognised chefs and athletes and chip chip chip find yourself somewhere like this surrounded by barbed wire fencing
12:07 am
when you think this this is the country that you are going to to make your life and contribute to society but this society is putting you in a camp like this and leaving you there any unveil with no answer to your asylum claim they came hoping for something better they can't have imagined this i don't know how al-jazeera can't. meanwhile protesters of throwing stones at police in the dutch city of rotterdam as the country braces for a 2nd night of violence demonstrations against coronavirus restrictions around $250.00 people were arrested in several towns and cities on sunday the government brought in the strictest measures so far this past weekend imposing a curfew and limiting people to visiting one household per day steadfast and joins us live now from rotterdam i mean i guess that. said like that it they don't seem like certainly the strictest measures that have been brought in in european
12:08 am
countries over the coronavirus so why are we seeing these demonstrations now. well that's a very good question here and the south of herat to them and then it looks like a complete battlefield here shops have been looted to the windows have been smashed bricks everywhere have been throwing bricks at the police police is here in full force helicopter flying over this a lot of young people on the street it's curfew now so since friday the madeline's has this very strict measure of a curfew from 9 pm but still a lot 1 of people are on the streets of police of just driving around not knowing where to start to arrest people and this is not the only city we have around 10 cities in the netherlands at the moment where these riots are taking place lots of arrests have been made and this is the most serious violence that we've seen in the netherlands in the long time and why is this happening that's a very good question we had these protests against the. 4 months already kind of
12:09 am
small but very peaceful and most of the time but now this seems to be more like friend than is a really good an ism people who got frustrated they really angry at the police they say our freedoms are being taken away but there hasn't been much taken away to actually because this lockdown that was in place since march was very very lenient there was a lot of criticism on the government that they didn't take the right match just to prevent the virus from spreading we did it has spread really tremendously many people have died thousands have died here in the netherlands and the infections are still very high so there's a lot of fear that the infections will get worse again with the british ferry and coming to the netherlands as well that's why the government decided to have to restrict curfew but that didn't go down while so these are the people really revolting against this basically and how are police or the authorities thinking no
12:10 am
of dealing with it if it does continue and it has to be said that it seems that the 2nd night isn't quite as violent as the 1st. well there's a there's quite some violence tonight as well as far as we understand but maybe not as much as on on sunday night the prime minister was i asked if if he's planning to ask the army to come in but he said that there's no reason for that the police is still handling the situation but what i've seen myself here in rotterdam it's very difficult because the police is very much understaffed and there's so many people on the street a lot so for young people of course they may not have been doing much during this whole open that make many of them also probably economically suffering us well but there's a whole city full of vandalism and hooliganism as well and that we are seeing here in d.c. these cities so how do government is going to respond the question was also are we
12:11 am
going to lift the curfew down by the prime ministers have no we're not going to lift the curfew because we really need this curfew to to make sure that these infections go down steadfast and with the latest from russia thank you. 2 reports out today reveal more about the economic cost of the coronavirus pandemic and just how on equal its impact has been the international labor organization says an unprecedented $255000000.00 full time jobs were lost last year with 114000000 more workers either unemployed or left with working hours slashed young people and women have been particularly hard hit the 8.4 percent job losses for young adults is more than double the adult rate while the 5 percent of women who lost their jobs is higher than for men some of the lowest paid sectors were also hit hard with one in 5 accommodation and food services jobs lost at the other end
12:12 am
of the scale oxfam says the combined wealth of 10 of the world's richest men surged by $54000000000.00 during the pandemic while the wealth of the world's billionaires increased by nearly 4 trillion dollars in 2022 almost 12 trillion equivalent to what g 20 governments have spent in response to the pandemic was shanghai only as from the international labor organization he says employment numbers should improve in the 2nd half of 2021. our actual analysis here too reflecting the latest development particularly in europe and the united states and relating to the 2nd wave and also the victory indeed some good news on the a vaccination front we actually expect that the 1st half will it is here is mr india a little advanced countries in europe and the u.s. continues to be very difficult to so we expect quite
12:13 am
a significant to live up to working our losses priss to the 2nd half of the 1st half we're so we could agree on the horizon you know our view will be the 2nd half of the year. or financial inequality isn't the only problem that's becoming apparent as more countries move ahead with their vaccination programs many poor nations of barely started and they're being squeezed out of the race the by doses process chorizo is a policy adviser for the doctors without borders access campaign she joins us via skype from london madame thank you for joining us here on al-jazeera so there had been promises a in the past when the vaccines were 1st announced that it would have been divided well more or less equally or at least vaguely fairly what's going on now. good evening yeah i know exactly so what we thing now is very much that the distribution of vaccines is definitely not equitable or equal around the world so ted ross the
12:14 am
head of the world health organization just this week warned that 39000000 doses of coronavirus vaccines have administered been administered around the world but only 25 of those have actually been administered in only one of the lowest income countries around the world so we're seeing vastly unequal distribution of these vaccines around the world we obviously have to prioritize boxing box and the most at risk people including frontline health care workers wherever that around the world not just in rich countries because this is a moral obligation but it's also essential if we're going to tackle this pandemic effectively and can i just sort of double check a figure that you've come out with because it is startling you say $39.00 you know the and those have been handing out and then you say 25 have been given to the poorest country you mean 25 doses not obviously 25000000 just 25 to the poorest country that's correct yeah 25 i mean i guess if we want to be a bit pragmatic it's perhaps not surprising that coronaviruses hit every country
12:15 am
every color me hard including the richest countries in the world how do you think countries of the un w.h.o. can go about trying to make it a bit more equitable. yeah you know exactly i mean everyone obviously this pandemic is unprecedented we're seeing situation where everyone in the world wants access to these vaccines exactly the same time what we need to make sure of is that low risk people in high income countries do not get the vaccine before high risk people in low income countries this is really important to ensure that we actually tackle this pandemic for all of us and also longer term in the medium to long term what we need to do is ensure that we are maximizing available global supply so it shouldn't be a case of you know what you know one person giving it in a high income country not being vaccinated so that someone in a low income country can be vaccinated overall we need to maximize available global supply so that we can all have access wherever we live everywhere to do this we
12:16 am
need to essentially share dates and knowledge and the rest of the vaccine recipes and really globally so that all qualified manufacturers around the world can produce these products maximizing available to local supply so that we can all have access at this so you're saying that the companies so astra zeneca pfizer were there and i should share effectively their science their discoveries yeah exactly we need to open up intellectual property that includes peyton's so open up intellectual property the knowledge that they and also the know how of how to produce these products with all manufactures around the world who can produce these products. it's no use relying on one company one company can never produce enough vaccines for the entire world one or 2 companies are already seeing you know even today after seneca said they can't produce what they committed to the e.u. in terms of their supply projections what they promised so this is what happens
12:17 am
when we rely on one company they cannot produce what the what the world needs and so we have to open that up so that we have multiple supply chains for access to him to maximize access globally for all countries i mean i suppose you know in the west that most of the countries are using their own astra zeneca pfizer buy on take but of course china has its vaccine russia has one as well do you think that may also be part of the answer. yeah exactly we need you know all safe and effective vaccines are pretty safe and effective with sharing the clinical trial data transparently with the world getting you know these peer review public a peer reviewed publications so that we can see the safety and efficacy of these vaccines and then obviously once prove safe and effective we need to maximise supplies of these products to ensure we can really ramp up that production ensure we've all got access what we're seeing at the moment is that that is not happening and that the exclusive rights to these vaccines which by the way of very much
12:18 am
funded by the public you know there's been huge amounts of public investment in these products of the 6 front runner vaccine candidate has that been over $10000000000.00 of public funding going into them so what we're saying now is that you know instead of these pharmaceutical companies getting exclusive rights for these products this knowledge should be shared with the world because you know the public have already paid for these products so they should all belong they should belong to his all. scores policy adviser for the doctors without borders access campaign i'm sure we will be discussing this topic at length several times before this pandemic is over for the moment thank you thanks a lot. more to come on the al-jazeera news hour of vietnam's communist party gathers to elect new leaders behind closed the door as and with that criticism back on. the $1000000000.00 palace in the black sea that's made russia's president issue a rare public denial and then sports and team but the same story for n.f.l.
12:19 am
superstar tom brady and he's here with that story and we're. now in just a few hours donald trump's historic 2nd impeachment trial moves a step closer as the charges are sent from the house of representatives to the senate democrat impeachment managers will proceed with the articles of impeachment through the capital's national statuary hall were rioters paraded during the assault earlier this month and normally a trial would start immediately but senate leaders have agreed to a 2 week delay allowing the biden administration to install a cabinet and start governing 17 republicans would need to vote with the democrats to find trump guilty a year ago in the 1st the trial just one republican voted to convict trump over his the lings with ukraine and as he left office the stakes are different if
12:20 am
he's found guilty this time lawmakers could block him from ever running for office again with just a simple majority my camera takes a look at how we got here. manages to walk articles of impeachment through the corridors of the capitol to the senate this was a little over a year ago but for the 1st time in american history this ritual is to be repeated against the same man. this marked the beginning of the chain of events that led to impeachment. joe biden declares victory in the november election but his opponent donald trump refused to acknowledge it and declined to concede if you count the legal votes i easily win instead a sitting president mounted a virulent campaign against the result deeming the process fraudulent and
12:21 am
contesting it in dozens of courts all in vain the supreme court including 3 off trump's picks simply ignored repeated requests to take up any of the cases and an increasingly frustrated president focused in on preventing the vote being certified in congress. pressing his vice president to abandon his constitutional duty and prevent certification once again in vain let's get back to work in a series of tweets he urged his supporters to come to the capitol to protest it will be wild he promised and when they arrived the article of impeachment alleges that then president incited them to riot now it is up to congress to confront this egregious assault on our democracy and after this we're going to walk down and i'll be there with you we're going to war. because you'll never take back to our
12:22 am
country with weakness you have to show strength and you have to be strong be seen so it's alleged by a majority in the house. was a direct consequence of trump's words and actions in contesting the democratic vote as if it's not enough that he sent an angry mob down the mall to invade the capitol didn't try to stop it and a police officer was killed i don't really know what else you need to know some senate republicans say they've already made up their minds not to impeach the 1st chance i get to vote to end this trial i'll do it because i think it's really bad for america others are keeping open minds it's your article of impeachment that were sent over by the house suggests impeachable conduct but we have not yet heard either from the prosecution or for that from the defense in the last trial then president trump was confident of the outcome is confidence in the decision not to
12:23 am
republican controlled senate was not misplaced only one republican registered to vote alongside the democrats. but just over a year later the dynamics have changed and democrats have a slim majority in a senate that will act as jury healing and unity will only come if there is truth and accountability and that is what this trial will provide and if a minimum of 17 republicans vote to convict these could be the last if the pictures of donald trump holding any form of public office mike hanna al-jazeera washington or let's go to heidi gilles castor who joins us from capitol hill heidi do you think that there are going to be 17 republicans that effectively join the democrats and go for it. barbara in recent days it seems that
12:24 am
more republicans are leaning against the idea of conviction their main arguments falling under 2 categories one that this impeachment trial they say is unconstitutional because trump will be the 1st former u.s. president to be put through a trial and that has no president their 2nd argument being that this is a divisive trial for the country but as you heard from the democratic leader chuck schumer democrats believe that this will put an end to the division that accountability must be the 1st step toward unity and we will see the 1st official product proceedings of this trial get underway in just about 3 hours time when those impeachment managers will transmit the article of impeachment to the senate will hear that charge of inciting insurrection read aloud then tomorrow you will see these 100 u.s. senators sworn in as the jurors then you'll have 2 weeks of silence as far as this trial goes that's because of
12:25 am
a deal worked out to get president former president trump more time to prepare his legal team and to give the senate and democrats more time to get biden's confirmations and covert package under consideration and then as far as the trial itself with the arguments we expect those to begin the week of february 8th still a lot on no though as far as what it will entail whether that includes witnesses and how long it may go barbara what is your house to with the latest from capitol hill heidi for the moment thank you. well let's speak now to clear finkelstein who heads the center for ethics and rule of law at the university of pennsylvania kerry law school she joins us from philadelphia madame thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera with us to start let's start with one of the points that our correspondent was putting there that some republicans say that this trial would be unconstitutional because trump is no longer in office what do you make of that argument. well in fact there's no reason to suppose that that's the case there is
12:26 am
some precedent a late 1900 century case in which the secretary of war belknap had tendered his resignation right as he was at the point of being impeached and the house went ahead and held them pietschmann. voted articles of impeachment on him anyway he was then later acquitted in the senate but also there's no structural reason to suppose that that's the case and in particular there are consequences to being committed to once impeached that are long lasting namely that the senate could then take vote by a majority of senators to bar donald trump ever from holding office again and so from a constitutional structure and from our history there is no reason to suppose that he cannot now be tried and convicted on the article of impeachment that was voted while he was still president of
12:27 am
a guess even for people who are into that knowledgeable about either history or constitutional structure this is obviously an incredibly emotive issue in the united states from both sides of the trump divide that if you will do you think accountability is necessary in this case. yes that's really critical we have never had a president in office before who was willing to go to the lengths that donald trump has been got 1 willing to go to in order to remain in office and if we allow sitting presidents to commit crimes and to incite others to commit crimes in order to remain in office and thereby weaken our democracy the next time around we could have a president who is successful at doing that and that's really the beginning of despotism so it's really essential that when presidents commit crimes while in office or engage in actions that are impeachable and that damage democratic
12:28 am
governance that there is accountability for it it would also have an impact on other things that are going on the responsibility of others who engaged with this such as other senators who supported him some of whom are up before the senate ethics board right now as well as the supporters who broke into the capitol whose culpability may impart depend on how the actions of donald trump are understood yeah and some of those people are apparently claiming that they stormed capitol hill because they were sort of encouraged to so it was suggested by the presence will be interesting to see as those link up so when it comes to the immediate hours how do you see events unfolding especially bearing in mind that there's a new administration in that needs congress to get on with quite quite a lot of work anyway. well that's right and and impeachment is not like any other
12:29 am
trial that we have in our system certainly not like any trial that takes place in a court of law because the senators themselves have to decide on the rules for impeachment and then they serve as judges jury and witnesses and in fact senator leahy we've just learned will be presiding over the trial instead of a chief justice roberts which would be required in the case of a sitting president therefore the senate is going to be extremely busy trying to figure out exactly what the rules are for running this trial will there be witnesses which would extend the trial considerably will evidence be presented or will the senators just use their own eyes and ears as evidence given that they were witness to the events that occurred but the biden administration has a lot of other things that they want to get to and so there's going to have to be a kind of divided attention now the senate has said they're perfectly capable of doing that and i believe that to be the case while i believe it's necessary for the
12:30 am
impeachment trial to go ahead it will be a challenge 'd for the biden ministration to keep congress focused on the kinds of reforms and legislation it wants to see move forward claire finkelstein head of the center for ethics and who'll of law at the university of pennsylvania law school madam thank you thank you very much. let's go to uganda now security forces are still surrounding the home of the country's most powerful opposition leader hours after a court ordered them to leave the high court directed the police and the military to leave bobby wines residence he's been under house arrest since uganda's presidential election on the 14th of january president here what he was 70 was the clear the winner with 58 percent of the vote but the opposition has accused the government of rigging the results unfortunately 6 hours later now the
12:31 am
military and police are still surrounding our home and indeed we are still looking our gates and are not allowing anybody move out or anybody who can be journalists have been blocked from accessing us our party officers and other friends and even funny have been blocked from coming to us is us it is clear that you know mr binnie is continuously using the military and the police but his own man to oprah's his audience and to some all our human rights will continue to call upon the wife beaters to hold you know missouri to our count to calling to order. that our rights are respected because we are nonviolent we don't you doing to use in violence but we must stand for what is more wrong what is right and what is just. you watching al-jazeera life from london still ahead. in sports will hear about the n.f.l.
12:32 am
franchise setting their sights on success in the english premier league. well it's no good in london a fairly rare event of any significance no 5 instead of a much of england as it's done in much of the european plane in the last week or so constantly cold now but the significant heavy snow is really bunched up against the face of the western rushers and moving slowly northwards and getting caught in the flow so you've got places like poland better roost on the baltic states with significant persistence know the same is going to happen in bel garia and some parts of northern greece and there's more snow to come from the north the british isles otherwise mostly it's a sunny picture or entirely mid-level temps in the low single figures by day now
12:33 am
the earliest represents that persistence with wind chills quite a cold wind changing direction until thursday when it dies out and it gets really cold by that time now this is wednesday and the streak of more snow here the bottom end of it is the significant weather developing in the eastern med changing things for places like turkey and greece the forecast is stamboul down to single figures as snow comes in but it does warm up come friday so things will change eventually but for the next 2 days the north of africa will also be affected by what's happening in the central med clearly is going to be tunisia and libya. for. the 1st time glimpse of the challenges faced by journalists in the age of donald trump we are fighting the fake tears fake phony the enemy of the people through the eyes of a federal white house correspondent what do you base your maximally sales are down
12:34 am
the press is not after truck after the fact we're not the enemy of the people we are the people the usa the current battleground whose truth is it anyway on. the latest news as it breaks the explosion near an a.t.v. a transmission site knocked out mobile phone and internet service for miles with details coverage many have told us that they have voted to end up voting for either say they are worried about the security situation in parts of the country from around the world time as late as a dependent on the success of its that seems to prove it's also national in that it has suffered since the beginning right.
12:35 am
welcome back here's a reminder of the top stories on al-jazeera the european union has accused the pharmaceutical giant astra zeneca of failing to deliver a coronavirus vaccines by providing funds to ramp up production meanwhile modernity has announced that its vaccine appears to work against more infectious variants found in the u.k. and south africa democrats from the u.s. house of representatives are preparing to deliver a donald trump's impeachment charge to the senate the former president is being prosecuted in congress for allegedly inciting the rise of the u.s. capitol on the 6th of january which left 5 people dead and uganda's high court has ordered security forces to free the country's most powerful opposition leader ruling that his the tension at home is unlawful but bobby wine says this hole is still surrounded by military troops. ethiopia's human rights commission
12:36 am
says children as young as 11 are being detained in the western belive region along with dozens of ethnic to graham's the government has launched a crackdown across the country months after a devastating conflict that's believed to have killed thousands and centrifuges flee to sudan the u.n. is also warning of growing reports of sexual violence integrate government forces seized control of the regional capital make l.a. in late november ending weeks of fighting with local forces the un says there are reports of women being forced by the military to have sex in exchange for basic commodities and other disturbing acts of sexual violence well earlier i spoke to mark local could the undersecretary general for humanitarian affairs of the united nations he joined us from new york. well it's an extremely alarming situation as you say the fighting. with this operation the government describes
12:37 am
a normal force in early november and while the government of call some place is back under their control as lawless ways of t. gray with many many people. living there which a basic could be still not accessible certainly to agencies and hundreds of thousands more about an hour access to food or electricity all telecommunications or whatever else services for a long time now so we're very very worried about the situation. there have been many worrying reports coming out of the area of rapes of killing also of killing livestock and burning crops i mean what do you make of the reports that you've been hearing and do you think that potentially could amount to war crimes. well i have been multiple allegations of atrocities of many different sorts actually killings and rapes and. sexual crimes against women and teenage girls
12:38 am
it is very alone but the wind a situation is just as a law main risk of acute malnutrition style vacation people dying because they don't have access to basic health services that is the appearance of cholera and all the diseases we don't need because there's no need more to roll immunization campaigns if large numbers of people have run away from that because that afraid of the men with the guns and camped out in some field or some months a place with no shelter role and food or supplies it's a very boring situation we've been able to get a little bit. if you can saddam's and trucks in here and then we need much better access and we would appreciate it if the government would provide essentially blanket access to. you know a regular the u.n. the red cross about is and then if we can negotiate the same thing with the people who are in control of the government on to control them some people are trying to
12:39 am
exert pressure on the government the e.u. for example has suspended more than $100000000.00 over budget supports until agencies are given access to te grey do you think that that is the right approach and if not what steps do you think should be taken by parts of the international community to try to solve the situation. i think 2 things need to happen the 1st is access which we've just talked to bound the 2nd is there is a need for a some kind of reconciliation process between the government and all the communities in and that's what's needed to. happen in order to bring every situation under control and i think ultimately what's needed is cooperation and agreement to move in that direction but it is the case that goes that many countries have been generous providers of assistance to ethiopia many years not least the. the u.k.
12:40 am
and they us and i do understand why those countries there and why they would lie they is here in our thirty's to take different measures as a means of providing confidence that the forms of cooperation can safely continue do you worry that this could escalate into a regional conflict because we're seeing hundreds of thousands of refugees heading to the sudan there is of course an issue potentially you know with neighbors to the east do you worry about that i'm extremely worried about that but i haven't all the worry is well we is the ethiopia has multiple streams country multiple ethnic groups there are the parts of the country where that trashes of being a caring and growing so this is a situation which has the potential to affect the whole of ethiopia as well as the wider neighborhood ethiopia has been a boat work of stability it's been an amazing story of development progress and for
12:41 am
the last 30 years and news tragic to say all that now being put at risk which is why the soon people can get around the table and find a negotiated way forward the best for everybody to cry and the rest of us around the wider region. then you u.s. special climate envoy says his country is back to take a leading role in fighting climate change john kerry was one of the world leaders addressing a summit in the netherlands on how to adapt to a warming planet while previous summits a focused on the causes of the issue this is the 1st on coping with the effects new u.s. president joe biden last week agreed to return to the 2015 paris climate accord after donald trump had pulled out we have a president now god who leads tells the truth and you see used by this issue and president biden knows that we have to mobilize an unprecedented way to meet a challenge that is fast exhilarating so we're proud to be back we come back i want

decisions are concerned so there is a worry at the same time i think chelsea have looked at his work on the pitch and decided that that risk if you will is worth taking because his teams tend to play some really good football these very very bones approach and very attacking and success usually follow so bit of a risk i think as far as the peace in the wider political landscape much as he is concerned but definitely i think an improvement as far as bringing out a team that will be collectively much more cohesive and tactically sophisticated now n.f.l. franchise the san francisco 49 ers have increased their stake in premier league team leeds united to the 49 is now in more than a 3rd of the club those prices back into the english top flight this season leeds are 12th in the league at the moment but the american bankers have their sights set considerably higher you want to when you want to be competitive you want to show
12:55 am
you belong you want to compete for the highest level trophies and championships and for us it's 1st assuring we pull our backs this competing in your open and and eventually as competing in champions league that's the goal. now a new team but the same story for n.f.l. superstar tom brady the 43 year old will be playing in his 10th super bowl this time with the tampa bay buccaneers after 2 decades with the patriots and now in his 1st season with samples of what about the bucs to a $3126.00 winner of the green bay packers in the n.f.c. championship game then outside on reigning champions the council city chiefs with super bowl $55.00 set to be played at tampa's home stadium. you know it's taken a lot of different people over the course of the season off and stephen special teams to come through and you know that's why we're still playing it will be 2 teams are playing we're going to be one of them and again just an incredible journey for all of us i'm just proud to be a part of it but we've been talking to us sports broadcaster michael calls and
12:56 am
about the latest chapter in brady's age defying career. i think it's absolutely huge that there aren't many quarterbacks the n.f.l. who have even had successful seasons at that age and to join a new team admittedly a pretty good team that was just lacking in one or 2 things including a quarterback who wouldn't turn the ball over and then them to the super bowl it is an amazing feat and when you look back at brady's time with the patriots and and how many super bowls and how many conference championships games he's been to it's something that's really unmatched in team sports in the us i think what he had in bill belichick his coach what was a kind of perfect symmetry and he was able to adjust his game to whatever game plan the patriots were using in a given week which often changed dramatically unlike most teams in the n.f.l. and year by year so in some years they were a running team when they had randy moss they were
12:57 am
a deep passing team apt to that they were short passing team and brady adjusted brilliantly i don't think there are many quarterbacks who read the game as well as he does which is a huge part of playing the position as much if not more so than having the really strong arm that a lot of quarterbacks do and it took ian bruce ariens his new head coach a little while to adjust to each other but i think what we've seen in the 2nd half of the season and in the playoffs is that brady and areas are pretty much on the same page and south africa getting ready to fly their 1st test match in pakistan in more than 13 years the series gets underway in karachi on shay's day team stuff is it in pakistan following a deadly ghana cycle the sri lanka side in lahore in 2009 international cricket has slowly been returning to see pakistan over the last 2 days ok that is a force looking for now let's get back to of opera in london. and they thank you
