"A very brief statement. She said all I'm asking for now is Justice as the court sees fit, but her family her mother father and sister gave a very intimate look into how the family and how Andrea has been doing since this attack. Her father says that they are living and breathing her discomfort every day and her mother questioned whether Bill Cosby really ever stopped to consider that pain. He has caused the family. Now, the judge has said that he will sentence Bill Cosby Tuesday morning. He has said that the defense and prosecution have agreed that they will seek a maximum sentence of ten years in prison. The judge will actually also decide on whether to designate Bill Cosby as of sexually violent predator that would require him to check in with police quarterly and to go through mandatory. Monthly counseling sessions. And what was interesting was a forensic psychiatrist said that she thought Bill Cosby was likely to re-offend if given the chance now this case, of course, is not just significant for Andrea Constand. But for the more than sixty other women who have accused Bill Cosby some of them were in court. They were there to support Andrea Constand. But also they said that this is a moment that they too have been waiting for some of them for decades. This is of course, a stunning fall for a man who was once regarded as America's dad a man who was a trailblazer for so many in Hollywood. And now the nation will wait to see what his sentences, of course, this is a significant moment as well for the metoo movement because he is the first high profile figure to face sentencing and conviction for sexual assault.

They've kept it under wraps until now that's divers working along. With the Portuguese navy and archaeologists from the city of Kaskai, which is just near Lisbon in the mouth of the river Tegas. Discovered what they quickly realized was a very old shipwreck and by virtue of some of the things they found there, including significant quantities of pepper corns. Several bronze cannons engraved with the Portuguese Royal coats of arms also ceramics, which they could see would have come from the far east. It was then known East Asia possibly China. They realized that this was almost certainly the remains of a ship that was at least four hundred years old from the time when Portugal had trade in spices and other goodies, which were very rare and very much sought after in Europe at the time with India and points east and this has been dubbed the discovery of the decade for Portugal. Why is it so significant actually discovery of this century and potentially the most important ever? It is still very early days. The archaeologists that have been working on this project say that they have an awful lot to do. So we be for many months probably that they'll be able to tell what really they do have. I mean, one of the things for example, that they said they found him, which we saw pictures of was quite significantly large pieces of wood that looked as though they came from the Holland indeed, they said a passer keel of the ship. So that would help them in piecing together the ship as it was built. So that would tell them a lot it might even tell them which ship.
