"The BBC World Service. I nNcholas Jackson. And this week story explores the darker side of university life in the United States, sometimes violent and dangerous group. Initiation. Rites known as hazing continued to cause fatalities amongst young people with around two hundred and twenty deaths attributed to hazing why? So many willing to risk so much in order to become a member of a group that's assignment after the news. BBC news with David Harper. A court in Tunisia has sentenced seven jihadists life in prison over gun and grenade attacks at a museum and a beach resort which killed sixty people. Most of them tourists in two thousand fifteen others received lesser sentences while twenty seven were acquitted, but the presumed mastermind of the attacks remains on the run in Thailand's, the political party, which nominated the king's elder sister as its candidate for prime minister says it will go to the monarchs order that she pullout palace says even though Princess airborne rats Mohegan renounced, her official titles years ago, she remained a member of the Royal family, America's career and voice as he's held three days of productive talks in Pyongyang to prepare for the second meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong UN Stephen begun said both sides had some hard work to do before the summit in Hanoi. The Trump administration has ignored a request from congress. To provide. A report identifying who killed the Saudi journalists Jamal kashogi, a White House officials said the president was within his rights to decline to act Pakistani. Police have detained and then released a renowned academic. I'ma ally John after he took place in a protest. It took part in a protest against the death of a prominent human rights activists from the Pushtoon community are man lonely talk to learn these family accused police of deliberately killing him and Baluchistan province last week. The police denied Britain has terminated a controversial contract to provide extra ferry capacity in the event of the UK leaving the European Union without deal ministers have faced mockery since seaborne. Freight was awarded the contract even though it had never run a ferry service. No had any ships officials in northern India say more than thirty people have died after drinking toxic alcohol in separate incidents. Several others have fallen sick in Uttar Pradesh and a trick province. This be crossing bussey was a well organized event. You knew who was going to be doing it. You new windows going to happen. You did not get on the bus see unless you were gonna be hard of it. The people that are the perpetrators all unless you're going to be the victim that's going through. There was no spectators unbe see what an individual's post to do is to at the front of the bus place both of their hands on the top rail of the bus if it's a male. They have no shirt on the girls have their brought, I'm nNcholas Jackson. And this is the pledge on BBC World Service and talking to Pam and Robert champion senior in the hometown of Atlanta in the United States about the tragedy that turned their lives upside down eight years ago when their son Robert was code fifteen members on this side, the fifteen members owners lead thirty people and you go straight down the bus trap to wish the back. People are being used and stopping you have on your back your chest your threat, they're not supposed to hit your face. You may be able to see those bruises. And if you get to Becker the bus, whereas opposed to in West Palm was laying in the middle of floor by himself. I'm sure those students didn't mean to kill him. But they really intend to do harm tilling in twenty eleven Robert champion was a student at Florida am university. He was a drum major in the colleges prestigious marching band the marching one hundred and brutally and violently beaten to death by his fellow members in an initiation. Rite known as crossing bus c even though these ritual was prohibited. It was widely condoned accepted even encouraged and going through it was considered to be an essential part of band vendor. Ship. I think they call it something like tradition. He don't realize his violence, you accept it. As one guy said, this is just what we do is. So ingrained why because it will die unless you it would only get before it would only here before that before if they can't handle being apart. Then they're not accepted. What is so shocking about robots death was that it was not? The hands of strangers the tormentors responsible for the fatal events on bus. See where his friends Eddie always wanted to join a marching band. Oh, absolutely. Robert at the age of five he saw his very first parade. He saw the drum majors. And would he actually told us was that this is what he wanted to do? He called the drum majors gentlemen's simply because they had the hi hat and the coat has details. So from that first exposure to music is what really sparked it in him going. And being who he was the marching band is highly respected because the bane was more important than football team. When people came to the games, they came to see the band, your drum major is pretty much the leader of the band, Robert champion's death came about because of a practice code hazing a series of rituals designed to initiate a person into a group to which they pledge loyalty. These can range from relatively innocent pranks to extreme levels of mental and physical abuse although hazing can occur in all types of groups from sports teams to marching bands. Many of the reported cases on US campuses. Take place in all male for tendencies and all female sororities, the so-called Greek letter organizations since the names of these social groups had taken from the Greek alphabet hazing is an initiation rite that can sometimes go terribly wrong. It's either physical or psychological abuse of power between those who are in a group, and those who want to join a group, in many cases, there's a notion that those who want to join a group have to prove themselves or go through some kind of physical or mental hardship in order to cross that line. Emily point one is executive director of hazing prevention dot org, and national nonprofit organization focused on the prevention of hazing examples of physical hazing are. Usually what you end up seeing. In the news consumption of alcohol or disgusting foods whipping or beating with a paddle branding exposure to the outside elements, for example, b barefoot and stand in snow for a long period of time or be dropped off at a certain location and have to find their way back without any warm, clothing or phone, for example, psychological hazing can include humiliation sexual abuse or not sleep for a number of days as well as exit servitude. Or acquiring new members of the group to perform certain acts for older or more established members when we met in Atlanta. One was keen to stress that hazing isn't just a problem on university campuses. It can start well before students go to college in the US. We see incidents of hazing starting as early as middle school and forty-nine percent of high school students have reported experiencing hazing in groups are closer sports and seventy three percent of college athletes in the US report that they experienced hazing before they went to college because hazing is a clandestine activity official figures for how much of it goes on on campuses are hard to come by. Although there'd been an estimated two hundred and twenty deaths overruled from hazing in the United States since records began as recently as September twenty eighteen another suspected case of death through hazing hit the news in the US Tyler Hillyard twenty year old student at the university of California riverside died during the recruitment process to join the Alpha Phi alpha fraternity the incident is currently under investigation when. We see high profile cases in the media of deaths through hazing, it might give the impression that hazing is actually on the increase is that the case it's hard to say because hazing has not been reported in any official manner. So I'm not sure that hazing is happening more. But clearly the awareness of hazing is increasing. And as a result. A number more cases are coming to light. More deaths are being connected with hazing some people might look at instances of hazing where there hasn't been a death. No one's been injured and say, it's just kids having fun. Why does this matter students die every year on college campuses as a result of hazing, and there are a number of hazing death that never get reported? And even more cases of students who drop out of school or commit suicide or have lifelong psychological damage because of what occurred to them. So, of course, it matters. My name is Hank newer. I'm.

"The BBC World Service right here on WNYC AM, FM, New York. Still to come on the forum more on the North Pole and the Arctic north the impact of climate change on polar regions as ice caps melt. It's changing the habitats of Arctic animals and people, but also creating economic opportunities with some Arctic nations positioning themselves to take new claims to Pola territory. Still with me are three Arctic experts seduce stay with us. We'll be back after the BBC news summary. BBC news with Neil newness. The Venezuelan opposition leader one Guajardo says there have been secret meetings between his allies and the country's military in his attempts to depose President, Nicolas Maduro. The United States is using economic pressure targeting Venezuela's oil revenues and assets. Meanwhile, the authorities in Venezuela have detained five foreign journalists. Covering the crisis three worked for the Spanish news agency FA the British car industry, says uncertainty over Brexit has contributed to an alarming slump in investment. It's eighty percent lower than three years ago. Meanwhile, London-based think-tank has warned that if Britain leaves with known deal in March there will be major negative impacts in eight out of eleven policy areas because the government hasn't prepared new laws. The American midwest is enduring one of the coldest nights in a generation there have been at least. Twelve deaths related to the extreme cold temperatures are forecast to drop below minus forty celsius Facebook posted record quarterly profits in the final quarter of last year nearly six point nine billion dollars. It's total profit was thirty nine percent up on the previous year state media in China's a more than three hundred listed Chinese companies have indicated they report significant annual losses for twenty eighteen growth is at its slowest pace in nearly three decades. News agencies in Moscow, say Russia and the US have failed to make progress in talks on the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. Scientists say they caught an is Asian of the Americas in the sixteenth century killed so many people it contributed to appeared of global cooling, the mass deaths mainly because of disease led to swathes of land being reclaimed by nature pulling in huge amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and cooling the wild. This is the forum from the BBC World Service. I'm Bridget KENDALL. And today, we're exploring the North Pole that point at the very top of the globe and unattainable goal for many of us except that handful of adventurous and scientists who've managed to make the trek to see it for themselves. Still with me our class dots professor of geopolitics at Royal Holloway university of London, Michael Bravo. Senior lecturer at the university of Cambridge head of circum polar history and public policy research at the Scott polar research institute, and Felicity Aston, MB Arctic and an toxic explorer, author and former. Climate scientists. Three singer Tanya talk with song, a Ota tiniest music is intensely political. It's about the lack of respect for women's rights, the planet and for indigenous rights, and she comes from the Inuit community of none of it. Canada's most northerly territory, and it's gateway to the North Pole who owns the North Pole to the north of. None of it is becoming increasingly important across the Arctic the effects of climate change or already visible with consequences, not just for local populations like tiniest community, but the rest of the world as well. Cows from your vantage point as professor of geopolitics you've described the geopolitics of the North Pole regions as being shaped by the nature of the four elements involved rock water sea-ice air. So I thought we'd look at them one by one and I want to start first off with rock now in two thousand and seven Russian scientific research expedition became the first descend down to the seabed under the Asian at the North Pole and plant their country's flag on the ocean floor which caused quite a stir with the other Arctic nations, some even calling it a land grab why was this such a controversy? Why is the seabeds important? Well, it reveals well how particular incident can be interpreted in radically different ways. So it's the Russian flag. It's two thousand and seven, and of course, international opinion, is increasingly becoming a little bit more worrisome about what President Putin has in mind for Russia as a great power. On the other hand, of course, back in Russia it seen as an extraordinary technological achievement. Now when you dig a little more into the incident itself, you realize also there was a serious oceanographic expedition that was trying to provide ever-greater geological knowledge to bolster Russian claims that they enjoyed some kind of rights what we call sovereign rights over the seabed concerned. What are the rules for nations that are trying to claim sovereignty at the poll? Well, when it comes to rock if you will. There's something called the law for see convention, and ultimately article seventy six of this extraordinary convention says that you can extend your sovereign rights as a coastal state if you can demonstrate that your continental shelves. So the underlying geology is attached to your continental or what's called your coastal baseline. Why does Russia want the North Pole? There is this about symbolic ownership. Or is it actually a race to win the rights to resources? It's about two things. It's about Russian history, which is often misunderstood and underestimated one can go back to the sixteenth century. Richard chancellor arriving in the court of Ivan the terrible and together they make a deal. I haven't terrible wants to open up the northeastern trade route between the Pacific and the Atlantic to get access to the Arctic sea, so the geopolitical ambitions of Russia reach back to the sixteenth century. But so does the formation of Russia's self understanding? Russia looks north and it feels north that's critical. The second point, of course, is about resources and resources go hand in hand with nation building and national identity so for Russia access to offshore oil and gas. Access to Siberian minerals are very important for the economic vision of the Soviet Union and of Russian today of President Putin. Now, we've talked about the legal complications around the North Pole. It's very different with the south pole. Isn't it with Antarctica Felicity, say back in the forties and beginning of the nineteen fifties different nations each had claims to sovereignty parts of Antarctica? Or in the case of Russian America, the whole of Antarctica. So they came up with the idea of a treaty that didn't dispute or establish any claim. So effectively it put untarred Tartu Kurna sort of stasis where it belongs to nobody. And yet belongs to everybody at the same time, and along with that the treaty lays out some initial rules about what you can and cannot do in Antarctica. So it said you couldn't carry out nuclear testing there. You couldn't mindful resources. You couldn't have military. Every exercises, and it has its flaws, but it's worked really effectively, but it seems in the Arctic argument to have been ruled out as a template really early on. It's interesting that today's geo political battles that he should be allowed to stake a claim to the North Pole. We're predicted well over one hundred years ago by the famous nineteenth century, French author Joel van in his eighteen ninety satire the purchase of the North Pole where he describes how the North Pole is up for sale and a number of nations gathered to try and buy it representing the English to delegates called measure Donilon and his secretary dean to drink. The North Pole belong to them. It always belonged to them. It was to them as if the Lord had given the mission to the English people to keep up the rotation of the earth around its axis, and as if it was their duty to prevent it passing into strange hands. It is necessary to observe here that France did not consider it necessary to send a delegate, but an engineer of France was present at the sale just for the fun of it. Reading from Joel vans. Taxed Sondhi SU SU published in English in eighteen ninety s both the purchase of the North Pole. Topsy turvy microwaves extraordinary, isn't it that this Sasha by Jules van should accurately? Imagine that one day nations will be so keen to acquire slow frontier with the North Pole. And this wasn't his only prediction. Well, he was remarkably prescient, you're right. So Verne understood that not only were nations like England and France interested in the North Pole. But so we're private investors. So the ones who win the auction are actually a private organization funded by a gun lobby and their scheme is that they with the help of an astronomer calculate that. They can shift the earth off its polar axis by the right amount, which will cause the Arctic sea ice to melt and in doing. So that reveals the rich seams of coal a fossil fuels and hydrocarbons in the Arctic to to profit from. Well, we've twelve quite a long time on the element of rock and claims of ownership and geopolitics, let's move onto our next element which is water and class in what ways washer around the North Pole significant geopolitically, I think it's important because. We're talking about here is a shift from thinking of the Arctic kind of frozen desert, but if actually ISIS replaced by open water, those waters around the North Pole are international waters. So they they belong to no one, but everyone and they become a kind of global common. So you've got to imagine a world we could yet. See where fish, stocks example, migrate ever further northwards. And so by the end of the twentieth century, we're looking at are well established, for example, commercial fishery in the central negotiation and flipped you in terms of wildlife in the final. What animals have you actually seen when your trips to the North Pole? Lots actually I mean, this is another way in which is so different from the antibiotic where life is almost entirely absent even right at the North Pole, particularly in some when the ice opens up you see seals. And this means that now you see polar bears right across the Arctic Ocean. Whereas it used to be the rule of thumb polar bears wouldn't go any further than sort of eighty seven degrees north where the ice edge was because that's where their prey was. But now pray can be anywhere. You are more likely to see photos, anywhere. Okay. Well, related to water, of course, is the element of sea ice class. The climate scientists worries about the impact of melting ice caps is well known of course. But just spell it out for us. What changes could be underway both for the Arctic ecosystem and more widely? If there's less ice at the North Pole. If you replace something that is white and reflects with something that is darker than heat is absorbed. So goes it also has a. Warming effect. So this will mean that life as we know it will change. But it also means that the Arctic becomes more accessible what we're now looking at is a world where commercial shipping is no longer a spectacular possibility, but actually is becoming more routine. And where we're beginning to talk for the first time of a shipping route across the central Arctic Ocean, and it's also a kind of counter intuitive quality about ice melt, so for example, because of gravitational pull when the Antarctic melts it's of more consequence for the northern hemisphere. And when the optic mounts, it's going to be potentially of more consequence to more southerly countries. So when China's says it is intimately connected to the Arctic. They're quite right to do..

"Is the BBC World Service. I'm Manuela, Santiago San and in business daily shortly. We ask three leading thinkers from the world of economics and finance to give us their predictions for the year ahead. Twenty nine thousand nine kicked off with volatile financial markets and a weakening global economy belt up for a bumpy ride ahead. That's after the news. BBC news. China has taken a major step forward in its efforts to become a leading power in space exploration by announcing. It has successfully landed a robotic probe on the far side of the moon. State media says the chunky four spacecraft touchdown early this morning in the unexplored south pole Aitken basin.

I yacht abandoned nine years ago in a storm by teenage American round the world sailor as we appearance off southern Australia. Abby Sunderland said seeing the vessel again brought back many memories. Good and not so good. She left the boat after its mast snapped BBC news. Hello and welcome to business daily from the BBC. I'm Manuela also in this prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future so said, the Nobel prize winner physics Neal's board, but that isn't gonna stop us from trying. We ended twenty eighteen with volatile financial markets and signs of a troubled global economy. So if last year was a bit of a wild ride should we hold on even tighter for twenty nine thousand nine we've brought together three leading thinkers from the world of finance economics and politics to discuss what could be installed and goes your contrary. Well are served twice as Nigeria's finance minister, and is a former managing director of the World Bank. Jeffrey Sachs's economics professor at Columbia University where he's also the director for the center for sustainable development. And we'll Hamill Aryan is chief economic adviser at the insurance giant Allianz and a former CEO of pimco, the world's largest investor in bonds, which. Liens now owns Muhammad, Larry. And I I do not expect a global recession because the US can avoid one as long as it doesn't make a major policy mistake. I do think however that parts of Europe will feel like they are again in recession and China will struggle to soft land is so no global recession, but there will be spots of significant economic hurt. Jeffrey Sachs, what do you make of that? I think it's important for us to speak. Not only about the short run business cycle, which is inevitably on people's minds. But on the fact that major challenges that continue to worsen environmental crises water, crises climate, change, crises migration. Forced by people facing violence or extreme poverty will not be addressed in one thousand nine hundred. It's very important that we not focus only on the ups and downs of the next quarter. But on the fact that we face major problems that need longer term thinking and longer term problem solving and we're utterly distracted right now. That's a very serious issue. And so whether or not there's a recession twenty nine thousand nine I would emphasize we will not be solving or even making much progress on major problems the way that we're going and goes you contrary without where does Africa fit into this picture. I think before we addressed the issue of Africa. I want to strongly support both Jeff and Mohammed have said on this and to add that really we ought to look at some medium term trends, which are continuing to one thousand nine hundred eighteen and beyond Jeff mentioned climate change. Also want to mention demographics. They demographic situation and the world will continue to. Underpin some of the performance slowing of growth in the developed world. Thirty percent of the population in Europe by twenty thirty. We'll be sixty and above twenty six percent of the population in North America will be sixty and above and six percent of the population in Africa will be sixty and above so for the developed countries. This means slow productivity slower growth, and there's a potential for people in Africa for Africa itself with this young population to be able to contribute in a dynamic way. But in terms of that change that you're talking about the demographic change at the same time Europe is facing a migration crisis, particularly with a lot of Africans coming there. Do you expect to see a repeat of that in two thousand nine hundred nineteen I think with the arrangements that Europe is making with various countries not only Turkey as many people talk about. But also, they're specifically made arrangements with several African countries to be able to return migrants. With aid to development, so as to try and create jobs. I think the rush of migrants will not be as difficult as the phenomenon we've seen in this past year, but it will continue maybe not at the same rate. And I think we really need to work together between Europe and Africa to see how we can continue to create jobs in Africa. But also there will be a need for labor in some of the European countries outcome, we have a winning situation whereby you have agreements to bring in people who come work and earn income switch. They can send back and have managed migration process instead of the very disruptive way that migration is happening now, but a lot of politicians and people in Europe don't see it in that kind of mutually beneficial way. That is true. I'm hoping that they'll be some courageous politicians. But if not Africans don't migrate because they want to live in other. Countries. I think we should think about what do we need to do primarily with Africans themselves taken first responsibility. But then having other governments work in a collaborative fashion to create jobs in manufacturing in agriculture in other sectors within the continent. And then we can keep a young people working. Aaron this economic slowdown that you foresee for two thousand nine hundred nineteen all these problems that goes, easy, and Geoffrey of outlined that imagine they will just be exacerbated by an economic slowdown. There will I mean, what you're hearing from my colleagues is the cost of too many years of insufficiently inclusive and insufficiently sustainable growth around the world and that fuels all sorts of problems that were apple by the global financial crisis that were amplified by a sense of economic, insecurity and that are being amplify. Fide by politics that exploiting concerns about identity, and that's why you have to start somewhere to break this vicious cycle. We have the lowest level of multilateral cooperation that I've seen in Sweden decades of working on these issues. So it's going to be a real test for political leaderships and without the political leaderships. You will not fix the economic financial institutional and social challenges that faces and goes, did you see that willingness? I think you have to look at several levels. I know that at the level of top leadership in developed countries that disagreements about which direction to go. But when you look at issues like climate change, you'll find that there is a strong movement, even knew certain countries are not willing leaders are not willing. You've got a situation in which civil society business. The private sector cities states are willing to go forward to cooperate on some of these issues. Are you thinking about? American particularly here the United States. Yes. In the United States. We've got cities we've got states we've got business globally that is pushing in a certain direction, and so whether or not we like it for certain of these global issues, it's happening. I think no way for instance, has announced that from twenty twenty five it's not going to have any fossil fuel driven cars, but only electric cars China that has launched a carbon market and aiming for low emissions and carbon trading. You've got other types of jurisdictions that are acting. So even though it looks like multi-laterally, there's not the kind of cooperation in certain areas in others. There is you're speaking there about people working together. But at the moment, the big issue in the next month or two even for the next year is whether China, and the US will sort out that trade differences, and this is where things get really complicated. Don't they? Jeffrey sachs. The US is absolutely neurotic about China. Or at least the US security establishment is I mean, how dare China become an economy at the scale of the United States in America's exceptionalism way of thinking America's supposed to be running the world. This is supposed to still be the American century were basically seventy years into that statement that was made in nineteen forty one. So from US point of view, not my point of view, but from the point of view of a zero sum world where somebody's on top. And somebody else has to be subordinate. The US thinking is China's just gotten out of hand too dangerous. And now we have to stop China from being able to continue to expand. It's a threat any gain of Chinese technology is a military and security threat to the western world. And so on and this is leading to way campaign against. China's major technology companies like, wow, we probably most in the news. But by you've criticized the arrest of this top executive of. Wow. In had a lot of backlash for that. As well. Have you? Absolutely. I pointed out that if you wanna talk about major companies that have violated US extraterritorial sanctions, you could start with almost every major Bank in the world. But I don't recall a single major US or European banker being hauled off from an airport into custody. The way that the CFO of was so I regard it as utterly extraordinary and provocative that says a lot about the toe of these trade talks, doesn't it? The interesting thing in the reaction for me was boy, how many people are ready to jump to a Cold War or more in the west with China. It's almost a kneejerk reaction that of course, they're guilty. Of course there. Stealing. Of course. They cheat were perfect. They cheat. Because if we are divided this way, and if were in a rasping each other's. Citizens, and if were trying to block offered the world technologically in and so on there's no hope that we're going to solve any of these problems, and it will not just be a zero sum game a so-called. It will be a negative some outcome. Everybody is going to lose from this. And that's unfortunately, the path that we're on with in temperate American president a hothead and this kind of geopolitical anxiety applied to qualify little bit..
