Although perseverance is a pretty sophisticated robotic geologist, scientists would like to be able to confirm the rovers analyses with instruments only available on Earth.

Perseverance will ultimately leave the collection tubes on the Martian surface for a subsequent mission to return them to Earth, perhaps in a decade or so. Joe Palka

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.

"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.

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..
