but, basically, i'm for restitution. even if there are circumstances which mean that the works of art may not be secure? we saw how the treasures of timbuktu... that's a... no. ..in mali — when it was overrun by extremists, people really worried about what would happen to these fine treasures in 2013. that's. .. that is really a colonial attitude towards art and also towards museums. and the fact that africa has made incredible progress in sort of excavating their own history and celebrating it, so that's not the problem. it's... you know, it's a false... you know, it's a false excuse.
i wanted to show you these old herbarium sheets. their samples go back 100 years and they're looking to crossbreed these older plants with today's varieties. and what we want to do is look for new and useful genetic variation. so disease resistance, stress resistance, increased yield. they've already started some field trials. it's essential to find solutions. climate change and the extreme weather it brings is reducing the amount we can grow globally. and pests and diseases are a big problem, too. one fifth of the projected yield is lost to them each year. there's a very important disease of wheat, which is a global problem called yellow rust, and that has been increasingly difficult to control and defend wheat against. within this collection of old wheat, there are new resistances to that disease which stand up against this disease. and they're being deployed by breeders right now to defend this really important threat
keep to 18. that is his problem. so he will misrepresent my record, he will misrepresent eric swalwell or elon omar, whatever he needs to do to get the votes of the qanon caucus within this conference. >> whatever he needs to do. joining me now to discuss, senior editor for insider, katie tubman. an msnbc contributor david rogue. he's the executive editor for news at the new yorker. it's good to see you both. katie, you just heard adam schiff criticize mccarthy for not having his own ideology. no set of core beliefs. i wonder, and as much as if that's a critique from -- if republicans are likewise skeptical about mccarthy for the same reasons? >> absolutely, alicia. i think we are thinking about two years of mccarthy basically throwing himself behind trump and a lot of the questions being, well, what does he stand for? we heard criticisms from other folks in his party saying that he would sell out his own mother for his own ambitions. so this can only not be coming
important disease of wheat, which is a global problem called yellow rust, and that has been increasingly difficult to control and defend wheat against. within this collection of old wheat, there are new resistances to that disease which stand up against this disease. and they're being deployed by breeders right now to defend this really important threat to wheat production. the wheat we grow is going to have to change. looking back into our past and rediscovering lost varieties could be the best way to move forward. rebecca morelle, bbc news. dua lipa has received albanian citizenship in a ceremony hosted by the albanian president in tirana. the singer was born in london, but her roots go back to kosovo. wendy urquhart reports. # i got you, moonlight. # you're my starlight... dua lipa is famous all over the world, and her disco—pop songs have won her
but it�*s also stayed with me because i don�*t think we should ever get to a point as a society where people have to depend on the charity and goodwill of others in order to get by. it should be a given. and this happens today and this is — this is what�*s facing so many families across britain at the moment. they don�*t have enough money in order to notjust afford the basics, but actually to give their children really enriching, happy, fulfilled childhoods. it should be a given that families can afford a coat for their kids. i want children to have much more in modern britain. it�*s an irony, isn�*t it, it�*s often the people who�*ve got the least then find themselves burgled? yeah. not the people with the with the most. there was a lot of crime, i think, in washington, tyne and wear at that time. there was. we lived near a railway line — a mothballed railway line at that point — and there wasjoyriding, so—called, was a big problem at that point, so you would frequently hear the sirens as the police came
(burke) nothing. (customer) nothing? (burke) nothing. (customer) hmm, that is really something. (burke) you get a whole lot of something with farmers policy perks. see ya. (kid) may i have a balloon, too? (burke) sure. your parents have maintained a farmers home policy for twelve consecutive months, right? ♪ we are farmers. bum-pa-dum, bum-bum-bum-bum ♪ just look around. this digital age we're living in, it's pretty unbelievable. problem is, not everyone's fully living in it. nobody should have to take a class
like artificial fertilisers. the project will take months to complete. ah, so here we are. at thejohn innes centre in norwich, they're also shining a light on the past. i wanted to show you these old herbarium sheets. their samples go back 100 years and they're looking to cross—breed these older plants with today's varieties. and what we want to do is look for new and useful genetic variation. so disease resistance, stress resistance, increased yield. they've already started some field trials. it's essential to find solutions. climate change and the extreme weather it brings is reducing the amount we can grow globally. and pests and diseases are a big problem, too. 0ne fifth of the projected yield is lost to them each year. there's a very
aware and educated as to the options out there. trey: you hinted at parent-teacher conferences that brings back so many terrible memories for my parents. for those parents who did not have discipline problem children. and they are going to the parent teacher conferences, what are specific questions to ask their teachers? >> it is so important to find out whether or not your child is performing to grade level. if they are not, that means they are in the lowest 50 percentile for that subject. this is a big problem. they are not getting the skills they need to be able to be successful in the next grade. so parents really need to listen to what their teachers are saying. if they are telling you, your child is not performing on grade level, it is time to get help right away. if they are telling that you your child is not retaining
it was often we were the only single—parent family and we were just as much a family as anybody else, and that�*s what really made me angry about it all. and my mam couldn�*t work when i was younger and that was in part because there was no access to childcare, that — which is, sadly, you know, becoming increasingly a problem and is a real priority for me because if we want to make sure that people can play their full contribution in society, then i think that�*s where government has a role to play in making that as easy as possible. now, where you weren�*t getting help on benefits, there were other people who had to help even when you were little to get you a coat. yeah, my — one of our neighbours put a note through the door with some money in order to buy me a winter coat. it had come up in conversation. he was a really kind... he was retired by this point, really kind, didn�*t have very much money himself, but knew that we were struggling, that my mam was struggling to afford to buy me a winter coat and put the money through the door, which was wonderfully kind and really generous and it�*s always stayed with me,
