The HISTORY Channel's nonfiction series The Proof Is Out There, hosted by veteran TV journalist Tony Harris, is back for a new season featuring some of the most incredible and thought-provoking videos of unexplained phenomena and mysterious must-see moments. Premiering Thursday, September 16 at 10pm ET/PT, each episode explores and analyzes the full story of each irregularity – and through expert examination and the use of the latest technologies -- The Proof Is Out There aims to get to the bottom of what's real? What's fake? And everything in between. This season, The Proof is Out There will examine phenomena such as “The “Green Pyramid” video leaked from the US Navy; The “Utah Monolith” discovered late last year; The “Jetpack Man of Los Angeles” who has been sighted in the skies as recently as last month; The recent ODNI report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena; and recent analysis and revelations about the most famous Bigfoot caught-on-camera sighting of all time, the Patterson-Gimlen film. Featuring clips of found footage, still images and audio recordings from private citizens and government agencies, The Proof Is Out There uses the latest technology, rigorous authentication techniques, and cutting-edge analytic processes to separate the fantastic from the fraudulent. Harris, alongside a decorated team of experts and investigators, examine each video in question to make compelling revelations and conclusions surrounding the most debated videos and public images ever shared. Tony Harris is a news anchor, television correspondent, and filmmaker. Harris anchored the flagship Al Jazeera Newshour from the company's global headquarters in Doha, Qatar, becoming the first African-American anchor to be based outside the U.S. for a global news network.

Global Football organisation FIFA is considering a move to holding a men's World Cup Competition every two years, rather than every four. It is carrying out a feasibility study led by former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. Over half of FIFA's 210 national associations have given their backing to the study into the idea but the move has brought condemnation from some corners with commentators claiming it's just a cash grab. But the idea for a shift to biennial competitions has supporters as well. Among them New Zealand footballer and former All White captain Ryan Nelsen. He was in Doha last week to hear FIFA outline their proposed plan for the change.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Samstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.USA begehen 20. Jahrestag der Terroranschläge Mit einer Reihe von Gedenkveranstaltungen begehen die USA an diesem Samstag den 20. Jahrestag der Terroranschläge vom 11. September 2001. In New York werden am früheren Standort des World Trade Centers die Namen der fast 3000 Anschlagsopfer verlesen. Mitglieder des Terrornetzwerks Al-Kaida hatten drei entführte Flugzeuge in die Türme des World Trade Centers und in das US-Verteidigungsministerium vor Washington gesteuert. Eine vierte Maschine stürzte im Bundesstaat Pennsylvania ab, nachdem Passagiere sich gegen die Kidnapper aufgelehnt hatten. Präsident Joe Biden bezeichnete die nationale Einheit als größte Stärke der USA. Zweite Passagiermaschine verlässt Kabul Zum zweiten Mal sind mit einem Flugzeug der Gesellschaft Qatar Airways Menschen aus der afghanischen Hauptstadt Kabul in Sicherheit gebracht worden. Unter den 158 Passagieren sollen auch deutsche Staatsbürger gewesen sein. Nach Angaben aus Paris waren zudem 49 Franzosen und deren Angehörige in der Maschine, die Katars Hauptstadt Doha ansteuerte. An Bord waren auch 19 US-Bürger. Am Donnerstag hatte ein Flugzeug von Qatar Airways mehr als 100 ausländische Staatsbürger von Kabul aus nach Doha gebracht. Es war der erste zivile Flug nach dem Ende der militärischen Evakuierungsmission. Berichte: Vier aus Gefängnis in Israel geflüchtete Häftlinge gefasst Knapp eine Woche nach der Flucht sechs militanter palästinensischer Häftlinge aus einem israelischen Hochsicherheitsgefängnis sind Medienberichten zufolge vier von ihnen gefasst worden. Zwei der Männer wurden in der Stadt Nazareth unweit des Gefängnisses festgenommen. Nur Stunden später konnten zwei weitere Häftlinge gefasst werden - darunter der frühere Palästinenserführer Sakaria Subeidi. Die Nachricht von der Festnahme der Flüchtigen löste Demonstrationen im Westjordanland aus. Milliardär wird neuer Regierungschef in Marokko König Mohammed VI. hat den Geschäftsmann Aziz Akhannouch zum neuen marokkanischen Regierungschef ernannt. Der Monarch empfing Akhannouch und beauftragte ihn mit der Bildung einer neuen Regierung, wie der Palast mitteilte. Akhannouchs liberale Partei Unabhängige Nationalversammlung (RNI) war bei der Parlamentswahl vom Mittwoch stärkste Kraft geworden. Sie erhielt 102 von 395 Sitzen. Die seit 2011 regierenden gemäßigten Islamisten der Partei für Gerechtigkeit und Entwicklung (PJD) fuhren massive Verluste ein und kamen laut Innenministerium nur auf 13 Mandate. Steinmeier dankt Zuwanderern für Aufbauleistung Bundespräsident Frank-Walter Steinmeier hat die Aufbauleistung von Türken, Italienern, Spaniern, Griechen und der Menschen aus anderen Staaten in Deutschland gewürdigt. Die Bundesrepublik verdanke den sogenannten Gastarbeitern und ihren Nachkommen viel, sagte Steinmeier bei einer Gesprächsrunde im Schloss Bellevue in Berlin zum 60. Jahrestag des Anwerbeabkommens mit der Türkei. Dazu gehöre nicht nur das deutsche Wirtschaftswunder, sondern auch die Entwicklung der Gesellschaft. Steinmeier würdigte zudem die Lebensleistung der Menschen aus "Bruderstaaten" der DDR wie Kuba, Vietnam und Mosambik.

Everybody has been through a lot. You never know who can relate to those stories as well. I'm a big advocate of showing a light on everyone.” Teahna Daniels is a professional sprinter for Nike, who had a breakout season in 2021 to run 10.83 at the Prefontaine Classic, which ties her for No. 14 on the all-time U.S. list. This has been a season where Sha'Carri Richardson has been the No. 1 U.S. female sprinter in all of the headlines but why not spread the love and the attention on some of the women who are also running fast behind her. Teahna is No. 2 for the United States in the U.S. In this episode, you'll learn about her upbringing in Florida, where she lit it up as a high schooler. She went on to run at Texas, where she won an NCAA title in the 60-meter dash. As a professional, she was the 2019 U.S. Champion and went on to finish 7th at that year's world championships in Doha. Two years later, she made her first Olympic team and also took 7th in the 100 meter final (where she was the only American woman).

When Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo constructed the Doha Peace Agreement back in 2020 without the Afghanistan Government at the negotiating table, wherein Trump demanded that the Afghanistan Government release 5000 'prisoners' and then told Afghan to keep on fighting and then subsequently drew down American troops to just 2500 troops- that's when Afghanistan was lost. Who negotiates with the Taliban, the enemy of Afghanistan, to have Afghanistan release 5000 Taliban prisoners and then turns around and tells the Afghans to keep fighting the Taliban? Donald Trump did, the 'great' negotiator.. that's when we lost Afghanistan folks, when that so-called 'Doha Peace Agreement' was signed. That's when the Afghan army crumbled, that's when they were demoralized and the damage of that agreement spread like a disease into the timeframe of 7/23/2021 when  Joe Biden had his last call with then president Ghani of Afghanistan. Reuters has leaked audio from that call and we'll discuss what Trump did and how Ghani made a cry for help in that call -- but it was far too late, the damage had already been done by Trump when he signed the Doha surrender back in 2/2020.

Today's show is with athletic performance coach and long term athletic development expert, James Baker.  James is one of the co-founders of the LTAD Network, and is currently a Strength & Conditioning coach and Performance Support Lead at the Aspire Academy in Doha, Qatar.  James has a unique blend of skills and experience as a S&C coach, PE teacher, sport scientist and researcher. So many times in sports performance, and particularly in the sub-set of speed and power training, we look to focus on the most high intensity methods we can possibly utilize to achieve adaptations in athletes.  Or perhaps, we inquire to the optimal technical or tactical methods for the sport in front of us. Unfortunately, we don't tend to look much at the entire, long-term process of an athlete achieving their best possible result in a sport, as well as being well balanced outside of their sport specific ventures.  To give athletes the best training experience, we need to have a thorough understanding on how they might respond various training methods along different points in their athletic journey. Look at the long term process; look at the love of movement and play outside of one's specific sport, better understand the entire umbrella of what it means to be both human and an athlete On today's show, James will discuss the difference between early specialization and early engagement, and the need for athletes to love and appreciate other forms of movement and play as their sport career unfolds.  He will also take on free-moving sports like parkour in relation to ball sports, and then deliver some great ideas on progressing plyometric and strength training means over the course of an athlete's development. For those of you who don't work directly with growing athletes, realize that by learning more about how young athletes develop, you can learn a lot more about the mature athlete in front of you, and the process that led him or her there.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Mittwoch – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Biden: "Es war Zeit, diesen Krieg zu beenden" US-Präsident Joe Biden hat Kritik am Truppenabzug aus Afghanistan entschieden zurückgewiesen. Im Weißen Haus sagte er, das Ende des 20-jährigen Militäreinsatzes sei "die beste Entscheidung für Amerika" gewesen: "Es war an der Zeit, diesen Krieg zu beenden." Die Evakierungsmission nannte Biden einen "außergewöhnlichen Erfolg". Mehr als 120.000 Menschen seien in Sicherheit gebracht worden. "Wir haben eine der größten Luftbrücken der Geschichte abgeschlossen", betonte er mit Blick auf den Rettungseinsatz für westliche Staatsbürger und afghanische Ortskräfte nach der Machtübernahme der Taliban. Bald wieder deutsche Botschaft in Kabul? Außenminister Heiko Maas hat die Bereitschaft zur Wiederbesetzung der deutschen Botschaft in Kabul angedeutet. Wenn es politisch möglich wäre und die Sicherheitslage es erlaube, sollte auch Deutschland in Kabul wieder eine Botschaft haben, sagte Maas in Doha. Es gebe ein großes Bedürfnis nach diplomatischer Präsenz. Deutschland führe bereits Gespräche mit den Taliban über praktische Fragen. Wenn die Taliban nach Hilfe riefen, müssten sie auch auf Bedingungen der internationalen Gemeinschaft eingehen. Für Deutschland gehörten dazu die Anerkennung der Menschenrechte und Sicherheitsgarantien. Neues Abkommen für Sicherheit in Textilfabriken in Bangladesch Internationale Modeketten und Gewerkschaften haben einen neuen Vertrag geschlossen, der die Sicherheit in Textilfabriken in Bangladesch erhöhen soll. Das Abkommen mit mindestens zweijähriger Laufzeit tritt an diesem Mittwoch in Kraft. Es folgt auf eine Vereinbarung zu Brandschutz und Gebäudesicherheit, die Modeketten und Gewerkschaften nach dem Einsturz eines Fabrikgebäudes in Rana Plaza mit mehr als 1100 Toten vor acht Jahren geschlossen hatten. Diese Vereinbarung läuft Ende August aus. Bangladesch ist nach China hier der weltgrößte Produzent von Kleidung. Venezolanische Opposition will an Regionalwahlen teilnehmen Nach mehreren Boykotten möchte Venezuelas Opposition rund um den selbsternannten Übergangspräsidenten Juan Guaidó bei den Regionalwahlen am 21. November mitmachen. "Wir haben diese Entscheidung nach einem schwierigen Prozess interner Überlegungen getroffen", erklärte die Plataforma Unitaria, der wichtige Oppositionsparteien wie Primero Justicia und Voluntad Popular angehören. In Kürze wollen Regierung und Opposition im seit Jahren schwelenden Konflikt ihren Dialog in Mexiko wieder aufnehmen. Die Opposition fordert freie Wahlen und die Freilassung der politischen Gefangenen. Irland beendet fast alle Corona-Beschränkungen im Oktober Die irische Regierung will fast alle Restriktionen zur Corona-Pandemie im Oktober aufheben. Das teilte Ministerpräsident Micheal Martin in Dublin mit. Ab dem 22. Oktober würden Impfnachweise in Bars und Restaurants nicht mehr benötigt. Auch solle die Zahl der Besucher bei Veranstaltungen in Innen- oder Außenbereichen nicht mehr begrenzt werden. Die Regierung empfiehlt zudem die Wiedereröffnung von Theatern und Kinos in der nächsten Woche mit einer Kapazität von 60 Prozent und die Rückkehr von nicht systemrelevanten Mitarbeitern in Büros ab dem 20. September. Parlament in Texas beschließt umstrittene Wahlrechtsänderungen Das Parlament im US-Bundesstaat Texas hat eine umstrittene Wahlrechtsreform verabschiedet. Diese sieht unter anderem ein Verbot des sogenannten Drive-in-Wählens, eine Begrenzung der Briefwahl-Möglichkeiten sowie kürzere Öffnungszeiten von Wahllokalen vor. Das von den Republikanern vorangetriebene Gesetz wurde nach wochenlangem Streit beschlossen. Die oppositionellen Demokraten in Texas sehen in der Wahlrechtsreform einen Versuch der Republikaner, Afroamerikanern und anderen Minderheiten die Teilnahme an Wahlen zu erschweren.

Los talibanes prosiguen su ofensiva en Afganistán. Sus fuerzas han logrado ocupar Faizabad, capital de la provincia norteña de Badajshán. Es la novena capital regional que caer en manos de las milicias talibanes en menos de una semana. Después de días de enfrentamientos, los combatientes talibanes lograron hace dos días hacer retroceder a las fuerzas del ejército afgano y entraron en la ciudad desde varias direcciones sin apenas oposición. Sin la presencia militar estadounidense e internacional, que se ha ido retirando paulatinamente durante los últimos años, las tropas fieles al Gobierno de Kabul continúan sufriendo reveses y derrotas, no solo en Faizabad. También perdieron el control de instituciones clave en la ciudad de Fará. Entretanto, los talibanes han proclamado en Twitter que acababan de tomar (en la tarde del martes) la capital de la provincia de Baghlan, Pul-e-Jumri, situada a unos 200 kilómetros al norte de Kabul. El presidente del Alto Consejo para la Reconciliación Nacional de Afganistán, Abdulá Abdulá, ha pedido a los talibanes desde Doha, la capital de Qatar, el cese inmediato de las hostilidades. Quiere también que presenten cuanto antes un plan político para salir de una crisis, en la que, según él, no tiene cabida una solución militar. Para los talibanes, acaudillados ahora por Haibatulá Ajundzada, un ulema muy intransigente de 60 años, la única solución posible es la militar. De continuar todo como hasta ahora la inteligencia estadounidense cree que se apoderará de todo el país antes de final de año.

AFGHANISTAN : LES TALIBANS ONT-ILS GAGNÉ ? – 11/08/21 Invités MYRIAM BENRAAD Professeure associée en relations internationales Politologue - Spécialiste du Moyen-Orient JACQUES FOLLOROU Journaliste au service international – « Le Monde » RÉGIS LE SOMMIER Grand reporter ARMELLE CHARRIER Éditorialiste en politique internationale - « France 24 » Jour après jour, ville après ville, elle se poursuit. L'avancée des Talibans semble inexorable en Afghanistan alors que les dernières troupes américaines partiront le 11 septembre prochain. Les insurgés sont aujourd'hui à la tête de neuf des 34 capitales provinciales du pays. Hier, les Talibans s'approchaient de Mazar-i-Sharif, la plus grande ville du nord du pays, obligeant de nombreux civils à s'enfuir. Dans ce contexte, le président afghan Ashraf Ghani appelle la population à prendre les armes pour se défendre, alors que les femmes s'inquiètent de se retrouver confrontées à la loi islamique dans sa plus strict interprétation. Dans la lignée de la politique trumpiste de "ramener les boys à la maison", Joe Biden confirme la volonté des États-Unis de quitter l'Afghanistan. "Je ne regrette pas ma décision", a assuré mardi le président américain. Ce départ des troupes américaines marquera la fin de vingt années d'intervention US dans le pays depuis les attentats du 11 septembre. Après avoir réussi à emmener la communauté internationale sur ce théâtre de guerre et après la mort de Ben Laden en 2011, c'est progressivement que les États-Unis ont exprimé leur décision de partir. En février 2020, à Doha au Qatar, Washington signe finalement avec les Talibans un accord fixant les conditions et le calendrier précis du retrait des troupes. Les conditions étaient alors clairement à l'avantage des Talibans, avec un gouvernement afghan absent de l'accord, et les insurgés auront tôt fait de reconquérir le pays. Côté troupes françaises, il y a aussi les auxiliaires afghans, ceux qui aident et qui traduisent. Cibles des Talibans, ils demandent aujourd'hui une protection et leur rapatriement dans l'Hexagone alors qu'ils sont en danger de mort. Mais les problèmes d'obtention de visa apparaissent comme un manque de reconnaissance, tout comme l'accueil quasi inexistant en France lorsqu'il l'obtiennent. Alors, qui peut aujourd'hui contrer l'offensive talibane ? Le retrait totale de l'armée américaine du sol afghan va-t-il être catastrophique pour les populations ? Pourquoi la France montre si peu d'égards pour les auxiliaires afghans de son armée ?

Durum şu, Taliban sahayı ele geçirdi ve bazı merkezlerde Kabil Yönetimi ile Kuzey İttifakı Taliban'ın ilerleyişine karşı birlikte savaşma hazırlığı içerisinde, Doha'daki görüşmelerden bir barış anlaşması çıkmayacak. Bu dudumda, "Afganistan'da bir iç savaş çıktı çıkacak!" demek mümkündür. Peki, ABD neden burayı terk etmekte ısrarlı?

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Dienstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.China bestätigt Todesurteil gegen kanadischen Drogenschmuggler Vor dem Hintergrund der Spannungen zwischen China und Kanada hat die Volksrepublik das Todesurteil gegen einen kanadischen Drogenhändler bestätigt. Dies teilte das Berufungsgericht in der Provinz Liaoning mit. Robert Lloyd Schellenberg hatte 2018 zunächst eine Haftstrafe von 15 Jahren erhalten. Sie wurde aber als zu gering befunden, nachdem in Kanada die Finanzchefin des chinesischen Telekom-Riesen Huawei, Meng Wanzhou, festgenommen worden war. Ihr wird in den USA Bankbetrug im Zusammenhang mit Verstößen gegen Iran-Sanktionen vorgeworfen. In Kanada läuft ein Verfahren zur Auslieferung Mengs. USA wollen Taliban zu Verhandlungen bewegen Der US-Sondergesandte für Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, soll mit den Taliban über eine Beendigung ihrer Militäroffensive und eine Verhandlungslösung sprechen. Zu diesem Zweck sei Khalilzad nach Doha abgereist, teilte das US-Außenministerium mit. Er hatte in der Hauptstadt von Katar in den vergangenen Monaten maßgeblich die Modalitäten des Abzugs der US-Truppen mit den Taliban ausgehandelt. Die radikalislamischen Kämpfer bringen derzeit immer mehr Gebiete in Afghanistan unter ihre Kontrolle. Inzwischen haben sie sechs Provinzhauptstädte erobert, darunter den früheren Bundeswehrstandort Kundus. Corona-Schutzimpfung wird für US-Armee Pflicht Für die US-Streitkräfte soll spätestens ab 15. September eine Impfpflicht gegen das Coronavirus gelten. Mehr als drei Viertel der Soldaten sind bereits vollständig dagegen geimpft. Mit der in Kürze erwarteten regulären Zulassung des Vakzins von BioNTech/Pfizer soll die Impfung nun für alle US-Soldaten verpflichtend werden. Das geht aus einem Schreiben von Verteidigungsminister Lloyd Austin hervor. Präsident Joe Biden teilte bereits mit, er unterstütze das Vorhaben des Pentagon-Chefs. Derzeit gilt für alle Corona-Impfstoffe in den USA noch eine Notfallzulassung der Arzneimittelbehörde FDA. Gratis-Corona-Tests sollen im Oktober enden In Deutschland sollen die für die Bürger kostenlosen Schnelltests auf Corona weitgehend abgeschafft werden. Das sei angesichts des bestehenden Impfangebots angemessen, heißt es in einer Beschlussvorlage für die Bund-Länder-Konferenz an diesem Dienstag, aus der mehrere Medien berichten. Geplant sei die Änderung für Oktober. Ungeimpften drohen Einschränkungen. Noch im August soll laut der Beschlussvorlage eine sogenannte 3G-Regel greifen, die den Zutritt zu zahlreichen Bereichen des gesellschaftlichen Lebens nur noch für komplett Geimpfte, Genesene oder getestete Menschen erlaubt. Marburg-Fieber in Guinea nachgewiesen In Guinea ist ein Infektionsfall mit dem hochansteckenden Marburgvirus entdeckt worden. Der Erreger löst eine lebensbedrohliche Erkrankung aus, gegen die es weder eine Impfung noch Medikamente gibt. Wie die Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) mitteilte, handelt es sich um den bisher ersten Fall des Marburg-Fiebers überhaupt in Westafrika. Die WHO-Regionaldirektorin für Afrika, Matshidiso Moeti, sagte, das Virus habe das Potenzial, sich weit zu verbreiten und müsse deshalb rasch gestoppt werden. Das Marburgvirus stammt aus derselben Erreger-Familie wie das Ebolavirus. Prinz Andrew wegen sexuellen Missbrauchs verklagt In den USA hat eine Frau Klage gegen den britischen Prinzen Andrew wegen sexuellen Missbrauchs eingereicht. Sie sei vor Jahren als 17-Jährige dem Sohn der britischen Königin zugeführt worden, damit dieser sich mehrfach an ihr vergehen konnte, teilte das mutmaßliche Opfer mit. Die Klage reichte sie beim Bundesgericht in Manhattan ein. Virginia Giuffre hatte bereits im Jahr 2019 die Vorwürfe gegen den Prinzen öffentlich gemacht. Sie war Hauptklägerin im Prozess um den US-Sexualstraftäter Jeffrey Epstein und dessen Pädophilen-Ring, wo auch immer wieder der Name Prinz Andrew auftauchte.
