  • But critics of the withdrawal, including some Republican lawmakers, say it's not the right time to reduce US troop numbers in these countries and that the decision would come as good news to terrorist groups.

  • The withdrawal of many American troops is expected to be completed by January 15th of next year.

  • When you think about it, the poet Dylan Thomas is kind of relevant.

  • Egyptian authorities say they're in such good shape because they belong to people who were quote a little bit rich.

  • At least one of them contained a mummy, which officials air X raying to try to find out the person's gender and age of the time of death.

  • The find of more than 100 ancient coffins also contained 40 statues and other artifacts.

  • They'll be sent to museums throughout Egypt.

  • Announcements of MAWR discoveries from this area are expected in the weeks ahead.

  • The Egyptian government hopes finds like this will attract more tourists to the country, where political instability, terrorism and now the coronavirus pandemic have hurt that industry.

  • The issue of overfishing is our next topic.

  • It's taking fish out of the oceans faster than they can replenish their numbers.

  • Naturally, environmentalists say this condemn Ege the entire marine ecosystem.

  • There's several reasons this happens with a growing global population, There's a growing demand for seafood, the commercial fishing industry is expanding and many people rely on it for their livelihood.

  • But environmentalists say their arm or commercial fishermen and women than the world needs some people fish illegally or don't report everything they catch.

  • And critics say governments contribute to overfishing by paying commercial fishermen to help with their businesses.

  • There are rules in place around the world that aim to prevent overfishing.

  • One main way this has done is by putting limits on what people can catch.

  • Some fishermen opposed this, saying regulations make their jobs harder and limits make it harder for them to earn a living.

  • But for those who support over fishing regulations, there's a new tool available that can help them keep track of their catch.

  • Every day, thousands of fishing trawlers take to our seas, releasing miles and miles of nets to catch fish.

  • But over the last few decades this led to overfishing, dramatically depleting the seas of vital fish stocks.

  • Now, smart technology offers hope to tackle overfishing and illegal catches.

  • We need to find a way to harvest the fish sustainably in the center of Ocean Laboratory in Trondheim, Norway, that cutting edge technology is being developed.

  • An indoor pool that simulates an ocean basin.

  • Laser scanners that analyzed fish stocks and three D visualization techniques that reproduce the seabed are being used to lead the fight against over fishing.

  • We want Thio first of all, make sure that we have a way of finding out how much fish this in the ocean, how much can we harvest within sustainable limits?

  • According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, 34.2% of the world's fish stocks were over fished in 2017 Cinta Foshan believes it's catch Scanner technology can address that its laser and a three D camera system on artificial intelligence to do the analysis.

  • If you have a fish like this plastic fish on, do you send it through the scanner, then it builds up a three D image and a cholera image at the same time.

  • This is used by artificial intelligence to estimate the weight on the species.

  • This then allows us to know exactly how much fish were fishing so that we can adjust the quotas appropriately.

  • Thes new smart devices will be tested by some of Europe's fishing industry.

  • If successful, the hope is for a widespread adoption.

  • So in order for the fishers to want to have them aboard, they need to see the benefit of this will be a better able to assess.

  • The stocks in general will be able to set regulations that are realistic on.

  • We'll be able Thio have a better understanding off how sustainable we really are.

  • This larger research project, known a smart fish H 2020 is being funded by the European Union in an effort to modernize the industry and eliminate overfishing.

  • What we want to see happen is that you chooses to install these technologies on board fishing vessels.

  • That is the main goal of this.
