1
00:00:11,400 --> 00:00:16,550
Political and cultural divisions lead off
CNN STUDENT NEWS this Thursday. I`m Carl Azuz.

2
00:00:16,550 --> 00:00:20,550
We`re glad you`re watching. Over the past
couple of weeks, we`ve told you about protests

3
00:00:20,550 --> 00:00:27,180
going on in three world capitals, Kiev, Ukraine,
Bangkok, Thailand, Karakas, Venezuela. These

4
00:00:27,180 --> 00:00:32,650
are divided nations. Governments and those
who support them are facing off against protesters

5
00:00:32,650 --> 00:00:37,640
who want those governments changed. And what`s
started as peaceful demonstrations in some

6
00:00:37,640 --> 00:00:42,610
cases, have turned violent. Our look into
these events begins in the Ukrainian capital

7
00:00:42,610 --> 00:00:49,340
where dozens have died in recent fighting
as other countries consider getting involved.

8
00:00:49,340 --> 00:00:53,330
Capital cities are in chaos. Karakas ...
Kiev.

9
00:00:53,330 --> 00:00:54,680
On the streets of Bangkok.

10
00:00:54,680 --> 00:00:59,70
The images are stunning and the atmosphere
- it`s deadly.

11
00:00:59,70 --> 00:01:04,540
Look at live pictures here of antigovernment
protests taking place in the Ukrainian capital

12
00:01:04,540 --> 00:01:05,540
Kiev.

13
00:01:05,540 --> 00:01:10,580
When the protesters came up to the parliamentary
building, they called government quite (ph)

14
00:01:10,580 --> 00:01:15,189
around it, and this is when the flashes started.

15
00:01:15,189 --> 00:01:20,520
I (inaudible) in Independence Square which
has been the setup point for the opposition

16
00:01:20,520 --> 00:01:21,520
movement.

17
00:01:21,520 --> 00:01:25,210
And it is where the crowds have effectively
been driven through the streets of Kiev.

18
00:01:25,210 --> 00:01:33,780
It`s the long line of fires. Those are fires
set by whom? What exactly are we looking at?

19
00:01:33,780 --> 00:01:39,730
It is bad, as far as I can see, a burning
fire, an (inaudible) and the purpose is clearly

20
00:01:39,730 --> 00:01:44,530
to form a defensive barrier and stop the police
and security services getting through.

21
00:01:44,530 --> 00:01:49,690
This is all about whether Ukraine is a European
nation or part of Russia. That`s what this

22
00:01:49,690 --> 00:01:52,210
is really all about.

23
00:01:52,210 --> 00:01:57,479
The protests are also taking place on the
streets of Thailand. Protesters have been

24
00:01:57,480 --> 00:02:01,570
camped out in Bangkok since November, demanding
the prime minister step down.

25
00:02:01,570 --> 00:02:13,329
It was a street process that was supposed
to be peaceful, and then this happened.

26
00:02:13,330 --> 00:02:18,250
One of the police officers was killed, at
least three civilians in the ensuing violence,

27
00:02:18,250 --> 00:02:23,700
Patricia, have also been killed. The protest
leader Suthep Thaugsuban, who leads this umbrella

28
00:02:23,700 --> 00:02:28,629
group of protesters, if you like. He said
he was sorry about the violence, but he said

29
00:02:28,629 --> 00:02:33,230
that they will backed out in force. So, they
want to see her step down. She`s refusing

30
00:02:33,230 --> 00:02:38,179
to go, she held an election. It was inconclusive.
And now we are seeing that things are getting

31
00:02:38,180 --> 00:02:47,760
up to boiling points on the streets of Bangkok.

32
00:02:47,760 --> 00:02:52,720
Demonstrations last week left three people
dead, four people have already died in protest

33
00:02:52,720 --> 00:02:54,90
against the socialist government ...

34
00:02:54,90 --> 00:02:59,90
Antigovernment protesters are still blocking
the six lane freeway that leads through the

35
00:02:59,90 --> 00:03:02,280
heart of Karakas.

36
00:03:02,280 --> 00:03:07,950
That move to blockade (inaudible) comes just
hours after the Harvard- educated, Ohio State

37
00:03:07,950 --> 00:03:14,230
educated Leopoldo Lopez turned himself in
to the National Guard. The government has

38
00:03:14,230 --> 00:03:19,859
accused him of provoking what they called
fascism after stocking this (inaudible) in

39
00:03:19,860 --> 00:03:24,329
Karakas, which have now been going on a week.
But if (inaudible) is much bigger than a fight

40
00:03:24,329 --> 00:03:30,529
just against the government of Nicolas Maduro.
This is Venezuela right wing opposition, fighting

41
00:03:30,529 --> 00:03:37,480
against what they see as a 16-year old experiment
in socialism. They say, enough is enough.

42
00:03:37,480 --> 00:03:40,988
And (inaudible) of government.

43
00:03:40,989 --> 00:03:46,280
An update last night concerning Ukraine. President
Viktor Yanukovych said that negotiations had

44
00:03:46,280 --> 00:03:51,920
begun aimed at stopping the bloodshed and
stabilizing the situation in Ukraine "for

45
00:03:51,920 --> 00:03:57,89
the sake of civil peace." The U.S. State Department
said the Ukrainian government and opposition

46
00:03:57,90 --> 00:04:02,810
were moving toward a truce, though fires set
in Kiev continue to burn throughout the night.

47
00:04:02,810 --> 00:04:07,859
The economies of the world are tied together.
A boomer bust in one world capital can affect

48
00:04:07,859 --> 00:04:13,349
the economies of others. Easy concept. But
predicting what the global economy will do

49
00:04:13,349 --> 00:04:18,510
is like predicting the future. One article
I read yesterday said the global economy is

50
00:04:18,510 --> 00:04:23,889
weak. Another says it`s on the up and up.
One thing economists look at when making predictions

51
00:04:23,889 --> 00:04:25,80
is unemployment.

52
00:04:25,80 --> 00:04:31,378
Japan`s unemployment rate fell to 3.7 percent
in December a six year low, while the availability

53
00:04:31,379 --> 00:04:36,599
of jobs improved to a six-year high. And while
that is good news, the number of contract

54
00:04:36,599 --> 00:04:42,99
workers who are paid less than regular staff,
is still at a record high. And this week,

55
00:04:42,99 --> 00:04:47,710
Japan released GDP figures, which pointed
to a slowing economy due to weak exports and

56
00:04:47,710 --> 00:04:52,469
a concern over job security and wages. Now,
that fear seems to be holding back consumer

57
00:04:52,470 --> 00:04:57,139
spending before a rise in the national sales
tax in April makes goods much more expensive.

58
00:04:57,139 --> 00:05:02,509
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has pressed large
companies like Toyota to raise wages. It`s

59
00:05:02,509 --> 00:05:06,000
not very clear that smaller companies will
be able to follow soon.

60
00:05:06,000 --> 00:05:09,850
The Middle East and North Africa region has
a dubious honor of having the highest youth

61
00:05:09,850 --> 00:05:14,789
unemployment rate in the world. The situation
has most occurred in the countries of the

62
00:05:14,789 --> 00:05:18,680
Arab Spring. In North Africa, youth unemployment
is 29 percent.

63
00:05:18,680 --> 00:05:24,630
I think what Arab Spring has, indeed, to a
certain extent locked out or slowed down the

64
00:05:24,630 --> 00:05:29,930
development of the private sector, because
it slowed down - slowed down attracting investments

65
00:05:29,930 --> 00:05:31,449
coming into the region.

66
00:05:31,449 --> 00:05:36,360
U.K. unemployment picked at 8.4 percent in
2011, right to the height of the nation`s

67
00:05:36,360 --> 00:05:40,800
double dip. Well, since then it`s tumbled
rapidly toward seven percent, a figure deemed

68
00:05:40,800 --> 00:05:46,450
significant by the Bank of England. But even
that number is more than two percent higher

69
00:05:46,450 --> 00:05:47,880
than pre-recession levels.

70
00:05:47,880 --> 00:05:51,500
The creation of new jobs didn`t keep pace
with the numbers people entering the labor

71
00:05:51,500 --> 00:05:57,979
market, meaning that the rate of unemployment
actually rose from 7.1 percent to 7.2.

72
00:05:57,979 --> 00:06:02,820
The last two employment reports out of the
U.S. were big disappointments. December showed

73
00:06:02,820 --> 00:06:10,280
only a gain of 75,000 jobs. January only showed
a gain of 113,000 jobs. But analysts are cautioning

74
00:06:10,280 --> 00:06:15,198
not to read too much into these week numbers,
because it`s believed that the severe weather

75
00:06:15,199 --> 00:06:20,490
across the U.S. really kept people from job
hunting and kept the employers from hiring.

76
00:06:20,490 --> 00:06:25,990
And don`t be surprised to see February`s numbers
impacted as well, as the Eastern part of the

77
00:06:25,990 --> 00:06:28,599
country was pounded by snow and ice.

78
00:06:28,599 --> 00:06:35,289
Time for the "Shootout." What U.S. city is
known as the city of brotherly love? If you

79
00:06:35,289 --> 00:06:39,889
think you know it, shout it out! Is it Nashville,
Tennessee, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Flagstaff,

80
00:06:39,889 --> 00:06:42,979
Arizona, or Loveland, Ohio? You`ve got three
seconds, go!

81
00:06:42,979 --> 00:06:51,669
William Penn called Philadelphia the city
of brotherly love in hopes that it would be

82
00:06:51,670 --> 00:07:04,669
a healthy and wholesome place. That`s your
answer and that`s your shoutout.

83
00:07:04,669 --> 00:07:09,719
People who know Kevin Grow say he has those
Philadelphia ideals. He`s an 18-year old student

84
00:07:09,720 --> 00:07:14,849
at Bensalem High School. He recently signed
a contract with the Philadelphia 76ers. It`s

85
00:07:14,849 --> 00:07:20,479
a two day agreement, not two years. Two day.
But we have a feeling the thrill is going

86
00:07:20,479 --> 00:07:26,500
to last a lot longer for the NBA team, for
Kevin and for his growing number of fans.

87
00:07:26,500 --> 00:07:31,569
Bensalem High School. Number 33 ....

88
00:07:31,569 --> 00:07:33,590
Kevin Grow!

89
00:07:33,590 --> 00:07:41,998
Meet the new breakout star of the Philadelphia
76ers. Already, a fan favorite and the center

90
00:07:41,999 --> 00:07:43,440
of the team huddle.

91
00:07:43,440 --> 00:07:45,200
His name is Kevin Grow.

92
00:07:45,200 --> 00:07:51,469
Before he was a free agent, the 18- year old
with Down syndrome was already a star player.

93
00:07:51,469 --> 00:07:56,289
For four years, Kevin was the manager of the
Bensalem High School basketball team. With

94
00:07:56,289 --> 00:08:01,300
two minutes remaining in the final game of
the season, Kevin`s coach took him off the

95
00:08:01,300 --> 00:08:06,311
bench and put him in the game. He scored four
three pointers, knocking in this ...

96
00:08:06,311 --> 00:08:13,830
After the play went viral, it was only a matter
of time before the pros came calling. The

97
00:08:13,830 --> 00:08:19,250
(inaudible) signed Kevin to a ceremonial two-day
contract with the team.

98
00:08:19,250 --> 00:08:20,250
Congratulations!

99
00:08:20,250 --> 00:08:22,729
You two!
I know you can - but you can play defense,

100
00:08:22,729 --> 00:08:23,729
too?

101
00:08:23,729 --> 00:08:24,729
Yeah.

102
00:08:24,729 --> 00:08:25,729
I say we give him a three-day time ...

103
00:08:25,729 --> 00:08:31,729
Kevin hit the court for team practice sporting
his new custom jersey, scouring extra points

104
00:08:31,729 --> 00:08:41,20
with fans and family. The
joy and love that he brings is just incredible.

105
00:08:41,20 --> 00:08:47,180
We`re going to settle up and head out west
for today`s "Roll Call". We`ll start with

106
00:08:47,180 --> 00:08:53,21
the Hawks, they are perched in Volcano Vista
High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Moving

107
00:08:53,21 --> 00:08:59,000
up to Spring Creek, Nevada. This is Spartans
country, Spring Creek High School. And springing

108
00:08:59,000 --> 00:09:04,40
over the Rock Spring, that`s in Wyoming. It`s
also where the tigers watching are Rock Springs

109
00:09:04,40 --> 00:09:05,209
High School.

110
00:09:05,210 --> 00:09:11,660
One of my favorite Winter Olympic events is
the snowboard cross. The cameras all over

111
00:09:11,660 --> 00:09:16,560
the course give you great views of what`s
going on. But what does it look like for the

112
00:09:16,560 --> 00:09:22,99
riders? We now know, thanks to British Olympian
Zoe Gillings. She wore a helmet cam while

113
00:09:22,100 --> 00:09:27,281
she was training for the games, and now we
can see what top competitors see as they ride

114
00:09:27,281 --> 00:09:33,160
camboard (ph) turns, jumps, drops and eventually
pass their competition. It`s an event with

115
00:09:33,160 --> 00:09:38,530
plenty of snowboarders, but absolutely snoboardom.
We`re grateful that Gillings wore the camera

116
00:09:38,530 --> 00:09:43,670
Sochi could show us what it was like. Though
riding at that level would be an Olympic achievement.

117
00:09:43,670 --> 00:09:59,979
We`ve got to go right now, but we`ll be right
back tomorrow on CNN STUDENT NEWS.
