1
00:00:11,790 --> 00:00:16,980
Happy to have you watching CNN STUDENT NEWS
this Wednesday, the 30th and last day of November.

2
00:00:16,980 --> 00:00:18,510
I`m Carl Azuz.

3
00:00:18,510 --> 00:00:23,670
First up, a tragic accident in the South American
country of Colombia. A plane crashed in the

4
00:00:23,670 --> 00:00:26,800
mountainous region Monday night while traveling
from

5
00:00:26,800 --> 00:00:33,400
Bolivia to Colombia. It was carrying 77 people,
including a Brazilian soccer team. And of

6
00:00:33,400 --> 00:00:37,199
those 77 onboard, at least 71 were killed
in the

7
00:00:37,200 --> 00:00:39,820
crash. Some people did survive.

8
00:00:39,820 --> 00:00:45,20
No one knows yet why the plane went down.
A CNN meteorologist says there had been rain

9
00:00:45,20 --> 00:00:48,360
showers and thunderstorms in the area and
that probably would

10
00:00:48,360 --> 00:00:53,260
have made flying conditions turbulent. Continuing
bad weather kept the Colombian air force from

11
00:00:53,260 --> 00:00:55,519
getting to the crash site, so officials had
to

12
00:00:55,520 --> 00:00:57,620
travel there by land.

13
00:00:57,620 --> 00:01:01,209
People throughout Brazil are in mourning.
The soccer team had been scheduled to play

14
00:01:01,210 --> 00:01:03,930
a Colombian team in the first league of the
South

15
00:01:03,930 --> 00:01:06,830
American Cup finals today.

16
00:01:06,830 --> 00:01:11,220
Sevier County is in eastern Tennessee, in
the Great Smokey Mountains. It`s part a region

17
00:01:11,220 --> 00:01:14,990
that`s suffering with its worst drought in
almost 10 years.

18
00:01:14,990 --> 00:01:19,869
The dried conditions have been fueled for
wildfires. Without much warning, flames jumped

19
00:01:19,870 --> 00:01:23,50
toward the resort towns of Gatlinburg and
Pigeon Forge Monday

20
00:01:23,50 --> 00:01:26,840
night. At least three people in Sevier County
died in the fires.

21
00:01:26,840 --> 00:01:31,81
But rescue officials haven`t been able to
get to all of the affected areas. The smoke

22
00:01:31,81 --> 00:01:34,590
is thick. The fire is unpredictable. They
say the worst

23
00:01:34,590 --> 00:01:39,750
appeared to be over Tuesday morning. Thought
some major tourist attractions like Dollywood

24
00:01:39,750 --> 00:01:41,940
and Parrot Mountain and Gardens appear to
be

25
00:01:41,940 --> 00:01:47,9
okay. Hundreds of buildings around the area
were damaged or destroyed.

26
00:01:47,10 --> 00:01:51,300
People were ordered to evacuate, but some
were surrounded by fire and had nowhere to

27
00:01:51,300 --> 00:01:52,300
go.

28
00:01:52,300 --> 00:01:57,390
Unfortunately, we saw few people here earlier
today that were rushing out to go try to find

29
00:01:57,390 --> 00:01:58,580
their pet, because

30
00:01:58,580 --> 00:02:00,479
the flames were just encircling them.

31
00:02:00,479 --> 00:02:05,580
One man had to get in his car, he put the
pedal to the metal and he said he drove short

32
00:02:05,580 --> 00:02:07,780
through the flames to get out because they
were completely

33
00:02:07,780 --> 00:02:14,900
surrounding him. Some of the firefighters
this morning were saying that because of the

34
00:02:14,900 --> 00:02:17,720
wind, it was knocking the trees down, which
was knocking the

35
00:02:17,720 --> 00:02:24,49
power lines down and that was sparking more
fires. And so, it just created this domino

36
00:02:24,49 --> 00:02:27,739
effect that we couldn`t get ahead of last
night in Gatlinburg

37
00:02:27,739 --> 00:02:33,110
and it`s still unknown how many structures
are damaged, how many of those beautiful historic

38
00:02:33,110 --> 00:02:35,299
structures are damaged.

39
00:02:35,299 --> 00:02:42,150
People`s biggest fear and rumors and what
we hear is that it could be hundreds of structures.

40
00:02:42,150 --> 00:02:45,139
And so people here are just waiting to hear
what

41
00:02:45,139 --> 00:02:50,319
to do next. They don`t know if their neighbors
are okay. They have a lot of fear. They just

42
00:02:50,319 --> 00:02:52,339
have the clothes on their back, and they`re
waiting to

43
00:02:52,340 --> 00:02:56,769
hear what to do next. It`s an incredibly stressful
time.

44
00:02:56,769 --> 00:03:01,120
Law enforcement investigators looking into
Monday`s attack at Ohio State University now

45
00:03:01,120 --> 00:03:04,680
believe the attacker was inspired by terrorists.

46
00:03:04,680 --> 00:03:11,279
Abdul Razak Ali Artan wounded 11 people with
a car and a knife before an OSU police officer

47
00:03:11,279 --> 00:03:14,230
shot and killed him. Yesterday, officials
said Facebook

48
00:03:14,230 --> 00:03:19,879
postings that Artan made before the attack
referenced ISIS terrorist propaganda and a

49
00:03:19,879 --> 00:03:23,309
Yemeni-American Muslim cleric who worked for
the al Qaeda

50
00:03:23,309 --> 00:03:27,790
terrorist group before being killed in the
U.S. airstrike. What officials don`t know

51
00:03:27,790 --> 00:03:31,230
is if Artan actually communicated before the
terrorist group

52
00:03:31,230 --> 00:03:33,129
before the attack.

53
00:03:33,129 --> 00:03:38,40
Hundreds of workers at Chicago O`Hare International,
one of America`s busiest airports, went on

54
00:03:38,40 --> 00:03:40,409
strike yesterday. They were joined across
the

55
00:03:40,409 --> 00:03:46,269
country by Uber drivers, fast food workers,
graduate assistants, home care assistants

56
00:03:46,269 --> 00:03:50,90
who were participating in what was called
Disruption Tuesday.

57
00:03:50,90 --> 00:03:56,280
This event was organized by a group named
Fight for 15, as in $15 per hour. That`s what

58
00:03:56,280 --> 00:03:59,440
the group wants the U.S. federal minimum wage
to be.

59
00:03:59,440 --> 00:04:05,430
Currently, that wage is $7.25 per hour, though
some states and cities have set higher minimum

60
00:04:05,430 --> 00:04:06,999
wages of their own.

61
00:04:06,999 --> 00:04:11,870
Travel wasn`t significantly disrupted at Chicago
O`Hare. A union spokeswoman said that wasn`t

62
00:04:11,870 --> 00:04:14,159
the workers` goal and the airlines knew the

63
00:04:14,159 --> 00:04:16,870
strike was coming and made plans in advance.

64
00:04:16,870 --> 00:04:21,220
What striking workers there and in other parts
of the U.S. wanted was to raise awareness

65
00:04:21,220 --> 00:04:24,389
about their cost. The Fight for 15 group says
without a

66
00:04:24,389 --> 00:04:30,700
$15 an hour minimum wage and union rights,
workers who make less struggled to feed their

67
00:04:30,700 --> 00:04:34,99
families and pay their bills. There were arrests
in several

68
00:04:34,100 --> 00:04:37,870
U.S. cities where strikers blocked streets
and refused to leave.

69
00:04:37,870 --> 00:04:42,570
Critics of the Fight for 15 goals say the
higher minimum wage would force businesses

70
00:04:42,570 --> 00:04:45,650
to reduce the number of people they employ
in order to pay

71
00:04:45,650 --> 00:04:50,820
others the increase wages. They also say companies
might eliminate benefits like health care

72
00:04:50,820 --> 00:04:52,590
to cover the increased wages.

73
00:04:52,590 --> 00:04:57,469
The U.S. depends on space more than any other
country. And yesterday, we showed you some

74
00:04:57,470 --> 00:05:01,230
ways how through technology like GPS, and
we discussed how

75
00:05:01,230 --> 00:05:06,780
an attack on that technology could be the
next frontier in international warfare. But

76
00:05:06,780 --> 00:05:09,929
the U.S. mission in orbit isn`t just to monitor
and defend.

77
00:05:09,930 --> 00:05:19,160
It`s working on weapons that could strike
back against any empire`s orbital aggression.

78
00:05:19,160 --> 00:05:27,70
In the Persian Gulf, an instantaneous burst
of energy destroys targets --

79
00:05:27,70 --> 00:05:34,909
first on the surface, then in the air. It`s
deadly firepower moving, literally, at the

80
00:05:34,910 --> 00:05:40,570
speed of light. Obliterating its target, the
Navy says,

81
00:05:40,570 --> 00:05:44,430
like a long-distance blowtorch.

82
00:05:44,430 --> 00:05:51,740
This is the US military`s first operational
laser weapon, and today, it is deployed to

83
00:05:51,740 --> 00:05:56,210
defeat incoming threats at sea. Could it someday
be used for

84
00:05:56,210 --> 00:05:58,870
targets in space?

85
00:05:58,870 --> 00:06:01,10
Firing lasers in space?

86
00:06:01,10 --> 00:06:03,670
Potentially.
Yes, it`s remarkable

87
00:06:03,670 --> 00:06:06,800
When you get into this, you get into sorts
of other classification levels that I`m not

88
00:06:06,800 --> 00:06:08,960
cleared into.

89
00:06:08,960 --> 00:06:15,609
This would require a major strategic shift
for the U.S., deploying weapons for use in

90
00:06:15,610 --> 00:06:20,420
space. And so many took notice when in

91
00:06:20,420 --> 00:06:26,910
April this year Deputy Defense Secretary Bob
Work vowed that the U.S. will strike back

92
00:06:26,910 --> 00:06:31,90
if attacked in space. Strike back, he added,
and knock them

93
00:06:31,90 --> 00:06:32,90
out.

94
00:06:32,90 --> 00:06:35,580
From the very beginning, if someone starts
going after our space constellation, we`re

95
00:06:35,580 --> 00:06:36,580
going to go after the

96
00:06:36,580 --> 00:06:39,450
capabilities that would prevent them from
doing that.

97
00:06:39,450 --> 00:06:44,800
That sounds like an offensive response to
an offensive weapon. If shot, you will shoot

98
00:06:44,800 --> 00:06:45,800
back?

99
00:06:45,800 --> 00:06:49,300
WORK: Well, let me just say that having the
capability to shoot the torpedo would be a

100
00:06:49,300 --> 00:06:52,200
good thing to have in our quiver.

101
00:06:52,200 --> 00:06:56,800
When we started this project, I thought of
this stuff as being conceptual. This is something

102
00:06:56,800 --> 00:06:58,460
they`re thinking about doing, preparing for

103
00:06:58,460 --> 00:07:03,150
the future. But the fact is, it`s happening
right now. There are already lasers that have

104
00:07:03,150 --> 00:07:06,770
targeted satellites in space to blind them,
dazzle them,

105
00:07:06,770 --> 00:07:07,770
put them out of commission.

106
00:07:07,770 --> 00:07:12,299
Now, that`s a current threat, the possibility
of deploying lasers in space. But there are

107
00:07:12,300 --> 00:07:15,80
other weapons or things that the U.S. is concerned
are

108
00:07:15,80 --> 00:07:20,650
weapons that are already up there. Russia
has launched a satellite that stalks U.S.

109
00:07:20,650 --> 00:07:23,310
communication satellites, circles them. The
concern being, it

110
00:07:23,310 --> 00:07:26,270
could ram into them or disable them in another
way.

111
00:07:26,270 --> 00:07:31,510
China has launched a satellite that has a
grappling arm on it, robotic arm that can

112
00:07:31,510 --> 00:07:34,380
grab satellites out of orbit. Of course, China
says, well, that`s

113
00:07:34,380 --> 00:07:39,20
for maintenance. The U.S. concern is that
that could steal a satellite out of orbit,

114
00:07:39,20 --> 00:07:42,109
a key U.S. satellite, whether it`s a spy satellite
or GPS

115
00:07:42,110 --> 00:07:47,280
satellites. This is the world we`re living
in today, not in some sort of distant science

116
00:07:47,280 --> 00:07:50,760
fiction future.

117
00:07:50,760 --> 00:07:58,90
"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom
of nights stays these couriers from the swift

118
00:07:58,90 --> 00:08:00,590
completion of their appointed rounds." That

119
00:08:00,590 --> 00:08:05,299
sentence has long been associated with the
U.S. Postal Service. And especially in winter

120
00:08:05,300 --> 00:08:07,270
weather, it`s comforting to think that nothing
will

121
00:08:07,270 --> 00:08:12,539
keep the USPS from delivering mail or reindeer
from delivering pizza.

122
00:08:12,540 --> 00:08:20,440
Who needs reindeer to deliver presents when
they can deliver pizza?

123
00:08:20,440 --> 00:08:26,830
Domino`s in Japan says its training reindeer
at a driving school to deliver pizza in one

124
00:08:26,830 --> 00:08:29,950
of Japan`s coldest, snowiest regions.

125
00:08:29,950 --> 00:08:36,419
If a reindeer runs properly, it can go as
fast as 80 kilometers per hour. It`s especially

126
00:08:36,419 --> 00:08:37,458
fast on snow as

127
00:08:37,458 --> 00:08:39,149
though it`s equipped with snowshoes.

128
00:08:39,149 --> 00:08:46,59
MOOS: The trainers seem to be having trouble
reining in their pizza delivery reindeer which

129
00:08:46,59 --> 00:08:49,439
would be equipped with GPS devices so customers
can

130
00:08:49,440 --> 00:08:51,550
check on their progress.

131
00:08:51,550 --> 00:08:55,959
So how do you say publicity stunt in Japanese?

132
00:08:55,959 --> 00:08:58,180
Publicity stunt. (SPEAKING JAPANESE)

133
00:08:58,180 --> 00:09:04,709
Domino`s is no stranger to marketing ploys.
Take the edible box Domino`s U.K. dreamed

134
00:09:04,709 --> 00:09:07,219
up for April Fool`s.

135
00:09:07,220 --> 00:09:14,629
Just last month, Domino`s in New Zealand demonstrated
the pizza delivery drone. It flew to the appointed

136
00:09:14,629 --> 00:09:17,280
address and lowered a pizza. Company

137
00:09:17,280 --> 00:09:22,279
officials in New Zealand say that in the next
couple of years, drones could make up 25 percent

138
00:09:22,279 --> 00:09:24,300
of deliveries.

139
00:09:24,300 --> 00:09:28,389
If it`s right outside, you can call that a
reindeer-livery. Assuming they`re cooking

140
00:09:28,389 --> 00:09:30,930
more than a pizza publicity, though, is this
is

141
00:09:30,930 --> 00:09:34,839
the antler? Seeing a reindeer on the front
porch might slay some people, but if that

142
00:09:34,839 --> 00:09:38,499
pizza is cold or late, no one`s going to caribout
the animal.

143
00:09:38,499 --> 00:09:58,450
I`m Carl Azuz delivering great puns for CNN
