1
00:00:11,330 --> 00:00:15,420
Happy Valentine`s Day, everyone. I`m Carl
Azuz. Welcome to another lovely edition of

2
00:00:15,420 --> 00:00:21,60
CNN STUDENT NEWS. One thing that isn`t lovely
as far as many Americans are concerned, the

3
00:00:21,60 --> 00:00:26,740
weather. From North Carolina to Boston, another
winter storm is frosting the East Coast, possibly

4
00:00:26,740 --> 00:00:32,369
the worst the northeast has seen this winter.
Ice, sleet, snow, freezing rain, all making

5
00:00:32,369 --> 00:00:37,470
it nearly impossible in some places to go
anywhere. And staying home wasn`t great either

6
00:00:37,470 --> 00:00:43,480
for more than 700,000 power customers in the
dark. New Yorkers were looking at 15 inches

7
00:00:43,480 --> 00:00:47,860
of snow and that`s just a snapshot of the
eastern seaboard.

8
00:00:47,860 --> 00:00:52,589
Right now, Mother Nature is serving up tragedy
and misery. There are ten confirmed deaths

9
00:00:52,589 --> 00:00:58,229
due to the storm. Obviously, amid this tragedy,
there also problems and pain, but some people

10
00:00:58,229 --> 00:01:02,70
are able to find simple pleasures in so much
wicked weather.

11
00:01:02,70 --> 00:01:07,909
A snowball fight in front of the Lincoln Memorial
shows the lighter side of the storm, but government

12
00:01:07,909 --> 00:01:15,100
agencies are taking the snow seriously. Forecasters
expect up to ten inches of snow in the nation`s

13
00:01:15,100 --> 00:01:20,250
capital. Officials have ordered all federal
offices closed. The plows were out on force

14
00:01:20,250 --> 00:01:25,321
Wednesday in Raleigh, North Carolina, but
for a lot of stranded drivers, it didn`t do

15
00:01:25,321 --> 00:01:31,170
much good. Officials in the southeast urge
people to stay home if they could as the road

16
00:01:31,170 --> 00:01:36,330
conditions got progressively worse. Even first
responders who are having a hard time getting

17
00:01:36,330 --> 00:01:42,720
around slipping and sliding as they try to
get their vehicles moving again.

18
00:01:42,720 --> 00:01:47,420
As if ice on roads wasn`t bad enough, the
weight of ice and snow brought trees down

19
00:01:47,420 --> 00:01:51,840
into power lines and in some cases, into homes.

20
00:01:51,840 --> 00:01:59,170
This "Roll Call" is going to the dogs, because
Valentine`s Day is all about puppy love.

21
00:01:59,170 --> 00:02:03,700
At Harrisburg High School in Harrisburg, Missouri,
we`ve got the bull dogs. Thanks for watching,

22
00:02:03,700 --> 00:02:04,700
yo.

23
00:02:04,700 --> 00:02:08,769
Up to Chicago, Illinois, it`s where we find
the Uno Soccer Academy High School and the

24
00:02:08,769 --> 00:02:15,190
fearsome wolves. And in Williston, North Dakota,
some coyotes are watching CNN STUDENT NEWS.

25
00:02:15,190 --> 00:02:17,170
Howlo to Williston High School.

26
00:02:17,170 --> 00:02:22,940
All right, big business is making big headlines
this week. Cable and Internet provider Comcast

27
00:02:22,940 --> 00:02:29,340
is planning to buy Time Warner Cable for $45
billion. This would combine the two biggest

28
00:02:29,340 --> 00:02:34,940
cable companies in the U.S. And give Comcast
$30 million customers. The U.S. government

29
00:02:34,940 --> 00:02:39,410
must first approve the deal, and it may not,
if it thinks it would give the new company

30
00:02:39,410 --> 00:02:44,310
too much control over the market. Both Comcast
and Time Warner Cable say this is good news

31
00:02:44,310 --> 00:02:49,530
for customers, that the merger will mean higher
broadband Internet speeds, faster Wi-Fi in

32
00:02:49,530 --> 00:02:54,340
people`s homes, faster releases of new products.
But critics are concerned it would limit people`s

33
00:02:54,340 --> 00:02:59,410
choices and lead to higher prices. And last
year, a consumer satisfaction index ranked

34
00:02:59,410 --> 00:03:04,880
the companies lowest in the nation for TV
and Internet customer service.

35
00:03:04,880 --> 00:03:10,170
Can you sue the president? The answer is yes.
Presidents Kennedy, Nixon, Clinton, George

36
00:03:10,170 --> 00:03:15,399
W. Bush and Barack Obama have all been sued.
The outcomes vary, of course, but it shows

37
00:03:15,400 --> 00:03:20,349
you that even the leader of the country is
not immune to lawsuits. The latest one involving

38
00:03:20,349 --> 00:03:25,549
President Obama has been brought by Republican
Senator Rand Paul. He says the president and

39
00:03:25,550 --> 00:03:30,570
other parts of the U.S. government violated
Americans privacy rights by collecting millions

40
00:03:30,570 --> 00:03:35,299
of Americans phone and email records. The
government says its controversial program

41
00:03:35,300 --> 00:03:40,170
has helped to prevent terrorism. What the
courts will say is uncertain.

42
00:03:40,170 --> 00:03:45,140
Senator Rand Paul`s lawsuit joined by the
Tea Party umbrella group FreedomWorks is the

43
00:03:45,140 --> 00:03:50,279
latest legal effort to put the heat on President
Obama and the National Security Agency over

44
00:03:50,280 --> 00:03:56,60
collection of telephone metadata, the numbers,
dates and times of calls, but not the content.

45
00:03:56,60 --> 00:04:01,440
This we believe will be a historic lawsuit.
We think it may well be the largest class

46
00:04:01,440 --> 00:04:06,709
action lawsuit every filed on behalf of the
Bill of Rights.

47
00:04:06,709 --> 00:04:11,660
An unusual lawsuit that Paul hopes will gain
public support, it goes after the president

48
00:04:11,660 --> 00:04:17,159
and the director of National Intelligence,
of the NSA and the FBI, on behalf of millions

49
00:04:17,160 --> 00:04:22,370
who have been customers, users and subscribers
of phone service since 2006.

50
00:04:22,370 --> 00:04:27,000
Paul wants the federal courts to declare the
metadata collection program unconstitutional,

51
00:04:27,000 --> 00:04:31,670
shut it down and order the government to approach
(ph) the information from its systems. But

52
00:04:31,670 --> 00:04:34,249
the administration insists the program is
legal.

53
00:04:34,249 --> 00:04:39,990
It has been found to be lawful by multiple
courts. And it receives oversight from all

54
00:04:39,990 --> 00:04:43,319
three branches of government including the
Congress.

55
00:04:43,319 --> 00:04:44,620
Is the lawsuit a good idea?

56
00:04:44,620 --> 00:04:47,639
Our information, I think it should be private.

57
00:04:47,639 --> 00:04:51,520
The idea that anybody could be listening to
my private life. That kind of, you know, it`s

58
00:04:51,520 --> 00:04:52,520
a little bit creepy.

59
00:04:52,520 --> 00:04:55,948
I think it`s just kind of a stunt to get attention.
I doubt anything (INAUDIBLE) should go over

60
00:04:55,949 --> 00:04:57,599
to the lawsuit.

61
00:04:57,599 --> 00:05:02,10
There were already cases in the federal courts
involving the same legal questions: whether

62
00:05:02,10 --> 00:05:05,39
the program violates your constitutional right.

63
00:05:05,39 --> 00:05:09,449
There is no question that the underlying legal
question is going to have to be resolved by

64
00:05:09,449 --> 00:05:13,830
the federal courts sometimes soon. It just
doesn`t seem like Senator Paul suit is going

65
00:05:13,830 --> 00:05:17,800
to be the vehicle, through which the courts
do it.

66
00:05:17,800 --> 00:05:22,710
Time for "The Shoutout." Acrophobia is the
fear of what? If you think you know it, shout

67
00:05:22,710 --> 00:05:32,859
it out! Is it ice, spiders, dancing or heights?
You`ve got three seconds, go!

68
00:05:32,860 --> 00:05:37,960
If you dread heights, you might just be acrophobic
and you wouldn`t want the job we`re about

69
00:05:37,960 --> 00:05:42,318
to describe. That`s your answer and that`s
your shoutout.

70
00:05:42,319 --> 00:05:48,150
And that`s because it`s at the world`s tallest
building. Not near the bottom of it, not indoors.

71
00:05:48,150 --> 00:05:55,49
The Burj Khalifa stands more than half a mile
high. It`s located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates,

72
00:05:55,50 --> 00:06:00,100
a place that`s no stranger to sand storms.
How do they keep it clean?

73
00:06:00,100 --> 00:06:06,340
When they built the world`s tallest building,
Dubai`s Burj Khalifa, it was covered in 24,000

74
00:06:06,340 --> 00:06:12,318
separate panels of glass. Dipak Ghal`s job
is keeping them clean.

75
00:06:12,319 --> 00:06:19,349
"The work is interesting, and the view is
beautiful," he tells me. Dipak is one of around

76
00:06:19,349 --> 00:06:24,779
60 migrant workers, mostly from Nepal, India
and the Philippines who clean windows here.

77
00:06:24,779 --> 00:06:30,960
And in this dusty desert climate, there is
plenty of work for them.

78
00:06:30,960 --> 00:06:33,739
They start at the very tip top.

79
00:06:33,740 --> 00:06:40,229
We`re standing on the 159th floor of the Burj
Khalifa. That`s about 35 stories higher than

80
00:06:40,229 --> 00:06:44,740
most tourists get to go. It doesn`t sound
that high, perhaps. But if you come over here,

81
00:06:44,740 --> 00:06:48,119
take a look over the edge, I think you might
change your mind.

82
00:06:48,119 --> 00:06:55,990
It`s more than 2700 feet, or nearly a kilometer
straight down, certainly not a job for the

83
00:06:55,990 --> 00:06:59,449
faint of heart, especially when you`re repelling.

84
00:06:59,449 --> 00:07:04,50
Dipak had never seen a building even half
this height before, let alone climbed one.

85
00:07:04,50 --> 00:07:08,529
But his brother said he should leave Katmandu
and give it a try. Safety comes first. And

86
00:07:08,529 --> 00:07:13,900
while they trust their equipment, harnesses
and ropes are checked and double checked.

87
00:07:13,900 --> 00:07:19,810
Wind speed is also measured. Because up here,
one big gust could be dangerous.

88
00:07:19,810 --> 00:07:25,379
"The wind can toss you around the building,
from right to left, "He says. "If it`s too

89
00:07:25,379 --> 00:07:28,779
strong, we don`t work that day."

90
00:07:28,779 --> 00:07:35,539
When the inspections are done, they step out
over the edge and deep down to business.

91
00:07:35,539 --> 00:07:42,530
It will take those three months to clean each
and every window and then they start all over

92
00:07:42,530 --> 00:07:47,599
again. The building`s contractor, though,
says, rope access is still the most efficient

93
00:07:47,599 --> 00:07:54,9
way to get the job done. For Dipak, it`s also
a decent living. As a new recruit, he can

94
00:07:54,9 --> 00:08:00,889
make over $600 a month, much more than he`d
earned as a construction worker building skyscrapers

95
00:08:00,889 --> 00:08:02,379
like this one.

96
00:08:02,379 --> 00:08:07,800
"My mom always asks me why I do this. And
says it looks dangerous," he tells me. She

97
00:08:07,800 --> 00:08:12,759
wants me to come back to Nepal and get a regular
job, but I tell them no, no, no. I like it.

98
00:08:12,759 --> 00:08:15,379
And this is a good living.

99
00:08:15,379 --> 00:08:18,800
And he says, just another day at the office.

100
00:08:18,800 --> 00:08:24,159
Jon Jensen, CNN, Dubai.

101
00:08:24,159 --> 00:08:30,629
Americans are expected to spend $17.3 billion
on Valentine`s Day stuff. That`s over 55 bucks

102
00:08:30,629 --> 00:08:36,570
for every person in the country. Chocolate
boxes, a popular gift, date back to the 1860s.

103
00:08:36,570 --> 00:08:41,740
But few things are sweeter than the long awaited
and well deserved homecoming of U.S. troops.

104
00:08:41,740 --> 00:08:44,470
No, it`s not only me. It`s them that made
that sacrifice.

105
00:08:44,470 --> 00:08:46,200
I want my mom to come home .

106
00:08:46,200 --> 00:08:50,190
So, this is (inaudible). He`ll meet Dad for
the first time.

107
00:08:50,190 --> 00:08:58,900
I don`t try to pull it off. They think I`m
coming home in about three weeks.

108
00:08:58,900 --> 00:09:04,100
I really just want to make - make them feel
better about it, you know, and hopefully this

109
00:09:04,100 --> 00:09:05,100
.

110
00:09:05,100 --> 00:09:06,100
And I can`t even explain.

111
00:09:06,100 --> 00:09:07,100
Hi, mom.

112
00:09:07,100 --> 00:09:13,230
The absolute joy.

113
00:09:13,230 --> 00:09:19,790
I`m daddy.

114
00:09:19,790 --> 00:09:26,349
Mom!
Daddy!

115
00:09:26,350 --> 00:09:36,190
Welcome back home.

116
00:09:36,190 --> 00:09:43,721
It`s tough to beat something so heartfelt.
Whether or not you love Valentine`s Day, we

117
00:09:43,721 --> 00:09:48,370
hope you have one sweet weekend with chocalot
of fan. We will be off Monday for the President`s

118
00:09:48,370 --> 00:09:52,810
Day holiday. So we`ll look forward to seeing
you again on Tuesday. I`m Carl Azuz.
