1
00:00:01,430 --> 00:00:14,270
It`s Friday the 13th and still awesome.

2
00:00:14,270 --> 00:00:16,500
I`m Carl Azuz with CNN STUDENT NEWS.

3
00:00:16,500 --> 00:00:21,390
In the eastern Missouri city of Ferguson,
police say two officers guarding a police

4
00:00:21,390 --> 00:00:24,890
station were ambushed and shot on Tuesday.
They both

5
00:00:24,890 --> 00:00:30,480
survived, but this is just the latest round
of violence in a tense suburb in America.

6
00:00:30,480 --> 00:00:35,300
It started last August, when a white police
officer named Darren Wilson shot and killed

7
00:00:35,300 --> 00:00:38,529
an unarmed 18-year-old named Michael Brown.

8
00:00:38,530 --> 00:00:43,820
Large protests followed, with demonstrators
saying racism factored into the shooting and

9
00:00:43,820 --> 00:00:46,210
the investigation. Some protests were violent.

10
00:00:46,210 --> 00:00:51,180
A grand jury later cleared Officer Wilson
of any wrongdoing. That led to another wave

11
00:00:51,180 --> 00:00:54,290
of protests. Parts of the city were damaged
or burned.

12
00:00:54,290 --> 00:00:59,860
The U.S. Justice Department also investigated
Brown`s shooting. It said Officer Wilson did

13
00:00:59,860 --> 00:01:02,809
not break federal civil rights law in a way
that

14
00:01:02,809 --> 00:01:05,710
could be prosecuted. It didn`t charge him.

15
00:01:05,710 --> 00:01:10,860
But it did release a report that said it found
regular racial discrimination in Ferguson,

16
00:01:10,860 --> 00:01:14,200
both by police and the city`s court system.

17
00:01:14,200 --> 00:01:18,840
Earlier this week, Ferguson`s police chief
resigned. The shooting of the two officers

18
00:01:18,840 --> 00:01:22,70
happened at the end of a protest. Afterward,
everyone

19
00:01:22,70 --> 00:01:27,369
from the police to Michael Brown`s parents
to U.S. government officials spoke out against

20
00:01:27,369 --> 00:01:30,20
the shooting. Authorities launched a manhunt
for the

21
00:01:30,20 --> 00:01:31,689
attackers.

22
00:01:31,689 --> 00:01:36,750
Israel is gearing up for national elections.
They`re set to take place next Tuesday. The

23
00:01:36,750 --> 00:01:39,300
country is a parliamentary democracy. Voters

24
00:01:39,300 --> 00:01:43,649
choose members of parliament. The parliament
then selects the prime minister, who leads

25
00:01:43,650 --> 00:01:44,870
the country.

26
00:01:44,870 --> 00:01:49,299
Israel is a close U.S. ally in the Middle
East, so leaders around the world are keeping

27
00:01:49,299 --> 00:01:52,189
track of this upcoming vote.

28
00:01:52,189 --> 00:01:57,110
Less than a week before the election, Benjamin
Netanyahu is on the ropes. The latest polls

29
00:01:57,110 --> 00:01:58,110
show

30
00:01:58,110 --> 00:02:04,960
the prime minister running behind a little
known mild-mannered politician. Now, the prospect

31
00:02:04,960 --> 00:02:08,978
of a major upset at the hands of Isaac Herzog,
known as

32
00:02:08,979 --> 00:02:10,110
Bougie.

33
00:02:10,110 --> 00:02:18,620
There`s fatigue. There`s a lot of disappointment
by Benjamin -- from Benjamin Netanyahu. I

34
00:02:18,620 --> 00:02:22,950
think his era is over.
Focused more on his current job, Netanyahu

35
00:02:22,950 --> 00:02:28,429
has done little grand-handing, but has been
quick to blame, today pointing to a, quote,

36
00:02:28,430 --> 00:02:30,840
"worldwide effort to unseat him."

37
00:02:30,840 --> 00:02:35,749
Campaign officials say money from around the
world, much of it from the U.S., is funding

38
00:02:35,749 --> 00:02:39,120
a grassroots get out the vote drive, called
V15 with

39
00:02:39,120 --> 00:02:42,469
one goal -- get rid of Bebe.

40
00:02:42,469 --> 00:02:47,689
After six years, Netanyahu`s relentless focus
on security seems to be falling flat among

41
00:02:47,689 --> 00:02:50,739
many Israelis, who want a leader to not only
keep them

42
00:02:50,739 --> 00:02:55,709
safe, but deal with rising food and housing
prices, health care and welfare reform.

43
00:02:55,709 --> 00:03:00,379
And the increasing inequalities within the
Israeli economy, the emergence and the widening

44
00:03:00,379 --> 00:03:01,379
of the gulf

45
00:03:01,379 --> 00:03:04,608
between the haves and the have-nots. There,
he`s vulnerable in these elections.

46
00:03:04,609 --> 00:03:09,260
Tens of thousands of people filled Rabin Square
in Tel Aviv this weekend to drive home that

47
00:03:09,260 --> 00:03:11,689
message at an anti-Netanyahu rally.

48
00:03:11,689 --> 00:03:18,239
In his final push before election day, the
prime minister has doubled down on his security

49
00:03:18,239 --> 00:03:21,489
platform, with a major speech to the U.S.
Congress on

50
00:03:21,489 --> 00:03:24,120
the threat Israel faces from Iran...

51
00:03:24,120 --> 00:03:31,470
I feel a profound obligation to speak to you
about an issue that could well threaten the

52
00:03:31,470 --> 00:03:34,949
survival of my country and the future of my
people.

53
00:03:34,949 --> 00:03:39,489
-- and hedging on his commitment to a peace
deal with the Palestinians leading to a two-state

54
00:03:39,489 --> 00:03:40,769
solution.

55
00:03:40,769 --> 00:03:46,499
Herzog says Netanyahu has an empty brand,
warning about growing tensions with the U.S.,

56
00:03:46,499 --> 00:03:50,180
Israel`s closest ally, under his leadership.

57
00:03:50,180 --> 00:03:55,59
I think that he failed. And I`m trying to
call his bluff on it.

58
00:03:55,59 --> 00:03:59,569
But the Netanyahu campaign thinks they have
the winning hand, with the Iranian nuclear

59
00:03:59,569 --> 00:04:01,159
threat and Islamic extremism

60
00:04:01,159 --> 00:04:05,388
engulfing the Middle East, aides say, at the
end of the day, when voters go to the polls,

61
00:04:05,389 --> 00:04:08,819
they really realize they feel safer with the
prime minister.

62
00:04:08,819 --> 00:04:11,659
And they hope that is their full house.

63
00:04:11,659 --> 00:04:14,909
Elise Labott, CNN, Jerusalem.

64
00:04:14,909 --> 00:04:16,880
Roll Call

65
00:04:16,880 --> 00:04:23,130
From Southeast Asia to Northeast America,
it`s time for the CNN STUDENT NEWS Roll Call.

66
00:04:23,130 --> 00:04:28,639
We`ll start in Ho Chi Minh City. It`s in Southern
Vietnam and it`s where The Schools of North

67
00:04:28,639 --> 00:04:30,350
America are watching.

68
00:04:30,350 --> 00:04:35,699
Stateside, Olathe is a city in Eastern Kansas.
It`s also the home of The Timberwolves, the

69
00:04:35,699 --> 00:04:38,550
mascot of Mission Trail Middle School.

70
00:04:38,550 --> 00:04:43,729
And Boonton is located in Northern New Jersey.
Great to see our viewers at Sage Day High

71
00:04:43,729 --> 00:04:46,580
School. It`s the home of The Arctic Fox.

72
00:04:46,580 --> 00:04:51,639
It was a major accomplishment for the European
Space Agency. Last November, after 10 years

73
00:04:51,639 --> 00:04:55,960
of traveling, an ESA vehicle landed on a comet.

74
00:04:55,960 --> 00:05:01,299
The vehicle is named Philea and it was the
first time ever that something built by humans

75
00:05:01,300 --> 00:05:03,789
made a soft landing on a comet.

76
00:05:03,789 --> 00:05:08,800
But it didn`t quite go as planned. Philea
was supposed to use harpoons and screws to

77
00:05:08,800 --> 00:05:12,580
secure itself in place. That didn`t happen.

78
00:05:12,580 --> 00:05:17,389
Scientists believe Philea bounced and wound
up in a shadow. Because it`s solar-powered,

79
00:05:17,389 --> 00:05:20,759
that`s a problem. Its batteries soon ran out,
putting the

80
00:05:20,759 --> 00:05:21,759
mission on hold.

81
00:05:21,759 --> 00:05:28,229
But there`s a ray of hope for the $233 million
lander.

82
00:05:28,229 --> 00:05:37,000
Who could forget this scene, scientists geeking
out over a spectacular landing. But then it

83
00:05:37,000 --> 00:05:38,50
bounced and

84
00:05:38,50 --> 00:05:40,000
now it`s dark.

85
00:05:40,000 --> 00:05:43,190
We have to be a bit patient right now.

86
00:05:43,190 --> 00:05:49,849
With a dead battery and no 310 million mile
long jumper cables available, scientists at

87
00:05:49,849 --> 00:05:51,688
Germany`s aerospace center have some

88
00:05:51,689 --> 00:05:53,110
time on their hands.

89
00:05:53,110 --> 00:05:58,340
Until the lander gets enough sunlight, the
comet is approaching the sun, so that we can

90
00:05:58,340 --> 00:06:00,188
reactivate it.

91
00:06:00,189 --> 00:06:04,939
While they wait for Philea`s ticker to tick
again, scientists are paying great attention

92
00:06:04,939 --> 00:06:06,749
to what the lander has already

93
00:06:06,749 --> 00:06:13,689
sniffed up. Comet 67P, as it`s known, dates
back to the early days of the solar system.

94
00:06:13,689 --> 00:06:17,30
All comets are believed to contain an abundance
of organic

95
00:06:17,30 --> 00:06:23,219
matter, which Philea has just begun to crack.
It`s already found a carbon element in those

96
00:06:23,219 --> 00:06:26,659
molecules that is the basis of life.

97
00:06:26,659 --> 00:06:33,188
Comet 67P and Philea are getting closer to
the sun. And scientists are hoping its rays

98
00:06:33,189 --> 00:06:37,120
will rekindle a dead battery and give new
life to this

99
00:06:37,120 --> 00:06:39,639
remarkable project.

100
00:06:39,639 --> 00:06:42,840
Character Study

101
00:06:42,840 --> 00:06:47,830
Fighting hunger, reuniting soldiers with the
dogs they left behind, helping heal wounded

102
00:06:47,830 --> 00:06:49,639
troops -- these are some of the achievements

103
00:06:49,639 --> 00:06:54,849
of CNN Heroes, folks who took a step to help
others and wound up changing lives.

104
00:06:54,849 --> 00:07:00,60
It doesn`t always take money or trips across
oceans, though. Sometimes, it just takes a

105
00:07:00,60 --> 00:07:02,300
book. And that pretty much covers the subject

106
00:07:02,300 --> 00:07:03,779
of today`s Character Study.

107
00:07:03,779 --> 00:07:12,69
I`ve always loved to read. It kind of takes
you to a different place. My mom told me when

108
00:07:12,69 --> 00:07:13,620
I was eight that some kids

109
00:07:13,620 --> 00:07:20,419
don`t have books. And that shocked me because
everybody should have the option to read.

110
00:07:20,419 --> 00:07:27,490
So I started by just doing a small book drive
and then told my parents that I wanted to

111
00:07:27,490 --> 00:07:30,70
collect and distribute one million books to
kids in need

112
00:07:30,70 --> 00:07:33,620
by the time I turn 18.

113
00:07:33,620 --> 00:07:41,90
So welcome to the Reading Warehouse. I was
13 when I reached my goal. We`ve given books

114
00:07:41,90 --> 00:07:44,560
to about 16 countries and 40 states.

115
00:07:44,560 --> 00:07:48,999
Meeting the teachers, it`s amazing, because
I hear all about the kids they serve.

116
00:07:48,999 --> 00:07:50,409
Thank you, sweetie.

117
00:07:50,409 --> 00:07:53,229
Thank you for your good work.

118
00:07:53,229 --> 00:07:58,449
It`s so much fun to see how reading is impacting
the community.

119
00:07:58,449 --> 00:08:01,520
Good afternoon, sixth grade.

120
00:08:01,520 --> 00:08:07,909
Good afternoon.
We have about 1,280 students, a large homeless

121
00:08:07,909 --> 00:08:10,819
and highly mobile population. They`re in great
need.

122
00:08:10,819 --> 00:08:18,830
When Maria Keller came to my school, I was
so excited. And she just gave us books for

123
00:08:18,830 --> 00:08:21,60
free and it was amazing.

124
00:08:21,60 --> 00:08:26,590
Literacy is so important in education. I want
kids to have a better life. I know that reading

125
00:08:26,590 --> 00:08:32,189
can do that.

126
00:08:32,190 --> 00:08:33,190
Before We Go

127
00:08:33,190 --> 00:08:37,260
Before we go, my producer had me at Agility
Pig. Now, maybe she`s not as fast as your

128
00:08:37,260 --> 00:08:39,990
average Border collie, but her owner says
she`s

129
00:08:39,990 --> 00:08:44,680
incredibly smart, the smartest dog she`s ever
trained. And since the woman who runs the

130
00:08:44,680 --> 00:08:48,459
class doesn`t discriminate, the pig is encouraged
to learn the

131
00:08:48,459 --> 00:08:50,260
ins and outs of agility.

132
00:08:50,260 --> 00:08:55,370
Her motivation is food. While dogs eventually
live for the acclaim of their owners, the

133
00:08:55,370 --> 00:08:57,699
pig just wants to pig out.

134
00:08:57,699 --> 00:09:01,889
And she doesn`t exactly hoof it when she hoofs
it. That`s snout what she`s about. But if

135
00:09:01,889 --> 00:09:04,880
you could pair her pro-pigsity for learning
with the

136
00:09:04,880 --> 00:09:11,130
speed of when pigs fly, it would be a porcine
for dog owners. They`d be hog-tied while you`d

137
00:09:11,130 --> 00:09:12,490
be bacon records.

138
00:09:12,490 --> 00:09:23,869
I`m Carl Azuz, hamming it up for CNN STUDENT
NEWS.
