1
00:00:11,790 --> 00:00:16,331
Ticking off 10 minutes of global events for
a global audience. I`m Carl Azuz from the

2
00:00:16,331 --> 00:00:17,331
CNN Center.

3
00:00:17,331 --> 00:00:23,20
For the first time since 2004, the U.S. government
is recognizing a genocide. U.S. Secretary

4
00:00:23,20 --> 00:00:25,900
of State John Kerry says the ISIS terrorist
group

5
00:00:25,900 --> 00:00:31,430
is committing genocide, the mass murder of
Christians, Shiite Muslims and Yazidis in

6
00:00:31,430 --> 00:00:34,800
the nations of Iraq and Syria. The Obama administration
had

7
00:00:34,800 --> 00:00:38,690
been criticized for its reluctance to use
the term until now.

8
00:00:38,690 --> 00:00:44,140
On Monday, the House of Representatives passed
a unanimous resolution to label some of ISIS`s

9
00:00:44,140 --> 00:00:47,630
crime as genocide. That vote and the administration`s

10
00:00:47,630 --> 00:00:52,591
announcement don`t require the government
to take additional action against ISIS, but

11
00:00:52,591 --> 00:00:55,710
it could increase pressure on it to more aggressively
fight the

12
00:00:55,710 --> 00:01:01,120
terrorists or to allow more refugees from
Iraq and Syria into the U.S.

13
00:01:01,120 --> 00:01:06,399
This is video from 2014 on an Iraqi Air Force
flight that rescued some Yazidis from a mountain

14
00:01:06,400 --> 00:01:09,689
in Iraq. ISIS had trapped and targeted them.

15
00:01:09,689 --> 00:01:15,398
An American student is now a prisoner in North
Korea. Twenty-one-year-old Otto Warmbier was

16
00:01:15,399 --> 00:01:18,650
visiting the capital Pyongyang on a tour organized
by a

17
00:01:18,650 --> 00:01:20,400
Chinese travel company.

18
00:01:20,400 --> 00:01:26,140
On January 2nd, he was arrested and accused
of stealing a political banner from his hotel.

19
00:01:26,140 --> 00:01:29,460
Warmbier later admitted to the crime and said
he was lured

20
00:01:29,460 --> 00:01:34,440
by the U.S. government to commit, but it`s
possible that North Korean officials pressured

21
00:01:34,440 --> 00:01:37,160
him to read that statement. Warmbier was sentenced
to

22
00:01:37,160 --> 00:01:42,240
15 years of hard labor, a penalty that the
U.S. State Department says doesn`t fit the

23
00:01:42,240 --> 00:01:43,250
crime.

24
00:01:43,250 --> 00:01:48,20
Relations between the U.S. and North Korea
are worse than usual, partly because of North

25
00:01:48,20 --> 00:01:50,229
Korea`s nuclear program and the international
penalties

26
00:01:50,229 --> 00:01:55,630
for it. Partly because of annual military
exercises between the U.S. and South Korea,

27
00:01:55,630 --> 00:01:57,490
which the North opposes.

28
00:01:57,490 --> 00:02:02,000
Warmbier was on an organized tour when he
was detained by the North Koreans on January

29
00:02:02,000 --> 00:02:03,000
2nd.

30
00:02:03,000 --> 00:02:07,921
What are the conditions of the case?
He may be forced to work in agriculture, as

31
00:02:07,921 --> 00:02:10,340
it happened with other American

32
00:02:10,340 --> 00:02:17,310
prisoners. He may spend his days planting
apple trees, for example. It will be fairly

33
00:02:17,310 --> 00:02:21,810
grueling forced labor. It is very likely that
he will be

34
00:02:21,810 --> 00:02:25,920
interrogated by agents of the state security
department.

35
00:02:25,920 --> 00:02:29,890
Human rights groups say similar conditions
were experienced by American missionary Kenneth

36
00:02:29,890 --> 00:02:31,750
Bae, who was held in North Korea

37
00:02:31,750 --> 00:02:37,260
for about two years. U.S. officials tell CNN
they`re working to secure his release and

38
00:02:37,260 --> 00:02:41,269
are urging Kim Jong-un`s regime to pardon
the young American.

39
00:02:41,269 --> 00:02:45,859
Kenneth Bae and another American, Matthew
Todd Miller, had also been accused of perpetrating

40
00:02:45,859 --> 00:02:48,860
hostile acts against Kim`s regime. They were
given

41
00:02:48,860 --> 00:02:52,809
long sentences of hard labor, but released
much earlier.

42
00:02:52,809 --> 00:02:59,670
Based on previous such instances, I would
say that Otto Warmbier would stand a fair

43
00:02:59,670 --> 00:03:03,988
chance of being released about six months
since

44
00:03:03,989 --> 00:03:04,989
his arrest.

45
00:03:04,989 --> 00:03:07,279
Queen Nefertiti`s resting place discovered?

46
00:03:07,279 --> 00:03:14,279
A researcher believes he may have discovered
the resting place of Egypt`s Queen Nefertiti.

47
00:03:14,279 --> 00:03:21,279
Dr. Nicholas Reeves of the University of Arizona
thinks Nefertiti is buried behind passageways

48
00:03:21,279 --> 00:03:23,279
in King Tutankhamun`s tomb.

49
00:03:23,279 --> 00:03:31,290
King Tut was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th
dynasty. His tomb was discovered by English

50
00:03:31,290 --> 00:03:33,790
archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922.

51
00:03:33,790 --> 00:03:40,290
Reeves thinks he discovered hidden doorway
after analyzing digital scan of the walls

52
00:03:40,290 --> 00:03:41,790
of Tutankhamun`s tomb.

53
00:03:41,790 --> 00:03:48,798
He believes beneath layers of plaster may
lie the undisturbed remains on the tomb`s

54
00:03:48,799 --> 00:03:50,799
original owner, Queen Nefertiti.

55
00:03:50,799 --> 00:03:58,799
Nefertiti ruled as chief consort of the Pharaoh
Akhenaten in the late 14th century B.C. She

56
00:03:58,799 --> 00:04:03,809
is thought to have died around 1330 B.C.,
roughly seven

57
00:04:03,809 --> 00:04:05,809
years before King Tut.

58
00:04:05,809 --> 00:04:14,309
The discovery would explain why the size of
King Tut`s tomb is smaller than those of other

59
00:04:14,309 --> 00:04:15,309
Egyptian kings.

60
00:04:15,309 --> 00:04:22,820
Dr. Reeves cautions that this theory must
be proven by on-site analysis of King Tut`s

61
00:04:22,820 --> 00:04:23,820
tomb.

62
00:04:23,820 --> 00:04:28,760
SeaWorld says its current generation of killer
whales will be the last one at its water parks.

63
00:04:28,760 --> 00:04:30,539
The organization has kept and bred these

64
00:04:30,540 --> 00:04:34,500
mammals in decades. But it announced yesterday
that the program is ending.

65
00:04:34,500 --> 00:04:39,980
The company CEO calls SeaWorld`s situation
a paradox. He says that customers come to

66
00:04:39,980 --> 00:04:43,290
the parks in part to watch orcas. But there`s
a growing

67
00:04:43,290 --> 00:04:48,90
number of people who believe that killer whales
don`t belong in human care.

68
00:04:48,90 --> 00:04:52,409
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
said that SeaWorld had taken a step forward,

69
00:04:52,410 --> 00:04:55,10
but then it didn`t go far enough, that it
should send many of

70
00:04:55,10 --> 00:04:57,810
its other animals to ocean sanctuaries.

71
00:04:57,810 --> 00:05:01,970
As for the orcas that are currently in SeaWorld,
the company says they`ll be there for years

72
00:05:01,970 --> 00:05:08,320
to come and get the highest quality care.

73
00:05:08,320 --> 00:05:10,820
We love seeing who`s watching our show from
around the world.

74
00:05:10,820 --> 00:05:16,719
On yesterday`s transcript page at CNNStudentNews.com,
we heard from Sunae Middle School. It`s in

75
00:05:16,720 --> 00:05:19,220
Seongnam City, South Korea. Hello to everyone

76
00:05:19,220 --> 00:05:20,600
watching there.

77
00:05:20,600 --> 00:05:25,230
Next to Rochester, in western New York. The
Trojans are with us from Greece Athena High

78
00:05:25,230 --> 00:05:26,230
School.

79
00:05:26,230 --> 00:05:31,510
And in La Habra, California, hello the Raiders.
Happy to have Sonora High School rounding

80
00:05:31,510 --> 00:05:32,510
out our roll.

81
00:05:32,510 --> 00:05:37,450
Up next, what could be a significant step
forward in protecting motorcycle racers or

82
00:05:37,450 --> 00:05:41,950
downhill skiers. It`s a sort of wearable airbag
system, a giant

83
00:05:41,950 --> 00:05:47,170
that rapidly inflates in several places to
caution a sudden fall. But it`s not cheap.

84
00:05:47,170 --> 00:05:49,980
While a padded motorcycle jacket can cause
a couple of hundred

85
00:05:49,980 --> 00:05:54,130
bucks, the one you`re about to see goes for
over a thousand.

86
00:05:54,130 --> 00:06:00,710
We`re progressing and making the sports safer
and safer.

87
00:06:00,710 --> 00:06:04,830
Safety is usually not cool, right? But you
can hide it.

88
00:06:04,830 --> 00:06:10,520
Since we introduced our airbag system, things
has really gone to the roof.

89
00:06:10,520 --> 00:06:14,780
I never want to crash, but I didn`t want to
experience the airbag and the first time I

90
00:06:14,780 --> 00:06:15,780
did was

91
00:06:15,780 --> 00:06:19,380
impressive because it all happened in split
second, by the time I was off the bike and

92
00:06:19,380 --> 00:06:21,920
unto the floor, I don`t think I had enough
time to even blink

93
00:06:21,920 --> 00:06:26,140
my eye, but the computer itself deployed the
airbag.

94
00:06:26,140 --> 00:06:32,830
So the bag is hidden within the jacket and
it covers mainly the shoulders, the torso

95
00:06:32,830 --> 00:06:37,310
and around the body, to the back protector.

96
00:06:37,310 --> 00:06:42,120
The sensors are all self-contained in the
back protector. It`s three gyroscopes and

97
00:06:42,120 --> 00:06:44,850
three extra durometers and one GPS.

98
00:06:44,850 --> 00:06:51,240
It`s an algorithm that has been developed.
Once the system has detected a crash, it takes

99
00:06:51,240 --> 00:06:55,420
only 25 to 30 milliseconds for the bag to
fully inflate and

100
00:06:55,420 --> 00:07:00,930
go off. So, it`s like 10 times faster with
a blink of an eye.

101
00:07:00,930 --> 00:07:02,630
Three, two, one.

102
00:07:02,630 --> 00:07:07,500
We have been collecting data since 2011 for
skiing. Unlike motorcycling, you spend a lot

103
00:07:07,500 --> 00:07:10,30
of time in the air. It was important for us

104
00:07:10,30 --> 00:07:14,619
to change the algorithm so that it can recognize
when it`s time to really go off and when it`s

105
00:07:14,620 --> 00:07:17,310
actually just a regular jump.

106
00:07:17,310 --> 00:07:22,30
When your gear saves from an injury, that`s
a huge plus because you make it to the next

107
00:07:22,30 --> 00:07:24,669
race. Your career can be stretched into another
five

108
00:07:24,670 --> 00:07:29,460
years if you don`t tear a calf, or any other
type of injury. I think eventually, I guess

109
00:07:29,460 --> 00:07:32,710
it can be so good that people almost never
got hurt.

110
00:07:32,710 --> 00:07:38,520
Our vision is in five, ten years from now,
that every motorcyclist on the street will

111
00:07:38,520 --> 00:07:41,31
wear an airbag. People have a life. They

112
00:07:41,31 --> 00:07:45,350
have a job. They have a family. So, while
they do their sports, they want to feel safer

113
00:07:45,350 --> 00:07:48,240
and they want to be able to come back on Monday
and go back

114
00:07:48,240 --> 00:07:51,160
to work and provide for their family.

115
00:07:51,160 --> 00:08:01,870
We`re thinking also about other applications
of the D-air. This is just the beginning.

116
00:08:01,870 --> 00:08:12,620
"What does the fox say" might be the wrong
question. Maybe it should be, what makes the

117
00:08:12,620 --> 00:08:16,919
fox laugh?

118
00:08:16,919 --> 00:08:21,770
Archer the Arctic fox is a pet in the U.S.
state of Michigan. This live video of him

119
00:08:21,770 --> 00:08:25,750
laughing on command has been viewed tens of
millions of times.

120
00:08:25,750 --> 00:08:30,860
I guess the animal likes being fox-cetious.
Maybe he`d prefer the term foxicle. Would

121
00:08:30,860 --> 00:08:33,890
you call this a ga-fox? Hey, at least someone`s
laughing

122
00:08:33,890 --> 00:08:38,250
at our puns. He doesn`t find them slyfless
(ph). He`d probably call them cunning and

123
00:08:38,250 --> 00:08:40,289
with his support, we`d never be outfoxed.

124
00:08:40,289 --> 00:08:44,439
I`m Carl Azuz with some fox news on CNN. Fridays
are awesome!
