1
00:00:11,860 --> 00:00:13,549
Welcome to our viewers worldwide.

2
00:00:13,550 --> 00:00:16,80
I`m Carl Azuz for CNN STUDENT NEWS.

3
00:00:16,79 --> 00:00:21,520
Our first story this March 19th focuses on
an apparent terrorist attack in the North

4
00:00:21,520 --> 00:00:24,79
African nation of Tunisia. It`s a country
between

5
00:00:24,79 --> 00:00:30,469
Algeria and Libya, population about 11 million.
Officials say several gunmen entered a museum

6
00:00:30,469 --> 00:00:33,350
in Tunisia`s capital on Thursday and killed
at

7
00:00:33,350 --> 00:00:38,710
least 17 tourists and two others, one of them
a Tunisian security officer.

8
00:00:38,710 --> 00:00:43,620
The terrorists also took hostages, but Tunisian
law enforcement were able to end the siege

9
00:00:43,620 --> 00:00:46,150
and kill two of the attackers. Police are
looking

10
00:00:46,150 --> 00:00:47,910
for three other gunmen.

11
00:00:47,910 --> 00:00:53,390
Tunisian Prime Minister Habib Essid called
it "a cowardly attack targeting Tunisia`s

12
00:00:53,390 --> 00:00:55,520
economy." Tourism is a key part of that.

13
00:00:55,520 --> 00:01:01,50
The museum where the attack happened has exhibits
of Tunisian art, culture and history. It`s

14
00:01:01,50 --> 00:01:03,99
right next to the parliament building, which
was

15
00:01:03,100 --> 00:01:04,150
evacuated.

16
00:01:04,150 --> 00:01:09,171
No group immediately took responsibility for
the attack, but ties to the ISIS terrorist

17
00:01:09,171 --> 00:01:11,49
group are suspected.

18
00:01:11,49 --> 00:01:16,299
From North Africa to the Middle East, immediately
after Israel`s election on Tuesday, polls

19
00:01:16,299 --> 00:01:19,250
in local media indicated that two main political

20
00:01:19,250 --> 00:01:25,80
parties were locked in a dead heat. But when
the actual vote count came in, it became clear

21
00:01:25,80 --> 00:01:27,420
that the party of current prime minister,
Benjamin

22
00:01:27,420 --> 00:01:33,750
Netanyahu, won a major victory, taking 29
of the Knesset`s 120 seats.

23
00:01:33,750 --> 00:01:40,430
Results are still unofficial, but most analysts
expect Netanyahu to keep his job leading Israel.

24
00:01:40,430 --> 00:01:43,730
Roll Call

25
00:01:43,730 --> 00:01:46,200
Time for our epic Thursday Roll Call.

26
00:01:46,200 --> 00:01:48,490
Which state is known as The Pine Tree State?

27
00:01:48,490 --> 00:01:53,899
Here`s the main reason we ask. Tripp Middle
School is there in Turner, Maine, The Tigers

28
00:01:53,900 --> 00:01:55,420
are on the prowl.

29
00:01:55,420 --> 00:01:59,760
There are tons of gators in The Sunshine State,
but the ones at Island Coast High School are

30
00:01:59,760 --> 00:02:02,900
on today`s Roll. Hello, Cape Coral, Florida.

31
00:02:02,900 --> 00:02:08,340
And in St. Cloud, Minnesota, The North Star
State, it`s The Eagles of North Junior High

32
00:02:08,340 --> 00:02:11,829
School who round out our role.

33
00:02:11,829 --> 00:02:17,10
About 50,000 people live on the Faroe Islands.
They`re roughly halfway between Scotland and

34
00:02:17,10 --> 00:02:18,909
Iceland. But thousands more will be there

35
00:02:18,909 --> 00:02:23,840
Friday to witness an event that lasts just
two minutes -- a total eclipse of the sun.

36
00:02:23,840 --> 00:02:27,470
The U.S. won`t see one of those until 2017.

37
00:02:27,470 --> 00:02:32,60
In addition to the Faroes, parts of Europe,
Northern Asia and Northern Africa could see

38
00:02:32,60 --> 00:02:35,11
a partial eclipse. And as long as viewers
don`t look

39
00:02:35,11 --> 00:02:36,11
directly at it, they`ll be fine.

40
00:02:36,11 --> 00:02:38,790
What is a Solar Eclipse?

41
00:02:38,790 --> 00:02:47,629
Long ago, ancient cultures around the globe
looked to the skies in shock and bewilderment.

42
00:02:47,629 --> 00:02:48,629
Many believed

43
00:02:48,629 --> 00:02:53,950
they were watching the sun being eaten by
an animal, like a dog or a mythical dragon.

44
00:02:53,950 --> 00:02:59,929
Now we know there`s a more scientific explanation
for one of nature`s most spectacular displays,

45
00:02:59,930 --> 00:03:10,390
the solar eclipse.

46
00:03:10,390 --> 00:03:14,599
Watching as the moon blocks out the light
from the sun, it can be hard to imagine the

47
00:03:14,599 --> 00:03:16,810
amazing cosmic coincidence taking

48
00:03:16,810 --> 00:03:22,560
place. The sun`s diameter is some 400 times
larger than the moon`s, but it`s just the

49
00:03:22,560 --> 00:03:26,940
right distance away to appear the same size.

50
00:03:26,940 --> 00:03:31,690
For a couple of minutes when the sun and moon
are perfectly aligned, the moon completely

51
00:03:31,690 --> 00:03:35,849
covers the sun`s disc. The sun`s atmosphere
or corona

52
00:03:35,849 --> 00:03:41,519
can be seen in the dim light, along with stars
and planets. This glowing atmosphere is much

53
00:03:41,520 --> 00:03:44,330
hotter than the surface of the sun, but no
one is

54
00:03:44,330 --> 00:03:54,290
exactly sure why. It`s a question puzzling
astronomers.

55
00:03:54,290 --> 00:03:59,730
This so-called totality only exists in a narrow
band, where the moon`s shadow falls on the

56
00:03:59,730 --> 00:04:03,470
Earth. Outside this zone, some observers can
see a

57
00:04:03,470 --> 00:04:07,959
partial eclipse, where it looks like a chunk
has been taken out of the sun.

58
00:04:07,959 --> 00:04:13,349
It`s not a phenomenon that will last forever.
The moon is slowly moving away from the Earth

59
00:04:13,349 --> 00:04:16,690
and one day, it will appear too small in the
sky

60
00:04:16,690 --> 00:04:22,860
to cover the sun completely. But don`t worry,
if you miss this total solar eclipse, NASA

61
00:04:22,860 --> 00:04:27,780
estimates that you still have 563 million
years to catch one.

62
00:04:27,780 --> 00:04:33,729
If you are lucky enough to see this incredible
spectacle, remember, never look directly at

63
00:04:33,729 --> 00:04:37,758
the sun, even with everyday sunglasses. You
risk causing

64
00:04:37,759 --> 00:04:42,860
permanent damage to your eyes. If you don`t
have access to special filters, a safe way

65
00:04:42,860 --> 00:04:45,240
to observe the show is to make a pinhole in
a piece of

66
00:04:45,240 --> 00:04:50,259
paper and project the image onto another sheet.

67
00:04:50,259 --> 00:04:55,819
Just after the Ides of March, the madness
of March begins in the US. It`s over basketball.

68
00:04:55,819 --> 00:04:57,349
The National Collegiate Athletic

69
00:04:57,349 --> 00:05:03,889
Association`s annual college basketball tournament.
The round of 64 teams starts today. Fans fill

70
00:05:03,889 --> 00:05:06,580
out brackets of their predicted winners of
each

71
00:05:06,580 --> 00:05:10,529
game, hoping to make the perfect prediction
and never actually doing it.

72
00:05:10,529 --> 00:05:16,629
There are always upsets and if each team had
a 50 practice chance of winning every game,

73
00:05:16,629 --> 00:05:21,479
you had a one in 9.2 quintillion chance of
picking the

74
00:05:21,479 --> 00:05:22,930
perfect bracket.

75
00:05:22,930 --> 00:05:26,719
Amid all the fun, there`s a serious question.
The players are college students.

76
00:05:26,719 --> 00:05:28,330
Are they getting out of class?

77
00:05:28,330 --> 00:05:34,389
For so many basketball players, this is it.
These are the greatest games they`ll ever

78
00:05:34,389 --> 00:05:35,869
play. Very few of them,

79
00:05:35,869 --> 00:05:38,639
less than 2 percent, will go pro.

80
00:05:38,639 --> 00:05:44,550
So their real game is in their scholarships,
in their education. But athletes have been

81
00:05:44,550 --> 00:05:48,80
more vocal than ever this year about the realities
of

82
00:05:48,80 --> 00:05:53,849
playing NCAA sports, that their scholarships
are often squandered because so much of their

83
00:05:53,849 --> 00:05:56,880
time is consumed by athletics.

84
00:05:56,880 --> 00:06:04,159
Players who make the NCAA tournament will
miss an average of 20 days of class per season.

85
00:06:04,160 --> 00:06:07,580
There`s this thing called the 20 hour rule
in college

86
00:06:07,580 --> 00:06:12,479
athletics. Is supposed to limit the amount
of time that athletes spend each week on their

87
00:06:12,479 --> 00:06:13,479
sport.

88
00:06:13,479 --> 00:06:21,270
Well, Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby calls
this rule a joke. He says it`s routinely ignored.

89
00:06:21,270 --> 00:06:24,179
Most fans who are poring over their brackets
are

90
00:06:24,179 --> 00:06:29,818
not surprised by all of this. A recent poll
done by Monmouth University found that 67

91
00:06:29,819 --> 00:06:33,720
practice of fans think that schools put too
much emphasis on

92
00:06:33,720 --> 00:06:34,740
sports.

93
00:06:34,740 --> 00:06:41,219
The average scholarship for an athlete is
about $23,000. If you do the math, 13 scholarshipped

94
00:06:41,219 --> 00:06:46,509
athletes per team, 351 teams, that`s about
$105

95
00:06:46,509 --> 00:06:48,270
million in scholarships.

96
00:06:48,270 --> 00:06:51,169
But the worth of the scholarship?

97
00:06:51,169 --> 00:06:56,659
It doesn`t matter if they`re not going to
class.

98
00:06:56,659 --> 00:07:00,909
Character Study

99
00:07:00,909 --> 00:07:06,20
Joshua Williams leads a charity organization
that aims to fight hunger. He`s 13 years old.

100
00:07:06,20 --> 00:07:08,369
But here`s the kicker. He started the company

101
00:07:08,369 --> 00:07:10,9
before he was five.

102
00:07:10,9 --> 00:07:15,399
Joshua`s grandmother had given him 20 bucks.
Later that day, he saw a man with a sign that

103
00:07:15,399 --> 00:07:18,770
said, "Need money, need food." Joshua gave
the man his

104
00:07:18,770 --> 00:07:23,799
20 and decided to give his efforts toward
helping others.

105
00:07:23,800 --> 00:07:26,699
We`re signing in people.

106
00:07:26,699 --> 00:07:28,69
Has everybody here signed in?

107
00:07:28,69 --> 00:07:31,520
When I was four and a half years old, I found
my purpose in life.

108
00:07:31,520 --> 00:07:32,919
We`re going to have around 100 families. We`re
going to give them food.

109
00:07:32,919 --> 00:07:42,318
I looked for a foundation that would accept
somebody my age. I didn`t find any. So I came

110
00:07:42,319 --> 00:07:45,949
up with the idea of Joshuas Heart Foundation.

111
00:07:45,949 --> 00:07:48,529
OK, are you guys ready?

112
00:07:48,529 --> 00:07:49,529
Yes.

113
00:07:49,529 --> 00:07:52,940
WILLIAMS: Joshuas Heart Foundation has no
age limit. And as long as you`re able to pick

114
00:07:52,940 --> 00:07:55,750
something up, just come out and help us make
a

115
00:07:55,750 --> 00:07:56,750
difference.

116
00:07:56,750 --> 00:08:00,199
It feels really good to be here.

117
00:08:00,199 --> 00:08:03,550
We did a really nice mitzvah.

118
00:08:03,550 --> 00:08:10,750
Since I started, I have given out over 650,000
tons of food to over 30,000 individuals.

119
00:08:10,750 --> 00:08:15,889
We`re going to do one -- one tuna.

120
00:08:15,889 --> 00:08:17,349
One tuna?

121
00:08:17,349 --> 00:08:21,459
One tuna. We need enough for everybody.

122
00:08:21,459 --> 00:08:25,629
Right now, we have over 1,200 youth volunteers.

123
00:08:25,629 --> 00:08:27,189
Thank you, darling.

124
00:08:27,189 --> 00:08:28,239
Thank you.

125
00:08:28,239 --> 00:08:34,90
I`m grateful to know there`s still young people
that cares for other people.

126
00:08:34,90 --> 00:08:38,979
It`s very important to develop connections
and relationships with these people that we`re

127
00:08:38,979 --> 00:08:42,969
helping.
God bless you, you know. God bless you. And

128
00:08:42,969 --> 00:08:43,979
thank you.

129
00:08:43,979 --> 00:08:48,700
If you want to make a difference, I have three
bits of advice for you.

130
00:08:48,700 --> 00:08:53,660
One, use your passion and purpose in life
to help make a change in the community.

131
00:08:53,660 --> 00:08:56,339
Two, get your friends to help.

132
00:08:56,340 --> 00:09:02,639
And three, never give up.

133
00:09:02,639 --> 00:09:09,350
Before We Go

134
00:09:09,350 --> 00:09:15,100
Just what does 20,000 pounds of fireworks
look like when they`re all set off at once?

135
00:09:15,100 --> 00:09:18,470
Here you go.

136
00:09:18,470 --> 00:09:23,180
These are -- or were -- illegal fireworks.
The Midland, Texas Police Department says

137
00:09:23,180 --> 00:09:26,540
a court had ordered them destroyed and that
Midland Police

138
00:09:26,540 --> 00:09:31,50
were helping U.S. government law enforcement
get rid of them. It was done during the day

139
00:09:31,50 --> 00:09:34,170
because it wasn`t supposed to be a fireworks
show. But it

140
00:09:34,170 --> 00:09:35,360
still looks like a blast.

141
00:09:35,360 --> 00:09:40,589
You could say the fireworks were fired in
a fiery work of ire flinging frying fire higher,

142
00:09:40,589 --> 00:09:43,670
flying flames of flying fire, they flamed
out, up away,

143
00:09:43,670 --> 00:09:48,550
a flamtastic display, making for a flamous
way for us to wish you a good day.

144
