1
00:00:11,80 --> 00:00:16,650
Happy New Year. Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS
and our first show of 2017. My name is Carl

2
00:00:16,650 --> 00:00:22,360
Azuz. We`re starting off this January 6 program
with a bang. Millions of them. Cities worldwide

3
00:00:22,360 --> 00:00:27,660
lit up their landmarks as the clocks struck
midnight, January 1. One of the most remarkable

4
00:00:27,660 --> 00:00:33,180
fireworks displays was in the Middle East.
The United Arab Emirates has the world`s tallest

5
00:00:33,180 --> 00:00:37,860
building, biggest shopping mall and now the
Guinness world record for largest fireworks

6
00:00:37,860 --> 00:00:45,100
display. The previous record, 77,000 fireworks
in just over an hour. The new one, 500,000

7
00:00:45,100 --> 00:00:46,879
and who cares how long it took.

8
00:00:46,879 --> 00:00:51,979
Of course, some folks stayed in on New Year,
some were stuck inside or inside an airport

9
00:00:51,979 --> 00:00:56,430
due to winter weather. Some were stuck in
a ship. A group of scientists, journalists

10
00:00:56,430 --> 00:01:01,580
and tourists were trapped by sea ice on a
holiday cruise to Antarctica. They have plenty

11
00:01:01,580 --> 00:01:05,289
of food and supplies during the ten days they
were stranded, but they had to be rescued

12
00:01:05,290 --> 00:01:11,980
by helicopter when another ship that tried
to help also got stuck in ice. How does that

13
00:01:11,980 --> 00:01:13,70
happen?

14
00:01:13,70 --> 00:01:18,100
You`d think that because this is a glacial
environment, sea ice would move in a glacial

15
00:01:18,100 --> 00:01:23,979
pace. Not the case. Roughs (ph) of ice move
quickly, rushed over the sea by wind. They

16
00:01:23,980 --> 00:01:28,800
can expand and grow thicker, rise and fall
with the waves beneath them. And blizzard

17
00:01:28,800 --> 00:01:33,179
conditions common to Antarctica even in summer,
don`t help.

18
00:01:33,180 --> 00:01:37,540
You might remember this scene from Minnesota,
when wind blew ice ashore from Mille Lacs

19
00:01:37,540 --> 00:01:42,790
Lake, climbing and cracking in the doors and
window. Think of the same principle and a

20
00:01:42,790 --> 00:01:48,100
massive frigid sea. And you can see how a
Russian research vessel en route to the Antarctic

21
00:01:48,100 --> 00:01:52,940
got trapped. How Ernest Shackleton in "The
Endurance" were surrounded, and how that ship

22
00:01:52,940 --> 00:01:57,810
was eventually crushed. Even animals used
to these conditions like the trapped whales

23
00:01:57,810 --> 00:02:04,229
dramatized in last year`s movie "Big Miracle"
are vulnerable.

24
00:02:04,229 --> 00:02:08,940
Did you see that?

25
00:02:08,940 --> 00:02:14,230
So, what does it take to get through the ice
and rescue whales, cruise ships or anything

26
00:02:14,230 --> 00:02:20,450
else that get stranded? Wait. Sea ice as thick
as ten feet can be broken and the sloping

27
00:02:20,450 --> 00:02:25,480
holes (ph) of some icebreakers are designed
to actually wedge up on top of the ice, so

28
00:02:25,480 --> 00:02:30,480
the heavy ship can crush down on it. The bows
(ph) are also designed to then move the cracked

29
00:02:30,480 --> 00:02:36,380
ice to the side, plowing a path that other
ships can follow, a crusty road to open water

30
00:02:36,380 --> 00:02:37,769
out of frozen maize.

31
00:02:37,770 --> 00:02:42,709
As many of you are getting back into the swing
of school today, the U.S. Congress is getting

32
00:02:42,709 --> 00:02:47,530
back in session this week, getting back into
the swing of making laws. The Republican Party

33
00:02:47,530 --> 00:02:51,890
controls the House of Representatives. The
Democratic Party controls the Senate, and

34
00:02:51,890 --> 00:02:55,989
for most lawmakers, this is an election year.
So there are a lot of challenges ahead on

35
00:02:55,990 --> 00:02:58,880
their to-do list.

36
00:02:58,880 --> 00:03:03,700
The president`s vacation is over. He faces
a colder reality now - Congress.

37
00:03:03,700 --> 00:03:09,630
If you`re a glass half full kind of person,
like I am, they are the number one most unproductive

38
00:03:09,630 --> 00:03:11,280
Congress in modern history.

39
00:03:11,280 --> 00:03:13,450
Get ready for possible deja vu.

40
00:03:13,450 --> 00:03:17,880
I wish I had a magic want to say, I know things
will be better.

41
00:03:17,880 --> 00:03:23,569
This year Congress has a full plate - right
off the bat, a potentially easy one for the

42
00:03:23,569 --> 00:03:29,230
Senate, confirming Janet Yellen as the first
woman to head the Federal Reserve. But next,

43
00:03:29,230 --> 00:03:36,000
a real battle over long term unemployment
benefits, both sides arguing Sunday.

44
00:03:36,000 --> 00:03:41,500
Even before vacation was over, President Obama
pressed this weekend to extend the payments.

45
00:03:41,500 --> 00:03:46,150
With regard to unemployment insurance, I`ve
always said that I`m not opposed to unemployment

46
00:03:46,150 --> 00:03:49,790
insurance, I`m opposed to having it without
paying for it.

47
00:03:49,790 --> 00:03:55,700
We have never offset emergency spending. This
foolishness. We have people who are desperate.

48
00:03:55,700 --> 00:04:00,420
They`ve been out of work for some as much
as two years.

49
00:04:00,420 --> 00:04:06,149
On January 15, a major deadline to fund the
government: a deal was reached last year,

50
00:04:06,150 --> 00:04:07,610
but it needs to be finalized.

51
00:04:07,610 --> 00:04:14,870
As early as February, a deadline to raise
the debt ceiling again, with both sides already

52
00:04:14,870 --> 00:04:15,870
dug in.

53
00:04:15,870 --> 00:04:20,120
I think that it will be harmful not just for
the economy, but I think it will be harmful

54
00:04:20,120 --> 00:04:26,319
politically, if Republican choose 2014 as
a year to threaten defaults again on the debt

55
00:04:26,319 --> 00:04:27,319
limit.

56
00:04:27,319 --> 00:04:33,659
And an even heavier lift for a deal on immigration
reform, which has escaped Congress for years.

57
00:04:33,659 --> 00:04:37,879
It can`t be my way or the highway on such
a big issue.

58
00:04:37,879 --> 00:04:43,219
Not to mention, continue (INAUDIBLE) by Republicans
to change Obamacare.

59
00:04:43,219 --> 00:04:47,800
This has been a failed launch, a flawed law
and it needs real change.

60
00:04:47,800 --> 00:04:54,70
Don`t hold your breath for all of this to
be crossed off the list. According to a CNN/ORC

61
00:04:54,70 --> 00:04:59,849
poll, released last year, two thirds of Americans
called "Congress, the Worst Ever." And the

62
00:04:59,849 --> 00:05:04,330
midterm elections will suck up much desire
this year to compromise.

63
00:05:04,330 --> 00:05:14,20
These are not likely to be times of large
fruitful legislative harvest.

64
00:05:14,20 --> 00:05:19,150
Time for "The Shoutout." What factor most
determines the shape of a snowflake? Is it

65
00:05:19,151 --> 00:05:27,379
temperature? Humidity? Altitude or cloud type.
You`ve got three seconds, go.

66
00:05:27,379 --> 00:05:33,770
Ultimately, the temperature determines the
basic shape of the Ice crystal that makes

67
00:05:33,770 --> 00:05:40,839
up a snowflake. That`s your answer and that`s
your shoutout.

68
00:05:40,839 --> 00:05:45,750
At last night`s NFL game in Wisconsin, where
the Green Bay Packers hosted the San Francisco`s

69
00:05:45,750 --> 00:05:51,839
49ers, the wind chill was forecast to hit
negative 15, making it one of the coldest

70
00:05:51,839 --> 00:05:57,389
NFL games ever. The Packers were giving free
hand warmers, hot chocolate and coffee to

71
00:05:57,389 --> 00:06:01,289
fans. If you live in certain parts of North
America and you think it`s never been this

72
00:06:01,289 --> 00:06:07,630
cold before, you might be right. On January
2, the National Weather Service Key West tweeted

73
00:06:07,630 --> 00:06:13,370
that between International Falls, Minnesota
and Key West, Florida, there was a 115 degree

74
00:06:13,370 --> 00:06:19,490
temperature difference. We have what a CNN
meteorologist calls, a polar vortex, chilling

75
00:06:19,490 --> 00:06:25,509
the bones of almost half the U.S. population.
As that arctic cold air mass plowed east,

76
00:06:25,509 --> 00:06:32,180
from the plain states to the East Coast, temperatures
plunged 30 to 50 degrees below normal in some

77
00:06:32,180 --> 00:06:38,589
spots. The effects - traffic accidents, flight
cancellations, school closings. The dangers

78
00:06:38,589 --> 00:06:45,129
- hypothermia, frostbite. The forecast - temperatures
will be getting back to normal starting Wednesday.

79
00:06:45,129 --> 00:06:47,990
The western U.S. was mostly unaffected.

80
00:06:47,990 --> 00:06:52,960
Now, for the CNN STUDENT NEWS, roll call.
Here`s a look at some of the schools watching

81
00:06:52,960 --> 00:06:58,99
our show. First, from Hickory High School
in Hickory, North Carolina. The Red Tornadoes.

82
00:06:58,99 --> 00:07:04,140
We head it over to Kentucky next for Olmstead
Academy North and the Colts. And last, but

83
00:07:04,140 --> 00:07:09,318
not least, from Sanford, high school in Sanford,
Maine, the Spartans are on today`s roll.

84
00:07:09,319 --> 00:07:14,699
Last month, hundreds of farmers in Utah noticed
something disturbing. Dozens of bald eagles

85
00:07:14,699 --> 00:07:19,710
lying sick on the ground. It left officials
at the wild life rehabilitation center of

86
00:07:19,710 --> 00:07:24,948
northern Utah scratching their heads - what
was causing this, could it be linked to a

87
00:07:24,949 --> 00:07:30,110
recent dieoff of eared grebes, which stopped
at the Great Salt Lake this time a year and

88
00:07:30,110 --> 00:07:32,870
which Eagles are known to eat.

89
00:07:32,870 --> 00:07:34,919
It`s very troubling.

90
00:07:34,919 --> 00:07:36,889
It was a puzzling mystery.

91
00:07:36,889 --> 00:07:40,949
Right now we have 27 Eagles that we know have
died.

92
00:07:40,949 --> 00:07:45,59
Nearly three dozen bald eagles dead. Another
five, sick.

93
00:07:45,59 --> 00:07:48,110
Lead poisoning has been definitively ruled
out.

94
00:07:48,110 --> 00:07:51,29
The division of wild life resources looks
at every possibility.

95
00:07:51,29 --> 00:07:55,490
We`ve been able to rule out a lot of things.
What they couldn`t rule out is the West Nile

96
00:07:55,490 --> 00:08:00,129
Virus. A virus spread by mosquitoes, but mosquitoes
this time of year?

97
00:08:00,129 --> 00:08:05,60
Now all the science and symptoms that we were
seeing in the birds indicated something similar

98
00:08:05,60 --> 00:08:11,809
to West Nile, but the time of year threw that
guess off.

99
00:08:11,809 --> 00:08:16,159
So, they kept digging and determined that
the bald eagles had been scavenging on dead

100
00:08:16,159 --> 00:08:21,849
grebes infected with West Nile. How they got
the virus in the winter, is still not clear.

101
00:08:21,849 --> 00:08:26,498
Maybe they picked it up in another state then
migrate it here to Utah. Or the grebes arrived

102
00:08:26,499 --> 00:08:29,180
here early, when mosquitoes were still around.

103
00:08:29,180 --> 00:08:35,710
We don`t think that overall, the mortalities
that we see will affect our population here

104
00:08:35,710 --> 00:08:38,459
in Utah or it was in the United States.

105
00:08:38,458 --> 00:08:44,530
Although 27 dead eagles seems like a lot wildlife
bosses don`t t think Utah`s population of

106
00:08:44,530 --> 00:08:51,69
bald Eagle`s numbering about 750 to a 1000,
will be adversely affected. As for the five

107
00:08:51,70 --> 00:08:54,10
sick yet surviving birds, they are recovering.

108
00:08:54,10 --> 00:09:00,939
Cutie would be responding really well to treatment.
Hopefully, we`ll be able to release them.

109
00:09:00,940 --> 00:09:06,490
Week story: two babies born in different years,
better story - they are twins. You`re looking

110
00:09:06,490 --> 00:09:12,240
at a pair of sisters. They were born a minute
part at a hospital in Texas, but what a difference

111
00:09:12,240 --> 00:09:19,920
that minute made. One girl was delivered at
11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2016. The other,

112
00:09:19,920 --> 00:09:27,360
12 a.m. on January 1, 2017. Both are healthy,
though there were complications early in the

113
00:09:27,360 --> 00:09:32,470
pregnancy. For that reason, their mother says
they`ll each get their own birthday party.

114
00:09:32,470 --> 00:09:36,830
I`m guessing the reaction to that idea would
be identical - it`s a win-win for the twin-twin.

115
00:09:36,830 --> 00:09:41,340
We hope you find the time to watch CNN STUDENT
NEWS again tomorrow. We can`t promise another

116
00:09:41,340 --> 00:09:45,470
story like that, but if we find one, it will
make us all twice as happy. Have a great day,

117
00:09:45,470 --> 00:09:45,970
everyone.
