1
00:00:11,780 --> 00:00:13,99
Welcome back from the weekend.

2
00:00:13,99 --> 00:00:16,139
We`re happy you`re taking 10 minutes for CNN
STUDENT NEWS.

3
00:00:16,139 --> 00:00:18,390
I`m Carl Azuz at the CNN Center.

4
00:00:18,390 --> 00:00:23,560
Our first story takes us to a nation of 26
million people between Saudi Arabia and the

5
00:00:23,560 --> 00:00:26,579
Gulf of Aden. It`s Yemen. Its government was

6
00:00:26,579 --> 00:00:31,430
overthrown in January by Houthi rebels who
had been at odds with the Yemeni government

7
00:00:31,430 --> 00:00:32,450
for years.

8
00:00:32,450 --> 00:00:37,800
The country is very unstable. A terrorist
attack on two mosques last Friday killed more

9
00:00:37,800 --> 00:00:42,309
than 130 people and wounded hundreds more.
The ISIS

10
00:00:42,309 --> 00:00:44,419
militant group said it was responsible.

11
00:00:44,420 --> 00:00:49,800
But al Qaeda also operates in Yemen and the
U.S. says security there continues to get

12
00:00:49,800 --> 00:00:52,839
worse. That`s why the American military pulled
all of its

13
00:00:52,840 --> 00:00:55,469
remaining personnel out of the country this
weekend.

14
00:00:55,469 --> 00:00:59,989
In Yemen`s capital, the American Embassy was
closed last month.

15
00:00:59,989 --> 00:01:04,158
In our coverage of the conflict in Ukraine,
we`ve talked about how relations between the

16
00:01:04,159 --> 00:01:07,390
U.S. and Russia have declined. According to
Gallup

17
00:01:07,390 --> 00:01:12,620
surveys, about half of the American population
had a positive view of Russia three years

18
00:01:12,620 --> 00:01:16,829
ago. Today, 70 percent of Americans have an
unfavorable

19
00:01:16,829 --> 00:01:21,809
view and 82 percent of Russians disapprove
of U.S. leadership.

20
00:01:21,810 --> 00:01:26,350
When Gallup asked Americans earlier this year
what country they`d consider to be America`s

21
00:01:26,350 --> 00:01:29,729
greatest enemy, 18 percent answered Russia,
the

22
00:01:29,730 --> 00:01:34,100
most of any nation worldwide. North Korea
was right behind that.

23
00:01:34,100 --> 00:01:39,30
So it`s significant that with relations between
the U.S. and Russia being at their lowest

24
00:01:39,30 --> 00:01:42,130
point since the end of the cold war, Russia
would

25
00:01:42,130 --> 00:01:47,359
invite North Korea`s leader to an event in
Moscow.

26
00:01:47,359 --> 00:01:52,339
Facing a backlash from the West, Russia is
looking East. President Vladimir Putin

27
00:01:52,340 --> 00:01:58,890
inviting North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to
Moscow to attend upcoming World War II anniversary

28
00:01:58,890 --> 00:01:59,890
celebrations.

29
00:01:59,890 --> 00:02:05,549
A Russian officials says North Korea`s supreme
leader is expected to attend, but so far no

30
00:02:05,549 --> 00:02:07,940
formal confirmation from Pyongyang.

31
00:02:07,940 --> 00:02:13,730
You`ve seen the number of meetings that he`s
had with Western leaders in Europe decline.

32
00:02:13,730 --> 00:02:18,760
And so the Russians have talked about this
Asian alternative. And this is including some

33
00:02:18,760 --> 00:02:21,870
outreach to China, but other countries in
Asia, to try to

34
00:02:21,870 --> 00:02:26,260
portray Mr. Putin as not isolated, which in
fact is the case.

35
00:02:26,260 --> 00:02:31,590
The Kremlin says 68 world leaders were invited
to the Victory Day celebrations on May the

36
00:02:31,590 --> 00:02:33,590
9th, but some leaders, including

37
00:02:33,590 --> 00:02:39,190
President Obama, have declined. Relations
with the West are strained following Russia`s

38
00:02:39,190 --> 00:02:42,980
annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. But recently,
Moscow

39
00:02:42,980 --> 00:02:49,790
and Pyongyang have been fostering warmer relations.
The two countries even declared 2015 their

40
00:02:49,790 --> 00:02:50,819
year of friendship.

41
00:02:50,819 --> 00:02:57,780
If Kim attends, it would be his first official
trip outside North Korea since inheriting

42
00:02:57,780 --> 00:02:59,810
the leadership in late 2011.

43
00:02:59,810 --> 00:03:06,330
If he`s able to go to meet Putin in Moscow
or elsewhere in Russia, this would appear

44
00:03:06,330 --> 00:03:07,330
to be a sign

45
00:03:07,330 --> 00:03:12,689
that he has completely consolidated control
and he`s confident enough to leave the nest

46
00:03:12,689 --> 00:03:15,930
and go do statesmanlike things around the
world.

47
00:03:15,930 --> 00:03:22,780
And Putin continues to flex Russia`s military
muscles. Defense officials saying nearly 80,000

48
00:03:22,780 --> 00:03:24,180
troops have been placed on

49
00:03:24,180 --> 00:03:31,209
full combat alert. On Wednesday, NATO jets
intercepted a number of Russian military aircraft

50
00:03:31,209 --> 00:03:35,629
as they neared Latvian airspace, further rattling
nerves

51
00:03:35,629 --> 00:03:38,349
among Russia`s neighbors.

52
00:03:38,349 --> 00:03:43,190
India has the second highest human population
in the world. But it`s number one when it

53
00:03:43,190 --> 00:03:45,859
comes to tigers. It`s home to about half the

54
00:03:45,860 --> 00:03:50,410
world`s tigers. They typically live about
eight to 10 years in the wild, though all

55
00:03:50,410 --> 00:03:54,189
tiger subspecies are endangered. India doesn`t
have nearly as

56
00:03:54,189 --> 00:03:59,739
many as it used to, but their numbers are
growing again, thanks, in large part, to conservation

57
00:03:59,740 --> 00:04:00,740
efforts.

58
00:04:00,740 --> 00:04:02,530
Here`s what one of those efforts looks like.

59
00:04:02,530 --> 00:04:09,939
When people report tiger attacks, they say
it came out of nowhere.

60
00:04:09,939 --> 00:04:15,579
It is staggering to think that there were
tens of thousands of tigers in the forests

61
00:04:15,580 --> 00:04:17,360
of India. Now, there`s just over 2,200, something

62
00:04:17,360 --> 00:04:18,360
like that.

63
00:04:18,360 --> 00:04:20,620
India: Tigers and the Taj

64
00:04:20,620 --> 00:04:26,610
Oh, that`s very good. Oh, you`re good.

65
00:04:26,610 --> 00:04:27,970
How are things going?

66
00:04:27,970 --> 00:04:29,190
How goes the fight?

67
00:04:29,190 --> 00:04:34,190
It`s been good. The numbers say there are
2226 tigers in India

68
00:04:34,190 --> 00:04:35,660
in the wild.

69
00:04:35,660 --> 00:04:38,800
WEIR: Who else has seen a tiger?

70
00:04:38,800 --> 00:04:41,460
Lots of you.

71
00:04:41,460 --> 00:04:46,489
Conflict has not really gone higher than the
last few months.

72
00:04:46,490 --> 00:04:54,360
Your real passion is saving tigers, through
conflict resolution, there`s a very visceral

73
00:04:54,360 --> 00:04:56,60
fear of the tiger throughout much of

74
00:04:56,60 --> 00:05:00,780
India. So if one comes into a village, they`re
often killed. And you go into these places

75
00:05:00,780 --> 00:05:04,8
and try to talk people down, try to make them
appreciate

76
00:05:04,9 --> 00:05:07,570
the value of a forest with wild tigers.

77
00:05:07,570 --> 00:05:16,180
It`s all about people and their code of conduct,
because you can`t get people out of the forest,

78
00:05:16,180 --> 00:05:19,60
you can`t get animals out of these

79
00:05:19,60 --> 00:05:21,750
human dominated forests.

80
00:05:21,750 --> 00:05:28,280
This is the corridor that we`ve created.

81
00:05:28,280 --> 00:05:35,388
You took me to this little farm you purchased
between two tiger preserves and it has turned

82
00:05:35,389 --> 00:05:37,310
into wildlife superhighway.

83
00:05:37,310 --> 00:05:43,9
When I show pictures that this is from my
kitchen, I`ve shown that I have tigers walking

84
00:05:43,9 --> 00:05:44,870
here, anyhow, it freaks them out.

85
00:05:44,870 --> 00:05:50,340
WEIR: You`re trying to convince your neighboring
farmers that maybe you should stop farming

86
00:05:50,340 --> 00:05:52,440
and let your land go wild.

87
00:05:52,440 --> 00:06:01,900
If you stop farming and if you let free forests
come back and get some economic benefits from

88
00:06:01,900 --> 00:06:07,570
eco-tourism, it would be a win-win

89
00:06:07,570 --> 00:06:08,570
situation.

90
00:06:08,570 --> 00:06:10,409
Roll Call

91
00:06:10,410 --> 00:06:14,290
As part of our presentation, we now present
three schools that are present on today`s

92
00:06:14,290 --> 00:06:15,520
Roll Call.

93
00:06:15,520 --> 00:06:20,940
The Rams are here from San Antonio, Texas.
It`s the home of John Marshall High School.

94
00:06:20,940 --> 00:06:26,550
The Wildcats are watching. LaGrange is in
Ohio. It`s where we found Keystone High School.

95
00:06:26,550 --> 00:06:31,410
And it`s knight time. Castle Heights Middle
School is online from South Carolina in the

96
00:06:31,410 --> 00:06:33,289
city of Rock Hill.

97
00:06:33,289 --> 00:06:38,68
An international film festival kicked off
last October. It had some unique characteristics.

98
00:06:38,69 --> 00:06:40,600
One, it was open only to students between

99
00:06:40,600 --> 00:06:46,20
kindergarten and twelfth grade. Two, its theme
was the impact of giving back, the focus on

100
00:06:46,20 --> 00:06:47,250
serving others.

101
00:06:47,250 --> 00:06:53,50
Three, out of more than 1,500 submissions,
15 of the short films were screened last Friday

102
00:06:53,50 --> 00:06:55,940
at the White House. President Obama, Oscar
winning

103
00:06:55,940 --> 00:07:00,770
actress Hillary Swank and Oscar winning director
Steve McQueen were there. It was the second

104
00:07:00,770 --> 00:07:03,330
year for the event, which was sponsored by
the American

105
00:07:03,330 --> 00:07:08,620
Film Institute and participant media. Finalists
were invited to attend the screening and they

106
00:07:08,620 --> 00:07:11,259
got to go to workshops afterward focused on
sharpening

107
00:07:11,259 --> 00:07:12,629
their skills in filmmaking.

108
00:07:12,629 --> 00:07:18,550
He`s an example of what one of the White House`s
15 selections looked like.

109
00:07:18,550 --> 00:07:21,30
What will you give back?

110
00:07:21,30 --> 00:07:22,989
People get stuck when asked.

111
00:07:22,990 --> 00:07:31,849
I don`t know, their faces respond. Oh, if
they only saw what I saw. We are capable of

112
00:07:31,849 --> 00:07:34,699
giving so much, for we have been given all
we need to

113
00:07:34,699 --> 00:07:38,380
give it all up. We have a beating heart, air
in our lungs.

114
00:07:38,380 --> 00:07:41,750
Don`t you see what I see?

115
00:07:41,750 --> 00:07:48,699
The teacher passionately giving away her education
for the sake of the student who is full of

116
00:07:48,699 --> 00:07:54,930
determination, determination to rise, to dream,
to

117
00:07:54,930 --> 00:08:00,800
fight, to create. Giving their imagination
for others to find inspiration. Giving their

118
00:08:00,800 --> 00:08:05,631
stories in hopes for others to see what they
see. Giving

119
00:08:05,631 --> 00:08:11,128
their voice for others to find their own,
giving their words for others to know we are

120
00:08:11,129 --> 00:08:12,230
not alone.

121
00:08:12,230 --> 00:08:19,360
The will to give has no age. Here`s a wise
coach -- giving away his child-like heart

122
00:08:19,360 --> 00:08:22,750
for boys who just want to have fun, a humble
custodian

123
00:08:22,750 --> 00:08:30,780
giving away her sore hands for others to live
in cleanliness. The impact transcends time

124
00:08:30,780 --> 00:08:31,780
and space.

125
00:08:31,780 --> 00:08:42,510
So here`s to giving it all away.

126
00:08:42,510 --> 00:08:49,390
Before We Go
Before we go, a fish called Greedo. "Star

127
00:08:49,390 --> 00:08:54,170
Wars" might get the name. For the rest of
us, it`s one crude catfish. It was discovered

128
00:08:54,170 --> 00:08:55,170
in

129
00:08:55,170 --> 00:08:59,920
1998 but it wasn`t until this year that it
was designated a new species.

130
00:08:59,920 --> 00:09:05,000
Because of its large eyes and bristling bristles,
a researcher thought it looked like a short-lived

131
00:09:05,000 --> 00:09:06,000
"Star Wars" character.

132
00:09:06,000 --> 00:09:10,630
If you were looking for the off screen version
of Greedo, you can find it in the waters of

133
00:09:10,630 --> 00:09:13,770
Northern Brazil. It might lack the aura of
an

134
00:09:13,770 --> 00:09:18,329
angelfish, the colors of a clown fish or the
regality of the regal tang, but it`s not Greedo

135
00:09:18,330 --> 00:09:20,850
for attention. There are many fish in the
sea and this

136
00:09:20,850 --> 00:09:25,40
cat is catching coverage swimmingly from fins
around the galaxy.

137
00:09:25,40 --> 00:09:27,329
This is CNN STUDENT NEWS and that`s our catch
of the day.
