  • Hi. I`m Carl Azuz. This Tuesday on commercial free CNN STUDENT NEWS we are starting in the Middle Eastern nation of Syria.

  • The ISIS terrorist group controls about a third of Iraq and Syria.

  • It released a message over the weekend, that it had murdered another American.

  • Peter Kassig was a 26-year old U.S. medical worker and former Army ranger.

  • He was helping victims of Syria`s civil war when ISIS captured him in Syria more than a year ago.

  • President Obama called Kassig`s murder pure evil.

  • He`s repeatedly said the U.S. wouldn`t send combat ground troops to fight ISIS,

  • but some U.S. military advisors have said that might be necessary and in the worst case scenario the president may change his stance.

  • There are always circumstances in which the United States might need to deploy U.S. ground troops.

  • If we discovered that ISIL had gone possession of a nuclear weapon and we had to run an operation to get it out of their hands then yes,

  • you can anticipate that not only would Chairman Dempsey recommend me sending U.S. ground troops to get that weapon out of their hands,but I would order.

  • Four months after a plane carrying 298 people crashed in Ukraine, wreckage is being removed from the crash site

  • and in international investigation has started.

  • Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was traveling from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia.

  • It was over Eastern Ukraine when it was shot down on July 17.

  • Everyone on board was killed.

  • The U.S. and other Western nations blamed rebels who favor Russia and they are fighting Ukraine for independence.

  • The rebels themselves and the nation of Russia say Ukrainian forces shut down the plane.

  • Investigators hope to find out who is right.

  • It kind of makes sense that you`d find cowboys and cowgirls in the American west.

  • So, that`s where we are starting today in Prineville, Oregon.

  • It`s great to have you watching at Crook Towny High School.

  • Now, north. It`s a first time we`ve called in a school in Michigan`s Upper Peninsula at Hancock Central High School.

  • The bulldogs are in Hancock. And we`ll wrap things up today in Bonaire, Georgia.

  • We`ve got the Jaguars on the roll at Bonaire Middle School.

  • After their games on Sunday, several NFL teams were visited by agents of the U.S. drug enforcement administration.

  • It`s mission is to enforce the nation`s drug laws.

  • And it`s investigating the NFL because hundreds of former players say they were given pills without prescriptions.

  • The DEA agents targeted teen medical staffs looking for a legal prescription: drugs.

  • The 49ers and Buccaneers were inspected, and the Super Bowl champion Seahawks were also reportedly visited by DEA agents.

  • This is all part of an ongoing investigation into potential violations of the controlled substances act.

  • The searches were done without warrants, and no one is expected to be arrested.

  • The reasoning for the inspection`s team from a lawsuit filed in May by more than 1,000 retired NFL players

  • who claim they were illegally given painkillers to keep them on the field.

  • In the 20 century, a number of federal election campaign laws were passed to the U.S.

  • The intent, to limit the ability of wealthy people or organizations to use money to influence an election.

  • But four years ago, the Supreme Court ruled that political spending is a form of political speech,

  • that it`s protected by the First Amendment and that the government cannot regulate it.

  • There are still some rules. For instance, corporations cannot directly work with the campaigns themselves.

  • In April, Democrats were accused of using Twitter to break that rule.

  • They are not the only political party under the microscope.

  • So, in 2010, the Supreme Court ruled that (INAUDIBLE) corporations or unions

  • could spend as much as they want on political speech to influence election,

  • as long as they didn`t coordinate directly with the campaigns or the campaign committees.

  • Smart liars have been trying to find ways to send signals between campaigns

  • and these outside groups that are all spending money for the same goal, and that is to get someone elected.

  • Outside groups, including American Crossroads and the American Action Network

  • collaborated with the National Republican Congressional Committee in order to share pulling data.

  • So, because campaigns cannot coordinate officially with outside groups,

  • what these groups did, they set up public Twitter accounts that no one knows about

  • in order to post polling data and polling numbers in a secret code that you can only read if you had the formula.

  • And they would post this polling data on these Twitter accounts.

  • One of these accounts was named after Bruno Gianelli (ph), which is the name of a fictional character on the show West Wing.

  • He argued in favor of using soft money to pedal issue campaigns.

  • Is - I tried to influence the outcome of the election. So you can`t use soft money, period.

  • Zip doodah (ph) Sam.

  • Here`s an example tweet. It says, cana 48/36-50/17-30/30-NA-10, slash 28, slash 14, dash 21.

  • What does that mean? Right? We guess possibly that California is the state and the number at the end,

  • 21 is the district and then the polling in the middle is the top line numbers.

  • After I`ve got win to this, I emailed a spokesperson for NRCC and the other groups

  • and literally minutes after I sent the email, all of the accounts were deleted.

  • We`ve exposed a couple of these Twitter accounts,

  • but there`s nothing stopping other campaigns or outside groups from doing this in the future.

  • So, as long as these groups continue to hide their information in plain sight.

  • Time for "The Shoutout." Including room and board, what`s the average sticker price to attend an in-state public college?

  • If you think you know it, shout it out!

  • Is it $7,000 a year? $9,000 a year, $12,000 or $19,000. You`ve got three seconds, go.

  • According to the College Board, tuition and room and board combined were just under $19,000 per year.

  • That`s your answer and that`s your "Shoutout."

  • Significantly more expensive if you attended out of state or private school,but what`s key here is sticker price.

  • The College Board says most students won`t pay that.

  • They`ll get grants, financial aid and scholarships to help with the cost.

  • Still, college is tens of thousands of dollars, and all this week, we are looking at ways that students can keep those costs down.

  • 19-year old Alex Bowles is paid to attend college. And he is paid to be here, too.

  • My bigger thing in high school, I was really kind of worried about,even if I go to a four-year college,

  • I`m not going to be able to pay for it. I don`t want to be in debt my entire life, you know,

  • and then I kind of heard about the program and I was like, free college.

  • Alex is one of 51 participants in apprenticeship 2000. A program funded by North Carolina manufacturing companies

  • that provides a technical education and a job to qualified students.

  • Ameritech is one of the corporate partners looking to fill high-skilled manufacturing jobs.

  • I hear so much from executives: they can`t find skilled labor.

  • They look at a place like this, they can`t get the people to fill those jobs. You found a solution in apprenticeships.

  • We have. And we`ve been very successful at it.

  • That`s a real investment for you.

  • Huge investment for a small company.

  • Supported by paying for their tuition at Central Piedmont Community College and providing them with a weekly paycheck.

  • The typical age of a manufacturing worker in this country is like 56 years old.

  • I mean if you are complaining about a lack of skilled labor, you have to be investing on the front end.

  • These are very rigorous programs. They require a high level of math, the high level of physics,

  • but in addition to those theoretical topics, a lot of hands-on experience to working with the machinery,

  • working in the labs, working with their instructors to master the craft of these high tech fields.

  • They`ve got a job on the other end.

  • Right. They have a job waiting for them when they finish the associate`s degree in mechatronics after four years.

  • They study part time, and they work part time as well.

  • A 24-year old coming through this program now had a couple of years on the floor.

  • How much money are they making?

  • They are in the 50 or 60,000 a year range.

  • They have full paid health insurance, they have a 401(k) program.

  • And no student debt? They have vacation paid.And no student debt.

  • Managing a job and an education leaves little room for the social aspect of a typical four-year on campus experience.

  • But the financial benefits give the apprentices an advantage over their peers.

  • Most kids are going through school thinking how am I going to borrow more money?

  • You can buy a car. Oh, yeah.

  • Actually, what I`m doing is, I`m trying to actually save up for a house,

  • so - I can move out and be on my own, which not a lot of 21-year olds can say, oh yeah, I got this house.

  • The more you look into it, you`re like oh man, this is so much more than just a ticket through college.

  • This is like the life. This is a career you can build off of.

  • Lot of church services last about an hour with the sermon included.

  • Not this one. A pastor in Florida was going for the Guinness world record for longest speech ever.

  • And after 53 hours and 18 minutes and around 45 combined sermons,

  • he got it. 31-year old Zack Zender (ph) was only allowed a five minute break every hour.

  • And he didn`t just take home a record, he raised money for a group that helps people overcome drug addictions.

  • One thing no one needed to shout when they got the record: speech:

  • he was never at a loss for words, gave everyone something to talk about

  • and left lesser speakers speechless even as he went sleepless.

  • I`m Carl Azuz and I`ll talk back at you tomorrow.
