  • A terrorist attack in the city of Jerusalem.

  • That`s where we start this midweek addition of CNN STUDENT NEWS. Thanks for watching.

  • Two Palestinian attackers with a variety of weapons entered a synagogue early Tuesday.

  • They killed four Jewish worshippers before police arrived and killed the two attackers.

  • One police officer was injured and later died.

  • This was the deadliest terrorist attack in Jerusalem since 2008.

  • The city is holy to three major world religions: Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

  • And Jerusalem status is a major point of dispute between Israel and Palestinian Arabs.

  • After the attack, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyuahu called for national unity

  • against the terrorists and against the Palestinian leaders who he says spread lies about Israel.

  • Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas denounced the attack.

  • But when you see news like this it`s disturbing. Where else could this happen?

  • Here is some perspective from CNN`s national security correspondent.

  • I realize we come at you almost every day with a new terrorist threat or an update on an old terrorist threat

  • and I understand how that could be overwhelming.

  • So, I want to talk to you the way I talk to friends and family about what they should truly be concerned about

  • and what they shouldn`t worry about so much, what shouldn`t keep them up at night.

  • Consistently, U.S. intelligence officials and counterterror officials tell me that the two main groups to be worried about are AQAP,

  • this is al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula,a group that`s very skilled and is attempted to get explosive devices onto airplanes.

  • You remember the underwear bomber in 2009.

  • They are still trying and they have a master bomb maker who is very skilled at hiding explosives in things like personal electronic devices.

  • The other group is the Khorasan group, which we just begin to hear about this year.

  • This is an offshoot from al Qaeda, a number of senior al Qaeda leaders

  • who are now basing themselves in Syria, and according to U.S. intelligence,

  • plotting attacks on the U.S. that may be in the final stages.

  • Those are the two main groups and again, like AQAP,

  • their goal is to get explosive devices onto airplanes, possibly bound for the U.S.

  • We`ve talked a lot about ISIS, and ISIS does potentially pose a threat to the U.S. mainland,

  • because it`s done such a good job of attracting foreign fighters to Syria and Iraq

  • and the worry is that those foreign fighters will go home some day and make - carry out terror attacks when they go home,

  • but the best information now is that ISIS is more focused on the fight in Syria and Iraq,

  • so that`s a threat that we may have to face some day,but that is not acute today.

  • Now, beyond AQAP and the Khorasan group,

  • I`m told that the most likely terror attacks to happen on the homeland are so called lone wolves attacks,

  • these are people who are inspired by extremist propaganda and carry out an attack on their own,

  • perhaps with no communication whatsoever with the group back home,

  • whether it`s a Khorasan group or al Qaeda.

  • It makes them harder to track, but it also limits the kinds of attacks that they could carry out,

  • how ambitious they can be, how dangerous they can be.

  • Now, together what this gives the intelligence community to face is a terrorist threat that`s more dispersed,

  • bigger number of groups, more spread out. And therefore more difficult to track,

  • but possibly less ambitions in their attacks than al Qaeda was with particularly the attacks on 9/11.

  • To help you sleep at night, I do want to end on a statistic.

  • This is the total number of terror deaths of Americans on U.S. soil going back to 2009.

  • As you can see, in the single digits except for 2009.

  • That was the attack at Fort Hood in Texas.

  • And I will show you these numbers: this is a number of deaths from lightning strikes in the U.S.

  • Three or four times as many every year than terror attacks

  • and then here deaths from car accidents, many hundreds or even thousands of times more than terror attacks.

  • It`s not to say it`s not a serious threat, terrorism, but statistically,

  • you are very unlikely to be hurt in the terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

  • See if you can I.D. me. I`m an island nation that stretches about 1500 miles.

  • You`ll find me in the Pacific Ocean east of the Korean Peninsula.

  • With more than 37 million people my capital is also the world`s most popular city, Tokyo.

  • I`m Japan, and I have the third largest economy on earth.

  • That`s why it matters, that Japan`s economy has slipped into a recession.

  • It`s so large that experts say it could slow down the global economy.

  • The technical definition for a recession has to do with gross domestic product.

  • When a nation`s GDP decreases for two quarters in a row, it`s in recession.

  • Japan has an incredible amount of national debt.

  • It`s more than twice the size of its economy.

  • To increase the government`s revenue,

  • Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had planned to increase the national sales tax next year

  • , but this week he delayed those plans

  • because a previous increase in sales tax kept people from spending money

  • That was another drag on Japan`s economy.

  • Decreasing wages and aging population,

  • and weak demand for goods and services are also helping keep Japan`s economy from growing.

  • We are snowbmobiling our way across the American north on today`s roll call.

  • In West Allis, Wisconsin, we are recognizing the wild cats of Frank Lloyd Wright Intermediate School.

  • Good to see you.

  • One state west, in a town of Eagan, Minnesota, hello to the panthers.

  • They are watching at Black Hawk Middle School.

  • And in Billings, the biggest city in Montana,we`ve got the golden bears wrapping things up,

  • shoutout to Billings West High School.

  • We`ve talked about how four year college degrees aren`t for everyone,

  • and they don`t all pay off. According to salary.com, degrees in psychology,

  • fine arts and yes, communications, don`t always give you a good return on a college investment.

  • Degrees in tougher fields like chemical engineering can mean a better job with better pay,

  • but few degrees are cheap, so we are continuing our serious on affording higher education by looking at skills specific programs.

  • We are so excited to present you today our new travel app.

  • It`s graduation day at Dev Boot Camp, the end of a 19 week program

  • that turned these students into one of the hottest commodities in the current economy: coders.

  • And so today, it will be (INAUDIBLE) these ideas that they don`t ...

  • For so many years it was the four-year degree,

  • but a lot of people are saying, wait, I need something more.

  • General studies, four years isn`t going to give you an edge in this tech base (INAUDIBLE).

  • If you are going to college to get a job,

  • majority of students graduating from college either wish they attended a different program .

  • Right. Or wished that they had an additional skill set.

  • The traditional four year system, while I really value the social experiences that I have there, didn`t necessarily .

  • You say social, you didn`t say academic.

  • I feel pretty independent (ph) by it.

  • And that was kind of a gap that Dev Bootcamp was here to fill, was to (INAUDIBLE) with the skillset.

  • The things that we pack into 19 weeks here,

  • things you might learn in like two or three or four years in university.

  • At $40,000 a year.

  • Yeah, $40,000 a year.

  • You think this is a good value?

  • The majority of people graduate with jobs that pay on average like 90K or so,

  • for a $12,000 tuition, I think that`s worth it.

  • As student loan debt in America surpasses $1.2 trillion,

  • and millennials account for 40 percent of the nation`s unemployed, skills specific programs

  • like Dev Bootcamp are becoming popular alternatives and add-ons to higher education.

  • Let`s talk about the investment. You know, it`s an investment of time,

  • it`s an investment of money. And we are talking about a cohort

  • that has already invested probably a lot of money in an education.

  • How is this different?

  • We really focus on outcomes, and we focus on students being able to find careers when they finish this.

  • It`s very, very clear that when you finish this program,

  • , the goal is to be able to be a junior web developer.

  • And we get you to that point very quickly,

  • and it`s really clear what you should do next, and how you can get there.

  • My friends from college, the majority of them are unemployed,

  • we all (INAUDIBLE). I have (INAUDIBLE). I don`t know anyone without any debt, personally.

  • I want to take charge of my own education.

  • I knew that if I graduate with a CS degree at university,

  • I would not know any web development.

  • You wanted really just focusing on this.

  • Yeah. And this is what I want to do.

  • So, why I waste my time? Right now, a degree is kind of like a high school diploma.

  • A portfolio means a lot more.

  • If I can show an employer I can build this, and I can do this,

  • then I think that`ll, you know, land (ph) me the job.

  • OK. A company called Hendo claims it`s invented a hoverboard,

  • a real actual board that hovers while you stand on it.

  • Who better to test one out than skateboarding legend Tony Hawk?

  • He recently took a hoverboard for a spin, and a spin, and a spin.

  • He`d showed off both at similarities to and differences from a wheeled skateboard.

  • One big difference is the price.

  • While a traditional board costs around $80 complete, the hoverboard is 10,000,

  • which could leave your head spinning, but if you are bored of your board,

  • you have more than room in board, and you want a board that soars over boards and over floors,

  • a board that hovers covers, floors over witched hovers,

  • , could leave other boarders flawed with their boards a board the floor.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. It`s time to air out.

A terrorist attack in the city of Jerusalem.
