  • One day from Friday. You`ve landed on CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. It`s good to see you this March 5th.

  • The trial has begun for a man accused in the 2013 terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon.

  • It happened near the finish line on April 15th.

  • Three people were killed when two bombs went off.

  • and more than 260 were injured, many losing limbs.

  • An MIT police officer was also killed three days after the bombings,

  • as two suspects, brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, allegedly ran from police.

  • Tamerlan was then killed in a gun battle and Dzhokhar was arrested.

  • His defense attorney says he did it, everything he`s accused of.

  • The prosecution and defense agree on the basic facts about the attacks

  • and say that Dzhokhar and Tamerlan carried them out.

  • But while the prosecution says Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had a radical view of Islam,

  • was committed to violence and wanted to kill as many people as possible,

  • he defense argues he was influenced by his older brother to do it.

  • The different arguments matter because the government is seeking the death penalty.

  • One of the hardest questions for our society to answer

  • is when do we put our own citizens to death?

  • When it comes to the death penalty,

  • we`re all over the place.

  • As a very general proposition, capital crimes are usually reserved for murder,

  • and not just murder, but murder plus some additional facts

  • that make it particularly egregious.

  • But even that`s not an absolute rule.

  • Sometimes, as in the case of felony murder,

  • a capital crime is when an unintentional killing results

  • during an inherently dangerous felony.

  • Suppose you and a friend rob a bank,

  • but your friend loses it. You know, you`ve seen that movie.

  • It`s always the friends that loses it and shoots the clerk.

  • Well, you can be responsible for that murder,

  • even though you never pulled the trigger and you never intended for anyone to get hurt.

  • Capital crimes are defined differently from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

  • Some states don`t have the death penalty at all.

  • But federal crimes may surprise you.

  • Some federal capital crimes don`t even require a victim to be killed.

  • You can be put to death for espionage and crimes like treason.

  • Perhaps the most famous example is Julius and Ethel Rosenberg,

  • who were convicted as spies and both executed, husband and wife.

  • The interesting thing is because federal courts do have the death penalty,

  • it can be said that there doesn`t exist a non-death penalty state.

  • So, for example, in Massachusetts, the state may not have the death penalty,

  • but the federal government does.

  • And that`s why someone like the Boston bomber can be prosecuted in federal court

  • and put to death for crimes and a trial that existed completely in Massachusetts.

  • Ultimately, it might be really difficult to articulate a rule.

  • Whether or not to even seek the death penalty is usually discretionary. You might think all this inconsistency is a bad thing. But maybe it isn`t. No two crimes are exactly alike. And in a li

  • You might think all this inconsistency is a bad thing.

  • But maybe it isn`t. No two crimes are exactly alike.

  • And in a life or death situation,

  • maybe prosecutors need discretion and maybe the courts do, too.

  • Time for the Shoutout.

  • A 22-year-old is considered to be part of which generation?

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

  • Is it millennials, baby boomers, silent generation or Generation X?

  • You`ve got three seconds.

  • People born in the 1980s or `90s are generally considered to be millennials.

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

  • OK, so it`s the generation born after 1980 to either late baby boomers or early Gen Xers.

  • Last year, Pew Research reported that millennials have less money

  • than the generations before them,

  • but they`re more optimistic about having it in the future.

  • Politically, they say they`re more independent than their predecessors

  • and they`re less likely to describe themselves as patriotic

  • than Gen Xers or baby boomers.

  • Millennials are the most racially diverse generation in U.S. history.

  • Their shared expertise with technology is something that separates them in the U.S. workforce.

  • The millennial mind set is different from any generation before.

  • Sometimes people don`t understand like that, you know,

  • work is what you do and not necessarily who you are.

  • People in Generation Y have been told that they can be whatever they want to be

  • and they can do whatever they want to do since they were kids.

  • The goal is to be happy, to find meaning.

  • And they`re figuring that out as they go.

  • Life coach Christine Hassler is advising them on how to manage their money.

  • She`s an expert on millennials.

  • And Hassler says she`s constantly surprised by their potential.

  • The way they think and the way they communicate is completely different.

  • They move at a much faster speed mentally than any other generation before.

  • They are amazing learners. Millennials can go in and learn anything very, very quick.

  • Their brain is very adaptable.

  • Change doesn`t scare them as much as other generations

  • because they had to learn something new every day.

  • So what makes them different?

  • Millennials are the first generation to have always had the Internet,

  • which has transformed the way people network and socialize.

  • I can`t live without my iPhone. I just -- I feel naked if I don`t have it on me.

  • This constant plugged in life has its drawbacks for these millennials.

  • They come in and they get this reputation of being entitled or being

  • -- multi-tasking too much or not knowing how to communicate

  • with older members of the generation -- of -- with older generations,

  • because they just rely on technology much more than a Gen Xer or a baby boomer would.

  • At work, millennials are increasingly coveted as employees.

  • More and more businesses want to tap into their expertise and drive.

  • They`re the new marketplace, they`re the new brains.

  • They come with all the social media tools and tricks embedded in them as natives.

  • Still, these are challenging times.

  • According to a recent United Nations report,

  • some 75 million youths globally now find themselves without work.

  • The numbers speak for themselves.

  • It is extraordinary the optimism that millennials can bring

  • to the most challenging of situations.

  • A lot of the jobs that our parents` generation, you know,

  • worked won`t exist anymore, but it`s also exciting,

  • because it means we get to invent new careers.

  • True millennials are not revolutionaries.

  • They don`t want to tear down the system. Oh, no, this generation just wants to run it. Richard Quest, CNN, London.

  • The Sibuyan Sea is in the Philippines.

  • It was the site of a World War II battle in October, 1944,

  • when U.S. planes dropped torpedoes and bombs on the Musashi,

  • a Japanese warship.

  • More than 1,300 of its sailors were picked up by other Japan ships,

  • but many others were lost, as was the Musashi itself, until now,

  • the year of the 70th anniversary of the war`s end.

  • In an astonishing discovery, Microsoft co- founder and philanthropist, Paul Allen,

  • posted photos to Twitter, believed to be one of Japan`s biggest warships, Musashi,

  • once the largest ship in their fleet.

  • After a fierce battle with the U.S. Navy in 1944,

  • the Musashi sunk to the bottom of the ocean,

  • taking with it over 1,000 crew members on board.

  • At the time of its construction, this was the largest warship ever made,

  • displacing 69,000 tons.

  • After eight years of searching, Paul Allen`s team at Vulcan combined historical data

  • with advanced technology to narrow the search area

  • before deploying a Bluefin underwater vehicle

  • to search and later record this extraordinary footage.

  • Before we go, at first glance, it might look like any other island,

  • but the vast majority of its residents have four legs.

  • Japan`s Aoshima Island -- could you call it Meowshima Island?

  • -- is actually nicknamed Cat Island.

  • The cat lovers paradise is overrun by more than 100 felines.

  • Its human population is closer to 22.

  • And though Cat Island has no shops or hotels, yet,

  • ferries regularly bring over tourists. Well why not?

  • It`s just a whisker from the mainland, it`s a great place for cat- panionship,

  • it`s been catapulted into the spotlight for interested pawsons,
