  • Welcome to commercial-free CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz.

  • We`ve got a story related to Earth Day coming up this April 22.

  • First up, though, the U.S. is deploying warships to the waters near Yemen.

  • The Middle Eastern country has been at civil war since Houthi rebels took over Yemeni government buildings earlier this year.

  • International officials say the Houthis are supported by Iran and Iran is believed to be sending a convoy of several ships to Yemen, ships that some officials suspect may be carrying weapons to the Houthis.

  • Nine vessels from the U.S. Navy, along with ships from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and others, are monitoring the waters near Yemen.

  • They`re prepared to intercept the Iranian ships, if necessary.

  • An Iranian Naval official says Iran`s ships in the area are there legally to fight piracy and protect commerce.

  • All this is raising tensions between the U.S. and Iran weeks after an international agreement was announced concerning Iran`s controversial nuclear program.

  • Next today, from the presidential palace to prison -- Egypt`s former leader has received a 20-year jail sentence.

  • In 2012, Mohamed Morsy became Egypt`s first democratically elected president.

  • He`s a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a religious and political group which many Egyptians feared was trying to dominate the Egyptian government.

  • Late in 2012, protests began against then President Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood.

  • Morsy and 14 others on trial were accused of inciting violence and torturing the protesters in December of 2012.

  • The defendants were all found guilty of that, but acquitted of murder charges in some of the protesters` deaths.

  • Morsy was overthrown in a military coup in July of 2013.

  • Yesterday`s sentence came in one of several cases he`s standing trial in.

  • All right, one famous brand you won`t find in U.S. stores right now, Blue Bell.

  • The maker of ice cream, frozen yogurt and other frozen desserts has voluntarily recalled all of its products.

  • Health officials say three people have died and five have gotten sick from listeria.

  • It`s a type of bacteria that, in these cases, might have come from Blue Bell products.

  • Those affected were in Kansas and Texas.

  • The company made gradual recalls in recent weeks.

  • It says it decided to recall everything when listeria was found in different places in different plants.

  • Blue Bell says it`s not sure exactly how listeria got into its facilities,

  • but the company is planning new cleaning methods, training methods and testing methods to improve food safety.

  • So what`s listeria and how does it get you sick?

  • Listeria gets its name from English surgeon, Dr. Joseph Lister.

  • he`s famous for introducing sterilization into surgery.

  • The mouthwash, Listerine, is also named after Dr. Lister.

  • Listeria is a serious infection.

  • It`s usually cautioned by eating food contaminated with the bacterium.

  • Listeria monocytogenes and it`s deadly.

  • About 1,600 cases of listeriosis are reported in the United States every year.

  • And about one in five people with the infection die.

  • If you have listeria, a doctor will prescribe antibiotics.

  • So who`s more at risk?

  • At least 90 percent of people who get these infections are pregnant women, babies, he elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

  • To prevent it, doctors recommend thoroughly cooking meat, thoroughly cleaning raw fruits and vegetables and washing hands, utensils and countertops after handling uncooked foods.

  • Do not drink unpasteurized milk or eat foods that contain unpasteurized milk.

  • Rolling your way next, the CNN STUDENT NEWS Roll Call.

  • We`re visiting Milton, Delaware today.

  • It`s where The Vikings are setting sail from Mariner Middle School.

  • Traveling down the East Coast, we come to South Carolina.

  • It`s great to see The Patriots in The Palmetto State.

  • They`re watching at Powdersville High School in Greeneville.

  • And south through the Caribbean, we arrive in Honduras.

  • Hello all of our viewers at Esuela Internacional Sampedrana.

  • It`s in San Pedro Sula.

  • In the U.S. and several other countries, Earth Day is marked every year on April 22,

  • though some nations celebrate it on the vernal equinox, the first day of spring.

  • It started in 1970, the same year that The Clean Air and Endangered Species Acts were passed by Congress.

  • The focus is on the environment, conserving what we have, protecting plants, animals and land for future generations

  • and on finding ways to make better and broader use of renewable resources.

  • President Obama plans to discuss the issue of climate change and he`s headed to Florida`s Everglades to do it.

  • The marshy region, the so-called river of grass, covers thousands of square miles in Southern Florida.

  • Out of all of the locations we went for "The Wonder List," the Everglades, to me, was the most surprising.

  • Lemony fresh. Put that in your water.

  • This is cleaner than mom`s kitchen.

  • Half the Everglades is dead, essentially.

  • It was diked and diverted and ditched back in the `50s and even sooner to try to turn Florida into this paradise we -- we know and love and our grandmas live.

  • And the other half is sort of on life support and -- and it really comes down to getting the right amount of clean, fresh water to the right places at the right time.

  • And what makes it so unique that it`s -- it`s contained in Florida. It`s contained in one state.

  • If the state of Florida can`t pull this off, no one can.

  • There is only one Everglades and when it`s gone, it is gone.

  • And seven million people depend on that water in those aquifer, so it`s not about saving gators and baby otters,

  • it`s -- it`s about all of us.

  • It`s also cultural, too, Bill.

  • You know, when we -- when we talk about our national identity, we think of wilderness areas, we

  • -- we typically think of Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone and these -- these other awe-inspiring landscapes.

  • But the Everglades is every bit of -- as emblematic of -- of our national identity as any of these other areas.

  • I just hope that people can connect with that and can identify with it and can also learn to embrace it because,

  • you know, we need it. It`s who we are. It`s very American.

  • If you have a car, you know that fixing them is not cheap

  • and that a breakdown can be financially devastating for people living from paycheck to paycheck.

  • At age 38, a woman named Kathy Heying decided to do something about that.

  • She`d ultimately found The Lift, a non-profit garage that makes car repairs affordable.

  • There was a problem, though. Heying knew nothing about fixing cars.

  • I had been a delivery driver coming up on a year now.

  • Having a car problem just brings a lot of stress.

  • I`m definitely worried about my safety.

  • Having two daughters, it just really heightened the situation.

  • I was a social worker for 15 years.

  • I kept seeing people struggling with making ends meet.

  • One car repair can upset the entire apple cart.

  • I just kept thinking, why isn`t somebody doing something about this?

  • And then one day it occurred to me, oh, dang,

  • I think that somebody might be me.

  • I did not grow up working on cars.

  • So I ended up getting a degree in auto technology.

  • ...the car smell it.

  • Does it get worse when you turn on the heat?

  • How we`re different than a regular garage is that people have to meet certain income requirements.

  • I was quoted close to $1,400.

  • We charge the customer $15 an hour for labor.

  • The market rate was about $100 an hour.

  • We don`t do any mark-up on the parts.

  • You get a hug.

  • Did I fix everything?

  • It`s just a lot of weight off my shoulders.

  • Thanks. Take care.

  • It`s about moving people forward and moving their lives forward.

  • American athlete Tim Tebow is a Heisman Trophy winner, an NFL quarterback, a national sportscaster,

    美籍運動員 Tim Tebow 為海斯曼獎(美式足球獎項)的得獎者、超級盃的四分衛、運動播報員,

  • and now his likeness is on a pretzel, or imitated on a pretzel, or shaped in a pretzel.


  • It`s claiming this has me all twisted up.


  • Tebow signed with the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this week.

    Tebow 在這週稍早時已經和費城老鷹簽約了

  • So to welcome him, a Philadelphia pretzel shop shaped up and baked up some pretzels of Tim Tebow Tebowing.

    為了歡迎他的到來,費城有家脆餅店為他特製了專屬 Tim Tebow 的脆餅

  • The shop reportedly sent some to the team, as well.


  • How do they do it?


  • Well, they just tied to pretzel in Tebow.

    這個嘛,他們只是把脆餅弄成 Tebow 的樣子

  • The shop says their pret- selling pretty well and at a dollar each.


  • They don`t cost a lot of bread.


  • In fact, for $1.25, you can get your quarter back.

    事實上,付了一塊兩毛五,你還能拿回你最愛的四分衛(quarter = 四分衛 = 兩毛五)

  • I`m Carl Azuz for CNN Student News

    我是CNN Student News 的 Carl Azuz

  • and it`s time for us to take a hike.
