  • Hey everyone great to see you this Wednesday.

  • We're starting with news of a leadership change in Canada.

  • The country's a parliamentary democracy.

  • Its head of state,

  • the Prime Minister is the leader of whichever political party

  • wins the most seats in a national election.

  • There's no term limit on how long the Prime Minister can serve,

  • so conservative party leader Stephen Harper,

  • who's been in power since 2006, was hoping to stay there.

  • But, in Monday's vote Canadians gave a majority to Canada's liberal party.

  • It's led by this man,

  • Justin Trudeau and he'll become Canada's next Prime Minister.

  • Trudeau is the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau,

  • who served on and off from the 1960s through the 1980s.

  • In land area, Canada's the second largest country in the world.

  • But with 35 million people,

  • its population's only a fraction of that of its border country, the US.

  • The leader of the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki- moon

  • arrived in the Middle Eastern city of Jerusalem yesterday.

  • He's there to try to calm things down between Palestinians and Israelis.

  • Since October 1st, Palestinians say that

  • 45 members of their community have been killed by Israeli forces in Jerusalem.

  • And in the Palestinian territories of West Bank and Gaza.

  • Israelis say that seven members of their community

  • have been killed by Palestinians using knives, guns and cars.

  • And UN Secretary Ban says the two sides stand on the brink

  • of another catastrophic period of violence.

  • Well the conflict has been going on for over a 100 years.

  • As for this current wave of violence, what depends on who you ask.

  • Israeli officials accuse Palestinian leaders of inciting hatred

  • and violence against Israel,

  • encouraging lone wolf style attacks via social media

  • on Israeli soldiers and citizens.

  • Palestinians leaders blame Israelis.

  • They point to the Israeli occupation that's been in place for almost 50 years.

  • They say Israeli police are too quick to use lethal force.

  • They also point to restrictions on the holy site

  • known to Muslims as The Noble Sanctuary

  • and to Jews as The Temple Mount.

  • They say that Israel is violating the status quo.

  • The status quo is an agreed upon understanding that governs the site.

  • Which is the third holiest site in Islam,

  • and the most holy site in Judaism.

  • It says Jews can visit the site at certain times,

  • but they can't pray there,

  • which angers some Israelis who want greater access.

  • Palestinians oppose that.

  • They use the site for worship,

  • and they say the increasing pace of visits from the Israeli far right angers them.

  • Palestinians are also alarmed by some right wing Israeli's

  • who say they wanna construct a third temple at the site.

  • At the moment, Israeli and Palestinians leaders are blaming each other.

  • Neither side has been able to calm things

  • behind the scenes they are talking

  • but for now it seems that the voices of outrage

  • and anger on the street are drowning out any political dialogue.

  • Okay. Here's a bit of US trivia.

  • Which state became the seventh to join the union on April 28th 1788?

  • We'll give you a hint, it's Maryland. It's where we're happy to be part of your day

  • at Hyattsville Middle School with the Hawks of Hyattsville.

  • Up next, Queen Creek, a town in south central Arizona,

  • hello to the Sabercats watching at San Tan Foothills High School.

  • And in Eastern Europe,

  • hello to our viewers in Gimnazjum number five.

  • It's in a city in southern Poland.

  • A change to tell you about in the 2016 US presidential race.

  • Jim Webb served as secretary of the NAVY as a Republican,

  • more recently he represented Virginia as a US Senator and a Democrat.

  • He was seeking the Democratic Party's nomination for president.

  • But Webb was having trouble gaining ground in the polls

  • and he bowed out of the Democratic race yesterday.

  • Though he said he may still run as an independent.

  • His decision leaves four Democrats still officially in the race.

  • On the Republican side, 15 people are seeking the GOP nomination.

  • Time for the shoutout.

  • Ellen Church is famous for being the first woman to hold what job?

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

  • Is it A ) pilot, B ) flight attendant, C ) war correspondent, or D ) US Senator.

  • You've go three seconds, go!

  • Ellen Church as a licensed pilot and a nurse,

  • but she made history as the first female flight attendant in 1930.

  • That's your answer. And that's your shout out.

  • Church convinced the airlines to hire nurses for the job

  • saying their presence would help relax nervous passengers.

  • Of course, planes were a lot less save in 1930.

  • It was just 27 years after the Wright brothers made the first powered flight.

  • Today's technology has helped make it an entirely different experience.

  • Progress sometimes has its downsides though.

  • A report by air safety experts two years ago found

  • that pilots were so dependent on technology

  • that they didn't have good basic flying skills.

  • But if everything works as it should.

  • This is our innovation hub. This is where big ideas come.

  • Turn left heading two four zero. And you just turn.

  • You control the aircraft with voice. So cool.

  • Here at Rockwell Collins,

  • we got a sneak peek at the flight deck of the future.

  • Advancements that will affect millions of airplane passengers for decades to come.

  • Making airplanes easier to fly, more efficient, and ultimately safer.

  • My name's Geoffrey Shapiro,

  • I design the displays and controls that are up in the flight deck

  • Jeff showed us their concept flight deck,

  • a simulator designed to help perfect near market technologies.

  • First up, synthetic vision,

  • a technology that allows pilots to see through clouds.

  • Synthetic vision is a virtual version of the world.

  • And you can see here, here's our mountains.

  • Now if I look out the window here, I can't see any there, all I see is clouds.

  • I see the same information that you see here on this device,

  • the heads up display.

  • It's a transparent display with virtual information painted on it right in front of me.

  • It looks a little bit like a video game in fact.

  • If you're in a cloud, you don't see the runway.

  • Through this synthetic version of the world I see the runway,

  • and I can't see through this window at all.

  • That means fewer delays and fewer headaches for you, the passenger.

  • Synthetic vision and heads- up displays are already

  • used on various aircraft in the industry.

  • And soon virtual mapping will include interactive maps of airport runways.

  • You don't want to hit another airplane.

  • Our technology here lets you know where you are and where you need to go.

  • There really aren't any products out there right now

  • that will paint your taxi path on there.

  • To think that turn by turn directions are cutting edge is a little baffling,

  • considering the every day GPS devices in our cars.

  • But flight deck technology's come a long way.

  • They had more than two crew members back in the day.

  • If you look at the evolution of technology integration in the flight deck,

  • it's exponential. We're living in a very exciting time.

  • Nowhere is this more apparent then in the Advanced Technology Center,

  • where engineers test ideas

  • that won't see the market for another 10 years, if ever.

  • LIke touchscreen piloting.

  • If I wanna change air speed, there it is, I changed it.

  • Altitude, heading.

  • And soon, pilots may be able to fly simply with their voices.

  • Climb and maintain flight level two one zero.

  • Climb and maintain flight level two one zero.

  • I told it one thing. In a real system, that actually takes three controls to do.

  • They can account for different grammar, syntax and even different accents.

  • Please stay under 6000. Understand 6000.

  • As flight deck technology continues to advance,

  • one can only ask, will we even need pilots in the future.

  • The technology is there.

  • I think it's going to be a while before the public will accept

  • and have faith in that technology.

  • That probably means they won't be letting me fly anytime soon.

  • Whoa! We try everything here to find out what fits aviation.

  • We don't know until we try. Gear up.

  • Where's Waldo? He's easy to spot at this event in Colorado.

  • He's all over the place!

  • Thousands of Waldos recently suited up for a race in Colorado Springs.

  • They weren't just there to see and be seen.

  • The event raised money for a place named Waldo Canyon,

  • which was badly damaged by a fire in 2012.

  • The annual Waldo Waldo Run has brought thousands of dollars in recovery.

  • Anyone can participate, and it's only a 5k race.

  • So not much chance of runners hitting the wall, though.

  • Many people were there to book it,

  • they were on foot, so there were no cartoons.

  • And even though their looks pretty much ran the same,

  • it brought together folks of all different stripes.

  • I'm Carl Azuz, and I've run out of puns.

Hey everyone great to see you this Wednesday.
