  • Breaking news: Fridays are awesome!

  • Happy to have you watching this last Friday in March. I'm Carl Azuz.

  • First up, a battle for the city of Palmyra.

  • We reported on it before. It's an ancient landmark in central Syria.

  • The ISIS terrorist group took over Palmyra last year

  • and it destroyed a pair of 2,000-year-old temples there

  • because ISIS believed they conflicted with the group's severe interpretation of Islam.

  • ISIS has used the city for mass executions

  • but now, Syrian government troops are battling to take Palmyra back.

  • They've been helped by Russian airstrikes.

  • But the troop's progress into the city is slow,

  • because ISIS fighters reportedly leave mines in places where they retreat.

  • Palmyra is a strategically important place, capturing it could hinder the movement of ISIS.

  • U.S.-led airstrikes continue to target the terrorists in other parts of Syria.

  • Officials from the World Health Organization say no one knows

  • how far the Zika virus will spread worldwide.

  • A new study suggests it might have gotten to Brazil in 2013.

  • There are now thousands of suspected cases there, hundreds in the U.S.

  • And the virus has spread as far away as Australia,

  • as some Australians who travelled to the Caribbean

  • and other Zika affected areas have returned home with the virus.

  • It’s particularly dangerous for pregnant women, though Zika threatens others as well.

  • The mosquito that spreads it is found in areas where more than half the global population lives.

  • Zika, a virus unheard of 70 years ago, is exploding around the planet,

  • creating what the World Health Organization calls a global health emergency.

  • Common symptoms include fever, rash, headaches and red eyes.

  • If there are any symptoms at all. Four out of five people who get Zika don’t even know it.

  • Zika is spread primarily by the female Aedes Aegypti mosquito.

  • She’s called the roach of the mosquito world,

  • due to her crafty ways of hiding and breeding inside homes,

  • making her hard to find and eliminate.

  • Zika is also been linked to Guillain-Barre,

  • a rare auto immune disorder that can lead to paralysis.

  • But what makes Zika really scary is an alarming connection between the virus and microcephaly.

  • That's a neurological disorder where babies are born with small heads and small brains,

  • with severe developmental issues, even death.

  • Some countries are so concerned. They are warning women not to get pregnant.

  • While in the United States, CDC officials are telling pregnant women

  • not to travel to any of the countries where Zika is circulating.

  • Scientists are working around the clock to attack the virus.

  • But as of yet, there’s no vaccine, or medicine to treat Zika.

  • So, protect yourself by using and reapplying insect repellant,

  • wearing thick long sleeve shorts and pants,

  • and staying inside in screened air-conditioning rooms and areas where Zika is active,

  • and be sure to remove any standing water where mosquitoes can breed.

  • Checking in now with U.S. presidential nomination process.

  • Voters in more than of U.S. states have had their say.

  • For the Democrats so far, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads with

  • 1,229 pledged delegates and 482 super delegates.

  • Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has won 924 pledged delegates and 27 super delegates.

  • For the Republicans so far, businessman Donald Trump leads with 741 delegates,

  • Texas Senator Ted Cruz has won 461 delegates, and Ohio Governor John Kasich has 145.

  • At the party conventions this summer,

  • these delegates are expected to vote for the candidates who won them.

  • But if a candidate doesn’t win enough delegates

  • to clinch his or her party’s nomination before that, a brokered or contested convention is possible.

  • Things could be wild pretty fast and let me explain how that might be the case.

  • Let’s imagine we have a state out there that is a winner-take-all state,

  • that it went to Donald Trump and all of the people there are bound delegates.

  • Meaning on the first ballot, they must cast their vote for Donald Trump,

  • no matter what their personal feelings are.

  • On the next ballot, if he does not get the magic number then,

  • about half the people in this hall, a little bit more, will become unbound,

  • and they won’t have to vote as their state voted and on subsequent ballots,

  • even more become unbound until virtually everyone here can vote as they please.

  • Then, in our mythical state, we may find that actual Trump supporters comprise

  • only eight of the 20 delegates and maybe there are some people here who support Ted Cruz,

  • maybe some who support John Kasich.

  • And if these people start wheeling and dealing, and for argument’s sake,

  • Cruz that they choose, you could find that in this state, 12 people could go to Ted Cruz,

  • 12 delegates and only eight for Donald Trump, even though he won the state.

  • And you can bet if that happens, there will be a lot of sharp words and debates

  • going on on the convention floor.

  • From Atlantic to Pacific, gee, this "Roll Call" is terrific.

  • Let’s get down to business and see who’s watching.

  • James F. Doughty School is with us today.

  • From Bangor, Maine, the Pine Street, hello to the Bulldogs.

  • Moving out west to Arizona, Mountain View High School is on the city of Mesa.

  • It’s great to have the Toros along today.

  • And crossing the Pacific, we arrive in China.

  • Hangzhou International School is there. Theyre watching in Hangzhou.

  • At a restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio,

  • there’s a non-profit program that gives workers free training every week.

  • Though there’s a zero tolerance policy when it comes to violence or drugs,

  • students there get paid, they get help finding counseling and housing,

  • and according to the program’s founders, there’s an incredibly high success rate.

  • It’s a character study in second chances.

  • I was out of jail.

  • Everyday, you wake up and it was like, youre not going to be nothing.

  • No one’s going to hire you. You got felonies.

  • I gave my time. I want to move on. I want to go forward.

  • I was trying to find employment, but with felony that I caught,

  • it just, I couldn’t really get hired anywhere.

  • I was a reckless teenager, and one night, I was arrested and thrown in jail.

  • Fortunately, I had a judge who gave me a break.

  • Everyone deserves a fair and equal second chance.

  • At Edwins, you can come to us and start over.

  • It’s a fine dining restaurant. We have a very classic French menu, but also,

  • it’s a free six-month culinary and hospitality training program.

  • Were doing with a carrot, OK?

  • My left hand moves and my right hand follows.

  • What we try to do here is teach those fundamentals.

  • Keeping close the blade -- here you go.

  • All our students here are formerly incarcerated, or had a brush with the law, like myself.

  • What’s the big difference between California, Pinot Noir and Burgundy?

  • They expect us to work really hard, but they gave a sense of purpose.

  • Nobody even mentions the birthday, that’s upsetting to me.

  • This is somewhere I belong, the people who need me somewhere.

  • My value did not decrease, because I have a record.

  • You can overcome a hard challenge here at Edwins. It gives you confidence.

  • They say I make the best, but no applause around.

  • Were here because we want to see them succeed.

  • I’m here, I’ m doing and I’m going to finish and I’m going to live out.

  • To have second chances, to have a new life.

  • If youre ready to work hard, you can change your status.

  • All dogs are known for panting. This one is known for painting.

  • His owner who’s also an artist was doing her thing one day

  • when her three-year-old pet nudge her.

  • She asked if he wanted to paint, he wagged harder.

  • So, now, she sets him up with some nontoxic colors,

  • a paint brush attached to a paper towel tube, and lets him captain a canvas.

  • Not sure how he feels about the beret and scarf,

  • but the artistic animal’s abstractions sell for as much as $200.

  • The proceeds are going to help other dogs.

  • They call him a regular dog Vinci. But don’t think other breeds couldn’t compete.

  • Consider this Chagall-den retriever, the Matisse-ian, the Viscian Freda,

  • the Chihua Warhol, the Basquiat hound, the Se-rottweiler,

  • the Laso Piccaso, the Callivaggio, and, of course, the great Michael Newfoundlangelo.

  • I’m Carl Azuz, brushing up on my puns.
