  • CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR: Today`s edition of CNN STUDENT NEWS begins with two tragedies involving school violence.

  • There are seven schools in Danvers, Massachusetts.

  • Yesterday, officials closed all of them.

  • That happened after the body of Colleen Ritzer, a math teacher at Danvers High School was found in the woods behind the school.

  • A 14-year old has been charged with the murder.

  • Students describe Ritzer as an excellent teacher who wanted to help anyone in any way she could.

  • The school said Danvers will feel this loss for many years.

  • The news from Massachusetts came two days after a shooting at a middle school in Nevada.

  • Authorities say a 12- year old wounded two students and shot and killed a teacher before killing himself.

  • Police officials say the teacher, Mike Landsberry, appeared to be trying to stop the incident when he was shot.

  • They described what he did as heroic, walking toward the shooter and giving other students the chance to get away.

  • Many of your schools have plans for dealing with violence.

  • You might have practiced lockdown drills.

  • Stories like this aren`t easy to talk about, if you do want to talk about school violence, there is a post on our blog for you to do that.

  • Students 13 and older can go to cnnstudentnews.com.

  • Teachers, we`ve also included questions in today`s daily curriculum to help you address tough topics like this in your classrooms.

  • ANNOUNCER: Is this legit?

  • The U.S. Surgeon General runs the Health and Human Services Department.

  • Nope, not true.

  • The Surgeon General is in the department, but it`s run by the Health and Human Services Secretary.

  • AZUZ: That position is part of the president`s cabinet.

  • Right now, it`s filled by Kathleen Sebelius, she was nominated by President Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate,

  • but now Secretary Sebelius is facing some tough criticism.

  • As the head of the HHS Department, she helps create and implement the president`s health policies.

  • That includes the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

  • In Monday show, we talked about some of the problems with the Obamacare website, CNN asked Secretary Sebelius about the plans to get it fixed.

  • DR. SANJAY GUPTA, CHIEF MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT: What can we tell people, because I mean there is -- there is a bit of a loss of confidence in this,

  • so if you say as quickly as possible, that meant October 1st.

  • KATHLEEN SEBELIUS, HHS SECRETARY: Well, what we can tell you, is that it isn`t where it needs to be.

  • We are three weeks into a 26th week open enrollment period.

  • People are enrolling every day.

  • Not as many as we would like, not at the volume we would like and we will keep working on it until it is working as efficiently as possible.

  • GUPTA: The president`s legacy is part of this whole issue as well.

  • I mean has it been tarnished by what has happened.

  • SEBELIUS: I think that what we need to do is -- is see the enrollment figures at the end of March of 2014.

  • That`s when open enrollment ends,

  • and what I know from what we are seeing in not only states that are run by the federal website, but states around the country, is that the interest is huge,

  • that people are eager to have this affordable product and that the product is there.

  • Insurance companies have to compete for one another, for people`s business, for the first time.

  • ANNOUNCER: It`s time for the "Shoutout."

  • Which of these organizations was founded almost immediately after World War II ended?

  • Is it the Red Cross? League of Nations, Organization of Petroleum Exploring Countries or the United Nations?

  • You`ve got three seconds, go!

  • The United Nations was established the month after World War II ended in 1945.

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

  • AZUZ: It happened on this day, October 24th.

  • That`s when the United Nations charter, originally signed by 51 countries, went into effect.

  • The United Nations isn`t an independent government, it`s an organization, and today 193 countries are members.

  • In honor of U.N. Day, here is a little more about the organization.

  • How it works, and how it keeps up with the times.

  • OMAR JIMENEZ, CNN CORRESPONDENT: It`s the United Nations, meeting place for the most of the world`s countries from the most powerful, such as the United States, China and Russia to the smallest and most vulnerable.

  • For 68 years, the U.N. has been involved in everything, from assisting refugees to negotiating peace among nations.

  • The top officials is the Secretary General, a position currently held by Ban Ki-moon of South Korea.

  • The SG serves five year terms and Ban is in his second go around.

  • Of all the languages in the world, the U.N. uses six to communicate:

  • Al-Arabiya, Chongqing (ph), English, Francais, Ruskiy and Espaniol.

  • In some combination of those six, the U.N. deliberates on global issues.

  • For judicial matters, they look to the International Court of Justice.

  • The Economic and Social Council, otherwise known as ECOSOC, deals with -- you guessed it -- the world`s economic Social and environmental issues.

  • The Trusteeship Council helps countries becomes self-governed and independent,

  • while the secretariat, another part of the U.N. family, tackles day to day issues that include keeping the press informed.

  • Where I`m standing is one of the more recognizable places in the U.N.: the Security Council.

  • It determines threats to international peace and works to solve those problems right here in this chamber.

  • A gift from Norway in 1952.

  • And on top of that, this council selects the Secretary General.

  • Who was then formally appointed by the General Assembly, the main representative body of the U.N.

  • The G.A., as it`s called, meets from September to December every year, but the world`s problems don`t exactly follow the calendar.

  • The U.N. has to operate year round, and one of the ways they are staying current, is through social media.

  • The organization`s Facebook page provides updates on everything U.N. to an audience of almost 600,000 people.

  • On Twitter, the U.N. has over 1.7 million followers and over 21,000 tweets.

  • And you can follow the organization in any of its official languages.

  • So, if you`re posting about the U.N. on Facebook or Twitter, and you want to sound smart for all of your followers,

  • here is an inside tip: the six main bodies of the U.N. are called the principal organs, as referred to in Chapter Three, article 7 of the U.N. Charter.

  • So, year, to impress somebody.

  • For CNN, I`m Omar Jimenez, United Nations.

  • AZUZ: All right, school administrators in Aledo, Texas, are hoping the high school football team is placed in a different district next year,

  • so that they can play against tougher competition.

  • Aledo`s last opponent probably hopes so, too.

  • Losing isn`t` fun, losing big doesn`t necessarily make it any better.

  • But can a blowout be considered bullying? Watch this.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Running the ball into the end zone, Aledo`s Bear Cast (ph) Friday made one touchdown after another, winning their game 91 to nothing.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That`s a cremation, that`s about that is.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I wish at some point, they could just OK, game over, why even finish it?

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: A parent for the opposing team Fort Worth Western Hills considered it more than just a painful loss.

  • Aledo IST says he found an official complaint online against its entire coaching stuff for bullying.

  • Suggesting they should have instructed their team to ease up.

  • COACH TIM BUCHANAN, ALEDO HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL COACH: I would never ask our kids not to play hard.

  • I would never tell them -- now, go out there, and let them score.

  • You know, that`s -- that`s not what you want to teach kids.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Coach Tim Buchanan says by half-time, he was actively trying to keep the score down,

  • something in backup players letting the clock run, and instructing players to make fair catch calls.

  • BUCHANAN: You don`t want to embarrass. I mean I`ve been on the other side of those scores.

  • In 2011, 62 points on us. That doesn`t feel good. It doesn`t make your kids feel good.

  • DEREK CITTY, ALEDO SUPERINTENTDENT: I have to do an investigation to make sure there is not any illegitimacy to it.

  • BUCHANAN: Superintendent Derek City says the district is following the same procedure it does with all bullying complaint.

  • But he says for now, he`s confident his coaches acted appropriately.

  • BUCHANAN: There was nothing unfair about it other than the fact that our players were better than their players.

  • AZUZ: Some students at Western Hills, the losing school, say the lopsided loss stings, other say the blowout is being blown out of proportion.

  • We want to hear what you say. If you`re already on Facebook, the place to talk about it is Facebook.com/cnnstudentnews.

  • Mascots and schools in today`s "Roll Call" are absolutely awesomely alliterative. Let`s go to the map.

  • Exhibit A, the Alma Erdales from Alma High, in Alma Arkansas.

  • Out in (inaudible), Utah, the Davis Darts are checking out CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • And the East from Rockford, Illinois, round out today`s "Roll Call" list.

  • If you start getting a little dizzy watching this, imagine how Mikayla Clark feels.

  • She started practicing at the beginning of the football season, and at the homecoming game,

  • she unleashed her performance 34 seconds, 44 back handsprings.

  • At point, it almost likes she was speeding up as she went.

  • Her record breaking turn beat the old mark by eight handsprings.

  • We don`t have enough time to show you every single one, but I`m sure you can guess how her team (inaudible) when she finished.

  • They totally flipped out.

  • That kind of talent, you can start a handspring revolution, but I`m sure she`ll keep her feet on the ground and not let this newfound fame spin out of control.

  • It`s time for us to go, but we`ll wind our way back tomorrow.

  • With more CNN STUDENT NEWS.
