  • It`s May 12. The school year is winding down. CNN STUDENT NEWS is starting up a new week of coverage.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. Thank you for taking ten minutes for us

  • Broadly speaking, a drone can be any unmanned aircraft.

  • It could be something the military uses to spy on potential terrorists, could be the R.C. plane your friend flies on the weekends.

  • The Federal Aviation Administration has a new warning about the dangers of drones,

  • particularly in light of something that happened this March.

  • It apparently involved a remote controlled plane that someone was flying far higher than the legal limit.

  • It almost caused a catastrophe for a passenger flight headed to Tallahassee Florida.

  • A near nightmare in the sky: a passenger plane nearly crashes into a camouflage drone flying at 2300 feet,

  • well above the typical altitude for a private drone.

  • The incident in the Tallahassee skies involved a U.S. Airways expressed jet flying near the airport.

  • A remote controlled aircraft 2300.

  • The first details of the March scare previously not revealed until an FAA official spoke about it Thursday in San Francisco.

  • said that the U.S. (ph) was so close to his jet that he was sure he had collided with it.

  • Thankfully, inspection to the airliner after landing found no damage.

  • Authorities do not know who flew the drone, but say it could have brought down the plane.

  • The safety of our passengers and crews are our top priority. U.S.

  • U.S. Airways parent company tells CNN tonight in a new statement. "We are aware of the publish report alleging an incident was one of our express jets and we are investigating.

  • There have been close calls before.

  • The FBI is still investigating a drone that came within 200 feet of an Alitalia flight in New York earlier this year.

  • We saw a drone, a drone aircraft.

  • The pilot in that incident can be heard telling air traffic control.

  • And this Monday a small drone was found after apparently hitting this building in St. Louis.

  • In the next five years, the FAA estimates as many as 7500 drones could be flying in the U.S. airspace at any given time.

  • Now, the agency has been working on a plan to safely integrate drones into the airspace so that you don`t have accidents with passenger aircrafts.

  • Now, it is illegal for commercial use, although there are some exceptions.

  • As for hobbies, the FAA only allows recreational drones to fly up to 400 feet.

  • Time for the Shoutout. What`s the second most populated country in the world?

  • If you think you know it, shout it out. Is it China, India, Russia or the United States?

  • You`ve got three seconds, go!

  • India is home to more than 1.2 billion people and second only to China and population.

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

  • Because of that huge population and the fact that it`s a federal republic like the U.S.,

  • India is often called the world`s largest democracy.

  • India`s population is also young. Its median age is 27 years old.

  • In China and the U.S. that age is closer to 37.

  • It`s no wonder why so many Indians who are close to the voting age of 18 are realizing they have political power.

  • This is something that country`s politicians are noticing, too.

  • I`m Redeema Sharma. I`m a student.

  • I`m (INAUDIBLE) Jeswal (ph). I`m a fruit seller.

  • My name is Ria Choppra, I work at a fashion magazine.

  • And I want .

  • I want .

  • And I want .

  • All three are first time voters. Given that India`s youth makes up half of its billion plus population.

  • How India`s young vote will determine the country`s future?

  • We are obviously, very obviously really frustrated with current political scenario in our country.

  • The only government these youngsters have really known is the current Congress party led one.

  • In power, for the last ten years.

  • In that time, prices have risen sharply, says Mukeish (ph).

  • Just look at the price of Petrol, he says. It`s doubled, it`s a huge problem.

  • Disillusioned, he says he is going to vote for a different party. One that will fight inflation.

  • Even Congress has acknowledge the problem.

  • `s Election Manifesto says the party will take firm action to control inflation in the difficult global economic scenario.

  • For Radima, though, economics takes a back seat.

  • The kind of (INAUDIBLE), the kind of gender disparity.

  • You know, general lack of empathy and sympathy, towards, you know, the situation that we are currently in as a country and community is extremely bad.

  • A powerful tool in the hands, the Internet. A quick and easy way to share information.

  • Instead of calling five people now I can share it with 1000 people on my Facebook friend list.

  • And politicians are listening.

  • For the first time, they are connecting with the youth online.

  • But the young will also have to do their bet (ph).

  • And because I believe in democracy.

  • They must go out and vote.

  • I do not have the right to complain and be angry or be upset if I don`t cast the vote.

  • Taking part is what will make this generation different.

  • Mallika Kapur, CNN, Mumbai.

  • Today`s Roll Call bridges the continental, if not contiguous United States.

  • Jumping South East. It`s the panthers who are up next.

  • They are online at Eagle Point Middle School in Eagle Point, Oregon.

  • From the northwest to the southwest, we are wrapping up our role in New Mexico.

  • The Portales High School Rams of Portales are on CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • The 2014 NFL draft wrapped up this weekend.

  • Some interesting storylines about the latest college football players to go pro.

  • First, the first overall pick - Jadeveon Clowney.

  • The Houston Texans shows the defensive end from South Carolina.

  • Clowney`s contract is worth $22 million, and when he heard the news,

  • he turned and hugged his mom, a woman he says, sacrificed so much for him.

  • Next, Johnny Manziel, nickname Johnny Football.

  • Quarterback of Texas A&M.

  • He was also chosen in the first round, but as the 22 pick, it was later than many expected.

  • The Cleveland Brown sold thousands of season tickets right after they chose Manziel.

  • And we reported on Michael Sam before.

  • A defensive end from the University of Missouri, also the first openly gay player in the draft.

  • The St. Louis Rams made history when they selected Sam.

  • He was the seventh round pick, number 249 out of 256 players in all.

  • Part of the reason he went so late was his lackluster performance at the NFL combine earlier this year.

  • It`s a test of speed, skill and strength.

  • I hope your mom enjoyed her Mother`s Day yesterday.

  • According to the National Retail Federation, two thirds of people who celebrate in the U.S. buy their mothers flowers.

  • What`s interesting is, they buy them, not pick them somewhere nearby.

  • Those folks are in the minority. Many of us likely got mom plants that traveled over land and sea.

  • Let`s imagine the world`s flower trade as a bouquet of 100 roses.

  • 60 of those stems would have been processed through one country, the Netherlands,

  • and most of those have traveled through here, the world`s largest flower auction, FloraHolland Aalsmeer,

  • often called the Wall Street of flowers.

  • Here a sea of flowers of 20,000 varieties cover the floors of one of the largest buildings in the world by floor space,

  • roughly as large as 200 football fields of flowers.

  • The flowers, which have been flown in from all over the world, are paraded on the stage for auction, sold, then shipped back all over the world.

  • This all has to happen very quickly, of course.

  • The 20 million flowers and 2 million plants sold here each day have to make their way to the airport by noon to get in that beautiful bouquet for your mom the next day.

  • Whatever you think of the environmental impact, globalization is clearly blossoming in the Netherlands.

  • If you play basketball, you`d better hope you don`t have this guy guarding you.

  • He will reject you.

  • When the locker room door opens, Elhaji Taco Fall has to duck to walk through it.

  • At seven feet 5, he`s the tallest high school basketball player in the U.S.

  • Four inches taller than Shaquille O`Neal. Shoe size is 22, and yes, he can dunk.

  • Elhaji moved to Florida from the West African nation of Senegal.

  • Elhaji moved to Florida from the West African nation of Senegal.

  • He hopes to play in the NBA, but if that doesn`t pay out, his GAP is 4.0, he hopes to become a biochemist.

  • From the court to the classroom, the guys got great chemistry.

  • He has several elements to his advantage, several key tone success, no matter what he shoots for.

  • Whether it`s athletic or kinetic energy.

  • A Jersey or atomic number.
