  • It`s good to have you back for more commercial free CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz. And you are ten minutes away from being updated on current events.

  • That includes what`s happening concerning Ebola.

  • The death toll from this year`s outbreak in West Africa is now higher than 1,000.

  • And partly because there`s no cure for the often deadly virus.

  • The World Health Organization decided it`s ethical to use experimental drugs to try to fight Ebola.

  • This is an opportunity to right a wrong law of history that it is only a relatively recently in the last decade that research have begin investigating interventions for Ebola.

  • Now is the time to catch up.

  • This is significant because experimental drugs haven`t been tested or approved for use in people.

  • Two American missionaries with Ebola got treated with one such drug.

  • They appear to be recovering.

  • But a Spanish priest who got the same drug died yesterday morning.

  • If you`re spending any time on social media or watching life news Monday night, chances are you heard about the death of Robin Williams.

  • The renowned American comedian and Academy Award winning actor was found dead in his home on Monday morning.

  • It appeared he committed suicide.

  • Mourning and memories welled up around the world for the man who was the voice of Aladdin`s Ginny,

  • of Ramon in Happy Feet, who played Teddy Roosevelt in Night at the Museum.

  • When he wasn`t performing on stage or screen,

  • Williams gave a lot of his time, money and endorsements to charities,

  • UNICEF, Amnesty International, the USO.

  • You might have seen this commercials for St. Jude Children`s Research Hospital.

  • It said Williams never charged a fee for his work with them.

  • Williams media representative said the actor had been battling severe depression recently.

  • He`d been in rehab for drug treatment earlier this year.

  • So, we`ve got this segment called Roll Call.

  • It`s a chance to have your school announced on CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • There`s now only one way to submit a request and you need to be at least 13 years old.

  • Go to cnnstudentnews.com, click word that says Roll Call and live a comment at the bottom of our transcript page.

  • We`ll pick three schools from each day`s transcript.

  • You can make one request every day, but spamming will not help you.

  • Please tell us your school name, city, state and mascot. Good luck.

  • See if you can I.D. me. I`m home to more than two percent of the U.S. population.

  • I`m a century`s old city made up of five boroughs.

  • I was once known as New Amsterdam, but I was renamed in 1664 after an English Duke.

  • I`m New York City, home to 8.4 million people.

  • That makes it America`s most popular city.

  • And one way, officials, police and business can track those people is through surveillance cameras.

  • They have numerous benefits, as you`re about to see,

  • and they bring up numerous privacy concerns.

  • Activists ask what if the technology`s abused,

  • what if it`s used to inappropriately follow people.

  • One company says it has a way to address that.

  • Americans spend roughly $37 billion a year waiting in lines.

  • At the grocery store, for a hamburger, at their favorite restaurants.

  • Imagine if you didn`t have to.

  • That may soon become a reality in New York where they are embracing new recognition technology that will count every pedestrian in the city.

  • Every neighborhood din the city walks.

  • We really need to have an understanding of what that activity looks like so that we can serve New Yorkers better.

  • Over 60 percent of commuters in New York City travel by foot or public transit.

  • For a city of 8.4 million that`s a lot of people to count.

  • The Department of Transportation counts pedestrians around the city and they send a few people,

  • they go twice a year and they just sit there with umpire pitch counters.

  • It doesn`t really give us a view of what it`s like day in and day out through different seasons.

  • A startup called Placemeter is trying to change that.

  • By providing a real time picture of New York`s pedestrian traffic using hundreds of existing video feeds around the city.

  • We leer in computer vision algorithm that actually makes it possible to detect and count people.

  • Using online traffic video feeds, Placemeter currently counts about 10 million people a day.

  • They can even count how many people are inside a building.

  • The city`s already using the data, providing pedestrian counts to small business owners in the city`s online business atlas.

  • And there`s promising potential for data integration with consumer apps.

  • If out data was instead of Yelp or Google Maps, you could set up an alert telling you that restaurant you always wanted to try,

  • but is always packed. Right now, is the right time to go.

  • Today, the company only covers about 25 percent of the city.

  • To help count the rest, Placemeter`s offering to pay residents to stream video from their own windows using an old smartphone.

  • Today we count different kinds of equals on pedestrians, tomorrow we are going to start detecting and classifying gender.

  • Then age, then we are going to start detecting people with strollers or with bags, and things like that.

  • With detection technology rapidly improving, an obvious concern is whether their systems will be able to track the details of our daily lives.

  • What we do is turn video feeds into a data.

  • Video feeds by nature are a little creepy. Just somebody looks at them. In our case, a computer looks at them.

  • So, whenever one frame gets through our system, we process it, turn it into some data and then we delete it.

  • I think there`s a lot more things we can do if we have better understanding of the pedestrian activity in the city.

  • When we have to go schedule trash pickup, how many police we need to deploy to a particular area.

  • The better information you have on a place, the better you are going to be able to manage it.

  • The better information you have on a place, the better you are going to be able to manage it.

  • Who`s watching CNN STUDENT NEWS today? We find out, on The Roll Call.

  • The Hiram High Horniza Hovering. Easy to see what the buzz is about in Hiram, Georgia.

  • We are also online at Campbell Junior High School with the Cardinals.

  • They are flying high over Winchester, Kentucky.

  • And what about the Warriors? Washington High School in Sioux (ph) Falls, South Dakota, thank you all for watching.

  • The U.S. Secretary of Defense is Chuck Hagel.

  • But if you asked U.S. soccer fans who it was over the summer, they would have told you Tim Howard.

  • The American goalkeeping great set the record for most saves ever in a World Cup match.

  • 16 saves. And though Belgium eventually won the game, knocking out the U.S., and though Germany eventually won the 2014 FIFA World Cup,

  • Howard`s defense won him worldwide recognition. No surprise those who knew him in high school.

  • He is the anchor of team USA.

  • At age 35, Tim Howard is still at the top of his game, and at his New Jersey high school, no one is surprised.

  • I remember that. I remember that. You see a goalie in him, and like he could anticipate where the ball was going to be.

  • He was watching his eyes the whole time. Yes.

  • Nothing Timmy does surprises me. That`s the thing about it. When he`s working as hard you see Timmy Howard doing all things right the U.S. team - U.S.`s coach say, hey, I`m going up my game and I`m going to try to match what he`s doing.

  • Howard played basketball and soccer at North Brunswick High School.

  • His year book quotes senior year It will take a nation of millions to hold me back.

  • He went on to major league soccer and at 23 he was recruited by one of the best known sports teams in the world.

  • When Tim got the call for Manchester United it was like a win for all of us.

  • That was like all right, our guy made it. And it was really cool to see.

  • For Howard, fame also meant responsibility, and turned a very personal struggle into advocacy.

  • Faith Rice is the executive director of the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome.

  • Tim called us one day and said he wanted to volunteer with the organization.

  • Howard had been diagnosed with Tourette as a child,

  • when he joined Manchester United, British tabloids ridiculed the goalie for the disorder.

  • But he told CNN in 2011 it was an obstacle he never let stand in his way.

  • I may not make it, you know, as a professional footballer,

  • but I don`t want the reason to be Tourette`s syndrome,

  • and so, you know, it`s something that I live with every day and for me now, and my life, it`s like breathing to me.

  • You know, if I woke up one day and didn`t have Tourette`s syndrome it would feel weird.

  • Howard has done work with children and their families for the New Jersey center and is lending his name to its brand new Tim Howard Leadership Academy.

  • It`s really important for these kids to have a hero, someone who has dealt with all of the things that they`re dealing with, and has survived.

  • And to the kids at North Brunswick High Howard is a role model, too.

  • The same hallway that that kid is walking is the same hallway that Tim walked in.

  • That locker may be Tim`s locker.

  • So, all these kids have a direct connection, they could see what hard work can do and it`s right there on TV, every other day.

  • Every dog may have his day, but not every dog has a day as mayor.

  • Conorad, Minnesota has elected perhaps the hairiest leader in North America.

  • The town of 12 people picked Duke by a landslide. Now, this isn`t just someone`s pet project.

  • Duke is credited with helping slow traffic in the town.

  • His owner says when drivers see him, they slow down.

  • Duke`s getting always - looked the part. He spent five hours in the beauty parlor, because after all, every mayor can use a little grooming,

  • especially before going snouting about, trying to kill to gather support as a (INAUDIBLE) politician.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. We hope you`ll elect to watch CNN STUDENT NEWS again tomorrow.
