  • Today is a national day of mourning in France.

  • On CNN STUDENT NEWS,

  • we are starting with a report of a terrorist attack in Paris.

  • It happened yesterday at the office of "Charlie Hebdo."

  • It`s a satire magazine that`s based in the French capital.

  • It`s kind of an equal opportunity offender.

  • It`s made fun of Christians, Jews, Muslims.

  • "Charlie Hebdo" has published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

  • That`s strictly illegal in the Islamic faith.

  • And the French official says the gunmen who attacked magazine employees yesterday,

  • said they did it in revenge for the Prophet Muhammad.

  • Investigators say there were at least three terrorists involved.

  • They killed the magazine`s editor-in-chief

  • as well as a number of cartoonists and two police officers, 12 people in all.

  • And 11 others were injured.

  • After the shooting, the gunmen escaped.

  • And France is at its highest security level.

  • What is "Charlie Hebdo"?

  • It`s an over 40-year old Paris-based weekly satirical magazine

  • that is no stranger to controversy.

  • It is unfamiliar to most Americans.

  • Its closest equivalent is probably "The Daily Show" or "The Onion,"

  • and over the years it has become famous for its take downs and lampooning of politicians,

  • public figures and religious icons and symbols.

  • The magazine`s cartoons mocking Islamic extremism

  • have angered some Muslims over the years

  • and made it a target for attacks.

  • In November, 2011 the magazine`s officers were destroyed in an arson attack.

  • The same day "Charlie Hebdo" was set to publish an issue

  • with the cover appearing to make fun of Islamic law.

  • And the magazine`s most recent tweets,

  • and that an hour before the attacks, shows a cartoon of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,

  • the leader of ISIS, wishing his followers good health in the New Year.

  • And now many on Twitter re-twitting some of the controversial images

  • from the magazine standing with it and defending freedom of speech.

  • This image, "Je suis Charlie," or "I am Charlie"

  • began trending shortly after the attacks.

  • The magazine`s insisted in the past

  • that its goal has never been to provoke anger of violence.

  • One "Charlie" journalist said this in 2012:

  • "We want to laugh at the extremists - every extremist.

  • They can be Muslim, Jewish, Catholic.

  • Everyone can be religious, but extremists` thoughts and acts we cannot accept.

  • Brian Stelter, CNN, New York.

  • France has the largest Muslim population in Europe.

  • It makes it more than seven percent of the population.

  • The Muslim Council of France spoke out against the attack.

  • It said it supported the victims and their families

  • and it joined other groups and other countries in calling

  • this an attack on democracy and the freedom of the press.

  • As police went after the gunmen,

  • thousands of men and women gathered in different locations around France and Europe.

  • They held up pens in support of the magazine

  • and spoke up for liberty and free expressions.

  • In one part of Paris,

  • some demonstrators held up lighted letters that spelled out "Not Afraid."

  • From yesterday`s transcript page at cnnstudentnews.com,

  • here are three schools that raise their hand for the "Roll Call."

  • Del Webb Middle school is in Henderson, Nevada.

  • It`s the home of the Wranglers and it`s awesome.

  • From outwest, we are headed to West Virginia,

  • the mountain state, where we`ve got the Red Dragons

  • watching at St. Albans High School in St. Albans.

  • And across the Pacific, we are getting a shoutout to the capital of Thailand:

  • Bangkok is where we are happy to be part of your day

  • at Hero (ph) International School.

  • Time for the "Shoutout."

  • What was the profession of American Revolution hero Paul Revere?

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

  • Was it Silversmith? Town crier, farmer or sheriff.

  • You`ve got three seconds, go!

  • It was a silversmith whose midnight ride in 1775

  • warned Boston that the British were coming.

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

  • Revere also overlaid the dome of the Massachusetts State House with copper.

  • And in the late 1700s, along with another revolutionary war hero,

  • Revere buried something significant in the building`s cornerstone:

  • a time capsule. It was found, cleaned up and reburied half a century later.

  • And last months when the state house sprang a water leak,

  • the ten-pound box was uncovered once again and carefully opened up on Tuesday.

  • Appraisers say that items inside would likely be

  • worth hundreds of thousands of dollars,

  • but in keeping with history officials are planning to bury it

  • all once again in the statehouse cornerstone.

  • The box itself is actually pretty small, just 5.5 by 7.5 inches.

  • Here are all the things that came out of it some 220 years

  • after it was first put together back in 1795.

  • And here is what they found: a paper seal of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts,

  • five different folded newspapers and 24 coins,

  • one of them stretching as far back as 1652,

  • another with the imprint of George Washington.

  • And perhaps the things that was most significant to a lot of people - this silver plate.

  • If you are able to look closely on it,

  • you would see the names Samuel Adams and Paul Revere,

  • they are the two men who put all of this together back in the 1795.

  • They placed it under a cornerstone of the Massachusetts Statehouse,

  • the contents were actually found back in 1855,

  • and that`s when the decision was made to remove everything,

  • conserve it and put it in a brass box that was made just for the occasion.

  • The lead of the boxes inscribed with the names of it maker,

  • and that white stuff on it,

  • that`s some of the plaster from when it was returned to the cornerstone.

  • One day those items will be returned to the statehouse,

  • but there will be efforts made to conserve what was found inside.

  • And then those items will be put on display here at the museum.

  • It will be a chance for anyone who wants to,

  • to see a part of the story of this nation`s history,

  • just the way that a great patriot and a founding father wanted us to see it.

  • IN Boston, Alexandra Field, CNN.

  • From the glimpse of the past to a glimpse of the future.

  • The international Consumer Electronics Show, CES,

  • is on right now in Las Vegas, Nevada.

  • It`s like a technological Super Bowl,

  • more than 3600 exhibitors are there,

  • showing off what they hope will be the technology of tomorrow.

  • Highlights include a facial recognition app

  • that lets you use a selfie as your password.

  • Wearable technology is also rolling forward.

  • These electric skates slip on the shoes

  • and move you from A to B about seven miles per hour faster.

  • Watches seem to be getting smarter every minute.

  • And laser scanners on this car aim to curb crashes,

  • even if you floor it toward and obstacle,

  • the car can override you and stop before impact.

  • And say you wanted the drone to give video of your risky ride.

  • Well, there is one of those, too.

  • Most people don`t want drone following them around,

  • but this is the type of drone that you do want following you around.

  • You just let it take off and then it uses this wrist band

  • to follow your around right, left, up, down

  • and record everything you are doing even across the Las Vegas desert.

  • What`s advantage that your drone has over other drones?

  • The main thing is that you don`t need to have any skills to control it.

  • So, you have air leash, you push the button and you are ready to go.

  • It seems you it many times, to get a great chat,

  • you have to have two people.

  • What are some other situations

  • where you could use this type of drones beside ATVing out on your own?

  • Any kind of action sport such as surfing,

  • snowboarding, skateboarding, you name it.

  • And tell me a little bit about the technology,

  • what exactly is happening between that draw and the bracelet?

  • So, we have light range of sensors inside starting from GPS,

  • accelerometers, gyroscopes, (INAUDIBLE).

  • With the fusing to readings from all of these sensors,

  • they predict your movement trajectory.

  • This drone is going to set you back $1300.

  • We choose a big chunking change,

  • but not as much as some of the other drones that I tested out.

  • But keep in mind that doesn`t include this camera.

  • So, droning is an expensive sport no matter which way you cut the cost.

  • For the students of Bayside academy in Daphne, Alabama,

  • yes, I want to build a snowman.

  • This event in China, though, takes winner celebrations to the extreme.

  • It`s the annual ice and snow festival in Harbin, China.

  • It`s so massive that it runs longer than a month

  • and organizers say it brings in millions of tourists

  • every year from inside and outside China.

  • Lighted ice sculptures, inter - snow sculptures,

  • it`s all part of a snowbound spectacle in a city shivering

  • in single digit temperatures.

  • If your zen (ph) is the city frozen,

  • you won`t find that anywhere else.

  • The freezing fun will have you laughing all the way.

  • As long as the cold never bothered you anyway.

  • It`s a true winter for fans of snow and ice.

  • So, feel, don`t conceal the frozen fractors all around

  • and if a pun sends chills down your spine,

  • you`ll just have to let it go.

  • I`m Carl Azuz, CNN STUDENT NEWS returns tomorrow.

Today is a national day of mourning in France.
