  • Fridays are awesome. You`ve made it through the first full week of 2015.

  • I hope you are feeling good.

  • Let`s get started with five things you need to know about today`s headlines:

  • one, it`s cold in America.

  • From the Great Plains to the Deep South,

  • temperatures dove to single digits yesterday,

  • that`s in Fahrenheit, two, blame the Arctic.

  • It`s sent the blast of frigid air that glazed firefighters with ice

  • as they worked to put out a blaze in Indiana.

  • It`s caused districts to cancel or delay school days in several cities

  • including Chicago where wind chills were well below zero.

  • Animal control officers were out also in different cities looking to

  • help pets that might have been left out in the cold.

  • Points three takes us to France.

  • An intense manhunt was on last night for two brothers

  • who are suspected of carrying out Wednesday`s terrorist attack at a satire magazine.

  • 12 people including two police officers were killed,

  • a third suspect has turned himself in.

  • Four, the brothers are in the U.S. database of known or suspected terrorists.

  • They`ve been on the no fly list for years,

  • they are now the most wanted men in France.

  • Five, the tail section of AirAsia flight 8501 has been located in the Java Sea.

  • The plane disappeared in rough weather on December 28 with the 162 people aboard.

  • Search officials are hoping that tail will hold the answers

  • to what exactly happened to the flight.

  • Divers fought the un-relented currents on the surface of the Java Sea.

  • Down below in murky water they are fluttering like flags,

  • cleaning to ropes leading 30 meters down to the sea floor.

  • That`s where they are exploring the tail section of AirAsia flight 8501:

  • muddy, cracked and upside down, the airline`s emblem still unmistakable.

  • "We are struggling to breathe," says this diver.

  • We are fighting the sea currents and using up our oxygen quickly.

  • So quickly they only have enough air for a frustrating 15 minutes

  • to hunt for the so called black boxes:

  • the tail section houses the flight data and cockpit voice recorders,

  • unless the crash and current sucked them away.

  • Priority of the day is to leave the tail of the plane

  • because the black box could be in there.

  • Later the search operation team will brief me what the plan, the details.

  • Once we are confirmed with the proposed action, we start doing it.

  • They are lifted, using balloons that on this day never made it into the sea,

  • because the current was too rough.

  • International vessels and more equipment honed in above the tail section,

  • the rescue teams will wait one more day to try

  • and find the flight recorders as weather forced operations to halt.

  • Let`s take a few moments and see who`s on a roll today.

  • East Gaston High School, the warriors of Mount Holly are here, hello, North Carolina.

  • Richmond Hill is the city in Eastern Georgia,

  • where we found Richmond Hill Middle School the wild cats are watching.

  • And in the sunflower state, we are in Kansas, Toto.

  • Good to see St. John`s catholic school is watching in Beloit.

  • Last year was a sort of comeback year for the mumps.

  • Having heard of that, it`s been decade

  • since the disease was common in the U.S.

  • Your grandparents probably had the mumps and are now immune to it.

  • You`ve probably been vaccinated and are immune to it.

  • Before that vaccine was available,

  • the CDC says around the 186,000 Americans got the mumps every year.

  • Today, it`s usually just a few hundred per year.

  • But more than 1000 people got it in 2014,

  • including college students and more than a dozen professional hockey players.

  • The reasons for the increase are a bit of a mystery,

  • but the disease itself is not.

  • Mumps is an infection that`s caused by the mumps virus.

  • Even if somebody is not sick at all,

  • about third of people who get the mumps infection don`t have any symptoms,

  • but they are still carrying the virus and they can still potentially spread it to other people.

  • When you get mumps,

  • a lot of times it`s going to feel like just about any other viral infection,

  • but the real characteristic about

  • this particular infection distinguishes just about anything else.

  • Doctors know this.

  • The moments someone walks in, it`s right here.

  • It`s these parotid glands.

  • It`s what makes you look like chipmunk.

  • Most of us just get two shots to protect us against mumps in our lifetime.

  • One when we are about a year old,

  • and another one when we are between four and six years old.

  • But if you are a healthcare worker,

  • if you are someone who may be in close contact with people with mumps

  • or if you go traveling to an area where mumps is more endemic,

  • you might consider getting another booster shot.

  • With mumps just like a lot of other viral infections,

  • the treatment is what we call symptomatic.

  • It`s basically trying to let the body get through this period of illness,

  • but for most people, it`s a lot of sleep,

  • it`s a lot of rest overall.

  • Staying hydrated and letting your body overcome this infection.

  • For the vast majority of people who get mumps

  • and still about 1,000 people here in the United States do get it,

  • they are going to be just fine.

  • So, you just got to keep an eye on things.

  • If you are getting particularly ill go to the doctor,

  • but for the most part, people are going to overcome this just fine.

  • Know what our calendar is called? The Gregorian calendar.

  • It`s named for Pope Gregory XIII who established it back in 1582.

  • But the months of January is named for something far older than that.

  • It`s named for Janus, the mythical Roman god of beginnings.

  • Also, the Roman god of doorways. That`s random.

  • The U.S. Capitol building.

  • It`s under scaffolding for repairs,

  • but it`s where the 114 U.S. Congress is now seeded and working.

  • 435 voting representatives, 100 Senators.

  • They`ll be debating and drafting and determining new laws for the country.

  • But they weren`t doing so much of that on Tuesday.

  • It was moving day, chaotic time of finding and settling in the new offices.

  • Does your camera crew (INAUDIBLE)?

  • Whatever he says. So, whatever he says about what?

  • Running for president in 2016?

  • Making a decision here fairly soon as I said,

  • early part of this year.

  • Obviously, today we are here focused on our job in the U.S. Senate,

  • there was a lot of work to be done.

  • It`s day one of the 114 Congress.

  • Mr. Speaker.

  • We saw one bipartisan hug.

  • And saw a lot of new senators

  • and members getting sworn in and throwing parties for their friends and family.

  • My brother is here and his two children flew down from Boston, actually this morning.

  • So, which of you is the older brother?

  • I`m the older brother.

  • It`s an honor, number one to be reelected to Congress

  • and it`s great to show that moment with your family.

  • It`s been a chaotic day.

  • We are seeing folks inside trying to figure out

  • their new offices and moving boxes and moving desks.

  • There`s been kids, dogs,

  • all kinds of family everywhere as Republicans

  • take control of both the House and the Senate.

  • It`s been really interesting to see some of these folks

  • who on the campaign trail were these rising up

  • and coming stars, get into their new digs on Capitol Hill.

  • Mia Love, it`s a rising Republican star from Utah,

  • and Paul Ryan came and hugged her parents, said hi.

  • This was after she had a private meeting with a Mormon elder

  • who came here to bring a historic Bible for her to get sworn in on,

  • so it`s been a crazy day for her.

  • You know, a lot of funny games today, business really starts tomorrow.

  • Is an invisibility cloak now a reality?

  • It`s not just smoke and mirrors, well, it kind of is.

  • The device bends light and sends it through a number of lenses.

  • The result it appears you can see through objects placed

  • between the device and what you were originally looking at.

  • Practical use: think of surgeons who could see through their hands while operating.

  • It`s not terribly expensive,

  • the inventors say you can build your own for under 150 bucks.

  • It`s something you`d have to buy sight unseen.

  • It cloaks objects in plain sight.

  • And if you eye it closely,

  • you could see eye to eye on why it took a visionary

  • to devise the device and how it lands itself for a closer look.

  • CNN STUDENT NEWS returns Monday.

  • I hope all of you have an excellent weekend.

Fridays are awesome. You`ve made it through the first full week of 2015.
