Today, CNN 10 starts with a look at how Americans are responding to Wednesday`s deadly school
shooting at a high
school in Parkland, Florida. That`s where the Broward County sheriff called Thursday
a day of healing, a day of mourning.
Churches, concert venues and parks are planning to hold vigils and prayer services. Florida`s
government has offered to help pay for the hospital
and funeral bills for the victims and provide counseling for those affected.
From Florida to Washington, D.C., debate has renewed over additional gun legislation in
the U.S. Some officials say it wouldn`t have prevented
Wednesday`s attack. Others disagree.
Students have been reaching out to me, reaching out to staff, probably board members and others,
that now, now is the time for this country to have a real conversation on sensible gun
control laws in this country.
Another subject discussed was mental health, as investigators look into a possible warnings
signs that the suspected shooter gave in the
months before the attack.
We need to have the power to take that person and bring them before mental health professionals
that particular time, involuntarily, and have them examined. People are going to be rightfully
so concerned about their rights, as am I. But what
about the rights of these students? What about the rights of young kids who go to schools
with book bags and pencils? Don`t they have the right to
be protected?
And with the flag flying at half-staff over the White House, President Trump addressed
the nation yesterday and specifically told young
Americans that they are, quote, never alone and never will be.
Our entire nation with one heavy heart is praying for the victims and their families.
To every
parent, teacher and child, who is hurting so badly, we are here for you, whatever you
need, whatever we can do to ease your pain.
It`s a community both in mourning and on edge as a precautionary measure, all other schools
in Florida`s Broward County were locked down
yesterday with increased security.
From the state to Florida, we`re now taking you to the nation of South Korea where the
2018 Olympic Winter Games are wrapping up their first week.
After this weekend, the luge and skeleton events will be behind us. More skiing, bobsledding,
skating and snowboarding are still ahead.
And here`s where the medal count stood as of Thursday night, before Friday`s results
came in. Norway led the pack with 17 overall medals.
Germany, Canada, the Netherlands and the U.S. rounded up the top five countries for medals
won. Of course, by the time you see, there could have
been some changes to these counts.
You might have heard some of the competitors described as Olympic athletes from Russia.
Though they have won five medals as of last night, their
national anthem was not played and they`re not allowed to compete under the Russian flag.
These are some of the International Olympic Committee`s
penalties on Russia. Following it's massive doping scandal. The athletes from Russia aren't the only ones competing under unfamiliar circumstances.
Hey, I`m Will Ripley at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Less than 200 miles separates Pyeongchang,
Korea, from Pyongyang, North Korea. But in many ways, the two places are worlds apart.
And for the North Koreans visiting here, they`re seeing a
lot of things for the first time.
The North Koreans arrived here in Pyeongchang on this high speed train, the KTX. Built in
2004, it travels almost 190 miles an hour. They don`t have
trains like this up North. They`re a lot older and a lot slower.
A lot of North Koreans are carrying smartphones these days, at least those privileged enough
to live in Pyongyang. But what most don`t have is access
to the Internet, or search engines like Google. Instead, they have a state-controlled intranet,
all the content monitored and censored.
This is probably the first time the North Koreans are seeing these many foreign faces.
North Korea prides itself on being racially pure,
homogenous. You rarely see these many foreigners in one place.
The North Koreans are probably hearing this kind of music for the first time. In North
Korea, music like everything else, is tightly controlled.
Not here.
A lot of these artwork probably looks a little strange to the North Koreans. After all, in
Pyongyang, all of the monuments are to the late
leaders or the ruling workers party. They definitely don`t have stuff like this.
We`re about to enjoy a meal that most people in North Korea can`t afford. This is Korean
barbecue, one of my favorites. And you can`t find it up
North. For most people, beef, chicken, pork, it`s just an unaffordable luxury.
This is our waiter, Chi Yang-sa (ph). He`s 21 years old and we were just noticing his
blue hair here because in North Korea, you never see this.
People only have one hair color. It`s the natural dark black or brown.
Something else most North Koreans have probably never seen before, a street light this, lined
with stores and neon lights. South Korea is a thriving
capitalist country. North Korea, a socialist country. Two neighbors with two very different
ways of life.
Ten-second trivia.
Which of these foods was invented the most recently?
French fries, hot chocolate, potato chips, or coffee?
All of these foods are hundreds of years old, with one exception the humbled potato chips.
Of course, it`s difficult to know exactly when certain foods were invented. But historians
generally agree that potato chips appear sometime
in the 1800s and they were likely first enjoyed or at least popularized in the town of Saratoga,
in Upstate New York.
The famous tale concerning their invention is the subject of today`s "Great Big Story".
It seems a lot of companies are looking at flying drones as potential taxis of the future.
And here`s one from China. The company
Ehang released this video last week which stars a drone, supported by human passengers
who climbed aboard for a ride.
Not all of its flights have gone this smoothly. The company CEO says some of its test flights
turned out to be, quote, violent. But only dummies,
not people were reportedly aboard those.
The high (INAUDIBLE) propped up by the claim that a prototype could motor on 80 miles per
hour. Now, some might find that GP-excessive. And there`s
no operator aboard to receiver your call to slow down. So, if your sensor- tive (ph) to
speed and you find jet plain scary, stepping aboard a drone would be downright AV-ironic.
I`m Carl Azuz. We are off Monday for the Presidents Day holiday. We`ll return Tuesday. We hope
your weekend, like your Friday, is awesome.
