A well-known side effect of Fridays, they
call it serious cases of awesome!

Welcome to CNN 10. I`m Carl Azuz.
Last month, we reported on how the Trump administration
was considering putting new tariffs or taxes

on steel and aluminum that comes from other
countries. Yesterday, President Donald Trump
announced he was officially putting those

tariffs into place. When they take effect,
it will cost 25

percent more to bring steel into the U.S.
from other countries and 10 percent more to

import aluminum.
But the taxes won`t apply to every nation.
Canada and Mexico will exceptions as the U.S.

renegotiates an existing trade agreement with

And other countries around the world can request
exemptions to the tariffs as well.

The president says a strong steel and aluminum
industry is vital to U.S. national security,

that the tariffs fulfill his campaign promise
to protect

American workers and that they`re intended
to encourage companies to buy American made

steel and aluminum.
Two American middle companies announced that
they plan to hire 800 workers because of the

tariffs. But critics say the tariffs could
wind up costing

thousands of jobs, if they hurt American businesses
that depend on imported metals to make their

products. A prominent Senate Democrat says

tariffs are, quote, like dropping a bomb on
a flea, and dozens of Republicans are concerned

they could cause a global trade war when
countries try to hurt each other by increasing
restrictions on one another`s products.

The new tariffs are set to take effect in
14 days.

AZUZ (voice-over): Ten-second trivia:
In terms of its diameter, which of these planets
is about 11 times the size of Earth?

Venus, Saturn, Jupiter or none of these?
The largest planet in our solar system, whose
diameter is about 11 times the size of Earth`s

is Jupiter.
AZUZ: Compared to earth`s mass, Jupiter is
thought to be much larger than that. And scientists

say NASA`s Juno spacecraft has led to new

about Jupiter.
For one thing, they believe the planet`s surface
has bands of gas and winds that flow very

quickly in opposite directions. They don`t
know how deeply

these bands extend, though, but information
from Juno has led them to conclude that Jupiter`s

outer layer extends 1,900 miles beneath the

of the planet.
So, how did they come up with this? Juno took
measurements of Jupiter`s gravitational field,

which scientists use to more deeply analyze

planet. They also concluded that though Jupiter`s
interior is thought to be fluid, it rotates

like a solid body.
The Juno mission cost the U.S. a little over
$1.1 billion. It`s hoped to help scientist

better understand the solar system`s largest

Jupiter is located fifth in line from the
sun. Both Jupiter and the Juno`s spacecraft

were named after characters in Roman mythology.
Back down to earth now, the United States
is gearing up for a time change that said

to give Americans more light in the evening.
Actually, the light

itself won`t change but the time on the clock
when it`s still light outside well.

Daylight Savings Time begins when clocks are
moved forward one hour. The exact technical

time when this is supposed to happen is at
2:00 on Sunday

morning when it will instantly become 3:00.
It could mean one fewer hour of sleep unless

we go to bed early, and it could make us late

everything on Sunday if our clocks aren`t

There are historic reasons for springing forward.
we change the clocks ahead one hour in the

spring and back one hour in the fall?
Well, it`s actually to reduce the electricity
consumption by extending the daylight hours.

SUBTITLE: Why do we change our clocks?
GRAY: In the U.S., we change our clocks at
2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March. That

begins Daylight Saving Time, that`s when we
spring ahead.

On the first Sunday in November, we change
our clock at 2:00 a.m. again, that`s actually

just going back to Standard Time.
Believe it or not, this started with an idea
from Benjamin Franklin. Franklin did write

an essay suggesting that people could use
less candles

if they got up early and made better use of

In 1918, the Standard Time Act established
time zones, and Daylight Saving Time. But

not all states participate. To this day, most
of Arizona and

all of Hawaii do not change their clocks.
Over 70 countries across the world observe
Daylight Saving Time, with notable exceptions

of China and Japan.
In 2007, we actually change the date of when
we set our clocks back an hour to the first

week in November. This helped protect trick-or-treaters

giving them an extra hour of daylight.
One of the other lines of thinking was that
we would have a better voter turnout on election

Experts say each time you change your clocks,
it`s always a good idea to change those batteries

in your smoke detector and always look forward

fall when you get that extra hour of sleep.
AZUZ: U.S. Secret Service is widely known
for protecting the president. But the agency

was created in 1865 with a very different
mission, to stop

the counterfeiting of U.S. currency. It still
does that. And that`s why if you wanted to

create fake money legally, like for movies
for instance,

it`s not a bad idea to get the approval of
the Secret Service.

REPORTER: This is a billion dollars, we think,
and that billion dollars belongs to RJ Rappaport

and he`s considered the king of cash.
of fake cash.

REPORTER: OK, kind of fake cash.
SUBTITLE: Rolling in (fake) dough.
RAPPAPORT: My name is Rich "RJ" Rappaport
and I`m the president of RJR Props.

REPORTER: Just a few years ago, RJR Props
was born. It`s a full service prop house,

but its specialty is cash, fake cash. And
there`s only a few

people who can legally make it and RJ is one
of them.

RJ`s prop money has been used in over 175
feature films , television shows and music

videos, and he devoted three full years to
perfecting that crisp

screen paper we call money, prop money.
RAPPAPORT: And we went down a long path and
working with the Secret Service and learning

all the laws to make sure that everyone that
uses it,

it will be legal for them and it`ll look fantastic.
REPORTER: But for those who don`t follow the
rules, they could wind up in big trouble.

RAPPAPORT: There is a rash of arrests. People
are just literally jailed because they were

using proper money that looked too real, and
I said to

myself, I`m not going to touch this unless
I know I`m doing it legally.

REPORTER: Alongside the Secret Service, RJ
created two different styles of prop money,

one that is printed on both sides and it`s
perfect for that

classic bank robbery scene. The other kind
is so close to the real deal, it can only

be printed on one side, otherwise, it could
end up in

circulation. It`s designed for the classic
money shot, aka the close-up.

RAPPAPORT: It`s a tough business. We all work
hard in it and prop money especially, it`s

not easy.
REPORTER: Yes, sounds like it. Thanks, RJ,
for keeping fake money real.

AZUZ: There`s a scientific term for a thunderstorm
of snow. Yes, it`s called thundersnow. And

-- well, have a listen.
AZUZ: This doesn`t happen often, which is
why it`s making news. It was part of the nor`easter

that struck the Northeastern U.S. earlier
this week.

Not everyone in the region was clapping for
it. Then again, not every storm that brings

the thunder brings the snow. There was nothing
atmosphere but it still came as a bit of shock.
So, in the midst of weathering another storm,

at least there was something to lightning

I`m Carl Azuz, wishing you nothing but blue
skies for the weekend.
