  • Hello and welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz reporting from the CNN Center as March marches on.

  • We`re glad you`re taking ten minutes out of your Tuesday to watch our show.

  • First up, the Middle East where there`s been fighting for decades between Palestinians and Israelis.

  • President Obama like other U.S. and international leaders is trying to encourage peace talks between the two sides.

  • But they are not going well.

  • And violence between Israelis and Palestinians flared up this month.

  • Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas was at the White House yesterday.

  • Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas was at the White House yesterday.

  • Two weeks after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited.

  • The two Middle Easters leaders disagree so deeply over issues like land borders and security issues that the U.S. is having trouble just getting them to talk to each other.

  • The Obama administration set an April deadline for the two sides to agree on the path toward peace.

  • That will likely be extended through the end of the year.

  • The U.S. and European Union have issued sanctions or penalties against Russian officials,

  • but they only directly affect the handful of people

  • but they only directly affect the handful of people

  • The sanctions will prevent about 32 Russians from traveling to certain countries and getting access to some investments they have in those countries.

  • This is all about Crimea.

  • t`s a region of Ukraine were more than 96 percent of voters elected to split off from Ukraine and become part of Russia?

  • The U.S. and European Union called Sunday`s vote illegal, and said they wouldn`t recognize it.

  • Russia supports the vote and says it`s protected by international law, allowing a region to govern itself,

  • because Russia also supports troupes who`ve been in Crimea since Ukraine ousted its former president last month,

  • the U.S. and other nations want to penalize Russia.

  • Time for the Shoutout. The largest earthquake ever recorded struck what country?

  • If you think you know it, shout it out! Was it the U.S., Indonesia, Chili or Iran?

  • If you think you know it, shout it out! Was it the U.S., Indonesia, Chili or Iran?

  • You`ve got three seconds, go!

  • In 1960, a magnitude 9.5 earthquake shook the nation of Chile.

  • That is the biggest quake on record.

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

  • That`s a tsunami warning alarm you hear in this YouTube video.

  • It went off Sunday in the South American nation of Chile.

  • A magnitude 6.7 earthquake, which is characterized as strong, but not extreme, struck not too far from Chile`s Pacific Coast on Sunday.

  • It did cause a tsunami.

  • According to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, but there was no widespread threat, nothing major actually hit Chile,

  • According to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, but there was no widespread threat, nothing major actually hit Chile,

  • and there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

  • Up to the Pacific Coast of North America, another quake hit on Monday morning.

  • You could see here how two news anchors from KTLA reacted.

  • The quake that hit Los Angeles was magnitude 4.4.

  • You can feel those, but they only caused minor damage.

  • If you live in an area prone to earthquakes, and you`re indoors, experts say to get under a desk or a table like the reporters did, or to stand near an interior wall, away from furniture, fire places and appliances.

  • If you are outdoors, head for open spaces.

  • You want to be away from buildings, power lines or anything that could fall on you.

  • The families of the 239 people aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are struggling with the unknown.

  • The father of a missing passenger says all he hopes for is that officials find the plane.

  • And 11th day of searching turned up nothing.

  • There are countless series for why the plane vanished and where it could have gone.

  • Yesterday, a Malaysian newspaper reported that the aircraft might have been flown low to the ground to avoid being picked up by radar.

  • So, figuring altitude of 5,000 or less. With the plane this size, is that even possible?

  • Getting it down to 5,000 feet, and what the difficulties would be to fly there.

  • I`ll point out something right now, we are actually at about 6800 feet altitude wise, but above the ground we are only 1400 feet.

  • The reason is, we are flying that northern route. We are over Pakistan.

  • This part of Pakistan is extremely mountainous.

  • The terrain is very (INAUDIBLE) with a lot of high mountains

  • We are having to navigate, as you can see, to sort of pick and choose our way to go through these mountain passes or to clear the mountain tops.

  • And again, that said about 6400 feet.

  • Let`s take it even lower because if you are really trying to evade radar, you`ve got to do almost (INAUDIBLE) of the Earth flying.

  • This is when you`re going to start getting all sorts of warnings and alerts, because this airplane is so automated it is trying to tell the pilot - look,

  • if you want to fly this low, it must be you`re trying to land.

  • We are not. We are just trying to fly low

  • In order to try to appease the aircraft we could lower the landing gear, which I`ll show you how - now we`ve got the landing gear down.

  • The problem with this - is at least quiet some of the alarms, but the other problem is now we are really drinking a lot of fuel.

  • Whoever is in control of the aircraft,

  • if this was the route they took, and this was they altitude they tried to fly,

  • that they knew the terrain they were going into.

  • Remember, for this simulation we made it daylight, but for that person at that time, it would have been night time,

  • which means that any other ground hazards would have been extremely hard to see and without a transponder transmitting,

  • it would have meant that any other aircraft wouldn`t know we were hear.

  • Sara Bareilles may want to see you be brave, but on our Roll Call, we already know who is.

  • The Braves, Indian River High School. They are online and fearless in Chesapeake Virginia.

  • We may be one day after St. Patrick`s Day, if it`s not too late to recognize the Irish, they are watching from Hackett Catholic Central in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

  • And on the West Coast, we found the Saxons.

  • North Torrance High School in Torrance, California. It`s great to see you on our roll.

  • I`m a former drummer. I played for a few years back in middle and high school.

  • But I wasn`t as good as Jason Barnes. He`s 24 years old, lost part of his right arm two years ago in a roof cleaning accident.

  • Scientists at Georgia Tech developed a robotic arm for him.

  • Scientists at Georgia Tech developed a robotic arm for him.

  • One part reacts to Barnes` bicep to do what a hand and wrist would do.

  • The other uses a computer chip to react to the music it hears and tries to enhance what`s playing.

  • My first lesson with my drum teacher and he was kind of curious - how I would play drums.

  • But I also explained to him that I would be able to do more and things I used to be able to do with some robotics.

  • It was pretty exciting to do.

  • To have a stick with a mind of its own that can listen to Jason, improvise, surprise him.

  • That` definitely like adding another brain to the equation, playing your instrument with another person.

  • It can push music to new domains and maybe even lead to a new kind of music genres.

  • It has a potential to play things better than I normally would or anybody normally would.

  • Practice makes perfect hand (ph).

  • I think it`s a pretty new area to create robotic musicians, meaning these robots are first musicians and only then robots.

  • There`s a rescue crew called Henry I at Sonoma County airport in California.

  • One thing its members train on, is saving people in remote areas like rugged mountainsides or cliffs.

  • But it`s not always people.

  • A woman recently called 911 after her black Labrador retriever fell off a cliff and got stranded on the two by two food ledge.

  • It couldn`t move without falling.

  • The sheriff`s office doesn`t want people risking their lives trying to save animals, so it`s sent is own crew to retrieve the retriever.

  • As you see in this YouTube video, the dog was airlifted to safety and afterward reunited with its owner.

  • As you see in this YouTube video, the dog was airlifted to safety and afterward reunited with its owner.

  • Sometimes it`s a state, sometimes a burrito, sometimes you just feel like a big old bowl of pasta.

  • Well, check it, yo.

  • A big old bowl of pasta orders up!

  • In honor of Italian American Marching Club parade, chef strung together more than 500 pounds of noodles,

  • 150 pounds of sauce, and countless calories, all of them delicious.

  • It fit, if you can say that, into an eight foot wide bowl.

  • Of course, no one person is going to eat this.

  • We doubt he`d make it past the couple of pounds before spaghetting pretty sick.

  • If you`re looking to bake up a record, and you`re willing to show out the money and time

  • that`s exactly the sort of thing that will make a meailingful (ph) impression.

  • That will bowl people over.

  • Though putting it together would take you al dente long.

  • Though putting it together would take you al dente long.

  • Certainly, it spices up our show with the saucy story that we hope will keep you carbing back for more.
