  • FAFSA sounds kind of like a soft drink, but it`s more relevant to financial literacy and it`s coming up later today on CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. Welcome to the show.

  • First up today, a tribute. Yesterday was the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks in the Boston Marathon.

  • Three people died in the bombings, scores were injured, police say an officer was killed later by the bombing suspects.

  • But the city soldiers on.

  • But the city soldiers on.

  • From a moment of silence at the races finish line to sound of church bells ringing and the raising of the American flag.

  • The ceremony embodied the slogan Boston Strong.

  • Thousands of people gathered in the rain, from first responders and the vice president to runners and injured victims.

  • One man who had shrapnel in his leg said that last year he was on the ground at the finish line, this year he`ll be running across it.

  • Is this legit? There`s a vaccine for the Ebola virus?

  • Not legit. There is no known cure or vaccine for Ebola.

  • Avoiding close contact with Ebola patients is crucial.

  • One unique thing about Ebola is that unlike some other viruses,

  • people don`t tend to spread it, until they actually get sick with it.

  • So, it`s only when they are feverish that they are contagious.

  • Once they are, it spreads very easily and kills more than half of those who get it.

  • It`s never infected humans in the U.S.,

  • but for scientists researching and trying to stop Ebola`s spread in Guinea,

  • taking extreme precautions is just part of the job.

  • A simple blue box, potentially carrying one of the most dangerous pathogens in the world on its way to be tested.

  • In less than four hours we`ll find out whether it contains the Ebola virus.

  • The fate of three patients depends on what`s inside.

  • Simply getting the blood samples is a life threatening job.

  • One of these workers told us, he has a nine-month old baby at home.

  • They`ll do everything they can to protect themselves.

  • Three pairs of gloves, booties and layer after layer of gowns.

  • They go in to see the patients.

  • Every single inch of their body covered.

  • Impermeable suits, nothing in, nothing out.

  • You see, even a drop of the Ebola virus that gets through a break in your skin can infect you.

  • And we all have breaks in our skin.

  • This is the painstaking detail in process you have to go through to be able to interact with these patients with Ebola.

  • This is as close as we can get.

  • They are decontaminating themselves, but they`ve taken the blood samples and put them in this blue ice chest over here and it`s highly suspicious that contains Ebola.

  • WHO lab technicians suit up next.

  • They`ve just been hand-delivered the blue boxes.

  • Now, it`s their job to test a sample for the deadly virus.

  • They are going to have the results just two hours from now.

  • But a few years ago being able to test for Ebola on its own turn was impossible.

  • Precious blood samples had to be taken out of remote forested areas in Central Africa and flown to the CDC in Atlanta or the WHO in Geneva.

  • Pilots would sometimes refuse to fly the dangerous pathogens.

  • And even if they did, it could take days or weeks to get the results.

  • 8 p.m. We get the call.

  • So, two of these are positive.

  • So, two of the three patients . Yes. Now have confirmed Ebola.

  • Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN, Conakry, Guinea.

  • We are 16 days in the financial literacy month, and we have a new term for those of you who are thinking about higher education.

  • It`s FAFSA. Yes, that is fun to say.

  • It`s FAFSA. Yes, that is fun to say.

  • But it has to do with financial aid that can help with the cost of college.

  • If you`re applying for that aid, the U.S. government requires you to fill out a form.

  • It`s called the free application for federal student aid or FAFSA.

  • The government uses this form to determine whether you need help paying for college and how much help you are eligible to get.

  • The government uses this form to determine whether you need help paying for college and how much help you are eligible to get.

  • Many colleges and universities require this as well when deciding the terms of their scholarships.

  • And if you need financial aid for more than a year, you`ll likely have to apply again.

  • FAFSA can come up several times throughout your college education.

  • Another event happening in April is National Library Week.

  • It runs from the 13 through the 19 and in honor of it,

  • cnn.com asked viewers to submit their I-report photographs of their favorite libraries.

  • The results are beautiful. In some cases, astounding.

  • According to the American Library Association, the week-long observance has been around since 1958.

  • It includes all kinds of libraries, public, school, academic.

  • And it celebrates the contributions of libraries and librarians.

  • In a Pew research study released last year, 94 percent of Americans said that having a public library improves life in their community.

  • Though just over half of those polled said people don`t need public libraries as much as they used to.

  • Still, it appears the use of public libraries has gone out in the past decade.

  • You`d be welcome to join in, just please keep your voice down.

  • In the case of a missing Malaysia Airlines planes,

  • weeks of searching the ocean surface for clues or wreckage have come up with nothing.

  • In fact, the search for floating debris is wrapping up.

  • Now, the focus is on what`s under the waves.

  • And though no new pings or underwater signals have been heard recently, new maps are being drawn.

  • This is an area that is new to man.

  • With no pings since last Tuesday, the search had strayed down to the ocean floor with what is known as an AUV,

  • the autonomous underwater vehicle Bluefin 21.

  • And to say this is uncharted territory is putting it mildly.

  • The sort of imagery I`ve seen it`s not sharply mountains or anything,

  • it`s more flat and almost rolling.

  • Side scan sonar will produce a high resolution three dimensional map while searchers are hoping to spot evidence of Flight 370,

  • oceanographers want to take this chance to learn as much as they can about this part of the ocean.

  • We know so little that we will learn something about the seafloor there.

  • It`s mythology, the hills and valleys and how rough it is.

  • Arnold Gordon is a professor of oceanography at Columbia University.

  • Oceanographers are on site offering their knowledge of the deep and potentially benefitting scientifically from a multimillion dollar operation with an unprecedented focus on an otherwise overlooked part of the ocean.

  • We talk about millions of dollars to do this work, and obviously,

  • if one wanted to do this from a scientific perspective, we would not get the funding.

  • One potential obstacle for those looking for the plane,

  • deep layers of silt at the bottom of the Indian Ocean could yield valuable new information for oceanographers.

  • You can learn where it came from, what`s the source of the sediment in that area.

  • You would learn something about the ocean bottom currents that move the sediment around.

  • We are actually gathering information about the search environment all of the time,

  • and that`s spectered (ph) into the analysis.

  • While so much about Flight 370 is shrouded in mystery, scientists hope to gain knowledge for the future.

  • Jean Casarez, CNN, New York.

  • We cover news from all over the world. We are happy to have viewers all over the world.

  • This worldwide Wednesday, we are saying hello to Lin Tran Junior High School. It`s in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

  • Across the Pacific, happy to see you in Woodstock, Ontario, Canada.

  • They are online at Spring Bank public school.

  • And in Marche-en-Famenne, Belgium, thank you for watching it, Institute Sal-Horant (ph).

  • Glad to be part of your day.

  • (INAUDIBLE) of your parents say you`re growing up too fast.

  • Here`s proof.

  • It`s a time lapse that a Dutch filmmaker made of his daughter from when she was a newborn to her 14th birthday.

  • The original YouTube video lasts four minutes.

  • This is sped up even more.

  • The man says he saw his daughter changing so quickly that he needed to document the way she looked.

  • The man says he saw his daughter changing so quickly that he needed to document the way she looked.

  • And the British newspaper says the girl like her dad is proud of the project.

  • Of course, it took some time to put together, but it`s certainly grows on you.

  • It`s something that family can watch year after year clocking the differences, seeing how time flies.

  • This was truly a video for the ages.

  • Our ten minutes is up.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. We hope you`ll make time for us again tomorrow.

FAFSA sounds kind of like a soft drink, but it`s more relevant to financial literacy and it`s coming up later today on CNN STUDENT NEWS.
