  • Kicking off CNN STUDENT NEWS on this Friday, May 23, I`m Carl Azuz at the CNN Center. Welcome to the show.

  • First up today, an attack in China. It happened in a market in Xinjiang.

  • This is a region of Northwest China. It`s a place that`s seen the series of attacks recently.

  • This one involved a number of explosions, Chinese news media say two SUVs crashed into the market on Thursday morning.

  • Explosives were thrown out of the vehicles, which eventually exploded themselves.

  • At least 31 people were killed, more than 90 were wounded,

  • China called this a serious act of terrorism and President Xi Jinping said the people responsible would be severely punished.

  • It`s not clear yet who that is, but China has blamed some previous attacks in this region on Islamic separatist group that lives there.

  • We are less than two weeks away from the official start of the Atlantic Hurricane season.

  • These storms can form at any time, but they are most likely to spin up between June 1 and November 30.

  • Predicting them is like predicting the weather. It`s not an exact science.

  • This is what Superstorm Sandy looked like as it approached the North Eastern U.S. in 2012.

  • It made landfall there late in that season.

  • On October, 29. 2012 was very active for Atlantic storms.

  • There were almost twice as many of them as experts predicted.

  • This time around, NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecast things to be relatively quiet, but ..

  • The news is that there will be hurricanes.

  • And I can`t tell you where it`s going to hit or how many will hit, but the number is three to six.

  • Three to six hurricanes in the water, in the Atlantic.

  • The average is 6.4. Last year we had two.

  • So, major hurricanes wandered to - you should have two to seven, last year zero.

  • Let`s go back to 2012.

  • This number was 19, 10 and one.

  • That`s the real number -one, what was that number one?

  • Sandy.

  • So, you only technically need one storm to make a big season, and there will be at least one.

  • Near normal, 40 percent chance, below normal, 50 percent chance, above normal about ten percent chance of that.

  • So there is where the number has come from, it doesn`t matter whether we get one or a dozen,

  • it matters which one hits land and what land it hits.

  • Time for the Shoutout. Which of these is typically a foodborne illness?

  • If you think you know it, shout it out! Is it Mersa, Ebola, E. coli or Influenza? You`ve got three seconds, go!

  • E. coli is a type of bacteria found in the stomach and intestines.

  • It can be dangerous when it enters the food supply. That`s your answer and that`s your shoutout.

  • That`s because certain strains of E. coli when they contaminate food can cause abdominal cramping,

  • serious intestinal problems, fever or kidney failure.

  • And estimated 265,000 Americans get infected from this every year.

  • A dangerous strain of E. coli might have made its way in the beef products sold in nine states.

  • 11 people are thought to have gotten sick from it, ten of them ate at restaurants that received contaminated meat.

  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture says 1.8 million pounds of ground beef have been recalled.

  • An officials says it`s currently being removed from store shelves,

  • but some it has already sold. Dr. Sanjay Gupta tells, you what to look out for.

  • If you have any ground beef in your freezer that says 2574B, that`s the lot number that`s of concern.

  • You want to throw that out. Don`t take any chances.

  • E. coli is a particularly - the strains of it is a particularly nasty player.

  • Just 100 cells can make somebody ill, and if left untouched it will double the number ever 15 to 20 minutes.

  • So, you can get to billions of cells, you know, fairly quickly.

  • And that`s why people are really, really - being very cautious about this.

  • Don`t take any chances. Even if you don`t have this ground beef, even you`ve thrown it away,

  • it`s Memorial Day weekend. If you are grilling, use a thermometer.

  • That could be the best advice I give you all weekend.

  • Use a thermometer, take a look at the numbers there.

  • That`s what you`re going to be shooting for. I use the thermometer.

  • It helps keep me and my family safe. You should do the same thing.

  • While grilling out is one thing associated with Memorial Day in the U.S.,

  • it`s observed next Monday, but the holiday wasn`t always called Memorial Day.

  • Back in the late 1860s, it was knows as Decoration Day, recalling when flowers were placed on the graves of those who died in the Civil War.

  • Over the decades and conflicts that followed, it became Memorial Day, a time to honor and remember all U.S. service men and women who died in wartime.

  • Church services, parades, speeches, a wreath laying at the tombs of the Unknowns,

  • these are some of the events that take place every year on the last Monday in May.

  • Symbolically, it`s also seen as the beginning of summer in the U.S.

  • From South to North, here are three of the schools watching us today.

  • It`s time for The Roll Call starting in the Volunteer state.

  • Oak Ridge High School, great to see you watching in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. It`s the home of the wild cats.

  • In the show-me-state, show-me the warriors. We see them at Fox High School in Arnold, Missouri.

  • And the lumberjacks are online, in the land of 10,000 lakes.

  • At Bemidji High School in Bemidji, Minnesota, thank you for watching.

  • Space travel is expensive. It`s dangerous. And it`s fascinating.

  • Fewer than 600 people have ever done it.

  • That is nothing considering the billions who`ve inhabited Earth since Yuri Gagarin first went into orbit in 1961.

  • So there might be some questions you have about it.

  • That`s the thinking behind the CNN I-Report project that asks students what they`d ask an astronaut.

  • CNN. This is mission control, Houston.

  • CNN, how do you hear me?

  • I hear you lung (ph) clear. My name is Steve Swanson, I`m a NASA astronaut.

  • Right I`m living aboard the International Space Station, which is in the orbit around the Earth, about 250 miles up.

  • One, it`s a fun experience. It`s go like - a rollercoaster ride in the way, and that begin a rollercoaster ride over.

  • You are going up that steep (INAUDIBLE), click, click, click, click. And it`s a little tension builds.

  • It`s great and then boom, you go.

  • You can feel the acceleration of the engines.

  • Just pushing you down into the seat as you take off.

  • And the whole thing lasts about 8.5 minutes, and after 8.5 minutes we are going 70,500 miles an hour,

  • and we are up in the Earth orbit spinning around.

  • Exercise is different up here, we don`t have gravity.

  • We have three different types of equipment.

  • We have a treadmill, we have an exercise bike, and we have a resistive exercise device, which is like lifting weights back on earth.

  • We do have that planned out. We will be using commercial craft like SpaceX or possibly Boeing.

  • Sierra Nevada also - in Sierra Nevada, there`s a reusable vehicles,

  • so there`s one right now. It`s on the dry board.

  • It has plans, and it`s a possibility that is reusable.

  • The (INAUDIBLE) space craft at NASA is building, is not reusable also, it`s another capsule.

  • Then, of course, we are relied on the Russians until we get one of ours done.

  • But I do hope in the near future we`ll have at least U.S. vehicle and then after that,

  • I do believe going back to some sort of reusable water will help bring the costs down and will help make it affordable for everybody else to come up here.

  • I`m not really scared. Most of us aren`t (ph) scared.

  • We know there`s a danger involved, but we`ve also been trained to handle all the possible scenarios that have come up.

  • The number one thing, we all like to do is look out the window.

  • It`s such a beautiful thing to do, and looking down on Earth is just a fantastic way to spend your time. Thank you.

  • Square footage, number of bedrooms, features - things people ask about whenever they buy a home.

  • You don`t usually hear numbers or see curb appeal like this:

  • yep! It`s a castle.

  • And it`s for sale in Kentucky. Square feet - 12,000. Averages around 2,000.

  • Bedrooms, yes, double digits, features - it`s got those two.

  • The honors putting it up for sale because the ultra-luxury market is said to be in ultra-high demand right now.

  • The price, $13 million, that`s not easy money, but it buys a real estate.

  • Perspective owners would have to mind their manner, but anyone with that kind of dough can get an honorable mansion.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. One thing we have to mention - there will be no show Monday on the Memorial Day holiday.

  • We`ll see you next Tuesday on CNN STUDENT NEWS.

Kicking off CNN STUDENT NEWS on this Friday, May 23, I`m Carl Azuz at the CNN Center. Welcome to the show.
