  • Yeah, I'd love to start off the show and just say Fridays are awesome, That is all.

  • I'm Carl Jesus, but we have a little more than that to tell you about today, so let's get right to it.

  • This is CNN 10.

  • Good news.

  • Bad news for the U.

  • S.

  • Economy.

  • First, the good.

  • The Labor Department says initial jobless claims have dropped.

  • This is the number of Americans who are asking the government for help because they've just lost their jobs in layoffs or business cutbacks.

  • The latest figure for this is from last week, and it's 837,000 people.

  • How can that be good?

  • Well, it's a lower number than many economists expected, and it's the lowest number of initial jobless claims since the coronavirus pandemic struck the U.

  • S economy in March.

  • So that's a sign things could be turning around.

  • Also, consumer confidence, a measure of how Americans feel about the economy, is up.

  • The business organization that monitors this says consumer confidence jumped in September by the biggest margin since 2003.

  • Thean Decks is still lower than it was before the pandemic, but it shows that people feel that the economy and jobs are moving in the right direction, and this can lead them to spend more money driving the economy forward.

  • Now for the bad news.

  • The airline industry is struggling American and United.

  • Two major players in the industry say they plan to cut a total of 32,000 jobs.

  • Travel restrictions and concerns about coronavirus have taken their toll on the airline's.

  • Members of Congress and the Trump administration have been trying to work out another stimulus deal that would involve trillions Maurin government spending and could include $25 billion in additional assistance for airlines if that government stimulus plan passes.

  • Airline industry executives say some of the layoffs could be avoided, but we don't know yet if politicians will reach an agreement.

  • The airline industry received 25 billion earlier this year in a stimulus package that passed in March.

  • It's not the only group that's hurting with fewer people visiting theme parks and staying at resorts.

  • Disney says it plans to lay off 28,000 people.

  • The U.

  • S Labor Department's monthly jobs report is due out today.

  • It gives a snapshot of the unemployment rate and the number of jobs added or lost.

  • That could give us more insight on where things stand on the economy.

  • Now, for some insight on where things stand with the weather from the American plain states to the East Coast, it's beginning to feel a lot like fall.

  • October has had a cooler start than usual, the National Weather Service says.

  • Parts of the Midwest are seeing temperatures that air 10 to 15 degrees cooler than this time of month usually brings.

  • But it's a different story on the West Coast.

  • There it's hot, dry and smoky, not a lot of rain conditions that are dangerous because they could contribute to the spread of the wildfires burning out West.

  • It's almost a tale of two countries in terms of the weather America is seeing and CNN 10 contributor Tyler Mauldin tells us why Tyler tis the season for big weather swings.

  • Carl and Invisible River of Air, located far above us where jet airplanes fly is the culprit.

  • The eastern two thirds of the country has rainy weather and temperatures 10 to 15 degrees below average, while the western one third of the U.

  • S.

  • Continues to deal with the drought and hot temperatures and deadly fires.

  • Notice how there's a stark line here dividing the conditions that divide is the jet stream or strong currents of air created when warm and cold air masses meet.

  • It's located about 5 to 9 miles up in the air that puts it at flight level, about 35,000 ft.

  • The Earth has four jet streams, one at the North Pole, one at the South Pole and then two in the middle near the equator.

  • Due to the Earth.

  • Spin the jet streams form them.

  • Move from west to east, each one traveling on average at more than 100 MPH.

  • During the winter months, the polar jet streams can get up to 250 MPH.

  • That wind energy can help produce monster storms like a winding river.

  • They never travel on a perfectly straight line.

  • Oftentimes, when will dive a little farther south, forcing you to bring out the parka and snow shovel in the winter or but north during the summer, causing you to turn the A C on ultrahigh.

  • It also helps meteorologists like myself predict where a weather system will go, since jet streams helped steer where a storm will head.

  • Imagine throwing a beach ball in the river and seeing where it ends up.

  • It's the same concept with storm systems and the jet stream.

  • And since it is located at 35,000 ft Carl, it could help you get your destination a little faster when you're flying.

  • Yeah, 12th Trivia.

  • Which of these cities was founded the most recently in 1909 Tel Aviv, Israel.

  • ST Petersburg, Russia.

  • Topeka, Kansas.

  • Or Tijuana, Mexico.

  • Up these places, the Israeli city of Tel Aviv was founded the most recently next today, we're going to rock down to Electric Avenue.

  • That's what I'm calling it, anyway.

  • There's a street in Tel Aviv where an experiment is taking place to electrically powered the road.

  • What that means, if this works, is that a stretch of the street would charge car batteries while the vehicles drove over it.

  • A trialist scheduled to begin this December and the system will need to be tested for a couple months before passengers can actually use it.

  • But if all goes according to plan, Chris James looks ahead to where it could lead Chris.

  • Hey, Carl, I don't know about you, But growing up, I had grand visions of what future technology would look like.

  • Flying cars, self driving trucks.

  • I mean, I even thought that one day we'd be able to teleport.

  • Obviously, the reality is that in 2020 we are a long way from some of those sci fi advancements.

  • However, there are some truly exciting and cutting edge tech developments happening around the world.

  • And today I want to tell you about one.

  • The city of Tel Aviv.

  • Israel is creating a wireless electric road, which could eventually power cars throughout the city.

  • This project is part of a pilot program in collaboration with electric on AH company, developing a system that can charge electric vehicles while they are moving.

  • The electric road itself will initially be about half a mile long, and the infrastructure under the road will charge especially equipped Busses with power.

  • It's an intricate underground system.

  • A set of copper coils are placed beneath the asphalt of the street, and the energy is transferred from the electricity grid to the road infrastructure and manages communication with the approaching vehicles.

  • A spokesperson for the city told CNN.

  • They've been hard at work on this construction of this futuristic road and that if it's successful, they'll expand the program and bring it toe other streets around the city.

  • The mayor of Tel Aviv saying it's all part of the city's strategic action plan to fight against pollution and prepare for climate change.

  • According to the New York Times, the Israeli government has invested millions into the project.

  • I'm sure many city officials and urban developers around the world will be watching and taking notes to see how this goes, as they really could be paving the roads of the future Back to you, Carl.
