  • I'm Carla Zeus.

  • Hope you had a good weekend.

  • It was over that weekend that the U.

  • S House of Representatives passed the Biden administration's proposed stimulus package for the U.

  • S economy.

  • It is not yet law.

  • It must first pass the Senate, and President Joe Biden has asked that chamber to take quick action on the legislation.

  • This is the third major spending effort by the U.

  • S.

  • Government to try to confront the economic problems triggered by the coronavirus pandemic.

  • The two other stimulus packages came last year under then President Donald Trump.

  • In March, he signed one costing $2.2 trillion.

  • In December, he signed another costing $900 billion.

  • President Biden's proposed stimulus plan would cost $1.9 trillion.

  • Mhm.

  • We have no time to waste.

  • If we act now decisively, quickly and boldly, we can finally get ahead of this virus.

  • We can finally get our economy moving again, and the people of this country have suffered far too much for too long.

  • We need to relieve that suffering.

  • On Saturday, the house voted 219 to 212 to move the bill forward.

  • All of the votes to pass it came from Democrats, but to Democrats joined all 210 Republicans in voting against the bill will help people get back to work.

  • No.

  • Will it help students get back in the classroom immediately?

  • No.

  • Will it help get vaccines to those who want it?

  • The answer is no.

  • It is entirely partisan and has the wrong priorities.

  • This proposal is likely to see some changes before the Senate votes on it.

  • As it stands now, though, it would include direct payments of $1400.

  • Too many Americans, extra assistance to people who have lost their jobs, money for state and local governments and schools, funding to distribute vaccines and more covid tests.

  • That's all part of it.

  • So is a controversial part of the legislation that would raise the U.

  • S.

  • Federal minimum wage.

  • Since 2000 and nine, it's been set at $7.25 per hour.

  • States and local governments can require a higher minimum wage, and many of them do.

  • But the federal one is the lowest wage employers can pay in the United States.

  • The Biden administration's proposal would more than double the minimum wage to $15 per hour by the year 2025.

  • But political experts say that's one part of the legislation that's likely to be removed by the Senate.

  • The Congressional Budget Office, a nonpartisan government agency, estimates that increasing the minimum wage would help 900 million Americans by raising their earnings above the poverty level.

  • But the CBO also estimates that doing this would come at a cost of 1.4 million jobs.

  • This is why federal minimum wage proposals are difficult to get passed through Congress.

  • If the Senate does remove that part of the stimulus plan, the bill would then go back to the House for another vote before it can get to President Biden's desk for his signature.

  • What has been the psychological impact of the coronavirus pandemic?

  • We've covered the costs in terms of lives lost, restrictions imposed economies affected.

  • But health experts and a number of studies suggest the pandemic has taken a toll on many People's Mental Health Health line dot com, a medical information website, reports that signs of anxiety and depression have appeared in many American students.

  • The U.

  • S Centers for Disease Control says changes in routines, missed vacations, celebrations and get togethers switching back and forth between in person and virtual learning.

  • All of this can challenge the well being of Children and young people beyond the threat of getting sick.

  • And while scientists don't know how serious these psychological challenges are or how long they'll last, the problem isn't limited to American Children.

  • For 23 year old Yasmin Lbd wa, it was last autumn that her dream of studying in Paris hit the reality of the pandemic.

  • So I was starting my studies and thinking, I'm going to arrive, make loads of friends, joined lots of student societies, try lots of activities and then, boom, I'm stuck in a house all alone between its four walls.

  • Yeah, so Yasmine took a painting instead.

  • But the pandemic has also cost her her peace of mind before she was able to teach Arabic classes to make ends meet in the end, the too difficult things to deal with other financial side and then the psychological side.

  • So for the financial side, there is help from authorities from associations.

  • There are food distributions But for the psychological side, we're really on our own.

  • After nearly a year of lockdowns and restrictions, French authorities are warning of a third wave not of Covid but of mental health issues, including among the countries.

  • More than a million and a half university students.

  • You're building your life.

  • You're protected under all you.

  • You want to become this.

  • You want to do this and that and then pump, You cannot do anything.

  • You're stuck.

  • So we have to let them know Right now we're in the middle of the storm, but we have still visualize where we're gonna go.

  • Otherwise we'll get we're gonna be stuck in the storm with no vision that creates despair.

  • But despair is not necessarily the only difficulty.

  • For some, the time of their lives meant to be the most Footloose and fancy free has become a matter of survival.

  • The line here is for a food bank set up in the heart of Paris by students who realized that some of their classmates were no longer able to eat the sacrifice generation.

  • Not only can we not have a social life or go to class or get a great quality education On top of that, we find ourselves in this extremely precarious situation.

  • Bottom a few weeks says that many students who had been able to turn to their parents in time of need could no longer do so.

  • Their parents to, he says, have lost their jobs.

  • The students coming in here aren't just offered food, but also psychological support.

  • This food distribution center can help 500 students each week, but the organizers say that the demand is in fact, at least 10 times that.

  • Melissa Bell, CNN Paris 12th Trivia.

  • What species of dolphin is the smallest?

  • Hector's Dolphin, Rizzo's dolphin spinner, dolphin or dusky dolphin?

  • The smallest dolphins are Hector's dolphins there, usually around 4 to 5 ft long and £100.

  • And they are rare.

  • You will only find Hector's dolphins off the coast of New Zealand, and there's a subspecies of them called Maui dolphins, whose population has dwindled to just a few dozen left in the wild.

  • The biggest threat to Maui dolphins is when they're caught by accident in the fishing industry disease, danger to their habitat and tourism are also suspected in reducing their numbers.

  • But there's a new eye in the sky.

  • And by that we mean a drone that aims to help Maui dolphins by locating, identifying and following them.

  • The aircraft runs on electric and gas power.

  • It's estimated to cost around $150,000.

  • And its aim is to use artificial intelligence technology to keep close tabs on the 63 adult Maui dolphins that are still alive.

  • On the opposite end of the dolphin spectrum, in terms of numbers at least, is the common dolphin.

  • How common is it?

  • Well, exact numbers are hard to come by, but these mammals are often found in pods by the 1000.

  • They are common in all over the world there, neither endangered nor threatened.

  • And when they stampede, so to speak.

  • There a sight to see for sightseers.

  • Four.

  • Mm.

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • Look at my God.

  • Hey, patience pays off.

  • Doesn't change.

  • You know that better than anyone.

  • Keep it.

  • Yeah.

  • Mhm.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • It's amazing how they don't get bottlenose together, especially without any social distance.

  • They ballou gotta be so coordinated to know who's got the right of whale.

  • They must have gotten organized on the Dolph Internet.

  • I hear they run a killer podcast before we just terrible before we don't finish for the day.

  • I want to give a shout out to Sirocco High School.

  • You guys Cerak in Oak Creek, Colorado.

  • The only place we look for the shot at schools we mentioned is on our YouTube channel.

  • So we hope to see you there.
