  • Hi, I'm Carla Zeus.

  • As we get started on Tuesday's edition of CNN, 10 members of the U.

  • S.

  • House of Representatives are preparing for a vote on a $1.9 trillion bill intended to stimulate the U.

  • S economy.

  • The House first approved the bill in late February, and it passed in the Senate last weekend, but that chambermaid changes to the legislation.

  • For one thing, it eliminated the bills increase in the federal minimum wage, as political experts expected.

  • So now the House must vote on the legislation again before it can be sent to President Joe Biden's desk for his signature.

  • This week's House vote is expected to go along party lines like it did in the Senate.

  • Democrats are likely to vote for the bill.

  • Republicans are likely to vote against it because Democrats controlled the House with the majority of seats there.

  • The chamber is expected to pass the legislation.

  • This would be the third major spending bill that the U.

  • S government has enacted to counteract the economic problems triggered by the coronavirus pandemic.

  • 12th trivia.

  • The name of the Taliban, Afghanistan's former rulers, comes from what word students based supreme or task in Afghanistan's official language of Pashto.

  • Taliban means students The Taliban gained power in Afghanistan in the 19 nineties.

  • There, a Muslim fundamentalist group that worked to establish a strict interpretation of Islam in Afghanistan.

  • They didn't allow TV, movies or music, and they limited the education that girls could get or banned it all together.

  • After the September 11th terrorist attacks in 2000 and one, the United States led a group of other countries in removing the Taliban from power.

  • The Taliban had allowed Al Qaeda terrorists to live and train in Afghanistan, and it refused to hand them over to America following the attacks.

  • 20 years later, the Taliban remain a powerful force in the country, and scars remain from their rule.

  • In the 19 nineties, a game of cricket underway, with a few onlookers resting on rocky ground.

  • A peaceful scene at the foot of a mountain with towering cutouts where to Buddha statues once stood now filled with scaffolding and rubble.

  • This man says he was here 20 years ago when Taliban forces, who had taken control of the province over the course of a few weeks, obliterated the statues as part of its campaign to destroy pre Islamic artifacts they considered to be an assault on Islam.

  • We were going to the bazaar when the Taliban picked us up on the way and then took us to the Buddha's.

  • There were around 45 other people, and the Taliban forced us all to carry the explosives.

  • They told us to leave when the task was done, and then they detonated the Buddhas and dust filled the entire valley.

  • The monuments have been part of the landscape of Bamiyan for about 1500 years, surviving Genghis Khan and centuries of war.

  • In March 2000 and one, the Taliban relentlessly hacked away at them with tank fire and explosives until they were shattered.

  • We realized that nothing was left but an empty frame and an identity that had been destroyed.

  • My feeling was that we had a historical artifact that had been turned into such a miserable state in the two decades since their destruction.

  • Some have tried to recreate the likenesses through technology, But to the people of Bamian, it is a towering loss of a piece of history reduced to boulders, dust and memories.

  • Yeah, we first reported on Linda Dowdy a year ago.

  • She's a CNN hero who helps rescue harbor seals in Maine.

  • She started her own conservation group after others she worked with closed down because they lost funding.

  • Despite the shutdowns made when the coronavirus pandemic hit, Daddy's organization expanded and it was allowed to stay open.

  • Keeping up It's good work.

  • Yeah, releasing a seal is really bitter, sweet, and as much as I'm excited to see that animal be released, it's also hard in the sense of seeing the animal now gone mhm.

  • You know, growing up on the coast of Maine, I was exposed to marine mammals and wildlife in general.

  • Since our local areas really surrounded by water, you do a lot of things on the ocean.

  • It's the seals doing their thing.

  • And I just remember being so amazing.

  • What I love about seals is they really look similar to dogs, and they also really charismatic.

  • It's really neat to see them in their natural environment, and they're very curious.

  • In general, these animals are special to me, so I ended up becoming a marine biologist.

  • I would say the biggest threat to these animals is human impacts.

  • We may have an animal that may have been entangled or hit by a boat or injured from a prop wound.

  • With the increase in human activity on beaches, these animals don't get time to rest and regain their energy.

  • Taking selfies with seals can actually cause a lot of stress and harm for that animal.

  • When harbor seal pups are born, they stay with their mom for about four weeks.

  • Mom usually goes off to forage for food and then come back again.

  • If there's any human involvement, there's people that are around that pup or pick up and move that pup.

  • The mom may not come back, and once that abandonment occurs, that seal pup is not going to survive.

  • Over the years, nonprofits and state agencies for marine mammal response and rescue either closed down or lost funding.

  • So that's where I decided we're going to help.

  • Mhm.

  • Good morning, miss to 60 for our organization runs a 24 hour reporting hotline for marine mammal strandings.

  • 1 84 is currently the one that's upside down.

  • We cover approximately 2500 miles along the coast of me.

  • Most of the animals that we respond to is about 90% seals.

  • We only intervene if needed.

  • When an animal comes into our center, we usually take blood, start an I V and get a whole kind of diagnostics of what the animals dealing with and then come up with a medical plan.

  • So he's on flu therapy for today to try to break up some of this pneumonia that he has.

  • I have attended every release because once you bring an animal into your center, I feel 100% responsibility for that animal.

  • Oh, you're so adorable.

  • You want to see that animal will be released because it start to finish of that animal story.

  • I just want to welcome you to our steel released today.

  • We have to harbor seals that we will be releasing both.

  • These animals came in really underweight and emaciated.

  • They're feeling fat and happy today, which is what we like.

  • 5432 one.

  • Yeah, it's been now 20 years that I've been doing this, which seems like I just started yesterday and the feeling has not changed me.

  • I love it now more than ever.

  • I can't imagine there not being a place in the state of Maine for these animals.

  • to have a chance to be cared for.

  • And I will do that as long as I can.

  • Yeah, I feel this intense responsibility to help these animals and really, this is what I was putting on this earth to do.

  • So back in the day, like the 16 hundreds, letters were sometimes locked.

  • They were intricately folded and sealed to become their own envelopes.

  • Hundreds of these locked letters that couldn't be delivered between 16 89 and 17 oh six were stored in a postmasters trunk in the Netherlands.

  • They were given to a museum in 1926 and conservators didn't want to open and potentially damage them.

  • But X ray scanners and computer algorithms were recently used to extract a letters words without actually unfolding the document.

  • It revealed a request from one cousin to another for the death certificate of a relative.

  • Researchers don't know why it wasn't delivered, but it's a new glimpse into the daily lives of people who lived ages ago makes you wonder what the others contain.

  • Maybe an unprecedented patent that's now a patent mystery, maybe in a granted grant that would have granted rights to the letter.

  • How many documents remained lock elements.

  • How many settlements remained unsettled?

  • Did impact get packed before it could ever make an impact?

  • Did star crossed lovers never get to envelope?

  • These mysteries can now unfold Benton High School in Benton, Louisiana.

  • Hello, and thank you for your comment on our YouTube channel.
