  • Fridays are awesome! Good to have you watching CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz at the CNN Center.

  • Two American Ebola patients have survived the virus and left the hospital.

  • Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly seen here are American missionaries.

  • They caught Ebola while helping other victims in the West African country of Liberia.

  • They were evacuated earlier this month and treated at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.

  • There`s no cure for Ebola. The vast majority of those who get it, die if they are not treated.

  • Dr. Brantly and Ms. Writebol were treated and also given an experimental drug to help.

  • It`s not a proven drug, a Spanish priest who`ve got the same medicine died.

  • But doctors say the Americans no longer have virus in their system and were well enough to go home without any danger of transferring the virus to the public.

  • Dr. Brantly says, “It`s a miraculous day.”

  • The rain helped keep things calm in Ferguson, Missouri Wednesday night.

  • The town`s been on edge since an unarmed African-American man was shot and killed by a white police officer.

  • Protests, some of them violent, have been almost constant since then.

  • Most are in support of 18-year old Michael Brown.

  • Eyewitnesses say he was trying to surrender when Officer Darren Wilson shot him on August 9.

  • Some demonstrators have turned out to support Officer Wilson.

  • Police say, Brown struggled with him and reached for the policeman`s gun before the shooting.

  • A grand jury has been assembled. This is a group of people who will look at the evidence and decide whether Officer Wilson should be charged with the crime.

  • That process could take several weeks.

  • The St. Louis district attorney`s office tells me that there`s no timeline on this case.

  • Now, that being said, this has begun to be already a very complicated case.

  • Eyewitness testimonials is always problematic, because different people see things in different ways.

  • You`ve probably seen the eyewitnesses that have come and given interviews.

  • Well, they probably gave at least one statement to police.

  • hey are giving interviews on television maybe even newspapers and then finally, testimony at trial.

  • If there`s a trial. Different times can produce different variations of events, and that leads to inconsistencies, which does not help the prosecution.

  • Another big complication is, there is another side to the story.

  • Officer Darren Wilson`s side. Now, we have heard from a friend of his who recounts the story in a vastly different way from eyewitnesses, and that can be a major complication to what is the truth.

  • A third complication can be the autopsy report. Forensics, ballistics, we do have a private autopsy report, preliminary in nature from Dr. Michael Baden,

  • and there are drawings that show the entrance wounds, they appear to all be frontal entrance wounds, and this is contradictory to what some of the eyewitnesses have said on CNN.

  • There will be three autopsies in this case. We know the state autopsy, the private autopsy and federal autopsy.

  • There may be different conclusions.

  • The first autopsy had access to the majority of the items.

  • The clothes, X- Rays, witness statements, the car, maybe even a statement from the officer.

  • The private autopsy didn`t have access to that. So, their conclusions may be very different from the state`s autopsy.

  • One critical question will be whether Michael Brown`s DNA is found on the gun,

  • because if one side to the story is that there was a struggle for the gun, and Michael Brown tried to grab the gun.

  • That DNA will be critical. But remember, DNA isn`t always transferred.

  • Even if somebody touches a gun, possible another complication of this case.

  • So, we`ve got this segment called Roll Call. It`s a chance to have your school announced on CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • There is now only one way to submit a request, and you need to be at least 13 years old.

  • Got to cnnstudentnews.com. Click words says Roll Call and leave a comment at the bottom of our transcript page.

  • We`ll pick three schools from each day`s transcript. You can make one request every day, but spamming will not help you.

  • Please tell us your school name, city, state and mascot. Good luck.

  • Time for the Shoutout. Where would you find Nelson`s Column, the Cenotaph and the Duke of York`s Column.

  • You know how this works, if you think you know the answer, just shout it out.

  • Is it the Smithsonian Institution, Rome, Italy, the Parthenon or London, UK?

  • You`ve got three seconds, go.

  • These are all landmarks and you can see them all in London.

  • That`s your answer and that`s your shoutout.

  • Some of them have been standing around for a long time, hundreds of years in some case.

  • So, to breathe new life in the old monuments, a public events company recruited writers, stage and screen actors and gave dozens of London landmarks a voice.

  • Jim Boulden lands in near to a cause that goes well beyond these statues limitations.

  • They stand in our parks, in our train stations, on our streets. Often ignored and silent.

  • If you`ve ever walked along the Thames here on Blackfriars Bridge, you might have walked right past Queen Victoria.

  • But now you can tap, type or scan, and get a phone call from Queen Victoria.

  • Hello, Victoria here. Queen of England for 63 years, seven months and two days, but who`s counting.

  • Read by actors, 33 statues across London and Manchester now have a voice.

  • I think that in the world where we feel increasingly separate from our public spaces, how can we make people feel a sense of belonging?

  • And the sense of ownership and the sense of fun?

  • We can stop people from looking into their phones to looking out at the world around them.

  • At Paddington Station, voicing great engineer Isambard Brunel is Downton Abbey`s Hugh Bonneville.

  • My whole life was about trying to get somewhere.

  • Patrick Stewart becomes the Unknown Soldier.

  • Come on, stand a while.

  • And in Manchester, lending his voice to conductor Barbirolli is actor Timothy West.

  • Do you know that statue as much or you are somebody who stops and takes looking even if you don`t know who the person is.

  • Yes, I do. And I say, oh, Mr. Remember to Google, and when I get home and I forget.

  • So that`s - what`s good about this? You just give some nail sketch or somebody that you can listen to.

  • As these statues make their voices heard in the U.K., there are plans to expand this to American and other European cities.

  • So, you never know who you might get a call from next.

  • Walking away across the country. Here are three schools that requested a Roll Call mention in Thursday transcript at cnnstudentnews.com.

  • At Abraxas One, Arlene Listener High School, take a spin with the Tornadoes.

  • They are watching from Marionville, Pennsylvania.

  • Next up, Searcy, Arkansas. Good to see the Harding Academy Wild Cats are checking out CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • And in Mountain Home, Idaho, it`s all about the Tigers. Hacker Middle School is on today`s roll.

  • Now, if I were to tell you that our last segment was truck versus tortoise, you`d probably think it wouldn`t end well under the shell.

  • But nothing to fear here.

  • The truck may be a little faster, but the tortoise is bigger in this story, and despite what they say about turtles, this one can move.

  • It makes you wonder why they are not as fast running across real roads in front of real trucks.

  • I guess this is the safest way to see if one can outrun traffic.

  • I know it seems the tortoise`s competition is always just a hair faster, that it`s even toying with the turtle, the outcome is certainly not a shellacking.

  • That soups up another edition of our show.

  • Be safe if you hit the road this weekend, and race back for more CNN STUDENT NEWS on Monday. I`m Carl Azuz.

Fridays are awesome! Good to have you watching CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz at the CNN Center.
