  • We start today with a report about attacks on the Canadian capital. Gunfire started yesterday morning,

  • and when we put this show together, police were saying, it was possible one or more suspects were still on the loose.

  • Just few days after Canada raised its national terror alert, there were two shooting incidents in the city of Ottawa.

  • One was at the Canadian War Memorial, near the country`s parliament building, another was inside parliament.

  • A Canadian soldier at the war memorial was shot and killed.

  • Inside the parliament building, several Canadian lawmakers tweeted that a guard killed the gunman there.

  • Police said one male suspect was dead, but they also said, there was more than one person involved in the shootings.

  • This all happened two days after a man drove his car into two soldiers, killing one of them in Quebec.

  • Police fatally shot that suspect. Afterward, they called that incident a terrorist attack saying the suspect had recently converted to radical Islam.

  • The suspect at yesterday`s shootings also had reportedly converted, but officials say they don`t know if these assaults are related in any way.

  • In the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been under criticism.

  • Lawmakers and caregivers say the CDC didn`t sufficiently prepare hospitals or health care workers to safely treat Ebola patients.

  • So, the CDC has updated its guidelines. Three notable changes.

  • One, caregivers will now receive rigorous training and practice before they treat an Ebola patient.

  • Two, every inch of their skin must now be covered when they treat an Ebola patient.

  • Three, they`ll be supervised as they put on and take off their protective equipment ensuring no exposure occurs during that time.

  • The CDC`s director says, even one health care worker infection is one too many.

  • Also, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says airline passengers arriving from Ebola stricken countries,

  • must now land in one of these five U.S. airports.

  • They have enhanced Ebola screening in place.

  • Dr. Seuss`s real name was Theodore Seuss Geisel.

  • His editor once bet him that he couldn`t write a book using just 50 different words or less.

  • He did, the result - green eggs and ham. It has exactly 50 different words. It`s random!

  • As you`ve started World War II, you`ve heard about fighting in Europe, North Africa, the Pacific.

  • Here`s evidence of just how close that war came to the continental U.S.

  • You`re looking at a sonar image of a sunken German U-boat, a submarine.

  • Its location - 30 miles of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. U-576 was sunk on July 14 1942.

  • Its wreck was found just this August. Not far from a tanker it had sunk.

  • But all of the tanker`s passengers and crews survived, all aboard the German sub were killed.

  • The site`s considered a war grave and protected by international law, and it`s not the only one close to American shores.

  • The U.S. sank U-166 in the Gulf of Mexico, on July 30 1942, after it had torpedoed an American steamer.

  • Both of those ships were explored this summer.

  • U-boat sank dozens of American ships in the Gulf, but this was the only U-boat destroyed there.

  • It`s one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history - what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

  • Yesterday Malaysia`s defense minister promised the missing passenger jet would be found and another ship is about to join the search.

  • That`s centered about 1100 miles off the west coast of Australia.

  • That`s centered about 1100 miles off the west coast of Australia.

  • There`s been no sign of the plane since it vanished on March 8 with 239 people aboard.

  • It`s wreckage my hold the only answers to the mystery.

  • Following a plane crash, the search for survivors always comes first, but just as important is the search for answers. They why and the how.

  • Often, those answers are found in the black box.

  • Since the `60s, all commercial airplanes have been required to have one onboard.

  • Now, the name is a little misleading, because they are actually orange, and when we are talking about a black box,

  • we are talking about two different boxes, one being the cockpit voice recorder, the other being the flight data recorder.

  • Together, they weigh anywhere between 20 to 30 pounds, and they have to be crash proof.

  • Black boxes can survive just about anything. Temperatures up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit for an hour, forces that are 3400 Gs. Now, that`s 3400 times the force of gravity.

  • They are water proof and they can save recorded data for two years, and it`s a lot of data.

  • The cockpit voice recorder records the crew`s conversation and background noise.

  • By listening to the ambient sounds in the cockpit before a crash, experts can determine if a stall took place,

  • the RPMs of the engine, and the speed at which the plane was traveling.

  • When this sounds are cross-referenced with ground control conversations, they can even help searchers locate a crash site.

  • Then, there`s the flight data recorder. It gathers 25 hours of technical data from airplane sensors, recording several thousand discreet pieces of information.

  • Data about the air speed, altitude, pitch, acceleration, roll fuel, and the list goes on and on.

  • But to make sense of the data, first you have to find it.

  • Not an easy thing to do when a plane crashes into the ocean.

  • Both black box components are outfitted with underwater locator beacons, which self-activate the moment they come into contact with water.

  • They send pings once per second, to signal their location.

  • And can transmit data from as deep as 20,000 feet for up to 30 days. When their batteries then run out.

  • But on land, there`s no such pinging to help guide the search. Investigators have to sift through the wreckage until they find it.

  • It`s time to take a roll, you all. Here`s who is watching and requesting on our transcript page at CNNSTUDENTNEWS.COM,

  • the Balboa Academy Dragons are first up.

  • They are in the capital of Panama. Welcome to Panama City.

  • Up north in the ocean state, it`s the islanders who are next. A Middletown high school in Middletown, Rhode Island, good to see you.

  • And show me - the show me state. The Fatima High School Comets are on today`s roll from Westphalia, Missouri.

  • Hinduism is the world`s third largest religion behind Christianity and Islam.

  • That`s largely due to the number of the Hindu faithful in India, they compose 80 percent of the world`s second most populated nation.

  • Diwali is one of Hinduism`s major religious festivals. It usually falls on October or November.

  • The name Diwali comes from a Sanskrit word that means row of lights.

  • Traditionally, small oil lamps are lit on homes and temples and set afloat on rivers. It`s a celebration of a new year.

  • There are religious ceremonies, gifts exchange, new clothes and feasting. And for India, that means business in stores and online.

  • Diwali, India`s most important festival. Five days or fireworks, ritual celebration, and most importantly, shopping.

  • For retailers like Mayank Bansal, Diwali can account for up to a third of the annual sales.

  • At this year, well, it`s never been better.

  • The exponential growth largely owing to e-commerce sites like SnapDeal.

  • In the lead up to this holiday season founder and CEO Kunal Bahl says, SnapDeal sold one Smartphone every six seconds, a laptop every 20 seconds, and a pair of shoes every ten second.

  • SnapDeal works like a virtual marketplace, similar to China`s Alibaba.

  • They don`t buy or keep their own stock and the inventory.

  • So, all the products are brought here.

  • They`ve got deodorants, they`ve got smartphones, they`ve got razors and everything is brought to centers like this: packaged and then distributed.

  • SnapDeal will deliver some 20 million products across 5,000 towns and cities in India this month.

  • Other leading e-commerce sites like FlipCard at Amazon, India, both similar numbers.

  • Online retail in India grew 88 percent last year. Millions of Indians living in small towns and villages like this now shopping online with smartphones.

  • For small business owners like Bansal it`s transformed the way they think.

  • Market open for the whole of India. Now, we get customers from Kashmir to (INAUDIBLE).

  • In other words, from north to south India. There are currently 243 million Internet users in India.

  • That, too, is expected to more than double by 2020. What does it say about the potential of e-commerce in India? Well, the math is quite simple.

  • From the world`s second most populated country to the world`s number one.

  • Last story today`s from China. If you don`t mind the little acrophobia with your appetizer, why not order up a nice view with your lunch?

  • As a way to advertise his apartments, a developer recently allowed daring diners to eat their lunch on a crane or suspended from one.

  • Maybe it`s safe. You certainly wouldn`t be worried about breaking a dish.

  • And you wouldn`t have to crane your neck to look around assuming you can handle this suspense.

  • The idea is food for thought, it seems nothing is off the table, you get a great view at the skyline, from the skyline and after your meal - hey, you can just hang out!

  • Thanks for craning your eyes on CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz. We are back Friday.

We start today with a report about attacks on the Canadian capital. Gunfire started yesterday morning,
