  • Welcome back to CNN Student News. I'm Carl Azuz.

  • Hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving Holiday.

  • We're happy to see you on this last day in November.

  • An international conference on climate change,

  • known as COP21, gets started today in the French capital.

  • Almost 150 world leaders are expected to be there.

  • The main goal? An international deal

  • to limit greenhouse gas emissions across the globe.

  • Because of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris,

  • France's government has dramatically increased security.

  • It's banned large gatherings, like a massive environmentalist march

  • that was planned for Sunday.

  • There have been protests, some peaceful, some not.

  • More than 200 people were arrested yesterday for fighting with police.

  • Supporters of the conference say moving ahead with

  • it is a rebuke of terrorism. Critics say the climate is not their main concern.

  • I'm not convinced about the necessity at this moment to organize this event.

  • I think we have other priorities today.

  • Even if the environment is very important.

  • President Obama flew to Paris last night.

  • He's hoping to make climate change action a significant part

  • of his presidential legacy.

  • But it's unclear how much he can do without the support of the U. S. Congress.

  • A major incident involving Russia and Turkey happened over the break.

  • We've told you how Russian war planes are conducting airstrikes in Syria.

  • Russia supports that country's government. Turkey opposes it.

  • Last Tuesday a Turkish fighter jet shot down a Russian one.

  • The two Russian pilots ejected, only one survived.

  • Turkey says the Russian plane had violated Turkish airspace.

  • Russia says it did not.

  • Turkey says it gave the Russian plane multiple warnings

  • before it was shot down. Russia says it did not.

  • Russia says the plane was targeting ISIS terrorists.

  • Turkey says none were in the area.

  • One thing that for certain, the incident is changing the dynamics

  • of international military involvement in Syria's civil war.

  • This is what worries US pilots right now.

  • The Russian S400 anti- air missile system being unloaded in Syria.

  • Russian President Vladimir Putin says

  • this massive weapons system will protect his pilots and aircrafts

  • in the wake of Turkey shooting down a Russian jet.

  • We need to have security for our airforce and that is why

  • we have setup the modern system S400.

  • This is one of the most effective and efficient systems in the world.

  • The S- 400 will give Russia the capability

  • to control hundreds of miles of Turkish and Syrian airspace.

  • The Pentagon does not believe the system is fully operational yet,

  • but is watching developments by the hour,

  • a U. S. military official tells CNN.

  • If the Russians activate it,

  • U. S. war planes may have to start flying with specialized

  • electronic jamming aircraft to protect themselves,

  • or even forego some air strikes.

  • U. S. officials tell CNN they need an agreement on

  • how to proceed before the system is activated.

  • I think there's a lot more talk going on at the tactical

  • and operational level while the heads of state remain bellicose,

  • but it is just upping the ante and you never know when this might happen.

  • Putin remains furious, also saying the U. S. knew ahead of time

  • the location of the Russian jets but did nothing to stop the shoot down.

  • Two U. S. military officials tell CNN the U. S. did not know.

  • Time to find out who's on the roll.

  • All of these requests were made at CNNStudentNews. com.

  • We're starting in the Mount Rushmore state of South Dakota.

  • Tripp- Delmont school district is there,

  • and the Nighthawks of Tripp are watching.

  • In Bowling Green, Ohio, the Bobcats are on the prowl.

  • Great to see Bowling Green High School.

  • And in Kobe, Japan, hello to all of our viewers at Nada high school.

  • Thank you for making us part of your day.

  • In the U. S. today is traditionally known a day of online sales

  • known as cyber Monday, the 28th was small business Saturday,

  • the 27th black Friday.

  • Retailers hope these different terms encourage Americans to shop,

  • as the holiday shopping season gets into gear right after Thanksgiving.

  • This years Black Friday sales were a mixed bag.

  • Spending at brick and mortar retailers,

  • so physical stores that people walk into,

  • were down more than a billion dollars from last year.

  • But online sales for Black Friday increased by more than $ 33 million from 2014.

  • Looking at Black Friday alone doesn't give the whole picture though.

  • Eager for early deals from this Walmart near Atlanta,

  • to this snowy parking lot in Denver,

  • to Macy's flagship store in Manhattan The difference,

  • this was Thanksgiving night.

  • The way it's been the last couple of years,

  • Thanksgiving is the best night to do it.

  • The shift from Black Friday continues.

  • According to the National Retail Federation,

  • more consumers plan to shop on Thanksgiving Day this year than last.

  • And sales tracker Adobe estimated more than $ 1. 7 billion

  • was spent online on Thanksgiving Day.

  • In Arlington, Virginia at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City Friday afternoon,

  • traffic had picked up from the morning.

  • The big indicators that we look for is not only foot traffic

  • but foot traffic with shopping bags, and we're seeing a lot of that.

  • So, that's a good indicator already early in the season.

  • Some shoppers less focused on a specific item.

  • It's not too bad today actually, but there's some good deals,

  • and you can start your Christmas shopping, be festive.

  • There are good deals here, I think. Better than on regular days.

  • Bargains very much in consumers' minds.

  • Despite lower gas prices and lower unemployment recently,

  • retail sales have lagged.

  • The Black Friday frenzy was still alive and well in some places

  • like the Toys" R" Us store in New Yorks Times Square,

  • but their may have been a bit of nostalgia at play.

  • The location will close when it's lease runs out in January,

  • another sign of a changing retail landscape at the holidays, and beyond.

  • In Washington, I'm Karen Kafa.

  • But folks aren't just shopping, they're travelling to get home for the holidays.

  • And flight attendants aboard planes aren't just there to help keep them comfortable,

  • they sometimes save lives.

  • In the 1930s, the first stewardesses, female flight attendants,

  • were all registered nurses. That's not the case now,

  • but today's attendants still know life saving techniques,

  • like CPR that you've studied in health class,

  • and there's also a doctor on call.

  • The holiday season is the busiest travel time of the year,

  • with millions flying to celebrate with friends and family.

  • But that also means a higher chance of in- flight medical emergencies

  • like heart attacks, strokes, even births.

  • And flight attendants who have to know how to keep passengers safe,

  • even at cruising altitude. Welcome, welcome.

  • I will brief the crew as to the scenario.

  • Out of all the training that a flight attendant might go through,

  • how big a component is the medical and safety part of it?

  • The medical and safety part is a heavy component of it.

  • And we do put a heavy emphasis on responding with CPR knowledge,

  • using the AEDs and the equipment on board the aircraft

  • that we have available to respond for basic first aid instances as well, too.

  • You try and put people through, essentially,

  • real life scenarios through the training.

  • I mean you make it as realistic as possible.

  • How do you do that? What do you do?

  • We actually use scenarios that we have experienced in- flight.

  • Excuse me I'm just not feeling well.

  • Okay, sir are you okay?

  • Some of the scenarios that we bring into training could be something

  • like a passenger is in discomfort.

  • They're feeling weak, light headed, and how to respond,

  • page for medical assistance on board,

  • how to respond appropriately using StatMD as a resource

  • to report the symptoms that we see.

  • Contact the flight deck, get them to page StatMD,

  • and page for medical assistance.

  • One of the most valuable resources the flight crews have at their disposal,

  • Is a service called StatMD.

  • StatMD is a ground based support center

  • that provides medical consultations for in- flight emergencies.

  • These are specially trained physicians

  • who can help the crew make assessments and also give recommendations

  • on how to treat the patients.

  • Can we also put him on his side to prevent him from aspirating if he vomits?

  • What is the call that is absolutely the worst call?

  • It can vary. I mean, I think the ones that probably raise

  • everyone's blood pressure are ones where someone's in labor,

  • an imminent child birth. And we've actually had that,

  • we've had babies delivered on flights.

  • And then obviously the most severe cases are someone that

  • actually goes into cardiac arrest.

  • And so they may be applying the defibrillator and defibrillator shocking.

  • Stand clear.

  • Hard to tell whether the people who built this are bigger fans

  • of Legos or the Green Bay Packers.

  • Both were incorporated in this scale model of Lambeau Field,

  • pieced together by students from the Milwaukee School of Engineering.

  • It's 172nd the size of the real thing,

  • and it took more than 130, 000 Legos to make.

  • Now on permanent display at a museum in Wisconsin,

  • the model includes the field, the stadium, even the entryway

  • to the whole complex.

  • And like the team itself, the Lego stadium is Packered with solid blocking.

  • It's got strong lines, it doesn't pass on upright accuracy.

  • Precision is the field's goal and it gets a kick out of it Lam- boldface success.

  • I'm Carl Azuz, and today's show his reached the end zone.
