  • With Donald Trump no longer facing any primary opposition, the focus tonight is on the Democrats

  • ongoing contest and the general election battle ahead.

  • The focus on West Virginia, the Clinton campaign believes they will lose that state.

  • A bit ironic, eight years ago she won that state over Barack Obama by some 40 points.

  • Let's assume Bernie Sanders wins West Virginia tonight 60 / 40, right? Remember, 301,

  • if he wins 60 / 40, because of the number of delegates at stake, that's a net gain of only five delegates.

  • That's the problem for Bernie Sanders right now. It's the same rules that have kept him competitive.

  • The proportionality of the democratic rules make it hard from him to catch up right now.

  • While Trump easily wins, without any opposition, the Republican presidential primary in West Virginia.

  • The fact that West Virginia is Trump territory is really a perfect illustration of kind of voter

  • that he appealed to so successfully.

  • Bernie Sanders is the winner.

  • A lot of Clinton's supporter say get out. Bernie Sanders supporters are energized.

  • It's called the Daytona 500 for a reason. Let him, he has every right to stay in the race,

  • because he still has a possibility.

  • And still winning.

  • But it's really hard to see, he has to win 66 % of the remaining pledged delegates just to catch her.

  • Right.

  • To beat her by one. It's very unlikely, but it's a crazy year. Let's play on.

  • Hi, I'm Carl Azuz, thank you for watching. We start with the quick update on the US presidential

  • nomination process. Voters in Nebraska and West Virginia went to the polls earlier this week

  • to help nominate a Republican candidate for president. Businessman Donald Trump

  • is now running unopposed. He won both states and he is now 90 delegates away from the 1, 237 he'll need

  • to clinch the Republican nomination for president. He is expected to do that and become the party's nominee.

  • For the Democrats, even though former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is still in the lead,

  • it was her challenger, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who won in West Virginia Tuesday. Nebraska had

  • it's Democratic vote back in March. So as of right now, former Secretary Clinton has 1, 719 pledged delegates,

  • and 516 superdelegates. Senator Sanders has 1, 425 pledged delegates and 41 superdelegates.

  • A Democrat needs 2, 383 delegates to win the party nomination. Most of the lawmakers in Brazil's Senate

  • said they plan to vote to move forward with impeachment proceedings against Brazil's president.

  • Teachers, you can find the results of that vote at CNN. com.

  • This does not mean that Brazilian leader Dilma Rousseff has been removed from power.

  • If a simple majority of the senate votes in favor of impeachment proceedings, it means she has to

  • leave the presidential palace for 180 days, and defend herself in a trial. Rousseff says she'll fight with

  • every means possible to finish out her term, which is scheduled to end in 2018. Brazil is the largest

  • and most populated country in South America. It's the continent's largest economy,

  • it's a regional leader. Because of all that, and the challenges it faces as it prepares to host

  • the Summer Olympics, officials around the world are watching.

  • Dilma Rousseff is one of the most unpopular presidents in Brazil's history, possibly in the world.

  • So what happened after she was re- elected in October 2014?

  • Well to start with, the economy is tanking. Many call it a depression, high unemployment,

  • high inflation. And that means a lot of Brazilians frankly aren't in the mood to put up with political corruption.

  • Investigators had already started to reveal a bribery scandal involving the state run oil company Petrobras,

  • before Rousseff's re- election. But it snowballed afterwards with accusations against top business leaders

  • and politicians in Rouseeff's Workers' Party. That meant that while Rousseff herself wasn't implicated,

  • millions of Brazilians have taken to the street. And with public opinion in their favor,

  • opposition lawmakers decided to forge ahead with an impeachment motion in congress.

  • Accusing Rouseff not of corruption, but of breaking budget laws to try and hide the sorry

  • state of the economy, ahead of reelection. Now the impeachment proceedings will

  • drag on for months. All of this, however, is going to play out on the global stage,

  • as Brazil gears up for the Olympic games in August.

  • The Zika virus, which can cause birth defects in the unborn babies of pregnant women,

  • is spreading in Brazil and throughout South and Central America. It's mainly transmitted

  • by bites from certain types of mosquitoes. And as the weather and the mosquito season heat up,

  • health officials are concerned the virus could make an impact in the US. They've been recommending

  • wearing long sleeves and pants, and using insect repellent whenever we go outside.

  • And there are some extra steps we can take just outside our doorsteps.

  • Mosquitoes grow in the water, that's how they hatch. The female mosquito puts the eggs in the water.

  • And three to seven days later, after a number of changes, a real mosquito flies out to bite you.

  • You get rid of the water, you get rid of the mosquitoes. You get rid of the next batch,

  • the next hatch of mosquitoes. So look for bottlecaps, or solo cups, or bird baths, or dog dishes,

  • or kiddie pools, or tires in your yard. Even English Ivy can make its own problems with its little cup of water

  • that it holds. If it holds it long enough, it can be a breeding ground for more mosquitoes.

  • So if you eliminate the water, you eliminate the hatch. You break the cycle

  • and you reduce the population of mosquitos in your area.

  • If you're not making one request on each day's transcript page at cnnstudentnews. com,

  • you're missing your chance to be on the roll call. Columbia Falls Junior High is here today.

  • It's from Columbia Falls, Montana, and we welcome the Wildcats. Colmer Middle School is in Mississippi,

  • the city of Pascagoula, watch out for the Panthers while you're there. And not too far from the Gulf of Riga,

  • it's great to see the International School of Latvia is watching in the community of Pinki.

  • Paula Claussen couldn't accept what she saw just outside Tijuana, Mexico. Lean- tos,

  • where some people are living, were blown right over by high winds. Rats, tarantulas and scorpions

  • could walk right into some of the makeshift homes there. This is according to Project Mercy,

  • a nonprofit that Claussen founded in 1991. It's changing lives in the region, one house at a time.

  • San Diego is one of the wealthiest cities in the States.

  • But just right across the border, it's a different world. On the outskirts of Tijuana there

  • is no running water, no sewage system. The floors are dirt and vermin crawl under the walls.

  • It's hard for Americans to imagine. 25 years ago I went just to donate clothes

  • and I was shocked, I knew I had to do something to try to help them.

  • I started an organization that builds homes for people in need, free of charge.

  • Hello.

  • All the water comes through and wets the bed.

  • This is so dangerous, all these wires.

  • In order to receive a house, we require that families work in a construction of a house for their neighbors.

  • One, Volunteers from California come down to build. They come away with a total different attitude.

  • It creates a bond. We have developed a house that is sturdy, which can be built in one day.

  • These are our neighbors. To see the joy and the relief on their faces, that gives me the energy to continue.

  • One thing you'll notice about this hiker on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, is the odd shape

  • of the backpack. You could fit a pizza in there! And they did. This was a publicity stunt that won

  • Pizza Hut the Guinness World Record for highest elevation pizza delivery, 19, 347 feet up. Pizza Hut

  • says it used an airplane, a motor vehicle, and a relay of professional hikers to deliver the pizza.

  • It took three days, and even with a battery heated backpack, we're not sure how fresh the pepperoni

  • and extra cheese pie tasted. In terms of flavor, it might not have mountained too much,

  • but in terms of experience, it was at the summit. We just hope they tipped the driver, and the pilot,

  • and the hikers, because after that mountain of effort, a little extra dough is always in good taste.

  • I'm Carl Azuz, and we'll deliver more news and puns tomorrow.

With Donald Trump no longer facing any primary opposition, the focus tonight is on the Democrats
