  • Hey, welcome to this June 4th edition of CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz.

  • Thank you for watching our penultimate program of the 2014-2015 school year.

  • We`re starting today in Boston, Massachusetts,

  • where law enforcement officials shot

  • and killed a terrorism suspect earlier this week.

  • They`ve been monitoring Usaama Rahim for years.

  • An official says the FBI noticed a change in his behavior recently.

  • That prompted authorities to approach him

  • outside of drugstores in Tuesday morning.

  • Investigators say Rahim was planning to randomly kill police officers.

  • The FBI says it doesn`t think there`s any concern for public safety at this point.

  • There has been another arrest in the case.

  • Today in Everett, Massachusetts, a man in custody,

  • police making the arrest last night in connection with the fatal shooting

  • of a terror suspect in Boston by police Tuesday morning.

  • It all began around 7:00 in the morning

  • when the FBI and Boston police descended on this CVS,

  • aiming to question the suspect, 26-year-old Usaama Rahim.

  • Yes, we have a gentleman, black male, 6 feet, coming out now with a knife.

  • Rahim had been under 24-hour surveillance by the Joint Terrorism Task Force,

  • radicalized according to one official, by ISIS and other extremist influences.

  • The FBI says Rahim made threats against police on social media.

  • All right, there`s shots fired, units shots fired.

  • When officers approached him, Rahim lunged at them with this knife,

  • authorities say, before a federal agent and Boston Police officer fired,

  • hitting him in the torso and abdomen.

  • The officers, again, gave several commands for him to drop the weapon.

  • And unfortunately, he came at the officers and, you know,

  • they did what they were trained to do.

  • And, unfortunately, they had to take a life,

  • and that`s never an easy decision for any officer to do.

  • Rahim`s brother, an imam at a mosque in California, paints a different picture,

  • saying on social media that his younger brother

  • was on his cell phone with their father,

  • waiting for the bus when he was confronted by police

  • and shot in the back three times.

  • He says his brother`s last words were, "I can`t breathe!"

  • The shooting is now under investigation,

  • and Boston Police say they have a video documenting the entire event.

  • We saw the video.

  • It appears that the law enforcement officers

  • were backing away before they exercised deadly force.

  • Yesterday, police showed community leaders surveillance video of the shooting.

  • Afterward, they said Rahim was not on the phone when he was shot

  • and that he was not shot in the back.

  • Updating you now on political news:

  • there are two new names on the list for the 2016 U.S. presidential race.

  • Martin O`Malley launched his presidential campaign on May 30th.

  • He`s the former governor of Maryland,

  • former mayor of Baltimore

  • and he`s seeking the nomination for the Democratic Party.

  • Lindsey Graham made his campaign official on June 1st.

  • He`s a U.S. senator from South Carolina

  • and he`s seeking the nomination for the Republican Party.

  • So, the field is widening.

  • There are now three Democrats who are officially candidates,

  • nine Republicans are officially running.

  • The primaries and caucuses will determine the one candidate

  • from each major party who will be on the 2016 presidential ballot.

  • Anyone who knows that capital of Ghana knows

  • the location of the third school in today`s call of the roll.

  • We`re starting in the Palmetto State of South Carolina.

  • It`s where the Knights are watching today

  • at Stratford High School in Goose Creek.

  • The Black Knights are also online in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.

  • Shout- out to Point Pleasant Junior/Senior High School.

  • And in the Ghanaian capital of Accra.

  • Hello to everyone watching at Lincoln Community School representing West Africa.

  • Sticking with the subject of geography.

  • The Torres Strait is located between Papua New Guinea and Northeast Australia.

  • There`s a fish that`s appeared there recently,

  • an invasive species that authorities were hoping

  • will never make it to the Australian mainland.

  • They`re actually able to pull themselves out of the water hole

  • and move themselves across land into the next water hole.

  • They are eaten by larger fishes or birds

  • that became large (INAUDIBLE) of those species, so that`s where the problem lies.

  • When he was a student in India,

  • Adarsh Alphons got in some serious trouble for doodling.

  • But he kept on drawing and eventually found himself

  • commissioned to do a painting for Pope John Paul II.

  • When he moved to New York, Alphons was trouble

  • to find that almost 30 percent of public schools

  • didn`t have a full time art teacher. So, he opened up free classes.

  • Art has a power to let children discover who they are.

  • Every child needs to have a space for them to create.

  • When I moved to New York City,

  • I noticed that access to our education was lacking.

  • I decided we need to be the ones to put art in the hands of kids.

  • We open our classes in public libraries that are near the schools that need us most.

  • Our goal is not to create artists.

  • Our goal is to let kids discover themselves.

  • I use art as an escape. I do look forward to coming here every week,

  • and on most occasions, I persuade them to let us stay longer.

  • See where you can take it, right?

  • After we bring art into their lives, they become more confident.

  • The changes are quite remarkable.

  • At the end of every semester,

  • we showcase these students' artwork

  • in contemporary art galleries in New York`s art district.

  • I tried to use some water to make it darker and tuned for the weather.

  • When I saw my artwork in a real gallery, I feel proud of myself.

  • That`s amazing.

  • I hope it sets a spark that it`s OK to chase after your dreams,

  • but you should go after it boldly and fearlessly, and that anything is possible.

  • Number one movie at the U.S. box office right now was "San Andreas".

  • It`s a disaster film starring a massive earthquake.

  • It also stars the Rock, so that`s kind of a built-in fun.

  • But exactly how realistic is this work of fiction.

  • CNN`s Jeanne Moos spoke to a seismologist.

  • A tsunami bearing down on a Golden Gate Bridge, skyscrapers collapsing.

  • Can`t fault an earthquake blockbuster for going a little overboard.

  • And before it falls through the cracks,

  • CNN and the film studio are both owned by Time Warner.

  • How does a seismologist size up "San Andreas"?

  • I would definitely give it two thumbs up. It had me on the edge of my seat.

  • And the tsunami really had scientists rolling their eyes.

  • Oh, it`s way too big.

  • It`s all a question of magnitude, 9.6, according to the movie.

  • But the San Andreas Fault isn`t deep

  • or long enough to generate that big of a quake. Two cities get hit.

  • Could you lose both cities, San Francisco and L.A.?

  • I think it`s highly, highly, highly unlikely.

  • Could the Hoover Dam collapse?

  • No. I think the Hoover Dam is safe.

  • You know, we all laughed at that scene and said,

  • "There is water behind the Hoover Dam?"

  • That`s a little dry humor about the drought.

  • Seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones posed with the Rock at the premier

  • and live- tweeted scientific inaccuracies.

  • When the Rock approaches the gaping fault like,

  • Dr. Jones tweeted, "OMG! A chasm?

  • If the fault could open up, there`d be no friction.

  • With no friction, there`d be no earthquake."

  • But there`s one thing the scientists love.

  • The movie repeats the "duck, cover and hold on" mantra experts recommend.

  • And if it makes people prepare, what is a little earthquake earthquakery.

  • So, maybe there`s a little cinemagic here

  • and there that seemed too special effective for seismologist

  • who decides it didn`t size up.

  • But as long as the science is deafening,

  • it`s certainly something Hollywood approve of.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. Keeping it real to real for CNN STUDENT NEWS.
