  • New developments in the growing international fight

  • against the ISIS terrorist group. That leads off our show today.

  • I`m Carl Azuz for CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • In addition to last week`s terrorist attacks in Paris, France,

  • which killed at least 129 people,

  • ISIS has claimed responsibility for bringing down a Russian passenger plane last month.

  • That happened over Egypt`s Sinai Peninsula.

  • Yesterday, the head of the Russian federal security service

  • said the plane was bombed,

  • that it had more than two pounds of explosives on it.

  • And Russia is offering $50 million for information

  • that leads to the arrest of those responsible.

  • Russia also announced it had doubled its airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria,

  • and that it would work more closely with France to fight international terrorism.

  • An international manhunt is stretching across Europe for Salah Abdeslam.

  • He`s a 26-year-old suspect in the Paris terrorist attacks

  • whose brotherIbrahim was one of the suicide bombers.

  • Also, yesterday, a soccer game between Netherlands and Germany was cancelled.

  • The stadium in Hannover, Germany, evacuated.

  • Police said they had concrete intelligence that someone wanted to bomb it.

  • German Chancellor Angela Merkel was planning to attend the game.

  • As of last night, no arrests have been made.

  • It`s not known if ISIS had anything to do with this,

  • but the group, its affiliates and sympathizers are being closely watched worldwide.

  • It`s the best funded terrorist organization in history.

  • ISIS controls big territory in Syria and Iraq.

  • And it runs its pillaging machine like a business,

  • to fund its ultimate goal, one ginormous Islamic State.

  • Let`s follow the money:

  • At its heart, ISIS is a criminal enterprise.

  • In 2014, the U.S. Treasury Department says

  • it made at least half a billion dollars from seizing banks

  • in northern and western Iraq.

  • But banks aren`t the only target. ISIS fighters loot houses,

  • they steal cars, chop them up for parts, they trade weapons, and people.

  • It`s a revenue stream that thrives on territory.

  • The more they control, the more they can steal.

  • There`s a reason ISIS has become compared to the mafia.

  • It extorts protection money from the people it lords over.

  • You want to move your truck down the highway, pay a tax.

  • You want to move money out of your own bank account, it will cost you.

  • You`re a farmer with 100 sheep, ISIS takes five.

  • The extortion game earns it several million dollars every month.

  • ISIS has made millions selling oil from fields it controls in Syria and Iraq,

  • as much as $100 million in 2014.

  • It`s less now that the price of oil has fallen,

  • and the U.S. and its allies started bombing refineries.

  • But ISIS doesn`t need refineries to make money from oil.

  • The unrefined crude it pumps out of the ground is worth plenty.

  • ISIS fighters smuggle in barrels across the border or in containers

  • small enough to fit under a truck.

  • A middle man buys the crude oil or whatever ISIS

  • has managed to refine and sells it on the black market.

  • Kidnapping for ransom also big business.

  • In 2014, ISIS made at least $20 million that way.

  • The United States says it won`t negotiate with terrorists,

  • but some European countries do and so do wealthy Arab families

  • whose relatives are targeted.

  • ISIS is taking sledgehammers to ancient artifacts.

  • But it also makes money looting and selling stolen treasures.

  • A giant sculpture of an Assyrian idol might be destroyed,

  • while a gold Babylonian coin is sold,

  • because the coin was never worshipped.

  • And that`s how ISIS makes its millions.

  • It`s become a swirling controversy in the U.S.

  • The Obama administration`s plan to accept 10,000 additional Syrian refugees next year.

  • Why?

  • French officials say at least one of the suspects at last week`s terrorist attacks

  • in Paris slipped into Europe, among the millions fleeing Syria`s civil war.

  • And most of the suspected terrorists had spent time in Syria.

  • The U.S. government isn`t changing its plans to accept more refugees,

  • saying it can safely resettle them in America.

  • But a Republican lawmaker on the House Intelligence Committee says

  • there`s no real vetting, no detailed investigations in place of the refugees.

  • At least seven U.S. governors who are all Democrats say

  • they`ll allow the refugees in their states.

  • But a majority of U.S. governors, at least 30 Republicans and one Democrat,

  • say they won`t accept additional refugees from Syria.

  • Experts say the final decision rests with the federal government,

  • but the states that don`t agree can slow down the process.

  • In the wake of Paris attacks,

  • there`s now a big split between Democrats and Republicans

  • over what to do with Syrian refugees who President Obama

  • had planned to admit into the United States.

  • SUBTITLE: The Partisan split over Syrian refugees.

  • Republican governors everywhere are raising their hands and saying, whoa,

  • we don`t want these refugees in our states.

  • I am now requesting that the president and the federal government

  • cease sending refugees from Syria to North Carolina.

  • This sets up a big fight on Capitol Hill,

  • where Paul Ryan, the new speaker,

  • just weeks into his tenure,

  • is under a lot of pressure from Republicans

  • on the Hill and on the presidential campaign trail.

  • Congress I think should defund all the programs

  • that allow these people to be brought here immediately, today.

  • This raises big questions ahead of the December government funding showdown.

  • Funding for the government runs out on December 11th.

  • And so, this sets up the question of whether Republicans

  • if they do try to do this will run into a veto from President Obama

  • and what President Obama would do next.

  • It is our moral obligation as fellow human beings to help

  • people who are in such vulnerable situations.

  • Our producers pick each day`s "Roll Call" schools from one place,

  • the transcript page at CNNStudentNews.com.

  • We found Lake Stevens High School there.

  • The Vikings are sailing in from Lake Stevens.

  • Woodland Middle School is also online.

  • The Wildcats of Euharlee, Georgia, are watching this Wednesday.

  • And in the northern European nation of Denmark,

  • thank you to Copenhagen International School for watching from the Danish capital.

  • Auto-Tune, a computer software that corrects a singer`s pitch,

  • doesn`t strike the right note with everyone.

  • But ever since it helps Cher score a hit with a strong "Believe" in 1998,

  • it`s become a widely used and widely controversial component of modern music.

  • You might be surprised at who invented and the fact that his background

  • doesn`t have much to do with pop.

  • Dr. Andy Hildebrand isn`t your average engineer.

  • He dreams in equations and algorithms.

  • Twenty-five years ago while working for Exxon,

  • he developed an approach that transformed oil exploration in the United States.

  • What they would do in the oil industry, it was --

  • they would detonate an explosion either on land or in the sea

  • and then they have a long array of detectors

  • that would listen to the reverberations from underground.

  • GLASS: Hildebrand`s algorithm converted these complex signals

  • into a simple computer readout,

  • telling the oil companies where exactly to drill.

  • When I retired from the oil industry, I started doing some computing for music.

  • The breakthrough came in 1997 - this series of symbols,

  • the secret to a perfect singing voice. Auto-Tune was born.

  • Auto-Tune is now an integral part of an industry

  • that was worth some $15 billion in 2014.

  • The claim that it can make anyone sing in tune was one

  • that needed to be tested. And who better than a tone deaf correspondent?

  • The camp town ladies sing this song, doo-dah, doo- dah.

  • With every warbled note, Auto-Tune set to work

  • programmed with the right pitch, it pulled and pushed each note,

  • modulating in real time, making me sound -- well -- in tune.

  • Hildebrand`s hoping to use the same software to help

  • doctors monitor our health, making sure our hearts don`t skip a bit.

  • There are a lot of unusual vending machines.

  • Some dispense cupcakes or rice. Some do pizza or hotdog sandwiches.

  • This one does cars, as in you drive it home cars.

  • It`s fully automated, it`s coin operated,

  • and before you say that`s a lot of quarters,

  • customers actually buy the car online first

  • and then they head to this five-story glass tower, they got to walk, bike or get a ride.

  • They put in a special coin, and voila, a car is dispensed.

  • Of course, dealers would call this indi-vincible.

  • There`s no way to kick the tires first to test drive first to test drive this kind of self service,

  • or to verify the vehicle has not passed its sell-by date.

  • It`s really for people who are driven by fresh new ideas

  • and don`t mind having to vend (ph) for themselves.
