  • CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR: I`m Carl Azuz. Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • U.S. Congress is backing session and debating the issue of Syria.

  • President Obama has scheduled to make a speech to the American public tonight.

  • Yesterday, Russian officials proposed that Syria hand over control of its chemical weapons to the international community,

  • although U.S. officials said that idea isn`t like that it`ll resolve the issue.

  • How did we get here?

  • It started back in March of 2011.

  • Some Syrians began protesting against their government.

  • They want a change, and they called for President Bashar al-Assad whom you just saw to leave power.

  • Syrian government responded to the protest with force,

  • eventually the protests and the violence erupted into a civil war as rebel forces armed themselves and fought back.

  • The rebels aren`t just one group, some are former members of the Syrian military, some are civilians.

  • And some are connected to the al Qaeda terrorist organization.

  • Since the fighting started, the United Nations estimates that more than 100,000 Syrians have been killed

  • and more than 2 million have left their country to escape the war.

  • A major development in Syria`s civil war happened last month outside Damascus

  • where an alleged chemical weapons attack killed more than 1400 people.

  • These weapons have been banned by international organizations and treaties.

  • The Syrian government and the rebel forces each blame the other for using the chemical weapons,

  • but President Obama says there is no doubt that the Syrian government used the chemical weapons.

  • He wants to launch a military strike against Syria as punishment,

  • but he decided he would ask Congress for approval.

  • That`s the debate that`s happening in Washington right now.

  • Today, we are catching up on Malala Yousafzai.

  • She`s from a part of Pakistan where girls don`t always have access to education.

  • Malala was attacked by the Taliban, Afghanistan`s former rulers after she insisted on going to school and encouraging other girls to go to.

  • Malala got medical treatment in the United Kingdom.

  • She lives there now, and she`s continuing her fight for education rights.

  • Last week, she helped open a new library in England.

  • She gave a speech there saying pens and books are the weapons that defeat terrorism.

  • A few days later, Malala was in the Netherlands.

  • She was there to be honored as the winner of this year`s International Children`s Peace Price.

  • Malala is often associated with girls education rights, but she says that rights should extend to everyone.

  • MALALA YOUSAFZAI, CHILDREN`S PRIZE WINNER: My goal is the education of all children around the world.

  • Whether white or black,

  • whether Muslims or Christians,

  • whether boys or girls.

  • AZUZ: It` not hard to see why many people consider Malala inspirational.

  • CNN is asking teens ages 13 to 18 what specifically has Malala done to inspire you.

  • Students who were 13 and over, if you tell us in the 300 to 500 word essay,

  • you could win a chance to meet Malala Yousafzai

  • and attend her interview with CNN`s Christian Amanpour in New York.

  • For complete rules, check out the link at cnnstudentnews.com.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: See, if you can I.D. me.

  • I`m a country in Northern Europe,

  • I`m on a peninsula between the North and Baltic Seas.

  • I was a setting for Shakespeare`s "Hamlet."

  • My capital city is Copenhagen.

  • I`m Denmark.

  • And I`m home to more than 5.5 million people.

  • AZUZ: Hamlet might have thought there was something rotten in Denmark, but his fellow Danes don`t agree.

  • Despite the cold, the lack of sunshine and winter and that whole Shakespearean tragedy thing,

  • Denmark, not Disneyland, has just been named the happiest place on Earth.

  • Columbia University`s Earth Institute recently ranked more than 150 nations,

  • based on a survey done between 2010 and 2012.

  • It asked folks about their expectations for a long healthy life,

  • the freedom to make life choices, having someone to count on.

  • And it found satisfied smiles stretching straight across Northern Europe.

  • Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden, neighbors, in most cases.

  • Happy neighbors.

  • The report`s top five happiest countries on the planet.

  • And while it said that money can`t buy happiness, that`s factored in, too.

  • It might be no coincidence that three of the top five happiest countries are in the world`s top ten when it comes to wealth.

  • The United States came in at number 17, behind places like Canada, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Mexico.

  • But it was well ahead of the bottom five countries, rankings 152 through 156.

  • The African nations of Rwanda, Burundi, Central African Republic, Benin and Togo.

  • That`s where life expectancies are lower, incomes are lower

  • and people are generally less satisfied with their lives, according to the survey.

  • Ladies and gentlemen, from the flight deck, this is your captain speaking.

  • If you`ve ever flown in a plane, you might have heard that.

  • What if the pilot wasn`t on the flight deck?

  • What if the pilot wasn`t even on the plane?

  • Ayesha Durgahee found out, when she filed this report.

  • AYESHA DURGAHEE, PRESTON, UK: The final checks before takeoff.

  • A routine walk around the aircraft by the captain.

  • But this is no ordinary flight.

  • This BAE 146 is equipped with technology to allow it to be controlled from the ground.

  • The BAE systems test plane here in Preston has so far racked up 480 flight hours,

  • and now I`m going to be that first passenger.

  • The test engineer start the handover briefing to the ground pilot, Bob Freiser.

  • We`re successfully going to 7,000 feet and now the pilot that in front of the plane about to hand over to the ground control station.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Ready to take control.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And proceed.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I have control.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Do you want control?

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Request routine direct (inaudible).

  • DUNCAN CASEY, TEST ENGINEER, BAE SYSTEMS: (INAUDIBLE) now is responsible for navigating the aircraft around this pre-planned route,

  • and what you can hear with the moment is the discussion with (inaudible) that`s exactly the same discussion the pilots would be having

  • if they were in charge of the steering of the aircraft.

  • DURGAHEE: These test flights are part of Astria (ph),

  • BAE Systems $94 million program.

  • With increased automation in the cockpit, planes could fly longer and further.

  • LAMBERT DOPPING-HEPENSTAL, DIRECTOR, ASTRAEA PROGRAMME: I think it`s probably the next major step in the aviation,

  • it`s a bit like introducing the jet engine.

  • It`s not going to replace manned aircraft, I don`t think as passengers we will do that.

  • Because you want somebody in -- responsible for the aircraft on board the aircraft in any case.

  • DURGAHEE: The technology to bring the flight deck onto the ground could first be adopted for cargo flights

  • and for aircraft during hazardous emergencies such as wildfires.

  • The Aerospace Knowledge Transfer Network estimates that the global market for unmanned aircraft based services could generate $400 billion a year.

  • AZUZ: CNN STUDENT NEWS Roll Call.

  • Wait to get your school mentioned on our show.

  • Treat people the way you want to be treated.

  • It`s simple, but straightforward, and it works.

  • And we asked some high school junior and seniors about the best advice they ever got.

  • They told us for today`s viewfinder segment.

  • ROMA PARIKH, HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR: It`s a little cliche, but the whole thing about when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

  • MYKEL SKINNER, HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR: Don`t let anyone be the boss of you!

  • You know, you`re the boss of yourself!

  • You can make your own decisions, don`t let anyone make it for you for sure.

  • MARILYN PRIMOVIC, HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR: Is to never give up and to just follow the path that God set up for me and to just pursue it.

  • ROSHIN KOOPLICAT, HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR: Be yourself, if you try to copy, there is -- it`s not going to work out.

  • NICK MUSEY, HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR: Probably, to never burn any bridges.

  • Because, you know, you never know who you`re going to meet, when you`re going to meet them again.

  • AMAYA CARR, HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR: It sounds cliche, but find yourself and follow your dreams.

  • It took me a while to realize what I really wanted to do and who am I really was,

  • and once I figured that out, life became easier.

  • GARLAND JONES, HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR: Relax.

  • Best advise will be relax.

  • And enjoy the ride.

  • AZUZ: Some people are secretive in their attempt to world record.

  • Others are happy to show you how the sausage gets made.

  • Especially when the sausage is the world record.

  • This is all linked to a grocery store in Minnesota that has a reputation for bratwurst,

  • when it`s set out to make the world`s biggest and needed to meat expectations, and it did.

  • At 152 feet long.

  • You never saw such a thing before.

  • They`d beat their old world record by 100 feet just in case.

  • I mean for better or worst, they really brought it.

  • You could say it was the best of times because it was the worst of times, and now we`re going to be out of time.

  • We`ll meet you again tomorrow for more CNN STUDENT NEWS. Bye now.

  • END
