  • Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz.

  • It`s a country of nearly 45 million people, one of the largest nations in Europe.

  • And right now it`s in a struggle with itself.

  • We`re talking about Ukraine. Kind of a crossroads, Western Europe to one side, and Russia to the other.

  • The tension happening in Ukraine right now is over which side the country should be closer to.

  • Ukraine`s president and many of its people prefer to be aligned with Russia.

  • Ukrainians who want to move toward Western Europe have been protesting.

  • They`ve taken over parts of the capital city, Kiev, and put up barricades around their gathering spots.

  • That is until late Tuesday night.

  • It`s 2:00 in the morning, and it would appear that the riot police have decided that this is the time to go into the square in full force.

  • I don`t know how we`re going to get in, this is the only way down, and there are police three deep (ph), but we`ll try.

  • How are they going to push through these barricades, which have been up there for a long time.

  • You can see the protesters manning the barricades and there are hundreds of riot police here,

  • but no easy access for them through into this square, which is exactly the way the protesters want it.

  • So, the police have moved on here with chainsaws to try and saw through these barricades and also use brute force to pull them back.

  • And it does look as though in that corner it is giving way.

  • Now, you have the sea of helmets, the red helmets of the protesters against the black helmets of the riot police, head on head.

  • And we`ll see what happens next.

  • On Wednesday, protesters in Kiev started rebuilding those barricades that were torn down overnight.

  • Catching up on a few other stories now, starting with Merrill Newman.

  • The 85-yar old American is home after being held in North Korea for weeks.

  • That country`s government released a video, in which Newman read a supposed apology for things he did during the Korean War.

  • Newman says that apology was given under duress.

  • "Anyone who has read the text of it knows that the words were not mine, and were not delivered voluntarily."

  • Next up, a lawsuit involving human rights for non-humans.

  • The Non- Human Rights Project was suing to get chimpanzees some of the same rights as the legal person.

  • Their goal was to get some animals move from private owners to sanctuaries.

  • Three courts of New York have rejected the lawsuits. The Non-Human Rights Project says it will appeal those decisions.

  • And finally, a follow up about outbreak of meningitis, which involves inflammation around the brain and spinal cord.

  • After several cases of the disease at Princeton University, school officials decided to offer students there vaccine.

  • This particular vaccine is approved in other countries, but not in the United States.

  • Princeton says it will cover the cost of the vaccine and only offer it to students and certain members of the university community.

  • It`s time for the "Shoutout."

  • What did Queen Elizabeth II, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mark Zuckerberg have in common?

  • If you think you know it then shout it out. Have they all been Nobel Prize winners?

  • "Time`s" Person of the Year? Awarded the Medal of Freedom? Or Harvard Graduates? You`ve got three seconds, go!

  • The Queen, MLK and Zuckerberg have all been "Time`s" Person of the Year.

  • That`s your answer and that`s your shoutout.

  • When picking a person of the year, the editors of "Time" magazine consider who affected the news and people`s lives the most?

  • Good or bad?

  • And who embodied what was most important about the year.

  • "Time`s" pick for 2013, Pope Francis. He was elected to lead the Roman Catholic Church in March of this year.

  • One of "Time" magazine`s editors says that since he became pope, Francis has changed he church`s image and its substance, focusing on service and helping the poor.

  • Some people thought "Time`s" Person of the Year should have been the runner up (ph) Edward Snowden.

  • The former U.S. National Security Agency contractor leaked information about government surveillance programs.

  • People pushing for Snowden to be person of the year say he had a bigger impact on the world than the new pope.

  • This next story is kind of about technology, it`s kind of about the environment, it`s kind of about business.

  • I didn`t do anything.

  • But it`s mostly about perceptions, and that old advice not to judge a book by its cover.

  • Think about the aps that people use on smartphones.

  • Now, try to picture what the people who design those aps look like, and now watch.

  • This is Patrick, the kind of driven computer wiz who starts companies in college.

  • He came to New York hoping to meet someone in tech that would buy his ideas and change his life.

  • He just didn`t know it would be the homeless guy on the walk to work.

  • He just has something about him. And the first time I remember thinking of him ahead like - you know, who is this guy?

  • This is Leo.

  • As a kid, he was obsessed with science, astronomy, chemistry, physics,

  • but then he fell in with the wrong crowd, became a father too soon.

  • And two years ago first lost his job, and then his home.

  • What did you think he wanted?

  • You got the wrong guy.

  • No, he just said, hey, I`m just - it may sounds strange, but I`ll put you an offer.

  • I`ll either give you $100 and you spend it however you want to or I (inaudible) with this brand new laptop and teach you how to code.

  • And instantly, I just said, in my mind, number two.

  • He would write code for hours, for days, on the banks of the Hudson or in the corner nook in Patrick`s office.

  • At night, Patrick would go home, and Leo would go back outside.

  • Shelters just aren`t his thing. Which all seemed fine, until winter blew in.

  • How do you stay warm on those really bitter nights?

  • I can go to train station or bungalow (ph) like tons of blankets.

  • It`s getting really cold, and I keep telling this, and he, you know, he`s like, I`m good, man, let`s keep going.

  • See, Patrick just wanted to get him employed and housed ASAP, but Leo had other priorities.

  • What is it you wanted to do with this information he was teaching you?

  • Make the world a better place.

  • See, he is a passionate environmentalist. His heroes are scientists who brave the rugged outdoors.

  • This is what life is supposed to be like, you know.

  • Going outside?

  • Yeah. I want to be around plants and I want to breathe as much oxygen as possible.

  • Since he`s really worried about a changing climate, he decided to use his new skills to create a carbon cutting ride sharing app, called Trees for Cars.

  • These would be riders in the same area who want to ride with you.

  • OK. If you make money off of this app.

  • Right.

  • Are you going to go get an apartment? What are you going to do?

  • Oh, yes, of course! Trump (inaudible) Hotel.

  • Central Florida, western Pennsylvania, southern Indiana.

  • That`s where we are heading for today`s Roll Call.

  • In Florida, we are checking in with the Hawks from Lake Minneola High School.

  • From there it`s up to Pennsylvania and the Warren Area High School Dragons.

  • And finally, we`ll make our way over to Clarksville, Indiana, where the Providence Pioneers close out today`s roll call journey.

  • Going to the gym is always a little easier when you`ve got a workout buddy.

  • And who better than men`s best friend?

  • In fact, this gym is designed more for the pooches than their personable pals.

  • The owner says it`s designed for dogs to relax and have fun, apparently get a serious workout, too.

  • There are programs for athletic dogs, for older dogs.

  • Treadmills, waterobics. Presumably, it`s open to groups who want to lose some weight because after all, gym is a perfect place to deal with dog pounds.

  • Of course, there`s only one way to describe how these pounds come off: shedding.

  • It`s a weighty subject, but we still like to have a little pun in every show.

  • We`ll work out some more and meet you bark here tomorrow to close at the week.
