  • Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS on Cinco de Mayo, 2014. We`ll have a report on that in a couple of minutes. I`m Carl Azuz.

  • First up today, U.S. jobs numbers. The latest report is out from the federal government. It has figures for the month of April.

  • On one hand, things seem pretty good, 288,000 jobs added in the U.S. April was the best month for job growth in two years.

  • And the unemployment rate, it was 6.7 percent in March, it dropped to 6.3 percent in April.

  • One analyst says with warmer weather we are seeing the economy hit up.

  • On the other hand, things seem not so good.

  • One reason the unemployment rate fell is because fewer people entered the workforce.

  • It`s possible more young workers are sitting on the sidelines. And another analyst says that`s not a good sign.

  • Class of 2014, you`re looking at a tough job market.

  • It`s been five years since the recession ended, but the effects are still being felt, especially among young people.

  • A new report by the economic policy institute, a liberal think tank, shows one in five high school graduates and one in ten college grads aren`t working and they are not in school either.

  • Even those simply approaching graduation don`t face great prospects.

  • The institute says those young people will join the sizeable backlog of unemployed college graduates from the last five graduating classes,

  • and then an extremely difficult job market.

  • And once they actually get hired, the problems aren`t over either.

  • Recent high school grads making average of $9.82 cents an hour, 11 percent lower than what they would have in 2000.

  • College grads are making more, about $16.99 an hour, but again, that`s quite a bit lower than their predecessors.

  • Plus, employees overall aren`t being as generous with benefits as they once were.

  • The report warns that it is possible to overcome these setbacks, but that it could take ten to 15 years.

  • The nation of Ukraine is on shaky ground.

  • Divisions are deepening, violence is breaking out between those who want a closer alliance with Russia and those who want a closer alliance with Western Europe.

  • What`s been happening in the Ukrainian city of Odessa reflects the tension of the whole country.

  • Yesterday, protesters who support Russia stormed a police headquarters.

  • They demanded the release of dozens of people who`d been arrested two days earlier for allegedly participating in violent protests.

  • 67 detainees were released Sunday without a shot being fired or a life lost.

  • But that wasn`t the case Friday when 46 people died in a riot that ended in a building fire.

  • The emotions are powerful here. Fury, confusion, grief.

  • These are the senses of people who were trying to understand how,

  • why Ukraine`s ethnic and political divide suddenly flared here in Odessa, taking so many lives.

  • It started on the streets, pro- Russian and pro-Ukrainian forces throwing what they could at each other.

  • Guns were used, too.

  • The pro- Russians were outnumbered.

  • And they retreated into the Trade Union Building.

  • Witnesses say, there were hundreds inside when it caught fire.

  • It`s unclear how the fire started, whether it`s because of Molotov cocktails thrown at the building or whether it`s because they were mishandled by those seeking shelter here,

  • but the fire took hold quickly and in the moments that followed, dozens were killed, most overcome by smoke.

  • But some trying desperately to escape.

  • Odessa is a city with rich historic and cultural links to Russia.

  • There have been disturbances here in recent weeks, but nothing like this.

  • This isn`t like Ukraine`s East, these people are a long way from the Russian border,

  • but the flames of political and cultural hatred now burn strongly here as well.

  • Phil Black, CNN, Odessa, southern Ukraine.

  • We are heading back to North America to report on a holiday associated with Mexico.

  • The nation declared its independence from Spain in 1810, in September.

  • Spain recognized that independence in 1821, in September.

  • So, if someone comes up to you today and says, happy Cinco de Mayo, it`s Mexican Independence Day, you can say nah-ah, here are a few useful facts you can point out.

  • Attention and for the last time, please, help me spread out the word:

  • Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico`s Independence Day, OK? It`s not.

  • Cinco de Mayo we celebrate le Batailla de Puebla (ph), the battle of Puebla.

  • Puebla is a state, you know, 85 miles away from Mexico City.

  • It`s just basically the victory of the Mexican Army against a French army.

  • Napoleon`s army. But it is important because the French army had not been defeated in 15 years, and they came over to Mexico to collect a debt.

  • So that`s why we celebrate it.

  • No, no, Cinco de Mayo is not as big as it is in America, so thank you very much for celebrating Cinco de Mayo for us.

  • I`ve been here 14 years, I have never seen such a big celebration on Cinco de Mayo, (INAUDIBLE) on the street, we don`t celebrate it that much.

  • Don`t say happy Cinco de Mayo in Mexico, because they`ll know you are not from Mexico.

  • We don`t say that. May be we say have a nice day. But we don`t say happy Cinco de Mayo at all.

  • So, please don`t confuse our Independence Day.

  • Mexico`s Independence Day is on the 16th of September.

  • But we start celebrating it on the 15, so don`t confuse it and I`ll tell you in September why.

  • Carl Azuz? Present. It`s time for the CNN STUDENT NEWS Roll Call.

  • First, to the Empire State. We are happy to have the Patriots watching at the Martin Luther King Jr. School.

  • They are in (INAUDIBLE), New York.

  • Go Hawks! That`s the mascot - to go hawks.

  • They are checking us out at Waverly-Shell Rock High School. That`s in Waverly, Iowa.

  • And in the Grand Canyon state of Arizona, there are mountain lions stalking us.

  • We found them at Mountain View School in Woodall (ph).

  • It`s teacher appreciation week. If you`re on Facebook, we are at Facebook.com/cnnstudentnews looking for your thoughts about your favorite teacher.

  • For Sara, that`s Ms. Wilcox, she`s Sara`s history teacher who`s good at teaching the subject and making it fun.

  • Michael mentioned Ms. Silliger at Louisville High School, an A.P. world history teacher who shares her experiences in traveling and serving in the Peace Corps.

  • Nicholas praised Mr. McGrew (ph) for being there for him and his classmates and helping solve problems that came up.

  • Dale said if it weren`t for Ms. Latshott, Dear Valley High School, he wouldn`t know where he`d be today.

  • And Theo - said her drama teacher, Mr. Joseph, inspired her to follow her dreams.

  • And our next story is an appreciation of another sort of teacher.

  • His name is Ned Norton. He opened a specially designed gym.

  • It allows people to exercise and build strength like any other gym, but it`s not for profit.

  • And his clients have spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome.

  • The strength that Norton`s helping them find is why he`s a CNN hero.

  • When I`m running, I feel limitless. Being in motion makes me feel free.

  • When you are really pushing yourself, that`s when you really feel alive.

  • But there are millions of people around the world that are facing severe physical limitations.

  • They can`t be independent, they can`t live their lives.

  • I spent years training Olympic athletes, football players, body builders.

  • One day, a young guy, Nuli (ph), spinal cord injured, came to the gym asking for help.

  • At first, I didn`t know what to do, but we just worked together. He made tremendous progress.

  • Take a breath! Reach up! Reach up! Bring it back!

  • Before you knew it, my phone ran off the hook. With people asking for help . Bring it up.

  • So, I opened a gym designed to fit their needs.

  • Now you go to work?

  • For the past 25 years, I`ve provided strength and conditioning training for people with disabilities .

  • Stretch up! Nice job.

  • People come to me when they are at their lowest. Up! Up! Up! Hold it.

  • I feel much better now!

  • You come to the gym and all of a sudden, you have a natural support network.

  • In 1971, I broke my back and I`ve been in the wheelchair ever since.

  • That`s it, Tom.

  • Thanks to Ned, I keep my upper body`s strength at a maximum. I`ve been able to live a full life.

  • I never worry about what they can`t do. I worry about what they can do.

  • I can go right now. Yes, you can. Good job.

  • I did up the ten!

  • I`m building them up, building them stronger, so they can - and live life like they are supposed to.

  • At a softball game, you might expect to hear things like keep your eye on the ball, make sure no one steals.

  • In this game, you`ve got to keep your eye on the glove, because someone (INAUDIBLE) nose, and he`s not likely to give them bark.

  • This dog is a maniac. A kleptomaniac.

  • Running some serious interference from the in-field to the outfield.

  • No one desires that he`s way off base before his owner finally calls him out.

  • Umpires will be chewing over ways to prevent that.

  • After all, the clubs are off. You can say that pit bull against ball.

  • It was certainly a foul play, though he makes some great grabs before going home.

  • I`m Carl Azuz. We are out of time, and that`s a doggone shame.

  • See you tomorrow on CNN STUDENT NEWS.
