  • Hi, everyone. I`m Carl Azuz for CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • We are your commercial-free source of current events

  • for middle and high school classrooms.

  • General Beauregard Lee is a famous groundhog here in the South.

  • On Groundhog Day, he predicted an early spring.

  • Failed. After four winter storms in two weeks

  • and states of emergency in Tennessee and Alabama,

  • Southerners are saying never put your trust in the groundhog.

  • The snowfall, a couple inches here, a few more there,

  • might not be much compared to what folks in the Northeast have been through.

  • But in states that are generally not used to it,

  • it`s enough to shut down schools,

  • delay or cancel hundreds of flights and leave grocery stores completely out of milk and bread.

  • There were winter storm warnings in 11 states yesterday,

  • some of them taking no chances

  • with the memory still fresh of ice storms

  • that shut down traffic in Atlanta and the Carolinas last year.

  • A very different natural disaster is drying out part of part of South America.

  • Sao Paolo is the largest city in Brazil.

  • About 20 million people live in and around Sao Paolo

  • and they`re running dangerously low on water.

  • The city has seen its lowest amount of rainfall since 1930.

  • The reservoir that provides its main water source is down to 6 percent of its total capacity.

  • Officials are now warning people they may have to ration water.

  • What could be worse news is that some experts expect this crisis to last for years.

  • It`s a pretty incredible story when it comes to the country

  • that has the largest fresh water supply in the world,

  • 12 percent of the world`s fresh water supply comes right out of here, Brazil.

  • Unfortunately, that water is distributed among the Amazon Basin to the north and unfortunately,

  • as well, is that only 4 percent of Brazil`s population lives along the Amazon Basin.

  • You`ve got to come all the way to the south.

  • That`s where about 21 million people live, in the most densely populated region.

  • Very little water to work with, in fact,

  • some of the driest weather they`ve seen in some 80 years across this region.

  • In 2014, the only months that were even close to average in the rainfall department

  • were the months of March and also the months of November.

  • So this is what we`re dealing with right now, exceptional drought taking place.

  • Some people having to literally have no access to water after 1:00 p.m. every single day.

  • Some reports even saying that doctors having to cut short dialysis for kidney patients

  • because of the lack of water across areas of Sao Paolo in Brazil.

  • You take a look at some of the reservoirs.

  • This particular one houses and provides water for some nine million people in Brazil.

  • Here`s the perspective, as we saw in back in August, 2013, a healthy year.

  • And very quickly, with a lack of rainfall in about a 12 month span,

  • we come back down to reality.

  • And this is what we`re seeing with the exposed banks across some of these areas.

  • Again, go back to August 2013, compare it to August 2014,

  • a dire situation taking place across portions of Brazil.

  • And here is the perspective, an aerial view of what`s happening here.

  • And unfortunately, the bad news is when you take a look at the climatological norms,

  • we are in the wet season.

  • We`ve had some decent rainfall in recent months,

  • but over the next several months, we do head into the dry season,

  • where little to no rainfall is typically expected.

  • So the problems could continue for the long haul.

  • See if you can ID me. Voltaire and Claude Monet. My nickname is City of Light.

  • I`m a famous European city of more than two million people.

  • I`m the birthplace of Yo-Yo Ma,

  • Voltaire and Claude Monet. My nickname is City of Light.

  • I`m Paris, France, located on the banks of the Seine River.

  • Things you`d expect to see rising in the skies about Paris -- the Arch de Triomphe,

  • the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral. Not drones.

  • They`re completely illegal in the French capital.

  • You can`t even fly one with a license.

  • That`s part of the reason why a number of drones

  • appearing overnight over some of Paris` landmarks has some Parisians concerned.

  • The plot certainly thickens.

  • These drones have been flying over not just sites that are recognizable to tourists,

  • but also over some of the most important democratic institutions in all of France and Europe.

  • I want to remind our viewers that on Monday,

  • these five drones were reportedly spotted over the Eiffel Tower,

  • The Bastille, Place de la Concorde,

  • which is a large public square that many tourists will remember.

  • Les Invalides, it`s a museum there in Paris, as well as the U.S. Embassy.

  • And then again on Tuesday night, beginning 11:00 p.m.

  • on until just about 2:00 a.m. Wednesday, authorities say

  • they spotted drones over the Latin Quarter, the French National Assembly,

  • which is similar to the U.S. Congress, Gare de L`Est,

  • which is a large rail station, as well as over two large Paris metro stations.

  • Paris authorities tell us they`ve opened an investigation

  • which is being handled by the Parisian police as well as the French prosecutor`s office.

  • It`s not being handled by the French military.

  • But of course, Paris is a city that is still reeling from those two terrorist attacks

  • await "Charlie Hebdo" and the Jewish supermarket.

  • So this very much has the Parisian people on edge

  • , though drone analysts say that in all likelihood,

  • this is some type of drone enthusiast,

  • or a group of drone enthusiasts, flying these drones over the Parisian skies at night.

  • They say the biggest concern is in all likelihood, the drone could crash.

  • And that`s really what could cause the biggest problem

  • -- into a plane, into a small plane, into the streets, or even into a person.

  • We`re starting in the Tar Heel State this Thursday on the Roll Call.

  • Hello, Community House Middle School.

  • It`s in Charlotte, North Carolina. It`s the home of the Cavaliers.

  • Moving west to The Bluegrass State, that`s Kentucky.

  • It`s where you`ll find the city of Bowling Green and the Purples of Bowling Green Junior High.

  • And up north in The Badger State, or America`s dairy land,

  • it`s the Orioles watching today.

  • They`re in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, at Longfellow Middle School.

  • It was sitting on the shelf of a public library in France,

  • a book probably first sold in 1623 containing collected works of William Shakespeare.

  • Why is that significant?

  • Well, there`s no such thing as an actual Shakespeare manuscript.

  • None has ever been proven to exist.

  • So books like this are some of the most original records we have.

  • Copies of this one are in museums,

  • though one did sell at auction nine years ago for more than $4 million.

  • So it seems this find, now on loan to London`s Globe Theater, is pretty close to priceless.

  • This is one of the most valuable and coveted books in all of English literature,

  • a Shakespearean story that, in this case, does not end in tragedy.

  • Published in 1623, the "First Folio," as it`s called,

  • is the first ever compilation of 36 of the 38 plays written by William Shakespeare.

  • But even this book`s acts are wrought with drama.

  • For two centuries, it was left undisturbed in a library in Saint-Omer in Northern France.

  • Then, late last year, a librarian searching the shelves

  • for an upcoming exhibition dusted off this rare find.

  • It is wonderful to discover yet another copy of the "First Folio."

  • And this is such a surprise, because you think they`ve all been found, there`s nothing more.

  • And I think it -- it`s two things.

  • One, it reminds us there may be more things to find,

  • to discover around the world connected to Shakespeare.

  • Much like Shakespeare`s tortured characters,

  • this book can`t help but show its scars, as well.

  • Thirty pages are missing, including the title page with its iconic portrait of the playwright.

  • That`s what likely led to its mislabeling in the library catalog for all of those years.

  • But now, there are 233 known copies of the "First Folio."

  • The latest carefully wrapped and locked in a box

  • and then taken on the Eurotunnel train to The Globe Theater in London just this week.

  • But for us to have the "Folio" here at the Globe is a great honor.

  • The -- the words on the pages of the "Folio" were spoken on our stage in The Globe Theater.

  • That`s where they began. That`s where they were born.

  • And then two of Shakespeare`s fellow actors said, no,

  • more people must be able to see these -- access these words.

  • We`ll print the plays. Unheard of. It was a shock to publish the plays in one volume.

  • So the "First Folio" was printed seven years after Shakespeare died to make it public.

  • That was the point, to make it public.

  • With no original manuscripts remaining, the "Folio" is considered Shakespeare`s bible.

  • Each copy is different. So scholars scrutinize them for subtle variations

  • to better understand his intentions.

  • "Romeo and Juliet," "The Tempest," "Macbeth," "Hamlet," they`re all in here.

  • And this "Folio" contained handwritten notes, as well,

  • which might just shine a light on how the plays were performed during Shakespeare`s time.

  • Fish stories -- people who land the catch of the day are infamous

  • for exaggerating the size of the fish.

  • This guy doesn`t need to.

  • He`s a professional Italian fisherman who caught this catfish,

  • which is bigger than cats and fish on Italy`s Poe River last week.

  • Don`t worry, after getting the photo, he let it get back to dominating the rest of the river.

  • He says it`s a record and that the 8.7 foot,

  • 280 pound monster took 40 minutes to reel in.

  • That`s a really big deal. He doesn`t need to fish for compliments.

  • The fresh fish story hooked us in one line -- colossal catfish.

  • It`s the kind of thing that catches your eye,

  • doesn`t let go and helps us reel in another fun show. I`m Carl Azuz.

  • Hope you`ll spin another 10 minutes with us tomorrow.
