  • Know what`s awesome? Fridays are awesome.

  • I`m Carl Azuz and I`m glad to bring you Friday`s edition of CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • First up, as another winter storm iced its way from Texas to Massachusetts,

  • Kentucky`s governor declared a state of emergency.

  • It allows the National Guard to help and lets state officials close roads.

  • Some parts of Kentucky got more than 20 inches of snow in 15 hours,

  • stranded hundreds of cars. Road crews couldn`t keep up.

  • And Boston, Massachusetts is less than two inches of snow away

  • from its snowiest winter ever recorded.

  • Winter weather is also being blamed for this --

  • Delta Flight 1086 skidded off the runway at

  • New York`s LaGuardia Airport yesterday morning.

  • The plane with 132 people aboard finally stopped at a small embankment

  • just feet away from the icy East River.

  • Twenty-four people were hurt. No one was killed.

  • One passenger thanked the crew, first responders and God that it wasn`t worse.

  • LaGuardia Airport shut down most of the rest of the day.

  • Cnnstudentnews.com is your one stop shop for all things CNN STUDENT NEWS,

  • including our Roll Call request page.

  • We`ve called on a school named Washington four times this school year,

  • but never the middle school from Washington, Illinois.

  • Great to have The Panthers watching today.

  • We visited Pennsylvania five times this school year.

  • This time, we`re stopping by Canton to shout out The Warriors

  • of Canton Junior/Senior High School.

  • And we`re rounding out today`s Roll Call in Georgia,

  • but not the U.S. state, the republic.

  • In the capital, welcome to The Panthers of QSI International School in Tbilisi.

  • To Nigeria, the largest economy and wealthiest country in Africa, population, 177 million.

  • But an estimated 70 percent of its people still live in poverty.

  • and the nation is struggling against the Boko Haram terrorist group.

  • It`s gotten so violent in Northeastern Nigeria,

  • that it`s having an impact on border countries.

  • that it`s having an impact on border countries.

  • The Islamic militants have been attacking parts of Cameroon.

  • Its government is having to spend money to fight them and it`s losing money from tourism.

  • Boko Haram and the ISIS terror groups have something in common.

  • Boko Haram is an Islamic militant group operating out of Nigeria.

  • Their name means Western Education is Forbidden.

  • Boko Haram`s first known attack on multiple police stations happened in 2003.

  • But they became better known around the world for the kidnapping

  • of over 200 schoolgirls in April, 2014.

  • What are we asking?

  • They want to create an Islamic state in Nigeria,

  • a country that split into a majority Muslim north and a mostly Christian south.

  • They now control much of Northeastern Nigeria.

  • That`s an area about the size of Belgium and almost as big as the U.S. state of Maryland. We`re talking 30,000 square kilometers. According to Amnesty International, Boko Haram carried out one of their dead

  • We`re talking 30,000 square kilometers.

  • According to Amnesty International,

  • Boko Haram carried out one of their deadliest attacks just this January.

  • Some fear up to 2,000 people were massacred in Baga.

  • And Amnesty released satellite images highlighting the shocking destruction.

  • The situation is so bad, Nigeria postponed its presidential election over security concerns.

  • Free, fair, credible and peaceful elections will (INAUDIBLE).

  • Nigeria has now formed a military coalition with neighboring countries

  • and they`re carrying out air strikes against the militants.

  • It`s early days yet, but there has been some success.

  • Beating the terror group, however, could be an uphill battle,

  • because of low morale and corruption allegations within the Nigerian Army.

  • Its soldiers are under resourced, poorly paid and often just outgunned by Boko Haram.

  • Time for the Shoutout.

  • What is the term for the civil time that`s currently being observed throughout the U.S.?

  • If you think you know it, shout it out.

  • Is it, A, Greenwich Mean Time, B, Atlantic Standard Time,

  • C, Standard Time, or D, Daylight-Saving Time?

  • You`ve got three seconds.Go.

  • Even though most of the U.S. spends most of the year in Daylight-Saving Time,

  • it`s currently on Standard Time.That`s your answer and that`s your Shoutout.

  • Of course, that all changes on Sunday, or Saturday night,

  • when Americans in almost every state spring forward,

  • setting the clocks ahead one hour.

  • That`s when we`ll be on Daylight-Saving Time.

  • It`s the law in the U.S. thanks to the 1966 Uniform Time Act.

  • But it`s not a law that all states have to follow

  • and parts of Arizona and all of Hawaii don`t observe Daylight-Saving Time,

  • nor do several U.S. territories.The idea goes back to well before the 1960s.

  • Jim Boulden reports on its roots in Britain and the First World War.

  • This was a war where every hour counted,

  • on the battlefield and on the home front.

  • By 1916, an old idea had resurfaced,

  • one that was born in Britain near the home of time,

  • the Royal Observatory at Greenwich.

  • With the publication of a pamphlet called "The Wasted Daylight."

  • And this was composed by a very entrepreneurial builder called William Willett.

  • He lived in Chislehurst, which is about 15 kilometers south of Greenwich.

  • And Willett was a keen horse ride in the local woods.

  • And it was on one of these rides that he noticed that all the blinds

  • in the local houses were all down. Everyone seemed to be in bed.

  • And as a very industrious and productive man,

  • he was appalled at this wasted time.

  • Everyone appreciates the long, light evenings.

  • Everyone laments their shrinkage as the days grow shorter.

  • And nearly everyone has given utterance to a regret that the clear,

  • bright light of early mornings during spring and summer months is so seldom seen or used.

  • Now, if some of the hours of wasted sunlight could be withdrawn from the beginning

  • and added to the end of the day, how many advantages would be gained by all?

  • Willett died before he saw his idea put into action to save coal for the war effort.

  • But it was adopted at first by the Germans, not the British.

  • Postcards warned the population about the shift

  • and why they owed it to their country not to forget.

  • The British followed a few weeks later

  • and didn`t miss a chance for a dig at the Germans.

  • America came on board in 1918.

  • As DST spread around the world, countries adopted it,

  • dumped it or never tried it. Still, the daylight debate rages every year.

  • The arguments exist whether it helps or harms our health and the Economy.

  • In terms of the health debate, that still goes on, too.

  • People suggest that with the lighter evenings, people go out for a jog.

  • Certainly here in Greenwich Park, it`s very popular.

  • And then also people claim that it has tourist benefits.

  • People stay out later, go for a meal, go outside.

  • So it can have a real economic benefit.

  • While the wartime wisdom of saving energy may no longer apply,

  • for many of us, the long summer evenings still endure,

  • Of a war where so much was lost to give us these freedoms. Jim Boulden, CNN London.

  • So yesterday, we showed you a cat island in Japan.

  • Today, we`re headed to South Africa for a look at some bigger cats -- and we`re not lying.

  • These cats are -- a family was driving through a safari park

  • getting a really close look at lions when one walked up and opened the door with its teeth.

  • Now is the time to go.

  • Someone on the video says the door should have been locked,

  • but who would have expected the animal to open it?

  • Especially when the others look like they`re just lying around.

  • Now, people tend to lionize these animals for their catjesty.

  • They`re truly a claws celebre. But when one approarches that closely,

  • you cat to be kitten out of their fast.

  • I`m Carl Azuz for CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • Have a pawsome weekend.

Know what`s awesome? Fridays are awesome.
