  • It`s Friday the 13th and still awesome.

  • I`m Carl Azuz with CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • In the eastern Missouri city of Ferguson,

  • police say two officers guarding a police station

  • were ambushed and shot on Tuesday.

  • They both survived,

  • but this is just the latest round of violence in a tense suburb in America.

  • It started last August, when a white police officer named Darren Wilson shot

  • and killed an unarmed 18-year-old named Michael Brown.

  • Large protests followed, with demonstrators saying racism

  • factored into the shooting and the investigation.

  • Some protests were violent.

  • A grand jury later cleared Officer Wilson of any wrongdoing.

  • That led to another wave of protests.

  • Parts of the city were damaged or burned.

  • The U.S. Justice Department also investigated Brown`s shooting.

  • It said Officer Wilson did not break federal civil rights law

  • in a way that could be prosecuted. It didn`t charge him.

  • But it did release a report

  • that said it found regular racial discrimination in Ferguson,

  • both by police and the city`s court system.

  • Earlier this week, Ferguson`s police chief resigned.

  • The shooting of the two officers happened at the end of a protest.

  • Afterward, everyone from the police to Michael Brown`s parents

  • to U.S. government officials spoke out against the shooting.

  • Authorities launched a manhunt for the attackers.

  • Israel is gearing up for national elections.

  • They`re set to take place next Tuesday.

  • The country is a parliamentary democracy.

  • Voters choose members of parliament.

  • The parliament then selects the prime minister, who leads the country.

  • Israel is a close U.S. ally in the Middle East,

  • so leaders around the world are keeping track of this upcoming vote.

  • Less than a week before the election,

  • Benjamin Netanyahu is on the ropes.

  • The latest polls show the prime minister running

  • behind a little known mild-mannered politician.

  • Now, the prospect of a major upset at the hands of Isaac Herzog,

  • known as Bougie.

  • There`s fatigue.

  • There`s a lot of disappointment by Benjamin --

  • from Benjamin Netanyahu. I think his era is over.

  • Focused more on his current job,

  • Netanyahu has done little grand-handing,

  • but has been quick to blame, today pointing to a, quote,

  • "worldwide effort to unseat him."

  • Campaign officials say money from around the world,

  • much of it from the U.S., is funding a grassroots get out the vote drive,

  • called V15 with one goal -- get rid of Bebe.

  • After six years, Netanyahu`s relentless focus on security

  • seems to be falling flat among many Israelis,

  • who want a leader to not only keep them safe,

  • but deal with rising food and housing prices,

  • health care and welfare reform.

  • And the increasing inequalities within the Israeli economy,

  • the emergence and the widening of the gulf

  • between the haves and the have-nots.

  • There, he`s vulnerable in these elections.

  • Tens of thousands of people filled Rabin Square in Tel Aviv

  • this weekend to drive home that message at an anti-Netanyahu rally.

  • In his final push before election day,

  • the prime minister has doubled down on his security platform,

  • with a major speech to the U.S. Congress

  • on the threat Israel faces from Iran...

  • I feel a profound obligation to speak to you

  • about an issue that could well threaten the survival

  • of my country and the future of my people.

  • -- and hedging on his commitment to a peace

  • deal with the Palestinians leading to a two-state solution.

  • Herzog says Netanyahu has an empty brand,

  • warning about growing tensions with the U.S.,

  • Israel`s closest ally, under his leadership.

  • I think that he failed. And I`m trying to call his bluff on it.

  • But the Netanyahu campaign thinks they have the winning hand,

  • ,with the Iranian nuclear threat and Islamic extremism

  • engulfing the Middle East, aides say, at the end of the day,

  • when voters go to the polls, they really realize

  • they feel safer with the prime minister.

  • And they hope that is their full house.

  • Elise Labott, CNN, Jerusalem.

  • From Southeast Asia to Northeast America,

  • it`s time for the CNN STUDENT NEWS Roll Call.

  • We`ll start in Ho Chi Minh City.

  • It`s in Southern Vietnam

  • and it`s where The Schools of North America are watching.

  • Stateside, Olathe is a city in Eastern Kansas.

  • It`s also the home of The Timberwolves,

  • the mascot of Mission Trail Middle School.

  • And Boonton is located in Northern New Jersey.

  • Great to see our viewers at Sage Day High School.

  • It`s the home of The Arctic Fox.

  • It was a major accomplishment for the European Space Agency.

  • Last November, after 10 years of traveling,

  • an ESA vehicle landed on a comet.

  • The vehicle is named Philea and it was the first time ever

  • that something built by humans made a soft landing on a comet.

  • But it didn`t quite go as planned.

  • Philea was supposed to use harpoons

  • and screws to secure itself in place. That didn`t happen.

  • Scientists believe Philea bounced and wound up in a shadow.

  • Because it`s solar-powered, that`s a problem.

  • Its batteries soon ran out, putting the mission on hold.

  • But there`s a ray of hope for the $233 million lander.

  • Who could forget this scene,

  • scientists geeking out over a spectacular landing.

  • But then it bounced and now it`s dark.

  • We have to be a bit patient right now.

  • With a dead battery and no 310 million mile long jumper cables available,

  • scientists at Germany`s aerospace center have some time on their hands.

  • Until the lander gets enough sunlight,

  • the comet is approaching the sun,

  • so that we can reactivate it.

  • While they wait for Philea`s ticker to tick again,

  • scientists are paying great attention to

  • what the lander has already sniffed up.

  • Comet 67P, as it`s known,

  • dates back to the early days of the solar system.

  • All comets are believed to contain an abundance of organic matter,

  • which Philea has just begun to crack.

  • It`s already found a carbon element in those

  • molecules that is the basis of life.

  • Comet 67P and Philea are getting closer to the sun.

  • And scientists are hoping its rays will rekindle a dead battery

  • and give new life to this remarkable project.

  • Fighting hunger, reuniting soldiers with the dogs they left behind,

  • helping heal wounded troops --

  • these are some of the achievements of CNN Heroes,

  • folks who took a step to help others and wound up changing lives.

  • It doesn`t always take money or trips across oceans, though.

  • Sometimes, it just takes a book.

  • And that pretty much covers the subject of today`s Character Study.

  • I`ve always loved to read. It kind of takes you to a different place.

  • My mom told me when I was eight that some kids don`t have books.

  • And that shocked me because everybody should have the option to read.

  • So I started by just doing a small book drive

  • and then told my parents that I wanted to collect

  • and distribute one million books to kids in need by the time I turn 18.

  • So welcome to the Reading Warehouse.

  • I was 13 when I reached my goal.

  • We`ve given books to about 16 countries and 40 states.

  • Meeting the teachers, it`s amazing,

  • because I hear all about the kids they serve.

  • Thank you, sweetie. Thank you for your good work.

  • It`s so much fun to see how reading is impacting the community.

  • Good afternoon, sixth grade.

  • Good afternoon.

  • We have about 1,280 students,

  • a large homeless and highly mobile population.

  • They`re in great need.

  • When Maria Keller came to my school, I was so excited.

  • And she just gave us books for free and it was amazing.

  • Literacy is so important in education.

  • I want kids to have a better life.

  • I know that reading can do that.

  • Before we go, my producer had me at Agility Pig.

  • Now, maybe she`s not as fast as your average Border collie,

  • but her owner says she`s incredibly smart,

  • the smartest dog she`s ever trained.

  • And since the woman who runs the class doesn`t discriminate,

  • the pig is encouraged to learn the ins and outs of agility.

  • Her motivation is food.

  • While dogs eventually live for the acclaim of their owners,

  • the pig just wants to pig out.

  • And she doesn`t exactly hoof it when she hoofs it.

  • That`s snout what she`s about.

  • But if you could pair her pro-pigsity for learning with the speed of when pigs fly,

  • it would be a porcine for dog owners.

  • They`d be hog-tied while you`d be bacon records.

  • I`m Carl Azuz, hamming it up for CNN STUDENT NEWS.

It`s Friday the 13th and still awesome.
