Australia to America,

we're traveling the globe to
get you up to speed on news.

I'm Carl Azuz.
This is CNN 10.
We're happy to
have you watching.

While parts of the United
States were shivering

under record cold
temperatures last week,

Australia, both of its
territories, and all six

of its states, were sweltering
under a record heat wave.

And in the northeastern
state of Queensland,

days of intense rainfall
have caused the kind

of flooding that
officials say happens

only once every 100 years.
Townsville is a city on
Australia's northeast coast.

More than 190,000
people live here.

Its city council says it gets
more than 300 days of sunshine

every year.
But the massive downpours that
have hit Townsville recently

have put a major
strain on a nearby dam.

On Sunday night, the Ross
River Dam was at about 250%

of its capacity,
and its floodgates

had to be opened to prevent
the structure from collapsing.

Australian officials
warned people in Townsville

that historic flooding
would happen as a result.

And some residents who
reportedly thought they'd be OK

have had to climb to
their roofs for safety.

And it's not just the flood
waters that are dangerous.

9News reports that there
have been several sightings

of crocodiles and
snakes that have been

carried along in the floods.
And while you're
about to get a sense

of the ongoing rescue
effort, relief from the rain

is nowhere in sight.
A CNN meteorologist predicted
that Townsville would

receive another 4
inches on Monday,

and 2 to 3 inches on Tuesday.
Entire neighborhoods
are underwater,

and thousands of homes
were in danger of flooding

and strong winds that
are in the forecast.

For thousands of
residents of Townsville,

it has been a long day
and plenty more to come.

I'm standing here
at the Ross River.

Right now at Rosslea is
where the water is coming

from the river, which
has made its way down

the dam at a rapid pace,
heading right across.

You see when we have a look at
the water how fast it is still

moving, and making its way right
into the suburb of Rosslea,

which locals are considering
to be ground zero in what

has been this flood emergency.
On the other side of
where I'm standing

is a suburb of
Annandale, where a number

of properties, as you
see, are completely

inundated on the ground floor.
We've seen helicopters
that are constantly

checking for people
who are there,

trying to pluck them to safety.
We also know the
swift water rescue

teams have been out and about.
So far at least a
dozen rescues, probably

even more overnight as well.
So a huge effort right
across Townsville.

This all started last
night, of course.

The rain has been
building up for days.

But the Ross River Dam, about
10 kilometers as the crow

flies from where I'm
standing at the moment,

it opened automatically.
The dam gates opened because
it reached about 43 meters.

At that stage, it's
built into the dam

that it needed to open up to
let out some of that water

to maintain the
integrity of the dam.

As that happened, the
velocity of the water,

2,000 cubic meters per
second, was released.

It's headed straight down the
river, trying to find its way

to the ocean, cutting a
straight line through suburbs

like this one in Rosslea.
Now, the Queensland Premier
defending the actions

of all emergency
services in saying it's

a tough time for those
people living in Townsville.

CARL AZUZ: The US President's
annual State of the Union

address is Tuesday.
It had originally been
scheduled for last Tuesday,

but it was postponed
because of the US

government's partial shutdown.
When that ended late last month,
the address was rescheduled.

One issue that President Donald
Trump is expected to address

is the major reason for the
shutdown, security at America's

southern border with Mexico.
The Pentagon announced this
week that an additional 3,750

American troops would be
deployed to the border.

Their mission, to give
extra support to US Customs

and Border Protection agents.
This could include assignments
like installing wire fencing,

and watching for
illegal crossings.

The deployment would bring
the total number of US

military forces there to 4,350.
And the new mission is scheduled
to last for three months.

President Trump says
this is necessary to stop

large caravans of people
who are headed to the border

with the goal of entering
the US illegally.

But US representative
Adam Smith,

a Democrat from Washington and
the chairman of the House Armed

Services Committee, questioned
what the additional troops

would be doing at the border,
and suggested the increase

could be unjustified.
On Wednesday's show we plan
to bring you some highlights

of the Republican president's
speech and the Democratic

Party's response.
You'll find it right
here at CNN10.com.

10 second trivia.
American inventor Philo
Farnsworth is best known

for his development of what?
Telegraph, telephone,
television, or telescope.

In the late 1920s,
Farnsworth demonstrated

his invention of the
electronic television system.

A famous story about
Philo Farnsworth

is that he grew up in a house
that didn't have electricity

until he was a teenager.
So going from that to presenting
the first electronic TV

within a few years, well,
it shows how Farnsworth

had chosen the right field.
Of course, the TV itself has
changed a lot over the decades.

But it's still a fixture in
roughly 95% of American homes,

and a growing number
of the ones that

don't have TV's are
still watching programs

on other kinds of screens.
Will this screen itself
eventually become obsolete?

surrounded by screens.

They're how we
entertain ourselves.

But how we'll watch them, the
form factor is changing, too.

The size, the shape, and
even the idea of needing

a screen at all is evolving.
JESSE SCHELL: I think one of
the big changes we're just going

to see over the next
decade is that we're

going to start to have
intelligent conversations

with inanimate objects.
RACHEL CRANE: Is it going
to be on a gaming console?

Is it going to be in everything?
JESSE SCHELL: It's going
to be in everything.

a French startup,

thinks your future entertainment
system will look like this.

It's a projector, sound
system, and security

system rolled into one.
So Keecker's kind of
like an obedient dog.

PIERRE LEBEAU: That's right.
bells and whistles.

Bells and whistles.

And it's just really
useful in the sense

that it can be there to give you
your music, your TV experience.

And it can be away if
you don't want to see it.

is designed to do a lot,

but it isn't perfect yet.
Hey, Keecker, come
to the living room.

Hey, Keecker, show
me the weather.

Keecker, stop moving, please.
This is like a petulant
version of the Amazon Echo.

You have to say it
over and over and over.

But instead of Alexa,
I'm saying Keecker.

You think there may be a day
when Keecker replaces the TV.

think the TV has

to be replaced by something,
because it's just too old.

Like the voice assistants, it's
all about learning and trying

to be better to serve you
better, as opposed to just

being a blank plastic display.
TVs into something

more than just a black box is
a challenge lots of companies

are tackling.
Some are making
screens more flexible,

or getting rid of them entirely.
Others are designing
screens to blend in.

This isn't a painting behind me.
It's actually a TV.
It's called The Frame,
and it's made by Samsung.

Now, when the TV is off,
Samsung provides hundreds

of pieces of art that
can be displayed,

but you can also add your own.
And you can even change the
color of the frame itself.

But what if your screen
could actually talk to you?

JESSE SCHELL: Some of the
biggest advances we're going

to see in home entertainment
are going to be virtual reality

headsets coming into the home.
They're going to make
a big difference.

Augmented reality systems.
And then also artificially
intelligent characters

that start to become part of
games and other experiences.

would be talking then

to like a character
in one of your games

about something that
you're watching.

JESSE SCHELL: Instead of
saying, hey, television, pull up

video number three, you can just
say, oh, hey, Sidney, what do

you think we should watch next?
And then the character
will have some suggestions.

And the two of you will
have a conversation.

RACHEL CRANE: When do these
technologies get good enough?

Do you foresee a
day when screens

just completely disappear?
JESSE SCHELL: It's sort of
like, did television kill radio?

I think just like AR
is going to replace

some screen applications,
screens are going

to survive and hang in there.
RACHEL CRANE: So what will
we be watching in the future?

We're not exactly sure.
I guess we'll just
have to stay tuned.

CARL AZUZ: Golden Colorado,
golden retrievers.

No, not at this gathering
in the Centennial State.

It's called the
Goldens in Golden Gala.

It was held on National
Golden Retriever Day.

It brought together animals
from all dog walks of life.

And it might have
set a record, too.

There were reportedly about
1,000 golden retrievers

and their owners here.
A previous record in Scotland
brought around 361 dogs.

So for fans of goldens,
the idea was pure gold.

But if they can have
goldens in Golden,

can someone host
airedales in Adairville,

bassetts in Bassett,
bostons in Boston,

chihuahuas in chihuahua,
collies in Collieville,

labradors in Labrador,
maltese in Malta,

papillons in Papillon,
terriers in Terre Haute,

or yorkies in Yorkshire?
That'll give them
something to yap about.

And it takes a bite out of
another edition of CNN 10.

I'm Carl Azuz.
