  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • CARL AZUZ: Hi.

  • I'm Carl Azuz.

  • It's always great to have you watching "CNN 10" as we get you

  • up-to-speed on world events.

  • This March 7, we're following up on a story

  • we reported on February 12.

  • It concerns what's being called the last stand

  • of the ISIS terrorist group in the Middle

  • Eastern nation of Syria.

  • ISIS, an acronym for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria,

  • once controlled a large amount of territory

  • in those two countries.

  • But fighting by those nations' militaries, local militias,

  • and international teams, including a coalition led

  • by the US, have almost completely driven

  • ISIS out of its strongholds.

  • The battle in the eastern Syrian village of Baghouz

  • has been raging since mid-February.

  • There are signs it's coming to an end.

  • Within the past couple days, hundreds of ISIS fighters

  • have surrendered to Syrian Democratic Forces, a group

  • supported by the United States, and it's

  • fighting ISIS on the ground.

  • The ISIS terrorists were part of a wave of thousands of people

  • who are fleeing Baghouz.

  • When the village is finally recaptured from ISIS,

  • and the commander says that could happen within a few days,

  • it'll signal the end of ISIS's territorial control

  • which once included 7 and 1/2 million people over an area

  • the size of Portugal.

  • Still, even with civilians and terrorists flowing out

  • of Baghouz, a United Nations committee

  • estimates that tens of thousands of ISIS members

  • are still scattered across Iraq and Syria,

  • though they're not part of this battle.

  • BEN WEDEMAN: The final battle to take that last slice

  • of territory occupied by ISIS.

  • Now, what you're seeing behind me right now

  • is trucks with ISIS members, and their families,

  • and others who are leaving that encampment,

  • that last encampment.

  • Those are men in the back of that truck.

  • According to officials at the Syrian--

  • with the Syrian Democratic Forces, since this morning

  • alone, more than 800 people have left that area.

  • That includes ISIS fighters and others.

  • And anyone left behind is going to be coming,

  • or has been, in fact, under constant bombardment.

  • [EXPLOSIONS IN THE DISTANCE]

  • Airstrikes, artillery, and mortar rounds

  • rain down upon the so-called Islamic State's miserable

  • realm, reduced to a ragged cluster of tents,

  • wrecked cars, and trucks perhaps just a half square mile.

  • Despite the onslaught people--

  • many, it appears-- can be seen walking among the tents.

  • The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have given up trying

  • to estimate how many people--

  • all fighters, they say--

  • are still there.

  • The pounding carries on around the clock.

  • There is no rest for the last holdouts.

  • Midnight, and the earth shakes.

  • Night into day, the onslaught continues.

  • ISIS lived by the bullet and the bomb,

  • and by the bullet and the bomb--

  • [EXPLOSION]

  • --it is dying.

  • And that's been 800 people since this morning.

  • But now we're seeing truck after truck of people.

  • It does appear in many of them-- in fact, we saw from the trucks

  • there-- many men are inside.

  • So it does appear that there are far more, far more civilians

  • inside that little speck of land a half square mile

  • than anybody thought.

  • CARL AZUZ: It's been almost exactly five years

  • since Malaysian Airlines flight 370 vanished,

  • and international investigators don't look like they're

  • any closer to solving what's become one of aviation's

  • greatest mysteries.

  • Malaysia's prime minister says his country plans to continue

  • searching for the plane.

  • And the families of the missing continue to meet,

  • as they did recently, to support each other

  • and to keep international attention

  • focused on the disappearance.

  • There were 239 people aboard the flight from

  • Malaysia's capital to China's.

  • Those two countries, plus Australia,

  • spent an estimated $150 million in their official search

  • for the plane.

  • They didn't find it.

  • And the second attempt to locate MH370, carried out by a US

  • company called Ocean Infinity, wrapped up last year,

  • also without answers.

  • RICHARD QUEST: The missing airliner

  • that disappeared on March the 8th,

  • 2014, after the flight left Kuala Lumpur bound for Beijing.

  • Then dropped off radar an hour after takeoff.

  • Later, satellite data showed investigators

  • that the plane had continued to fly for up to eight hours

  • and finally crashed in the Indian Ocean

  • off the Australian coast.

  • The experts narrowed the crash site to around 120,000

  • square kilometer search zone.

  • An extensive and exhaustive effort,

  • including a deep ocean search, found no sign of the aircraft.

  • Then over several years, debris confirmed to be from MH370,

  • has washed up along the Eastern African coast.

  • Still, the main body section--

  • the fuselage of the plane--

  • remains missing.

  • CARL AZUZ: 10-second trivia.

  • Which of these automobile brands is not

  • manufactured by General Motors?

  • Buick, Chevrolet, Saturn, or GMC?

  • This is a bit tricky.

  • The answer is Saturn.

  • It used to be part of GM, but it was shut down in 2010.

  • The last Chevy Cruze has rolled off the line at a GM plant

  • in Lordstown, Ohio.

  • It's a community located between Cleveland and Pittsburgh,

  • and its economy benefited from having

  • a General Motors plant there.

  • But the company closed the factory this week.

  • Its CEO says Americans aren't buying

  • as many sedans like the Cruze, so GM, like other US car

  • companies, is shifting toward making more trucks and SUVs,

  • which are also more profitable.

  • The landscape for American auto workers

  • has been changing for decades.

  • There's been increased competition

  • from Japanese carmakers.

  • Some US companies have outsourced jobs to Mexico.

  • Whether GM will use its Lordstown facility

  • to make another vehicle or give it up altogether

  • is a highly important question for both the workers

  • and the local economy itself.

  • MICHELLE RIPPLE: It would be a shame for them

  • to shut it down after 52 years.

  • I would love to see my daughter or one of my other kids

  • get in out there and follow their grandfather's

  • footsteps, their mother's footsteps,

  • their uncle's footsteps.

  • - And I'm out here protesting the pending

  • closure of this plant.

  • God bless you and empower you.

  • [CARS HONKING]

  • And here these workers that are honking their horns

  • know what's at stake.

  • AJ SUMELL: There's no doubt GM has

  • been really important to the overall economy

  • for the past 40 years.

  • Their potential loss is devastating to the economy.

  • A bigger impact is associated with the fact

  • that it's estimated as many as three to four

  • jobs are directly dependent on each job

  • at an auto manufacturer.

  • That's the equivalent of a 4% to 5%

  • increase in unemployment in a relatively

  • short period of time.

  • MICHELLE RIPPLE: As each day goes by,

  • it's more of a reality check knowing that we're almost done.

  • I've been wearing that badge for 18 years.

  • I am in the trim department.

  • I do left side carpet retainers.

  • We do build quality cars.

  • It is a pride thing.

  • AJ SUMELL: It's hard to just get retrained and a new set

  • of skills to be able to work in other industries that

  • are hiring.

  • And oftentimes, those jobs involve

  • less pay and worse benefits.

  • MICHELLE RIPPLE: I don't have a problem going back to school,

  • although I'm a lot older than--

  • [LAUGHS] kinda old.

  • If that's what it's gonna take, then so be it.

  • You know?

  • I gotta do what I gotta do to survive and to support my kids.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • CARL AZUZ: There are a lot of things that robots

  • are learning to do these days.

  • Take, for instance, watering a plant, watering a cup,

  • giving a fist bump and making it blow up.

  • One of the more impressive feats of this machine that

  • was recently revealed by a Chinese technology company

  • is its ability to thread a needle.

  • It's part of an effort to show that robots are

  • getting more dexterous and more effective at interacting

  • with people.

  • (SINGING) What comes next?

  • We're hanging by a thread.

  • If robots become tailors, what will tailors do instead?

  • In the garment world, things ain't always as they seem.

  • You just can't replace an expert's eye

  • with that of a machine.

  • It's not keen.

  • It's too green.

  • It can't drape the perfect jean.

  • Artificial sense ain't fashion sense

  • when sensing how to preen.

  • So if you're into tailoring and placing perfect stitches,

  • don't be needled or be threatened by something

  • that's got glitches.
