CARL AZUZ: The same week
that the United Kingdom

was originally scheduled to
leave the European Union,

British lawmakers have voted
to take control of that process

from their prime minister.
And the questions hanging
in the air just got bigger.

I'm Carl Azuz.
This is "CNN 10."
In 2016, British
voters chose to leave

the European Union, an
economic and political

union of 28 countries.
No one's ever left it before.
The complicated part
was determining how

Britain would separate itself.
How would its laws be affected?
What would its trade
deals look like?

What about immigration and
people from other countries

currently living in Britain?
The government of British
Prime Minister Theresa May

had been negotiating these
terms with the European Union.

Their original deadline to
get this done was March 29.

And they reached a deal.
But Britain's Parliament
needs to approve that deal

before it's completed.
And so far, lawmakers
have rejected it twice.

Last week, the European Union
agreed to delay the deadline

for Britain to leave.
And this week, British
lawmakers voted 329 to 302

to take control of the
parliamentary timetable

from the government.
It's the first time in more
than 100 years that's happened.

And it means that Parliament,
not the government

of Prime Minister May,
is temporarily in control

of the Brexit process.
So what now?
The basic options lawmakers
have are the same.

They can try to delay the
Brexit process further.

They could allow Britain
to leave the European

Union without a deal,
which could temporarily

hurt Britain's economy.
Or they could keep working on
a deal with the European Union,

though the EU may not
agree to a different plan.

Meanwhile, the prime
minister can try a third time

to get her deal passed.
As Parliament
grapples with Brexit,

some British businesses
are in a holding pattern.

ISA SOARES: Recent winter
months would typically

see a decline in business
for this cold storage

hub outside of London.
As you can see, we

have reached maximum capacity.
ISA SOARES: But this year
has proved very different.

of our existing clients

are panicking due to the
uncertainty around Brexit,

and therefore, stockpiling and
getting goods shipped in to us

in larger bulks and quantities.
site stores produce

for a range of clientele, from
manufacturers and restaurants

to caterers and
small businesses.

And there's space here for over
2,000 pallets of frozen goods,

items such as bread, chicken
breasts, as well as ice cream.

But fully stocked shelves
present an unwelcome problem

in this industry.
quite a few new inquiries

over the last couple of months.
It's bad for business.
Because in an ideal world,
you don't want to have to be

turning away any business.
ISA SOARES: Threats of
leaving the EU without a deal

or with a bad one have created
a safety first approach

for many retailers across the
UK, who fear trade disruptions.

Those with enough
resources are stocking

up while they have the chance.
know that retailers

are taking a number of steps.
They've been looking to
hire extra staff working

in their customs
units to help to get

things through the borders if
there should be any delays.

They've also been looking
at what they stock.

Is there a chance,
perhaps, to source

things locally from the UK?
Everybody wants to do that.
And of course, it's a
great marketing tool

to talk about
locally grown produce

and British produce
to British consumers.

But the simple fact is, Britain
only produces half of the food

that it actually eats.
ISA SOARES: The government has
so far reassured the public

that food supply,
irrespective of Brexit,

will remain unchanged.
A spokesperson
for the Department

for Environment, Food, and
Rural Affairs said this to CNN.

"The UK has a high degree of
food security built on access

to a diverse range
of sources, including

strong domestic production and
imports from third countries.

This will continue to be the
case as we leave the EU."

They added, "While we are
making sensible preparations

for all eventualities
as we leave the EU,

the government is not and
will not be storing food."

know that 10% of consumers

have said that they are
already stockpiling goods.

But another 25% of
consumers have said they

would consider stockpiling.
ISA SOARES: And as Brexit
uncertainty continues

to fester, businesses and
consumers must now choose how

best to fill their freezers.
Isa Soares, CNN, London.
CARL AZUZ: Next up, after
50 years of sending rockets

and satellites and humans into
space, we've left a lot of junk

up there.
And it's becoming a bigger
problem with every launch.

10 years ago, two
satellites collided,

adding to the millions
of pieces of debris

that's orbiting the Earth.
If more collisions
happen, millions of people

could lose their internet
or phone service.

Satellite TV could be taken out.
GPS service could be lost.
With thousands of new satellites
being planned for the years

ahead, some companies,
like OneWeb,

are taking steps toward
retrieving defunct satellites

or leaving enough fuel in
them to ensure they head back

into Earth's atmosphere to
burn up once their missions are

The company says
this is expensive.

And though NASA recommends that
every space company comes up

with a way to
remove its products

once they're done working, it
doesn't punish those who don't.

So what the risk
is coming down to

is whether enough
is done to keep

space clean as
people and businesses

continue to explore it.
10-second trivia.
Which of these events
took place in 1992?

Lillehammer Winter Olympics,
Barcelona Summer Olympics,

election of George HW
Bush, or the launch

of the Hubble Telescope?
In the summer of 1992,
the Olympic games

were held in Barcelona, Spain.
And it makes sense
that the daughter

of a woman who competed
in those Olympics

would also be a
competitive athlete.

But what makes Carmen
Alder a positive athlete,

in our ongoing series, is how
she's set an example for others

on the track in America and
in her mother's home country.

You can nominate a
positive athlete you know

at CNN.com/positiveathlete.
CARMEN ALDER: I had tried a
bunch of sports before running.

None of the sports really
stuck like running.

Once I tried, I was like,
oh, yeah, I'm good at this.

her four semesters

in high school so far, she
has won five state titles.

She is a coach's dream.
She cares just so much
about her teammates.

It's really not about her.
CARMEN ALDER: I remember
growing up watching my mom.

You know, she'd go
out and train and run.

And you know, I kind of
wanted to be like my mom.

14, I ran for Ecuador.

And then I made it to the
Olympics, to Barcelona in '92.

And eventually,
that's what brought

me to the United States.
I became a coach because we
didn't find any distance coach.

And we started the Youth Club.
And then last summer,
we went to Ecuador.

I took my girls to train there.
We did a clinic.
We saw that there was
a lot of kids there

that were interested
in running too.

mom owns some land.

And the whole summer,
she was like, OK, guys,

we're going to go run
in, like, altitude.

And she was like hyping us up.
And so we got this
group of kids.

And we all drove up in this bus.
And we started running.
And we finally did six miles.
And then after that, we
were all-- like, all of us

were, like, so tired.
Like, oh, my gosh.
That was really fun just to
see how many kids there were,

like, who were willing
to come on a Saturday,

all the way up there, in
the cold, and run together.

That was a special experience.
JANETH ALDER: I think it
was really good and really

uplifting for her to see
all the kids that, you know,

trying to do the same
things that she's doing.

And I think, for her,
also, saw how fortunate she

is to have the
opportunities that she

has here that most of those
kids there, they don't have it.

of the main goals

is to help them
get scholarships.

'Cause through
that, you know, you

open so many more opportunities,
like, so many jobs

that they want to do.
And I think that education
is really important.

And most kids there
probably don't

have the money
needed to you get you

know, the degrees they want.
And you know, if running can
open up that door for them,

then I think-- you
know, I'm all for it.

CARL AZUZ: For 10 out of
10, it's "Alien," the play.

Drama students at a
New Jersey high school

recently took a horror classic
from 1979, adapted a script,

and put it on stage.
It was a budget production.
One senior said the
crew used whatever

cardboard and scrap metal was
lying around to build the set.

But it was pretty convincing.
The production went
viral after viewers

posted clips on social media.
And the local mayor's
office has funded an encore.

Now, you might be asking,
what happened to "Our Town."

What kind of "Midsummer
Night's Dream"

led those students to
"Shrek" tradition, not

go "Into the Woods," leave
"Alice in Wonderland,"

and take on "A Crucible" that
makes "Beauty and the Beast"

look like "The Little Mermaid"?
maybe this December, they'll
sing "A Christmas Carol."

But for now, their
"Little Shop of Horrors"

has them "Mary Poppins"
on social media.

I'm Carl Azuz, taking
a bow, on "CNN 10."
