Carl Azuz for CNN 10.

Welcome to everyone
watching worldwide.

It's great to see
you this Monday.

The month of April is
drawing to a close,

and this Friday,
the first Friday

of the new month, the US
government's latest jobs report

is due out.
It'll look at
economic indicators

like the unemployment
rate, the percentage

of the American workforce
that doesn't have a job.

For the past two
months, it's been

at 3.8% percent, considered a
very low rate and a good sign

for the economy.
The report monitors
whether wages are growing

and by how much.
Wage growth can be a good sign.
And it'll examine the
number of jobs that were

added to the economy in April.
That statistic has been a
roller coaster this year.

Hiring boomed in January with
more than 300,000 jobs added.

The number dropped
dramatically in February

with less than 35,000 added,
and it bounced back in March

with just under
200,000 new jobs.

Predicting what the economy
will do, how much it'll grow,

is done by looking at
information like this

and by reading the trends
in the US stock market.

Christine Romans from
CNN Money explores

how it continues to
rise and what could slow

that down in the months ahead.
is still the word in stocks.

After one of the best
first quarters in years,

April brings the major US
averages close to record highs.

This year, the NASDAQ is up more
than 20%, the S&P 500 up 16%,

the Dow up 13%.
The Dow is now up more than
40% since the election.

Now so far, the beginning
of earnings season

hasn't changed this narrative.
Yes, profit growth
is expected to turn

negative in the first quarter.
But guess what?
Investors largely
saw that coming.

The US economy is growing,
and the job market is strong.

Wages are beginning to pick up,
but overall inflation is low.

There's enough
confidence in the markets

and the economy to bring
a wave of tech start-ups

public, the so-called
unicorn parade of IPOs.

10 years into an economic
expansion and JPMorgan Chase

CEO Jamie Dimon told
shareholders the expansion

could run for years more.
What could go wrong?
Well, plenty.
The early benefits of
new tax laws in the US

are beginning to fade.
Rising gas prices
could bite consumers.

Oil prices are up 35%
this year, and the average

price of gas in the US jumped
almost $0.10 in a recent week.

America's trade wars are ongoing
and trade talks unfinished.

Beware a breakdown in
trade talks with China

or a worsening trade
situation between the US

and its largest trading
partner, the European Union.

President Trump has
until May to decide

whether to slap tariffs up to
25% on European car imports.

Any of these factors could
make the historic stock market

run a lot more vulnerable.
- 10 second trivia.
According to the Pew Research
Center, 77% of Americans

have what?
Is it a smartphone,
landline, dog, or passport?

Smartphones are the answer
here, and cell phones in general

are owned by 95% of Americans.
CARL AZUZ: A debate is raging
over kids and screen time--

how much of the day they
should spend in front

of TVs, smartphones, tablets.
The World Health
Organization recently

released guidelines on this.
It says for young
kids, screen time

needs to be limited to
an hour a day or less.

That's similar to a
recommendation by the

American Academy of Pediatrics.
Experts say too much
screen time early in life

is associated with delays
in language skills,

social skills, even the
brain's ability to think.

But there are other studies
that suggest limited screen

time, especially with
educational apps or programs,

can encourage
creativity and sometimes

problem-solving skills.
So the research is mixed.
In some classrooms
for older kids,

have found a place

for artificial intelligence.
What's not known is whether
this could be a substitute

for old-school education.
- A timeless scene that
has been played out

in schools around the
world for centuries--

young students enjoying
their break between lessons.

But back in the classroom
of this school in Abu Dhabi,

a transformation is happening.
- In this lesson, you
learn to solve equations

with rational coefficients.
- Whiteboards,
markers, and books

have been replaced with
interactive calendars,

digital avatars, and laptops.
- Let's solve this
equation together.

- 14-year-old Maria Mohammed
is just one of 25,000 students

in the UAE and the US
being taught through

the Alef Education platform.
we was using books,

it was like, so boring.
So it's nice to use new
technology in learning

not in a traditional way.
- Founded in Abu Dhabi in
2015, the online program

is using technology to
disrupt traditional education

in the classroom.
Children are encouraged to
create their own avatar,

and through the use
of videos, animation,

digital content, and
questions along the way,

the Alef platform aids learning.
At its headquarters in Abu
Dhabi in a secured control room,

analysts use
artificial intelligence

to make sense of the reams
of information coming in.

- So we capture millions of
data points on a daily basis.

A human could not process
that many data points.

- The premise is simple.
If a pupil struggles
with a concept,

the system adapts and presents
the lesson again in a form more

tailored to the student.
The result is reframing
the future of education.

- Wouldn't it be great if
you could look at artificial

intelligence and data to drive
kids into the right careers,

into the right choices,
post-secondary education?

- When it comes to
adopting AI technology,

the United Arab Emirates is
one country leading the way.

But with artificial
intelligence expected

to generate $96 billion dollars
towards the economy by 2030,

some are worried that this
technology comes at a cost,

with a growing debate over
whether the benefits outweigh

increased screen
time for children

or potential privacy concerns.
for Disease Control

estimates that 1 in
59 children in America

has been diagnosed with
autism spectrum disorder.

It can involve
problems communicating,

bonding emotionally, or
repeating the same behaviors.

Dr. Wendy Ross was
named a CNN Hero in 2014

for her work to help
children on the spectrum

take part in
everyday activities.

Now she is helping
the medical industry

better understand patients
with autism spectrum disorder.

- Hi, good to see you, Dr. Ross.
WENDY ROSS: How are you?
Hi, Alex.
Patients coming

in on the spectrum
may have a more

difficult time communicating.
Those with autism also have
heart attacks or cancer,

and without doctors
that can understand how

to interact with them,
they're not going

to get appropriate health care.
WENDY ROSS: Alex, I know you've
been using the letter board.

But can you tell
me, what was it like

to be unable to
communicate for so long?

My patient, Alex Lepap,

despite being
nonverbal, actually has

an IQ that is very, very high.
INTERPRETER: It was frustrating.
I had some tough days.
But the first time
I spelled openly,

I knew my life had
changed forever.

never want to underestimate

somebody's ability.
But then again, doctors need
to understand, for someone

on the autism spectrum
who doesn't often

look at faces, that pain scale?
That's not really a good way
of monitoring their pain.

Some of the accommodations
that our program provides

are noise-canceling
headphones, things like fidgets

to help reduce their anxiety.
We are really providing
autism-friendly health care.

WENDY ROSS: What would you like
to tell other people about you

and other people
on the spectrum?

thirsty to learn, period.

Our brains are like sponges.
Alex has a lot to say,

and so he's really become
a huge part of our program

in terms of consultation on
making things autism friendly.

WENDY ROSS: What was
the moment like when

you realized that other
people could understand you?

INTERPRETER: It was like the
Eagles winning the Super Bowl.

We want those

on the spectrum to exceed
everyone's expectations,

including their own.
And we would like to exceed
everyone's expectations

in the care that we deliver.
of kids with dogs

know the animals only wish
they could ride the school bus.

Now they can.
A man in Portland, Oregon
offers a service that

picks up pups in a custom van.
He takes them to a large,
fenced-in pasture that's

like this giant dog
park for the day

so they can run,
play, and be dogs.

And then he takes
them back home.

One difference between
this and school recess,

though-- sometimes,
kids are allowed to join

the animals on a play date.
So in this case, the kids and
the van have gone to the dogs.

Wonder if the animals
hound or Pug their owners

about this, barking about how
they like staying home Mastiff

the time but love their
Newfoundland of recess

and wish they could Schipperke
over terrier more often

From time to time, they've gotta
let out their Rott-wilder side.

I'm Carl Azuz, dal-making a
bark-load of puns for CNN.
