  • CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR: U.S. presidents are elected every four years.

  • Members of the House of Representatives, every two years.

  • But there is a November election day every year. In 2013, it was yesterday.

  • In different states and cities people cast votes for governor, mayor, or different ballot measures. Those are votes on certain issues.

  • We don`t have the results, because the polls closed after we produced this program.

  • But we want to focus on one ballot measures in Colorado -- 11 counties in that state were voting on whether to secede, to split off and form a 51 state.

  • If it passed, it would still have to be approved by the Colorado legislature and the U.S. Congress.

  • No one really expected it to pass, not even the people who support it.

  • They say the point of a vote was to send a message about how some people in rural Colorado feel disenfranchised, ignored ore marginalized because of greater focus on urban areas.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Welcome to northern Colorado.

  • Some 60 miles outside of Denver.

  • No hustle and bustle of city life here.

  • SEAN CONWAY, WELD COUNTY COMMISSIONER: I saw the struggles that my grandparents, my parents went through to create what I believe is an oasis in the desert.

  • And I see that oasis in the desert threatened.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway is a third generation Coloradan.

  • Raised on a ranch, fighting for his rural life style and livelihood.

  • CONWAY: We`re tired of being ignored. We`re tired of being politically disenfranchised.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: That`s the message of the 51 initiative.

  • Fed up with new gun control laws, expended oil and gas regulations and increased renewable energy standards,

  • recently enacted at the Colorado capital, Conway is leading the charge to form a new state.

  • He`s wrangled support from across hundreds of acres of farmland, at least 11 rural counties. North of Denver now threatening to secede.

  • SETH MASKET, POLITICAL SCIENCE PROFESSOR, UNIVERSITY OF DENVER: If they don`t see a way to actually move the state back in the Republican control, they figured maybe just leaving it is the only other option.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Political science professor Seth Masket says the secession movement is an example of Republicans who are the minority in this state taking desperate measure.

  • In Colorado, Democrats have control of the Senate, House and governor`s office.

  • While supporters of the referendum know there is no practical implication from the vote, they say it`s a sure way to get attention for their cause.

  • But not everyone agrees with this strategy.

  • KEN BUCK, WELD COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY: The best strategy for dealing with political issues to the political system.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Weld County D.A. Ken Buck, a high profile Colorado Republicans is among those frustrated, but he plans to vote against the 51 state initiative.

  • BUCK: I think what we need to do is we need to make sure that we work doubly hard to get the folks who aren`t listening out of office and to make sure that our voices are heard.

  • ANNOUNCER: See if you can I.D. me.

  • I`m an Asian country that borders Pakistan and Myanmar.

  • My government is considered the world`s largest democracy.

  • I`m home to more than a billion people.

  • And my capital is New Delhi.

  • I`m India, and I got my independence from the United Kingdom in 1947.

  • AZUZ: India launched its first satellite in 1975.

  • It put a space craft into orbit around the Moon in 2008.

  • It`s planning a manned space flight for 2016.

  • But this launch on Tuesday could put India into an elite group of space explorers.

  • The rocket is carrying an order that`s bound for Mars.

  • It will take ten months for the mission to reach the Red planet.

  • If it`s successful, it would be a big achievement for India and its space program.

  • But there`s some debate about whether the investment is money well spent.

  • MALLIKA KAPUR, CNN CORRESPONDENT: The cost of this mission is $73 million.

  • That`s a bugging by international standards.

  • Still, many critics in India say it`s a luxury this country can`t afford.

  • Not when so many of its people live on less than a dollar a day.

  • But India defends this cost: plus, it`s billion dollars annual investment in its space program.

  • Saying that satellites are used for a number of applications: in TV broadcasting, tele-education, telemedicine, defense and meteorology.

  • AZUZ: A sort of food fight is brewing in Irwindale, California.

  • Company that makes Sriracha sauce, moved its factory there this year.

  • To make Sriracha you have to harvest chili peppers.

  • This company does that from September through December, in order to make a year`s worth of sauce.

  • But the activity inside the factory is offending some neighbor`s olfactory systems.

  • MIGUEL MARQUEZ, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Call it Chili-gate 2013. Sriracha hot sauce, it`s telltale green top and rooster on the bottle is in the hot seat.

  • Complaints that smell emanating from its new plant in east Los Angeles is making people sick.

  • CELESTE GAMEZ, ALLERGIC TO PEPPERS: It smells more like pepper. It`s very like -- stinging.

  • MARQUEZ: Celeste Gamez, a college freshman who lives in the shadow of the plant, says the chili makes her sneeze and her throat soar.

  • Others have complained to the city of Irwindale of headaches and difficulty breathing.

  • The city now following injunction to force the plant to either fix the problem or shut down.

  • DAVID TRAN, OWNER, HUY FONG FOODS INC.: Now, it seems (INAUDIBLE) they are not friendly to me.

  • MARQUEZ: David Tran is the Vietnamese immigrant who turned the mix of red jalapeno peppers, garlic, salt and vinegar into a multimillion dollar global brand.

  • He says the plant, which was chosen to be built here by the city of Irwindale cost $40 million and has state of the art air filters. Even taking the media to the roof to prove it.

  • At fault its harvest and chili grinding time.

  • Truckload after truckload of the hot peppers brought in over a three months period.

  • In the last week, the air quality department has logged 11 complaints. It sent an inspector finding no smells, no violation at the plant.

  • While Sriracha might look hotter than (inaudible), it`s nowhere near.

  • Rating only about 2,000 points on the Scoville scale, that`s about half where tabasco sauce is and nowhere near the hottest chilis in the world.

  • Sriracha`s jalapeno nowhere near that hot. And the new plant has brought needed jobs to the area.

  • Even those who suffer, agree.

  • GAMEZ: If it`s possible to fix the problem, then that will be best because even one of my friends recently got a job there.

  • MARQUEZ: How hot is too hot?

  • Now in the hands of a judge.

  • Miguel Marquez, CNN, Los Angeles.

  • ANNOUNCER: It`s time for "The Shoutout."

  • What is the world`s most spoken language?

  • If you think you know it, then shout it out!

  • Is it English, Arabic, Spanish or Mandarin?

  • You`ve got three seconds, go!

  • Mandarin Chinese is the first language of over 845 million people, which makes it the world`s most spoken language.

  • That`s your answer and that`s your "Shoutout."

  • AZUZ: Help wanted, when is the last time you saw that sign for a job whose median salary was $43,000 a year that could pay upwards of 100,000 and wasn`t in medicine or computer engineering?

  • Recruiters from police departments to the State Department, from Apple to the Army are looking for a few good translators.

  • Well, translators and interpreters. There`s a difference.

  • Interpreters specialize in spoken language, translators focus on what`s written.

  • Both are part of a field that`s expected to grow by 42 percent between 2010 and 2020.

  • And that doesn`t include the military, which is also looking for language gurus.

  • Many U.S. high school students are required to study a foreign language, and many of them take Spanish.

  • Because there are so many people who speak Spanish in the U.S., it`s not one of the most lucrative languages to know, not here anyway.

  • But if you`re sharpening skills in Arabic, spoken throughout the Middle East and North Africa or Chinese or Portuguese, you could find your fluency in demand from coast to coast and well beyond.

  • You could go from fluency to affluency.

  • So what can you do about it? Become fluent.

  • Become familiar with the culture of the language you`ve learned.

  • Become certified by an organization like the International Association of Conference Interpreters.

  • All these could help you become employed in one of the nation`s fastest growing occupations.

  • Buona Fortuna, (INAUDIBLE), good luck.

  • It`s worldwide Wednesday, that means we`re going global for today`s "Roll Call" with stops on three continents:

  • in North America, we`re heading to the Canadian province of Ontario to check in with the 49ers from Sacred Heart Catholic School in Sarnia.

  • We`ll hop across the Atlantic to hit your next, Aviano, Italy, and the Saints from Aviano Middle/High School.

  • And our last stop is in Asia on the Japanese island of Okinawa, the Kadena High School Panthers make today` roll.

  • The old saying goes, curiosity killed the cat.

  • It only trapped the elk. This elk.

  • The man who took this video says the animal got curious about this trampoline, then he got stuck inside the safety net.

  • Other elk gathered around to kind of see what was going on.

  • Their rescue efforts, though, were at a standstill.

  • Eventually, the homeowner made his way to the trampoline and helped the elk get out.

  • The animal ran off, safe and sound.

  • And probably, with the renewed bouncing its step. At least, we assume so after all that elksitement.

  • It wouldn`t surprise me if this video goes viral since the animal is totally Internet.

  • We weren`t show elkactly what puns to make when we first saw the video, but we knew they`d be of this elk.

  • We hoof to go. For CNN STUDENT NEWS, I`m Carl Azuz.

  • END
