  • CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR: Welcome to CNN STUDENT NEWS. The website for people to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare launched on October 1st.

  • In its first month fewer than 27,000 Americans selected an insurance plan from the federal site.

  • Nearly 80,000 others signed up for coverage, but they used state sites, not the federal one.

  • All together that`s around 106,000 people who signed up for Obamacare in October.

  • The White House expected 1.16 million people to sign up through the end of November.

  • That means more than 900,000 more would need to enroll this month.

  • The site itself has faced major technical problems. During a congressional hearing yesterday, the man in charge of the site said some improvements had been made and more are coming.

  • TODD PARK, U.S. CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER, THE WHITE HOUSE: Unfortunately, the experience of healthcare.gov. has been highly frustrating for many Americans.

  • These problems are unacceptable.

  • So, the goal that has been laid out is for the site not to be perfect, but in November -- people can log on.

  • So, the vast majority of Americans would be able to use the site smoothly.

  • That`s the goal we are -- we`re working very hard to get there.

  • AZUZ: In the Philippines, the United Nations official describes getting aid to victims of Typhoon Haiyan as a major operation.

  • Yesterday she said, quote, "we are getting there", but in my view it`s far too slow.

  • The U.S. military is big part of those efforts. Marine set up at an Air Base bringing in planes full of medical supplies, shelter, materials and other gear.

  • The U.N.`s World Food Program is distributing necessary items, too. The agency said it handed out rice to several thousand people of Wednesday.

  • Survivors are struggling with the need for food and supplies, and with reminders of the devastation that the typhoon caused.

  • Bodies of those who didn`t survive, some buried under debris, other out in the open.

  • UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: I have seen dead people on the streets and the sidewalk. UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: Me too.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And how did that make you feel?

  • UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: It made me feel scared. UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: Me too.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Why did it make you feel scared?

  • UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: Because it was very creepy that there were dead people lying on the streets.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: See if you can I.D. me.

  • I was born in Argentina in 1936.

  • I live in the world`s smallest country, and I`m chief of state.

  • My birth name is Jorge Bergoglio.

  • You probably know me better as Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church.

  • AZUZ: Most talked about person on the Internet. It`s a serious title.

  • When you consider what name is invoked the most on blogs, Internet news sites, social media ...

  • Kate Middleton and Prince George, maybe Beyonce or Justin Bieber come to mind.

  • But far surpassing all these folks, Pope Francis, the leader of the Catholic Church, the largest denomination of the world`s largest religion.

  • The survey came from the Global Language Monitor: a Texas company that tracks what people are talking about on the Internet.

  • Other names and phrases that came up included "Obamacare", "the National Security Agency" and "Edward Snowden."

  • But Pope Francis has gotten a lot of attention in all forms of media this year.

  • He`s made headlines in blogs and tweets for inspirational acts.

  • He`s been criticized for controversial comments on sensitive topics.

  • In Pope Francis people see someone who`s redefined or exemplified or defied what they think a pope should be.

  • And that`s prompted them to share their views on the pope more than anyone else.

  • Well, next up today, first ladies: many wives of U.S. presidents become advocates for certain causes:

  • Laura Bush focused on global literacy, Nancy Reagan helped launch an antidrug campaign.

  • When she became first lady, Michelle Obama promoted healthy eating and exercise.

  • But now, she seems to be shifting her focus and putting part of her attention on education issues.

  • This week, the first lady at a high school in Washington D.C. Her message was about continuing education after high school.

  • She talked to the students about some of the challenges she faced growing up, and she said that the future is shaped more by their attitudes than by their circumstances.

  • MICHELLE OBAMA: Maybe you`ve had problems at home and you`ve had to step up, take on extra responsibilities for your family.

  • Maybe you come from a tough neighborhood, and you`ve been surrounded by things like violence and drugs.

  • Maybe one of your parents has lost a job, and you`ve had to struggle just to make it here today.

  • One of the most important things you all must understand about yourselves is that those experiences are not weaknesses.

  • They are not something to be ashamed of. Experiences like those can make you stronger and more determined.

  • They can teach you all kinds of skills that you could never learn in a classroom.

  • The skills that will lead you to success anywhere in life.

  • AZUZ: All right, high school students, this one is for you. There is something we want you to do before a graduation.

  • We want you to introduce our show.

  • We know you`re older than 13, so you can go to the "How Do I" box on our homepage and click the "Send us a show" open link. Get all the details.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Is this legit?

  • 25 million Americans have some form of diabetes.

  • It`s true. Experts estimate that of the 25.8 million Americans with diabetes, 7 million haven`t been diagnosed.

  • AZUZ: Today is World Diabetes Day.

  • This year`s theme is education and prevention. We mentioned there different form of diabetes. All of them involve how the body uses blood glucose or blood sugar.

  • Glucose is a main source of energy for your cells.

  • When it enters your body, your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin that helps break the glucose down.

  • In diabetics, the body either doesn`t make enough insulin or it doesn`t use it as well as it should.

  • Diabetes can lead to high blood pressure, heart and kidney disease, blindness.

  • It`s the 7 leading cause of death in America. There is no cure, but there are treatments.

  • Doctors recommend eating well an exercising to help control or prevent diabetes.

  • And a diagnosis doesn`t mean the end of an active life.

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Three, three ...

  • SANJAY GUPTA, CNN CORRESPONDENT: In (ph) Stolaz, 20-year old Ryan Reed is living his dream.

  • RYAN REED, ROUSH FENWAY DEVELOPMENT DRIVER: And I`ve been (ph) NASCAR driver since I was four years old.

  • GUPTA: He was just 17 when NASCAR top drivers recruited him for his development team.

  • REED: It was just like everything was falling right into place with my life and nothing could stop me.

  • GUPTA: But something did.

  • REED: I remember being thirsty a lot, I was using the bathroom extremely frequently and losing a lot of weight.

  • GUPTA: One of the first things his doctor`s checked his blood sugar. Reed was diagnosed with type one diabetes.

  • REED: They were like, no, Ryan. You`ll never race again.

  • GUPTA: Reed found the doctor willing to help him get back on the track.

  • There have been adjustments: a new diet, a (inaudible) sensor has been implanted in his abdomen that transmits his blood sugar readings.

  • There is a continuous glucose monitor mounted to the dash inside his race car.

  • That allows him to check his blood sugar during the race and his fire suit -- now sports a ball`s eye.

  • REED: We have a guy trained on the crew to reach into the (inaudible) pace up and gave me an insulin injection, should I need it.

  • GUPTA: Reed made his debut in NASCAR second biggest series, April 26th, and just last month, he finished in the top ten. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN,

  • AZUZ: Today`s "Roll Call" segment is going to the dawgs -- the bulldogs an the terriers an the timber wolves.

  • Terriers we are talking about are from Newark Tech in Newark New Jersey.

  • Idaho is home to those bull dogs -- the Kimberly Bull Dogs -- thanks for watching, Mariel (ph).

  • And Fort Bragg High in Fort Bragg, California -- you can brag that the timber wolves made our "Roll Call".

  • What would you do if you found money inside of something you bought from someone else?

  • This goes back to our story yesterday, when a man returned $98,000 he found inside a desk.

  • Do you give it back? Do you keep it? What do you do?

  • A lot of people on Facebook agreed with Kelly who said, give it back. Is there another option?

  • But a lot of you said, there are other options.

  • Annika says, first of all, go to the police.

  • Matthew tell us, "I might try to find the owner, but I wouldn`t try too hard, though."

  • Jenny Lee says, she would give one third of it to family, one third to charity, and one third for myself.

  • Christian says, "Keep some and give that part to homeless for their survival."

  • Joshua says, "It all depends on how much money was found. If it was only 50 or 100 dollars, I`d probably keep it, but 98,0000 -- with an amount that big, you can`t just keep it. You need to return it."

  • TreQuan tells us, "I would keep it, because if I buy something, whatever is inside, is mine."

  • Ariana disagrees with that saying, "Just because you bought the desk doesn`t mean you bought the money."

  • Last story today is about mass transit that`s designed to get people moving.

  • But maybe not in the way you think.

  • This machine was unveiled recently at a subway stop in Moscow. It`s a ticket machine,

  • But the number of 30 that you are seeing on it, isn`t how much money you need to put it, it`s how many squats you need to do.

  • 30 squats in less than two minutes earned you a ticket to ride.

  • The idea is to promote the upcoming Olympics and the healthy lifestyle.

  • There are other ideas like this in the works, too. So, I guess we`ll have to wait to see if they work out or if they don`t end up amounting to squat --

  • All right, back tomorrow wrap of the week -- we`ll see you then.

  • END
