CNN 10 – March 22, 2019

Your down the middle explanation of events taking place world wide. I`m Carl Azuz, thank
you for watching this March 22nd. We`re taking
you to New Zealand right now as the South Pacific nation mourns 50 people who were killed
in a shooting at two mosques last week. The country`s prime
minister said on Thursday that major changes were ahead concerning the country`s gun laws. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) JACINDA ARDERN, PRIME MINISTER OF NEW ZEALAND:
Today I am announcing that New Zealand will ban all military style, semi-automatic weapons.
We will also ban all assault rifles. We will ban all
high capacity magazines. In short, every semi-automatic weapon used in the terrorist attack on Friday will be banned in this country. (END VIDEO CLIP) AZUZ: Prime Minister Ardern said the new laws
would make her country safer and that she hoped they`d be in place by April 11th. New
Zealand police estimate that there are 1.2 million guns in
the country, roughly one for every four people. Not every kind will be banned. Some classes
of firearms used in hunting, farming and pest
control will still be allowed. But many New Zealanders have legally bought the kinds of
guns that are now illegal and the government`s planning a buy
back program to pay them when they turn in their guns. New Zealand`s police association says it supports
the new law calling the government courageous for acting to ban the weapons but not everyone
is on board. A hunting business owner interviewed
by NPR says the ban will effect part of his livelihood and that it`s a disappointment
to penalize hundreds of thousands of gun owners for what
one person did. Today one week after the attack, New Zealand is holding what its prime minister
calls a nationwide reflection for the dead. Up next, the U.S. Justice Department is trying
to determine if any laws were broken in the certification process for certain passenger
planes. The model is Boeing 737 Max series. One of these
planes crashed in Indonesia last October another crashed in Ethiopia earlier this month. Everyone aboard both flights was killed and the 737
Max jets have been grounded world wide. U.S. investigators are looking into everything
from how the plane was certified as safe to how it was
marketed. Meantime, Boeing has developed a software patch and a pilot training program
to address some of the issues with the Max aircraft. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) UNIDENTIFIED MALE: One of the most important
concepts in aviation is the angle of attack. In simple terms, it`s the difference between
the angle of the wings and the direction in which the plane
is flying. Imagine a plane that`s about to land. Its nose is pointed up but the plane
is still moving down towards the runway. That difference there
is the angle of attack, sometimes called alpha. If the angle gets too big, if it exceeds a critical angle of attack a plane stalls. Airliners
have an angle of attack sensor. It`s connected to the instruments and systems inside the
plane. One of these is Boeing`s new MCAS system on
its 737 Max series of airliners. MCAS is an automated anti-stall system. This system is
the focus of the investigation into October`s
Lion air crash and experts say there are similarities between it and the Ethiopian Airlines crash.
If the MCAS system senses high angle of attack, it
will push down the nose to avoid a stall but if the angle of attack sensor is malfunctioning
and gives a faulty reading the system could force the
plane to dive with potentially disastrous consequences. (END VIDEO CLIP) AZUZ: U.S. President Donald Trump has signed
a new executive order. A rule issued by the White House that has the force of law and
its aimed at protecting the freedom of speech on college
campuses. At the signing ceremony yesterday, President Trump said the Federal government
provides U.S. colleges with more than $35 billion in
research funding and if they want to continue receiving that money, they`ll be required
to show that they`re protecting the First Amendment on
their campuses. This follows some incidents at the University
of California at Berkley where some conservative activist speeches had been cancelled and one conservative recruiter was punched in the
face last month. President Trump says American students and values are under siege and that
taxpayer money shouldn`t subsidize colleges that don`t protect
the First Amendment. There are some questions about how the order will be enforced and how
much money could be held back. The American Association of University Professors
and the American Federation of Teachers call the order a dangerous solution to a largely non-existent problem and said it was more
likely to discourage free expression than encourage it. The president suggested that
more government actions were on the way. He called this order
the first in a series of steps to defend student`s rights but details weren`t given on what might come next. 10 Second Trivia. In what professional field
would you deal with Bokeh, ISO, and Hochu (ph)? Photography, ophthalmology, nursing
or welding. All of these terms are related to photography
or photographic equipment. It`s a field who`s average pay is between
$30,000 and $40,000 per year though top photographers can make a lot more than that and it attracts people who are multi-skilled, because adjusting
the camera, working with light and composing good shots require both technical and artistic
ability. CNN sat down with a photographer who snapped
up presidential history. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) ERIC DRAPER, PHOTOGRAPHER: My name is Eric
Draper. I was the Chief White House photographer for President George W. Bush. I took nearly
1 million photos during my time in the White House and
I was able to capture him not only as Commander-in-Chief but as a – – a father, as a dog owner, and
as a husband. What a lot of people don`t know about
the president is he connects with people on such a personal level instantly. I believe
he has a God given talent with connecting people
and – – and I watched it for all eight years from a janitor in the hallway to the King
of Saudi Arabia. He was able to break the ice with people. He was able to instantly read them to start
personal discussion. What was running through my mind on 9/11, I was in complete shock the
entire day. I had the advantage of having a camera in my
hand and a job to do to distract me. Knowing that it was a historic day, knowing that these
pictures will be seen forever but the president was in full
reaction mode. He never stopped to look at the television and he picked up a notepad
and he started writing down his first thoughts for his first
statement to the nation and to the world in response to the attacks. In this photograph, President Bush had just
committed troops to Iraq and you can still see that decision still weighing on his face
as he walked the south lawn alone with the dogs. Out of the
corner of my eye, I see Vice- President Cheney and Don Rumsfeld, the Secretary of Defense
walking out of the Oval Office and the president walked over to greet them and later I found out that they were discussing the start
of the timing of the – – the war in Iraq. On January 20th, 2009, after the swearing
in of President Obama you can see the burden of the presidency
was just lifted. You can just see it on his face immediately.
I spent eight Christmases with the Bush family at Camp David and every Christmas the Bush
family get together for a group photo inside the cabin
and it was always fun. And typically I was the only staffer there and they always made
me feel like family. You look back at these pictures and
they have historical perspective, especially on days like 9/11 and all those major decisions that the president made. They bring people
back to those emotions so they can remember what that time was like. Having an archive
like this is very important. (END VIDEO CLIP) AZUZ: A man in Australia was recently out
running errands. He left his car running to keep the air conditioning on for his dog but
he also left the door open and look who else climbed aboard. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Can I get you to come out
(inaudible) please? (END VIDEO CLIP) AZUZ: At first the answer was no. The two
animals shared the air and the space separated by a seat but eventually the marsupial hopped
out of the vehicle and took his rightful place in a nearby
tree. Quite a bit a challenge to get the animal to “koalaperate” but it didn`t seem to take
a “koala lot” of time. The video helped “koaloberate”
the story after a patient “marsupapeal” the animal migrated to its “arboreal” home and
makes for a “kolaraaful” conclusion to CNN 10. Fridays
are awesome. I`m Carl Azuz. You have a “koality” weekend.

  1. There's no such thing as an assult rifle, if your thinking of the AR-15 the AR stands for armor right there company that made the gun. And assult rifle is just a term that's used by politics and news stations as a term of propaganda.
