CNN Student News September 8, 2015


This is CNN STUDENT NEWS. I`m Carl Azuz. Welcome
to all of our viewers worldwide. And if your school year is just getting started, we hope
it`s going well for you so far. We`re back from the Labor Day holiday. It`s
often viewed as an unofficial start to the presidential campaign season and the candidates
were out in force over the weekend. Many are holding meetings, attending events,
hosting fundraisers and they`re concentrating on Iowa and New Hampshire. Those are the two
states where the first caucuses and primaries will be held early next year. They`ll help
determine who each party`s nominee will be in next November`s presidential election. Five people are officially seeking the Democratic
Party`s nomination. Seventeen people are officially seeking the Republican Party`s nomination. Across the Atlantic, Europe is dealing with
its most severe migration crisis since World War II. Hundreds of thousands are crossing
borders. Most of them are from Afghanistan, Syria,
and Iraq. Some are migrants looking for a better life in Europe. Many are refugees fleeing
war-torn countries or the ISIS terrorist group. And some European officials are concerned
that terrorists themselves might cross into the Europe with the asylum seekers. Austria and Germany say they can`t keep up
with the influx of people. They want other countries to help more. France and Britain
say they will. They`re planning to accept tens of thousands.
Hungary has built a fence to prevent people from entering from neighboring Syria. Their journey is treacherous. It involves
crossing nations on foot, walking dozens of miles. It involves crossing the Mediterranean
on overloaded unstable votes. Under the spotlight of a Turkish coast guard
cutter — You see — you see the refugees? The silhouettes of more than 20 people stranded
in a rubber boat. They are desperate, frightened, but tonight
luckily saved by volunteers from the Bodrum Sea Rescue Association, who work alongside
the Turkish coast guard. Not all together. Wait. Wait. Among the passengers rescued, five little
children. Just four days after the world was shocked by photographs of a Syrian refugee
toddler who drown at sea. These people have embarked on the exact same perilous journey. They set off from the Turkish resort peninsula
of Bodrum in hope of reaching the Greek island of Kos. Instead of drifting at sea with a
failed engine, these people will be brought back safely to Turkey. The beaches below Bodrum`s villas and posh
resorts, an unlikely launching point for tens of thousands of refugees and migrants willing
to risk everything to reach Europe. Under the light of the crescent moon, we witness
another attempt at a crossing. It`s after 2:00 a.m. and we`ve encountered
another little rubber dinghy loaded with people. They`re actually paddling in the direction
of Greece. It`s incredibly overloaded, this little boat. It`s an accident waiting to happen. To make matters worse, some wear heavy backpacks
over their life jackets. The coast guard is coming. Before possible disaster strikes, the coast
guard comes to the rescue. Tonight, they fail to reach Greece but they will live another
day. See if you can ID me. I`m an organic compound that`s found in several
of the foods we ate. I`m naturally better in flavor and well known for stimulating the
central nervous system. I`m caffeine, a substance with several benefits
and drawbacks. A couple of things you might not know about
caffeine. One, people can get physically dependent on it. It`s not considered as addictive as
say illegal street drugs or alcohol, but people who are used to caffeine and suddenly stop
drinking it can get headaches. They can become anxious or depress. They can have a hard time
concentrating. Another thing about caffeine is that the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration has a new warning out about it. The alert focuses on pure powdered
caffeine, something so potent that small amounts can cause an accidental overdose. The FDA
says it`s aware of at least two people who have died from taking it. Caffeine is everywhere — in coffee, iced
tea, sodas, even in some medications. It`s an stimulant that can make you feel more alert
and give you that boost of energy. It increases blood flow to the muscles, opens
up your lungs. It gives increased performance. But when you consume too much of it, caffeine
can cause major health problems. On average, most people can handle about 300 to 400 milligramsof
caffeine per day. That`s about what`s in three to four six ounce cups of coffee. What`s concerning these days is more and more
products contain larger amounts of caffeine. Energy drinks, supplements, even powdered
caffeine contains way more of the substance than any cup of coffee. For example, the FDA
warns one teaspoon of powdered caffeine is equivalent to 25 cups of coffee. When they take what they think is a dose,
it`s 10, 15, 20 times what they`re expected. Consuming more than 1,000 milligrams of caffeine
can lead to some serious side effects like an irregular heartbeat, nausea, tremors, insomnia,
and in some rare situations, death. So, beware of what you`re drinking. Best way
to avoid caffeine overdose is to check the ingredients just to see how much caffeine
you`re taking in. “Roll Call” requests are coming in from all
over the world at CNNStudentNews.com. Keep them coming. L`Anse Creuse Middle School Central made today`s
roll. It`s in Harrison Township, Michigan, the home of the Lancers. In North Carolina, we`ve got the Raiders watching
today. Hello to our friends at Southern Vance High School. And in Hsinchu, Taiwan, thank you for watching
at the Pacific American School. It`s great to see you. Dr. David Sabgir is today`s study in character.
While some physicians might keep extended hours or email their patients or even make
house calls, Dr. Sabgir joins his for a walk. It helps them prevent heart disease, the number
one killer in America. And his nonprofit Walk with the Doc now has
more than 160 chapters around the U.S., with doctors and patients getting fit. I knew something had to change on my end to
stay healthy. I would go anywhere between nine to 12 hours, all sitting at a desk. You
may be working a lot, but you`re at the desk sitting. How far do you think you could walk before
you had to stop? The number one problem I see in my patients
faces as cardiologist is a sedentary lifestyle. I was frustrated at my ineffectiveness to
create change in my patients. Hello. How are you? I`m fine. So, I said how about if my family goes to
the park, would you be interested in joining us. So see you tomorrow at the walk? Yes. The response was phenomenal. I wanted to talk about how easy taking care
of ourselves can be. There`s no better way that you can show a
patient that you care about them than by going the extra mile with them. There`s no wait
in the office. There`s no fear of bad news. It`s just the
patient and the physician talking about whatever the patient wants to talk about. In the beginning I used to walk a mile or
two. By the end of the year, I`ve completed a full marathon. I`m thinking of signing up for my second marathon. Dr. Sabgir taught me you can achieve things
that are really big, but it all starts with small steps. How many miles do you have in already? Two-point-seven. Eighty percent of cardiac disease is preventable
if we just go for a walk. If people just take that first step, they will never look back. High-five. Before we go, two words: sky pool. Well, actually,
it`s one word and it describes one awesome swimming hall or suspended pool between two
apartment buildings in London. When it`s complete in three years, it will
be 10 stories above the ground, 90 feet long, made out of see-through acrylic that`s eight
inches thick, but it`s only four feet deep, so there won`t be any sky diving. Get it? Of course, other apartments could build something
like this, they just have to pool their resources. Given critics might wonder water, they`re
thinking building this way above ground pool, but it shows that when it comes to aquatic
construction, the sky is not the limit. If you`re already on Instagram, you might
like the “Roll Call” tip we posted last night. Instagram.com/CNNStudentNews.
