    for posting this I appreciate the information and the effort you put into your

CARL AZUZ, CNN STUDENT NEWS ANCHOR: From cars to planes to shuttles, modes of transportation, a big subject in today's show. Let's hit the road. I'm Carl Azuz. CNN Student News starts right now.

First Up: Former VP Cheney

AZUZ: First up, former Vice President Dick Cheney was resting comfortably last night after he was hospitalized with chest pains yesterday. Cheney has a history of heart problems, and his doctors are evaluating the situation. For the latest details on this story, you can always go to CNN.com.

Health Care Debate

AZUZ: Next today, you heard a lot last semester about health care reform. This issue is back in the political spotlight, President Obama releasing a new proposal that he hopes will be a compromise between health care bills passed by the House and the Senate last year. The original Senate plan was estimated to cost around $871 billion over the next 10 years. The House version checked in at more than a trillion dollars. President Obama's new plan is in between: around $950 billion. One big point about it: This new proposal does not include the so-called public option, a government-run health insurance program. That's been a big sticking point in the debate surrounding this controversial issue. Some Republicans have criticized President Obama's new proposal. They want to scrap the current bills that are in Congress and start over on a new piece of law. President Obama is scheduled to meet with Republican leaders on Thursday to talk about health care reform.

Toyota

AZUZ: New troubles for Toyota. This carmaker has been subpoenad -- ordered by a court -- to turn over documents related to sudden acceleration problems with some of its vehicles. The company says it plans to cooperate with any investigations. Meantime, a document has come out in which Toyota employees bragged about saving the company money by negotiating a smaller recall for cars that had some of these problems. This document was only meant to be seen by Toyota staff. The company reacted to the fact that it got out by saying, "Our first priority is the safety of our customers and to conclude otherwise on the basis of one internal presentation is wrong."

Guilty Plea

AZUZ: A guilty plea in a terror plot that authorities say is the most serious one since 9/11. Najibullah Zazi says that in 2008, he planned with others to join the Taliban, to fight with the Taliban against the United States, and that he was recruited to the al Qaeda terrorist group. Zazi was arrested last September as part of a widespread investigation. You can see him here in these court sketches. He pled guilty to three different charges yesterday: conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction, conspiracy to commit murder in a foreign country, and providing material support to a terrorist organization. Zazi faces a life sentence for the first two charges and an additional 15 years in prison for the third.

Word to the Wise

TOMEKA JONES, CNN STUDENT NEWS: A Word to the Wise...

strike (noun) a stopping of work by a group of workers in order to force an employer to meet their demands

source: www.wordcentral.com

Airline Strikes

AZUZ: The biggest strike in German aviation history is on hold, at least for the moment. It involves Lufthansa, a German airline that's one of the largest in the world, and more than 4,000 pilots who walked off the job at midnight on Sunday. Just a few hours later, both sides agreed to suspend the strike to try and work out a deal. It might have lasted less than a day, but this strike still caused hundreds of flights to be cancelled, and it threatened to mess up travel plans on dozens of airlines that are partners with Lufthansa. One of the main issues is pay. The pilots want a salary increase, while the airline's looking to cut costs.

British Airways, facing a similar situation. The airline has been planning to change hours and working conditions for crew members in an effort to save money. But the union that represents those cabin crews isn't happy about it. Yesterday, union members voted to strike, although they didn't set a date for when the strike would happen.

Shuttle Lands

AZUZ: What goes up must come down. And the space shuttle Endeavour is back on the ground after finishing up a two-week trip to the international space station. The shuttle took off at night, and you can see right here it landed in the dark, too, touching down in Florida a little after 10 p.m. Sunday night. The 5.7-million mile mission, which NASA officials described as "flawless," was Endeavour's 10th trip to the space station. The crew dropped off more than 36,000 pounds of hardware while they were there. The space shuttle program is set to end soon. In fact, there are just four more shuttle launches scheduled. The next one, Discovery, set to blast off in April.

New Credit Rules

AZUZ: Yesterday, we told you about new laws that might make it harder to get a credit card. One place where this could really be felt is on college campuses. Students might use credit cards to pay for expenses. They can also rack up debt that follows them long after they're finished with school. Poppy Harlow examines the impact of these new laws on campus.

(BEGIN VIDEO)

PROFESSOR HAROLD TAKOOSHIAN, FORDHAM UNIVERSITY: The availability of credit is both an American dream as well as an American nightmare.

GERRI DETWEILER, PERSONAL FINANCE ADVISOR, CREDIT.COM: The days of easy credit cards for college students are largely over.

POPPY HARLOW, CNNMONEY CORRESPONDENT: New consumer protections regulating credit cards take effect and American college students are taking notice, like these ones attending the STEP panel at Fordham University in New York.

FRANCIS PARSTORELLE, STUDENT, FORDHAM UNIVERSITY: You know, it just was something that was so easy just to swipe it and, you know, I could tell myself that I was actually benefiting myself by building this credit history. You know, it's just one of those things where you don't really think about the risks until it's there in front of you in your statement.

HARLOW: The new rules set limits on how credit card companies can raise rates and fees, a problem that has hit Americans of all ages. But new protections for those 21 and under mean many college students now have to prove that they can pay their balances in full or have a co-signer on the account.

According to Sallie Mae, 84 percent of undergraduates have at least one credit card. And they're carrying record high balances, averaging in excess of $3,000. And with the nation's economic downturn, students are charging more than ever before, even for necessities like textbooks, just to get by.

PARSTORELLE: As soon as I would get it down a little bit, there would be another debt that I had to put on, some kind of medical bill or, you know textbooks. So, it would just always feel like it was a weight that I just couldn't get out from underneath.

HARLOW: That weight can be a burden students carry with them well into adulthood. Until now, credit card companies targeted students with enticing terms.

CHARLIE PUENTE, STUDENT, FORDHAM UNIVERSITY: They were flashing, you know, like zero APR or, like, no payments the first year, you get this and this platinum card.

HARLOW: But those terms later reset much higher. Still, even wary students often feel compelled to open accounts. Why? To start building their credit. But here's the problem: As the debt piles higher, many students end up hurting their credit scores for years beyond graduation.

Seat Belt Safety

AZUZ: There's a new PSA out there, a public service announcement, that's getting a lot of attention. We want to talk to you about it. First, we want you to see it.

(BEGIN VIDEO)

Public Service Announcement video

(END VIDEO)

AZUZ: So, as you can tell, very powerful image. It's called "Embrace Life," and as you might guess, it's gone viral. The PSA's director talked recently about why he created it and the message that he wanted it to deliver.

DANIEL COX, DIRECTOR, "EMBRACE LIFE": The inspiration for "Embrace Life" came from wanting to offer a positive message towards road safety, really. A lot of the campaigns focus on the more graphic and horrific outcomes of accidents, whereas I really wanted to bring people into the conversation. The house represents a safety area, an area of where you're normally surrounded by your loved ones, and the car can be an extension of that. It's not only yourself that's impacted if something unfortunately goes wrong, but also a family; family and friends.

AZUZ: Some numbers for you here. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, using a seat belt reduces the risk of a fatal injury by 45 percent; that's almost half! Seat belts are credited with saving more than 13,000 lives in 2008. And as of last year, seat belt use was up to around 84 percent around the U.S.

Blog Promo

AZUZ: Okay, so you've seen the numbers on this story. You've heard the stories; you've heard people talking about it; you've probably seen some pretty graphic PSAs in the past. Yet some people still don't wear seat belts. Now, we're not going to preach to you about it. We just want you to tell us why you think that is: Why don't folks wear seat belts? Head to our blog at CNNStudentNews.com and share your thoughts!

Before We Go

AZUZ: And finally today, from time to time, we report on some tall tales. This one is the tallest, at least when it comes to dogs. Meet Giant George. He stands 3 feet, 7 inches from paw to shoulder. And that makes this Great Dane the world's tallest dog. It's only by three-quarters of an inch, but come on, are you gonna try to take the title from this colossal canine? Didn't think so. Since George is the new king...

Goodbye

AZUZ: We guess all the other dogs have to bow-wow down. Man, that was ruff! We'll try to do better tomorrow. For CNN Student News, I'm Carl Azuz.

CARL AZUZ, CNN STUDENT NEWS ANCHOR: Four men sat down at a counter and helped change the country. The anniversary of that momentous occasion coming up in this edition of CNN Student News!

First Up: 2011 Budget

AZUZ: First up, President Obama lays out his recommendations for next year's federal budget. This is kind of like something that you might -- or your family might -- make. It looks at how much is being spent versus how much is being earned and saved. Except, as you might expect, the government's budget is a lot bigger. $3.8 trillion: That's the price tag on the president's proposal.

Here's some of what's included: $3 billion to help pay for education programs. More than $6 billion set aside for green technologies; things that help the environment. And more than $700 million to install new body scanners at airports. The budget would also cancel some tax cuts for families that earn more than $250,000 a year, so their taxes would likely increase. And money for a NASA program aimed at sending man back to the moon, that would be canceled, too. An important point to keep in mind, though: All of these are just suggestions. Congress is the one who actually approves the budget. Dana Bash gives us an inside look at that process.

(BEGIN VIDEO)

DANA BASH, CNN SENIOR CONGRESSIONAL CORRESPONDENT: This is where the president's budget director will come for his first hearing, and he'll face lawmakers and try to discuss and explain all of what is in here and what the president's priorities are.

But I have something pretty cool for you. We take you behind the scenes. We are going to take you behind the curtain, literally. Come with me, just going to put this down. Come with me and I'll show you what's going on here in the House Budget Committee room.

We have Democratic staff and the chairman himself, the House Budget chairman, going through, as you said, line by line. They just received the budget. They are going through it line by line to see exactly what's in it. This is what you all do and what they do every year when they get the president's budget, no matter who the president is.

Now I want to come over and actually talk to the chairman, Mr. Spratt.

Mr. Spratt...

REP. JOHN SPRATT, (D) SOUTH CAROLINA: Good morning.

BASH: Good morning.

SPRATT: I am not getting up.

BASH: No, please. Please have a seat. You have a lot of work to do here.

SPRATT: We do.

BASH: Now, I was trying to explain this to our viewers earlier that, obviously, this is the president's budget, it's his priorities. But it's you all in Congress who have the power of the purse. So, what is your job here?

SPRATT: Since 1921, since 1921, the president has the power, formal power, to propose a budget to Congress. But from the beginning of the Republic, the Congress has held the purse strings. We were the ones who really rode and provide the budget based upon what the president requested.

BASH: So, just because the president is asking for specific things in here, increases in education spending or maybe more difficult things like a spending freeze, doesn't mean he's necessarily going to get it.

SPRATT: We pass judgment on all of the president's proposals.

Toyota

AZUZ: "We know what's causing the problem and we know what we have to do to fix it." The words of Toyota's U.S. president talking about malfunctioning gas pedals that affected millions of vehicles. The company says new parts, already being shipped to dealers. Toyota plans to cover all repair costs. The company's president went on YouTube to offer his apologies to customers.

JIM LENTZ, PRESIDENT & COO, TOYOTA USA: I want to sincerely apologize to Toyota owners. I know that our recalls have caused many of you concern, and for that, I am truly sorry. I want you to know that all 172,000 Toyota and dealership employees across North America will work hard to fix your vehicle properly and regain your trust.

Is this Legit?

TOMEKA JONES, CNN STUDENT NEWS: Is this legit? Vancouver is one of Canada's 10 provinces. Not legit! Vancouver is a city. It's located in the Canadian province of British Columbia.

Vancouver Security

AZUZ: And Vancouver's about to be the center of the sporting world. It is hosting this year's Winter Olympics, which begin in less than two weeks. In order to keep the games safe, Canada has launched the largest security operation in the country's history on land, on the sea, and in the air. Jeanne Meserve reports on some of what's involved in all that.

(BEGIN VIDEO)

JEANNE MESERVE, CNN HOMELAND SECURITY CORRESPONDENT: A Canadian Navy diver plunges into frigid water off Vancouver, honing his underwater bomb detection skills, a small part of a massive effort to keep the Olympics safe.

ASST. COMMISSIONER BUD MERCER, ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE: We've prepared for the worst case scenarios, which includes terrorism, and we'll be able to respond to the worst case scenarios.

MESERVE: The murder of 11 Israeli coaches and athletes by Palestinian militants at the 1972 Munich Games has hung over every Olympics since. The threat of international terrorism in Vancouver is currently assessed as low. The bigger concern: domestic political protests. The Olympic torch relay has been disrupted several times by demonstrators. At critical locations in Vancouver, some roads are already closed. Police presence is heavy and 900 surveillance cameras stud security fencing.

You see the cameras everywhere, but officials say there will be other technology to detect chemical, biological and radiological threats.

Massive inflatable barriers keep boat traffic away from cruise ships that will house some of the 15,000 security personnel. Military, police and Coast Guard all patrol to keep the city safe and commerce moving in Canada's largest port.

Shoutout

MATT CHERRY, CNN STUDENT NEWS: Today's Shoutout goes out to Mr. O'Brien's senior government classes at Warrenton High School in Warrenton, Oregon! What military conflict is known as "the war to end all wars"? Is it: A) Civil War, B) World War I, C) World War II or D) Korean War? You've got three seconds -- GO! World War I is referred to as "the war to end all wars." It's also known as the Great War. That's your answer and that's your Shoutout!

WWI Veteran

AZUZ: The last surviving American who served in that war celebrated his 109th birthday yesterday. More than a dozen friends and family gathered in West Virginia to wish former Corporal Frank Buckles a happy birthday. He said he's made it to 109 thanks to "the desire to live, and a purpose for living," and he talked about what he believes that purpose is.

FMR. CPL. FRANK BUCKLES, LAST SURVIVING U.S. VETERAN OF WORLD WAR I: I realize that my position is a representative of the veterans of World War I.

AZUZ: That role is part of why Buckles has been urging lawmakers to recognize and renovate a World War I memorial in Washington, D.C. Last December, he went in front of Congress and asked for the memorial to be officially designated as a national monument.

Greensboro Anniversary

AZUZ: Well, this week also marks the 50th anniversary of a historic moment in the U.S. civil rights movement. It happened when four college students sat down at a lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina. In 1960, the Woolworth's counter was for whites only, and these four men were African-American. They were refused service, but they sat their ground and helped launch a wave of sit-ins across the southern U.S. The Greensboro Four, as they came to be known, wanted to bring attention to the issue of racism. Recently, one of the group, Joseph McNeil, talked about the experience.

MAJ. GEN. JOSEPH MCNEIL (RET.), PARTICIPATED IN THE 1960 WOOLWORTH'S SIT-IN: We felt very strongly about what we were doing, and we were serious. To defy a law like segregation and a habit meant that we had to have very strong convictions. So, we were hopeful that we would be able to make others aware of the evils of segregation. And while we are hopeful that others would follow us, we weren't exactly sure that would happen.

AZUZ: In the half-century since that Woolworth's sit-in, the lunch counter and stools have never been moved. Now, they're part of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum. The three surviving members of the Greensboro Four were all scheduled to attend yesterday's opening ceremony. The museum's goal: "to inspire people to step forward in the struggle for human freedom." And its chairman says it's a way for future generations to appreciate the past.

MELVIN "SKIP" ALSTON, CHMN. INTL. CIVIL RIGHTS CENTER: This is a time when we wanted students, young people like my son here -- that's 18 years old now, he was only 2 years old when we started this museum. And we wanted to make sure that his generation and generations yet unborn would be able to appreciate what these four young men did 50 years ago. So, 50 years from now, they will be able to come to this museum and be able to see the lunch counter and appreciate what happened on that day so that they will be able to have the privileges they have today.

Web Promo

AZUZ: For classroom materials and more information about the Greensboro Four, go here! You're looking at our Web site, CNNStudentNews.com, and if you scroll down to the middle of the front page, you see right there in the Spotlight section, there will be links to the information I just told you about, as well as Black History Month questions and activities. All free, all yours and all at CNNStudentNews.com.

Before We Go

AZUZ: Before we go, today is Groundhog Day, but one Washington city didn't want to wait for Punxsutawney's prediction. So it turned to Snohomish Slew! That's the frog. And he's the star of Snohomish's annual GroundFrog Day. Real original name. No shadows here. The frognosticator looks up at the sky and then shares his prediction with his handlers. Apparently, they speak frog. This year, the frog's forecast an early end to winter.

Goodbye

AZUZ: But he might just be pulling our leg. It's one ribbiting story, but if it doesn't put a hop in your step, we will be back with more tomorrow on CNN Student News. See you then!
