News to Grow On
Rank #1: 01.17.2020.
Good morning… welcome to KidNuz. I’m Tori. It’s Friday Jan 17, 2020. And we begin with.. The new manager of the Mets getting the boot in record setting time. Carlos Beltran signed on with New York just last November, but he’s already out of job for getting caught up in what is arguably the biggest cheating scandal in baseball history. Mr. Beltran used to play for the Astros – the team that used video equipment to steal signs from opposing catchers – and he’s now the third manager to lose his job in the fallout. Houston fired AJ Hinch after Major League Baseball released its findings, and a day later the Boston Red Sox parted with Alex Cora after he, too, admitted to wrongdoing while with the Astros. For the first time, new techniques have allowed scientists to identify the oldest solid material ever found on Earth. The stardust, that came from a meteorite, is between five and seven billion years old. This meteorite landed in Australia when it fell to Earth 50 years ago. It’s now being kept at the Field Museum in Chicago. The museum’s expert on meteorites says they examined tiny grains in the stardust which are essentially time capsules of the period before our solar system’s sun was born. To separate the ancient grains from the newer ones, the scientists crushed fragments of the meteorite into a powder.. then dissolved it in acid, leaving only the pre-solar particles intact. One expert described it as burning down a haystack to find the needle. Britain’s Prince Harry was seen in public yesterday, for the first time since announcing a big change for his family.. and for what could be his final official appearance as a royal. The Duke of Sussex hosted what is normally a rather ordinary rugby demonstration by school children at Buckingham Palace. He joked with the young players that they mustn’t ruin the grass or else he’d get in trouble. There was speculation that Prince Harry was in big trouble with his grandmother Queen Elizabeth after announcing that he and his wife Meghan Markle would step back from their senior royal duties and live part time in Canada. But after a big family summit at the palace on Monday the Queen issued a statement saying there would be a period of transition, to work out details allowing Harry and Meghan to begin a new life as an independent family. There’s a chance you might someday end up going to college at the same time as your grandparents. That’s because a growing number of senior citizens are returning to university through programs called University Based Retirement Communities. These students, in their 60’s, 70’s , 80’s and beyond not only live near the campus, but they also take classes there, use the school’s library and gym, attend artistic performances and cheer in the stands. All this activity not only stimulates older folks intellectually but also socially, which many say helps keep them feeling young. The arrangements don’t come cheap but for many of the participants, they feel it’s a wonderful way to spend their golden years. Jeopardy’s greatest player of all time, Ken Jennings may be an expert in many categories.. but he was wrong about one thing.. himself. Jennings admitted he didn’t think he’d win the recent big quiz show contest.. in fact he kept turning the TV show down when they asked him to participate. Jennings said it’d been 15 years since he set a 74-game win streak. But Jennings ended up with the tournament of champions trophy this week, winning 3 out of 4 matches. He beat out 2 previous big-time winners, James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter for the 1-million-dollar prize and bragging rights as Jeopardy’s GOAT. That’s it for KidNuz. Now, the KidNuz quiz: 1) How old is the oldest solid material found on Earth? Between five and seven billion years old. 2) Who is the greatest Jeopardy player of all time? Ken Jennings 3) Where will Prince Harry and his wife spend part of their time as an independent family? In Canada. 4) Who’s the latest to lose his job over the Astro’s sign stealing scandal? New Mets manager Carlos Beltran, who used to play with Houston. In one for the road…. riders on the number 7 train in New York City are getting a little bonus for the next week. The voice making the announcements on the subway will be none other than actress.. and New York City native.. Awkwafina whose real name is Nora Lum. Some of the pre-recorded messages contain a few humorous jabs at city life, like.. “You are now entering Manhattan.. hope you brought money!” Comedy Central is paying for the spots as a promotion for the stars upcoming show, called “Awkwafina is Nora from Queens.” Before we go.. our KidNuz birthday shout outs for today go to: Ian in Macungie, Pennsylvania, Adelyn in Grants Pass, Oregon and and Laura in Oakland, CA . This weekend, we celebrate Lily in Gilbert Arizona James in Menlo Park, California and Humza in Irvine, California. Plus we want to give a big wave to Mrs. Hiscock’s 6th grade class at Brookside Intermediate in Philips, NL Canada Have a great weekend and we hope you tune in again for more KidNuz, Monday morning.

Rank #2: 01.16.2020.
Good morning and welcome to KidNuz. I’m Tori. Today is Thursday, January 16th, 2020 and we begin with…. A somber political ceremony ushering in the start of only the third Presidential Impeachment trial in U.S. history. At 9am Eastern this morning, the seven House Representatives chosen to present the case against Mr. Trump will physically walk the two articles into the Senate… and read the charges out loud. All 100 lawmakers will then be sworn in to serve as the jury, and Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will take the oath as judge. The trial itself will begin next Tuesday and last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. But when all is said and done, it is highly unlikely that President Trump will be removed from office. Doing so would require a two-thirds vote and many Senate Republicans have already said they do not believe the President’s actions on a phone call with the President of Ukraine rose to that level. If you like snakes, really really big snakes, head to Florida. The state is in the middle of its annual 10-day python wrangling contest. Hundreds of people, some pros and some first-timers, have signed up to help rid the Everglades of a reptile that just doesn’t belong there. The problem started in the 1980’s when pet stores imported baby pythons from Southeast Asia. People bought them when they were little and cute – then dumped them when the snakes grew, in some cases, to 20 feet long and 200 pounds each. Now, there are hundreds of thousands of the massive reptiles slithering around south Florida. Conservationists say if nothing is done, the pythons will overrun the state’s native plant and animal life. Smoke from the bushfires burning in Australia will circle the planet —at least once. According to meteorologists, fire-induced thunderstorms allowed the soot and ash to reach the Earth’s stratosphere 10 miles up. Once there, the smoke was able to move further and faster than normal. By the end of December, it was already halfway around the globe. Soon, it will travel the other half and return back to Australia. NASA is monitoring the crisis from the International Space Station. This week, Astronaut Christina Koch looked down at the fires and posted: “Australia, our hearts and thoughts are with you.” A little bit of false advertising led to a long night for a gym rat in Utah. Dan Hill was swimming laps just after midnight at his local 24-Hour Fitness when, unbeknownst to him, the staff packed up, locked up, and left. Dan was unaware the gym, despite its name, closed between midnight and 4am, and the workers were apparently unaware that anyone was still inside. Unable to get out without triggering alarms, and baffled by his sudden aloneness, Dan did what everybody does now— and started posting on Facebook; two hours later, help finally arrived. Dan took it all in stride. “Everyone makes mistakes, he posted, “this was just funny enough to be interesting. In health news, scientific proof that doing good is more than its own reward. According to a new study, the act of being kind to others actually translates to immediate pain relief for the giver. Researchers scanned the brain waves of 280 people and found that doing something nice for someone else instantly impacted the region that registers hurt. In one experiment, people who donated blood-for-a-cause experienced less pain from the stick than those who did it as part of a routine medical test… even though a larger needle was used for the do-gooders. Another experiment found that people given shocks to their hands felt less discomfort if they had first given money to the needy. The results of the study were so clear, the authors are calling for good deeds to be paired with other pain remedies. And that’s it for KidNuz. Now our KidNuz Quiz: When will the Impeachment Trial in the Senate begin? Next Tuesday. What are hunters hoping to catch in Florida? Pythons, some of which can reach 20 feet in length.. and weigh 200 pounds. How far is smoke from the Australia brushfires expected to travel? All the way around the globe. According to a new study, what can provide immediate pain relief? Doing something kind for others. In one for the road: He could’ve followed his father onto the stage and made millions. Instead, the youngest son of rocker Bruce Springsteen is following the beat of his own drum. Earlier this week, 25-year-old Sam Springsteen signed on as a firefighter with the Jersey City, New Jersey Fire Department. The boss and his wife Patti had front row seats for the swearing in but didn’t want the spotlight. “This is my son’s day,” he said, “I’m just excited to be here.” Sam’s older brother Evan dabbles in music. Sister Jessica is an equestrian champion and may be headed to the Olympics. Our birthday shout-outs today go to Emerson in Honolulu and Darren in Albuquerque. And a big hello to Mrs. Scharwath’s Special Education Class at Dutchtown High in Geismar, Louisiana. Thanks for listening and we’ll see you back here for more KidNuz tomorrow morning!
