Hi, I'm Carl Azuz. Friday is awesome1 on CNN student news. Ten minutes of commercial-free headlines, our free online news quiz and of course, your weekend. You can't beat that. Let's get this started!

Congress has a new investigation2 going on. Committee is trying to figure out whether the Fort Hood3 Army shootings could have been prevented. Two of the reasons why. One, there is a two-year-old memo4 that is getting a lot of attention. It reportedly says that Maldaf Hason, the man accused of the shootings, had bad judgment5 and wasn't very professional in his work as an army psychiatrist6. Two, some of the doctors who worked with Hasan say he was known for having extreme religious views. So congress's investigation is looking into whether army officials paid enough attention to these reports. This isn't the only investigation into the Ford7 Hood shootings.


"The Department of Defense8 will conduct a separate review to ensure the safety and health of DOD employees and their families. We do not enter this process with any preconceived notions. However, it is prudent9 to determine immediately, whether there are internal weaknesses or procedural shortcomings in the department that could make us vulnerable in the future."


This is your captain, we are gonna be delayed. Not something you want to hear on the plane. Interesting reason for yesterday's delays though. A computer glitch10. A system in Atlantic, Georgia and Salt Lake City, Utah went down for five hours yesterday morning. It was unable to automatically set up flight plans for planes, so air traffic controllers had to do it themselves which takes longer. Not a safety problem according to the Federal Aviation Administration, but a serious efficiency problem that led to delays and cancelations across the country.


College students locking arms, sitting down and staying put at UCLA couldn't stop at hiking their tuition. That's the fee you pay to go to college and California is raising that 32%, very significant. The state's also cutting down on what it spends, all because its budget. It is just running out of money. Officials say they will increase the amount of financial aid they gave to some low and mid-income students though. Darmar Gutierrie was on the scene of the protest.

"I'm Maritza. I'm currently a 4th year English major. I'm already working two jobs so that I would have to find some other jobs, probably on the weekend. "

"No cuts, no fees! Education should be free!"

"I'm here protesting the increased fees for UC tuition. They want to raise it by 32% for this coming winter. And then an extra 32% for the next year.  And that's just something me and my family really can't afford to pay."
