They were with former president George W.Bush on one of the most faithful mornings in US history. We are the today. You are gonna find out this Monday edition of CNN Student News. I'm Carol Lezus, let's go.
First up, the Mississippi river is going up and experts think it could come close to a record. National Weather Service predicts that rivers, waters will quest, reach their highest point, just after midnight on Tuesday. Officials predict a water level of 48 feet, that's just short of the record set back in 1937. Of course the problem with the river being so high is that all that water has to go somewhere. Right now, its flooding parts of several states in the midwest and southeast. You see them on this map, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. This is what things look like in parts of Tennessee over the weekend. Hundreds of people have been told to leave their homes, especially if they live in low-lying areas. One mayor said he is asking residents to be calm and helpful. Is his community prepared for a could-be large scale disaster?
The unemployment rate looks at the number of people who don't have a job, who are actively1 looking for one. That's why some economists2 say it can actually be a good thing when the unemployment rate goes up, like it did last month from 8.8% to 9%. Their argument is if the rate goes up, it means unemployed3 people who worry looking for a job feel more encouraged they might find one, so they start looking. Other economists disagree. They point the fact that the percentage of working Americans, the number of people who are already in the work force went down last month. That might indicate that the unemployment rate went up because people lost their jobs.
A new ship has a new name, the USS Michael Murphy. It's a destroyer, a type of ship in the US Navy, and it's named in honour of L. Michael Murphy, a navy sail who received the medal of honour for his heroic actions during the war in Afghanistan. The ship was * by L Murphy's mother on Saturday. It would have been Michael Murphy's 35th birthday. He was killed in 2005 when his team was ambushed4 by Taliban fighters. L Murphy sacrificed his own life to call for help for his teammates. During the ceremony on Saturday, his father said that the ship embodies5 the spirits of Michael and his teammates.
The sails, the lead navy special operations group that L Murphy was part of carried out the raid that killed Osama bin6 Laden7 in Pakistan just over a week ago. Bin Laden, you remember, was the man behind the 9-11 terrorist attacks that led to the war in Afghanistan. His death brought back memories for some students in series sort of Florida. M. S. explains the connection.
