 Fridays are awesome1 and so are the Noels at Seminole High School in Florida,because one of you got our social media question of the week correct.All right.I am Carl Azuz.Let's get to the day's headlines.

 
Peaceful purposes or weapons?That is the constant debate over Iran's controversial nuclear program.It's been a source of tension between the middle eastern nation and other countries and now Iran says it's willing to restart talks about the program.At the meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency yesterday,an Iranian official said,it's the start of a new chapter for his country and the IAEA.He also said Iran will "never suspend its nuclear activities".The IAEA has been worried that Iran is trying to clean up signs of that nuclear activity.Some western officials say these satellite photos might show that clean up at work.Iran called any suspension about this particular facility ridiculous. 
 
See if you can ID me?I am a famous star,who wants nothing to do with the night life.I am a major provider of the light and heart.Not to be self-centered,but the whole world does revolve2 around me.I am the sun and scientists estimate I have been around for millions of years.
 
All things are little stormy upon the sun right now.There isn't any rain or thunder there.To solar storm,that involves geomagnetic particles and the sun doesn't always keep those to itself.There were two solar flares3 earlier this weeks and they sent those geomagnetic particles toward earth.It takes light about eight minutes to travel the 92 million miles from the sun to the earth.The material from these flares got here about 23 hours, so it was moving at four million miles per hour.Those solar storms can sometimes cause problems for power grids4 here for GPS.Scientists say that doesn't seem to be happening right now.
 
Most Americans will be seeing more of the sun and maybe a little less sleep.Daylight saving time starts this Sunday,when we move our clocks ahead one hour will move them back again one hour on November 4th.The idea is to reduce the amount of electricity that's used by extending daylight hours.Ben Franklin came up with daylight saving time in the seventeen hundreds.It was used for the first time in Great Britain during World War One.US states don't have to take part in daylight saving,some of they don't,but around seventy countries,do move clocks forwards in the spring.
 
Japan won't be moving its clocks ahead on March 11th,but the nation will be marking a tragic5 milestone6.It will be one year since the massive earthquake hit the island nation and triggered tsunami7,a giant ocean wave.Mark Biello was part of CNN crew that went to Japan to cover this disaster.One year later,he looked back on his experience.
 
My name is Mark Biello.I am a senior photo journalist.Now I have been working here at CNN for 28 years.When we got to this disaster,it was very challenging to cover,because we didn't have any kind of office or bureau to work out of.We worked out of the back of a van.We had a generator,it was bitter cold at times.The infrastructure8 was completely shot and we had many challenges,trying to feed and do live shots with our systems and do coverage9 of these different villages that were just destroyed.
 
And the first town we traveled to was Minamisanriku.When we first arrived,the level of destruction was incredible,basically a small fishing village that was completely destroyed.It was heart-breaking to think that how many people could be buried under this rubble10.And there was always threat of aftershocks,there were aftershocks that happened they rocked the van,that would,you could feel under feet or while we were editing or broadcasting their live shots.There were some other tsunami warnings in the days after,so the sirens would go off.And the Japanese defense11 forces and the Japanese fire and rescues,they were very much on edge,very stressed,you know they were trying to keep us safe too.So they would come down,you know,just screaming and yelling,tsunami,tsunami,and so we had to listen and get to higher ground.
 
Another town that we were sent to was,Hachinohe.What was amazing about what happened with tsunami there,the tsunami wave actually picked up giant freighters and they were mostly fishing trawlers,and tossed them on their side, like little toy boats.And also picked some of the ships up and took them into the city.It was a very,it's a rare scene.
 
It's been a year since the tsunami,I think about Japan constantly.I think about the people,how they are getting by.At some point,it will be great to go back and cover this again to see the rebuilding process.
