tv Teen Kids News FOX March 5, 2017 1:00pm-1:30pm EST
exciting rock music) - you're watching teen kids news. i'm livia, here's this week's top story. (exciting yet chill music) this report is brought to you by the national road safety foundation. about an hour drive west of minneapolis is litchfield, minnesota. - [taylar] litchfield is a really small town. - [mary] it's shockingly small. (giggles) - [taylar] we've a lot of farming around our town. and there's a dairy plant, first district, that is a big part of our town. - [mary] there's not a lot, but, you know, you find things to do. going to sporting events, the adventures with your friends driving around. it's just somewhere where everyone knows your name and everyone's really friendly.
- [livia] it's also where this year's winners of the safe rides saves lives contest live and go to school. - [david] hello, i'm david. - taylor. - hi taylor. and? - grace. - grace. - mary. - hi mary. nice to meet the three of you. - [livia] the homemade video taylar, grace, and mary produced on distracted driving took first place. as part of their prize, a professional video crew will help them turn their idea into a psa, a public service announcement, that will air on national tv. - we have some storyboards that we've taken from your already beautifully done video that we've seen. and we use these so we can structure what we're going to be shooing today. a lot of this to make sure that we don't miss a shot. a lot of it is just to make sure we have continuity and that we all understand what we're doing, 'cause we'll wanna be on the same page. - so it's about kelsey, and her two friends. - and her friends are at school, at their lockers, and they're talking about going to a party that night. - they're all excited for this party. - and really they invite more friends to come with them.
so we, you know, we have a big car, but we don't have quite enough seat belts. - kelsey does not use a seatbelt. - so, you know, we're driving, listening to music, having a good time and-- - kelsey pulls out her phone and shows it to her friend. - and distracts the driver. and we drift into oncoming traffic and get hit in a crash. - kelsey ends up dying. - [livia] but the teens added a twist. - [kelsey voiceover] dear mom and dad, i'm sorry for everything. - [livia] throughout the psa, we see shots of kelsey writing a letter. - the letter in the end is kind of kelsey writing from heaven. - and she's apologizing to her parents and everyone for all the pain that she's caused. - that she should've worn her seatbelt and she's really sorry. - and that's where we kind of ended it. we go to a black screen and, you know, don't let this happen to you. - [livia] a recent tragedy at their school was part of the inspiration for the psa. - so last year, we had a student get in a one car crash.
- he was on his way to work, and went off the side of the road, and ended up hitting a tree. - and he passed away. and he, he would've been a senior this year. he was a really great person. and it really impacted the community. - impact on the community was very much part of the message the girls wanted to get across in their psa. we'll show you how it turned out, when teen kids news continues. we'll be right back. - action! (soft but exciting and energetic music) - [announcer] closed captioning is brought to you by.
(fun and exciting rock music) - [katie] sophomores grace, mary, and taylar submitted the winning entry in this year's safe rides saves lives contest. the contest is sponsored by the national road safety foundation in partnership with fccla. that stands for family, career, and community leaders of america. it's an organization that gives students the opportunity to use the skills they learn in family and consumer science classes to explore future careers. - and action! - (giggles) i'm starving. - well i think they learned an amazing amount. i think they learned how a psa is made and how much work it is for a production for a 55 second slot. we spent the entire day doing it. - cut. it's good. that was nice. - it was different. i (laughs) i mean it's hard 'cause i'm not a,
none of us are great actors. and so it was weird to have to come into it and act. like it was different for us. - ok, so that was great the way you turned, about my house at 7. you looked at the camera. yeah. - it was fun. it was really fun. it's a little weird when you have four different cameras on you. you have our teacher taking pictures and a camera recording another camera. (girls giggle) - here we go, standing by. rolling? and action! - alright, let's go! - let's go! come on! - it takes a lot lo0ger than i thought. every scene that you do there's so many more takes that it just takes a lot longer and it's very precise. with everything they do. so they try an make everything as perfect as they can. - do you want to try another exposure sean or were you happy with that exposure? - [sean] i was happy but i'll do it again. - do it one more time then we'll just do a tight shot in case the tilt down doesn't work. - i think when we have messages from kids to other kids, i think it means a lot more to them.
i think it was very emotional for them in the making of it and people that see it. so people, all people need to be reminded of distracted driving. so, it was a good, good day. - and cut! - [girls] and that's a wrap! (giggles) - before we show you the finished psa, here's how you can find out how to enter next year's contest. go to the contest tab at teenlane.org. and to learn more about what fccla does, check out fcclainc.org. for teen kids news, i'm katie. and now the world television premiere of "a letter we hope never gets written". - [kelsey voiceover] dear mom and dad, i'm sorry for everything. we had been looking forward to the party all day. it was all we could talk about. you always told me not to be in a car with a distracted driver. but i never thought i would be the distraction. we thought it was a good idea to carpool, but there were too many of us and not enough seat belts. we were all just having a good time and listening to music.
she took her e she wa what all the noise and exci the distractions we were causing ruined so many lives. i realized the crash would affect you. but didn't think it would affect so many in the community. everyone lost someone that day, a friend, a sister, a child. i want you to know that i never meant for any of it to happen. please. share our story. i don't want anyone to have to go through what you guys did. i'm so sorry. i love you. kelsey. - next on teen kids news, i'll tell you why you should start now to make next summer meaningful. my make the grade report is coming up. - when applying to college, students are often asked how they spent their summers during high school. if you can say that you had a job, that certainly shows maturity and responsibility.
but summer jobs may be hard to find. there is another way to get work experience. and while it doesn't come with a paycheck, the experience can be priceless. i'm talking about internships. these are programs designed to give students a taste of different work environments. government agencies, museums, tv and radio stations, even internet companies often have internship programs. but they fill up early. so don't wait. be proactive. if you're interested in government, contact the local offices of elected representatives. love the arts? go to your museum and ask for the volunteer office. if you're interested in medicine, ask your doctor if he or she knows of any opportunities at the local hospital. an internship not only shows colleges you are interested in a career, it shows you know how to go after it! with make the grade, i'm christin. - fifty us states. fifty states flags, each one with its own unique history. here's eric with flag facts.
(energetic drum music) - when the american colonies declared their independence from england, one led the way with a rousing motto. - the year was 1774, two years before the declaration of independence and new hampshire declared their own independence from great britain. their motto at the time was "live free or die" and it's still the state motto today. - [eric] another revolutionary first for new hampshire is pictured here on the state flag. in 1776, the warship raleigh was the first to fly the new american flag. new hampshire is home to many other firsts. the first potato was grown here. america's first astronaut in space, alan shepard, was born here. as was the first free public library. - new hampshire is known as the granite state and it's because their number one natural resource is granite. this is a particularly good stone
for building bridges, houses, even statues. and although the colony was first established for fishing, they quickly learned what the really had going on. - those nine stars around the border signify an additional claim to fame. after the revolutionary war, our new constitution required approval by nine of the 13 states. new hampshire made it happen by being the ninth state to ratify the famous document. with flag facts, i'm eric. (calm and relaxing country music) - walk off home runs are always very dramatic for any baseball team. a walk off home run is when a team wins a game on a home run in the team's final at bat. now this has happened twice in world series play to win a world series. the first time it happened was in 1960, where in the bottom of the ninth of game seven, pirates second baseman, bill mazeroski, hit a home run off yankees relief pitcher ralph terry. that was the pirates third world series crown.
in 1993, the toronto blue jays won their second consecutive world series on a walk off three run world series winning home run by joe carter. i'm matt with teen kids news. (exciting and energetic music) - coming up. another great a video from the website hooplaha. it's one you really shouldn't miss, so stick around. teen kids news will be right back.
teens today are more stressed than ever. while we can't avoid things like grades, tests, and social pressures, we can learn to deal with the stress they cause. as emily reports, one technique is yoga. (calm and serene music) - with me is brenda schnable. she's a yoga therapist. hi, how are you? - hi emily - so what exactly is yoga? - yoga is a mind body practice that was created about 8,000 years ago in ancient india. - and how can yoga help us deal with stress? - yoga helps you on a physical, mental, and emotional level, builds your self-confidence, and when you feel more confident, physically and mentally, you don't get stressed out as easy. and it also helps you build awareness of what's important to you and what triggers your stress so that when you see yourself in that situation
you can walk away from the drama and not react to it. - interesting. so when i get stress, i feel it in my neck and shoulders. how can yoga help us deal with that tightness? - that's very common, 'cause we all get stressed and our shoulders start to creep up and especially when we're looking over at a computer and our eyes are getting all strained. the first thing you need to do is just relax those shoulders down. that's. yeah and then you want to stretch all sides of your neck. so take your chin to your chest and just gently roll side to side. to stretch the side of the neck. and then to stretch the front and back as well as the shoulders, bring the chin to the chest and the back of the hands together. take a deep inhale and open the arms out to the sides. squeeze the shoulder blades together, lift the chin, and exhale, and you're going to stretch the back of the neck again. and when you open up, you stretch the front of the throat.
and how does that feel? - very good. i'm already feeling less stressed. - awesome - thank you. - you're welcome. - with yoga and you, i'm emily. - when you have a very serious illness like cancer, you really need to find friends to help you get through it. and there's an organization that can help with that. here's this week's video from the folks at hooplaha . (calm and and tranquil music) - [lily] i think evelyn and i will be friends for quite a while. - my name is evelyn rosales, i'm 19 years old, and i was diagnosed with ewing's sarcoma, a bone and tissue cancer, at the age of 16. the next few years were a bit hectic, a bit crazy, because i would go in and out from the hospital for my chemo and surgeries from left to right, and it was just really crazy. i wasn't able to go to school. i was home schooled for a year. - no worries now is a nonprofit organization that's centered on improving the lives of kids
and teenagers that suffer from terminal illnesses, and the pair program is a specific program that brings together patients and volunteers from the l.a. area to meet up on monthly events and outings to help improve the social normalcy of the lives of the patients. - evelyn and i met for the first time in june last year at a meet up, and then we've been meeting on and off for the past eight months, and keeping touch in between by texting, facebook, all that fun stuff. - i was really impressed from the very beginning. we had an event at the sculpture gardens at ucla and everyone was kinda crowding around the sculpture gardens, but lily and evelyn went off by themselves and went on a little adventure around ucla as lily showed evelyn the campus. and i thought it was a really cool friendship that started right from the beginning. - my friendship with lily has made my life better because i'm able to go to her when i'm feeling down.
she reassures me and she brightens up my day when i'm feeling self-conscious about myself. - in the beginning, she was looking for a big sister type of relationship. but we found out very quickly that she's actually older than i am by a few months. so we, instead of having the big sister, little sister relationship, it's really just been a straight friendship. so we bonded over a lot of things, from both going through our freshman year of college, and we had a lot of time talking about those type of experiences. - with just a few words from lily, it makes life a bit better and makes life easier on me, and she's just a great friend. oh yeah. put it in your car. - we'll have more great stories from our friends at hooplaha on future shows. for teen kids news, i'm daniella. (exciting and energetic music) - you may not think veggies belong in a pastry, but get ready to think again. my recipe is next on teen kids news.

is a college for those interested in becoming a chef or working in food services. so when they come up with a recipe, you know it's going to be good. let's see what's cooking this week. - the word pastry usually brings to mind dessert, but i'm going to show you how to make a savory pastry. that means not sweet or a dessert. let's get started. here's what you'll need. from a to z, i've got the vegetables asparagus, squash, and zucchini. i've diced the squash and cut the asparagus. what you'll do is you'll take these vegetables and put them into a bowl. with the asparagus, you'll add extra virgin olive oil, about two tablespoons, or just enough to cover the vegetables. salt and pepper, for seasoning. then you'll mix with a spoon.
once the vegetables are coated with the oil and the salt and pepper, you can now place them onto the cookie sheet. i used parchment paper to line this baking sheet. makes the cleanup a lot easier. you'll want to arrange the vegetables onto one layer so that they cook evenly. next, you'll want to put them into an oven. 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. while the vegetables are cooking, we can now cut our pastry dough. you can pick this up at the local supermarket. it comes rolled just like this in the freezer section. we're not gonna use the entire roll today, just about half. to be safe, i'm using a pizza cutter. i'll cut it in half, just like that, and save that for later.
i'm gonna cut this section right in half, and then i'm gonna make rectangles. you can make triangles, squares, or circles. it's up to you. on another baking sheet, like the one we used for the vegetables, i'm going to take the squares and place them neatly about an inch or two inches in between each one. now we wait for the vegetables to cook. we'll clean up the station a little, and get the vegetables ready. ah, these look delicious. these are pretty hot, so we're just gonna let these cool. while they're cooling, we'll go ahead and spread the goat cheese on our goat cheese bites.
just gonna take a little bit here, about the size of your thumb, and put it right in the middle. take the backside of your spoon. you can press the goat cheese down just a little to kind of make a boat, there. it's tricky to work with, but trust me, it's worth it. absolutely delicious. you won't find this in a dessert. now that that's finished, you're still waiting for your vegetables to cool, you can clean your hands. now it's time for our vegetables. i'm gonna use another spoon here and just pick up a little bit of the vegetables, and put it right on the middle of that goat cheese. make sure to pick up each different type of vegetable.
alright. now the vegetables are on the goat cheese, we can put it in the oven. i'm gonna put it back into the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until they're golden brown. let's check our puff pastry bites. nice golden brown, and hopefully delicious. these are best served warm, so i'm gonna go ahead and put them on this plate here. be careful, the pan is really hot. - there you have it. goat cheese vegetable puff pastry bites. a great snack that's healthy and delicious. at the culinary institute of america, for teen kids news, i'm fletch. mmm,
