COY WIRE, CNN 10 ANCHOR: What`s up sunshine. It`s time to shine. Welcome to CNN 10. It`s Friday, rise up. I`m your host Coy Wire. Let`s get

dominating this day with the best 10 minutes in news. We`ve got everything covered this week, right, from workers strikes to Royal visits in Kenya to

AI. But we start today with news regarding the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas. Looking further into how the world is responding this time on

some college campuses in the U.S. where tensions are running high.

Some students have been holding rallies, vigils, and protests to voice their feelings about this war. Some are pro-Israeli, the nation where at

least 1400 people were killed when Hamas attacked on October 7th, others are pro-Palestinian in the ongoing counter attacks by Israel, nearly 10,000

Palestinians have been killed in Gaza, the area where Hamas is based. Many students, regardless of their stance are attempting to condemn violence

overall, while largely peaceful, some student groups have erupted into fighting at colleges, including North Carolina Chapel Hill, Indiana

University, and Tulane University.

Because of competing protests at Columbia University administrators, temporary closed campus on Thursday. Universities have been the centerpiece

of demonstrations throughout the years. Notably as students fought for civil rights in 1960s and protested U.S. involvement in the Vietnam war in

the 1970s. The first amendment gives students and everyone the right to express themselves stating that no laws can restrict "freedom of speech" or

of the press or the right of the people peaceably to assemble."

Throughout the years, though, the Supreme Court has stated that that protection has limits and does not include inciting violence. On Tuesday at

Cornell University, a student was arrested for allegedly threatening to harm Jewish students in an online post. And the student has been charged in

federal court.

Well, Cornell closed on Friday telling CNN this was meant to ease the stress that`s been felt in the past weeks. Some Jewish students have told

CNN that they`re seeing an increase in anti-Jewish action and hatred, which is referred to as antisemitic. Antisemitism has long been a problem on

college campuses. And in a survey done in March over half of Jewish students responded saying they`d witnessed or experienced an antisemitic


At the same time, however, advocacy groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations and the Anti-Defamation league say Muslim people

throughout the country have also been the target of increasing harassment and attacks. The type of which are referred to as Islamophobic. President

Biden, who has voiced his administration`s support of Israel has now stated that his administration will also work on a first ever strategy to combat

anti-Muslim sentiment.

College administrators are tasked with attempting to ease tensions on campuses while also expressing support for their student bodies, and their

rights. Many colleges have released statements about the war in the middle east, but some of those responses have incited further protest. Some

universities are choosing to refrain from weighing in at all that has come with some criticism as well. We`ll continue to keep you updated on this

issue right here on CNN 10.

It`s about that time for Daylight Saving Time. This first Sunday in November, we will fall back or turn our clocks back an hour, or our

smartphones will do it for us. So do we gain an hour of sleep or lose an hour? Well, if you usually get up at 6:00 a.m., you`re now going to be

getting up at what would`ve been 7:00 a.m. So yes, we will gain an hour of sleep, hallelujah. On the first Sunday in March. We spring forward or set

our clocks forward an hour.

Daylight Saving Time has been used for more than a century. It was enacted to help us make more use of the day`s light. But a Monmouth University poll

found most Americans wants to stop recognizing it altogether. Some doctors even say the clock change isn`t healthy and can cause headaches in some of

us by affecting the hypothalamus in the brain. The part that manages our circadian rhythm, the circadian rhythm helps all living things adapt and

respond to light and dark within a 24-hour span.

Ten second trivia.

If you`re visiting a loch in Scotland, what are you visiting? A castle, a bridge, a lake or a school?

Ding, ding, ding, ding answer is, a loch. That`s a lake or large body of water surrounded by land.

For today`s story getting a 10 out of 10, we`re headed to Scotland to check up on a tale of a monster named Nessie in a Loch named Ness. Here CNN`s Max

Burnell with more.


MAX BURNELL, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): Scotland`s Loch Ness has long been shrouded in mystery with reports of monsters lurking in its inky depth

stating back to ancient times, it came to the world`s attention in the 1930s with a string of reported sightings and an iconic photo. And while it

has turned out to be one of many hoaxes, monster hunters and curious, tourists alike have continued to flock here ever since.

Now after more than 90 years of fascination, they can visit a new 1.9 million center dedicated to all things Loch Ness monster. While those

wanting to take a closer look can take a trip on the deep scan research vessel. Its skipper Alistair Matheson has spent the last 10 years giving

visitors and researchers their best chance of spotting Nessie.

ALISTAIR MATHESON, DEEPSCAN CAPTAIN LOCH NESS PROJECT: We have been working in recent years out here. We`ve done a few big projects. One of

those projects involved mapping the bottom of Lock Ness. Now, we were using some very clever equipment. And using that equipment I can confirm to you

all we did. In fact, find the Lock Ness monster.

This is the very monster we found here. Well, not quite, not quite, I`m afraid because, because it turned out it was this. So it was actually built

for a movie. But back in the real world, we`re going to sail out into the middle of the loch. You will get to see the size of Loch Ness. It`s fairly

big, of course. Loch Ness is 23 miles long, but on average it`s only a mile wide and it`s deep as well.

So right now we are 226 meters deep and 227 is maximum depth, big red dot. That`s going to be our monster. In 10 years that I`ve been doing this three

times on the echo center in the big red dot. That would be my closest encounter with a monster.

BURNELL: Between 2018 and 2019, the Deepscan helped conduct a DNA survey of the loch while the large amounts of eel DNA found pointed to a more

terrestrial explanation. It didn`t deter monster hunter, Alan McKenna from organizing the biggest creature hunt for 50 years back in August. But the

lack of concrete evidence over the years has done little to dampen the mystery for many.

MATHESON: Definitive proof is always what we want. Isn`t it -- we always want to know yes or no and everything about life, not just monsters, but

for me, there`s a mystery here. And that`s what I firmly believe in.


WIRE: All right, it has been so nice learning with you this week and laughing and having some fun. Halloween was epic. My family were witches,

black cats, and I was the magic broomstick carrying the tiny witches on the candy hunts.

And how about these costumes? Paul from Mr. Neypossi`s (ph) class in Boston`s Spa, New York, looking mighty fierce, I have to say. And dad, Mr.

Rispo (ph) rocking the room and rains look. Or how about the firewalls? Ms. Seamers (ph) and Mrs. Statomyer (ph) at Tumwater in Washington. Now that`s

a 10 out of 10. Thanks to all of you. We have officially reached 800,000 subscribers on our YouTube channel. So now I can do two shoutouts at the

end of every YouTube version of the show.

Today`s shoutout go to Bellmont High School Decatur, Indiana. We see you. And Chaney Middle School in West Fargo, North Dakota, rise up. Have a great

weekend everyone. And remember you are more powerful than you know. I`m Coy. This is CNN 10. It`s been a blessing to spend this week with you.
