Antonio Guterres, the UN secretary general made a surprise visit to Ukraine to meet with president zelensky and check in on a deal to export grain at the UN CBS News Pamela faulk, says Guterres is accompanied by Turkish officials who brokered the green deal with Moscow. With the successful negotiation between the warring sides to export grain and alleviate the world food crisis, there is pressure and a potential opening for the UN to broker some kind of ceasefire, but any end to the fighting seems a distant hope with intense attacks by Russia throughout Ukraine. Falk reports that Guterres is also gathering information on the risk of the war damaging Europe's largest nuclear power plant, which is located in Ukraine. The security situation in Crimea is deteriorating for Russia's military, and this could be a big turn in the war, WTO's national security correspondent JJ green. Yesterday, we told you Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky warned people in Crimea and other heavily populated areas in Ukraine not to go near Russian military installations. As Ukraine appears to step up its counter offensive against Russian forces. This counteroffensive is about to hit its stride. Sources have told us today. We've learned since yesterday, there is an elite unit of Ukrainian military dedicated to nothing else, except guerrilla warfare. And destabilizing Russia's military in Ukraine. So these bases are going to come under attack more and more frequently. They're widely believed these units to be the best in the world. And they've been doing it for 8 years since Russia first invaded Ukraine and they've gotten better and better at it and we're about to see exactly what they can do. JJ green, WTO news.

So don't drive across anywhere any areas or if you don't know the depth of the water best way, try to find a different way around any flooded roadways that you see this evening across central saint Mary's county. All righty, Mike, thanks so much. It's 6 33. In other news, the Senate had planned this evening to take a key step to advance a big Bill to ramp up U.S. production of computer chips, but the weather intervened. More from WTO's Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill. The shortage of computer chips has pushed up costs for a wide range of products, including cars, Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer says the legislation is critical. Tens of billions of dollars. Countless good paying jobs are at stake. For that reason, I'm glad we're close to pushing this bill over the goal line. Texas Republican John cornyn also supports the bill. If we don't participate in this competition, we will end up maintaining our dependency. Senators hand hope to take a procedural vote, but that has been delayed until Tuesday. The stormy weather simply delayed too many senators from coming back to Washington for the vote. On Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller, WTO, news. 6 34, President Biden's doctor says his COVID symptoms of almost completely resolve, the president himself told reporters he's feeling much better. I'm feeling great. There's no I've had two full nights of sleep all the way through. I had a fact that my dog had to wake me up this morning. My wife's not here. She usually takes him out in the morning. Preliminary lab results suggest that the president was infected with the highly contagious BA 5 sub variant. And COVID cases are growing on Capitol Hill. Maryland congressman Dutch troopers burger tested positive for the virus last night. The Democrats office says his symptoms are mild. Earlier today, two U.S. senators who have been in the news a lot recently also said they're positive. One is West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin, who's fully vaccinated and boosted and says he's got mild symptoms. The other is Alaska senator Lisa Murkowski. She's quarantining at home in Alaska and continuing to work remotely. You're going to stay with Capitol Hill here the House committee investigating January 6th and the riot says former president Trump did not follow through on the tough talk he was supposed to give the nation the day after the riot. It looks like my father's handwriting. The panels released what it says was Trump's original script for a tape to dress on January 7th as part of a short video, including depositions from Ivanka Trump and others. The script shows several lines crossed out in black marker, apparently by the president. One referenced ordering the Justice Department to fully prosecute lawbreakers. The president did not say that He did reference the rioters. You do not represent our country, but the script also called for him to say the rioters do not represent me. That needed to be stated for. White House counsel pat cipollone told the panel the president needed to make the consequences more clear. Asked why his father in law made the changes, Jared Kushner gave the same answer twice. I don't know. Sagar Meghani, Washington. D.C. is on a hiring binge. D.C. mayor muriel Bowser is raising the call for people to come work for the city. She says the pay and benefits are great and it's a great place to work. We will be hiring for more than 1000 positions in D.C. government. The number does not include teachers, the public school system does its own hiring. The mayor is also signed into law, pay raises for the city's non union employees, 10,000 union employees were given races in March. The city says its scores of job openings, span across all the agencies, and the goal is to fill the positions by October 1st.

And it's going to be one of those mornings for us here in central Florida, where we get the intermittent rain as we're getting now, here on North Young young Parkway, rain in some wind, um and and then absolutely nothing. And then it's back to the Squali weather again. So this should last through the morning hours. The morning drive hours. The good news. The good news here is that even though we are seeing the heaviest weather of the early morning hours in Orange and Seminole counties right now and Into Osceola County that it certainly looks like we are going to escape the brunt of the storm.

Oil pipeline route changed to save endangered Kenyan zebra with the help of AI and citizen scientists

"And finally also the triple. As A. I. TO RESCUE Zemmiri's Dan Rubenstein is a professor of biology at Princeton. Ai Comes in two forms. One is supervised machine learning and the others unsupervised machine learning and we use the supervised version in the sense that we can train algorithms to identify zebras by their stripes by the natural bar codes. And once we do that we're able to take photographs that scientists get or citizens get as they drive around on safari or school kids. Get as they come out to the national parks and we're able to say is this animal and seen before and because most cameras will have A. Gps or at least a time stamp will know where it was seeing and when it was seen so they I can start to tell us who went and wear an animal is on the landscape and then we can start to put together. Descriptions and visualizations of its movements. We can look at where it's home ranges are this because particularly important because in one example. We've always been troubled. Why WANTS PEACE? Zebra gravy Zebra with the long thin stripes in the white belly in the Big Round. Mickey Mouse years are much less Paris than the Common Zebra. The planes eve which had big fat stripes that touch under the belly and it turns out. It's because the plains Zebra drink every day and they go to water and around waters lots of Deng and Deng have parasitic eggs from nematodes that then mature into questing larvae and the larvae. Then wait on the grass to be ingested and so by going to the water every day they reinfecting themselves frequently but the gravy zebra are arid adapted. They only have to come to water. Abouts every three to five days and so we thought Maybe they're so far from water whether very few dung piles whether it's very few questing larvae. They don't get infected as much. Maybe they're healthier because of that test that with you take pictures of animals at waterholes. You don't know how often they come there but if you measure their home range and make the assumption that if the home rages close to water. They use water a lot in the central. Did the home ranges far from water. Then they won't use that waterhole very often and hence they'll be grazing where there are may being larvae. We were able to prove this. Isn't that wonderful now? What if you had no air? What if you had no pictures? How long would it take you to get to that point to understand what's going on you know? In the old days in the old days I used to hand draw every zebra stripes and I would go through and look at my pictures. Then we have one hundred animals. That's easy but when you've got thousands of animals and thousands of new drawings to be processed. You'd be there all year just looking at pictures not doing the science so over time. I worked with different types of technologies all of which sped up the work a little. But it's the machine learning and it's in what we call wild book. We've created facebook for animals where we have images for whale sharks and leopards and Cheetahs and zebras we can process tens of thousands of images so the AI. Naturally speeds up the work. It changes the scale at which you can operate on no longer. You restricted studying a few animals that you put. Gps collars on you can study the majority of the individuals in a population and therefore make inferences. That are probably going to be more biologically accurate and to get all these pictures from even kids in the field on holiday. Whatever is the public willing to hand these other limb to you the gravy Zebra which is very endangered species. No one actually knew how many there were. Everyone's said about two thousand. Maybe twenty five hundred and with numbers that have high variability. No government is going to invest very heavily in projects to try to conserve the species. If they're not really sure if they're at risk and so how. Do you get really good numbers. Will you help blitz? And we do it on a Saturday and Sunday two days in a row but we don't have to invasive Lee touch these animals because they naturally bar coded but how do you get all the images around twenty five thousand square kilometers. Well you work with the many publics and Kenya you work on the conservancies up north by giving cameras with GPS recording ability to the people in the communities that share the landscape with the zebras and their livestock then you can also close Konare. Ob still five hours away. You can engage the public to come up for a weekend. We get discounts from the hotel's people bring their kids and go camping. The kids get to use their parents cameras. For the first time we bring school kids up from the slums of Nairobi. And blend them with the kids. From the landscapes. We work out in the immortal bushy areas so they get to see kids from different lifestyles so becomes a social experiment. Social Novelty Fun weekend and we get about forty or fifty thousand images from this and we do it. What animals are seeing on Day One? What animals are seen on Day? Two and then we very simple question. What fraction of animals that were seen on Day Two? We're seeing on day one and this allows us to estimate the population size using simple statistics. Let me ask you a slightly political question. Let's say you've found an endangered species in small numbers and there's a major development happening and you go to the people who in charge of this major development with millions. And you say there's a problem. What kind of response do you get? That's happened in the real world with us in Kenya. So we noticed on one particular. The Zebra numbers were going down and we knew that the lions were adapting to the very predictable movements of the prey. The zebras we also know it was a conservancy that had eco-tourism so the people wanted to both see endangered grabby Zebra and they want the sea. Lions so lion numbers are very high and they were just picking off the gravy Zebra and we went to the Kenya. Wildlife Service and said. Could we do some adoptive management and experiment with reproductive control not to eliminate the lines but the slow the line growth rate so that both species could coexist and their initial response was well in nature this predators and prey and they have to learn to live with each other and so our request was denied? We weren't asking for any money. We're just asking permission to use this contraceptive technique after the great gravity's rally when we shared the data for the number of Grevy Zebras by county and most counties had about thirty percent recruits. That's Vince one. Year olds in two year olds are mathematical models say that a population will sustain itself. Bits bits about thirty percent made of these juveniles and infants. They saw the population on the part of Mary. County as being the only one way out of line when they saw that we now can use birth control and that comes because when we talked to the cabinet secretary said I believe your numbers and I believe your analysis because you didn't get the data. The public got the data. My citizens got the data from the pastoral people to the school kids to the urbanites middle-class in Nairobi. It was a national effort and by making sure that everybody got involved. Those numbers become real. In the minds of policymakers and sways them to change their behavior. Sure but what? If it's pipeline motivates with millions millions of dollars and examples that indeed Kenya discovered oil and its northwest corner and move that oil to Lamu on the coast. A NEW PIPELINE NEEDS TO BE BUILT. Pipelines caused lots of problems in the US issues everywhere. This pipeline this fears that it's going to disrupt animal movements because corridors are going to be blocked that animals views. And if you don't know where the cars are and you don't know where the hot spots are where the animals breed and where they get their resources. There's really no way you're going to be able to try to attenuate these negative consequences so all our data showing where the animals are and where the babies were and where the moms were and where their home ranges were and how they move by season. We were able to demonstrate that the route of the pipeline has it was proposed would not only go right through the nursery area where the MOMS take the babies to fatten quickly but it also blocked a lot of the carters that allowed them to get to the dry season. Refuge is where the food was that they needed when the rain stopped. We then wrote up a report. As part of the environmental impact statement assessment and the government and the Pipeline Committee realized that with the iconic historic species the gravy Zebra being only two thousand eight hundred left on in Kenya and the basically three thousand left on the planet. Because they have a few hundred Ethiopia. They decided to change the pipeline. And that cost many. Millions of dollars weld Yeah that's where science matters but again it's science not done by the Shamans wearing the white coat in the experts at science. That's a partnership between the muddy booty colleges the technologists that have Ai. That make the day to get gathered at a different scale. In both time and space we can get it quickly and we can get it wide ranging and to get that they that we need the public and so by blending those three partners. That's what makes government's move professor. Dan Rubenstein at Princeton and AAA S. The public that's you make government's move. He said
