Hey, it's good to see you this Thursday, November 12th.
I'm Carl Azuz at the CNN Center.
First up,remember American servicemen and women.
Yesterday was Veterans Day in the U.S.,an occasion to honor anyone who's ever served in the American military.
President Obama took part of the traditional wreath-laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
It's a landmark at Arlington National Cemetery and a resting place for U.S. troops whose remains were never identified.
The president also discussed improvements at the Veterans Administration.
The government organization gives medical care and federal benefits to people who've served in the military.
But a scandal at the V.A. revealed last year found veterans waiting, sometimes indefinitely to see a doctor when they needed one.
Dozens died waiting for treatment.
The president said, since then, the V.A.'s budget, benefits and care have improved and would keep improving.
Their jobs picture is improving, too.
The current unemployment rate for U.S. veterans is 3.9 percent.
That's lower than the overall unemployment rate of 5 percent.
It's partly because some companies have committed to hiring veterans.
Even under the best circumstances, service men and women returning from war face huge challenges transitioning to civilian life.
But as JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon knows well, vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan were walking into an economy in shambles.
They bore an unbelievable price for the rest of us.
And, you know, something like 200,000 coming out of the system.
Every year and for a while, they have very high unemployment rates.
In 2011, joblessness among the youngest vets was 15 percent higher than civilians in the same age group.
That's when the private sector and the nation's biggest bank formed Veterans Jobs Mission.
Navy veteran Jay Siembieda joined JPMorgan as a private banker in 2009.
And he helps the company's HR team recruit and mentor troops walking off the battlefield and into corporate America.
The military does a great job of training their people.
That's the purpose, to defend the country.
But it is difficult to know what your options are when you leave the military.
What's not in the manual that you would urge hiring managers to do when they interact with veterans, especially early on?
Early on is have patience.
Realize again the types of stresses that these veterans who have had when they were in service and look beyond that and look at the underlying skills that they bring, the real tangibles.
The veterans are among the great citizens of America.
And as you know, since 9/11, they have been bearing a tremendous burden for the rest of us.
So, we want to do our share to bring them back into society and give them jobs.
And so, the mission has been a wonderful thing for the company and for the veterans.
A mystery is rising over the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The architectural phenomenon dating back about 4,500 years is the only one of the seven wonders of the ancient world that's still standing.
An international group of researchers is using lasers and drones to scan and see inside the Egyptian pyramid.
They recently announced that they found several thermal anomalies, areas that have temperatures unlike the rest of the pyramid.
It could be cracks or holes inside the structure.
It could be secret passage ways or undiscovered tombs.
The research project lasts until the end of next year.
Scientists are hoping it will help them better understand the structure of the pyramids and how they were built.
Earlier this year, we told you about another mystery, this one in Europe.
According to a legend dating back to World War II, the Nazis filled train-full of treasure, gold, maybe art stolen throughout Europe and hid it somewhere in Poland.
This August, two treasure hunters said they found it, a 100-meter or 330-foot-long gold train, possibly with treasure worth millions of dollars.
The train is thought to be hidden in an extensive network of tunnels the Nazis dug.
They extend beneath Poland's mountainous Walbrzych District.
Now, a new search is on.
Teams of inspectors have been allowed to start investigating the area.
They're not allowed at this point to drill, dig or go underground.
