Migrants Try to Cross Border Into U.S.
Dozens of people have been arrested at the border between the U.S. and Mexico after tensions flared earlier this year at the San Ysidro point of entry. This is one of the busiest border crossings in the world. It`s located between southern California and Tijuana, a city in northwest Mexico and U.S. official estimate that about 100,000 people legally cross that border everyday.
But they temporarily closed the crossing on Sunday after 100`s of people on the Mexican side ran past police blockades and tried to get into the U.S. illegally. They`re some of the members of the migrant caravan we`ve reported on this fall. It`s made up of thousands of people, mostly from Central America who`ve been traveling through Mexico in the hopes of gaining entry to the U.S. Sunday`s incident began with what was supposed to be a peaceful march to the border but an number of protestors broke off in different directions once they got close to it.
And when they were stopped, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency says some of the migrants started throwing rocks. In response, CBP said it used tear gas to disperse the protestors. A CBP officials says it doesn`t look like any of the protestors made it into the U.S. illegally, though 69 people were arrested on the U.S. side of the border. Rafael Romo tells us how many arrested on the Mexican and what`s likely to happen to them.

RAFAEL ROMO, CNN SENIOR LATIN AMERICAN AFFAIRS EDITOR:
It all started with a peaceful demonstration but it quickly turned into a chaotic scene when a group of immigrants overwhelmed Mexican federal police and rushed toward the border. The police had been blocking access to the American side but it was impossible for a few dozen officers to stop the flow of hundreds of people. The crowd included not only men but also women and children according to journalists who witnessed the scene.
The maylay left what is known as the busiest land port of entry in the Western Hemisphere quiet for several hours as Customs and Border Protection Authorities temporarily closed off vehicle and pedestrian traffic at San Ysidro. But by Sunday afternoon, CBP reopened the crossing lanes in both directions to pedestrians on the Mexican side. Tijuana police said 39 people were detained in connection with the attempt to rush the border.
Those detained police said will be deported to their countries of origin in Central America.
Earlier Sunday, Mexico`s Interior Ministry said it had stopped nearly 500 migrants who tried to enter the U.S. illegally and that those who could be identified as having participated would be deported. Rafael Romo, CNN Atlanta.
Wildfires in California Contained
Finally some good news to tell you about concerning California`s devastating wildfires. The "Camp Fire", the one in northern California that set records for being the most destructive and most deadly wildfire in California`s history is now 100 percent contained. That doesn`t mean it`s completely out but that it`s been completely surrounded by a fire line that should prevent it from spreading beyond the boundary.
Firefighters battled it for more than two weeks and finally got some help when rain moved in for a few days. The search for survivors continues though. The fast moving blaze killed at least 85 people and around 250 are still missing. 14,000 homes, more than 4,700 businesses and other buildings and an area of land that`s about the size of Chicago have all been lost.
Tensions Between Russia and Ukraine
There`s been a major escalation in the conflict between the nation`s of Russia and Ukraine but there are two very different accounts about what actually happened. Here`s what we know. It involved Russian and Ukrainian ships near the Kerch Straight. This is a narrow passage of water that connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Azov. Russia and Ukraine has ports in both bodies of water so the Kerch Straight is important to both countries.
But while the Kerch Straight itself is supposed to be shared territorial waters of Russia and Ukraine, Russia controls the land on both sides of it.
That includes the Crimean Peninsula which Russia controversially annexed from Ukraine in 2014. On Sunday, Russia captured three Ukrainian ships near the Kerch Straight. Russia says that three Ukrainian warships illegally entered Russian waters and conducted dangerous maneuvers there.
Ukraine says, Russia illegally carried out an act of aggression against it`s ships and the Ukrainian government released this video which appears to show a Russian vessel intentially ramming a Ukrainian tugboat.
Both countries say Russia fired on the Ukrainian ships and that several Ukrainian sailors were injured. Now the whole region`s on edge over this and the fact that Ukraine declared martial law on Monday. That`s when a government takes control of many parts of daily life and it`s usually done in wartime. And this is the first time that`s happened since conflict began between Ukraine and Russia in 2014.
10 Second Trivia
In what year did the U.S. experience it`s highest unemployment rate? 1929, 1933, 1983 or 2009. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says the unemployment rate was about 25 percent in 1933 during the Great Depression.
And during World War II in 1944, that unemployment rate dropped to 1.2 percent likely the lowest on record. Right now it stands at 3.7 percent.
That`s the lowest it`s been since 1969. Some economists call this a job hunter`s market and whether you`re applying for part-time work as the Christmas shopping season heats up. Or you`re trying to land your dream job with a renowned company, there are a few things you can do to make yourself stand out on paper in all the right ways.

The resume. The dreaded resume some would say. It`s all about mind games. I want you to take this resume. This is a real person. We`re calling her Jane Doe to protect her privacy. What`s the first thing when you`re looking at this that you would immediately change and that jumps out at you? First things first is the seven seconds. The first seven seconds when someone`s going to read your resume will actually influence their opinion. So we have all of these different (inaudible) and lines and things happening there. You`re just getting to distracted.
So like, you`re going to be pulling in that direction and then this direction and then whoop, change of font. Change of font again. The location is unnecessary. What I would center all of this information, there should be obviously her name, her phone number, her email and then a little blurb that basically summarizes you or Jane in this case and her career. So the goal of this blurb is for you, in a nutshell to tell these people why you`re such a good fit in a way that your influencing their behavior. You`re not telling them. I`m awesome. I`m ex - - I`m an expert. You`re leaving the information there for them to jump to that conclusion.
I was taught to not let your resume go on to a second page.
But here we have two pages. What do you say?
At Jane`s career level and your career level, like, if you`ve been out of college for a few years. You can go with more pages.
What would you say to her to maximize her incredible experience of wow? (inaudible) almost 17 years at Cedar Sinai.
Right here there`s just way too much information. To much going on. You need to be very (inaudible) and to the point. The way our brain internalizes information, you need to tell them what you did. How you did it and then I recommend you put in a couple of key accomplishments that numerically give the reader an understanding of the scope of what you did.
How do we end it? I usually end it with my education. You`re smirking. Why? Is that lame? Is that lame now a days?
It really is about the experience when someone`s reading through your resume. So you if you close with education, they`ll probably get that oh you went to so and so school. Or, you know, OK. On to the next, however, if you throw in what we usually do is put in an about me section. You`re going to throw your reader totally off guard. And you`re going to tell them something.
Like what`s an example. How far could you go with that?
This woman was applying for a job at Google. And when she was hired, the interviewer - - the hiring manager goes to her and says, you know what. You were neck and neck with someone else but what really, kind of, was a deciding factor was the fact that you are into roller derby and you play the accordion. Like that completely sealed the deal for her.
And they only knew that because of her about me section.
Yes. Because it was completely different.

10 Out of 10
It`s one thing to design an alternatively fueled aircraft but a plane with no moving parts, now that`s electro aerodynamic propulsion for ya. Engineers at MIT say they`ve developed and flown an aircraft powered by ionic wind. When energized wires strip negatively charged electrons from the air ionizing the molecules that move toward negatively charged electrodes at the planes tale. Creating an ionic cloud that creates thrust and allow the plane to fly, or something.
Of course it`s along way from a plane that could carry people places. But if it takes off and propels a "lofty" idea that "airs" on the side of caution but still "jets" off the ground with no moving parts. Now that would be "ionic". I`m Carl Azuz, landing or crashing puns for CNN 10.
