Tonight at the I-Desk, you witnessed I-Desk's coverage of breaking news, at its finest. Here's what happened, behind the scenes:

About 5 minutes after the show started, we got word of the hijacking in México. At first, we heard it had happened in Cancún. Turned out, it was actually in México City. As soon as we heard about the possibility of the hijacking, I told Michael Holmes, who filled in for Hala tonight. That way, he would be aware that we were working on the story.

Once the hijacking was confirmed by CNN, we ended our Stephanie Elam liveshot, to bring you the news. Unfortunately, Michael did not have much information to report. So, we took a quick commercial break.

Literally, two seconds before we came back on the air, we received instant translation of our affiliate, TV Azteca. Just so you're aware, our producer, Mayra Cuevas, was the person translating. She did an excellent job!!! Without her voice and efforts, it would have been difficult to bring you the latest, as it happened.

For the next 35 minutes, we stayed on Mayra's translation of TV Azteca. Other CNN affiliates, including Televisa, also covered the story. When we received their live pictures, we showed them to you on the I-Desk Wall.

While that was going on, Michael jotted down notes, watched the coverage closely, and waited for our next move. That move was to wait until the situation seemed to be resolved, then turn to Michael for a quick wrap-up.

That's exactly what we did. We waited until the alleged hijackers were put in the police paddy wagon, then Michael wrapped up the story and tossed to Becky Anderson, for the start of "Connect the World".

Hope you enjoyed it... Tomorrow is sure to be another busy day, at the I-Desk!

See you then!

Its interesting how so many things be happening in the background yet what we see on screen is crisp!
I hope none of you once gets caught live responding to a prompt from the background.

You people keep asking what happen to pilots to let them go astray
you should really be asking a professor of biology better still make sure a professor of mathematics, physics, and chemistry there also.
In the story of St Miguel so much too much chatter, field theory the term COLITIS ,was brought into existence, inflammation of the colon-see ulcerative colitis. lcer a break in skin or mucuous membrane with loss of surfece tissue,disintergration and necrosis of epitheial tissue, and often pus.
Its halloween.see safty board bio-hazard symbols, nuclear hazard symbol, especially emf hazard symbols
hopefully all hostel forces will be nuturalized grand unified field theory
pus policys of gross consumerism.
oh p.s. hazard relative of harvard hint factor out the z and rv zeta function
radiant vector

i am just a lay person but once again hazard /harvard factoring zeta function :A functoin that has certain properties and is calculated as an infinite sum of necative powers.The most commonly encountered zeta function is ythe Riemann zeta function.
The Riemann zeta function extends the definition of Euler s zeta function to all complex numbers.
COMPLEX NUMBERS:In special and general relativity, some formulas for the metric on SPACE_TIME become simpler if the TIME VARIABLE is taken to be imaginary letter Z 7up flip spin down 7=Z
fun with 7& and letter Z.One of many symmetries of 7 with Z
