Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Children around the world are learning at least one hour of computer science this week.

The campaign, called "Hour of Code," is aimed at helping five million children learn computing skills.

President Obama and House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor support the campaign, along with a number of top celebrities, and the heads of Facebook and Google.

Apple and Microsoft stores are holding "Hour of Code" learning events this week.

Same singer, different day

We haven't seen the last of Rebecca Black. You know, the viral sensation behind that song Friday.

She's back with a new song and music video. This time it's one day later.

The music video is trending across the US and in the Twin Ports coming in the most viewed video on YouTube with more than 12 million hits since the weekend.

The song is pretty self-explanatory.

Cat video festival at Zeitgeist

While we're on the topic of YouTube, it's hard not to talk about cat videos!

You know you love them.

The fancy felines hit the big screen at Zeitgeist in Duluth Tuesday night.

Zinema 2 and the Duluth Art Institute will be screening the insanely popular Cat Video Film Festival from the Walker Art Center along with some special videos made right here in the Twin Ports.

Racking up frequent flier miles?

Here's one story trending on NNCNOW.com.

Somehow, all of the passengers and the flight staff exited the plane, and no one thought to wake the man up before leaving the plane.
