I first met Rico at the Glendale Winter Shelter, drawn to his large canvas of bright colors. We’ve had some rainy weather in Los Angeles this winter, and the National Guard allowed us to keep the armory open during the day. Rico didn't mind the rain; it excited him because he could work on his art. There is no way to paint a bright colorful picture of homelessness. But there is something incredible about the spirit of a person who has vision that can conquer any challenge. Rico‘s life is not easy. He’s lived on the streets for two of three months since moving to Los Angeles. You could consider Rico lucky because he has a talent that might soon deliver him out of a horrible situation. Thing is, though, I’ve seen many talented people give up on the streets. The difference? Rico is a fighter. The creativity is not just what he puts on the canvas but what he puts in his heart to make it through another day.

BY DEREK KLEIN ANCHOR CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource business news analysis from Newsy Is the Coca-Cola secret recipe out? Can people now make the popular soda in the comfort of their own homes? Ira Glass, radio host of “This American Life”, may have found the way to do it. Glass says he recently discovered the original seven-ingredient recipe in Atlanta, Ga. For nearly 125 years - the secret formula has been kept hidden. Legend has it only two people at a time know the recipe. “It’s made from 20 drops of orange oil, 30 of lemon oil, 10 of nutmeg oil, 5 of coriander oil, 10 of Neroli Oil - it gives it some sort of orangey flavor, 10 of cinnamon oil...” (NPR) Found in a 1979 article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution the recipe outlines the necessary amount of coca, vanilla, caramel, and other delicious ingredients needed for the beverage. But TIME Magazine says having these ingredients does not guarantee the taste Coke customers have come to expect. “While companies like Pepsi have deduced the general ingredients on their own, none have unlocked the ‘Merchandise 7X flavoring’ that gives Coke its unique taste and bubbly burn.” Coke’s ingredients have changed somewhat over the years. The Guardian says cocaine was removed in the early 1900s while sugar was replaced high-fructose sweetener in 1980. CNN says with or without the recipe -- maybe Coke just can’t be replicated. MARKETING PROFESSOR: “They’re selling refreshment. They’re selling happiness.” REPORTER: “In other words, that Coke is just way more than a list of ingredients on an old piece of paper. It is in fact a way of life for many of us. It’s a brand.” Coca-Cola denies the formula is the original recipe. In a statement - a company spokesperson says - quote - “There’s only one ‘Real Thing.’” Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource video news analysis from Newsy. This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. (Video: RT) “And we open with breaking news: the United Nations Security Council has moments ago voted on a resolution, imposing a no-fly zone extending over Libya. And that, quote, “all necessary means can be used to protect citizens.” In world news — Agency reports say British and French warplanes would be leading the imposing of the no-fly zone, even as Gaddafi promises retaliation. RT reports the operation could start as early as today — though some facts are still unclear. “Well in theory this no-fly zone could go into action today, Friday. We are hearing from the French government that it will act swiftly and the British cabinet are meeting and from both these governments we are hearing that they could take action within hours. But there are still many unknowns. Who will be involved? Who will have the chain of command? And what will be the involvement of Arab countries?” Still in world news — Japan has upped its nuclear alert level, signaling a higher risk of radiation. The level rose from 4 to 5, on a 1 to 7 scale. Al Jazeera reports — the workers at Fukushima are now getting more help from the outside to battle the possible catastrophic meltdown. “It’s the fire department that is now being called in to help control the situation at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. Around 30 teams are getting ready to spray Reactor 3 in an attempt to cool the overheating fuel rods. It’s not going to be easy.” In U.S. news — it looks like National Public Radio may have to be National Private Radio. The House yesterday voted to stop any tax dollars from going to NPR. Denver’s KCNC has more on the budget chop. “Last year NPR received $5 million in federal funding. Republicans say cutting those funds would make fiscal sense. The Democrats are calling it an ideological attack that would deprive local stations from access to programs. One Coloradan congressman said the government and media simply don't mix.” Also in U.S. news -- Homeland Security is stepping up enforcement after alarms sounded in Dallas, Chicago, and Seattle airports. The cause? Radiation levels found on passengers and cargo disembarking from Japan. KATU reports. ANCHOR: “The department of homeland security says it's continuing to check passengers and Freight arriving at the nation's airports and sea terminals.” REPORTER: “Sea-tac officials say any higher radiation - found in a cargo jet - was at extremely low levels...Not dangerous. NAPOLITANO: “We are doing screening of passengers and cargo if there happens to be even a blip of radiation.” In entertainment -- Billy Ray Cyrus is picking up the pieces of his Achey Breaky Heart. He’s called off his divorce and is ready to worked out his marital problems with wife of 17 years, Tish Cyrus. ABC News has more. ANCHOR 1: “They have now called off the divorce. And this is sort of a sneak peek "the view" because they sat down for an interview and he reveals he and Tish are trying to reconcile, get the family to come back together.” ANCHOR 2: “And Miley has had her issues the past few months. Let's hope that can bring the family back to you. Good for you. You rarely hear about -- families coming back.” 'Like Newsy' on Facebook for daily updates.
