Hi, I'm Ayshah and
this is Newsround.
All this on the way...
Buddy the dog and the man
who rescued him from a hurricane...
The people clubbing together
to buy this castle...
And the astronauts enjoying a nice
slice of pizza in space.
A year ago, eleven-year-old Raghba
had never even played Squash.
But now she's dreaming of playing
for her country - Syria.
Whitney's got this.
She trains almost everyday,
focusing on her game and working
to be quicker on her feet.
But five years ago, life was very
different for Raghba and her family.
When they were forced
to leave their home town of Homs
because of the war in Syria.
They moved across the border
to Jordan, where they first
lived in a refugee camp.
It was when the family moved
to the outskirts of the city that
Raghba and her sisters got
the chance to try squash.
She now plays in a team of four
girls and it's not just
all about the sport either.
We have training five times a week,
learning to play both squash
and English, to help them become
competitive squash players,
so they can compete in tournaments,
both here in Jordan
and around the world.
And we also want them
to achieve academic status,
so they can enrol in schools.
Squash isn't an overly
popular sport in Syria,
although lots of people play it
in other countries
in the Middle East.
But now Raghba and her team-mates
are hoping to one day go back
to Syria and share their love
of the sport.
It's been six months
since I played squash
and I want to play around the world
and go back to Syria
and become a coach.
I want to take part in Arab
and foreign tournaments.
I like sport
and especially squash
because when I grow up
I want to travel and compete
in tournaments around the world
and make Syria and my family proud.
Best of luck, girls!
I hope you smash it.
Now to cricket, and the Ashes.
It wasn't good news for England
yesterday but today they're
fighting back, on day four
of the second test.
The teams play five tests over
the course of the competition.
Australia won the first test,
and England need to do really well
over the next day and a half to win
Now to a lovely tale of a police
officer who rescued a dog
after Hurricane Irma.
He's now brought him back to the UK
from the British Virgin Islands.
Meet Buddy, the lucky labrador
cross, who is now living in the UK.
Buddy is a stray.
He won the heart of a police
officer called John Harvey.
John was sent from Suffolk Police
to the British Virgin Islands
to help people after the devastation
of Hurricane Irma.
He put his paws around my thigh
and just wouldn't let me go, really.
I was trying to leave
and he was walking with me
on his back legs and I just thought,
you know, I'd like to
bring him home if I can.
And give him a chance
of a better life, really.
Buddy spent 21 days in Washington,
DC in the US, where vets checked
that he was healthy and fit,
before he was allowed
to travel on to the UK.
It looks fantastic,
really good to see him,
he was excited, I was excited.
And it was kind of the start
of the next chapter.
This hand, ready for new adventures
together. But it can all get a bit
Imagine owning somewhere
as fancy as this!
But without having to spend loads
and loads of money to buy it!
Thousands of people across the world
joined together to buy this
thirteenth century French castle.
It cost 500,000 euros to buy,
but some people only paid around
£45 for a share.
They're now planning to fix it up
and restore it to it's former glory.
We've put humans on the moon,
sent a rover to Mars and now we've
sent pizza to space.
Astronauts on the International
Space Station had their
very own pizza party.
The toppings - pepperoni,
tomato sauce, cheese
and olives, were all sent up
on a special supply ship.
Commander Randy Bresnik said
the pizzas were "flying saucers
of the edible kind".
Well that's just one
of the best quotes ever!
Come back after The Zoo to find
out why this beautiful
rainbow is record breaking.
Go online for some skiing Santanas
and take a lot at the supermoon
