Good afternoon and Happy Tuesday!

0:00:040:00:06

I'm Jenny, here's what's coming up on Newsround.

0:00:060:00:10

There ain't no party like a panda bear party.

0:00:100:00:13

And the sinkhole taking a bite out of a US neighbourhood.

0:00:130:00:17

First to the World Athletics Championships in London,

0:00:250:00:28

where 30 athletes and their teams have been hit by

0:00:280:00:30

a severe stomach bug.

0:00:300:00:33

Competitors from Germany, Botswana, Canada and Ireland all fell ill

0:00:330:00:35

while staying at the same hotel.

0:00:350:00:39

Health officials say there's no evidence that the hotel

0:00:390:00:43

was to blame for people becoming ill.

0:00:430:00:45

Some athletes have been forced to pull out of their events

0:00:450:00:48

because of illness.

0:00:480:00:51

Well, if you want to know more about that story and hear

0:00:510:00:54

about the gossip and gold medals from the World Athletics

0:00:540:00:57

Championships, get to Newsround online right now!

0:00:570:00:58

It's all there.

0:00:580:01:03

The Women's Rugby World Cup kicks off tomorrow, with England,

0:01:030:01:06

Wales and Ireland all playing their first games.

0:01:060:01:09

But, as the action gets underway, there's a row over

0:01:090:01:12

whether the England team are getting fair treatment from the people

0:01:120:01:14

who run the sport.

0:01:140:01:16

We asked Ayshah and one rugby super fan to speak to some top players

0:01:160:01:20

about what's going on.

0:01:200:01:22

Hi, my name's Rebecca.

0:01:220:01:24

I'm 14 years old and I'm a massive rugby fan.

0:01:240:01:28

I play for my local team as a winger and I love rugby

0:01:280:01:31

because I love getting stuck in.

0:01:310:01:35

Rebecca, do you think rugby's something you want

0:01:350:01:37

to do in the future?

0:01:370:01:39

It's definitely a dream, it's something I'd love

0:01:390:01:41

to do, a big aspiration.

0:01:410:01:43

But there's a problem.

0:01:430:01:45

At the moment the women's England team are all professional.

0:01:450:01:48

That means they get paid to play the game.

0:01:480:01:52

But, in the future, the people who run rugby in England, the RFU,

0:01:520:01:56

say they will only pay women who play the seven a side

0:01:560:01:59

version of the game instead of the 15 a side.

0:01:590:02:03

This is different from the men who get paid to play both.

0:02:030:02:08

Someone who thinks this is a problem is World Cup winner Maggie Alphonsi.

0:02:080:02:13

She captained the England team to victory in 2014.

0:02:130:02:17

As a former player, I'm disappointed because, understandably,

0:02:170:02:19

you want to ensure there is full investment in both

0:02:190:02:22

formats of the game.

0:02:220:02:25

I think all governing bodies can still invest more in women's sports

0:02:250:02:29

and women's teams because we have seen with further investment,

0:02:290:02:31

greater success can come from that.

0:02:310:02:34

We put these points to the current England vice

0:02:340:02:36

captain, Emily Scarratt.

0:02:360:02:39

I think, you know, there's obviously sevens contracts next year.

0:02:390:02:41

The RFU have spoken about how they want to bring 15s contracts

0:02:410:02:45

back into play in a couple of years' time or whenever that may be.

0:02:450:02:49

I think when Rebecca reaches an age where she could be

0:02:490:02:52

playing women's rugby, professional rugby, hopefully

0:02:520:02:55

they will be back in play.

0:02:550:02:58

And it's really important that girls can aspire to want to be

0:02:580:03:01

a professional rugby player.

0:03:010:03:02

So, after hearing from these two players, what does

0:03:020:03:05

Rebecca think now?

0:03:050:03:09

Personally I believe that it's not fair that they've made these

0:03:090:03:14

contract changes because you see the men's, they've kept the same,

0:03:140:03:16

and it is the 15 game as well.

0:03:160:03:18

They've changed it for the women.

0:03:180:03:20

I just don't believe it's right.

0:03:200:03:22

What does it mean for your future in playing rugby do you think?

0:03:220:03:26

I think eventually it will go back but I think at the moment

0:03:260:03:30

it is a bit worrying to see whether or not I could

0:03:300:03:33

make it onto sevens.

0:03:330:03:35

Next to Florida in America, where another house is to be

0:03:360:03:39

demolished because of a huge sinkhole that opened up in July.

0:03:390:03:42

It's the seventh house that's having to come down

0:03:420:03:44

because of this sinkhole.

0:03:440:03:46

Water and debris are being removed to help keep as much

0:03:460:03:49

of the surrounding area safe.

0:03:490:03:51

Sinkholes are common in Florida, because of the type of rock

0:03:510:03:54

the land is made from.

0:03:540:03:55

And from one dramatic scene to another!

0:03:550:03:57

Look at this for a rescue!

0:03:570:04:02

This woman in San Antonio, in Texas, got stranded in her car after heavy

0:04:020:04:05

rain and thunderstorms caused massive floods in the area.

0:04:050:04:09

Firefighters were able to use their ladder to reach her

0:04:090:04:11

and she was able to crawl across it to safety.

0:04:110:04:17

That

0:04:170:04:17

That is

0:04:170:04:17

That is incredible.

0:04:170:04:19

You probably wouldn't be very happy if you got vegetables,

0:04:190:04:21

rather than cake, on your birthday.

0:04:210:04:23

But this isn't a normal party, it's a panda party!

0:04:230:04:26

These twin panda cubs are celebrating their first birthday

0:04:260:04:29

with their mum at Vienna Zoo.

0:04:290:04:30

The presents are full of their favourite treats -

0:04:300:04:32

carrots and sweet potatoes.

0:04:320:04:34

Happy Birthday guys!

0:04:340:04:36

They certainly looked very relaxed about their big day!

0:04:360:04:39

Well, that's all for today.

0:04:390:04:40

Next up is our latest Newsround special.

0:04:400:04:44

The story of three girls, all on a mission of a lifetime

0:04:440:04:47

to find out what happened to their families during

0:04:470:04:49

the Indian Partition 70 years ago.

0:04:490:04:53

They've travelled from the UK to India and Bangladesh to re-create

0:04:530:04:56

the journey that their families made so many years ago.

0:04:560:04:58

Here is their story.

0:04:580:05:00

Ten-year-old Sumayyah comes from Watford outside London.
