Hello, Team Newsround!
I'm Jenny - you are live with CBBC.
All this is on the way:
Why this athlete was running solo...
big minecraft news...
And the song breaking even more records.
First to the big argument between the United States
of America and North Korea, a country in the east of Asia.
So what do we know?
Two men and two Koreas - warships, missiles and threats.
What is going on and is it as scary as it sounds?
Let's start with the two Koreas.
One country is called North Korea and
the other, South Korea.
They were split in two after World War II,
fought a war with each other shortly after that,
and haven't gotten along since.
And now the two men?
One is the leader of North Korea.
He is Kim Jong Un and he runs the country
just like his dad and grandad before him.
The other is Donald Trump, President of the USA -
a country which has supported South Korea for along time.
North Korea is a country that has cut itself off
from the rest of the world.
Lots of things are run in secret there, and Kim has
huge control over people's lives.
He has also been trying to build nuclear missiles - powerful bombs
that can cause devastating damage, that one day might be able to hit
President Trump wants to stop this happening and he's given a warning.
North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States.
They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.
In return, North Korea has threatened US military bases in
So all of this is pretty worrying to many people around the world.
But there have been many arguments between the USA
and North Korea in the past and, although they've never
been friends, things have been worked out to stop a war.
Everyone is hoping that will be the case this time as well.
If you've been watching the World Athletics Championships,
you'll have heard of this guy - Botswana's Isaac Makwala.
What a journey he's been on.
Two days ago, he was one of a number of athletes
affected by a stomach bug, and was stopped from
competing in the 400 metres, for medical reasons.
He's now been given the chance to run the 200 metres on his own.
Roared on by the crowd, he qualified, booking
a place in the semi finals.
I wish to thank the IAAF for giving me another chance.
And the crowd is so amazing.
They led me to believe.
The crowd for British...
I just want to thank this crowd - it's so amazing.
And Mo Farah will be going for gold again on Saturday,
after he qualified for the final of the 5,000 metres last night.
He'll be joined by fellow Brit Andy Butchart,
after he qualified as a fastest loser from the second heat.
Mo says he's worked hard for what he's achieved,
and encourages people to do the same.
You can't dream of something unless you do something about it.
And I've been given a chance in life and I
work for hard for it, and I achieve what I have achieved
through hard work and keep grafting.
To all the kids out there, the youngsters, you can be like me.
And there's another huge sporting event happening
in Sheffield this week - the UK Special Olympics.
Around 2,600 competitors are taking part in the games,
featuring athletes with a variety of learning disabilities.
This year's Special Olympics has had more interest than ever before, and
more athletes have taken to the tracks.
Keira is the current women's world champion in cycling
for intellectual disabilities, and she has been training for three
years for today's Special Olympics.
Keira, you've not got long until your first race.
How are you feeling?
I am nervous, I'm not going to lie.
There's quite a lot of great writers here so obviously the
There's quite a lot of great riders here so obviously the
competition is going to be quite high.
Do you find your learning disability does have an effect on
your training, does it make it more difficult?
Yes, because I struggle with sense of direction.
Because I struggle with time as well the
Special Olympics gave me a place where I could be myself, with
everybody else, and it's just amazing.
Has all that hard work paid off?
Now, I've just found out the results and I can tell you that you
How do you feel?
Well, there's more to go, but you just got a silver medal!
Big news for Minecraft fans now, as the yearly conference,
called Minecon, is being changed.
It'll now be a free and interactive, live streamed show, called
Minecon Earth, instead.
The Minecraft team hope this will mean more people can take part.
They're still encouraging fans to dress up, and submit
their Minecraft-themed costumes online.
Next to this song.
Yep - we all know it.
It's one of the catchiest tunes of the Summer - Despasito.
Well it's now the most watched video on YouTube of all time.
It's been viewed more than 3 billion times.
And it was only uploaded in January!
That's all from the team this morning -
Newsround's back at 4:20pm with Ricky.
Don't forget to go online, where you can find out which cat you are.
I'm a Bengal, FYI.
Have a brilliant day!
I've got two favourite shows on CBBC.
My first one is The Next Step because I love dancing.
I'm a ballet dancer.
