Hi, I'm Ricky,
and this is Newsround.
Rescue teams are helping survivors
of the mudslides that have swept
through Santa Barbara county
in southern California in the US.
At least 17 people have died.
Emergency crews are searching
for more than a dozen
people who are missing.
Heavy rains have fallen where
wildfires burned just last month.
It caused rivers of mud
to come pouring down hills.
Chelsea drew the first leg
of their EFL Cup semi-final
with Arsenal 0-0 last night.
The new video assistant referee
system was used twice -
that's where the referee can check
on a TV screen or with a video team.
Last night's ref used it to check
penalty decisions he'd not given.
You can see the microphone he's
wearing while he asks an official
to take a look and check he made
the right call.
But he decided there
was nothing to change his mind.
Next, a Japanese astronaut has
said sorry after wrongly
claiming he'd grown an extra 9
centimetres in space!
But his body has been changing.
This astronaut hit the headlines
this week after saying he had
stretched a staggering nine
centimetres in space, that is the
size of an average chocolate bar!
But he has now admitted to making a
measurement mistake. He has grown
during his first and from the
International Space Station, but
only by two centimetres. It is quite
normal for astronauts because there
is zero gravity, which is the fourth
here on earth that Paul's was
downwards. Without gravity, the
bones in someone's spine can expand
and move slightly leading to a small
change in height. It doesn't hurt,
though. But don't start thinking you
can go up in space if you want to
get taller because it doesn't last
forever. Eventually you'll spying
goes back to normal when you come
back down to earth. -- your spine
goes back to normal.
Now, we're not afraid of talking
about poo here at Newsround -
but this is a stinky story,
even for us...
The beautiful evening in a quaint
English village. Well, things are
not quite as lovely as they seem,
because this lamp could soon be
powered by to. Ryan is an inventor
and he has made a special machine to
turn dog poop into power for lamps.
How does it work?
Lift up the
dispenser and grab a free bag,
however many you want, then we scoop
that into the bag and all you do is
lift up the top covering, the whole
bag, nothing is emptied, goes in
Turning the handle pushes the
bag into the machine, whether poop
is broken down by and this produces
methane and carbon dioxide, which
fuels the light. The lamp is a big
hit in the village and Brian is
hoping that this machine can bring
poop power to other parts of the
country. Looks like it wasn't such a
pants idea after all!
I hope you were not having Coco Pops
Next up, meet one of the stars
of a new BBC nature
documentary which starts tonight.
I've been taking a look.
Meet the world's smallest cat.
No, this is not a kitten, it is of
Rusty spotted cat and lives in Sri
Lanka. They weigh little more than a
bag of sugar, around 200 times
lighter than a lion. Almost fully
grown, this cat can sit in the palm
of your hand, and while he might
look cute, this furry Fala is a
pretty fierce hunter. They look
similar to their furry cousins, the
domestic house cat, but the Rusty
spotted cousin has hardly ever been
filmed like this before. It is one
of the stars in the BBC's new
wildlife documentary Big Cats. Hang
on, shouldn't they have called it
That is it from me for now but we
are back in half an hour, see you
