Hi, I'm Ricky with everything you
need to know this Friday morning.
First to something loads of you were
outraged about last year.
The moment when Northern Ireland
crashed out of their World Cup
play-off against Switzerland.
This is what some of you had to say.
The referee, not sure about that.
The referee is blind. It should not
been a penalty.
It should never have
a rare penalty.
That referee wasn't
the referee, really.
now the referee who awarded that
controversial penalty has admitted,
he made a mistake.
Ovidiu Hategan, ruled
Northern Ireland's Corry Evans
blocked a shot, with his arm
during the first leg,
despite showing the ball struck
the player's shoulder.
Micahel O'Neill's side went
on to lose the match 1-nil,
ending their hopes of reaching
a world cup for the first
time in 32 years.
The ref will not be used
at the World Cup in Russia.
Next, US President Donald Trump
was meant to visit the UK next month
to open the US embassy in London.
But he now he says he's not coming!
The President tweeted
to say it's because he's not a "big
fan" of a new US embassy building,
which was agreed by the last
President Barack Obama.
The building cost one billion
dollars, which Trump is angry about,
because he says it's a "bad
deal" for America.
But the President is likely
to still come to the UK
on an official state visit later
in the year.
And of course you can
head to newsround online
to get more on that.
Next, imagine living in a place
where the cities grow so fast that
there's no room to build houses
on land any more...
so people have to live on the water.
We've met one boy in Nigeria
who does just that...
and goes to school by boat.
Here's his story.
Emmanuelle is 12. Like most is a she
gets up and goes to school. But his
journey is a little bit different.
have to go by boats. It is thought
that we drive.
We cannot pass on
land. His brushes his teeth outside
and the shower has no drain. That's
because he lives in the world's
biggest village built on water.
I live on what is because my father
used to fish. My mother goes to
market and sells it. That is why we
live on water.
His home is a fishing
village so the fishermen can be
neither water if they live on the
shore, but because the city is
growing so fast, there isn't any
space left on land, so they started
building on the water. His primary
school is on a small piece of land.
When the water level is really high,
kids in the ground floor classroom
often end up with wet feet.
go to school you can become a
doctor, a lawyer or an engineer. I
will make sure he becomes one.
is not much room to play outside saw
Emmanuelle is often indoors and
enjoys drawing. He is hoping that
one day he will be able to live on
the mainland so he can play football
without getting wet feet.
Finally, we love investigating
your BIG questions.
Here's what you wanted
to know this week...
My name is Bill I work on dinosaurs.
Wouldn't be greater dinosaurs could
be brought back to life? There are
people trying to get mammoths back
and that looks like it might work,
but dinosaurs are harder because
they are a lot older. At least 65
million years and what we need to do
is to get DNA, which is the building
blocks of life, from a dinosaur.
That might be really difficult. Then
you would have to cross that was
some sort of living creature that
could give birth to a dinosaur. I
think that will be difficult, too.
So at the moment green dinosaur back
is just science fiction. But who
knows, maybe in the future that is
something we can do.
That's it for now.
We're back at 8.20.
