Good afternoon, Im Hayley
and you're live with me
for the next few minutes.
Here's whats going on.
Cities get ready
for Chinese New Year!
And the pig who can paint.
Let's head to South Korea
and imagine going to the Olympics
with your bother or sister.
Well today has been a big day
for the Muirhead family
with not just one member
of the family at the Winter
Olympics but three!
Sister Eve and brothers Thomas
and Glen are all part
of the Team GB women's
and men's curling teams.
The women beat the Russian athletes
this morning but the men lost
to Canada at lunchtime.
Now, when I say "pig" you probably
think about mud and slops rather
than paints and brushes,
but that is about to change.
Yes, this is real.
There is something
special about this pig.
She might look ordinary,
but belive me she is not.
This is Picasso, I mean "Pigcasso".
Yes, she is a painting pig.
So what else would she be called?
Pigcasso lives on a farm Sanctuary
on a small farm in South Africa.
Her owners say she loves painting
landscapes and most recently
tried her snout at a portrait of US
President Donald Trump.
Is it that one?
Or this one?
She is famous around
the world for her piggy pics.
Trust me, it is not hogwash.
She even got her own art exhibition.
I hope she doesn't run out of oink,
I mean ink, for all those autographs
she will be signing.
Next up, he's a musician,
record producer and a judge
on The Voice but now Will.iam
is adding author to the list!
The superstar has created a new book
where wizards are real and robots
from the future have arrived.
Newsround sent its own virtual
bot to find out more.
Brian David Johnson
is the book Dude.
He has like lots of books
so he gave me one of his books
and I thought one day
I might do a book.
My mind was really inspired
and I envisioned this wizarding
robot world and I called Brian.
I called him and I said,
"What do you think about this idea?"
And then we collaborated.
We started by creating this world
because with William's imagination
it is so big and we really just took
time to make the world larger
and make it real and plausible
because everything is based on real
technology and all of the spells
and the wizards are based on quantum
physics and science.
What is so special about Ada
in the book is a real life Ada.
There are a lot of Adas out
there and what they are doing
is they are going against the odds,
they are going against culture.
Culture is telling them
they should be models,
they should be a celebrity that does
nothing, I'm just famous.
The Adas out there in the world
are going against the grain.
I am going to do the not
so cool thing and later
on it is a cool thing.
And the cool thing she did
was build an amazing robot.
I'm a good wizard.
I'm a robot.
From the beginning it has always
been the wizard and the robot.
Check us out.
Last up, Chinese New Year begins
this Friday and millions of people
from all over the world are getting
ready to celebrate.
In south China a colourful light
show on a mega scale
is pulling in huge crowds.
Skyscrapers are covered in lights
and lasers and as it's
the year of the dog,
they've even got a 28-meter-high
Take a look.
Thats all your news for today,
but I'll have more for you bright
and early tomorrow morning.
Happy Valentine's Day and I love you
