And on this week's Kickabout,

John Farnsworth teaches you how

0:00:000:00:02

to be more like Man City's brilliant

Belgian Kevin de Bruyne.

0:00:020:00:05

See ya!

0:00:050:00:08

Morning, Ricky here with your Friday

morning Newsround udpate.

0:00:150:00:20

And we're waking up to some great

news from Pyeongchang.

0:00:200:00:22

Our first medal!

0:00:220:00:26

Dom Parsons scooped bronze

in the skeleton bob in the early

0:00:260:00:29

hours of this morning.

0:00:290:00:30

Here's how.

0:00:300:00:33

This is the moment Dom Parsons won

a dramatic bronze medal

0:00:340:00:37

in the men's skeleton

at the Olympic Sliding

0:00:370:00:39

Centre in Pyeongchang.

0:00:390:00:43

Yep, this is Great Britain's

first in the games.

0:00:430:00:50

Starting his final run in third

place, Dom thought he had blown it,

0:00:500:00:54

and lost out on a chance to pick up

a medal, when he slipped behind

0:00:540:00:57

Russia's Nikita Tregubov

with two races still to go.

0:00:570:01:02

But Latvian Martins Dukurs lost time

on the lower part of the course

0:01:020:01:05

to hand Parsons a bronze with just

0.11 seconds on it.

0:01:050:01:10

That's close!

0:01:100:01:14

COMMENTATOR:

He has his medal!

0:01:140:01:15

Come on, Great Britain!

0:01:150:01:16

I thought I'd lost it,

after that second round.

0:01:160:01:18

Well, fourth round.

0:01:180:01:19

Your heart sank?

0:01:190:01:22

I looked up at the time,

I made a couple too many

0:01:220:01:25

mistakes in that run.

0:01:250:01:30

But Martins made some more mistakes,

and he's the last person I thought

0:01:300:01:33

would make those mistakes.

0:01:330:01:34

This is Great Britain's first medal

in the men's skeleton since 1948.

0:01:340:01:42

Well done, Dom.

0:01:450:01:48

Sad news from America next,

where tributes have been

0:01:480:01:50

being paid after a serious gun

attack on Wednesday.

0:01:500:01:52

It happened in a school in Florida.

0:01:520:01:58

Attacks like these don't

tend to happen in other

0:01:580:02:00

countries like the UK,

so it's got some people asking

0:02:000:02:03

why America's attitude

to guns is different.

0:02:030:02:06

In America, it's not unusual

for people to own a gun.

0:02:060:02:09

Many Americans see only

one is an important

0:02:090:02:11

part of who they are.

0:02:110:02:13

That's because when the USA

was founded, the right to buy

0:02:130:02:15

and carry a gun was written

into the constitution.

0:02:150:02:19

That's a list of basic rules that

country is based on.

0:02:190:02:26

But Americans disagree about

what this rule should mean today.

0:02:260:02:29

Some people think that it means

there should be no controls,

0:02:290:02:32

and that people should be able

to buy and carry whatever gun

0:02:320:02:35

they want whenever they want.

0:02:350:02:39

But others think there should be

controls on what type

0:02:390:02:47

of gun you can

0:02:480:02:49

own, and want the most powerful

0:02:490:02:51

guns to be banned.

0:02:510:02:52

And now there's been another

gun attack, and sadly

0:02:520:02:54

17 people have died.

0:02:540:02:55

The attack took place in the city

of Parkland in the state

0:02:550:02:58

of Florida here in the US.

0:02:580:02:59

And shortly after the attack,

police were able to capture

0:02:590:03:02

and arrest the man they believe

was behind the shooting.

0:03:020:03:04

It's the sixth school shooting

in the US this year alone,

0:03:040:03:07

and it has people once again asking

what can be done to deal with gun

0:03:070:03:10

violence here in the US.

0:03:100:03:12

For every 100 people

in the United States,

0:03:120:03:13

there are 90 guns, and to put that

into perspective, in England

0:03:130:03:17

and Wales, for every 100 people,

there are just six guns.

0:03:170:03:21

Attacks like this one don't tend

to happen here in the UK,

0:03:210:03:23

where the rules are tougher.

0:03:230:03:30

In the US, there's no sign that

they'll be able to agree

0:03:300:03:33

on what to do about it.

0:03:330:03:37

Head to Newsround online

where you can find advice

0:03:370:03:40

about what to do if anything

in the news upsets you.

0:03:400:03:43

Next, Happy New Year!

0:03:430:03:44

No, I'm not late.

0:03:440:03:48

It's Chinese New Year, and Ayshah's

got all you need to know.

0:03:480:03:52

Xin nian kuai le!

0:03:520:03:53

Or, happy Chinese New Year.

0:03:530:03:54

Now, you may be thinking,

had on a minute.

0:03:540:03:59

We've already had New Year.

0:03:590:04:02

But Chinese New Year is a bit

different to the one

0:04:020:04:04

we celebrate on January the 1st.

0:04:040:04:06

In China, they use a traditional

calendar, which follows

0:04:060:04:08

the movements of the moon.

0:04:080:04:09

And Chinese New Year celebrates

the start of a new moon.

0:04:090:04:13

Each year is represented

by one of 12 animals

0:04:130:04:15

from the Chinese zodiac.

0:04:150:04:19

And every 12 years, this loops back

around and starts again.

0:04:190:04:23

This year is the year of the dog.

0:04:230:04:25

But what are the qualities

of a person who was born

0:04:250:04:28

in the year of the dog?

0:04:280:04:31

Well, dog people are considered

to be kind, loyal and honest.

0:04:310:04:34

However, they are also

thought to be stubborn,

0:04:340:04:36

easy to anger and fussy.

0:04:360:04:40

Famous people who were born

in the year of the dog include

0:04:400:04:43

Madonna, Justin Bieber and Donald

Trump.

0:04:430:04:47

So if you're celebrating this

year, gong xi fa cai.

0:04:470:04:55

Yes, happy New Year.

0:04:550:04:57

That's all for now.

0:04:570:04:58
