Hi, I'm Martin, It's Thursday and this is what going on in the world.

:00:12.:00:14.

The crack in the ice causing scientists to move house.

:00:15.:00:17.

And the duck having a game of chase with a tiger.

:00:18.:00:27.

There's just one day until this man, Donald Trump, officially takes

:00:28.:00:33.

over as the President of the United States,

:00:34.:00:35.

after winning the American election in November.

:00:36.:00:37.

Leah's travelled to Freeland in the state of Pennsylvania,

:00:38.:00:39.

which voted for Trump, to find out what kids

:00:40.:00:44.

there like about their new leader, and what they hope he'll do.

:00:45.:00:48.

It's a borough in Pennsylvania, home to just a few thousand people.

:00:49.:00:57.

Most people in this area chose Donald Trump

:00:58.:00:59.

And most pupils at this school are Trump fans.

:01:00.:01:05.

There's even a student Trump impressionist on hand

:01:06.:01:07.

This is your President, Donald J Trump.

:01:08.:01:20.

Today's lunch is sloppy Joes with side salad.

:01:21.:01:22.

Have a good day, God bless and make America great again.

:01:23.:01:26.

So why has Trump made such a big impression here?

:01:27.:01:29.

I like Donald Trump because I think he's done a lot as a businessman

:01:30.:01:33.

and he can do a good amount of things for our country.

:01:34.:01:37.

Coal is a big part of Pennsylvania and the North East.

:01:38.:01:40.

I guess people like him because he promised

:01:41.:01:43.

that he was going to keep those jobs going.

:01:44.:01:51.

I like that he is a family guy, because, being, like,

:01:52.:01:57.

a politician and, like, having a family is hard to do.

:01:58.:02:00.

I hope that maybe he could bring jobs back, because there are so many

:02:01.:02:03.

people now who are losing jobs and it's very sad to see people's

:02:04.:02:06.

I don't like Donald Trump because I don't think

:02:07.:02:11.

But, at the same time, apart from that,

:02:12.:02:23.

You don't know what he's going to do next.

:02:24.:02:28.

While Trump came out on top in the election He goes

:02:29.:02:31.

into the White House as the most unpopular president in decades.

:02:32.:02:33.

He's got into trouble about comments he's made about women,

:02:34.:02:37.

using words like "pig, fat or ugly".

:02:38.:02:38.

And he's attacked different groups of people, too,

:02:39.:02:40.

Some people say he's not the right person

:02:41.:02:43.

to lead the country because

:02:44.:02:51.

he has a habit of lashing out at people he disagrees with.

:02:52.:02:54.

He just did all this for attention

:02:55.:02:57.

so that once he is inaugurated, he'll settle down a little bit.

:02:58.:03:06.

I feel he's like everybody - some people have good days and bad days

:03:07.:03:11.

but he's in the spotlight, so his bad days are worse than ours and his

:03:12.:03:15.

I feel if Donald Trump can bring those

:03:16.:03:18.

jobs, then all of our towns will be better places.

:03:19.:03:21.

I hope that he just makes our country a better country

:03:22.:03:25.

and helps stuff go up for our country.

:03:26.:03:28.

Next, primates like gorillas, orangutans and lemurs are facing

:03:29.:03:31.

a big problem with extinction, according to a new study.

:03:32.:03:35.

It looked at more than 500 species of primates

:03:36.:03:37.

and found that 60% of them were facing extinction problems.

:03:38.:03:40.

They blame it on forests being destroyed,

:03:41.:03:42.

which leaves the animals with nowhere to live.

:03:43.:03:44.

Some species of primates are also being hunted.

:03:45.:03:47.

Next, to the coldest place on planet earth, Antarctica.

:03:48.:03:54.

This huge crack has developed in the ice there and has caused some

:03:55.:03:58.

British scientists who are based nearby to move their research labs,

:03:59.:04:01.

This huge crack deep into the ice has been captured

:04:02.:04:14.

The crack is in an area called the Floating Brunt Ice Shelf,

:04:15.:04:19.

and just ten miles from the crack, British scientists are based

:04:20.:04:21.

at the Halley Research Station, which is made up of big,

:04:22.:04:24.

blue pods, with a big red pod in the middle.

:04:25.:04:26.

They've made the decision to move their base,

:04:27.:04:28.

because they don't know what will happen to the ice shelf

:04:29.:04:31.

Luckily the pods are designed to move, with the legs

:04:32.:04:34.

The next few months are important because the Antarctic winter will be

:04:35.:04:41.

starting, and the area will be pitch black for months.

:04:42.:04:43.

It also means that it'll be difficult to evacuate people

:04:44.:04:49.

from the area in the winter conditions, where temperatures get

:04:50.:04:51.

We've taken the prudent decision that, in the light of this

:04:52.:04:57.

new crack, it would be better and the safest thing to do to close

:04:58.:05:01.

the station in a controlled way and bring our team home,

:05:02.:05:03.

because their safety is paramount to us.

:05:04.:05:09.

The British Antarctic Survey also say that cracks in ice

:05:10.:05:11.

shelves aren't unusual, but this new crack is growing.

:05:12.:05:14.

They plan to go back to the area in November to carry on their work

:05:15.:05:17.

And until then, they will monitor the crack.

:05:18.:05:22.

Last up, here's something you don't see every day.

:05:23.:05:30.

That is a duck playing chase with a tiger!

:05:31.:05:32.

The cheeky duck flew into Jalur the tiger's enclosure

:05:33.:05:34.

Jalur chased the duck for 10 minutes

:05:35.:05:37.

but the duck was just too clever for him.

:05:38.:05:39.

In the end, Jalur got fed up and climbed out of the pool.

:05:40.:05:43.

You could be the tiger all the other Tigers laugh at now. That is all

:05:44.:05:54.

from me. We're back this afternoon with Jenny. See you soon. Goodbye.

:05:55.:06:03.

If you're a budding artist, why don't you send us your drawings?

:06:04.:06:06.

We want to see you drawing your favourite scenes

:06:07.:06:08.
