Good afternoon, you lot, Martin here with all

:00:00.:00:00.

Coming up on Newsround: The crack in the ice causing

:00:00.:00:00.

And Johanna Konta beats the tennis world number one

:00:07.:00:10.

First, America is waking up today to a new president - Donald Trump.

:00:11.:00:25.

The billionaire businessman and former reality TV star has

:00:26.:00:27.

taken charge of the US, after a huge inauguration

:00:28.:00:29.

Leah was there in the capital, Washington.

:00:30.:00:39.

This is the moment Donald Trump officially became the 45th president

:00:40.:00:42.

I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that

:00:43.:00:48.

I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States.

:00:49.:00:55.

In his speech afterwards he told the crowds that he

:00:56.:00:57.

I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never,

:00:58.:01:04.

The ceremony was also timed to say goodbye to outgoing

:01:05.:01:15.

President Barack Obama who flew out in a helicopter.

:01:16.:01:18.

Thousands of people came to watch Trump's inauguration.

:01:19.:01:26.

Since he's going to be running our country, I want to help

:01:27.:01:29.

It was pretty exciting because this is the moment

:01:30.:01:33.

He can't really do anything too terrible so I'm interested

:01:34.:01:39.

It's an historical moment so I'm happy to be here.

:01:40.:01:44.

These people are protesting outside his new hotel in Washington, DC.

:01:45.:01:54.

They are unhappy and they don't think he's the right

:01:55.:01:57.

There are more protests expected here, too.

:01:58.:02:02.

I really have no idea how he will run this country.

:02:03.:02:06.

So far it doesn't seem like he's been doing the best kind of job.

:02:07.:02:11.

I hope that he doesn't, like, pick fights with other

:02:12.:02:14.

Try not to mess America up that much in four years.

:02:15.:02:25.

And now, for the first time, the new president of America,

:02:26.:02:32.

Mr Donald Trump, is here along the parade route greeting people

:02:33.:02:35.

He's our new President, I can't do anything about it so...

:02:36.:02:45.

I feel like he's a great businessman and will do a great

:02:46.:02:48.

I think he's going to do a lot of things.

:02:49.:02:54.

So, as Donald Trump wakes up to his first morning in the White House,

:02:55.:03:00.

the country is waiting to see if he can live up to his promises.

:03:01.:03:06.

And on his first day as President, Donald Trump will be waking up

:03:07.:03:09.

to thousands of women marching as part of a big campaign to raise

:03:10.:03:12.

awareness for gender equality and women's rights.

:03:13.:03:15.

This is because protestors think their rights could be under

:03:16.:03:17.

threat from the new president after rude comments he has made

:03:18.:03:20.

Marches are taking place in 32 different countries

:03:21.:03:24.

with the biggest in Washington DC, the capital of America.

:03:25.:03:31.

If you want any more info on the inauguration or Donald Trump,

:03:32.:03:33.

then head online for Leah's reports from the US.

:03:34.:03:38.

A wee bit of tennis news and Britain's Johanna Konta

:03:39.:03:40.

is through to the fourth round of the Australian Open.

:03:41.:03:43.

She beat former world number one Caroline Wozniacki

:03:44.:03:46.

Johanna looked very comfortable during the match.

:03:47.:03:50.

Beating her opponent 6-3 6-1 in 75 minutes.

:03:51.:03:53.

Making it eight victories in a row, it's safe to say she's on a roll

:03:54.:03:56.

after winning the warm up title in Sydney before this tournament.

:03:57.:03:59.

Russia's Ekaterina Makarova will be next in line

:04:00.:04:05.

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

:04:06.:04:12.

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

:04:13.:04:15.

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

:04:16.:04:18.

It goes on for miles. This huge cracks deep into the ice has been

:04:19.:04:36.

captured by a droning on task. The crackers in an area called the

:04:37.:04:40.

floating brunt ice shelf, just ten miles from the crack, British

:04:41.:04:44.

scientists are based at a station. The station is made up of big blue

:04:45.:04:48.

had is with a big red pod in the middle. They have made the decision

:04:49.:04:52.

to move their base because they don't know what will happen to the

:04:53.:04:56.

ice shelf in the next few months. Luckily, the pods are designed to

:04:57.:05:00.

move, with the likes fitted onto big skis. Next few months are important

:05:01.:05:04.

because the Antarctic winter will be starting and the area will be pitch

black months. It also means it would be difficult to evacuate people from

:05:09.:05:13.

the area in the winter conditions. Temperatures get as low as -55

:05:14.:05:19.

Celsius. We have taken a prudent decision but in light of this new

crack it will be best and safest to close the station in a controlled

way as to bring our team home, because there are safety is

paramount to us. The survey also say that cracks in ice shelves aren't

:05:32.:05:35.

unusual, but this new crack is growing. They plan to go back to the

:05:36.:05:40.
