Happy Monday to you, Ayshah here with all of these great

0:00:020:00:04

stories coming up...

0:00:040:00:10

We meet the musical family where absolutely everyone plays something.

0:00:100:00:12

And the super-cool tools Dubai firefighters get to use.

0:00:120:00:17

UK Prime Minister Theresa May will go to America this week to meet

0:00:240:00:28

Donald Trump to talk about how the countries will work together.

0:00:280:00:32

But it's been a tricky first weekend in the job for President Trump.

0:00:320:00:35

His team have argued with the media over the size of the crowds

0:00:350:00:38

who watched his inauguration.

0:00:380:00:40

Photos show large empty spaces when compared

0:00:400:00:44

to Barack Obama's inauguration, but Mr Trump says the crowd was much

0:00:440:00:47

larger than the media says, and they aren't being fair to him.

0:00:470:00:50

The weekend also saw millions of people in America and around

0:00:500:00:53

the world protesting against Donald Trump.

0:00:530:00:57

They were marching to show their support for a number of issues,

0:00:570:01:00

including gender equality and gay rights, which they don't

0:01:000:01:03

think Donald Trump will do enough to protect.

0:01:030:01:09

Now, some of you might play musical instruments,

0:01:090:01:11

but can you imagine coming from a home where everyone

0:01:110:01:13

is a top musician?

0:01:130:01:15

Well, I met one family who are all musically in-tune.

0:01:150:01:23

I play the violin.

0:01:230:01:24

I play the cello.

0:01:240:01:25

I play the piano.

0:01:250:01:26

I play the violin.

0:01:260:01:27

I play the cello.

0:01:270:01:32

Meet the Kanneh-Mason family.

0:01:320:01:34

They're all, you've guessed it, pretty musical.

0:01:340:01:36

You guys come from a really musical family, don't you?

0:01:360:01:39

Yes.

0:01:390:01:40

Tell me a little bit about it.

0:01:400:01:42

It's busy, and exciting.

0:01:420:01:51

It can be very noisy, and it can be kind of annoying when you wake up.

0:01:510:01:54

I'm rather used to it, when you always wake up

0:01:540:01:57

and I can always hear a noise and the sound of music.

0:01:570:02:03

What do you love about music, and why?

0:02:030:02:06

I love music because it just has a lovely nice sound

0:02:060:02:11

with every instrument.

0:02:110:02:13

What I love about music is the fact that everyone is different, it's not

0:02:130:02:16

like maths where the answer's always the same.

0:02:160:02:19

What is it like, you all play musical instruments,

0:02:190:02:21

what is it like to play as a group?

0:02:210:02:24

When we all get together it's really nice, it's just really

0:02:240:02:26

noisy and I like that.

0:02:260:02:28

It's really nice playing with siblings because it's easy

0:02:280:02:32

to tell them what to do without putting it into

0:02:320:02:34

words, they just kind of know what to do next.

0:02:340:02:37

You just look at people... Yeah, and they just know what to do!

0:02:370:02:40

I couldn't leave this musical home without asking them

0:02:400:02:42

for one special request.

0:02:420:02:46

Could you play the Newsround theme music?

0:02:460:02:48

THEY PLAY THE "NEWSROUND" THEME.

0:02:480:02:58

Not bad, guys, not bad.

0:02:580:03:03

OK, time for a quick round-up of some of the top

0:03:030:03:06

sports stories today...

0:03:060:03:10

Britain women's number one Johanna Konta has powered

0:03:100:03:12

in to the quarter-finals of the Australian open after beating

0:03:120:03:15

Russian Ekaterina Makarova 6-1 6-4.

0:03:150:03:17

She's now won 18 sets in a row, but next up

0:03:170:03:21

is American Serena Williams in the next round.

0:03:210:03:25

And it doesn't get more exciting than this -

0:03:250:03:27

93rd minute, 1-0 down, and Burnley are

0:03:270:03:28

awarded this penalty.

0:03:280:03:29

But it didn't end there.

0:03:290:03:31

With less than a minute to go, this foul on Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny

0:03:310:03:34

meant another penalty...

0:03:340:03:38

And a win for Arsenal.

0:03:380:03:40

Goals from Diego Costa and Gary Cahill kept Chelsea

0:03:400:03:43

at the top of the Premier League.

0:03:430:03:45

But earlier in the match Hull's Ryan Mason had a nasty clash

0:03:450:03:48

of heads with Cahill and broke his skull.

0:03:480:03:52

The club have said he is OK but he will have to stay in hospital

0:03:520:03:56

for the next few days.

0:03:560:04:01

To another sport, but one that's called the Formula 1

0:04:010:04:03

of the ice skating world - long-track speedskating.

0:04:030:04:06

100 years ago Great Britain dominated the sport,

0:04:060:04:09

but now it has almost died out here in the UK.

0:04:090:04:11

BBC reporter Mike Bushell has been to check out the new home

0:04:110:04:14

for GB speedskating - in the Netherlands!

0:04:140:04:20

The frozen Fens in east England was the home of a traditional form

0:04:200:04:27

of ice skating called track speedskating, where people

0:04:270:04:29

would race each other on a frozen lake around a long track,

0:04:290:04:32

a test of speed and endurance.

0:04:320:04:34

However, in recent years the temperatures have risen

0:04:340:04:36

and the Fens rarely freeze over, meaning people can't skate on them.

0:04:360:04:39

This meant the popularity of track speedskating dropped in the UK.

0:04:390:04:45

However, here in the Netherlands, it's booming.

0:04:450:04:50

And some of the UK's best long-track speedskaters are now training

0:04:500:04:52

here at this giant arena for their competitions.

0:04:520:04:55

So who better to try out this cool new sport than the BBC's

0:04:550:04:58

very own Mike Bushell?

0:04:580:05:00

And what's the point if you don't have the right

0:05:000:05:03

clothing for the job, hey?

0:05:030:05:04

Looking good, buddy!

0:05:040:05:07

Let's find out why people enjoy speedskating.

0:05:070:05:09

I feel like I'm part of the wind!

0:05:090:05:12

The first couple of steps you really need to be explosive,

0:05:120:05:15

really get that speed up, because then the second bit

0:05:150:05:17

you can really accelerate on and really finish your stride.

0:05:170:05:21

It's hoped that top facilities like this will encourage more people

0:05:210:05:24

to try out long-track speedskating.

0:05:240:05:27

I love your style, Mike, but maybe leave it to the professionals!

0:05:270:05:33

Last up this morning, forget fire engines -

0:05:330:05:36

this is how Dubai firefighters go into action, using

0:05:360:05:39

speedboats and jet packs.

0:05:390:05:43

This video was released by the Dubai Civil Defence Team,

0:05:430:05:45

showing off their new kit by rising above a bridge using water

0:05:450:05:48

pressure from a jet ski.

0:05:480:05:52

That's all from me, I'll be back at 4.20pm.

0:05:520:05:54

Have a great day.
