(CNN)Happy Monday. We hope you took some time this weekend to relax and decompress. Now, back to it. Here's what you need to know to Get Up to Speed and Out the Door.

1. Presidential transition

The Donald Trump White House is starting to take shape. Reince Priebus will be his Chief of Staff and Steven Bannon his chief strategist. Also, Trump softened on some of his harshest promises: Obamacare? Eh, parts of it are okay. The wall? Some of it may be a fence. Oh, and no deportation force.

    2. Presidential backlash

    The first weekend of a Trump America brought even more protests nationwide. One person was shot and 71 arrested in Portland, but otherwise they have been peaceful. Sadly, the racist attacks continue, prompting Donald Trump to tell his supporters to "stop it."

    3. South Korea

    South Korea's having presidential drama of its own. Hundreds of thousands took to the streets to rail against Park Geun-hye. They want her gone because she shared classified information with a confidante who a) doesn't have security clearance, and b) may be using her access to Park to make money.

    4. Colombia

    Let's try this again, shall we? Colombia's government has signed a revised peace deal with FARC. You may remember that voters shut down the previous deal because they wanted the rebel group punished for its crimes. The new deal requires FARC to pay reparations to victims.

    5. New Zealand

    A huge quake struck New Zealand this morning, killing at least 2 and leaving damage the country's president said may cost billions to repair. There was a small tsunami, too, but the region has since been given the all-clear. A quake in 2011 killed 185 there, so citizens were rightly freaked out today.
