The Federal Government say it is

doing everything it can to bring

home an Australian boy arrested in

Bali for an alleged drug possession.

Good morning. I m Ron Wilson. I am

Tim Webster. Welcome to Ten's Early

News. Tributes for Steve Jobs have

continued to pour in as the world

mourns the createtive genius in

Apple. In sport, former Bulldog

Ryan Tandy facing a life ban from

the NRL after being found guilty of

(CHEERING) match-fixing.

And in finance, Apple feels the

loss of its founder - shares in the

company fell on the news of his

today's death. Here is a brief check of

today's weather - Clearer skis for South

South Australia and showers and a

few storms for southern WA.

A 14-year-old Australian boy is

spending his third night in custody

at Police Headquarters in Denpasar

in Bali of allegedly being caught

with drugs while on holiday. Ten

reporter Michael Bennett is outside

the police station where the boy is

being hell and he joins us now.

Michael, what is the Australian

Government doing to help the boy

and his family? Officials have

visited the teenager his parents

yesterday. It is expected they will

go back again today and again offer

assistance, but at this stage, it

is unclear what they can do to help

his situation. Now, as you said,

night the NSW teen is spending his third

night in the Denpasar Police

Headquarters behind me after being

arrested with what is alleged to be

3.5 grams of marijuana holidaying

friends. here in Bali with his parents and

friends. We understand he was

detained in Kuta after allegedly

buying the drugs off a local man

for around $25. Now, he hasn't been

charged with any drug offences at

this stage, but if he is charged,

he faces a 12-year maximum under

Indonesian tough drug laws. Code

spoke last night and vowed that the

Australian Government would do all

they can to help the young man. My

heart goes out to the parents. I am

sure many Australians feel exactly

the same. We will do all within our

power to support them and to get

this young fella back home. Michael,

this jail where the young bloke is

being held is being described vair usely

to usely as a "hellhole". Are we able

to determine how he is coping?

There? Well, we've had varied

reports about his state of mind.

From what we understand, medical

staff have been called in to assess

him. Reports are coming out

yesterday were saying that he was

depressed, understandably stressed

and constantly in tears. He's been

begging with officials to release

him. What is worrying is his

parents who have been with him most

of the time and the young man will

have to face the fact, if he is

charged, he will be tried as an

adult because there is no juvenile

justice system here in Indonesia.

That effectively means he will be

tried or face the same you twirl

process as convicted drug smuggler

like Schapelle Corby and the Bali

nine. Ron, we will have more on

this story later the bulletin.

Michael, thank you. Michael Bennett

reporting from Denpasar. People

from all walks of life have been

paying their respect to Apple

founder Steve Jobs, who lost his

battle with pancreatic cancer

called yesterday. US President Barak Obama

called him a "visionary", while

Apple says they have lost an

amazing man.

a NEWSREEL: Good morning. Remembering

a genius. America is mourning its greatest visionary. In many

different ways, people are paying

their own tribute to a man, they

lives. (APPLAUSE) say, had a real impact on their

This is the last time that the

world saw Steve Jobs four months

ago. For years, his product

launches have been cultural events

that have changed the way that we

work and play. This is awesome technology. You won't believe it

is until you hold it in your hands. It

is breathtaking. Apple has altered

how people communicate, how we

listen to music, how we watch video.

More significantly, Steve Jobs has

transformed how we interact with

technology. What a classic Silicon

Valley story it was. Jobs dropped

out of college and with Steve

Wozniak set up a workshop in his

garage. We had no business

experience. We are like a million

about young people When are so excited

about the future they might have

some day in business, making

something just out of their ideas -

that is what we were. Long ill with

pancreatic cancer, but helped by a

liver transplant, Steve Jobs urged

students not to follow the conventional route in life.

Ufrpblgts death is the destination

we all share. No-one has ever

escaped it. That is as it should be

because death is very likely the

single best invention of life. If

life's change agent, it clears out

the old to make way for the new.

Qantas says thousands of passengers

will still experience delays,

despite the unions calling off

today's strike action. The airline

says the decision has come too late

and around 5,700 passengers will be

affected by delayed flights and

cancellations. The unions will

still go ahead with strick action

next Thursday after the school

holidays have ended. Meanwhile,

Fairfax have revealed that Qantas boss Joyce gist Joyce received boss

another threat just hours after he

went public with the first one. It

has been a decade of begins for the

Australian population, according to

the latest breast study. We arewell

and more likely to be employed than

we were a decade ago. The only

losses were in terms of our

productivity, poorer air quality

and by yes diversity. The study

also found that rental

affordability for low-income

families has not improved over the

past 10 years. The latest talk fest

in Canberra has focused on creating

and protecting Australian jobs, but

the stability of the Prime

Minister's own job has come no

question with a former Labor power

breaker outing Alan Griffin and

Mark Bishop as doing the numbers

want for Kevin Rudd. And then if you

want to go on to money, have a go

in the meantime, she is doing a

fabulous job of undermining herself.

I will let the ex-Labor politicians

and the commentators all chatser

about that. The focus here is on

Australian jobs. Both of the outed

backbenchers declined to comment.

Hundreds of Afghans have rallied in

Kabul on the eve of the anniversary

of the US-led war. Around 300 men

and women gathered with placards and women gathered with placards

condemning the death of the

civilians and demanding an

immediate pull-out of men troops.

They denounced Hamid Karzai as a

puppet to Washington. The rally

lasted around three hours and

burned despite an American flag being

burned in the street, it ended

peacefully. A Swedish poet has won the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Tomas Transtromer is the country's

most famous living poet. It is the

first time in 30 years the Swedish

Academy, which decides who will be

the laureate has picked a Swede.

The judges say the 80-year-old won

because he gives the world fresh access to reality.

Sports news and it is likely former

Bulldog Ryan Tandy has played his

last game of NRL with league boss

David Gallop stating he will impose

life bans on anyone convicted of

match-fixing. Tandy was yesterday

fined $4,000 and put on a 12 month

good behavior bond after being

found guilty of match-fixing. The

magistrate said it was clear there

was a plan to manipulate the last

scoring points of last year's Bulldogs-Cowboys' clash.

Ryan, you were not involved in

this? Will you pay the fine? There

will be an appeal. Wal call' winger

You are with Ten's Early News. A

NSW schoolboy could be facing 12

juniors in an Indonesian prison

after being arrested in Bali on

drugs charges. He is in place

custody in Denpasar, being visited

by Australian consular officials.

This family holiday in Bali has

ended with a teenage boy in a jail

cell. The 14-year-old from

Newcastle was on holiday with his

parents and a friend. On Tuesday,

he was arrested by Indonesian

police for allegedly purchasing a

few grams of marijuana, the

equivalent of Australian $25. It is believed

believed the boy is the youngest Australian

Australian to be arrested in

Indonesia, a country known for the

hardline it takes against drugs.

The maximum penalty for possession

is 12 years' in prison. It is

unknown if the boy's age will be

taken into account when he faces

the Indonesian justice system.

There is no Children's Court and if

he is convicted, he could be placed

in an adult prison. The main one in

Bali is home to the Bali nine and

Schapelle Corby. Morning minister

Kevin Rudd has directed the embassy

to make this case their top prirtty

to ensure the boy is released as

soon as possible. I think if you

put yourself in the position of

being a mum or a dad with a 14-

year-old who has got themselves

caught up in this sort of situation,

your heart would go out to the

parents. A 30-year-old Brisbane man

has had a lucky escape after his

car landed upside down on a railway

platform. The man was driving in

wet weather around 11:30 last night when

when he lost control, smashing

through a fence and rolling down an

embankment before coming to rest

upside down on the platform. Part

of the car was left hanging over

the side of the platform.

It was extremely lucky for him and

for any other potential commuters

that were in the area at the time.

Lucky nobody was seriously injured.

The driver and soul occupant of the

car suffered a fractured arm and

taken to Princess Alexandra

Hospital. There were no trains at

the time of the accident. A smash

between a car and a truck has

killed one hand and left another

seriously injured in central NSW.

The Nissan and truck collided head-

on just before 6pm. Emergency crews

arrived to find that a young male

passenger in the car had died while

the male driver was airlifted to

Nepean Hospital with head and chest

injuries. The truck driver skipped

unharmed and was taken for blood

are preparing a case for the

Coroner. There have been tough

questions during the flood inquiry.

CGU executive Peter Harmer admitted

he misled the woman who had taken her

her criticism of the insurance company

company to the media.

Insurance giant CGU handled 5,500

claims after January's floods. 8

were rejected. The focus ofed in

inquiry questioning to CGU boss

Peter Harmer remains on why he

became personally involved in just one claim.

REPORTER: Did youive accuse Miss

Doyle of misleading conduct? No, I

did not. He is accused of m leading

flood victim Sally Doyle after she

publicly protested outside the

inSeanerer's headquarters in Brisbane. (CHANTING)

Shame on you. Miss Doyle testified

she received a phone call from Mr

Harmer where he told her she had

tape recordings of her phone call

was the insurer and that he knew

she had misled the insurer. Now

this. The fact that we set up a

claims team on a different floor to

cope with the deluge I didn't

realise that team wasn't plugged in to

to to tell leftny. He's denyed any

wrong do. When Miss Doyle suggested

that her experience hadn't been all

that wonderful I wanted first-hand

an account to she if there were

things we cull improve. The flood

inquiry will move to Bundaburg next

week. A final report is expected in

February next year.

A happy workplace is a productive

one, court to research presented at

the Government's research forum.

The study found that companys with

strong leadership and a positive

work culture have 12% higher

productivity levels and are more

profitable than their less

progresssive peers. Chris Evans

says it is clear from this research

that the key to increasing

productivity comes from investing

in people. The US President has

sympathiseed with anti-Wall Street

protesters in New York. Barak Obama

says demonstrate tors are just

expressing the American public's

and venting their frustration with

the economy. Thousands have marched on

scenes in South Korea's capital of

Seoul. Thousands of farmers protested against free trade deal

to Steve Jobs's death? Perhaps pro

Well, Alexis, Apple did regain some

ran the company from 1997 until he

stepped down six weeks ago in

addition to being the company's co-

founder. The stock is down right

few more than 1% as we near the

close. There are fears that Apple

cull lose its competitive edge

without Steve Jobs, Alexis - is

that justified? Well, Steve Jobs

hand pick his successor Tim Cook,

so he obviously believed Cook was

the right person for the job. Steve

Jobs has also not been a huge part

of the day-to-day operations at Apple

Apple for quite some Tim new bus of his

his illness, so he basically has

set the company up as he can for

success in his absence. We can't

argue that many of Apple's most

successful inventions were the

Britain child of job Jobs and it

will be hard, if not impossible, to

replace that sort of genius in the tech

tech world. Absolutely. In other

world the European markets were

unchanged overnight. How did the

market react to that? That's right.

They decided to keep interest rates

on hold despite an economic slowdown. Certainly the markets

would have liked to have seen them

cut rates, but what I think Wall

Street is really reacting to is

news that the European central

banks are offering new emergency

loans to help them through the debt

crisis. The fear has been all along

if Greece defaults on its debt many European

European banks that hold what debt

could be crushed. Many loans by the

give investors comfort. Thank you.

he was caught with 3.5 grams of

marijuana after having a massage in

Kuta, but is yet to be charged with

any drug offences. The NSW team is

the youngest Australian to ever be

detained for drug offences here in

have Bali. The Australian Government

have vowed to deall they can to

bring him home. Sources have told

us that the young man is stressed

crying. They have also asked for

medical staff to assess his frame

of mind. Under the tough drug laws

here in Indonesia, he face as 12-

year maximum jail term if he is

charged and convicted. He will be

tried as an adult because there is

no juvenile justice system here if

will face the shame judicial

process as convicted drug smugglers

But, as I Sid, the 14-year-old is

yet to be charged with any drug

offences at this stage. His family

The world is continuing to mourn The world is continuing to mourn

the death of Apple founder Steve

pancreatic cancer. Ten's Kathryn

Morgan is outside Apple

headquarters in Capello in

California and she joins us now

live. Kath, tributes have been

pouring in day and night for Steve

Jobs. Well, Ron, it is sort of back

to business as usual this morning,

but it was a very different story

last night where throngs of people

braved a very cold and dreary

evening and some even came dressed

in their pyjamas and slippers,

would you believe. They told me

they just wanted to come here to

the place that really symbolises

everything that Steve Jobs has

achieved. Now, they were play yeses

and just fans of Apple products and

they said they felt the need to pay

their respects to a man who they believe

believe really has changed their

lives. Just a sense of loss and

that loss was independent for the that loss was independent for the

person - I think it was more -- was

not for the person - I think it was

more for the vision. Steve Jobs

lives on every day in the things

that I use on a daily basis. So,

Ron, people are actually likening

Steve Jobs's death to that of John

Lennon, Elvis Presley before him.

There is that immense sense of loss

resonated and of course his death has

resonated across the world where

tributes are being held at a number

of Apple stores. The most fitting

tribute, a very high-tech tribute,

is being held in Tokyo where

instead of candles, people are

actually using their candle appears

on their iPhones to hold a candle

light vigil. A very fitting tribute

to Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs has

definitely left the building. Thank

you. Strike action has been called

off for airlines. 150 passengers

would have been affected by

a push for big companies to buy

mining companies risk being named

amount of locally produced products

and they could also face having

their tariff concessions reduced or

completely again for imported

material. As mentioned this, is

just what the unions wanted and the

Prime Minister says she will set up

a task force but it should be

mentioned that this only applies to

companies bidding for company

contracts worth more than $2

billion. Let's have a listen to the

Prime Minister now. This is all

about giving Australian business

the fair go that it deserves. If

you want Australian taxpayers'

dollars, then you have to give

Australian businesses a fair chance

to compete for work. New, Ron, Tony

Abbott surprisingly likes this idea,

NSW schoolboy could be facing 12

years in an Indonesian prison after

being arrested in Bali on drugs

charges. He is in place custody in

Denpasar being visited by

Australian consular officials. A

luxury family holiday in Bali has

ended with a teenage boy in a Jill

cell. The 14-year-old from

Newcastle was on holiday with his

parents and a friend. On Tuesday he

was arrested by Indonesian police

for allegedly purchasing a few

grams of marijuana, the equivalent

of US $25. It is believed the boy

is the youngest Australian to be

arrested in understood ya, a

Indonesia, a country known for the

hardline they take on drugs. The

maximum sentence is 12 years' in

prison. It is unknown if the boy's

age will be taken into account when

he faces the Indonesian justice

system. There is no Children's

Court. If he is convicted he could

be placed in an adult prison.

Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd has

directed Australia's embassy in

Indonesia to make this case their

top priority, to ensure the boy is

released as soon as possible. I

think if you put yourself in the

position of being a mum or a dad

with a 14-year-old who is - who has

got themselves caught up in this

sort of situation, your heart would

go out to the parents.

A 30-year-old Brisbane man has had

a lucky escape after his car landed

upside down on a railway platform.

The man was driving in ret weather

around 11:30 last night when he

lost control smashing through a

fence and rolling down an

embankment before coming to rest

upside down on the platform. Part

of the car was left hanging over

the side of the platform. It was

extremely lucky for him and for any

other potential commuters that were

in the area at the time that nobody

was seriously injured. The driver

and sole occupant of the car

suffered a fractured arm and was

taken to the Princess Alexandra

Hospital. There were no trains at

the station at the time of the

accident. It is foreed job also go

will blow-out waiting lists. The

news comes a day after a doctor has

spoken out saying he fears he will

be sued for inadequate care because

the hospital is overwhelmed. CGU

executive Peter Harmer is being

sued and admitted he misled the

woman who had taken his the case to

the media. CGU dealt with 5, 500

claims during on's floods. 639 of

those were rejected. The focus of

flood inquiry questioning to CGU boss

boss Peter Harmer remains on why he

became personally involved in just one claim.

REPORTER: Did you ever accuse Miss

Doyle of misleading conduct? No, I did

did not. He is accused of

misleading Sally Doyle after she

publicly protested outside the

insurer's headquarters in February. (CHANTING)

Shame on you CGU. Miss Doyle

testified to the flood inquiry she

had received a phone call from Mr

Harmer where he told her he had

tape recordings of her

conversations with the insurer and

that he knew she had misled the

media. But now this... Ordinarily,

all of our incoming claims calls

are recorded. The fact that we set

up a claims team on a different

floor to cope with the deluge I floor to cope with the deluge I

didn't realise that team wasn't

plugged in to tell leftny. He

denied any wrong-doing. When Miss denied any wrong-doing. When Miss

Doyle's article in 'The Courier- Doyle's article in 'The Courier-

Mail' suggested that her experience

hadn't been all that wonderful, I

wanted to get first-hand from her

an account to see if there were

things we could improve. The flood

inquiry will move to Bundaburg next

week. A final report is expected in

February next year. Libya's ousted dictator good

Flags at Apple headquarters are

flying at half most to honour the

company's co-founder Steve Jobs.

Condolences are coming in on tweets

and news alerts, through iPhones,

iPads and computers.

Flowers and tributes pile up

outside Apple stores in New York

and across the country at Apple's

headquarters at Capello California,

flags are at half most, one for

America, one for California and one

for Apple. Reaction to Jobs's death

has been widespread and for Mr

Personal. Steve Jobs to me wasn't

just the man who created iPad and

iPhone, et cetera. It was a man who

inspired me by the way he lived.

Apple products have become part of

people's everyday life for millions.

He continues to transform society.

Has the iPhone changed your life in

Well, I believe it has. I can do

what ever I want in the palm of my

hand. Here in New York's flagship

store, flowers and messages to Jobs

adorn the steps and people have

come from all over to pay their

respects. What set Apple apart from

the competition was job job's

ability to talk complay Kayed

technology and simply any it for

the average person. It is fitting

that people learnt of Jobs's death

through products that he invented.

In sport, driver also be hoping for

dryer conditions when action gets

under way at Mount Panorama later

this morning. Yesterday's rainfall

forced them to cancel a practice session.

It is the roar from the mountain V8

fans have waited 12 months to hear.

The opening 50-minute practise

session fuelling the thirst for

thins to come. As Will Davidson

revved up his Falcon along the

strait... Last year's winner Craig

lounges was midfield in the third

session, Mark Skaife fourth fastest

in the coast driver's only second

session. Former Bathurst winner

Garth Stander is expected to have

his Holden among the leading

contenders, but this session was

dominated by Fords. Tim Slade

topped the time sheet ahead of

Shane Van Gisburgen and James

Moffat. I was obviously reasonably

good to be up the pointy end. I was

fortunate not to have any traffic

or anything like that. A persistent

squirrel is becoming a mayor league

pest during an American baseball pest during an American baseball

series in St Louis. This time the

rodent turned dare-devil running through

through the mound as the ball was being pitched.

COMMENTATOR: There is a squirrel

that ran right in front of home

plate. We saw the squirrel yesterday

yesterday and now he is back.

Obviously for tickets for each of

the first two games here in St

Louis. You've got to love it. It is

suspected the same squirrel caused

chaos the previous day and it is

driving the players nuts! St Louis

went down to bet Philadelphia 5-3, levelling the series 2-all.

Apple shares dipped slightly at the

opening of the US market overnight.

It did rebound a bit as markets

reacted to the death of job Jobs. reacted to the death of job Jobs.

How much ground have Apple shares

made up this morning, mate? They

have made up a little bit. They are

o still trading down about two-thirds

o f a per cent. The rest of the US

market is up in excess of 1% and

what that really illustrates to me

is how short-term some investors

are. Mr Jobs was not the only one

who was behint inventing friendly-

to-s you little gadgets and it is

not as if a bunch of charities have

been dumping stock because he

doesn't appear to have had the same

ideals as Mr Gates or Mr Buffett

for this matter. You would have to

be a bit of a get to spit out a

apple given the man is in longer

there. Our market had a very good

day yesterday. Can you make it two

in a row today? I think we might be able

able to, although maybe not quite

as strong. Mr Value was whipped on

to the market yesterday than we

have had in almost three years.

Given the Europeans seemed to be

more cord nated in their approach

to settling their debt problems, we

have seen markets across the Northern Hemisphere substantially

higher overnight. They should play

heavily into our market and we will

go into the weekend with some nice

gains, I think. Thank you. James Rosenborg at Macquarie Private

You are dead right. A check of the weather before we go

For a look at what the weekend

weather has in store for us, let's

go to Josh Holt at the Weather

likely Channel. Josh, is the weather

likely to get any better? It

certainly has been a wet week

across the nation, Ron. We have

seen extraordinary amounts of rain

into the gauges across areas of

yesterday, NSW and Victoria and

even South Australia, not to

mention areas o f the wheatbelt

earlier this week thanks to severe

thunderstorms. Let's check out the

big picture over the next couple of

days. The weekend is fast

approaching. Relatively lit today

in NSW and Victoria, the showers.

The shower also build especially

for the south-east and it will,

through this main weather system. A

cold front sweeping through areas

of South Australia, Victoria, NSW,

delivering bursts of rain and this

will be backed up by a second

system on Monday, tracking again

through the south-eastern part of

the country. Having a closer look

at NSW, we know that Bathurst is in

full swing this weekend for

practice today. Just the odd shower

remaining. We are expecting the

showers to last no Saturday morning

before theydary up in the afternoon.

On Sunday, we think at this stage,

90% of the race should remain dry,

but this system, the second one

pushing through on screen, may

affect the race late in the day. It

will be touch-and-go. We will have

to wait and see how that pans out.

The other main feature of the two

fronts moving over the southern

part of the country will be the

drop in temperatures, special will

I for Adelaide, Melbourne Hobart.

We will see maximum temperatures in

the mid-teens for all capital

cities and this includes the ACT

and Canberra.. Having a look at the big

big picture over the next couple of

days, temperatures dropping. That

is the main thin. Alo long with

showers. Tops of 17 degrees on

Sunday. Make the most of Saturday.

Moving up to Brisbane this weekend,

storms Saturday, but a better day

for you on Sunday with a top of 27

and, look, I know that Bathurst is

on this weekend, but if you have a

need for speed, my advice is to hit

Black the Caulfield racetrack and watch

Black Caviar. She is more like a

V12. Thank you. The Government says

they are doing everything they can

to bring home a 14-year-old

Australian boy arrested in Bali for

an alleged drug possession. The

world mourns the creative genius

Brisbane behind Apple. After 30-year-old

Brisbane man had a lucky escape

after his car landed upside down on

a railway platform. That is it for
