Hello, I'm Charmaine Dragun national pride on display Also tonight - Australia's to the Commonwealth Games. as the baton starts the home run when my children were born, It's something like being and proudness that's the type of feeling that I've got at the moment.

where the group was recuperating in Victoria, taking wallets, mobile phones and clothing. A father has fronted court, accused of chaining up his son. He's denied the charges of torture and deprivation of liberty, saying all he did was discipline a problem child.

Chained to a post like a dog on a leash for two days - that's what Gold Coast police are alleging this father did to his 11-year-old son last October as punishment for running away. There was a chain involved.

But it's not as sinister as it sounds. The 35-year-old man faced Southport Court today on charges of torture and deprivation of liberty. It's alleged the father of two padlocked his son to a pole to stop him leaving the caravan park at night. The boy told Juvenile Aid Bureau detectives that he'd been given only water during the 48 hours he was held captive. But the accused's defence team says it isn't so. Yes, both the charges are going to be contested. They argue that the man's actions seem far worse than they really are and that there has been an ongoing problem with discipline between the single parent and his son. The child seems to be a problem child. The incident was reported to police by the child's grandparents after the boy told them during the summer holidays. Oh, well, truth will come out.

The prosecutors didn't fight the man's application for bail on the grounds that his son is no longer in his care. The accused man was unwilling to comment on the accusations. Andrew Leahy, Ten News.

The finding into one of Australia's worst air crashes

is having ramifications for aircraft operators around the country. The Transport Safety Bureau is recommending all civil aircraft be fitted with autopilots and both pilots in 2-pilot crews be qualified for instrument approaches. The recommendations are the result of an inquiry into a crash in Far North Queensland in May last year. The Bureau said the co-pilot of the twin-engined plane was not trained in the instrument approach that was being under taken when the plane hit a hill side. And the plane didn't have an autopilot.

All 15 people on board were killed. An assurance tonight for Ford workers in Australia. Jobs won't be cut despite the news Ford is shedding 25,000 jobs and closing 14 plants in the United States. That dire move is being blamed on smaller Asian cars selling strongly in the United States on rising fuel prices. Ford Australia say the company is doing well everywhere around the world except America. The PM's stranglehold on the Senate is in danger after he dumped a National Party minister in his cabinet reshuffle. Some Nationals now want revenge, threatening to reconsider their support for the Coalition. New year, new cabinet. It does represent a very significant change. The reshuffle winners -

Queensland's Mal Brough, handed Families and Community Services and Western Australia's Julie Bishop, now Education Minister. I think I'm the 10th woman since Federation to have been appointed to Cabinet. She's replacing Brendan Nelson who has been bumped up into the Defence portfolio. Rewards for them - rejection for Nationals minister De-anne Kelly. She's been demoted to parliamentary secretary. The victim of a timely defection to the Liberals

by Nationals senator Julian McGauran, costing her party a ministerial post. Politics, as you all know, is remorselessly governed by the laws of arithmetic. His merciless maths has infuriated the Queensland Nationals, who are now reconsidering their support of the Government and how they'll vote in the House. With the Coalition clearly cracking, Deputy PM and Nationals Leader Mark Vaile is putting on a brave face.

The people of Australia can rest assured they will be well represented by the front bench. Even if it's full of Liberals, he concedes. Four more have been promoted to the outer ministry.

Bruce Bilson, Gary Nairn, Santo Santoro and Sharman Stone all handed junior posts. Andrew Robb has become a parliamentary secretary and so has Malcolm Turnbull - to the Prime Minister. As for the big names -

There will be no changes to the portfolios of Mr Abbott, Mr Costello, Mr Downer and myself. To John Howard, that means preserving experience. To Labor - No change to Costello, no change to Downer, no change to Howard. Nothing's changed. The Nationals disagree. Danielle Isdale, Ten News. A former journalist with a reputation for having a short fuse is the new West Australian premier.

Emergency workers are racing against time tonight

to find survivors after a building collapse in Kenya. At least 11 people were killed and 84 injured when the structure caved in. American Marines and Navy engineers from a nearby anti-terror unit have arrived to boost the rescue effort. Most of the victims were construction workers resting inside during a lunch-break. Women and children selling food were also injured. Tom Piotrowski joins us now from Commonwealth Securities. And a disappointing performance from Wall Street held back the local market?

What a let down. On the heels of

one of the biggest sell offs we've

seen in more than two years, the

best that the IS markets could

muster was a modest recovery. That

put investors ill at ease in the

early part of today which is part

of the reason there was such choppy

trade today. Late in the afternoon,

we saw a rally in insurance stocks.

At the same time. At the back of

investors' minds is tomorrow's

inflation report which will have a

big impact on the market putting

flesh on the bones in the near term.

And a boost for the mining sector

after good news from BHP? That's

right, they reported today that in

the six months to the end of

December, they produced record

amounts of aluminium, copper and

liquid natural gas. So the report

was generally warmly accepted

although it was short of some

analyst's expectations. But at the

end of the day, BHP shares posted a better improvement.

A bizarre twist in the debate over dangerous dogs on Queensland's Gold Coast. A council is warning residents to beware of a pooch called Princess. She's white, fluffy, and decked out in diamantes

with a pink bow, She's a pampered pooch who lives in the lap of luxury, just like a princess. The Maltese maiden lives in a Gold Coast mansion with her millionaire owners. Hello, beautiful girl. Are you a good girl?

But beware this pretty pup's killer good looks. (Growls) She allegedly savaged a big beefy security guard, biting his boots. I think it'd be difficult for her to even get over the top of the boot. Today, the victim just wouldn't bite. If you want to take up any matter, you can always speak to the Gold Coast City Council. Princess's owners say they're sceptical and are yet to see proof of the attack. I asked for pictures of the injury. He wouldn't give me any. She's a little madam, of course. Yeah, she's a little barky dog. But I can't see her ever injuring anybody. No matter how cuddly and how nice the dog looks, any unprovoked attack really has to be taken seriously. Princess is now classified a dangerous dog by the Gold Coast City Council.

That means she is no longer allowed out of the house without a muzzle, the ultimate doggy fashion 'fur' pas. We're finding it even difficult to get a muzzle to fit her. Despite council's orders, her owners won't back down. They'll do whatever it takes to clear her name, even if it runs into a legal dog fight. (Growls) Meggie Palmer, Ten News. The weather's next.

and Lindsay Davenport's dream of back-to-back Oz Opens is over. The American was knocked out by Belgian Justine Hennin-Hardenne. and dished out Plenty has been served up during the past 24 hours and Ian Cohen is there to tell us all about it.

Good evening to you. That's right,

plenty of colour and cheering today

of course ahead of the battle

between the Croatian champion, between the Croatian champion, between the Croatian champion, Lbujic and the rising star in

Lbujic and the rising star in Bagadadis. The big cheering coups

got together in Garden Square and

had a sing off before the match but

security were right on top. They

security were right on top. They had a metal canster in case there

was a flair release. But all the

was a flair release. But all the fireworks were on the court and we

start tonight with Henin Hardenne

and Lindsay Davenport. Lindsay Davenport hit Centre Court with a heavily strapped ankle, but it did little to hamper her movement. The world number one breaking Henin-Hardenne in the very first game. The 2004 champion was equal to the task, breaking back with superior footwork. That is a terrific move. But Davenport power proved the difference. The 29-year-old consolidating before taking the double break. And she has pounced on that second serve. A mistake-riddled first set falling in favour of the top seed. Henin-Hardenne raced out to a 3-0 lead in the second. Her opponent at a standstill. Beautiful touch. Davenport's response - just amazing. But the point of the set belonged to the Belgian. The 23-year-old chasing down everything to send the match into a decider. Oh, she's won the point. Henin-Hardenne moved ahead 2-0 in the third, but the American had the drop on her younger challenger, squaring the ledger. Can't get there. And just when Davenport started to seize control, another twist in the tale. Hardenne turning defence into attack and giving a Lleyton-esque cheer. Hardenne with all with the all-important break before acing ahead 5-2. The world number 6 serving it out to move into the final four.

It was a football style welcome for

the Bagdadis. He had the crowd in

the Bagdadis. He had the crowd in his corner but the first blow was

his corner but the first blow was by Lbujic. The match running on

serve after an epic fifth game.

Bagdadis earning a rousing

reception for every big winner. You know, I felt like I started off really well. I felt I was being consistent and yet in control of most of the rallies in the first set. You know, I just felt like a couple quick games early in the second set gave away some points and gave her some confidence and then either she started the ball better and it just felt like I slightly got away from my game plan.

But now to one of the big talking

points here at Melbourne Park. As

well as today's action, there's

been plenty of discussion about the

comepts from Tommy Haas. And

feeling that everyone including

the commentators was on Roger Federer's side. After beating Roger Federer at Kooyong this month

and giving him a 5-set scare last night, Tommy Haas says he doesn't know what all the fuss is about the world number one. The German taking aim at commentator Jim Courier,

who described the Swiss maestro as, "The greatest of all time". If you ask Jim Courier, that guy has his tongue up his ass -

the whole time when you actually listen to him commentating

or listening to him talking about Roger Federer, it makes me sick. Centre court threw up a one-sided match today - Fabrice Santoro outclassed by David Nalbandian. Great lob. The fourth seed peeled off 14 straight games to steamroll through the last two sets. A confident Nalbandian cruising into the semis for the first time in Melbourne. I didn't spend a lot of time on court today, so I'm happy for that. I'm happy because I played very good. Russia's top two players squared off in the first of the women's quarters, Nadia Petrova attacking Maria Sharapova early. But unforced errors cost her the first set. The fourth seed screaming her way into the last four. CHEERING I definitely wasn't serving as well as I like to but game-wise, um, she's a very tricky opponent, she stays way behind the baseline, and, um, gets a lot of balls back so, the main thing was just to be patient. And I think I did what needed to be done today.

Now to tomorrow's action and it's

certainly going to be a big day for

the Swiss with Roger Federer,

the Swiss with Roger Federer, Martina Hingis and also Schneider

so a big day for the little Swiss

so a big day for the little Swiss country and we'll have all of the

details right here on 'Sport's Tonight'. It's hardly surprising given his call-up to the Australian one-day side, but batsmen Brad Hodge has thrown his support behind the controversial player rotation policy. Coming off a Twenty20 century, Hodge replaces skipper Ricky Ponting who is resting for an unspecified period. Adelaide fans disappointed by Ponting's no show, but Hodge says he has more than earned a spell. We were just joking about it before that even the PM had a few weeks off over Christmas, while Ricky was busy making a century in Melbourne and a century innings in Sydney. Thursday's match against Sri Lanka is a sell out. South Africa has kept its finals hopes alive in the VB one-day series.

The Proteas knocking off Sri Lanka in a tight one at the Adelaide Oval tonight. The South Africans desperately needed the win but they lacked urgency. Sri Lanka's quicks restricted the scoring while the spinners snared the wickets.

COMMENTATOR: Brilliant from Sangakarra and Sangakarra likes it. Graeme Smith failing to ground his foot, out for a sluggish 28. South Africa 1/72 in the 19th over.
