have a good reception for Apple's

new gadget. But first tonight,

emergency surgery for Kevin Rudd.

The former Prime Minister is in a

Brisbane hospital tonight after

doctors ordered an immediate

operation. Suffering intense

abdominal pain, Kevin Rudd was abdominal pain, Kevin Rudd was

admitted to Brisbane's Hospital

this afternoon and prepped for

surgery to remove his gall bladder.

We would obviously wish him well

and a speedy recovery in the best

Tony Abbott sent his own best

wishes. He expects to be back in

action next week. He will campaign

for Labor anywhere in Australia as

required by the Prime Minister.

That had buried the look of an

orange -- her olive branch. He is

prepared to campaign more broadly

and I welcome that. Labour needs a

truce after Mark Latham accused him

of cowardice. Kevin Rudd it denies

the leaking. Whatever the truth,

Labor focus groups are showing that

is it starting to her at the party.

Another former MP is trying a

comeback. For the one-time Democrat

Cheryl Curno will stand as an

independent for the Senate in NSW.

Most of all I care about our

opportunity as a nation to have

complex grown-up conversations

without everything being

trivialised. She will run on a

recycled Democrats slogan. We are

seen no sign of his wife, Theresa,

or other family members but she has

She will have some idea of the sort

campaign trail early next week.

Thank you. The kiss of life could

be facing the kiss of death. A new

study has found a note -- most

people don't know mouth-to-mouth

and there's a simple method that is

just as effective.

This could be all it takes to save

someone's life. One, two, three,

four. A major international study

has found chest compressions are

just as affective as mouth-to-mouth

in cardiac arrest cases if the

rescuer has had no resuscitation

training. Do something rather than

to do nothing and the something

would be chest compressions.

Australian CPR standards will soon

receive the biggest overhaul in

years to reflect the study's

findings. There'll be a major

change in that we'll be advising

people that if they discover

someone collapsed on the street for

example to give compression only

CPR. First aid students say the

thought of giving a stranger mouth-

to-mouth can be off-putting. I

definitely have issues with putting

my mouth on somebody's mouth. There

are so many different ways of

transmitting disease. Only 8% of

Australians have first aid training

but St John says you can't cause

serious harm to someone by

attempting resuscitation. If you do

nothing, the patient might die, so

it's preferable to do something.

The new CPR guidelines are expected

to be released in November.

for a silver bowl at have to be a

cure, this is not a cure but it is

a fantastic treatment. There is a

deadly warning on homeopathic

treatment. A coroner has found that

she took bad advice and paid with

her life. This could be all it

takes to save someone's life. One,

two, three, four. By the time

Penelope Dingle had emergency

surgery eight months after being

diagnosed with rectal cancer, it

was too late. She'd previously

relied on the remedies of homeopath

Francine Scrayen in the belief they

would cure her cancer. Today, in a

105 page document, Coroner Alastair

Hope slammed Mrs Scrayen's

involvement... Saying she was not a competent health professional...

Had minimal medical knowledge and

had given dangerous advice. He

accepted the homeopath had

convinced Penelope she could cure

the disease and said Mrs Scrayen's

advice not to have surgery was an

outrageous thing to do. Alastair Hope said Penelope's toxicologist

husband Peter Dingle had been a

victim of his own misinformation

and hadn't taken action to separate

his wife from Mrs Scrayen's

influence or to save her from the

terrible pain. The Coroner said

Peter Dingle was active in the

decision making process and his

support of and assistance in the

homeopathic treatment contributed

to reducing Penelope's chance of

survival. But he said ultimately, survival. But he said ultimately,

the decisions were Penelope's and

they'd sadly been based on

misinformation. While both Francine

Scrayen and Peter Dingle sat

through much of the inquest,

neither was at court today. Are you neither was at court today. Are you

disappointed Francine and Peter

aren't here to hear what the aren't here to hear what the

coroner had to say? That's their

decision, really don't have any

comment to make about that. Mr Hope

recommended both the State and

Federal Health departments review

legislation on alternative medicine

to ensure there are no mixed messages for vulnerable patients.

He also raised concerns about two

of Penelope's doctors, Igor

Tabrizian and William Barnes,

saying he would refer their

evidence to the Medical Board. We

would like to say that we're very

satisfied with the process of

damning report on Australia's worst

bushfire disaster. Plus the sale of

the iPhone, Apple's supporters

ringing registers at midnight.

A French mother has confessed to

killing her eight newborn babies

over two decades and burying their

bodies around her properties.

Incredibly, authorities say her

husband had no idea. Eight candles

for eight babies killed within

minutes of being born. 47-year-old

Dominic is their mother. She has

confessed to suffocating her

newborns and disposing of them in

plastic bags. Two corpses were

found buried at her parents' old

home, when the new owners began to

dig a pool., Six more were

discovered at her current address,

in a fuel tank in the garage.

Officials say her unsuspecting

husband feels like the sky has

fallen in. He has said, he was not

aware she was pregnant. She has a

very large body which may explain

why he did not know she was

pregnant and he also said he had no

knowledge that his wife was

disposing of the newborns.

Maybe you could hide one pregnancy,

but eight? The nursing assistant

had to unborn babies. For some

women, the whole idea of pregnancy

and the changes and adaptations

that are required up to

overwhelming and they going to the

process of denying reality. But for

Dominic Cottrez, there is no more

denial. Her horrific secret is out

and she's facing extensive

psychiatric testing and possibly

life imprisonment. Politicians have

been accused of scoring cheap

points over Australia's worst

natural disaster. With Teddy in tow,

in large bolts as the despair of

losing his hilltop paradise is on

par with the agony of wading

through the red tape of rebuilding.

They keep moving the goalposts on

us. He says that it is just one

example of how the Government has

let down the survivors 19 months on.

They just can't get the decisions

and nothing is happening on the

tour - just the ground. There was a

scathing attack on the Liberal

leader. He wants to play grubby

politics with people who have been

adversely affected by the bull --

Bush fires. The Government says

that it will examine the final

report closely before responding.

Cars than centres will remain open

tomorrow in bushfire affected

regions to help survivors revisit

the tragedy. It is only when they

have got stable accommodation under

certain to sail down -- settled down.

To the Macquarie finance

: Reception glitches with Apple's

iPhone have not stop people queuing

to get one. Phone companies have

gone to great expense to hype the

launch across the country. Waiting

hours in line for the latest iPhone

takes stamina and these to sort so

created by Master chefs were a help.

For some customers, a nightclub. Of

Rowland to perform. This has been a

phenomenon. The things that this

phone can do is brilliant. He

He would say that. All the Telco

has have enjoyed a resurgence with

the iPhone. This also brings with

it more scrutiny for Apple. What is

remarkable is that with even in bad

publicity about the reason product,

there has been largely ignored by

those people. It may have been

played by a reception issues But

even not know it here. People are

always going to bring down good

things and the problems are so

minor, it is a non-issue. This is

the first time in 20 years that

there has been a well publicised

issue with one of their products so

people are just willing to say it

is not a problem if I use it in a

certain way or use a bumper. Supply

the find is limited, meaning many

will have to wait. It is telling

but the simple act of buying a

phone for are telling few is worth

it. No matter who wins the federal

election, one party stands to make

history with the Greens poised to

Secure the balance of power and the

Senate. But the Coalition warns

that the green change could come at

a cost. Bob Brown has every reason

to be happy. And thus predict his

party will win the balance of power

in the Senate, giving it major

influence in shaping legislation.

Bob! You're a Shiro! You are as

well! People out there know in

middle Australia that we're

offering a secure a future when the

big parties and even talking about

it. The polls put support for the

Greens at around 10% and the party

could make history by winning its

first House of Representatives seat

haven't been better than they are

now. Adam, the software developer,

is tipped to hold a seat for the is tipped to hold a seat for the

first time in years. I think most

people are disappointed. His rivals

say the degrees voters were wasted

Government that you can do what the

people in the inner-city ones. Once

predominantly working-class, the

suburbs are now much more diverse

and many voters here at this is it --

-- dissatisfied with what the major

parties have on offer. I don't

think the other parties offer

revision for Australia that I agree

with. But the Coalition says that

voters should question the come --

the preferences deal. I think Bob

Brown is a lot of scrutiny. That is

what he is getting. Next, claims

that crucial informants will die

because of internet leaks.

70 years on and heading for a world record.

The Pentagon claims that the lives

of crucial war informants have been

put at risk in Afghanistan by the

historic intelligence leak. But at

the website's Australian founder

has fired back. The Pentagon says

it will take days if not weeks to

assess the damage caused by what

has already been posted on the

website. Robert Gibson is that

people's lives have been put into

danger. If somebody is co-operating

with the Federal Government and

their name is listed in an action

report, I don't think it is a

stretch to believe that they could

potentially be bought a group or an

end dividual at potential risk. US

officials assumed that they were

Panthers arrest their 3-game slide?

Hi. I'm Scott MacKinnon and Welcome

to Toyota Sports Tonight. We'll go

around the grounds shortly, and

we'll cross the codes.

The Wallabies get set for a Bledisloe Battle.

The Boomers slay Slovenia in China.

And our golfers get their groove on.

And the plays of the week. We've harnessed it all.

Sports Tonight. There's been a big

upset in the AFL tonight. Essendon

stunning St Kilda, defeating the

Saints for the third time in a row.

Already looking bruised before the

first bounce, the Saints copped a

bomber battering in the opening quarter.

Battered and bruised then became

bloodied in a 7-goal blitz. And

there was more in the second.

It took a super snap from the

Saints skipper Riewoldt to stem the

flow but it was only momentary

relief. The half-time margin a

shock 37 points. Such was its shock 37 points. Such was its

dominance, Essendon almost took

pity on St Kilda in the third term.

But his team-mate Hardingham made

no such mistakes, he kicked two in

a row, and it was the Saint coach's

turn to lose it. A late double from

the Saints reduced the margin to 36

at the final break. Before at the final break. Before

Schneider gave them some hope early

in the last. A brilliant

performance from the Bombers.

The Saints never recovered from

that slow start - they now have

just a draw from their past three matches.

Brisbane coach Michael Voss has

thrown his support behind controversial forward Brendan

Fevola. Nathan Templeton joins us

now - Nathan, once again, the focus

is on Fev for all the wrong reasons.

Yes, Scotty, this time it's for his

lack of form. After such a

promising start to the season for

both Fevola and the club, things

have gone a bit pear shaped for the

Lions. Fev has been carrying

injuries all year, the goals have

dried up and the questions about

his spot in the side keep coming.

No, I think it's time to draw a

line in the sand and sort of say

Fev is part of our team and we need

to stop singling him out. So from

my end, we've got to make sure we

support all our players. And Vossy

wasn't his only supporter today.

How are you going Fevo? That's good.

Good, mate, good. But when asked

whether Fev has the full support of

his team-mates, the coach was less

convincing. I would have thought so.

Former Saints Xavier Clarke will

play his first game with the Lions

against Melbourne at the Gabba

tomorrow night. Collingwood fan

favourite Leon Davis will play his

200th match against Carlton

tomorrow - the first indigenous

Magpie to reach the milestone. I

take the good with the bed.

Unfortunately much of the bad has

come in finals and Neon Leon can't

wait to make amends in September.

People will say what they play,

they have the right to say whatever

they want. Key defender Simon

Prestigiacomo injured his groin at

training today and will be replaced

by Nathan Brown. While Brad Dick's

season is over after news he needs

a shoulder reconstruction.. And the

farewell tour has begun for Paul

Roos, the outgoing swans coach

today attending a tribute lunch,

including messages from some

special guests. Everytime I was

down or when things weren't going

well in the last 7 years when I was

number one in the world, many times

I thought of you and thought, "Do

it like Roosy", and I was able to

do it. Thanks so much. I want to

thank you for early on in both our

careers when you advised me to

question a lot of calls. Yes. Roosy

is a very influential and well-

connected man, Scotty. BUNNIEs

while Souths came out with plenty

of heat, it was the Dogs that took

the early lead.

And despite a pair of howlers from

the general, the boys from Belmore

doubled their lead through Steve

Turner. The news got worse for

Souths when Beau Falloon's night

ended with a broken wrist - but the

Bunnies reduced the deficit from

the back of the scrum. The respite

for Souths was short lived though,

as once again they let the Doggies in.

The halftime break did little to

calm Sam Burgess - placed on report

for a grapple tackle before another

Patten error handed Sandow his second.

Down but not out - Patten put a terrible night terrible night behind him to lay

the Bunnies to rest and notch up a

century of first grade tries. A

worthy finish for the general.

Thank you, men, So Souths' finals

the Bulldogs now just 2 wins

outside the top eight.

Willie Mason has admitted he's

Super League when his contract

tonight coming - within a whisker

of a huge boil-over at Penrith.

The Panthers looking to cement

second spot on the ladder. But it

was the lowly-placed Cowboys

leading the way as Matt Bowen put

Will Tupou across. Bowen sends a Will Tupou across. Bowen sends a

rocket out to the match winner from

last Saturday night. The wet last Saturday night. The wet

conditions didn't hamper Thurston conditions didn't hamper Thurston

kicked the home side into gear. The

Panthers with an immediate response.

Johnathan Thurston then showed his

class at the other end of the field

to send Willie Tonga through. But

in a see-sawing opening Brad Tighe

got the Panthers back to within two

when he crossed. Sure enough the

Cowboys attacked again. First Sam

McKendry was placed on report for a

trip on Thurston. Then Ashley

Graham extended North Queensland's

lead, finding himself on the end of

a Bowen kick. After a try-fest in

the first half it took nearly half

an hour for either side to get over

in the second. Moments later in the second. Moments later

Penrith hit the lead for the first

time in the game as Gordon did it

all himself. A late penalty icing

the win as the Panthers snapped a the win as the Panthers snapped a three game losing streak.

So the Panthers hang on to second

another week. But Sam McKendry has

for tripping Johnathan Thurston.

With just over 24 hours until kick

off, concerns surrounding the

playing surface are beginning to dry up.

Under a closed roof, the maligned

surface of Etihad Stadium stood the

test of today's captain's run. Once

again the Wallabies coach wouldn't again the Wallabies coach wouldn't

be drawn.

Yeah, should be good.

There is the occasional bare patch There is the occasional bare patch

and boot mark, but the All Blacks

don't see what all the fuss is about.

There's grounds like that around

and I think it will be as good as

gold. One thing the teams can agree

on - the importance of the

Bledisloe Cup.

According to the players, it means

even more than the Tri-Nations.

I think the Bledisloe probably edges ahead.

It's probably the trophy we want to win the most.

Of this squad, that's something

only lock Nathan Sharpe has managed to do.

He's the sole survivor of the

victorious 2002 Wallabies.

But could hardly crack a smile in

today's team photo, after losing

his tooth in last week's win

against the Springboks. It was

found after the match - just in

time - by a groundsman.

Yeah, he said he found a human tusk on the grass.

I haven't tucked into too many

apples yet but they're fine.

Tomorrow night's Test will be

Victorian-born Rocky Elsom's first

in Melbourne as Wallabies captain.

It's probably a big moment for my

family, being Victorian. Victorians

pride themselves on their sport. As pride themselves on their sport. As

do the Wallabies on success. You
