Australia is mourning the loss of

one of the country's most gifted

doctors. Cancer expert Chris

O'Brien passed away last night

after a 3-year battle with brain

cancer. He was well known for his cancer. He was well known for his

work on a TV reality show, and used work on a TV reality show, and used

his own experience as a patient to

cancer victims. ensure better treatment for all

Professor Chris O'Brien - world renowned surgeon, medical pioneer,

loving husband and father. The face

of the reality TV series 'RPA'

devoted his life to treating and

researching head and neck cancer. researching head and neck cancer.

But it was his extraordinary

ability to connect with patients

that made him so special. He combined that enormous technical ability with incredible humanity, incredible compassion for his

patients with whom he shared a deep

empathy. I engaged with him

immediately. I didn't feel like a doctor-patient relationship, he was

very down to earth, very

compassionate. And he was committed

to improving medical facilities and

the experience of cancer patients.

We will seek nothing less than

world class benchmarks in treatment

and research outcomes. For years

the father of three changed the

lives of those he met. But in 2006,

his own life took a tragic turn -

he was diagnosed with an aggressive

form of brain cancer. Doctors gave

him six months to live. He decided

he was going to do everything he

could, firstly, to look after

himself, which he did. Secondly,

inspire others in that situation.

And finally, use those last few

years in a very productive way. And

this was the result - Lifehouse,

Australia's largest cancer care

centre. Construction will get under centre. Construction will get under

Lifehouse way later this year and by 2012,

Lifehouse at RPA will be a reality,

and Professor O'Brien's legacy will

live on. He single-handedly turned live on. He single-handedly turned

personal adversity into national personal adversity into national

opportunity in advocating the cause

of integrated cancer care across

Australia. Generous, humorous and

warm, he was a very, very special

person. Professor O'Brien will be

honoured with a state funeral. honoured with a state funeral.

London tonight. Bread, Cricket London tonight. Bread, Cricket

Australia has had enough?

After a turbulent few years, this

looks like it is enough for the

talented all-rounder. The final

cricket. straw for the notorious bad boy of

After defending him time and time

again, Ricky Ponting realised even

he can't save Andrew Symonds from

himself. It was an alcohol-related

incident. I'm not going to go say

any more than that. It was, as I've

said, commitments he'd made to

himself and to the team, so as much

as anything, he's let himself down

and he's let all his team-mates

down, he's let Cricket Australia

down. It's a constant balancing act

and it's just tipped too far today. Cricket Australia sacked the

allrounder from the Twenty20 squad,

sending him home from London in

disgrace. It's understood he broke

team drinking rules on a number of team drinking rules on a number of

occasions over the course of two occasions over the course of two

days, including while watching a

broadcast of Queensland's State of

Origin win. Seen as an off-field

liability but an onfield champion,

in the past, Symonds has shown up

drunk to a one-day match in Wales,

was sent home from Darwin for going

on a fishing trip instead of to a

team meeting, and been fined over

an alcohol-fuelled radio rant. But

despite this latest fall from grace,

his team is still supportive. He's

a great player and a great mate of

mine, so it's a real shame. Their

first official match is this

weekend. The big concern now is

whether or not Andrew Symonds's

sudden departure will affect the

team's chances in the Twenty20

tournament. His team-mates say

while he'll be missed, one player

doesn't make a side. To lose a

player of his calibre, it's a big

hole in the Australian cricket team,

so it is disappointing and we hope so it is disappointing and we hope

that Andrew can be back shortly.

But that looks unlikely - this

blown chance may be his last.

Hopefully after this next little

bit, I'll come out of it a better

person and won't make these

mistakes in the future. He was on

his last warning. Overnight,

Cricket Australia stuck to its word.

In the context of commitments that

Andrew has made to his team-mates

and Cricket Australia over the last

6 to 12 months, they are the final

straw. His contract with Cricket

Australia was due to be renewed at

the end of this month. That will

now be reviewed next week and more

than likely terminated. Andrew, in

his own self, maybe hasn't

recognised and paused for one

moment about what he wants to do

with regards to a problem that he

knows, that he's self admitted. In

any case, many believe Symonds will

walk away from national duties on

his own accord, freeing him to play

a full season with his Indian

Premier League team. I was really

proud as a coach the way he handled

himself over in South Africa for

the IPL so it's just a shock for us

all. Symonds could earn almost $2

million for the full 5-week

tournament. Playing for Australia

last month reduced his time to just

eight games, costing him almost $1 million.

We will have more later in sport.

Plus, a gallant bowing out of the

French Open. And some interesting

comments about rugby league status

as a world game.

A couple has been found guilty of

killing their baby by not seeking

conventional medical help. Instead conventional medical help. Instead

they relied on homeopathic drugs -

but she died a painful death and

now the parents are facing jail.

Shortly after they walked into

court, Manju Sam was sobbing on her

husband Thomas's chest, their arms

wrapped tightly around each other.

They'd both been found guilty of

the manslaughter of their 9-month-

old baby girl Gloria. She died

seven years ago from blood

poisoning after the couple failed

to get a common skin condition

eczema treated properly. They

instead used various homeopathic

drops. The last few months of her

life led to a painful death - her

skin would often weep, stick to her

nappy and clothing, then peel off,

allowing infection to spread.

Defence lawyers today stressed:

The couple, who now has a 3-year-

old child, have strong family ties

in India and have been forced to

surrender their passports. Although

the Crown argued against granting bail, saying they both faced

mandatory jail terms, the judge

allowed it, saying they'd been put

on notice since 2002 with police

and coronial inquiries, yet they

stayed here in Australia. Their

sentencing process begins next month.

A mother accused of killing her son

and leaving his body in a suitcase

dumped in a pond has pleaded guilty

to manslaughter but not guilty to

murder. The remains of 2-year-old

Dean Shillingsworth were found in

Sydney's south-west in 2007. The

accept Rachel Pfitzner's

manslaughter plea. Her trial has

been set down for September.

after what they feared was a

gangland shooting. Just saw a whole

lot of cops running around with

bullet-proof vests on. Search

lights, police dogs and what have

down streets and ordered neighbours

inside their homes after Ms

Gordon's companion reported a group

of armed men attempting to break

into his apartment. But hours later, officers reviewing security footage

found no sign of any bandits,

alleging Ms Gordon made admissions

of drug use, while her embarrassed

friend admitted the drama could

have been an hallucination. Gives

you a lot of comfort knowing it was

just a hallucination but I'm not

sure if I'd want to be in his shoes

right now. She has done absolutely

nothing wrong in this and she

shouldn't be crucified for this. shouldn't be crucified for this.

Despite complaints from neighbours,

officers say they won't be laying

charges. While a Channel Seven

spokesperson has expressed concern

for Jodi Gordon's health and safety

today, there was no comment from

the network about the future of its

rising star. The drama ends a bad

Labor's most recent scandal. Labor's most recent scandal.

Surprise, surprise. Senator John

has been given the job of leading

the white paper reforms. He is a

man of great character. He replaces

Mr fit given after a complication

with his personal interests with

his brother. Sadly, I am not able

to look at my own ministerial

office.He says that he still faces

a steep learning curve. I had a

very high level of confidence that

the expectations will be met. The

appointment of John Falconer has been

been a clear message. Kevin Rudd

has been telling all who wants to

override his reform agenda out to

watch out. There are many

unanswered questions and I think

those questions will be asked over

the next few weeks.

family has slammed our justice system as an embarrassment.

Watson's family can't understand

how their duaghter's life is worth

embararssment to Australia. It's an

embarrassment to the police here.

It's an embarassment to the police

in our country. 5.5 years ago,

Tommy Thomas sent his daughter off

on her honeymoon to Australia.

Today he wept as Gabe Watson

admitted to what they believed all

along - he killed Tina. Members of

Australia's Indian community have

also attacked the Indian media for

claiming a small number of attacks

on students amounts to racism. With

Australia's reputation being

trashed on Indian television, the trashed on Indian television, the

State Government moved to reassure Indians they're welcome here.

Violent attacks on Indian students

in Victoria have prompted a wave of

negative news stories in the Indian media, claiming students studying

here are being targeted by racists.

But Indians living in Sydney have

hit back accusing the Indian media

of sensationalism. They have gone

on the media beat up and calling

Australia racist and so forth and

we have been here 20, 30, 40 years

and let me tell you - this country

is a fair country, not racist

country. Their comments followed an

Indian community forum with Premier

Nathan Rees, who played down the problem. Very occassional, minor incidents - certainly no pattern

and nothing racially based. But

Indian students say they're facing

attacks, especially on the rail

system. Lots of Lebanese guys or

Australians, Aussie guys used to

throw bottles sometimes at the throw bottles sometimes at the

stations and have some abusing

words to Indians like, "Go back

from here." When they are working

late at night and travelling,

crimes are happening, violent acts

are happening at the railway

stations. And police are

investigating a firebomb attack

last month that left an Indian

student with serious burns. He

remains in hospital. I believe

there is a law and order problem

Two car owners who lost their

vehicles in the Bellevue Hill

cost more than $1 million, but so

far nobody has agreed to pay the bill.

It's been eight days since Harry

Scott last sighted his car. Today

he got one final glimpse of what

had been his Toyota Camry. Tearing

apart like paper mache, a front-end

loader scraped and pulled at the

wreckage and then consigned it to

the tip. It's not the same

condition it went in. It was one of

two cars buried under a mountain of

dirt when the road was swallowed by

the earth at Bellevue Hill last

week. A leaking pipe is believed to

have caused the landslide, which

also destroyed the popular Cooper

Park, but publicly, Sydney Water is

still reluctant to accept full

blame. Despite the huge amount of

damage, the repair crews are

confident they can reopen the road

above in around three weeks. But

recreating this once tranquil park

is expected to take much longer.

constant balancing act which has

tipped too far today.It was a no

not say any more than that. - - it

was an alcohol-related incident.

Symonds' return to the Australian

team was seen by many as premature,

but the all-rounder himself was

desperate to get back. So desperate

maybe that in fact, that Andrew in

his own self, maybe hasn't

recognised and paused for one

moment for what he wants to do in

regards to a problem that he knows

he's self admitted. What is a dark

day in Australian cricket and in

the life of Andrew Symonds, is a

bright light for Victorian captain

Cameron White. After initially

being overlooked for the Twenty20

tour, he's now on his way to

England as Roy's replacement.

What's happened, happened on the

plane tonight. It is obviously very

disappointing for the whole team.

and see what we can do. While

Symonds' Cricket Australia contract

is likely to be torn up, his place

in the Indian Premier League is safe.

West Tiger coach Tim Sheens admits

his team is feeling the pressure

streak against a team they haven't

under that anxiety, got to create

an opportunity to win a game. The

Tigers have certainly been close.

They lost by 2 points to the Dogs,

just 1 to the Rabbitohs, then by 2
