Flinders University Researchers have discovered sugars from the endive plant give a real kick to vaccines. This is a natural plant-based sugar that when added to a vaccine dramatically improves the effectiveness of the vaccine by stimulating the immune system, so when you come across the virus, you are much better protected one in two people from getting sick - it's believed the adding the adjuvant will almost double effectiveness. If we can get 70 to 80% effectiveness that really would be a global breakthrough. While it's still in the trial stage, the adjuvant is showing plenty of promise .

A woman accused of stealing a souvenir from the wreck of Peter Brock's car has had the charge against her dropped. 37-year-old Vinka Connelly was contracted by the Coroner to collect the racing legend's body from the crash site in Western Australia. It was alleged she took a piece of fibreglass with Peter Brock's famous number 5, but the charge was today thrown out of court. A workers' champion who brought building giant James Hardie to its knees is fighting a new battle - and one doctors say he can't win.

Bernie Banton has been stricken with an aggressive stomach cancer. He's fought for James Hardie's asbestos victims for years. And now Bernie Banton joins the most critically ill, himself diagnosed with mesothelioma. we've been through, Like other battles

we intend to face this one head on. Last Friday night, doctors confirmed what he already suspected - the cancer in his stomach is beyond any known treatment. I tell you, I put on a brave face, but I was shattered. Of course, we're all devastated but we all know what a fighter Bernie is.

And with the new diagnosis, a new claim for compensation from James Hardie. He's fighting to get compensation from the very fund that Bernie fought so hard to set up for all of the victims. What a wonderful opportunity I've had Even as doctors spoke of the gravity of his condition, his trademark humour shone through. The incidence rate of peritoneal mesothelioma is about one in a million. What a superstar, hey? One in a million. As he battles his third asbestos-related disease, tributes are flooding in from well-wishers in his new and very personal fight. Bernie Banton has enormous heart and courage.

The focus of this fight now is on prolonging Bernie Banton's life and, while he may live for a year or more, the average life expectancy is just six to nine months. Bernie is tonight resting at home as he prepares to start chemotherapy next week. Evan Batten, Ten News. There are fears Australia is about to be caught in the middle of a nuclear arms race. Pakistan and India are locked in a new round of tension over the Federal Government's decision to sell yellow cake to New Delhi.

It is a warning set to sound the alarm across Asia. The resumption of nuclear tests by India would create a serious situation, obliging Pakistan to review its position. While Pakistan and India have long been nuclear adversaries, this latest spat has Australia caught in the middle. John Howard's attempt to sell our yellow cake to New Delhi has added to Pakistan's anger. But Australia insists the Indian deal includes adequate safeguards. Those safeguards will be very important to make sure that uranium will be put to peaceful purposes. Tell that to Islamabad. Neither it nor New Delhi has signed the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. test adds to Pakistani suspicions. The risk of an Indian nuclear weapons This should be a source of concern, not just to Pakistan, but to the international community as well. The Australian deal could still fall over. It depends on a similar American agreement with New Delhi and that's now in jeopardy. US attempts to dictate safeguards have infuriated the influential Indian Communist party. If they walk, the Indian Government will be left in chaos, plunging the region into further uncertainty.

It's the second time LeCras has been nominated for the award. The first time was also against Richmond in 2006. Emotional scenes in Newcastle today, with a rugby league hardman reduced to tears. Kirk Reynoldson missing out on selection for the Knights - meaning his time with the club is over. Victoria Murphy explains. Thanks, Brad. Kirk Reynoldson needed to play one more match for the Knights to activate a new contract option for next year. But he was overlooked again today. Reynoldson broke down when telling his team-mates the news.

It's pretty hard on a bloke like that. Reyno's one of the nice guys of rugby league and obviously he's disappointed but I'm sure he'll pull through. He's got the support of all the players. Reynoldson's legal team considering action against the Knights. Claiming the second rower is being left out for reasons other than form. It concerns me that this begaviour exists in the game. As I said earlier, I don't believe it's a true reflection of the general good will that most rugby league clubs show their employers, the players. We certainly care about the players' welfare. We've put two offers on the table which have been rejected. North Queensland considering legal action of their own following an attack on injured forward Steve Southern. Southern, already nursing a shoulder injury,

allegedly tripped after being punched outside a Townsville pizza outlet. He suffered a season-ending fractured ankle. I know Steve Southern very well and although he's a tough football player, one of the toughest in the game in my opinion, he's not one to go looking for trouble. That's not his go whatsoever. with the Rabbitoh's eyeing off Better times at South Sydney their first finals appearance since 1989 after their stunning come-from-behind upset of Manly elevated them into the top 8.

Wallabies backrower David Lyons has been declared fit to fly after overcoming deep vein thrombosis.
