Medical centres across Hawaii are being inundated with people suffering broken bones and cuts. The hospital closest to the epicentre evacuated its patients because it was so badly damaged. We had a whole lot of rocking and rolling. Ceiling tiles falling, lights falling from the ceiling. SIREN BLARES There are reports of major structural damage, gas leaks, power outage and landslides. We have some major to heavy earthquake damage. There are some road closures. Thousands of tourists are stranded at airports. A power outage has forced the Honolulu International Airport to stop out-going flights. Around hotels, people are rushing to buy water and basic supplies.

The body of his 21-year-old friend was pulled from the waterway yesterday. It's believed the two men were driving a powerboat late Saturday night, when they collided with a moored yacht. The yacht's owners told investigating police, the boat was empty, when it was checked after the crash. Divers are searching the spot again this morning. Fire has gutted a million-dollar home containing priceless antiques in Melbourne's south-east. Crews arrived to find flames leaping from the weatherboard property and threatening nearby sheds and stables shortly after midnight. Four people were inside when the fire broke out but escaped with minor injuries. Firefighters remain at the scene this morning. They're yet to establish a cause. Israel has been thrown into political chaos after it was revealed President Moshe Katsav has been linked to a string of sexual assaults and rape. Police have been investigating Mr Katsav for two months. They've recommended he be charged with two counts of rape, sexual abuse and fraud. Five female government workers claim the President forced them into sexual acts under threat of dismissal. The 61-year-old says he's the victim of a public lynching. Madonna has hit a major hurdle in her attempts to adopt a baby boy from Malawi. The international pop icon may be blocked by a group of charities

who say they'll apply for a court injunction to stop her. Walking into controversy. Madonna in Malawi this week on a campaign to highlight the plight of Africa's orphans. But the singer's attempts to adopt 1-year-old David Bander have run into difficulties. Tomorrow, a number of charities will go to a Malawi court to try and stop her. The child has been living at an orphanage since his mother died. His father has agreed to the adoption by Madonna but some other family members aren't happy. "We don't want to be cheated," says David's uncle. "We need a chance to visit him wherever he's going to be." Even if Madonna is successful in bringing the baby out of Malawi, she'll still have to go through the British adoption system. If anyone is considering adoption and thinks that they can go abroad, find a child, just get them a passport and bring them back in, um, they're seriously misinformed. Madonna's representatives insist

the singer will follow all the correct legal procedures

to fulfil her ambition of extending her family. A Hollywood heavyweight's taken a swipe at our refugee policy.

Nationals leader Mark Vaile is pushing for at least another $750 million. Good news in the fight against breast cancer - a new report shows fewer women are dying of the disease despite there being twice as many people diagnosed now as there was 20 years ago. Yet lobby groups say there's still more to be done to support survivors. The daughter of athletes Lisa Curry Kenny and Grant Kenny has been caught up in an earthquake that's shaken Hawaii. Power supplies are down and landslides are blocking main roads. At least 10 strong aftershocks have been felt. Fortunately there are no fatalities. To business, and finance news now with Kath Robinson. And the tumbling oil price is good news for travellers? Yes, Tracey, good news indeed with talk our airfares could come down in light of the recent downward movements in the price of oil. Qantas is currently reviewing its unpopular fuel surcharge after rivals like Singapore Airlines cut their levies by 10% over the weekend. The flying kangaroo won't say just how much its surcharge will be reduced by, but questions are being raised about the timing. Last week the airline increased its base airfares by around 3% but has denied that's to counter any reduction in its fuel levy. The lower oil prices could be short-lived, though, with OPEC likely to cut oil production

by 1 million barrels per day to keep a floor under the price. Details will be released after all 11 members meet in Qatar on Thursday. James Packer's Publishing and Broadcasting says it is always reviewing its options in response to rumours it may sell off the Nine Network

and Australian Consolidated Press. The 'Sydney Morning Herald' says San Francisco-based buyout firm Newbridge Capital is a potential buyer.

Investment bank UBS is reportedly advising PBL on any sale that would include Nine, ACP and website ninemsn. Speculation has been rife since the Government's changes to media laws passed the Senate.

It's believed PBL will focus on its gaming assets and online web portals like Seek and To the property market now, and Queensland has long been a favourite with property investors, affordability and excellent returns just some of the reasons why. But with Brisbane prices soaring, the regional market is hotting up. Here's a look at what's on offer. Brisbane is more affordable than Sydney and Melbourne but analysts say the real gems are in the regions. The regional economy is looking very, very solid.

And top of the list is Townsville. Townsville now is the CBD of the North. With a median house price of around $300,000, newcomers like Suzanne Coverlid say they found paradise. People are just have got no idea, until they get here just how fantastic it is. Other regional hot spots include: You can still buy properties for between $200,000 and $250,000. Outlying areas also proving popular. They're moving several hundred kilometres away from the regional centres because land is more affordable. Not so hot are places like: The water crisis is affecting Toowoomba. But that means prices are cheap - close to $200,000. Long-term, water issues will be solved. But a word of warning for those considering buying into the regional market - make sure you know the area. If you are buying a sea change, you're better off paying a bit more and being next to infrastructure. Kate Donnison, Ten News. A new report has found Australia's skill shortage is about to become even more chronic. Farmers across the country are being urged to leave the land and take up jobs in the mining industry

to help fill an estimated 70,000 positions that will become available by the end of the decade.

The dam levels can be deceptive. While recent rains have taken the edge off Perth's driest winters, it's still a tale of despair in the country. Cash-strapped farmers are now being asked to think about short-term jobs in mining. Well, the situation when you have fly-in, fly-out, it does create a situation where you can still work on your farm for a period of time. The number of jobs in WA's resources sector

will almost double in the next 10 years.

If farmers are ready to leave the land,

WA mining companies are ready to snap them up. A new report shows

that an extra 42,000 mine workers will be needed across the state and 70,000 across the nation.

Farmers are very resourceful,

they're used to operating equipment, complex equipment, so I think there are many pluses for people looking at either changing jobs or younger people, over the next couple of years, coming into the workforce. The Federation just hopes

desperate farmers head back to the farm once the rains return. We need those farmers out there to maintain what's coming from the paddock to the plate. Rob Newton, Ten News. Now for a quirky look into the future of finance, consider this. No more bills, no more plastic. Shoppers may soon be paying for goods with a simple swipe of the arm. That's right, in a futuristic move, researchers are working on implanting microchips the size of a grain of rice into people's bodies, much like these being used at a beach club in Spain. The chips contain a customer's banking details. The retail industry in the UK is also looking at fingerprint and iris recognition technology. Cashless society, here we come. To the markets now and the Australian share market is stronger this morning. Thanks, Kath. Australia's relationship with one of our nearest neighbours, Papua New Guinea, is on the rocks. Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has told Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare he's not welcome to visit here because of PNG's role in the Julian Moti affair.

Thank you. Doctors in Africa are trialling a ground-breaking new anti-malarial drug

that could save lives around the world. Every year more than a million children are killed by the disease, which is spread by mosquitoes.

Malaria is the biggest threat to children in Africa. It claims the life of one child here every 30 seconds. They have no immunity to the parasitic infection, so a vaccine could be a potent new weapon against one of mankind's oldest killers. 14-month-old Ernest will be one of the first children in Africa to receive the jab and he's one of more than 500 youngsters in Ghana taking part in the trials. It should train their immune system to recognise and destroy the malaria parasite. Half the children treated at this hospital have malaria. If the fever is not treated promptly, it can kill in two days. The doctor running the trial here is convinced that even if a vaccine is not completely effective, it will be a major breakthrough. Well over a million children a year die in south Sahara, Africa from severe malaria. So if we're looking at saving even half of those children that is a significant impact.

So it comes down to money. Fortunately the Microsoft billionaire, Bill Gates, is backing the vaccine. He's given $250 million to the malaria vaccine initiative to accelerate the development of the jab. So when will other African children be in line for the vaccine? The target date for licence is 2011. Remember that date. It could be the year that the war on malaria begins to be won. A Gold Coast man has taken shark fishing to new heights reeling in the monsters from his fifth floor balcony.

While his unusual techniques caught attention, so too, has the number of dangerous predators he's landed in a popular canal. After noticing some large shadows in the water beneath his fifth floor apartment, Robbie Hughes decided to chuck in a line. Like many locals and tourists, the 27-year-old doubted the reported number of dangerous sharks living in Gold Coast canals. That was until he snagged a 4.5-foot bull shark from his balcony, the first of many. Oh, there've been a dozen so far but we've lost quite a few more. All up, I'd say we've had interest from over 100 sharks. His fishing style's unique, to say the least. While he lures sharks from his verandah, his mate David Rolando waits in the carpark with a hook ready to heave it over the rail.

But the monster catches don't go to waste. One shark feeding David's large family. Take it home, clean it up, fillet it and eat it. It's beautiful, yeah. It's not just the technique that's catching attention. The bull sharks Robbie's catching are the type believed to be responsible for three deaths in Queensland in recent years. Two of them were men killed while swimming in Gold Coast canals. Robbie hopes his fishing adventures serve as a timely warning for swimmers to stay out of the canals this season. Think again, for sure. Not a good idea at all.

Summer Burke, Ten News. A movie hailed as Australia's first Aboriginal comedy has won the top gong at a film festival in France. 'Ten Canoes' was popular among critics for its humorous snapshot of Indigenous communities. Shot entirely in Arnhem Land, the film is narrated by well-known Koori actor David Gulpilil and is made entirely in an Aboriginal dialect. The France-based festival honours Australian and New Zealand films. Ahead - the Australian cricketers wrap up their Champions Trophy preparations. That's when Ten's morning news returns.

This program is captioned live. Tensions boiled over in last night's A-League clash between Melbourne and Adelaide at the Telstra Dome. Victory captain Kevin Muscat and United coach John Kosmina are under review for a fiery clash. At half-time last night at the Dome, two old mates and rivals showed the love. But by full-time, the Victory skipper and Adelaide's coach were ready to rip each other apart. COMMENTATOR: Now Kevin Muscat and John Kosmina having a real set-to on the sideline and this is not really what we want to see. The fiery clash on the edge of the pitch cost Kevin Muscat a yellow card and saw John Kosmina marched from the field. And it's ending in uproar here at Telstra Dome. Oh, well, if someone wants to nail me, let them do it. REPORTER: Do you anticipate much of a fall-out after this? If there is, you live with it, don't ya. I don't like being assaulted. The United coach maintains they are still friends but it's just that both suffer a serious case of white line fever. We had a laugh, we're mates. REPORTER: You're mates? Yeah, just not during 90 minutes of the game. I actually think I slipped. Look, there's nothing in it. We had a good laugh after the game and we'll move on. Both are under review from the Football Federation for the clash, which soured Adelaide's upset win. COMMENTATOR: Real chance for Owens. Owens has scored for Adelaide United. Greg Owens the goal scorer,

breaking Melbourne's 7-game winning streak. In last night's other A-League result, Queensland came from a goal down after just 35 seconds

to beat the Glory 2-1. Tim Hodges, Ten News. To rugby league, and the Kangaroos have arrived home from their spiteful Tri-Nations win over New Zealand. Willie Mason copped criticism for allegedly mocking the haka. He also has a facial injury that could rule him out of the Aussies' clash with the Kiwis on Saturday night in Melbourne. Willie Mason happy to back on home soil after Saturday's fiery clash with the Kiwis. Sunglasses covering a possible fractured eye-socket. The prop to learn the results of his scans later today. I think he's more upset about his looks. He's got a big shiner there. He might be looking for a little bit of payback. Mason's injury the result of a David Kidwell shoulder charge 20 minutes into the Tri-Nations opener. The incident following pre-match antics where he was seen mocking the haka. The Kiwis seething over his behaviour. I don't know why someone would just deliberately disrespect another country's heritage and their culture. If it was any one of our players, we'd be so disappointed in that person, we wouldn't really want to have them on our team. Matt King caught up in his own cross-Tasman rivalry with Manu Vatavei. He pushed me into the side. I think everyone saw that. I had an Australian jumper on and I wasn't going to stand for it. Andrew Brown, Ten News. All-rounder Shane Watson looks set to replace Simon Katich as Australia's opening batsman in Wednesday's Champions Trophy opener against the West Indies. Watson impressing with both bat and ball in a practice match against Mumbai. An opener in the making - Shane Watson backing his three wickets with the ball with 34 runs against Mumbai and a 96-run opening partnership with Adam Gilchrist. The next challenge for the Australians - to win the only major trophy that's eluded them. Feel really, really good, really fresh. It feels like the two practice matches have been enough to feel like you're back, ready to play. The Australians bowling out Mumbai for 218, then falling seven runs short of their contrived target of 300. The oppressive playing conditions a lesson in what lies ahead. We're certainly not sitting back extremely worried about the heat.

It's the same for every team. Hopefully we're in a condition to be able to survive through it. England wilted against the host nation, a duck for skipper Andrew Flintoff... COMMENTATOR: Yes, it looked out! the visitors scored their lowest-ever total against India, rolled for 125. Very, very fine catch. Kevin Pietersen's catch a rare highlight as India got home with 4 wickets and more than 20 overs to spare. Meantime, England's injured Ashes-winning captain has farewelled the old urn as it heads to Australia for a touring exhibition. Michael Vaughan is hoping he'll be fit for the final two matches of the Ashes series. Hopefully we'll sneak 'em. It's going to be tough, but I think we've got a decent enough squad

to go out there and be very, very competitive. Leanne West, Ten News. Honda rider Nicky Hayden has accepted an apology from his team-mate Dani Pedrosa after the pair crashed out of the Portuguese MotoGP race, handing the championship lead to Valentino Rossi.
