Teams would also be able to call on the 12th man as a batsman or a bowler, but once a player is substituted, he cannot return to the field.

With a population of 130 there is something magnetic something magnetic here. Here this is home to something called Wave Rock. It is a giant 150 metre high and 10 metre long natural formed wave. I am going to show you that later on. It is one ever the oldest natural structures in Australia. It natural structures in Australia. It is the home here in Hyden. It has been a fairly amazing night. Some have even slept in the back of their utes and driven up to five hours to be here today. We will meet some of those characters this morning. Cloud is approaching south-west WA with a cold front and showers should develop. Morning drizzle will clear from coastal South Australia, Victoria and northern Tasmania. Meanwhile, expect wet conditions along the NSW coast and ranges. Rain developing in Perth, and possible thunderstorms this evening, with gusty winds. Fine and mild in Adelaide, Hobart and Melbourne. A bit of rain in Canberra, and frequent showers in Sydney. Mostly fine in Brisbane. Looking ahead, a possible afternoon thunderstorm tomorrow in Brisbane. More showers for Sydney, but dry in Canberra and Hobart. Melbourne should be fine and mild. Dry in Adelaide, some rain for Perth, and sunny and hot in Darwin.

Hyden has one of those jord nairyi things that you very rarely see on a trip around Australia. You put it up there with up there with Ayres rock. Wave Rock you will see soon It is one of those thing that's the A ylan brothers went by. I haven't actually been there but Jewly and Craig are near there. Nat knows all of of WA. And they know her. There has been a strong reaction to the call to ban four-wheel drives from school zones. Next hour we'll speak to those who favour and oppose the move.

News of Kylie Minogue's breast cancer diagnosis has shocked the world. of London has rallied behind her. The superstar's adopted home town of London has rallied behind her. But what about the reaction in the British media? It is over to our man in London, Jono Coleman. Good morning. Even though it has not been a very good morning. The not been a very good morning. The news here about Kylie is huge. It has been the top story. Front page in the Evening Standard tonight and it will be all over the tabloids. My phone has not stopped thinging with colleagues asking what happened to Kylie. It is just a huge shock. People who have seen huge shock. People who have seen Kylie on stage in the Show Girl can't believe someone so young and healthy could get a diagnosis like this and it has gobsmacked a lot of people. It is going to be a story that runs and runs in the tabloids as it has been a story in the TV news. If there is a positive, A she is Melbourne, B she is Melbourne, B she is with the family and of course the word cancer is not the death sentence that it used to be. Our fingers are crossed. We are all hoping and operating for a speedy recovery. The people of the United Kingdom and Asia and all over the world have been fans for many, many years and want to and want to continue with that. Olivia new ton John and delta have been through it. She has to focus on get hing herself well. As typical Kylie apologising for letting people down in Asia and Australia for not being able to do the shows. She is a driven person. If anyone can get through

If anyone can get through this, it is Kylie Minogue. News of Kylie Minogue's breast cancer is drawing reaction from entertainers around the world. Overnight, singer Ronan Keating spoke to Sky News London. I couldn't believe it when I heard it. She is only 36 years of age. It is shocking. My mother died when she was 51. I thought that was young. Pi guess it is a wake-up call that we call that we need to pay attention. For men as well in prostate cancer. It is not a disease that affects 55, 60-year-old. Great message. 32 women diagnosed every single day. Obviously we wish Kylie well and she has a really good chance of recovery. recovery. You can only hope by putting it in the headlines to remind women to check. Why are young families leaving the cities for a new life in the country?

Some say he is rude. He's a big

goose. You are a bigger goose Some say he is crude. A narty farty one from what I can see Deep from what I can see Deep down he is a big softy T David Koch returns Monday on Sunrise. On the way, are some fad diets low in carbs, and in credibility? We'll ask a nutritionist to size them up at 7.50. But now, let's fill up on the 6.30 news. It's over to Nat Barr. Good morning. Kylie Minogue is being inundated with messages of support following yesterday's revelation she has breast cancer. The 36-year-old has put her Australian tour on hold while she receives treatment. John Farnham worked alongside Kylie in the East Timor Relief Concert and was one of many overwhelmed by the news. Shocked and devastation. I dearly love her and I have enormous respect. Kylie is expected to enter hospital in Melbourne today or tomorrow. As a performer, she's conquered her critics and won the hearts of the world. But this latest news is shaping as Kylie's biggest challenge yet. Family members have gathered in Melbourne to be with the 36-year-old as she comes to terms with the news she has breast cancer. People that are stars, you think it's impossible. But when you get down to it, we're all humans. Kylie's cancer is in the early stages and doctor's say it hasn't spread beyond the breast. Treatment typically involves an operation to remove the tumour followed by either radio or chemotherapy. With the early detection, Kylie is said to have an 85% chance of beating the disease. Women who have been unfortunate enough to have been diagnosed with breast cancer should only view it as a setback in their lives. It doesn't stop their lives, it doesn't ruin the quality of life. Kylie came to prominence in the '80s as Charlene on Neighbours. Her scheduled Australian Showgirl Tour is off, but she has told fans it is not cancelled, only postponed. (sings) # I just can't get you out of my head # 'cause your love is all I think about... # Consular officials are trying to speak to an Australian citizen being held prisoner in Kuwait as a suspected terrorist. Sydney father-of-five Talaal Adree was arrested two weeks ago. He is accused of joining a terrorist organisation and handling weapons and explosives. Australian Consular officials have been refused access to the 30-year-old, but his lawyer says they are not trying hard enough. (broken English) His embassy says seems not caring for even just to know what the matter is. He could face the death penalty He could face the death penalty if convicted. Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has made an extraordinary attack on the Labor Party. in justification for the Government's actions in Iraq and the war on terror. He's accused several past Labor leaders of being weak. He claims wartime Prime Minister John Curtin, "persisted with a policy of isolationism" and appeased Nazi Germany. In his speech, Mr Downer claimed only the Coalition was committed to "the global struggle for freedom". The only terrorist captured alive after last year's deadly school siege in the Russian town of Beslan has gone on trial. Security was tight as he was brought into court to face charges of murder and terrorism. Outside, families held pictures of some of the 330 victims. More than half of the dead were children. The man has reportedly confessed to taking part in the September raids, but denies killing anyone. Prime Minister John Howard will visit drought-affected areas in western New South Wales this week as farmers call for more Government help. the drought summit in Parkes Thousands are attending the drought summit in Parkes claiming the big dry has moved from a crisis into an emergency. Some say they haven't received a pay cheque in five years. The Government admits farmers do need better help,

but has defended its drought assistance. To sports news now with Kylie Gillies, and new drug claims in the AFL. Former Carlton ruckman Laurence Angwin claims the use of recreational drugs by AFL players is widespread. The Blues sacked Angwin last year for using ecstasy but he says the drug is cheap and some players are also dealers. Laurence Angwin claims he can name names. In an article in the Bulletin Magazine he says - The disgraced ruckman and convicted thief was sacked by Carlton last year tested positive to ecstasy. after he and team-mate Karl Norman tested positive to ecstasy. He also alleges - Three other high-profile Blues were taking the drug Carlton denies the claims but Angwin is adamant there's a drug culture in the sport. He says - The AFL has also announced it will begin testing players for the endurance drug EPO this season. It comes after Richmond coach Terry Wallace revealed some his players use caffeine tablets as a pick-me-up before matches. I think it's irresponsible over players and coaches to talk about tablets openly. That just sends the wrong message. Wallabies captain George Gregan stands accused of the same charge. He also uses the tablets. It can help your performance by up to 7% and this is all info that's been given to us by AIS sports physiologists. It is a thin line you have to walk if you are awe top sportsman. Refuse to talk about something, it seems like you got something to hide. You come out and talk about it frbgs you get it frbgs you get in trouble. If

they are not on the ban list, that is a bit of a tough one. They have to draw the line somewhere. Somewhere along the line this is going to be illegal. No doubt cave feen tablets are not. They just don't want people talking about it. Very difficult. On to other things. Our weather guy, Grant, is in Western Australia this morning. Hello again. I think there is nothing more Australian than a ute. There is nothing more Australian than a good old-fashioned camp out the back. You have these three girls who have slept out in their ute to be part of the weather this morning which I think is think is an enormous commitment. Do you agree? Yeah! Tell us where you are from. Where from raveens Thorpe. Where is that? About two hours away. Shazza, why come out on the back of I ute. I was very influenced by I ute. I was very influenced by these girls. There was a refreshment stop from Esperance. What kind of night was it like on the back of a ute? It was absolutely freezing. The girls would not spoon at all. You had the top over the back. Did that help? I was operating for rain. That was operating for rain. That would have topped everything off. The reason we are here because wave Rock is here. He used to play for p Footscray in the old days. He runs the Wave motel. This will give you an idea what it looks like. It is quite quite extraordinary. What a phenomenon It was virtually created

It is 2.3 kilometres wide. They come and they just, they are in awe of it and something spectacular that Mother Nature has made. Mark is right, it was made famous by the Laylan famous by the Laylan brothers. Bill peach with the ad. They ventured out into our community. It is one of those amazing things you see around your trip around Australia. Let's take a look at the weather. Fine and mostly sunny weather is expected throughout Queensland. Rain continuing along the NSW coast and partly cloudy west of the divide. Frequent showers in the Sydney region, and dangerous surf. Foggy at first over southern Victoria, then sunny. Just a few showers at Lakes Entrance. A foggy start around Melbourne, and a hazy afternoon. Mostly fine throughout Tasmania. Mostly sunny across South Australia with mild to warm northerly winds. A cool evening in Adelaide. Fine and warm throughout the Northern Territory. And in Western Australia showers and storms developing in the south-west. Those storms could bring damaging winds, and there's a weather warning for Perth. We are sensitive after the last few days so take care with those winds start to pick up.

Let's check the newspapers from around the country. As you can imagine, they're all leading with Kylie Minogue's breast cancer story. Here's a sample. Melbourne's Herald Sun Melbourne's Herald Sun has a special edition and says fans around the world have rallied behind the superstar. And the Adelaide Advertiser headlines "Kylie fights breast cancer." Like the Herald Sun, it has dedicated several pages to the story and says she'll receive treatment in Melbourne. The Courier-Mail is also covering Kylie's breast cancer fight. It reports the Queensland Dr Death scandal has widened. Bogus surgeon Jayant Patel has now been linked to the deaths of 67 patients. Queensland is about to hit the four million mark. 1,000 people a week move to Queensland. Away from the front pages, the other big story this morning comes from the AFL world. Former Carlton player Laurence Angwin claims three high-profile team-mates also took ecstasy on the night he was sacked last year. This is certainly rocking the AFL world this morning. It is not good news. It comes along with a string of drug charges and across all football. It is not what Carlton football. It is not what Carlton needs. They got a big week coming up. It is the farewell to the old ground. It is is a lot to come out with? Let's hope it is dealt with. There are names that have been mentioned. He says he will not name them but you can be sure people will look now. Let's bring you up to date with all the overnight news from Tinseltown. Nelson Aspen is in Hollywood. Nelson, Justin Timberlake is flirting with the other side? It sounds like he is really going for it, to me it sounds like any way. He has a couple of important

movies and we are hearing he is doing a good job. He has siebed on for a three episode role for a three episode role on Will and Grace so Justin will get his first on screen gay kiss. Val Kilmer is playing a gay detective in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. And Jennifer Aniston is dealing with claims she is a black widow? That is only behind her back. Don't worry. That is the allegation. A source close to Jennifer said that Jennifer has been a good sport through all of this tabloid news of Bran gelina and she has taken the high road and kept a low profile H high road and kept a low profile H she sought comfort with Courtney Cox but also with Kevin Costner. He went through a scandalous divorce and we hear she may be in for a big make over as she becomes newly single. The new love affair is Brad single.

Check in with you soon. Thanks, Nelson. See you again at 8.10. The music industry is lending its support to Kylie Minogue. We'll get the latest from Molly Meldrum after 7 o'clock. Later, should four-wheel-drives be banned from school zones? We'll hear both sides of the story. This is Sunrise on Seven.

Some great messages. Wishing all her best in her battle with breast cancer. Kate was diagnosed two years ago. The best medicine for me was knowing I had so much support from family and friends. I got another one here from Daniel. There seems to be a degree of surprise at such a young age. I work such a young age. I work in a radio therapy p centre where it is not uncommon to see people in their 20s. All people regardless of age should have regular checks. It is a big message coming out today. 32 women every day. Just a quick one from Leanne. I was told eight months ago that I was too young to have breast that I was too young to have breast cancer when I found a lump. I was just given the all clear. A lot of people have been through similar situations. Wishing her all the best. The other issue we are covering are four-wheel drives. There are a number of recommendations that have been put forward. I think we got some emails already. A couple of the already. A couple of the

recommendations maybe giving special licences and not letting them drive into school grounds because the little girl was run over. This one says I I am a school teacher and a drive a four-wheel drive. This one says what about teaching kids to look left and right. I think that is a bit right. I think that is a bit harsh. You can never rely on a young child to do what they are taught to do. Mike and sue, as a family we can only afford one car. We chose a four-wheel drive because we like to take the kids on camping. It is not just foura wheel drives that have dangerous dangerous drivers. One father said maybe all cars should be banned. It is so hard because a lot of schools are on main roads. There is no way stopping the traffic This is within the school grounds. Driving into the driveway. Someone said why don't they have a line of cars so you line up and continue on. I know there is there is a school around the area. I know because I went to the front of the line without knowing. Like a taxi line If your child is not there, you have to keep going Let es know your thoughts on that. Time now for the Thought of the Day and it was emailed in by David from Victoria. "Do you realise that in about 40 years, "there'll be thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos." Will you be one of them? Will you? I see some old ladies with tattoos now. Do you reckon? Do women get tattoos in the 40s and 50s? I am sure there are some out there A sure there are some out there A butterfly. A saggy butterfly. Joke

Fans around the world are rallying around Kylie Minogue who has revealed she is suffering who has revealed she is suffering from breast cancer. The Australian leg of The Australian leg of her Showgirl Tour has been postponed as the pop diva prepares for surgery. Kylie Minogue is finding plenty of support at her family home in Melbourne. Her brother visited last night, while sister Dannii while sister Dannii is rushing home from London. It is reported Kylie's French boyfriend Olivier Martinez is also by her side. The 36-year-old will stay in Melbourne for immediate surgery followed by either radio or chemotherapy after being diagnosed after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Absolutely shocked. The last thing I ever thought I would hear. John Farnham worked alongside Kylie in the East Timor Relief Concert and he too can't believe the news. Shock and devastation. I dearly love her and I have enormous respect. Kylie found fame as the girl-next-door in Neighbours. Former co-star Craig McLachlan says Kylie is a fighter and will overcome her latest challenge. I have no doubt, in my heart of hearts I know, she's going to give this thing a serious kicking. Kylie's web site has been inundated with get well messages. Most fans are disappointed Most fans are disappointed her Australian tour is on hold but all are wishing the show girl a speedy recovery. The Federal Government has confirmed an Australian citizen is being held in Kuwait as a suspected terrorist. to Kuwait three years ago. Sydney man Talaal Adree returned to Kuwait three years ago. He is accused of joining a terrorist organisation and handling weapons and explosives. Australian consular staff are trying to verify his family's claims he's being tortured in jail. We're committed to making sure that he gets the consular access and assistance that he's entitled to. It's unclear whether Adree has been charged. The Philippines Government has lashed out at Australia's claims it failed to help locate deported woman Vivian Alvarez. The Philippines Embassy in Canberra also says our Immigration Department overruled the concerns of Filipino officials about her mental health. Officials say they had no choice but to give her travel documents after Australian Immigration declared her fit to travel. The Opposition says the statement from the embassy is unprecedented and shows a lack of compassion by Australian officials. Schapelle Corby may be able to serve any sentence imposed at her Bali trial in a jail close to her home on the Gold Coast.

Disgraced former Carlton ruckman Laurence Angwin claims the use of recreational drugs is common among AFL players. Angwin was sacked by the Blues last year after he and team-mate Karl Norman after he and team-mate Karl Norman tested positive to ecstasy. In an article in the Bulletin magazine, he says the drug is cheap and readily available to players. Angwin also accuses three high-profile team-mates of taking ecstasy the night before he was sacked. Carlton denies the allegations. Queensland State of Origin legend Trevor Gillmeister says the size of the Maroons forwards could be a disadvantage in game one of the series. The selectors have chosen a monster pack to confront the Blues, but the Axe says it could backfire on them. Our mobility as well, as I said, is a little bit of a question mark is a little bit of a question mark on it because of our size so New South Wales will be looking to exploit that area. Paul Simpkins will referee the clash at Suncorp Stadium next Wednesday. The International Cricket Council wants to liven up the limited overs form of the game a set of radical rules. by introducing a set of radical rules. Under the proposal, the 15-over field restrictions at the start of each innings would be reduced to 10, but another two sets of five overs would be used later in the innings. Teams would also be able to call on the 12th man as a batsman or a bowler, but once a player is substituted, he cannot return to the field. The ICC will consider the recommendations at its executive meeting next month. Lleyton Hewitt is still some chance to play in next week's French Open.

Grant has Wednesday's weather from Hyden in WA. Hello again. This is a pretty amazing place. It may be small in population, just 130 locals but it is 130 locals but it is overwhelming in their initiative and pride. They have a pool and airstrip and proved that people power is not to the masses. The rabbit proof fences passes to the east of here. It was

built in 1901 which was to built in 1901 which was to keep the rabbits from spreading across Australia. Agriculture in Australia would be virtually impossible. Places like Hyden would not exist. Cloud is approaching south-west WA with a cold front and showers should develop. Morning drizzle will clear from coastal South Australia, Victoria and northern Tasmania. Meanwhile, expect wet conditions along the NSW coast and ranges. Rain developing in Perth, and possible thunderstorms this evening, with gusty winds. Fine and mild in Adelaide, Hobart and Melbourne. A bit of rain in Canberra, and frequent showers in Sydney. Mostly fine in Brisbane. Looking ahead, a possible afternoon thunderstorm tomorrow in Brisbane. More showers for Sydney, but dry in Canberra and Hobart. Melbourne should be fine and mild. Dry in Adelaide, some rain for Perth, and sunny and hot in Darwin.

Kylie Minogue's breast cancer diagnosis has come as a shock to her friends and fans. They're all rallying behind the pop princess this morning. Our Molly Meldrum is one of them. Good morning, Molly. Hi, how are you? I am well. How do you think Kylie is coping with this news. She is an amazing person. She looks at things in a positive level. That is the way she is doing this. Ironically Olivia happened to

this. Ironically Olivia happened to be in town. Kylie had lunch with Olivia. She approached this as another challenge. She has conquered all of them. She is in Melbourne and with her family, Ron and care ol and her brother is coming home and her manager and all her friends, this is the best place for her to be under these for her to be under these circumstances I know they seem to be a close family. Very close If it is going to happen anywhere, I guess you want to be at home with your parents when this happens. I really haven't had much sleep during the night and I was watching Sky news in London and they did an interview with Ronan whose mother died at 51. Ronan had started a walk prior to Kylie's announcement of her contracting breast cancer and he sent a message to Kylie. He said exactly the same thing - it is great she is home with her family and it is the best place to be We heard from him a little bit earlier. heard from him a little bit earlier. That message of support is fantastic coming from him. She has had wonderful support from around the world because she is an international superstar. Here in Australia, the concert till was sold out. They couldn't put more date it's here in Australia because she did have commitments back in London London including the glfplt Glastonbury festival. Here was the career she was so looking forward to, being a credible artist. She can't do Glastonbury. Everyone in this country loves Kylie as they do in the UK and Europe in the UK and Europe and America She is close to her fans and so wonderful. The first thing she said in her statement she said she was sorry to disappointment. Bearing in mind what she is facing, it is amazing. They are pretty important to her. They have always been important to her. She skhaz never let them down. I mean she is devastated devastated that she can't do the Australian tour at the moment. She will go into hospital today and all our wishes are with her through the next few days and next few weeks. I have no doubt Kylie being Kylie with her family behind her and her friends that she will recover quickly Is she here indefinitely, she will stay in Australia for she will stay in Australia for treatment? Absolutely. As I say, not only being here in Melbourne with the family and the medical staff in Australia and certainly in Melbourne are probably the best in the world anyhow Thank put for joining us. I know you are very close so you give her all our best wishes too. We're going to stick with Kylie's story. Mark has more. Thanks, Mel. What does this mean for Kylie's future? For the medical perspective on this story, Dr John D'Arcy joins us. Good morning. What are her chances of making a full recovery? A wonderful chance because she discovered this tumour very early. The clear evidence is the earlier you find any breast cancer tumour the greater your chance chance of beating it in the long-term How does she go about beating it now? She will either have a total removal of the tumour and if it is from a pathological point of view not spreading from the tumour, are in other words not going from the tissue in the tumour that may be all she has. At a later stage she stage she will be assessed for radio therapy, chemotherapy or hormone treatment. That will depend

on the nature of the tumour. It will depend on the nature of it at the biopsy or at the removal How important is that early detection? I can't tell you how important it is. It is so important for him. 25% of all breast cancers occur under the age of 50. What we are saying to all to all women, it doesn't matter what age you are, breast aware naes is the most important thing you can do. If you find those changes you can bring it to the attention of the doctor T it you have have a triple test P you must remember that most of the lumps you feel are not going to be cancer but being aware is the aware is the key Molly mentioned she will undergo immediate treatment. She is going in the hospital today is that normal procedure? Yes, it is normal. Obviously when people find a lump and a biopsy has indicated it say cancer they want it out immediately. I must say women who have to wait, who live in the country who are told one told one or two weeks before it is out, don't worry. These tumours will not spread over time. Great that she will know very quickly what the future prospect is going to be for her What are her options? You mentioned the triple test. It is something that leads up to is something that leads up to the diagnosis sf cancer. There are three thing that's are important. The first is a clinical examination. A clinical examination assumes it is only by a doctor. Let's just say an examination. To find the lump in the first place. The second is imaging. We know about ma'am oing ravy. It is also used to assess the tumour and sometimes an ultrasound is necessary to see the ultrasound is necessary to see the nature of the lump that is there. Finally is a biopsy. It is a non-surgical biopsy which means a

needle in the tumour so it can be assessed. Sometimes it is a surgical biopsy. By going through that triple test, the examination, the imaging and the biopsy, that is the way the doctor can the way the doctor can make an accurate diagnosis of the lump in the breast What is the likely treatment for Kylie now? Once again the lump will be removed. It will be assessed pathologically. The tissue will be assessed to see whether or not St tumours have spread from the lump into the tissue. Hopefully it hasn't P if it has, then certain therapies will take take place. Obviously if it has, the tumour will be removed as well as the glands under her arms as well. If it hasn't spread and still inside the tumour, then the tumour itself will rebe removed. It depends on what will happen in the operating theatre today It is important to jog important to jog women to get checked. Breast awareness is important. Feel your own breast once a month. See what changes might take place P if you have any doubts, talk about it. As I said, most of the breast lumps won't be cancer and you will get good new frz your doctor A great call there. To the call for large four-wheel drives to be banned from New South Wales primary schools. The coroner's recommendation comes three years after the death of a young student in Sydney. She was run over on the school grounds. The inquiry also recommended special licences for owners of four-wheel drives. Let's get some reaction to this. Raphael Grzebieta from the College of Road Safety joins us from Melbourne and Pat Callinan is from Four-Wheel Drive Monthly Magazine. Good morning. Raphael, do you support the recommendations? I support the recommendation that

feefl around schools need to be appropriately marshaled. When you mix little people with big four-wheel drives where you can't see over the front of them then we are waiting for a tragedy to happen like in like in regards to the coroner investigated. Pat, one of the call is for owners of four-wheel drives to have special licences. I think there should be additional training. I think that people in big four-wheel drive pz if they only recently got the licence or just purchased it having driven a small car need car need to be aware of the hazards. Very high four-wheel drives have blind spots and probe to roll over in cornering situations and likewise they can be quite devastating when hitting small cars? What do you think of that idea? I think it is unreal. Family rz are rz are driving them in droves. They are multipurpose vehicles. You can drop the kids off at soccer or go in the out back on camping. It is a community issue. We need to raise the community issue We have. So what do you think we need to do? How do we prevent a tragedy like this from occurring again? Sirbgs I think more thorough think more thorough training. I don't think four-wheel drive are the issue. An NRMA study found that a lot of four-wheel drives have fantastic rearview vision. A lot have rear cameras. There are plenty of way was we can look at this without chucking without chucking another law in there to sort this problem out. We are talking about four-wheel drives under a big umbrella. The Landcruisers and the patrols. What are your thoughts on the smaller four-wheel drives? As long as the front end of them are not designed to be too high. If you over a metre in terms of its front height then in terms of its front height then there could be an issue. It really has to do with blind spots and we need to address this issue from both a movement of vehicles around schools but also a design perspective. So car manufacturers need to be aware that there are situations that these vehicles can get into which pose a threat to our young young children. You wouldn't let a group of kids loose in a trucking yard. That is what you are doing. You got these small children amongst these big vehicles and we have a situation where it can be uncontrolled unless there is a teacher or voluntary parent watching the kids Both the driver of the vehicle in question and the father of the victim are father of the victim are suggesting that cars full stop be ban pd within school grounds. Would you support that? Yes, I think that there is some merit considering where cars move in school grounds. You need to look at conflict where are vehicles going across pedestrian paths. We design industrial areas where industrial areas where people are move sping around where they are working. We make sure vehicles don't cross pedestrian paths o to the best we can. Where they do cross paths we make sure the clearance area the vehicle driver can see the pedestrian crossing that path. They also need to make sure that the vehicle can sure that the vehicle can also be elevated enough in terms of looking out over the front bonnet to make sure that person is not struck So, Pat, would you support that banning of cars on school

grounds? You have to look at it on a school by school basis. When you start bringing a ban like this it depends on the schools and the depends on the schools and the school grounds and how you can bring a law like that across every primary school in the state or the country is beyond me. I don't think it is realistic Thank you both H let us know what you think. We are interested in your thoughts toed. You have heard the arguments from both sides. Now it is time for you to pass judgment. We are throwing open the lines for a Sunrise phone poll. Is Bill Clinton's South Beach Diet all washed up?

And he is thinking about work. Me and him are like this. I told him if he is going to go skating to check the ice. Or put a video camera on You might have just caught our interview. We were talking about four-wheel drives. There has been recommendations, the larger ones. To have a special licence S Lorraine says she is the

owner of one. She said to have sense ors fitted on both the front and rear. Adrian says I am on the road a lot and I see a lot of women who can't handle it but I see a lot of males are who arrogant too The soapbox is chockers Not just four-wheel drive. If you want to have a good example, prop yourself outside a school and see what outside a school and see what goes outside a school and see what goes on. It is pretty wild We are going to talk about those TV games. Those TV game consoles are very serious business these days.

John Farnham worked alongside Kylie in the East Timor Relief Concert and was one of many overwhelmed by the news. Shocked and devastation. and I have great respect. I dearly love her and I have great respect. Kylie is expected to enter hospital in Melbourne today or tomorrow. Doctors say Kylie has an 85% chance of beating the disease. The popstar's breast cancer was diagnosed early and experts say there is every reason for optimism. Women who have been unfortunate enough to have been diagnosed with breast cancer should only view it as a setback in their lives. It doesn't stop their lives, it doesn't ruin the quality of life. Treatment typically involves an operation to remove the tumour followed by either radio or chemotherapy. Consular officials are trying to speak to an Australian citizen being held prisoner in Kuwait as a suspected terrorist. Sydney father-of-five Talaal Adree was arrested two weeks ago. He is accused of joining a terrorist organisation and handling weapons and explosives. Australian Consular officials have been refused access to the 30-year-old, but his lawyer says they are not trying hard enough. (broken English) His embassy says seems not caring for even just to know what the matter is. if convicted. He could face the death penalty if convicted.

Crows premiership player Mark Stevens has hung up his boots. Stevens has struggled to break into Adelaide's top ranks this season and decided to end his 122-game career.

In cricket, Australian captain Ricky Ponting will be allowed to continue using his graphite-enforced bat for the time being. The International Cricket Council says it wants to conduct more research into the design before deciding if it is illegal. I know he I know he reckons it is all a bit of storm. He will be able to use that bat. An expert panel will once and for all spell out those rules. They say they want to keep cricket a game between a wooden bat and a ball. I don't know why they need an expert panel to decide that. Let's get a weather check from Grant in Hyden, WA. Hello again. Let me melt your heart here. We Let me melt your heart here. We got

It's an issue which has punctured egos in the past, but now there's a revolution for the tyre as we know it. Yes, a new airless tyre never goes flat and has engineers in a spin. Sunrise Gadget Guy Pete Blasina checked it out while we were in LA. Good morning, Pete. What is this? It is really interesting. Michelin developed it. It is called a tweel. Most wheels and tyres, you got the rubber part and it is filled with air so it is a pneumatic tyre T Mich Lynn came up with this new compound plastic and you can see right through it. So you have got the rubber on the outside. You got 20% of the tyre but you don't put any air into it. If you look at the wheel itself, all the pressure is taken by these...The middle bit is metal They are plastic, very high impact plastic. Because of the angle, they perform like the air in a tyre. No air? Just the plastic struts. It is surprising what you can do with it. You can hit gutters and a stack of different obstacles and they absorb it and they absorb it all So it does actually work Yes. They trialled it on a number of cars, heavy earth-moving equipment. The thing with it is they have to develop this plastic a little further for high speed cars. At the moment, regular driving is fine. The next regular driving is fine. The next step is to go into high speed cars and so for racing. When do you think? They are saying the very first of them should be available for a variety of different products, we did it on the single person mover in the states. For a variety of different products this year and then we will move out into cars in

the next five or six years. Pete on to other things. The latest gameing machines are being released. Tell us about the latest Xbox. This is the outside of it.

It will connect wireless to your computer, you can bring in photos, music, video, you name it, through the Xbox. the Xbox. The audio experience is full surround sound. It becomes part of your entertainment centre but still to your computer. This is great. Has PlayStation brought something out to match it? This is the Xbox II. The next for PlayStation is PlayStation 3S we are talking about incredible are talking about incredible stkpeerpbss in terms of what you can do with the games. It really allows the game developers to go to the next level and with that cinema effect and surround sound. Incredible graphics ska. When does that come out? In Australia just after Christmas, probably Easter. From what I heard, PlayStation 3 should be here by Christmas. It is going to be really interesting for games. It is really taking the games to the next level for both systems That is great. Thank you, Pete. My pleasure If you'd like more information on any of Pete's gadgets, head to the Sunrise web site.
