Tonight - Kevin Rudd in hospital,

his campaign on hold as he

undergoes emergency surgery. We are

all hoping, wishing, praying for a

speedy recovery. The Premier's

prediction as a Labor heavyweight

jumps ship. It's not surprising.

There'll be more decisions. Sneaky

Saturday - the new day to fill up

on the cheap. Sydney's morning fog

blanket disrupts the start of the

day. Good evening, I'm Deb r and

I'm Ron Wilson. Tough laws come

into force to protect paramedics

from violence. Does it live up to

the hype, the iPhone asks in

Australia. But first, former Prime

Minister Kevin Rudd is in a

Brisbane hospital tonight

undergoing emergency surgery to

have his gall bladder removed.

Julia Gillard wished him a speedy

recovery, but once again the former

leader has taken the spotlight away

from her campaign. Mr Rudd was

admitted to Brisbane's Mater

Private Hospital this afternoon to

have his gall bladder removed after

suffering acute abdominal pain. In

Perth Julia Gillard received the

news at a campaign event We would

obviously wish him well and a

speedy recovery and the best of

treatment and care in hospital. Mr

Rudd expects to be in hospital for

a couple of days, and to be back in

says: action next week. His spokesman

That was music to Ms Gillard's ears.

He is prepared to campaign more

broadly when he's well enough, and

I obviously welcome that. The Labor

campaigners are hoping the

development will fend off attacks

like this from the Opposition. I

just note the poisonous quality of

what is going on inside the

Government right now. That prompted

by form Labor leader laithrr

attacking Kevin Rudd for leaking --

Mark Latham attacking Kevin Rudd

for leaking against Julia Gillard.

I challenge Kevin Rudd to be a man

and be honest. An attack ignored.

Leaks coming from Labor was

impacting on the campaign. Swinging

voters were asking with so much

disunity are they up to running the

country. Julia Gillard claimed this

fibre optic cable was the key to

20,000 jobs and faster Internet for

93% of the population. As Prime

Minister I will build the National

Broadband Network, Mr Abbott will

not. Mr Abbott was in Adelaide,

having fun with a lemon. This isn't

a Kevin O-leven. His announcement a

314 million plan to support

children with disability, its

centre point an education card

worth $20,000 for each eligible

stunt. The money will follow the

student rather than be given to the

institution. Let's go live to Paul

Bongiorno, in Canberra. Julia

Gillard's campaign has been overshadowed by Kevin Rudd, not

intentionally this time. Is there a

light at the end of the tunnel here

for Labor. There's been a fair bit

of overshadowing going on today.

The illness of the former Prime

Minister, in fact, overshadows

another statement, another announcement that many in Labor

have been freting over, and that is

that the rift, you could call is a

khasm between Kevin Rudd and Julia

Gillard seems to have been healed.

Mr Rudd is prepared to campaign for

Labor outside his electorate in

Queensland or around the country,

wherever they need him. That will

be music to Julia Gillard's ears.

Thank you Paul Bongiorno, there

live from Canberra. Meantime former

Democrats leader Cheryl Kernot is

making a political comeback. Cheryl

Kernot, who defected to Labor in

1997 is standing as an independent

Senate candidate for NSW. Most of

all I care about our opportunity as

a nation to have complex grown-up

conversations without everything

being trivialised. Cheryl Kernot

will run under the banner Change

Politics a slogan the Democrats

used in 2001. The Premier spects

more of her team to quit before the

State election eight months away.

The resignation of Labor heavy

weight John Della Bosca has sparked

speculation. Having resigned to the

governor, John Della Bosca is the

latest MP to make an exit. Not

without one final hurdle.

Occupation a health and safety

trouble I'll get into. I made

mistakes, but on balance I put in a

good effort. It's time to leave it

to someone else. He was caught up

in an ugly argument with staff at

Iguana's Bar, on the Central Coast,

and scorned lover Kate Neill

exposed their affair. There's a

reason for that, you have to make

decisions. Sometimes you make

enemies, opponents, you upset

people, things go wrong. He's

looking forward to his new job in

disabilities, and admits the party

needs to focus on renewal. The

Premier's expecting this departure

won't be the last. People make

decisions about whether or not to

continue in their parliamentary

career, it's not surprising, I

anticipate there'll be more

decisions. Many of the MPs

considered publicly problemic are

vowing to stay on, like

controversial powerbroker Joe

Tripodi, Eddie Obeid's term in the

Upper House won't expire until 2015.

Frank Sartor is contemplating his

future, and Matt Brown was sacked

for dancing in his underwear, and

Tony Stewart sacked from the

ministry, but intends to stay on I

don't think they are capable of

rejuvenating at this stage. It's

time for a change. The extent of

pre-selection battle after the which will be fought out during a

Federal poll. And Josh Murphy is

standing by to talk to us in

Macquarie Street live. The catchcry

these days is about transparency,

and in that light the Premier has

been quick to let us know how much

her recent trip to China cost.

That's right, travel on the public

purse is a sticky point for the

Government. The costings have been

released as soon as the bills have

been tallied. Nine people travelled

with the Premier to China, over

seven days, visiting Shanghai,

Beijing, and numerous other parts

of the country. The total bill has

come in at just over $106,000. That's including airfares,

accommodation, transport, gifts and

other incidentals, and Kristina

Keneally released an itinerary to

justify the trip's worth. It's

important to point out the $106,000

costing is for the Premier's office.

Numerous staff from other

Government departments made the

trip to China during that week. The

final cost of the trip could

eventually be more when you take

into account those other

departments. Josh Murphy at State

Parliament. Friday nights and

Saturday mornings are the best

times to buy petrol. It's been that

way for weeks. More than half of

Sydney's drivers are still filling

up on Tuesdays. A great price for

petrol today, especially for

motorists with supermarket dockets.

The envelope rr says changes to the

weekly -- the NRMA says changes to

the price sickles are confusing. In

the last month Saturday northern is

the cheapest time to buy fuel. I

shop around for petrol. I like to

pick the cheapest day, it's hard to

know which is the cheapest. It

would be better if it was the one

price through the week, no matter

what day of the week. Could be

tomorrow, yesterday, it's all the

time they rob you. Prices jump on

Saturday as well. Sometimes by as

much as 20 cent a litre. The change

in the weekly cycle is about

keeping the volume of sales up.

Service stations were quieter on

weekends, that's where they are

fighting for market share. The NRMA

wants powers for the Government's

petrol commissioner to deal with

sites like this, where oil

companies feed prices every 15

minutes, only they have actions.

The Opposition says it would sack

the Petrol Commissioner. The Petrol

Commissioner has been ineffective

in keeping prices on. Julia Gillard

will keep him on. Which have the

Petrol Commissioner to monitor what

is happening with petrol pricing,

particularly to see if there is

collusion on pricing. So far the

Petrol Commissioner hasn't found

evidence of price fixing. Talk

about a pea souper, thick fog

causing commuter chaos from Sydney

to Brisbane. International flights

have been divert and grounded,

drivers forced to a crawl. From 150

metres up, this was the view of

Sydney's Harbour Bridge. Two flags

popping through a thick fog. From

the city skyscrapers only the top

floors had a view. Forecasters

saying the fog was one of Sydney's

thickest, spreading from

Campbelltown in the south to

Richmond in the north. Through the

city the silver ribbon wound its

way above the harbour, this is the

view from behind. What do you think

of the fog. It's aing, seeing the

bridge -- amazing seeing the bridge

disappear. It's lovely to see it

moody. You feel the temperature

drop as you walk up. At Sydney Airport two international flights

were diverted to Melbourne. Heavy

fog in Brisbane caused golo-on

delays. Planes were forced to loop

above the tarmac and at Bankstown

light planes were grounded.

Conditions for drivers was

dangerous, in Richmond disability

100m. The fog forming after rain

combined with skies and a rapid

cooling of the air overnight. As

the sun came off it burnt off. Most

disappearing by 9 am. Interesting

mourning for a bridge climb, a

couple of hours ago people booked

in would have been worried they may

not have seen anything. But the fog

has started to lift and the view is

incredible. When you woke up this

morning, what did you think. I said

to Julie and said "I can't see the

top of where we are going". What do

you think now. Awesome. It is a

stunning view, it's not just the

fog that's unusual, but the

temperature. Emily Rice joins us,

it's warm out there. That's right.

19 degrees at the moment. We had a

top of 21 this afternoon in Sydney.

At the airport 23. While we had the

fog, we had some very above-average

temperatures, unusual for this time

of year. Also unusual for this time

of year is all the rain we have

been having. It's been very, very

consistent, and that's why I'm

staying inside tonight. We are

going to have around 7mm of rain

tonight. It should hit in the next

half hour or so. A road weather

alert has been I should, it will be

dangerous if you are heading out,

take care. Interesting this week,

as well as the fog, temperatures

have been the weather pictures,

stunning entries, and the winner is

Kanwar Sidhu of Curtin ACT. Shots

of the Black mountain. He takes

home the camera. I'm looking

forward to seeing the fog

photographs next week, there'll be

beautiful pictures, and beautiful

pictures this weekend probably not.

There's really interesting weather

on the way. As I said, rain tonight,

and some cold conditions towards

the back-end of the weekend. I'll

give you the full wrap-up at 5:55.

Still ahead - easier access to the

injection changing the lives of

rheumatoid arthritis sufferers.

Also - new protection for

paramedics as they battle

increasing violence. I've had

oxygen tubing wrapped around my

throat and grabbed around the neck.

And why mouth to mouth

resuscitation is no longer vital in

an emergency.

You're watching 'Ten News'. Flu

vaccinations have been cleared for

children under five, but only two

brands, Vaxigrip, or Influvac are

being recommended. Under five

vaccinations were suspended last

month after reports of children

suffering fever and convulsions.

The reactions appear to be linked

to Fluvax. Tough laws are in force

to jail anyone attacking ambulance

officers following a rise in

aassaults. Attacks on ambulance

officers have increased 60% in two

years, forcing the State Government

to act. As of today anyone who

obstructs, hinders or attacks an

balance officer faces up to five

years in prison. It sends a strong

message to the community that

assaults, interfearing with

paramedics whilst assisting is

unacceptable. Every day paramedic

Caroline Woods tries to save lives,

she's puts hers on the line in the

process. I experienced people

attempting to punch, kick, I've had

oxygen tubing wrapped around my

throat. Ambulance officers say

drugs are largely to blame for the

spike in attacks. Due to the rise

in alcohol and drug use within the

community it's a challenge we face

more and more often. Luckily not

everyone sees ambulance officers as

a target. For six years in a row paramedics have been voted Australia's most trusted professionals.

professionals. Saving lives may no longer require giving victims the

kiss of life. A global study

finding mouth to mouth is not

always necessary. This could be all

it takes to save someone's life.

(counting). A major International

study found chest compressions are study found chest compressions are

just as effective as mouth to mouth

in cardiac arrest cases if the

rescuer has had no resuscitation

training. To do something rather

than nothing, the something is

chest compressions. Australia's CPR

standards will receive the biggest

overhaul in years soon, to reflect

the study's findings. There'll be a

major change, we'll advise people

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 putting my mouth on

someone's mouth. There's different

ways of transmitting disease. 8% of

Australians have current first aid

training. St John's says you can't

cause serious harm by attempting

resuscitation. If you do nothing,

the casualty might die. It's

preferable to do something. The new

CPR guidelines are expected to be

released in November. Suvers of

rheumatoid arthritis will have

access to a new treatment reducing

the number of injections needed to

relieve the condition. Sympony

targets pain and swelling, and is

it could come at a cost. Green's

his party will win the balance of

power in the Senate giving it

influence in shaping legislation.

Bob, you are a hero. I've been in

politics for a long while. People

in middle Australia know that we

the big parties aren't talking

about it. The polls put support for

the Greens at around 10pl', and the

predominantly working class and

more diverse and voters here are

dissatisfied with what the major

parties have on offer. I don't

think the other parties offer a

vision for Australia that I agree

with. The Coalition says voters

certainly think that Bob Brown

recruit wants to play an end of

but his native Tonga. It's going to

be a big process. Trying to do that.

it I will be more than happy. He'll

need ARL approval because he played

it will be as good as gold. One

thing that can be agreed on is the

wearing my bright red tie to

support the Swannies against the

kaps. When last we left Vic Lorusso

he was charging to the M5, what is

the diagnosis. Minor accident

before the Campbelltown xi it.

Being minor, -- exit. Take a look

at that, we are happy I bet that we

are at home, not in peak hour

traffic. These motorists have taken

an hour to head from Moorebank to

Campbelltown, there's a break down

in the breaktown bay. Queues to the

south-west for the M5. The storm is

fast approaching from the north-

west having an impact from Richmond

Road to Richmond. Stay with us,

it's unusually warm, as Vic

mentioned there's a lot of rain

Our old rain Magnet Emily Rice is

at it. Rain all around Sydney,

she's managed to keep herself

indoors, by the look of some of

your company you may be better in

street, not at the hotels, I'm in a street, not at the hotels, I'm in a

store, a place you can buy

interesting stuff. It's called

Reverse Garbage, there's lots of

garbage here, but it's not junk.

You can come here and by stuff that

would have otherwise been thrown

would have otherwise been thrown

out but is made into stuff which is

pretty impressive. I'm joined by

Narelle. Explain some of the things

that you have on display that

people can buy, and what are the

things people throw you will.

Reverse Garbage is dedicated to

saving race or resources from

landfill. We get rolls of fabric,

clothing, bikes, 40 birdcages, you

name it, we get it here. People are

keen to do the right thing by the

environment these days, it's

working for us. You turn it into

something new or on-sell it. I

found a nice piece of clothing, I

think the crew will take some

things on This came in from a shop

that closed down and was prepared

to throw the stuff away. We said

"No, we'll make it available

cheaplyly, itself not garbage, it's

cheep resources. What is this. This

is a typical reverse garbage

customer, he's a performance artist.

He makes his costumes out of

Reverse Garbage materials. We get

artists, set designers, it's

inspirational here. Something not

so inspirational is the weather we

are having. Let's check out what

it's doing in your part of Sydney:

Rainfall tomorrow, it will clear

from New South Wales, leaving

scattered showers and alpine snow

over NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.
