Absolutely, and they have every

have about $630 million in assets,

properties that are completed,

Kevin Wilde, Ten News. to bus drivers DNA swab kits might be given to catch the growing number of passengers who spit on them.

The drastic action follows another shocking report on bus violence. The Transport Minister came for a good news announcement on extending the cashless bus network. Prepay ticket services now taking in most of the city's major corridors. Cashless buses work. They are cheaper and save time. But it seems driving buses in Sydney isn't easy. The latest figures reveal of offensive behaviour 369 incidences

between November and May. 345 rocks being thrown at buses, 45 verbal assaults, and 24 bus drivers reporting being spat upon. Some drivers, like Patrick Coleman. have been seriously injured. I got knocked out. Knocked out cold. You can see I lost my teeth here, broke my jaw, stitches in my lip. The Government has now agreed to look at a London decision to issue bus drivers with DNA kits so passengers who spit on them can be traced by police. would spit on another human being just carrying out their job. The Opposition supports the DNA testing move, but says the top priority is more visable policing, especially at night. Nothing replaces a strong police presence. The Government says there are no longer any bus no-go zones in Sydney. Paul Mullins, Ten News. Two men accused of being at the centre of a Sydney murder plot have been extradited from Melbourne. Michael Selim and Dennis Basic were taken aboard a Qantas flight bound for Sydney this afternoon.

They're accused of being recruited to murder crown witnesses in the trial of an alleged drug dealer. It's alleged they plotted with Swedish-born Sydney waitress Charlotte Lindstrom.

She faces charges of conspiracy to murder and soliciting murder. John Howard is finally getting his head above water with a new opinion poll showing him pegging Labor's lead. It's been a day of good news for the PM with a breakthrough at last on his plan to save the Murray Darling River. The Prime Minister's $10 billion plan to save the nation's most significant river system was sinking fast. Victoria's Steve Bracks was refusing to hand over powers, Mr Howard seemingly at a loss to know why. I don't know. There may be some political consideration involved in an election year. That infuriated the Premier, arriving for crisis talks in Sydney. And I think that's the problem the Prime Minister is grappling with. He looks at everything in terms of tricking it up for the election.

The problem, according to Mr Bracks, was also shared by the other States. This legislation is a grab for land and power. Those views were put to the Prime Minister and it quickly became apparent concessions had to be made. The Commonwealth finally were listening, and that was a good thing. And we're really delighted that Victoria is now going to play a positive role. The promising breakthrough came as the Galaxy poll saw an 8-point turnaround, for the Government to now be within striking distance of Labor. We still have a long way to go. We are still clearly behind. And there's nothing like a good scare campaign to keep the fightback going.

Mr Howard is standing by his claim climate change plans Labor's Peter Garrett's would lead to a recession. As a backbencher, in emissions by 2020. Mr Garrett canvassed a 20% cut to that target Labor has not committed but says to support the Prime Minister. there is no serious modelling hasn't even properly begun the task The Commonwealth Treasury

The number of starling birds in Tamworth is so massive that the city is resorting to drastic action. An ominous cloud descends upon Tamworth in scenes reminiscent of a Hitchcock horror. BIRDS SCREECH The starlings are back in town and they've brought along more than a few friends for their latest visit. There's a long history of starlings coming to Tamworth. Back to 1994. They have been coming into the city and finding a restful environment in the main street. Tamworth's renown for its country hospitality but the locals say this flock is stretching it. They used to just hang by a tree near the RSL. Now, they're in their thousands and take up half the city block. We've had an ongoing issue with fouling up the street, causing a lot of odour and just disrupting business and causing problems for our pedestrians.

Those streets made famous by buskers are now carpeted with bird calling cards, in a major headache for businesses and council. So the locals have hit back and unleashed a new strategy to deter the birds.

They closed off the main street, unfurled a massive net and after covering a culprit tree, bombarded the birds with water canon. The spectacle drew dozens of rugged-up curious bystanders but not so many birds. It was always meant to be a trial It's still a trial. I'd probably call it half-time at the moment. The starlings initially came to the region for the seed mixture fed to cattle and scraps from the waste depot. But they quickly discovered the city streets held much more appeal and decided to stay. Round one to the birds perhaps but they're on notice not to get too comfy. Amber Muir, Ten News.

Psychologists expressing concern at the trend towards fight clubs for kids. More violent confrontations in some of our top private schools. Two students at Toorak's St Kevins College slug it out as another boy records the punch-up on his mobile phone. It's now found its way onto the Internet. Psychologists point to a disturbing culture of cyber violence sweeping our schools, as students try to satisfy a seemingly endless demand for brutality. It is aggression, it is violent, it is criminal and they need to learn this is not the appropriate use of the technology. The footage emerged amid claims boys at another high-profile private school have even organised fight clubs where boys are selected to brawl for the entertainment of others present and on the Internet. This latest footage follows graphic footage of bullying at Kew's Xavier College which were posted on the Internet in April, prompting a storm of criticism. In a written statement, St Kevins says all the students involved, including the boy who filmed the incident,

have been disciplined, and Victoria Police consulted on preventing further images being posted on the Internet. The boys were suspended after the incident,

but experts say parents and schools aren't keeping up with their kids' grasp on technology. Schools need to do a lot more to be cyber savvy

and to find out what the youngsters are getting up to. Unfortunately they're way ahead of their parents and teachers. Gerard Scholten, Ten News. Claims tonight the terror plot to blow up New York's International Airport was badly flawed. As the suspects appeared in court, authorities revealed why the attack would have failed. The targets of the terror plot - fuel tanks at New York's Kennedy Airport and a jet fuel pipeline that fed into them. The alleged members of the terror cell are a group of Muslim men aged in their 50s from Guyana, in South America, and Trinidad, in the Caribbean. And the mastermind, 63-year-old Russell Muhammad Defreitas,

a former airport cargo handler

who the FBI had under surveillance for more than a year. He boasted of being a bomb maker. he's a terrorist. I would bet all my money that him being a mastermind is utterly ridiculous. Former Guyanese MP Abdul Kadir is under arrest, caught on surveillance tape plotting the JFK attack. We're praying and asking God for his help and guidance and begging, asking him to free my husband because he is not a terrorist. Trinidad citizen Karem Ibrahim was arrested aboard an aircraft bound for Venezuela with connections to Iran.

His wife says he was going to an Islamic conference. And still on the run, Pakistani-born Guyanese citizen Abdel Nur. US authorities say the plot was in its infancy

but became operational when they sought financial backing from an extremist Muslim group in Trinidad. But officials say the plan was flawed. Even if the tanks were bombed,

shut-off valves could easily contain the resulting fire. John Hill, Ten News. There's no shortage of naked ambition in Amsterdam.

The ACT Government wants your feedback

before making a decision. This program is captioned live. The top stories this news hour - John Howard has finally made a breakthrough on his water plan for the Murray-Darling River. The good news comes as the latest opinion polls show

the PM clawing back support with voters. A new approach to parking meters is proving a big hit in one inner-west suburb. Leichhardt Council is allowing drivers to stop for 15 minutes free, with small business also welcoming the move. And angry investors hit by the collapse of Australian Capital Reserve have been meeting in Sydney to find out how much they stand to lose. One of the company's directors has apologised for what happened. Thanks to the global warming debate, Australians are undoubtedly becoming greener, but environmentalists say too many of us are still overlooking the problem piling up in front of us - waste.

For all our worrying about global warming,

fretting over forests and carbon concerns, we still throw away around 34 million tonnes of waste each year. The huge landfill sites spread across the country are reminders of our modern, disposable lifestyles. While we keep on these consuming patterns of more waste, more convenience products, inevitably we can't get on top of the problem. Annually we produce more than 1.5 tonnes of rubbish for each Australian. That means a lot of electricity, a lot of transport involved, which means a lot of greenhouse pollution. While our waste output has been rising, this is what happens to almost half of it - millions of tonnes of plastic, paper, cardboard, metal and glass material are recycled in Australia each year. The contents of recycling bins across the nation end up on machines like these, to be sorted and saved. We can see a steady, solid increase of volume coming out of those council areas, not just due to population growth but also due to people taking recycling more seriously. Even if the ones who dump junk aren't taking it seriously enough. about 20% more waste than they do now Most States are aiming to recycle

to bring us into line with the world's top recyclers, like Germany. We see good, steady growth in recycling and a target much higher than what we do now is more than feasible. And it is still the simplest way, environmentalists say, to help save the planet. Danielle Isdale, Ten News. The Australian share market surged to new highs today buoyed by a confident US market and good commodity prices. And unleaded petrol is selling for an average of $1.33 a litre. But we found it as low as $1.26 at Narwee, Croydon, Haberfield, Lakemba, Caringbah and Campsie. for cervical cancer A new do-it-yourself testing kit

has hit the shelves. While the developers are talking it up as an alternative to pap smears there's a warning from doctors. Screening for cervical cancer is now as easy as using a tampon. That's the claim by a group of Sydney University researchers

who've developed Tam Pap - a do-it-yourself home kit that detects cervical cancer. The woman uses the tampon, collects the specimen,

sends it in the mail to a testing lab and her doctor is then notified of result. So, it's very simple. At a cost of $50 women can order the home testing kit though a chemist, over the phone, or online.

Believed to be a world-first, the test screens for the human papilloma virus which causes cervical cancer. It's private. You do it when you want to, it's not invasive in any way and it's going to give you an opportunity to find out before it's too late. But the AMA says research that forms the basis of the tampon test, is flawed. It's not a well-proven test, We have one example of a trial in the Netherlands - will that apply to Australian women? Will it replace a pap smear? No, I don't think so. every two years is important The AMA stress that a pap test

for screening a range of illnesses and diseases. Neither the AMA nor the Cancer Council are endorsing the self-sampling product. Both organisations are keen to emphasise a pap smear test is the best way to detect abnormal cells in a woman's cervix.

And that's integral in identifying pre-cancer stage. Don't give up your pap smear simply because you've done a test that you bought from the chemist. Catherine Kennedy, Ten News.

The Wests Tigers will be looking for seven straight wins tonight when they face Parramatta at Telstra Stadium to complete Round 12. Adam Hawse is at Telstra and can the Tigers stay on a roll?

The Tigers are pretty confident

about the game tonight - there is

one problem and that is that they

are playing their bogy side.

Parramatta have won their last five

games against the West Tigers and

tonight they are at full strength.

The dogs arrived back home today -

how is Cameron Phelps? I don't want

to put people off their dinner but

he spent nine it hours vomiting

last night it. He is looking better

but one needs scans before he can play again. for a run in first grade - it lasted three-and-a-half minutes. He's been knocked cold! Today he limped back into Sydney, happy but unable to celebrate

the Bulldogs' first win in four games. I've never felt that bad in my life. I've been knocked out a few times but yeah, I've never felt like that. Just my head was killing and I was vomiting non-stop. Knocked cold, Phelps can't recall the tackle, his first memory after the tackle. Getting told by a player, a person in the crowd, to, "Get up, you wuss!" That was when I was getting stretchered off. The winger also got little sympathy from his front row team-mate whilst recovering in his Auckland motel room. Mate, I went in and seen him a couple of times

but the room was pretty smelly. He'd vomited a few times - I opened the windows for him. I ordered a club sandwich and had it next door. Phelps has no hard feelings towards Warriors winger Michael Crockett, who's been charged and faces a 3-week ban. Better news for Cowboys and Maroons forward Jacob Lillyman - an early plea will see him escape suspension for taking out Brett Kimmorley. The Sharks skipper is a strong tip to be named NSW halfback tomorrow with team-mates Greg Bird and Paul Gallen also in the running. I think, until it gets named out, you're never quite sure. I was happy with the way I played As I said, and I think the fact we played in front of the NSW coach, it was a good game for us all to play well in. Noddy deserves his spot if Mullen's going to be out. he deserves a shot, too. All three of us work well together, especially me and Birdy. The aggressive Bird is eager to please. I like to play the game hard, but I'll do whatever they want me to do.

And then - I'm serious - I don't care because I can live my own life, I can leave. The Swans are now preparing to take on an in-form Hawthorn in Melbourne.

Choi fired 65 to win the title by one shot. Pampling and fellow Aussie Adam Scott were in the hunt until both bogeyed the 17th to effectively end their hopes of reeling in the Korean. They say to keep your eye on the ball, but here's proof that it's sometimes better to duck.

Mind you, it's good to have at least a bit of time to react. Unlike this American college baseball pitcher- the ball collected him just above the right eye. Ten minutes of treatment on the ground and he was off to hospital. The good news is he was up and moving around later on, but, undoubtedly with a very sore noggin.

Paris Hilton is spending her first night in prison. Ten's US bureau chief Nicole Strahan joins us live from Los Angeles. Nicole, red carpet one minute, jail cell the next - you've got some breaking news on Paris?

A short time ago we understand that

her lawyer picked up from home

along with her sister and her

mother. They were taken to the

men's County jail when she

officially handed herself in it to

authorities to serve her 23 day

jail term. She was then taken to

the women's prison where she will

serve the Tam for breaching the

conditions of her probation for

drink-driving offences. As you said,

a short time before that, just

merely hours, she was on the red

carpet at the awards ceremony where

she admitted she was scared about

her impending jail terms. Putting on a brave face before exchanging red carpet fashion for prison garb. I'm trying to be strong right now. I'm definitely scared but I'm ready to face my sentence. Paris Hilton's last outing was to the MTV movie awards before a 3-week jail term for violating her probation for drink-driving. I hope that I'm an example to other young people when they make decisions. It seems the impending time behind bars has already had an impact on the party girl, who says her faith in God is helping her cope. Even these past couple of weeks it's completely changed my life.

I've had a lot of time alone to think and to reflect on my life and realise what's most important. awards ceremonies, Perhaps that won't include

the socialite clearly upset at crude jokes told at her expense. In a couple of days Paris Hilton is going to jail. CROWD CHEERS Behind these walls Paris Hilton will be confined to a cell 3.5m by 2.5m in size. Each day she will be allowed out for about an hour to exercise, to watch television or make a telephone call using the the pay phone.

In Los Angeles, Nicole Strahan, Ten News.

Paris Hilton in jail - who would

have thought it? Nothing you want

to tell us about the last 10 days,
