Ten's State Parliament reporter, to remember those who made Sydneysiders paused briefly today for their country. the ultimate sacrifice Services across the city marked the 90th anniversary of the armistice which ended World War I. A haunting military beat, and a sombre mood - the bustling city centre stopped to remember. Dignitaries and civilians, old and young,

together to mark the end of the first World War, 90 years ago. At 11am on the 11th of November 1918

the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of war. For those who've served the pain is still present, particularly as the clock chimed 11 times. When the silence comes you do get emotional, it seems silly after all these years. For one minute there was plenty of emotion, but not a sound at the Cenotaph. Commuters were still at Central Station, and the Australian Rugby League team, stood strong and silent. Sadly, in Pitt Street Mall, it's a moment that passed without recognition. But the significance wasn't lost on everyone, 21st century teenagers - boys the same age as those who fought long ago - trying to understand the horror of war. it's really upsetting, but it's good that we can remember and understand and learn about it. on the past, but thinking of the future. If the young people just remembered

that it had to be done for them to have a life. Last night, a modern icon was lit to reflect the blood spilled in a war fought long ago on fields far away. Remembrance Day has taken on a deeply personal note for the families of five Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan. Their sacrifice was recognised today with their names added to the long list of Australia's fallen soldiers at the War Memorial in Canberra. Tears of remembrance - today was particularly poignant for the family and friends of five Australian soldiers who died in Afghanistan in the past 13 months. Trooper David Pearce, Sergeant Matthew Locke, Private Luke Worsley, Lance Corporal Jason Marks and Signaller Sean McCarthy were killed in action since just October 2007. Today their names were added to the roll of honour at the Australian War Memorial. In the nation's capital, thousands gathered. We commit ourselves afresh to the great cause of peace. We honour them. Young and old, leaders and dignitaries, all united remembering our fallen Australians. Also remembered were the 3,000 Australian men and women still serving in conflict zones and as peacekeepers around the world.

I feel proud that we've still got troops that are serving their country and doing their best to ensure Australia's ongoing freedom and security. Soldiers returned from wars past heed their experience are hoping others It teaches you - you forget it sometimes - to value people and value every day. Meg Palmer, Ten News. Extreme security today as five Sydney men went on trial accused of terrorism. The court heard

they obtained firearms and bomb-making chemicals, while possessing material advocating violent jihad. The five men accused of plotting to carry out a terrorist act, were driven from Silverwater Jail in a high security convoy. Police closed a street at Parramatta as the van arrived at court. On trial are Sydney men Mohamed Elomar, Abdul Hassan, Mohammed Jamal, Mostafa Cheikho and Khaled Cheikho. Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Mamdouh Habib was outside court protesting against Australia's terrorism laws. Federal police and the ASIO, the ASIO official knock on the door, and take your wife away from you. Justice Anthony Whealy told the jury that Islam was not on trial and that they were to put prejudice aside. Crown prosecutor Richard Maidment said the accused men had conspired to prepare a terrorist act. He alleged the men obtained chemicals which could be used to construct a bomb, and police surveillance intercepted conversations and evidence seized from homes would prove their guilt. The Crown alleges the men believed Islam was under attack and that they had an obligation to defend their religion by performing violent jihad. Australia's military involvement in Iraq and Afganistan motivated the men to join the conspiracy, according to the prosecution. The trial is expected to last a year. John Hill, Ten News.

Alana Smith was playing in the yard of her Central Coast home with her neighbours, when the large Rottweiler wandered into the property. She was playing with him and trying to feed him a biscuit. Then it just bit her face off. She remains in a serious condition after facial reconstructive surgery at Westmead Children's Hospital. Police have applied to have the dog destroyed. A young life hangs in the balance after a police pursuit through Sydney's west. The 14-year-old was allegedly behind the wheel of the car when it crashed at high speed. The pursuit lasted less than a minute but reached speeds of up to 150km/h. Police were stunned

that the foot on the pedal belonged to a driver so young. A 14-year-old driving a car around is just an accident waiting to happen. He was trapped in the car for more than an hour, pinned in by his legs. His 16-year-old passenger was freed much sooner. Police pursued the car after it sped away from the scene of a race-related brawl at a nearby McDonald's restaurant.

The car collided with a van before slamming into a telegraph pole and a brick fence. The driver's side has clipped the pole and has crunched the pole. He's done a complete spin, he's ended up facing that way there. Residents heard the sickening crash just after 8:00 last night. The guys in there were screaming. Yeah, they were in a bad way. Could you hear what they were saying? Oh, just, "Help! Help me! Help me!" Screaming, yeah. It was pretty disturbing, actually, yeah. The teenagers were taken to Westmead Hospital, where they remain in a critical condition. God willing, they will pull through this and at an appropriate time we'll seek to interview them. The fact that there are no skid-marks on the road whatsoever adds weight to concerns that the car's brakes simply didn't work at all. Police aren't yet sure if the car was borrowed with consent or stolen. Evan Batten, Ten News. and would like to see your pictures on Ten News, email them to:

An even bigger bailout package is in the pipeline to keep unprofitable ABC Learning childcare centres open into the new year. The Federal Government has already provided $22 million to ensure 400 unprofitable ABC centres stay open until December 31st. We're then going to work through it step by step, centre by centre so we can give people the long-term security for the future, and we will do that through a statement in December. Ms Gillard says

the Government is talking with other childcare providers interested in taking over the centres run by ABC Learning.

There's been a huge health breakthrough that could save an untold number of lives. It involves a pill that can halve the rate of heart attack and stroke in certain people. When Carmine Callisto lost his father to a sudden heart attack eight years ago, he wasn't taking any chances. He went to his doctor and discovered he, too, had high cholesterol. The next step was to get on the medication, which I've been on for about 7.5 years now, and my cholesterol is perfect. Now a worldwide trial of 18,000 people has found statins can lower the incidence of heart attack and stroke by half in people with healthy levels of cholesterol.

Australian doctors say it's a significant breakthrough in fighting cardiovascular disease. Anything that we can do to prevent disease rather than just treating it when it happens is a major step forward for any health system, really proving that prevention is better than cure.

All the participants in the trial, which used the drug Crestor, did have increased levels of a protein called CRP, which may put them at greater risk of heart problems in future. The Heart Foundation definitely supports the use of statins for people with high cholesterol, and this is an interesting study. We would strongly recommend

Heart disease is the number one killer of Australians, claiming 46,000 lives a year.

That's one death every 10 minutes. Doctors say this study could potentially help halve that toll. Carmine is glad medication works for him and hopes others can benefit. Hopefully it means I'm going to live a few more years. Jemma Chapman, Ten News. Now to the ING Direct finance report with Jacqueline Maddock,

and it's a case of good news, bad news tonight, Jacqui. Let's start with the good news OK, let's do it, Ron. Virgin Blue is cutting the fuel levy on its airfares - only by 20%, though, and only on domestic fares. The airline says a reversal of its February fuel charge spike is warranted, as the price of jet fuel has fallen from a record high in July. Qantas has responsed by saying it slashed its fuel charge on international and domestic tickets last month. Business confidence in Australia has officially collapsed. According to NAB's monthly survey, corporate Australia is now more pessimistic about the economy than it has been in 20 years, although the survey was conducted ahead of the latest interest rate cut. Profit takers kept the local market in the red today. Property trusts were the best performers while the financials were hardest hit. Capital-raising envy kept the majors down after NAB shares resumed trading following yesterday's $3 billion share placement. At the closing bell the All Ords was down more than 3%.

In a symbolic and historic step, US President-elect Barack Obama has visited the White House to meet George W. Bush. It was also an important meeting for the future first lady. Less than a week after winning the US election, Barack Obama went to Washington, coming face to face with the man he'll soon replace in the White House. The official photos over, a stroll with the George W. Bush to the Oval Office - the future leader's first time in the famous room. Behind closed doors the two men talked for just over an hour, the crumbling US economy and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan the main topics. It's just very private and I'm sure that this won't be the only time that they speak. Attacks on the unpopular US President were a key part of the Obama campaign strategy. Mr Bush has vowed to make the transition as smooth as possible, but Mr Obama is believed to be considering reversing some of the President's decisions and wants to close the US military prison Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. Beyond politics, Michelle Obama toured the White House's living quarters - It will be home to the Obamas after inauguration day on January 20,

but the younger Obamas, daughters Malia and Sasha, missed out on the occasion, their father seeing to it that school came first before he headed to Washington.

Tonight's major stories - extreme security as five Sydney men face trial on terror charges. The Supreme Court in Parramatta heard they obtained firearms and bomb-making chemicals, while possessing material advocating violent jihad. Sydneysiders paused briefly today to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Services across the city marked the 90th anniversary of the armistice which ended World War I. And motorists to pay dearly following the State Government mini-budget. Tolls on the Harbour Bridge will increase to $4 during the morning and afternoon peaks, with lower charges at other times of the day. Motoring groups are fuming, with the change widely regarded as a de facto congestion charge. And we're joined now by the man behind the blueprint, State Treasurer Eric Roozendaal. Treasurer, this is a congestion tax by stealth. Do you think it's going to win you any friends?

uncertain economic times. We have

Rolf Harris has recorded a stirring new version of his 1960s classic 'Two Little Boys'. He's broken down while discussing the song, revealing a tragic coincidence. SONG: # Two little boys had two little toys, # Each had a wooden horse. # As a nation remembers, Rolf Harris has re-recorded 'Two Little Boys' with a choir to raise funds for the British Legion. It has an added poignancy for Rolf, who's only recently discovered that his father and his uncle both fought alongside each other in the First World War. My dad was patched up and sent off to recuperate and his brother Carl wasn't. He was hit with shrapnel on the right leg and all his femoral artery was just shredded and he bled to death while they were trying to patch him up. ALL SING: # Do you think I would leave you dying # When there's room on my horse for two? # A simple enough tale of comradeship, but in an age when war continues to cost, its words are as powerful as ever. # I can go just as fast with two. # "Do you think I would leave you?" You know, it just gets me again. "Do you think I would leave you dying?" Oh dear, it is very powerful. # When we were two little boys. # And Ten's Europe correspondent Danielle Isdale is in France, where hundreds of Australians are gathering for Remembrance Day commemorations. The tiny township of Villers-Bretonneux, nestled in the heart of the Somme region in France, is a very special place for Australia. It was here, 90 years ago, that Australian soldiers fought and died to liberate this area and stop the Germans' advance into Paris. And that, in the bigger picture, 1,500 diggers were wounded or died in a single day in the battle of Villers-Bretonneux, and it is their sacrifice, and indeed, the sacrifice of the 46,000 Australians who lost their lives on the Western Front in World War I, that will be remembered in a special service - a 90th anniversary of Armistice Day commemoration. It's the first time the Australian Government has organised a service here in Villers-Bretonneux, on Remembrance Day and it's on the back of a very successful Anzac Day commemoration. Earlier this year, 5,000 Australians turned up here to pay their respects and it's expected that several hundred will do the same. I think it's important that all Australians remember how many Australians gave their lives so that we could live the lifestyle that we do. Lots of young Australians, part of their coming-of-age is travelling the world and visiting Gallipoli and that, of their travels and their route, and I think this could be part to learn more of the history. It's all part of a plan to refocus on the battles of the Western Front, to bring them out of the shadow of Gallipoli for commemoration services. War historians say that there is enough room in the hearts and minds of all Australians to commemorate them both and to remember those who fell, not just in the Great War, but in all the wars and conflicts since.

Nicole Kidman has finally shown off her pride and joy Sunday Rose to the world. The doting mother sharing one of her private photos during a revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey. It's Nicole's first TV interview since she gave birth four months ago, Can you see, guys, can you see? So who do you think she looks like right now? More like you or Keith? Oh, so much like Keith. You think so? I call her Keithette. Keithette! How did you manage to stay so thin during your pregnancy? I worked out through it. Not don't take your heart-rate over 130, 135,

when you're working out and stuff, but it was just good for my head. You worked out until the last day, that you delivered, I heard? Oh, no, no. That's what I heard. Till the last week. Oprah dedicated a whole show to the movie 'Australia' - and is clearly a fan. Listen, I have not been this excited over a movie since I don't know when. But Oprah was keen to get Nicole to open up on life at home. Was it difficult to go through, in public, Keith's rehab? I think it was four months after you guys had been married. Was that difficult for you? Devastating. Devastating? Yeah. Nicole also revealing son Connor's keen for her to have another baby. Connor's like, "I want a boy! Why don't you have a boy?" Why don't you? God's plan.

Plus, the Wallabies line up to receive the Royal seal of approval.

This program is captioned live. Ricky Ponting has hit back at widespread criticism of his captaincy The Australians last night slumped to their first series loss since the 2005 Ashes. If Indian celebrations weren't hard enough to stomach, a double whammy for Ricky Ponting -

forced to defend accusations that he put himself before the team. To tell the truth, I'm a little bit disappointed with some of the criticism, probably particularly from former Australian captains and Cricket Australia board members. A reference to Allan Border, the man whose name adorns the trophy India last night reclaimed from Australia. I'd like to think that as far as team players go there haven't been many more that have ever played for Australia that would do things more than I would for the teams. Ponting is accused of letting India off the hook by using his part-time bowlers to speed up a slow over rate. Had he used his strike bowlers he could have been suspended for next week's first Test against the touring New Zealanders. He's a pretty ruthless guy. I think any chance he can to get a win he'll take it, people are sitting back here so I suppose that's why and questioning it. I feel I have a lot of responsibilities to play the game in the right spirit. 90 overs in a day's play. I have an obligation to try and bowl Ponting's unhappy Test continued with the bat, run out cheaply as Australia chased an unlikely 382 for victory. COMMENTATOR: It's massive! Massive! Once Matthew Hayden and Michael Hussey departed, Australia folded for just 209. One of the bright spots

was Jason Krejza's Man of the Match award for his 12 wickets on debut, Pretty unbelievable really. I haven't really realised exactly the extent of what I've actually done yet. The Australian team arrives home tonight. Leanne West, Ten News. The Kangaroos say they're ready for a backlash from Jarryd Hayne after he helped Fiji into the World Cup semifinals. Hayne was playing for Australia just 12 months ago but will line up against them on Sunday night. The Kangaroos won't have too much to worry about against Fiji, but they are wary Jarryd Hayne. of jilted former team-mate (ALL SING) talented player. Jarryd's a very, very so I'm sure he'll be wanting to prove some people wrong and that he deserved to be in the team. Hayne has bounced back well from his Roos rejection, scoring a crucial try in Fiji's win over Ireland last night. It came just 12 months after he was doing the same thing for Australia, but like his form for the Eels, Hayne was hot and cold against the Irish. COMMENTATOR: He takes on the fullback and runs around Jarryd Hayne!

Joy for Ireland was short-lived, Fiji guaranteeing some sore heads for their flight home, the Wolfhounds turning bloodhounds. ..can't take a trick, the Wolfhounds at the moment. At a coaching clinic in Sydney's west Petero Civoniceva predicted his country of birth is the NRL's next great nursery. To get them at a young age and to bring them over and to give them a taste of the NRL standard - I think we would certainly see some superstars come away from Fiji. Logos of their alcohol sponsor were blocked by some of the Kangaroos as they mixed with league-loving youngsters. Adam Hawse, Ten News. The Wallabies have taken time out of their spring tour for tea and cucumber sandwiches at Windsor Castle. While meeting the Queen was a new experience for much of the squad,

who, as the youngest member of the squad, has to keep guard of the team's unofficial mascot. She asked me about Wally. Well, I just told her. but, yeah, she's a nice lady. The Wallabies take on England at Twickenham on Sunday, our time. And that match is live on Ten and Ten HD from 1am, with a full replay on Ten from 2pm Sunday afternoon. A chronic hamstring injury has forced former Socceroo and Sydney FC captain Tony Popovic to call it quits. The 35-year-old made the decision after Friday night's 2-1 loss to the Wellington Phoenix. As an athlete you just know, you just know when the time's right, and when you're not getting out of yourself what you can. You want to do it, but it's just not there any more. Popovic represented the country on 59 occasions over 12 years,

the highlight coming when he lined up against Brazil in the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

And police have stepped in at a Bolivian club match to force off a player who'd refused to leave the pitch despite being red-carded. But it only made his team-mates from the Aurora club see red.
