It's not good enough to say,

Police speak very fast, it's very

hard for us. No matter who is

remains a young life, lost too soon.

As if family budgets aren't

stretched enough. The cost of

petrol now is inflicting new levels

of pain. It's only going to get

worse. Some service stations across

Sydney have upped their prices by

as much as 16 cents per litre.

Remember when Tuesday used to be

cheap petrol day? At Coles Express, it's

it's a distant memory. 17 cents

more than the nearest competitor

and other Shell outlets. In fact,

four times the highly publicised

shopper discount. I've only 15

litres, it's better than paying

another 15 cent per litre. We see

it increase to levels not seen since

since 2008. Last week there was a

rise in global barrel prices.

Father drivers who prefer to

premium unleded in their car, they

know they have to pay more. When

you see ethanol prices at this

price that has taxidrivers worried.

I have to spend $40. Since January,

You are watching pedestrians

playing Russian roulette on our

roads. But this is not a game. We

are very concerned with what

pedestrians are doing. The

behaviour is extraordinary. And

it's increased in the last five

years. The latest Sydney figures

show in 2010, there were more than 1300 accidents involving

pedestrians. Yet, more and more,

are defying the law and the obvious

dangers. Sir, do you rel lice that

you were jaywalking there? Yes, I

do. Isn't that terrible. Get the

police to arrest me. I did. You

weren't concerned about crossing

the road on the red man? I was

concerned about finding something

on my phone unfortunately. It takes

just one to get the crowd moving.

We are behaving like sheep. One

and local authorities fear the

risks are increasing, more people,

heavier traffic and less attention.

Many of them step off the footpath

without looking or stopping, and particularly listening, because

they have earplugs in or they're on

the phone or texting. The rise of

modern media has sparked an urgent

work safe review. It will be taking

submissions until the end of April.

While the fine has been upped to

$59, some councils have taken more

drastic steps, fencing off their

roads to force pedestrians to cross at the lights.

Jim Stynes was widely adored by AFL

fans. His story and death today has

touched and inspired people across

the nation. His braifr on the field

won him the game's highest honour.

His work with troubled children off

the field made him a great.

His pair nents Ireland should be

very, very proud of his

contribution to Australia, not only

of AFL but his manner in which he

cared about young people that hit

hard times. We will always remember

Jim as a great footballer, great

man and person of great courage and

someone who even in the depths of

his illness took the time to

inspire others. The Stynes family

has accepted an offer of a state

funeral. His wife says Jim died

peacefully from brain cancer

without pain. He was surrounded by

his family. He was 45.

On a brighter and somewhat lighter

note you may have missed the world

record or he may have.... But James

Magnussen has blasted his way to

his first Olympic team. He is

determined to dominate the 150m freestyle in London.

The rest of the world had better

muscle up. Brace yourselves.

There's a missile headed for London.

James Magnussen last night

reinforcing his gold medal in swimming's glamour event.

Just 0.19 of a second outside the

world mark. I've been telling

people since I was a young boy that

I would go to the Olympics. The

laidback 20-year-old is not only

fast along the black line but with

a one liner too. After meeting his

parents last night.... We know

where he gets it from. I'd take my

shirt off but I've got a better

body than him. Last night's race

was the fastest in the world since

supersuits were banned. I'm going

to do everything within my power to

break the world record. I want to

be considered the fastest man in

history. Just behind the Missile is

the man known as 1 rocket. James

Roberts finished second last night.

Magnussen clocked to win the world

title last year. The pair sharing

says the Greens are being funded by

the CIA to destroy the Australian

coal industry. Now, his argument is,

that the United States is trying to

do damage to the Australian

resources industry, so that its own

domestic industry can benefit. He

claims there is an organisation

called the rocker feller

organisation, the world knows that

as an institute. He says it's a CIA

organisation that is funnaling money

are part of the conspiracy. In the

election, all their candidates

should resign if they are funded by

Palmer's vast wealth is plainly no

A tornado has ripped through

Townsville, leaving hundreds of

residents homeless. Dozens of roofs

were ripped from houses in wind

early morning storm was worse than

Cyclone Yasi, which devastated the

Just massive devastation, like, we

Welcome back to Ten News. A Sydney

surge inhas pioneered a world first

technique for teenagers with

overbites. The procedure is

designed for 12-year-old to 14-

year-olds before any serious damage can develop.

This 14-year-old is all-smiles at

her check-up. Over a year ago she

wouldn't open her mouth for fear of

being rid called due to her

overbite and receding jaw. I got

teased practically every day. 25%

of Australians suffer, creating

cosmetic and health issues. The

biggest problems are to do with the

airway and then the teeth not

meshing at all. Jas minute are

breathing and snoring problems

while her lip was damaged. Traditional

Traditional medicine has pulled the

inner bite inwards. Sydney's new

medical centre inserts two small

cuts and inserts screws which

parents turn 1 millimetre every day.

It comes forward with the teeth,

that corrects the overbite. If we

look underneath, this starts to

widen here as well as this coming

forward. I was so worried it was

going to hurt. When I got them in I

thought, "Well it's not that bad,

not as bad as I was thinking."

Instead of facing procedures for up

to four years, this is only day

surgery. I look so different and am

so happy. I'm proud of myself. I

cannot talk highly about this.

There is no downsides to it. Vic

Our building industry has long been

a barometer of the economy.

Developers can't seem to pay their

bills and hundreds of workers are

now losing their jobs.

The financial crisis in Europe

means big businesses are going bust.

And that's sending Australian workers broke.

Developers aren't paying builders

and in turn workers are waiting for

their wages each week. They are not

getting paid on time. Some aren't

getting paid at all It's

devastating. I've seen workers put

on the scrap heap. Many tradies had

a gutful. I estimate 50,000

families moving to a different

state, because they can't keep

working in NSW. The state of the

economy in NSW is no different to

what it is in Greece at the moment.

Tony is owed $5 hundred thousand

for work on the greast western

highway. I've been in business for

some time so I'm able to roll with

the punches. Many of the

contractors probably will lose

their homes, their lively hoods.

The State Government is taking

action. They gave money under the

condition it would filter through

to the subcontractors. There is an

inquiry under way to ensure that

happened. If not, legal action is

imminent. Builders believe Barry

O'Farrell could do more. It

disturbs us that most contractors

are hung out to dry while this

argument continues. My grandmother

always told me, "An apple a day

keeps the doctor away." Apple

shares have done wonders for investors's portfolios. Sales of

the iPad have topped 3 million

units. The best release of an iPad

to date. Last night, it announced a

dividend for the first time in 15

years. Now, believe it or not,

Apple sits in about 92 billion

dollars of cash. Today, the Reserve

Bank released the minutes from the

last trait meeting. No surprise,

saying it's optimistic about the

state of the economy. David Jones

team work, so much can be achieved.

extraordinary. The occasion was the

this is a home from home, a

my children, if they have it, can be

be treated. The mother of two was

tested along with her sister. It

followed the discovery that her

father had the gene after four

heart attacks and open-heart

surgerys. If you know you have it,

it goes down the line, through your

children, grandchildren. WA, NSW

are kurpbtdly the only states

running the program. This family

are among hundreds who have been

screened. The best thing is that my

children can be examined and

treated from the age of five. And

if they can find it, we can manage it,

it, so nothing bad ever happens to

them. 50,000 Australians have the

gene. More than 80% are unaware

they are at risk. Doctors say early

detection gives young people the

chance to alter their life styles.

You can receive treatment with

lifestyle, diet, and medication, that lower cholesterol to prevent

you developing a heart attack in

future life. The screening program

It's the week where Australia's two biggest winter sports go head-to-

head in Sydney's west. Today, the

AFL took centre stage by launching

the Swans Giants derby. It won't

gift rival card a free kick. After

two years of talk, it's time to get

it on. AFL took to the harbour, Rugby League hit the road.

Nothing more Westie than the M4. At

the end of the day, you know, it's

Rugby League heart land for a

reason, it's working class

community. It's where the battle is

being fought. The western Sydney

academy where they work part-time

with former NRL star. I think the

statistics show Rugby League is the

number one sport. Motorists are

given a reprieve as the four

western clubs pose for a poster of

which thousands will be sent to

local schools. This, though, is not about

about running a rival sport out of

town. Look, to tell you the truth,

I don't care about the GWS. The

clash of codes to intensify

tomorrow. There will be an AFL air-

raid into Sydney. A western derby on

on Friday. And Giants debut against

the Swans on Saturday. The Bulldogs

and Tigers home games. Israel Folau

paid millions to be the draw card.

We'll let him out, bang, first

quarter. It will have many watching.

Fou fou will play his first game.

That will be my five minutes worth.

For the West, this week is going to

be a little different.

Tomorrow - on a wing and a prayer -

we open up about life away from footy.

The inaugural White Ribbon trophy

has been launched under the Sydney

Harbour Bridge. It's the annual

Sydney derby. The first double z at

the debut on Saturday night.

Libby Trickett has another chance

tonight to book a ticket to the

Olympics. And somebody who won't be

at the Games Ian Thorpe. His return

to the pool after his failed

attempt to qualify. Two days after

his Olympic comeback fell flat. Ian

Thorpe is poolside. He is still

having fun. Few would be enjoying

themselves more than James

Magnussen. Hours after winning the

100m freestyle. He was back this

morning posting a personal best over

over 50m. I'm happy with my skills

and dive and underwater. It's

improved a lot since last year.

James Magnussen was 1900th of a

second off the world record 100m.

Now that I sit back and look at

last night's swim, it's a pain in

the bum that I got down that close

and didn't get it. But, you know,

I'm confident I'll get it at the

Olympics. His coach agrees,

revealing James Magnussen has been

suffering a chest infection. He has

been crook for a few days. Too

tonight is about returning stars.

Likewise, Michael Klim, ninth

fastest this morning. Libby

Trickett has what she describes as

her best chance of making the

London team, needing to finish in the top six.

Ten commentator joins us now. It's

Libby Trickett's moment of truth

tonight? Wouldn't her smile be

beaming if she could actually get

there. She needs to finish top six

to make it for an individual spot.

There are many girls swimming

exceptionally fast. Our other

comeback kids, Michael Klim is

trying to make the 100m butterfly

final. They will like you for

calling them kids. It will be a

tough ask. The older boys are

pacing themselves a little better.

They weren't the fastest through

this morning in the heats. They

don't need to be. They've made it

through to the semifinals. Top

eight tonight will see them into

the final and anything is possible. Great night.
