The bank has blamed the global credit crunch for the rise to its standard variable home loan rate to 9.47%. The skills shortage is starting to bite, with Australian companies saying they need 250,000 workers just to meet demand. And most say their performance is suffering as a result. now a clear sense of the impact of a national skills shortage. CEOs from companies large and small delivering the worrying news. The fact that we don't have the skills - they don't have the skilled people with the innovative capacity to drive their business forward - should a concern for everyone.

The Australian Industry Group and Deloitte survey estimates 250,000 skilled workers are needed just to meet current demand,

and 68% of companies say that's hurting their ability to innovate and perform. More concerning, they reveal 46% of employees don't have adequate literacy skills

for the modern workplace. Whether it's in retail, whether it's in mining, whether it's in manufacturing, we're going to have to lift the knowledge levels

of the Australian workers, is going to grow slower otherwise the Australian economy when the big boom stops. Consultants Deloitte warn companies must be innovative to compete,

with clear things they can do themselves. Is to be more formal in the way they train and develop their people but not only technically but also in the way you might train them to be innovative, creativity training, exposure to the arts, culture, more numeracy training. Skills aside, some companies are facing more basic challenges. Large retailers like David Jones are now actually cutting the hours their staff are working because the slowdown in the economy is having an impact on their sales. Some stores have seen an 8% slide in the sales of big-ticket items like large-screen TVs and furniture as consumers curb their spending. Eddy Meyer, Ten News. The bells of Sydney's St Andrew's Cathedral tolled 645 times as families gathered to pay tribute to the sailors lost in the sinking of HMAS 'Sydney' almost 70 years ago. There were also kind words for the enemy crew. More than 700 relatives of the 'Sydney's crew came to pay their respects and remember. Two sisters recalled the last time they saw their father, Chief Petty Officer Edward O'Brien, in 1941. They had a march through Sydney, all the men from the 'Sydney' and Dawn and I were there with all our family, waving and cheering them on. Stoker Robert Kennedy's family is relieved the wreckage of the ship has finally been found. Immense relief and a lot of closure, it's given us closure, the family. The cathedral's bell rang out 645 times, once for each man who died. We remember their courage, their determination and their diligence as they gave their all to protect us from oppression. There were tributes to the 'Sydney's crew

and their enemy on the 'Kormoran'. As we remember our own men and those who grieve for them, we extend our sympathies to the families of the German sailors who lie nearby. All agreed the 'Sydney's discovery solved a national mystery. But to the families of those who gave their lives, the wreckage of the HMAS 'Sydney' represents much more - it's the tomb and the final resting place of their loved ones. I know where he is now. I didn't know and my mother could never tell me whether I had a father or whether I didn't till the war was finished so now I know where he is. The memorial service bringing relief to long-suffering families. John Hill, Ten News. Ahead in sport with Tim Webster - claims the Rabbitohs are on Mission Impossible this weekend. Yes, Darren Lockyer says he's ready and waiting for them at the Broncos, more shortly. but the Wests Tigers claim they're not grandstanding about Robbie Farah's chances of a comeback They even delivered a special message to the Sharks.

Australia develops an extra-potent flu vaccine - details next. Plus, a council's laser sky show closed after a close encounter with a helicopter.

Engineers have been called in over claims that homes are being cracked by heavy drilling for Sydney's desalination plant. One of the houses is just metres from where Sydney Water is pile-driving

as it steps up construction. The vibrations are shaking homes and residents are worried any existing cracks might be opened up. The Premier says construction noise levels are being monitored and residents will be compensated for any damage. The latest laser attack on an aircraft over Sydney has been blamed on a piece of artwork.

Parramatta Council has been forced to shut down the laser sculpture after its beams hit the Ten traffic chopper. It had all the hallmarks of another helicopter laser attack. The Ten News traffic chopper flashed repeatedly for 20 minutes while flying low over Parramatta. shooting up towards the helicopter. these constant green beams were

reporter Vic Lorusso in the eye. One of the beams caught For 10 seconds, at least 10 seconds I had blurry vision in my right eye, rubbing my right eye. The pilot managed to avoid being hit but police moved in, armed with the Premier's new laws,

to crack down on laser pranksters. This could be mass murder. Bringing a plane down in a residential area is catastrophic. But what they found was a flashy street sculpture installed by Parramatta Council five months ago. It works by projecting laser light onto netting above Church Street and surrounding buildings. The light only operates for a few hours in the evening and we've simply decomissioned that. It won't be on at all

until we've had the investigation to find out what was the problem and of course make sure it can't happen again. But council is struggling to work out what went wrong last night. The lasers are supposed to be tamper-proof and were designed to avoid drivers on the ground and pilots in the air. The sky above Parramatta is frequently used by emergency helicopters transporting patients to nearby Westmead Hospital. But any amount of time for a pilot to be disoriented at 2,000 feet 1,500 feet, in an aircraft, is a dangerous situation. So it's a case of lights out for Parramatta's flashy street art. Daniel Sutton, Ten News. An award-winning author has been charged with drugs and firearm offences after a raid on the State's South Coast. Celebrated crime writer Bernie Matthews, who has also lectured to law enforcement students, is facing 20 charges. Detectives allegedly seized rifles and a self-loading pistol, $150,000 worth of MDMA as well as an estimated and crystal meth, also known as ice. A 29-year-old Cabramatta man has also been arrested.

A P-plater has been charged with drink-driving and speeding after crashing his car in front of police at Five Dock.

Officers claim the car was travelling at 110km/h in a 60km/h zone on Parramatta Road before the early-morning smash. The 24-year-old's blood alcohol reading was allegedly more than twice the legal limit.

An American judge has ruled he be given access to important patient records. Nicole Strahan has more from the US. The case has returned to court in Portland, Oregon, where Dr Patel's lawyer has argued for copies of medical records of several patients. Dr Patel's lawyer believes these documents are essential to the defence case to stop the extradition of Dr Patel to Australia.

Specifically, lawyer Marc Blackman wants to see pathology reports, nursing and surgery notes and in one case records of prior radiation treatment. The judge has given Dr Patel's lawyer until the end of the week to specify how many of the 500 pages of documents he wants. After that, Australian authorities, through the US attorneys, will have until May 2 to hand them over. 58-year-old Dr Patel has been behind bars in Portland

since his arrest last month. He was denied bail but his lawyer does have the option of applying for his release again. Dr Patel, a US citizen, has been charged with more than a dozen offences, including manslaughter, grievous bodily harm and fraud at Bundaberg Base Hospital. over his time as surgeon The extradition hearing but it's possible this legal process Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are back on the campaign trail, A day after her victory in Pennsylvania, the former first lady was in Indiana, appealing for donations. was pushing supporters to unite against the Republicans. They will see the choice

between John McCain and the Democratic nominee and they will say to themselves, "This is a clear choice." Republican presidential candidate John McCain has been campaigning in a Kentucky coal town, promising tax cuts to create jobs.

It's a case of renovation revenge. A builder has destroyed a porch and sunroom he erected last Christmas because he still hasn't been paid. He's now $40,000 out of pocket. The house is owned by the local council but the tenant was given permission for the renovations, at her own cost. The whole thing has been just an absolute nightmare for me, for my company, for my staff. The council is planning to send the tenant a bill for the cost of removing the rubble and repairing the damage. They say you are what you eat but what if your diet could determine the sex of your baby? British researchers believe mothers hoping for a boy should eat bigger breakfasts. So it seemed to work for you, in your case, you never missed breakfast and that's one of the things... I joined the model and author Lisa B. for breakfast. She is a firm believer in the mother's ability to influence the sex of her child. She realised whilst researching a book that she had had a diet now associated with the conception of boys. She now has two, after eating what experts say is food high in energy. I did eat things like that. I ate bananas and I ate porridge in the morning

and I had lots of sushi, which meant, of course, lots of soy sauce and a big, sort of, egg and bacon breakfasts. I love my bacon. Research carried out by the universities of Exeter and Oxford 740 first-time pregnant women and involving shows that those who consumed the most calories, the most nutrients, were more likely to conceive boys. Over the past 40 years the number of boys born in industrialised countries has been falling. It means, say researchers, skipping breakfast - now increasingly common in the developed world - for those hoping for a son. We know that in in vitro fertilisation male embryos are favoured by having a high concentration of glucose around them, so it might be that in a natural diet if a woman has been, for example, skipping breakfast she may have very low blood sugar in the morning and that may be the reason why boy embryos are selected against. It's thought the evolutionary drive to produce descendants may be key, but some mothers need convincing. But at the end of the day I don't think I don't think you can really - we can't play God. It's up to nature to decide whether it is a boy or a girl.

So if you thought it was just about the X or Y chromosome, maybe you have to think again. Nina Nannar, Ten News. Australian researchers have developed a vaccine

10 times the strength of traditional flu shots.

It's so potent, it could immunise half the world's population. An Australian development with global significance. Every year hundreds of thousands of elderly patients with chronic diseases die from influenza or its complications. Funded by the US Government, researchers at Flinders University in Adelaide have boosted the regular influenza vaccine. By adding a natural plant extract found in dahlia flowers, the body's immune system is amplified. We don't need to generate a whole new vaccine. We can just add on this technology and end up with a dramatically more potent vaccine. And it's not just for the flu. The plant extract can be added to any vaccination, from malaria to hepatitis and tetanus. 10 times more potent.

Better yet, it makes each dose We can take current global capacity, which is about 300 million doses across the world, and potentially stretch that to 3 billion doses. In effect, protecting half the world's population, potentially making it our best defence against bird flu. This could be the difference between life and death by a serious flu epidemic. if we're confronted

Because the adjuvant is natural and non-toxic, it increases patient tolerance to the vaccine. So sid effects like soreness and sickness are significantly reduced.

Clinicians are now recruiting 1,000 elderly and sick people to participate in the trial. The vaccine should be available by next year. Still to come, the soaring number of households under mortgage stress. Also tonight, new pressure to find a World War II hospital ship which sank off our coast.

Tonight's major stories - organisers claim the Canberra leg of the Olympic torch relay was an outstanding success. Thousands of pro-Chinese demonstrators flooded the national capital's streets for the event. They far outnumbered pro-Tibetan protesters trying to highlight human rights concerns. And hundreds pay tribute to loved ones lost in the sinking of HMAS 'Sydney' during World War II. The bells at St Andrew's Cathedral tolled 645 times, once for each of the vessel's crew members. HMAS 'Sydney' went down off the West Australian coast in 1941. The discovery of HMAS 'Sydney' has reignited the push to solve another of Australia's great maritime mysteries. The hospital ship 'Centaur' lies somewhere just off Brisbane - a missing war grave for more than 260 souls. VOICE-OVER: It was a Japanese submarine that sank the Australian hospital ship 'Centaur' off the Australian coast. That was nearly 65 years ago. Now, somewhere in the waters east of North Stradbroke Island, lies the last great Australian maritime mystery of World War II. of any merchant ship sunk in the Pacific in World War II. 268 doctors, nurses and servicemen died. 64 more survived after spending a day and a half in the water. And I went down with the suction of the ship and I thought that I would not come up again. The wreck has never been found, but last month's discovery of HMAS 'Sydney' has reignited calls for a new search with new technology. doesn't end there... Because after the 'Kormoran' sank, the survivors, or some of the survivors, were picked up by the 'Centaur'. After much conjecture and several fruitless searches over the years, experts now believe they've narrowed the area

to within a few nautical miles. They say the geosounder used to find the 'Sydney' would make short work of finding the 'Centaur'. What's needed is government funding similar to that gained by the Find the 'Sydney' Foundation. There's no question in my mind how important these things are to families - to give closure to some, to provide answers for others.

Jan Thomas lost her father, and says finding and protecting the 'Centaur' must become a national priority. Finding 'Centaur', though, will go a long way towards helping that healing process. Max Futcher, Ten News. School students will be given the opportunity to visit historical battlefields through a new scholarship scheme. The scholarships will be open to groups of up to 10 students aged 14 to 18. It's a wonderful opportunity for the people who receive the scholarships to go overseas and visit these places. it changed my life. For me personally, It was a surreal sensation being able to follow in the footsteps of a relative I'd never known. The first scholarship will involve students travelling to Gallipoli next year. And a reminder, we will be on air a little later tomorrow for Anzac Day. Our bulletin will start at 5:30pm after the Round 6 AFL clash between Collingwood and Essendon. Now to the finance report. Here's Cindy Pismiris from BankWest. Late this afternoon, ANZ Bank increased its variable mortgage interest rates by 10 points.

The rise takes effect on Monday and lifts the home loan rate to 9.47%. More than 80,000 Australians could lose their homes by September due to mortgage stress made more likely by the 17-year high in interest rates. The rising costs of food, fuel and housing have pushed inflation up and could force another interest rate hike by the RBA. 1 million home owners are now feeling the pinch

of the global credit squeeze in mortgage payments. and paying up to $5,000 a year extra

With bank mortgage rates now running at around 9%, every rise of 0.25% pushes another 150,000 households to the brink. Taking a look at today's figures. Mincor Resources rose on strong production forecasts. Caltex fell after saying it may cut output,

A galaxy of international stars has landed in town for this weekend's MTV Awards. But there was an embarrassing blunder at the news conference to launch the event. It's a question a lot of people want answered. Is it 'Mischa' or 'Meesha'? It's 'Meesha'.

With that out of the way, former 'OC' star Mischa Barton was free to pose in her frock about her recent arrest for drink-driving. In fact, a DUI charge seems to be a popular accessory for special guests at this year's MTV Australia Awards - rapper Eve also in the club. But not host Wyclef Jean, winners will get this year. here seen modelling the trophy Instead of a DUI, he has a song, 'Fast Car', that tells of the dangers of driving under the influence.

Sport now. Tim, the AFL's offering big money scholarships to local teenagers? to 15- and 16-year-olds. Also, the Bulldogs grab a Dragons player.

Parramatta have just announced they've released halfback Tim Smith from his contract to deal with bipolar disorder. The Eels are now stepping up efforts to re-sign Brett Finch. Meantime, the Bulldogs have recruited their first player for next year.

Dragons winger Josh Morris has signed for three years. Mark Gasnier is set for an early return against the Roosters tomorrow, but Matt Cooper is out. hooker Robbie Farah won't be rushed back too soon. Benji Marshall's not Hooker Robbie Farah's on a mission after the latest tests on his injured back cleared him to resume full training. Now it's just a matter of training and blowing my lungs out because, as you've seen before, I was sucking in the big ones. Doctors want him to sit out the next two games, so is Farah playing games when it comes to his chances of taking on Ricky Stuart's Sharks on Sunday? and decide I want to play. Mate, I might wake up Sunday morning Robbie is not playing. Benji meantime can expect a torrid return after his six weeks out with a knee injury. Benji's obviously going to be a big plus for them. He's going to give them a lot of confidence and a lot of attack. But he's someone we'll certainly be targeting on the weekend. I'm sure Gal hasn't played for a few weeks, so I'm sure he'll get a few people run at him too just quietly. after eight years at the Tigers. He hasn't secured another job, but he is looking. Can't retire. The coach takes all the money in this club, not the CEO. And there was much excitement in Brisbane today. Darren Lockyer hitting full stride

ahead of his comeback from a knee injury tomorrow night. For winless opponents Souths, things just don't get any easier. No, it doesn't. It helps with Darren Lockyer being back as well. Lockyer's return just in time for Sunday's naming of the Test team. Look, I don't even think there's a decision to be made there.

I think he pulls through this game OK, I don't see any reason why he wouldn't be in that side. Adam Hawse, Ten News. Senior Waratahs have endorsed former World Cup-winning captain Nick Farr-Jones's assessment that rookie scrum half Luke Burgess deserves a Test call-up. Farr-Jones likes what he sees and so do Luke's team-mates. He's performed well, but he'll only get better as well, which is encouraging. Just personally, I reckon it's time just to give the young guys a go and Burgie's there. for Saturday's home game against the Sharks. Injury has ruled out a return for Rocky Elsom and Timana Tahu. The AFL's expansion plans have been on full display It's a super squad of young NSW players set to reap rich financial rewards. It's for good reason these teenagers are fighting hard to impress the talent scouts. The AFL are fully committed to developing kids from NSW into AFL footballers and are prepared to spend money to do it. I think one of the great things we've got in NSW is a very clear pathway for boys. The challenge for us now is to chase the best talent. The playing fields of St Ignatius at Riverview are usually the domain of rugby union players,

but this week Aussie Rules has reigned. Elite squads getting the best training possible in wet but high quality surrounds and getting the chance to earn good money through the scholarship program. And while money isn't everything in sport, it certainly does help, especially when you are getting $20,000 and you're only 15 years of age. Is it the money and attraction? Not really because the main reason I want to play the game

is because I love it. The main reason is for the love of the game. With a second Sydney team pencilled in for the 2012 season the race is on for the hearts and minds of our young athletes, but the AFL won't hear any talk of a war between football codes. It's a big marketplace. It's the biggest marketplace and we don't want to take over the world, but we'd like our slice of it. Neil Cordy, Ten News. A massive knock from Matthew Hayden lifted the Super Kings to a narrow victory over the Mumbai Indians in the Premier League this morning.

The race one of four Group Ones on a bumper feature card. It's become a familiar scene at morning trackwork. Persistent rain meaning a bog circuit for Saturday's feature race day. It's of little concern to the trainer of Dealer Principal who lines up in the $1.8 million derby. The Guineas winner's usually got a good record in the Derby.
