has died. The Canadian actress passed away at the age of 80 in her adopted home of Western Australia. Miss Moneypenny was the only woman James Bond could never have. She knew that if she allowed herself to fall in love with him he would break her heart. And he knew if he allowed himself to fall in love with Moneypenny he would never get his 00s. The Canadian-born actress played Mr Bond's secretary. And although her parts were small they always highlighted the sexual tension between the two. What can I bring you back from Holland? A diamond?

in the first Bond movie 'Dr No' in 1962 and continued to play Miss Moneypenny until 1985 when she starred with Roger Moore in 'A View to a Kill'. Thank-you. Goodbye, James.

Time for a look at finance now with James Boyce, and James, Virgin's new Trans-Pacific airline has been handed a big present before they've even taken to the skies. That's right, Georgie. The airline's plans to launch flights to North America have been boosted, with Australia and the US announcing they'll finalise a comprehensive open skies agreement by early next year. The talks expected to pave the way for Virgin's long-haul carrier V-Australia to fly the trans-Pacific route 10 times a week. Airlines are currently restricted to four flights a week on that route in their first year of operation.

Australian airlines say they're untroubled by a recent hike in the price of jet fuel. The industry's confident demand for fuel-hedging contracts and travel

will easily offset any price rise. Jet kerosene reached a record US$93.55 a barrel 10 days ago and could climb further to fall in line with the price of crude oil.

Martin Arnold there from Commsec. Taking a closer look at the figures this morning and as Martin pointed out, Now for a look at the national weather, Another battle for the Coral Sea is under way, this time to protect it from mining. The environmentally fragile area is zoned a potential source of oil and gas. While today's politicians say it should be preserved,

environmentalists want the area re-zoned to keep it safe, permanently. This is a potential oil field. The Federal Government has zoned sections of the Coral Sea as a fair game for petroleum exploration. The area has also been identified as an area of prospectivity for the oil and gas industry. Last year the Government completed a seismic survey in the deep blue off the Queensland coast. They were looking for oil and gas deposits. A small area they investigated was in the southern end of the Coral Sea. It's just an inappropriate place to put putting oil or gas mineral exploration out here.

But environmentalists fear potential problems, like oil spills, could devastate the marine habitat. What's at stake is too high to lose that and that is why we are against it. Another possible casualty, the reef tourism industry,

worth $6 billion to Australia's economy. To have a viable tourism industry it's one of those assets we should protect. Since 1975 federal legislation has prohibited mining on the Great Barrier Reef. Environmentalists now want similar laws to protect the Coral Sea. But politicians say they have no intention of mining the region. We think that the value of the reef is so high and so important, that it shouldn't be jeopardised by things like oil exploration. many a time before, The Government has indicated that we're not interested in mining the Great Barrier Reef or the Coral Sea. If that's the case Green groups say remove the mining zone and protect the area in case political opinions change. Meg Palmer, Ten News.

Just another working day at a dispensary, as they call them, in San Francisco. Where, with a note from a doctor, you can buy marijuana for anything you claim ails you - in just about any form. Cookies - two or three different kinds of cookies, pies... we have chocolate milk also. In many dispensaries up and down the state, there's a tasting corner where you can sample the wares.

I'm a hip hop artist first, 'cause that's what I've always been. And I'm a businessman second. But I'm not a drug dealer. But you're in the drug business. Correct? Correct.

The thing for Melbourne Storm now

is to look at their salary cap. For

the moment it is all about the celebrations. The Storm proved too much for Manly, running in seven tries in a 34-8 demolition of the Sea Eagles. The year's best team parading the proof of their league supremacy. Singing and surfing their way through the night,

the Storm celebrated with fans. This making up for lost time, 12 months after falling at the final hurdle. We've gone from the worst feeling you could ever experience to the best feeling. Eight years since their first title, the Storm were once again partying like it was 1999. They had every reason to. Clive Churchill medallist Greg Inglis extending the lead to 10.

That was the first of a double. The second will forever be etched in Grand Final folklore. It means a helluva lot. It's not just me out there, there's 16 other blokes. Manly's loss compounded by this sickening blow on Brett Stewart that ended his night. Hopefully he's alright.

I haven't had a chance to check him out.

The Sea Eagles' defence lost its structure. Holes just kept appearing. We probably saved one of our worst performances,

for one of the biggest stages in Rugby League. A late try by Clint Newton the icing on his amazing year. Unwanted by Newcastle mid-season, the Storm snapped him up. His famous Father Jack stood and saluted his premiership-winning son.

The trophy heading south for more show and tell. Even in AFL-mad Melbourne, there's more revelry ahead.
