Homicide Squad detectives are investigating the discovery of a woman's body after a fire in bushland on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. The woman in her 20s was found dead after emergency services responded to a blaze in Tee Trees at Frankston around 7:00 last night. Police will continue processing the scene. A post-mortem examination will be carried out to determine the cause of death. A breakthrough in the fight against bird flu - scientists saying they may have developed a vaccine to prevent a pandemic. Bird flu may have killed less than 200 people,

but scientists fear the death toll will eventually number in the millions. Understandably, there's been a global push to find a vaccine before a pandemic strikes. Now Adelaide researchers are confident they have it. Doses that have been used in the past have given a limited amount of immunity. We think higher doses, which is what we're giving in this study, will give a better immunity. As part of the final approval process, the drug is being tested on the elderly. Doctors hope just two injections

will allow the body to reject the H5N1 strain of the virus. Blood tests will determine if the drug is fully effective. The side effects from this vaccine should not be any different from the side effects from the normal flu vaccine. But we don't really know, so we're on the lookout for anything. 71-year-old Barry Nitschke is a volunteer. He got involved in the study after seeing news reports on the spread of the deadly disease. It sounds like it's a pretty bad sort of disease, doesn't it? The results of the study are expected to be released early next year. If the drug proves a success, it could be available to consumers as early as March. Gabrielle Boyle, Ten News.

The 41-year-old former attorney-general of the Solomons is wanted by Australian authorities over allegations he had sex with an underage girl. Moti has spent the past week hiding out in Port Moresby trying to evade extradition proceedings. He's reportedly been detained by Solomons police while they clarify his immigration status. Officials in Rome have unveiled an ancient burial ground six years after it was discovered lying beneath the Vatican. The ancient necropolis contains 40 burial structures including tombs and sarcophagi dating back more than 2,000 years. The site was discovered back in 2000 when workers at the Vatican began construction on a new underground garage to house tourist coaches. Ryan Briscoe to drive an Indy car on the Gold Coast. That's ahead when Ten's Morning News continues. Also, Jason Akermanis pledges to keep his mouth shut at his new AFL club.

They include one of the nation's richest young men, who is passing on managerial skills at the same time. Giving back with coffee and care. Phillip di Bella is one of Australia's young mega-rich

helping the disadvantaged in a Mission Australia cafe. He has a passion for helping people move beyond the problems they might be having today. The coffee king trains the unemployed and refugees amongst the staff in Cafe One. Those who have mingle with those who have not in the upmarket, inexpensive cafe that's more than a soup kitchen. And no-one asks who's who. When you're down on you're luck and you're facing a hard time

it's nice to have some people who aren't in that situation around you to give you the hope that you can move beyond that. Phillip Di Bella is on BRW's young rich list. He's always donated money and now something more precious. Donating money, when you're successful donating money is not a big thing so now we moved into donating time which is worth a lot more than money to yourself. He calls it sharing good fortune and many are quietly doing it. Office workers are apparently finding it motivating, empowering, as they say, to help out. Some of the services dished out with the food if needed. Legal advice, for example, are provided by major Australian firms in a project being watched closely by Mission Australia interstate. Westpac, PriceWaterhouse Coopers, Boeing, for example, all supply volunteers for the cafe and they come down here and work and spend the day here and get involved

To, um, be brought into this environment and learn community skills and be involved in social work was a great opening for me. Compassion with the coffee - no longer something left to others. Mark Suleau, Ten News. In finance news - the Australian share market is tradely strongly this morning. Existing share owners look like being the big winners in the Telstra T3 float. Ten reporter Jacqueline Maddock joins us now from Canberra. Jacqueline, after the battering they received the last time Telstra shareholders need a break. The Government has gone to great lengths to make the offer an attractive buy for mum and dad investors. Some commentators are labelling the offer dangerously attractive.

There's plenty of incentives in the prospectus for those loyal shareholders burned by T2. Dividends, at least in 2007, are at 14%, certainly a greater return than you'd receive from a bank savings account. So the total discount to retail investors is about 7% a greater incentive than either T1 or T2. There are a few catches investors need to be aware of, aren't there? Most importantly Tracey, as yet there is no fixed sale price. We know the first installment will be $2 but the second installment price won't be set until Telstra has spruiked the deal to institutional investors, fund managers and other companies. Jacqueline, thank you. Ten reporter Jacqueline Maddock in Canberr. Internet giant Google has bought out the video-sharing site YouTube Controversial Brisbane star Jason Akermanis says he'll button his lip when he makes the move to the Western Bulldogs. He's already planning his farewell party after the Lions and the Bulldogs struck the first deal of the AFL's trade week. Jason Akermanis moved quickly to quash fears he'll be trouble at his new home contacting Scott West, who'd expressed public doubts. I rang Scott and had a chat about it. It's all good, you know. As I do, just cleared the air, make sure everything's in context, because sometimes you people in the media, you've got to get the full story. It's not all always in there. Under the deal Brisbane will receive a second-round pick, but not necessarily the Bulldogs' second round. It seems light on for the Lions, but the Dogs will pay all of his wage which should enable Brisbane to retain Daniel Bradshaw, who's been targeted by Geelong. And the 29-year-old Brownlow medallist says he'll be choosing his words more carefully. It's going to be a different kettle of fish. I think you'll find we'll be doing things a little differently, perhaps. Collingwood and Chris Tarrant are closer to parting company. It's fair to say we've had discussions with his manager. He doesn't desperately want to move but if the right deal comes along, we'll all have a look at it and that's where we sit. We think he can help us. So our interest will be as strong as it needs to be to be able to try and secure his services. Hawthorn has Sydney and St Kilda fighting over Peter Everitt, the Swans unhappy at the Hawks' hardline approach. They're telling us that they've got an early second-round pick,

so I guess that puts us out of it, so we'll have to get him in the pre-season draft. And Carlton is coming to terms with the prospect of losing key defender Brett Thornton, who has walked out of the club and wants to go to Hawthorn. Rob Waters, Ten News. Australian rugby league coach Ricky Stuart will today announce his team for Saturday's Tri-Nations opener against New Zealand. The Kangaroos are desperate to regain their world number one status. The Kangaroos arrived in New Zealand, revenge firmly on their minds. Very important - it was very embarrassing last year. It wasn't a good feeling. They started last year's Tri-Nations series with a loss to the Kiwis in Sydney and finished it with another loss - a 24-0 thumping in England. The defeat last year has lifted the spirits of the experienced players because I know they probably have in the back of their minds the feeling, or the lack of feeling, they had after they lost the series last year. Some tough calls ahead for Stuart at the selection table, captain Darren Lockyer to be consulted on who'll play beside him at halfback - Johnathan Thurston or Ben Hornby. Ricky obviously hasn't made his decision yet, but we've both been interchanging and whoever gets the job will do a good job. The Kiwis with an obvious starter at No. 7,

the crafty veteran Stacey Jones. One thing the Kiwis probably lacked last Test, on Anzac Day, they lacked a lot of direction.

Stacey gives them that. He's a huge bonus for the New Zealand team. Leanne West, Ten News.

Socceroo captain Lucas Neill is wary of complacency in tomorrow night's Asian Cup qualifier against Bahrain. The national team was mobbed by adoring fans in Sydney. Coming off a draw against Paraguay in last weekend's friendly, Neill wants the Socceroos to keep their minds on the job. It's going to be a potential banana skin so if we don't approach it in a professional manner, we could come unstuck so it's important, because we're playing for our country that we give our all. We'd be looking for the same kind of intensity as the other night. The Aussies train this afternoon. There will be two Aussie drivers competing at this month's Gold Coast Indy race, with Ryan Briscoe signing a deal to race at Surfers Paradise. Briscoe joins countryman Will Power on the grid in less than two weeks. Motorsport's Mr Versatility is excited about his latest mission. The Gold Coast Indy will be Ryan Briscoe's 5th different racing category this year. It's awesome. Fantastic news. I've never raced a champ car or at Surfers. I'm really looking forward to it. Briscoe has signed a deal with a team and replacing an injured driver. A strong performance in Australia and Mexico could land him a full-time seat in the champ car series next year. Briscoe isn't looking too far ahead. He knows the unpredictable future in motor sports.
