Morning, Michael. is really very alarming. Michael, this article Are you surprised by the stats?

We should be alarmed by the

statistics. 40% of 12-year-old girls

think they are overweight, it's not statistics. 40% of 12-year-old girl

surprising boys have been caught up

in this questions for physical

perfection. A lot of kids are taking

far too far. The figures quoted

of the UK have the figures doubling far too far. The figures quoted out

of teenage boys taking steroids

between 2001 and

between 2001 and 2007. Are the

figures anywhere near that here? We

don't have the research but I

wouldn't be surprised.

Coincidentally this week I received

a referral for this particular

problem and I'm seeing the kid next

week. So it's certainly not

happening here but we don't have an

idea of the problems. My experience

is that we tend to parallel the

British trends so I wouldn't be

surprised. Michael, many of these

kids on steroids suffer from Adonis

syndrome. What is that? Adonis was a

figure in Greek mythology, half man,

half God. He basically was - had a

perfect body. In fact the Queen of

the gods fell in love with him. A

psychiatrist from Harvard university

called Harrison G Pope coined the

phrase Adonis syndrome for a number

of problems which included excessive

exercise, steroid abuse and eating

disorders. It's a recognised

problem, very serious and growing

and sloughly in men. Michael, if we

are talking about kids are talking about kids as young as

11, what role are the parents

playing in all of this. I am

assuming it takes more than 20 cents

pocket money to buy these? It's a

lack of supervision, to be honest.

We have a bunch of kids who don't

have that adult input. They go

have that adult input. They go down to the gym, there is a Black market,

a lucrative black market, I'm told

in these drugs and the kids

basically just get it. They are so

obsessed that they will, ond do,

steel to get the money to buy the

drugs. Michael, the side effects on

those young growing bodies must be

extreme? Catastrophe. We are talk

being about major impacts on the

liver. Significant problems in roid

rage or an aggression that comes with it. Stunted growth and

curiously, their testicles tend to

get smaller and they grow breasts.

It's not fun and it's not a game.

People can die of this stuff. How do

you, as a psych coal gist, treat

It should reach a top of 21 degrees in the Harbour city today. Right now, though, it's a cool 14.

That looked like a card board cut

out but it was real. It's the latest

in visual effects, this movie. It's been 43 years since the original 'Star Trek' series graced our TV sets. But the 'Starship Enterprise' is still going strong and this time it's back on the big screen. There's a new Captain Kirk, a new Mr Spock and, of course, a new villain. I caught up with stars Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine, along with director J.J. Abrams, ahead of the world premiere in Sydney last night. Space - the final frontier. We received a distress call...

I've been waiting for this day my whole life. It's the great space adventure that's stood the test of time. After more than 6 TV series and 10 films now 'Star Trek' is back with a new installment. And this time, they're going back to the beginning. What is your name? James Siberius Kirk. But what is it like to remake a classic?

I was excited about the idea of

doing a version of Trek because I

was never real afan. Doing one

appealing to me would be a fun

challenge. You know, the fans of

trek are an intimidating bunch. They

are vocal so I knew we would have

our challenges. I hope you know what

you are doing? So I do I. Part of

the challenge was taking the spirit

of what was created 40 years ago and

making it relevant. The context in

which this movie is made is

different from what was made in the

60s. We had to figure out what would

feel like it was of the same

inspired by the same ideas and yet

not literally taking the original

blue prints and rebuilding the sets.

We are travelling at warp speed. You

are the genius. I order you to

answer the question. I'm not

telling, acting captain. One of the keys to 'Star Trek's popularity is, of course, the characters. And this Captain Kirk and Mr Spock are keeping it in the family.

I knew Joe his brother years ago, it

was my sister's best friend. I knew

sack through friends.

sack through friends. We were in the was my sister's best friend. I knew

like days of our lives with a little

bit of

bit Of Bold and beautiful. I knew so

I 10 years ago so there was a real

sense of built-in comraderie. It's

helpful as we are going through

something so life changing. I have

no captain and no first officer to

replace him. Yes, we do. The

original Spock also makes an

appearance. Leonard and I have

become friends. I had great

become friends. I had great

opportunity to hang out and get to

know him. It's been one of the most

rewarding parts of this experience for me. And, of course, it just wouldn't be a 'Star Trek' adventure without some state-of-the-art effects!

Sequences are my favourite magic

trick. None matter unless you care

about the actors. It's about taking

the actors and putting them into in

said situations. You had to shave

your eyebrows off. They have grown

back. I bumped into your brother and

he said you were afraid they

wouldn't grow back. I am insuring

Dumped from the Aussie swim squad.

What is next for Nick D'Arcy. This

is The Morning Show live on Seven

right around Australia. One moment of boozy violence has ruined a young Aussie swimmer's hope of representing his country this year. Nick D'Arcy's alcohol-fuelled attack on fellow swimmer Simon Cowley in March last year left him with a broken jaw, eye socket, cheekbone and nose. The judge found the violence had been 'impulsive and unplanned' but it still left D'Arcy with a criminal record. It's cost him his place at the Beijing Olympics. And now, despite qualifying to go to the World Championships in July, Swimming Australia has sacked the Queensland butterflier from the team. So what does this mean for D'Arcy's future? Let's ask 'Sunrise' sports presenter Mark Beretta. Morning, Mark. What reason has Swimming Australia given for the move?

It's almost automatic. They have

gone to the rule book for the team

and said under rule 17. and said under rule 17.1, if you

have a criminal conviction, you

can't be are part of that team. They

made the determination. They

couriered a letter out to Nick

D'Arcy yesterday afternoon to say

you won't be part of the team. That

you won't be part of the team. That

is how it sits at the moment. It's

is how it sits at the moment. It's a fait accompli. Once you have a

conviction and a team is up for

selection, you are out of it. Does

this mean he won't swim for

Australia again? It could well. What

is still to happen, this event is

still unfolding. Nick D'Arcy has

been through the criminal case,

suspended from the Beijing team by the Australian Olympic Committee.

But now Swimming Australia is

dealing with it. At this point,

their inquiry is looking at what

penalties they might impose. They

can hit him with a ban from the

sport, fine him. At the moment they

have done the automatic thing and

say you can't be part of that team.

Swimming is a hard sport, you know.

They are rotten hours, it's a tough

slog. This might be enough for for

him to say I have had all I can take

and I'm going to walk away, thank

you. The question is where is the

motivation for him to keep getting

up at 4am if he is not swimming for

anything. It's a hard slog to keep

that going. Some think D'Arcy has

served his sentence by missing

served his sentence by missing out on the Beijing team. This does this

split the team further? I know you

ran a big phone poll on Sunrise this

morning and public opinion split

that he has perhaps done his time?

Quite passionate and split down the

middle, Kylie. Amongst the swimmers

there is the feeling - swimmers are

split as well. A lot are sympathetic

to Simon Cowley and a lot of them

recognise Nick D'Arcy has been

punished. To an athlete and swimmer,

missing an Olympic Games is a hard

punishment. There are so many missing an Olympic Games is a hard

complex issues. Is he remorseful

what has happened to Simon Cowley, complex issues. Is he remorseful for

has he served his time. Has swimming

recouped what has happened to Nick

D'Arcy. He has brought swimming into

disrepute. It's complicated. There D'Arcy. He has brought swimming into

is the media circus and everyone has

an opinion. How is Nick feeling?

Really devastated, as you would

expect. To find out yesterday he has

done all that work, thinks he has

gone through the roughes part of his

live, wins at the Australian World live, wins at the Australian

championships and find out yesterday

it's taken away. It's a heavy blow

for him. We will see what happens.

good friend Wayne Ormond. Good morning, So, what do you say to people who are looking for a career change?

Well, I'd say maybe it's time to consider becoming a Refund Home Loans franchisee. You can earn double, even triple what you're currently earning that sort of job satisfaction that only comes from being your own boss. But don't all franchisee opportunities do that? Well, some do but what makes Refund unique is that you're getting paid for helping people, guiding them to the right product, and making sure they get the most suitable deal possible for them. Right. That's why brokers exist - to bring competition to the market. And what about the Refund? Well, the Refund is our secret weapon. It's a win-win for you and your customers. Ah, hence the name Refund Home Loans! So, how does it work? OK, well say you're a franchisee,

you help secure a loan for Mr Brown with a major bank. The bank pays you a generous commission and you share this with Mr Brown by giving him a real cash refund. Ah, I see - that is a win-win situation. Not only do our customers love the cash refund, but they love the personal service in the comfort of their own home. And the hundreds of finance options available from our panel of over 35 leading lenders. And congratulations, Wayne -

I hear 'BRW ' Magazine

has listed Refund as the fastest-growing franchise system in Australia. Thank you, Karen. Not only is our franchise system been recognised by 'BRW', but with over 230 franchisees Australia-wide now, we're going from strength to strength. 'BRW' have also listed us as one of the fastest-growing companies in Australia. let's listen to what some franchisees, Darryl and Florence Kelly, had to say.

As franchisees, we're able to structure our business to suit our lifestyle.

We can plan our time around those special moments in our children's lives. And the Refund franchise is flexible and completely affordable. We can write business wherever the opportunity arises. Well, they certainly seem to be off to a flying start, and they didn't seem to have any experience in the finance industry. None whatsoever, and that's what really clinches it for a lot of new franchisees. They could be tradespeople, office workers or whatever. You don't need any experience to start your own Refund franchise. So, what do you need to start? Well really, all you need is to be a people person - someone with a great personality is going to do very well for themselves. As part of the whole package, we supply ongoing training, right up to Cert IV in mortgage lending, plus all the professional support they need in the field at head office and on top of that, great software systems to make it really easy. So all you really need is a positive attitude

and a love of working with people. Maybe you could do as well as Carlo. I've been in manufacturing for the last 18 years. The long hours, the stress - I needed a change. Since being my own boss with Refund, now I choose the hours, and I've never felt healthier. Well, I can see how, Wayne, he would find that very satisfying. And why wouldn't he, Karen? It's not just the money. Refund Home Loans lets you get more out of life, just like Peter. Before, I was working as a tradesman and I didn't really enjoy the job. Now, I own my own Refund franchise

and I'm making the money I've always dreamt of and I'm enjoying life that goes with it. He is one happy man, isn't he? Well, thank you so much for coming in today, Wayne. My pleasure, Karen. Great advice as always. Well, to find out more about become a Refund franchisee, call Refund Home Loans on 1300 733 863 or visit And again, for those of you that want to be able to your own boss and have that freedom, make sure you get in contact with the guys.

Kate Miller-Heidke burst onto the Australian music scene in 2007 with her Aria Award nominated album, 'Little Eve'. And the success has continued. Her latest album 'Curiouser' debuted at number eight on the charts. Her hit single 'Caught In the Crowd' tells the powerful story of watching a friend be bullied at school. And she's here to perform it live.

Please welcome Kate Miller-Heidke. # There was a guy at my school when I was in high school

# We'd ride side by side in the morning on our bicycles # Never even spoken or faced each other # But on the last hill we'd race each other # When we reached the racks we'd each go our own way

# I wasn't in his classes, I didn't know his name # When we finally got to speak he just stared at his feet # And mumbled a sentence that ended with 'James' # I was young and caught in the crowd # I didn't know then what I know now I was dumb and I was proud # And I'm sorry # And I'm sorry # If I could go back, do it again # I'd be someone you could call friend # Please please believe that I'm sorry # Well he was quite a big guy, kinda shy and quiet

# When the kids called him weird he didn't try to deny it

# Every lunchtime he'd spend walking by himself # Round the boundary of the grounds 'til he heard the bell # Well one day I found him, joined him on his walk # We were silent for a while until we started to talk # I told him my family were fighting in court # He said his stepdad and him always fought # We talked about music he was into punk # Told me all the bands that I liked were junk # I said I'd never heard the songs the Sex Pistols sang # I laughed back at him and then the bell rang # I was young and caught in the crowd # I didn't know then what I know now I was dumb and I was proud # And I'm sorry # If I could go back do it again # I'd be someone you could call friend # Please please believe that I'm sorry # It was after school in the afternoon

# The corridors were crowded as we came out of the rooms # Three guys I knew pushed him into the cement # Threw away his bag and said he had no friends # He yelled that he did and he looked around

# Tried getting up but they pushed him on down # That's when he saw me, called out my name

# And I turned my back and just walked away # I was young and caught in the crowd # I didn't know then what I know now # I was dumb and I was proud # And I'm sorry # If I could go back do it again # I'd be someone you could call friend # Please please believe # Please please believe that I'm sorry! #

. What a beautiful song. Thank you

very much A powerful message.

very much A powerful message. There is a personal story behind that, for

you? It's a composite of a few

different experiences. I

different experiences. I definitely went through a lot at high school.

I'm sure a lot of people - everyone

did. We are talking about bullying,

specifically. Is that where the

inspiration has come from? The song

tells a story of standing by and

basically watching your friend get

bullied but not being able to do

anything about it and then years

later, feeling regret. You were

young and caught in the crowd just

like the lyrics of the song say.

Along with the song you launched an

anti-bullying campaign with

anti-bullying campaign with the Education Department Yeah. To

encourage kids to speak up? It wasn't me, it was the 'Daily

Telegraph' and MySpace and kids help

line that were doing this campaign.

They thought that the song would

help sort of promote what they

help sort of promote what they were talking about. I was flattered to be

involved. That it has. Tell us about

that competition, though. A whole

bunch of school kids from different

schools around Australia have made

videos, their own video clips of the

song. You have a winner to announce?

We are very close. There is only one

thing more exciting than having a

winner, that's almost having a

winner. You are very big at the

moment. You are doing Jerry

Springer, the opera. Baby Jane.

Explain the character to us?

Basically I play the character of a

woman who likes to dress as a

toddler, wear a nappy, soil her

pants and get her bum spafrnged.

They type Cas me, pretty much. It's

interesting. We saw David Wenn ham

there. A great cast. Everyone is

amazing. The show is totally filthy,

totally entertaining and intelligent

and complex. Sounds... Laz, you are

there. Thank you very much. It was

lovely. Great whistling. We haven't

had whistling like that before. Kate's album 'Curiouser' is in store's now.

We'll have all her tour dates on our website. A little later on this morning - never lose the keys again. Australia's memory champion is teaching us how to improve our memory skills. But up next - here's Glenn with a fresh way to keep things tidy.

Don't miss out on. Or go to the

Does that mean you will remember my

name? Sure, Barry. But after the break - is Barack Obama the world's new comic strip hero? And should Kevin Rudd be immortalised in the same way? Find out next. Well Welcome back. On the way this hour - how to think like an elephant. We're getting the expert tips for improving your memory. Plus, Lindsay Lohan's split from Samantha Ronson gets nasty. Now even Lindsay's dad is weighing in. And the best-ever TV bloopers.

More likely to give her a curve job

than a blow job - or a block party. The mishaps of live TV coming up. But first, making headlines this morning - a new survey shows parents are setting a bad example when it comes to talking on the phone while driving. 15% of parents say they've chatted on a mobile with the kids in the car. Only half of those said they were worried about getting fined. So should the penalties be tougher? It's over to our Wednesday Jury,

commentator Rebecca Le Tourneau and host of the ABC 702 breakfast show, Adam Spencer. Good morning. Bec, 15% of parents say they've talked on a mobile with kids in the car. Do you think that figure is accurate?

I'm surprised because I'm surprised

that anybody with a little person

under the age of 10 in the back of

the car can do anything other than

drive like a nanna. My daughter is

an absolute control freak. She is a

vir go and will not let me do

anything. She "

anything. She "Stop the car mummy" anything. She "Stop the car mummy".

If I touched the phone she would

leap from the car straight on to the

freeway. She is such a control freak

and try and drive the car for me and

she is only nine. I'm as

she is only nine. I'm astounded the

number is that high. I find kids

police parents. They have had so

much education on road rules. Adam, only half the parents said they were worried about getting fined for using a mobile while driving.

Is a fine the issue? You Sneed Is a fine the issue? You Sneed kids

in the car, 4-year-old kids. I'm

teaching my wife Melanie to drive,

she is on her Ls, in her early 30s.

This guy does something dangerous.

Mel let's out the F word. Next set

of lights, Ellie let's out the F

word because she thinks that's what

you have to do. Mel is terrified for

doing anything wrong for fear Ellie

drops the F bomb. I will have her in

the back seat when Mel sits the

test. She will pass it easy. Moving on and the recession is about to hit TV screens in the US. A recession-themed reality show is set to air on Fox Television. Contestants can vote on who gets fired, who gets a raise and who gets demoted. Adam, is this bad taste considering the global financial crisis?

This probably is bad taste given the global financial crisis, et cetera.

I would suggest if you are looking

for good taste, the makers of

reality TV are not the place to

start laobing. This is a group of

people who get a group of morbidly

overweight contestants xput them on

a treadmill until they have a heart

attack. Not normally where I set my

moral compass. Is this a program you

would put into your diary?

Contestants can vote on fellow

workers? Isn't that we live every

day. People trying to get people to

sack us, in tough times. I'm glad I

don't work with you. I've worked in

offices where it gets terrible. It

will be nice to have a reality

television show where you get well

paid, work 40 hours a week and have quality time. I quality time. I would watch that.

That is called fantasy island. You wouldn't watch that. And finally, Barack Obama has been immortalised as a comic book superhero. The comic book is called 'The Righteous Retribution of Barack the Barbarian: 'Quest for the Treasure of Stimuli'. A beefed-up Barack takes on a scantily-clad Sarah Palin. Bec, what do you think of Barack the Barbarian?

Leave that shot for a second. Quest

for a stimuli. It sounds like a porn

film. It sounds like I'm

film. It sounds like I'm channel

Sarah Palin. I should have been

wearing that outfit. There you are.

What about Julia Gillard as Wonder

Woman in the red knickers and breast

plate going and bludge Opening a few

bankers in her invisible plane. bankers in her invisible plane. That

could be interesting. You had a good

night's sleep last night. Frngs I

think the bobby pins are in a bit tight. Adam, can you see Kevid Rudd as a comic book superhero?

It does work for me, Kevin Rudd. "

It does work for me, Kevin Rudd. "He

I believe I'm a pretty good driver.

I have a great driving record and a

low risk driver. The great news is,

you may be able to save hundreds of

dollars a year by making the switch

dollars a year by making the switch to Budget Direct. Responsible

drivers like yourself are able to

save because they are not

subsidizing or shelling out for the

bad, high risk drivers. The ones

causing all of the dings and all of

the problems. Why have so much people switched that their

insurance? Hundreds of thousands of

Australians have made the switch

because of the way they do business.

It's saving huge amounts of money

and providing them with the

confidence of knowing they are

confidence of knowing they are getting quality insurance with a

multi-award winning insurer. They

have won a stack of awards. I'm sure

viewers would love to

viewers would love to know how much

they are tucking here. Let's look at

these savings. The top one, $

That's a lot of petrol Or shoes.

incredible savings. Mr Could you

Juan, $

Juan, $679. That's almost $

Juan, $679. That's almost $700 a

year. I wouldn't say no to $

year. I wouldn't say no to $700. I

believe your mates are so confident

we can save, they offer a price beat

guarantee? They sure do. 23 within

21 days of taking out a policy you

find a cheaper, comparable quote,

you are over 25 and met the

guarantee terms, they won't just

match the other deal, they will beat

it - guaranteed. That's great. It's

not just about saving the money.

With Budget Direct you will get

quality cover. Award winning

insurance. They have won a whole

stack of awords, money magazine and

banking and finance magazine awards.

They are standing up and taking notice. You will get:

There are no forms to fill in ever.

It's all done over the phone. It

gets better and better. I'm signed

up, I have my policy and so have

hundreds of thousands of others.

Let's look at what the customers

have to say. I would

have to say. I would recommend Budget Direct to anybody, especially

if someone is looking to save money

for their family. It's a wonderful

service and for the financial side

of it, very impressive. I switched

over to Budget Direct and saved

hundreds of dollars. It was great.

Now I can go away for the weekend. I

saved hundreds of dollars

that's paid my rego for the year. So

it's worth it. Some very happy

customers there. There are lots of

Thanks Fai for joining us. Back to

you, guys. Here's an unususl story about a cat stuck up a tree and not even the fire brigade can help. The cat is stuck, high up in a tree in Maryland in the US. It's been there since Saturday.

Nearby residents think the cat scampered up the tree because it was frightened by a pair of German shepherds. The fire department was called to help with the rescue but power lines were in the way. Authorities are now working on another rescue plan.

Let's hope it's a success!

It looks comfy. It will come down in

its own good time. How can it look

comfy with those prickly things

going on there. Send in the Kevin

ate or and his cape. Look at that

ladder. What is that going to do? If

you put kitty cat on the top of that

ladder. Been there since Saturday,

poor little thing. Off you go. We

will update you, keep you up on to

date on that one. It's important you know. Still to come - Jessica Simpson dropped by her record label. So will her career be able to make yet another comeback or is this it for the bombshell?

SONG: # Just be happy # Na, na, na, na, na! # Do you always come home from the shops forgetting the one thing you really needed to buy?

Sometimes I forget to come home from

the shops. Or are you always jotting things down so you don't forget them? Well we've got just the trick - or should I say tricks - for you. Memory Champion Simon Orton is in to share his tips for remembering a group of peoples names, the grocery list and a series of numbers. Good morning, Simon. People can be visual, auditory, tactile or logical learners. Which method do you personally prefer?

And you think is best? I tend to use

visual methods for memorising. Most

people at the memory competitions do

the same although it can help to

throw in other senses, touch as

well. A little bit of sound, a

little bit of touch. It all helps.

The more vivid you can make the

imagination. What sort of

imagination. What sort of methods would you use? Let's run through a

couple of things that you would

couple of things that you would remember lists for a competition, for instance?

remember lists for a competition,

for instance? We have got points

there. The mess important thing is

to focus, pay attention to what you

are trying to memorise. What we do

are trying to memorise. What we do

is try to create mental pictures for

the items that we need to memorise.

the items that we need to memorise.

If there are abstract items, we need

to create a more concrete mental

picture we can use. Relate them to

picture we can use. Relate them to

what we already know. In the case of

memory competitions, we tend to use

a journey, locations along a journey

to place the items that we are

memorising. That gives the order to

those items. Later we can review

those items. Later we can review that journey and memorise the items

in order. Bump that journey and memorise the items in order. Bump

that journey and memorise the items in order. Bump If we are sitting at

home and want to remember people's

names, what do we do? The most

important thing is to really pay

attention at the time you hear the

name. It's easy to be distracted,

thinking about something else. If

you don't absorb the name initially,

you have little chance of recalling

it correctly later. There are two

techniques I use. If you know

someone else with the same name,

think of an association between the

person you are meeting and the person you are meeting and the

person you know. That's a good one.

The other is sometimes you can make

a mental picture that represents a

name or reminds you of the name. So

that can be a good technique as

well. We have got crew members here.

How would you remember these. We

have Marenko, Matt, Mick, Tom and

David. OK. They are forgetable guys,

it's important. How do you remember?

Do you need me to tell you again.

Marenko Matt, Mick, Tom, Dave. I can

see Dave. There he is in the striped

top. Marenko, I would come up with

an image that would remind me of

that and maybe a merino sheep. Ju
