Okay, mate, catch you just after 7 o'clock and talk about the share market and what is going on, see you then. Time for sport now. Thank you, Kochie. The AFL has cleared Greater Western Sydney of any wrongdoing over their controversial recruitment of Adelaide youngster Phil Davis. Collingwood president Eddie McGuire accused the Giants of cheating by poaching Davis mid-season. But Eddie's anger has been dismissed as self-interest as the Magpies fight to re-sign superstar Dale Thomas. I think Eddie's very protective at the moment. It's gonna happen to most clubs where you're going to lose a player and we've just got to deal with it. Port Adelaide veteran Chad Cornes has ruled out switching to the Giants by confirming he'll retire at season's end. Test and Origin star Sam Thaiday says he's the best man to replace retiring legend Darren Lockyer as skipper of the Broncos. Thaiday also wants to lead the NRL's Indigenous team when Preston Campbell calls it quits. Meantime, Matt Bowen is set to play out his career in North Queensland after signing a 2-year contract extension. The Cowboys have also signed Roosters centre Kane Linnet to replace the departing Willie Tonga. The Melbourne Victory has issued an ultimatum to Socceroos star Harry Kewell as the 33-year-old continues to delay a decision on his footballing future. Victory officials are tired of the drawn-out negotiations and plan to withdraw their lucrative offer if it's not accepted today. The Victory are keen to start planning for the upcoming A-League season which begins in October.

And why would someone target her family? We're live to the scene. VOICEOVER: Introducing Listerine Zero. We removed the alcohol and made it less intense. (TCHAIKOVSKY'S '1812 OVERTURE' PLAYS) It still kills germs and prevents cavities, but it's never felt so good. New Listerine Zero. Deep clean. Less intense after spending 10 hours with a suspected bomb strapped to her. Police were called to a Mosman home about 2:30 yesterday afternoon. Bomb squad officers moved in to remove the device They sought assistance from federal authorities and the British military before eventually releasing Madeleine shortly after midnight. She's already provided a lot of information to the officers who were with her throughout her ordeal. But police will continue their efforts today to piece together exactly what happened. Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew joins us from Mosman. Good morning. What's the latest on the investigation? What do we know about Madeleine and her family? We know Madeleine was 18 years old, a student at Winona, an exclusive private school near her home in mausmous, an exclusive suburb on the harbour here in Sydney. Her father is Bill Pulver, making millions with software. We fwhd software. We fwhdstand the police investigation is focusing on people who may have known the family, friends of the family or have been inside the home in Mosman. They have been reunited. The Pulvers had to spend the entire ten-hour ordeal outside, locked out while Madeleine was being attended to by forensics, senior detectives. Imagine as a parent what that must have been like. They led Madeleine out at 20 past midnight when she was released and the bomb' like device was removed from her neck. She was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital and treated for shock. We understand they are staying with family and friends, they haven't come back to the house because it is a crime scene. Do you xo how they are doing? Obviously, just emotional wrecks after this sort of ordeal, but how are they coping? Well, as well as can be expected. We understand Madeleine kept her emotions in check and was a real help to police throughout the 10-hour ordeal and the same as the family outside, giving as much information as they possibly could. Here is what police had to say last night. The family have endured, probably something no-one needs to endure. And as a parent, certainly, something I would never want to contemplate but they have held up remarkably well. They are obviously immensely... The family still don't know. Sorry? They still don't know why they were targeted. We understand they have three more sons but there was no-one else, we understand, home yesterday. Hopefully, the poor young girl, 18 going through that. I am sure they are getting all the support they can. Thank you, we will talk to ayou later: Our coverage of this story continues throughout the morning. In our next half-hour, we'll get the inside story on the operation to remove the device. Also ahead - what the share market meltdown means for investors. But next, how the papers are covering the bomb terror in Sydney. Bad hair day hats. A compliment from a stranger. Cherry gloss. Little things can make a big difference to your confidence, like the wings on Carefree Flexia. They catch fluid before it has a chance to get past. It's just better protection than a regular tampon. So why wouldn't you? Little wings give you big confidence. to Beacon Lighting's Biggest Lamp Sale. Save 50% of your second lamp only at Beacon. Sale on now. Front-page news across the country is the bomb ordeal in Sydney. The 'Herald Sun's headline says "Strapped to a Bomb". Brisbane's 'Courier-Mail' says "Girl's Bomb Terror" and calls it a supplicated and calls it a sophisticated extortion attempt. And the 'Daily Telegraph' also calls it an extortion bid on a Sydney millionaire and goes with the headline "Locked Into a Collar Bomb". Terrifying for that young woman. It is just so bazaar, something like something that is made up. You can't believe it has happened. The most weird thing. The guy comes in, she is studying for her HSC, thousands of kids are doing it around the country. Puts this thing on her, like out of 'Die Hard' movie and says, " this thing on her, like out of a 'Die Hard' movie and says, "You can call the police but if you tell them too much I can hear what you are saying and am going to detonate it." How do you recover from that? An ordeal to go through, you would never for the rest of your life. For her to keep as calm as she obviously did, for ten hours, without seeing the parents. They are out in the street, waiting to hear it is okay. Very, very frightening. Of course, a ten-hour ordeal in the harbside suburb harbside suburb of Mosman has played out in the social media. From Twitter. We saw pictures of her friends congregating outside of the house to lend their support. The other big story this morning is our stock market. Investors will watch nervously when it opens this morning. A whopping $26 billion was wiped off Australian shares yesterday. That dragged our market to its lowest point in almost a year. So, Kochie, are there more falls to come? And is it a good time to be buying? Look, we are going to talk to Craig James a bit later. He reckons the fall in our share market is completely over done. Our share market has fallen more than the American share market and our economy is so strong, our companies are making a lot of money. Look, consumers have gone into the burnger. Amay burnger. Americans are nervous about what is going to happen to their country. Europeans are nervous about what is happening over there. Prime Minister Berlusconi in Italy had to come out and defend Italy overnight saying, " saying, "Hey, we are in pretty solid shape." So you have got a nervousness around the world. Remember, markets are all based on psychology. They are driven by people, not some inanimate object. A whole bunch of people making decisions. If they are scared they go with the herd and that is what is happening at the moment. Also, it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere. So what? You shed things when So what? You shed things when you are hot? No turn overis very low on the markets so they are very fragile and volatile because most share brokers are down at the beach for their holiday. More in the show later. Later - the cars that drive themselves and these ones will be on the road in just three years. But next, news, sport and weather together.

Go better. to remove a suspected collar bomb from a Sydney schoolgirl. But first it's over to Nat for the news. The Sydney teenager at the centre of a bomb drama is recovering with her parents after police managed to finally remove a suspected explosive device attached to her body. For the latest I'm joined by Adam Walters who is outside the family home in Mosman. Good morning, Adam. Any word on how the teenager, Madeline, is? The good news is she has been discharged from Royal North Shore Hospital after under going routine observation and treatment for the incredible shock and trauma she suffered during a ten-hour ordeal that can only be describe as horrific and evil on so many levels. Contrasting that the elation and happiness at reuniting with her parents Belinda and Bill Pulver, he is extremely wealthy, in partnership with computer companies. Police are examining extortion as a motive for this terrible incident but say she is fine but it will take a long time to get over it. The senior police New South Wales were shocked by it. to get over it. The senior police in They treated it a counter terrorism organisation and the police commissioner said it was outside of their expertise and they consulted British police to help resolve the situation. This is an unusual incident for New South Wales and, indeed, Australia. I'm not aware of anything like this happening in the country before and I think that is what makes this so unusual. Incredible story, Adam Walters updating us in Sydney, thank you, we will check back in with you throughout the morning. An air-and-sea search has resumed for a fisherman missing off Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. Yang Wang hasn't been seen since Tuesday afternoon when a ranger saw him rock fishing at the Flinders Blowhole. His wife raised the alarm when he didn't return home that night, with police finding his gear still on the rocks and his car parked nearby. The 37-year-old was wearing a life jacket but can't swim. The area is known for its dangerous surf and rugged cliffs. Millions of Egyptians around the world have witnessed their former president face court on mass murder and corruption charges. Hosni Mubarak was wheeled in on a stretcher as he faced questions from behind a steel cage. The 83-year-old denied all the allegations against him. He's accused of ordering the killing of protesters during the uprising which ousted him from power. His two sons and former government ministers are also on trial. He truly was man's best friend but questions are being raised as to the truth behind the famous story of the dog Greyfriars Bobby. An academic believes the story of the faithful canine who remained by his owner's grave in Edinburgh from 1858 to 1872 was a clever publicity stunt. Afraid It's claimed the real Bobby died and was replaced by a younger dog to keep visitors coming to the gravesite. Who knew? There were PR companies around in such force in 1858? You are now going to tell me Tinkerbell is not real. No, don't go there. I didn't say Thank goodness. I didn't say that. Just Gray frpgiar's Boby. Never heard of him. Anyone? Anyone on the crew?

Broncos captain Darren Lockyer has rejected an offer to make next year's Indigenous All Stars game his rugby league swansong. Lockyer will hang up the boots after leading the Kangaroos in the season-ending Four Nations tournament. But he certainly won't be lost to the game. He's worn the Kangaroos' jersey with great pride over a long period. That's certainly one area where we've talked to him about an ongoing role helping us promote international football. Lockyer will play his record-equalling 349th NRL match against the Warriors on Saturday night. Carlton coach Brett Ratten is preparing for a resurgent Melbourne outfit at the MCG on Saturday. The Demons are looking to hit back hard under caretaker coach Todd Viney but Ratten is adamant his side won't be ambushed.

That's the view through the Jetstar skycam. Currently 9 degrees. Now more on the terrirfying ordeal of Sydney schoolgirl Madeleine Pulver. As we've reported, bomb squad officers took about 10 hours to remove a suspect device which had been strapped to her. In a moment we'll speak with our security expert. But first, let's have a listen to what Assistant Commissioner Mark Murdoch had to say earlier this morning. A very elaborate, very sophisticated device, we believe. We still do not know if that device is explosive. The manner in which it was located in proximity to the young lady was such that it has taken us the better part of 10 hours to secure her release. Certainly, the family are at a loss to explain this and again you'd hardly think someone would go to this much trouble if there wasn't a motive behind it. What that motive is, as I've indicated, we are still not aware. She certainly had some interaction with whom we believe has been responsible for this incident this evening. That level of interaction is, again, a matter for our detectives to investigate. This is an unusual incident for New South Wales and, indeed, Australia. I'm not aware of anything like this happening in the country before. I think that's what's made it so unusual. As I've said before, I've been doing this a long time. It's the first time I've come across anything like this. It's certainly right up there as being something unusual and very, very difficult to deal with. Joining us now is security expert Tony Loughran. Good morning. We heard the police there saying they've not dealt with anything like this in Australia before but how common is it overseas for criminals to strap devices to victims? It is not massively common to be honest with you, Mel but it had a couple of situations in Colombia, where this seems to have come from where farmers have had things strapped to them and sent on bombing missions. In missions. In the '80s the IRA, did things like proxy bombs and took devices and put thel on and say to the families go and conduct a bombing attack. It is common in guerilla graop groups overseas. Here we are talking suburban Sydney, exclusive suburbs when makes so startling. The thing is the police say they were concerned the girl had a microphone attached to her and the person who put the bomb on her could be listening to anything she said. Would it have been likely? The police would have had to take it into account. Now days the technical advancements have moved on a lick and you can get remote cameras and microphones. You can switch things on and off from a great distance and surveillance teams use them all the time. Whether this guy had it, who knows Ten hours, this poor girl, her family outside. That -s family outside. That family outside. That is such a long time. How would they have managed? What would have been happening. First things first, I would like to say what an amazing job the security forces did. She did a fantastic job to panic and not react to pull something or twist something but by lucounts she remained calm and gave information back to the police. So that is just amazing. It is testimony to the negotiation skills going on there as well and keeping the family in the loop in every step. How do they do that? What would have been happening. What do you say to a girl in situation like this other than, " than, "Stay calm, we are trying to do everything we can." It do everything we can." It wouldn't cut it? A massive amount of training that goes into the people to keep stress levels low and something is being done and the person is going to survive. Remarkable how the negotiation happening. In this case, the information that was give back and fordwards to the mreels and the girl. Thank God she is safe, we are learning more as the minutes tick by. We will talk to you after 7 too. A Brisbane cabbie is on a personal mission to improve safety on the city's streets. Known to her passengers as Waterlily, she goes out of her way to find those on a good night out and get them home safely. For most cabbies picking up drunk passengers is not something they'd prefer. But Waterlily is not your average taxidriver. Hey, hey, hey! You never take me home. You love her. Every Friday and Saturday night she seeks out revellers who've had too much to drink. Women in particular. You alright, sweetie? Her mission? To get them home safely. Can I get in? I want to get in. Let me in - let me in. Often, passengers leave without so much as a thank you. Others are more appreciative. That's great. You don't get many female drivers. It makes the roads so much safer for us to get home. Perhaps that's why parents send her thank-you letters. Take care. Stay safe. We will. See you later girls. Goodnight. Waterlily joins me now live from Brisbane. Good morning to you. Why do you go out of your way to pick up drunk passengers? Well, somebody has to do the job. Good morning to you Kochie and mel. It is a job that I enjoy. I get great satisfaction in knowing that another person has made it home safely. And the other thing too, is that, without the cab drivers out there, then where will people be if they don't have someone that is going to get them home safely? Look, you are dead right. But a lot of cab drivers fear drunks because of security issues and often they mess up the cab. You know is that a bit of a myth? Have you found that am Actually, you know, if you allow fear to stop you from doing what it is you want to do then you are not going to be successful and achieve what you want to fear, fear is an acronm for faults education appearing real. So attack it, that is inbest thing I can suggest mism I hope your kindness is reciprocate by those you pick up My kindness does get reciprocated by people. I have received wonderful thank yous from people, verbal thank yous, people who recognise me that haven't seen me for maybe four years. They just wow! We haven't seen you, I need your number from you again, please. What are the other cabbies think about your mission Do they say good on you? We want to join you or do join you or do they think WaterLily you got rocks in your head People always think you have got rocks in your head if you try to do a good Samaritan deed. I am only one of many WaterLilies in the pond. There are many drivers outside there. It may be a risky job but goes with the job to actually get an end result. there. It may be a risky job but it

Yep. Look, mothers have sent you

thank you letters. I know you are much appreciated. For us this morning you restore our faith in human nature, you are inspiring, good on you. Thank you, Kochie just remember where am not the only driver out there that does the same job. There are many others, okay? Exactly right. Cabbies get a bad wrap sometimes but there are lots of

Officers were called to a home in the harbourside suburb of Mosman about 2:30 yesterday afternoon. Inside was 18-year-old Madeleine Pulver. Bomb squad officers moved in to remove the device which senior police have described as elaborate. They sought assistance from federal authorities before eventually releasing Madeleine shortly after midnight. Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew joins us now from Mosman. Good morning again. What's the latest on the investigation? I understand police are still looking for an intruder? They certainly are. The investigation is focusing on someone who may have known the family, someone who has been to the house before hand but they just confirm said there were no explosives in the device release said from Madeleine's neck, a boxlike device, very sophisticated and they make no apologies for waiting to confirm it. It took ten hours to remove the device and they had to take it to be x-rayed to determine if it was device and they had to take it away a danger or not but they weren't taking chances. We hear yesterday afternoon, Madeleine taking chances. We hear that called her father after the person came into the house at 2. came into the house at 2.30. It launched the police operation. It was a general duties officer who responded to the call and then it escalated, forensics, the help of Australian federal police and calling in the expertise of British experts as well. Certainly an elaborate operation. They say the device was extremely sophisticated. Now the focus is: who did this? They say even they don't know say even they don't know what the motive is? Of course they had to deal with it, believing it was real, that it was the device they thought it have been. Throughout it, Madeleine was there with this thing strapped the device they thought it could

to her, her family is outside believing the worst. Do we know how they are this morning? We know you said earlier she went to hospital. Do we know how they are going now? She was removed from the house at 12. She was removed from the house at 12.30 last night and taken North Shore Hospital and released at 12.30 last night and taken to Royal 2. North Shore Hospital and released at 2.30 this morning treated for shock. They haven't returned to the house in Mosman because it is treated a as a crime scene. It is cordoned off and only residents are allowed in and out. and out. We understand she is doing okay, police say she will be okay but extremely shaken. What about locals? Frightening to live in the street knowing it is happening next door or across the sense? There is a real sense of this dozen happen in Mosman. For people who don't know Sydney, it is an exclusive harbourside suburb. Locals are going about business as usual. But the street where the Pulver family live with home to Gai Waterhouse and rugby star Phil Kearnas. Police have investigating whether it was an extortion attempt because of the wealth of her family. But yesterday they evacuated a huge area, with five houses either side with the thought the bomb could go off any minute. Thank you, talk to you later. Security expert Tony Loughran is still with us. We heard from police that they consulted with the British military during the operation to remove the device. What sort of information would they have been given? The British military actually are really adapted to look at these particular devices and gather information all the time. They have had obviously history as we talked earlier on the program with the IRA but they would have been given information about the circuittry, whether it would be affected by light, heat, vibration, sensitivity and the way the bomb is as well. They would have been given that kind of information. and the way the bomb is constructed

Although the police now say there were no explosives, it was such an elaborate setup, wasn't it? It wasn't a thug coming along wanting to intimidate. This was highly planned, and highly skilled. What sort of person, do you reckon, could

do something like this am is is in kblo you -- you have got to look at the information available now days, on the Internet, anyone can pick up on, put coming to your particular point about planning it is about the surveillance side. People watch the places. It not being picked up. How good is security for places like this where there is a lot of money. The planning side is quick. You look, recky, have go at the target itself. But even so, I know Kaernsey who lives in that street, no Australian would think anything like this would happen here. It is something we in the pluvies or -- movies or we see about drug lords in America and happen here. It is something we see

Colombia. Is it a turning point? Sorry, you have answered the earlier question, it is turning point but we see it in the movie we see it here. It is where It is where the people are taking the information and the ideas to carry it out. Wow, it is frightening. Thank you, Tony. No problem. With police a short time ago confirming there were no explosives in the device strapped to 18-year-old Madeleine Pulvin the initial story was still horrifying. Not only were we shocked here at home but the story made headlines around the globe. A teenage girl in Sydney has been freed after reportedly spending 10 hours trapped in her home with a suspected bomb strapped to her neck. 18-year-old Madeleine Pulver called police to them. A stranger had entered her family's house in a wealthy suburb of the city, with the device. As the emergency services descended on this exclusive Sydney neighbourhood they found her alone and believed they were dealing with a viable device. The teenager, who's the daughter of a multi-millionaire businessman, was eventually freed after a 10-hour ordeal. Police believe she was targetted in a bid to extort money from her father, William. The 18-year old girl in the middle of it is safe. Here's what happened - this drama took hours to unfold and it began after police in Sydney were called to a wealthy suburb early Wednesday. That's where they found the teen in jeopardy with what appeared to be an explosive device. The bomb squad says the girl was freed and was unharmed. Police haven't explained the nature of the incident just yet. Investors will be watching nervously Relieved after the US share market rose slightly overnight. Different story to yesterday. A whopping $26 billion was wiped off Australian shares yesterday. That dragged our market to its lowest point in almost a year. So are there more falls to come? Or is it a good time to be buying? Are we over playing the thing? Craig James joins us from CommSec. Good morning, again. There have been some pretty significant falls on the US market. Is this just a case of the Aussie market playing follow the leader? Is it normal? Very much normal. Unfortunately, it is normal. The US sneezes, the rest of the world catches cold. If the US market gets cheaper by 2% market gets cheaper by 2%, all the shares have to be cheaper around world 2% to hold their relative values. But now days we shouldn't shares have to be cheaper around the

follow the US, we should follow China, our major trading partner, and the Chinese market held up very well yesterday. Everyone says that, trading partners are in Asia, our economy is rock solid, compare would the rest of the world. But the rest of the world doesn't think so. How do we convince them to say, " them to say, "Hey, fellows we are different." them to say, "Hey, fellows we are different."? It is a matter of time, it takes a long time for things to go through. Fund managers around the world are looking at it takes a long time for these

Australian shares, holding 2% or 3% of assets in Australian shares, the rest of the world is cheaper by 2% rest of the world is cheaper by 2%, as a result they are selling down our shares as well and it is getting to the fund mafgers around the taking the bets. In Australia, half of all the shares on our share to the fund mafgers around the world

market are owned by foreign investors. So if New York says sell and London says sell? Guess what? Our shares are going down. It is the psychology of investors, decisions are made by human beings who get scared and panic and follow the heard. What do you -- follow the herd. What do you say to Australian whose say my superfund is taking a caning? Warren beft says you should buy when others are fearful and selling when others are exuberant. That sort of message does ring home. Got to go back to the global financial crisis. The height of that finance ANZ shares were trading at $ The height of that finance crisis, ANZ shares were trading at $12 a share. Anyone who picked them up at that point in time, trading at $ that point in time, trading at $20 a share now. You pick these things up gradually over time. Look at a much more big-picture view and you can ride these things out. Buying straw hats in Windsor. You have given us five straw lats to buy now for those who do so. What are they? Why them? Well, BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto, the key beneficiaries of the China expansion. They are going to continue to do very well. Rio's result out today, they will be record agprofit something in the order of $ order of $8 billion. QR National, ship all the mining stuff around the country. QR National is the key beneficiary. NAB have a div vend yield of 7% fully franked. How can you get it anywhere else. And Telstra, a dividend yield of 9% Telstra, a dividend yield of 9%. You may not get the same capital appreciation with Telstra but you get a healthy dividend. Thank you, made a note, will check back in six months. Holds him to it, Holds him to it,? Hey? Thank you. First, it was an edict against hugging. Now a Gold Coast primary school is under fire after reportedly banning students from rolling up their sleeves. The Principal at William Duncan State School allegedly told students the look was scruffy. 9-year-old Jayden and his mum Amanda Craig say the school has gone too far. He said, "This looks scruffy. "I don't want you doing this "otherwise you'll get in trouble and be down at the office." Having your sleeves rolled up doesn't warrant a detention or sent to the office. The school says the principal has been taken out of context. That wasn't exactly what he was saying. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper has more from the Gold Coast. Michelle, how did all this start? Good morning, Mel, well it started at school assembly on Tuesday when the principle said to the students, don't up the sleeves of your jumpers because it looks scruffy. This is the same school that tried to ban hugging a year ago and received widespread condemnation. Before that they started monitoring students' lunch boxes if they didn't approve they could confiscate it. It is a school known for pretty unusual rules. Jaidyn's mum is obviously up set. What about other parents? As you can imagine a number of parents are just outraged saying it is ridiculous. Why aren't they worried about education instead of if the children are rolling up sleeves. How far do they want to control them but there are other parents who say the students should look neat and tidy and that is the purpose of a school purpose of a school uniform. It is a matter of public opinion but I am glad my kids don't go there because I am always saying role up your sleeves before you eat so you don't get messy and put a sweet treat in their lunchboxes and they love hugging so there would be detentions for my kids. The school has The school has denied there is a ban on this? Well they are definitely backing down, saying it is not an official rule, it is an unofficial rule and no kids will be disciplined by rolling up their sleeves so that is a good thing. The education department has department has jumped to the defence of the principal saying he has every right to enforce a uniform ban as he sees fit. The way they explained it in a statement to the media, they say the principal merely told the students to take off their jumpers if they were feeling hot rather rolling up their sleeves and looking if they were feeling hot rather than scruffy and teachers Wurundjeriied the -- the teachers Wurundjeriied -- worried the student would be overheated but it has been a balmy 21 troo-dgrys here on the gold cold. We complain the schools get lax but you got to start somewhere. I am going to be in going to be in trouble? Well, let Mel know. The former New York mayor, the broken-windows theory, if you start with small things it helps to control the big things. My grandmother always said take pride in yourself and your self respect goes up, so let us know what you think. It's the ultimate in hands-free - a car that drives itself. BMW is one of the manufacturers making it a reality with its 1 Series line. The new range of cars use cameras, radars and sensors allowing the vehicles to accelerate, brake and steer themselves. As well as being an exciting step forward, the technology should also reduce the risk and cost of serious accidents on our roads. John Cadogan is a motoring expert. John, good morning to you. What can these cars actually do? In the future you will be able to jump behind the wheel, watch Sunrise, eat muesli and catch up on pesky e-mails on the way to work because the car will do it all. Okay, hang on, lots of people criticise cruise control because they say it takes your mind off driving, you sort of switch off. How is this?Dy different? Even in this BMW 650 behind me, I could jump in the car in Martin Place in Sydney and drive to the seven studio at Docklands without touching the pedals. It is something of a leap of faith the first time the car comes to complete stop in traffic withoutia touching the brake pedal but I tell you what, it works. It is stays 50 metres behind the car in front? Is that right am Yes, it has got a microwave radar built into the grill and it is scanathise traffic around, if a slow-moving car cuts you offer your car brakes and cuts back. It is like a fail safe, a autopilot that backs you up. In peak hour traffic you will get cut off. A 650 BMW, an expensive car It is, and the reality is R & D is very expensive so it comes in at the top and only people with names like Hilton and Trump can afford it. But once the genie of technology is of the bottle, everyone adapt to it, has got it and can afford it. In ten once the genie of technology is out

years time, everyone will be driving without touching the pedal. It is amazing, John, an insight into the future. Thank you. If it can fill itself up with petrol and bring the groceries from the boot to the kitchen it is perfect. But Nat has got a mate who has a car who parks itself and swears by it. Reverse parks in, pull up, parallel to the car next to you, to the car next to you, press the button swraop in. That would help a lot of people who can't reverse park? You know when you are learning to drive, put your little markers on the window behind you? You haven't taken them off. I am just kidding. Yeah, yeah. I just say, " Yeah, yeah. I just say, "Silver, back up." Take your hat off. And your tissue box in the back window. Alright. Enough. Stick your tissue box... Sorry. It is very cool. Coming up. Coming up - the celebrations end and the hard work begins for Jack Vidgen. Plus, 'Friends with Benefits'. Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis on their raunchy new movie, soon. Good morning.. You wouldn't know it's still winter.. with another gorgeous sunny day ahead. We can expect a top of 21 in Canberra and Yass. A bit of cloud in Goulburn.. 20 degrees. About 200 Canberra workers from the Agriculture Department will walk off the job for an hour today.. as they fight for better pay and conditions.

A major milestone.. for the Cotter Dam expansion. About one million tonnes of concrete for the 80 metre high dam wall.. will start to be poured this afternoon. A fast train for Canberra is one step closer. We're expected to find out the results of a feasability study today.. into a high speed rail line for the east coast. What it takes to be a successful female leader will dominate talks at the National Press Club. Chief Minister Katy Gallagher will be there.. to share her success stories. And the ACT's new gambling.. counselling.. and support program will be launched.. later this morning. Sunrise brought to you by Jetstar. # Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba Low fares are just part of the story. Later, should David Hicks make money from his book about his time in Guantanamo Bay? News time now though, here's Nat. It's now been confirmed that there were no explosives within the device strapped to the neck of a Sydney school girl. For the latest again I'm joined by Seven News reporter Adam Walters who is outside the Mosman home. Adam do we know any more about the device? Well, before police confirm said it was not explosives they did confirm it had the appearance of a sophisticated and elaborate bomb. The tests have been conducted by forensic detectives through the night and to everybody's relief and retrospect it not explosives. Police have singled out a young female officer for incredible bravery. She turned up when the alarm was first raised at 2. raised at 2.30 yesterday afternoon and sat with Madeleine right through the ordeal, join said by other officers later. Her ordeal is not over, she remains the focus of intense police investigation and will be questioned by police today. They say her family has been through an inzedable or-- through an incredible ordeal and no-one deserves to experience such terror for so long, this is what senior police had to say. The family have endured probably something no one needs to endure and as a parent, certainly something I would never want to contemplate but they have held up remarkably well. Thanks very much for the update. Adam Walters in Mosman, Sydney. Investors will be hoping for a better day on the share market after $26 billion was wiped from stocks yesterday. Falling consumer confidence and fears of a recession in the US led to the biggest plunge in almost a year. Craig James from CommSec says the market jitters might not be over just yet. You've got to remember, here in Australia, something like half of all our shares in the share market are owned by foreign investors so if New York says "Sell" and London says "Sell", guess what - our shares are going down. The economic uncertainty will almost certainly mean interest rates will remain on hold next month. A woman is fighting for life after being struck by a car south-east of Melbourne last night. Emergency crews were called to the scene at Glen Iris after it's believed a man and a woman stepped out in front of the oncoming vehicle. The woman hit the windscreen, sustaining serious head injuries. Her male companion was also taken to hospital. US authorities have dismantled an international child pornography ring, arresting 72 people. The group known as "Dreamboard" had hundreds of members across 14 countries. Members had to post new images of children every 50 days to avoid expulsion. Investigators have been tracking the site since 2009 and say it's one of the worst they've seen. Some of the children featured in these images and videos were just infants and, in many cases, the children being victimised were in obvious, and also intentional, pain. More arrests are expected. Wall Street has avoided the longest drop since 1978 eking out a 29' point gain. Good profit from MasterCard and a jump in share price for Coca-Cola and Intel and speculation the Fed might be turning on the printing press again with more stimulus, certainly lifted investor confidence. Different in Europe with attention on Italian and Spanish debt levels. To the Aussie dollar because of keeping interest rates on hold and what is happening overseas we dropped back to $ overseas we dropped back to $1. overseas we dropped back to $1.07. Time for sport. This is Sunrise sport report brought to you by Swisse. Tired? Stressed? You'll feel better on Swisse. The AFL has cleared Greater Western Sydney of any wrongdoing over their controversial recruitment of Adelaide youngster Phil Davis. Collingwood president Eddie McGuire accused the Giants of cheating by poaching Davis mid-season. But Eddie's anger has been dismissed as self-interest as the Magpies fight to re-sign superstar Dale Thomas. I think Eddie's very protective at the moment. It's gonna happen to most clubs where you're going to lose a player and we've just got to deal with it. Port Adelaide veteran Chad Cornes has ruled out switching to the Giants by confirming he'll retire at season's end. Yes, great club. Mpts a great footballing family in Australia. Test and Origin star Sam Thaiday says he's the best man to replace retiring legend Darren Lockyer as skipper of the Broncos. Thaiday also wants to lead the NRL's Indigenous team when Preston Campbell calls it quits. Meantime, Matt Bowen is set to play out his career in North Queensland after signing a 2-year contract extension. The Cowboys have also signed Roosters centre Kane Linet to replace the departing Willie Tonga. The Melbourne Victory has issued an ultimatum to Socceroos star Harry Kewell as the 33-year-old continues to delay a decision on his footballing future. Victory officials are tired of the drawn-out negotiations and plan to withdraw their lucrative offer if it's not accepted today. The Victory are keen to start planning for the upcoming A-League season which begins in October. Apparently Sydney FC very interest said as well. So between Melbourne and Sydney, hopefully Harry will end up playing here. Great boost for the A-League. We are taking you through the weather this morning.
