Geelong's premiership captain Cameron Ling is set to call time on his AFL career today The 30-year-old has decided to end his 246-game career in the best way possible after leading the Cats to their third flag in five seasons. Ling kicked the match-sealing goal in the 38-point Grand Final win over Collingwood. Joel Selwood is expected to assume the captaincy. The Cats will parade the Premiership Cup through the streets of Geelong today. A record run-scoring spree from David Warner has propelled New South Wales into the Twenty20 Champions League semifinals. Warner notched the highest score in Champions League history this morning, blasting an unbeaten 135 from 69 balls against the Chennai Super Kings. The opener's heroics powered the Blues to 2/201.

Electronics giant Apple has unveiled its latest mobile phone. Many had been expecting an iPhone 5 as the replacement for the iPhone 4. But Apple bosses have, in the past couple of hours, released details of their new iPhone 4S. For more we're joined from outside the Apple announcement in Silicon Valley by Seven News US bureau chief Mike Amor. Good morning. Newly minted tech geek. What can we expect from the iPhone 4S? I think I should point out, Nat, my three-year-old knows more about my iPhone than I do but here I am outside the headquarters of Apple and that briefing has broken up. There is some disappointment among the tech geeks who came for the iPhone 5 announcement and got iPhone 4S. Apple bosses say it will look the same on the outside but an iPhone 5 announcement and got the

entirely different device inside. An 85 dual core processor, meaning it is twice as fast as down loading information, seven times as fast with graphics. Good news for gamers. We saw Tim Cook for the first time today, who replaced Steve jobs, by all reports, he did a great job of selling the product. The iPhone 4S will have an 8 pixel camera, Apple says it will be the best camera and video camera many people have ever owned. But the best part for mine, was a feature called Siri, an intelligence assistance which will tell you what is the weather to be like, is the rich to be like, is the Richmond Football Club win the premiership next year. tell you what is the weather going

It wiv give you the answer, is it going to rain today? Yes. Probably no and Richmond Football Club winning the premiership next year? No. I notice him wearing a T-shirt, not a collar and tie and that was the only difference but any announcements? Tay are talking about the ICloud where all the important can be stored outside of the computer on a cloud. And the operating system IOS five which will be available later this month which means you can sync your devices without attaching them by a cord. A lot of excitement about the devices coming out. We know iPhone 4S will be released later this week, here, not sure about the devices coming out. We know the

Australia but they say it will outstrip the number of sales of the iPhone 4 when it was released. If you want one, be prepared to line-up at the Apple store. I must admit, I am a Mac nut and getting the new stuff but I getting tired how frequently the new stuff is coming out and I think I will stick with the old one. Hmm, GFC two as well. Am nuts, do you think they are releasing too much? You have to buy new stuff. Use your iPhone and Tweet us on that one. Still to come - what the falling Aussie dollar means for your family budget. But next, police get the power to pat down teens suspected of having alcohol. And Guy says sorry. You know, there's obviously a time and a place To say something like that and I definitely chose the wrong place to say it. But what really prompted the 'X Factor' judge to tell contestant Mitchell to pull his head in?

It's crazy how good I feel in my skin. Why? Because it regenerates better at night, thanks to new Age Perfect Intense Nutrition Night. It's repaired, firmer, incredibly radiant. You?

A who's who of Hollywood lining up for a confronting new campaign. But all is not what it seems. Find out what they're really going on about, later in the show. It's a different F word? Is it? Can't say too much. I don't actually know myself. Also making news, the latest crackdowns on teenage drinking. Adults who supply alcohol to underage kids in Victorian homes will face on-the-spot fines from next month. Any adult having a party or function would need parental permission to give an under 18 a drink. Otherwise, they could be fined up to $7,000. Good! This isn't giving your own kids a drink, this is your kids go to a party and some other parent givers them a drink. Great idea. Hmmmm givers them a drink. Great idea. Hmmmm. And in Queensland, police want greater powers to be able to frisk teenagers for alcohol. Police say any liquor would be tipped out and parents notified. But civil libertarians fear it's going too far to tackle the problem. Oh, bull! Gee. So, with schoolies just around the corner should police be allowed to pat down teenagers for alcohol? for giving children a drink? Two big issues. It's got to be a good thing giving police the powers. It is a big problem, no doubt and and it calls for a big solution. I think it is absolutely right and the other one, most importantly, I totally agree with, if your kids are going to another under age kids' party you don't expect that kid's parent to provide alcohol to yours, if you don't know about it. It is amazing how often it happens? Really? Yeah, surprising. Moving on - and the 'X Factor' controversy rages on despite an on-air apology from judge Guy Sebastian during last night's show. for telling singer Mitchell Callaway to overhaul his attitude. You've got to be focused and you've got to, to be honest, not be read to people. And have the work ethic, for you to not learn your lyrics and for you to, at times, be rude to crew, you really have to pull that in and rein that in because you won't last long in this competition or this industry if you do that. Last night Sebastian apologised for the way he addressed the issue. You know there is a time and a place to say something like that and I definitely chose the wrong place to say it. For that I am really sorry but I definitely stand by what I say to my boys. I tell them, regardless of the pressure, and Mitchell and the boys are under huge amounts of pressure, you always have to have a good attitude, if we are going to pull people in about being late to rehearsals, you have to show love and respect to everybody you come across and I still still stand by that but I apologise for Mitchell and choosing the wrong time to say that. that but I apologise for upsetting

There are reports Guy was referring to a behind-the-scenes problem with Mitchell taunting another contestant. Apparently he was going around with a pin and pricking people with a pin. So what do you think? Guy have apologised for pin. So what do you think? Should comments. The Soap Box was split yesterday? Guy have apologised for the

Yes, very split. I am a bit disappointed he apologised. I didn't think he was too harsh. Toughen up, Guy. As the vocal micro minority, tough love, you did it in a good way. Yes.

The Federal Government is calling for calm after Japan confirmed it will continue whaling in the Southern Ocean this summer.

Knox dozen leave Italy in-- doesn't leave Italy entirely innocent, accusing a man of slander. The defender says she is a she delve. While the million-dollar deals may be flooding in, Amanda Knox will have to work hard to change the wider public perception.

Adults who supply alcohol to underage kids in Victorian homes will face on-the-spot fines from next month. It follows figures showing 1 in 4 has their first drink by 15. In future, any adult having a party or function would need parental permission to give an under 18 a drink. Otherwise, they could be fined up to $7,000. And in Queensland it's just weeks before the start of schoolies and police want greater powers to frisk teens for liquor. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper joins us now with more. Good morning. Take us through what police want. Good morning, Nat, well, police to be allowed greater power to be able to pat down teenagers or Good morning, Nat, well, police want

children that they suspect are carrying alcohol. But only if they are of the same sex. At this point, police are able to pat down minors if they are carrying weapons or um, spray cans or stolen goods but they want this power extended to now include alcohol. So what this means is that teenagers may also be able to be detained by police if they are not the same sex. So if a male police officer believes a teenage girl is carrying alcohol, he can detain her until a female police officer arrives, which could be some time if they are in a remote area or out in the country. Police are to tip out the alcohol and contact out in the country. Police are able the teenager's parents. Quite a bit of reaction so far? Civil libertarian are questioning just how effective the new will be and whether they will kern underage drinking. But the assistant just how effective the new powers

commission director says it is important to curb underage drinking and the new powers are important to implement and he believes teenagers who are drinking unsupervised are at risk and can risk and can engage in rivy behaviour. But the prime and misconduct commissioner warns it would increase crimes would increase crimes against police. Here's Kochie. It was meant to be the adventure of a lifetime - 3 mates riding their quad bikes through 38 countries. Just a few hundred kilometres from home though, tragedy hit. Now, the friends are about to break the world record they wanted so badly but it will always be bittersweet. In August last year, three mates set off aiming to break a world record. It's the longest journey on a quad bike. So 27,000km was the record. It would be a dangerous journey for best friends Ted... ..Jamie... ..and Val. # It's the wide open # Their amazing race began in Turkey and took them through Europe on their way to Africa. Their final leg would be to cross Australia from west to east. I'm going to make it, Mum. I'm going to make it home. The risks were always real. But one morning this happened. (TYRES SCREECH) Car swerved on the left side, and lost control. 24-year-old Val lost his life. Ted and Jamie brought their best friend home. But they decided to continue the journey for him. They rode the last few hundred kilometres to break the world record. Hey! Far out. Yeah! In Val's memory, the ride goes on raising over $100,000 for charity. At the end of this month, Jamie and Ted will finish in Sydney crossing the Harbour Bridge as Val had planned. Ted and Jamie join me now. Good morning, boys. Has this trip changed you? Yes, it has definitely changed me. Been in 38 countries over 14 months, we have had to go through places like Libya, Egypt, sedan, we had a paramilitary convoy in northern Kenya. Had guys with Kenya. Had guys with guns strapped to them and grenades. Obviously, the challenges of losing my best friend of ten years. It's changed me in a lot of ways. Yes, tden ted, did you anticipate how full on and dangerous this would be? The adventure of a lifetime, young blokes love to do how full on and dangerous this trip

this sort of stuff, but did it go beyond the point that you had anticipated? Yes, Kochie, I guess, we anticipated the risks that rur going on and it is why we did planning, did first-aid courses, took our vaccinations and research but how do you plan for sleeping next to lions and hippos or how do you plan doing first aid on your best friend when hit by a car. Life changes. You think you know everything and the next second you realise you don't know anything at all. We planned as much as we could but it is the way life goes sometimes. You did lose your best mate. Do you regret the trip, at all? Um, I mean, I regret the fact that we lost him and that his family lost him and his other friends but, you know, we had a seriously big dream and you know, we set out to achieve something really great. I can't say that I regret it. We all knew the risks. As hard as it is to say. Ted, you are almost at the end of the trip, are you looking forward to heading home? Living the quiet Yes, Kochie, I love Sydney. And to get back home, I mean to complete, heading home? Living the quiet life?

as Jamie said, 14 months of this challenge. We have got a big day ahead. Working with the New South Wales Premier's Department to start ride day from Newcastle on 22nd October, a Saturday and crossing the harbour bridge with over 500 motor bikes. Coming home in such a way with just the support of everyone with us. I mean, we are doing it on

Riders Awareness Week, the start of that. It has been a dream of us since we started in Istanbul, we had the dream in mind, to cross the harbour bridge. Yep, come home. We want the support of every day Australians. Sydneysiders, by supporting supporting us you support the fact that young guys and people can their dreams. At the end of the day, that young guys and people can live everyone deserves the right to realise their own dreams. You raised a serious money for charity. It will be a terrific tribute to Val as well. Guys, we wish you all the best. Good on you. Thank you. Just one more mention, if anyone wants to come join us, come to our web site, quadsquad. to our web site, quadsquad.Org, follow us on Facebook. We will be in Sydney on 22nd November so join ush.

The stage is set for another summer of whale wars in the Southern Ocean. Japan has confirmed it will resume whale hunting while the Sea Shepherd organisation has vowed to do whatever it takes to stop them. It's a high-stakes game played out in treacherous seas at the bottom of the world. (SIRENS WAIL) Last season the Sea Shepherd organisation tormented the Japanese whalers so badly, they cut the hunt short. But Japan's Fisheries Minister announced yesterday the fleet will be returning this summer despite not completing a promised review of its whaling program. (SPEAKS JAPANESE) We say to Japan they do not need to do this. There is no justification for continued whaling. They should not be sending their fleet to the Southern Ocean. And the whaling fleet will have some added protection this year, accompanied by a Japanese Coast Guard patrol ship. In response, Sea Shepherd leader Captain Paul Watson has written on the group's website "Hoka hey", which in Lakota Indian means "It's a good day to die." Australia is appealing for calm. We don't want to see one wrong action compounded by violence. Japan is yet to declare what quotas it's setting for this year's hunt.

Police won't confirm they're investigating. But News Limited claims Mr Joyce received the letter at his home. In one part it says, "All your evil plans will come back to you very swiftly". Mr Joyce has sent an email to staff regarding bullying and intimidation. The Qantas boss says threats are deplorable and will not work. Joining us now from Canberra is Qantas Corporate Affairs boss Olivia Worth. Good morning. Can you confirm that Alan Joyce and yourself have received death threats? It absolutely is true as the tellGraf reports. Unfortunately there have been a number of threats received by the management and work force which is why Alan took the step yesterday to say it is not on. It is saform of intimidation and we won't stand for it. Is security being increased for you and other Qantas executives? We have absolutely looked at security over the last couple of month, obviously the safety and security of all employees is critical. If there is any incidents like these threats being brought to our attention they are being looked into investigated and looked at by police. Was it a shock to you personally? Are you fearful There has been a campaign going on for some time, not only targeted by for some time, not only targeted byself but also Alan and other senior executives. It is a US play book unions are using and personally attacking management. It is the way to pry to pry influence the outcome of an industrial dispute. It can be hurtful and it is not helpful and we are hoping it can calm down. It is getting dirty. It is getting dirty. Everyone has a right to take industrial action but the language being used by union leaders is unacceptable and creating a very tense environment. We want

Children as young as 12 have become the new targets for identity theft. Online scammers are finding it all too easy to steal kids' information because they share so many details on social networking sites. Once the information is compiled it's stored until the victim turns 18. Criminals can then apply for a credit card, a loan or identity documents in the child's name. The issue has been revealed at an international fraud summit on the Gold Coast. Queensland Fraud Squad Superintendent Brian Hay Good morning. How widespread is this? Well, we really are dealing with the unknown factor. There have been documented cases in the US. And when it comes to the Internet, there is no geographical boundaries. We know that the crooks have been out there harvesting identity data for some time. We have got to change the way we view the Internet and how much information we put out there and realise once it is on there, it is on there forever. There is no taking it back. We know the crooks have been data warehousing identity information and building search engines to profile and build identities, one piece from here and one from there and build a profile on someone so they can target them. Profiles are worth money. So why are Aussie children, in particular, being targeted? It is children everywhere. I mean, the reality is that we think about the Internet as a here and now, not thinking about the future. We need our children to be aware if you surrender your soul and identity to the Internet it could come back to bite you in a very savage way, years down the track. They may think I don't have a car, I don't in the bank, what have I got to lose? Your identity is a commodity don't have a car, I don't have money

worth money. Parents may think that too. Is it up

parents to police it or is time for more to be done? I think it is time for more to be done. The children are our life bood blood and our future, the Internet is not a playground without repercussions. We find it out every day. We need to start educating children and all facets of the community that the Internet is a wonderful thing. It offers opportunities, however, there is a dark side and we need to get greater education how to manage the Internet safely. Thank you very much for joining us this morning. Thank you. The Australian dollar has fallen further overnight to around 94.25 US cents. It follows the drop yesterday after the Reserve Bank kept interest rates on hold at 4.75% for the 11th month in a row due to increasing uncertainty about the global economy. attend the Government's 2-day tax forum in Canberra to look at overhauling Australia's tax system. So what does a weaker dollar really mean? Let's bring in our panel of finance experts. Craig James from CommSec, Executive Chairman of Aussie Home Loans, John Symond, and tax forum mediator Michael Pascoe from Fairfax media's 'BusinessDay'. Good morning to you all. Craig, let's start with you. The weaker Aussie dollar is obviously good news for retailers. And also exporters? Yes, it is good news for a whole range of businesses. Businesses have been crying out and saying, " been crying out and saying, Aussie dollar is too high. It is been crying out and saying, "The making life tough for us." You can imagine tourism areas, exporters, more and more generally, the rural and regional areas. Even retailers because people have been going online and buying goods or going overseas and buying goods. So Aussie dollar coming down is good news. Travellers may not like it. overseas and buying goods. So the

Some people believe the Aussie dollar is some sort of economic virility symbol, if it is riseing the economy must be doing well. It not the case, the fact that Aussie

dollar dollar has come down is good for business. Great for exporters. But what about householders? Does it mean food and petrol prices and imports will go up? Well, that is the concern, Kochie. Because we are looking at petrol prices going up. On the way up. you know, this is a reverse side to, prices going up. On the way up. And for business consumers are looking at higher energy costs and unfortunately, you can't everbody with a high dollar. unfortunately, you can't satisfy Yep. Michael, what do you reckon about the dollar at this level? Is it still fundamentally strong? Or is it gravitating back to the sort of average in the high 70? Kochie, that is the very point. This is still a strong dollar. We lose perspective awfully quickly. Saying the dollar is back to where it was a year ago, a year ago it was strong. Around 95 cents the dollar is still strong. This is a time when there is enormous international turmoil. The last time there was enormous international turmoil the Aussie dollar dropped to 60 cents. It says a different way the world is viewing Australia. We are getting recognition for having a strong economy and strong banks and samuch better set up than the rest of them. Anywhere between 80 and 1. Anywhere between 80 and 1.20 a strong dollar. Any pressure, that continues. Let's talk interest rates, no surprise the Reserve Bank kept them on hold. Were you surprised indicate agcut in the future? I am not surprised. I think inReserve Bank is finally waking the xhee is stalling outside -- economy is stalling outside the inReserve Bank is finally waking up

mining sector. The Reserve Bank should have given a boost in confidence and cut naitsz a quarter -- interest rates a quarter per cent and give people a reason to buy and help retailers and manufacturers. It is not far around the corner Reserve Bank should and I think will, cut interest rates. Will it come on Melbourne Cup day? is not far around the corner the

Certainly the chances are narrowing. If the inflation figures are on the low side at the end of the month, few retailers would put up prices in this environment, if they are good, the Reserve Bank will give serious thought to it. It depends what is happening. If the Aussie dollar falls in a big way, it is providing stimulus to the economy. If some of the market determined rates are falling that provides stimulus too. Michael masko, see you for -- Michael, see you for day two of the tax forum. Personal tax? And also transfer taxes, the whole social welfare interaction and the way the tax system is run. Still a lot of talking to be done. Hopefully we will get some action out of it. Thank you, guys, appreciate it.

Yes, in fact, I just learned perhaps we will be able to get it in store in Australia the same day Americans, next week, preorders in Australia the same day as start at the end of the week. It will come with a rub though, if you want to buy the device out right, $ want to buy the device out right, $800. Less with a plan.

Jessica Palmer's family from Bath have reportedly travelled to Australia to comfort the young woman. Tindall remains in New Zealand where his team has reached the World Cup semifinals. Like his wife, his Coach Martin Johnson is sticking by him. If we get to a point where you're going to film you and point the finger it's a pretty sad day. So now the hunt is on to track down Jessica Palmer for an interview. I don't know if you would rather be found by the Daily Mail or a seething Zara Phillips.
