Without a similar stimulus package, is playing with political fire, Malcolm Turnbull and he knows it. his stand would not be popular. He told Parliament The stock market fell this morning of the package. on news of his rejection in the Senate But the Greens and minor parties look like coming to the rescue. we are not in obstruction mood.

Small business groups applaud the $42 billion scheme, but say they need more targeted help. Some are cutting their own incomes just to retain staff. Big business like to impress their shareholders and look lean and mean by sacking as many people as they can,

and that's not a traditional small business behaviour. We try and hang in there. Construction workers and the Master Builders are calling for the increased first home owners grants

All the major banks have now passed on the latest interest rate cut, making some new mortgages cheaper than renting. And while there's been a surge in new home buyers, the banks have been cracking down on borrowers. Living the great Australian dream, Murray Opat soaks up the view from his new 2-bedroom apartment. The first-home buyer took the plunge after years of paying rent.

I'm 41 and I seriously thought I'd probably never do it. But with a progressive cut in interest rates and the $24,000 first-home owners grant, owning his own home suddenly saved him up to $70 a week. than I would be renting. I'm probably paying less mortgage He's not alone. Sydney developers have seen an 8-fold increase in interest from first-home buyers sick of paying dead rent money. Everybody should be getting into it. If they've got a reasonable income with some deposit - they need 5% to 10% deposit - it's the best time for them to get into the first-home buyer market now. And that's the catch. to get into the property market, While it might make financial sense some banks are no longer willing to lend borrowers the full amount, or even 95% of the loan. There could be a smaller pool of lenders for them to choose from, and therefore a smaller pool of loan products for them to choose from. It really is a matter of them doing their research. And capitalising on the interest rate plunge and expected rush from home buyers, a new 840-lot residential development in the city's north-west was launched today, complete with its very own Greg Norman-designed golf course. is in hot demand. Stonecutters Ridge at Colebee Sites are selling unseen in what's fast becoming Sydney's new boom town.

The State's Catholic teachers have called off tomorrow's stop work meetings. They were due to walk off the job for two hours over salary and conditions, but an agreement was reached late today. Australia's leading baseball agent has been caught out breaching a child protection order. He's been running a talent scout agency, despite being ordered not to following a scandal over child porn. He's known as the Jerry Maguire of Australian baseball. For years, Trevor Jarrett has owned and run a company called BJS Player Management,

signing Australian boys to lucrative baseball contracts in the US. But in 2005 he was banned from any such activity after being convicted of possessing child porn. He was placed on the child protection register. But he broke the rules, acknowledging today in court he'd continued to scout for talent. Tendered in court were letters Jarrett wrote to young players and their families offering his services. They read: In the letters, Jarrett boasts to have almost 50 clients.

He discovered Australia's Grant Balfour, who's now on a multimillion-dollar contract in the US, and last year pitched in the World Series.

Drivers using Sydney's most polluted tunnel they could be breathing easier by the end of the year. The State Government has re-announced plans for an air filtration plant on the M5 East tunnel,

but it's only a trial, and might not work. It's been labelled one of the worst tunnels in the world for air quality. Last year experts warned the smog in the M5 could cause asthma, lung infections and even cancer. So it's little wonder Premier Nathan Rees was breathing easy about work starting on a multimillion-dollar filtration system. Better air quality in the tunnel, an improvement for the residents nearby and jobs, jobs, jobs for NSW. It will create jobs - 500 in total - but how well it actually clears the fumes is another question. The $65 million air filtration plant is just a trial. A 280m tunnel will suck air out, clean it, and pipe it back in. But it's only ever been done before in Japan and Spain. If it doesn't work, it'll be shut down. We are confident that it'll have a marked effect on air quality in the tunnel, but we'll wait and see. Those living nearby and those who drive through it have complained for years. when it first announced the filtration trial in June 2006. with which Nathan Rees If that's the sort of speed with which Nathan Rees is going to start infrastructure projects in NSW, this State is in for a difficult time. Work on the filtration, in the westbound tunnel only, should be finished by the end of the year. Josh Murphy, Ten News. New Rees Government minister John Robertson has failed to front the cameras

in his first test as Corrective Services Minister. in protest over the plan to privatise Parklea and Cessnock correctional facilities.

We are the professionals, we are at the front line, and we will not be the butt of their mistakes any more. Thank you. (CHEERING) The Government insists reform is needed to stem significant blow-outs in prison guards' overtime. Quick-fix diet plans sold in pharmacies are under attack. An undercover investigation has found many staff are selling the weight loss programs

without proper training. Self-styled weight loss guru Tony Ferguson was out spruiking his diet products today, showing off the huge results and revelling in the positive feedback. My girlfriend joined up and had lost three kilos in a week, and it was really easy for her. So I thought, "Oh, I'll give it a go after holidays." Three months down the track I'd lost all my weight. His diet program is just one of many sold in pharmacies across the country. But consumer groups say, "buyer beware". What you don't know as a consumer is how little training the so-called experts or consultants are actually giving you. An undercover investigation found that consultants had received only basic training in weight loss plans and didn't take into account customers' medical or family history. You really can't just have a one-size-fits-all. To actually be on a weight-loss program you have to register with us, you have to sit down and you cannot self-select that product. You have to tell us about your history. Pharmacists back the diet programs and say staff should be recommending them. These programs do work, and last year alone 20 million kilos of weight were lost these meal replacement programs. Nutritionists say many of the diet plans simply set people up to fail. Meal replacements may help you lose weight quickly, but they don't work in the long term. It's so far from reality that there's no transition phase for people to transfer from the meal replacements to actual food and nutrition. Consumer groups are calling for a national accreditation system to ensure minimum standards of training. Meredith Marks, Ten News.

Two-thirds of Queensland is already disaster declared and now the north is under siege again with ex-cyclone Ellie threatening to re-form in the Gulf and a new low is swirling off Cairns even more destructive rain. threatening to bring Pouring water over a wet towel. It's the worst wet season in more than three decades In Ingham,

they've had a staggering 700mm in three days.

The floods have cut major highways between Townsville and Cairns and with supply trucks stranded - major supermarkets are running out of groceries. These Chinese tourists, who we found stranded on the highway yesterday, foolishly decided to try to find a way around the floodwaters last night.

They and their van ended 1.5m under water - washed off a flooded bridge.

The water had reached to above the dash level of the vehicle so there was a lot of water in the car. The family, who can't swim, owe their lives to a lone policeman

who winched them and their van to safety. They were too scared to get out of the vehicle because of the water pressure and fear of crocodiles. Crocodiles are being seen in flooded towns across north Queensland and the Gulf. The ING Direct finance report now, with Amber Muir, clearly biting some iconic companies? and Amber, the global crisis is It certainly is, Bill. and the Flying Kangaroo Australia's biggest company, BHP, each reported big falls in interim profits, while David Jones announced a collapse in sales of more than 6%. The retailer said it was hardest hit in the big-ticket electricals, furniture and homewares. Qantas blamed lower demand and high fuel prices for its profit slump of more than 68%. As for BHP, its net profit halved to US$2.6 billion due to weaker commodity prices, but the CEO says the company is weathering the storm well.

We did not forsee the speed of deterioration that we've now witnessed. It's unlike anything I've seen before and unlike, I think, what most people have seen. The Big Australian still paid higher dividends. At the closing bell, the All Ords was down almost 2%.

And that's the day in finance. It's day two of Britain's biggest white out in decades.

Most of the snow has stopped falling and airports are operating again, but thousands of schools remain closed. There's plenty of snow and plenty of people pleased with another day to play in it. From the air, much of Britain is still clearly snowed under. And although the buses and trains were back online,

8,000 schools across the country remained shut. Our advice was to schools they didn't open. about people getting to and from school, because not only were we not able to grit all of the roads,

but also concern about people falling over on pavements. as the UK ground to a halt. The world was watching Now there are fears the country's infrastructure has become an international laughing stock, frozen solid by few inches of snow. If the UK is seen to be a place that can't be open for business, then it's not going to put the UK in a good place for where internationally mobile companies

are making investment decisions. Most airports reopened to clear the backlog of traffic. Snow is still falling in Wales and across England's south-west, forcing snow ploughs on and motorists off the slippery, iced-over roads. In inner-city London, where the snow so rarely settles this deeply, slowly.

and by nightfall, much of the white blanket had turned to a dirty sludge. A fresh coat will be laid soon enough - forecasters are predicting further heavy falls from Thursday, meaning more delays and disruptions and, quite possibly, days off.

An American soldier has survived his first skydive despite his instructor dying mid-air. Daniel Pharr was strapped to the instructor for the tandem jump. The man had a heart attack after releasing the parachute, but the soldier knew from watching TV he had to use the toggles to steer. My path was such that I was going towards a house, so I just pulled on the toggle and turned right and then I was going for some trees, so I turned right again and landed in a field. The 25-year-old tried to resuscitate the instructor when they reached the ground. The tandem jump was a Christmas gift from Pharr's girlfriend.
