One member of cabinet said Another minister says for the Premier, it would have been electoral suicide tried the same thing and failed. pointing out Morris Iemma to punish anyone. I won't be reshuffling They'll continue to do so. All ministers have my support. there is no spill, As far as I'm concerned, there is no speculation. there is no plot,

At least for now, is opinion polling but the next obvious trigger due in three weeks time. and turns left There are plenty more twists before the issue is resolved, Peter. A self-help course is being linked of a young Sydney woman. to the dramatic death left her in a highly disturbed state, An inquest has heard how the course from an office window. before she leapt to her death was known by everyone Rebekah Lawrence as a shy, modest. and stable young woman So when she stripped naked and jumped to her death from a city building nearly four years ago, her husband was left crying out for answers. It's hard reliving everything but this is all about closure - finding out what really happened to Rebekah.

Today a coroner's inquest heard that two days before her death the 34-year-old had completed a high intensity self-help course,

which was promoted as journey to the core of the human spirit. David Booth told the court it left his wife Then two hours before she jumped - she slipped into a psychotic state. Counsel assisting Robert Bromwich said

For years, Rebekah Lawrence had wanted to attend the program to resolve issues in her life, but the inquest heard that she been warned by a friend that the four-day course was likely to leave her feeling upset and unbalanced. On the day of her death, Rebekah tried to contact the Cremorne-based self-help group but couldn't get through. Damian Ryan, Nine News.

When you drop your toddler off at a childcare centre how sure are you that they're being well looked after? There are calls tonight for tougher penalties against childcare centres that fail to meet proper standards, with news that of the 10 centres prosecuted this year - seven remain open. It's called Honey Pot Haven, but its reputation is anything but sweet. Children were humiliated, there were instances where they were shouted at, one incident where the physical handling of the child was not appropriate.

The licensee was convicted and fined $8,500. I had no idea at all. It's not something that I was aware of. So far this year, 10 childcare centres have been prosecuted and fined about $124,000. Seven of the centres are still operating,

most of them in the Illawarra region. When kids are hurt in any kind of way, when their dignity is not upheld, I think that the penalties need to be a lot stiffer. Two of the centres didn't have staff qualified to care for kids under two. This is a snapshot of other offences, including dirty floors and furniture, children exposed to broken power switches and dangerous chemicals.

The gap under this fence makes a dangerous escape route. The breaches are posted on the department's website. But the centres are only exposed when court action is completed. Then, to download the information, parents have to go through several steps. Hiding it behind a website that's really difficult to navigate isn't a good way of getting that information across. If people have suggestions for how we can improve the website, we'd love to hear them. Gabriella Rogers, Nine News. A trial of a swine flu vaccine for children began today at the Children's Hospital at Westmead. 400 children aged between six months and eight years will be recruited from around the country to test the dosage and safety of the vaccine. The results of the trial should be known by September, with plans for the vaccine to be available by October. A trial on adults is already under way. Malcolm Turnbull has moved to restore his leadership authority by unveiling a new emissions trading proposal. But even though it's greener and cheaper than the Government's plan - Mr Turnbull admits it's still not Liberal Party policy. Some feathered inhabitants of Parliament House

insisted on sharing lunch with National Party Senate leader Barnaby Joyce.

(Squawks) As someone said, that may be why they're called 'mag-pies'. Boom! Boom! But Senator Joyce, the Coalition's leading climate change sceptic,

sees nothing amusing in an emissions trading scheme. Even the new, streamlined super-duper version unveiled by Malcolm Turnbull this morning. The National Party position remains the same. We will not be voting for an ETS. Which is why Mr Turnbull had hardly explained the details before he made a frank admission. No, it is not Coalition policy. Mr Turnbull and independent senator Nick Xenophon commissioned a private consultancy firm to develop the plan. They claim it would cut carbon emissions by twice as much as the Government scheme by 2020

at two-thirds the cost. They say household electricity bills would rise by only 5% in the short term, compared with a 25% hike if Kevin Rudd's legislation is passed. On top of that... It will ensure that there are be more jobs - more Australians in work. Climate Change Minister Penny Wong says it all has the distinct taste of magic pudding. It is not a credible alternative. It's a smokescreen. But it gives Mr Turnbull a credible reason to argue that rather than rushing flawed legislation through parliament, the Government should negotiate with the Opposition for an improved scheme. And it will provide justification when Coalition senators reject the Government's bill on Thursday.

Laurie Oakes, Nine News. The controversial radio stunt, that saw the Kyle and Jackie O Show taken off the air, hasn't stopped them from being nominated for three top radio awards

including best on air team. The Commercial Radio Association says

finalists were chosen weeks before the lie detector stunt and winners have not been decided yet. Meanwhile, ratings figures show that

many viewers have abandoned Australian Idol, possibly because Kyle Sandilands remains as a judge on the early episodes. All is set for a thrilling finale to the Ashes series at The Oval next week after Australia completed a crushing victory in the fourth Test. The series is now locked at 1-1, after the Aussies won by an innings and 80 runs in Leeds. Mitchell Johnson took 5/69 in the second innings, Marcus North named man of the match. Australia's Ashes campaign - back on track, COMMENTATOR - Bowled him. There it is - Australia have their win - they're back in the series. The crushing win over the old enemy complete in just 2.5 days. Rich reward for the tourists and captain Ricky Ponting. I've said from the start how much it would mean to me to win here. It took three balls for the first wicket to fall. Edged and caught.

And when Prior knicked one to Haddin, an embarrassing drubbing looked certain. But Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann

were keen on restoring at least some national pride. That is really thumped away. It was only a matter of time before England's tail completely crumbled, Mitchell Johnson picking up five wickets. Ponting admits his biggest challenge will be keeping a lid on excitement levels. There's 10 days between now and the fifth and deciding Test at The Oval, an eternity in Test cricket.

Andrew Strauss isn't panicking, opting instead for calm reflection.

As a team we've always come back well after performing badly. Not since 1966 has a fifth Test decided an Ashes series. Clint Stanaway, Nine News, Headingley. In the news ahead - the crackdown on pedestrians distracted by their iPods. And some of the world's greatest masterpieces heading to Australia.

Crossing the road while listening to your iPod could land you with a fine or even in jail under a tough new crackdown by police. They claim there's been an alarming rise in the number of accidents caused by distracted pedestrians wandering into danger. Tuning out the traffic...'s a dangerous distraction.

Can you hear the traffic alright when you've got your iPod on? No. Not at all?

36 decibels of isolation. There's been a surge in pedestrian deaths this year, with 36 killed on our roads. Police are cracking down on people wandering into traffic, distracted by music or mobile phones. A pedestrian listening to an iPod was hit by a car, walked in the path of a car. Wasn't killed, fortunately, but received injuries and a fine.

Last year police issued 460 fines to pedestrians not paying attention to road safety. And if you think a $100 fine sounds a bit steep, there is a far tougher penalty with police warning distracted pedestrians who cause traffic accidents could end up in jail. Walk in front of the car, make the car swerve to miss them and the car hits a tree and kills or injures the driver or passenger,

in that car, they could be liable for very serious offences. Traffic safety groups say manufacturers are partly responsible. These companies have been ignoring their responsibilities for far too long - these devices are lethal. Police hope the tough penalties will encourage common sense. If you're going to run around with these on,

I think you've got to be mindful of what you're doing at the same time. Amelia Adams, Nine News. Asia's most ruthless terrorist has dodged police yet again, with Indonesian authorities revealing that a man killed in a weekend raid was not the fanatic, Noordin Top, as they first believed. Fingerprints of the victim don't match, but police say the terrorist leader was at the house shortly before they arrived. Dozens of people are missing as a typhoon causes havoc in China. Typhoon Morakot is a monster, 1,600km wide. It caused havoc in Taiwan over the weekend and now the mainland is reeling, with floods forcing the evacuation of at least one million people. It's being billed as a once in a lifetime opportunity,

a chance to see some of the world's greatest art here in Australia. The Musee d'Orsay in Paris is sending more than 100 of its post-Impressionist masterpieces to Canberra's National Gallery. They include works by van Gogh, Cezanne and Monet. The exhibition opens in early December

and runs until April next year.

Steph is next with sport

and things just get better and better for Parramatta? Peter, they're surging towards the finals on the back of four straight wins. And now another star is ready to return from a long-term injury.

And one of our winter Olympic medal hopefuls comes a cropper at Thredbo.

Former Origin prop Ben Ross has signed with Souths for next season, but he needs to pass a medical on Wednesday on his injured neck to complete a miracle comeback.

Meanwhile, Parramatta's finals charge received another huge boost today with their forgotten star Feleti Mateo saying he's ready to play after three months on the sidelines with a bicep injury. New heroes have emerged in Feleti Mateo's absence, including Fuifui Moimoi, who even avoided a tackle from the Eels media manager so he wouldn't have to front the cameras today. Despite his position as chief play-maker, Mateo knows he can't stroll into the reborn Eels side.

It's a credit to the team and shows how good the team's going. It was unfortunate to get injured, but it's just part of the game. Mateo has been frustrated not being part of the Eels' charge,

but is fuming at suggestions he's at war with the coach. You and the coach, you alright? Yeah, sweet, mate. I love this place, I love this club. I've said it lots of times -

he's a hard man, like I said, a lot of times, but he's fair. The Eels want to be sure there are no issues with Mateo

and club chief executive Paul Osborne will sit down with him this week to tell him he wants him to be an Eel for the long run. On the sidelines for the long haul, Souths skipper Roy Asotasi. He needs a knee reconstruction, but says his team won't miss his leadership. We've got some leaders there - Michael Crocker, Luke Stuart and Craig Wing who definitely can guide that team to a finals berth. Problems for the table-topping Dragons - Matt Cooper's heel injury has reduced him to being a spectator at training early in the week. It's just annoying at the moment. It's just pretty sore every time I run, so I just gotta take it easy. Justin Poore may be sidelined for three games for this tackle

and Matt Prior and Beau Scott face a week for their dangerous throw. Danny Weidler, Nine News. As we reported earlier, Australia is celebrating a crushing fourth Test win against England and there should be plenty of fireworks in the decider at The Oval. In the lead-up to the Aussies' win, former Test opener Justin Langer provided the team with a dossier on the weaknesses of the English players, saying they lacked self-belief.

He must have helped Australia went on to win by an innings and 80 runs and after a woeful tour, Johnson picked up 5/69 in the second innings. Australia needs only a draw in the fifth Test to retain the Ashes. A scare for Australia's winter Olympic medal hopeful Jenny Owens. who had a nasty tumble during a giant slalom run at the Australian Alpine Championships in Thredbo.

Owens was dazed but thankfully, not seriously hurt and as the fall happened at the final gate, she still finished in the race. Tiger Woods just keeps winning, but this time he had some help from Ireland's Padraig Harrington. Woods won the Bridgestone Invitational by four shots, Harrington was leading until a triple-bogey at the 16th. Robert Allenby was Australia's best, tying for second. While the 16th was Harrington's downfall, Woods homed in on the flag to set up another birdie opportunity. COMMENTATOR: That is unbelievable! Harrington could feel his chances sinking after he chipped out of the rough and into the water. Woods stayed calm, following up last week's win at the Buick with another PGA title.

A cool bite for Sydney this morning, 2-4 below the average for most suburbs. A lot of high cloud, so we only hit a top of 16 in the city and Cronulla. We have a low in the south-east, which is responsible for patchy rain and storms. In terms of NSW, the southern inland will pick up the heaviest. And if you're under a storm, potentially 5mm-10mm of rain. Capitals, Melbourne and Hobart expecting rain. Possible storms in Canberra. Sydney, a few showers in the afternoon and a couple of storms, especially on or just off the coast.

So the city tomorrow, 18. Then you are going to love the next few days, if you're a fan of warmer weather. Low 20s right through to Monday. Westerly winds, cool nights. Western Suburbs, your nights will be colder. During the day, low 20s, apart from tomorrow - pack a brollie.
