We'll have more kanch of the Lane

Cove Tunnel collapse at the show goes on. PM Howard has disclosed a clear and current danger to Australia from terrorists. He won't say where, but insists steps are being taken to help our security forces deal with the threat. The key disturbing word in the PM's stark announcement was 'specific'. The Government has received specific intelligence The key disturbing word in the PM's stark announcement was 'specific'.

The Government has received specific intelligence and police information this week which gives cause for serious concern about a potential terrorist threat. But which threat, where and against whom?

The public, he says, can't be told. I do not intend and cannot and will not go into any of the operational details. MR SPEAKER: Call the Attorney-General. Legislation was introduced within hours of the announcement broadening a reference

to terrorist acts in existing legislation. The Opposition Leader briefed and on board. Can I say that the information that I have been given is not of a general nature. It is of a highly specific nature. The Senate will also be recalled tomorrow to rush the technical amendment through. The words "the terrorist act" will be replaced with the words "a terrorist act" so that the prosecution doesn't have to identify a particular planned attack. A minor rephrasing

that could mean the difference between guilt and acquittal for a terror suspect. Despite the specific threat, Australia's official threat level will remain at medium. Today's development follows the release of the ASIO annual report saying an attack is feasible and could occur without warning. And we are working very closely with ASIO to ensure that we reduce the opportunity for that to occur in Australia. Today's urgent legislation

is separate from the controversial anti-terror measures at the centre of negotiations with the States. After giving some ground, Mr Howard now has reason to be confident the tough new laws will proceed. Now we stand shoulder to shoulder in the fight against terrorism. Victoria will now proceed to give support to the counter-terrorism measures. Greg Turnbull, Ten News.

Yes, she's made an encore appearance for the media interrupting the mighty mare's peaceful first day of retirement. But she'll have little time to rest - the champion set to make up to $50 million at stud. It's her Cup victories we'll all remember, but those who've known the Diva more intimately

will look back at these moments with a glow. The mare was back at Lee Freedman's Mornington Peninsula property today, calm, friendly, charismatic. It had to happen and I was very lucky I got to do with her what I did. Stable foreman John White says

Diva recovered well from her record-slaying run. He'll miss her too. She's something I'll never ever forget and I'm just proud to be associated with her. Lee Freedman now revealing

he'd long planned to take yesterday's big gamble by running his charge in one more great race. I believe it was the biggest risk I ever took with a horse, to do that, and, as you said, it could have all come unravelled and we look like fools.

Now the $14 million mare will be pushed towards motherhood. If connections choose her partners successfully, and she delivers up to 12 foals, her track prize money may seem like small change.

Allowing for her to go to the best stallions, which I'm sure she will, and allowing for the progeny to be a really good type, there's no reason why it shouldn't be, maybe we might see the first $4 million or $5 million yearling.

Makybe's place in history assured, the debate is over whether she's better than Phar Lap is worthy, but will never be won or lost. She's the horse for the 21st century. It's very hard to draw her to Phar Lap because they're 75 years apart in terms of Melbourne Cup wins.

The great mare will spend the next couple of days in this paddock, and the next couple of months in another paddock just down the peninsula, and the rest of her life and ours in Australian sporting folklore. Her strapper has only one concern, and it's not for the Diva. I pity the first stallion - she's got a wicked kick in her back end.

Our water situation has taken a positive turn. But conserving water is still a priority.

Stage 1 water conservation measures are in place. How would the measures work for you if applied permanently? To have your say, call ACTEW or visit the website. The most comprehensive changes in a 100-years to the way Australians are hired, fired and paid, have finally been unveiled.

The Howard Government's workplace reforms have gone to Federal Parliament but the PM still refuses to guarantee workers will be better off. A Maori haka, the traditional war dance, was performed as the workplace revolution was beginning. The unions enlisting what they described as economic refugees from New Zealand to the cause. Inside, the debate was intense. They don't want this bill studied. They know on every page is a bomb that is gong to blow up in the face of Australian workers. There will be ample debate of this bill in this house. A rowdy session saw a record 11 Labor MPs thrown out. The PM accusing the Opposition of over-the-top hysteria. The workers of Australia are better off under this government than they have ever been. That's what aggravates the Opposition. Where, in the 687 pages of legislation, is the Government's guarantee that no individual Australian employee will be worse off as a result of these extreme and unfair measures?

My guarantee is my record! His Minister, not quite as assuring. We can't guarantee now what the situation of any individual Australian will be in four or five years time.

The Unions say the bills confirm their worst fears.

Everything we have said is fully documented now in the detail in this legislation. Employers are urging the Nationals Barnaby Joyce not to stand in the way. We call on all senators to support them and see them passed by Christmas. But Labor has no doubts the bills will pass Parliament unscathed. It's now promising not a roll back, but a demolition of the changes

It's now promising not a roll back, but a demolition of the changes if it wins Government. We will go into the next election accepting absolutely none of this. None of it! Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. A Sydney man has gone on trial for murder accused of strangled his former girlfriend and stuffing her body in a cricket bag. It's alleged he later wrote a song, with lyrics saying he'd meet his victim in eternity.

Will Matheson denied knowing what had happened to his missing former girlfriend, 18-year-old animation artist Lyndsay van Blanken, even though he was the last to see her alive. Lyndsay's body was found stuffed in a cricket bag

at a block of units at Queens Park, in November 2003, seven weeks after her mysterious disappearance.

She'd been strangled with cable ties. Today the prosecution at Matheson's murder trial

detailed how the young woman dumped Matheson and took up with an American, Brandon Lennon, who she met on the internet and decided to marry. Lyndsay's mother, Cynthia, said her daughter was in love and very happy but had confided she feared her former boyfriend. "I'm very worried about Will Matheson," she told her mother.

Matheson had allegedly sent the woman a text message saying: "I see you." The prosecution claims police discovered lyrics of a song Matheson allegedly wrote which said: Matheson was allegedly seen arguing with Lyndsay in Bondi Junction

the day she disappeared. The prosecution alleges Matheson told police in a record of interview he and Lyndsay used to meet at the unit block when they were going out together as teenagers. The hearing continues. John Hill, Ten News. A car has tumbled over a cliff in Sydney's south. A mother and four children were in the car when it ran off Henry Lawson Drive at Picnic Point this afternoon.

The car rolled 20 metres into bushland, ambulance officers saying they're all lucky not to have suffered serious injuries. The family was taken to St George Hospital. The police strikeforce investigating a series of ATM ram raids has made its first arrests. Police caught two men at the scene of this attempted ATM theft last night at Belmore, where crowbars and cutting equipment were used.

They've been charged with aggravated break and enter. The driver of a stolen silver Mercedes escaped. Police have also arrested a 30-year-old man at his Merrylands home in connection with the theft. This is not the end of Strikeforce Piccadilly, it is merely the first of what I would hope

to be a series of significant developments. Up to 25 ATMs have been attacked in the past three months. A Sydney local government figure has come up with a controversial plan

to save his constituents from bird flu. He wants all pigeons in Ashfield culled but stopping more from flying in presents a daunting challenge. If we're to believe the local council, the bustling Sydney community of Ashfield is under attack. A plague of pigeons is putting people at risk, some fearing our feathered friends could soon become killers.

People have and can die from pigeons. Last night, Ashfield Council voted on a motion to eradicate all pigeons in the municipality, the debate ruffling a few feathers. The mind boggles when I think of Asian pigeons flying through the border of Ashfield. Stop them directly at the border. But Deputy Mayor Nick Adams, who moved the motion,

is perfectly serious. It's well documented that pigeons carry a number of diseases that are transmissable to humans, some fatal, and many view pigeons as probably the most likely source of spreading the bird flu should it hit our shores. The eradication motion was lost. Instead, Council plans a massive reduction in numbers, like that achieved in London's Trafalgar Square.

Numbers have dropped from 5,000

pigeons in 2 000 to 100 in 2004.

Community opinion divided. So many

An armed burglary in Melbourne turned deadly when one of the intruders was attacked with a samurai sword. Two men cut the power before forcing their way into the house just after midnight. Armed with the sword and a gun, they tied up a woman home alone and demanded cash.

Her partner was ambushed as he arrived home but then turned on the attackers. Intruders come to your place, you try to defend yourself. I would do the same. The second offender was arrested two hours later. It's unlikely the crime victim who killed his attacker will be charged. A crucial exhibit in the Peter Falconio murder trial has been contaminated at a forensic science lab. The problem, revealed in the Supreme Court trial in Darwin, has brought into question the reliability of tests done for the case. Forensic biologist Carmen Eckhoff is so confident about the testing standards

at the police lab where she works,

she assesses other laboratories to check they're up to standard. But under cross-examination, Ms Eckhoff was forced to admit

an item at her accredited lab was contaminated by her boss's DNA. It's one of the most crucial exhibits in the murder trial - the handcuffs allegedly used on Joanne Lees. She found Bradley Murdoch's DNA on the handcuffs. She says the odds that the DNA is from another white man in the NT are 150 quadrillion to one. That's 30 million times more than the earth's population. Over three days in the witness stand,

she also said there was practically no chance the handcuffs were deliberately contaminated. Her certainty today undermined after Murdoch's lawyers pointed out her log book did not always record

who had the exhibit or what they were doing to it. At one point, a police officer took the handcuffs to SA, where they were passed on to the officer in charge of the Falconio investigation and taken to an interview with Murdoch.

The removal from the lab was never noted down. If you had your time again, would you run the investigation differently? No comment. Ms Eckhoff was also forced to admit she wasn't able to make conclusive findings from tests on the Kombi van. Positive results were only achieved by a British exert who uses a different testing technique based on lower samples of DNA. The scientific testimony is expected to last several days.

Their first stop, paying respect at Ground Zero. Both my wife and I were profoundly moved by what we saw. The couple opened a park dedicated to 67 Britons who died on September 11,

later visiting the United Nations. But journalists today focused more on Camilla's reported 40-person entourage, including three personal dressers, a hair stylist and a make-up artist. The nervous 58-year-old debutante packed nearly 50 outfits. While the stars turned out for a royal reception tonight, the public seem less enchanted. Are the royals still relevant? The vote so far:

Camilla has an uphill battle to win over Americans whose only royal interest was in Princess Diana. She'll never be able to take Diana's place. She looks like Seabiscuit. Charles and Camilla will spend the rest of the week in Washington, New Orleans and San Francisco. All the while dodging cheap shots from the US media. We're all welcoming the Prince and the Dutchess, or mistress, or whatever she is this week.

Good news for sufferers of migraines. While there's still no cure, doctors say there's no need to put up with the pain. About 2 million Australians know the pain of migraine,

and the symptoms are as varied as the sufferers. They can be from anywhere from the loss of sight in the right eye

for a day or two right up to a whole week's worth. Mainly I just put up with it. Lock myself in a dark room when I do get the pain.

Now doctors want to spread a new message - that migraine should never rule or ruin your life again.

We should be preventing them

rather than getting someone onto chronic drug use. A US survey suggests less than half of all migraine sufferers

take any form of preventative medication to head off the pain because they don't know they can. They might not want to bother their doctor - they just say they have a headache for a day. That used to be Natalie's story, but now a new drug, recently approved for use in Australia, has changed her life. You just take them and it becomes a routine thing. Every day you take the medication,

and you know that if you don't you're gonna get them worse again. Be nice to be able to take something each day and actually stop it all together. Keeping a lid on migraine is also good for the economy, with days off work and lost production estimated to cost the country about $1 billion a year. It's the impact it has on their work, running the household, those people around them. Now the message to sufferers is clear -

if you get migraines, go see your doctor.

Nathan Bracken will resume his Test career tomorrow at the Gabba. The NSW quick was given the nod ahead of Supertest hero Stuart MacGill. A tinge of green and some humid Queensland weather

meant the selectors' decision wasn't all that hard in the end. After nearly two years on the outer, Bracken is back. He's got a great record up here, Bracken, and will bowl well on that wicket, I think. There is still a little bit of moisture in the surface, with maybe a little weather around, but that is the way we have decided to go. MacGill won't carry the drinks, he's been released to play in the Blues Pura Cup match against Western Australia. All-rounder Shane Watson trained with the knowledge,

regardless of what happens over the next five days, he has time on his side. I'll certainly be saying that to the selectors, I think that is the way I think we should be going he is a terrific young cricketer and he has learned a lot, I think, about himself and about his game, over the last 8 or 10 or 12 months. The West Indies enter this series with a lot more optimism than the Jimmy Adams-led debacle four years ago. All they need now is Brian Lara to return to form. I'm not worried about Brian too much, Brian is one of those guys who will come into an honest game at any time.

It's up to him, now, if he can go a little more and turn it on if he wants to. A first Test win won't heal the Aussies' Ashes scars, but it will make them a little less painful. You know the Ashes loss is a long way behind us, and the next time we get to play is a long time ahead of us and we have to stay right in the present, now,

and make sure we are paying attention to the West Indies team. As I said, we know they are dangerous, and can be dangerous, and they are the sort of side, if they get a bit of confidence, they will play even better. Brad McEwen, Ten News. The dream season just keeps on getting better for Scott Prince. The Wests Tigers premiership captain winning his first Australian jumper for Sunday's Tri-Nations Test against Great Britain. While he's in complete control at Kangaroos training, Scott Prince is still making sure his imagination isn't playing tricks. It's certainly still a dream. I'm still coming to terms with the fact that the Wests Tigers are the Premiers. Prince beating Craig Gower and Trent Barrett to the number seven jumper, his new status as an international sure to increase his value when his contract with the Wests Tigers expires at the end of next season. Oh no, that's one aspect of the whole thing too, but the most important thing is the Test jumper and playing for Australia. I'm very honoured and proud to do so. Coach Wayne Bennett has told Prince not to change a thing, to imagine he's still guiding the Tigers around the park. He's very skilful. They played some wonderful football, the Tigers, and he was the orchestra leader of all that. There's been two other changes to the squad - Nathan Hindmarsh and Willie Mason added to a 5-man bench. Hindmarsh and reserve prop Jason Ryles will need fitness checks.

The Wallabies' blooding new players has resulted in Australia 'A' thrashing the French Barbarians 42-12. The young talent were keen to impress, ahead of this weekend's first Test against France. The European tour opener produced this freakish early contender for the try of the tour after the Aussies absorbed the early pressure from the big barbarian forwards. Hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau handled twice to score as the tourists ran in 5 tries to 2. That group of players have got some potential to go further in the game. How far further will, the next 12 months will decide How far further will, the next 12 months will decide for a lot of the players. Fullback Cameron Shepherd scoring a personal tally of 17 points. In a boost for the Socceroos Harry Kewell has shown a touch of class in Liverpool's Champions League victory over Anderlecht. The defending champions downing the Belgian team 3-0. Spanish connection of Morientes and Garcia with the first two goals for Liverpool before Kewell became the creator and provider for the home side's third.

CROWD CHEERS Socceroos boss Guus Hiddinck enjoying success as well - his club side PSV Eindhoven downed Milan 1-0. Not one of cycling's biggest events, but Africa's Tour du Faso has had an eventful stage finish. The peleton just crossed the line to end stage six when a photographer drifted just a bit too close to the action.

He wasn't the only one caught up in the mess -

several riders hit the tarmac in a tangle of bikes, wheels, sandals and spectators. Thankfully, no major injuries. Aussie Andrew Bogut has made an outstanding NBA debut. He helped the Milwaulkee Bucks to an upset 117-108 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. The 2m tall Bogut defied early pressure from critics

who claim the number one draft pick might not become a long-term star. His game stats of 13 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocked shots in the overtime win, suggests otherwise. It was a cool welcome to the NBA from established stars Allen Iverson and Chris Webber. But it didn't take long for Andrew Bogut to start earning some respect. COMMENTATOR: Bogut able to score his first NBA basket.

The young Melburnian doing the job at both ends of the court. Webber blocked by Bogut. A solid contribution from the debutant keeping the Bucks within striking distance at the long break

and the half-time reviews positive. Andrew Bogut's first half of NBA basketball has resulted in some decent numbers. An assist, a block,

his first basket at 5:55 in the first quarter. But it was after Michael Redd's buzzer-beating 3-pointer that sent the game to overtime that Bogut really shone, scoring critical points... Bogut! ..and pulling down big rebounds as the Bucks broke a 5-game losing streak against the 76ers. This has been fun to watch.

about that. What's the inspiration?

something creative in it, I

It runs until November 30. To learn
