Grant Philipp's now well-known unit has been listed on the Internet, inviting buyers to run the risk and make an offer up to $1.2 million.

Selling points include being recently renovated, then remodelled again by specialist tunnel builders incorporating views to China and back. The Opposition, though, says the matter of compensation is a serious one. I think the important point needs to be made that it be a generous market value including all the associated costs that residents will incur - transaction costs, legal costs, stamp duty for the new property. The tunnel company says it's now moving ahead to repair the front of this building.

As for the units it does eventually buy, well, it says will simply own them and lease them out.

The next phase of John Howard's workplace revolution

is about to be unveiled. Almost 6 million booklets have been stockpiled,

but $500,000 have had to be destroyed with the taxpayer footing the bill. The next stage of the Government's big sell of its workplace changes is in warehouses like this one. Almost 6 million booklets -

one for every four Australians, man, woman and child. John Howard denies it's a waste of taxpayers' money. It merely explains the benefits of a long-needed, meritorious policy. Labor has new information on the pulping not of 60,000 pamphlets, but of 500,000 because the spin doctors wanted to insert the word 'fairer' in the title. But the bill repeals the requirement of fair minimum standards in setting wages. Isn't this waste of $152,000, just pulp fiction? In answer to the second part of the question - no. As unionists protested outside about lower pay and conditions putting extra pressure on truckies and shift workers, the PM says the new wage-setting laws will take into account the economy and fairness to the unemployed. The Government plans for the massive bill to be voted on by Wednesday.

Labor says it's to avoid scrutiny and to fit in to the PM's diary.

It certainly is to meet his Christmas deadline for the bill to become law. At least there was some good humour in the debate today, thanks to a slip up from the Speaker. Mr Speaker, the member for Lillee is a swan who metamorphoses into a rooster early in the morning. The Treasurer should be aware that turkeys mate they think of swans SPEAKER: The Member for Lillee, resume your seat. Tim Webster has a look ahead to sport, and Shane Watson's Test career is on hold? Yes, the Test all-rounder is out of action for two months with a dislocated shoulder. Watson, who injured his shoulder during yesterday's big win over the Windies, will undergo shoulder surgery tomorrow. We'll hear from Shane in sport. And what a talent. But this 7-year-old Aussie soccer whiz kid's been forced to go back overseas to develop his talents. His story a little later in sport. And Souths' George Piggins prepared to step down if it can help his beloved Rabbitohs. Still to come - the firebomb attack on a Sydney dentist's house and surgery.

Police are interviewing a former patient of a Fairfield dental surgery that was firebombed overnight. It was hit with a Molotov cocktail around 3:00 this morning. Just minutes earlier, the dentist's home was firebombed as well.

Police believe the crude explosive was made from a firecracker and a bottle of petrol. Each element by itself is dangerous enough but you combine the two and you've got a real explosive mix and potential for great harm to people.

Police stopped a Porsche near the scene and seized firecrackers and bottles of petrol. The 49-year-old driver is assisting police with their enquiries. Outrage tonight from women whose privacy has been violated by a CityRail security camera. It was allegedly used to zoom in and spy on them at Macarthur station in Sydney's south-west. The images aren't of terrorists or crime suspects. Instead they're pictures of young women waiting for the train

at a suburban railway station. The rail worker zooming and panning onto various parts of their bodies. The footage was taken by security cameras at Macarthur station at Campbelltown, used by large numbers of young women attending the nearby University of Western Sydney. I'm just so shocked. Something needs to be done, that is outrageous. There is a lot of women on these stations. That is just crazy. It's pretty bad how the cameras are meant to be there for our safety and not to perv on us. A male station assistant is under investigation for allegedly spending almost an hour on the security cameras ogling at women. It's disgusting. We're students at the university and we should have full privacy on the station while we're waiting for the train. The CityRail inquiry is seeking to establish the facts of the case and why middle management failed to take appropriate action. I'm disappointed, frankly, at the immature behaviour of the alleged person involved in this particular incident. And in a bizarre twist, CityRail is also investigating what it's calling the unauthorised release of these CCTV pictures to the media, claiming that invades the privacy of the young women involved. CityRail says the station assistant has denied being the culprit. John Hill, Ten News. Occupants of a home in Picton are counting their blessings they were out this morning after a car careered into their home. The driver of the car lost control on Remembrance Drive running through a fence and landing in a child's bedroom. The driver of the car, a man in his 50s, was trapped in the wreckage for some time. CareFlight flew the man to Liverpool Hospital where he was treated for back injuries Taking aspirin on a regular basis may reduce the risk of developing certain types of skin cancers. It's still early days, but Queensland researchers say so far results are encouraging. For skin cancer survivors like Jacqueline, the news couldn't be better - a promising cancer stopper, and as simple as popping a pill. So, yes, if you could prevent that, that would be fantastic. New research has scientists once again excited by aspirin and its apparent ability to block skin cancer-building enzymes. In people who are using aspirin over a long period of time, they're actually inhibiting any little early skin cancers they might have in their skin. They're inhibiting them from growing.

The research has already attracted overseas interest and coincides with the start of summer awareness campaigns. The findings about aspirin will now be subject to further sampling ahead of more extensive human trials. However, researchers say an aspirin-based skin cancer breakthrough may still be years away and should never replace proven avoidance methods like 30-plus creams, minimising sun exposure and a hat. And don't think taking handfuls of aspirin will cancer-proof you tomorrow. It'll do more harm than good. Aspirin is a drug that has known side effects. It can cause bleeding, intestinal upset and a myriad of other complications. Scientists stress none of the findings point to a cure for melanoma - our most lethal skin cancer. Tim Collits, Ten News.

Time to check on the traffic with

Vic Lorusso on the Mix traffic

helicopter. It's actually Vic who

is struggling tonight, struggling

to find something to talk about.

Spot on. It's a well deserved

break. Last week Epping Road

closed for two days and there were

delays - We've got rid of him anyway. As the 30th anniversary of the Whitlam government's dismissal approaches, the former prime minister has parted with some key historical documents. Gough Whitlam has given the University of Western Sydney a letter from the governor-general, sacking him on November 11, 1975. He's also donated his original copy of the "It's Time" campaign launch speech from 1972. He says they'll help scholars in the future. You must go to the original documents. There's no substitute for the original documents. Mr Whitlam chose the University of Western Sydney because it was established by his Labor government. Hundreds of people are still missing after America's most powerful tornado in nearly a decade. It caught many Midwestern communities off-guard. At least 20 people now confirmed dead. 15 seconds of fury and an entire town is flattened, wiped out by winds of over 300km/h. You could hear the wind - it really does roar like a train - and we decided it was time to get out of there.

After America's record year of hurricanes, an unseasonal tornado has devastated parts of the Midwest, sleeping residents unaware of the warnings as the deadly twister approached in the dead of night. It was just a very eerie feeling when the tornado sirens went off and then the very still, quiet calm outside and then the hail and the freight train sound. It was personally very scary for me and my family. The 30km path of destruction was just a kilometre wide, which left some homes standing while their neighbours were reduced to rubble. So we got out and looked at it and it was just... It was like a war zone. Residents of a local caravan park didn't stand a chance, the storm uprooting their trailers and smashing them to pieces. Among the dead, a young family including an expectant mother, her husband and their 4-year-old boy. A state of emergency has been declared in both Indiana and Kentucky while the National Guard is called in to help clean up and search for survivors. Liz O'Gorman, Ten News. There's a new danger for the cruise passengers who've survived a pirate attack off Africa. There's an unexploded missile embedded in the ship. Officials say it's been delayed from docking in the Seychelle Islands until the missile has been disarmed. Yesterday, rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns were fired at the cruiser.

The unrest started after the death of two teens. Protesters claiming they are bored and angry over the lack of opportunities in the country. An Australian cowboy has been named one of the greatest bull riders in history. Troy Dunn taking out the honour

as he and three fellow countrymen battled it out at the world championships in Las Vegas. It was show time in the bullring. But nothing seemed to go to plan for the four Australians. One after the other they came off. Queenslander and former world champion, Troy Dunn, didn't even get a start,

he was forced to cancel the last ride of his 11-year career after breaking a rib the night before. COMMENTATOR: Troy is walking out. That is good news. I've been KO'd, hung up and jumped on and now a broken rib, so it's not a moment too soon. Instead of taking the winner's podium,

the 38-year-old cowboy found himself centre stage becoming the first Australian to be awarded the world bull riding Ring of Honour. The Aussie champion isn't turning his back on bull riding, he plans to bring the world championship series

to Australia next year. The veteran rider determined to groom more up-and-coming stars such as 20-year-old Jared Farley of New South Wales, who after just two years is ranked in the top 45 in the world.

The American guys look up to him so much and a lot of them think he's the best that's ever been. It's going to be sad to see him go, but he's getting too old so it's time to go away. The Americans have dubbed Brendon Clark of New South Wales the next Australian sensation, but it's Rockhampton's Greg Potter who has finished highest in the rankings, ending the season as number eight in the world.

The top stories we're following this news hour - an inquest has heard how doctors overlooked a woman who'd suffered a heart attack. 34-year-old Sharon Brophy was found dead in a hospital toilet, before medical staff noticed a problem with her test results. Surgeons have re-attached the leg of a Melbourne toddler after his mother allegedly attacked him with an axe. The 21-year-old woman is undergoing psychiatric assessment. And Broken Hill is cleaning up after a savage storm ripped through the town. The mini tornado destroyed dozens of homes but remarkably no-one was injured. Single parents are expected to get a 2-year reprieve under changes to the Government's tough welfare-to-work package. They'll be able to receive the parenting payment until their youngest child turns 8, instead of 6, before being forced to find work. But the Opposition says that won't fix the problem. They are going to cut the incomes of some of the most vulnerable people in our community without any substantial outcome in terms of movement from welfare to work. The concessions are expected to be introduced next week. Do you know who's using your Internet? Wireless broadband can be easy to hack, leaving you to pick up the bill. Jason Edelstein is about to go 'war driving'. It's the latest techno-fad and it can cost households and businesses dearly. Armed with just a laptop and the right software, Mr Edelstein finds hundreds of unsecured wireless Internet access points. And if he were a hacker rather than an Internet security expert

he could be inside those systems causing all sorts of damage. They could actually connect to their network and potentially attack other systems that are plugged into their network or even just use their Internet connection. They could potentially be downloading illegal software, music and stuff like that which could actually open you up to legal repercussions. War driving is taking off around the world.

There are dozens of websites dedicated to the practice,

complete with instructions, free downloadable software, even maps of unsecured access points. Confidential business information can be hacked... Here's a leading Sydney law firm, you can see that on the screen here. ..and home users can end up with bills running into the hundreds of dollars. If your network is compromised and someone is using up your data capacity, you end up wearing the bill. Hackers could read private emails, send viruses, even connect to your printers. Mr Edelstein offers these basic tips to protect your home Internet: For more advice visit the Internet Industry Association Website or senseofsecurity.com.au Steve Wilson, Ten News.

Now it's come to Australia and local lasses have been queuing up to be a part of it. They might be getting model treatment but these women aren't models. They're ordinary, everyday women who entered a competition to become a curvy calender girl. The key thing is we're not offering a huge prize, it's just they wanted to show they feel good about themselves.

Dove has been running a world-wide campaign using women of all shapes and sizes to advertise their products.

5,000 women entered the Australian contest. And these ones have made it in to the calendar. So is it intimidating to know you're going to be in a calendar? No way. Miss October, that's me. 38-year-old mum-to-be Indira McDonald was thrilled to make the cut. I think a long time pregnant tummies have been seen and not heard, keep them covered up. But I think it's nice to get it out there. Look at these curves. Laura Crompton just had to bring her 5-month-old baby Ava along to the shoot - the youngest model there, clearly the biggest hit.

A bold declaration from Souths' boss George Piggins on restructuring the club. Also, what led up to some pit lane pandemonium. And why this 7-year-old super Aussie junior has to go overseas to develop his talents.

'AMAZING' BY ALEX LLOYD PLAYS Johnny, I thought I told you not to leave your trike in the driveway. MAN: The new Ford Territory Ghia comes with a reverse camera New Ford Territory. The possibilities are amazing.

This program is captioned live. Shane Watson will miss the rest of the Australian summer after scans in Melbourne today confirmed he badly dislocated his shoulder at the Gabba yesterday. The all-rounder will have surgery tomorrow. Having suffered stress fractures in his back earlier in his career

the rehabilitation process is one Shane Watson knows well. Arthroscopic surgery tomorrow will be used to assess and then repair the damage suffered while fielding at the 'Gabba - the diagnosis no surprise, but no less a disappointment. Obviously getting my second Test in a row and then to do this I suppose is disappointing but just gotta move forward. The all-rounder's absence from the Australian summer leaves selectors with a major headache, at a time the 24-year-old was to be blooded for an extended period of time. I really felt like I was getting some good momentum, starting to feel part of international cricket at Test level, bowled probably the best over for Australia yesterday and then it all sort of comes tumbling down. The leg spin combination of Stuart MacGill and Shane Warne may be reunited on an expected flat Hobart pitch for next week's second Test, while Watson's Bulls team-mate Andrew Symonds made his case for selection with a command performance with the bat against SA yesterday, but the vice-captain was non-committal on team structure. I don't want to, sort of, necessarily, sit here and push his case anymore than anyone else. I think he's definitely a viable option and he's obviously in good form too so... ..but he's one of a few guys. For the outgoing all-rounder

a vow to return to continue his development, especially with the ball. It'll give me a bit of time to continue to really develop my bowling and work on really moving the ball as well. Anthony Howard, Ten News. New South Wales are doing their best to bat WA out of the Pura Cup match at the WACA in Perth. Midway through day two, Aaron O'Brien has scored his maiden century in just his seventh first-class match. All-rounder Dominic Thornely fell just short of another ton against the Warriors. The Blues closed their first innings at 7/475 midway through day two. Souths Leagues club boss George Piggins is willing to step aside to help Peter Holmes a Court's plan of restructuring the Rabbitohs.

Piggins' offer, though, depends on the club remaining in Redfern. Piggins says

They'll have the period of time.

be happy to be a spectator. World MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi has failed to equal Mick Doohan's record of 12 wins in a season. But did manage a place on the podium at the season-ending Spanish Grand Prix. A warning - our package also contains the Champ Cars which can be seen later tonight on Ten. Valentino Rossi started a distant 15th on the grid but he was destined for a much better finish than this. COMMENTATOR: Someone's down in the background, there, one of the Ducatis. Italian Roberto Rolfo out of the race not far past the first corner while pole sitter Sete Gibernau made a tidier exit, no thanks to a blown engine. Gibernau is in trouble, Sete Gibernau is in trouble. Rossi weaving his way through the field as Honda riders Marco Melandri and Nicky Hayden fought out the win. Marco Melandri is going to win the final round of the world championship. It's a close one. Less than one tenth of a second between the pair. Rossi third, Melandri also wrapping up second in the world championship. In the Champ Cars Paul Tracy did nothing to improve his bad boy reputation. Straight across the track goes Paul Tracy

in an attempt - a successful attempt - to keep AJ Allmendinger behind him. Tracy copping a drive-through penalty, Ronnie Bremmer got a much bigger jolt. There's a big crash, massive crash. Bremmer not seriously hurt. Justin Wilson winning from Allmendinger and Tracy. The lead-up race setting the tone for the day. A crash near the finish raising the hackles of one driver. His fury leading to a pit lane punch-up. Leanne West, Ten News. Just one second has decided the closest ever New York marathon. 37,000 runners started the famous race and it turned into a fight to the death

between world record holder Paul Tergat and defending champion Hendrick Ramaala. The pair sprinting the last hundred metres after slugging it out for 42kms. The tightest finish in the 36-year history of the event took it out of both men. But the Kenyan had just enough energy to celebrate, winning his debut New York marathon in 2 hours, 9 minutes and 30 seconds. As the Socceroos prepare to meet Uruguay in their date with destiny things have never looked better for the code. But at a junior development level things don't appear to be so rosy,

so much so the family of one of our most talented youngsters is very close to moving overseas to develop their sons talent. Panos Armenakis has just turned seven and is clearly an outstanding footballing talent. How good? Well, on the strength of seeing these pictures of the young star in action, Spanish giants Barcelona extended an all-expenses-paid invitation for Panos to train at their academy. What sort of things did you do over there? Um, lots of dribbling. Lots of passing drills, and a bit of shooting. But this story isn't about how good young Panos is, it's about the dilemma his father, John, faces as he tries to ensure his son's talents are properly developed. Sadly, the message John is hearing is not good for Australian soccer. We've got the best swimmers in the world because we've got the best environment for swimmers in the world. We've got the best rugby league players. Why can't we have the best footballers? For many years, soccer legend Johnny Warren said Footsel was an essential ingredient in cultivating young players' skills, so when there was no competition available for Panos to compete in, John started his own, which now has 750 players.

As the Armenakis family contemplate a move overseas, there are others trying to prevent him from going, arguing for reform of Australia's system for training young players.

If Australia are to prevent Panos and other talented kids like him

from moving overseas, we must act fast. This is why I feel we should set up the Australian Academy of Soccer to create a pathway for talented kids such as Panos. Who do you want to play for when you grow up? For my country. Neil Cordy, Ten News. Coming up on Sports Tonight with Ryan Phelan, the latest from the South Sydney club meeting, a chat with mercurial leg spinner Stuart McGill and find out more about a row that's erupted in the A League.

Bit of extra cash here and there - who needs to know? Yeah, it's a bit naughty, but I'm smart enough not to get caught. Come on, it's no big deal. Most people do the right thing and avoid serious penalties by telling Centrelink when their circumstances change. I'd like to report some changes to my details, please.

Spellbound fans travelled from around the world to be among the first to see 'The Goblet of Fire', including singer Madonna and daughter Lourdes, who was put on the spot. Do you prefer my books or Harry Potter books? I like both of them. It is a scarier film. It's darker. It's much more the thriller than it ever has been before. We haven't pulled away from the darkness at all. It's a really scary film. Scary enough to be rated unsuitable for children under 12 without adult supervision. That's the 5:00 news. I'm Ron Wilson, goodnight. And I'm Jessica Rowe. We'll have the Late News at 10:30, goodnight. Supertext Captions by the Australian Caption Centre. www.auscap.com.au
