My first instinct was maybe a building was toppling down. Steam everywhere, smoke everywhere, concrete flying everywhere. Authorities were quick to rule out any terror link, but there were fears for public health with the possibility the plumes of smoke and steam contained toxic substances, including asbestos. If there was asbestos, the good news is that with all the water generated by the steam, was washed down. The exact cause of the blast is still being investigated, but the steam pipes used to heat buildings were laid more than 80 years ago. A similar incident in 1989 claimed the lives of three people

and was blamed on condensation within the pipes. In New York, Nicole Strahan, Ten News. The Prime Minister has tried to play down an explosive insult from his own treasurer. Peter Costello claiming in a new book John Howard is a failed economic manager who has been untruthful. John Howard is a man under siege - of his leadership the stinging appraisal coming not from Labor but from his deputy. I don't get angry. I just keep arguing my case. In an authorised biography to be released next week, Peter Costello condemns Mr Howard's performance

on interest rates and inflation when he was treasurer in the Fraser government. And he reveals he's worried Government's big spending programs. about the sustainability of the Today he refused to be drawn. as prime minister - and I would say the greatest prime minister with the possible exception of Menzies. But the Opposition pounced. If the Treasurer doesn't trust the Prime Minister when it comes to government spending, why should the Australian people? The book reveals a treasurer still bitter about the leaked 2001 "mean and tricky" memo which he believes comes Mr Howard's office. it remains a complete mystery to me To this day as to how it got into the public domain. Mr Costello also is apparently miffed invited by the Howards that he and his wife have never been to dinner at the Lodge or Kirribilli. The timing couldn't be worse for a government already struggling in the polls. Mr Costello's outburst might have been made a year ago

but its release today has his Coalition colleagues in damage control. Liberal backbencher Alby Shultz was blunt with his advice for Mr Costello. "Pull your head in." Other ministers were more circumspect. He is an outstanding Treasurer. John Howard is an outstanding Prime Minister. They make a great team.

We apologise to patients and their families and our staff for this. More than 100 people at Westmead Children's Hospital were told a back-up generator had failed. The power was off for almost two hours. A lot of people have been distressed in there tonight. Where's the accountability of this government that they can't fire a generator for the major hospital. Today the power was back on. The Premier described the incident as minor. The Westmead interruption was a temporary one and it had a minimal or no impact on patients.

A franchisee tried to force staff to find their own replacements for sick or holiday leave or lose their jobs. This bakery is the latest industrial relations battleground.

The owner of the Bakers Delight at Kareela in Sydney's south has been slammed for trying to force young workers to sign an unfair workplace agreement. Their jobs would be on the line if they called in sick or went on holidays without finding a replacement. Fancy putting that kind of pressure on a young worker that if they're sick or they're going away with their family, they get the sack. The staff memo read: Bakers Delight head office has been embarrassed by the whole episode and very quick to distance itself from happened here.

The shooter turned the gun on himself after a 3-hour stand-off in suburban Brisbane. for the two constables - serve a warrant and return to the station. In his first week on the job and on his first night shift, It devastates us. This is just horrific. With his partner, John Edwards, the constable had gone to the Keperra home He'd missed reporting in to police eight times. As he knocked on the back door, with no warning, he was shot in the chest. He yelled a warning to his partner, then fell to the ground. Negotiators tried to talk the gunman out of his house - he let two women and two children go.

Claims tonight that they pose an environmental danger once they're disposed of.

The most popular product absolving our green guilt - energy-saving compact fluorescent lamps or CFLs. Just can't get enough, basically.

Even suppliers, we are completely out of stocks. People love them. you were saving the planet... But just when you thought The real concern is what's in these energy savers. And that's mercury.

A single globe can contain up to 25mg of the toxic pollutant. Multiply that figure by the millions of CFLs being sold across Australia and suddenly there's a new environmental problem. It's all going to landfill. That's a huge amount of mercury that could end up in our groundwater. That's not good for the environment and it's not good for human health either. that recycles mercury, processing 1% of the nation's discarded fluorescent tubes and HID lamps. Mercury is a toxic metal. I think it's rated by the EPA as the second most toxic after radioactive substances. Green groups welcomed the Federal Government's push with CFL's by 2010. They say the mercury problems can be avoided if mandatory recycling is imposed as soon as possible. We need to see some easy-to-participate-in scheme Because CFLs contain mercury, they have to be handled carefully if broken in the home. Retailers advise against vacuuming,

saying that will spread the particles, instead suggesting ventilation, sweeping the area, then wiping it with a damp cloth. But in pieces, or intact, environmentalists warn, think twice before throwing green globes away. Danielle Isdale, Ten News. Kevin Rudd's latest childcare plan has been slammed as a childish stunt. The Labor leader wants to tackle the childcare crisis with a new office of work and family. It would publish the costs and availability of child care online

as well as examine new tax incentives for business. We want to examine if we can do this more broadly for workplace-sponsored childcare out there in adjacent areas to workplaces as that would benefit smaller employers. But the Government says its already doing much of what Labor is promising. Let the good times roll - next, Australia's love affair with new technology continues to grow.

Without warning police swoop on their targets - Middle Eastern gang members who have been stealing cars for spare parts or rebirthing vehicles.

We've seized about 20 cars and about two full containers of various parts. At this home in Berala to fill a container. police uncovered enough spare parts These pieces would have ended up in panelbeaters and wrecking yards. Police allege the gang stole around three cars everyday in Sydney. This Honda had only been reported missing this morning. These people are the actual thieves that steal these cars and also in their spare time they'll rebirth cars. But today's discovery is just the tip of a nationwide rebirthing and spare parts market. These gangs aren't after the luxury motor vehicles. They're really after everyday cars such as hatchbacks and four-wheel drives. It's these cars' mechanics that are easily sold as cheap spare parts on the legal market. Five men were arrested during this morning's raids. Three have so far been charged. James Boyce, Ten News. Retailers are cashing in on our love affair with new technology. Spending on electronics

has boosted the bottom lines for our biggest retailers and they're expecting more to come. It's apparently a plasma-led boom and, for retailers like Harvey Norman, it's the secret of a highly successful sales year. Our sales of plasma might be, on certain models, up 40% on last year. And the reason, he says, is simple - technology's getting cheaper and consumers are benefiting. You could buy a plasma out there for $1,500, $2,500, $3,000.

It was 10 times that price five, six, seven years ago. 10 times that price! to super slim screens. But it's not limited Consumer electronics in general - notebook computers - iPods, satellite navigation, sales 16.5% in the last year have all lifted Harvey Norman's for other major retailers. and it's a similar story for the latest gadgets - wealth.

It seems we're doing better The latest figures out just today in Australia show that average wealth in the last five years alone. has doubled it's ever been - topping $40 billion. Debt is also higher than But Gerry Harvey's not worried. Sure you've got some people who are struggling. But you got a lot of people they've never had it so good. that are, you know, It's never been this good. Analysts agree. This could go right through 2007 and into 2008. People are feeling secure about their jobs. They're feeling wealthy and inflation's under control.

And that's music to Gerry Harvey's ears. Most people still haven't got a plasma. If they have got one, they want another, or an LCD for the other room. Selling 30% of flat screens in Australia, might last a while too.

For 2.5 hours this stag led authorities on a wild deer chase across the Gold Coast. I just saw the deer running up the beach. I just couldn't believe it.
