On the table, But the first project, to Port Botany. a tunnel from the M4 motorway Get trucks off residential streets, and the M4 East is the first one, the key project, the key priority. Both carriageways could be reserved for trucks only, with a higher toll the likely outcome. But truckies want the M4 tunnel open to all traffic to help spread the cost. Now, if the toll's too high, then industry won't use the tunnel. It's as simple as that. With truck numbers on Sydney's roads doubling every year, 2-lane tunnels may not be enough. We need a bold plan here that will service the industry for a number of years into the future, 20 or 30 years at least. It may be the Government's self-professed top priority, but the tunnels remain a pipe dream, with no routes or even a date A discussion paper on the preferred route will be released later this year. The people that are in the queues are sick of it. We need some action and we need it to happen now. But the Greens say the tunnels and their potential health effects aren't welcome.

The pre-paid buses will be graded on seating arrangements, capacity and environmental features any orders. before the Government places

It'll also consult the manufacturers on improving our bus network. With traffic chaos looming when Epping Road is reduced from three lanes to one in each direction from January next year, the State Government is urgently upgrading its bus services, and the new super bus could usher in a whole new look. I wouldn't be surprised to see double-decker buses on our road network over the next 5-10 years, but that could be through the private bus network. Tim Potter, Ten News. Peter Costello's credibility is on the line tonight as a new row errupts over his leadership ambitions.

Mr Costello is at odds with top journalists

who claim he told them he would destroy John Howard. Early-morning damage control for the Treasurer after explosive remarks allegedly made at this Canberra restaurant two years ago became public. A lot of very interesting things were said. The dinner was with three senior journalists. We all still have notes of that discussion. Here's mine. The notes recall the Treasurer saying to John Howard by April '06 he would launch a challenge from the back bench. and destroy his leadership Mr Costello denied saying that.

Regardless of what you think about George Bush, staging a play which demonises the man at the time when he's in town for the APEC meeting is, frankly, rude. It teaches a lack of respect. Federal Education Minister Julie Bishop says the event is being hijacked by political activists, but organisers claim controversial topics are the norm for the 28-year-old event. We're not into censoring. Freedom of expression is what we support. If the school signs off on the issue we'll respect that.

Claims of a secret Cabinet deal to sell uranium to an emerging nuclear power - Australia will reportedly begin shipments to India in a move critics have branded dangerous and irresponsible. It's a nuclear power in need of uranium Australia has steadfastly refused to sell, but now reports a 2-hour meeting

of Cabinet's National Security Committee has given the deal the green light as long as our uranium isn't used in weapons. We could only sell, in a policy sense,

uranium to several nuclear power stations in India that were subjected to an inspections regime. Of concern, India's refusal to sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, Australia's secret plan drawing an atomic response from Opposition parties. This is a significant breach

from the consensus of Australian governments in the past and I believe sends a bad message to the international community. We could have forced India into the non-proliferation treaty and we chose not to. But the proposed deal would see Australia set strict conditions on the use of the nuclear material, including requirements Australian inspectors are allowed to check it's only used for peaceful purposes. That's all a farce - the Indians themselves have said that will free us up to put the other uranium we've got into our nuclear weapons system. The United States paved the way with its nuclear cooperation agreement with India. Pakistan also wants to buy Australian uranium for power generation, but mindful of nuclear tensions between the two countries, Alexander Downer has ruled out a similar arrangement, citing the country's poor nuclear record. It is a special one-off case, but it does raise questions about who is Australia willing to sell uranium to.

I was actually quite shocked myself. This wasn't even a direction I was looking to move in but we have to do something. We can't just sit around and do nothing, so if there's an option there to make you safer, then why not take it? Parents are paying up to $300 to stab-proof a blazer. 11 teenagers have been killed in knife attacks in London this year. A robber in the United States has come unstuck trying to hide his identity with duct tape. His bizarre disguise giving his victims a good laugh. A stocking or balaclava is the usual disguise of choice for the would-be robber.

Not so in Kentucky, where a man thought duct tape would be a better, although rather sticky way to conceal his identity. He probably had every opportunity to put a brown paper poke over his head and poke holes in it, or a plastic bag. But duct tape? It's just unbelievable. People don't think this really happened. The 'duct tape bandit' was chased out of the store with a bat, another worker catching him and holding him until police arrived. Removing the duct tape no doubt a painful experience, although the man arrested for the crime, Kasey Kazee, has appeared on local television to deny any involvement.

Look at me. Do I look like the duct tape bandit, baby? I'm not no duct tape bandit, you hear me? Live, one-on-one, Ashland, Kentucky, you know this is not me. Now, look, do the math, do the homework, man. Police say the suspect only managed to get out of the shop with small change, most of which he dropped in the carpark.

Telstra's $3 million program taps into seniors' own circles to encourage them into cyber-space. As a one-time telegram boy and telegrapher, Brian O'Shaughnessy is a master in morse code. Now at 85, he's moved to embrace the computer age. I stick to probably the basic things.

I do all my airline bookings, hotel bookings, football tipping. But new research has shown many older Australians feel uneasy about how to use new technology, like the Internet and mobile phones, prompting Telstra to launch a $3 million program providing grants to community groups, like bowls clubs, to help educate senior Australians. To build education materials and to run seminars with their members to learn about technology at their own pace amongst their own peers. Wales? Wales - a-l-e-s. teaching others in their age group is seen as the key. We may actually start out dog paddling but we soon surf with the best of 'em out there on that net.

And denials today from Federal Treasurer Peter Costello that he made damaging but unreported comments to journalists over dinner in Canberra two years ago. The journalists insist Mr Costello vowed to destroy Prime Minister Howard, claiming he couldn't win the next election. Ten's political editor Paul Bongiorno joins us now. Peter Costello disputes the three journalists' verison of that dinner - can we believe him?

None of the things the journalists

say Mr Costello told him came to

pass. The other thing in his favour

is the journalists got the date

wrong. He says it was three months

later than they claim. Indeed

journalists favour is the fact they

had notes that they say they ran by

Claims tonight a $20 million Sydney development has been left a ghost town because of years of political game playing. Desperate owners say the project could be saved with the stroke of a pen. In one of Sydney's sought-after suburbs is Wakefield Business Park - a white elephant. 30 of the 41 industrial units have been empty for almost four years - locals insist it's Frank Sartor's fault because he refuses to step in and re-zone. They sit in their ivory towers in the city and don't know what's out here. You just can't look at a submission and three weeks later, send back a letter saying, "No, no, no, no." has one of the few businesses still standing. It is a little disheartening, I've been in the business 30 years and I'm finding it very tough due to circumstances beyond our control. Lack of customers and rising interest rates turning this into Sydney's industrial ghost town. The Planning Minister's office denies he had anything to do with it - his critics insist the neglect is purely political. They can't ignore the plight of these people any longer just because it's in a Liberal and affluent area.

Two months ago, a plan to reinvigorate the $20 million site was devised by business groups and local politicians with a view to attracting tenants.

It was rejected. We did have some concerns about the proposed re-zoning. One of those concerns is it could undermine nearby centres. It's a dire situation perhaps best illustrated right here with the 14 surrounding units all empty. It didn't take long for the local cafe to shut its doors.

Just a small increase in waist size can increase the risk, even if overall body weight is low. a weight issue - A potbelly doesn't just signal it's now also the best indicator of future heart disease. That's according to new research from the US recommending rather than scales, a tape measure is the best way to find out if you're at risk of the disease. It's not just how much we weigh, it's the shape that we accumulate our fat that's important. The study concluded people who add centimetres to their waistline can triple the rate at which dangerous deposits build up in arteries around their heart, known as atherosclerosis. A higher waist-to-hip ratio is associated with a greater probability of atherosclerosis. And atherosclerosis can eventually be fatal. It would produce the wrong type and the wrong amount of chemical messages around the body, of type 2 diabetes which would lead to increased risk or coronary heart disease.

When scientists compared body shape with early signs of heart disease, they found a strong link to the waist-to-hip ratio. To calculate your waist-to-hip ratio, first measure the midpoint of your waist around your navel, then compare that to the widest point of your hips, around your bottom. For men, a healthy ratio is less than 0.95.

For women, it's 0.85. So, put simply, your waist should be less than your hips, meaning how much you weigh is irrelevant. Even those considered normal weight could be at risk. Doctors reminding there's no shortcut to a flatter stomach. It comes down to exercise and healthy eating. Catherine Kennedy, Ten News. A new firefighting weapon has been put through its paces on Sydney Harbour. The $300,000 vessel can travel at twice the speed of previous emergency boats and shoot water from up to 40m away.

In what is being perceived as a contract squeeze, the Knights are refusing to guarantee him the one extra game he needs to automatically activate a new deal. So he's looking for a new club tonight. Flanked by Players Association boss Matt Rodwell, the tough forward met club bosses this morning after being dropped for Sunday's wooden spoon battle against Penrith. With three rounds remaining, Reynoldson has played 14 of the required 15 matches needed for a contract renewal. But, in an unprecedented move, the Knights board approved his omission for this weekend. In last week's loss to Manly, Reynoldson made 30 tackles in his 44 minutes on the field.
