Australia has recorded its best The jobless rate now stands at 4.3%, the Prime Minister dismissing fears in interest rates. that will trigger another hike

is that we are getting to the point The proud boast of the Prime Minister

where school leavers can find the jobs they want. Teenage unemployment

the unemployment rate falling to 4.2%, thanks to the creation of 13,000 new jobs. We've had 430,000 jobs created since the new industrial relations laws were introduced in March 2006. WorkChoices didn't cause the economic growth. It didn't cause the employment growth. Our strong economy, and particularly the resources boom, is driving jobs. The resource-rich States of Queensland and WA lead the way, with rates under 4%. More people in jobs in the past has led to more spending power, but Mr Howard dismisses any link now to these results and another interest rate rise.

It's not terrible for interest rates. What puts pressure on interest rates is significant rises in inflation. He says his workplace reforms are helping to keep the lid on inflation. Economists say higher immigration is also helping to meet the demand for workers. The real test of these views will come early next month when the Reserve Bank meets. The Prime Minister is gambling on rates being kept on hold for whenever he announces the election. The campaign will be in full swing by then. He has just three weekends left to call a poll by early December. Labor says he should do it now and save taxpayers the expense of recalling Parliament next week.

After two years of fighting, Jeff Fenech has finally admitted to stealing two watches from a Gold Coast jeweller. The former boxing champ says it was a mistake, and walked away with a $750 fine. It was the final round in Jeff Fenech's 2-year legal fight and the 3-time world champion threw in the towel, admitting he was a thief,

stealing two watches from a luxury Gold Coast boutique. People don't always look at you the way they should,

but like I said, I've made a mistake and I've hopefully paid for it. Fenech admitted he moved the designer watches,

worth over $200,

so that his friend Francis Grech could steal them. Fenech also acted as a shield standing beside Grech and using his shirt to hide the crime. The thieves were caught on security vision

and police found the watches in hotel rooms of the Fenech family. His accomplice, Grech, admitted then that he took the watches but not Fenech.

Today, the Marrickville Mauler was lost for words as to why he did it.

Why didn't you stand up and say it straight off the bat like Gretch did? Yeah, I just... Just reasons of my own, like I said. Despite Fenech's legal team arguing that he was a great Australian who ran a gym for disadvantaged children,

they admitted that he had been foolish and had stolen the watches. Fenech's lawyer argued that the boxer, who handed out plenty of punichment in the ring, had copped enough punishment in the media. for me, like I said, and my family.

The policeman said: I wasn't prepared to let that vehicle go as the pursuit began he quickly weighed up the need to stop the stolen vehicle against the risks facing the public by continuing the chase. He said the there was no reason to terminate the chase. There were no other vehicles or pedestrians in the vicinity and the road was dry. It's at this point, I believe, the vehicle clipped the median strip, hits the gutter and hits the tree here which is just past Hickory Place. The fatal crash reported on police radio.

While security vision shows the first suspect fleeing the scene, the second man is struck down by a large explosion, his body engulfed in flames. Serious concerns are held for his safety. From that footage they've told us that those burns would have been extensive, and if he doesn't receive help in the next 48 hours, he may die.

Hospitals across the country are on alert for patients presenting with serious burns.

Pet owners are furious and say the council's gone mad. The relaxed, peaceful atmosphere down at Bronte beach has gone to the dogs. DOG YAPS Owners venting their anger at Waverley Council's new no-dog zone. It covers one end of the promenade, the rock pool. and the beach and grass in front of the change rooms. From here, I can watch the kids in the bogey hole, I think it's a disgrace to our beach. I think as long as people bring dogs on their leads they should be fine. And it's dividing the beachside community. There's a lot of little kids out that way and I suppose little kids do get scared of some dogs. The council says owners tying up their dogs while they go for a swim is a major health and safety concern. The owners, of course, don't see this, because they're in the pool, but the dogs get really anxious, they're alone they then attack people who come near them. Some big dogs there have had a go at young kids, but I don't agree with it. Owners crossing the line face a hefty fine. But they aren't taking the ban lying down. The dog owners have now stepped up their campaign

by organising a day of protest in an attempt to reclaim the dog zone. We do expect things to change and we will not be intimidated anymore. And the dogs wont be rolling over on this one.

Luckily that's when off-duty emergency doctor Thomas Koromo was passing by. I saw cars parked, I saw people standing outside. At first I thought maybe someone was hit. and his heart stopped. Xavier wasn't breathing As Dr Koromo started CPR, in a strange twist of fate, Elizabeth, a nurse from his hospital, was driving past and stopped to help, performing the life-saving assistance out on the street. I didn't even know his name, so I just kept saying to him,

"Come on little man - you've got to breath." Xavier was rushed to Canberra Hospital, then airlifted to Sydney.

Brad Hodson, Ten News. A 14-year-old boy has gone berserk in another school shooting revenge attack in the US. The teenager opening fire with two guns, injuring teachers and students, before killing himself. Terrified students say they fled for their lives when they heard the gunshots, fired by a 14-year-old classmate. Others, unable to immediately escape, huddled in cupboards and classrooms. He was just shooting at anybody who was in the hallway so everybody just ran down the hallway. The overhead speaker system at the SuccessTech Academy school

The terror came to an end when the 14-year-old boy killed himself. Police found two revolvers by his body

as well as a box of ammunition and three knives. I think he was looking at shooting people who'd been messing with him. Police believe he carefully planned the attack,

possibly angry at being suspended from school earlier this week. But he'd also threatened to blow up the school. Some of the victims may have been targeted there. It's almost six months since America's worst mass shooting at Virginia Tech,
