We need your help. have warned First, experts in the United States cold and flu medications over-the-counter to children. pose potential health risks are safe and effective, Drug companies say the medications

and accidental ingestion but acknowledge dosing errors among children. are leading causes of injury joins us now with more. General practitioner Ginni Mansberg Good morning to you.

are over-the-counter drugs? Ginni, how dangerous

We tend to think of them as being

fairly harmless, but is it

necessarily the case. Look,

generally they are and it is why

they are over the counter, they are

completely safe but with all things,

there are a couple of scopes for

problems, one, if you're diagnosis

your kidb instead of taking them to

the doctor, you might miss

something, it is pretty rare but

possible and if you don't get the

dosing, right, something that is

completely harmless and safe as

Paracetamol can become dangerous. Do

we need restrictions on the drugs or

do we need to be better informed. On

the one hand Australia does really

well, it is regulated well,

potential problems tend to be put

behind the counter, you have to ask

a pharmacist for them and it is a

good thing but there are still so

many overdoses with particularly

Paracetamol drugs, I guess we have

the United States of America of got to look at the possibility, like

changing it somewhat. How are the

overdoses happening? Surely it is

not parents think they can give

their kids a smaller dose ofen

adality version? It sounds

dangerous? Is it what is happening?

Unfortunately, some parents are

doing that, it is our responsibility

as doctors to get the right

information out to parents. Parents

don't want to hurt their kids but

what they are thinking is not the

right thing to do. It is dangerous,

you can't give a child adult

medication. Yes, we have child medication. Yes, we have child prep

preparations and if not, they are

not safe to give to kids. What can

parents do to safely administer the

med kaigs? Number one, we have got

fantastic pharmacists in Australia,

they are so well qualified and well

trained, if you're not sure ask your

formicist before you buy anything.

For all child med kaigs on the back

panel of the bottle is really

complicated and precise dosing

regime and you can't go wrong. The

difference is like 1 mill, 2 and a

half mill or 3 mill, sometimes

could be really pr hard to get it half mill or 3 mill, sometimes it

right. Yes, but those dosageerize

not the problem dosages. We all miss

a bit. Yes, that is not a problem

and to be honest the doses they put

on the medication bottles are really

conservative, stick to them and you

won't have a problem. Doctors often

go quite far over but it is when you

go over the dosage. I can never get

it on the 5 mill line. Frnl good

advice, obviously a big problem if the

the drug companyerize talking about

it and acknowledging. To the US now, dominated and the global financial crisis yesterday. the second presidential debate Most commentators think winner over his rival John McCain. Barack Obama emerged the clear knockout blow to McCain's campaign? But was he able to deliver a to Mike Amor in our US bureau. For the latest, it's over Good morning, Mike. the two leaders performed? How do you think

Kylie, I think Obama won. We were

all saying yesterday McCain needed

to win this debate, it was a

must-win event for him because he

slipped behind in the polls. It was

a town-hall style debate, meaning it slipped behind in the polls. It was

was off the cuff, meant to suit

McCain more. We thought he would

fiercely tack Obama but Barack Obama

seemed more considered, and more

presidential. McCain didn't help his

chances when he referred to him,

at " pointed at him and referred to him

at "that one" it wasn't a knockout

blow by Barack Obama but given he

has opened up a sizable lead, McCain

needed something last night and he

didn't get it, it is the point. Is

the financial crisis changing the

way Americans are going to vote?

Yes, absolutely. You will remember

we spoke at the conventions and the

polls were level pegging at that

stage, then along comes the economic

crisis and Barack Obama has opened

up a 6 to 8 point lead. Normally

when the economy goes south, voters

turn against the incumbent parties,

the Republican, John Paul Collins,

No you are not. Yes, right back.

What do the critics saying? You

know, Larry, they savaged it when

they first saw the sneak previews,

mainly in the ads but they have

turned round in recent weeks, the

prestigious newspapers says it is a

promising show of the season.

Australians so they may take a while

to warm to it, but give it a chance.

We will get a chance to see it here.

Yes, fast tracked. The city of Bathurst has been taken over by thousands of revheads ahead of Sunday's big V8 race.

Huge crowds are expected at today's official unveiling of a 4m statue of the King of the Mountain, Peter Brock. Reporter Alex Cullen is at Mount Panorama. Good morning. I'm here in pit lane at Mount Panorama for the Bathurst 1000, not until Sunday but there is so much going on in the lead-up. Today, lots and lots is on. We have the Peter Brock memorial statue being unveiled at about 9:00 this morning. Afterwards, police will launch Operation Mountaineer. That is going to be a bit of a crackdown on what's going to be happening up on the mountain. We know it gets pretty crazy up there but there are lots of police, lots of sniffer dogs

cracking down this year. Later on today at 4:00, will be up on the mountain. Team Vodafone are, of course, the defending champions here at Bathurst. They won it last year with the team of Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup. They're heading up to the mountain to say a big hello to all the fans, so that should be very, very exciting. We spoke to Dick Johnson yesterday. He's been here for a lot of years now but he just loves it year in, year out. He says every year he comes here it's just as magic as the last. This place has got something about it. the worst possible day on Sunday and you get up Monday morning and say to yourself, "Gee I wish I could do it all again." It's just got that aura about it. Yesterday was all about the fans. Drivers went out and spoke to a heap of fans down at Morse Park for the drivers' breakfast. There was Mark Skaife, there was Steven Richards, there was Garth Tander. These guys, they really, really make themselves known. They get out there, they sign autographs, they have a lot of time for the fans. We spoke to Garth Tander about just that and this is what he had to say. It's incredible, I got into town last Monday and there's been people here since last Friday. So they're coming into town, setting up camp.

And you go to the track on Tuesday and, like, all the campgrounds are nearly full already so just the atmosphere around the event and, you know, all the people that are here, it's just fantastic. This place is going to be a lot noisier a little later on today because, yes, the cars are out on the track. I absolutely can't wait because it's going to be the first practise run before we get into the business end of the weekend for the big one - the great race on Sunday. It's back to you.

Thank you, the fumes! The beer and

the petrol fumes. Sphepl it now, an

annual pilgrimage for so many people. Ahead on the show, the neighbourhood dispute about flying the Australian flag. And we're meeting the sexiest man in rugby league. But after the break,

the US singer/songwriter with a huge hit on her hands. Katy Perry is up next. Good morning, Sydney. A fine day today with a top of 21. It's currently 16 degrees.

We have organised the day for Katy Perry.

As the child of two pastors, she started out as a gospel singer but it wasn't until she turned to pop and released the hit single 'I Kissed a Girl' that Katy Perry became famous.

The song went straight to number one on the Australian ARIA charts and broke a record for staying on top for six consecutive weeks. And now Katy's touring Down Under. She performed on 'Sunrise' earlier,

and she's been kind enough to stick around to chat to us about her amazing career so far. Katy, good morning to you.

Hello! Did you have a great day

yesterday, did you do touristy

things? I went shopping. As every

girl does. As every girl does and I

think generally men will never

understand it. What did you buy.

Went to a really nice store in Surry

Hills, a kind of vintage rock Billy

store, which is really cute. A few

little dresses. Dresses and stuff

I'm excited to wear. We done?

Finished with the fashion chat

Finished with the fashion chat? Finished with the fashion chat? I

did want to pet a kangaroo, which I

might be able to because I will be in Australia for a while. What

in Australia for a while. What about

a koala. I don't want to be a stereo in Australia for a while. What about

typical tourist girl who comes from

the States to Australia and hop in

the nap sack of a kangaroo. The next

song would be I Kissed a Koala and

Liked it. Were you a good Christian

girl growing up in a strict family

or rebellious. I think I was okay. I

didn't eat a whole lot of sugar

serial. I stuck to my parents'

rules, you are born and grow up in a

family and you kind of fear your

parents and you definitely respect

parents and you definitely respect them and this is the way and this is

how it is and do it like this, of

course, it is what you grow up in.

Of course, when you leave the nest

you kind of figure out things on

your own, but generally, I was a

good kid. Maybe. They are both pastors? Right,

pastors? Right, so it is not just

religious, it is really quite

religious. You didn't even listen to

rock music, it wasn't until you were

15 or so you discovered it. How did

that happen? I remember I was

hanging out with my friend, being

girls, trying on clothes and doing

stupid stuff and she was playing DJ

if the day and she put on Killer

Queen and I was taken back and it

was like the heavens opened up and I was like, "

was like, "Queen." I never knew

someone could be so excentric and

colourful and visual with their

lyrics. Slumber parties have a lot

to answer for. You wish you were

invited, I'm sure. To that one! When

you told your parents, you said

everything was okay until you left

the nest. Was it the turned point or

were you rebellious toward the end.

They are very supportive, they got

me the singing lessons, bought my my

first guitar, they are parents, they have their

have their opinions as all parents

do, I love them and respect them,

don't try to change them anymore.

They supported your early music

because you were doing gospel? They

support it now, definitely. I got

the call, I am going to

the call, I am going to PLAYER: On

the Latin VMAs. And my dad wants to

come. Okay. Read you come. Okay. Read

come. Okay. Read they were not

supportive. It is a funny things

called gasp. You can't always

believe what you read in gossip, of

course, you would think, I was

raised in a very religious household

mire parents shun me, and I live in

a basement and eat stale bread every

other day, but it is not. I don't

disrespeck what they believe and

they understand me. If not entirely

agree with your lyric, they agree

with what you are doing. Parents and

kids have always had that thing.

Toing-and-froing. Cut it away Toing-and-froing. Cut it away and

get it the lyrics of the song, what

do they think of that proposition?

What do they think? They are not

really completely shocked about it

because it wasn't like I, you know,

it wasn't like a black and white

overnight, it has all-been me. I

wasn't rebellious but I had a big

kind of opinion and loud mouth and

been kind of obnoxious here and

there and gradually over the years I

might have pushed their envelope

enough. I was reading last year, you said it was tough, "

said it was tough, "I would write a

cheque for my rent and write, please

God please." How much have things

changed with the number one hit.

Thankfully I don't have to worry

about the rent cheques. I don't

expect any of this, I don't

expect any of this, I don't expect to be in Sydney, and people singing

along and having number ones all

along and having number ones all over the world, because I have been

in a position where I have had a a

and lost it all, had it and lost it

all so I all so

all so I think it can go as quickly

as it comes, I definitely have a

savings around. You look to Cindy

Lauper and Joan Jet and you say they

still don't care. Do you reckon in

10 years you won't care. I reckon if

you talk to me in

you talk to me in 20 years you won't

care. We got you a koala. We had it

flown in. It is sleeping, don't wake

it up. A baby. At least you can't

eat these, I heard you eat kangaroos

and you are monsters. It is awful.

Iate a kangaroo and I liked it a

lot. Nice to meet you. Katy Perry's album, 'One of the Boys', is out now. And for more information on her tour, just head to our website.

Is it like the luckiest koala in the whole world? Still to come,

the call for healthy food to be subsidised to low-income families. Plus, your votes for the hottest on-screen couple ever. And coming up, he's just been voted the sexiest man in footy. Matt Ballin is here on the couch. You're watching the Morning Show, right across Australia. You single

You single Catee? No.

He is not either, it works out well.

The Morning Show brought to you by Jetstar, the world's best low-cost airline. Now flying to more than 25 holiday destinations at home and overseas. Visit now. At some point in our lives, we've all had a run-in with a neighbour. But how's this for revenge? Take a look. (gentle music plays)

Hello, Laura love, what you doing

there then. I'm burying my gold

fish? Dear, what a shame. Still it's

only a gold fish, I suppose, isn't

it. But why digging such a big hole?

Because it is inside your (beeps)

cat. She is going to grow up and

marry that little miniature Gordon

Ramsay we had on last week. So this morning we want to hear your funny stories about run-ins with neighbours. Email the chatroom and let us know.

Ramsay we had on last week. She is cute.

Coming up later on The Morning Show - the hottest man in league, Matt Ballin's, telling us about stripping off for a charity calendar. But first, it's over to Glenn for some nifty tips on saving time. If you ask me, on the ironing front since the first electric iron appeared 100 or so years ago.

Ahead this morning, the call for health foods to be subsidised In fact, even old-fashioned irons have been around for hundreds of years but no matter which one you look at, it is still a time-consuming chore. A washing machine actually washes the clothes for you but with an iron, you still have to do the hard yards. But my friend James is back on The Morning Show because he has a breakthrough on his hands. Good morning, James. I sure have, Glenn - you're going to love this. You've got your mate Tobi. It's a steaming beauty that removes creases from your garments much faster than ironing.

How much faster? Five times faster. You've got me interested, like many blokes at home - and the girls too - because, let's face it, none of us are really fussed about ironing. Nobody likes ironing. Have a look at this - here's something that the laundromat and dry-cleaners really don't want you to know about. The Tobi steamer removes creases and wrinkles from your garments while they are hanging. It works on all fabrics, it saves you money on dry-cleaning

and it removes odours and sanitises your garments.

do that standing up or sitting down. You don't need an iron or ironing board. Most people don't even wash their curtains because they don't want to iron them but Tobi makes ironing your curtains easy and really fast. No offence, as usual on The Morning Show, James, you're not using too much elbow grease. You didn't insult me, but thanks very much. The Tobi gets the job done really quickly and easily. Here is how it works. Instead of crushing and flattening your clothing fibres with an iron, pumps up the fibres, the Tobi's professional steam power releasing the wrinkles and rejuvenating the fabrics. As the steam penetrates, it helps to break down and removes unpleasant odours,

leaving your clothes refreshed and wrinkle-free. Let me have a go at this.

Can I have a go I'll crumple this up a bit. Crush it up. You can use it on your bed linen right on the bed. Can I have a go some

It's all yours for 3 easy payments of just $49.95. Call right now and you can save money, especially on your dry-cleaning. Fantastic. I often take clothes to the dry-cleaners and this will save me money, plus petrol driving down there - You can tell everyone how much it normally costs for dry-cleaning.

Ahead this morning, the call for health foods to be subsidised for low-income families. But first, Rebecca Maddern joins us with the latest news and weather. Hello, Bec. Good morning, Kylie. Hello, Larry. The families of a Victorian couple killed in a Nepal plane crash say

the Everest trek was to be their ultimate destination. Andrew Frick McLeod and Kate Zamudio were on day one of an 18-day scenic tour when their plane crashed, bursting into flames. 12 German tourists and 4 locals also died. The Australian stock exchange opens in half an hour with investors facing another nervous day as markets react to the global bailout. Central banks combined forces to cut world interest rates

Here's Glenn with all your questions answered. We're about to show you something that not only makes cleaning around the house easy, but also enjoyable. Believe it or not. All those hard-to-reach places around the house are no longer going to be a problem, plus you'll help to improve the health of your family as you get rid of dust and other allergens. And perfect time to be doing a bit of spring cleaning around the house, Leigh. You said it.

Absolutely right. We've got the famous, the original Go Duster from Global Shop Direct with us on the program today, but before we actually get started - look, a lot of our viewers already have the Go Duster and they've seen it before. We are going to blow you away with a fabulous deal today. You can get an amazing Go Duster absolutely free. So stay tuned. Leigh, it does work like magic, doesn't it? Largely because there's a lot of science that's gone into the development of the Go Duster. That's right. There certainly has. And we're receiving hundreds of letters and emails from happy customers.

They're calling it their magic wand.

Isn't that lovely? So give us a quick demo. Start your engines because I'm always astounded at how it works. The motorised head of the Go Duster spins at 250 revs per minute. Creating a static charge on these. If you had a microscope, you'd see these tens of thousands of dusting fingers actually doing the job for you. The beauty of the Go Duster is that it conforms to just about any shape or size too. You're cleaning vases and things there. You can get in. You can get in to tight spots. You can clean around delicate items and you don't necessarily have to move anything either. Oh, not at all. It's compact, portable, motorised and completely cordless. of the static charge, the fast rotation and all these little soft fibre fingers that actually attract the dust, right? That's right. Go Duster attracts dust just like a magnet. All you have to do is press the start button and wave it where you want the dust gone. Here's one for you. What about blinds? Ahh, easy. Thanks to the rotating fingers, the Go Duster gets into all the nooks and crannies including blinds. Did you know it's also safe to use on your electronics, delicate screens, DVD players and gaming consoles as you are demonstrating. Instead of having to remove books from the shelves, Go Duster zips in and out. You are going to save so much time. Just giving The Morning Show a bit of a dust up here, Leigh. Oh, good. It's powerful, but gentle enough to use on your precious glassware and delicate items, flat-screen tellys and things. Definitely. Where you and a duster can't go, Go Duster can. You know yourself, there's those places where dust gets trapped in your home

and you leave it for another time because it's just too hard. Go Duster will do the job better, faster and far more effectively. Got it. We're getting great feedback from customers, those with allergies and asthmas because they're saying it really does trap the dust. That's terrific, isn't it? If you haven't heard about this, there's a warning on the handle. You've got to love this. Warning on the handle that says, "Warning - Go Duster might actually cause you to enjoy dusting."

They're offering the Obama pizza, with ham and pineapple - a tribute to his Hawaiian roots. And one with Senator McCain's favourite toppings - pepperoni and onions. And just like the election,

And just a little bit of mousse too. And just a little bit of mousse too.Ern they are keeping tally of which pizzas are sold. At the end of the promotion, the store will donate the pizza proceeds to the winning candidate's campaign.

That is a good way to do it.

Fabulous. Next hour - why one man's paddling a pumpkin 240 kilometres downstream.

take a look at the 'Home Beautiful' November edition. It's on sale Monday. A little later on this morning, how would you like a life-size LEGO model of yourself? Yes please! We're checking out an extravagant Christmas wish list shortly. But first, it's guessing games with Glenn Wheeler. We love having fun here on The Morning Show, and today it's game on. Kate's here to see if -

I'd like to play a little 'guess my age' game. I'm ready to go, Kate. Excellent.

I'm going to show you faces and I just want you to sing out how old you think these women are. I'm going to tell you if you're right or wrong. Haven't played this game since I was at the pub last Friday night. Go on, we're ready to go. Let's have a crack. This is Lori. How old do you think she may be? Already, I'd say 32.

Well, almost. In fact, she's 40. 40? She's not 40. Come on. You're pulling my leg.

I certainly am not. No tricks here. Next we have Karen. I want you to think how old she is. Karen, let's have a look at this. I'll take the beer goggles off and have a serious look here, I'd say 37. She's actually 47. 47! Come on, you are pulling my leg. Surely not! Trust me, I am certainly not pulling that leg. Finally we've got Winnie.

Have a good look, what do you think? Winnie, obviously you've kept the best to last. I'd say Winnie is probably about 18 or 19. Winnie is not even close to 18. She is 51. I have had too much to drink, it's obvious, isn't it? She looks incredible. That is amazing! What's the secret?

Glenn, all these women are dedicated Principal Secret Reclaim Users. Reclaim, what's Reclaim? Reclaim is a total skincare system that helps fight the signs of ageing. How would you like to hear what these ladies have to say about Reclaim? I'd actually like to meet Winnie. Let's have a listen. Using Reclaim has made my skin feel so smooth and so soft

and young-looking. I'm not ashamed to tell people I'm 40.

I started using Reclaim at 45 years old. I'm 47 now. I feel like I've reclaimed youthful looking skin. Friends mainly want to know what I'm using because they want their skin to look as nice as mine does. I've really noticed the change in the texture of the skin. It's been a really eye-opening experience,

that you don't have to spend a lot of money and you can keep it simple. Amazing-looking ladies. What's the magic ingredient? The secret to Reclaim is Argireline. And that's a protein

that's designed to help soften the visible appearance of forehead wrinkles, laugh lines and squint lines. In a recent study,

over 70% of participants reported a decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by laughing, frowning or squinting after using Reclaim. Amazing. So I guess the only thing left to ask is where do we get it? All you have to do is call today and we'll deliver your Reclaim 6-piece age-breaker kit straight to your door. Let me show you what the kit contains. There's the total facial cleanser, the Eye-mazing serum

the Reclaim day cream, and the night cream. Plus there's two powerful age-breaker products, the line-breaker serum and the enzyme mask and peel. This is valued up to $180

but today, all these products can be yours for just $59.95 plus $12.95 postage and handling.

Great. And I believe there's also a special bonus for Morning Show viewers? Absolutely. If Morning Show viewers call right now

they'll also receive four amazing gifts, this three-pack of Reclaim sampler products plus this gorgeous silver dress watch. Nice.

These gifts are valued at over $70, but if you order today, you can have these gifts absolutely free. Well done. 10 items for under $60 and as usual of course it all comes with a risk-free 60-day money-back guarantee. It certainly does. Simply return them, even if the jars are empty, no questions asked. I love that no-empty-jar guarantee, terrific. And you never have to worry about running out either because each new season you're conveniently sent a new supply of Reclaim for just $59.95 per month, right? That's absolutely right, and delivered to your door. So you don't ever have to worry about going to the shops or running out. Of course, there's no obligation with this and you can cancel this convenient service at any time. Well done. What a great deal.

Kate, thanks for the fun and games this morning. My pleasure.

Here's one way to end a dispute. A married Cambodian couple who'd finally had enough of each other

have gone their separate ways. But check out how they've split their assets. The wife is staying with this half of the house you can see onscreen while the hubby carried his half to the other side of the village to make a fresh start. Neighbours say the couple saw it as the most cost-effective way of avoiding each other. Apparently divorce lawyers are pretty expensive in Cambodia.

But first, are you considering retirement any time soon? Glenn has the details. Do you find yourself thinking about things that you'd rather be doing than working? Could it be that you're considering retiring in the not too distant future, maybe? It is a daunting thing for some, and certainly it's not something that we ever get taught about. But like everything in life, knowledge is the key and that's why Robyn Johnson from the Commonwealth Bank joins us today on The Morning Show.

Good morning, Robyn. Hi, Glenn. It's not really that much of a stretch, is it, to learn that 60% of baby boomers, like myself, intend to live life to the full and we're also expecting a better lifestyle in our retirement than our parents had? That's right. I think every generation aspires to a better lifestyle than their parents. The question is - is it possible? Well, apparently, you've unearthed some very interesting facts about just that, haven't you? That's right. We employed Galaxy Research

to conduct a financial savvy poll for us in June and that survey was focused on learning what baby boomers want from their financial future and in particular, what women want. Let's just hook into that for a tick. Tell us what some more of the relevant findings from your poll. The survey found that over half of Australian women are not financially savvy. While they're doing OK they need help planning for the lifestyle they want in retirement

and over a third of those women really don't know how they're going to manage in retirement. It's a bit of a worry, I suppose. How many women thinking of retiring have actually thought how seriously how much money they will need in that time? That's the problem, Glenn. There's only about 40% of those women that have thought about how much they need to plan for retirement

and there's not that many that have actually set that plan to do it compared to significantly more men. We need to get the girls into their running shoes. It seems that the ladies have fallen behind a little when it comes to thinking of their financial future? Well, they have, but it's not all bad news, Glenn. When asked about their investment strategy for savings, over 40% of women are setting aside money for their future.

It's just that they're not sure how to invest those savings. I suppose that's the important thing, and it sounds like they need to speak to a financial planner then to do the right thing then, doesn't it?


If they heard about an investment opportunity, many women said they would seek financial advice

just to help evaluate the risks involved. And that ties in nicely with our next point, because you guys at the Commonwealth Bank are holding some fabulous free seminars around the country, so tell us a bit about that. That's right. During October, we will be holding a series of free financial planning seminars to help give people the facts they need to know about retirement. These planning seminars specifically focus on the needs of baby boomers

like myself? Yes. Some of those seminars have also been designed to cater for the women that we've talked about today. It's interesting because even in times of economic uncertainly - and we've seen plenty of that - it is, I dare say, still prudent to continue to invest for your retirement and to take advantage of any tax benefits that could come your way. Now is as good a time as any to be talking to a financial planner to review your current needs. In a nutshell, it might help you to afford the lifestyle that you do want in retirement and more importantly, to be able to retire when you want to do rather than when you're forced to? Correct.

Our survey indicated that over half the people are more determined than ever now in the current climate to save for what they need. Just to talk us through the benefits of talking to a financial planner. A Commonwealth Bank financial planner will review your individual situation with you - show you what strategies you need to consider to plan for your retirement and help ensure a secure future. Can anybody attend these free seminars? Yes. All the information is on our website - We are giving away a free copy of our 'Retire Ready' book during their appointments, which also explains further tips on what you need to know about retiring. I think I'm ready already to retire. I'll read the book, anyway. To learn more about these free seminars or to book an appointment to see a Commonwealth Bank financial planner, call - or jump on the website - or just pop into your local Commonwealth Bank branch. Simple as that. Robyn, thanks for coming onto The Morning Show today. Thanks, Glenn. We all like to think about retirement -

can't come quickly enough for me. I don't know about you. Guys, back to you.
