into a San Diego neighbourhood. where a fighter jet has crashed our US correspondent, Mike Amor. For more, let's go to Morning, Mike. Do we know how this happened?

Well, when you see that video from

overhead, it is remarkable to hear

authorities do not believe that

anyone was killed or even seriously

injured in this crash. They say this

FA18 crashed into the residential

area and has possibly destroyed FA18 crashed into the residential

between two and four homes. About

two hours ago, we believe the plane

was coming in to land at Miramar air

field, which was made famous in

Tom Cruise. One witness said the 'Top Gun' movie of course, starring

plane was travelling very low and

suddenly spiraled out of control,

just like the 'Top Gun' movie. His

word, not mine. Another witness saw

smoke coming from the tail. The

pilot appeared to hang on, trying to

reach the air field, which was about

three kilometres away, trying to

avoid hitting a populate area. He

obviously failed to do that. We

believe the plane's fuse lush is in

the middle of the street. Another

witness saw the pilot eject and land

safely by parachute. He was able to

walk away and has been taken to

hospital, obviously very shaken up.

Thanks, Mike. Some good news this morning - a new generation of non-smokers. Australia is breeding now smoke Just one in five Australians compared to one in three in 1980. people are leading the resistance. And the good news is that young among 18- to 24-year-olds Smoking rates have halved in the last 20 years. finally getting through? Is the message the executive director of QUIT Fiona Sharkie is and she joins us now from Melbourne. Good morning, Fiona. finally getting through? Is the message

This is great news. Yes, I think it This is great news. Yes, I think

has been getting through for some

time. It is as you say, terrific

that we see a new generation, or

this next generation of adults

coming through that are heeding the

warnings about the deadly

consequences of smoking. It is taken

a long time, it has been a long,

hard fight? It has been a long

fight, but it has been a very

productive one and a very successful

one. And I have to say, our work at

Quit is not yet done, unfortunately.

Am we still have one in five

Australian adults still smoking. But

as we have seen in this information,

the difference has been really been

that young people, this generation,

the 18-to 24-year-olds have grown up

in an environment where smoking is

not the norm. They have seen their

parents give up smoking and

antismoking messages and it is

bleezing to see they are not

bleezing to see they are not going

to be the the one in two who die of

smoking-caused illnesses in the

years to follow. What

years to follow. What do you think

is behind the decline? We are seeing

pictures of an intense advertising

campaigns. Is it the smoking bans or

a combination of factors? You are

exactly right. We know over 30 years

of experience what has to happen and

of experience what has to happen and

what works successfully. There are

three main ingredients. One is to

keep the price of cigarettes high.

We have slipped in

We have slipped in terms of a pack

of cigarettes should be costing $20, of cigarettes should be costing $

instead of the $

instead of the $11 or $

instead of the $11 or $12 that it

does. Price plays a very big part.

The antismoking messages. Of course,

the bans and restrictions on where

people can smoke, all those three

together. It is the combination of

the three together, not one more

than another that brings smoking

rates down. Talking about the bans

and restrictions, and they are

spreading every time we look around.

60% of non-smokers say they support

a total ban on smoking. We are away from a total ban on smoking. We are away a total ban on smoking. We are

from a total ban on smoking. We

won't see that. But our view is the

horse has bolted. We still have

millions of Australian whose are

still mokeing and our job at Quit

and more broadly is to support those and more broadly is to support

smokers to quit. The key message is

it is never too late to quit. Try

and try again. That is the old adage

is very, very pertinent when it

comes to smoking. Quitting a very is very, very pertinent when it

hard but each time someone attempts

to quit they learn something more

and will eventually get there. It is

the key message. Whenever we discuss

the key message. Whenever we discuss this issue, smokers e-mail in and

tell us they feel victimised for

doing something that is quite legal

here in Australia. Can you

understand their frustration? Yes,

we can. I think you know, wree do,

as I say, our role is not to punish

smokers or, but we do have a

responsibility to protect others

responsibility to protect others from second-hand smoke. Just as

there is no safe level of smoking,

there is no safe level of

second-hand smoke as well. The

restrictions are very important in

protecting others who don't smoke, as well

as well as trying to encourage those

who do smoke to give it up. There

is, possibly, no worse thing you can

do to your body when you consider,

again, one in two long-term smokers

will die from smoking. We have to be

really, really insistent, I guess,

and keep uro message going through.

Keep telling people about the

dangers. But on the other side,

support them to quit. We have seen

far greater increases in calls to

the quit line this year, increases

on people visiting doctors to quit

smoking and it all good. Help is

there. It is good need, there. It is good need, indeed.

Thank you for joining us this morning. It's the news red wine lovers have been waiting for - a Harvard University study has found it's not only good for the heart, but a daily tipple could actually be the secret to keeping us young. So have scientists really discovered the fountain of youth? Dr Ginni Mansberg joins us now with more. Good morning, Ginni.

Larry and I don't know mouch about

science, how does it work? Some

people hear anti ageing and they

think anti wrinkle but we are

talking about preserving each cell,

throw on your face in a mist or can.

They worked out how to stop the DNA

I went out for dinner with friends,

stopped at half a glass of red wine,

and I said no, we stopped at half a glass of red wine, and I said no, we are talking to a

doctor tomorrow and it a good thing?

We have still got to look at safe

levels of drinking. The Harvard

univsty guys worked out it is one or

two glasses a day that has the

effect on the cells. Once you hit

more than two glasses a day for

women and four for men,

women and four for men, you are

outweighing the effects. 4

have four glasses a day, with one to

most popular stolen items. Were you

surprised? Thieves focus on

jewellery, watches, bracelets and

those types of items, but with the

shifting the focus to smaller,

that are portable, profitable and

up close and personal with our hottest swim stars. But first, Glenn's asking the hard questions.

Every morning when you come on The Morning Show,

you show us something that's fast and easy and the H2O Mop is no exception. But I must ask this question on behalf of the many thousands of Morning Show viewers and myself - why is it when you do the cleaning you make it look so easy?

It's not me, Glenn - it's the H20 Steam Mop. Not only is it light and easy but you can do things you wouldn't usually be able to do

with your mop and bucket. Have a look over here. which lets you clean and refresh your carpets, unlike you wouldn't be able to do with a regular mop and bucket. And here's a good example. Watch the black carpet I've got here. I'm going to put some honey over the top of this.

How would you feel if you had honey on the floor? I'd prefer it on toast in the morning with a cup of tea. Have a look at this. I'm going to take it off the carpet glider. For heavy stains on the floor, you just go over the top with your H2O Steam Mop and it picks them up that quick and that easily. Are you impressed so far? That is impressive. That's fantastic. Look at the hardwood floors.

If you've got a big mess, the kids have left paint on the floor, you've got scuff marks. School holidays. Mud, dirt. But you can go straight from your carpets straight onto your hardwood floors.

I've got beetroot here on terra-cotta tiles here. Have a look how the H20 Steam Mop just picks it up that quickly and that easily. Try doing that with your mop and bucket. That is amazing. I'll tell you what I do like. I like the fact it only takes 30 seconds to heat up and then gives you 20 minutes or so of continuous steam with ordinary tap water. If you combine that with the microfibre cover, you can clean all the floors, remove scuff marks using one hand, it's so light. You just demonstrated beautifully. It's fantastic. and forget the mop and bucket. Call right now The H20 Mop uses 1,500 watts of steam penetrating the dirt in the pores of the floor. The pressure loosens and cleans, while the microfibre pad sweeps it away, and being super absorbent, your floors are dried at the same time. Which is very important. It also works with your favourite detergent.

Remember, with a regular mop even if it looks clean, it's not. With the H2O Steam Mop's microfibre pad, it's like cleaning with a new mop, every single time. The H2O Steam works on every surface from linoleum to laminate, marble, vinyl, slate, ceramic, even tough-to-clean grout lines and it's safe enough to use on hardwood floor. We recently had a big party at home and we cleaned the tiles next morning, mmmmm, beautifully with H2O Steam Mop just like that. But there's more. The H2O Steam Mop even converts to your own carpet steamer. Now, that's impressive.

You can erase stains and spills, and deodorise and freshen all your carpets, rugs, mats

in high-traffic areas all with the one machine which is very, very clever and it comes with two free reusable microfibre pads. It's thick, it's super-absorbent and it's got thousands of micropockets and they soak up the spills and then trap the dirt and grime for the cleanest floors ever. You were telling me earlier that this constantly sells out. Here we go. What special offer have you got for Morning Show viewers today? Have a listen to this. Grab a pen and paper or put this number into your phone. We are back in stock. Hallelujah!

For the first 200 customers who call, you'll receive: 10 disposable mop pads and two reusable microfibre mop pads all for just four payments of $49.95.

Here we go, my favourite part. We'll turn the lights down. Have a look at this. Have a look at the floor here first. You'll notice on the floor it looks clean. When you turn the lights down, you'll see that when you think it's clean, it's not. The H2O Steam Mop removes hidden dirt and grime not seen in normal light. It's proven to remove bacteria and germs such as E.coli not seen by the human eye.

Remember, whatever your floor, it's not clean until it's H2O Mop clean. So there we are. That could be the bathroom floor, for example - a perfect example.

Call and put it to the test in your home with Danoz's 30-day money-back guarantee. It's a great deal. Don't miss out. You get 10 free disposable mop pads plus the two free reusable microfibre pads Order at All yours for four payments of just...

A supersonic fighter jet has crashed into a densely populated suburb in the United States. The pilot ejected before the F/A-18 came down in the San Diego neighbourhood a few hours ago. Witnesses have described it like a scene out of the movie 'Top Gun'. Friends of Kerryn McCann are urging Australian women to undergo regular breast checks.

scurrying. Put his finger in the

groove and see if it fits. With Christmas fast approaching, we're all looking forward to a few days off to rest and recharge the batteries. But for many, even the thought of getting through the next few weeks is enough to fill them with dread. Statistics show the majority of nervous breakdowns, illnesses and depression occur just before Christmas. So how do you beat the end-of-year burnout and start the new year with a bang? Morning Show psychologist Jo Lamble joins us now with more. Good morning to you. Jo, why is the end of the year rife with these problems?

Is it all just pent up? Got so much

to do. You got to finish off work,

shop for Christmas. If you got kids

you are attending speech nights and

awards ceremonies, concerts all that

sort of stuff. Plus Christmas

sort of stuff. Plus Christmas parties. It is easy to feel

overwhelmed. Plus if you're on your

own or grieving, it is a hard time

to get through. How do you to get through. How

to get through. How do you know

to get through. How do you know if you are suffering from burn-out? It

describes the feeling of being

overwhelmed. So stressed. It can be

paralysing, you don't know where to

start. You can lose perspective. You

say, "

say, "If I don't get the Christmas

cards out I'm a bad person." You

lose the plot. Is it blurry between

burnout and depression? Is it a big

jump or not

jump or not? It is a big jump. When

you are burned out we are

overwhelmed with stress. But if we

can stop and have a drink with

friends and watch the concert

friends and watch the concert it is

burnout. It is depression if you

don't enjoy yourself, even when you

stop. Lack of sleep, sex drive,

appetite. It is far more than

burnout, it will go on after

Christmas. Many families are being

forced to tighten the purse strings

this Christmas and can't get the

annual vacation, how can they get

the relaxation they need to stop and

take check and have a break. I am

hearing this a lot. A lot of

holidays being cancelled. Time to

get creative. Go back to the back

yard cricket game with neighbours,

pick Nicks, fishing, reading,

playing ball games with kids. They

are relaxing and cheap. If you just

focus on having to change because of

tight financial constraints, then

you are going to find that change is

not good. But it is time to start

new traditions. Trying to do the new traditions. Trying to do the

holiday with your family you can't

afford would cause an enormous

amount of stress. I tkoepbt think

you should tell kid about too much

trouble with money. But be honest.

We are going to start new

traditions. Got tips for beating

burnout? Yes, be realistic. Tackle

what ayou think you can adjust to. what ayou think you can adjust to.

Make lists. Get it out of your head

or you do stay away at night.

Delegate, don't be the control

freak. Kylie would love to hear

this, exercise, sleep and eat

this, exercise, sleep and eat healthily will be important. If you

are tired and unhealthy you will

feel burnout more. Remind yourself

what Christmas is about, a religious

ceremony or about friends and

family. Get the perspective back family. Get the perspective back again.

family. Get the perspective back again. Thank you, good to see you.

Coming up, Kylie Minogue's first-ever concert in New Zealand. We'll get all the goss ahead of her arrival in Australia tomorrow. But first, Glenn's found a Morning Show favourite to help spread the good news. Whether you are a regular Joe or a big Hollywood superstar, everybody needs a little help now and then with their looks. Luckily, our very own fashion expert Kai Aiyub joins us on the Morning Show to let us in on his secret to looking good. Welcome back, Kai. Hi there, handsome. How are you? Thank you very much, love it when you talk like that. Now, you are the fashion guru. I am the secret weapon, out on day release, yes. We don't need to know about your secret weapon on day release, but, speaking of secrets, and what is the secret to looking sharp these days? Well, I am sharing it with you. The thing is that, Glenn, your skin, your face are often the first things that people notice about you. When acne pops up, it is not really a good look. No, it is not a good look. So you are going to tell us that you have found something that can help people with acne to help keep their skin clear? I sure have, Glenn and it is a product I religiously use everyday. It is Proactiv Solution. So, you actually use Proactiv Solution that, of course, we sell here on the Morning Show. And yet, you don't even look like you need it. I can tell you, it is all 100% true. I found with my busy schedule as a fashion stylist, I was getting stressed out and it was really taking its toll on my skin and when I am constantly meeting industry heavyweights, appearing on the Morning Show and standing next to a devilishly handsome man like you, I could not afford to have bad skin at all. You've got lovely skin, Kai. You can feel lower if you like. Thank you. But, you are right, it is true, though - when you are standing here, telling other people about how they should lock good and you are talking to Larry and Kylie about all that, you are conscious of making sure that your skin is right. Exactly. And, you know what, I was up late one night and I saw the Proactiv infomercial on TV and all these people who were showing the before-and-after shots

and also how passionate they were about this product so I figured, "Hey, I will try it". After all, they do have a 60-day, money-back guarantee. You gotta to love that little bit. So did it work for you? I am assuming it did. Well, as you can see, smooth as a baby's bottom and I no longer have any acne. Feel the other side too if you like. No, no, that'll do for the moment. The thing is that in our society, we want to see results right away

so I was really stoked when, how quickly Proactiv worked for me. So, what would you say then to viewers who are umm-ing and ah-ing about trying Proactiv and especially for guys. You know, blokes who might be watching the Morning Show this morning and they are hesitant to purchase skincare product off the telly. Well, Glenn, it doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman or how old you are or what colour your skin it is,

my personal philosophy is that clear skin is the best accessory. It is timeless, it goes with everything and it is something everyone deserves and you can get it too with Proactiv. Gotta love that.

So you are very well prepared. We

longest period will be about 63

kilometres from Minnie Waters

Christmas. We got north-easterly

winds taking us down the coast. If

it changes to southerly, we will get

strong winds and it could be a

problem. We got the current down the

east coast which should help us out.

But it is approximately 45

kilometres a day. Start early in the

morning when it is calm. What are

some of the dangers? Besides the

obvious, your sharks and the actual

boat sinking, whilst there are

sharks around are the main ones. But

the main one is the winds. Just

going into a wind and losing a day

from not being able to paddle. But

yes, besides that, pretty excited.

What inspired you to do it. We are

It assists you in losing your weight around the stomach and that hard-to-achieve mid section. Plus, it improves your core strength whilst creating that support for your back and your neck. The Ab King Pro is so easy to use. There are four levels of resistance so it's great for everyone - including beginners. We've got customers ranging from their 20s to senior citizens who are achieving fantastic results. Terrific - something for everybody. on the market, There are a number of machines actually differ? so how does the Ab King Pro results quite like the Ab King Pro. Glenn, nothing delivers You see, ordinary machines - a 90-degree range of motion they only give you is its amazing 200-degree range but the Ab King Pro's secret middle abs and obliques all at once. that targets your upper, lower, in weeks - not months. You'll firm and flatten your stomach work your abs on the way up Most products and exercises only brings you below parallel but the Ab King Pro's amazing design in a 200-degree range of motion all at once - to target the entire middle section and on the way down. that's, of course, on the way up I like the fact that there's no more rolling around on the floor I mean in an exercise sense, of course, but no more straining of your neck or your back. Exactly. The Ab King Pro's travelling back support system, it stabilises your spine - keeping you in perfect form. You can watch your favourite programs on TV at the same time as losing centimetres from your waist.

Helen, how have you found it? Easy to use? At first I was worried I'd be too old to use it but I found it really easy. That's great. Have you noticed any changes? Yes, my friends have, too.

Thng you, Larry. We are going to go

back to the US where we have just

received some fresh information

about the fighter jet that crashed

into a san Diego neighbourhood

earlier this morning. Mike, fresh

information, what can you tell us

Yes, Bec sad information. The mayor

has just held a press conference and

confirmed that two people on the

ground in that neighbourhood have

died from this plane crash. Of

course, we mentioned earlier an FA18

fighter jet crashed into the

neighbourhood about three hours ago.

It appears two homes have been

destroyed. The pilot of that fighter

jet was able to parachute to safety.

Witnesses say it appeared the pilot

tried to hang on as long as possible

to avoid the residential area. From

the pictures

successful. He crash under to the

houses. As we say, two people on the

homes have been killed. That is sad

news. One thing authorities will be

looking at there, Bec, this is the

second crash. There was a similar

crash last year, I don't believe

there were fatalities involved there

but this is something authorities

will look at, the FA18, which is

will look at, the FA18, which is otherwise known as a Hornet. Sad

news, there has not been a

miraculous escape. There are two


fatalities. We can see from the

pictures it is a heavily populated

area. Thank you. Ann Sanders will

have the latest in the Morning News. Welcome back to The Morning Show live on Seven.

Good morning to all our viewers in Hobart. A few showers developing for you today with a top of 19.

On the way this hour, the beautiful bodies of Australian swimming. We're going behind the scenes as our swimmers strip off a Speedo photo shoot. Also ahead, all the goss from Kylie's first ever concert in New Zealand. And who's making the most money in prime-time TV? We'll find out just how much the highest female earners make. Here's something for the boss to think about. The amount you earn could be reflected in the number of sick days you take. According to the latest research, higher earners are less likely to take time off.

So what do our Tuesday Jury make of this? It's over to Sami Lukis and Phil O'Neill from Triple M. Good morning. Sami, do you think people who get paid more take fewer sick days?

I don't think it matters how much

you earn. I think it is just the

Aussie way. If you don't feel

appreciated by the boss, that he

understand stand and appreciates the

amount of were you are doing or she,

you are more likely to say, " you are more likely to say, "I'm not

putting up with this." And take a sicky. Phil, the so-called experts suggest this is because people who earn more feel more rewarded for the work they do. Does that surprise you?

It is a

It is a hypothetical for me. But the

more money you have got, you can

have a better sicky. Larry, on your

yacht the other day, when you had

the flu, it was terrific. What a great the flu, it was terrific. What a

great afternoon. It was hard landing

the chopper on the yacht with the

wind. The limo ride was nice. I

think people should take more

sickies, I take garlic every day and

water. She does, you can smell St.

It is? When someone comes in and

coughing and spitting and spreading the love germs

the love germ, you should be home at

bed. Head to the MMM web site if you

need to get in contact with Sami.

Moving on, and an in-store Santa in the UK has been sacked for taking a call on his mobile in front of visiting children.

Women are their most sexy at 34. Why

look at me Because you planted the

an instore Santa in the United

Because he had to sort out of

using Santa as a prospect, for

use it. He said the phone call was

to the elives to deliver it toys. He was saying it

was saying to Lapland, make of that

what you will. It could be an

expensive call. Later this hour, Eamon Sullivan gets his gear off for our cameras. We're going behind the scenes of his latest photo shoot. That's coming up in just a moment. But first, Glenn's here with some simple ways to trim the household budget. Who thinks we're being taken for a ride by those oil companies? You're telling me! It's bad enough that we have to pay exorbitant prices for fuel, so why would we want to spend any more on our car insurance? Thank goodness Faye's back. Welcome back to the Morning Show, Faye. Good morning, Glenn. You're right - it is a growing problem. So big, in fact, that some families are taking the risk and not insuring their car at all. Ooh, bit of a worry, Faye, that's dangerous stuff. Yeah, it is. It may sound boring, but being insured is so important because you just know the moment you don't insure your car something's going to happen to it.

Bingo, absolutely right. Murphy's Law, I think we call it. But why is it so expensive? It costs us so much money. The thing about it is - and look, this is not very fair - you could be paying higher premiums to subsidise all the bad drivers out there. It's not very fair, you're right. That's a bit of a worry but your mates at Budget Direct are doing something about it. What are they actually up to? They have designed a plan to reward good drivers.

I like the sound of that. If they're insuring the good drivers or let's call them safe drivers then they're obviously not having to pay out as many claims for the bad drivers. You got it. There's less risk and less cost and they pass those savings on to their customers. Good, we like that. That sounds fairer. How much can we save, what are we looking at? Safe drivers could save hundreds, up to $400 a year, in some cases, even more. Great, I like the sound of that.

Take a look at these examples. she called around a number of other major insurers with Budget Direct's low prices. So that's 50% back in her pocket. she was paying $603 for her Barina, now she's just paying $336. That's incredible stuff, Faye. But it's this one. But have a look at this, this really blows my mind away. This is Mrs Anderson from NSW - She's managed to save herself almost $500 in the process. That's almost $500 a year. Pretty impressive stuff, I've got to say. Let's look at it from another angle -

it's a free holiday every year. I know. I wouldn't say no to that. Me either. Get this - to prove what they're saying, they're even prepared to put their money where their mouth is. How do they do that? They offer a Price Beat guarantee. That means if you're over 25 and you find a lower comparable quote within 21 days of buying a Budget Direct policy, and you meet the guarantee terms, they'll not only match it, they'll beat it - guaranteed! I'm actually glad I'm over 25 now. That's a big claim and always good to know too, but here's the thing - I believe Budget Direct has just been awarded the coveted Cannex 5-star rating for best value. Look at that - what a cracker. Pretty reassuring stuff. It is. It's the highest rating possible, so you can be assured there's no corner-cutting on your policy. It's quality insurance with the competitive features you'd expect. I like that. The big insurers must hate Budget Direct, though. Budget Direct are pretty big themselves, aren't they? Yeah, they are.

Over 5,000 Australian drivers are insuring each week. I think a good point for people to remember too about all of this is that car insurance isn't like a mobile phone contract - you can cancel an existing overpriced policy pretty much immediately, can't you? Even if there are some small cancellation fees involved, it's worth doing because you can still make some incredible savings. That is exactly right - it's so easy to switch. One phone call could save you hundreds of bucks a year. That's the holiday we were talking about. Just recapping then, Faye - with Budget Direct, we can be making big, big savings and it's quality insurance, backed by that Cannex 5-star rating. It seems that we better call right now. Or you can jump online. Another important point, Budget Direct also offers home and contents insurance, doesn't it, Faye? They sure do. So for car insurance or even home and contents, call right now or get a 2-minute fast quote online. It'll only take a few minutes and could save you hundreds.

That's what we love on The Morning Show, saving money. Faye, thanks for coming in. Thank you. I look forward to that holiday. Yeah. I think Tahiti is nice this time of year. Sounds good. Guys, back to you. Thanks, Glenn. Coming up - the man attempting to set a world record

for sitting in a bath of -20 degree icy water.
