I told you I thought it was all

gags or stunts and Eminem

Baron Cohen haven't said anything gags or stunts and Eminem and Sacha

but the head writer admitted on his

blog that the incident was a stunt.

They planned it and worked it out in

dress rehearsal and it went as far

as it went then. You have to give

Eminem credit because he poked fun

at him having a temper and remember

he is an actor and won an Oscar for

Get back a bit. Fifi has your first

look at the weather this morning.

Where are you? This morning I am on

the Gold Coast and I am back at

school. I at Saint Michael's

college. NAB's first school program

is starting today. It is a great pro

gam that helps kids learn outside

the school. We will be growing food

and cooking things. I haven't

explained to the kids that I can't

cook but we will see what happens as

the morning continues. Sunrise weather for Whereis mobile. Get free maps and directions on the Telstra Next G network. Cairns, partly cloudy. Some light rain for Mackay and Rockhampton. Mt Isa, sunny and warm. A late storm for Toowoomba. Some light rain this morning in Brisbane with showers increasing this afternoon. Into New South Wales - Grafton, showers. Some rain for Dubbo and Newcastle. Showers increasing throughout the day in Sydney. Canberra, light showers. Early fog, then patchy rain for Mildura. Cool and wet in Bendigo and Warrnambool. A little rain for Melbourne for the State of Origin clash. Light rain this morning for Tasmania. Across into South Australia - showers clearing from Mt Gambier. A shower or two for Adelaide. Sunny and mild in Coober Pedy. Cloudy in the Alice. Sunny and warm in Darwin. And showers for much of Western Australia. The chance of a thunderstorm in Albany. Perth can expect a shower or two. Scattered showers for Kalgoorlie. Broome, sunny.

Looking at the fantastic fruit and

vegetables we will be cooking, I

think I will learn more than the

kids here today. I could do with

this. We got some good information

this. We got some good information for you on who actually cooks in the

kitchen. It will surprise you. Stick

around for that. I will look forward to that. Still ahead - should a gay man be allowed to become a dad

using a surrogate mum? And later, how parents can now keep an eye on their kids' mobile phone use. after 10:30am at McDonald's and collect one of these cool Mini Board Games for only $1. With Mon poly, Trivial Pursuit With Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit or Guess Who?, Only at McDonald's. What's making the papers, Nat? An issue that's dear to our hearts is on the front page - the health system. The 'Daily Telegraph' says we're heading for a US-style user-pays system within a few years.

That's under a plan for a new Federal-State partnership

on hospitals and patient care. 'The Age' has some good news for our economy. It says there's been a surge in exports resulting in our best trade performance in 48 years. And the big banks are upbeat with their predictions on the future.

Kochie, we may not go into

recession. We will know today

whether we have gone into recession, whether we have gone into recession,

two consecutive quarters of negative

economic growth. A lot of economists

on that trade result are saying, " on that trade result are saying,

"May not.

"May not." And building approvals

are up, fourth month in a row. The

economists are rejecting the recession. Good news as well for imaginary friends. 'The Australian' says kids with invisible companions are likely to be better communicators. They're also more creative when they grow up. We'd like to know if you had an imaginary friend when you were young.

Sally had Milko. Lib had an

imaginary friend. She married him. I

am real, thanks very much. But she

still have Maggie friends now. Oh

no. She has kitchen friends. Lib

will be in the kitchen and I am

watching TV, on the rare occasion

that I am not cooking. I will say " that I am not cooking. I will say "What's that?

"What's that?" And she says nothing.

As a child, did you have an

imaginary friend? Apparently it is

fine. You don't have to take them to

the psychologist. It is normal. When

they go to school, it disappears.

Good for your imagination. Prepare for the battle of the sexes to move to the kitchen. The 'Courier-Mail' says a national survey on our cooking habits shows mums are the workhorses who keep food on the table.

Dads are the 'show ponies' who cook less but make more of a fuss about it.

This is so true! And 30% of dads don't do any cooking.

So 70% do. Yes. They might do one

thing every now and then and, boy,

do they tell you about it. Let's

have vikt ado a survey on how -

Victa needs to do a survey on

Victa needs to do a survey on how many women mow the lawn. Yes, and

you got to keep an eye on it. There

is more precision in mowing the lawn

than just cooking. You women just

chuck stuff in the pot. How many

member start the mower. Still done

by a bloke. My lovely hubby saves it

around for a dinner party and he has

this fantastic 3-course meal. You

know what blokes are all about?

Quality, not quantity. Tell that to

the kids who are hungry at 5:00

every night. Coming up with what to

cook is a boring pain. Go to the

freezer and pull out the fish

fingers. So you would be happy with

that? Let us know what happens in

your kitchen. Is it true that the

lady is the work horse and the dads

are the show ponies? Coming up - Grant Denyer's new mission. And yes, it involves cars. And the retailers get ready to open their doors for the stocktake sales. Straight ahead, though -

we're live to New York for Kochie's finance report. You're watching Sunrise on Seven. WOMAN: Unlike period pads, Tena are designed to absorb the thinner, faster flow of a beak ladder.

The Dow Jones up 45 points. Now it's over to Scott Wapner, a CNBC finance reporter. What drove the market today?

We were in negative territory until

a pending hole sales report came out

and it was much - pending home sales

report came out and it was much

better than expected. You did get

better than expected auto sales for

a change which was nice to see given

everything we have seen

everything we have seen around General Motors and Chrysler and the

two bankruptcies. I was reading that

more of the banks are paying their

Government bailout money. Is that a

good sign? Most banks want to pay it

back. It say matter of the

Government allowing them to do so.

You had a number of banks coming out

today saying they will do it,

American Express, JP morgue on. - JP

Morgan. It is just a matter of the

secretary calling them up and saying

they can do so. We are talking about

blokes in the kitchen. Are you a bit

of a work horse in the kitchen? Yes.

Thank goodness my wife can't see it

or I would be in deep, you know

what. I will probably go home and

whip up some pasta or something. Do

you know what bucatini maracheli.

No. It is pasta but hollow and you cook

it until it is a nice snocky flavour

sweating. Am I blushing? You are the

sensitive new-age guy we need on

this show. Alright. Father of two

But next this morning's news and today's weather. And later this Sunrise - my mate John. We'll meet the former schoolboy who talked his way into John Lennon's life.

When we need a car, we call Thrifty - Australia's best-valued car and truck rental. Tomorrow on Sunrise - inside America's Secret Service. The agents have the job of protecting the President. And for the first time, they're letting cameras into their training camp. You'll only see it here. Also tomorrow, it's 20 years since these remarkable scenes in Beijing's Tiananmen Square.

That the greatest image of modern

time. What happened to those

protesters. Find out told on Sunrise.

Sunrise. So cool. Wouldn't you love

to go to a training camp? When we

were at the inauguration, we met

someone who was a cop and he was

fourth in line. He was only 20 feet

back. That is how many layers they

had. And the checks they had to go

through because they all had loaded

guns. Remember when the light blew

in here and I threw myself in front

of you? Yes. I have the Secret

Service agility. You certainly threw

yourself but Nat was there and you

were there. Coming up this Sunrise - the technology that lets mums and dads keep a closer eye on their kids. And later, we'll talk live to the world's real life Spider-Man. But first, let's check the news headlines. Here's Nat with the 6:30 update. Good morning. A life jacket and an aeroplane seat have been spotted in the Atlantic Ocean as crews continue to search for the missing Air France passenger plane. The Brazilian military reported the sighting and search crews are frantically trying to confirm the find. These debris are clues to the last position we had of the A330. 228 passengers and crew were on board the aircraft when it disappeared from the radar between Rio de Janerio and Paris on Monday. Defence Minister Joel Fitzgibbon is in hot water again after failing to declare a sponsored hotel bill. NIB Health Funds paid Mr Fitzgibbon's $450 accommodation costs when he travelled to Brisbane

for a State of Origin match last year. His brother is NIB's chief executive. Mr Fitzgibbon has apologised and updated his records. A woman has been killed in a crash between two P-plate drivers in Sydney's west. The cars collided at Mount Prichard just after 7:00 last night. A 50-year-old woman in the back seat of the Toyota Echo died in hospital. The two drivers were injured. In Melbourne, four 16-year-olds were rushed to hospital after an unlicensed driver crashed into a tree. French Spider-Man Alain Robert will appear in a Sydney court today over his climb up a 41-storey skyscraper. Streets were closed while the 46-year-old made his way up the 218m building without any safety equipment. Police are considering whether his sponsors and celebrity agent should also be charged. Time for sport now with Beretta.

If you - if you were on your way

back from the gym, that was

something to see. Shouldn't you be

something to see. Shouldn't you be coming back with your head down? Both New South Wales and Queensland's State of Origin teams have refused to name their starting side ahead of tonight's all-important series opener in Melbourne. Blues enforcer Michael Weyman could make a late charge to terrorise the Maroons' forward pack but coach Craig Bellamy is convinced no matter which way they go, New South Wales has what it takes to end Queensland's victorious run.

We got some real speed on the edges

and a bit of experience in the front

row there. Again, we had probably -

our strong area was the back row Mal Meninga has kept everyone guessing when it comes to his back line. There are no guarantees Karmichael Hunt will start at fullback with Billy Slater in the mix. Comeback queen Maria Sharapova is out of the French Open after being crushed by Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia Women's world number one Dinara Safina recovered from a slow start against Victoria Azarenka in their quarterfinal. While in the men's, Swede Robin Soderling continued his dream run. He backed up his weekend win over world number one Rafael Nadal to beat another seed overnight in Nikolay Davydenko. Also moving through to the semifinals is Fernando Gonzalez after he hammered third seed Andy Murray, firing 45 winners. And it's shaping up as a 2-horse race to replace Richmond coach Terry Wallace at the Tigers. Sportingbet has former Richmond captain Wayne Campbell and Mick Malthouse as equal favourites for the job. Former Collingwood skipper Nathan Buckley is in the mix at $6.50.

Mick Malthouse played 121 game it's

there sat Richmond. A bit of

history. If Mick goes to Richmond,

there is a spot at - it is all

happening. Bucks denied it though.

That was so last week. Fifi has your

latest weather from the Gold Coast

today. I do. Here at St Michael's

college. The kids are up nice and

early looking very well presented.

Let's look at the forecast. Sunrise weather for Whereis mobile. Get free maps and directions on the Telstra Next G network. Some light rain this morning in Brisbane with showers increasing this afternoon and a top of 21 degrees. Clearing by Saturday. Showers and 17 in Sydney. Some rain for the coming days. Partly cloudy on Saturday.

Early fog clearing to patchy rain and 16 in Melbourne. Light showers through until Sunday. Cloudy with a few showers in Adelaide and 17 degrees. Mainly dry tomorrow

with the rain returning for the weekend. Scattered showers and 20 in Perth today. A fine and mild weekend is expected. Canberra, cool with showers.

14 in Hobart with showers and that's the way it's going to stay for a few days. Dry and warm in Darwin.

We have been welcomed here and the kids

kids are learning fantastic things

that they wouldn't normally learn in

a classroom. Nicole, you have been

growing herbs and vegetables and

harvesting them. What do you do once

you reap the rewards from the

garden? We are going to fund raise

and sell the plants that we made and

we choose a charity and it is Roses

and they buy all the things people

need. Roses gives back to the

community. Terrific project ot St

Michael's. Very impressive kids.

Fif, look at all the badges on

Nicole. She is a one wol school. I

did ask Nicole about it. These are

all her predecessors. I am the

president of the Interact club.

These are all the presidents before

her. I am not trying to take away

from her. In 20 years it will be

chain mail. It looks heavy. It is

heavy. It is pulling my neck down.

It is OK. Bye, guys. Apparently

The Wilsons give their verdict on who'll draw first blood. The Wilsons brought to you by the Bravia 200-hertz motion-flow TV from Sony for the smoothest picture ever. With all the sporting news, here's Beretts. Forget the hype - tonight the Blues and Maroons will settle it on the field. But who will draw first blood in State of Origin Game One? Let's ask Jim Wilson and his sister Rebecca from Vega FM. Jim, Maroons coach Mal Meninga has been telling his troops not to be complacent.

Queensland goes into every series

wanting to be 10:

wanting to be 10:1 outsiders. They

got the Test back line and front

row. All in all, I am looking

forward to this. The roof will be

on. Etihad Stadium will be rocking.

We don't want to condone sporting

violence but bring on the biff. I

don't think there will be any biff.

Both teams are professionals. In the

Morning Telegraph in Sydney I was

asking for the tip and almost

everyone tipped Sydney. $

everyone tipped Sydney. $100,000 was

one punter and we got to be hot

favourites. I think with no wind

conditions whatsoever, go Maroons. I

reckon we are certainties. Can you

not replay that tomorrow? Yes, OK. Ben Cousins has also been fined $10,000 after he gave the finger to a TV camera. Most of it's been suspended.

Sglvlgts He will write a cheque Sglvlgts He will write a cheque for $ Sglvlgts He will write a cheque for $2, Sglvlgts He will write a cheque for

$2,500. Do you reckon the AFL has

gone toothless on this They have

gone toothless. Ben owes his fans

and everyone who plays with him more than $

than $2,

than $2,500. Money won't pay for

what he did but I wonder who is

going on through his head. There was

a brain snap and he has to grow up

and act his age. Under the rules,

that is the maximum they can fine

him. They will have to review the

rules because it should have been an

heavier penalty. Before we go,

Beretts, are you going for New South

Wales or Queensland? New South Wales

and I am going for the Blues. With

Geelong background? No, that is my

roots. Tribe and roots. Good luck

you too. Go Maroons. I hope you are

just as cocky tomorrow. There you

go, Mel and Kochie. We are divided. As usual. Just ahead - should a gay man be allowed to become a dad? We'll hear from both sides of the debate. But straight ahead - Nuala has Sandra Bullock's secret to a successful marriage.

This is Sunrise with Kelly Clarkson performing live this Friday! (EXAGGERATED MOIST SNEEZE) CHILD: Hey, that's not the way to do it. You should: (SNEEZES) That's better. The E-File on Sunrise brought to you by 'New Idea', for all the latest celebrity news and more. It's time to open the E-file with Nuala. Sandra Bulllock has some sage advice for people looking to get married. What is it?

It is like movie star/

It is like movie star/marriage

counsellor. She was here promoting

her movie The Proposal and it

her movie The Proposal and it stars Ryan Reynolds and Golden Girls

favourite Betty White. Sandra has

been married for the last four years

and thought she would lift the lid

on what makes a marriage last. Blackmailing someone into marrying you, which is the only way to go. Because it's the only way you can make it stick. As long as you have something to hold over them, the marriage will last.

So that is the secret. We should let

Fifi know. She needs someone to

blackmail. She also thinks

experience is important. There is a

funny scene in the movie where Betty

White's character gives Sandra's

character a rather hands-on fitting.

I have to say hands down the best

second-base lover I had. Firm, tend

are, she spent time there. Most of

you guys get down to business. Betty

knows what a woman wanted and made knows what a woman wanted and made

sure I got what I needed. Is there

more of that interview? Yes. Expect the video soon. Kylie Minogue's little sister Dannii has scored a big pay day. What's the story?

Great news about Dannii. We have

been talking a lot

been talking a lot about 'Britain's Got Talent' but they are about to

start The X Factor. Dannii has just

been signed to return as one of the

four judges for $

four judges for $2 million. Last

year she was given such a hard time.

Not on the show but in the British

tabloids. She even broke down in

tears when one of the other judges

had a fight with her. And Sharon

Osbourne but that is the Aussie

spirit, get back in there and I am sure that $

sure that $2 million gives you a bit

of courage and having a boyfriend

like Kris Smith. What the difference

between X Factor and 'Britain's Got

Talent'? It is more like Idol. Gee,

If you've just tuned in, a national survey on our cooking habits shows mums are the workhorses who keep food on the table. Dads are the show ponies who cook less but make more of a fuss about it!

Fred puts it in perspective. She

cooks and I work. Get over it. He is

a brave man. And Holy says, dad

cooks every night and he never brags

about T so there are a few of us around. Good morning. Brazilian military planes have found a 5km path of wreckage in the Atlantic Ocean, confirming the Air France jet has crashed into the sea. Two French mini-submarines are now on their way to the site.

French and Brazilian military

aircraft have been scanning the area

around AF447 last known position. It

was spotted bright spots. A flight

saw many spots the ocean. It is

possible it was many small fires.

Brazilian aircraft report seeing

airplane seats and jet fuel and

other debris. A French military

spokesman told us that they thought

it was AF447. When the message was

received the position was given as

here. A NASA weather satellite took

this image half an hour later

showing a significant storm in the

area. The debris spotted by the

Brazilian air force was soun as 350

kilometres north. The search teams

has 30 days before it stops

signalling its beacon. They will

have a clearer idea of where to look

for it after the serial numbers are recovered. The World Health Organization says a pandemic is imminent as swine flu spreads rapidly across the world. Australia now has the largest number of swine flu cases outside northern America with more than 500 people infected. Victoria is the hardest-hit State with 12 schools to remain closed today. The 'Dawn Princess' has been turned away from New Caledonia

amid claims some of its passengers are infected. A Federal Liberal backbencher has been forced to apologise to a colleague

after a violent confrontation in Parliament House. Alby Schultz grabbed the throat of frontbencher Chris Pearce following a heated debate in the party room. Opposition Leader Malcolm Turnbull was far from impressed, forcing Mr Schultz to say sorry. An American class has been taught a lesson it'll never forget.

complete with a groom, bridal party and a host of young well-wishers. I just think it lets them know how much they mean to me. That they are a big part of my life. The class isn't invited on the honeymoon. In finance news: ,

Look how strong we were yesterday.

Heading towards 4,000. Remember we

were 3,

were 3,100 in March. That is a 30%

increase. Going gangbusters. Yesterday the Reserve Bank Board left interest rates on hold for another month.

Will we go into recession or not? Let's go to Savanth Sebastian from CommSec.

We had good figures and a lot of

economists are changing their minds

and say we may have positive growth?

It seems your bid to reject the

recession is working. Thank you! We

are expecting growth now of 0.

are expecting growth now of 0.2% for

the March quarter. An expansion of

the Australian economy, not the

contraction that has been talked

about. What that means is we may

have seen for the average Australian

that really last year - the second

half of last year we didn't see the

economy go anywhere and we are

starting to come out of the downturn

and showing improvement. It

vindicates the Reserve Bank holding

rates. They showed confidence by

keeping the rates on hold. They

talked about China showing signs of

improvement. The housing will show

growth. Stop dancing around this.

What do you think the figures will

show? Positive economic growth?

Kochie, we are expecting 0.

Kochie, we are expecting 0.2% and we

will keep an eye on it at 11:

will keep an eye on it at 11:30. We

appreciate you keeping your

proverbial eye on the numbers: The big department stores start their sales today. The response from shoppers is always a good insight into our economic confidence. Let's find out what to expect from Myer's Mitch Catlin. Good morning. How early did people start lining up?

They lined up about 6:00 this

morning and I hope you are right

that we are in positive territory

because the last couple of months we

have seen an improvement in retail

sales and hopefully the sales today

that last through the next four

weeks and catapult it further. I

hope the girls are right and I hope

the girls turn up today with 70% off

major brands. Traditionally it is a

little less than that. Get their

cards authorised before anything

goes through. We have had all this

possess mix lately. Has it changed?

What are people shopping for? There

has been a focus on apparel in the

slowdown. Menswear. When things pick

up men spend on themselves. We have

seen menswear up a couple million

dollars. Homewares, when people

start expanding what they have at

home and both those areas are doing

well. Today much of that stuff is up

well. Today much of that stuff is up to half price. That is another big

indicator for us. Blokes undies, you

got a sale on that? That is always a

good bellwether? Not great but there

are positive signs. Today and the

next four weeks will be a big

indicator. Back of 10 men's undies.

Good luck with that. It is the

reject the recession dancers. They

did it Queensland coach Mal Meninga is telling anyone who'll listen the Blues will stop at nothing to blunt the skills of his strike weapon, Israel Folau tonight. This subtle reminder appeared to be more about the referees sitting up and taking note than anything else. Definitely concerned about it, yeah, definitely, if it's an illegal play. They've got to be looking for that. The referees got be looking for illegal play in trying to take Izzy out for sure. Meninga hasn't been as vocal about who'll start in the back line with Folau with either Karmichael Hunt or Billy Slater tipped to wear the number one. Daniel Kerr's poor record at the AFL tribunal has been costly for the midfielder overnight. He failed to have a 1-game ban overturned for striking and will miss Sunday's match against Geelong at Subiaco. Western Bulldogs defender Brian Lake had better luck. He was cleared of a tripping charge while Carlton youngster Mitch Robinson had a rough conduct charge downgraded. Both players escaped suspension. Rafael Nadal's uncle has hit back at the local spectators who cheered when his nephew was eliminated from the French Open at the weekend.

He's called them stupid and claims they were only happy to see the world number one beaten because their players have failed to win at Roland Garros since 1983. On the court overnight - the man who ended Nadal's run, Swede Robin Soderling, continued his charge. He smashed another seed in Nikolay Davydenko. Fernando Gonzales downed third seed Andy Murray. While in the women's, world number one Dinara Safina bounced back

to beat Victoria Azarenka. Maria Sharapova bowed out. Australia has completed another successful warm-up match ahead of the upcoming World Twenty20. The Aussie beat New Zealand by 7 wickets and 4 balls to spare. Mitchell Johnson's was impressive, claiming 4/20 off four overs while Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke put on a 104-run stand.

A serve from Rafael's uncle. That is

what you want. French poor losers? Unbelievable.

Time to find out what's making news in showbiz with Nelson. Lindsay Lohan is set to have a fashion face-off?

You could say that New York City is

ahead of the fashion world when it

comes to America. The papers are

having a field day saying that

Lindsay Lohan is fast in ruining

other people's careers. There are

rumours that Lindsay is in talks

with Emanuel Ungaro and the head

designer. Esteban Cortazar is saying

designer. Esteban Cortazar is saying

it is ridiculous. That would be the

final nail in the kof fib. It is not

a PR move. It would be bad. He said

if Lindsay comes, he goes and he

will take his team with him. There

has been no comment from Lindsay

yet. It makes our life so simple. Soon -

you can use them to cook with

dinner. Maybe you can cook me dinner

one day. You are on. Thanks, Fifi. A Queensland man is causing controversy - he's gay, single and he's having a child using his sister as a surrogate. Now, it's understood his sister, who already has two children of her own, used donor sperm to become pregnant. Should these sorts of arrangements be allowed? Let's hear both sides of the debaten Let's hear both sides of the debate. Joining us is Jason Twarzon-McSheen, a gay dad who used a surrogate in the US, and Damien Tudehope from the Family Association. Good morning to you both. Jason, let's start with you. Why did you want to have a child?

It is a normal, natural thing to

want to become a father and my

husband and I have been married for

just over six years and we went to

the US and got into a surrogate

arrangement and had a baby and we

are proud fathers are proud fathers since. Was surrogacy your only option?

We were not allowed to adopt,

Australian law prevents that. Damien, Jason appears to be a loving committed father. What's your objection to gay parents?

The great debate we have is that you

get portrayed as having no

compassion. I have no doubt that

Jason is a fantastic person in

relation to his child and loves his

child enormously. Surrogacy and gay

adoption treats children as prizes

to be had rather than taking the

view that children have rights of

their own and the right to have a

mum and dad. Children are not

prizes. As much as Jason says I

always wanted to have a child and it

is a natural instinct, it doesn't

mean you have a right to a child. A

lot of people view children as their

right and in fact ignore the fact

that the children have rights and

one of those fundamental rights is

to have a mum and a dad. When you

start talking surrogacy and a sister

is involved, what are your views

there? You can't stop someone from

entering into a surrogacy

arrangement. You can stop a

commercial surrogacy arrangement

saying you will pay for that service and in

and in fact that is illegal. As the

artificial reproduction technology

act provides providing access to

reproduction techniques. Having said

reproduction techniques. Having said that, outside of that arrangement

nothing can stop them. If you do

that, you are doing it bearing in

mind only your own interests and not

necessarily the interests of the

child. If you fundamentally look at

what the arrangement delivers, it is

a child and you are saying in

a child and you are saying in circumstances in a homosexual

relationship I am purposely going to

deprive that child of a mother. It

is silly. The outcome of the child

is important. When it comes to kids

born out of IVF or surrogacy, it

doesn't matter if they have a mother

and father or two fathers or two

mothers. If they have one decent

parent they will be OK. If they have

two decent parents who provide a

proper environment for them, they

will be set. This first generation

of gay males where the oldest child

is seven or eight are showing that.

People like you are saying that gay

parents are selfish. But no children

choose their parents. They have no

choice. Gay parents plan their

parenting. It is a two or four-year

process. They work their behinds to

get their child in the world. Our

son Reuben wouldn't be here if his

two parents and the surrogates did

what they did. Viewers, let us know

what you think. Thank you both for your time. For decades, Aussies have had access to free health care. But by no means has it been a healthy system with operations cancelled and beds unavailable. Now authorities from at least one State are saying Medicare, as we know it, is on the way out. we'll be heading to a user-pays system. So is this the kind of reform we need? Let's ask our medical expert, Dr John D'Arcy. Good morning. Let's tackle the headline first. Are we heading to an American user-pays health system?

In many ways I think we are almost

there already. You know in general

practice, for example, if you want

to ensure that the patient gets the

doctor of their choice you ask if

they are insured. If they are,

they are insured. If they are, they go to the hospital of their choice.

If they are not, they go into the

big pot. If they are lucky they get

seen and when they are seen might be

a considerable amount of time. We

are almost there. Here you got a

state which is one of the worst in

sorting cysts out - This

sorting cysts out - This is New South Wales? New South Wales. It is

a cot case. It certainly is. We know

that nurses had to bring in their

own bandages. Approximately 1,000

cancer patients have died in this

State alone from 1996 to 20016

because they can't get radiotherapy.

Why can't they get it? Because we

don't have enough radiotherapy

units. We need to get the federal

and State Government to get it fix

it. Is there any merit in the US

health system? Anyone who travels there,

there, travels there with great trepidation because you don't want

to get sick. It is so expensive?

America has the best and the worst.

If you are wealthy and you are

insured you get the best service any

place in the world. They got 46

million people uninsured. 46 million

people who don't know where to go if

they get sick. No, it is not ideal.

We need a change. We need

We need a change. We need the Federal Government to come in in a

more wholesome way with the States.

The States realise they can't do it

on their own but we can't go down

the user pay way without

difficulties. And we don't want to

get to the US system? No, we

certainly don't. Let me share a

statistic with you. You know how I

am involved in the organ transplant.

Think of the number of people who

die on the roads every year. They

were telling me that more people die

waiting for a bed in intensive care

waiting for a bed in intensive care - so they can't get out of the

emergency room - more people die

because there's no bed in intensive

care than actually die on the roads.

That is how bad our hospital system

is. And we are putting money into

campaigns for road safety, which we

should do. Our hospital system is

falling apart and we are going into

peak season. Winter is the peak

season. Don't you think it needs

like a complete rethink. It needs

someone removed to look at it and

think outside the square. Health

Department doesn't change. You need

someone with a big stick come in and a "

a "I don't care what you think. a "I don't care what you think." I

will tell you what - I am starting

to learn about this. It is a nightmare. These days, lots of kids have mobile phones. But as a parent, how do you keep an eye on what they're up to?

New technology is letting mums and dads read their child's text messages and monitor their mobile use. Sunrise gadget guy Pete Blasina joins us now with more.

Parents are sitting up thinking " Parents are sitting up thinking "How

does this work?

does this work?" It is a software

development by My Mobile Watchdog.

It allows you - you have to be

authorised to go in. The child has

to let you come into the phone and

you can see emails, text messages,

MMS, any photos taken, etc. Look, it

is there. It will raise some really

interesting privacy questions. The

kid behind you - He is on his phone.

Do kids know they are monitored and

if they do can they then opt out?

Does a message pop up that says " Does a message pop up that says

"Your mum is watching you"

"Your mum is watching you"? When

they turn the phone on it

immediately gives the message that

your parents have access to it. You

may not have access at that

particular time but whenever the

phone is on and go to the next step.

It locks the phone if they don't

give you access. If they do give you

access, it is open for the parent to

come in. This technology could be

used in other ways - checking on

your partner or staff? It could.

Once the software is there. It is an

opt-in system. You are letting them

come into your phone. You can reject

them. It really does open a whole

bag of worms in terms of where you

go from there. It is an interesting

development. Also, if you think

about the kids side of it, there is

really very much an element of -

it's different for an 8-year-old or

9-year-old who has a mobile phone

and a 16-year-old or 16-year-old who

has a - 15-year-old or 16-year-old

who has a mobile phone. Thank you

for that. No difference between a

9-year-old and 15-year-old. They are

still your child. You as a parent I

think should know who they are

calling. Imagine how it would cut

cyberbullying down if parents knew

what their kids were sending. And if

they knew they were being supervised

and watched. Just as you supervise

kids normally, their play, their

behaviour to adults. All that stuff

in a physical sense. Why shouldn't

you be do it in a technology sense.

So much ahead. Everyone says

technology is taking kids into a

whole new domain. One of the reasons

is because we as parents haven't

caught up with the technology and I

think impose the same rules on

technology behaviour as we do on

physical behaviour and verbal

behaviour. Where do you get to the

point where you have to allow them

to have a little bit of

responsibility and trust that you

brought them up right. That say

point. Where does that age kick in?

I understand nine is different. But

at 15 you go you are on your own -

to a degree. I am not saying you

step back and let them go for it. I

don't know. Let us know what you

think. If in doubt, have an Maggie

friend. I reckon they are easier. It

is OK if your child has an Maggie

friend. It means they are creative.

I love this one. This is from Shane

in Queensland. "

in Queensland. "My Maggie friend's

name was Suzie. Mum told me we are

going to the train station and I

said we left Suzie at home. So we

went all the way home to get Suzie

probably for my mum's sanity.

probably for my mum's sanity." That

is really lovely. Would you have

done that? I would have certainly

tried to talk her out of it. From

Vickie. I had a Maggie friend called

Ting. Whenever I I broke something I

claimed Ting. My sister promptly

took Ting out under the mango tree

and shot him, or so she told me.

Funny thing si never mentioned him

Funny thing si never mentioned him

again. I do all the cooking and mow

the lawn too. That is such a

brotherly and sisterly thing to do. That is great. Grant Denyer's back behind this wheel. But this time he's not on a racetrack. We'll check what he's up to shortly.

the baby whisperer comes in. French mini-submarines are on their way to the site of the Air France crash in the Atlantic Ocean. Debris stretching for 5km has been found off the coast of Brazil. The Brazilian military says no bodies have yet been discovered. 228 passengers and crew were on board the flight.

Just days after the 'Pacific Dawn' was declared swine flu-free,

its sister ship may have infected passengers on board.

The 'Dawn Princess' has been turned away from New Caledonia after five people reported flu-like symptoms. The ship is now on its way back to Sydney where swabs have been sent for testing.

More than 500 people have now been diagnosed with the virus. A man who was killed after trying to break up a fight outside a Melbourne nightspot will be farewelled today. 29-year-old Luke Mitchell was stabbed to death a week ago minutes after trying to stop an attack.

Two men wanted over the murder are believed to have fled to Thailand. Defence Minister Joel Fitzgibbon has again been forced to correct his register of interests after failing to declare hotel accommodation. NIB Health Funds paid Mr Fitzgibbon's $450 hotel bill when he travelled to Brisbane for a State of Origin match last year. His brother, NIB's chief executive, was supposed to stay in the same room but later cancelled. I can only say that it is this confusion that led me to overlook the need to declare the sponsored accommodation. Earlier this year, Mr Fitzgibbon failed to declare overseas travel paid for by Chinese businesswoman Helen Liu. Former US first lady Nancy Reagan has revealed she still sees her former husband who died in 1994. A frail-looking Mrs Reagan appeared with President Obama overnight who signed into law the Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission Act.

Western Bulldogs defender Brian Lake was cleared of a tripping charge, while Carlton youngster Mitch Robinson had a rough conduct charge downgraded. Swede Robin Soderling has continued his brilliant form at the French Open overnight, downing another seed in Nikolay Davydenko.

Comeback queen Maria Sharapova tumbled out.

Aussie Sam Stosur takes on Sorana Cirstea in quarterfinals action tonight. Socceroos star Harry Kewell says Sunday's game against Qatar in Doha isn't about entertaining the fans. He claims the boys need to get the job done

the best way they know how to secure World Cup qualification.

Remember a draw or better will do

it. If we get that, we are through

to the World Cup. If not, we got two

more chances against Bahrain and

Japan. Get the job done, well done,

very impressed. I think you have

been told that I am not to touch

anything in the kitchen. There a

reason for that. It is great. Do you

have aspirations to become a chef?

Yes, when I become older. When I was at school

at school in the kitchen we were

making - it wasn't even a kitchen.

It was the tuckshop making scones.

Obviously things have come a long
