Savanth, how big is this risk?

Certainly some concerns on the

property side by the governor. You could take his speech as an economic

health check. He was being very

prudent trying to highlight risks

going forward and property is a

risk. We have seen what happened to

property prices. We have seen supply

of houses is really underpinning

when you look at demand. He has been

prudent and really putting out there

for public debate so authorities are

well aware of it and ensure we

well aware of it and ensure we don't come across the problem

come across the problem in a couple months time. He also said interest

rates could rise while unemployment

is still rising which is a surprise?

Yes, he did focus on the Yes, he did focus on the fact that

there are surprises on the economy

and the concern for the Reserve Bank

is to really support economic growth

but curtail inflation going forward.

We have seen the Reserve Bank has

been at the front end of the game.

There is a good chance when you look

at the market they are not looking

at rate cuts. We have reached a low

point and rate

point and rate hikes could happen a

lot earlier than people are

anticipating. It is looking like

rates will rise. There has been a

lot of stimulus thrown into the

market and it could come back to

bite us as Kochie said. Nathan Hauritz is now a strong chance of retaining his place for the third Ashes Test with the Edgbaston pitch expected to be spin-friendly. Australian selectors have been toying with the idea of picking four frontline pacemen for the match starting on Thursday but that now appears unlikely.

I think we could use a driver and I

think spin will play a part in this game. Misfiring paceman Mitchell Johnson looks likely to hold onto his place but faces a strong challenge from the in-form Stuart Clark. The men at the centre of Collingwood's ambitious new coaching setup, Nathan Buckley and Mick Malthouse, have dismissed talk the plan will strain relations between the pair. They'll work alongside each other for the next five years with Malthouse to coach the next two before handing over the senior role to Buckley and assuming a position as director of coaching. I've worked with Mick before, we know each other intimately and we know that it can work. I won't have to look over my shoulder. Those that know me realise I don't have to do that. Buckley admits he's taking a risk by taking on the revolutionary role. Roosters forward Willie Mason believes he has nothing to prove to incoming coach Brian Smith when his side takes on Newcastle on Saturday. The Knights coach will take over at Bondi Junction next season

and has already said Mason's free to leave if he wants to. But the former Origin star has more immediate concerns. I'm not really worried about who the opposition coach is this week.

We're just worried about just getting a win Outgoing coach Brad Fittler admits a win over the man who's taking his job would be extra sweet. Four more world records have tumbled at the World Swimming Championships in Rome but none belonged to superfish Michael Phelps. German Paul Biedermann relegated Phelps to second place in the 200m freestyle final. It's the American's individual first defeat at world or Olympic level since 2005. Aussie Emily Seebohm claimed bronze in the final of the 100m backstroke.

There is more on that. Michael

Phelps says he may not race again

until FINA changes the rules on the

suits. He says that is enough for

me. We should get a suit and race

against him. Sponsorship deals. He

has to deal with another company. I

reckon they should. Do the world

championships. Ban the suits and do

the world championships again.

Scratch the results. Next to the world

world record you put SE, suit-enhanced.

Imagine being allergic to ALL food not just one or two things. That's the reality for a 5-year-old boy and we'll get his story, next hour. But next - police searched the Las Vegas home of Michael Jackson's doctor as speculation grows about criminal charges over the singer's death. We'll go live to Nelson Aspen when Sunrise continues. I know that toddlers can be fussy eaters. So it's important to provide them and pre- and probiotics for a healthy digestive system. a unique scientific combination of essential nutrients The heat is on for Michael Jackson's personal doctor Conrad Murray. Police have searched his Las Vegas home. Nelson Aspen is following all these developments closely. Nelson, what are they looking for?

Some of the agents have left the

gated community and some are still there going through the house. They

are looking for any evidence that

might tie him to the drugs

administered to Michael Jackson that

may have killed him. Any evidence

that would fit that pattern would

make it a manslaughter case. It is

believed that Dr Murray was home

during the execution of this search

warrant. Why have they waited so

long to search his home. Why would

you wait so long to go to Conrad

Murray's house? You are right. They

looked in his Houston Texas office

last week. They are at the Las Vegas

home today. When the toxicology

report comes out and if we find that

there are drugs administered by

Murray tied to the toxicology

report, we may find a manslaughter

charge and we may see him arrested.

He has been cooperative. The news

reports are saying that Dr Murray

admitted to administering that

propofol which is an anaesthesia

drug which should only be

administered in hospitals. There are

reports that he fell asleep and when

he woke up he found Michael he woke up he found Michael Jackson

dead. It is getting more

controversial. And if someone is

under anaesthetic that you have to

be monitored by a machine and they

didn't have those? You would monitor

heart tack, IV drips

heart tack, IV drips and that is why

it administered in a hospital and

not a private home. In other entertainment news, who has George Clooney been spotted with?

You have Rob Thomas today. George

Clooney is known to like TV

presenter. He is now linked to an

Italian television presenter known

as Elisabetta Canalis. They have

been having a grand old time. He is

an international guy. He has tried

British, Italy, maybe Australia is

next on his list. It is not your

usual TV presenter bio. We prefer

head shots. There you go. Do

head shots. There you go. Do you have a fan club like that? Thanks,

Nelson. Talk to you soon. We've got a warning for travellers this morning - don't fall victim to a scam operating in Bangkok. We'll get the details, a little later. Next up, though, catch up on Fifi's adventures in Far North Queensland.

This is Sunrise on Seven. (SMASH!) (SQUAWKS) With a range of healthier options, you'll love the new you'l love the new Happy Meal choices. Our Goulburn Valley Fruit Fizz with sparkling water, or added sugar. Come in and enjoy some family time at McDonald's. People sell all kinds of stuff on eBay - even their jobs. Tomorrow we'll meet the guys willing to work for the highest bidder. Plus she's the Aussie who made it big in Hollywood with 'Transformers'. Rachel Taylor joins us to talk about coming home to make movies. That's Thursday on Sunrise. Coming up on Sunrise - can you believe anything you read in the tabloids? We'll get an inside view of the priorities in the press. But now Nat's here with the news. Good morning. Interest rates could rise by up to 1% next year even before unemployment reaches its peak. The head of the Reserve Bank has hinted an interest rate rise isn't out of the question as the Australian economy shows strong signs of recovery. Hopefully we're in a suitably timely way of returning to normal when the right time for that comes, whenever that is about which I don't want to speculate today. The Government says there are still many economic challenges ahead. The National Australia Bank is dumping some of its fees in a bid to improve its image and attract new customers. From October 1, there'll be no dishonour fees charged on overdrawn cheque and savings accounts. The move is likely to cost the bank $100 million a year with no new fees planned to replace it. The NAB says dishonour fees are the most complained about. It's hoped other banks will follow suit. The widow of a truck driver killed by a stray bullet has urged witnesses to come forward to help police solve the crime. Two teenagers have been charged in connection with Bob Knight's murder last month. A 16-year-old is accused of concealing knowledge of the crime. A 17-year-old was charged over a fight possibly linked to the shoot-out. But I still feel for their parents. I really do. Sounds stupid, doesn't it? Police want to speak with the driver and passengers of a white van seen near the shooting and later set alight. A decision is expected today

on whether Queensland teachers will be allowed to strike next Wednesday. The Government took the teachers' union to the Industrial Relations Commission yesterday in a last-bid attempt to avoid the strike. Half a million students and a million parents will not only be inconvenienced but robbed of a day's education. The union says the action's necessary to force the Government to negotiate a fair pay deal. Now to sport, here's Mark Beretta. Out of form paceman Mitchell Johnson looks set to retain his spot for the third Ashes Test after receiving a ringing endorsement from vice-captain Michael Clarke. Johnson had the unflattering figures of 0/107 in the recent tour match against Northamptonshire but Clarke believes the pace spearhead rediscovered his best form late in the game. He's on the way back. I think he's feeling more positive about how things are going. He's continuing to try to improve, as we all are.

With the Edgbaston pitch now expected to take spin, Nathan Hauritz is likely to retain his place. Brisbane welcomes back star trio Darren Lockyer, Karmichael Hunt and Sam Thaiday for Saturday's vital NRL clash with the Raiders. He's still missing some players but coach Ivan Henjak isn't complaining. It'd be nice to have the others as well but three is enough, I'll take anyone at the moment. The Broncos have lost six of their last seven games. Newly appointed Collingwood assistant Nathan Buckley admits he wasn't quite ready to take on a senior coaching role at this stage of his career. Buckley will serve a 2-year apprenticeship under Mick Malthouse before taking the reins. There's more that I can learn as an assistant coach, to dot the I's and cross the T's and have myself more prepared when I go into a senior role. Malthouse will become director of coaching when Buckley takes control of the senior side.

Phone switching to Holden. It means

Craig Lowndes is back on Holden. The

first time since 2001. Big, big

news. Yes, what they said. Rocks my

world. I knew it would. We will chat

over here. You guys chat over there.

Fifi, can you help us? You are in

Tully this morning. You did

Tully this morning. You did some whitewater rafting? Yes, I took to the white

the white water. I will show you

footage in a footage i. a

Tully is famous for being the

wettest town and sugar cane and

bananas and famous for whitewater

rafting. Yesterday I headed off with

R and R. I donned the pink helmet

and jacket. I have to say I don't

know what I was expecting. A leisure

Sunday stroll in a row boat but it

wasn't that. It was quite scary. You

could feel those rocks as you go

over them. Rubber is not as thick.

It was quite an adventure. Great

fun. I am glad I did it. It is one

of the things you can do in Tully.

Sunday we can go whitewater rafting.

I got some dancing to do instead. It

would be lots of fun. I will join

you, Fif. I will bring you more from

this great town in half an hour. See

you then. Thought of the Day is from

Vanessa in New South Wales. No

person can be a great leader unless

he takes genuine joy in the

successes of those under him. That

is a good one. Joke of the Day comes

from Tracy via Mark Beretta. A vampire bat comes into its cave

covered in fresh blood. All the other bats smell the blood and come

around wanting to know what is going

on. The vampire bat says " on. The vampire bat says "OK, follow me. on. The vampire bat says "OK, follow

me." Because he said bats speak like

the Count. "

the Count. "Follow me. I will show

you where the blood is.

you where the blood is." They go

down this valley and through the

forest and all the bats come around

him and stops and see this tree over

there? Yes, yes. Good, because I

didn't. Good one, Matty. You two

boys did well. Bats don't talk like

that. The bat is from Transylvania.

The Count is not a bat. I liked it.

He wears a cape. Next hour - the Beyonce song that sounds a lot like Kelly Clarkson. It's a huge scandal rocking the music world. After the break, though, Nathan Buckley talks about signing on with the Pies. This is Sunrise across Australia. And they were only $35, and guess where I got them from. Huh? Guess. Guess where I got them. Um... Ah. With two rashers of bacon, you can't walk past a delicious Double Bacon McMuffin for just $2.45. McDonald's new Value Picks menu - Macca's makes it easy. Talking footy, brought to you by BigPond sport. Collingwood has confirmed AFL's worst-kept secret - Nathan Buckley will return to the club that made him a star as assistant coach. He'll take over from Mick Malthouse in the main coaching role from 2012. Until then, they'll work together and they're confident there won't be any problems. I won't have to look over my shoulder. Those that know me realise

Those who know Nathan well enough know that I don't have to do that. Let's cross to the man himself, Nathan Buckley. Good morning. Congratulations. You've had a night to soak it all in. How do Tania and the two boys feel about your new job?

We have known about it since

probably Saturday, Saturday

lunchtime that that was the path

that we were going to go down. It

was an easy decision in the end but

it needed, you know, a heart to

heart with Mick to get to that

point. Look, I think from that

moment on it was a fairly easy

decision for me. Clearly it is the

best pathway for me to get into

coaching. Look, I am looking forward

to the beginning of 2010 and getting

stuck into it. You were the most

wanted man where you had senior jobs

thrown in front of you. Why Did you

decide to take the path you are and

not a senior role straight up? I got

a lot of ties to Collingwood. When I

first retired you sort of think

about what you are going to do next

and first step away from footy and

the passion to come back not as a

player but in another capacity. The lure to Collingwood was something

that was very strong and ultimately

the path was laid clear and as I

said it was quite an easy decision

once I got to that point, despite

all the speculation leading up to

it. Bucks, the dream job for you? No

doubt. I got a lot of strong

relationships in the footy club. I

know a lot about it already. Now I

get to spend time as a coach in a

coaching environment. I had exactly

zero days experience as a coach in

an AFL team. By the time 2012 comes

around, I will be two years better off. One of the points people keep talking about is how two strong minds like yours and Mick Malthouse's might co-exist.

Will there be times when it'll be like two rams butting heads and are you prepared to bite your tongue for a couple of years?

No, I won't bite my tongue. This is

how strong teams work. As a captain

I used to throw things to Mick

often. But once I walked out the

door once we decided where we were

going, I was 100% behind where he

wanted to go and that is exactly

what I will do as a coach. All that

speculation about two bulls comes

from ego, does one have a massive

ego and need to be heard. Look, I am

very much a team man and I am about

results and I will do everything I

can to help the Collingwood get the results. You're good mates with a lot of the Pies players. Can you still make the tough calls?

That is something that I work out.

Probably Voss is the best person to

answer that question. He has been

able to go back to the club that

able to go back to the club that he spent so much time just two years

after playing. By the time I make

the calls it will be four years.

That is a different dynamic. If I

didn't want to take the

responsibility, I wouldn't take the

role. What all Pies fans want to

know - when is the next premiership

coming? I think everyone wants to

know. We have played it low-key as possible and the club is in the

middle of a premiership campaign and

it is a massive game this Saturday

night with the Lions and that

night with the Lions and that is where the focus is and should be.

This information has gonna cross to

the general public and now they get

back to business and I look forward

to doing the same. From all your

mates here, a big congratulations.

We know how much it means to you and congratulations to the Collingwood

club in the way they handled it and

good to have the favourite son back.

Look forward to stay in touch. Yes,

that sounded sincere. Just don't

beat Geelong too much. Hear, hear,

we mean it. And you saw straight

through Beretts. Now he doesn't have

Beretts nagging him every week " Beretts nagging him every week "What are you going to do?

are you going to do?" Is that what I

sound like? Now you got the answer. Still to come - the legal row over America's octuplets. Can a court order stop them from being exploited? But next - the bank actually cutting fees. And Australia's favourite meal revealed. It might surprise you. I love living on the coast. I still surf every day. I've always lived life to the full. And I've never let anything stop me. But I'm always careful with the choices I make. So when it comes to finding pain relief I can trust to do its job while still being gentle on the stomach, well, there's only ever been one choice - Panadol. There's a change in the air at McCafe. Now we're freshly baking a new range of delicious pastries

in store throughout the day. So come and try a new freshly baked pastry at McCafe today. When we need a car, we call Thrifty - Australia's best-valued car and truck rental. What's got people talking, Nat? A bank actually cutting a fee is getting plenty of attention. The NAB will dump penalty fees charged on overdrawn savings accounts. The bank hopes to win new customers and improve its image.

The controversial fees will go from 1 October and cost the bank $100 million a year in revenue. Some hope other banks will be forced to match the NAB. So, will it improve the NAB's image? And will it make you swap banks? There's nothing like daylight saving to start a good argument. WA has seen the most recent debate but New South Wales farmers have reignited the whole discussion on the east coast.

They want daylight saving shortened by two months every year. It's not because it fades the curtains or stops the cows milking. Farmers say daylight saving is an inconvenience with many country kids leaving for school in the dark. Are you pro-daylight saving or anti-daylight saving? Email or SMS us.

Can you hear the arguments raging? " Can you hear the arguments raging?

"I have to come home and eat my breakfast in the dark.

breakfast in the dark." And others say "

say "You got to be kidding. How can

1% of the population dictate the rest of us?

rest of us?" Don't take the farmers

on. All the country kids who have to

start in the dark. You are either

really for it or against it. If you

are in the country, you are against

it and if you are in the city you

are for it. WA had three years of it

and they comprehensively voted it

out, country and city. Now last night's episode of 'Packed to the Rafters' is bound to prompt some discussion today. I don't want my child not to fit in. I don't ever want them to feel unloved or looked down upon or rejected. And they won't. We'll protect them from that. We can't protect them from everything.

That's Julie and Dave on 'Packed to the Rafters' last night, facing a real dilemma with their unborn baby. There's a one in four chance of Down syndrome and Dave's not sure he can cope.

It's a situation faced by many couples. Have you been through it? How did you cope? Let us know.

Did you have the tests? Did you make

a big decision? It is a very

personal decision. A lot of people

don't have tests, don't want to

know. I thought you had to have the

test. You

test. You don't have to do it. It is

one of those things that confronted

me when he first had Taylor. It is a

bit confronting to know. I know

people who haven't had any tests

because they think they are

invasive. Some don't have scans.

That is a choice too.

That is a choice too. If you have

the test, why are you having the

test? To make the decision. Tell us

if you have been there. Finally, have you planned dinner tonight? Chances are it's meat and three veg. New research on Aussie eating habits says the humble dish is still our favourite meal. Despite the success of 'MasterChef' one in five households serve chops or steak with salad or vegetables every night.

Next in order were a roast, spaghetti bolognaise and stir-fries.

Look where the barbecue comes in. I

You can't eat a barbecue. It is

easy. You can grill a chop and boil

up some vegies and up some vegies and Bob's your uncle.

It looks like a pretty good menu.

And the scary thing is you would eat

it all. You are not a good

indication because you would eat

anything. And spag bol. That is the de anything. And spag bol. That is the

default factor. And do double so I

can freeze some for the other night.

It gets better on the second day. It

gets better. Do you ever get to the

second day with your meals? In

relation to Mark Beretta, one notices your

Kochie is being Indiana Jones and I

NAB customers will no longer be slugged up to $30 for overdrawn bank accounts from October. But the decision to axe controversial dishonour fees could cost the bank around $100 million a year. Joining me now from Melbourne is NAB Group executive for personal banking Lisa Gray. Good morning, Lisa. what's prompted this decision?

it. Our people don't like to deal

from Tully in half an hour. Thank you, Fifi. See you in half an hour. Getting your kids to eat their greens can be a big task which often ends in tears. But what if your child was unable to eat a single mouthful of anything for fear it would make him or her extremely sick? This is what 5-year-old Kaleb Bussenschutt lives with every day and doctors don't know why. Let's meet Kaleb, his parents, Melissa and Scott, and his older sister, Madelen. A big welcome to you all. Melissa, let's start with you.

We can see Kaleb and Madelen, they

both look gorgeous. Tell us what

happens when he eats food? There is

a process that he goes through.

Let's say for example he eats

breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Throughout the day he will be incredibly restless, aggressive,

very, very cranky, continually

complains of a sore stomach and then

probably around 6:00 we go to the

toilet so we have chronic diarrhoea

with horrible stomach pain. And then

from there normally between 3:00 and

3:30 in the morning projectile

vomiting starts which lasts about an

hour. The last thing you want is to

see your child in distress. Does

that mean you don't feed him

anything at all? You feed him

through a tube via a drip always?

Yes, he has a mickey button on his

stomach and from there it gets

connected to a machine and the

machine feeds him 20 hours of 24

hours a day now. The logistics of

that I can only begin to imagine.

Scott, he is a lively little fellow.

He is giving you a run for your

money. Is there anything he can eat?

No, not a thing. If we call it

eating, the only thing that he eats

is ice. That is the only thing that

goes through his mouth. If you go

out for dinner to a restaurant, that

is all he can have. Yes, we limit

our trips to restaurants. Ce, of

course. It is not fair that he has

to sit there and watch us eat and he

has a glass of ice. Not only that,

he gets irritatable, he gets bored.

We limit trips to restaurants. The

story that broke my heart the most,

his 5th birthday recently, tell me

what happened. He what happened. He wanted a cake?

Yes, we organised a birthday party

for him that was not focused on food

and we gave him the option of

whether he wanted a birthday cake.

He said "

He said "Yes, I want one but my sister can eat my cake for me. sister can eat my cake for me." He

was able to have a birthday cake but

he wasn't able to touch it or eat

it. What are his mates like around

him? What sort of reaction does he

get? Hopefully they are all

understanding. Do your friends

understand that you can't eat? No.

They don't understand? The school

has been really, really supportive.

The taofers, the principal, the

pastor, they have been fantastic.

Kids, let's face it, kids can be

cruel. He is an easy target to be

picked on but the school are very

diligent in making sure that Kaleb

is safe and Kaleb understands that

he is special. We get a lot of

support from the school. What

happens now - sorry, I was going to

say. You have seen a myriad of

doctors and they have consulted colleague upon colleague. What does

the future hold? Do they have any

idea? Do you have any idea? We don't

know. Essentially they say that

Kaleb is a very complicated case. We

don't know what the future will hold

for him. We don't know if we will

find a couple foods he can eat some

day. The future is unknown. We

really don't know. The problem is

that from the age of 18 months until

the age of 5 he has become worse and

worse. We don't know what is going

to happen with him. I know you are

out to raise money for research. All

the best. Melissa and Scott, we

appreciate your time and getting the

family up this morning. Madelen and

Kaleb, gorgeous to meet you. They

are divine. He is a gorgeous little

boy. I hope everything works out.

Mel, we are doing the charity bike

ride from Melbourne to Adelaide. Are

you interested? I can ride to the

end of my driveway and that's it. If

it can't be me, we will

it can't be me, we will offer you

support somehow. Thank you. Aussies heading to Thailand are being warned about a scam said to be targeting foreign tourists at Bangkok Airport. The so-called "zigzag" scam is apparently trapping travellers by accusing them of shoplifting. Our reporter Aela Callan is in Bangkok. Aela, how does the scam work?

It is called the zigzag because they

are zigzagged between various

officials after being caught out

doing something wrong and have to

pay money for their freedom out of a

Thai jail. Tell us about the latest

victims. Lin was in Bangkok's main

airport when she was allegedly

caught on camera stealing a wallet

in a duty-free shop. She was taken

by security guards and they didn't

find a wallet. They were taking to -

taken to holding cells and split up

and they were interrogated and still

doesn't find the wallet and they

didn't know anything about it. They

were held overnight. The next

morning they were given access to an

interpreter which would cost them

8,000 pounds or close to $

8,000 pounds or close to $10,000 and

then they were told to withdraw

money from their ATMs and they were

be taken to a hotel where they were

watched and contacted by the embassy

without their passports. They

managed to get to a taxi and

arranged a Thai lawyer and the

lawyer said it would take a long

time to fight this. They were told

to pay the money and they did. Mr

Ingham missed his mother's funeral

and are seeking compensation. It

sounds well organised. Any other

public - any other cases made

public? Since their case came to

light there is a danish and Sri

Lankan reported something similar.

Judging by the number of letters to

payers in Bangkok it looks like

others have been caught up. No other

Australians have been caught up yet.

Given that dozens of Australians

come up here there may be a scam

that others may have been caught up

in. It is worthwhile to note to keep

your eyes open when travelling

through Bangkok airport. It is a

very, very scary prospect Seven

being stitched up in Bangkok. Or any

other place. Let us know your experiences. Police investigating the death of Michael Jackson are closing in on the singer's personal doctor. They have executed another search warrant on the Las Vegas home of Conrad Murray. Nelson Aspen is following the latest developments closely. Nelson, do we know what they were looking for?

They are looking for any and all

evidence that could tie Dr Murray to

a mabs charge if that actually ends

up happening. This is in a great way

a preemptive strike. The LAPD

doesn't want to leave any gaps in

the investigation. They want to have

all their Ts crossed and Is dotted.

At 9:00 local time they surprised him with

him with a visit to his gated

community at his Las Vegas home. The

last we heard they are still there

and looking for anything drug-wise

with the anaesthetic that killed

Michael Jackson. We hear they are

going to back to the doctor's office. Is there a general

office. Is there a general feeling

that they are not so much in a hurry

but they are trying to nail somebody

on Michael Jackson's death here.

Yes, it is a criminal investigation.

Will it become a mabs investigation?

That is what we will wait to find

out once the toxicology reports are

released, probably later this week.

Thank you very much. We will keep

you updated on

you updated on that story. There

could be an arrest sometime today

Queensland is the mother of twins.

Her twins are just like Kaleb and

they are allergic to call food.

Because our twins are young we hope they tolerate some foods in the

future. The best-case scenario is

three to four foods and maybe up to

10 for life. Just like Kaleb's

Plus the Beyonce song with a familiar sound. (SINGS 'HALO') Is it the same as a Kelly Clarkson single? You can have a closer listen at 7:50 on Sunrise.

Good morning. Debate over what is a murder in the capital. The Government wants to change the Crimes Act.. to bring us in line with other states. The ACT's the ONLY jurisdiction where intent to seriously hurt someone.. doesn't fall under murder. But Barrister Shane Gill's against the changes.. he says it'll make the law too complicated.

Police will take a smashed car on a display tour of colleges around Canberra.. to highlight the dangers of speeding and drink-driving. The wrecked car comes from a crash.. which killed a teenager in June.. and sent a man to jail. ACT Health will today donate used medical equipment to hospitals in Fiji. The Wallaroos train at the AIS .. ahead of their must win World Cup qualifier match.. against Samoa next week. And the Raiders gear up for Saturday's match against the Broncos. Halfback Mark Herbert's out with a broken hand. More at 11. With a range of healthier options, you'll love the new you'l love the new Happy Meal choices.

Is it exactly the same as Beyonce? We'll compare them soon. But now Nat's got the 7:30 update. NAB says its decision to axe its controversial dishonour fee will make the bank more competitive. From October customers will no longer be charged $30 for an overdrawn cheque or savings account. The bank stands to lose $100 million a year.

We're very clear this is a final decision. We're not looking to recoup this fee anywhere else. Around 700,000 NAB customers are penalised for overdrawn accounts each year. It's responsible for the majority of client complaints. The Federal Government says the economy isn't out of the woods yet despite a more positive message from the Reserve Bank. Governor Glenn Stevens says

Australia's downturn may not be as bad as expected and probably won't be the worst since the Depression. Finance Minister Lindsay Tanner says the Government's not declaring victory yet. We're by no means certain where things will head in the second half of this year. Unemployment will still continue to increase and we've got a lot of big problems in front of us to deal with. The Government could be facing a double whammy

of rising interest rates and rising unemployment heading into the next election. Police hold fears for the safety of a Sydney schoolgirl who disappeared yesterday afternoon. 12-year-old Heather Brooke was last seen leaving a high school on Fifth Avenue in Blacktown at about 3:30pm. She was wearing maroon school pants and a fleecy top. Police say her disappearance is out of character

and they're appealing for public help. A Sydney taxi company has come to the rescue of a Melbourne business destroyed by fire. The fierce blaze ripped through the Collingwood headquarters of Silver Top Taxis yesterday morning. Staff and driving students managed to escape unhurt but millions of dollars worth of communications equipment and a collection of antique taxis was destroyed.

We lost a lot of old museum pieces in the fire and we've lost a lot of other things but the important this is that all the staff are well. Sydney's Premier Cabs, which was about to install new hardware, has sent it down to Silver Top instead. It's hoped the new booking system will be up and running by this afternoon.

In finance news - there were mixed results on Wall Street overnight.

Time for sport, here's Beretts. Paceman Mitchell Johnson looks set to retain his spot for the third Ashes Test after receiving unqualified support from vice-captain Michael Clarke. Johnson had the ordinary figures of 0/107 in the recent tour match against Northamptonshire but Clarke believes he rediscovered his best form late in the game.

He's on the way back. I think he's feeling more positive about how things are going. He's continuing to try to improve, as we all are. With the Edgbaston pitch now expected to take spin Nathan Hauritz is likely to retain his place. Collingwood assistant coach Nathan Buckley admits he's taking a risk by committing to the Pies for the next five years. Buckley will work under Mick Malthouse for two years

before taking on the senior role at the end of 2011. The Queensland rugby league says it's unable to substantiate allegations of drug use by its players in the lead-up to State of Origin 3. Players reportedly used a dangerous homemade party drug during Origin camp.
