But first, a quick check of today's weather. Around the capitals: rain in Brisbane. Fine for Sydney. Chance of thunderstorms in Canberra. Few showers in Melbourne. Rain periods in Hobart. Adelaide will be partly cloudy. when Sunrise continues. Fifi has the weather in detail live from the monster skate park when Sunrise continues. I said I'm not leaving this spot and I said I will call the police because I want my Western Burger done right. Now, is that so hard?

Voted on by the players, Ablett is the first to accept the Leigh Matthews Trophy three times running. He won by more than a hundred votes from Collingwood midfielder Dane Swan. Yeah, I don't know what to say. Um, yeah, I just, ah, guess I come along tonight to just enjoy the night and, yeah, I don't know what to say! Ablett's father Gary Ablett Sr also won the trophy in 1993. The AFL has confirmed Carlton skipper Chris Judd remains eligible for the Brownlow Medal even if he's suspended for making contact to the face of Brisbane's Michael Rischitelli. Because Brownlow voting does not involve finals or preseason matches, Judd will also be eligible for next year's medal. And Hawthorn president Jeff Kennett wants the Hawks to be the first to field a woman in its senior side. The call has received a lukewarm reception by some of the game's greats. Under current AFL rules, males and females can't play football together after the age of 14. South Sydney has launched an investigation into an alleged altercation between the head coach and a player on Sunday night. Rabbitohs forward David Far-logo reportedly punched coach Jason Taylor while drinking at an inner-Sydney hotel. The news came soon after NRL boss David Gallop called for players to focus on the finals series. While we acknowledge that we've got work to do on a range of fronts off the field, hopefully over the next few weeks we get to just focus on the tremendous footy that our players have been providing. Far-logo is leaving the Rabbtohs to take up a contract with English Superleague side Huddersfield. The Melbourne Storm will fight a grapple tackle charge given to forward Adam Blair in a desperate bid to clear him for Friday's qualifying final against Manly. He's copped a grade-one dangerous contact infringement for a so-called 'crusher' on Warriors captain Michael Luck. And the Dragons are standing behind their decision to play Sunday's final at Kogarah despite being able to attract bigger crowds and ticket sales at a larger venue.

It follows a dramatic few weeks for the heavily pregnant reality TV star, whose former fiance DJ AM was laid to rest last week. For all the details, let's go to Nelson Aspen in Hollywood. Nelson, do we know how Nicole is doing? Moment She is due at the moment. It could

it with anyone else. Joel wants a

She likes the Aussie boys. Why not? He must be good. Good morning. Three British Muslim men have been convicted of planning to smuggle liquid-based bombs onto aircrafts and detonate them midair. The men plotted to blow up seven commercial planes from London to North America in 2006. The foiled terror plot could've killed thousands of people. This was a particularly horrendus plot, which would've led to murder and mayhem on an unimagineable scale. Four other men were acquitted. Their arrests led to strict airport security changes worldwide, including restrictions taking liquids onboard planes. The Victorian Government has backed away from plans to hand Crown Casino an extra 150 gaming tables. The State's Opposition parties threatened to block the move, claiming the Government hadn't assessed the impact on problem gamblers. Fairfax says the Government has now asked gaming regulators to look at the deal. If given the final go-ahead, it'll mean the casino's largest expansion in 10 years, increasing the number of tables from 350 to 500. It's claimed murdered Sydney businessman Michael McGurk was seen in the New South Wales Parliament just two days before he was shot dead. News Limited has quoted an unnamed MP who told police he saw a man fitting Mr McGurk's description in Parliament House last Tuesday. The MP says the man claimed to have information two Government Ministers. that could bring down two Government ministers. A tape owned by Mr McGurk containing allegations of corruption against senior labor MPs is currently being investigated. A British rower has completed the second leg of her mission to become the first woman to row solo across the Pacific.

Nat has been bringing you the news item of Samoa, changing direction in

their - Changing the side of the

road that they drive on. Rob sends in this joke - well, another news

item. He says cocky - Sometimes.

Reports coming - coming in that Ireland is following Samoa's lead but to avoid any confusion only

buses and trucks will change for the

first month. Frank in Victoria says

Samoa is not the first. Ireland did

it with odd numbers did it on

Saturday and even numbers on Sunday.

We are going to go live and see how

it is going. I would be more worried about pedestrians because you are

looking in one way. And entire villages are deciding not to do it.

I am sure we will get the lowdown

this morning. We will cross live to

Samoa later this morning. Coming up - where is Australia's worst road? And we'll meet the young Aussies who've done us proud at the Tradies' Olympics! But next, the push for women to play in the AFL. Is Jeff Kennett on to a good thing? Our debate follows the break on Sunrise. Talking sport, brought to you by BigPond sport. The South Sydney Rabbitohs have launched an investigation after one of their star players king-hit coach Jason Taylor. Kiwi forward David Fa'alogo says he retaliated after Taylor punched him in the stomach. So, has another player stepped out of line? Let's check in with Jim Wilson. We are also joined by special guest, Collingwood captain, Nick Maxwell. Good morning, guys. Jim, is this a disappointing end to the NRL season?

Mad Monday is living up to its reputation. Not just the players but the coach. I can't imagine Roo or

Wayne Bennett. Manly can the - did the right thing. On Monday they hire

a unit and get a keg. Stay there. Put yourself in compromising

positions. I know they want to let

their hair down. Both player and

coach are at fault here. They have the support of Russell Crowe and

various others. The player won't be

there. After what happened yesterday

I don't blame him for getting on the

plane. Brendan Fevola involved in another mad Monday incident, a Carlton club superstar, rolling out a sex toy. We are in a by-gone ea. Collingwood are facing a do-or-die match against Adelaide this weekend. Nick, how are the boys preparing for the match?

How did they pull up against the

Saints? It is only a second day. We will look at St Kilda and Adelaide and keep our winning streak against them because we beat them last time.

What did you think of St Kilda? They are very good. We had a good start

and we thought a real chance and

they were so good and that is why

they are 20 going through the season. Hawthorn president, Jeff Kennett, he has a dream of seeing a woman play in the AFL one day. Boys, could girls ever take the field in the AFL.

That is where soccer has a jump.

Teenage girls. It is a real flavour

of the month. I got no dramas with

it. We got the commission and Jill

Lindsay is a powerful administrator

and done a terrific job at Decades. Jeff certainly throwing things out there. Nick? It is probably a good decade before getting it through.

Get them in school and make sure

they are playing. When it comes to clubs, yes, it will make it good but

you want them to play as the men do.

Good to have a chat boys. Talk to

you later. Can you send me down one

of Fifi's umbrellas? Tough it out.

Let us know what you think about the

AFL players, a female taking to the

field. What do you think? It's up to

the players. I don't see why. But

I'm not player so I don't know. There are a few girls on Nick's Oz kick. If the blokes don't mind, it

is their call. If they are good

enough, why not. You changed your

tune a bit since the commercial

break. I will bite my tongue. That's a first. Shortly, what happens if you're told to retire before you're ready? Plus, the lion that got a bit too rough with a TV reporter. We've got the video. But after the break, is this Australia's worst road? And can you beat it? You're watching Sunrise on Seven. When we need a car, we call Thrifty - Australia's best-valued car and truck rental. Now, the residents of Bellingen Shire in New South Wales reckon this is Australia's worst main road. They say a dirt section of the Dorrigo-to-Coramba road produces massive amounts of dust. Their homes get blanketed every time a vehicle passes by. The road crosses the Bellingen Shire boundary but they say dust is only a problem on the Bellingen side. The council says it does what it can with limited government funding for roads. So can you beat it? Tell us about your bad road. Send us the evidence. Email your photos or video to our soapbox.

Obviously a lot of rural roads. We

heard there are some in major

metropolitan areas. I wonder who

determines which are asphalted or

not. We are after Australia's worst

road. Send us a photo too if you can. What's got people talking, Nat? Shane Warne and his ex-wife Simone Callahan are big news across the country. They're building a new home in Melbourne, at Sandringham, not far from where Warney grew up. They're expected to bulldoze the house there right now and replace it with a family pad, complete with underground carpark, pool and home cinema. Shane and Simone rekindled their romance late last year and this is the latest step. So, are they proof a second chance can work?

Second or third, I think? They are

meant to be together and for the

sake of the family. That is nice. Also making news, claims tourists are using Uluru as a toilet. A tour company says visitors are taking toilet paper on the climb to the top and doing their business along the way. This is the clever headline from the 'Northern Territory News'. The claims are likely to intensify calls for Uluru to be closed to the public. At the moment, submissions are being

made to Peter Garrett whether to

close it or not. There are signs

saying that the traditional owners

would prefer you not to. 100,000 or

so climb it every year. You wouldn't

expect that problem from the people who climb it. One of the most searched stories on the internet is the lion filmed mauling a reporter. A TV reporter sent to play with a 1-year-old lion in South Africa found himself in a bit of trouble. He was shooting a tourism video with the cub Mapimpan whose name means little baby. But the lion got a bit rough, biting the reporter's leg and targeting his face. It all ended when the journalist broke free from the animal's grip and left the cage. He suffered a few puncture wounds to his leg. We'll have more on this later this morning. He was rubbing the lion's belly when it decided to bite at his leg. " it decided to bite at his leg. "This did not feel like playing" did not feel like playing", says the reporter. We often sort of joke

about having a job on some of the travel shows, being an Ernie Dingo, Tom Williams, look at the daifrng

Thought of the Day - don't rub a lion's belly. Also later this morning, an amazing coincidence. Two women from opposite sides of the world who have never met are living parallel lives. They've written a book about it. The two Julie Ann Daveys share exactly the same name, job and interests. And now they also share each other as best friends. We'll meet them after 8:00. But in the meantime, share your best coincidence with us. We got one from Sharon. She was picking up a copy of Psychiatric

America and found an article by

herself. She got in contact with him

and now she exchange letters and Christmas cards. She tracked him down. Have they got the same number of children? They both have a degree in science. You could have a good conversation on astro physics. Any

other David Koches you have met? No. Never. All

Never. Although there is a comedian. Although every other bald guy sent

that attractive so that is not bad.

He goes, is this when I look like? After the break, this morning's news and weather. And the midair bomb plot that changed the way we fly. Then, told to retire. Can you be forced to give up work? And the road that's being called Australia's worst. We'll find out what can be done to fix it, next on Sunrise. A bit cloudy in Melbourne today.

This morning. It is sort of stating

the obvious, isn't it? I think it is

going to clear up a little bit more

in the afternoon. Top of 15. Now, still to come this Sunrise - These men intended to bring down several aircraft in a short space of time, indiscriminately killing hundreds of innocent people. The terrorist plot that changed the way we fly. Three men found guilty of planning to blow up planes with liquid explosives in drink bottles. This morning on Sunrise, what could have been a midair massacre. Also, it's dusty and dangerous. But is this Australia's worst road? Plus, the lion that got a bit too rough. How a travel reporter bit off a little more than he could chew while shooting a tourism video. And the popular priest told to resign because he's turning 75. Why Father Bob Maguire wants to keep on working and what his case means for the rest of us as this Tuesday edition of Sunrise continues. Hello and thanks for tuning in. A busy hour ahead. Let's get under way with the news from Nat. Good morning. Three British Muslim men have been convicted over a murderous plot to blow up transatlantic passenger jets. The trio planned to kill thousands of people on flights from London to North America by setting off bombs disguised in drink bottles. It led to an unprecedented security crackdown in airports around the world. (EXPLOSION) It would have been a midair massacre. At 30,000 feet, everyone onboard would have been killed. VIDEO: Enough is enough. We have warned you so many times to get out of our land, leave us alone but you persisted in trying to humiliate us. These suicide bombers aimed to wipe out hundreds, possibly thousands of innocent lives. The discovery of the plot changed the way we fly. Armed officers were drafted into Heathrow. All passengers were banned from carrying liquids in case they were bottle bombs. Today the jury found Abdulla Ali, Assad Sarwar and Tanvir Hussain guilty of conspiring to make liquid bombs which they would have used to blow up seven transatlantic jets. This was particularly horrendous

that would have led to murder and mayhem on an unimaginable scale.

They were going to wait until the

flight was mid Atlantic before

assembling and detonating the bombs. The idea was to let them - the idea was to get on more flights with a

string of mid a explosions. Scientists at the national Forensic Explosives Laboratory reconstructed the bombs, graphically demonstrating their lethal power. A major manhunt is on for a sex attacker who assaulted a 12-year-old girl at a Sydney high school. The girl spotted the man acting strangely near bins at Macarthur Girls High School in the city's west yesterday morning. She was knocked to the ground and indecently assaulted. The offender, wearing a mask and hooded jumper, got away when the girl ran for help. Police say the girl is recovering well after spending the night in hospital. There are fears babies' lives could be at risk if the Victorian Government fails to guarantee whooping cough vaccinations for new parents. The State Government is considering withdrawing its support for a program that pays for vaccinations. Australia is in the grip of a whooping cough epidemic and three babies have already died this year. Studies show 50% of infants with the infection caught it from their parents. 40 people have been evacuated from a western Sydney unit block as fire broke out early this morning. Crews arrived at the 6-storey Marsfield building around 2:30am to find a top-floor apartment well alight. They managed to get everyone out safely before putting out the fire. The unit sustained major damage and part of the roof has caved in. Investigators aren't yet sure how it started. Three teenagers have been arrested over an assault in Melbourne after leaving something of a bread crumb trail for police to find them. It's alleged the trio attacked four other teenagers at inner city Brunswick around 1:30 this morning. They then drove off in this blue sedan but mounted a curb and burst two tyres. The rims left a gauge in the road which police followed before catching them. A 17-year-old boy is expected to face charges, including assault and driving while unlicensed. Samoans are trying to break a 100-year-old habit of driving on the right-hand side of the road. The tiny Pacific nation switched to the left this morning despite howls of protest from locals. It's a feat no country has attempted in almost 40 years - switching traffic from one side of the road to the other. And this morning the tiny Pacific nation of Samoa is going from the right to the left. The timing is right for us. Critics have been predicting chaos, claiming the change has been pushed through without consulting the people or enough preparation. If only there was a delay so that Government can finish everything, it would be more safe. The Government wants to bring Samoa into line with Australia and New Zealand, giving it access to cheaper car imports. But it's extremely unpopular among Samoa's 180,000 residents with fears of carnage on badly-maintained roads as drivers struggle with the change. I think the economic arguments surely cannot be balanced against the risks to peoples' lives. I'm not sure whether cheap vehicles is actually something that a small developing island nation like ourselves would like. Bus drivers are threatening to strike and entire villages have vowed to ignore the road switch altogether. Others are hoping for a bit of help from above. To take us through this moment of our lives so we can be able to survive, we can be able to continue to wake up next week and next month, we are OK. British designers trying to limit the cost of fashion parades have treated London communters to a stylish surprise on the Underground with the carriage doubling as a catwalk. Models showcasing this season's hottest fashions added a touch of flair to an otherwise dull trip. Absolutely amazing. I haven't seen anything like it on the tube. It's so random! It's amazing, though. The models hopped on and off at different stations for the pop-up fashion show to promote the start of High Street Fashion Week. In finance news: Wall Street was closed for the Labor Day long weekend. Time for sport, here's Beretts. Geelong superstar Gary Ablett has created history, voted the AFL's Most Valuable Player for a third straight season. Voted on by the players, Ablett is the first to accept the Leigh Matthews Trophy three times running. He won by more than 100 votes from Collingwood midfielder Dane Swan.

Ablett's father, Gary Ablett Sr, also won the trophy in 1993. The AFL has confirmed Carlton skipper Chris Judd remains eligible for the Brownlow Medal even if he's suspended for making contact to the face of Brisbane's Michael Rischitelli. Because Brownlow voting does not involve finals or preseason matches, Judd will also be eligible for next year's medal. The Melboure Storm will head to the judiciary in a desperate bid to clear Adam Blair for Friday's qualifying final against Manly. Blair was hit with a grade one dangerous contact infringement for a so-called 'crusher' on Warriors captain Michael Luck. And the Dragons are standing behind their decision to play Sunday's final at Kogarah despite being able to attract bigger crowds and ticket sales at a larger venue. We've earned the right to play a home semifinal. If it's tiny advantage, we're entitled to that. Tickets go on sale this morning. Ricky Ponting says his decision to quit international Twenty20 cricket will take him one step closer to a successful Ashes tour in 2013. Ponting says the extra rest will prolong his Test and one-day career. Over the last couple of years I've found it increasingly difficult to play all three forms of the game at the level that I want to play them. Ponting is heading back to England to play the last four games of the one-day series. Aussie duo Carsten Ball and Chris Guccione are through to the quarterfinals of the US Open doubles. The stars were out this morning to witness teen sensation Melanie Oudan follow up Sunday's shock elimination of Maria Sharapova with a 3-set marathon against another Russian, Nadia Petrova. COMMENTATOR: Oh, she let it go! (CROWD ROARS) The 17-year-old won 1-6, 7-6, 6-3. Soon on Sunrise - how old is too old to be working?

to you soon. Melbourne's most famous priest is proving he's definitely not the retiring type. Father Bob Maguire has vowed to fight Catholic Church orders suggesting he call it quits. Nick McCallum explains. Father Bob has always been different... In memory of other priests too who have got the pink slip. ..but now he's really hurting. Deva-sta-ted. This letter from Archbishop Denis Hart demands Father Bob's resignation when he turns 75 next week. No place for old men just now because they're going around culling us. Not killing, culling us. 'Cause we don't conform to the model. In South Melbourne for 36 years, he's never conformed. Working with kids, officiating at underworld funerals, appearing on TV shows. This text from a street kid he saved 30 years ago. A success story? Well, she's alive and she's always ringin' me up leavin' text messages to say "Good on you. It's Father's Day." Catholic law dictates when a priest hits 75, he must offer to resign. But Archbishop Hart stressed today it's up to him to decide if he accepts the resignation. But Father Bob's mobilising ground troops in his holy war to stay here. His parishioners. We don't know what we're going to do without him. Yes, but I'm a pain in the ass sometimes. No, you're not. All the best. But the question is - can you be forced into retirement? Workplace lawyer Sian Ryan.

Can people be forced to retire? I

should say I am not an expert in

Canon laws. The church are applying

their own rules and saying they

require a retirement at age 75. The

relationship between a church and a

priest is not what you normally

characterise as an

characterise as an employer-employee relationship where they talk about

ordaination where in a

ordaination where in a workplace you

talk about a contact. Somewhere in

their rule book saying that they require retirement at age 75 sounds

unusual because look at the Pope who

was employed at the age 75. Are there circumstances where a forced retirement is understandable? In the

past. We had a compulsory age of retirement and retirement and it has been abolished

and it has been changed as recently as this year. As a norm you can't have a required retirement age. There are some exceptions. Some the

most notable exceptions are federal judges. State judges are judges. State judges are slightly older. Some statutory and some very

senior service type of roles. If

there is a position that you can't

cope with by reason of age, physical, mental astuteness that may not be compatible with not be compatible with people of age. Specific rirlts such as you

need a driver's licence. Generally, you can't require someone to retire

because of age? What can you do if employer taps you on employer taps you on the shoulder and retire. Can Father Bob do

anything? If he is capable and wants

to work, why would you want someone to retire? There is a real national

policy to key those. If you are tapped on the

tapped on the shoulder the law is on your side S you

your side S you may have to prove

your mental capacity and that would

be reasonable but you don't have to

go. Thank you Sian. No problem. It's a title no area would want to lay claim to - having the worst main road.

But residents of Bellingen Shire in New South Wales reckon they have it. They say a dirt section of the Dorrigo to Coramba road produces massive amounts of dust. Their homes get blanketed every time a vehicle passes by. The road crosses the Bellingen Shire boundary but they say dust is only a problem on the Bellingen side. The Council says it does what it can with limited government funding for roads.

Should people have to put up with the dust? And what can you do if your local road isn't up to scratch? We're joined now by the man who made that video, Andrew Hunter, along with NRMA president Wendy Machin. Good morning to you both. Andrew, how are you affected by the dust?

Well, as you can see from the video images, it's - it's - when the

weather is against us, it is just

unbearable. It just destroys our

lifestyle. Tell us how busy this

road is because a lot of people would say " would say "I have driven on

something worse than that. This is

designated as a main road? We are

not entirely sure. It was road 120

and a part of the road was declassified and the State Government handed back that was a basket case and it's a main alternate route between

alternate route between Dorrigo and Coramba. What the council's excuse? They put up rate and we are getting flooded with stimulus packages. Why

can't they fix it up? We have been

struggling with it and we have lived in the bush for 30 years and we are not strangers to bush living. I got

a report from the previous shire

engineer and he admitted the quality of the material they are using to

surface the road doesn't have any

binding. It is not holding the gravel together and it turns the

road to talcum powder. A lot of

people get frustrated like Andrew by

the state of the roads. What can they do? Right now technology allows

people to do what he has done is

take your own video clip and post it. We set up on a website like

YouTube and we find people are doing the same. We had an issue in Hunter Valley area and they did just the same. We had an issue in the

this and it got some attention but

at the end of the the day it comes

down to dollars. You are in Andrew's area. Is it good to go to the NRMA and you will take it up? Yes,

because a lot of the groups have the same feeling about the roads and we

have participated in a star rating

system for our roads and it is just

a matter of whether it is one star

rated or five star rated and we use

that to get roads in a betor state.

Wendy, before I let you go - can you

get stuck into the petrol coils

today? Evidence in the last week,

the Singapore price which they use

as the benchmark has come down and

our price has gone up where it should have come down. We should

speak up and we have had one of the less than expected benefits is the

Aussie dollar. If they do anything

unfair, you bet we will be on them.

Yes, can you do that? Come

Yes, can you do that? CommSec came

out with a report this morning

saying gone up. That annoys me. I

filled up yesterday and I thought we

bring you the oil price every day

and the Aussie dollar and I was

paying more than I was at this time

last week. We will keep following

it. We've got an update on a story we brought you last week. Fiona Sing told us about her plans to win custody of her remaining IVF embryos. They were in storage when her relationship broke down and her former partner doesn't want them implanted. Fiona was looking for a barrister to take on the case and one from Brisbane has come forward. They'll meet soon to discuss the next step. To entertainment news, fans of Angelina Jolie will get a chance to see a whole lot more of the star. Some very revealing un-seen footage of the Oscar winner has been released. For all the details, let's go to Nelson Aspen in Hollywood. What's the story? The irony is that I don't think

Angelina could care less about this. She made a She made a movie about the supermodel Gia and received great

acclaim for it. There was a Torrid

lesbian scene with one of the stars

from Lost and the producers decided

to release the footage. It is

unclear whether it is film footage

or have the scenes reinstated. It is

certainly titillating. Angelina did it without any complaints 11 years

ago. It is something from her past.

She doesn't seem the shy type, does she? Exactly. Shortly - the man who helps Oprah get organised! He'll share some tips for spring cleaning your home. Plus, from hairdressing to bricklaying - we've got the Olympics for tradies. And the reporter who bit off a bit more than he could chew when he get in the cage with a lion. You're watching Sunrise across Australia.

Sunrise brought to you by Jetstar - Australia's low-fares airline. Now flying to 20 destinations across the country. To book, go to: Rifmt Jeff Kennett.

Jeff Kennett. He with the pretty

loud jacket says he would like to

see women playing AFL. Top-level

AFL. He said he would be quite happy

with someone running on with someone running on - In the

team with the boys. Not a separate

women's team. I am happy with it.

Wopt it be terrible to see a woman cop a really bad hit? Why? What is

the difference. What is the difference between a woman being hit

hard and a bloke? Women are not as

strong as blokes. The strong as blokes. The smallest AFL

player is massive. Hang on. You got

to be good enough. If you are tough

enough. It is not tactics. It is

strength and size. I am not saying

you put Paris Hilton out there. If

there is a woman who can prove

herself, physically strong with the skills. Why not Insane. Run into someone like Jono Brown. If we do that, we relegate women's sport to something less. "

something less. "I think it is great

playing against the boys. I love

playing footy on the weekends. playing footy on the weekends." But

it is different when it is young. The challenge is not to convince men

to let women play but to convince

women to go out and wear poo brown and poo yellow. On the way - the young Aussie tradies who've been named amongst the world's best. And how to get organised. We've got some advice from Oprah's expert. But first let's check what's making news. Here's Nat. Good morning. Three British Muslim men have been convicted over a murderous plot to blow up transatlantic passenger jets with liquid explosives. A court in London found the trio planned to kill thousands of people on flights from London to North America by activating bombs disguised as drinks. Police claim the plot could have caused more devastation than the September 11 attacks. This was a calculated and sophisticated plot to create a terrorist plot of global proportions

and the jury concluded Ali, Sarwar and Hussain knew what the target was. Four other men were acquitted. Their arrests in 2006 led to airport security changes worldwide, including tough restrictions on carrying liquids on planes. It's claimed murdered Sydney businessman Michael McGurk was seen in the New South Wales Parliament just two days before he was shot dead. News Limited has quoted an unnamed MP who told police he saw a man fitting Mr McGurk's description in Parliament House last Tuesday. The MP says the man claimed to have information that could bring down two Government ministers. A tape owned by Mr McGurk containing allegations of corruption against senior Labor MPs is currently being investigated. Kevin Rudd's popularity is back up to near-record levels. The latest newspoll shows the Prime Minister's satisfaction rating is up 3 points to 64%. Malcolm Turnbull has also won back some support with voters but still lags well behind Mr Rudd. Labor holds a commanding lead over the Coalition on the two-party preferred vote. Our federal politicians are about to get a big cut to their generous printing allowance. The move is aimed at reining in electioneering rorts ahead of an Auditor-General's report next week. The report is expected to reveal widespread misuse of the $300 million parliamentary entitlements scheme. MPs will also be banned from using their allowances to print election campaign pamphlets, including how-to-vote cards. An 8-month-old baby boy in America has had a miracle escape after a car crashed into his room. Little Christopher suffered just a few scratches as the car slammed into his cot, smashing it to pieces. I got the door open and my son was stuck underneath the car under all kinds of wood and I yanked him out of the room. The driver who's recovering in hospital was looking for a dog when she lost control of her car. In finance news: Wall Street was closed for the Labor Day long weekend. Time for sport. Here's Beretts. The Melbourne Storm will head to the judiciary in a desperate bid to clear Adam Blair for Friday's qualifying final against Manly. Blair was hit with a grade-one dangerous contact infringement for a so-called 'crusher' on Warriors captain Michael Luck. And the Dragons are standing behind their decision to play Sunday's final at Kogarah despite being able to attract bigger crowds and ticket sales at a larger venue. We've earned the right to play a home semifinal. If it's tiny advantage, we're entitled to that. Tickets go on sale this morning. And Geelong's Gary Ablett has created history voted by the players as the AFL's MVP for a third straight season. Ablett claimed the Leigh Matthews Trophy by more than a hundred votes from Collingwood midfielder Dane Swan. Yeah, I don't know what to say. Um, yeah, I just, ah, guess I come along tonight to just enjoy the night and, yeah, I don't know what to say. Ablett's father, Gary Ablett Sr, also won the trophy in 1993. A great accolade for a very impressive football club. Well

spoken by Beretta. How many more

weeks until the end of the season?

Only two more weeks. Put a lid on

it. He is unbearable in September.

But after the break - an Olympics for tradies. We'll see who's done Australia proud next on Sunrise. I said I'm not leaving this spot and I said I will call the police because I want my Western Burger done right. Now, it that so hard? Tomorrow on Sunrise, the stupid calls wasting emergency workers' time and putting our safety at risk. And it's a day in music history. (SINGS) # I'll never dance with another # Since I saw her standing there... # Join us to celebrate as the Beatles' hits are re-released. And they'll sound like you've never heard them before! That's Sunrise on Wednesday.

Get out your Beatle wig. Maybe not. They train hard each day, wear their uniform with pride and they've been vying for gold. But they're not athletes - they're the nation's best young tradies. 26 Aussie men and women showcased their skills in Canada this week at the WorldSkills International Comp. And two of our medal winners, Jessie-Lee Gladwell and Nigel Croke, join us now from Calgary. Good morning and congratulations. Jessie-Lee, let's start with you. You've taken out gold for beauty therapy and also the Best of the Nation Award. Talk us through what you were judged on during the competition. Throughout the four days I was

basically doing treatments from

waxing through to fantasy make-up, massage, nails, stuff like that. Congratulations. It is just an amazing, amazing award. Is that the

rest of the Australian team behind

you? I can see lots of other medals.

How many went and how many won? 12 medals out of medals out of 10 categories. That is

fantastic. Congratulations to the

rest of the guys for us. Nigel, you

won a bronze medal in bricklaying.

Tell us how competitive it is. Very competitive. Three modules over four

days. We we are one or two marks of

each

each other. Very hard competition.

How many countries, Nigel, and how

many competitors all up. It really

does sound like a tradies Olympics.

55 countries but in bricklaying it

was 20 countries. What do you reckon

got you through? Do you have a special technique for slapping down

themortar? Just a lot of dedication and training to my job. What other trades are represented? There was hairdressers, welders, chefs, jewellery makers, painters, we had

26 of the best come with us and each one representing a different category. That is fantastic. The

girls got very excited when they

heard we were doing this segment

because we had a calendar of tradies

with their shirts off. Does that

come with the job? Nice. Yeah, it

comes with the job, mate. All in a day's work. You are not judged on that, are you? What's that? that, are you? What's that?. You are

not judged with your shirt off, are

you? No, not at all. If I was, I

won't have got the bronze. I would

have got the gold. Congratulations

to all of you and lovely to talk to

all of you this morning. See you. A

bunch of good young Aussies doing so well overseas. Coming up - what will happen when a country changes the side of the road it drives on?

On an island - let's move on. And amazing video of the lion that got a little rough when a TV reporter entered his cage. But next, how to declutter your home and your life. We'll get some tips from Oprah's expert right after this!

If you're thinking about doing some spring cleaning, then we've got just the person to help. Because before you start tackling the mess, you need to know where to start. Peter Walsh is an organising guru who gives advice to none other than Oprah Winfrey. And he's here this morning with his top tips for getting the house in order. Is Oprah tidy? Unbelievably. With

organisation comes a lot of focus

and concentration. She juggles a lot

of stuff. She loves to have things

in their place. That's what it is

all about. I am not the crazy

organising guy organising for

organising's sake. It is having

things in place to remove a tonne of

stress. I know you both have kids.

Stress for me is the second drawer

in the kitchen. Everything goes into

it. What do you do? Empty all the stuff from the cutlery drawer into a

bin, simple as that. Leave it on the

kitchen counter for the next month.

Every time you use an item, put it back in the drawer. Following so

far? Yes. At the end of the month,

whatever is still in the box, my

friends, you do not need it. Let it

go. Throw it out? Give it to saint

Vinnie's or the Salvos. What if it is one of those little juicing

things you might use once a month.

No, no, good try. I am married to someone who never throws anything

away. I am surrounded by them. How

do you break that habit? How do you

convince someone to throw it out?

Don't focus on the stuff. First say,

what do you want from this space?

Peace, harmony, motivation. Look at the stuff and the stuff and ask does the stuff

create the space we want? If you

focus on the stuff, it ends up arguing. If you argue, there is a

winner and a loser. Or divorce. We

haven't got there yet. Throw it out when she is not looking. Living

room. Whether it is clothes, DVDs, CDs or books. Try something as simple as the ratio rule. For every

four items that you key. For every

four items that you keep. I like it. Eventually you will cut down the

stuff to fit in the area or the

closet. Try that with shoes.

Something as simple as that. The

sisterhood will be going against you

with shoes. What about the home

office? Even if we don't work at

home, we have stuff like our papers.

You are a finance guy. You need to

keep on top of the finance stuff, tax stuff. It is National Organising

Week in Australia. A lot of the stuff I am using is Daoub mow. Set up a mail centre where your paperwork lives. Label the stuff. You both look completely astounded by this. No. You can simply quickly

find what you need and put it in a

mail tray so it is not beside the

toilet in the master bedroom or in

the car. Label, label, label. If you want some workshops, go to nationalworkshoporganising.org. Any other crackers? If you share an office with somebody and your side

is organised and theirs is not. How

do you manage that? Get management on the phone so the more important

person in the duo gets the corner office. Hypothetically. Any other

cracker tips? Or get a piece of

masking tape. She has suggested it.

The one thing people ask me about is

clothing. You wear 20% of your

clothes 80% of the time. Today take

all the clothes out and turn the

clothes hanger back to front. In six months, anything still hanging back

to front goes to the same place as the cutlery drawer. And give to charity. Toys. Pass on to people less fortunate than yourself. It's not magic. You just need to get into it. I must admit I thought it would

be a bit on the boring side. I was

so much out of it. Welcome to world. You do finance and sport so much out of it. Welcome to my

serve morning. And it is a real

pleasure to come from the United

States. Thank you so much! I

personally was very excited. That is

why his side of the office sucks.

He's out and you are in. Still to come - the country that's switching from driving on the right to the left. We'll see how well it's going to work. But next, this morning's news and weather. And the star who has declared a 'National Real Hair Day'. You're watching Sunrise on Seven.

You want styles, you got it. Coming up at 9:00, stars, stars, stars. Jessica Mauboy. And remember Ross?

Where are they now? Plus you want

stars, how about Larry Emdur and

Kylie Gillies. The Morning Show straight after Sunrise. Still to come this Sunrise - their world is about to turn upside down! So what will happen when this country switches from driving on the right side of the road to the left? We'll take you there live to find out. Plus, the lion that got a bit too rough. How a travel reporter bit off a little more than he could chew while shooting a tourism video. But first, let's get a news hit. Here's Nat. Good morning. Three British Muslim men have been convicted over a murderous plot to blow up transatlantic passenger jets.

The trio planned to kill thousands of people on flights from London to North America by setting off bombs disguised in drink bottles. It led to an unprecedented security crackdown in airports around the world. (EXPLOSION) It would have been a midair massacre. At 30,000 feet, everyone onboard would have been killed. Our reconstruction shows the devastation liquid bombs could cause. VIDEO: Enough is enough. We have warned you so many times to get out of our land, leave us alone but you persisted in trying to humiliate us, kill us and destroy us and destroy us. These suicide bombers aimed to wipe out hundreds, possibly thousands of innocent lives. The discovery of the plot changed the way we fly. Armed officers were drafted into Heathrow. All passengers were banned from carrying liquids in case they were bottle bombs. Today the jury found Abdulla Ali, Assad Sarwar and Tanvir Hussain guilty of conspiring to make liquid bombs which they would have used to blow up seven transatlantic jets. This was a particularly horrendous plot which would have led to murder and mayhem on an unimaginable scale. The plan was to board an aircraft here at Heathrow bound for the United States. They were going to wait until the flight was mid-Atlantic before assembling and detonating their bombs. The idea was to give their accomplices enough time to get on several more flights heading in the same direction. The results, they hoped, would be a string of devastating midair explosions. (EXPLOSION) Instead, scientists at the national Forensic Explosives Laboratory reconstructed the bombs, graphically demonstrat
