savings. There is an hour to go. Bosses around the country are advertising for more staff. That seems to be adding to the pressure for the Reserve Bank to lift official interest rates when it meets today. Let's find out from Craig James at Comsec is what they are going to do. Do you Craig James at Comsec whether that reckon those job advertisement figures, Craig, will tip the scales? Could have been the straw that broke the camel's back. This was the

second consecutive rise that we have

had in terms of job adds. We have

had increases now for over 4% for

two consecutive months. It does look as though as unemployment is peaking, around 6% peaking, around 6%. The government thought it was going to 8% thought it was going to 8%. So Reserve Bank at some point in time thought it was going to 8%. So the had to lift interest rates. We think it's probably a bit early, they

could wait a month or so, but

made the right decisions over the in the Reserve Bank's hands. It's could wait a month or so, but it's

last 14, 15 years. It's kept us out

of recession so we have got to trust

it to Mick the right decision. Home

owners, got to brace for an interest

rate hike. If it doesn't occur

today, it most certainly will happen on Melbourne Cup Day in November.

But, Craig, in our 5.

that. 2.30 we get the announcement. Soon on Sunrise - Australia fights to keep the Champions Trophy. But first, a quick check of today's weather. Around the capitals - fine for Brisbane. A shower or two in Sydney and Canberra. Hail and thunderstorms for Melbourne today. Showers and snow for Hobart. Mainly fine in Adelaide. Fine for Perth and Darwin. James has the weather in detail live from Darwin when Sunrise continues. Tomorrow on Sunrise - the male injection that's said to be better than condoms. Also, the widow of Crazy John speaks for the first time about the phone tycoon's sudden death. And... (SING 'WINNER TAKES IT ALL') (SING 'WINNER TAKES IT ALL' IN ITALIAN) Il Divo are back. They're performing live, Wednesday on Sunrise. Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Australia is has worked its way into a solid position as it looks to become the first team in history to defend the Champions Trophy. They've recovered from 2/6 early on to be 2/82 chasing 201 for victory against New Zealand. The Kiwis had a constant struggle with the sheer pace of Brett Lee slumping to 5/94 at one point. Lee finished with figures of 2/45 from 10 lightning overs. COMMENTATOR: Knocked him over! What a good yorker that was - 146km/h. The Aussie run chase started disastrously with Time Paine and Ricky Ponting both falling cheaply. St Kilda midfielder Luke Ball has told club officials he wants to be traded to Collingwood in a bid to reignite his career. The Magpies are also in negotiations with Sydney for ruckman Darren Jolly, who wants to return to Melbourne. Hawthorn is confident they can secure Shaun Burgoyne but the Power are playing hard ball. Clearly, there is four or five other clubs keen to get into it. At

clubs keen to get into it. At least we have got some options. Former Sydney forward Barry Hall could become a Western Bulldog as early as today. To the A-League and Adelaide United has come from a goal down to salvage a 1-1 draw with the Newcastle Jets at Hindmarsh Stadium overnight. The Reds missed a great chance to draw level when skipper Travis Dodd missed a second half penalty. But Brazilian star Cassio made up for the miss in style. COMMENTATOR: And that's brilliant from Cassio! One of the great A-League goals. Earlier yesterday Sydney FC reclaimed top spot on the ladder. with a 1-nil win over the Central Coast. Pole vault star Steve Hooker is setting the bar high this summer. The reigning Olympic and world champion is planning to smash Sergey Bubka's 15-year-old world record of 6.14m and the man himself isn't too happy about it. Sergey presented me with my medal but he doesn't really acknowledge me all that much at the moment. I think he is still pretty competitive even though he's retired. Hooker's current best is 6.06m - eight centimetres below the Ukrainian legend. How is he not talking to our Steve. He is a lovely gentleman. Just becoming mates with Steve, it would

be great to see two legends together. Get a bit humble. Now to James and today's weather. Where are you today - I'm awake. Good morning. I'm at Sky City, the Cas Ian owe at Darwin by means we have made it. We have done 5, have made it. We have done 5,383. have made it. We have done 5,383.6 kilometres, all the way to Darwin. There seems to have been a slight mix-up last night. We arrived here in Darwin. They heard someone from

know about this up here. They seem to love you. I will be pb back soon. Twaou the salt and pepper sqid in

the restaurant. They do that for the high rollers. They didn't give me

the Beretts suit last night but my room was delightful. We tried the

bar Mundy last night which was

beautiful. We didn't have much luck

fishing for that yesterday. I will show that vision later. Plus we will recap the entire journey. Sunrise weather brought to you by Claratyne so you can stay one step ahead of allergies and live Claratyne clear. Clear skies over much of Queensland today. Mostly fine in Maroochydore and Brisbane. In New South Wales it will be fine and sunny in Bourke. The chance of an afternoon shower for Coffs Harbour. Partly cloudy in Dubbo. A few showers for Newcastle. Sydney, showers. Chance of thunderstorms in Wagga Wagga and Albury. There will be showers and some rain across Victoria and Tassie today. The chance of thunderstorms in Ballarat. 13 for Warnambool. There could be hail in Melbourne. Possible hail and thunderstorms for Geelong and Bairnsdale. Showers in Swansea. Mountain snow for Hobart. Mt Gambier can expect a few showers. It will be mainly fine in Adelaide. Fine across Ceduna, Coober Pedy and Katherine. Tops of 35 in Darwin. Over to WA, Albany can expect a few showers. Fine for Perth. Geraldton, Karratha and Broome can all expect clear, blue skies.

It's about 93% humidity here and

local time is only just after 4.30 in the morning. I will see you in half an hour. Still ahead - the mum of the little boy Elton John wants to adopt tells her side of the story. And then, strap yourself in as we catch up with an Aussie top gun. But after the break - wedding bells are ringing in Tinseltown. We've got the stars preparing to walk down the aisle when Sunrise continues. The E-File on Sunrise with the all-original Nelson Aspen brought to you by 'New Idea', for all the latest celebrity news and more. Yet another member of the cast of 'Sex and the City' is giving up the single life. The star accidentally announced the engagement to a reporter. To find out who is hearing wedding bells, let's go to Nelson Aspen in Hollywood. Nelson, which star is it?

news, there are reports A-lister,

Penelope Cruz is set to tie the kno it t? The only thing harder than saying Penelope Cruz is Javier Bardem, which is her boyfriend. They were quick to deny rumours of her pregnancy. Now they are tight-slipped about the facts they are engaged and their source is a friend of Penelope's friend of Penelope's, some friend, who blabbed to the paper they are planning to marry in the future.

Maybe a baby will follow. A lot of romance in the air. Another famous on again, off again couple have been reunited briefly during a tough time. Who? This isn't romantic. I thought maybe you had an update

about Fifi and her bar tender. It is not a romantic thing. Jessica Simpson and her ex boyfriend, Tony Romo, Simpson and her ex boyfriend, Tony Romo,, you might have heard she lost her malti-poo dog, Dazy, to to a

Coyote and her little dog was taken away by a Coyote. Tony, knowing how

much that dog meant to Jessica, reached out and called her and they

had a nice conversation and he is

there for her. Lost your dog to a

Coyote. Hall I Berry lost hers to a Coyote. I was hiking with my dog one day and we were coronered by a

Coyote. We stared him down. They say they spook but they don't really. They are too close to the city

dwellers. It's the wild west out

here. I thought it was... So Coyotes, are a bit like our dingoes,

like wild dog type things? Your

dingoes look cuter than a Coyote. When I see Coyote I'm like " When I see Coyote I'm like "It's a

Doggie" When I see Coyote I'm like "It's a Doggie", but a Coyote is more like a wolf. Thanks for the education. I

will have a vet segment coming up. On the way - are doctors allowing too many women to have C-sections without a real medical need? And later, the man who reckons Aussie blokes should be able to take more than one wife. How lucky would you be? Cool. Imagine that, fellas, coping with two? But after news and weather together, on Sunrise.

This is making news in America overnight. It's a dust storm in

Washington State. Call that a dust

storm? The Yanks don't know how to cope. They close roads, cause cash

crashes. You want to see a dust

storm bigger than Texas - get over

here! It does look pretty bad. White ones are easy, the red ones are

tough ones. Blinding red is the

particular term for that dust. Thanks for that scientific approach. On the way, the little Ukrainian boy Elton John wants to adopt and how his mother is fighting to keep him. Plus we'll also get some advice for parents on spotting the signs of teenage depression. Right now though it's news time. Here's Ann. Good morning. A 61-year-old molecular biologist has become the first Australian woman to win a Nobel Prize. Dr Elizabeth Blackburn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine along with collaborators Jack Szostak and Carol Greider. I think I thought I was dreaming and I groped for the phone and the person explained why he was calling and it slowly dawned on me that this might be real. Professor Blackburn made a discovery that could help fight cancer and reverse the ageing process. Australia could today become the first major Western economy to lift interest rates following the global financial crisis. The Reserve Bank holds its monthly meeting this morning. But economists are divided over whether it'll pull the interest rate trigger. Rates are currently at a 49-year low of 3%. A New South Wales policewoman has spoken for the first time about the axe murders of her mother and children at the hands of her father. Shelley Walsh's father attacked the family inside their Cowra home. She says no explanation from her father can answer why he killed her two children. I remember walking down the hallway going, "Have a good day at school." and Dad yelling out, "No, they won't". John Walsh has been sentenced to life in jail for the murders. Australian rescue teams will return home from Indonesia's earthquake zone after authorities there called off the search for survivors. 36 paramedics and search experts from Queensland were sent to Sumatra following last Wednesday's 7.6 magnitude quake. They joined rescue teams from Indonesia and around the world searching for signs of life under the rubble. The Australians are expected home within the next two to three days. Chilling new CCTV vision has been released showing the moment the quake hit a major Indonesian hotel. In finance news: Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Australia's batsmen have recovered from a poor start to take control of the Champions Trophy final against New Zealand. The Aussies are closing in on the Kiwis' victory target of 201 and are just two wickets down. Defending a small total, Shane Bond got the Kiwis off on the right foot, snaring the scalp of Tim Paine in the second over. Kyle Mills followed up with the key wicket of Ricky Ponting for one seven balls later. But Shane Watson and Cameron White have steadied the ship with an impressive partnership. Watson's continued his rich vein of form following up his semifinal century with another unbeaten 50. The Champions Trophy has been rocked by reports Pakistan skipper Younis Khan is under investigation for dropping a simple catch in his side's semifinal loss to New Zealand. An Indian newspaper claims the ICC's anti-corruption unit is looking into the incident. It would seem that winning the NRL Grand Final is not enough for Melbourne - they now want to host the match. While fans celebrated the Storm's premiership victory over Parramatta Melbourne's Lord Mayor made a cheeky grab for the event itself. We are great spectators, we love our sport. We know how to do it well - I would love to see an NRL Grand Final played at the MCG. Supporting their boast of being our sporting capital Melbourne teams now hold titles in the NRL, AFL, Sheffield Shield cricket, A-League football, basketball and netball. In the A-League Adelaide United have come behind to snatch a 1-1 draw with the Newcastle Jets at Hindmarsh Stadium overnight. And they did in spectacular fashion with Brazilian midfielder Cassio coming up with one of the goals of the season in the second half. And Jelena Dokic has won her first tournament in more than seven years, downing Eleni Daniilidou in straight sets to take out the ITF Challenger event in Greece. A big morning. James has made it all

the way to Darwin in his green frog. Yes, the way to Darwin in his green frog. Yes, Kochie, I have. I'm standing on the lawn outside the front of SkyCity. This is soon to be renamed the Mark Beretta paddock stretch of

grass. They are big fans of Mark. We have made it all the way 5, have made it all the way 5,383. have made it all the way 5,383.6 kilometres in this. It must be Australia's most fuel efficient car. I reckon we have spent more on beef

jerky and soft drink than on petrol.

I have spoken to the people at Ford. As an optional extra you will be

able to get one of these attached to

the side window if you want it.

Although it is a city car, we have

been taking it out on the wide open

roads in Australia and it has handled them very nicely. We will be

sad to say goodbye. It's about to in the Global Green Car Challenge. sad to say goodbye. It's about to go

I'm going to move the car off the

lawn before I get in trouble. I will

see you in half an hour with more weather. How much did you spend on

petrol? We were trying to work it out, a few hundred bucks. We have done almost 6,000 kilometres. We

have been driving with a four-wheel

drive. They have been filling up and a half times to everyone we have drive. They have been filling up two

been doing. Excellent, thank you James. Thought of the Day time now. While you do that, can I just thank

Peter who has sent me and Mel,

really Mel, look at this. Look how many thoughts are contained in here. This is the 180 life-changing motivational quotes. We have

motivational quotes. We have got Thought of the Day sorted for years.

Those are the ones you put on your office wall. Thoughtful of Peter. I

was going to pick one. Hang on, page

33. There was a one on page 33. I should have organised this before.

You had to go page 33 before you

found a good one? Do you want me to

do Joke of the Day while you sort it? I know, Thought of the Day, get prepared before... Which relates to today. If you wait, all that happens

is that you get older. How apt is

that? Joke of the Day relates to

agriculture is meant coming up

later, the new inject that's better than a condom. This joke comes from Gary in Queensland. Why do Irish men wear two condoms - it would be to be sure. wear two condoms - it would be sure That's cute. Just ahead on Sunrise - the tourist who survived this. We've got the bungee jump that went horribly wrong, when the cord broke. He did survive. Just checking. And then, the Tasmanian scientist who's become the first Aussie woman to win a Nobel Prize. We will be talking to her later. But straight ahead - the countdown to Bathurst. When we need a car, we call Thrifty - Australia's best-valued car and truck rental. Excuse me if I'm a little bit

excited this morning but the count down is on. Three amazing weeks in Aussie sport continue this weekend with the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. Team Vodafone is preparing for another big year. Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup are looking to win at the Mountain for the fourth straight year. And they join us now. Good morning. It must be great going to the Mountain as overwhelming favourites? It must be you. Do you feel like you

are mastering this now, going for

fourth straight or are there more people gunning for you? For us as a team, it's unbelievable to have three in a row. We get best prepared, combination-wise we are strong. We had a great run

strong. We had a great run at Phillip Island. There are a lot of positives come out of Phillip Island. We have had the football,

now it's our turn and we get a Hans

to race at a track that is our holy

grail, it is our grand final. Is

there still something special going to Mount Panorama? You give them the

ultimatum, win the championship or

Bathurst. Everyone says Bathurst. It

is the biggest event of the year. 1,000 gruelling kilometres on Sunday to get through. It's a great Australian tradition. Tell us about

this, for you guys physically, you

look in good shape, what do you to be doing to be ready for look in good shape, what do you have

Bathurst? We have been working on ex close I have speed. Now we have gotten daourns. Phillip Island was a good lead-in, driver changing,

strategy, the crew to get around pit

stops. For Jamie and I, we have been

working Etihad knowing it's going to

be four in a row. We have only equalled the record, we haven't

created new history. It is big for us. I suppose, we are confident, but

we are excited. We know it's a long

race. We have got 161 laps, great

competitors we have to both to to the checkered flag. We have had competitors we have to both to get

good positive result its out

good positive result its out of Phillip Island. Weather will play a

big part. It's amazing to get

big part. It's amazing to get up there. We will get excited as it comes closer to Sunday. Jamie, this is one of the toughest fields you

have had to face. You throw in wide

cards like Skaify and Greg Murphy.

HRT are going to be quick, Performance Racing are going to be HRT are going to be quick, Ford quick. Skaife and Murphy, they have

36 starts between the two of them. Massive amount of experience which plays a big part. You have dob this

a lot of times. For all of us

watching on, what the key to winning

at Bathurst. What is the thing you

have to concentrate on Sunday? For me, not making any mistakes. You need both drivers working in harmony, you need the team strategy, fuel consumption, 85 this year, we

have to do an extra one or two

stops. That will play a part for the

engineers. You need to stay in the

leaders, and need a good car at the end of the race to have a good race.

The last 20 or 30 laps, it has been a sprint to the checkered flag.

Hopefully the car is in good shape. We are. The team is prepared and

ready. We will see what happens. You

deserve success on the mountain one more time. Jamie, you

more time. Jamie, you have got a brand new helmet? A brand new

helmet. Traditionally I have had a blue design. When you flick to the in board camera and wonder who is that, in board camera and wonder who is that,, that is me. So you recognise them, that is what they are wearing. Thank you, Beretts. A huge weekend ahead on the mountain. Shortly, the row over C-sections. And the Tasmanian scientist who's become the first Aussie woman to win a Nobel Prize. But next, how did he survive this? The bungee jump that went horribly wrong is straight ahead on Sunrise. Here are Seth and Selby, our pets of the day. They're rottweilers and owner Brittany says she loves them because they're unbelievably naughty! Hopefully they'll swap the shoes for the new toys you'll be able to buy them with a Petstock gift voucher. To see how you can spend it and for more great offers from Catalogue Central just head to our website. What's got people talking, Ann? Calls to let men have more than one wife, Nat. Keysar Trad, of the Islamic Friendship Association, says that polygamy should be de-criminalised. Keysar claims it would actually improve a lot of relationships. He says many men have affairs, so why keep lying about them? Keysar Trad will state his case here on Sunrise after 7 o'clock. But in the meantime, have your say. Should bigamy be legal? Email or SMS us. Shall I open this up to the floor.

Should we chuck out marriage as well

and everything else that goes with

it? I would like people's thoughts on why you do it. Does it go both

ways? Or can women have a couple of

blokes. That's the key. They don't want women having any more husbands,

it's only the other way around.

Their argument falls down a little

there. It raises a question. Give us some scenarios where it can be

appropriate. I can see some sort of merit in it if you got married to a

lady who has weakness in areas such as cooking. You can plug that with another wife. You can have two husbands, one would take out the

rubbish. Would I want two? You can take the rubbish out yourself. The

second husband might clean the bath room. Pigs would fly. Or is it

better to have an affair or a second husband? Because that's his

argument. That is the argument. There's a lot of talk today about girls growing up too fast. An Aussie researcher reckons little girls are turning themselves into mini-adults. Girls want to go to pre-school in bras tailored for toddlers, paint their nails and wear lip gloss. By age six they're accessorising with handbags and branded clothes. By 10 and 11 some girls are getting their first Brazilian wax. By 13, some are texting compromising photos of themselves to boys. And by 14, some girls have had 20 sexual partners. So are girls growing up too fast? Share your thoughts with us on the Soapbox. They are robbing them of their childhood. Little childhood. Little girls are little

girls. They have time to worry about their make-up. Boys run around outside and kick the footy and get on with things. Why aren't little

girls doing the same? How much a bearing does wearing lip gloss at three have on later life. Little girls have a little handbag. A handbag and a doll. And a tea set.

It does seem to have gone way too

far. I wonder if sometimes we as parents are just agreeing to it and

letting them. There is a cut off

point. Let us know what you think. It's a big day across the road at the Reserve Bank. The board members meet to chew over interest rates. Some economists think rates might go up because our economy has weathered the financial crisis. Kochie, what do you think the Reserve will do today? That's a live shot of the Reserve Bank atmosphere. Absolutely electric

as it always is on the first Tuesday of every month. I reckon housing

market is the big issue. And jobs, too? How many places around your

area have been up for sale so long

and all of a sudden have been

flogged in the last month or so. Was that to do with Buyers Grant? That added to it, but that to do with the First Home even non-first homebuyer type

properties are also selling. A bit

of a bubble at the moment. The jobs

are an issue. The economy bouncing

back. You don't want it to over heat. Glenn Stevens, a bright one,

best in the world. I reckon he will move. Two? One in November as well.

We will find that out this afternoon. Finally, a thrill seeker's orst nightmare. This is the bungee jump that went horribly wrong. It happened to an English tourist in Phuket. He survived the 50 metre fall when the bungee cord slipped off his feet. Risha Bavayja suffered injuries similar to a car crash - a ruptured spleen, collapsed lungs, a torn liver and severe bruising. And he admits he's cheated death.

It's so quick, you get the huge rush. The only thing I knew what had gone wrong was when I was in the water. Did you not feel when you hit the water? It wasn't water. Did you not feel anything

terrible pain, it was like being winded.

terrible pain, it was like being winded. But I actually

winded. But I actually initially when I got out of the water and got

loaded into the ambulance, I thought

it was like over kill, I thought I needed a couple of minutes but I

think I was in shock. needed a couple of minutes but I think I was in shock.

needed a couple of minutes but I think I was in shock. He reckons the accident hasn't put him off extreme sports. He plans to go skydiving once he's recovered. Would it put you off bungee jumping? Not too much leeway. It's

extraordinary he has only had those injuries considering that impact from that height. We take these things for granted when we do them, now. On holidays, having a bit of

fun. Let us know of your close shaves, fun. Let us know of your close

shaves,. I did skydiving but I was scared on the way down. There

quite a few words spoken as I jumped out of the plane. You think " scared on the way down. There were

out of the plane. You think "What

if" as you head out. My mate did a

skydive who was a radio journo, back then it was cassette tapes and grave the description all along. Landed, broke his leg, kept describing it. Thought " Thought "I'm going to win a prize for this" and the tape recorder wasn't working. We would have given him one. Close shaves, let us know. After the break - this morning's extended news and weather. Plus, the Tasmanian scientist who's become the first Aussie woman to win a Nobel prize. Then, the rising rate of Caesareans. Should women always have a choice in how they give birth? And, the little boy Elton wants to adopt. Why his mum is now fighting to keep him, when Sunrise continues.

Thanks to the brand new series 'Beauty and the Geek Australia', you could score a very special dinner date. You and a friend have the chance to spend an evening with the ultimate Aussie beauty - Jennifer Hawkins and our very own Sunrise geek - Kochie. To be in the running make sure you're watching 'Beauty and the Geek' this Thursday night. That's when the codeword will be revealed. Then just follow the prompts and on Friday morning we'll announce the name of the very lucky winner. They can sit next to Jen. Still to come this Sunrise - it's how one in three babies now comes into the world. But why are more and more women opting for a C-section? And should they get the choice? In 10 minutes on Sunrise, the real facts on Caesareans. Also, Elton John's adoption battle. Why little Lev's mum is now fighting to keep him. Plus, the Tasmanian scientist who's become the first Aussie woman to win a Nobel prize. And, a reunion to melt your heart.

it's news time with Ann Sanders. Right now, Good morning. the first major Western economy Australia could today become to lift interest rates following the global financial crisis. The Reserve Bank holds its monthly meeting this morning but economists are divided over whether it'll pull the interest rate trigger. Seven political reporter Andrew Greene has more.

In a few hours time Reserve Bank governors will meet in Sydney but economists are split over whether they'll choose to move rates up or keep them unchanged at their 49-year low of 3%, a position they have been in for the past six months. Those emergency levels of 3% was set back in April at the height of the global financial crisis and now some forecasters believe that urgency no longer exists in the domestic economy.

In fact, an increasing number of economists are now tipping the Reserve Bank will today look at getting ahead of the market by raising rates by 0.25%. Predictably Treasurer Wayne Swan won't be drawn on what level he believes the Reserve Bank should set rates at. Of course nobody wants to see rates go up but I think the Governor of the Reserve Bank

has made it very, very clear that the official cash rate is at emergency levels. But business groups say the recent signs of economic recovery in Australia aren't enough to justify an increase in the official cash rate just yet. And although homeowners may be spared a rate rise today, they are almost certain to see interest rates go up before the end of the year. In fact some experts are even predicting

that interest rate will go up in November, December and February. Back to you. A 61-year-old molecular biologist has become the first Australian woman to win a Nobel Prize. For more I'm joined by US correspondent Mike Amor. Good morning, Mike. How did Elizabeth Blackburn react after being given such an honour? Ann,

A 22-year-old man will face a Sydney court today, charged with the murder of crime figure Abdul Darwiche. Mohammed Fahda was extradited from Tonga yesterday. He's accused of shooting dead 37-year-old Darwiche outside a service station in Sydney's south-west in March. An out-of-control car has left a path of destruction through a street in Melbourne's north. The Toyota crashed though two front yards, bringing down fences and colliding with two parked cars.

A gas main was also ruptured. You could just hear the gas metre, just the gas going off and I was just a bit concerned because I was just a bit worried that it might have blown or something. The Fire Brigade quickly plugged the leak. It's the second time a car has crashed through the properties in two years. After 80 years some much-loved characters of children's literature are back.

10 people have been killed in a train derailment in Thailand. 12 carriages of twisted wreckage were strewn across the tracks south of Bangkok. The train derailed before dawn near the popular Hua Hin resort town. Investigators are blaming a faulty signalling switch and recent heavy rain. Police say all of the dead are Thai nationals. 88 others were injured in the crash. A dust storm has closed major roads in Washington State.

Strong winds whipped up the dust and the poor visibility caused several car crashes before the roads were shut. The white-out rivals red clouds of dust that swept through eastern Australia last month. In finance news:

Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Australia is in a strong position in the final of the Champions Trophy against New Zealand. The Aussies are now 4 down for 165, chasing 201 for victory. Shane Watson's stocks continue to rise as an opener on the back of another impressive half century. Cameron White also punished the Kiwi attack on the way to a stylish half century.

COMMENTATOR: That's a tremendous

shot. The shot straight down the

ground, always very pretty. White threw his innings away in strange circumstances, falling to Kyle Mills for 68. Nathan Hauritz was the Aussie's best with the ball, claiming 3/37. St Kilda midfielder Luke Ball has told club officials he wants to be traded to Collingwood in a bid to reignite his career.

The Magpies are also in negotiations with Sydney for ruckman Darren Jolly, who wants to return to Melbourne. Hawthorn is confident they can secure Shaun Burgoyne but the Power are playing hardball. Clearly, there is four or five other clubs that are very keen to get in on it. We'll see what happens as the week goes on. We've at least got some options. Former Sydney forward Barry Hall could become a Western Bulldog as early as today.

Team Vodafone stars Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes are cautiously optimistic ahead of their historic tilt at a fourth straight win in the Bathurst 1000 this weekend. The Ford pair are favourites but know that plenty can go wrong. We are confident, we are excited. We

We will catch up with you in half an hour. Should it be a mother's choice if her child is born by caesarean section? About 30% of babies born in Australia are caesars. But New South Wales Health says that's too high

and many mothers don't understand the risks. While caesarean section is safer today than it has ever been, it still carries significant risks and risks than are greater than vaginal births. The World Health Organization says the rate of caesarean births should be about 15%. So, is Australia's rate of caesarean births too high?

And should a doctor have the final say? Let's ask Australian Medical Association president and obstetrician Dr Andrew Pesce. Good morning. Are too many Aussie mums having caesareans?

Well, it's difficult to think one in

three women need to have their baby

by caesarean section. I think by caesarean section. I think it would be possible would be possible to maintain a good

degree of safety and not have quite

that high a rate. But the rate in

comparable countries in the world is

very, very similar. In England, in the United States, in New Zealand,

so Australia isn't out on its own in

this regard. We really need to think of how we can convince mothers to feel feel confident that they can try for normal births, even when there is a

little bit of a problem, which often

leads to a decision to consider leads to a decision to consider a caesarean section. Is it the mums deciding or the obstetricians? Quite properly it's a combination of both. Women take part in this decision-making process and as an obstetrician myself, I understand

obstetrician myself, I understand how I have to try and reflect what I understand the woman wants. So even

when there is times when I think

from a medical point of view would be safe to proceed with a normal delivery, if a woman isn't from a medical point of view it

comfortable with that decision, it's

hard for an obstetrician to tell

hard for an obstetrician to tell her what is good for hernd not to

what is good for hernd not to worry about it and trust in my judgment. Do you think Do you think it's proper that obstetricians are allowing caesars when there is month medical reason

for it, like they are going on

holidays next week or the mum wants to beat the baby bonus cut-off because that is happening across the

country? I don't think that's the big issue. The big issue is the fact

that nowadays, whenever there is

some anxiety or problem, it's very

easy to think through that and come to a conclusion that the safest

thing from the point of view of the baby's health is to perform a caesarean section. Caesareans do

protect babies but they do impose

risks on mothers that need to be fully understood.

risks on mothers that need to be fully understood. I think once you

are getting into the rate of 30% of caesarean sections, any further increase in that rate is increase in that rate is unlikely to help outcomes for babies as much as

it increases risks for mothers. help outcomes for babies as much as it increases risks for mothers. it increases risks for mothers. A help outcomes for babies as much as

caesarean is a very safe operation

in general but there is no doubt that there are some risks, especially for repeat cesareans, that must be understood. This reason of convenience, it does seem more widespread than you suggest. In the week before last year's $ week before last year's $5,000 baby bonus came into effect, there were fewer caesars. As soon as it

into effect, the rate of caesars was increased. So people must be doing fewer caesars. As soon as it came

it for convenience? That's a timing issue. If a woman says you were

going to do a caesarean on me this

week, if you wait until next week, I will get $

will get $5,000 extra, that's not increasing the number of increasing the number of caesareans done, it's deferring it from one

week to another. The thing that we

need to understand and the message I

would like to get out, is that especially for first-time mothers,

you should try and avoid an induction of Labor la our because that has a higher risk of ending up with a caesarean section. Induction of labour for first time mothers

should really be done for good, proper medical proper medical indications. Secondly, because there are so many women out there who have had a

caesarean before, it is safe if properly supervised to try for a

normal delivery after a previous caesarean. So, if you caesarean. So, if you can consider

that and talk to your doctor to

that you would like to try for a normal delivery, then those two that and talk to your doctor to say

things in themselves will

potentially have a significant things in themselves will

impact to decrease the number of repeat cesareans that are done. A

lot of women do think that. Maybe more education is needed. Dr Pesce, thank you for your time. Elton John is still hoping to adopt a little boy from the Ukraine despite a new challenge from the toddler's mother. Elton met Lev in an orphange and the 15-month-old touched the star's heart.

UK media say the boy's mum, Marina, is an alcoholic and HIV positive. But now she's just come out against Elton, saying there's no way she'll let him take her son. So what does this mean for Elton John's dream of taking little Lev home? Joining us now from London is reporter Pippa Gardner. Pippa, this has been going on for quite a while. But Elton doesn't look like he's giving up without a fight.

Good morning, Kochie, that's right.

It's been going on for about a month

now. You might remember, as you evenings ined, that Elton and his

partner David met Lev in this

Ukraine orphanage. Apparently it was

love at first sight. He said Lev

stole his heart. Hours after meeting

the little boy, he announced to the world he wanted to adopt him. He said he was 62 years of age, he

ready to hang up his partying days. said he was 62 years of age, he was

The Government put the halt on the adoption plans. They said at 62 he

was too old to adopt him. Also, they don't recognise same-sex marriages.

If that wasn't enough to con tepd with,

with, a tabloid newspaper here, the sun, has managed to track down Lev's mum, marina, who is a 25-year-old

woman who they say has HIV and is

also an alcoholic. She, as you said,

has come out and said there is no

way that she wants Elton John to

take her little boy back to the UK. Two of her other children have custody has been taken away from her

already and she said she is going to

change her ways and she wants to

keep Lev and bring the other two back again. Why is Elton John still

peries situatesing in this? There are plenty of other kids in need

around the world that would probably

love his love and support and future backing? Yeah, absolutely. That's a difficult

difficult question. I guess when

Elton met Lev, he said there was a real bond between them. I think this

was a pivotal point for him. He decided that suddenly now after 62 years he was finally ready to become a father. Elton and his partner David had always spoken about adopting. Elton was always he was touring around, he never had enough time to be a devoted dad. adopting. Elton was always concerned

There is something about this boy,

he absolutely fell in love with him

and desperately wants to bring him back to the UK. Maybe he he has seen fellow friends and stars like

Madonna and Angelina Jolie adopt

children in Africa and he is very much involved with his AIDS

in the Ukraine and maybe he wanted much involved with his AIDS charity

to give this little boy a better

life. That's fair enough. He has a

link with the country. Thanks for the update. Now to a story of an English tourist who cheated death when his bungee cord slipped off his

Around his ankle, the harness that should have wrenched him back from the water. Surveying the drop he laughs and sends a message to his parents. Love you, Mum. Love you, Dad. I don't think you are meant to look down on these kind of things. Then it's time to jump but Rishi's unaware the harness is about to come loose, smashing him into the water at 80 miles an hour.

Those in charge fall silent as they begin filming the scenery, not the horror unfolding below. Amazingly the 21-year-old from Wakefield survived. A month after the accident in Phuket, he is home having lost his spleen, torn his liver, collapsed both lungs and damaged his eyes. When I was in the water I was like - shouldn't be in the water, this is wrong. Did you not feeling anything when you hit the water. It wasn't like terrible pain, it was almost like being winded. Rishi did the jump after reading of the company's 100% safety record - something they still boast of. I don't have any hard feelings towards the people, there's no point. But I do not like the fact they are still saying they have 100% safety. Amazingly even after the ordeal Rishi doesn't rule out the chance of doing another bungee or even a skydive.

The girl group has been fighting break-up rumours for months. But now a public snub has put their relationship back under pressure. For all the details, let's go to Nelson Aspen in Hollywood. Nelson, what's prompted the latest round of speculation?

The girls are denying any rifts between them. I can't tell one pussy cat Doll from another. Melody had her 25th birthday bash in Los

Angeles this past week. Only one of

On a much heavier note here, the police and his lawyer set up a sting operation to trap the extortionist and today in court, the audio and video tapes were played

Good morning. Homeowners are waiting with baited breath this morning to see if the Reserve Bank lifts interest rates. Economists are divided over whether rates will go up or remain unchanged at their 49-year low.

Treasurer Wayne Swan is refusing to speculate. Of course nobody wants to see rates go up but I think the governor of the Reserve Bank has made it very clear that the official cash rate is at emergency levels. If the Reserve Bank does pull the trigger, Australia would become the first major Western economy to lift interest rates following the global financial crisis.

A 61-year-old professor has become the first Australian woman to win a Nobel Prize. Dr Elizabeth Blackburn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine along with collaborators Jack Szostak and Carol Greider. The trio discovered a key mechanism in the genetic operations of cells that could lead to a cancer fighting breakthrough. These tests are going on. We don't know yet whether it works so we'll have to wait for another two or three years to know the answer to that question. Their discovery could also one day help reverse the ageing process. One of the most wanted men in New South Wales has been found and charged with the murder of crime figure Abdul Darwiche. Darwiche was gunned down in a hail of bullets at a service station in Sydney's south-west in March. 23-year-old Mohammad Fahda has been extradited from Tonga and has been charged with murder. He'll face a Sydney court this morning. Opposition Leader Malcolm Turnbull has taken another hit in the latest Newspoll.
