Showers developing in Melbourne. Mainly fine for Hobart. Showers in Adelaide. Partly cloudy in Perth. Afternoon showers for Darwin.

The weather in detail, when Sunrise continues. (POSH ACCENT) Would Madame prefer the chicken or the beef? (NORMAL ACCENT) I'm having the beef. Aussie Angus or top-quality chicken breast? The new M-Selections range. It's a little bit fancy.

Plus, Ricky Gervais. We chat to one of the world's funniest men. And meet the new Rogue Trader. That's an exclusive - on Weekend Sunrise, this Sunday from 7am. Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Australian selectors have made it clear

that Phil Hughes's prolific run-scoring over the last year won't be enough to earn him a Test recall. All-rounder Shane Watson will remain at the top of the order

for the first Test against the Windies, leaving Hughes on the outer. The selection panel thinks his current form isn't up to scratch. We were looking, to be fair, for a bit more form in Shield cricket

before he came back into the Test side. Stuart Clark is the only casualty from the side that lost the Ashes decider with Doug Bollinger coming into the squad. The AFL has warned players ahead of next week's national draft that anyone who refuses to honour a contract

will have to sit out for 23 months. It comes as interest intensifies in former Saint Luke Ball who's desperate to get to Collingwood but could be taken by Melbourne, Brisbane or Essendon. The Bombers confirmed their interest in Ball at the launch of their 2010 membership campaign yesterday but the midfielder has thus far refused to meet with the club. Rugby league fans will get a chance to farewell retiring Dragons winger Wendell Sailor. The dual international is certain to be selected in the indigenous team today for February's NRL All Star game. Gold Coast utility Preston Campbell will captain the side which will feature a host of NRL superstars including reigning Golden Boot winner Greg Inglis.

Manly cult hero George Rose is expected to be a shock selection in the team. V8 Supercar star Will Davison hammed it up for the cameras yesterday but it will be all business this weekend in the penultimate round of the series at Barbagallo Raceway. Davison is planning to go hard in a bid to slash Jamie Whincup's series lead.

I've got really nothing to lose now.

I've got to go out there and try and

win as many races as possible. Drivers hit the track for practice later today. The Irish Football Association has lodged an official protest with FIFA and is calling for a match replay

following the now-infamous handball from France's Thierry Henry that cost Ireland a spot at the World Cup. Irate Irish commentators have labelled Henry 'Le Cheat' and branded the incident "the hand of frog" in reference to Diego Maradona's infamous "hand of God" goal 23 years ago.

That is a rude word. Cheat. Oh la

cheat. I thought he said something

else too. He did. I think they are

calling him that as well. Fifi is

obviously going to be crook for a

little while. She's got pneumonia.

Anyway, we wish her all the best.

Rest up, Fifi. Nat is taking care of

the weather. And the heat and

bushfire alert is still big news.

New South Wales and for much of

Victoria and the ACT and South Australia. Sunrise weather for Beacon Lighting. Keep cool this summer with a ceiling fan from Beacon. Fan sale on now. There are clear skies over most of Queensland today. Townsville is headed for 31 degrees. 41 for Mt Isa. Maroochydore can expect 30 degrees. Sunny in Toowoomba. Brisbane will be a sunny 31. Into New South Wales and it will be mostly sunny in Coffs Harbour. Possible showers for Broken Hill. Late storms for Newcastle. There's also the chance of a late change in Sydney after tops of 33. Mostly dry, high cloud over Canberra. There's the chance of thunder for both Wagga and Albury. A few showers developing in Victoria today. Ballarat will be wet and windy. Bendigo is headed for 36. 34 for Melbourne today. There's a cool change on its way for Bairnsdale after reaching 39 degrees. Launceston will be raining. Rain too for Hobart too. Showers for Adelaide today. Port Lincoln and Ceduna can also expect showers. Possible storms for Coober Pedy. A hot 40 degrees in Alice Springs with an afternoon storm on the way. Darwin can also expect a storm. Over to WA and it will be partly cloudy in both Bunbury and Perth. Showers clearing in Kalgoorlie.

But next - Amy Winehouse's father leaks her secrets. Find out why the troubled singer was really in hospital when Sunrise continues. OK, so if a customer is unhappy with their service, they just write a comment on the ball and... (DANCE MUSIC BLARES) Oh! B-B-B-B-B-B-B-Basketball! MAN: Guys. Guys. Ooh! Customer service is a serious matter. It's everything. Dad, if someone isn't happy, couldn't you just promise to fix what's wrong? Like a customer service promise. Come on, people! SuggestDunk Box!

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. Amy Winehouse won't be too happy with her father right now. Mitch Winehouse has revealed the unusual medical problem that saw the singer heading to hospital. To find out what the problem was, let's go to Nelson Aspen. Nelson, why was Amy really in hospital?

I thought it was drugs. No drugs, no

alcohol. The first belief was cold

the word. Nat is here with the news. A catastrophic fire warning has been declared for south-west New South Wales as the country's south-east braces for more scorching heat. A fire warning is again in place for South Australia after a fire broke out on the Yorke Peninsula yesterday. Severe fire conditions are also expected in parts of Victoria. A new story of heroism has emerged from the Norfolk Island plane drama. The plane ditched into the sea yesterday with a critically ill woman and five others onboard.

CareFlight doctor David Helm continued to treat his patient as the plane ditched into the ocean. It's just been an example to everyone of what can be achieved against all odds. The hero pilot Captain Dominic James avoided the media when he flew into Sydney last night. A funeral will be held today

for murdered Sydney art curator Nick Waterlow. He was stabbed to death along with his daughter in an attack at her home in suburban Randwick last week. Chloe Waterlow was remembered at a service in Sydney yesterday. Police are still hunting for 42-year-old Antony Waterlow over the murders. A part of Melbourne's history has been destroyed in an arson attack. A historic miner's cottage in suburban Ringwood has been gutted by fire. And police suspect the blaze was deliberately lit. It's a great pity, it's well known to the local community. The cottage is a reminder of the area's mining history and is in a local park behind a popular nightclub. In finance news: Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Australian selectors have defended the retention of Mike Hussey for the opening Test against the West Indies at the Gabba. Hussey had a woeful Ashes series but his century in the final Test and solid one-day form in India has spared him the axe. I don't know if relief is the right word but I'm very, very happy to be part of the First XII.

Michael Hussey scored and is in good

knickers as far as we can tell. Paceman Doug Bollinger comes into the 12-man squad at the expense of his New South Wales team-mate Stuart Clark. Robert Allenby has fired a 7-under 65 to take a one-shot lead after the opening round of the Dubai World Championship.

Geoff Ogilvy had a good round going but was put off by a photographer on the 15th. Fair dinkum, aargh! Just shrug your shoulders, it's not good. Where did you get this? ----head. Ogilvy took double bogey at the last to drop back to 2-under. Wallabies coach Robbie Deans insists player burnout won't be a factor as the Wallabies look to maintain their 27-year unbeaten run against Scotland on Sunday at Murrayfield. 12 members of the side will be playing their fourth Test in as many weeks but Deans is confident player will not be an issue. David Pocock is the only player rested from Monday morning's 20-20 draw with Ireland. George Smith is back at open side flanker. Paceman Shoaib Akhtar won't make it to Australian shores this summer for Pakistan's 3-Test series against the Aussies.

Akhtar is recovering - but not from injury. He recently underwent secret liposuction surgery and can't play cricket for at least four months.

Test selectors have dumbed Stuart

Clark. Can one of Australia's

hardest working bowlers get back in

Unfortunately no. I know we all love

Stuey Clarke but I think he has

played his last Test. The 3-pronged

pace attack and throw Bollinger in.

His form has opinion too good in

recent months. Selectors have copped

a lot of flak for this team, only

one change. Stuey Clarke has slipped

down the ladder. Once Brett Lee gets

fully fit, he is in front of them as

well. Would you like to have seen

more changes? Phillip Hughes

couldn't come in. While Michael

Hussey didn't have a great Ashes

series, it saved Hussey. I hope the

selectors bat him at five. Once

Ponting goes, Clarke is your number

three batsman. He has to move up the

order. Hussey the fortunate one. He

scored a century in Test cricket and

pretty good form in one-day cricket.

Hughes, he is struggling. I am not

convinced in his technique. This is

something they have to get right

before the next Ashes series. The

selectors basically got it right.

The Irish have demanded a re-match.

French captain Thierry Henry

Jimmy, good look and see you next weekend. Just ahead - what's happening with bushfires in the worst affected States. But next, praise for the hero pilot who safely brought down his plane in the ocean off Norfork Island. You'll hear from those on board when Sunrise continues. Can I tell you a story, Rick? Does it have a 'wow' finish? WOMAN: Cut. VOICEOVER: TransACT proudly supports local community groups representing charity, sport and the arts. Because, like us, they're ready to make things happen. When we need a car, we call Thrifty - Australia's best-valued car and truck rental. Their skill in those difficult circumstances, in the dark on water, managed to put that plane down safely, was really the only reason why we all managed to get out in one piece. Praise for captain Dominic James and his first officer who landed their plane in the ocean off Norfolk Island. It was dark. It was stormy. And it was an emergency. You just heard from Dr David Helm who was on the medical transport jet. He's also being praised for continuing to look after the patient onboard as the plane went down. They'd run out of fuel on a flight from Samoa to Melbourne. And the story is making headlines around the world. This is 'The Guardian' in London.

Captain Dominic James managed to land the jet in choppy seas without it breaking up. All six people onboard got out and were rescued by a local fisherman. And, Nat, you've got a link to Captain James?

A friend of ours is a friend of his.

That is very ten ewe usly. She has

been trying to call him all night.

Good bloke? I think he is a great

bloke for trying to land the plane.

He circled the island and running

out of fuel. If we get through to

him, you will be the first to know.

What else is making news? New research on the long-term impacts of bullying. A report by the Wesley Mission has found childhood bullying continues to haunt victims into their adult lives affecting work, relationships and their ability to trust. We'll talk to Reverend Keith Garner from Wesley Mission after 7:00. But before that, we want to hear from you. Do you ever get over bullying? Email or SMS us.

We hear from the people who are

bullied. If you did it as a child,

how have you gone through life as

well? It is amazing how childhood

experiences stay with you throughout

your life. The other thing that was

great that came out are the ways

they children the power to be strong

enough to recover from things. If

you are bullied or a bully, we talk

about anti-bully strategies but why

don't we give kids the onwards and

upwards. You know how some kids can

- You don't mean to biff. I will sit

on them. Giving kids the ability to

manage and find strength within

themselves. The first lady of etiquette June Dally-Watkins says office workers have appalling phone manners. She says the way people often just answer the phone with a "yeah", "what" or even "speak to me". Ms Dally-Watkins says a formal "good morning" or "good afternoon" followed by your name is the only acceptable way to answer the phone. And she's warned it could be damaging business. Does June Dally-Watkins have a point? Email or SMS us.

Speak to me. Tell us all about it.

When I pick up the phone and go yo. You do!

You do!? If - if it has caller ID,

does it make a difference? Unless it

is the boss called from - calling

from Kochie's desk. It is a problem.

For your business as well. Finally, the research no man should miss. Drinking alcohol every day is good for men. It apparently cuts the risk of heart disease in males by more than one-third. Female drinkers don't benefit to same extent.

They don't have heart disease to the

same extent either. And experts are critical of the findings. They warn heavy drinking can increase the risk of other diseases.

It was a big study. 15,000 men and

26,000 women. They were followed

over 20 years. She are saying have a

standard glass of wine. Yes, a glass

of wine or beer with dinner. Is this

the same bloke who spoke about the

housework? No. Out of the VB

institute. A big hello to all the

business study kids at PLC Armidale.

We were talking about China, the

economy, they were such lovely,

lovely girls. What a good idea. They

you do any puppet shows like you do

I did a polo. Did you push it up.

They are bagging me. It was the

strut. Safari is in. You look sharp.

Look at you. Up next - this morning's news, sport and weather together. Then, the heatwaves and bushfires affecting three States. When will the threat ease? ANNOUNCER: And the award goes to... ..Sam Worthington. (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) And actor Sam Worthington wins 'GQ's Man of the Year as this Friday edition of Sunrise continues. Sydney's turn for the heat today. A top of 33 degrees by the coast but up to 41 in the west. A late shower or thunderstorm might cool things down a bit. Still to come this Sunrise... The outlook is that this season is going to be one of the most difficult fire seasons we've seen for many years. Soaring temperatures and strong winds. Several States are on bushfire alert. In 10 minutes on Sunrise - live briefings from fire chiefs as they prepare for a fight. Also... Their skill in those difficult circumstances, in the dark on water, managed to put that plane down safely was really the only reason why we all managed to get out in one piece. Praise for the hero pilot and his first officer who landed their plane in the dark, in a storm, in the ocean. Coming up - first-hand accounts of the Norfolk Island emergency. Plus, another 'Twilight' exclusive with Hollywood's hottest star right now, Robert Pattinson. And forget lip synching. We've got a Britney hit like you've never heard it before as the Friday edition of Sunrise continues. Right now, though, it's news time on Sunrise. Here's Nat with the 7:00 update. A new story of heroism has emerged from the Norfolk Island plane drama. The doctor onboard the doomed medivac mission continued to treat his critically ill patient as the plane ditched into the ocean. Dr David Helm arrived in Sydney last night looking tired but relieved. He praised hero pilot Captain Dominic James and the co-pilot. Their skill in those difficult circumstances, in the dark on water, managed to put that plane down safely,

was really the only reason why we all managed to get out in one piece. The plane was forced to plunge into the ocean in bad weather. Dr Helm treated his critically ill patient as they waited to be rescued. It's just been an example to everyone of what can be achieved against all odds.

But the good doctor was reluctant to spend too long in the spotlight last night. Hero pilot and eligible bachelor Captain Dominic James and his co-pilot also avoided attention. As you can imagine they've had a very tumultuous 24-hour period. They're really tired, they'd like to get back to their homes to be with their families. The CareFlight patient is in a stable condition and is counting her blessings. If you'd spent 90 minutes in the water, in the dark when the aircraft sunk beside you, you'd know exactly how lucky you'd been. On Norfolk Island, the dramatic rescue story is unfolding. A farmer on a cliff top spotted a tiny light at sea then a boat crew saw something flashing on their radar. Took us straight to them and from there we picked up their vests. Yeah, they were really glad to see us. Questions remain about why the plane was running out of fuel and why there wasn't a plan B to fly on to New Zealand. Firefighters remain on alert throughout Australia's south-east

with warnings in place across three States today.

A blaze on South Australia's Yorke Peninsula burnt through 600 hectares of farmland yesterday.

Today, the heat is on New South Wales with catastrophic conditions forecast for the State's south-west. The outlook is that this season is going to be one of the most difficult fire seasons we've seen for many years. Severe conditions are expected in parts of Victoria. A driver and his navigator have been killed on the first day of the Adelaide Classic Car Rally. Victorian men Gary Tierney and David Carra were killed on impact when their white Porsche slammed into a tree

in the Adelaide Hills yesterday afternoon. Crash investigators are trying to work out what went wrong.

The other rally cars have returned to Adelaide. A Sydney woman has been charged with the murder of her baby daughter 13 years ago. The 2-day-old girl was last seen alive at Auburn Hospital. Her body has never been found. The 34-year-old, who can't be named for legal reasons, has always denied any part in her daughter's disappearance. She's now been ordered to face the Supreme Court next month on a murder charge. The New South Wales parole board will meet today to decide the fate of Victor Chang's killer. Phillip Choon Tee Lim was due for release earlier this month

but the decision was overturned to allow time for a review. Lim has served his minimum 18 year sentence for the murder of the Sydney heart surgeon in 1991. It's feared he won't have to serve out his 6-year parole period if he's released and sent back to his home country of Malaysia. In finance news: Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Stuart Clark is determined to fight his way back into the Aussie Test team after losing his spot to Doug Bollinger for next week's series opener against the West Indies. Clark out-performed his Blues team-mate against Tasmania yesterday finishing with three scalps to Bollinger's one. But it was the 28-year-old's recent one-day form that got him over the line. Stuart's very unlucky not to be selected but we've been very impressed with the form of Doug Bollinger in the recent Indian series. Shane Watson retained his role as opener ahead of Phillip Hughes. The AFL has warned players ahead of next week's national draft

that anyone who refuses to honour a contract will have to sit out for 23 months. It comes as interest intensifies in former Saint Luke Ball who's desperate to get to Collingwood but could be taken by Melbourne, Brisbane or Essendon. The Bombers confirmed their interest in Ball at the launch of their 2010 membership campaign yesterday but the midfielder has thus far refused to meet with the club. Robert Allenby has fired a course-record 7-under 65 to take a one-shot lead after the opening round of the Dubai World Championship. Geoff Ogilvy had a good round going but was put off by a photographer on the 15th. Fair dinkum, aargh! Just shrug your shoulders, it's not good. Where did you get this? ----head. Ogilvy took double bogey at the last to drop back to 2-under. The Irish Football Association has lodged an official protest with FIFA and is calling for a match replay following the now-infamous handball from France's Thierry Henry that cost Ireland a spot at the World Cup. Irate Irish commentators have labelled Henry 'Le Cheat' and branded the incident "the hand of frog" in reference to Diego Maradona's infamous "hand of God" goal 23 years ago. Soon on Sunrise - a closer look at the bushfire threat affecting three Australian States. But first it's back to Nat for a look at the rest of today's weather. And the heat and bushfire alert is big news. A catastrophic fire warning is in place in southwest New South Wales.

Yesterday we were talking about the

big high over South Australia and it

has moved east. Sunrise weather for Beacon Lighting. Keep cool this summer with a ceiling fan from Beacon. Fan sale on now. There are clear skies over most of Queensland today. Townsville is headed for 31 degrees. 41 for Mt Isa. Maroochydore can expect 30 degrees. Sunny in Toowoomba. Brisbane will be a sunny 31. Into New South Wales and it will be mostly sunny in Coffs Harbour. Possible showers for Broken Hill. Late storms for Newcastle.

There's also the chance of a late change in Sydney after tops of 33.

Mostly dry, high cloud over Canberra. There's the chance of thunder for both Wagga and Albury. A few showers developing in Victoria today. Ballarat will be wet and windy. Bendigo is headed for 36. 34 for Melbourne today. Launceston will be raining. Rain too for Hobart too. Showers for Adelaide today. Port Lincoln and Ceduna can also expect showers. Possible storms for Coober Pedy. A hot 40 degrees in Alice Springs with an afternoon storm on the way. Darwin can also expect a storm. Over to WA and it will be partly cloudy in both Bunbury and Perth. Showers clearing in Kalgoorlie. Sunny in Karratha and Broome. More weather details at 7:30. There's no doubt we've hit bushfire season. Temperatures across three States yesterday soared above 40 degrees.

And that combined with strong winds had firefighters on high alert. For the latest, we're joined by Andrew Lawson from the Country Fire Service in South Australia, Shane Fitzsimmons from the New South Wales Rural Fire Service

And Russell Reese. Good morning to you all. Deputy Lawson, we'll start with you.

Your fire level warnings were at catastrophic yesterday.

What's the situation in South Australia at the moment and what can residents expect today?

We had three districts catastrophic

fire warning. However today the

forecast for South Australia is

cooler. We had in excess of 100

fires started and we have 11 fires

still going. Any property threatened

at the moment? No property threaten

at the moment P but properties on

the Eyre Peninsula and Yorke

Peninsula but fire fight irs have

been able to contain those fires.

Firefighters on your team were

injured. What is their status at the

moment. They are stable. Two of our

appliances collided at a fire on

appliances collided at a fire on the Yorke Peninsula and as a result of

that, five firefighters were

transported to hospital and two or

air-lifted by helicopter to

Adelaide. Good to see they are not

seriously injured and a cooler day in South Australia. To New South Wales now, Commissioner Fitzsimmons, there's more hot weather to get through in coming days, isn't there?

What South Australia had New South

Wales will get now. We have total

fire bans right across the majority

of New South Wales. Temperatures the

high 30s and mid 40s. Humidity is

low and strong persistent north-west

winds up to 60km/h in many parts

winds up to 60km/h in many parts of New South Wales which resulted in

the Riverina going no catastrophic

fire danger rating.

fire danger rating. As the heat goes

across, will other areas get that

catastrophic warning? Not

necessarily. We are expecting in our

deliberations with the Bureau of

Meteorology p certainly many parts

of the in stand will be the subject

of fire restrictions, certainly

severe fire weather and we will know

later on this afternoon on the

prospects of cat

prospects of catastrophic fire

conditions. Now to Russell, there

were conditions similar to Black

Saturday. Did that eventuate? We

were long after that. The new fire

rating gives a good indication. We

were bordering on extreme in parts

of Victoria yesterday and the good

news is we have only a few small

fires and Victoria is in two parts

today. The northern part will hit

the high 40s, the bottom end of the

weather that New South Wales is

having. And the other part will get

the cooler weather. Summer is here.

It has completely dried a lot of the

fuel in south-east Victoria. And

that low humidity is having an

effect. Thanks for bringing us up to

date. All your guys do a great job

and hopefully they will have a quiet

day today. We often hear about the trauma caused to children by bullying but what about the long-term impacts? A report by the Wesley Mission has found bullying continues to haunt even adults affecting victims' work, relationships and their ability to trust. For more we're joined by Wesley Mission CEO Reverend Keith Garner. Welcome. Reverend, explain to us how the adults you surveyed

That 70% figure, 7 out of 10

That 70% figure, 7 out of 10 are still feeling the effects when they

grow up. That is shocking. It is. If

you think of the number of people

and that number. We made a point of

looking at not only who has been

bullied but what does it do to them

today, the quality of life, the

workplace, in terms of them needing

help and counselling. It is a real

issue. It is not just a young

people's issue but a society issue.

We look at school-age children. You

got here 40% of people who bullied

are then most likely to grow up and

still be bullies. I got an email

from someone "

from someone "Systematic workplace

bullying has left her sister to have

a break down and leave work.

a break down and leave work." These

bullies as kids we see as bullies as

adults. Many of the people who are

bullied become bullies because they

find no other way of dealing with

it. As you said, a lot of people

don't report it. If someone is

physically hurt they may say

something about it. It is a

community response we are asking

for. If it cares on into adult life,

it is a serious issue. Pack bullying

which is a dreadful term itself.

Some pack bullying wept on for more

than a year. The thought of someone

for a year being hounded by a group

of people. That was significant

number of people who talked about

it. We are probably never going to

stop it. It has been going on

forever and to a degree it will

continue. You are pushing for

intervention and the balance of

resilience factors. It has to be a

community-wide response. The schools

are critical. The Wesley mission

working with schools and being able

to spot bullies and where people can

talk freely about their experience.

As always, you expect an audience

like us to say there needs to be

resources. Recognising that the

earlier you deal with the issue the

more likely you are to solve it. It

will lead to the low self-esteem

with problems later in life. It is

an Australia problem, not a school

problem. No one deserves to be host

out. If someone is being bullied. It

is not a case of looking on. Do they

talk about the dramatic stories that

happened to children. In a way is

clouding the issue because "

clouding the issue because "It

doesn't happen in our grew. doesn't happen in our grew." And

girls are very much victims of

bullying. You think it is the lads

in the playground but it is the

girls. Girls do the whole

cyberspacing. Some can look at a

bully and some handle the bully and some handle the situation " bully and some handle the situation

"Buzz off" and some can't. Building

resilience is a critical issue and

talking about it. That is very

important. Brings out from behind

the curtain. Having the resources

rks knowing more about it. That is

why wre encourage og people to

download the website and what are

the issues that come from is. Maybe

the bullying that you reported

wouldn't be as pref leapt if people

could get out of T It is a

significant study. Thank you for

joining us. Good luck with where you

go with it. Let us know what you

think about building resilience and strength. Rihanna continues to move on from Chris Brown after he assaulted her. She's released the first single from her new album. And the music clip has everyone talking. Nelson Aspen had your very first look for us. Nelson, it's quite a dark video, isn't it?

The song is called Russian Roulette.

It is R-rated. R-ratings are for

adults only movies here in the

States. Rihanna says she got all her

emotions out. You hear it on the

album and see it in this video. Take a look. (SINGS) # Take a breath, take it deep # Calm yourself, he says to me # If you play, you play for keeps # Take the gun, and count to three # I m sweating now # Moving slow # No time to think, my turn to go # And you can see my heart beating # You can see it through my chest # And I m terrified but I m not leaving # Know that I must must pass this test # So just pull the trigger

There are more violent images we

didn't show you there. More violent

images, wow. It's just very - I

don't know. She's - She is obviously

trying to make a statement and a

pretty powerful one. What are the

critics saying about it? Are they

saying it is appropriate for her?

People are sort of behind her right

now. She has been perceived as the

victim for so long since the Chris

Brown incident but I think it is

time for her to stop talking. She

has done her interviews and now she

is letting the album speak for her.

Maybe the next album will be

brighter to reflect her moving on. In other entertainment news, what has Brad Pitt turned down to be with his family?

You can not put a price on time with

your kids. Brad Pitt was offered $

your kids. Brad Pitt was offered $5

million to spend his Halloween in

the united Arab Emirates at a

balance. He brb at a ball. He went

without the money and he went as a

big kid out on hallow waob night.

Angelina went as a zombie. You can't

say that daddy is going offer on

United Arab em mats. Imagine opening

your door and Brad Pitt and

Angelina. In their neighbourhood it

is not much of of a surprise. Good

to know. Thanks Nelson. Shortly, how we could all be getting around in the not-too-distant future. We'll take a look at the newest green transport. And then... # With a taste of your lips # I'm on a ride # You're toxic. # Kate Miller-Heidke has a new take on a Britney hit at 7:50 on Sunrise. taxpayers will have to foot the 3 and a half million dollar bill.. for the delay in opening the ACT prison. The Greens say there needs to be better communication.. with such big construction projects. The government's also been criticised for a 360 million dollar blowout on the cotter dam expansion. Canberrans will get their chance to say goodbye today.. to one of the most well- known people in our political history. Jim Pead died on Sunday.. aged 85. He was the first president of the ACT Legislative Assembly. He'll be farewelled.. at a funeral in Forrest. Another scorcher for the capital.. with temps expected to hit the high 30's again today. There's a total fire ban for the ACT and New South Wales. And the first ever Indigenous All Stars team will be announced today. Five Raiders players.. are up for selection. Back at 11.

Terms and conditions down at the

bottom. Bullying, a lot of people

saying that the effects of bullying

lasts a whole lifetime. It is a bit

scary as a parent when you think how

many childhood experiences last with

you for the rest of your life. The

Wesley Mission found that 7 out of

10 kids still carry the effects on.

The events changed the trajectory of

my life. 18 years later I still feel

affected and angry. "

affected and angry. "I was bullied

throughout primary school and high

school. I am 21. I think I have

beaten depression but I have low

self-confidence and get anxious.

was a bully but it was only to fit

in. Every time I tormented a victim

I was laughing on the outside but

grieving on the inside. I have kids

now and every day I wish I could

find that boy and apologise and tell

him I was the weak one.

him I was the weak one." Most of

these bullies the workplace were

bullied. It can be a replica of a

schoolyard. The real interesting

thing to come out of this is how can

we arm our kid was resilience. We

talk about bullying and the problems

and it is obviously something you

can't stop. How Dow arm children? A

lot of it comes back to the parents

and the advice we give our kids. If

it is a trivial -mmm, bullying is

never trivial but I think there are

degrees of bullying and there is no

justification for any of it. If they

are saying, gee, you got a big nose

rks which I used to get a lot at

school, surprise, surprise,

surprise. Say stick it and walk

away. What is seen trivial to one

person may not be trivial to

another. Maybe you got to arm the

kids that are more affected by it

with the strength of the kids who

are not affected by it - Is that

part of the job of the parents and different part of the job of the parents and

differentiate between the two of them.

On the way - the latest in green machines. And a new sound for Britney fans as Kate Miller-Heidke performs the hit 'Toxic'. First, though, here's Nat with the news headlines.

Catastrophic fire conditions are forecast for parts of New South Wales today as an intense heatwave moves across from South Australia. Temperatures will hit the mid 40s in parts of the Far and Central West and Riverina districts. Coupled with low humidity and strong nor-westerly winds,

it will create perfect bushfire conditions.

With the front coming through

tomorrow we are not expecting a

repeat of this widespread activity

but certainly many parents of inland

will be the subject of fire

restrictions sm certainly severe and extreme fire weather. Fire weather warnings are also in place for parts of SA and Victoria today. The hero pilot who made an emergency landing off Norfolk Island yesterday is back in Sydney but avoiding the spotlight. Captain Dominic James flew into Sydney last night

with his co-pilot and the rest of the CareFlight team. As you can imagine they've had a very tumultuous 24-hour period. They're really tired, they'd like to get back to their homes to be with their families.

The pilot may have some questions to answer from crash investigators including why there wasn't enough fuel onboard to fly on to New Zealand. Women and children who've left the 'Oceanic Viking' are behind bars in Indonesia - despite promises they wouldn't be locked up. The five women and five children are being held in a separate building of the Tanjung Pinang detention centre. The Australian Government had said they'd be in community housing. You come, we are not come outside. REPORTER: You're not allowed outside? That's lock lock. Indonesian officials say the asylum seekers - and the Indonesian Government - expect the group to be transferred to Australia soon. Sydney's mounted police have had to rescue one of their horses

after its hoof became stuck in a drain. The horse ran into trouble during a patrol in Bankstown last night. Fire crews and vets calmed the animal down before performing a very delicate operation. Once we sedated the horse we were able to use our spreaders to spread the grate and then remove the horse's foot. The horse quickly found its feet and only suffered a few scrapes and bruises. In finance news: Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Australian selectors have made it clear that Phil Hughes's prolific run-scoring over the last year won't be enough to earn him a Test recall. All-rounder Shane Watson will remain at the top of the order for the first Test against the Windies

leaving Hughes on the outer. The selection panel thinks his current form isn't up to scratch. We were looking, to be fair, for a bit more form in Shield cricket before he came back into the Test side. Stuart Clark is the only casualty from the side that lost the Ashes decider with Doug Bollinger coming into the squad. Aussie golfer Robert Allenby has shot a course-record 7-under par 65 to grab a one-shot lead after the opening round of the Dubai World Championship. Adam Scott struggled with the putter at times but still carded a solid 4-under 68. The Irish Football Association has lodged an official protest with FIFA and is calling for a replay after Thierry Henry's blatant handball cost Ireland a spot at next year's World Cup. Ireland's FA says the ruling has damaged football's integrity. Holden star Will Davison hammed it up for the cameras yesterday but has promised all-out attack in this weekend's penultimate round of the V8 Supercar championship at Barbagallo Raceway. Drivers hit the track for practice later today.

The latest is a motorbike that claims to be the fastest, lightest and cleanest in the world. John Lloyd joins us from Zero Motorcycles. Good morning. Why is this bike so special?

This is sounding very, very cool.

Fast, light and clean. Tell us more

about this bike. It is great. You

can see Luky Luke back here. This is

the fastest and cleanest motorbike

that we got. What Luke is on now is

the dirt bike. We outfited the dirt

bike with street tyres. What is

great is that I am having a

conversation with you while he is

cranking around on it. When he goes

and charges it, how long does it

take to charge and how long does it

last for? The way Luke is going, he

can get up to two hours of riding

time and just go to a normal plug-in

socket and the other neat thing the

batteries, we developed the

batteries to swap in and

batteries to swap in and out in 60

seconds. If he is not tyred and he

wants to ride, pop it in and go.

That was meant to happen, I am sure.

Show us the bike that you got, which

is the non-dirt bike. That is the

regular road bike? I'm not sure what

I call them. This is our street

bike. This will be available in

Australia in June. It is already

available in the United States and

Europe. This bike is made for the road. It's good.

But after the break - a Britney hit without the lip synching. Kate Miller-Heidke is next on Sunrise. Accor is getting ready for the holidays with a summer sale. So why not take a break in Victoria? You can hit the shops in Melbourne, go wine tasting in the Yarra Valley or try body surfing in Geelong. But best of all - rooms at participating Accor hotels and resorts start at just $109 a night. Plus in the spirit of getting away from it all, you have one more chance to win a $1,000 holiday gift card. We've been giving away two every day this week. As you know, Britney Spears is in the country at the moment. But she's been getting a bit of bad press for miming her shows. Despite that, her songs remain some of the biggest hits of the decade. So, it's no surprise other
