Easter blitz - police out in force

as the national holiday road toll

hits 5. Holy celebrations - hits 5. Holy celebrations - the

world pauses for religious

reflection. Job of a lifetime - the

search for the world's greatest

salesperson. Also this morning -

talk show blunders. The Australians

are basically English rednecks. You

get down there, "How are you, good

to see you, hello." The most

awkward TV interviews ever. The

return of the A-Team. It is

Saturday 3 April 2010.

Live from Brekkie Central here is

Samantha and Larry. Good morning it

is Holy Saturday. We have got

Easter celebrations covered from

all angles this morning. Right now

in Rome Christians are marking the

death of Jesus Christ. These are

live shots of the way of the cross

ceremony and we will have much more

of that and how the rest of the

world is spending Easter throughout

the program. Plus, for you today,

what makes men tick. Sam has been

doing extensive studies here. It is

a new study that says it is all in

the brain. I came up with nothing.

Is it just a bad excuse for bad

behaviour. That story coming up in

this next hour. The new Katie Price

conversation, this time the British

model is accused of exploiting her

children as models for her new

fashion line. What will Peter Andre

think? Let's begin with that it

willest news from Sarah Cumming.

Good morning everyone. Victorian

Police say they are furious after

catching a motor sick list at

double the speed limit hours after

a crash left two riders dead and a

teenager fighting for life. An 18-

year-old girl was critically

injured when a lone rider smashed

head on into a 60-strong convoy of

the Outlaws motorcycle club here

Shepparton about 2pm yesterday. Two

men were killed. Last night a 26-

year-old motorcyclist was clocked

at 170 kilometres an hour in an 80

zone as police vowed to catch hoons.

We are all working. If you are

doing wrong thing you will get

caught. His bike was seized and his

licence suspended.

The family of Claire Murray has

appealed for understanding after

the young Perth mum died during

emergency surgery in Singapore. The

WA Government is yesterday to

decide whether it will demand

repayment of the controversial loan

that paid for her second live transplant.

Michael Murray arrived in Singapore

just in time to say goodbye. To see

your child dying in front of you

is... Claire pleaded for a last

chance at life for the sake of her

two children after her first

transplant failed due to drug use.

The quarter of a million dollar

interest tree government lifeline

sparked a vicious public backlash

in Perth that reached her grieving

parents 3,900 kilometres away. We

understand them and we truly

understand them. Like, 15 years ago,

you know what I mean, I didn't know

what a junkie was. We feel sorry

for the people that don't. We would

ask them to please have a little

think about it and think deep.

Claire's medical bills are now

expected to reach as much as

$400,000, much more than that

controversial loan. Her family

don't know how they will pay it or

how they will repay WA taxpayers if

the government demands its money

back but there is no regrets. If we

didn't get up here and didn't have

a go then maybe we would have had

to live with that for the rest of

our lives and we are happy we made

will be the effort to get up here. Her body

will be flown home to Perth on

Tuesday. The Easter holiday hasn't

given Qantas a break with

passengers left stranded and angry

after more mechanical problems. A

fuel leak forced the cancellation

of an Adelaide to Sydney flight

delaying passengers for up to 10

hours. I was going home to see my

family so it is like a whole extra

day lost. Flight 650 to Brisbane

was going nowhere stuck was going nowhere stuck on the

tarmac in Perth after what the

airline described as a problem with

the plane's wing flaps. Very loud

greating noise and the more times

they tried to find it the worse it

got. Five hours later a replacement

plane was found but then a Brisbane

to LA flight was grounded.

Passengers have spent the the night

in motels. It follows a midair

engine failure and fire during

landing earlier this week.

China has wideened thery -- Rio

Tinto bribery case to investigate

other steel industry executives

following Stern Hu's inconviction.

He was gaoled for ten years for

taking bribes and stealing trade

secrets. China rejected claims of

political motives and is vowing to

target every executive named as target every executive named as

having paid Hu bribes. This means

at least 19 other Chinese Nationals

including two Morrie yo Tinto

exployees also face charges. A 17-

year-old girl has been named as one

of the Moscow bombers.

Photographers show the teen holding

a pistol, posing with her late

husband, a well-known Chechen

Russian newspaper militant killed last year. A

Russian newspaper says the girl was

one of two black widows who blew

themselves up on Moscow's metro on

Monday killing 40 people. An artist

Simon. minutes. Now with sport here is

Good morning. The Roosters have

ened a run of six consecutive Good

Friday losses to to Broncos winning

at the Sydney Football Stadium last

night. Todd Carney was the home

side star crossing for the second

try to open up a 12-nil lead. A few moments later the moments later the Roosters found

space down the left to stretch the

lead to 18 at the break.

Minichiello goes in to score. There

was a flicker of a Broncos comeback

and they grabbed the first try of

the second half but it was quickly

entinge wished as Carney put the

finishing touchs to the wing. The

Roosters bouncing back from last

week's mauling by the Dogs. The week's mauling by the Dogs. The

Melbourne Storm has maintained its

unbeaten start to the finish after

a win over the Dragons yesterday.

It took over 40 minutes for the

first try of the match after two

Cameron Smith penaltys in the first

half. Both sides were unbeaten

before kick off but it was the

damage. Storm inflighting most of the

are Billy Slater helped prove Melbourne

are again the team to beat this

year. They wrapped up the points in

style to make it four from four.

The Western Force has broken the

drought in the Super 14 season with

a victory over the Stormers in

Perth. It was a happy return to

action for Force flanker David

Pocock as he crossed for the first

try of the patch. The visitors started the second

started the second half blightly

with some desperate Force defence

keeping them at bay. Did he get it

down. It is no try. The lead

changed hands several times in the

second half as both teams traded

penalties but with the full-time

hooter blown and his team two

points down David Hill landed the

killer below, the drop

killer below, the drop goal to

snatch the win. Women's world

surfing champ Stephanie Gilmore

will take on Rebecca Woods in the

quarter-finals of the Rip Curl Pro

at Bells Beach after timing the

surf yesterday to beat tiler Wright

in their third round heat. Lewis

Hamilton has shrubed off his off

could not finish after problems

with his Red Bull car. Sam, if I

had a dollar for every bloke who

came up to me yesterday at the fish

markets and said, "Sam Armitage is

George use, how do I meet her?" George use, how do I meet her?" At

the fish market. I am passing it on

on behalf of those blokes. It is

beautiful to know trawlermen and

fishmongers adore you. There were

some good looking roosters in among

them. I must head down there. Maybe

we can do an OB from the fish

markets one day. Let's have a lock

at the weather now. Here is your Easter Saturday forecast.

Easter Saturday forecast. Weekend

Sunrise weather for sunny Queen eggs.

Simon, can I ask you Simon, can I ask you what you got

for Good Friday lunch? We had fish,

funny about that. And prawns. We

did it all again last night with

the neighbours. Did any of the

blokes come up and say, "I love Sam,

please give her this bucket of

prawns." Or, "Here is some prawns." Or, "Here is some pine

patagonian tooth fish." Brad in

particular was leading the charge.

Good morning to you Brad. I said I

would pass that on. I love oysters

too. People say that to Sam all of

the time. What makes a difference

is chocolates, seafood and flowers.

Definitely chocolates because our

Easter bunny is empty. On behalf of Easter bunny is empty. On behalf of

everyone at the morning -- sunrise

I apologise for her empty bunny.

Now we know what makes women tick.

It is almost 7.15. Police are out

in force this Easter long weekend

keeping drivers in check on our

roads. The national toll has risen

to five with most deaths due to

motorcycle incidents. Tens of

thousands of people have been

breath tested across the country

with thousands booked for speeding

offences. Joining us now is offences. Joining us now is Victorian Police Deputy

Commissioner Ken Lay and David

Campbell. How are motorists fairing

overall so far in your opinion?

Look, Larry, we have been out there

in force and generally they have

been pretty good although having

said that we are catching quite a

few drink-drivers and speeders.

Sadly we have had a double fatality

yesterday. We hear the word blitz a

lot. How big is this lot. How big is this blitz in

Victoria alone? We have got about

4,000 police focusing on road

policing issues over the Easter

period so this is the biggest

operation we have ever had. We have

the air wing, booze buses, drug

buses, uniformed cars, unmarked

cars, extra mobile camera hours,

automatic numberplate recognition,

everything we can possibly throw at this

this to try to keep the toll down.

You have it all going on out there.

Double demerit points apply in New

South Wales, Western Australia and

the ACT, not the case for Victoria

and other states, why not? Look,

over the years we have watched New

South Wales closely and watched

Western Australia closely and

sometimes we think the evidence is

a bit patchy although having said that every holiday

that every holiday period we look

what happens right across Australia

and if we think it is going to make

a big difference we will certainly

be talking to the government about

it. Let's go to David camable in

Woonona, what measures are in place

to protect your roads this Easter

long eke en. Here in swales a

similar police effort under

operation tortoise, which I launched launched with the deputy

commissioner last week, that is

police out in force using the

technology available to them and of

course also the fixed speed cameras

here in New South Wales. Earlier

this week I announced we will be

reinstituting mobile speed cameras

in a couple of months. They are not

in use this weekend but police are

out there in force and a strong

public education campaign to say to

people drive to the speed limit,

don't drink and drive, wear your

seat bell. If you are on a long

journey take a rest break every two

hours and stretch your legs and get

some fresh air. We hear those

messages over and over again.

Statisticly, are we seige an

improvement year on year? This year

so far we have had more deaths on

our roads in New South Wales than

last year. We are at about 110 this

year which is about year which is about eight more than

last year but bringing it down to

this Easter weekend, last Easter

there were nine people lost their

lives on New South Wales roads. So

far this Easter, touch wood, only

one person has died and I hope that

remains the total, sad as it is but

it is pleasing to see that so far

so good this Easter weekend. David,

what you see are the

what you see are the main dangers

for motorists? Last year - last

calendar year we saw almost 50% of

fatalities on New South Wales roads

being speed related. All of the

research, the police investigation,

the Centre for road safety follow

up of that indicated speed was a

significant factor in about 50% of

the road deaths last year. Of

course for me that comes course for me that comes down to

driver responsibility. Every driver

can ease off the accelerator or put

their foot on the brake to make

sure they drive to the speed limit.

That is a message I will

continuously reinforce because it

is a simple thing to make a

difference in that way by simply

driving to the speed limit but of

course also driving to the

conditions. The speed limit on a

road just nearby here,

road just nearby here, the F6

between Wollongong and Sydney is

110 but often at the top of a pass

there is heavy fog, so you should

not drive in heavy fog at 110. That

comes back to driver responsibility.

David cam bol and Deputy

Commissioner Ken Lay, thanks for

joining us. If you are heading off

on the roads take it easy.

It is Easter Saturday here but in

some parts of the world they are

still celebrating Good Friday. To

find out what is happening around

the globe we are joined by our

religion expert Dr Keith Suter in

Sydney, journalist Mirella Cestaro

in London and Mark Joyella in New

York. Let's start at home first.

How did we, Australians, celebrate

Good Friday. Good Friday

commemorates the death of Jesus so

it is a day in which

it is a day in which you avoid the

eating of meat. We had a lot of

religious services being held,

probably better attended than at

any since Christmas and a lot of

religious processions as well. I

should know this, six years of

Catholic high school, but what is

significant about Easter Saturday

today? Easter Saturday commemorates

when Jesus is still dead in the

tomb so if you like, this

tomb so if you like, this is the

low point of Holy Week, which began

last Sunday with Palm Sunday. We

had during the week the examples of

Jesus, the leader as servant, his

death yesterday and then people

assuming it is all over and done,

with it is all finished, and of

course we are looking forward

tomorrow to the resurrection of

Jesus. So today is ady of

reflection, usually Bible study,

conferences, that sort of conferences, that sort of thing.

Australians aren't really that

religious, Keith, but what do you

think Easter does mean for

Australians as a whole given the

significance of it in the calendar?

You are right. Australia is seen as

a very secular country with a low

level of interest in religion but

it is quite interesting that

certainly this weekend, along with

Christmas, there will be very high church attendances and also church attendances and also if you

go around the book shops you will

find an amazing array of books that

people are interested in Jesus.

They may not be going to the church

on a regular basis but there is

certainly a great interest in the

personality of Jesus himself. There

does seem to be a lot of interest

this year. Mirella, you are in

London, bad weather could marr

Easter celebrations in the UK. Easter celebrations in the UK. It

certainly has already. You know, a

young girl, a teenager died - she

lost her life in a terrible coach

crash in Scotland. There is about

20,000 homes in Northern Ireland

that still do not have power. That

is less than yesterday, there was

about 40,000 or 50,000 yesterday.

Nonetheless it is not so much of a

fun Easter for them. The Queen has

spoken I believe.

spoken I believe. She has shown her

generosity. She has. Every year she

takes part in the Maundy money

service. It is a different

cathedral around the country. It

has been happening for 800 years.

It is a really rich and traditional

part of Easter celebrations in the

UK. She gives them a little pouch

full of money. It is only ?5.50 so it doesn't

it doesn't go that far, it is about

11 bucks but it is a lovely moment

where the public can connect with

the Queen. We of course always look

to the Vatican at this time of year.

We have got some pictures coming up

here. These are live shots of the

Good Friday services. Just

beautiful the pictures we are seige

here at the Vatican, the Way of the

Cross on the Good Friday services. Talk us

Talk us through what is happening

at the Vatican. Everyyear -- every

year the Pope leads the

celebrations of Good Friday and the

commemoration of the crucifixion of

Jesus, this is the Way of the Cross.

It normally happens in the

Colosseum in Rome and it is - he

talks us through the stations of

the cross and the final hours of

Jesus + life

Jesus + life where he was walking

up towards Calvary and where he was

finally crucified and the moments

where he was helped around by -

helped out by Joseph of ah are ma

thee ya and so on. It is a

beautiful service and there are

hundreds of thousands of people in

Rome that flock to see this. It is

a very magical and spiritual part of the Easter celebrations. of the Easter celebrations.

Pilgrims from all over the world.

That would be an incredible

experience to see that going on in

Rome and the Vatican. To Mark now

in New York. Most of Australia gets

a public holiday on Good Friday and

Easter Monday. It isn't the same

for Americans, is it? We don't get

those. In fact, we get neither one

of them. We get Easter Sunday, which,

which, of course is usually a day

when most of us are off anyway. It

is not a federal holiday. A lot of

businesses do close early on Good

Friday and walking around New York

City this afternoon it is getting

to be the end of the business day

here on Good Friday in New York and

I saw a lot of folks out and about

and a lot of energy in the streets

of New York but the weather today

is absolutely brilliant. It was a is absolutely brilliant. It was a

terrible week with a lot of rain,

just miserable weather, but now as

we reach the Easter weekend it is

perfect. Just the way you would

imagine it to be for an Easter

weekend whereas you see there will

be a lot of Easter egg hunts for

kids and, of course, here like in

other parts of the world there will

be big attendance at churches. I

walked by a futurechs in Manhattan

on the way over here and on the way over here and noticed a

lot of people dashing in just to

check in on Good Friday and almost

certainly they will be back on sun.

That sounds good. Don't worry about

the public holiday thing, Larry and

I don't get them either. We will

talk to you soon.

The crew are very grateful you have

given them each a pouch with ?5 in

it. There is a new basketball

prodigy in America. He is being

touted as the next Michael Jordan.

The amazing thing is he is only 10

years oold. NBC's -- our NBC

journalist has the story. His ball

handling calls -- skills are solid.

I heard you have some pretty me

nominal hands. Yeah. I saw him nominal hands. Yeah. I saw him

dribbling the ball and I say,

"Wow." He is a ten-year-old that

has game. I am not even - not even

halfway there yet. So good this

straight A fifth grader is already

getting the attention of college

coaches. It is not anything

negative or overbearing or

recruiting or anything like that.

They are being nice and hospitable

and saying that they recognise the and saying that they recognise the

talent. They say my goal is keep

working hard, stay humble and play

as hard as you can every day you

step on the court. Many critics

would say it is too much for a 10-

year-old kid. His biggest decision

at this stage should be chocolate

or decisions but Jaylin's father

insists it is not Abbas set ball he

is using basketball to give him a

lesson in life. If he never grew lesson in life. If he never grew

another inch and never played a

game in the NBF. It wouldn't matter

because we are enjoying the journey

at the moment. This is what it is

all about. Jaylin Flemming,

remember the name, he just may be

destined for basketball faifplt I

love it. I love it as much as the

world. Really? It means the world to me. This

to me. This is the way to go. Get

your kids playing sport early and

make them look after you when you

are older. Later this hour, the

incredible imitations. Music fans

pay tribute to their favourite

stars and videos.

Are you going share that around?

Sarah can do the news and Sarah can do the news and we will

eat that egg. It is news time and chocolate time.

Good morning. The Christmas island

detention centre is officially full

after three boats were intercepted

off WA in the past five days. 79

suspected asylum seekers were

onboard the latest illegal vessel

intercepted near Ashmore Reef late

yesterday, including two young

girls who reportedly fled Iran. It is

is the 34th boat to reach our

shores this year. The group has

been taken to Christmas island for

health and security checks pushing

the number of detainees there above

the centre's capacity. Perth mum

Claire Murray's body will be flown

home next week as the WA Government

ways up whether to demand her so-

called live loan be repaid. The

former drug addict's father former drug addict's father says he

understands why many people are

angry. The government lend $250,000

for her second live transplant. We

truly understand them because like

15 years ago, you know what I mean,

I didn't know what a junkie was. We

feel sorry for the people that

don't and we would ask them to

please have a little think about it

and think deep. The mum of two died

on Thursday after developing on Thursday after developing

inoperable blood clots. The Easter

Road toll stands at five after

yesterday's horror motorbike crash

in Victoria and fatalitys in South

Australia, New South Wales and

Canberra. Victorian Police were

left outraged after catching 863

drivers speeding in the first 34

hours of their Easter blitz while

near Shepparton two people were

killed and a teenager critically

injured. We are catching quite a

few drink-drivers and quite a few

speeders and sadly we have had a

double fatality yesterday. Almost

1,500 drivers were caught speeding

in New South Wales in just 24 hours.

Police and bouncers will be

questioned over the death of a man

during a drunken altercation

outside a Sydney pub. Two brothers

were being ejected from were being ejected from the

Campbelltown Club Hotel early

yesterday when the club manager was

punched in the head. Police

handcuffed the pair before

realising the 40-year-old wasn't

breathing. Police were attempting

to arrest a man and during that

process it was determined that he

was not responsive. He was treated

at the scene by police until

ambulance arrived. He died in

hospital. The police union says it is

is another alcohol-fuelled tragedy

that might have been avoided if

pubs and clubs were closed at 3

o'clock. Victorian's have dug deep

for sick children setting a new

record for the annual Good Friday

appeal. More than $14 billion was -

- $14 million buzz raised on

channel seven. The Royal Children's

Hospital helps Victoria's Hospital helps Victoria's sickest

children and every parent that has

had a child treated there knows how

important their work is. I would

say everyone give as much as you

can they have given us everything we needed we needed and just give back. Victorians did just that, smashing last year's donation record. Thousands of volunteers swarmed Melbourne's streets collecting money to go towards research and much-needed medical equipment. We are very grateful for all doctors

and nurses andest specially for the

children's hospitals. Telephone

donations were taken by volunteers

and personalities at Etihad stadium

and local businesses donated their

time to the cause. We might be here

for the next 24 hours because they

need a good work over. There was an

underwater world record attempt to

encourage people to dig deep. He is

raising the money for the sick children by

children by playing noughts and

crosses. On the property front a

brand new home was auctioned with

no reserve price. By midnight $14.4

million had been handed over for

six kids and their parents, it

means the world. There is always a

kind nurse toland a supportive

shoulder if need be. Well done to

everyone across Victoria. In sport the

the Melbourne Storm has made it

four wins from four beating the

dragons at Etihad stadium yesterday.

In a tough first half the boot of

cam Smith gave the Storm a lead.

The storm finally grabbed the first

try of the match after 40 minutes.

They added another

They added another shortly after

before the Dragons pulled one back.

Billy Slater brilliance wrapped up

the points for the defending

premiers maintaining their perfect

start to the season. At the Sydney

Football Stadium last night Todd

Carney starred for the Roosters as

they won their first Good Friday

clash with the Broncos since 2003.

The Roosters ran in three first

half tries to run out to an 18- point lead

point lead at the break.

Minichiello goes in to score. The

Broncos scored the first try of the

second half to briefly threaten a

comeback but Carney crossed for his

second of the night to help the

Roosters to a 25-6 victory. The

Western Force has snapped a six

game losing streak and record its

first win of the season against first win of the season against the

Stormers in Perth last night. Two

penalty goals early in the second

saw the lead change hands. That was

the pattern of the second half as

both teams traded penalties. Sends

it through. They are in front.

After the Stormers again went ahead,

the Force's David Hill landed the

killer blow after the siren to

snatch a thrilling 1 point win for

the home side. Now let's the home side. Now let's get the

weather. James a few technical

problems earlier but in Wagga he is

for the Easter rally. There were no

technical problems, we have been

doing circle work in the car park

with this magnificent machine. This

is a 1911 Cadillac. Look at this

for a motor vehicle. It is just

spectacular. Here in Wagga Wagga over the weekend we have

over the weekend we have the - they

are called the bush council, it is

the country heritage clubs of New

South Wales get together at Easter

for a huge rally and it will be

fantastic. This car is magnificent.

It was bought in 28 boxes and this

man put it together himself. It is

quept in magnificent condition. For

the first time today, half an hour

late, let's look at the weather.

A ridge along the far east of the

country should bring isolated

showers to New South Wales and

Queensland. In central Australia,

well above average temperatures.

Heavy rain expected to continue across northern Queensland.

What about a bit of a toot toot

(horn blows) The cars are

magnificent. These beautifully

maintains pieces of machinery. The

stories are fantastic. They go on beautiful big, long

beautiful big, long rides. What

makes this weekend fantastic are

the people. I walked into this

amazing group of people - where's

Liz. She will hate being on camera.

C'mon here Liz. Hi shirl and

Margaret. Shirley in Campbell on

the. You will go on a big ride. the. You will go on a big ride. And

Mandy and Ken. Together you have a

big dance. A dinner dance tonight.

How much is about the car? Heaps

about the cars. We travel today and

tomorrow and all year we travel all

around the state everywhere and

have a wow of a time. Every year

they get together tore Easter and

have a big bush council rally. I

push I had known you were going wag

gafplt I just left gafplt I just left Wagga last night.

We probably bassed each other at

the airport. It is a shame we

didn't see each other. You don't

call me enough. You need to go out

to mum and dad's to get lunch

before you leave today. I will let

you know you are coming. You know

before you were saying that Sam was

very popular down at the fish

markets. Ited into to be said

before we lose this story

altogether. When I was in prison

they used to be asked about you

alot as wellment Good. What makes

men tick. Simon apparently. The

results of a landmark study into

the male brain. After the brake,

incredible imitations music fans

pay tributes to their favourite artists on YouTube.

Australia, I present this Chrysler 300C HEMI V8

Thanks for joining us this morning.

It is fast becoming an internet

phenomenon, creative music fans are

posting imitations of their

favourite pop stars' music videos.

In some cases the fake is more

entertaining than the real thing.

Check it out. What do you say Are

you going to tell me the concept

for this telephone video or what.

# First of all this song is not as

good as bed romance. It is not even

Well, they say men are from Mars -

here we go - and women are from

Venus, the two sexs are constantly

at odds trying desperately to

understand each other. New r in the

US claims to have the answers. It

says the bulk of male behaviour is

hard wireed in the brain. Cool. The book

book is 'The Male Brain', the

author the neuropsychiatrist Dr

Louann Brizendine. She says the men

are biologically inclined to look

for sex. Brizendine claims the area

for sexual pursued is two-and-a-

half times larger in men than women.

Could this explain serious

infidelity like in Jesse James or

Tiger Woods. There is even a

scientific explanation as to why men fall

men fall asleep after sex. It is

called post coital narcolepsy.

According to the study men process

emotions differently to women which

explains why generally men prefer

not to wall low in their feelings.

Did you say post coital narcolepsy

on the TV. Now we know. Our

resident psychologist Jo Lamble

joins us now. Is any of joins us now. Is any of that true?

As she seas in her book, the male

and female brain as more in common

than differences. We are all humans

but there are differences and it is important to understand the

differences because that will make

us more tolerant of each other and

not takes personally. I am not

talking about being tolerant of

serial affairs. What are the major

differences? The major difference

is that the male brain is

is that the male brain is wireed to

look for mates and to protect their

territory and problem solve. The

female brain is wired to connect to

people emotionally and to talk. Men

have this biological urge to cheat,

are men really that sex-crazed. I

am sure that would have sounded

like a better question if you asked

it. Are they really? I

it. Are they really? I think what

the study says is that the area of

the brain responsible for sexual

pursuit is two-and-a-half times

larger in the male brain than the

female brain so therefore they are

on the lookout. They notice

attractive women. She tells this

wonderful story that men look at

attractive women like we might look

at butterflies. They are just drawn

to the attractive woman and it

flits out of their brain again and think

think think about what is for

dinner and on the other channel and

woman are still fumeing that he

dared to look. There is another

beautiful butterfly. They are like

monkeys, they look and loose

interest. I've Rost interest - have

forgot enwhat we are talking about.

Why are men less emotional than

women. I don't think it found they are less emotional but are less emotional but they sur

press their motions because they

can't afford to get emotional if

they are going to protect. They are

in protection mode and suppress

that emotion. Men tend to problem

solve, not because they don't care

or understand, they want to reduce

their partner's hurt really quickly.

The trouble is women want to

connect emotionally and talk

through the problem so he is busy

saying, "Let's get off this pain

and get on toe looking at butterflies" and

butterflies" and she is wanting to

talk more about her day. I have

post interview narcolepsy. I will

have a sleep. You finish it up will

you? It is a bit creepy, isn't it.

Look at all the butterflies. On the

roof in here I doubt it. Thanks for

coming in. We'll see you soon.

back in half an hour. From New York

to the Vatican city, Easter

celebrations are under way right

around the world. To find out what

is happening by in in in each

corner of the globe we are joined

by Keith Suter, cesss is cess and

Mark Joyella. Keith, let's start

with you. Such with you. Such a multicultural

country is Australia, what did we

get up to generally on Good Friday?

Good Friday commemorates the death

of Jesus so it a day that is marked

with avoidance of eating meat, so a

lot of eating of fish. There was

also a lot of church services,

probably better attended than any

since the Christmas events and also

various religious processions as well.

well. Run us through the

significance of today, of Easter

Saturday? Saturday is the low day

in the sal Len car so if you think

back last sun we have Palm Sunday,

Jesus is -- Jesus + entry into

verse. We have a number of events

during this week including ones

that are showing the leader as

servant. We had the crucifixion

yesterday and today it is assumed

that Jesus is dead in the that Jesus is dead in the tomb,

people are disupon dent. It would

normally be a day spent with Bible

study and reflection and we are

looking forward to tomorrow, the

day of the resurrection. What would

you say that Easter means for

Australians as a whole now in 2010.

Australia has a reputation as being

a country without much interest in

religion. Church attendance tends

to be fairly low compared with the to be fairly low compared with the

United States but more people go to

church on a Sunday than go to some

sporting events on Saturday. What

is interesting is the incredible

interest in Jesus as a person. In

you go to book shops there are both

fiction and non fiction boobs on

Jesus so there is a tremendous

surge to know more about Jesus.

Even if people aren't going to the

churches they are certainly

interested in Jesus. In London Mirella you are Mirella you are there. It is meant

to be spring in the UK but it is

chilly over there. Is that putting

a Pamener on things? I have never

seen so many people wear coats and

skarves and so on. There is a lot

of snow in the north of England,

Scotland and Northern Ireland. It

is pretty harsh conditions here and

it is putting a dampener on the

celebrations. Not in Northern

Ireland, we understand it is the

first Good Friday pubs have been

open in Northern Ireland. That

would warm things up a little. You

know the Irish, they like a drink.

Tell us about Maundy? Maundy

Thursday is a very important day in

the Queen's calendar because it is

the day she is able to really meet

the public and she always holds a

special ceremony in a cathedral

where she hands over a pouch full

of money. It is not much - it is

nothing to get particularly excited

about - it is ?5.50 which does not

go and awful long way. Nonetheless

she does give this guestture of

again eurosty. It is very welcome

and nice. As always the Vatican is

San incredibly popular place at

Easter. There are pilgrims coming

in from all over the globe. Run us

through what is through what is happening there?

The celebrations starred on

Thursday when the Pope actual --

started on Thursday when the hope

actually watch washes the feet of

the priests there, tonight,

happening right this second, is the

Way of the Cross and so it is the

12 steps - the 12 stations of the

cross and the Pope and a number of

cardinals reflect and meditate on

the final hours of

the final hours of Jesus' life. It

is beautiful and moving and almost

magical, that warm Roman night in

the Colosseum. Really beautiful.

Thank you for that. Let's go to

Mark in New York. Tell us how the

President traditionally celebrates

his Easter? Of course there is an

Easter egg roll event on the south

lawn of the White House. That will

happen on Monday though here in happen on Monday though here in the

United States Easter Monday is not

exactly a federal holiday. We don't

get a day off for Monday or for

Friday for that matter - Good

Friday. Step wrapping up here in

New York right now but it is a big

event at the White House where some

specially chosen kids who enter a

raffle get a chance to get right up

and close to the President of the

United States and it is a traditional event that allows traditional event that allows them

to have a little fun, learn a

lesson and of course get their

picture on TV and that is a memory

that those families will have for

the rest of their lives. It always

looks like a great day. Thank you

so much for the wrap up.
