I'm sure they would have been doing a bit of hard work this week to rectify what went wrong. A sellout crowd of over 40,000 is expected at Suncorp for tonight's match. The Wallabies will be looking to make it three wins in a row when they take on England at Twickenham tomorrow morning. Much of the focus in training has been on improving the scrum with Australia copping a battering last week against Wales. Experienced Hooker Stephen Moore comes back into the side and says he can't wait to lock horns with the English. I really enjoy playing here and there's no greater test for us as a forward pack than this Saturday. The Wallabies are set to stick to their free-flowing game despite wet conditions predicted. Gold Coast United has moved to within five points of A-League leaders Brisbane after a 3-1 win over Sydney FC at Skilled Park last night. 2-nil up at half-time United put the result beyond doubt after the break as Joel Porter smashed home his second goal.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton has upset the major F1 title contenders by setting the fastest practice time ahead of Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel for the season-ending Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi. Championship leader Fernando Alonso was third fastest - one-thousandth of a second ahead of Aussie Mark Webber. who trails Alonso by eight points in the standings.

You can see qualifying and today's race right here on Seven. Australia's Adam Scott has taken a 2-stroke lead over Englishman Ian Poulter at the halfway mark of the Singapore Open

after a second round 65 moved him to 12-under for the tournament. Meanwhile, Tiger Woods will be aiming to claw back some of the nine-stroke advantage that Australian Masters leader Adam Bland holds over him when the third round gets under way this morning. England are set to extend their lead over South Australia in today's tour match in Adelaide. But Ricky Ponting won't get more pre-Ashes batting practice. He played on,

out for just five against Queensland yesterday.

Finally, it feels like spring and

summer have come to Sydney.

have crossed the line. JT, we have

of the APEC Summit? What is the value What will be achieved?

It's an Australian idea. It arose 20

years ago because in Europe, there

are all these regional organisations

that take care of economic and

social co-operation and so Bob

Hawke's suggestion over 20 years ago

was we needed to have all sorts of

regional organisations. Asia and the

Pacific region is where the

will be in the 21st century. So the Pacific region is where the action

feeling was we try to draw together

the countries that go around that

Pacific rim. So that was launched

over 20 years ago and it's turned

out to be a useful way to enable the

leaders in this correspond are of

the world to get together. It will

be a useful session. formal face-to-face meeting Julia Gillard will hold her first today. with US President Barack Obama

I imagine she is quite excited and

nervous about that: for the PM? How important will this meeting be

Shaoi is on a fast learning curve

She has almost alluded to the fact

she doesn't enjoy it. She said the

other day the banks were ripping off

Australians. Would they know what Australians. Would they know what "

"Ripping off"

It was a stupid thing to say. In

Keith, lovely to talk to you. this morning Authorities are fearing the worst Zahra Baker. for missing Australian girl in bushland in North Carolina Human remains were found near where she had been living with her father and step mum. It comes as Zahra's biological mother, Emily Dietrich, told of her heartache to Seven News.

I feel sick. (Cries) I feel sick. (Cries). about a month ago. The 10-year-old was reported missing has been covering the story. Robert Ovadia Seven News reporter

in North Carolina. He joins us live from Hickory Good morning. shortly. Police will hold a media conference What's expected to be said?

Depends on what version you hears.

There has been a lot of speculation.

Emily Dietrich has not been told

specifically what will be said at

this press conference in 45 minutes

time. She was not specifically told

yesterday that the discovery made

the day before north of Zahra's home

are human remains. The police are

protective of her. They had an angry

exchange with media outlets. They

have reported it was human remains.

They reported what was found was a

head. We were with Emily this

morning as she is watching this

coverage on television. It's

upsetting for her. We understand

Emily will be told in the minutes

before this press conference happens

exactly the content. But local media

reports suggest very emphatically

what will be released is that not

only human remains have been found,

but they are those of Zahra.

Gut-wrenching scenes with Emily

Dietrich. How is she coping when the

cameras are off?

She has her ups and downs. An hour

or so ago we were with her and she

was reading blog comment

was reading blog comments at the

support they are offering. She can

also laugh but she has her very,

very low moments. When she

approached that shrine, that

makeshift shrine to Zahra yesterday

morning in the dawn light, saw the

house where she lived, all sorts of

emotions came out. It took her a

good two minutes to be able to leave

her car and cross the street just to

be able to make it there. We saw

some of the emotions on display.

The remains found in the bushland,

speculation? lots of speculation. Is it all

It is speculation but it has to be

said, it's not - the reports coming

out from the local news

here in Hickory and out of out from the local news stations

Charlotte, they are very emphatic.

They are not saying it's

that it might be human remains. They They are not saying it's thought

are saying that sources have

confirmed to them 100% that what was

found are human remains. Having said

that, Emily Dietrich hasn't been

told that. Hopefully in the next few

minutes she will be likely told what

speculation. this is about. You are right, it is

Bring us up to speed what is

happening with Zahra's father and

stepmother. Are they suspects?

They are very much suspects. The

laws in Australia are so much

stronger than here. Yes, there is no

court action. You look on talk back

shows and blog sites and everywhere,

news articles, everybody is pointing

a finger at Adam Baker from Wagga

Wagga and her stepmother. The

stepmother wrote a fake ran some

note. Adam Baker was questioned late

yesterday, only for half an hour, he

had his attorney prefmt there are

death threats for both of them. Adam

baker is hiding and the stepmother

is in jail.

There is a vigil on Tuesday.

That has been organised by a local

journalist. She has been trying to

get in touch with Emily Dietrich to

Troy to get her to come. Emily

couldn't even look to the house

until yesterday. We don't know how

many people will turn up but very

much in the same Cas Kesha Abrahams

that went missing in Sydney west,

there has been a massive outpouring

of grief. The same sort of tlaoun,

teddy bears, notes written by

children saying they are praying for

her, the same sort of emotions. You

would expect at that Tuesday vigil,

there will be quite a few people

turning up.

story. Another sad chapter in this tragic

at the Australian Masters Tiger Woods isn't ruling out victory third round even though he starts today's nine shots off the pace.

heads the leaderboard Australian Adam Bland Tiger, stage a comeback but can the defending champion, and take home the title? is here. Golf commentator Grant Dodd Good morning, Grant.

Tiger seems to be struggling this

year. He can comeback?

He can make a comeback. He is one of

two greatest players who can play

grove in the history of the game.

This time last year, we were going

through the massive reveal about his

after-hours indiscretions. He has

had a divorce, split up from his

wife, no access to his children.

There is a lost dpis tractions going

on in his life. He will make a

comeback at some point in time. He

has some issues with his golf game.

This time last year he was mobbed by

fans. The numbers are down this

year. He is not quite the draw

year. He is not quite the draw card as he used to be.

He is still the biggest name in the

game. There is no question what has

happened over the last year has hurt

his reputation and his appeal to

certain sections of his fan base as

well. Look, you know, the thing

about golf at the moment, if you

want to have an opportunity to have

a serious successful tournament,

Tiger is the man you need to have

coming through the gate.

We talked to JT and the weather

looks terrible in Melbourne. How

will that affect today? Will it have

an effect on Tiger's game?

Yesterday it blew a hurricane,

certainly had an effect on Tiger. He

is nine shots back. It's a long way

to come. Not a particularly strong

field and a lot of players in front

of him at the moment that will be

looking over their shoulder and thinking "

thinking "Tiger is chasing me" and

that has always had an effect on

Tiger's performance in the past.

Like when I play golf. Thanks coming in.

I've seen you play golf in a cyclone.

I'm a fair weather golfer. Next - news, sport and weather together. You're watching Weekend Sunrise, on the Seven Network.

That's more my speed.

She is pretty cool. I don't know. But right now, let's get a news hit. Here's Sarah.

Police are expected to shortly

confirm that human remains found in

Carolina are that of missing

Australian girl Zahra Baker. Police have been searching for Zahra for more than a month after she was reported missing by her father and stepmother.

Zahra's birth mother has

with a DNA sample.

A police news conference has will be

in half an hour's time and we will

bring it to you live. Qantas has suffered another mid-air drama,

this time over Perth. A flight to Melbourne was forced to turn back just after take-off late yesterday because of engine trouble. More than 200 passengers were onboard the Boeing 767. The pilot just said there was vibration in the left engine and better to turn around and come back to Perth. Everybody was really calm and did exactly as they were told and lovely landing and we're happy to be back on the ground. The passengers finally finished their journey to Melbourne late last night, as Qantas executives in Sydney celebrated the company's 90th anniversary. The problem engine is made by General Electric and engineers are working out what went wrong. The Prime Minister Julia Gillard has arrived in Japan for a meeting with Asia-Pacific nations. Ms Gillard touched down in Yokohama last night. She'll hold her first formal meeting with US President Barack Obama today, ahead of the APEC summit. Ms Gillard was under fire at the G20 meeting in South Korea for not getting tougher on Australian banks for their interest rate hikes above the Reserve Bank's official increase. An investigation is under way into the shooting death of a man in Sydney's inner west last night. Emergency services were called to a street in Newtown around 9:00 last night, following reports of a man lying in the street. He had a gunshot wound to the head. Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers. Police divers have found the bodies of two men who disappeared while swimming at a waterhole in Sydney's west. The men, in their 20s, had been with a group of family and friends when they decided to swim across Bents Basin at Greendale. They disappeared halfway across. It's believed they were swimming against a strong current. Victoria's high country can expect a drenching this weekend as severe storms move across the state. Parts of Melbourne received a battering last night

with heavy rain and strong winds leaving a trail of destruction in the city's south.

The State Emergency Service received up to 300 calls for help, mostly in response to uprooted trees. I'd say from everything that we've seen tonight, we've had a micro-burst which is what a lot of people call a mini tornado. Up to 150mm of rain is expected to fall in the state's north-east over the weekend. There's been a dramatic rescue of 20 Chinese sailors who went missing when their cargo ship sank near Japan. At least three men have been pulled from the water alive for treatment. and have been taken to hospital to the ship It's not yet known what happened crew members told the Coast Guard but it's been reported the it suddenly took on water. to come out firing Australia is expecting New Zealand at Suncorp Stadium. in tonight's Four Nations final

that offer you great things. This week former AFL star Ben Cousins became the latest star to be falsely killed off.

And he's not alone. let's take a look. If you trust the internet, these guys should be all dead. It takes just one person to start a rumour and the web to spread it around the world. This week, social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter went crazy, lighting up with news former AFL star Ben Cousins was dead. A quick call to his dad from a Melbourne radio station proved it was wrong. Ben was in fact alive and well and holidaying in Perth. He isn't the only star to be killed off prematurely. Actor Zach Braff was forced to deny he was dead last year.

Following online reports he'd committed suicide.

pills. I'm alive, here, working on 'Scrubs'. Justin Bieber has been reported dead four or five times. When the 16-year-old failed to post on Twitter for 14 hours, his fans began to panic. Rumours spread the pop star had died, with rumours of everything from suicide to death from convulsions. Bieber quickly put it to rest. In 2006, a dodgy press release claimed funny man actor Will Ferrell had died in a paragliding accident. The news spread like wildfire across the web. Car accidents are a popular way of killing off celebs. Back in 1969, long before the internet, reports surfaced about Beatle Paul McCartney dying in a crash. It was rumoured he'd been replaced by a lookalike.

In 2001, internet forums were abuzz with news Brittney Spears had died in a crash with ex boyfriend Justin Timberlake at the wheel. A radio station broadcast the news, then was forced to apologise. In 2004 fans were prematurely mourning the death of Michael Jackson, sparked by an email he had overdosed on sleeping pills five years before his actual death. On the same day the world was coming to terms with the real life death of the King of Pop, word spread that veteran actor Jeff Goldblum was dead.

Do we have any more on this breaks

news of Jeff Goldblum falling to his death.

I have a report that New Zealand

police are saying Jeff Goldblum fell

from a cliff to his death while filming in New Zealand. It didn't take long for the rest of the world to realise the news wasn't true.

The New Zealand police confirmed it.

Wow. You know, I guess I really am dead. The list of hoax deaths goes on, from Bill Cosby to Tom Cruise and rapper Eminem. They've had the condolences coming in and, yep, they've even got me.

We are going back to Hickory

We are going back to Hickory in North Carolina in the States. Robert

Ovadia is there. A world exclusive.

Rob, what can you tell us?

I can tell you the news that is

about to be broken to the us media

shortly that we can bring you now,

there is a DNA match on the bone

found a couple of weeks ago north of

Zahra's home. That DNA has been

matched to various items that were

recovered in Zahra's house here in

Hickory. Also beyond that, police

have confirmed the growing

speculation that the remains that

they found a couple of days ago,

again north of Hickory, seem to be

those of a little girl. So for all

intents and purposes it looks we are

getting confirmation now, all but

positively, that police are saying

that Zahra Baker is dead.

For official confirmation we are

going live to the press conference.

Please understand I cannot get into

many specifics about the

investigation but the DNA evidence

from the bone found on Kristy Road

match the sample, a DNA sample from

the house. The sample from the home

was taken from personal items

believed to be Zahra. A known DNA

profile from Zahra will be created

from cheek swabs from her biological

mother and father. She will be

mother and father. She will be sent to the North Carolina lab to create

that profile. Remains found at

Dudley Scholes Road have been

Dudley Scholes Road have been sent to the North Carolina's medical

examiner's office and to the state

investigation lab for positive

identification. According to medical

examiner staff on site, when the

remains were uncovered, they are

consistent with a child. Until that

test is complete, we cannot

officially confirm they are Zahra's.

The timetable for those results are

not available at this time. This is

still a developing case and we are

gathering all facts we feel exist.

We understand the concern and

interest in this case by the public

but we must be cautious in releasing

further information so we are not

jeopardizing future court

proceedings. The release of any

information from this point on will be very limited.

Investigators, agents and officers

and staff who have work odd this

case are devastated that we are not

able to find Zahra alive and bring

her home safely. We appreciate the

support we received from the public

today our community mourns. Our

state mourns. Our nation mourns. And

the world mourns as we go forward. Thank you. Con

Confirming the remains are that of

10-year-old Zahra Baker. Robbo Vlad

ya is in Hickory. You are travelling

with Emily Dietrich. Was she

listening to that press conference

or had police informed her of this

news before the press conference?

Sam, police have been keeping a lot

of information close to their chest

for obvious reasons. This is a high

pressure investigation and they need

to control that investigation. It

was only about 15 minutes or so

before that press conference, before

we just broke that news, that Emily

Dietrich was informed that it is in

fact her daughter that has been

found a couple of days ago. I

haven't had the chance to speak with

Emily just yet. She has had an

emotional journey, not just from the

first time we spoke to her in her

home town of Wagga Wagga but

when she visited the shrine home town of Wagga Wagga but also

yesterday, she was a torn woman. It

took her a couple of minutes to

cross the street to get to that

shrine, she almost threw up. She was

bracing for this news. There has

been a lot of speculation, that is

what this press conference would

confirm. I will be catching up with

Emily shortly.

Rob, the Police Chief suggested the

timetable is not available for how

this investigation will unfold. Any

indication? Are we talking days,

weeks or months now?

I do have a fair indication, guys,

but I'm not liberty to say, only out

of protection of the investigation.

I don't know an arrest is imminent.

It's not a case of finding a body

and the police have the entire case and they

and they can effect an arrest. There are still people to

are still people to be spoken to and

briefs to be had. A lot of

scientific work as well. In terms of

timeframes, it's difficult to

confirm exactly. I don't suspect an

arrest is imminent, just around the

corner, unless there is a specific breakthrough.

Rob, as briefly as you can, describe

this scene. How far were these

remains found from the house Zahra

was living in with her father and stepmother?

It's about 35 kilometres odd north

of where Zahra lived here in

Hickory. The significance about

where those remains were found

that it is very close to where where those remains were found is

Zahra's step mum, Elise a Baker,

42-year-old was living three years

ago, before she met Zahra or Adam

Baker. That specifically, that

specific site is very much of

interest to police with where Alice

a Baker used to live. She has been

charged with hindering the

investigation, in having written a

ransom note in her own writing for $ ransom note in her own writing for

$1 million asking for safe return of

Zahra. She has been charged with

hindering the investigation. There

are a lot of people around Hickory

who want murder charges as soon as

they possibly can. This is not a 60

minute CSI episode. Police have to

put something before a court that a

jury can con viblgt upon.

Thank you for keeping us up to date

with that story. Let's get the rest

of today's news. Qantas has hit more engine trouble after yet another mid-air drama, this time over Perth. A flight was forced to turn back late yesterday after the pilot noticed a strange vibration, just minutes into the flight.

QF768 grounded in Perth after yet

another mid air emergency. The

Boeing 767 had just taken off for

Melbourne when the Port side engine

started vibrating. The jet, with 234

passengers and crew, was forced to turn back.

Prefer to turn around and go on with

a faulty engine.

You can tell they pulled back on the

throttle on the plane. The engine

certainly quiet evened off. Snoot

pilot came on and told us what was

going to happen.

The plane landed without incident

and passengers were put on to other

flights. Engineers are now

flights. Engineers are now trying to work out what went one with the

engine made by General Electric,

after such a turbulent week, it was

ironic the airline was last night

celebrating its 90th anniversary,

with supermodels and heavyweights in company: Expectations are high that Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi will be freed from house arrest today. It's believed the 65-year-old is currently negotiating

the conditions of her release. Hundreds of supporters are gathering at the Rangoon headquarters of her political party. Suu Kyi has been detained for most of the past 21 years and is still seen as a significant threat to the military junta's rule. The Victorian election is headed for a hung parliament, according to the latest opinion poll. On a two-party preferred basis, Newspoll shows Labor's vote has dropped by 1%, making it a neck-and-neck race with the Coalition. Support for the Greens has also taken a hit,

with their primary vote dropping by almost a quarter. John Brumby is still believed to be the better premier over the Opposition leader Ted Baillieu. Victorians go to the polls on the 27th of November.

An investigation is under way over

the shooting death of a man in

Sydney's west last night. Emergency

services were called to a street in

Newtown at 9 o'clock last night

following reports of a man lying in

the street with gunshot wounds to

the head. Police are trying to

identify the man and work out the

circumstances leading up to his

death. Time for sport now.

Australia will be out to after

evening their World Cup defeat

against New Zealand in tonight's

four nation final in Brisbane. The

Kangaroos have dropped sin sieve a

from the match as shifg tonne steps

up. Despite a resound ling success,

the Aussies are expecting a much

improved showing from New Zealand.

I'm sure they would have been doing

a fair bit of hard work this week to

rectify what went wrong.

A crowd of 40,000 are expected to

pack out Suncorp Stadium for tonight's big one.

The Wallabies will be looking for

three wins in a row when they take

on England at Twickenham tomorrow

morning. Much of the focus has been

on improving the scrum with

Australia copping a battering last

week at the hands of the Welsh.

Stephen Moore is back to bolster the

forwards and says he can't wait to

lock horns with the old enemy.

I really enjoy playing here and

there is no greater test for us as a forward pack than this Saturday.

The Wallabies are said to stick to

their successful free-flowing game

despite some rain being about.

Gold Coast has moved into five

points of Brisbane over a win at

the result was under doubt.

Julia Gillard will hold her first

meeting with US President Obama at

the APEC summit Julia Gillard will hold her first face-to-face meeting with US President Barack Obama today.

How important is this meeting for the PM? today.

It's very important, Sam. We were talking last week about the importance of her meeting

importance of her meeting with Hillary Clinton when she was

visiting request r for the AUSMIN

talks. This is amplified by the fact

it is the US President. Probably

important symbolically more than

anything. It's not as if two leaders

meeting on the sidelines in Japan

can solve the world's problems. But

it's more about them establishing a

friendship, the way Kevin Rudd did

with Barack Obama and John Howard

did with George Bush. What can we expect from the 2010 APEC meeting?

APEC was set up back in the late

'80s to encourage the 21 countries

to open up trade barriers and

to open up trade barriers and boost what is going between all of them.

So that's the focus. Julia

So that's the focus. Julia Gillard will be continuing to push the

arguments that we saw her pushing at

the G20 summit which has wrapped up

in Korea. She is telling everyone not to

not to be shy about opening up trade

barriers despite the fact we have

had problems. She said it will be

better if we continue to boost trade. Ms Gillard has said foreign policy is not her passion. Is she holding her own with the world leaders?

It's hard to tell, Sam. I think on

the surface it seems that she is.

But really the only people who would

know that in detail are the other

leaders she is dealing with. They

are not going to talk about the

relationships. It is a crash course

for her. She hasn't been used to

doing this. She is an expert on lots

of things domestically but not

foreign affairs. She seems to be

doing OK. It was interesting to see

her the other day not deliver the

speech that she was planning to

deliver when she was going to have

an attack on the big banks. She

pulled back from that and realised

that wasn't the forum for it. It

looks as if she is learning along

the way.

Jodie, thanks for the update.

Coming up - damage control for the

flying kangaroo. Another Qantas

plane has engine trouble. What is

going on?

Plus, can he make it. Ben Cousins

struggle with drug addiction. That's

next. There's more bad news for Qantas with another mid-air drama.

A flight bound for Melbourne was forced to turn back to Perth late yesterday after the pilot noticed a strange vibration. It comes as the airline's fleet of A380s is still grounded over saftey concerns. So do passengers still trust Qantas or has its reputation been ruined? It's over to our Weekend All Stars

Paul Murray from Sky News and social commentator Prue MacSween. Good morning to you both. Paul, can Qantas recover from this?

And or your sound effects?

Ding. Would you like chicken or the

veal? Obviously it will. However,

I'm planning to fly with them

I'm planning to fly with them later in the year so I will watch myself

here. However, I will say this.

Despite the fact I paid full

freight, although you if you would

like to change that, I can support

you on tomorrow's show, is that the

system worked. It's not like the

planes have been falling out of the

sky. It's the second they find a

problem, they turn around and deal

with it. I'm completely confident

people go to work not planning how

to cut corners so people die. I'm

expecting they go, work hard and

things are OK. I think there is, to

a degree, ex actionally moments like

this, it's like when there is lots

of problems with trains or buses and

it becomes the story. You report

every single thing that goes wrong.

Reality is, most of us have sat on a

plane and it's been delayed by an

hour or have had to turn around. It

looks terrible when it's this close

together. Things come in threes, which together. Things come in threes,

which mean my flights awesome.

We, the media, give Qantas a bad time.

It's been the airline that has never

crashed. It still hasn't but the

thing is there is a perception now

that really, is the maintenance

being down played a bit. Are they

cutting costs, which is always a

question mark. I hope they are not,

and I'm sure they wouldn't, but no

doubt this has done incredible

damage to brand. Maybe they are not

as safe as we were proudly boasting

of. I think if they are changing

their maintenance rules, if they are

exporting that maintenance, they

need to consider perhaps bringing it back.

As nervous as all the passengers

are, imagine the flight crew. They

have to fly every day.

They don't seem to get nervous,


Three engines, we can do it. Moving on, Westpac and the National Australia Bank have joined their counterparts in raising interest rates on home loans.

All the big four banks are now slugging borrowers with rate rises above the Reserve Bank. Prue, are they robbing customers or is it a necessary move?

They are robbing customers but they

are also rewarding shareholders. I

notice the Commonwealth Bank went up

yesterday on the stock market. We

have to vote with our feet. At the

end of the day, move out if you are

not happy with them, change baings.

Apart from Westpac, I believe they

are not charging exit fees. There is

nothing stopping you. Move to a

second tier bank.

Westpac has refused to scrap this

exit fee thing.

I think the exit fee thing is a

fantastic idea for the one bank who

thought it was a good idea, giving

something to the customers which is

a good PR battle. I stand by what we

talk bad last week. Reality is

whether we like it or not, we are

Victoriansed in the banks making

money. If you are Agro about it, go.

Where did this all start going

wrong? It was about four years where

most banks did away with the idea

you had to stand there and write out

the deposit slips. Remember as a kid

I put in 15 trillion dollars to the moon.

Gee that development on the moon is looking good.

I always do the paper deposit.

You are in the dark ages.

I didn't know it was updated. In other news, former AFL star Ben Cousins has revealed that he still thinks about drugs every day.

Speaking in an interview with the Herald Sun, the former drug addict admitted he's even vulnerable to a relapse. Prue, will Ben ever recover?

Let's hope so. We are all rooting

for him, so to speak. We are all on

tenterhooks as well. When you have

this kind of addictive personality,

it's a psychological thing. The guy

needs ongoing help because he could

fall off the edge and we hope that

he doesn't.

Paul, what do you think it's best for him to
