Time for the weather now, JT Time for the weather now, JT seems to be back.

Welcome back, buddy

Yeah, welcome back to you, Sam. I

feel a bit like big Kev as I'm

excited to be back. You feel revived

after 3 weeks away, don't you, Sam?

Yes, yes. I do. My holiday was so

busy, I was looking forward to

getting back to work to be a bit quieter.

These Fijians run you off their feet.

My week in Fiji was quiet but the

rest was busy. Lovely to be back,

don't you think.

I wanted to come back with a real

bang. I thought for 3 weeks about

what I could do for my first weather

back, a great idea would be the

world's best tour of Australia's

best green buildings.

That's a good idea. Excellent idea.

Yeah, I thought it was a Yeah, I thought it was a great idea.

I did a pole around the office and

got much the same reaction as you. 3 weeks.

I came up with a different idea.

What is this an impersonation of?

Are you ready? Iguana.

Are you ready?

Yeah, got you, got you.

Open your mouth though.

We were more confused by the spiky hair do you think. We were more confused by the spiky hair do you think.

I can't let go. Ahead on Weekend Sunrise - Assange exposed.

We'll take a look at the new tell-all book written about the controversial WikiLeaks founder. But next - Egypt's revolution. Celebrations on the streets of Cairo but what does President Mubarak's resignation really mean? We'll find out when Weekend Sunrise continues. How much lunch would you expect to get for $4.75? You could get a McDonald's Cheeseburger. But would you expect a Cheeseburger and medium fries? How about a Cheeseburger, fries and a medium Coke for just... Hang on! ..and a sundae...for just $4.75? Maccas has a new range of lunch deals. Even a Tick approved seared sweet chilli chicken wrap meal. McDonald's: (McDONALD'S THEME) VOICEOVER: This is the ultimate shampoo test. Without knowing the brand name, 83% wanted to use it again. Before, it used to, like, stick, but now! Look at how light it is now. It's a big difference. Just amazing. My hair feels so smooth and yet it feels so light. Ooh! It's new Pantene with lightweight Pro-V formula for lighter, smoother hair in 14 days. It's never felt like this before. Love, love, love it. It's great. Pantene. There are jubilant celebrations in Cairo following the resignation of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.

After two weeks of mass protests, Mubarak has finally stepped down, handing power to the army. A short time ago, US President Barack Obama made a statement about the development. ,

There are very few moments in our

lives where we have the privilege to

witness history taking place. This

is one of those moments. This is one

of those times. The people of Egypt

have spoken, their voices have been

heard and Egypt will never be the

same. By stepping down, President

Mubarak responded to the Egyptian

people's hunger for change. But this

is not the end of Egypt's

transition. It's a beginning. I am

sure there will be difficult days

ahead. And many questions remain

unanswered. But I am confident that

the people of Egypt can find the

answers. And do so Peasfully,

constructively, and in the spirit of

unity that has defined these last few weeks. We're joined now by our foreign affairs editor, Dr Keith Suter. Good morning. Incredible scenes we're seeing. How did this all unfold earlier this morning?

It really began I guess yesterday

when around this time, when the

Egyptian president said that he

would listen to the people, he will

go but not immediately. He said " go but not immediately. He said "I

will not stand for election in

September" originally people heard

him say I'm going then he said but

not until September. A sense of

outrage. When we finished on

Sunrise, people were just marching

off towards the Presidentalpal as.

Interestingly enough, the military

were opening the way for them, the Presidentalpalace is down there,

they were marching quite clearly,

military had changed sides. Between

the scenes, and in the last 24

hours, clearly the military have

said we are not going to support you

any more. They were unlappy with him

anyway. Clearly they have seeupded with the young Dem

with the young demonstrators who

have been very well behaved. Mubarak

was trying to provoke them into

violence, peaceful demonstrations

all the way through t has paid off

for them. He has now gone. He has

fled Cairo. Presumably will flee the

country. And the military have now

taken over. So it's a part rebellion

but part military coup as well.

There will be some sort of

transition towards I assume, some

sort of secular Islamic democracy,

probably on the Turkish pattern.

These are live pictures we are

seeing. One of the most re Mackable

things about what happened last

night, particularly at the end of all

night, particularly at the end of

all these protests was this was so

peaceful, this hand over.

peaceful, this hand over.? This peaceful, this hand over.?

This is I think a key factor. It has

been the people power and the use of

non violence which has been really

significant in this. So, only, a

decade go, the use of violence,

clearly his method has not achieved

much success. It hasn't achieved

much success. These people have

followed a non violent pattern,

Martin Luther King, Gandhi, et

cetera, the police were trying to

provoke them into violence, they

were extremely well disciplined.

He has fled Cairo. You would think

that he would get out of Egypt

pretty quickly. Do you know where he is exactly?

Well, the BBC are saying that he has

now gone to Sharm el Sheikh which is

the holiday resort. He may be

disappearing entirely from the

country. Given the mood of the

people, they may not be out for veng

veng, very different from the

disappears from the Shah in Iran. He

may just choose to live in exile.

What I found fascinating is the way

that so many of his former friends

have disowned him. We have just seen

the American president, the

Americans have been paying him $

Americans have been paying him $2

billion for 30 years, now, they have

got the new American president

saying we are glad he has gone. It's

the same with his old friends from

around the world. Quite suddenly he

is on his own, no doubt left with a

lot of money. Wealth in the family.

It's amazing how a 30-year-old

dynasty can collapse in a few days.

We are hearing that his bank

accounts have been frozen. We will

have to check that.

Thank you for coming in. We will

talk to you later. Controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is again making headlines.

This time he's the one being exposed. An explosive tell-all book has been written about WikiLeaks. Assange is described as 'power obsessed' and 'paranoid'. Our UK correspondent Martin Frizell joins us now for more. Good morning, Martin. WikiLeaks is now suing Daniel Domachowska Domscheit-Berg, the guy who wrote the book. Isn't it a little ironic that Julian Assange is trying to gag someone?

. This I suppose is the computer

geeks version of Katie Price and

Peter Andre falling out. This is a

chap that used to be his right hand

man, his best friend until about 6

months ago. Then they fell out big

time and this guy has gone off to

set up his own website. In the

meantime he has brought out a book

about Julian's personal and

professional failings. WikiLeaks,

Daniel calls chaotic,

Daniel calls chaotic Assange he

calls a power, he suggestes was

brought up by wolves and more. He

boths that Julian would both about

how many children he had fathered,

saying he would like to have a

little Julian in almost every

continent in the world, the cry tear

be why it's alleged for a woman, is

that simple she had to be young.

Now, Daniel actually says, there is

something in translation, the book

is in German. On that last point,

what he didn't actually say was that

Julian likes women who are under the

age of 22. He asked for a reprint,

what he meant to say Julian likes

women around the age of 22.

I suppose those little tide bits

really that are going to be most

damaging in light of the court

proceedings that may or may not

happen on the continent.

Yeah, exactly. Julian has exactly 12

days now to read and this is the

first book, this is the third book

in as many weeks. He has 3 books,

all critical of him to read in the

next 12 days. His court hearing

finished in the past few

finished in the past few hours, his

lawyer asked for another day from

the judge because the Swedish prime

minister has now come out and said

something fairly critical about

Julian, suggesting he was an

Julian, suggesting he was an enemy of the people. Geoffrey Robertson

says we need more time on this.

The judge says no chance. I have

heard enough. 12 days is what he

has. He will find out if he will be

extradited. It will go to the

appeal, and then the court of human rights.

He has a lot of high profile

supporters. He may be bigger than

Peter Andre and Jordan, you never know. Peter Andre and Jordan, you never know.. Photographers are known for snapping beautiful people. But here's a man who's obsessed with finding the world's most common face. 46-year-old Mike Mike photographed more than 100 people from different nationalities and ethnicities. The photos were laid over each other using a special computer program. Mike was then able to create an individual image for each area of the world. The photographer also managed to capture the common face of Australia. Our social researcher Mark McCrindle joins us now for more. Welcome, Mark. Now what exactly was the photographer trying to achieve here?

Well, it's a visual snapshot of

Australia. In a sense it's a similar

process on to what we use in

research, if you take a cross

section of the population, you bin

those results, you end up with a

pretty good representation.

What does the average - is this the average Australian

That's how it's worked out. We can

feel pretty good about ourselves.

The average person can. I think that

he has captured it fairly well,

certainly the cultural diversity,

what he hasn't captured is the

ageing of our population. That looks

to me to be some one in their early 20s.

But we are looking at darker hair,

are they blue eyes?

No, they are dark eyes.

So the whole blonde Aussie bronzed

is out the window

As soon as you've got more than 25%

of the a population not blonde, you

will get those darker features

coming in. One in four of us wasn't

born here, if you include those who

include parents born overseas, we

are talking about 44% of the people

One of these days I may be

considered exotic in this country.

What does this show, what can we do with this information?

I think it is useful, not too many

people are going to read tables of

data from the Bureau of statistics. Sometimes to

Sometimes to to have that picture

does tell a lot. The changes in the

migration patterns. You are starting

to get that advice you'll I represented.

I think you too are quite average

Quite representative.

That guy is far better looking than

either of us snoochlt we are below

average. That's how it is.

Join the club. Thank you,

Join the club. Thank you,.

If you read our emails a lot of

viewers already think you are

neurotic - I mean, exotic.

I have been back 26 minutes and you

are already into me. are already into me.. You're watching Weekend Sunrise on the Seven Network. WOMAN: We make our Mini Babybel cheese from pure milk. It goes into these vats over here and then...

She has to change her brand of

orange juice. It looks very cloudy. But right now, let's get a news hit

and the latest on the situation in Egypt. Here's Jess. Good morning. Egypt is celebrating history in the making this morning after President Hosni Mubarak stood down, finally bowing to mounting public pressure after 18 days of pro-democracy demonstrations. Reacting to the news, hundreds of thousands of people celebrated on the streets with wild scenes, chanting 'Egypt is Free'. (ALL CHANT) The country's Vice-President made the announcement on state TV, saying Mubarak will transfer power to a military council. The cabinet and both houses of parliament have been suspended.

President Mubarak Mumbai has decided

to step down from his post of

president of the republic and Hazem

poured the supreme council of the

armed forces to manage the

armed forces to manage the affairs of the country. We seek God's help and guidance. Hosni Mubarak and his family fled Cairo before the announcement and is believed to be staying at an exclusive Red Sea resort. The extradition hearing for Julian Assange in London has been told he won't get a free trial if he's returned to Sweden. On the final day of the hearing lawyers for the WikiLeaks founder told the court Sweden's Prime Minister had made Mr Assange public enemy number one after saying he took women's rights 'lightly'. His attempts to vilify and prejudge this matter before even Julian Assange has been charged is wholly exceptional, wholly inappropriate.

The judge will hand down his ruling at the end of the month. Perth bushfire crews are on alert again this morning for a possible repeat of Black Sunday. Conditions this morning are very similar to those which sparked fires that destroyed more than 70 homes in the Perth Hills last weekend. What we basically had last weekend was fresh gusty easterlies all weekend. We're looking at fresh and gusty easterlies all weekend this weekend as well. Residents around Kelmscott and Roleystone spent yesterday preparing their homes. A Melbourne couple is lucky to be alive

after being forced to jump out of their bedroom window when a fire broke out in their living room overnight. The Bulleen home was fitted with a smoke detector but it wasn't working. The male occupant heard some noise, went out into the lounge room and saw the house was on fire. They evacuated out of the front bedroom window but had they would have been notified of the fire a lot earlier. The house was completely gutted by the blaze. New Zealand is again about to transform into Middle Earth with filming finally set to begin on the 'The Hobbit'.

keeping an eye of what is on the ground.

What you remember and love about

travel is that experience of being

totally out of your depth. You know,

where you might find yourself being

detained by Laos border guards for

reasons entirely unknown to you. You

captain avoid

captain avoid trouble all together,

can you.

We are talking about Andrew's family holidays.

Just as an example.

I like your family holidays. They

sound like a lot of fun. People who

want those real life sheernses when

they travel and they want that local

interaction. I think it's important

to travel with a group, like a

travel company that knows the

know what is happening on the destination inside and out and will

ground. So if you do encounter any

difficult, they can quickly respond

and move you to safer ground.

Focus on Egypt today, how big a part

of your market is Egypt and is it

hurting you at the moment, a couple

more weeks still until you are safe

really to go back in there? Are you

expecting people to come back in

their numbers when it's OK to travel

there again.

Yeah, Egypt is one of our top ten

selling destinations. Egypt is on

the top of lots of people's lists,

bucket list, people want to see the

pyramids. It's disappointing for us

to see Egypt in the state of chaos

that it is right now, because so

many travellers really love going

there. Yeah, we have cancelled all

our trips up until 28 February. We

are working with all our passengers

to defer their travel arrangements

to a later date, if that doesn't

suit them, we are

suit them, we are offering them a full refund.

It seems to me that Australian

travellers, sometimes, indeed often,

get themselves into trouble or

manage to offend some one because we

don't do a hell of a lot of research

about our destinations. We turn up

assuming we can behalf as we do

St Kilda beach or Bondi, in assuming we can behalf as we do on St Kilda beach or Bondi, in the

middle of Thai land or in the Middle

East. What are your top tips about

knowing what you are getting into

and you can remain safe and avoid

offence I suppose.

Yeah, sure, number one tip is choose

a travel with a travel company that

knows a destination inside and out.

You really want to choose a company

that has local tour leaders. Has a

ground operations team in the

region. So if you do come into any

difficult, they can respond and get

you out of there. Respect local

customs. So, unfortunately, the

Australian national uniform of bond

singlet, T shirt and thongs, not

really acceptable in other

countries. Best to leave that at

home. You don't want to draw

unwanted attention to you, you could

be breaking the law. Just be mindful

of that. My next tip would be travel

insurance. So important. I can't

stress this enough. You really

should get it. Things do sometimes

go wrong. You want to be able to

travel with that Peas of mind and

get on with enjoying your holiday.

It's pretty cheap as a percentage of your holiday.

your holiday.? We are happy to

insure our car but not insure

ourselves when we go on holidays

I notice also on the list you've got

make sure you get vaccinated and

make sure you remain well informed

by changing situations in the

country. We are out of time, sorry.

Thank you for having me.

Thank you, any time. I

I don't think it's only Australians

that are dumb when it comes to

travel.

Absolutely not.

I walked into the Sistine Chapel

once behind some Americans, as you

go through the roundabout door, they

just stop, so everybody coming

behind you and then the woman looked

up at the roof and went "

up at the roof and went "oh Hank " up at the roof and went "oh Hank

"the roof is painted.

"the roof is painted."

It reminds me of the American lady I

saw on Circular Quay, you know the

It's arguably one of the most anticipated songs of the year, but that hasn't stopped Lady Gaga's 'Born this Way' from coming under fire. What's happened, Tomm?

Well, there's a lot of discussion,

Gaga who was born in the 1980s when

Madonna dominated the world, that

Madonna is and what, the most

anticipated song as Gaga returns to the radio, the radio,'Born This Way' is a rip

off of a Madonna classic. Let's a

look at what Gaga has concocted.

# I'm on the right

# I was born this way

# I am on the rise

# I was born this way

# .

# Baby I was born this way

# Baby I was born this

# This way

# Later I was born this way

# Baby, I was born this way.

This is a four minute dance song

that's empowering, it could go to

number one obviously. It might be

the first number one song to ever

use the word "

use the word "transgender" everybody

here is talking about the idea that

it's kind of a faster beat version

of Madonna's express yourself. Let's

compare.. of Madonna's express yourself. Let's compare.

# Put your love to the test

# You know, you know, you have to

make express

# Baby let you know your love is

real. So if express hit the air

waves in 1989, that was 3 years

after Gaga was born, but Lady Gaga

knows how to perform and belt it

in the recording studio. Is she copy knows how to perform and belt it out

Madonna in this anthem of take

power, if even you are not part of

the social norm, is she replicating

the style that Madonna made so

? popular? What do you think

I think it's hard not to soak up

some of the Motiffs of your cultural

environment.

This is the show business report.

Can you stop using words with more

than two sill ab wills.

If I can just quo. Dorb

Do you know, Madonna still does it

better you know. Rather than Lady Gaga.

But people are saying that Gaga has

a better voice and in a more

encompassing style. Madonna is

ageing. She will be 53 this year.

Madonna at the same age,

She is a hard working She is a hard working mother.

How old is Lady Gaga? She was born in She was born

She was born 1984. She is 24 right

now. But, Gaga has a message that

the people love. She is really super

Twitter and Facebook popular on'The Social Network', the

Twitter and Facebook. She will make

millions off of this. It will be a

number one hit in my country and

your country, the globe over.

I think she is belting out a great

Morning, Jess. Good morning. Egypt is a country in a state of euphoria this morning after President Hosni Mubarak finally stepped down overnight. Crowds erupted into joyous celebrations as the Vice President announced Mr Mubarak was handing power to the army. ,

When it came to it, Mubarak couldn't

even do it himself. It fell to his

deputy to break the momentous news.

People of Egypt in the difficult People of Egypt in the

times that our country is going

through shall, the President, Hosni

Mubarak, has decided to step down

from his post as the President. He

asks that I commission of the armed

forces to take charge.

Yan insabt, frustrating here was

replaced by ecstacy and euphoria. It

was total victory for ordinary

Egyptians. Having been km/hed by

Mubarak for 30 years, the people

proved themselves irresistible in

the space of 3 weeks. He was forced

to bow to their will.

to bow to their will.. Less than 24

hours ago, Mubarak's last attempt to

Molify the masses backfired

spectacularly. We saw the reaction

here, such was the pressure,

something had to give. In the

of the pharaohs, Hosni Mubarak has something had to give. In the land

gone the way of his ancient

predecessors. He is history. . And a short time ago US President Barack Obama spoke to the world's media about the uprising in Egypt. There are very few moments in our lives where we have the privilege to witness history taking place. This is one of those moments, this is one of those times. their voices have been heard The people of Egypt have spoken, and Egypt will never be the same. at the end of the month Julian Assange will learn to Sweden. whether he's to be extradited He's wanted for questioning

I know you will be running home to

watch the V8s on Seven tonight.

One of my favourite things.

Simon,

the little dog should have been the

drummer for spinal tap I reckon. Holden's Jamie Whincup has had a magic night under lights in Abu Dhabi, charging ahead to claim victory in the V8 supercar season opener.

Rival Ford driver Alex Davison got off to a red-hot start but barely got a look in towards the end, finishing second, a huge 13 seconds behind Whincup in the 200 kilometre race. Defending champion James Courtney limped home in 26th place after suffering steering damage. You can see the race today on Seven. In AFL, there are promising signs for Melbourne who started their 2011 campaign with consecutive victories in the NAB Cup overnight. The Demons started the night by disposing of the Crows by 10 points. They then backed up to down Port Adelaide by 9. Port rounded out a bad night, being thumped by Adelaide 40-8. And while Dees coach Dean Bailey was happy with his team he had some strong ideas about the new out-of-bounds rule. I'd drop it straight away. You've had your experiment, I don't think it's a rule that's going to benefit either team or the game, I don't think. He says it created too much confusion on the field. In rugby league, Wests Tigers have started their pre-season with a bang, beating the Cowboys by 12 in North Queensland. The Sea Eagles thumped the Sharks 18-0, boosted by the return of Wolfman David Williams who scored two tries. The Melbourne Storm beat Ipswich 34-10 in the first half of a trial match but were on the wrong end of a 10-0 result against Brisbane's East Tigers in the second half. In the A-League - Adelaide United have emerged from a form slump to secure third spot on the ladder,

recording a gutsy 2-1 injury time win over arch rivals Melbourne Victory last night. COMMENTATOR: It's flicked on into the back of the nets. Thompson scores. (CHEERING) The Reds now go into the finals with a big confidence boost. And Australian cyclist Mark Renshaw has broken through for his first professional road race victory winning the Tour of Qatar. A 17th place in the fifth and final stage was enough for Renshaw to claim the overall win over Heinrich Haussler. Lead-out man Renshaw was promoted to the top spot after sprint king Mark Cavendish was injured in a first stage crash.

Nice sound effects, well done.

Cow imagine the pictures. Voom, voom.

You sound like the first person to

do the V8s in a Mazda 2.

You are a frustrated mother and

daughter. Jye must say I prefer

fairy wings and park also.

Wasn't it out of bounds.

If you are the last man to touch the

ball in the NAB Cup rules, then the

other side gets a kick. So look, I

think Dean Bailey is right.

Can't we talk fair which Can't we talk fair which wings instead?

Go on, go on.

What are you talking about. Isn't

that out of bounds?

You and I.

This is like a very bad dinner party.

How is that bashy going?

The gas has gone off.

I will go and get you another beer. I will go and get you another beer.. Weather time now with James Tobin.

You just have to watch enough

reality TV shows to know that life

is a journey. It's all about taking

yourself outside of your comfort

zone. I am at Luna Park, the slogan is zone. I am at Luna Park, the slogan is "

is "just for fun" I am going to

suggest, that's not just true, it's

about scaring yourself. If you are

scared of ghost, if you are scared

of rollercoaster, go on the

of rollercoaster, go on the great Scenic Railway. If you are scared of

spiders, go on the spider. Spiders

have 8 legs. I've done the maths.

There are only 6 on this ride. I

think the other 2 flew off. They are

away for cleaning. So I'm going to

give it a go, it is nothing like the

Cup and saucer ride that you have

seen in other amousement parks. Look

how terrifying the spider looks. I'm

going to get on and have a go after

the weather. On the regional fly-around - a few showers in Cairns. A late shower in Rockhampton. Showers in Bundaberg. A possible shower in Brisbane. In New South Wales - a warm 36 degrees in Bourke. 26 in Newcastle. Rain in Sydney. A top of 20 degrees in Canberra.

Morning rain for Albury. Early rain for Mildura. Partly cloudy in Bendigo. Showers for Melbourne. Fine for Strahan. 20 degrees in Hobart. Partly cloudy in Mount Gambier. A top of 27 in Adelaide. Thunderstorms for Coober Pedy. 25 for Alice Springs. Storms for Darwin. And in WA - morning drizzle for Albany. Sunny for Bunbury. Mostly sunny in Perth. Thunderstorms for Exmouth and Carnarvon.

I didn't expect the ride to go that

quickly before I

quickly before I got through the

weather forecast. It's quite

sickening to ride the weather script

and ride in the spider. Andy is the

sound guy. Don't get into the spider

when you are reading live on television.

It's certainly a hardship reading

that looks like fun.

Bye, Andrew.

A lot of celebrating going on

Luna Park obviously. A lot of celebrating going on in Luna Park obviously.. There are jubilant celebrations in Cairo following the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. After two weeks of mass protests, Mubarak has finally stepped down, handing power to the army.

Thousands have taken to Tahrir Square, cheering and waving flags. We're joined now by our foreign affairs editor, Dr Keith Suter. Good morning. Incredible scenes we're seeing.

This of course is just the beginning.

Absolutely. The problem is that I

don't want to be putting a damener

on the party but what we are seeing

is really fantastic, that's great

news but then you've got the morning

after. The problem for Egypt is that

even if you are the best prime

minister in the world or best

president, you've got immense

problems. Egypt has got about 85

million people. You've got a growing

population. A shortage of jobs. If

the country is obviously wrecked

it's tourist industry in the last 3

weeks because of all the unrest

weeks because of all the unrest so it will take a while to rebuild that

industry. If it were to go down the

path of rapid industrial path of rapid industrialisation,

it's difficult to see how we would

be able to create a Newmarket

because the Chinese make

because the Chinese make everything in the world now. It will be

difficult to see how an in coming

government is going to be able to

roll out the sort of economic

reforms that the people are

demanding. So you've got the

political reforms. They can be

introduced I assume by the

introduced I assume by the military in the next few weeks and months in

the lead up to an election. After

you the lead up to an election. After

you get the pole it tall

institutionness place, you have then

have the problems of economic change

and a period of great uncertainty,

not to mention a global financial

crisis, we have done very well during the global financial crisis

but a lot of the rest of the world

has not.

For sure. Now, President Obama made

a speech a couple of hours after

Mubarak resigned. He said the

Egyptians had inspired us through

the moral force of their non violent

revolution. Let's have a listen to

some of what he had to say.

There are very few moments in our

lives where we have the privilege of witnessing history taking place.

This is one of those moments. This

is one of those times. The people of

Egypt have spoken. Their voices have

been heard and Egypt will never be

the same. By stepping down,

President Mubarak responded to the

Egyptian people's hunger for change.

But this is not the end of Egypt's

transition. It's a beginning. I am

sure there will be difficult days

ahead. And many questions remain

unanswered. But I am confident that

the people of Egypt can find the

answers and do so Peasfully,

constructively and in the spirit of

unity that has defined these last few weeks.

Yes, difficult days ahead for the

Egyptian as well as for the

Americans one would imagine, having

now lost their biggest ally in now lost their biggest ally in the Middle East? Exactly

And also ale Race biggest ally

For the Israelis there must be a lot

of fear. They have had stability on

their southern border for 30 years.

That possibly will change. In the case of Americans on the one

case of Americans on the one hand they have got to congratulate the

Egyptians on a peaceful revolution

but they don't want that revolution

to sweep throughout the rest of the

Arab world and get rid of the old

men who run the oil rich countries

like Saudi Arabia. On on one hand

it's good news, we don't want others

following the example.

America will have no United America will have no

America will have no influence

The problem for Obama is the

republicking say he lost Egypt. If

they fall into Kayo they will say

that's because Obama distribute do

enough to push up Mubarak.

A lot of people may be confused by

seeing Mubarak and Obama in

seeing Mubarak and Obama in the on

the television in the same hour.

Stick around. We will get more from you shortly. A real change of pace now and the obsession with the romance of Shane Warne and Liz Hurley - or Shurley -

Or Shaniz as Andrew is calling them! Or Shaniz as Andrew is calling them!. is at an all-time high. The media is following their every move as the loved-up couple spends quality time in Melbourne.

Bookies are now even taking bets on when the pair will wed. So what's the obsession? With more we're joined by 'The Sun's Australian correspondent Frank Thorne. Welcome, Frank. What's the latest on the Shurley romance?

Well, one of my mates who is a

paparazzi outside said they have

dubbed them horny, not Warnie. dubbed them horny, not Warnie..

Shurley not. Anyway, I think Shane

is a crap tour guide. He should get

out more. Liz tweeted that she

wanted to see our koalas and

kangaroo and the only wildlife she

is seeing is the paparazzi.

Maybe there is some wildlife going

on inside. Possibly yes.

You think he would have planned,

maybe she has some trips coming

maybe she has some trips coming up in the future, to get out and see a koala?

We hope so, she has to be here for a

couple of weeks. We want to see her. Bookies are taking bets on when the pair will wed.

What sort of odds are they talking?

The initial odds seem very generous

to me. I am not a betting man, but 8

to 1 to get married this year, 2011,

but of course she is a married lady.

The odds shortened to 2012 to 2 to

1. More interestingly, they are

offering I think it's 6 to 1 for a

baby born before 2015. So Shane

better get to work.

I am sure he is.

Weather they are saying it's 500 to

one, whether somebody is playing for

Australia. I don't know whether they

are refer to go Shane or the baby,

but, if you put that bet on for the

kid, you would have to wait quite a

few years to collect. Really

quickly, is this huge in England?

It's a lot of fun. In fact, another

guy from Melbourne is taking the

headlines, this is a'Dancing on Ice'

judge called Jason Gardiner who has

had a huge row on screen with

another member of the cast but Warne

and Liz is a side show and we are

loving it. So, good on them. Keep it going.

Good on them, thank you, Frank,

great to talk to you My pleasure.

Hard to believe that Warnie didn't

have a single place to take her for lunch.

He would want a light lunch because

he is on the diet. Ahead on Weekend Sunrise - Lady Gaga's latest single is out. Fans around the world are going crazy online but is it really worth all the hype? But after the break - some scary new stats showing kids as young as 10 are in rehab. Just how bad has Australia's binge drinking problem become? More on that when Weekend Sunrise continues. They can harbour harmful germs. with unique Micro-Lock Technology to trap and lock more messes and kill 99.9% of household germs for a complete clean. Pine O Cleen Complete Clean Wipes, You know those moments when you all pile into the car and set a course for the beach? Which seems like a great idea till you realise everyone in the known universe has the exact same great idea. So you invent dumb games and take turns at playing DJ, all the while cursing your mate's car and its distinct lack of aircon. And before you know it, you're there. And after an epic swim, you grab a bunch of Bondi Burgers and sit in the sand to eat and watch the sun go down. I like those moments. SONG: # Just gotta go Oporto. # There's alarming new reports about the extent of binge drinking by Aussie kids and teens. Children as young as 10 are reportedly seeking treatment for alcohol addiction while figures show five teens and young people die each week in binge-drinking related incidents. So are our teens out of control and what can be done to fix the problem? It's over to our Weekend All Stars - author and comedian Tim Ross and social commentator Prue MacSween. Good morning to you both. Prue, is this worrying?

I know you have strong views on

this? What can we do to solve the

problem do you think.

Look, it's not an easy, there are so

many factors that are contribut
