And now with sport, to form continues, St Kilda's remarkable return on the trot overnight recording their sixth win of the desperate Dockers. at the expense for a big win, The Saints looked headed at quarter time getting out to a 17-point lead with the Dockers booting six goals. but Freo hit back in the second with a slim 4-point lead St Kilda went to the main break both sides kick three goals apiece. before another tough third term saw that was brilliant! COMMENTATOR: Schneider... a goalless Fremantle in the fourth, But the Saints steamrolled to sit sixth on the ladder. winning by 41 points a stirring win The Tigers conjured up overnight over defending premiers the Dragons at the Sydney Football Stadium. during a thrilling contest to the final seconds The result came down to score from just 10 metres out with the Dragons threatening but they were beaten by the clock, the Tigers claiming a 2-point victory. COMMENTATOR: The Tigers have won and the Tigers make it four in a row and the Dragons have lost three straight. What a night and what a finish! But the win came at a cost with Chris Lawrence suffering a hamstring injury. He'll have an MRI scan today. And the Bulldogs have also kept their season alive, too strong for the North Queensland Cowboys to claim the Reconciliation Cup at ANZ. Jimmy's told us to play footy and play off the cuff and throw the ball round when you've got space. So all the boys are jumping onboard and we're just enjoying it. The Cowboys are praying injured captain Jonathan Thurston will be back in time for next week's all-important clash against the Broncos. The Wallabies go into tonight's test against the All Blacks with the odds and history stacked against them. to undermine them at their Eden Park fortress. They've certainly shown against the Africans two weeks ago that they got given a crack and they scored and they scored straight away again So we've got to make sure we don't give them those chances. The Wallabies are hoping youth in the squad will be the key to dismantling Richie McCaw's ageing All Blacks. The Aussies are still right in contention in the second round at the Bridgestone International PGA at Firestone in Ohio with Adam Scott and Jason Day tied in a 5-way lead at 8 under. Former world number one Tiger Woods couldn't get a charge going following up his opening 68 with a round of 71 to slip to 1 over for the tournament. And our Aussie Twenty20 team is confident they've got a couple of things working in their favour ahead of today's opener against Sri Lanka. Key paceman Lasith Malinga has been ruled out and the wicket is expected to offer plenty of bounce and pace. I really hope we win tonight. Everything is crossed. Maybe you other one to defeat him. Youth and a fairly good back line. I do not know why I said that. It is very early. I do not know either. Good morning. When I was a kid we would beat the All Blacks all the time. Wouldn't it be good if we thumped them. When I was a kid dole all kids have something a bit weird about them stop if you're a kid and you feel your ears are bigger than other people's, you will grow into them. I used to think I had a massive teeth. Luckily I grew into them. Now I think I look relatively normal. I'll always hoped that one day these teeth would come in handy and would be useful for something. I am going to use them for the next month as a testing ground for the nation. This mouth is an experiment because Sunrise... Weekend sunrise and Orrell be are conducting of the powering Australian smiles tour. Will you be lending a seven for 7 with your teeth? I will be driving the truck around. How are you, Stella? Stella is a dentist and we cannot show you her face. Is it true that and an Oral B toothbrush remove small plaque than any other? Have you met Rob the dentist? Can you tell us what he looks like, we have never seen him? What does he look like? Now let's take a look at the forecast. On the regional fly-around - a few showers in Cairns. Chance of a shower in Townsville. In Bundaberg, a shower or two. Showers here in Brisbane. In New South Wales - partly cloudy in Coffs Harbour. Possible shower in Tamworth. Late rain in Sydney. Rain in Canberra. And in Wagga, rain at times. A few showers for Ballarat. Developing showers in Melbourne. In Launceston, rain and 13. And a rainy 10 degrees in Hobart. Afternoon showers in Mount Gambier. Late rain in Adelaide. Mostly sunny in Alice Springs. And sunny for Darwin. And in WA - mostly sunny in Albany. Late showers in Perth. Sunny in Broome. And a cloudy day for Carnarvon. If you are waking up in Perth and freaking out that you're going to have a top of two degrees, I think there might have been a number missing. For the next month I'm going around Australia encouraging people to swap their manual toothbrush for a power toothbrush. You will seriously notice the difference. I tell the story... I will tell the story of my power brush experience in half an hour and I may reveal stellar's face. This is a legal in 49 states in the US. In some countries up until recently there was corporal punishment if you reveal their dentist's face. But I am feeling brave. I think she is in Brisbane this morning. Just ahead for you this morning on Weekend Sunrise - Kronic death - WA cracks down further on a synthetic cannabis drug after the death of a man in Perth. But next - more turmoil on world financial markets as Aussies count the cost of yesterday's massive losses. This cup's for you, complainers. Thanks to you, we've changed to a richer, smoother blend.

We're re-training our baristas so we've changed Corey... ..for Corey. And if you're still not satisfied, we'll replace your coffee for free. Here's something different - a nasal decongestant designed to stay where it sprays. So it unblocks your nose quickly, it helps prevent that nasty-tasting drip down your throat.

Drixine No Drip Formula. It's been another night of turmoil on world markets with Wall Street managing something of a comeback while Europe took another hammering. CNBC reporter Mandy Drury joins us from New York. Hello, Amanda. The Dow was slightly stronger? Yes, we are suffering from whiplash here. Stocks were at their steepest lost today because of the news that we may have a deal in Europe involving what analysts say we really need which is that the European Central Bank is prepared to making the purchases of Spanish and Italian debt. Why do we care? A lot of the market selling in the US and Australia has been on the fear of a credit crisis scenario in Europe spreading around the world. Not a bad finish today when you consider this morning the US markets were hurting. The jobs number only gave a fleeting bounce and people saw it as a selling opportunity. Will the short-term the version of the US credit crisis seemed more money flowed back into the markets now? We do not know. We are in a holding pattern. We are getting some market chatter that the US government is bracing for a downgrade by the rating agency and the chatter is that it could come as soon as today or by the weekend which would be when your market in Australia is opening up. If that happens it will cause a lot more pain in the stock market when we reopen Monday morning. In the meantime there are people that are saying you can get some bargains out there but you have to have a strong stomach because everyone has been burnt by the last credit crisis three years ago. Some analysts are saying that if the US is downgraded, so what? What will the rest of the world do about it? But obviously it will have a flow on effect. Yes, there will be worldwide repercussions. Europe is really something that we have to watch. There has been some heavy selling pressure. European leaders have called emergency meetings to craft a plan that would prevent Italy or Spain from acquiring large-scale financial help to avoid a debt default. You do not want a debt default in those countries because it could spark further defaults around the country. Those two countries are Europe's third and fourth largest economy is so we cannot let them go under. Despite some reassuring words from the President in recent out was it sounds like we are still on tenterhooks. Back home now. Western Australia has placed further bans on a cannabis substitute known as Kronic after the death of a 38-year-old Perth man. Police believe he'd been smoking the drug before going into cardiac arrest. Samantha, take us through what happened. The 38-year-old collapsed and suffered a massive heart attack and could not be revived. He had a pre- existing heart condition. A postmortem is being conducted to find out what he died and what Park -- what part Kronic played. This substance is a legal in WA but there are some loopholes? Yes, 7 that versions of synthetic Cammack -- cannabis were banned but the drug make it found a new recipe that was not banned. They called it Kronic Black Label. That is the version the man was smoking before he died. Another 14 After you know of any other cases where people have suffered health issues after using Kronic? Yes well this is the first death linked to Kronic in Australia. Nine people had been rushed to hospital suffering heart palpitations after smoking it. Some fear lawmakers are fighting a losing battle because every time a version is banned another one is created. Change of pace now. In just two nights - Australians will be doing one thing - filling out their Census forms. And we're about to meet some little Aussies who've just made the count. New South Wales Census director Mark Harding joins me now from Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital. Hello, Mark. How many extra Australians do you have there this morning? Yes, there is a natural ambience here at the maternity ward. We are welcoming some new arrivals to Australia who will make the count on Census night on Tuesday nine August. What is the cut off to make it into the Census? As long as a baby is born before midnight on Tuesday the 9th, they make Tuesday the 9th, they make the counter. We're talking about 1159 and 59 seconds. Why is it important that we get the Census right? It is all about planning for the future, core infrastructure and services across Australia in every community. For these little guys it is all about schools and child care and hospitals like where we are right now. It is also about recreational facilities and things everybody uses. We want to make sure our infrastructure is meeting our demands. We need to get the Census right. How do we ensure that everyone actually gets a Census form? We have 29,000 collectors around the country handing out forms and envelopes for people who want to do it online. We go to every door and there are a lot of doors. If you are not home, do they pop it in your mailbox? They will slide it under your tally you can find it. On average a baby is born in Australia every one minute and 46 seconds. A couple of joint accounts just while we have been chatting. Yes. That is the average. It is constant in Australia. What is the total population in Australia at the moment? At the moment we are at 22.7 million. We will see over the next year or whether we have got that right. Thank you for joining us. I can see the "I loved Census" T-shirts going crazy on the market. You can fill out your senses online as well. Thank you mark. Those twins together... So cute. They could almost where the one T-shirt between them. I like Census night and polling day. I like the idea of everyone doing something together. Yes, I suppose. We could all go round to Mark's house and do it together there. Next - news, sport and weather together.

Harpic - cleans up their act like a new loo every time. Celebrity psychic John Edward, live. And the big names keep coming - we go behind the scenes with Rhianna. During up for the senses! -- gearing up for Census. Coming up this morning - the simple painkiller scientists now reckon can give you a brain boost. Plus - stock horror - the mess on Aussie markets - how low will they go? But right now, let's get a news hit. Here's Jess. Police say they're amazed no-one was killed after a four-wheel drive, with 2 adults and 10 children crammed onboard, crashed in Melbourne's west. Only one of the children was wearing a seatbelt when the Mitsubishi Pajero rolled at Rockbank at around 5:00 yesterday afternoon. Police say the 34-year-old female driver is unlicensed and returned a positive breath test. Of the 10 children, 3 children received injuries, two children with broken legs and one child with minor facial injuries. It was quite disturbing to see 12 people come out of one vehicle when it's only licenced to seat seven. A 32-year-old male passenger was arrested at the scene for public drunkenness. Wall Street has finished trade slightly higher this morning after better-than-expected jobs growth. It comes after $55 billion was wiped off the Australian sharemarket yesterday. Treasurer Wayne Swan has urged investors to remain calm despite the bloodbath. Australian economy has strong economic fundamentals. Despite small gains in the US, European stocks plunged as fears of another global recession continue to grip world markets. The father of the Sydney schoolgirl at the centre of a bomb hoax says his family will not feel safe until those responsible are caught. Businessman Bill Pulver has dismissed suggestions the neck bomb ordeal was an elaborate prank gone wrong. His 18-year-old daughter, Madeleine, has been interviewed by detectives for several hours. Police say they're looking into the teenager's social circles and her father's business associates. Around 8,000 South Australian drivers are set to lose their licences and another 20,000 will receive fines as the result of a computer glitch. The problem is with a court's computer system, meaning some offences committed two years ago have only just been processed. I'm sorry it took two years to get sorted out. The offence was still committed and the penalty needs to be applied. All drivers affected by the glitch had applied to the courts for more time to pay their fines. Convicted drug smugglers Schapelle Corby and Renae Lawrence look set to have a few more months cut from their jail sentences. Indonesian authorities have recommended Schapelle's 20-year sentence be reduced by five months. Bali Nine drug mule Renae Lawrence has been recommended for a 6-month reduction. The sentence cuts will be announced on Indonesia's Independence Day later this month. A polar bear has killed a young British adventurer in northern Norway. 17-year-old Horatio Chapple was among a group of 13 from a school who were camping at the glacier when their tents were attacked. Four others were seriously injured. The polar bear has since been killed. And a ceremony has been held in Chile to mark one year since the mine collapse that trapped 33 men underground. The miners, their rescuers and government officials gathered close to the mine site for the anniversary. It took two months to rescue the men, who were pulled to the surface one by one in front of a worldwide audience. St Kilda has consolidated its place in the AFL's top eight, finishing hard to claim a 41-point win over the Dockers at Etihad Stadium. The Saints produced a huge final term, kicking six and holding Freo goalless. There's four weeks to go and we've got a massive game next week against the Pies. They're the benchmark in the competition so it's going to be another big test. Dockers forward Adam McPhee faces suspension after elbowing Sam Gilbert, which sparked this ugly brawl. In NRL, playing for retiring captain Andrew Ryan and with winger Jonathon Wright, mourning the death of his brother, the Bulldogs were hungrier than ever, dismantling the Cowboys 14-6 to keep their finals hopes alive. We've just been ripping them on defence all week and, you know, that's what the club's about and that's what the club's been built on. And Wayne Bennett says his Dragons have shaken off their 'false pretenders' tag despite going down by two points to the Tigers in a thriller at the SFS. The All Blacks say they'll be targeting Will Genia ahead of their Bledisloe Cup clash with the Wallabies tonight with the Aussies convinced they're a big chance of defeating New Zealand. For us it's just about doing our job really well and that'll be the key, you know? 'Cause invariably they often do their job very well. Australia hasn't won at Eden Park since 1986. Adam Scott remains tied for the lead on 8 under at the Bridgestone Invitational after being caught by early movers Ricky Fowler and Ryan Moore. I didn't drive it as well today, I missed a few more fairways. So that's when the scores get tricky. But hopefully I can turn that around on the weekend. Fellow Aussie Jason Day is part of a 5-way tie at the top in the second round while Tiger Woods is seven back at 1 under. And Australia's Craig Mottram has outclassed the field at a Diamond League meet in London with a comprehensive win in the 5,000 metres. It's a massive confidence boost for Mottram ahead of the world championships, the veteran looking to revive his injury torn athletics career. Now let's take a look at the forecast. To my very big-headed he's starting to shrink. I named myself a power ambassador. We're talking about getting into a power brush because they are more effective than a manual brush. On this power themed I invited a few very powerful men and women down. Let me introduce you to the Queensland police and fire service. See, I told you before the show I would look after you this morning Sam. These are certainly some powerful men who do some powerful work around Queensland. Cameron, we have an experiment set up to work out who is the most powerful service. Who do you think it is? It is an easy decision for me it is not the cops. These guys are pretty sloppy. My boys are in the blow. Let's test them and see how they go. We will have one of the boys demonstrate how we roll out a hose. When would you do this? When Will Rock up at a fire, we have it rolled up and they jump out and flip it out and it is the quickest way to get water onto the fire. That was a pretty good job there by Chris. What Mark would you give him? I would give him a nine out of 10. We will see how the police force do it after the weather forecast. A trough and front are triggering rain and isolated storms over the southern states. Warm north-west winds ahead of this system bringing higher temperatures in New South Wales. A slow-moving high is maintaining onshore winds and showers along the east coast of Queensland. A high is bringing dry conditions to WA. The 5-day forecast shows there is more rain and chance of storms until Tuesday. Into Sydney, late rain and 23 today and the outlook shows rain is to continue through the week. Canberra, light rain and 15 today with similar conditions expected for the next five days. In Melbourne, showers developing and 15. The same forecast expected till Wednesday. Hobart, a rainy day with tops of 10 degrees. Rain will continue, slightly easing by Tuesday. In Adelaide, evening showers and 16. Expect a wet weekend with rain easing by Monday. Perth will have late showers and 22. Looking ahead, rain set in until fining up by Tuesday.

And in Darwin, mostly sunny and 31 with similar conditions forecast for the next five days. It seems like a slightly unfair competition but you set the parameters. Have the boys from the police been given instruction on how to do this? We gave them instructions for about 10 seconds. They are not looking good. One policeman and one firemen, Ready, Set, Go! In terms of straight, I'm giving it to the police! Take it away! That was a terrible one. That one definitely goes to the firemen. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The firefighters and police officers from New York are having a service and a game of rugby league. That is to honour the fallen from that day. When are you doing it and where is the tapping -- happening? It is happening over-rate East junior rugby league? It is an open day, the public can come and all the money goes to the royal children's hospital. By my calculations that was one to the police and one to the firemen. We need to break the deadlock. I have an idea. Stay watching. Sam, you are going to like this. Does it involve their shirts off? Watching those hoses unravel was a bit like watching Sam's tongue when she saw the fireman for the first time. In Sam's defence, there is something about firemen... They are about firemen... They are lovely, they rescue people, they are in uniform. Your tongue rolled uniform. Your tongue rolled across the table like a chameleon spotting an insect. Still to come this morning on Weekend Sunrise - toxic mates - bad friendships causing mayhem and misery. Why we find it so hard to free ourselves. But next - brain boost - the simple, over-the-counter pain killer that could be a saviour for your mind.

MAN: The way it moves. The way it cleans.

The way it makes you feel. Everything about an Oral-B Power brush is simply revolutionary. Our dentist-inspired brush head cleans in three directions, surrounding each tooth to power away twice as much plaque

It's only three days until Census night, so let us shed some light on what you have to do. Firstly, your Census form will be delivered. Then on Census night, you can either complete your form to be collected or do it online at census.gov.au

What you say will go a long way to helping your community wherever you are. So shed some light on Census night, August 9. Census. For a brighter future. and what if you could get it, from an over-the-counter pill normally used to treat aches and pains? Scientists believe Paracetamol can give your memory a jump start by activating key brain cells that control recall, learning and problem solving. And a ground-breaking Melbourne study has found multi-vitamins and other dietry supplements can also improve brain function. Weekend Sunrise GP Dr Ginni Mansberg is on the couch to tell us more. Good morning. Paracetamol is one of the world's most popular painkillers. How do they reckon it boosts brain power? What they're saying is that they think it has a week anti- inflammatory action. Except we have always thought anti-inflammatory tablets were like aspirin whereas paracetamol mainly worked on pain and fever but they think that might be the reason it has other benefits besides pain and fever. Our guinea pig here put to appeals in his mouth at once. How good is that? What other problems with taking too much paracetamol? If people start to to pocket two boost their brain function? It is toxic in high doses and is the number one cause of overdose in children. Too much Panadol? Yes, it is dangerous. It is brilliant in small doses but shocking in big doses. One pill a day, is that too much? This study looks at four pills a day. This study... Where a lot better in the farm on it right now. It has a contradictory claim. It says in lower doses paracetamol may hamper memory but when you up the dose it has the opposite effect. You have to take so much a bit to get a decent anti-inflammatory effect. It is funny... I have so many patients who say they cannot sleep at night unless they pop a Panadol. I was thinking to myself it was a placebo but now I think maybe there was something there, maybe it does affect the brain. What about the multi- buy to an aspect of the study? It is interesting, I do not think he would find many doctors who would say Malta by Timmons affect the brain but they're suggesting that if you take on every single day it might boost the brain. One study in France looked at old people in homes and the ones who took while departments every day were less likely to have Alzheimer's disease. But I think the type of people who take by ottomans are likely to be healthier people anyway. You tend to be a healthy person who goes to the health food store or not. They were not asked about the rest of the stuff. Also if you develop Alzheimer's you forget to take the Malta by ottomans. There could be a correlation. If you look at most of the people who study these sorts of things they do not take them because there is not enough evidence for them. Our other studies funded by a writer men companies? No, they are good analyses of their research. -- By Tim and Another one that seemed to show it might boost your rate of prostate cancer. You're better off getting a moulded buttons from your moulded buttons from your broccoli and asparagus. At the end of the day if you just take a few and 80 veggies and a sensible... veggies and a sensible... Fish oil is my thing and... Yes, that is good, plankton oil... Krill oil or... That is the new one. In just a moment we'll check on the latest showbiz news including - President Barr? Roseanne announces she's running for the White House.

And, lasting legacy - the future for Amy Winehouse's London flat. Tommy Taylor is next. I'm taking the UNCLE TOBYS Oats Cholesterol Challenge for six weeks. Yeah!

'90s TV star Roseanne Barr has made a big announcement during the night? Yes, she started as a stand-up comic on television and she was hugely popular and now she wants to take over the White House. She was on late-night television. My announcement is that I AM running for President of the Unite States. Wow, there you go. She holds a gun like Dick Cheney, she might be successful. She is keen in the idea that she wants to abolish paper money and get rid of tax taxes. But she is focusing on the idea that the American political system is broken. She is creating her own party. She is not a Democrat or Republican. She is creating the American green tea party and maybe take over the White House. I can see something similar to the Lincoln Monument in the Washington, a big couch with Roseanne line on it. Moving on, there's news on what is to become of late singer Amy Winehouse's London flat? Her father is keen to create a memory of Amy Winehouse to help people battling with addiction. Her home is valued at $10 home is valued at $10 million, three storeys, 10 rooms. In September and he would have turned 28th -- in September as Amy would have turned 28 so he is looking at auctioning her house on that day. And some previously unreleased work of hers will fund the facility? Tony Bennett, an American singer, who was very successful, recorded a song in March with Amy Winehouse. The proceeds will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. He has also recorded with Mariah Carey and Michael boucle. That album will be out in September. For fans of Amy Winehouse, her vocal talent on the new album is supposed to be amazing. It was recorded at the Abbey Road facility is in March. Next - news, sport and weather together. You're watching Weekend Sunrise. Back with more in just a tick. This morning - 10 children and 2 adults crammed into a four-wheel drive as it crashes in Melbourne's west. Wall Street claws back some lost ground with another day of massive losses in Europe as Aussie investors count the cost of yesterday's $55 billion market plunge. Also today - toxic mates - bad friendships ruining lives. How you can break free, guilt-free. And... My announcement is that I AM running for President of the Unite States. Wow! Is she serious? Roseanne Barr announces a bid for the White House. It's Saturday 6 August 2011. Now back to Weekend Sunrise with Andrew and Sam. I think John Goodman will be appointed head of the reserve. Roseanne does hold a gun like Dick Cheney. The unlicensed driver of a four-wheel drive that rolled in Melbourne with 10 children on board has returned a positive breath test. Reporter Ben McNair joins me with more from Melbourne. Police say these children are lucky to be alive? Some of the police we spoke to said it was one of the most chaotic scenes they had ever seen. Nine children were unrestrained. One child was in a restrained. The car left the road around five o'clock on the Western Highway, just off the Western Highway. It rolled over several times but amazingly none of the children were seriously injured. Two were taken to the world children's hospital with suspected fractures and the rest were taken locally for observation. The two adults were in the car, it is a terrifying story. The male passenger was arrested at the crime scene for being drunk in a public place and the female driver, a 34- year-old Epping woman was taken to a local police station where she was found to be a licensed and returned a positive breath test. Incredibly lucky that none of those children were more seriously hurt. Thank you Ben McNair, reporting from Melbourne. Investors are being told not to panic after $55 billion was wiped off the Australian share market yesterday. There's been some relief on Wall Street overnight following better-than-expected jobs figures. US President Barack Obama has tried to calm fears of another global financial crisis. What I want the American people and our partners around the world to know is this - we are going to get through this. Things will get better. Economic instability in the US and Europe has seen $2.5 trillion wiped off world stocks this week. Taking a look at the markets: Detectives will examine security camera vision from homes along one of Sydney's wealthiest streets as the hunt continues for those behind a fake neck bomb. 18-year-old Madeleine Pulver is back home with her family, recovering after her 10-hour ordeal on Wednesday night. Police say the investigation is well advanced but will be lengthy. It's a serious matter. This is the sort of crime we haven't seen in Australia before. Madeleine's father, businessman Bill Pulver, says his family will not feel safe until the perpetrator is caught. He's dismissed suggestions it was an elaborate prank gone wrong. A huge blaze has gutted a Brisbane chemical factory overnight. Fire crews were called to the blaze in Sumner in the city's south-west at around 6:30. More than 50 firefighters fought the blaze with a 100m exclusion zone set up around the factory. What we see is fireballs going about 30m or 40m into the air. No-one was injured in the fire. The cause of the blaze is being investigated. A British teenager has been mauled to death by a polar bear during an expedition in the Norwegian Arctic. 17-year-old Horatio Chapple was one of more than a dozen people gathered at a camp site, when the bear attacked. Four others were seriously hurt before the bear was eventually shot dead. We and the Norwegian authorities are currently establishing the full circumstances of his tragic death. Authorities say it's uncommon for a polar bear to attack so many people. NASA is hoping to learn more about our solar system's largest planet, launching a rocket to Jupiter early this morning. 'Juno' is the first solar-powered mission to venture this far from the sun. The robotic explorer is set to travel more than 2.5 billion kilometres, reaching Jupiter in 2016. Space travel is so exciting. I always wanted to be an astronaut. The space station is gone but they're still doing that St Kilda's remarkable return to form continues, recording their sixth win in a row at the expense of the Dockers, whose slide continues. The Saints looked headed for a big win, getting out to a 17-point lead at quarter time but Freo hit back in the second with the Dockers booting six goals. St Kilda went to the main break leading by four points before a knife edge third term saw both sides kick three goals apiece, setting up a big last quarter. COMMENTATOR: Schneider! That was brilliant! But the Saints steamrolled a goalless Fremantle in the fourth, winning by 41 points to muscle into sixth on the ladder. The Tigers produced a stunning comeback win over defending premiers the Dragons overnight in a thrilling contest at the Sydney Football Stadium. The result was in doubt in the final seconds with the Dragons threatening to score from just 10 metres out but they were beaten by the clock, the Tigers claiming a 2-point victory. COMMENTATOR: The Tigers have won! The Tigers make it four in a row! The Dragons have lost three straight. What a night and what a finish! But the win came at a cost with Chris Lawrence suffering a hamstring injury. He'll have an MRI scan today. And the Bulldogs have also kept their season alive, too strong for the North Queensland Cowboys to claim the Reconciliation Cup at ANZ. Jimmy's told us to play footy and play off the cuff and throw the ball round when you've got space. So all the boys are jumping onboard and we're just enjoying it. The Cowboys are praying injured captain Jonathan Thurston will be back in time for next week's all-important clash against the Broncos. The Aussies are still right in contention in the second round at the Bridgestone International at Firestone in Ohio with Adam Scott in a 4-way tie at the top at 8 under. Jason Day is a shot back after a bogey at the last. Former world number one Tiger Woods with his new caddie followed up his opening 68 with a round of 71 to slip to 1 over for the tournament. And The Wallabies go into tonight's test against the All Blacks with the odds and history stacked against them but New Zealand admits Australia poses a real threat to undermine them at their Eden Park fortress. They've certainly shown against the Africans two weeks ago that they got given a crack and they scored and they scored straight away again and they're a team that can do that to you. So we've got to make sure we don't give them those chances. The Wallabies are hoping youth in the squad will be the key to dismantling Richie McCaw's ageing All Blacks. I can hardly understand a word he says, but he is a great player. We have to go to Webber, but any now came through from NASA saying came through from NASA saying thank you very much. They could not have done it without you. Now it is time for weather. I am taking advantage of the freak dental work offered by Stella, the dentist's. She is a dentist so we cannot show you her face. We are part of the Oral-B powering Australian smiles tour. She is offering great dental check- ups. Still, although we cannot show you -- show people your face, why should people swap to an Oral-B power brush. Last year Oral-B conducted a social experiment in Sydney and 100 residence swapped their manual to the pressures to a power to the brash and at the end of the three months 92% of those residents had virtually no residents had virtually no plaque. That is a fantastic result. It is doing a better job on your teeth than a manual brush? Yes. Brushing with a manual toothbrush with -- for seven minutes gives you the same clean as a two-minute brush with a power to crush. If you swap, you get up to $50 cashback. Sam, I am doing my best to look after you hear her. Now let's take a look at the forecast. On the regional fly-around - a few showers in Cairns. Chance of a shower in Townsville. In Bundaberg, a shower or two. Showers here in Brisbane. In New South Wales - partly cloudy in Coffs Harbour. Possible shower in Tamworth. Late rain in Sydney. Rain in Canberra. And in Wagga, rain at times. A few showers for Ballarat. Developing showers in Melbourne. In Launceston, rain and 13. And a rainy 10 degrees in Hobart. Afternoon showers in Mount Gambier. Late rain in Adelaide. Mostly sunny in Alice Springs. And sunny for Darwin. And in WA -

Sunny in Broome. And a cloudy day for Carnarvon. I used to use a power brush and I went back to a manual but when it broke am when I went to the dentist I was in trouble. It was a mean dentist. He noticed s serious difference between my using a power rush and a manual brush. I have arranged a power brush for all of you. I am not sure who will bring it in but it there is a complementary one for everybody. He is the tooth fairy. It is not just fluffy toys that I bring into the studio but also power brushes. These are top-of-the-range. Sam, if you like, I could get these guys in the track and lock the door and we could drive them back to Maarten place. I can deliver firemen as well. We are pulling out all stops for San today. The poor Queensland fire service and the ageing All Blacks... It is all a bit of fun. Despite something of a claw back on US markets last night it's feared the world may be headed for another global financial crisis. To talk about the impact on Australia, Michael Pascoe joins us from Fairfax Media's 'Business Day'. The Treasurer has been front and centre with these reassuring words. Australia has low unemployment, a strong investment pipeline. The strong financial institutions and we are located in the right part of the world at the right time. He always looks at it terrified when he is reassuring us. And that is when he has got good news! After the horrors on the Australian market yesterday, do you agree with Wayne Swan? Yes I do. There is a bit of a disconnect with our economy and stock market. Our stock market is taking its lead from Wall Street however our economy is still strong. One of the problem for the Europe and the US is that they are in trouble without any room for stimulus. They have not got any money left in at the collective bank to stimulate. If there were problems for Australia we could cut interest rates, the government could spend, we have a cushion. What is happening in the Europe -- US and Europe? It has to be filtered through Asia. Asia is our economy, the US is not our economy. Why do we focus so much on the US? It is a habit. There were cliches trotted out at the beginning of the GMC, when America sneezes, Australia catches a cold. Australia has become spoiled in terms of economic performance. Everything is connected and there will be a knock-on effect to Asia which will have a knock-on effect to us but fundamentally we are not the US. It's been said the GFC was just the dress rehearsal for the main act and that performance has just begun. This is different. Europe is in a can -- financial crisis and the US is in an economic crisis. It is easier for us but harder for them because it drags on. The US and Europe economies are in a decade of pain and are in for low or no growth but that is not our problem. How much confidence do you have in our Government to ride this storm? I have confidence in our Reserve Bank and Treasury. One of the problems in Australia is the adversarial nature of our politics which has lowered confidence in government. People need to look beyond the politicians and they need to look at the people who are advising them who are pretty damn good. We have a good record for the last decade or so. Retail is suffering in Australia. We are being told to save more. Given what we are seeing now, we are right to stash cash, aren't we? Australians went on a boom. 2008 was unsustainable. The global financial crisis saved us and we got a soft landing. We were putting too much on the credit cards. We are rebuilding our own households. Right now, yes, parts of retailers are suffering. The big stores. But other stores are doing nicely and Australians are still spending on personal services and overseas travel. Is this a good time to buy shares? That is a tricky question. It is always a good time to buy Shias if there is genuine value and long-term growth. Right now there are some fantastic long-term dividend growths but share price can bounce around. But the long- term growth that you can get through dividends is rather nice. If you has stashed some cash under your matches now is the time to spend it on shares. It is hardly the Princess and the p when it comes to stashing the cash for you, Sam. Just ahead this morning on Weekend Sunrise - super bad news - Aussie retirement savings wiped, again, by the latest market turmoil. And, homework help - the new cheat sheet for Aussie parents. (CROWS CAW, CICADAS SING) Let me know if any of you wusses can't take it anymore. I know this is harsh, Colorbond, but it's for your own good. (THUNDER RUMBLES) You deserve this sort of treatment! VOICEOVER: Things can get a bit harsh at Colorbond's Australian testing facility.

Suffer! It's testing that ensures Colorbond doesn't just look beautiful, it lasts beautifully. How do you like being girt by sea now?! WOMAN: There are so many ways to have fun. There's the big dipper, the reverse bungee of doom... ..the tip and drip... ..the slurpinator... ..and the twister-twirlatron.

Maggi 2 Minute Noodles - the most fun you can have while eating. Maggi - happiness made simple. Celebrity psychic John Edward, live. And the big names keep coming - we go behind the scenes with Rhianna. A year of painful superannuation growth has effectively gone down the gurglar during the latest market turmoil. Australian shares have lost more than 17% since April which is especially bad news for anyone looking to retire soon. It's over to our Weekend All Stars - Tim 'Rosso' Ross and social commentator Prue MacSween. Good morning to you both. Rosso, unfair for Aussies who have nothing to do with the share market You are topping it up and then... Luckily I am a -- a financial expert. About one year ago I had a tip that something was going to go up in price so I stopped a bunch a way so I have 45 million kilograms of bananas in the freezer. I am defrosting them and selling them at the markets which is working for me. I am going to offload some Aloe Vera from the 1980s, do you want some of that? The thing that saddens me, superannuation is one thing but people who are having a hard time with shares is the people who are not getting held accountable his financial advisers. They tell people to borrow money and leverage things and people get stuck with debts because financial advisers do not look at people's true situations and are not held accountable. They should be held accountable for the way that some people are feeling at the moment. People have to go into these things with their eyes Wide Open, knowing what the risks are. We are talking about basic shares and I feel really sorry for people who have worked all their lives to get off welfare who are self-funded retirees who really are trying to survive. I know of people have lost close to 48% of their superannuation. They planned it really well so they could retire and suddenly they are watching it dwindle and they are genuinely concerned. The government has been tampering a lot with superannuation which is a worry because we should be encouraging everybody to save as much as they can. The burden on our children is such that they will have to pay for us all the people as we get on. We need to redress this sector because it is so important that people are encouraged to save because -- they need to put it away for later and not fall victim to these pressures. The stock market has all these fees and charges. They should not be taxing your super fund at all. They should encourage us to put us weigh as much as we can. It is going to change with an ageing population. Can we get pass go back? Moving on, parents struggling to help their kids with homework can now turn to a new website. It's full of articles, fact sheets and resources to help parents cope with 21st century eduction. Prue, good idea? I think it is a great idea. Having inherited three children and having out to Labor over Mats... Or arithmetic as they call it at my kids' school. If they have to demonstrate three different ways of arriving at a situation. I struggle to help them with one. It is tough. I just think it is tough now for parents because it has changed so much from when we were going to school. I do not understand why they changed it, I thought we did well back then. But with technology the way it is we have to recognise things have changed and we need to adapt. By the time you get to being a parent you have led to so many of your skills laps so badly, particularly in mathematics and science, you have to learn with your children again. That is what schools are for. That is why you send them to school. I'm not doing the teacher's job. I want the school to teach my child. I am not going to Parent teacher night. Only if the teacher is good looking. A less miss Wilson is a looker, I am not going. He says this now... not going. He says this now... You will BDM sea of the trivia night, you will be calling the quick. When you are sitting at the dinner-table and your son starts asking you about Hamlet, I cannot remember, I did that about 100 years ago. Whoever is right in your material is pretty pathetic. Sad. Just ahead on Weekend Sunrise - when mates become enemies - freeing yourself from a toxic friendship. And, urban zoo - the creepier, the better. Why Aussies can't get enough of their bizarre pets. Back in a moment. (BRIGHT ACOUSTIC GUITAR MUSIC) MAN: We at Uncle Tobys have taken strawberries... (MUTTERS APPRECIATIVELY) Mm. ..raspberries... ..and cranberries, added currants, and mixed them with our very finest Uncle Tobys Oats

to bring you new Gourmet Selections. Nobody does oats like Uncle Tobys.

Good morning. Police say they're amazed no-one was killed after a four-wheel drive, with 10 children and 2 adults crammed on board, crashed in Melbourne's west. Only one of the children was wearing a seatbelt when the Mitsubishi Pajero rolled at Rockbank at around 5:00 yesterday afternoon. Police say the 34-year-old female driver is unlicensed and returned a positive breath test. Of the 10 children, 3 children received injuries, two children with broken legs and one child with minor facial injuries. It was quite disturbing to see 12 people come out of one vehicle when it's only licenced to seat seven. A 32-year-old male passenger was arrested at the scene for public drunkenness. Wall Street has finished trade slightly higher this morning after better-than-expected US jobs growth. It comes after $55 billion was wiped off the Australian share market yesterday. But despite the bloodbath, finance experts say our economic outlook remains positive. One of the big problems for Europe and the US, they're heading into trouble without any room for stimulus. If there were problems in Australia, we can cut interest rates, the Government can spend, so we've got a cushion. Despite small gains in the US, European stocks plunged as fears of another global recession continue to grip world markets. The father of the Sydney schoolgirl at the centre of a bomb hoax says his family will not feel safe until those responsible are caught. Businessman Bill Pulver has dismissed suggestions the neck bomb ordeal was an elaborate prank gone wrong. His 18-year-old daughter, Madeleine, has been interviewed by detectives for several hours. Police say they're looking into the teenager's social circles and her father's business associates. Around 8,000 South Australian drivers are set to lose their licences and another 20,000 will receive fines as the result of a computer glitch. The problem is with a court's computer system, meaning some offences committed two years ago have only just been processed. I'm sorry it took two years to get sorted out but the offence was still committed and the penalty needs to be applied. All drivers affected by the glitch had applied to the courts for more time to pay their fines. Convicted drug smugglers Schapelle Corby and Renae Lawrence look set to have a few more months cut from their jail sentences. Indonesian authorities have recommended Schapelle's 20-year sentence be reduced by five months. Bali Nine drug mule Renae Lawrence has been recommended for a 6-month reduction. The sentence cuts will be announced on Indonesia's Independence Day later this month. A polar bear has killed a young British adventurer in northern Norway. 17-year-old Horatio Chapple was among a group of 13 from a school who were camping at the glacier when their tents were attacked. Four others were seriously injured. The polar bear has since been killed. And the man known as Mr Bean has been released from hospital after crashing his McLaren F1 supercar. Actor Rowan Atkinson lost control on an east England highway, slamming his million-dollar car into a tree. The 56-year-old walked away from the accident. St Kilda has cemented its place in the AFL's top eight, finishing strongly to claim a 41-point win over the Dockers at Etihad Stadium. The Saints produced a huge final term, kicking six and holding Freo goalless. There's four weeks to go and we've got a massive game next week against the Pies. They're the benchmark in the competition so it's going to be another big test. Dockers forward Adam McPhee faces suspension after elbowing Sam Gilbert, which sparked a big brawl. In NRL, playing for retiring captain Andrew Ryan and with winger Jonathon Wright mourning the death of his brother, the Bulldogs were highly motivated, dismantling the Cowboys 14-6 to keep their finals hopes alive. We've just been ripping them on defence all week and, you know, that's what the club's about and that's what the club's been built on. And Wayne Bennett says his Dragons have shaken off their 'false pretenders' tag despite going down by two points to the Tigers in a thriller at the SFS. The All Blacks say they'll be targeting Will Genia ahead in their Bledisloe Cup clash with the Wallabies tonight with the Aussies confident they're a big chance of breaking the Eden Park hoodoo. For us it's just about doing our job really well and that'll be the key, you know? 'Cause invariably they often do their job very well. Australia hasn't won at Eden Park since 1986. Adam Scott remains tied for the lead on 8 under at the Bridgestone Invitational after being caught by early movers Ricky Fowler and Ryan Moore. I didn't drive it as well today, I missed a few more fairways. So that's when the scores get tricky. But hopefully I can turn that around on the weekend. Fellow Aussie Jason Day dropped a shot at the last in his second round to be a shot back while Tiger Woods is seven from the lead after a 71. And Australia's Craig Mottram has outclassed the field at a Diamond League meet in London with a comprehensive win in the 5,000 metres. It's a big confidence boost for Mottram ahead of the world championships as the veteran looks to revive his injury plagued career. Now let's take a look at the forecast. If your Cat is in trouble up a tree today, call me. It is amazing how much more powerful I feel just putting on this outfit. Are you laughing? You look hot. Those pants look quite sweaty. We are testing out the power between the cops and the firemen. This is wonder woman, she trains these fellows. How powerful are the police? They are very powerful. We have got it in the bag. Sally has three 2-year-old triplets and still manages to look this good. What is your life like at home? Busy. I go to work to rest. Cameron, the police or the firemen, who is better? It is the firemen. We will put it to the test with a tug-of-war after the forecast. in Cairns. Showers in Brisbane. Late rain in Sydney. 15 degrees in Canberra. Showers for Melbourne. Rainy in Hobart. Late rain in Adelaide. Showers in Perth. Mostly sunny in Darwin. Alice Springs, sunny and 23. Good luck. I am with the firemen. I know that Sam will be cheering for them. No cheating. Go! Poole, Pool! Pull! Pull! We are running out of time look at those muscles. A fireman when! Yes! -- the firemen win! The Queensland fire service is the most powerful servers in Queensland. We're going to continue this tour for the rest of the month, powering Australian smiles. Tomorrow is Sea World. Can I clean the teeth of a shark on live national television? Tune in tomorrow. We cannot wait. Once upon a time, Aussies were largely either dog or cat people. Now, easy access to a weird and wonderful variety of animals means the family pet can sometimes border on the bizarre. Increasing numbers of Australians are looking to broaden their home menageries much like Chandler and Joey in 'Friends'. I got you something. Open it! Open it! OK. It's a chicken. It's cute, huh? Do you guys know anything about chicks? Fowl? No. Women? No. Sunrise vet Rochelle Lowe is here in the studio. Rochelle, there's apparently a growing number of urban Aussies raising chickens. Some of my friends have the mobile chicken coupes. They have them in their backyard. They are becoming more popular. You can rent chicken's in Melbourne to see if they are for you. Dogs and Cats are not suitable for every family situation. I'm not sure that a chicken is actually a pet. It is not a companion. They are pretty easy to keep. Kids love them and are fascinated by them. They have these may -- amazing personalities. You get fresh eggs. There is a downside, I have an experience of having a turkey as a child. It was the saddest Christmas we're had. I was very attached to it. Some family get the chicken's to eat them. Ailey fresh eggs. Yes and you know they will -- you know they are healthy and where they come from. You need 60 centimetres of outdoor space per chicken and 40 centimetres of indoor space per chicken. Some people have them free ranging around the place. If you are precious about your garden, do not get chicken's. They will eat everything. They poop all over the yard but apart from that chickens are lovely. Getting to the more exotic, you're seeing a lot of less common pets coming through your clinic? are lovely. We tend to refer a snake is it and reptiles to experts but people are starting their own more and more snakes, lizards, frogs and turtles. Some people are keeping bees. You would not have a lap be, that is for sure. Turtles are easy to keep. We did have a turtle. Somebody dropped to 50 peace in our axolotl's tank and he died. You can set up your garden to attract animals or you can get hold of turtles from real local turtle society. But you must have a licence. They do not take up much space but you can't just stick them in a cage. Thank you for coming in. What was the animal that got skinned? An axolotl. It is a Mexican walking fish.

anyone can go through, it's been revealed dumping a friend may actually be harder than ending a romance. triggers much worse feelings of guilt even if your friendship has become toxic and destructive. Weekend Sunrise hit the streets to get your thoughts. Friendships are built on a lot of memories and time and situations and it is probably years and years of compounding stuff that you've built up together. So it is a lot harder. With friends you confide so much in them, I guess there is a part of you that worries they are going to tell people your secrets and there's that issue of trust - do you do that all over again? Having children is a time when you move on and have a different set of values and outlook on life, where you move on from other people. Life is just all about getting friends and getting new friends all the time as you move on through life. You can see it coming, you've got to be weary of it, and know that it's coming to an end and there's nothing you can do about it. Unfortunately your paths go different ways and that's it. Joining us now live from Charleston in the US is the author of 'When Friendship Hurts', sociologist Dr Jan Yager. Good morning. Friendships can become stressful and even damaging.

So why is it so hard to "un-friend"? Because people think that our friendship should last for ever even though people have given up the myth that unfortunately some marriages will not last forever but they cling to the idea that friends are for life. How do people manage to categorise friendship as something far more bonding than love? I do not think it is a question of either. For so many, unless they're in a long-standing romantic partnership, friendships can be from the age of three or five or 10. They can span a lifetime. There is nostalgia, childhood and so much in the culture. Look at sex in the city. There were huge parties at the debut of that movie, and they were always female friends. Would you agree that male friendships and female friendships are indifferent and need to be handled differently? It's not that they should be but that they are. Men had been trained not to do anything to derail their rise to the top. They let friendships fade. They don't go into details why they are dropping somebody. Unfortunately women tend to be a lot more emotional and they learned the hard way that telling somebody off can backfire. I can see that. How do you know that it is a good times to UN friend

somebody? There is really never a good time to end their friendship. It is a question of, do you have to ended because it is so toxic that you are... Your life is at stake? If it is just a question of something fading, sometimes it is best to just put it on the back- burner, say you are busy. Betrayal because of stepping over the line, cheating with someone's spouse or even wanting to do that, jealousy, backbiting when it comes to work related issues, those are really a deal breaker kinds of toxic things. It is an interesting kind of subject. Everybody can probably relate to. There is the book. I think it is not just about men's rise to the top that they do rise to the top that they do not confront other men. Traditionally if you are confronted another man he would pull out a sword and challenge you. The stakes were high. What are you talking about? How many times have you been challenged like that? I am talking traditionally. Coming up, Saturday's top showbiz news, including - is she serious? Speculation rages about Roseanne Barr's presidential announcement.
