He touched so many people, didn't he. Nick, in Melbourne, Victoria in particular but right around the country. How will Victorians be remembering him today, do you think? You know, it is You know, it is interesting. I am asked by people what was it Jim Stynes that helped people asked by people what was it about connect with him so traungly. I asked a lot of people in Melbourne that over the last week. It seems Jim embodies all of the virties you would want -- virtues you would want in a sportsman.

Federal Labor looks set to suffer the same fate as Queensland. Today's Newspoll shows the ALP's primary vote has fallen to 28%. The party received just 26.9% in Queensland. The Coalition's primary vote has climbed four points to 47%. But it's not all good news for Tony Abbott, he's still lagging behind Julia Gillard as preferred Prime Minister by three points. So, with Labor polling so poorly, some are asking why Tony Abbott is faring so badly. It is astonishing. Is it a case people don't like the Labor Party but they now think Julia Gillard is OK. Or is it they just think Tony Abbott is worse? They just don't like politicians. No matter who is leading what party, they just hate Labor more. Maybe. Or is now the time for Malcolm Turnbull or someone to put up their hand and romp it in. Do you think it is the time? A lot of people in the party would have to be thinking that. How can he be doing so badly when Labor is on the nose. doing so badly when Labor is on the nose.I he should be the golden child when Labor is slaying them in the polls. Who stands up? Joe, someone.

Also making news this morning - cycle rage. Internet vigilantes are hunting down a cyclist basher in Sydney. A car has apparently been driving the streets abusing and assaulting cyclists. The plates are covered with a cardboard sign that says "traffic" so police can't identify it. But now, cyclists are taking matters into their own hands. After the picture was posted to an online forum, more than 4,000 angry cyclists have teamed up But by forming a vigilante group are the cyclists just as bad as the driver? Yes, I am, that's right. Sounds like it could be the 2 old blokes from the 'Muppets' driving the car, Waldolf and Statler. Do you get a lycra-clad individual lantty group? You do what you do. As long as they are just taking a photo. Do you think we need to find a way to make everybody respect each other. Yes, and chill out! Someone has to give. We need to do something to make road users not peal peeved and cyclists feel like they are... Run feel like they are... Run over. You had a campaign yesterday against cyclists wearing head sets. I just wonder how people run and ride with head sets. I have had someone actually running in front of my car running in front of my car they had their head set on and it is running in front of my car because oblivious and they worry me. Also making news - life in the '60s meets the internet. The National Film and Sound Archive has posted documentaries from 50 years ago on YouTube. They show a time when family life was simple, shopping centres were new, young women worked until they got married and factories were a man's domain. Despite the old-fashion values, they were also the swinging '60s. So, Kochie, was it really better back then? Absolutely!

It's also extended its 2-party preferred lead over Labor, 57% to 43%. As for who would make the better Prime Minister, Ms Gillard is ahead by three points. Actor Matthew Newton is expected in a Sydney court today over his alleged scuffle with a taxidriver. The 35-year-old missed his first court appearance earlier this year after his lawyer argued he wasn't mentally fit enough to deal with the hearing. Newton is accused of punching the cab driver in the head last December. He's been charged with two counts of assault. Australia's elite police force has reportedly sacked more than 12 officers for serious misconduct offences over the past 18 months.

The 2-day summit is aimed at curbing Alex Hart is in South Korea. Seven News political reporter the issue of nuclear terrorism? Alex, how are leaders tackling Good morning, Nat. Well the best way to tackle this problem is to rid the world of nuclear weapons. That is certainly what some of the leaders attending this summit ultimately want to achieve, including US President President Obama and Prime Minister, Julia Gillard. Now President President Obama and our they admit that goal is still a long way off but there are some measure that countries can put in place to take steps in the right One of them is to reduce the amounts take steps in the right direction. of nuclear material stored around the world, especially highly enriched uranium, which is terrorists want to get their hands enriched uranium, which is what on to make nuclear weapons. Another thing they can do is ensure the nuclear material is stored as safely as possible. There is another Julia Gillard wants to address when as possible. There is another issue she speaks at this summit later she speaks at this summit later today

today and that is discourage countries who are thinking about embracing nuclear technology their energy needs from going down embracing nuclear technology for the path so there is less nuclear material being created. That is relevant for our region given countries like Indonesian, Thailand and the Philippines are looking at going down that path. Julia Gillard will address the crowd later today. We expect mine minor announcements to make sure Australia stays right up there in terms of how well we store our nuclear material, Nat. Thank you very much. A new report has revealed Australians trust the most. the companies the top brands of the future Google, Apple and IKEA were among and Kodak have all lost trust while Qantas, Dairy Farmers over the past five years. appear to be losing faith So why do Australians in the more traditional brands. is here. Advertising expert Jane Caro A lot more modern companies top brands of the future. make the list of Australia's to win our trust? What are they doing I think it takes a number of things. I think one of them is that it takes a real clarity of message and something that is coherent and congruent about what you promise and what you deliver. That's the you can see in the list of the top what you deliver. That's the thing companies, the ones we feel really positive about. Firstly, they are very new but following through what they promise to give you. very new but following through on Things like Things like would

Things like waog waog. Things like Wii, what they say they give you you get. When companies feel confident about their future and not twisting and turning and trying to please us but a real sense they know where they are going, we sense that. Brands are like people. When you meet someone who is clear about who they are, they say what they mean and confident about the future, you feel they are trusty, so it is with a brand. We get cheesed off when they underestimate our intelligence. We can pick a fake and know when something is not right. A number of companies have lost our Qantas, Dairy Farmers, Kodak, why? companies have lost our trust, Those and the others on the list are struggling with a new way of doing business, a new way of selling things. Difficulties for Qantas, the Qantas lack of trust is obvious. You don't ground an airline with no warning and expect it to have no impact on your brand, obviously it will have an impact on the brand and that is ongoing. A lot of the other companies haven't necessarily done anything overtly bad, they are from the past. They have lost their anything overtly bad, they are just reason for being in a way and they haven't adapted. They haven't managed to take on the future and move forward and change pace. Nostalgia doesn't count? I would have thought something nostalgic, we were talking about life in the '60s and that romantic notion? Not if you are selling a service or product. If you buy something, you don't want to buy something that used to be good. You want to buy something that is good now because you are parting with your money. They haven't imparted still good, still current, still got something to offer. We can

kind of see they are floundering and trying to please us. That does not make us trus anyone, a human being, politician, a brands, if we think they are twisting they are twist and turning to get our approval, we go, " our approval, we go, "I don't trust you anymore." And that is to the brands. Wow, I guess that is you anymore." And that is happening reflected in politics but that is a conversation for another day. Thank you. Yes. You are right, Jane, how would she rebrand our politicians? We got to get her back We got to get her back to talk about that, everyone hates them. So why do Australians appear to be losing faith in the more traditional brands? A 17-year-old is being dubbed the new Susan Boyle after auditioning for this season's 'Britain's Got Talent'.

There in lies the rub, the judges back ped lds, they said Charlotte might be a dead weight but as a package it would work, you have got the pop and opera. Whether Charlotte goes remains to be seen. As about the shows, it is always about the narrative. If it suits Simon for her ootoo go later to get bums on seats, Charlotte will be sent packing. He owns the show that manipulates all of this. But also, he had an unwelcome visitor to his home over the weekend? What happened there? He did. It is something Simon Cowell, a master of the game there? He did.

Moving on, and Rob Kardashian's in trouble with the police. Is there a boy in that family? Well, he is a boy this season. We'll see how things play out. He was down in South beach Miami. He was in Miami, cameras always follow them, weather they want them or not. He saw a paparazzo taking pictures and he chased after them and the o got scared and started screaming. There were a couple of off-duty cops and they detained him in the back of the car. He was having fun and trying to punk him. He wasn't going to attack the photographer. I can't imagine a Kardashian who would seriously turn away a photographer. Good point. It just so happen there was a video camera there as well.

Three teenagers are lucky to be alive after their hot-air balloon crashed into powerlines in England. The 18-year-old pilot and his two passengers were stuck in the basket for five hours as emergency crews waited for the electricity to be switched off. Lucky, very lucky. I'm just glad everybody managed to get away OK. Obviously, all this is damaged but, you know, it's replaceable. The trio escaped with only minor burns. A collection of Princess Diana's most famous frocks have gone on display in Kensington Palace. Hundreds of people queued at the late royal's home to catch a glimpse of cocktail dresses and formal gowns. I'm looking forward to seeing the Princess Diana clothing. The exhibition marks the end of a multimillion-dollar palace makeover as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge prepare to move in. Coming up - is he still laughing now? Shock jock Kyle Sandilands learns his fate over that on-air rant against a female journalist. But first here's Kochie. Finance news now. Wall Street is closing well up. closing well up. Around 160 points. Finance news now. Wall Street is That's because of some talk out of Europe that the financial institutions and regulators are building a firewall, another financial firewall around the countries in debt problems there. Also, Ben Bernanke, the boss of the Fed indicating he will keep interest rates low. To our region, a fairly lackluster day. Down 5 and 7 points. Of course, Jetstar and Qantas launching a joint venture into Asia through Hong Kong with chine Eastern Airlines. Airlines is a really tough business to get going. I just charted quants Qantas' share price against United and Ryan Air out of Europe, the low-cost carriers like Ryan Air are leading the market. That is why Qantas have mutt put so much into Jetstar, they need to reengineer their cost base. Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Wests Tigers coach Tim Sheens is refusing to hit the panic button despite last night's shock loss to Canberra at Campbelltown Stadium. The former premiership favourites have now lost three straight matches but the Tigers are confident they can turn it around. We've been in these positions before and we've been criticised, you know, by everybody and sundry and we've fought our way out of it. You know, to get through and over times when they're tough you've got to be close as a team, and we're very close. Terry Campese starred for the Raiders in his 100th NRL appearance. NAB Cup champions the Crows look set to be without All-Australian defender Ben Rutten in round one against Gold Coast.

An Asian Champions League clash in Korea is sandwiched in between the matches against Central Coast. There we go. Not too much Port Adelaide news. I would have thought Port players would be tough enough. A broken finger? You talk about practising with bricks. It is not a normal one, it is a severe one. it was just normal. He had his normal one, it is a severe one. If finger next to his femur, the finger broke first and then the femur. And Chad Cornes. Let's go to Grant. Good morning, it is the beach at Bondi.

As we've been reporting, the latest Newspoll confirms the Gillard Government isn't immune to the electoral disaster suffered by Labor in Queensland. Federal Labor's primary support has slipped 3 points in the past fortnight to 28%. The Coalition's gained 4 to 47%. For more we're joined by Seven News political reporter Mia Greves. Mia, 28% support is just higher than what Labor recorded in the Queensland election, isn't it? It sure is. And after the defeat on the weekend this new poll taken shows that, on the weekend, shows that the party's national support has plunged close to a record low, dropping 3 point to 28% dropping 3 point to 28%. Now, Prime Minister would be waking up to this news in South Korea this dropping 3 point to 28%. Now, the

morning. And I can't imagine she'd be thrilled or overly surprise but as you as youed earlier it does show federal Labor is not immune to what happened in Queensland on the weekend. For the most part the Queensland election was fought on local issues but former Peter Beattie said the party needs to shift focus or it will face a local issues but former premier

similar annihilation in next year's federal election. The thing we find staggering, we were chattering early this morning not good news for the coalition, it seems surprising given everything that has happened to Labor? It is interesting, despite the figures showing the coalition would win the next election and win it comfortably, this poll it comfortably, this poll shows Julia Gillard is still the Julia Gillard is still the preferred Prime Julia Gillard is still the preferred Prime Minister. 3 points ahead Tony Abbott and her popularty has gone up. So it is certainly going to Prime Minister. 3 points ahead of

make for a very interesting year in Canberra on both sides of politics. Certainly will, thank you very much, Mia. Good to talk to you. Here is Kochie Melbourne is expected to come to a standstill this morning as the city farewells AFL legend Jim Stynes. A state funeral will be held at St Paul's Cathedral And thousands of mourners will also watch the service on big screens at Federation Square. The 45-year-old died last week after a long battle with cancer. He's survived by his wife, Sam, and their two young children. Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells joins me now from Melbourne. Nick, a big turnout is expected this morning. A big turn out expected this morning. It is now, what? 7:15 in the morning. The funeral dozen start until 11:00, already people have started to come to Fed Square with their Melbourne Demons hats and scarves. I heard a gentleman behind the camera say he has come from Ballarat for this ceremony today. They are expecting 1200 people inside the church. There will be a lot more people in Melbourne who want to come and pay respect. It will be telecast on the big screen and fedryeration square where thousands of mourners will come and witness the ceremony. The streets here, St Kilda Road and flinters Street have been largely closed off and after the funeral procession, it will make its way down Flinders Street to the MCG. Just explain for interstaters, most would known Jim Stynes as an AFL legend but he is so much more, particularly to Victorians, isn't he. Put his life in perspective for those who, if you like, have only ever seen him as AFL footy player? Yes, it is interesting because he wasn't the like, have only ever seen him as an

most famous AFL player. All the famous admin -- or the famous administrator of football. has been as loved as Jim Stynes in the football field and I think it administrator of football. No-one

has a lot to do with what he represents. He represents what you can become in Australia if you dig in. 17 years old he came out here and rose to the heights of AFL, became one of the toughest footballers in Australia, won Brownlow Medal. Started his own footballers in Australia, won the charity for youth, a fantastic father and a fantastic husband and so brave through the fight with cancer. I think Melbourne and a lot of people in Australia just fell in love with him. Absolutely. It is going to be a big day as Melbourne commemorates the life of Jim Stynes. Thank you, Nick, we will check in with you a bit later. It's judgment day for Kyle Sandilands. The country's media watchdog into his on-air rant against a female journalist. The shockjock caused outrage last year when he attacked the reporter for criticising his new TV show. Sandilands says he's not too bothered by the investigation. Showbiz reporter Peter Ford has more. Peter, good morning. What sort of penalties is he facing. And could this potentially be the end of his career? Well, I don't know it is going to affect his career, Nat, in some ways it really only builds upon his whole bad-boy image. For the network, there is a whole range of options. But from my information in the network they are grateful the day has come. They wim be able to say ACMA have handed down their findingsx let's draw a line under it, come back to us, sponsors. They have lost a lot of money have lost a lot of money from advertisers and sponsors who have walked. So they can close chapter. The believe is if they lay walked. So they can close the down something too severe they may appeal it so it might not be over in that sense. His on air partner, Jackie O'Has copped flack for not speaking out before but she has spoken out in the last few days? She has explained the situation, she is on there with him. What is she meant to do. She said she wasn't laughing at what he was saying to the journalist but she was laughing at how sensitive he was and laughing about how ridiculous it was. She said everything was getting stuck into him, I am his on' air partner, why wouldn't I give him support. has been honest about it. Thank you, why wouldn't I give him support. She we will see today today. One of Hollywood's best-known directors has made history. James Cameron has reached the deepest point on earth in a solo submarine. It's part of his latest project alongside some of Australia's top marine experts. In the Pacific Ocean the Mariana Trench is the most mysterious and deepest place in the world. This is James Cameron, more than 11km below the surface. The 57-year-old already has 72 dives under his belt including 12 when he filmed 'Titanic'. But this research expedition is equivalent to landing the first human on the moon. The submarine was built and tested on Australian soil. Some of our best engineers worked on this mission for years. They even helped him tweet from below the sea. Inside, his control room is smaller than a phone booth. And he could barely move for over nine hours. Rigorous physical training was needed to deal with the cold conditions. And he took up yoga to improve his flexibility. But it was all worth it. Man, this is a long way down. When you go past 'Titanic' and then you go past 'Bismarck' and then you go past where the 'MIRS' can go and then you're still only halfway there, two-thirds of the way there. Man, it's a heck of a ride. Cameron is now the first person to complete the journey solo. Phil Durbin was one of the engineers for the submarine and James Cameron's engineering advisor. Phil, good morning. This is really incredible. I know For you working on it it was very deep, and very dangerous. Six years you worked on this. What did you have to think of when putting together this submarine? Well, our company is responsible for the sphere he sits in and the big green part of the submarine you see? All the foam and buoyancy that brings him back to the surface. In thinking of that, there are a huge number of engineering challenges and front ears to push through -- frontiers to push through. It is quite responsibility thinking you have got a man's life on the line, all the way to the bottom of the ocean. So a lot of sleepless nights you might say, a huge amount of work. What are some of the intricacies? I was reading the pressure at the bottom was enormous like four vehicles on your big toe? Immense. The pressure on the bottom of the ocean is 1100 times what it is on land. It is absolutely crushing. All the materials of construction, all the special steels and plastics are really pushed to the limit. There is a good reason that people don't go there that often. It is a very hard place to get to. It is a huge engineering challenge. So not only an engineering challenge for you build it but a physical challenge for James Cameron himself. We an engineering challenge for you to

said he did yoga to fit in the little area and run every day to be for James Cameron himself. We just

physically fit. So a big impact on him and his body? I can only imagine he felt really cramped inside there. It is a very tight space. You sit with your legs up sort of drawn right up against you. It is a phenomenal effort to keep in such a small space for such a long period of time. I can't wait to see. He was collecting samples as part of the 'National Geographic' expedition. Thank you. Thanks very much. Imagine if they found a monster in the deep, something that lurks 10 kays down. Going down, it is a kilometre higher than Everest is going up. That is how deep the trench is. Pretty extraordinary. Absolutely what he did and what they did to get him there and keep him safe. We have been talking about cycle rage this morning. Internet vigilantes are hunting down a cyclist basher in Sydney. A car has apparently been driving the streets abusing and assaulting cyclists. The plates are covered with a cardboard sign that says "Traffic", But now, cyclists are taking matters into their own hands. After the picture was posted to an online forum, more than 4,000 angry cyclists have teamed up to track down the offender. But by forming a vigilante group, are the cyclists just as bad as the driver? Now, they are not going to be, Beretts, you have assured us, they are not going to be physical with the driver. I wouldn't imagine so. Snapping and finding out where he is? I think that is the is? I think that is the idea. As Mel said, everyone needs to calm down. They are as extreme as each other. There are extremists on the cars and the bikes, relax, it is just the road. There are no extremists on bikes? No more than there are in vehicles. Goly, let's move on. We are all being very diplomatic. Big news this morning is the Victorian mum almost paralysed by a sneeze. After Monique Jeffrey let out a huge 'ah-choo' she suddenly found she couldn't move. She had her phone in her hand, so she texted her husband for help. He took her to hospital where they discovered she'd dislocated two vertebrae in her neck. This type of injury is usually only seen in trauma patients. Monique now has to wear a halo traction and will have rehabilitation. That is some sneeze. Jeepers. I thought yours were bad. I speez all day. thought yours were bad. I speez all day.I you must have a very flexible neck. A strong spine. Dad has a friend, many years ago, she was leaning over making a bed, and sneezed and put her back out and sneezed and put her back out and was in sneezed and put her back out and was in traction in a very bad way for a long time.

Thousands of mourners are expected to attend the service at St Paul's Cathedral. Fans will be able to pay their respects at Federation Square with the funeral to be broadcast on a big screen. Stynes died at his St Kilda home last week after a 2.5 year battle with cancer. His funeral is expected to be one of largest ever held in Melbourne. The latest opinion poll shows the Gillard Government isn't immune Federal Labor's primary support has dropped 3% in the past 2 weeks. The Coalition has gained ground, its primary vote climbing 4 points to 47%. It's also extended its 2-party preferred lead over Labor, 57% to 43%. But former Queensland premier Peter Beattie believes Julia Gillard can still win the next election. What it requires is 17 months of commitment, it requires regular visits here, considerable time demonstrating the financial benefits demonstrating the financial benefits that come to Queensland. There is some good news for Labor - voter satisfaction for Julia Gillard jumped three points. An elderly man has been taken to hospital after a violent car-jacking on the Gold Coast overnight. The 79-year-old was kicked and punched before three men stole his white Honda Accord. Police believe the offenders are also responsible for stealing another car in Nerang and setting it on fire. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. Actor Matthew Newton is expected in a Sydney court today over his alleged scuffle with a taxidriver. The 35-year-old missed his first court appearance earlier this year after his lawyer argued he wasn't mentally fit enough to deal with the hearing. Newton is accused of punching the cab driver in the head last December. He's been charged with two counts of assault. Time for finance now.

Richmond has re-signed Brett Deledio for a further five years, virtually ensuring the gun midfielder will be a Tiger for life. Deledio's commitment to the Tigers provides a massive boost heading into Thursday night's showdown with Carlton at the MCG. The Blues have dismissed talk that Chris Judd still has shoulder problems. I don't know where you're getting that information from. It's the first I've heard of it. An ankle injury has Collingwood skipper Nick Maxwell is in serious doubt for Friday's night's blockbuster against Hawthorn and the Western Bulldogs have lost Ryan Griffen to a broken finger for Sunday's clash against West Coast. Wests Tigers are languishing in second last on the NRL ladder after going down to Canberra 30-16 at Campbelltown Stadium last night. The Tigers missed a whopping 48 tackles and the Raiders cashed in - Jarrod Croker bagged a double and Terry Campese led from the front in his 100th NRL match. Tigers centre Chris Lawrence was placed on report for a dangerous tackle. Bernard Tomic has denied claims he has fallen out with his father, John after the pair clashed at the Miami Open. Tomic asked the chair umpire to eject his father from the stands during his loss to Spaniard David Ferrer. He's annoying me. I know he's my father but he's annoying me, I want him to leave How is it possible? If you tell him to leave? It's not going to happen. Tomic says he wanted his father to go re-string his racquets.
