A couple of things to tell you. you. Spain actually filled a bond points. A couple of things to tell auction, which is terrific. They needed to raise more money. They had to pay a pretty fancy price, about 6% on the bond yield. Also, Ben Bernanke, the world's most powerful central banker has been talking to politicians saying he is ready for further stimulus of the US economy, to jump in and help but not stipulating how he is going to do it. Let's go to our region. We had a pretty good day up 52 and 53 or I should say should say $ should say $16 billion was wiped on pretty good day up 52 and 53 or I the market, usually people say off the market but it was wiped on the market, which is good. The good news keeps on coming by nearly 40,000 in May. for jobs as employment figures rose Savanth Sebastien, has this been a purple patch for economic news here in Australia this week? It has been very, very encouraging. If for there is one thing this economy has been missing is confidence. If you look at this weekend it is the turn around in confidence we around in confidence we needed. We around in confidence we needed. Rate cuts, strong jobs growth and ineconomic numbers which were phenomenal. You add that together and if there was a catalyst of a turn around in confidence it is now. Over the past three months, almost 90,000 additionling people have found jobs, that means an additional 90,000 people have got incomes which will add to spend power in the economy. It doesn't mean the Reserve Bank will step back from rate cuts, that depends on what is taking place overseas but it means the labour market is looking strong. We hear about the high-profile job losses but there are businesses out there hanging on to staff and looking hire more staff. Good news. And hanging on to staff and looking to Beretts, Vodafone has pulled its sponsorship of cricket and V8s. Yes a big day in the sporting world. They will be without until 2013 and then V8 is out. So a couple of big holes to fill in the sporting landscape. is over for another year Samantha Stosur's French Open dream to Italian Sara Errani. after a 3-sets loss After losing a tight first set, to easily take the second Stosur fought back in the decider, but she couldn't keep it going losing 7-5, 1-6, 6-3. for Australia's Sam Stosur. COMMENTATOR: Disappointment I just didn't do enough, really, that it happened here today. and it just sucks You bet it did. Maria Sharapova is the new world number one after thumping Petra Kvitova, 6-3, 6-3. She'll start a heavy favourite against Errani in the final. Carlton will be out to get its faltering AFL premiership campaign back on track in tonight's blockbuster against reigning premier Geelong. The Blues welcome back Matthew Kreuzer, Lachie Henderson and Nick Duigan. But the Cats have four of their own high-profile inclusions, headed by Tom Hawkins and Joel Corey. All the action is on Seven and 7mate. Queensland forward Dave Taylor is in no danger of missing Origin II next week despite injuring himself by falling out of bed. Nasty injury. No! Yes, serious. Matt Scott is a certain starter despite spending time away from the squad to be with his sick mother. In the NRL, Wests Tigers will be gunning for their seventh straight win in tonight's clash against an under-strength Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park. Sally Pearson has set a new meeting record for the 100m hurdles at the Diamond League meeting in Oslo this morning. COMMENTATOR: This is a very good run by Pearson, Pearson's gonna get this. 12.49! That is terrifically quick. The run was Pearson's first in Europe this season and bodes well for her London Olympic campaign. She's just pulling the cork out of the top of the bottle. 50 days away, how good is she going? Is Isn't she! She really had to finish that with that other girl coming up. Blitzed them. Good comment. I could see her coming up. Eight of them trying to chase her. I reckon Bruce McAvaney would have heard that and be feeling nervous for the next contract. Watch out, Bruce, I'm on your tail. Must be races time? What? Or a job interview. What? A man is not out, Bruce, I'm on your tail. Woohh!

A massive local event, a huge one where everybody will turn out to celebrate, which is why I put the bag of fruit on this morning, as opposed to the silks which I am sure you will take great pleasure at joking at throughout the day.

Two of our Olympic swimmers arrive home shortly from the US in disgrace. Nick D'Arcy and Kenrick Monk have found themselves under fire after a photo of them posing with guns was posted on Facebook. It's triggered calls for them to be axed from the Olympic team. Swimming Australia says it doesn't condone the posting of inappropriate content on Facebook, Twitter or any social media platform. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper is at Brisbane Airport. Good morning. Michelle, when are they due to arrive? How many young Aussie blokes have been to America, seen a gun shot and posed like that thinking like they are Bruce Willis in 'Die Hard'. Is it a mountain out of a mole hill? I don't know if I am experienced enough to comment on that. Have you done it in the States? Both boys are due to arrive home in 15 minutes. They are not cept back early. They are coming back with the rest of the Olympic team competing in California. They have been told to take the postings down immediately. They have released a statement saying the postings are foolish for any member of the team. Is it worse because we know them and they have been in hot water before? I think absolutely. Both of them are considered the 'Bad boys' of swimming. Particularly Nick D'Arcy. He first came to our attention in 2008 when he bashed his Simon Cowelly breaking his nose, jaw and cheek bone and declared 2008 when he bashed his team-mate

bankruptcy when the court ordered him to pay compensation and Monk caused outrage when he lied to police, he said a P-plater had knocked him off his bike causing him to break his elbow in two places, after an exhausting hunt for the P-plater, Monk confessed he lied had been on his skate' board. That makes it worse. They don't have a P-plater, Monk confessed he lied and

great track record. There are calls for them to be ousted. I think it is unlikely considering the Olympics is less than two months away but Swimming Australia said they will

investigate. Not foring their history, if Michael Diamond, the shooting was with them, would it be unacceptable. Tell me if I am grumpy. Anyone who has had son aged 18 to 25. When you were 18 to 25. Blokes. You do exactly the Come on. Tell us what you think. Blokes. You do exactly the same. do get very angry, very quickly now. Come on. Tell us what you think. We Coming up - the woman told she's too old to find love at 38. Can you believe it? Plus, Anzac outrage. The diggers' descendants who may not get to mark the centenary of Gallipoli.

MAN: (SINGS) # Oh, oh-oh... # (TOYOTA THEME PLAYS) by Beacon Lighting's stocktake sale. With some items less than half price, get in bright and early. Shop online or in store now. Also making news - a proposal for a lottery to choose who'll be able to attend the commemoration of the centenary of Gallipoli in 2015. The ballot's being considered because of the restriction on the numbers that can attend the dawn service. There are only 10,500. The RSL's South Australian president, Jock Statton, is against the idea. He's concerned the relatives of the Australians who died on the Gallipoli Peninsula will miss out on attending such an important anniversary. So, is a lottery fair or should descendants get first option? They should be invited first. What is left over should go in a lottery. Yes, I think that's is good. Have an allocation for family members. Because it is a tiny area there. It just gets swamped on Anzac Day. You have just been? Yes, we were there three days before Anzac Day this year. I was really surprised how small the area is. Right. Only 10,000 people or something? 10,000 people or something?? Yes, 10,500. You might have seen those warning signs in supermarkets about the danger of slipping on grapes. I haven't personally but apparently they are. Well, a Brisbane legal eagle doesn't think that's enough. Injury compensation lawyer Mark O'Connor is suggesting they should be banned from sale or at least come in sealed bags. Mr O'Connor says that would prevent customers from slipping on fallen grapes. So, is he right? Should grapes be banned from supermarkets? Yes, ban grapes. It would also prevent us from doing the taste test. No, don't do that. But you can't have a naked banana because of slipping on a buconnuskin if it falls on the ground. Or the plum Or which cherries. Let's get rid of fresh fruit. Stupid lawyer. Or perhaps a perhaps a vending machine behind the glass door. I spend a lot of time in the grocery store. A few years ago, when I was in the fruit and vegetable section, there was no danger. Rachel forced you. We have no time. We better go. That is a big decision you made, I hope you consulted. And the weather for the weekend. You're watching Sunrise on the Seven Network.

Those shorts. Sarah, much too young to own a parachute suit. Yes, way too cool. Controversial swimmers Nick D'Arcy and Kenrick Monk will arrive home this morning after posing with firearms in an American gun shop. The photo was taken in California where the swimmers have been competing at a pre-Olympic event. It was posted on Monk's Facebook page and circulated on Twitter. We don't want that gun culture here in Australia and we don't want Olympians promoting it here in Australia. The photo has since been removed. The flood crisis gripping Victoria is beginning to ease but hundreds of properties in the Gippsland region remain affected. A high tide at Lakes Entrance overnight has failed to result in any significant flooding. Emergency crews will be out today assessing damage in the nearby towns of Paynesville, Eagle Point, Metung and Raymond Island. Local operators are hoping tourists won't stay away over the long weekend, saying the region is still open for business. Residents in Perth's north will begin cleaning up today after a tornado uprooted trees and downed powerlines. Winds of up to 100km/h were recorded in Dianella and Morley.

Saying he is prepared to step in with further stimulus if the American economy is basically attacked by the woes out of Europe. But he is not saying he will do. Spain had a debt auction, a bond auction which they filled, which is good, had to pay 6% auction which they successfully on the yield. Yesterday, in our region $

A political debate on Greek television has turned ugly after a politician attacked one of his rivals live on air. The spokesmen from the far-right party Golden Dawn threw a glass of water at a female MP during the argument. He then slapped the deputy leader of Greece's Communist Party, hitting her three times. Producers locked him in a room after the altercation but he broke down the door and escaped. No wonder the country is falling apart. Look at that. That's terrible. Things had tense. She said she is not laying any charges. She said the Greek people will decide at the polls. But that is not a push and a shove. Full on argy bargey. Remember, the last elections they couldn't form a government so they've gone back for a second time to have an lection to decide whether they basically stay in euro or not. It all haichgs. On -- it had hinges on them running the country. So the world's political climate is governed by geese like that. Going beautifully. Makes our politicians look good. Maybe going a bit far but here is sport. Queensland prop Matt Scott's a certain starter for Origin II in Sydney next week after spending time with his seriously ill mother in Central Queensland.

There's increasing pressure on the big banks to cut interest rates with credit unions set to give them a run for their money. Credit Union Australia has already announced an interest rate 1% lower than the big four. The ANZ meets today to discuss its response to the Reserve Bank's decision. All the Aother banks with waiting to see what they decide. Michael Pascoe is from Fairfax Media's 'BusinessDay'. Good morning. Are you surprised that three days on we haven't heard a word from the big four? Are they playing games and saying to the ANZ, you said you the ANZ, you said you'll go on the second Friday of every month, we'll wait for you. There is a lot of that happening but we are getting used to it. It does take a couple of days to hold their meetings and guess and toss a coin and things that are deeply scientific. It is a marketing position. NAB went first because it knew it could have the 6. knew it could have the 6.99% knew it could have the 6.99%. This time it is harder. I think the others will wait to see what the ANZ does and take a setting from there. They are unlikely to pass the whole lot on. This excuse, the cost of our funding from overseas has gone up, da, da, da, are they right? It not the cost of the funding from overseas, yes, it is up. But it the cost of funding from home. There is abuttal to get the depositors' in the door and it is keeping the abuttal to get the depositors' funds money more expensive than they would like it to be. The international setup, is a little nervous to the least. I don't think they are tell agbig fib to gouge profits. setup, is a little nervous to say

They want to maintain profit which is why we probably get 20 of the 25. Thank you. Pleasure. Buying tickets for concerts and sporting events can be expensive enough but hidden fees on ticketing websites are making them even more costly. So should operators be more upfront? It's probably not fair that they are hidden at the end but I think you just expect that these days. It would be far better if they were much more upfront about it. I think that's what they need to do. They need to let people know in advance. They should really clearly state that in their ticket price, say that it's exclusive of that charge really. If they mention it to you before buying the ticket I think it's fair, it's obviously within their business model. But if they mention it after it is a bit of a bad blow to the guts. Well it's a rip-off, they're getting paid extra money for doing nothing. Consumer group Choice has looked into the matter and found that market leaders Ticketek and Ticketmaster are charging people fees that are often excessive and unjustified. I'm joined now by Choice spokesperson Ingrid Just. Good morning. Ingrid, what goes into the price of a ticket? $7.60 for e-mailing the ticket as an atap tachment. It is ridiculous. It is a ticket that is being e-mailed to you. You have to print it off and of course, take it into the venue. But think about this too. If you want the ticket sent to you by registered post from one of these agencies, it is up to $ agencies, it is up to $11 for that. But agencies, it is up to $11 for that. agencies, it is up to $11 for that.But Australia Post charges around Dr 3. You can see -- $ around Dr 3. You can see -- $3. You can see whether it is reflecting the true cost of processing that transaction. To pick up your ticket from a venue it can cost you up to $ $8. What can people do? It is from a venue it can cost you up to advertised on there. It dozen make it right. We are calling on the ticket agencies to put the fees up front. But they should be reflecting the true and real cost of actually processing the transaction or administrating that particular process. We've seen handling fees, administration fees, transaction fees, credit card surcharges and often they come at the end of the purchasing process. We need them up front. So maybe if we make a fuss about it, things might change. Thanks, Thanks, here is Kochie. Time to have a look at the long weekend of sport. I'm joined by Channel 7 AFL commentator Tim Watson and our very own Mark Beretta. Tonight's AFL match sees Carlton taking on the old codgers at Geelong. Steady up! Both of which have failed to live up to expectations this season. Timmy, the loser faces a big battle for the rest of the season. This is a massive game. It's one of those 8-point games tonight at Etihad Stadium. Carlton, I don't know if you've caught up with this, Carlton have been the talk of the week. Eddie McGuire went on radio and he was asked a question about whether or not they consider Mick Malthouse as a replacement for Brett Ratten and that set everything ablaze down here in Melbourne. So, Carlton came out and defended their coach. But the real interesting thing is the Carlton Blues are really angry about the way their team's been playing and in particular about their coach as well. Brett Ratten had to defend himself again this week and he's now promised that Carlton will play some bold football. They've got some real key injuries to their team which has decimated them in parts of the ground. But I'm expecting them to give one really big last effort tonight against Geelong, who aren't going that well themselves but they've got some really big inclusions back in their team. They've been under the radar, Tim, no doubt about that, the Cats this week. Exactly, and Carlton were just beaten by a better team last week. To Rugby League now, and the Tigers are favourites to beat the Storm tonight. Look, it will be interesting for sure. Melbourne Storm have been the leaders of the competition so far this year. They're playing beautifully, but they lose three big guns to State of Origin. Take out Billy Slater, take out Cooper Cronk and take out Cam Smith. The West Tigers have lost Robbie Farah to Blues' duties. It just changes the whole playing field. The run of the Melbourne Storm at home has been fantastic. West Tigers in nine attempts haven't won down at AAMI Stadium so it's a big ask for them. Look, I think the same as our AFL match tonight - it's going to be an arm wrestle. I'll be tipping the Storm. Alright, and the disappointing news overnight - Sam Stosur's been beaten in the semifinals of the French Tennis Open. Tim, it is disappointing because we thought it was opening up for her, didn't we? Yeah, everything was going beautifully for Sam Stosur. There's no question about that. I thought she'd actually find her way into the final as well. She was hitting the ball as well as she's hit the ball in a long, long time, so that is really disappointing for her. Wheels falling off in the semis - tough. I mean, she's played Sara Errani, the Italian girl six times and only lost once, which was last night. Sad for Sam because she's been to the final. She really wants to get a French Open title. All she has to do is get past that semi which is probably her easiest match so far in the competition. Alright, guys. Thank you for that. Timmy, good calling tonight. Big day for you. What a cracker! Have a good one, Tim. Cheers. Here's Nat. News is next. Then, in hot water again. The fallout for swim stars Nick D'Arcy and Kendrick Monk as they arrive home to face the gun photo scandal.

And Charlie Sheen's at it again. The 'Anger Management' star blew up at a security guard? Yes, the Staple Centre have a strict exit, no reenter policy so when he went out for a cigarette during the LA Kings king they wouldn't let him in. He literally went insane, check out his rant. You know what? (Beep) out his rant. You know what? (Beep), my balls, alright, (beep) my balls, alright, (beep) it is commonsense, common courtesy to have gone inside. gone inside. Let a guy back in a door he just walked out of. You can't smoke inside. It is not about smoking it is about commonsense, all I'm saying. It is a perfect case of art imitating life since he is getting ready to start a show called 'Anger Management'. Perhaps it is a publicity stunt. Not a very good one. Everyone has a video camera now days. And Carrie Underwood sparkled at the Country Music Awards. She won two at the CMTV awards, she won video of the year for 'Girl Girl' coming off the heels of being the first country artist to have four artistings debuting at No.1. four artistings debuting at No.1 she is the most successful American Idol to date. Looking gorgeous too. Yes, looking very good. The Aussie swimmers and the photo that could see them cut from the Olympics. This morning, sport's bad boys fly home to face the music. Why diggers' descendants may be shut out of centenary commemorations. The massive clean-up after a twister tears through Perth. I was really confused. Like, I didn't get why I was wearing a mask.

(SONG) # Reach out for the sunrise # Reach out for the sunrise. # This is Sunrise on Seven. Now live from Brekky Central, Kochie and Nat. Also today - how old is too old to find love? One dating agency says 38 is too old. They turned away a customer for that reason. We'll meet her later. But let us know, did you find love later in life? Sounds ridiculous, But at 7:00am, let's get the latest news from Sarah Cumming. Gold medal hopefuls Nick D'Arcy and Kenrick Monk will arrive home to a storm of controversy today after posting a controversial photo online. The picture of the pair posing with guns in the US, just days ago, has angered Olympic sponsors and the anti-gun lobby. Both Nick D'Arcy and Kenrick Monk have faced controversies before and both are now back in hot water. The pair posed with shotguns and pistols in a gun shop in America The photo was then posted on Monk's Facebook page and circulated on Twitter. Well, I hope the sponsors say, "Look, you've been stupid, it's an idiotic photo". Swimming Australia ordered the pair to remove the controversial photo. The Australian Olympic Committee has also weighed in, saying the photo is foolish and inappropriate. We don't want that gun culture promoting it here in Australia. and we don't want Olympians The AOC says the incident serves as a warning to all athletes heading to London, reminding them not to post anything online that they wouldn't share with their mother or grandmother. Both swimmers have been in hot water before - Monk lied to police about how he broke his elbow after falling off his skateboard while D'Arcy was convicted of assaulting Simon Cowley in 2008 and kicked off the Australian team. Without any doubt, he should not be going anywhere representing Australia. Both D'Arcy and Monk are due home from the US this morning and will face officials from Swimming Australia. Pippa Savage's appeal hearing for reinstatement into Australia's Olympic rowing team will continue today. The 31-year-old appeared before the tribunal in Melbourne last night. For all the latest I'm joined by Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells. Good morning, Nick. How long will it take for a decision to be made on Savage's future? Well, Sarah, this hearing has already gone much longer than expected. It was four and a half hours yesterday Pippa Savage put her case. You will remember of course, she was sent home from Lausanne where the team was training at a preOlympic event because of incomppatible issues they said. She had had been fighting and disagreeing with members of team, so much so one of the members of the team had threatened to jump disagreeing with members of the

off the boat and swim to shore. She is arguing she is being denied natural justice. That decision will be made after today's hearing but we shouldn't expect a result before probably next Tuesday. OK, that probably next Tuesday. OK, thank you. A Sydney teenager is recovering in hospital after he was stabbed outside a shopping centre in Penrith, in Sydney's west last night. It's thought the teen was attacked during a brawl around 7:00 last night. Police are appealing for witnesses. And two teenage girls on the Gold Coast are in hospital after allegedly stabbing each other in a tussle over a pair of shoes. The fight broke out in a busy shopping centre just before 8:00 last night. Their injuries aren't life-threatening. Emergency crews in Perth have spent the night cleaning up after a tornado swept through the city's suburbs of Dianella and Morley, leaving a trail of destruction. Winds of more than 100km/h ripped down powerlines, damaging cars and homes. I just saw everything going up and up and up in the air. It was frightening, the noise was terrible. Power has been restored to thousands of homes. No-one was seriously injured. And Prince William has reached another military milestone, qualifying as an operational search-and-rescue captain in the Royal Air Force. The second in line to the throne is now able to command operations in Sea King helicopters. Prince William completed two days of ground-and-air-based tests to achieve the new title. Coming up - Anzac outrage. The diggers' descendants who may not get to mark the centenary of Gallipoli. But first here's Kochie. Thanks, Sarah. Finance news, now this looks pretty good. The Dow Jones up 46 points after yesterday's really good result but it was up 140 at one stage. So it has fizzled towards the end. Ben Bernanke, the boss of the Federal Reserve has been speaking to the senate committee in the US saying before they stimulate ineconomy any further, they will assess things first. So they didn't make any guarantees or promises. European markets are up. Spain did fill a bond auction. They had to pay over 6% yield for it but it was a good sign. good sign. To our region, China has cut its official interest rate for over 6% yield for it but it was a

the first time since 2008, cut it by. by.25% by.25%. We were up. Of course, global financial markets very nervous at the moment. In ten days' time, the Greeks go back to their election. Remember, they couldn't make a decision last time. No party had a big enough majority to form a coalition and the world is hanging on this. This result, to see whether they will stay in the euro or not. And their bunch of politicians had a bit of a debate overnight on Greek television. This is what happened. So, if you were nervous about Greece and Greek politicians this won't set your mind at rest as they go hell for leather at each other. This at each other. This is on the equivalent of 'Today Tonight', if you like. As the world waits. Europe waits on the brink of the abyss of what Greece is doing, those knuckleheads do that. It dozen give you comfort does it? Samantha Stosur's French Open dream is over for another year after a 3-sets loss to Italian Sara Errani. After losing a tight first set, Stosur fought back to easily take the second but she couldn't keep it going in the decider, losing 7-5, 1-6, 6-3. COMMENTATOR: Disappointment for Australia's Sam Stosur. I just didn't do enough really and it just sucks that it happened here today. Hear you, Sam. Maria Sharapova is the new world number one after thumping Petra Kvitova 6-3, 6-3. She'll start a heavy favourite against Errani in the final. Carlton will be out to get its faltering AFL premiership campaign back on track in tonight's blockbuster against reigning premier Geelong. The Blues welcome back Matthew Kreuzer, Lachie Henderson and Nick Duigan. But the Cats have four of their own high-profile inclusions, headed by Tom Hawkins and Joel Corey. All the action is on Seven and 7mate. Check your local guides for details. Queensland forward Dave Taylor is in no danger of missing Origin II next week despite injuring himself by falling out of bed. Matt Scott is a certain starter despite spending time away from the squad to be with his sick mother. In the NRL, Wests Tigers will be gunning for their seventh straight win in tonight's clash against an under-strength Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park. Sprint superstar Black Caviar has arrived in the UK ahead of her tilt at the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot later this month. The unbeaten mare completed the 30-hour trip from Melbourne arriving in London in good order. Seven will be showing Black Caviar's bid for her 22nd-straight victory live. You will see it from Royal Ascot, one place, live, right here on Seven. Check your guides as it comes closer. But Bruce McAvaney will host that great moment. Speaking of racing? Yes, giddyup. Grant is telling us about racing. Yes, the climax to Brisbane's biggest event, talking about the Stradbroke day on tomorrow also on Channel Seven. It will be ripper, huge turnout, 20,000 people, the greatest line-up of Australian horses, celebrities rubbing shoulders, great, great competition, grace horses, great calibre. In a state that has the best winter weather as well. to be a big one. They just spent $ best winter weather as well. Looking to be a big one. They just spent $500,000 on the jockey's change rooms ahead of this monster event. Shane, Grant, good to see Looking forward to it It is what it is all about, yes. A lot of Shane, Grant, good to see you.

preparation goes into it. We should be doing a role reversal. Who is the jockey here? I heard a rumour, I don't know whether it is true, that you have lost 9 kilos in one week? The whole of Australia would like to know how that is possible. Is it true? Yes, well, yes, it is true. Done it once before. Don't ever want to have to do it again. Really. It was that intense. It was pretty much. A lot of hard work, special diet, worked hard, paid off but yes, not really what you'd sort of to be doing every day of the week. not really what you'd sort of like So when do you stop eating before the event. How long? Like? Days or hours? Just getting hard to concentrate but... Probably a couple of days, really. You're mean. A couple of days we stop eating for. It is quite the commitment, but you're an athlete and you're focused on the game and it make as difference. Does a kilo make that much of a difference. A tenth of a kilo can make a difference whether we eat or not. A tick? So your gold chain could be the difference. I've taken that off before to ride, yes. What do you miss the most when you push your body this hard? Chocolate. Food, always look forward to a nice meal. I'm no different to anyone, I love my food. We got to be pretty strict but when we can indulge, nothing better than a nice roast. God! nothing better than a nice roast. God! I'm full, let's look at the forecast. Sunrise weather brought to you by Beacon Lighting's stocktake sale. With some items less than half price, get in bright and early. Shop online or in store now. Canberra, some early frost. Fog and sunshine for Launceston. Do some jockeys have different ways of losing weight. Do they prefer different systems. We have our own secrets. This being one of them. We jump in the hot spa. This gets up to about 40 degrees. 40! Nice and relaxing, stay in there for han hour or so yowl you'll get up to a kilo off in here. Fluid is heavy? You will diet and work on your weight all week but then to make weight or lose the last keel or or two, you come down to just sweating. Whether it is putting the jackets on and going for a run or... Um... Jumping in a sauna to get rid of the chocolate, I mean weight. have been a have been a great sport. The best, good luck tomorrow, mate. Seriously, of the chocolate, I mean weight. You

does this make you jealous? Yes. I feel bad now, see you guys shortly in half an hour. to a storm of controversy. Nick D'Arcy and Kenrick Monk posed with high-powered weapons in an American gun shop. Monk then posted this photo on his Facebook page. Swimming Australia has said it doesn't condone the posting of inappropriate content on Facebook, Twitter or any social media platform. There is now a push to have them cut from the Olympic team. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper is at Brisbane Airport. Good morning. Any sign of the pair yet? Well, their plane landed about 45 minutes ago, they are just clearing Customs. I am told they will be through the doors in a couple of minutes but Nick D'Arcy's girlfriend is here waiting for him. I had a chat with Olivia Dean a few moments ago. Maybe in hind the best idea. But as soon as I saw the pictures on Facebook, they, ago. Maybe in hind sight it wasn't

there is nothing much to it, there is nothing much they can do, they can't go and drink, they are in the middle of the season. It is an activity they can do without getting into trouble but they did. It a good thing the boys didn't pose with alcohol and guns at the same time. Who knows what mischief they could have got into. It is not the first time they have been the bad boys? Some No, and I think that is what is creating the furore over the photos. Both have the reputation of being the bad boys of swimming, particularly Nick D'Arcy who in 2008 bashed his team-mate Simon Cowelly breaking his nose and cheekbone and Kendrick monk lied to Kendrick monk lied to police, staggering telling them he was knocked off his bike be P-player and after an exhaustive search for the driver he admitted he was on his skateboard. The boys are about to arrive. There is a huge media contingent. We will cross back to you then. Let's get more from the Wilsons. Jim and Rebecca, good morning. Jim, we're less than two months out from the Olympics, shouldn't athletes be on their best behaviour? Lets I know they have a bad track record but they are young blokes. How many young blokes have been to American, seen a gun shop and tried to look like Bruce Willis out 'Die Hard'. They looked aggressive to look like Bruce Willis out of and like gangsters. The they have been to been and like gangsters. The they have been Dunblane or Colin bine or -- common bine or read about the German Olympics, I think it is a bad thing. These two, who have been in strife before. When will they learn? It is nots a good look and I think that certainly, this whole thing, for the girlfriend saying the benefit of hind sight. No benefit of hind sight, they are out of line, it is unacceptable. Look it is but I see your point too, Kochie. In terms of it being a huge issue I don't rate it along anything Nick D'Arcy or kindric monk have -- Kendrick monk have done before. I mean the girlfriend going what else is there to do in America? I have never been to a gun shop in America. Disneyland. Fair dinkum, without having to drink. The problem with people like Darcey and Monk, you don't have to go to an audition process of decency to become an Olympian. So putting them under the spotlight and saying their Olympic chances are on the line is not going to happen. There is no question these two are going to the Olympics whether we like it or lump it and that is life. I don't race Darcey, Monk is a bit stupid but there is an over reaction. Nick D'Arcy shouldn't be on the plane to London, taxpayers have funded the trip. Not because of this? No, previous, a string of out-of-pool controversies. Tell it like it is, Jim. Thank you. A lottery system is being considered to decide who can go to the centenary of Gallipoli in 2015. The ballot's being considered because of restrictions on the numbers that can attend. But the RSL's South Australian president, Jock Statton, is concerned relatives of Australians who died at Gallipoli will miss out on attending the important anniversary. Let's bring in our Big Guns of Politics - Environment Minister Tony Burke in Sydney and in Hobart, Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey. Tony, would a lottery be unfair to the relatives of the original Anzacs? I think first thing we have got to note here is that no decision has been made. No decision can be made right now. We are still in a negotiation with New Zealand and Turkey. Only 10,000 people will fit. Obviously, there is going to be a much higher demand than that this time. But in terms of working out what the arrangements are, we are in somebody else's country. We need to work it out sensibly with Turkey New Zealand are in those negotiations as well. There are lots work it out sensibly with Turkey and

of Australians who want to be there. And the precise methods are something we are still, probably a couple of month being able to land exactly how it is done. But certainly, for what will be one of the most solemn events ever for Australians, not everybody who to be able to get there will be able Australians, not everybody who wants to get there. How we manage that we haven't decided yet. And Joe, I suppose, if you say let the relatives of the descendants have first go, whatever is left over the public can go into a ballot but 100 years on, the relatives of those descendants could number in couple of hundred each? Couldn't descendants could number in the they? Well, Kochie, I agree with Tony there. Let's see how the process unfolds. We, remember, we had a lottery process to get tickets to the Olympicss. But at the same time, there were tickets that allocated to families. Families of Olympians and families of the time, there were tickets that were

Olympic family. So I am sure they can get the balance right. I don't think, at this stage, people should be too worried. I am sure the process can be dealt with. OK, thanks, Joe. Look, federal police say they didn't have enough evidence to hold an alleged people-smuggling king pin. The man known as Emad fled Australia after being identified on TV. How was he allowed to leave the country and should he have been some It is a good question. The federal government has cut $ government has cut $250 million out of the -- billion out of the federal police. It is kind of surprising that it was another TV program that was able to identify 'Captain Emad'. Frankly, the minister needs to explain. If he did have the powers why didn't he use them. If he didn't, when is he going to introduce the laws to give him power to deal with the matter. But we have been on this program talking introduce the laws to give him the

about boats for a while. We have had 50 boats arrive this year alone, if there were temporary protection visas in place which we have been argueing and which we had been before he would have been thrown out of the country at the appropriate time or there might be some other process available. Tony, you a bit embarrassed by all this? Couldn't the police or the government advice the police say holding him until we get to the bottom of it. get to the bottom of it. I only know what I read from the federal commissioner of police, Tony in the paper today. He said there is commissioner of police, Tony Negar difference in information you have to provide to a journalist and what they believe would stand up in court. They were in a situation they didn't believe they had enough to charge. I don't have access to the federal evidence the way the police do but if the ploothe police commissioner is saying they didn't have the evidence to hold someone, I have no reason to not believe him. OK, thank you, gentlemen, catch you next week. A massive clean-up is underway this morning after a freak storm ripped through northern Perth yesterday. Likened to a tornado, destructive winds of up to 100km/h hit the Dianella-Morley area. It ripped down powerlines and trees and left a trail of damage. (wind Around 5,000 homes were blacked out, although most have power back. There have been no reports of injuries. Which seeminise credible! Seven News reporter Kate Smithers joins us from Perth. Kate, how frightening was the storm? Just incredible how quickly this tornado came about and then it was all over in about 60 seconds. As you said, it was packing winds of more than 100km/h. It hit about a dozen streets. Houses, some missed and then others were hit quite hard. It through shopping trolleys, wheelie bins, sheets of metal thrown five, six stories in the air. What have they been saying? The hinges, the massive big doors been thrown off their hinges. How frightening was it for people in there? What are they talking to you about? Residents are shocked. Many were at work and come home and found roofs off. In some houses, the roofs have shifted into the backyard. They walked into their house and seen the sky. It was incredible how strong it is. The Weather Bureau is saying it is a classic tornado, short and intense but very predictable but they couldn't put out a warning for it. Big clean-up ahead for those people. Thank you for joining us.

Australian swimmers Nick D'Arcy and Kenrick Monk have touched down in Brisbane where they're set to face questions over a controversial photo which was posted online. They're expected to be reprimanded by Swimming Australia officials over the image which shows the pair posing with guns while in the US. Maybe in hindsight it wasn't the best idea. But as soon as I saw the pictures on Facebook, I really didn't think twice about it. there is nothing much to it, there is nothing much they can do - they can't go and drink, It is an activity they can do without getting into trouble but they did. The pair had been in the US for a pre-Olympic event in California. ANZ customers will find out today whether the bank will cut their mortgage rates after the Reserve Bank slashed the official cash rate by 0.25% earlier this week. The remaining three of the big four banks have not yet made a move. Last time we had the NAB go first because it knew it could get down below the 7% mark and have the 6.99% special. This time it's a bit harder so, yep, I think the other banks will wait to see what ANZ does. The official cash rate now stands at 3.5%. Matthew Milat is due to be sentenced today after pleading guilty of murdering his friend in the same forest where his great-uncle killed seven backpackers in the 1990s. Milat and his accomplice, Cohen Klein, attacked 17-year-old David Auchterlonie with an axe in the New South Wales' Belanglo State Forest in 2010. The killing was recorded on a mobile phone. The chilling audio was played at their sentencing hearing last month. It's believed the pair were motivated solely to get an adrenalin rush from a thrill kill. 10,000 public sector jobs are set to be cut in New South Wales as the State Government desperately tries to drag the budget back to surplus. That's on top of 5,000 job cuts announced in September. It's understood the state budget deficit has blown out to $826 million, more than double what was forecast six months ago. Speeding fines for New South Wales drivers will also rise by 12.5%. Two young boys have amazed Chinese television audiences with an entertaining blend of hip-hop dance and traditional Chinese martial arts. The boys were performing on a Chinese talent show, wearing costumes from a popular play about Chinese warriors. Their routine earned them the top performance award. They say they hope it makes more people like hip hop. That's sort of 'China's Got Talents' should get Grant over there. Finance news now news now the rally on Wall Street should get Grant over there. Finance certainly fizzled. The Dow closed. Ben Bernanke, the world's most powerful banker addressing the senate said they will consider more stimulus.

Pearson equalled her own world-leading time. COMMENTATOR: This is a very good run by Pearson, Pearson's gonna get this. 12.49! That is terrifically quick. Usain Bolt scored a narrow win over fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell in the 100m but he's no good at hurdling, judging by this collision with a track official. He's tried to go over the top. Never a good move and everybody is OK at the end of the day. What hope have you got. He was just warming down and she jumped out in front of him. She didn't let go. Do not jump in front of the fastest man on the face of the earth. He won't stop. It is how he rolls. A huge end of the autumn racing carnival in Brisbane, Yugoslavia have been there Kochie.

You never let us down. And I like the way you provide a money-back guarantee, which is terrific. With so much at stake with tomorrow's Stradbroke event, one of Australia's greatsh sprint races so much depends on the track condition. The pen tromer. My favourite word in sport, the penetrometer. You control a lot of that around the course. What does it, it is not a key in the deck?
