A new program is putting kids as young as 12 behind the wheel in an effort to create a generation of better drivers. The program is called CAMS Ignition and it aims to teach children safe driving behaviour years before they take to the road to reduce the road toll. Those behind it want it rolled out in every high school. I'm joined now by CAMS program president Andrew Papadopoulos And teen racing champ Jack Le Brocq. Good morning. Andrew, why teach kids to drive at the age of 12? We would like the young drivers to obtain the right attitude from a young age. We find that trying to change attitude of a 17 or 18-year-old is too difficult. We would rather impart the correct progress procedures, discipline at a younger age and then build up on that until they get their L plates and get on the road. It's in a safe environment, before I let my 12-year-old kid behind the wheel of a wheel of a car, I want to know they are not on the road. No, it's on a skid pan, on a bit of grass or a school playground obviously with no children there it is a very safe environment, just obviously with no children there but driving around witches hats with a professional experience with Jack, you drive Formula One cars. professional experience with them. How old were when you learned to drive. Did it make a difference. I have been driving go carts since I was 7 years old. I think it helps, just having the awareness, I drove my first race car at 14. So I had a head start on how the car moves and works. Tell me why, those that hear this story, no way story, no way am I putting a 12 twreer old behind the wheel of a car? Why do you think it - how would it benefit? It get them in there early. They get to learn. They can go around with parents, saying, picking up on little things that they might be doing ring that they might pick up and take that to when they get their licence. That's why the CAMS program is great. It gives them all the information that they need to all the stuff they need before they get their licence. They are aware of what Stary regulars are. what Stary regulars what Stary what their licence. They are aware of What the regulations are. Half the time parents can be the problem. It's notwithstanding parents, it's with professional instructors. There are some pretty bad adult dreeufrgs out there? That is a problem. We get in our comfort zone and we think we comfort zone and we think we are great drivers, when you look at parent driving, you know, they are great drivers, when you look at a not 100%, and we are imparting that not 100%

knowledge on our children, it's knowledge on our children, it's just knowledge on our children, it's just

not good enough. The fatality rate is frightening. We have to do something. Thank you very much, we will open two up to the Soapbox. Let us know what you think. Here is Nat. the future of supermarket shopping. Well, we've been given a look at Woolworths has just launched its new iPad app. It remembers your shopping list and allows you to buy things on the move. You can also scan the barcode from the empty pack of a product you've just finished and immediately re-order. The software's been around on Smart Phones for a while but it's just hitting the tablet market now. We're joined by tech expert Seamus Byrne, the editor of CNET Australia. Seamus, can you take us through how this works? , yes, I think the ig big update has , Yes,

been the iPad integration, the cools things that that you can set the up, if you are a regular shopper, things you buy regularly that are currently a special. You can browse by categories or search for specific products and scan them as you mentioned. Set up your basic lists so whatever your standard shopping lists might be and then you can also order on-line for collection or delivery or you can just have the order on-line for collection or for list in your hand and it will say " "this is your local store. list in your hand and it will say

"this is your local store.' It's quite slick. It has the built in. When you see the recipes quite slick. It has the magazine inside the magazine, it actually lets you lets you hit a button, let's just make a shopping list out of everything I need to make that recipe. That's the kind of integration that they have, you can just integration that they have, you can hit the buttons and it takes you through the recipe and having bought everything you need. Instead of writing my little lists. A lost companies moving this way. Coles has said that they want to see the end of check out queues, we are moving towards this - you will have a trolley full of food. You will go by some scanners and it will automatically scan and you will be out of the store? We have seen that demoesed. How do out of the store?.

you manage, if it doesn't work. there a whole trolley that stops you manage, if it doesn't work. Is everybody. So there will be those kind of human issues. We are seeing as well that some of the big in the city that have the self as well that some of the big stores service check outs, trying to get that human factor back in again, it is all about the balance of what do you need at the time and how do you want to shop for it? Being able to buy on-line and have it either as a collector a delivery, all those kinds of options just mean, I need it Thai way, you can get it now. What will your What will it Thai way, you can get it now. What

What supermarkets look like in 20 years or so? I definitely see a lot of that improvement in the automation process. That's it, right now, self service is a scan service is a scan every Ingall But there has been this promise of service is a scan every Ingall item. RFI detag systems where it is, you only need to pass within a couple of metres of something for it to be scaned. That's where that whole trolley experience comes in. And then we are seeing that mobile phones are now taking over that kind of wallet space with the eye rifle of these NFC chips in phones that means you don't need to think about where is my wallet, wrs have is my phone. Your phone will do everything. It just kind of short circuits that process. I just want it, I can get it down. It happens, as long as you pass through the zone. That scanner zone. Shopping is getting easier. That has got to be good news. Thank you, Seamus for your time this morning. The Australian defence force says an ,

Scientists think they've found on the French Swiss border The physicists at CERN the so-called god particle. believe they may have discovered that gives atoms their mass. Put simply, it's the particle after the big bang It existed a fraction of a second the creation of the universe. and could explain Dr Karl Kruszelnicki Sunrise science guru is here to explain it all. , Why should we care about this? Because it will give us a toy that we can use in the future. You may remember, we had Jono Sullivan here. He was trying to find black holes out in the union verse and as a result. We have wifi. We look for black holes, Einstein comes up with this theory of relativity, a century later, people are using gps to 12 later, people are using gps to navigate their way to get some healthy saturated fats. So, the theory of relativity gives us the gps or in CERN physics, they have to shift data around. On 25 December 1990, Tim burnsly invents the worldwide web. I wonder if that will ever take off. So there is pure research will give us stuff that we have no idea about. have no idea about. So

So it gives you a foundation on So

which inch builds things. This God particle is as important as when they map the human general om, that it just gave them that road map to do great things. Yeah, well, the Yeah, well, the mass is a problem. You've got this volume, so you go to a bath tub, you shove your leg in there, it overflow, we understand that. You have optical properties, light lands on you, I can see you, some of it is absorbed. Some is reflectedment you also have mass. No idea. You are made of atom, they have a SEN trol core like a little sole ah system. They are made of quarks, they have no mass or volume. You are made of stuff that has no mass and volume yet you have mass and volume. How come? I don't know. We have to find out and cheaply from these 10,000 We have to find out and fairly scientists, the whole cost of the thing is less than two American B-2 bombers. There will be an absolutely must have device that will run this tear research. We could have space travel, you see the big must have device that will run on

problem with space travel is mass. It costs $ It costs $20,000 to get a kilogram of ig into orbit. Perhaps if you could just turn off the mass. Would you. Would have that thought looking for black holes would give you wifi. I love talking to you. Instead of getting a headache on this sort of stuff, I think this could open up all sorts of possibilities. all sorts of possibilities.. I'm lost. No, no, No, no,. Turn your mass off.

We will get back to you when we no more. Thank you, mark. Two North Queensland boys have died after being buried alive when a drain they were playing in collapsed last night. It's believed the boys, aged 12 and 14, had turned the drain into a makeshift cubbyhouse. Rescuers scrambled to pull them out but they couldn't be revived. It's not yet known if the pair was related. And we'll have the latest on that accident suspected of organising the asylum-seeker boat that sank on its way to Australia last month, killing around 90 people. The news comes as Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was welcomed to Australia with an official state dinner in Darwin last night. On the steps of the Northern Territory's Parliament House, Julia Gillard greeted her guest of honour. (FANFARE PLAYS) The Prime Minister was keen to talk up the two countries' strong relationship. I believe problems which once threatened to divide us now only bring us closer. The warm welcome was bipartisan. In whatever I have, now, and in the future, I look forward to working in closest harmony with Indonesia. President Yudhoyono responded in his native tongue. He spoke about enhancing cooperation between Australia and Indonesia and bringing peace and prosperity to the region. That will be tested today when Julia Gillard and Mr Yudhoyono meet for tough, diplomatic talks. And asylum seekers are set to dominate. Indonesian police have confirmed they've arrested a man suspected of organising the boat that sank off Christmas Island last month, killing around 90 people. He's believed to be a key member of a people-smuggling syndicate and organising several boats to Australia. Australia's most patient parents, Bruce and Denise Morcombe, have issued a desperate plea to police to return their son Daniel's remains so they can give him a proper burial. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper joins me now. Michelle, why has there been such a long delay? good morning, Nat, well, Daniel's remains are evidence and together, with his clothes that were found late last year, they have late last year, they have been sent for multiple forensic tests here in Australia and overseas. I talked about Bruce about this recently. He just said it has been so frustrating because Daniel's remains were found almost 11 months ago. And he really wants to have a burial and he feels that authorities aren't really keeping him and Denise in the loop properly. Part of the problem is that the bones were found almost 8 years after Daniel disappeared so it has been very difficult for science has been very difficult for scientistss to try to extract evidence that will be 100% and will stand up in court. Also, Daniel was a twin. So obviously his DNA is very similar to his brothers and authorities want to rule out that the possibility that the defence might argue that the bones aren't conclusively Daniels's. Evidence is kept until after a verdict is handed down and also after the possibility that an appeal may be made. So, unfortunately I, in this case, Daniel's bones are a key piece of that evidence and will hopefully provide authorities with answers as to how he died and who killed him but that's little consolation for Bruce and Denise who just want to put their son to rest and have the family finally say good by.

Sadly they were pronounced community, a lot of people do know each other, this will hit the community very hard. Were the boys off playing when they were reported missing? Is that how they were found, do you know? Yeah the exact cause hasn't been determined yet but police have said that they may have been playing inside the drain. There was a cubbyhouse leading into the drain so it's not known whether they may have been building the time it collapsed or just taking been building the cubbyhouse at the shelter inside the drain but police will be back at the scene this morning as they try and determine the cause of this tragedy. All right, let us know if you hear any more information. Thank you for your time. The Reserve Bank is widely expected to keep interest rates on hold when it meets today. Rates were cut in May and June but economists are predicting they will stay at 3.5% this month. It comes as new data shows recent rate cuts appear to have helped turn around falling home prices. According to RP Data-Rismark house prices across capital cities rose an average of 1% in June. Joining me now with more is Aussie Home Loans boss John Symond. Good morning. , Record amounts of homes for sale at the moment. Yes, a bit early to crack the bubbly, whilst you've got more than double the amount of homes on the market taking double and treble the time to sell, that creates a lag what may have helped those numbers was different state governments were time to sell, that creates a lag but

offering incentives to bring forward first home buyers. There is a whole lot of reasons but I think it's just too early because you know, it's all negative news around there and consumers, this time around, this cycle, be very caution because previously 1-1.25% drop, would have created a surge, this time consumers are more concerned and they are not diving in. We are certainly not seeing a surge as you say at the moment. Do you think the Reserve Bank the hold rates today They will hold today, maybe in 2 or 3 months, that will depend on the news, good or bad continuing to flow in Europe and whether data to be soft in the Australian economy. in Europe and whether data continues

OK. So, tell us what the Reserve Bank - their thinking process if you like? You rooet read the minutes as well of the Reserve Bank. they seeing us at the moment? well of the Reserve Bank. How are Well, I think they are seeing Australia as still being in a pretty good place but the Reserve Bank unfortunately I has put too much emphasis on mining and they look at the bottom line and the bomb bottom line is, everything looks positive but they but they are now seeing and believing that the vast majority of the Australian economy is struggling, retail, small bus, doing it Tour de France and the Reserve Bank on the Bank on Bank it Tour de France and the it Tour de France and it Tour de France it tough, they want to keep the Australian economy on an Ian line, but they have been a bit slow this time around. So That's the Reserve Bank's think, probably keep rates on hold today. What about the banks themselves? They have been increasingly moving independently from the Reserve Bank? Are we likely to see them move on rates? Well, they have taken some big khunks over the last few rate drops and I think going forward, there will be a less the banks to do that and on the one hand, you know, we don't want to there will be a less inclination by

squeeds the banks too much to put them in a position say I'm going to stop lending, we are losing money. We don't want that to happen but we don't want them to be greedy or gouge consumers as well.

people smugger that Indonesia last apparently arrested? No, I don't. But we welcome any Indonesian cooperation that can help us bring an end to the people snugling.

If people knew that by handing money they weren't going to get to Australian territory but were to be stalled in Malaysia, then they wouldn't be paying these people $ Australian territory but were going

wouldn't be paying these people $6,000 in the hope of ending up on Australian soil. Let's, I think all of Australia is hoping we can sort out that problem in the next few months.

William and Kate's expenses are being scrutinised. How come? They are, Kochie, because they have to reveal how much it costs to send them around the world. In fact, what was revealed was that something like 80,000 Australian dollars was spent on the return journey from Los Angeles for the two - the royal couple and their seven entourage which is quite a lot of money and raised a few eye Broughs over here but it's part of the whole process of this couple travelling the world and being ambassadors I suppose. $ and being ambassadors I suppose. $80,000 one way just on-air tickets. That's the whole gang flu first class, even their attendants. They didn't actually. That was for business class tickets. That was the figure they had. William and Kate and their former Washington ambassador were all upgraded to first class. There was a problem with their entertainment systems. I think they need to go to Flight Centre and get better deals. The Royal Family cost Britains around 80 cents each per around 80 cents each per each Brit 80 cents a year, is that good value for money, do you think? I I think given the year we have had and the royal wedding, some people will argue it's not because it doesn't include the cost of a security which is pretty hefty. When royals travel abroad, when Charles and Camilla go to Australian, the Australian public who pick up the tab. That's a more difficult and Camilla go to Australian, it's

question. The Queen, her expenses about 50 million at the moment. That keeps all her staff and everyone, doesn't it. It's run a bit like a government department.
