Today the world pays

tribute to the first man on

the moon, Neil Armstrong.

There's been both a change

obviously and a change for a

better future. And the hopes

and expectations have now

been placed in my hands. The

Chief Minister elect Terry

Mills outlines his vision for

the Territory under the CLP.

A handler attack in a

Melbourne home has put two

men in hospital with critical

injuries. This is News Now

for Sunday, 26 August, I'm

Chris Roe. Also coming up

this hour the White House

continues to - the race to

the White House continues

with Republican candidate

Mitt Romney and running Paul

Ryan joining forces in Ohio.

The Roos demolish the Wests

Tigers in the NRL. And the forecavities a few showers on

the east Central Coast and in

the far south. Mostly sunny elsewhere.

The Prime Minister has

joined many tributes to the

first man on the moon, Neil

Armstrong who's died at the

age of 82. Julia Gillard says

that naoem Armstrong's death

marks the end of an amazing

era of human progress. The

apoll jo missions brought achievements of science and

knowledge that have helped

change history. She says she

salutes Armstrong and the

explorers that followed him

and the worlds they continued

to open for us. The 82-year-old passed away over

night. As commander of the

Apollo 11 he became the first

human to set foot on the

moon, July 201969. That's

one small step for man, one

giant leap for man kind.

They were the remarkable

words that marked a defining

moment for the 20th century,

taking those first steps Neil

Armstrong will be remembered

by generations to come. And

astronaut Neil Armstrong will

serve as mission xhader. The

82-year-old passed away after complications following a heart bypass operation. A

shock for the science

community and those who work

ed alongside him. The wife of

fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin

paid her own tribute. There

were 12 men that walked on

the moon and Buzz and Neil

were in the first trip. It

was so shocking to me today

when someone called me

earlier on because you just

don't want to see these great

heros go. Neil Armstrong

started his career as a pie

lot in the Korean war before

devoting his life to space

travel. It was in 1969 that

man would finally make it to

the moon. The bravery of

Armstrong and his fellow astronauts was made clear

when speaking years later. He explained how he thought

there was a 90% chance of

getting back to earth. He also stressed the importance

of that journey for space

exploration and easing

international relations

between Russia and America.

It was a diversion which

prevented a war, nevertheless

it was a diversion. It was

intense, it did a lot to both

sides to take the high road

with the objectives of

science and learning and

exploration. Eventually it

provided a mechanism for engendering cooperation

between former adversaries.

In that sense among others,

it was an exceptional national investment for both

sides. A reclusive man he

was a reluctant American

hero, yet his contribution to

the world of space travel was

recognised internationally.

I remember waving American

flags and my grandfather

telling me that the Apollo

mission was an example of how Americans can do anything

they put their minds to.

Nchss the eagle has landed.

But it was for the astro

notes of the future that he

would really shine out. He

was really an inspiration to an entire generation of

people. The astronauts that

I'd worked with had really

been so impressed by the

dedication of those in the pa

poll o program achieving that first series of moon landings

and wanted to be part of what

came next, the next chapter

of space exploration. Neil

was the kind of person that

we all a spired to be. Two,

one zero, all engine running,

lift off. With the death of

Neil Armstrong a generation

of space history has lost its

star. In their own tribute

his family said the next time

you step outside on a clear

night and see the moon

smiling down at you think of

Neil Armstrong and give him a

wink. Northern Territory

Chief Minister elect Terry

Mills has outlined his vision

for the Territory already

turning hills attention to

tackling law and order issues. Prime Minister Julia

Gillard congratulated the new

leader after the Country

Liberal Party was Swipt to

power overnight ending

Labor's 11 year reign in the

Top End. Chief Minister

elect has outlined some of

his... he campaigned heavily

on law and order issues and

his first meeting of the day

was with police commissioner

John McRon efforts where he

announced his plans to

dismantle the banned drinkers

register. My first meeting

today was with the police

commissioner to begin the

task of decommissioning the

banned drinkers register.

Those steps have now, the

first steps are now under

way. There are three phases

to that. First is - the first

step can't officially take

place until we're sworn in.

With our commitment to change the culture of the Northern

Territory, to change the

direction to deliver a better

future we've got to know

where we're at with crime. So

there will be the

commencement this week of the comprehensive audit on the

status of crime in the

Northern Territory but immediately commencing with

the reinstatement of the

quartering crime stats. Mr

Mills also directed

commissioner Mick Roberts to

continue the campaign to employ more police officers.

One of his fundamental

campaign promise s was to get 120 new police officers on

the beat. Meanwhile Mr Mills

has promised to make his

first visit as Chief Minister

when sworn in by the

administrator to an indigenous community where

he'll meet with traditional

owners to begin discussions

of their plans for the

future. My first trip will

be to demonstrate to traditional people that we

will work with you, that decision making goes into

your hands, we work with you

to solve the problems that

you have spoken very loudly

and very clearly about by

supporting our candidateses.

During the campaign Mr Mills

said that any public servant

earning over $110,000 who

isn't in front-line services

and whose job is isn't in the interests of protecting

Government could be in the

Schopg line. Now he says all

jobs are safe. The question

now is who will make up the

cabinet in the Terry Mills Government, particularly in

affairs Minister, the role of indigenous

particularly if the Mills

Government wants to tackle

the entrenched battle

confronting ter tore yanles.

week after parliament passed

Coles has accused the

legitimating small business Government of neglect

and pandering to big

business. The Shadow Minister

for Small Business Bruce

Billson told Australian

Agenda that Labor's industrial policies are

stifling and too complex. We think an industrial relations

system built largely on the

framework that's in place now

but sensitive to the capacity

of small business where the

we become President and is a

Vice President, we want to

The Romney campaign immediately shot back.

In Ohio this morning

Romney stayed away from the

birth certificate joke that

caused a dustup yesterday in

his home State of Michigan

when he told a crowd of

thousands. No-one's asked to

see my birth certificate,

they know this is the place

where we were born and

raised. Romney said he was

not questioning where the

President was born. Why do

you say that. I went in

Michigan and Anne and I were

both born in Detroit. Have

been a little humour goes a

long way. It was great to be

home, to be in a place where

Anne and I had grown up. The

crowd loved it and got a good

laugh. Meantime tropical

storm Isaac is powering

towards Florida. Florida's

governor has declared a state

of emergency just as we've

seen the Republican party

gather for its National

convention in Tampa. Isaac

will be his first in an

emergency shelter. If it

can go one way or the other,

stay over the gulf too long,

become a bigger storm, then

it's like, here we go, another few days at the shelter. You'll stay here as

long as it takes to ride it

out. Yes. Shelet terraces

are opening for those who

can't leave. At the key West

airport there are several

flights out for those who

can't. Yesterday we actually

came here and changed the

flight. Govern Rick Scott

has already declared a state

of emergency. You now have

the risk of hurricane in the

Dees and also in the pan

focus on all 90 million

Floridans, the residents plus

all the visitors. In Tampa

the city is handing out sand

bags to combat the risk of

potential flooding. The port

also plans to close on due to

Isaac's threat but officials

at the convention centre say

they are raid oar for the

delegates and the storm. At

least three people were

reported dead in Haiti and

others still living in tent

cities after the 2010

strong in the AFL. They

were, Tom Hawkins leading the

way. He kept himself in the

race for the Coleman Medal.

Meantime Fremantle is

currently leading North

Melbourne but the Cats' 34

point win was campened by

another injury to Travis

Varcoe. Travis Varcoe was

making his first appearance

since last year's grand final

but his return was

short-lived, subbed off at

half-time with a suspected

foot problem. It failed to

dampen. The Cats claimed a 31 point lead at the long break.

Outside of the boot,

amazing. The dogs lost

Daniel Giansiracusa, but put

themselves in the contest at

the final change. First goal

of his career. The margin

was cut to just 15 in the

early quarter before the Cats

regained their composure to

ease to a 34 point victory.

Matthew Pavlich was a late

withdrawal for Fremantle with

a groin injury. He was

quickly joined on the

sideline by Kepler Bradley.

But the Dockers had no

problem in the opening

quarter. That's a big

turnover. Last night

Hawthorn downed Sydney in a

thriller. Gold Coast knocked

the Blues out in finals

Collingwood. The magpies were

quarters and the Eagles

Hawthorn against Sydney.

The top stories, tributes

continue to flow for US

astronaut Neil Armstrong, the

first man on the moon died of

a heart related illness aged 82. New Northern Territory

leader Terry Mills outlines

his vision for the State

under the CLP. Two men remain

in hospital after a hammer

attack in a Melbourne home.

The forecast, a few showers

on the east coast, mostly

sunny elsewhere. He was a

combat naval vaif yachter,

spice pioneer and the first

man to set foot on the moon,

Neil Armstrong has died from

complications following heart

bypass surgery. He was 28

years old. One small step

for man, one giant leap for

man kind. It's a brilliant

surface in that sunlight.

It's an interesting place to

be. I recommend it. When

Neil Armstrong set foot on

the moon on July 20th 1969 he

fulfilled the goal that had

been set by President John

Kennedy just eight years

earlier. It was a long, long

way from his Birth Place near

tiny Wapakoneta Ohio in 1930.

Armstrong's fascination with

airplanes began in 1936 and

that never left him. He flew

78 combat missions as a naval

aif yachter, after the war he

became a test pilot and flew

the hottest aircraft around

including the sleep X-15. He

took the craft to almost 38

mimes and the edge of space.

He was in the first group of

civilian astronauts and made

his official flight in 1966

aboard Gemini 8. The mission

almost ended in disaster when

a thruster on his craft stuck

open, sending the ship

whirling through space.

Armstrong used a backup

system, stopped the one

revolution per second spin

and made an emergency landing

in the Pacific. The preparation included learning

how to fly the un-Gainy lunar

module which would descend

vertically to the moon's

surface. Armstrong had

another brush with death when

the training vehicle rolled

to its side. After that

happened when it was all over

you went back to your office

and sat down to do paperwork.

That's true. I did, there

was work to be done. You

were just almost killed. Oh,

but I wasn't. Then finally

after years of training the

moment arrived. On July 16,

1969 a giant Saturn 5 rocket

lumbered off the pad at the

Kennedy space centre carrying

the 38 year old Armstrong and

Buzz Aldrin and Michael

Collins. Armstrong later said

the landing itself was the

high point for him. As Aldrin

called out speed and

altitude. The eagle has

landed. They've got the flag

up now. After almost a day

there the astronauts lifted

off, rejoined Collins in the

command module and began the

long journey home. Despite

the initial fanfare Armstrong

remained a humble and intense

ly private person. He left

NASA and taught engineering

at the university of Cincinnati and later served

on the boards of several aero

space firms. One of his rare

public appearances was at a

gathering with Aldrin and

other Apollo astronauts. The

important achievement of

Apollo is demonstration that

humanity is not forever

chained to this planet and

our visions go rather further

than that and our opportunities aren't

limited. Among the hard

charging super achieving

Apollo Astra nauts there was

bound to be some envy about

whom NASA would select but

Michael Collins flatly stated

what so often was said about

his reticent and

self-effacing commander "I can't offhand think of a

better choice to be the first

man on the moon". The Prime

Minister has congratulated

the new lead er of the

Northern Territory Terry

Mills. There are now only

three states or Territories

the Country Liberal Party with Labor Governments after

took power in an emfat crick

victory. Mr Mills addressed

the media today outlining his

vision for the Territory.

The decision that

Territorians made over the

last week, including on

Saturday night is an historic decision. There's been a vote

for exchange obviously and a

change for a better future

and the hopes and expectations have now been

placed in my hands and it's

in the hands of my team. And

I am determined and I am

passionate to ensure that

those hopes and expectations

are realised. My first

meeting today was with the

police commissioner. To begin

the task of decommissioning

the banned drinkers register.

Those steps - the first steps

are now under way. There are

three phases to that but the

first step is to, in appointing a justice Minister. That justice

Minister then issues the

instruction for a - an immunity from prosecution for

anyone who fails to scan the

ID of a person purchasing

alcohol. The notice of intent

to dissolve the legislative

instrument by which the BDR

derives its power. But the

most important phase which is

a third aspect of that is to recognise that those who are

currently on the banned

drinkers register, a number

of those are in need of help

and that is help that will be

delivered. The focus then

moves quickly to appropriate

rehabilitation and that is

the next and most important

phase of our approach to

effecting real change. Two

men are fighting for their

lives after they were

attacked in Melbourne's south-east this morning. It's

believed a man wielding a

hammer hit them over the head

numerous times at a property

at St Kilda East. Two of the

males both in a serious

condition at the Alfred Hospital with life

threatening injuries. One

man has been arrested. The

Taliban has sent an ominous

warning to New Zealand troops in Afghanistan suggesting you

will be found and killed. But

the message has been shrugged

off by Johnathan Coleman who

says that troops already know

the risks. It follows outrage

on the attack of a memory of Lance Corporal gentleman

Sinda baker by film maker.

That's the message from

global peace and justice

Auckland. The group held a protest outside the defence

force army centre this

afternoon in a bid to get

Kiwi troops home. The protest

follows an ominous message

from the Taliban, a spokesman

told the herald on Sunday New

Zealand troops were being

targeted because of their

inferior repry. We will find

them and kill them, there's

no safety for them. The

Government know that is we're

put can young New Zealanders'

lives at risk. The time is

now to come clean, do the

right thing and bring them

home and save those troops

from any more possibility of

being killed or injured. But

Defence Minister Johnathan

Coleman Sets while he's

concerned about the safety of

troops the Taliban's message

is tactical. There is a war

of words, propaganda and

naturally the Taliban would

want to unSedgets the public

in the Government of New

Zealand with statements like

this. Meanwhile Barbara

Sumner Burston has apologise

ed after publicising

derogatory comments about

Jacinda Baker. Oh so fallen

soldier Jacinda Baker liked

boxing and baking. Did they

forget she also liked

invading countries we are not

at war with. Killing innocent

people and had no moral

compass. A Facebook page

attracted more than 20,000 supporters, triggering the

apology. But global peace and

justice protestors say they

support her antiwar message.

But while these protestors

want Kiwi troops home today, Jonathan Coleman says it's

not that easy. Aside from

commitments the troops have

made, the logistics of

packing up camp, airport

availability, mean troops

won't be home before April.

Opposition activists in Syria have accused Government

troops of a massacre on the

outScirtss of Damascus.

Amateur video appears to show

victims inside a mosque in

Damrey. It was the day after

the town was taken by the

army. They claim most of the

victims were shot by the

troops in house to house

raids. Reportedly three

children are among the

victims. The British based

Syrian observatory for how

many rights say it's received

reports of deaths in the

Syrian town but is yet to

confirm how many were killed.

The man charged with last

month's movie massacre

allegedly told a college

classmate he wanted to kill

people four months before the

shooting. The allege ed

conversation about killing

apparently occurred around

the time that Holmes began

buying large amounts of

ammunition online. A tiger

has killed a female zoo keep

er after it escaped from its

enclosure in Germany. The

tragedy has been described as

one of the darkest days in

colonel Owen zoo's history. A

43 year old zookeeper mauled

to death and the Siberian

tiger shot dead before he

could kill again. The zoo's

director pulled the trigger

fearing the escaped animal

posed a real threat to

visitors inside the zoo.

TRANSLATION: Today surely is

the most terrible day for my

career, we have lost a keeper

today. As it appears it was a

question of inadvertence. Out

of respect for the family we

will not name the person. I

was not at the zoo at the

time and I only came clart

and shot and killed the

animal so that we could enter

the enclosure and take a look

but the employee was already

dead. The zoo was evacuated

and a police Swot team rushed

to the site but before the

marksmen got to the zoo his

managing shot the animal.

TRANSLATION: Around 12 noon

today an injure ed zoo deeper

was found by one of her colleagues. At the time the

tiger was still near the

injured keeper. It was

possible to lure the tilinger

away to a back section but

there was a possibility for

the tiger to escape to

freedom. Zoo personnel then

managed to shoot dead the

animal. According to local

reports this is the tiger, a

four-year-old Siberian male

called Altai who was brought

here as part of the tiger

breeding program. He fathered

three cubs. The zoo was reopened following the

afternoon attack but a

planned late night opening

has been cancelled. The dust

is yet to settle on Apple's

patent lawsuit victory over

Samsung. But Samsung is set

to appeal the ruling. Much

of the huge market for mobile

devices could feel the shock

waves from Apple's billion

dollar win over Samsung in

the Californian courtroom.

In the world of tech this is

a really big deal because it

comes down to this he said,

she said, who created

something. The jury agreed

that Apple created software

for onscreen actions like

pinching and zooming and

design features like the

iPhone's rounded corners and

the arrangement of icons on

the screen. For a lot of

other cell phone makers they

may have to rethink how to

design phones and tablets.

Google, maker of the android

software, including those

made by Samsung. Android

phones now outsell iPhones by

three to one. The Apple says

the verdict sends a loud and clear message stealing isn't

right. Samsung called the

verdict a loss for the

American consumer, which

could bring potentially

higher prices. The company

says it will appeal. For now

at least the affected product

will remain on the shelves.

This isn't the only legal

clash between app p aand

Samsung. A judge in South

Korea yesterday reached a

split decision in a similar

patent case. The two

technology giants are

quarter before the Cats

regained their composure to

ease to a 34 point victory.

Matthew Pavlich was a late

withdrawal for Fremantle with

a groin injury. He was

quickly joined on the

sideline by Kepler Bradley

but the Dockers had no

problems with North Melbourne

in the opening quarter. And

off a step, oh, that's a big

turnover. The Roos came to

life and closed to within a

goal but all the life was

falling Fremantle's way.

Does he get a foot to it? He

does. He's kicked two. The

al-Arabi have beaten

Parramatta 38-6 in the NRL

this afternoon. Earlier the

Tigers' finals hopes are now hanging by a thread after a

dis appointing loss to the

Roosters. Anthony Minichiello received a

special welcome. For the

Tigers this was a must win

but the home side got off to

an ideal start. Frank Paul Nuuausala scored the first

try of the afternoon before

Daniel Tupou climb ed above

Matthew Utai. Back-to-back

tries. Liam Fulsom missed

most of the first half with a

sprained wrist while the

Roosters could do no wrong.

Robbie Farah watched on

helplessly after the Roosters

opened up a 26-0 lead. The

video ref said no obstruction

here before the milestone man

got his try. Here's the pass

from Mitchell Pearce. The

Tigers' finals hopes now

hanging by a thread and Benji

Marshall could be in strife

for his high shot on Jared

with a reara Hargreaves.

Australia will now turn its

attention to South Africa in

the reg baoe championship

after another dis appointing

outing against the

Australians. The -- All

Blacks. The last night at

Eden Park the Aussies were kept scoreless for the first

time in 50 years against the

All Blacks. A classic Kiwi

black out at Eden Park and

the mood of their team

matched. Just a pocket of

gold stood between the home

side and another Bledisloe

series win. If looks could

kill, the Aussies were dead

men walking. The attacks came

early. Adam Ashley-Cooper

holding the Wallabies back

line. It forced the home side

to the boot of Dan Carter and

he provided first points.

This was a far bigger blow.

It's a yellow card for the

Australian captain. Genia

gone with his hand in this.

The blaks 9 doctor 0

half-time lead really should

have been more, and after the

break it was. 22-0 the

Wallaby carve up coming from those opposite and from

within as simple errors mound

up. The Kiwis only suffered

from white line fever and

even the All Blacks skipper

had a touch of it. But the scoreboard was already crook

enough as far as the

Wallabies were concerned,

kept scoreless by New Zealand

for the first time since

1962. While the Cup stays

across the Tasman for a 10th

straight year. Very dis

appointing. We got touched

up. Composure, homeding your

nerve, just overall

toughness. Too much pace,

#340ur accuracy -- power,

accuracy, they're a team

that's bigger than best. New

Zealand's Garden of Eden

still a Wallabies grave yard. Liverpool will be

aiming to move off the bottom

of the Premier League ladder.

The match between Surnled

land and Reading was cancelled overnight due to

heavy rain. There were wins

for Wigan, Everton, Swans

see, Chelsea downed Newcastle

at home. New signing Robin

van Persie opened his account

for United scoring in the 3-2

victory. Van Persie! He

introduces himself to the

Manchester United support

with a sumptuous goal. But

the win was marred by a nasty

leg injury to star striker

Wayne Rooney who's been ruled

out for up to a month after

suffering a deep cut on his right thigh.

right thigh. A champion

leader Jorge Lorenzo has

gained poll position care of

some blistering laps. It

would have been an all yam ah

front row had it not been for

Dani Pedrosa flying finish.

However not before the

Spaniard came him a huge

fright. Pedrosa fell heavily

before later rejoining on a

spare bike. No dramas for

Jorge Lorenzo who lowered the

track record to claim poll.

Traitens up the yam ah, fires

it down the straight, what a

lap! He's in the box seat to

extend his championship lead.

Of course we'll find out if

that happens later on

tonight. The satellite

first of all scattered cloud

over Tasmania and Victoria is

bringing showers and mountain

snow. Patchy cloud over

eastern Queensland with a low

pressure trough is causing a

few showers while skies are mostly clear elsewhere.
