They spent a lot of time talking about global economic conditions, especially the weakness from the from the europ zone. So highlighting especially the weakness from the p the down risk. So for homeowners and anyone looking to get a home, you can look at the data and say while the Reserve Bank kept rates on hold, there is a possibility they will cut rates over the next month.

It tops off an exciting week for the young athlete who's won a gold, silver and bronze in the pool. I love those smiles. A gorgeous photo. Not bad at 13. How do you top that? Hey? On a more serious note, road safety. A range of options are being considered by the Victorian Government to cut the road toll. Among the ideas are restricting all new cars to a top speed of 140km/h and reducing the current .05 alcohol limit. Also on the cards - a 10:00pm to 7:00am curfew for drivers under 25. Plus, encouraging those over 75 to either cut back or give up their driving. And fines for cyclists who disobey road rules could be made, the same as those for motorists. So would these work or are there other things that should be done to reduce the road toll? Tell us what you think. Quite a wide range up for discussion? Yeah. It comes up all the time, but I think driver training is still the biggest you can do to fix the road toll, teach young people how to manage training is still the biggest thing

their cars and situations and recover from bad spots. Any race car driver will tell you that is where they get into trouble. I agree, but you still have idiots who drink and drive and go 50 kays over the speed limit. But you can never legislate for that. Although a federal election isn't due for 12 months, there's speculation of an early poll. 'The Sydney Morning Herald' says the Gillard government has set up a special committee to come up with policy ideas by next month. The 'Herald Sun' reports pollies on both sides have received an increase to their travel allowance. They'll get an extra $525 a year to go to Canberra. Maybe smokers will help to foot the bill. 'The West Australian' reports the budget could get a boost of more than $1 billion a year under a proposal to increase the price of cigarettes to $20 a packet. What if you smoke a pack a day? tmz.com has a photo of Prince Philip at the Highland Games. He's wearing a kilt. And, according to TMZ, he's just hanging out with the Queen. We haven't seen the original photo. We're not sure we even want to see the original photo. So we're taking TMZ's word on this one. But do Scottish blokes really wear nothing under their kilt? Or is it just a myth, like the Loch Ness Monster? So all you Scots out there, let us know. Do you really want the answer? It is a cold country. I would have thought you would want a little protection, wouldn't you? Shrinkage. I actually have a bit of Scottish heritage in me, my grandfather, so I'm going to call a few people and sort it out. You don't know? I know they are a very brave bunch. Brave at heart? There you go. And 'Lou the Lip' is giving some more lip. Former Collingwood player and retired commentator Lou Richards has criticised the AFL for not making him a Hall of Fame Legend. several years ago, He's just released a new autobiography and he says it would've been pointless taking second prize. So, does Lou Richards deserve Hall of Fame Legend status and should he be demanding inclusion? I think he deserves to be. I think so. But is it up to him to ask? Should it be up to colleagues to ask, " ask, "What about Lou?". ask, "What about Lou?".. You don't demand recognition. He should have gone the sideway and asked a meat. Knocking back the Hall of Fame, now the AFL said stick it. But here is a guy who has given his life to footy. If you don't ask, you never know. Made a few calls. Easy. News headlines are next and today's Cash Cow code word.

We needed to find something that we could afford to pay. So I rang around, and found that Apia was the best for us. That's terrific. Thank you for that. Oh, that's alright. It was a pleasure.

A severe weather warning today, and high fire danger. with strong winds It's just one of the cities copping it at the moment.

You wouldn't know looking at that picture. Let's cross now to Josh Holt at the Weather Channel for more. Let's start in New South Wales, where a fire ban's in place for large parts of the state and damaging winds are expected. We are talking about 27 degrees the top today? Yes, that's right, Mel. We've got some very powerful and warm north-westerly winds ripping across part of New South Wales rocking your world today. That is why a severe weather warning has been issued for the entire with the exception of the been issued for the entire state north-east. It could exceed 100km/h but for the alpine areas there is a risk of 150km/h, that is strong enough to bring down trees and power lines but in some circumstances, roofs and properties. Tell me South Australia and Victoria? Also roofs and properties. Tell me about severe weather warnings there? What conditions are expected? Very similar to New South Wales. In fact, a powerful cold front is moving across South Australia right now, bringing severe weather for the south. Warnings are issued for South Australia and Victoria, where we could see alpine gusts in Victoria of 140km/h. For it the more populated areas, 100km/h and New South Wales, strong enough to populated areas, 100km/h and like bring down trees and power lines. Mt William has seen a gust of 100 tlounkm/h -- 100 I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but a second cold front, similar to the one we saw yesterday, that will penetrate the south-west of WA again. So we can expect to see small hail in some areas and also a second lashing of galeforce winds right across the south-west. This frontal system is expected to arrive for the south-west late this morning. It will travel through the south-west for the afternoon and for tonight in Perth. The good news is, the weather will calm down across Western Australia as we get through Thursday and Friday this week. I am glad you finished it with good news. I am alarmed. Thank you for bringing us up to date, right across the country. Cheers. A controversial plan text messages and online use to keep and store your emails, for two years has Federal Government support. Attorney-General Nicola Roxon says police and security agencies need to access the data in order to do their jobs properly. She also believes access email and text messages could provide critical evidence leading to criminal arrests. Not surprisingly, the proposal has plenty of opposition, including from Greens Senator Scott Ludlam who joins us now from Perth. Scott, is this plan driven by unjustified paranoia? Of catching crims or terrorists? I think what it is driven by, ultimately if you go back to it are legitimate concerns for law enforcement. If enforcement. If you go back to basics there is a legitimate need to update police powers. The problem is I see it as overkill. The have been asked, " have been asked, "Give us I see it as overkill. The police everything." And this is what come out with. Unfortunately, it is completely out of balance now and everything." And this is what we've

there is no commenceiert privacy protections. But the authorities have put in an ambit claim, the government said yes, ratter than saying hey, maybe pull back a bit. How can we be guaranteed our e-mail and text exchanges won't be accessed by hackers? They seem to get into government data bases all We can't guarantee it at all. We are government data bases all the time? creating enormously valuable data sets, because you are talking about texts and e-mail. Smart phones will down load information down to 10s of metres. It is prive data, not just your calls and e-mails but the cloud of meta data that surrounds everything we do online. Do we know what agencies will have access to the e-mails and texts? Will it just be the thin edge of the wedge? Look, a huge number of agencies already have access to this kine of stuff. It is just a lot of it isn't being stored. So, for example, you assume the police, the federal police, but also the Tax Office, agencies and a large number of other also the Tax Office, welfare agencies are already accessing the limited number of material that exists, thus far. So what would you like to see happen? I would like to see us go back to basics. For 100 years in democracies, the idea has basically prevailed that if you want, inagencies want to snoop on people's private activity, you need a warrant from a magistrate, you need to be targetting a serious crime and it needs to be named individuals. What we are seeing here is proposal to flow a surveillance

blanket across the entire population, real-time Millie second surveillance of every person in case we turn out to be criminals. I would like to see a couple of things. The committee needs to do work with no further preemptive comments from the Attorney-General and everyone else because it is disrespectful from the parliamentary committee. But the second thing is we go back to basics. What are the tools the police agencies need and give them the tools but no further. I think it is highly significant that the Victorian police commissioner said these powers will be characteristic of a police state. Victorian police commissioner has

OK, Scott, keep us up to date on it. Appreciate it. Here is Nat. The start of spring and plenty of sunshine are making winter a fading memory. So we sent Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells to Melbourne's Spring Fashion Week to see what we should be wearing as the weather warms up. (music plays) . It's a tough assignment, but someone has to do it. Day two of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week saw some of Australia's hottest designers showcasing their spring-summer collections. Melbourne model Annaleise Smith is the face of Fashion Week. Discovered at the age of 15 by a talent scout at a Melbourne train station, Annaleise has gone on to enjoy a hugely successful international career. She helped me out with a few key trends for this season. A lot of bold colours but also there's the pastels, which is a great contrast to the bold colours. Silver and lots of sequins. You'll notice heaps of sequins. Aussie hair stylist to the stars, Kevin Murphy, is also in town for Fashion Week. He's worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Vanessa Hudgens and Heidi Klum. Hair and makeup defines you a lot more than what your clothes do. A lot of the clothes are pretty much the same every year.

What makes you groovier is the hair and make-up. And the glamour wasn't just on the catwalk. Plenty of fashionable folks turned out to see what's our designers have to offer. Every night during Fashion Week is the designer series where the designers get to push the envelope a little bit. During the daytime shows it's all about accessible fashion which any of us might wear. This year though, for the first time there's a show dedicated exclusively to the one thing most women obsess about even more than clothes - shoes. Well, I did say most women.

Hello again. I should have known something was up this morning when my bronzer was in the boys' dressing room. Miranda Kerr will be here a little later on. Like that? A cravat? Go the whole hog. A botie. No, you look like a goose. Tighter. What's different? Busy morning in news, here is Busy morning in news, here is Nat. The bodies of five Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan last week will arrive home today. Last night, the family of Private Nathaneal Galagher, who was killed in a chopper crash, released a statement saying: The fiancee of Lance Corporal Mervyn McDonald, who was also killed in the chopper crash, also released a statement describing him as simply amazing, with an infectious personality. In Afghanistan, a $5,000 reward is being offered for the Afghan soldier who shot dead three Australian diggers. Wanted posters are being distributed throughout Uruzgan province asking for information. Victorian public school teachers are striking today sending the plans of thousands of families into chaos. Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells joins me now. Good morning. Nick, do we know how many schools will be affected? Huge number of schools, Nat. We're talking about 400 schools, teachers and staff of which will be talking about 400 schools, these rallying here at Rod Laver Arena today. One of the biggest in the state's history, we are talking 35,000 public school teachers and principals, 4,000 Catholic teachers and support staff from principals, 4,000 Catholic school schools. The teachers are in dispute with the State Government over pay teachers and support staff from the

and conditions. They want a 30% pay rise in three years, a reduction in the number of short term contracts for teachers and maximum class sizes of 20. They are a long way apart from what the government is offering which is 2.5% which is 2.5%. The teachers are also angry over ads taken out by State Government on the weekend angry over ads taken out by the suggesting parents should take their kids to school today and the schools have a duty of care to look after them. The teachers think that is irresponsible. As far as we know, not a lot of parents are going to be taking the government's advice on that one. Be supervision though, that one. Be supervision though,? Parents? Look, there will be some supervision but if all the kids turn up to all the schools there is no way they can properly look after them so the parents are saying keep the kids home. Thank you, Nick. A young child is receiving urgent medical care in a Melbourne hospital this morning after being found badly dehydrated at an apartment in Yarraville. The body of a woman was also found in the flat. Police are yet to determine the exact cause of her death but its thought to have occurred several days ago. A crime scene has been established at the home and police are appealing to the public for any information. A tattoo shop believed to be linked to an outlaw motorcycle gang has been extensively damaged by a fire in Sydney's west overnight. Firefighters and police arrived at the Blacktown tattoo parlour to find it well alight just after 11:00 last night. They managed to stop the flames before they spread to neighbouring businesses. Police are treating the blaze as suspicious. There's a scare for users of Apple products this morning with a newspaper report saying hackers have accessed millions of identification numbers for iPhones and iPads. US correspondent Angela Cox joins us now. Angela how much of a security threat is this? Good morning, Nat Good morning, Nat. One tech blog has called this the worst privacy disaster ever, basically the hackers have gained access to 12 million ID numbers, it links your iPhone or iPad to the iTunes account. On its own it is pretty useless to hackers but the group say they have personal information, names, addresses, connected to the ID numbers. They say they got these numbers by

hacking into an FBI agent's computer and hey say the biggest -- they say the biggest concern is what is the FBI doing with the information. The FBI say they are aware and are not commenting. We are not sure whether it is contained to the US or whether Australians are affected as well. Thank you for the update. The stars of the NRL graced the red carpet outside Sydney's Town Hall last night for rugby league's most glamorous night. But it was their wives and girlfriends who stole the limelight, showing off fancy frocks, dazzling diamonds and a fair bit of flesh. Canterbury full-back Ben Barba took the night's top award - the Dally M Medal while Des Hasler was named the competition's top coach. Ahead on Sunrise - should young drivers be kept off the road at night to help cut the road toll? But first, here's Kochie. Thank you, Nat. Just checking no-one has hacked my iPad. Let's look at the markets now,

at one stage. It at one stage. It was an awful night Dow was down 55 points and down 200 following an awful night on Europe because figures showed manufacturing, basically, around the world is still contracting. All-, consumer sentiment in America is down. Not looking so good. A lot of bad news at the moment. If you are follower of Warren Buffett rr, he says buy in bad news, when the market is fearful, you get greedy. Take a look at this, this is Bank of America's consensus indicator. It measures the number of cell sig -- sell signals from analysts and bad media reports. Look how it has dropped off a cliff since the start of the year. If you are contrarian, buy straw hats in winter, everyone is so scared and so panicked, is a signal to be bullish on stocks is so scared and so panicked, that and start buying. Whether it turns out that way, get your own advice, but it is a fascinating chart. To commodities: The Reserve Bank kept our interest rates on hold yesterday. The Reserve Bank kept our official Time for sport with Beretts. Thanks, Kochie, save that chart for Miranda Kerr, she will be keen to go through that. Impress her with your charts. That is it! Would you like to come and see my charts? Exactly. The Canterbury Bulldogs have cleaned up at the Dally M Awards at Sydney's Town Hall last night. Des Hasler was named the NRL's top coach while full-back Ben Barba picked up five awards including the coveted Dally M Medal. I'd like to thank my family as well, my partner Ainslie, down there, and my two little daughters back home, they're the...I guess, the reason why I do this and the reason why I wanna be who I am. The 23-year-old finished 6 points ahead of runner-up Matt Bowen from the North Queensland Cowboys. 3-time premiership coach Mick Malthouse is expected to sign a 3-year deal worth more than $3 million to coach the Blues next year. An official announcement could be made early next week and Malthouse also confirmed Carlton's interest in signing Pies forward Travis Cloke. In other news, Geelong star Steve Johnson accepted his 1-match ban for his hit on Daniel Hannebery. Swans key defender Heath Grundy lost his fight against a striking charge. Sydney will take on Adelaide without him.

Australia's Sam Stosur has lost her US Open quarterfinal match to world number one Victoria Azarenka. The Aussie only won one game in the first set but rallied to claim the second set. Our Sam was able to mix it with the noisy Azarenka in the third, sending it to a nerve-wrecking tie-break, which Azarenka won 7-5. And Australia's golden moments at the Paralympics just keep getting better with swim star Jacqueline Freeney taking gold in the 50m freestyle S7 event. She stole the win in record time and claimed her sixth gold medal. Well, the only real secret is hard work and dedication to my sport. Also in the swimming, Brenden Hall set the world record in the men's 400m freestyle S9 event. In the basketball, Australia and Holland are the first two countries to book their place in the semifinals of the women's tournament. We now have a total of 52 medals, including 18 gold. Rheed McCracken picked up the bronze medal last night. We will look at that in full in say, 15 minutes Terrific. Let's go back to Grant, dodging? I am still here, Sydney Markets, always questionable with this amount of activity and forklift action. I believe we still have Frank cam, the camera on his forklift. To give you a bird's-eye view when the markets are in full swing. We named his forklift the 'Widow Maker' because it is so deadly. When you look at the beautiful fruit in season, tomatoes, these are... Mate! What beautiful fruit in season, the you doing, this is too expensive, buddy. It costs a lot of money. Be careful. I'd watch it, if I can were you. Come on, you got to pay for that. They are very strict with their food. We sure are. The one thing they are generous with David, is their generosity when it comes to charity. (laughs) charity. (laughs). This is the first batch of mangos for the year. This is the golden prize that is going up for auction in about 20-odd minutes or so. And they are, look at this... Let me smell those bad boys... Let me smell those bad boys.... Isn't that summer, Mel? You do it better than me, mate. Axhhh. Hang on. Don't fall. Let's look at the weather. Sunrise weather to you by Claratyne. Well, Frank cam, he is out there on 'Widow Maker', the forklift that is covering up the traffic. We have seen so many near knds, it is extraordinary. It just works. It is organised chaos that just works. I don't know if you have been somewhere like China or Japan where you see thousands of bicycles on the don't know if you have been to

roads, it just works, somehow. Forget about the mangos for a second, take a couple of these home for your wife. Thank you, every isbeautiffuuull out here! Ceremonies will be held in Brisbane and Sydney today as the bodies of five soldiers killed last week in Afghanistan return home. Two diggers died in a helicopter crash while the remaining three were shot and killed by a rogue Afghan soldier. As 10,000 reward posters featuring a photo of the gunman are distributed more details are emerging about what happened. News Limited is reporting the diggers were playing cards in a tent when they were gunned down. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper joins us now from Brisbane. While Edwina Bartholomew is at Sydney's Richmond base. Michelle, the soldiers' families will be attending today's service. Yes, they will, Mel. They have been involved in a lot of the details regarding the service. So it is expected to be a private and fairly intimate affair. No dignitaries or politicians have been invited. But the chief of the army will be here. And heavily involved in the services today. Stjepan Milosevic leaves behind a wife and two young daughters who are today. 41-year-old Lance Corporal

His partner issued a statement saying: Also, a statement too overnight from the fiancee of mufrben MacDonald, mrarp planning to marry in Bendigo and wanting to start a family after that. Mel, we hear from politicians, we hear arguments whether we should be in Afghanistan, but it is not until you hear the personal stories and see the photos that a tragedy like this really comes home. The service here will start at around 11:30, the same time as the one in Brisbane. Yes, there will be family and friends hurting today. Thank you. The parents of thousands of Victorian schoolchildren are making other arrangements today as their teachers go on strike. Up to 40,000 teachers, principals and support staff will walk off the job. They want a 30% pay rise over three years and better job security. It's expected to be the biggest state-wide strike in Victoria's teaching history. Joining me now is the Victorian President of the Australian Education Union, Mary Bluett. Good morning. Mary, are you expecting most of the 40,000 school staff to show up? Well, we expect over 35,000 people will actually stop work for the day due to the tirany of distance, not all will turn up at the rod hraefrb arena. But we expect the stadium to be full. 209 schools have indicated they will be closed today, across the state. The State Government is offering 2. offering 2.5% annual pay rise. You want 30% over three years. That is a big gap. How big gap. How come you are claiming so much. The claim is drawn up on the back of a pledge from the Victorian premier to make the teachthers best paid. As with any negotiations, you go in with a claim and you negotiate around it. The outcome is somewhere between the 10% and the 2. and the 2.5% that the Government is currently offering. What would you be happy with? Well, it will be up to the members but the bottom line is... You're advising them though, what do you reckon is a reasonable ballpark? 3. ballpark? 3.5% ballpark? 3.5%? 4% ballpark? 3.5%? 4%? We need an outcome to put us at least ahead New South Wales, where we share a long border. That is a 3. outcome to put us at least ahead of

long border. That is a 3.5% increase. Also, I think there is a bit of will from the members that the premier has to make good to a degree, at least, on the pledge and move towards making Victorian teachers, if not the highest paid, the second highest paid in the nation. Thank you for joining us. Here is Nat. Barack Obama's Presidential re-election campaign will hit top gear this week at the Democratic Party's convention. He'll address the party faithful at the end of the week. Before then, delegates will hear from former president Bill Clinton while First Lady Michelle Obama will open the convention today. NBC News reporter Steve Handelsman joins us now from Charlotte, North Carolina. Steve, how important is Michelle Obama to her husband's re-election? Could be pretty important, nat ale. It is hard to gauge these things and measure them but what Democrats want to in this election, which is only three days, focused on Michelle Obama's speech tonight, Bill Clinton's speech tomorrow and Barack Obama's speech the day after, in a big stadium, the same thing when he won the Democratic nomination, they want to fire up the base and get swing voters, independent undecided voters many who voted swing voters, independent voters, Barack Obama last time but not so undecided voters many who voted for sure this time, to get off the fence, and a big turn out. If they think there is a big turnout they'll win big. It is a big effort win big. It is a big effort here in Charlotte, which started about 15 minutes ago. Eva Longoria and the stars of the 'Harold & Kumar' films are expected to attend. The Democrats are calling in the star power, aren't they? A bit more, but I don't think it matters. What matters is jobs and whether voters will watch the big speech, Thursday night, and say, " speech, Thursday night, and say, "Weal Rr give that guy a chance to try for four more years or we're going to fire him." That's what it boils down to. That's the latest from Charlotte, back to you in Sydney. Fascinating couple of days. Here is Mel. A 48-year-old Melbourne mother has defied the odds, giving birth to Victoria's first quintuplets in more than 30 years. But it was always going to be a risky delivery and unfortunately there were complications. Two boys and three girls were born by Caesarean section at one 1:00 yesterday. But sadly, one of the babies, a little girl, died just a day before the delivery. The surviving four babies are being cared for around the clock in the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit. A team of around 30 specialists were on hand for the historical medical event. Sunrise GP Dr Ginni Mansberg joins me now. Good morning. How rare are quintuplets? Particularly to a woman of 48? The statistics are one in 55 million. So a very lucky, fertile lady, number 16 now, she had 12 already, amazing. So one baby passed away before they were born. What sort were born. What sort of risks are there associated with carrying this many children? Look, we very rarely get them close to therm. They are born premature and with that there are a number of complications for the babies. During pregnancy, is a risk of maternal diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure. But the babies. During pregnancy, there

if they can get through this very rocky road, the next few weeks and months, things should be good. Things have improved for premature babies. 32 weeks, we know is premature, I kind of thought that is further than I had expectd? Yes, it just shows the standard of maternal care now because they identify these little ones so early. She would have had a team of specialists looking after her through the pregnancy and monitoring the babies. Will they be in neo natal care for eight weeks longer? It depends on the in neo natal care for eight weeks or complications. We keep them in hospital until the due date, but there is problems with the bowels and the lungs we tend to see with these little ones. They do respond well to medical care but it is a rough road. Too early to tell? 30 years ago when the last set of quintuplets were born, they didn't make it but things have remain improved since then. The mother wanting to remain anonymous, we don't have a lot of information. But see you soon. We have been so excited overnight. Here on Sunrise we've been following the progress of young Bundaberg wheelchair athlete Rheed McCracken. Early this morning, the 15-year-old took to the track in his wheelchair in the 200m final.

Australian aircraft could be given rapid clearance to fly through Indonesian airspace as part of a plan to better locate asylum seeker boats in distress. The measure was raised at talks in Jakarta yesterday in response to a spate of incidents including the suspected drowning deaths of 100 refugees last week. Ministers have agreed to a 6-point plan to improve search-and-rescue capabilities. What we've also discovered as a potential improvement to the practical cooperation is the capacity, potentially, for search-and-rescue planes to land and refuel in Indonesia. As part of the bi-lateral cooperation Australia will provide Indonesia with improved satellite communication and better ship-tracking technology. 400 Victorian schools are set to close today as teachers launch their biggest strike action in the state's history. Up to 40,000 teachers, principals and support staff will walk off the job over an ongoing pay dispute. The union is demanding a 30% pay rise over 3 years but the Government says that would cost taxpayers $14 billion. The Premier has to make good on a pledge and move towards making Victorian teachers the highest paid in the nation. The Education Department says children who are sent to school will be supervised. A child has been rushed to hospital after being found badly dehydrated in an apartment in the Melbourne suburb of Yarraville. The body of a woman was also found in the flat.
