Logies so you never know. We are not

sure about that. We will check on

that later. Very quickly let's look

at today's forecast. Bassingthwaighte's number one album, Sunrise weather for Natalie '1000 Stars' - this Mother's Day. make it music for Mum

- moving right along. And then, the personal information we should never hand out even if the caller or company seems legitimate. But next, the rise of daylighting - people doing work on the side on their bosses' time. Find out if you're on of them when Sunrise continues.

Nuala has the details at 6:40. Right now, though, Nat's been checking the papers.

The change in climate for the Government's carbon plan is on the front page. 'The Australian' says it's a Rudd "backflip", with the PM stepping back from an election pledge to start it next year. Meantime, the Sydney 'Morning Herald' puts a Roman twist

on the situation. It says, "Carbon bill burns as Rudd fiddles". The 'Courier-Mail' has a story

on a new work term called "daylighting". It's replaced moonlighting, with one in four employees now working another job while they're at work for someone else. Who has the time for that? Would you admit to stealing work time for another job?

Know anyone involved? We don't leave

the desk for three hours. It is not

what sort of car he is driving

today? Aston Martin! A Lara Bingle

car. It is being auctioned off for

charity and they asked me if I would

like to get a feel for it. The life of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi just gets more interesting. Remember how he's headed for divorce for his roving eye? His wife said he made time for an 18-year-old's birthday party but missed his own children's celebrations. This is the young woman, Noemi. The 'Daily Telegraph' says Berlusconi wants an apology from his wife for her public complaints about him. We'll get more on this when we cross to Europe next hour.

I love Silvio. I just think he is

sensational. He is just a classic.

He comes out with all sorts of

different things. He is a gem. More

on him later and his jobs. Do we value a good-looking lawn these days? The MCG does. It's using a $2 million lighting system to give the turf a boost. The grass has a little wear and tear so mobile lighting rigs will stimulate growth. But we want to know - do Aussie blokes still care about their lawn?

With all the water restrictions and busy lives, do people still spend time making their lawn like an outdoor carpet?

Nick our floor manager nodding

fiercely here. What did the old man do when you were a kid? Let us know.

You value your lawn? The edges of

the lawn was never above or below a

certain length. It was kept green.

Had a lawnmower. In Port Adelaide

you get the nail scissors out.

Fantastic. I remember my dad would

sit at the dinner table and see a

weed and go out and pick it. It

looked nice. Peel just pay for it

now. All the Jim's Mowing Service

and you just pay for it because it

is reasonable. Give us some of the

secrets of a carpet lawn. It can't

be that plastic stuff. What do you

do? Some of the tricks from your

dad. Cutting too low. You got to

keep a bit there. Still to come - the teenage girl who's going under the knife to look more like a boy. And later - one couple's experiment between the sheets.

What sex every night of the year did for their relationship. But straight ahead - something else to get Kochie interested - the finance report. We're live to New York as good housing sales push the market higher. This is Sunrise on Seven.

America has rejected the recession.

The Dow up 216 points. Let's go live to the US with Scott Wapner, a CBNC finance reporter. Housing sales in the US are up. What was the market expecting?

The market was expecting no gain at

all. It was a pending home sales

report up 3. report up 3.2%

report up 3.2%. These are contracts

that are signed, not closing. It is

good that we work through the

inventories which are a big problem

in the housing market. The S&P is

positive for the year on the

positive finish. The S&P on 907. A

big day and finished well. We had

different home figures here. It is

is an interesting contrast. Warren Buffett talked up the economy at the weekend?

35,000 shareholders went along to

hear the great man speak. The

Woodstock of capitalism is how they

refer to it. Buffett said the

economy is slow and says it will

turn around but can't say when. He

biggest US banks to see if they are

solvent or not. Checking the rest of the markets - The sharemarket closed at a record high for the year yesterday. The delay in the Government's carbon emissions trading scheme boosted investor confidence. Just ahead - we'll meet the small businesses rejecting the recession and expanding. But next this morning's news and today's weather.

Then, the serial offender caught out by a hidden camera. The remarkable whodunit is coming up, later on Sunrise. There's absolutely nothing like the smell of toast in the morning. That's why I make sure I get to Woolies and get a fresh loaf first thing. Nice creamy butter and some honey. The honey... I steal that. (LAUGHS) They're none too pleased this morning.

To enter, just collect today's code word: And here are our lucky winners from Monday - If your name's on the screen, congratulations.

What a great birthday present. Every

bloke here asked us to look up on Charla. You might have read about Charla Muller. She gave her husband a birthday present he'll never forget - 365 nights of guaranteed sex. We've tracked her down and we'll talk to her later in the show. But in the meantime, we want to hear about presents with a twist. What's the best present you've given or received? Maybe you're like Charla. Email or SMS us.

That was purely - Wishful thinking.

Can we talk about lawns? What is the

best present John's ever given you?

I can't think right now. I am a

little clouded. I was going to read

emails about thoughts - I mean

lawns! You are a bit rattled. Of all

the slip-ups - he has been walking

around it all morning and excited

that we are covering this story. Nat

is not amused. I don't want to hear

about that in the morning, to be

honest. I don't like the topic. If

you can just do a couple more

buttons up. I will. We have a lot to cover. when world leaders end up in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. But right now here's Nat with the 6:30 update. A motorcyclist is fighting for his life in Melbourne's Alfred Hospital after crashing into a car on the Princes Freeway last night. Ambulance officers say the rider suffered severe head and chest injuries. When intensive care paramedics arrived it was quite chaotic, as you can imagine. There was quite a few bystanders who assisting this gentleman in his 30s. And an 18-year-old driver was taken to hospital with neck injuries after crashing his car into a pole in Melbourne's east. The Rudd Government has been accused of making a hollow promise by suggesting it will cut carbon emissions by 25%.

Kevin Rudd says the ambitious target could be met if there's world agreement at December's climate change conference in Copenhagen. The Government knows that's nigh on impossible that that's going to occur and, you know, it's a hollow promise it's a hollow guarantee. The Government has delayed its emission trading scheme by 12 months because of the worsening global economy. The latest Newspoll shows Kevin Rudd is well ahead in the preferred Prime Minister stakes. 64% of voters support him compared to just 19% for Malcolm Turnbull.

Labor's two-party preferred vote has fallen by three percentage points in a fortnight. But the Government still has a sizeable lead over the Coalition which remains on 45%. The Reserve Bank board is expected to take a wait-and-see approach to interest rates

when it meets today. Most economists believe there's no reason for the RBA to raise or lower rates

despite confirmation Australia is in recession. The official cash rate is at a 49-year low of 3% after last month's 0.25% cut. Time for sport now with Beretts. Hawthorn's Simon Taylor is facing his second suspension this season after being charged with rough conduct by AFL's Match Review Panel.

Taylor is risking a 3-match ban if he goes to the tribunal. Collingwood forward John Anthony can accept a 1-match ban for headbutting North Melbourne defender Scott McMahon. Friday night's New South Wales City versus Country clash could shape the 2009 New South Wales State Of Origin team. Anthony Laffranchi, Kurt Gidley, Terry Campese, Glenn Stewart and Paul Gallen appear to have already cemented their places. That leaves 12 spots in the Blues pack still up for grabs. Robbie Farah and Michael Ennis will go head to head for the number nine jersey

while Jarrod Mullen and Peter Wallace are vying for the halfback's job. Former Aussie opener Matthew Hayden has put in another solid effort for the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League overnight. The IPL's top run scorer hit 43 off just 26 balls to steer the kings to a 78-run win over Adam Gilchrist's Deccan Chargers. M.S. Dohni was also impressive with his unbeaten 58 in the Kings' total of 3/173. Deccan's run chase was disastrous. They lost both openers Gilchrist and Herschelle Gibbs

in the first two overs. And Lebron James has picked up the NBA's Most Valuable Player Award. He's the first ever Cleveland Cavaliers player to win the award. Lebron also finished second in voting for Defensive Player of the Year making him perhaps the league's most dominant two-way player since Michael Jordan.

A few showers forecast tomorrow and Thursday, but dry on Friday. Sydney, a shower or two clearing later with a top of 20 degrees. Dry and mild over the coming days. A partly cloudy day over Melbourne and 18. Patchy showers and 17 degrees through until Saturday. Adelaide, partly cloudy and 18. A shower or two tomorrow then dry and 19 on Thursday. Clear sky over Perth and 28 today. Much the same for the rest of the week. Fine and cool in Canberra. Dry and 15 in Hobart with a few showers for Thursday. Hot in Darwin. And for the latest weather at your place all day:

Macca you are training the boys

Macca you are training the boys here. We got the boys in rehab and

you got a no-shirts off policy here.

Any chance we could relax that? Yes,

that done this morning. Look at the

size of his arm. If he said drop and do size of his arm. If he said drop and

And later - the story every guy in this office wanted us to follow up. We'll meet the woman who gave her husband 365 nights of sex for his birthday. Up next, though, Madonna's battle in Malawi and the Hoff's battle with the bottle. Nuala hits the E-Spot when Sunrise continues.

will be walking in five minutes beforehand. Madonna has been battling in a Malawi court overnight. She's trying to adopt for the second time.

She is not giving up on that. The Chief Justice of Malawi's Supreme Court adjourned the latest hearing in Madonna's mission to adopt Mercy. He's set to rule at a later date. The 'Material Girl' wasn't in court this time around

but she's probably keeping an eye on a new twist in the case. Doubt has been cast over Mercy's paternity. Her family claims they've never met the man who's been trying to stop the adoption while claiming to be her father. In happier news, it's been revealed that Maggie Gyllenhaal has married Peter Sarsgaard over the weekend. The happy couple tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Italy. Maggie's brother Jake and his girlfriend Reese Witherspoon

were there to share the occasion. David Hasselhoff is playing down reports he was hospitalised over the weekend suffering from alcohol poisoning. The Hoff was found by his 16-year-old daughter but his reps say he was discharged quickly after the incident. For more on that, let's go to Nelson Aspen in New York. Good morning. Nelson, the Hoff entered rehab in 2007. Is this slip a surprise?

Not to me, unfortunately. He did go

to the hospital. They can downplay

Let's ask our new sports duo his sister Rebecca from Vega FM. Jim is back, this time with Good morning to you both. Jim, was Freddy out of order?

I think he was. I think we are too

blasting. He went too far saying

that his club the Roosters have been

victimised. That is where David

Gallop said we don't mind you

complaining about the referees but

if you think there is a conspiracy,

we won't cop that. We have become

we can't criticise the officials, I

love all that stuff. If Jeff Kennett

Jeff Kennett. I hate to live without

a Jeff Kennett and a Freddy. Vi changed your mind!

changed your mind!? I can't believe

this. Let's move on to the next one.

We won't agree on this one. Moving on, if Wayne Carey will be inducted in a couple of weeks we'll know into the AFL Hall of Fame.

Should we let him?

Should we let him in? If others who

have criminal convictions, Wayne

Carey should go in. We got to get

the guidelines absolutely clear.

Those with criminal convictions have

gone in. The door should be open for gone in. The door should be open

Wayne Carey. I am not condoning his

off-field behaviour. He is trying to

turn his life around. No, I think he

should be in the Hall of Fame. Bec,

should we wait a couple years? No,

because others have set the

precedent it doesn't make the

precedent right. He shouldn't be

sitting alongside the greats of the

game. We got the best and fairest in

the haul of came. It is the pinnacle

of the game. You look at Barassi and

some amazing names. Kids won't know

that Wayne Carey was a bad egg off some amazing names. Kids won't know

the field and they should. For the

benefit of history and the benefit

of future generations, they should

keep pristine players in there. Gary

Ablett is not pristine. I am not

going to name other individuals. It

doesn't make it right. He is not the

right person to put into the Hall of

Fame. I know he was a great player

but it is not good enough. The other thing was

thing was, he remained pretty much

unrepentant for a long time. Which

one? Ablett or Wayne Carey? Both of

them. There is no way you can

sanction that. It is not right for

sport S Gary Ablett and Wayne Carey

should be in the Hall of Fame under

the guidelines now. We will continue

this debate over a coffee. I will

wear you down. Good luck with that.

A huge operation is under way at Fromelles in France to exhume the remains of Australian World War I diggers. An unmarked grave containing about 400 Australian and British soldiers was discovered in May last year.

Once identified through DNA, each soldier will be buried with full military honours. We're going to treat these soldiers exactly the same way as all their other comrades buried in cemeteries here in northern France and in Belgium.

Last month, the RBA cut rates to 3% - their lowest level in almost 50 years. Some analysts believe the official cash rate could come down to as low as 2% by the end of the year. In finance news:

Let's check sport now with Beretts. AFL great Kevin Sheedy says rugby league will be forced to make way for another code as AFL attempts to move into Sydney's west. Sheedy has taken a first-hand look at what will be the home of the proposed new franchise in 2012. He's also laughed off any suggestion of the club not working because it's located deep in rugby league territory. Two teams in Melbourne, everybody said, "not sure", "maybe", "it's a challenge".

Melbourne Victory - premiers. Melbourne Storm - premiers. Where - in the heartland of the AFL. So take on all the challengers.

On the field and Geelong will be without star on-baller Gary Ablett for up to three weeks. He has an abductor strain. Richmond star Matthew Richardson could also be sidelined with a strained hamstring while Essendon's Dustin Fletcher has fractured his fibula.

NRL club the Sydney Roosters are yet to decide whether to appeal a $10,000 fine handed to coach Brad Fittler for his post-match blow up. Fittler accused the referees of being biased in decisions involving the Roosters after his side was denied a try against the Sharks on Saturday night. I think it's our team is the only team in the comp that they look at them ultra closely. I sat there in the box and said, "They're going to rule against us". I don't know - it's just crap.

And veteran Eels boss Denis Fitzgerald could part company with the club as early as today.

Fitzgerald lost control of both the football and leagues club boards at separate elections.

Stand-in Aussie captain Michael Clarke is on the move - straight up the ICC one-day international player rankings. His brilliant form with the bat has seem him move up nine places to number 11. The right-hander scored 235 runs in the series against Pakistan

including 100 not out in the fourth match. Nathan Bracken is the top rated Australian bowler at number six, up two places. Former NRL star-turned-boxer John Hopoate is showing off a six-pack for the first time in his career as he prepares to battle Oliver McCall in the US for the IBA world heavyweight title. McCall was once a sparring partner of Mike Tyson

and is one of only a few men to have beaten Lennox Lewis. Hoppa weighs in at 112kg, heavier than he was during his rugby league playing days. Fans have been treated to a netball thriller

at Perth's Challenge Stadium overnight with West Coast fever storming back to beat the New South Wales Swifts by one goal in overtime. It was another tight one in Wellington with Central Pulse going down by a goal to the Northern Mystics also in extra time.

He is huge, Hoppa. And making his

mark in the ring. Yes, very much so. Soon, we'll talk to the small business owners getting behind our campaign to reject the recession. But first let's check today's weather. Fifi is on the Gold Coast this morning. Hello.

You go down, I think. Sorry, Mel. I

am putting the boys through their

paces. I got Dan from the Gold Coast

Titans. I think I am doing the right

thing. I am spotting. He was a

finalist for Cleo bachelor of the

year. I will take him through a few repetitions. Sunrise weather for Natalie Bassingthwaighte's number one album, '1000 Stars' - make it music for Mum this Mother's Day. Another cold morning and mostly sunny day over the south-east inland.

Dry in the interior dry and warm in Western Australia as easterly winds keep the temperature up.

Onshore winds along the east coast will cause showers, heaviest in the northern tropics. Mostly fine in Brisbane. Sydney, a shower or two clearing later.

A partly cloudy day over Melbourne. Adelaide, partly cloudy. Clear sky over Perth. And for the latest weather at your place all day: year. I will take him through a few repetitions..

Well done, Dan.

Well done, Dan. Good reps. We will

move to sit-ups. I will leave you to

it. Come back with some inside

information for the girls on the Titans. Our campaign to reject the recession is off to a flying start. Plenty of people have been adding their voices to it, including the Reject the Recession Choir.

(SINGS) # Stay positive # Reject the recession # You know that life is really good # Reject the recession # Come on, let's make it understood # Reject the recession # You must look out for family # Reject the recession # We're gonna do it, let's do it

# Reject the recession. #

I love it. Well done, guys. Businesses owners and families have emailed the soapbox with hundreds of ideas. In a moment we'll meet some ordinary Aussies bucking the gloom and doom. But first, here's some advice from our recession busters. Here in Australia our economy was in super strong shape ahead of this global financial crisis. What we've done here in Australia is we've worried about it too much.

Consumers have worried about their spending.

Businesses have done the same.

Effectively, we've talking ourselves into a recession. And there are plenty of reasons why we're doing better than the rest of the world.

We've got a good banking system. We're selling the things the rest of the world needs.

People will still need to eat, we're selling food and we're selling a lot of other commodities. We've got a stable Government, a well-educated population and a good welfare net. So how do we take advantage of this? I really feel like small business is going to carry us out of this. We have a lot of opportunities in this recession for businesses to refine the way they're doing things, to finally seize the opportunities on the internet. British businessman Tim Messom was facing financial ruin

only weeks ago but some smart thinking saved him. I've now got 14,000 members in the Facebook group that have helped my business probably out of the worst position it's been in and I'm now on the way up. I guess my lesson was to really think outside the box and do something different.

A man who's been down and out and come back better than ever is Aussie Home Loans founder John Symond.

And he has this advice. The hardest and most important thing is to remain confident, stay away from negativity. But it's the downturn that opportunities arrive. Let's meet some Aussie business people rejecting the recession. Julie Cauchi is from Airlie Day Spa and Wax Pot,

Graeme Diamond started Outback Jacks steakhouses and Emily McDonald designed the Oz Crawl board game. Good morning to all of you.

And hiring plenty of staff. Emily, you have just launched your first board game.

Isn't it a risky time to start a business?

It has been a fantastic time to

start it because people are more

conscious of money and stay at home

so it is a great time to get a board

game and spend time with family and

friends and stay in. The idea is that you

that you are a board game lover but

there are no Australian board games?

There was room for something that is

very patriotic about Australia. Me

That is terrific. Julie, what's the secret to running a successful business in tough economic times? Is

Is it adapting to your customers?

Yes, definitely. Adapting to your customers but

staff at the same time. We used to

sell a lot of large packages within

our business. Now our packages are

smaller so the price point is lower

but we are increasing our volume. Graeme, you've got jobs going but can't find the staff. Who are you looking for and what kind of experience do they need?

In every State of Australia we are

The teenager has been on hormone medication since she was 13 to stop her female sex organs developing. What will this mean for her later in life? Joining us now is Sunrise parenting expert Dr Michael Carr-Gregg. Good morning.

Is 17 too young to make such a serious decision?

Without the expertise of a court,

yes. But what's happened in these

sorts of situations is that the

experts present evidence and on the

basis of that evidence it is deemed

that the person is a mature minor. That is, it

that they have sufficient maturity

objects and it has to be adjudicated

on and then they present the evidence

children feel trapped in their

Essentially it is an identity hung

on by the mind much more strongly.

Puberty is terrifying for these

people because it is abhorrent to

Thank you. Good to talk to you. There have been no shortage of political scandals over the years. But the Italian PM has landed himself in very hot water. The drama all started when Silvio Berlusconi's wife said she wanted a divorce, blaming his roving eye. Now the flamboyant billionaire is demanding she apologise. He reckons his wife is bad-mouthing him.

Their marital problems have been news around the world. For more we're joined by our European correspondent Al-Jazeera's Hamish MacDonald. Hamish is this really the end of Silvio Berlusconi's 19-year marriage? Ut

It sounds like it. Well, it is

difficult to pick but certainly the

indications that this time he may

have finally done it. Don't have finally done it. Don't forge

that his wife has threatened to do

this twice publicly before by

writing to the press. She did it

with an open letter that was picked

up by all the media outlets in Italy

it is her. He says he wants an

apology because he thinks she has

been bad-mouthing him. He has picked

a huge array of beautiful women with

no political experience and she says

he has gone too far this time. Is

this harming his political future in

Italy? We couldn't imagine a stoush

between Kevin and his wife being

played out. You wouldn't expect that

in Australia like it is in Italy at

the moment. One of the bits that was

brought up in the open letter by his

wife, Veronica is that he recently

famous for saying all the time that

he is doing pretty well for a

say. Thank you, Hamish. Good to

catch up. He is worth $ catch up. He is worth $6. catch up. He is worth $6.5 billion.

It could be an expensive divorce.

Amazing. It is an Amazing. It is an amazing story. A Sydney business has been the target of a serial invader. The boss at this marketing agency knew something was up

when each morning the office seemed out of order. Then breakfast supplies started going missing too. So, the super-sleuth staff got to work. It turned out someone was breaking into the office at night. The man was caught after pictures were captured on a camera

hidden in a cereal box.

Joining us now is boss Doug Chapman, good morning.

Your business is a marketing

company. Do you have a cereal

client? Yes, we do. Hang on. Is this

all above board? Yes, there is no

hoax here. It is purely

coincidental. We were a little

cynical about it. When did you

realise this was going on? I came

back to work after Christmas and I

noticed that my office in particular

somebody had been sleeping on the

lounge and cushions were on the

floor and a few bits and pieces were

out of order. I out of order. I thought maybe

someone was using it as a meeting.

How was he actually getting inside

the office? That was the main reason

for trying to find out what was

going on because we checked all the

doors, we checked the normal

security and there was no evidence

of anyone coming in in the normal

way. By

way. By putting in cameras, we

discovered he was coming through in

an air vent. It wasn't a staff

member? No. We went down that road

for a while. I bet you did. He came

through the air vent and sleeping through the air vent and sleeping o through the air vent and sleeping on

the cushions and having a bite of

the cereal. What happened? Have you

caught him? Yes,

caught him? Yes, last week the

landlord security people found him

and they spoke to the police and we

had no interest in charging him. We

didn't want to add to the guy's

situation but we wanted to make sure

that the building secure. And the

only thing he did was eat the

cereal? It is true. He obviously

cereal? It is true. He obviously slept there but he was having a

fairly healthy breakfast. Sounds

like a Fruit Loop. There you go. Are

you convinced Do you think it will

be pop up on the Gruen Transfer?

Possibly. Still to come - how much personal information should you reveal about yourself even if it's to a bank or insurance company? Plus the bloke how scored the ultimate birthday present. So why did he initially say no? And, ever had an interview like this?

I have an interview at 10:00. Have a

seat with the rest. Why do you want

this job? I am incredibly

The Rudd Government has been accused of making a hollow promise by suggesting it will cut carbon emissions by 25%. Kevin Rudd says the ambitious target could be met if there's world agreement at December's climate change conference in Copenhagen. The Government has delayed its emission trading scheme by 12 months because of the worsening global economy. The parents of an Australian baby being tested for swine flu should know the results today.

The 8-month-old from Tasmania came down with symptoms after returning from Canada last week. It may have infected others at its childcare centre. More than 1,000 people are being treated for swine flu across 20 countries, including 3 Australians in the UK. If the situation remains as it is WHO has no plan to raise the alert level to six at this moment.

But the World Health Organization is still warning people to be on their guard with a pandemic still possible. Drivers heading south on Sydney's F3 are being warned to expect delays this morning following a 3-car pile-up near Mount Colah.

All southbound lanes re-opened a short time ago following the crash around 5:00 this morning.

Police believe two cars smashed into a broken down vehicle towing a boat. Three people were taken to hospital. Princess Eugenue was mugged in Cambodia during her recent gap year holiday.

Let's catch up with Beretts for all the day's sport.

Hawthorn's Simon Taylor is facing his second suspension this season

after being charged with rough conduct by AFL's Match Review Panel. Taylor is risking a 3-match ban if he goes to the tribunal.

Collingwood forward John Anthony can accept a 1-match ban for headbutting North Melbourne defender Scott McMahon. Stranded NRL star Michael Crocker could call Souths home for the rest of the 2009 season. The feisty backrower has been on the hunt for a club since being refused a visa to play in the UK.

News Limited papers have revealed a leaked email confirming the backrower has been offered a contract to play with Souths. His salary will be topped up by a $25,000 payment from a leading real estate agency. Former Aussie opener Matthew Hayden has put in another solid effort for the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League overnight. The IPL's top run scorer hit 43 off just 26 balls

to steer the Kings to a 78-run win over Adam Gilchrist's Deccan Chargers. M.S. Dohni was also impressive with his unbeaten 58 in the Kings' total of 3/173. Deccan's run chase was disastrous - they lost both openers Gilchrist and Herschelle Gibbs in the first two overs.
