We are live from New York City. The father of the fur Italian sisters sent home after an international custody battle has held a media conference. Sophie Walsh is in Florence, Italy. What did the father have the say?Karl t father said today was the final chapter in this heartbreaking story. He cannot wait to begin his new and better life with his four young girls. The press conference took police in his lawyer's office in Florence. The man we met today was different to the man we saw outside his Villa to days ago. He as softly spoken, incredibly polite telling us he holds no hatreds towards the girls mother and hopes one day she will come in peace the Italy to see her girls again. He described how difficult the last two years have been, how he has cried himself to sleep every night. How tough it was the fell hike the entire Australian population was against limb and how lucky he felt and happy when an Australian judge ruled in his favour.

The girls mother is right now trying to raised 10,000 to hire herself an Italian lawyer so she can try to gain sole custody of her girls. One thing she will not be doing any time soon though is travelling to Italy herself. She is too afraid she will be arrested on kidnapping charges. This is one case this has no winners. As far as we know the girls mother has had minimal contact with the her girls ever since they left Australia. Is now going on week. We know she has poured every last cent into this case and money is a real issue for her an she simply does not know the next time she will see her girls again. While Central Park is one of the most popular attractions here, not many people know what those 843 acres hold in store. But we have Gen and taken a look. Beneath man what cran's impressive skyline is a huge oasis, somewhere to escape life in the big city.

You are watching 'The Today Show' live from New York City. We are loving it. We are spreading the spotlight on a film shot around here starring Pradeesha Abraham directed by his best friend and has an all-star sporting cast. It is called 'The Words'.Just doing a final pass.Bradley Cooper replys an inspiring art Christ who cannot quite make it. Then his partner Dora gives him an antique briefcase as a present. Inside, surprise, surprise, a perfectly written manuscript so what does he do? He writes it up as his own.The winner of this year's award...And jackpot, it becomes a best-seller.. I as interesting to play a character so torn and could not rap is head around telling the truth because he is so desperately needing to feel like - feel enough and have an identity wanted the he as willing to for depo doing work and waiting. His Achilles heel was his I'm patients. Because that is what was interested and we talked about, that he Tilly is a good writer. It is not he had no talent and this to steal this he was just I'm patient. Ten he met the real author of 'The Words'I have a story about a man who wrote a back and lost it as the piss-and kid who found it Jeremy Irons and playing him in the back lash scenes Ben Barnes.He was a young old man, I cannot think of another name for the character but I watched rushes of his work because he finished filming week before. So I went in and I watched close-ups than on his face of him telling the story of the young man which is not in the film because it is showing us at the time but he filmed that with Bradley so it was the most useful thing you could have done to watch his mannerisms and the way he moved his fess and hands.Two weeks it was finished. For Bradley it was a joy working with his best made, director Brian Klugman.We have been best friends for 10 years old about. Owl we were not best friend at 10, he was a little mean to me but we have cult have it add great friendship. He moved to Los Angeles, we pursued acting in the entertainment business so it was so wonderful to have your best mate here while you are trying to do it too.It is not over yet.I look at my life, your life, his life. Where does Brian get the inspiration from? The conversation came out of Ernest Hemmingway had gone I guess to Italy to interview Musolini and level his wife with some of his writing and she left home on attain which opened up a Pandora's box for questions for le and I and we started to ask each other these questions and the story grew out of it and it became, we realised a great metaphor to deal with all these questions.You feel those words, you feel the pain.. I think it is important to spark debate about stuff. If you think one character is fictional or not on one character is an older version of another or not it is alright. I think it is alright the feel differently or that one is a figure meant of your imagine nation and one is a real person like I think it is important to make films that you talk about afterwards. We all make choices in life. Hard thinks to live with.It is a quirky film. I think you are going to enjoy it. Terrific cast. Bradley cooper at his best A different side to Bradley Cooper than the one we usually see. The Jan du Plessis were on the show last week, terrific. They have released their Brad new video.

Now, here is Ross.Good morning to you all. I've told you many times before here that Bill Evans from Westpac led the pack among economists predicting rate cuts in Australia. His reasoning - always - is that rates would fall because unemployment would rise. And one of the foundations of the Reserve Bank's function is to hopefully maintain full employment. Already we have seen official interest rates fall by one full percentage point in the past six months, but it sees inevitable that rates will fall to all-time lows - some have called them emergency lows - in the coming months. And it gets back to Bill Evans original thinking: that rising unemployment will force the Reserve Bank's hand. And there's evidence to show a lot of people have given up trying. Evans says if those people were included, the real jobless rate would now be over 6%, not the impressive 5.1% currently. And, in the absence of the Government willing to spend money in the short-term - remember all the big picture stuff like the Disability Insurance Scheme and Education funding is way off into the future - the only thing left to adjust the economy is interest rates. And remember last month I told you to watch the market to see the guide for interest rates in the near future? Well right now markets are pricing in a 90% chance of another rate cut in November - Melbourne Cup Day. It could be a good bet. Amazing stuff. Thanks for that Ross. It is gossip time now let's go to the boys. (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) We have fallen in with a pretty good crowd out here. Aussies, you can pick them anywhere.They are beautiful people in New York, but the Australians so beautiful!! Look at them. Hard to disagree with that. Speaking of beautiful people, Liz Hurley goes into bat for our Warnie, says he is the real deal.Well, Liz Hurley, we love her a lot has been said about Shane Warne and whether or not he has gone under the knife and had plastic surgery because he looks so good. But Liz has gone on the record, here is what she said: "He's never had a surgery and is not on a diet and he doesn't wear make-up. For the record he is all natural". So there you have it from Elizabeth her err herself. She didn't mention, botox - there, I said it.He is certainly saying it. Shock Hollywood split.Little Danny Devito, we know him from 'Taxi' and he used to work with Tony Danza. He and his wife of 30 years, you know her, she was on 'Cheers', 30 years in Hollywood, one of the longest marriages but they have called it a day. After 30 years you would think a couple could work it out but apparently Danny is one that filed for the separation. It comes as a surprise.That is a shock. Speaking of him, his one-time twin, Arnold Schwarzenegger - only our mother can tell us apart - is he back with his ex?You know what I told you that in confidence before the show but there are rumours that Arnold Schwarzenegger and March slave slave are back together. -- Maria sliver are back together.A mixed reaction.Maria was seen out and about in Hollywood wearing her big old wedding ring again. She hadn't worn it for months. People are saying that Arnold going back on TV saying," I have every hope that Maria will take me back', that it softened her heart. What do you think should she take him back?He made some ugly confregss through the interview so she could be forgiven not taking him back. Who is the One Direction who is making comparisons to the Beatles - is it not Harry?Of course it is Harry. He says I think One Direction is just as big as The Beatles back in their day. Currently they are so big, so massive, and Harry a little bit cheeky. The Beatles - One Direction, what do you think?Think that call is a little too soon, what do you think?What do you think, are One Direction as big as the Beatles? (CHEERING) They there is a crowd divided.It is a begunrational thing, but time is on their side. What do you think, controversy reigns?As usual with you tooI am not sure about that. The Beatles wrote their own stuff and One Direction have not written anything!Well spotted!!Here are the top stories on Today. Come in peace - the Italian father at the centre of international custody dispute saying his ex will be able to see her taughters. The Margie effect. Tony Abbott get as bounce in the polls after his wife comes to his defence. Also this morning born into the mafia, the daughter of a New York crime boss. Hip hop Ross! Wow, Ross Greenwood trades finance for fun on the streets of Harlem. And 'Who's the boss' Tony Danza is right here in our Times Square studio. ANNOUNCER: Today live from New York City!! Now to Karl and Lisa in Times Square studio. Yeah, we never get sick of the voice over guy saying that. Thank you very much of your company. It is right on 7 o'clock on this Tuesday, 9 October. We are here all week. Let's get things started now. The father of the four Italian sisters sent home after an international custody battle has held a media conference overnight. Sophie Walsh was there. She is in Florence Italy for us this morning. What did the father have to say? Well, Karl, the father described the last two years and said they were the toughest years he has ever experienced. He said despite those distressing immanages we saw outside his villa two days ago the girls are settling in quite well. He said they were staying with her cousins and he was heartened when his youngest girl came to him and said, "Dad, I want to attend the local school". I asked him why he didn't just pack up his bags to move back down to Australia to be with them. He said that is something that he will consider but at this point in time he is just waying for all the hysteria to die down. And the fear for the future of my girls. I put this into chain because I love my girls very much. The best interest for the children is having the father and the mother - not only the mother or not only the father.The girl's father also said that he held no hatred towards their mother. He said she had a very difficult upbringing and he feels come plags and he hopes that one day -- compassion and he hopes that one day in the future they may be able to reconcile. Thank you very much for that. We will talk to you soon for another update very soon. Police are investigating whether speed was a factor in a truck crash at Sydney's Holsworthy army base that left 18 soldiers injured. 13 are believed to be in hospital - one soldier remains on life support in a critical condition - while the others are stable. Awful crash there.More extraordinary developments this morning in the Peter Slipper case with new court documents revealing some of the disgusting things he is alleged to have said. Nine news political reporters Lane Calcutt joins us now. These alleged comments by Peter Slipper, they are so bad we can't actually quote them directly on breakfast TV.Yeah, they are pretty awful. It is an awkward position for the government this one given its support for Peter Slipper. But the latest court documents show quite extraordinary alleged text messages, we have to say, between Mr Slipper and James Ashby, the former staffer who has brought this case against his former boss. Most of them as you say we cannot repeat on air but they have shown some remarkable exchanges which the Liberal say expose Mr Slipper's own attitude to women. What we can discussion is a reference to the a liberal front bencher as an "ignorant botch". And it has led to Julie bishop saying that his position is now untenable and demanding to know if Julia Gillard still supports him calling on her to begin moves to remove him from the chair. And Tony Windsor is questioning whether he should return even if he is cleared of these charges, Lisa.This is a real predicament for the government because there is an irony here. The Attorney-General Nicola Roxon intervened to save Mr Slipper from an embarrassing court case last week yet at the same time she is attacking Tony Abbott over what she claims is his problem with women. You can bet the liberals will go on the attack when Parliament resumes today. 'Australian' reports that Nicola Roxon did personally step into the case to support Mr Slipper. At the same time she and other female politicians were pursuing Mr Abbott over the perception that he just doesn't get women. That led to his wife to speak out for his husband on the program. That may have worked. The latest Newspoll has Labor back down and the coalition is in an election winning position at the moment. Personal support for Tony Abbott also lifted slightly, this after the Jones scandal and Labor tried to link him to the 2GB shock jock. OK, Lane Calcutt in Canberra for now. Than v much. Georgie.Thank you, Lisa. A 27-year-old man has become the latest victim of Sydney's gun crime, after he was shot in the leg. Police were called to a home at Yagoona, in the city's south-west, around 9 o'clock last night. The street was cordoned off and a crime scene set up. The man remains in hospital in a stable condition. Thieves in Sydney have targeted a designer good shop in a ram-raid. Nat smell smell is at the -- Matt Snelson is at the store and joins us now. Do you know what was stolen?Handbags and other items at the value of about $100,000. Castlereagh Street where this has happened, very busy street and there are cameras up and down the street, but at about 1 o'clock they have driven a black sedan straight through the front doors and a number of men have got out of the car, grabbed those items and then driven away. Now, police have now obviously reviewing the CCTV, not only of the store but right along the street as they try to identify the men involved and the store when we got here this morning, there were probably about six shelves that had been empties out by these thieves, they have been restocked and the managers are now trying to secure the door again before the doors open later on today.Matt, this isn't the first time a designer store has been targeted in recent weeks is it?No, that is right. Four ram raids now in just over a month. This is the first time Prada has been targeted but last month there was a space of about three weeks where Camilla Francs clothing stores were targeted. The last one happened at Paddington where thieves reversed a car through the front door and stole a number of their famous clothing items. Those three robberies, about 700 clothing items were taken at a cost of about $250,000. Adding this last one to that tally, the thieves in ram raids have you stolen about $350,000 worth of goods in just over a month and police are now still investigating all of those incidents and are appealing with anyone for information on this latest one to come forward and contact Crimestoppers.Alright, we will leave it there for now. Thank you very much. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made their first public appearance in the UK following their trip to the south-pacific - and the topless photo scandal. They attended a lunch at a law school in London. It marks the beginning of a busy week for the royal couple - and they appeared relaxed as they chatted with winners of three scholarships. Kate wore a red wine coloured suit - matching the prince's tie. Next on the agenda - a football stadium opening tomorrow. While women are usually dubbed the "clucky" ones, it seems Aussie blokes are just as keen to have babies. According to new research, 66% of men long for fatherhood compared to 67% of women. The study found more than a quarter of men admitted just the sight of other parents with children was enough to make them want their own. Sweet. Well, news just in: 37 Australian women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day. Sadly seven of those women lose their fight each day. By 2020 about 17,200 new breast cancers will be diagnosed in Australia each year - that's nearly 50 a day. But there is good news - survival rates have increased nationally from 72% in the 80s to 89% now. For more we are joined by Dr Helen Zorbas from Cancer Australia. Good morning to you. That is good news about the survival rates getting better, what do you think this is due to?Good morning, we know survival has improved because of greater awareness amongst women about the importance of reporting symptoms early and we also have a national ma'am graphic screening program dedicated to finding breast cancer early and so through both of those means we are finding more and more cancers at an earlier stage. We also have the latest in treatments available to women across Australia. So with earlier diagnosis and improved availability of treatments we are seeing a steady and increasing trend of improved survival year on year.That is fantastic news. This new research also found that by 2020 even more women will be diagnosed with the disease. Why is that increasing? Well, breast cancer is a disease primarily of aging, although it can occur in women of all ages. Three out of four breast cancers are in women aged 50 years or older. As our population ages we anticipate that more and more women will continue to be diagnosed with the disease. As we have seen in the stats, from 1982 until now the numbers of women diagnosed have more than doubled and we will continue to see those increasing in numbers over time.What we also know is that breast cancer right now remains the most common cancer in Australian women. So Helen, what would your message to Australian women be?Well, it is the most common cancer in Australian women but survival rates, as we have also said, have continued to improve over time. It is really important that women who are at least of the screening age - so women over 40, particularly women 50 years and over - do attend for regular mamographic screens and for women of all know to be aware of their regular look and feel of their breast. If you have a worry, have it checks out. Most of those changes will not be breast cancer but if it is it is so important that they are treated early.A very important message. Thank you very much hell listen. While the city is known for its bright lights, one of the main attractions is Central Park. The park is a green oasis right smack bang in the middle of the city. For these Manhattans, impressive skyline is a huge oasis - somewhere to escape life in the big city. The endless paths and beautiful scenery make it a haven for runners and walkers. But if you ask me the best way to cram it all in in one day is on a set of wheels. How are you? Good, how are you?Good. The park covers 50 blocks, so that is a round trip of about 12km. Take it from me it is very, very important that you map out your day. Although the benefit of getting lost is you might just stumble upon something you were not expecting to find. Aside from being a helpful reference point, the 'Friends' fountain is one of the many famous landmarks in the park. The setting for more than 200 movies. Like that tense chase scene in 'Home Alone 2'. Directly across the street is poets walk, bringing back memories of 'When Harry Met Sally'.OK, there is this guy.What does he look like?I don't know, he is just kind of faceless.Most days you will find buskers in the malling do their thing.$3? Thank you.It is a great spot to take a break from all of that pedalling. 'Madagascar' fans will know all about the Central Park zoo.Thank you, thank you - oh, well, thank you.In real life the zoo is home to around 150 species - snow leopards, sales and in the tropical rain forest all sorts of creatures. -- seals and in the tropical rain forest all sorts of creatures. If movies is not your thing, there is no problem, like any good park there is plenty of play grounds and sports fields. As well as several lawns to stretch out on. This is otherwise known as Manhattan beach - no water anywhere but obviously lots and lots of sunbakers. On a busy Saturday there could be 35,000 people sprawled across that meadow. Good people watching. When your legs grow tired you can always try your hand at rowing. Boats can be hired for about $12 and as long as you can navigate your way around safely it is a beautiful way to take in your surroundings. One day in Central Park doesn't quite feel like enough. Sylvia Jeffreys reporting there from Central Park, thanks so much for that. More more information on that and other New York tourist attractions head to I love that ad. Let's check out the front pages with Georgie.Thanks very much Karl. In the 'Courier Mail' Ben Tullipan lost both his legs in the Bali bombings and was told he would never walk again, but thanks to his two passions of family and golf, the 36-year-old is standing tall. The 'Daily Telegraph' says police are grappling with the mystery death of young Manly rugby league player Jason Annear, who plunged on to rocks at Queenscliff after the clubs awards night. "Betrayed" says the 'Herald Sun'. A young wife who dreamed of a new life in Victoria has become the latest victim of a failed intervention order system after she was murdered by her jealous husband. And the Adelaide 'Advertiser' says "Getting by with a little help from my friend". Visually impaired best friends have become the youngest in SA to undergo white cane training. Time now for a hit of the weather, over to you Stevie. Thank you very much. We are waking up on the BayouVermillion. The clay in it used to make it very red. Nowadays it is kind of brown. This whole city was called Vermillion for about 60 years until they changed the now. Now it is the home of ca jan culture. I am going to lay some on you from the dictionary on you after we have a look at the weather.

If you would like to speak like a Cajun you can speak it right here in the dictionary, like : I the one like to fly on those big or row plane. And axe him if she want some more gum bow. And bad, which you think is the difference of good. -- opposite of good, but it is actually bed. I am tired I have to go to bad.
