# Put your hands in
to the big sky. # Live from Studio 52,
this is Weekend Sunrise with Samantha Armytage
and Andrew O'Keefe.

Good morning, welcome. Sammy. Andrew.The us something about it today, you have an aura.It is the lighting system.You're a correct. Indeed.I have got an old bag Light today. To get rid of the old bags. The bags under your eyes are designer bags. That is how she rolls.Anyway, let's get things started. We are all the bags, good morning.James is in Tarin Kowt. Close. I'm in Richmond, at the RAAF base. It is a fundraiser. This is not a dentist being. You are not pulling it with your teeth. They know that you're going to do what. You're not going to be arrested or anything? Let us have a look at what is happening around Fine throughout
Queensland the Top End
and South Australia. A few showers across Victoria
and Western Australia and toward the south
of New South Wales.

I will have your

I will have your local weather in detail after the news. The man convicted of murdering Australian
heart surgeon Dr Victor Chang has just arrived in his home country
of Malaysia. Wearing a dark navy hoodie, Chiew Seng Liew was seated
at the very back of the plane, surrounded by a team
of Federal Police officers. Liew was deported after being freed
from Sydney's Long Bay Prison under tight security last night. He was immediately taken
to Sydney airport to fly home, in time for his daughter's wedding. The 69-year-old who suffers from
Parkinson's disease appeared frail.

There's been emotional scenes
in Bali with a peace paddle to remember
those killed 10 years ago when two bombs went off
in the Sari Club. Heavy security manned
a memorial overnight as survivors and victim's families
continue to grieve. Sunrise correspondent
Michelle Tapper is in Bali. Michelle, has the memorial been open
all night?

It has and it is normally closed from dusk till Dawn but hundreds of people have been coming through, taking photos, laying flowers and lighting candles and even at 4 am, you can still see there are people down there and they're paying their respects to their lost loved ones. Across the road, where the club used to stand, the makeshift car park has been closed because there was a big service their last night that around 200 people and they lit candles and made the numbers 88, which represents the 88 Australian lives lost. There was also a sunset service at the beach. Hundreds gathered beer, surfers paddling out for a piece paddle and also released 202 baby turtles to signify all the lives lost in the bombings 10 years ago. -- there. Security has been stepped up. There are several police and military burns patrolling the streets. Her just surrounding the memorial, making sure that nothing happens. Despite battling an economic crisis
and financial debt,

the European Union has been awarded
this year's Nobel Peace Prize. The Norwegian committee has praised
the union's 27 nations for helping transform a continent
of war into one of peace. The Nobel Peace Prize has been
awarded to the European Union - a rather faceless organisation

that represents 27 countries
across the continent. The work of the European Union represents fraternity
between nations. The Nobel committee
praised the EU's contribution to the advancement of peace
and democracy in Europe very much looking
to its past successes as it struggles to deal
with the debt crisis and subsequent economic instability.

but of course we have our everyday
problems as well. The union was created in the 1950s in the aftermath
of the Second World War, with France and Germany
the key drivers. Since then it's grown to represent
the interests of 500 million people. In the last century,
two world wars were fought here with Germany and France
the main protagonists. Today, war between
these two nations is inconceivable. And it is for this reconciliation
and peace achieved following the devastation of war
that the EU is being recognised.

It is also a sign of confidence,
a sign of confidence that the European project is
worthwhile being supported and that it has a future. The people that run the organisation
say the award was completely unexpected
and is a great honour. But the EU has many vocal critics who say it's an expensive
and unaccountable organisation. The European Union
is currently causing untold poverty and hardship
for people.

An unseasonable cold snap
along the country's east coast Heavy snowfalls blanketed parts
of New South Wales yesterday. Black ice in the Blue Mountains
saw major roads closed as drivers struggled
in the conditions. Emergency crews were forced
to make hundreds of rescues.

This is ah by far the heaviest snow
fall I've ever seen in Katoomba, let alone just in spring. In the Victorian Alps, a group of school students had
to be rescued from their hike in sub-zero temperatures. Two students are recovering
after showing signs of hypothermia.

Olympic champion Ian Thorpe
has revealed he's spent most of his life
battling crippling depression. Also confessing
he's contemplated suicide and used binge drinking
to manage his moods. The swimmer says he hid
the alcohol abuse from his coaches during the lead-up
to the 2004 Athens Olympics. The revelations are contained
in Thorpe's new autobiography which is being released next month. Thorpe has also used the book to deny ongoing speculation
that he's gay.

In finance news:

The world's most
famous ruby red slippers are about to step out off the US
for the first time. Dorothy's famous footwear
from 'The Wizard of Oz' will go on display in London
next week. Made famous more than 70 years ago, they're one of four pairs worn
by Judy Garland in the 1939 film. The satin and sequin slippers will be part of a 4-week
Hollywood Costume exhibition. Wouldn't you love to

Wouldn't you love to put those on for a moment? Click your heels together.In pure talking slippers. That is a low heel, not a high heel. The disquiet a low heel. Wouldn't you call that more sort of a pump them are so poor? It is more of us that there? If you have got your dressing-gown on and shuffling around with a cup of tea, are you wearing knows?I would, yes.As that right? Not a Hush puppy or a Grozny? You do not want to click your Hush puppies together. I think that's where I'd end up. Ahead this morning - can the Macarena match it
with Gangnam Style? We figure the only way to find out
is with a live dance off here in the studio.

A late bid for a Walkley Award. We are having a dance-off.We have professionals coming in.Friends of Dorothy.We will assault your senses this morning. But next - competition of
a different kind as we talk sport,

including
the Australian cycling boss And JT has your local weather.

Returning now to an early story - the assassin who murdered Australian
heart surgeon Dr Victor Chang has touched down in Malaysia. Chiew Seng Liew was lead of the
plane by Federal Police officers after arriving this morning. He was deported last night after being released
from Sydney's Long Bay prison under tight security. He's now expected to be reunited
with family.

As pictures Justine from Malaysia. -- those pictures just in from Malaysia. After nine o'clock, we will be talking about a move in the UK for victims of crime to choose the punishment of the perpetrators. The chain family would not have any say in the sentence but for minor crimes, such as brake and enters, it is part of the restorative justice model, I think. It is very interesting.Let us know what you think. When we speak out experts on said.. Sport. And now with sport,
here's Simon Reeve.

Adelaide United has banked
consecutive wins to open the A-League season with a 1-0 victory
over newcomers Western Sydney.

Wanderer's midfielder Mateo Poljak
went within a whisker of scoring the fledgling club's
first goal in the 32nd minute But it was Adelaide's Argentinean
import Jeronimo Neumann who scored the solo goal
for the match. Making amends for a missed penalty, within minutes he deftly
put one past the keeper deep in the second half. COMMENTATOR: Jeronimo's smart.

The run he made for the goal
of the shoulder was pretty clever.

And a crowd of more than 30,000
is expected at Allianz Stadium this evening as star imports Alessandro del Piero
and Emile Heskey face off in Sydney FC's clash
with the Newcastle Jets. Australian cyclist Matt White
has been named in the investigation into
Lance Armstrong's reported drug use. White, who was part of Armstrong's
Tour de France team from 2001-2003 has been mentioned by another
former team-mate Floyd Landis, who is central to the inquiry. The 38-year-old was the men's
Australian road team director at the London Olympics. It comes as Tour de France
organisers say they're against re-assigning
Armstrong's seven victories, preferring a 7-year gap
in the winners' list.

Melbourne, Queensland, and
Australian captain Cameron Smith will try to emulate legends
Allan Langer and Darren Lockyer's Triple Crown Clean sweep when the Kangaroos take
on the Kiwis in Townsville tonight. If the Aussies are successful, the tireless hooker will become
just the third skipper to hoist test Origin and Premiership
trophies in a season.

The focus isn't on that. It's just about going out
and playing well, and everything will look after
itself. And former Warriors boss
and now Essendon CEO Ian Robson has become the leading contender
to replace David Gallop as the ARL's chief executive. Gallop is due to start as Australian
soccer's new chief next month.

In AFL draft news - Collingwood's Chris Dawes has asked
to be traded to Melbourne. The 2010 premiership player kicked
just 16 goals this season from 23 games up forward.

He's leaving the Pies and chose
the Demons over the Bulldogs. And after being an emergency
in two grand final sides, Hawthorn's Tom Murphy has signed
with the Gold Coast Suns. The AFL has released the schedule
for next year's NAB Cup with the final to be played
Friday 15 or Saturday 16 March. Australian rugby union chairman
Michael Hawker hasn't ruled out
an overseas appointment for the vacant CEO position. It follows John O'Neill's decision
to step down after 14 years at the helm. O'Neill's announcement has left the New Zealand-born and
bred Wallabies coach Robbie Deans with one less high-powered
supporter.

As with every employee
subject to regular reviews and the board conducts that review. The ARU will launch a worldwide
search to fill the position. at the Japanese Grand Prix just six weeks after ankle surgery. Stoner says he's still only 50% fit
but is defying doctors orders with his sights fixed
on Phillip Island later this month. I wasn't gonna miss Phillip Island so I thought I may as well do
these two races as well. The 2011 champion was injured in
a crash at Indianapolis in August. Yamaha's Danny Pedrosa was
the fastest in practice. And Red Bull duo Sebastian Vettel
and Aussie Mark Webber has dominated the second practice
at the Korean Grand Prix. The pair battled for top spot
throughout the race with Vettel crossing the line
ahead by the narrowest of margins. Both drivers say they're still
looking for improvements ahead of today's qualifying.

He is across between Leonardo and something else today, looking very good today.JT. What about Danny Zucco. I'd say Danny de Vito. Tomorrow, we will be in Sutherland at a police driver safety thing. It will be great. Helicopters, hot-air balloons. This morning, we are with the cops as well. We are at the RAAF airbase in Richmond and we get to play with toys like this, a Hercules that weighs 40 tons and teams of people will be pulling it at 10 metres. Call it as far as you can in 10 metres. The winning team gets all of the glory, all the money raised going to the Special Olympics. It is something the police have been doing for a while but not

This has been happening since 1993, something the police do every year raising money for the Special Olympics so it is a great way for them to be part of a sporting event that happens right around Australia in different space -- States and around the world. I will explain it all but I want to put these on as I say goodbye.Goose?Definitely.He was married to Meg Ryan, remember? Straight ahead this morning - our new weekly segment,
guaranteed to inspire.

Also coming up -
a Weekend Sunrise exclusive - the Goanna classic 'Solid Rock'
was a reference to Uluru. This morning - you'll see frontman
Shane Howard perform it at the rock. You won't want to miss this. And what's with the European Union
winning the Nobel Peace Prize? Keith Suter will try to explain.

If he stay at the Legend, who other legends?Allan Langer, Wally Lewis? Well, at this time last week,
we read you extracts from a letter written by a
grandfather to his grandchildren shortly before his death. We were overwhelmed by the response. If you didn't see the segment - you can find it on our YouTube page
or our website. Many of you suggested you'd like to see more positive
and inspiring content, such as that letter, on shows like ours.

Why we're doing the macarena later. Your wish is our command. Every Saturday in this segment, we intend to bring you something
that inspired us during the week. And this week - we'd like to share
extracts from a column written by journalist Tracey Spicer
on the Australian website Hoopla. The piece is titled
Life's Too Short to be Busy. Tracey writes - "as I stared at her coffin, "I was haunted by two words -
too busy. "Her nickname was mangoes for the
fruit grown on her parents' farm - "On our first day at university,
she strode into the lecture theatre, "flaming auburn hair and slash
of red lipstick - "a modern day Greta Garbo. "I was a kid from the 'burbs -
she was my first girl crush. "A decade later,
we reunited in Sydney, "and from then on every Tuesday, "we would share a bottle of wine
over lunch - "a '90s gris replacing
the '80s Green Ginger. "It was as if we'd never been apart. "With a rapier wit, she would
dissect the issues of the week, "the nasty boss in the newsroom,
her son's obsession with tractors "hubby and his gaping boxer shots. "We giggled like schoolgirls. "But life in the big smoke
took its toll. "Anxiety and its shadow
of addiction "forced the family's retreat
to the country. "Our long and languid phone calls
became snatched chats "while picking up the kids
from school, driving to work "or chopping the veggies. "She was a loyal friend to the end. "But me? "Weeks became months. "Calls contracted to texts. "Emails, to tweets. "I was always "too busy". "So, I sit in a small funeral home
staring at a shiny casket. "I want to pick up the phone
and call the woman inside.

"Like I should have done
when she was alive. "But I was always "too busy". "Sometimes I'd get halfway
through dialling the number "then realise I had an opinion colum
to write, "a radio interview to line up,
or a networking function to attend. "What a fool I have been. "Her addictions may have killed her
but mine murdered our friendship. "As Gandhi once wrote, "There is more to life
than increasing its speed." "On his deathbed, Tim Kreider says "he'll wish he could have
"one more beer with Chris, "another long talk with Megan,
one last good hard laugh with Boyd. "Life is too short to be busy". "I wish I had realised this before one of my friends ended up
in a box."

# Please don't start Europe ply with this sorry, I was busy as well. I know you were busy, we are all busy. You've got such important things to do. Please don't stop at your reply. With this sorry, I am busy too. I know you're busy, we are all so busy. We have got such important things to do. #.

Excuse me, is your

Yeah, of course. Time for a quick check?

But I brushed
this morning. Not with Colgate Total Toothpaste. VOICEOVER: A build-up of bacteria in your mouth can lead to common dental problems. Colgate Total is clinically proven to protect against bacteria for up to 12 hours. Try it
and come back tomorrow.

Let's see.
Wow! Where's all that bacteria? I'm impressed.

The man convicted of murdering Australian
heart surgeon Dr Victor Chang has just touched down in Malaysia

Chiew Seng Liew was lead
of the plane by Federal Police Officers
after arriving this morning. He was deported last night after being released
from Sydney's Long Bay prison under tight security. He's now expected to be reunited
with family shortly. Australian swim star Ian Thorpe has
revealed he's contemplated suicide having spent much of his life
battling depression. In a book about to be published, the Olympian also confesses
to drinking large amounts of alcohol to manage his moods. Particularly in the lead-up
to the 2004 Athens Games where he felt pressured
to defend his Olympic titles. The 30-year-old has only just told
his family of his illness and says the incidence of depression is common
among other elite athletes. Bali bombing survivors have returned
to the hospital that treated victims 10 years ago. Julia Gillard also made
the emotional visit. She thanked staff for their care in the days and weeks
after the terror attack and announced
a new medical training program. The Government will offer
60 scholarships over three years from 2014.

So more of our friends
from Indonesia can come and train in Australia.

The Prime Minister
also pledged $50 million to help train Indonesian nurses
and midwives.

Victoria Police are trying
to piece together what led to a horror crash
in the state's north. One person died and seven others
were seriously injured when a minivan and semitrailer
collided near Tatura yesterday afternoon. Four of those hurt were airlifted
to Melbourne hospitals. They include a 17-year old girl
and a 30-year-old woman. Three others were taken by ambulance
to a local hospital.

New South Wales police
are hunting four men following an armed robbery
at a fast food restaurant in Sydney's western suburbs. Four masked men entered
a Hungry Jack's in Auburn just after 8:30 last night carrying multiple weapons
threatening staff and customers. The robbers jumped the counter
and took off with cash. Police say they fled
in a silver Honda and are appealing for witnesses. The US Anti-Doping Agency's
investigation into Lance Armstrong's drug use has linked an Australian
to the inquiry. Matt White, who rode alongside
Armstrong in the Tour de France from 2001 to 2003, has been named by another
former team-mate, Floyd Landis, who is central to the inquiry. It comes as the president of Cycling
Australia has called on governments to criminalise doping in sports.

Western Sydney coach Tony Popovic
says he's pleased with the way
his side's playing despite their 1-0 loss to Adelaide
in the A-League overnight. A powerful strike from
Wanderer's Midfielder Mateo Poljak almost had the visitors
in front in the 32nd minute. But just after missing a penalty
in the second half. Reds Argentinain import
Jeronimo Neumann found the back of the net
for the win.

Of course, points-wise
we're not happy, but it's a working progress.

And it's a promoters dream
at Allianz this evening with two superstars of the game - Sydney FC's Alessandro del Piero
and Newcastle's Emile Heskey facing off.

Sacked Wests Tigers coach
Tim Sheens' time with the Kangaroos could be over if Australia loses tonight's
one-off test against New Zealand in Townsville. Sheens knows the importance
of a win to keep the job ahead of next year's World Cup, and he's found an unlikely ally.

If he is the greatest coach I have played under so I know what he can do as a coach and what effect he has on the Australian team. And Panther's flyer Michael Jennings
is reported to be in the sights of new Warriors coach
Matthew Elliot with Penrith apparently keen to
negotiate the star centre's release. Collingwood's Chris Dawes
is set to become a Demon after nominating Melbourne
as his club of choice in the AFL. when they got Quinten Lynch
from West Coast. Melbourne's offer is thought to be
$450,000 a season for four seasons but Collingwood still has
to agree to a deal. And troubled former Demon
Liam Jurrah may get a lifeline at Port Adelaide where new coach Ken Hinkley
de-listed seven players, including David Rodan. Now to JT and today's weather.

Core him what you want, hear hears with the weather. Thank you, silver fox. Have you seen those things on television where they attach a rope to a semi- trailer and pull a truck. We are using a Hercules. To explain what we're talking about, Gary is the Air Commodore here at the RAAF based in Richmond. And Superintendents got white from the NSW Police. Gary, these planes, 34 years in Australia. What have they been doing?Afghanistan, Iraq, humanitarian assistance. They were involved in the Bali assistance 10 years ago and a strong horse for the last 34 years. This model, since 1958.Instead of carrying people, we will be pulling the plane. Why do the police do this? It's all about charity, James. We have been involved with an organisation called Special Olympics hearing NSW and we thought we would do something special. This is it. We hoped to have 20 teams here, 400 people, three shots at pulling the plane and we will see the fastest is.It everyone has been eating their cereal this morning. -- we hope.

Brisbane, fine
and mostly sunny. Sydney, a possible
late shower. Canberra,
a few showers. Melbourne,
scattered showers. Hobart,
a few showers. Adelaide, fine. Perth, a shower
or two increasing. And sunny
in Darwin.

Can imagine, the forensic team up against the Asian crime Squad team up against the Rocks police and Seven security. That's right, we have a team. If you're a regular viewer of Sunrise, he would have seen Roy. He gets himself in every single shot.In manages to get on TV all the time.The Roy is a one- man team.He is coming down this morning.Who is looking after us?I know, he is coming year later. We will have them and the Rocks police together because the Rocks police look after us at Sunrise. They put on a lot of events at the Plaza. We are getting together to pull a plain that this morning.Beautiful. Yes, if you do want to infiltrate Seven today, today's the day because Royle will be down and their appalling a plane. -- Roy. -- appalling. Spring is a great time
to get yourself organised and de-clutter your home or office. Officeworks wanted
to kick things off by helping out their mates

at the Australian Literacy
and Numeracy Foundation. The ALNF is
the first national charity dedicated to raising language,
literacy and numeracy standards in Australia. Officeworks wanted to give back by giving their office
a Big Spring Clean makeover. Here you can see that their office
is a little worse for wear. They've outgrown their space
and need some help. So we sent in a team of experts
from Officeworks, led by Interior Designer
Romy Alwill, to start the process
of de-cluttering. They provided all the new furniture,
fixings and splashes of colour.

La it a has a good sign that the literacy and numeracy Foundation has outgrown their office space. You can help at home too
by participating in the Share-A-Book Program,
by donating old books to Officeworks who then give them
to marginailised communties. You can help ALNF teach more kids
the vital literacy skills needed to succeed in today's world
by donating now at alnf.org

They are just wonderful and the work a lot in Indigenous communities because four after five Indigenous children cannot read or write and they are just an extraordinary organisation.You think how quickly your kids up roadblocks. Than ever going to read those books. Again. -- they are another. Indeed, good on you, Officeworks. App of the Week time now.

We do miss the band around here, don't we? This application is called Run Pee. It has been around for a couple of years but it is a beauty. You go to the movies, take your soda or you might have a deal with a friend before you go in and you think, this movie is 2.5 hours long, when I make it to the end?So you can urinate directly into your iPad?No! The last movie I saw was Bambi. I cannot remember.Seeing Simon urinating in the middle of Bambi.That LA police movie. End of Watch. I go to it and there is notes. People sat through these movies and said, now has a good time to P. - Make urinate. Chris says, running late, you can read the synopsis of the first three minutes of the movie. But the best first time to urinate if you are going to see End of Watch. Oops, low battery. When might pause after the Gold AK- 4740 minutes into the movie. You have four minutes. -- when Michael Pauls out of that gold AK- 4740 minutes into the movie. So the jacket pocket, it will vibrate at 40 minutes. You have a leak, come back, and you are good to go. It is an American thing. When they have those huge big so thes.The is it only three-minute blocks? Is there is set blow-up application for a number two? -- is there a separate application? That was application of the week. Or application of the wee.

We have local reaction. Also on the way -
a logistical nightmare. We're live to LA
as the shuttle 'Endeavour' is dragged through the streets. But next - it's OK to fail. The new advice from teachers
dividing opinion.

Excuse me, is your
toothpaste working?
Yeah, of course. Time for a quick check?
Have a look. Bacteria?
But I brushed
this morning. Not with Colgate Total Toothpaste. VOICEOVER: A build-up of bacteria in your mouth can lead to common dental problems. Colgate Total is clinically proven to protect against bacteria for up to 12 hours. Try it
and come back tomorrow.

Let's see.
Wow! Where's all that bacteria? I'm impressed.

We check our prices...
We check our prices... BOTH: ..at least twice a day,
so you get the lowest price. You just said what I said.
That's the whole idea. That's the whole idea? VOICEOVER: Officeworks
twice-daily price checks. If you've got the big ideas,
Officeworks has the lowest prices.

How would you feel if a teacher
told your child it was OK to fail? That's the basis of a new education
movement in the US. It's a counter
to the self-esteem movement where all kids are told
they're special.

In a moment we'll ask -
could it work here in Australia? But first, Brian Williams tells us this new idea is based
on an old virtue.

What is, y'know?A combination of resilience and focusing independently. When you get knocked down, you bounce back up.These two men are among the primary drivers of the grit movement. Dave is the founder of KIPP, and network of charter schools serving low income city kids. Dominic Randolph is the Head Master of river Dale country school, a prestigious private school. These two leaders have joined together to develop what they call character education. Their message is, character skills are crucial. They're just as important for kids from tough backgrounds as they are kids from well-off families. But they are warning to the children and their parents to have been a part of the so-called trophy generation. This new movement might come as a big shock in a society that has valued self-esteem above all else. Teaching in the 90s, there was a sense that everyone had to be rewarded, where people didn't want kids to experience failure. When you enter the workforce, it is not all blue ribbons and it is not all everyone is equal.

all blue ribbons and it is not all
everyone is equal.We, as a country, as a world, face an almost challenges and we need to make sure that kids and adults have the type of capacities in order to face up to those challenges.In most KIPP classrooms, they have found a way to work grit into the lesson plan. Struggle, character and determination.You can get into what school culture moments when they do fail and found out it is not that easy.We know we are not perfect, we make mistakes every day and it is something we grow from. Both men say that grit, character education has raised academic performance.

The interesting idea. It is a shame it has to be a movement. Let's ask a leading educator
Dr Timothy Hawkes from the King's School and our resident psychologist,
Dr Michael Carr-Gregg. Good morning. Dr Hawkes,
do we need to teach more grit here?

The notion of

The notion of being able to fail and still feel good about yourself is one that we would call resilience. Do you think we need more grit here?We do need more grit because no greater worthy endeavour it is ever achieved without some sort of modicum of pain. Really, with the rise of the whole accountability movement in education, tables and national results and school websites, we are seeing schools more and more teach to those sorts of things. The day they leave school, they are not going to worry about the major imports and exports of Zambia, the split infinity is -- split infinitives and the joys of quadratic equations. The thing that we neglected our peril his character education. This is what we think it is about, character education. To be able to teach resilience in this rather bubble- wrap to a generation which threatens to enthuse a society with people that are unable to be able to cope with failure.

Would problems is this approach causing?You're giving kids trophies for no reason, irrespective of their actual achievements. If you keep showing children they are great all the

achievements. If you keep showing
children they are great all the time, they end up with an exalted view of their own merit and abilities. They have a congenital inability to associate effort without a -- with an outcome. It is a move their headmaster could translate the Latin phrase for, which is Taurus excreta us.The latter in scholars out there will love that.Dr, the last time we discussed the nature of a trophy generation, we had a lot of negative feedback.Parents saying, how dare you tell my child that he or she is nothing special? But it is not really about that. It is about building positive characteristics but I'm certain people will be out there saying, hang on, do not try and teach my kid values, just give them information. It is my job to teach them who to be.I would love it if in fact that job was undertaken faithfully but unfortunately realistically I think that many, too many students are not being taught how to cope with failure but they have been protected and deliver a load existence and are protected from the hard edges of life and we need schooling experiences we're a child is going to dangle on the end of an abseiling rope and done just about to take some of my boys off to another school and there will be some nasty boys who will throw things at my boys. We call it cricket. To be actually able to cope with failure with the umpire raising his finger, without going into an absolute pink fit, this is a very important and I think that for those parents are actually protect their children, the fruit of their loans from failure and so on, it's for a form of child abuse because they are not preparing them for the real world which is going to come up to them. A short, sharp ball. Fend off all get very sore. For you're not doing them any favours.Michael, Audi teach resilience and persistence?With respect to our American cousins, we have been doing it for years in Australia, ahead of the world. A program run called Sensibility. Strength based resilience the program integrating all the important messages that the doctor has been talking about into the curriculum taught by the regular classroom teacher appropriately trained and adequately resourced. Bake make very much Michael and Dr Timothy. We're not far
from the latest news and weather. Plus, the unexpected winner
of the Nobel Peace Prize. Also coming up - make sure you see this very
special report from Simon. Some beautiful pictures from Uluru as he teams up
with some legends of music. And stand by for the 'Endeavour's
final trip. We're live to LA
as the shuttle stops traffic.

Mint?

Thank you.

They're new Eclipse...Chewy Mints.

Oh! They are chewy. Mm-hm. And minty.

Hmm. You look fresher. Mm-hm. I'm Iceman.

Don't be ridiculous. Ha! New Eclipse Chewy Mints.

Welcome back. To America now, where the space shuttle Endeavour is undergoing its final ever journey.

It's being paraded
through the streets of LA en route
to the California Science Center. Our US correspondent Angela Cox
is amongst all the action. Have you seen it yet, Ange?

Has it got any parking ticket or speeding fines?Hardly. It is going at a snail's pace. We are waiting on the street, it should be coming any minute. It left the airport hangar at about 2am local time. It went a few kilometres, but took it a few hours. Then it was parked in a shopping centre car park, which was a great opportunity for the locals to get a look at it. It looks pretty banged up. You can certainly see the scars from those 15 missions. As one woman put it, it is like the wrinkles on a beautiful woman space. You want to see that. That is the history of the Space Shuttle. When it was up there, it was going faster than a speeding bullet, about 27,000 km/h. On the ground it is going about 3km/h. It will take two days to get to its new home, about 25 kilometres away. The reason it has been at the shopping centre for eight hours is because they have been taking down power lines, traffic lights and parking meters to get it through the streets. They also chopped down 400 trees. It is a big deal here in Los Angeles.I want to pack in the shuttle spot down at K-Mart.We need to send the NSW Police down there to help bullet.Yes, with their teacher.

and vice-presidential candidates
Joe Biden and Paul Ryan have gone head to head
in their first and only debate before the election. Who came out on top? There probably wasn't a real winner. It was not like we saw with the presidential debate, where Obama bonnet. Everybody said rummy clearly one that, and he clearly enjoyed a bumper in the polls. But of these men were strong. There were a lot more aggressive than we saw in the presidential debate. Joe Biden, a bombers right-hand man, went in there with a lot more debate experience. He has an extensive background in foreign policy. Paul Ryan was always going to be good with the numbers and the economy, but people were worried about how he policy. He surprised people and really held his own. If there was a winner, it would be Joe because he did what he had to do. He really stemmed the that presidential debate, and levelled the playing field. He got a few good jabs in there. There is an infamous quote in than out, Mitt Romney talking about the 47% of American see basically called bodgers. But no real

'Time' magazine decided
to publish some photos of Paul Ryan lifting weights
and working out. Was this sanctioned
by the Republican Party?

No, absolutely not. Those pictures are something to look at, Ardbeg? One of Ryan's Assistance has said it was in poor judgement of the magazine to publish these on the day of the debate. They say these photos were taken from the magazine's person of the issue, and that the magazine promised never to publish them. The magazine said they never made such a promise. And why wouldn't they but then if they are newsworthy? If you are talking about poor judgement, one which could pose for the photos in the first place?He looks like a distant relative of a mode.It is not a good book for vice-president. Hopefully we will see the shuttle later on.

The man convicted of murdering Australian
heart surgeon Dr Victor Chang has just touched down in Malaysia after being deported
to his home country. Seven News reporter Adam Walters
is in Kuala Lumpur. When Chew Seng Liew was last at
Kuala Lumpur international airport, he left here
as a convicted extortionist. In the era
just before the introduction of global criminal databases, Chew Seng Liew was able
to enter Australia and commit one of the most notorious
crimes in our history. 21 years later, the 69-year-old
is back in his native Malaysia as a free man. Having secured his release
from prison five years before his full sentence
was due to expire, Liew was driven out of Long Bay
early last night, straight to the airport
for immediate deportation. Our Immigration officials were very
keen to block the media's gaze, going to extreme lengths
to avoid the cameras by deploying two decoy cars
for the short drive to Mascot. But there was no hiding Liew
on the flight. He sat at the back of the plane, flanked by four immigration
officials. Even then Liew made
for a sinister sight, pulling a black hood very his head
in trying to conceal his face. He showed no obvious signs
of the serious medical problems on which he based his successful
application for early release. The five rows immediately
in front of Liew were kept clear of passengers, most of whom oblivious to a
notorious killer in their midst. Liew is about to reunite with his
family, including his daughter - who's said to be delighted to have
her father back for her wedding. This irony of this reunion could be hardly be any more
distressing and disturbing for the children of Victor Chang - who will NEVER get to see
their father again. Olympic champion Ian Thorpe
has revealed he's spent most of his life
battling crippling depression. Also confessing
he's contemplated suicide and used binge drinking
to manage his moods. during the lead-up
to the 2004 Athens Olympics. The revelations come for
the 30-year-old's new autobiography which is being released next month. Thorpe has also used the book
to deny ongoing speculation that he's gay.

Wild weather conditions are set
to ease this weekend after a cold snap brought chaos to the east coast of Australia
yesterday. Heavy snow and ice resulted
in major road closures and saw a number
of emergency rescues. Officially it's spring but yesterday,
winter made a brief return. In the New South Wales
Blue Mountains, temperatures plummeted below zero. Roads became ski runs as more than 15 centimetres of snow
fell in some suburbs, taking locals by surprise. This is, um, by far
the heaviest snowfall I've ever seen in Katoomba,
let alone just in spring. Heavy snow and ice forced the
closure of major roads in the area, including the Great Western Highway. Emergency crews had to rescue
drivers from 300 vehicles. -3 with the wind chill
at the moment - great weather! The east coast low was felt
in Sydney too, heavy rain drenching the west. I'm still waiting
for climate change to hit. The icy blast caught bushwalkers
unprepared - six had to be rescued,
south of Canberra. A similar story for two teenagers
at Charlotte Pass in Thredbo. Not usual to be carrying these sort
of rescues at this time of year. Across the border and the cold snap led to the rescue
of a group of school students in the Victorian Alps. A little bit cold,
probably a little bit scared too but they seem to be good. And even in the north - Queensland
was feeling the wintry chill. In Brisbane, they were bringing
their jumpers out of storage... ..while some made the most
of the frosty weather. I've got heaps! This is awesome. Many will be happy to see warmer
conditions make a return this weekend.

A controversial deal to sell
Australia's largest cotton farm

Bali bombing survivors
have returned to the hospital that treated victims 10 years ago. Julia Gillard also made
the emotional visit. She thanked staff for their care in the days and weeks
after the terror attack and announced a new medical
training program. The Government will offer
60 scholarships over three years

So more of our friends
from Indonesia can come and train in Australia. The Prime Minister also
pledged $50 million to help train Indonesian nurses
and midwives. Around the world, tributes continue for those killed
in the 2002 Bali Bombings. 10 years on,

hundreds of relatives have gathered
at a memorial site in London The legacy is the bereavement
left behind by the 200 men and women whose lives were cut
tragically short and the relentless work done
by their loved ones to commemorate them. The terrorist attack killed 202
people from 20 different nations. And now with sport,
here's Simon Reeve. The A-League's two superstar
recruits will come together in Sydney this evening in what's been described
as a key moment in the evolution of the A-League. World class strikers Alessandro
del Piero and Emile Heskey face off when Sydney FC take
on the Newcastle Jets in front of more than 30,000 fans
at Allianz Stadium. In last night's match, another international import,
Argentinian Jeronimo Neumann, sealed a 1-0 victory
for Adelaide United against A-League newcomers
Western Sydney. The Kangaroos will go
into tonight's test with the Kiwis as heavy favourites in front of thousands of
enthusiastic North Queensland fans. A win should relieve
some of the pressure on Australian coach Tim Sheens who was sacked by the Tigers
last month. Failure tonight could mean
he's culled from the Roos. Also, the NRL
is head hunting AFL ranks again to fill its vacant CEO position. Essendon chief executive Ian Robson
has re-emerged as a key contender, Robson has previously worked
in rugby league helping set up the Warriors. The Australian rugby union board
has employed a global firm to search for a replacement
for out-going CEO John O'Neill after his 14 years at the helm. ARU chaiman Michael Hawker is hopeful to have someone
before Christmas and isn't ruling out a foreigner to pair with New Zealand born
Wallabies coach Robbie Deans. And champion racehorse Pierro is set to start
the shortest priced favourite in Caulfield Guineas history today
at $1.20. It'll be the colt's ninth win in
a row if he crosses the line first but the 3-year-old has
a big target on his back. Yes, he does. But I'm not going
to think about that. Because, you know,
he doesn't know that. After only eight races, Pierro is already valued
at about $24 million.

Some more victories will bring that up into the 30s. Big money. He comes from a long pedigree of resources.Do you think what has's mother might have been Penelope O'Keeffe?It has been great for racing. Coming from a very good pedigree himself, J T. Hanging out with some of my breast friends this morning, because tomorrow at the annual Pink motorcycle ride is on, with people like Tracy. And this is Geoff. But they get dressed up in pink, they dress that bike in pink, they dress themselves in pink. It is not only for men and women, it can be for dogs. This is tax and Bundy. They're great supporters of the right. It is sponsored by Harley Davidson, but you don't have to have a Harley Davidson. You can even have a script or a moped. This is all about the motorcycling community doing their bit for breast cancer.It absolutely is. How exactly does it work? What happens tomorrow?Were it hope to have over 1,000, maybe 1,500, gathering at the Mean Fiddler hotel. That is in Sydney. In Melbourne, you can get on the website and check out the location.And you can still register and come along and join?Absolutely. It is open for registration until midday today. We have over 500 riders registered or tomorrow. And you are registered?I am. This will be my third year

This is an example. Bianca's outfit and motorcycle styling is a perfect example of what people do tomorrow. I think this is a bit of an understatement.The scariest thing is that it is the big, tough blokes that tend to dress up like this. This is just an example of the blokes, yes. Scott, last year, tried to get Larry a bit under the influence.Yes, it was a weird situation. We did not see Larry for the rest of the weekend.No, who went missing.If you have a motorbike, or you have a friend or partner who has a motor bike and you want to be a Pelian passenger, just visit the website. It is a fantastic experience. Can you imagine 1,500 motorcycles cresting pink cruising down the road? If you can, get involved. If you cannot, you can still denied.I think Larry was found on the Monday, with fluffy handcuffs on. And he had a dragon fruit in his mouth.Just another weekend for married.

Julian Assange and Mark Zuckerberg
were among the names nominated for this year's
Nobel Peace Prize. But in the end,
it wasn't even a person. As we've reported in the news - this year's honour went
to the European Union. During the ceremony, the head of
the Nobel Institute, Geir Lundestad, declared that globally
we're sailing into calmer waters. "The long-term trend "is that the world is indeed getting
more peaceful", he said. So are we living
in less volatile times? Let's bring in our
foreign affairs editor, Keith Suter. Good morning. First up, your reaction
to the winner.

Is it deserving? I think so. There were a number of names, as he proposed. Julian Assange was on there. Also, the American academic who has been behind the People Power revolution in the so-called Arab Spring, Jean Sharp. He was also on the list. In the end, they went for the European Union, as a way of reminding people that the EU has been able to stop people going to walk. If you think back, for a thousand years the French and the Germans have fought each other, involving Australians on two occasions. Now we have gone for an entire generation without France and Germany being at war, because they now are due to the corridors of power in the European Union. It has been a nice reminder about how it has been possible to use trade to bring the world together, and countries one that conduct thoroughfares mainly through committee rooms rather then battlefields. It is a bit of a surprise, but I think it is a good decision.You know, it is one of those things. We should be thankful for politicians, even when we shake our heads at bad behaviour, because otherwise we would be at war with each other. Do you think the timing of this is important? As Europe is showing signs of fraying around the edges, with riots in Greece and big demonstrations in Spain?One of the complaints about the Nobel Peace Committee is they have a tendency to intervene to use the prize as a way of trying to shape future events. It could be argued that what they have done is to say, look, remember how half a century ago we had these European giants who brought countries together out of the ashes of World War 2 and World War I? Now, what we are dealing with, instead of giant, is pygmies. Look at the leaders but we have now got in Europe. They are not even leaders, they are followed was. They work out where the crowd is running and they run in front of the crowd. Very different from the people who created the foundations of what is now big European Union half a century ago. I think, in a sense, the Nobel committee is saying, look, why can't we get back to where we were? Big picture stuff, being able to come together across national lines and tribal divisions. So, yes, I think from that point of view it could be quite controversial, because they're being lectured by the Nobel committee. And Norway is not a member of the EU. They have stayed outside.Certain countries at side of Europe will see this as you are putting themselves on the back. That is one of the risks that you run. It could easily be seen as a committee awarding fellow white people. They have got to develop more than international focus.The institute named countries like the Philippines and Indonesia as hot spots, obviously our neighbours. What are other places of instability?What they have done here it is identify areas where you have got nuclear confrontation, like Kashmir between India and Pakistan. Right on the border, but I nuclear-armed. That could be the cause of a conflict. Indonesian and the Philippines, obviously there you have got Islamic insurgents. What is missing is some of the usual favourites like Iraq and Afghanistan, were clearly there is a lot of violence going on. Problems in Africa are continuing. They are not normally on our radar, but they certainly significant. And of course, Latin America, a country like Colombia which is basically run by drug lords. It is a reminder that there are a lot of problems. But the good news is that the overall level of conflict has actually gone down. The most dangerous time to have lived in the last 100 years or so was 1,900 to 1950, with the two world wars which began in Europe. Beginning with the Korean what we saw a total reduction in the number of conflicts and the total number of people killed in wars. That is what I think the head of the Nobel committee was alluding to last night, when he said that overall, the world is becoming safer.It is amazing to think that we live in the most peaceful time in the history of nations.It is, if you think about it. The number of people who actually do the fighting here in Australia is very small stop most people watching this program, if they are there certain generation, have had no military background what's the weather. We have got no soldiers in parliament. In the old days you would have people speaking from that experience in warfare, now we don't even have that. It is a much more peaceful time, but obviously the risks of terrorism, religious problems around the world, etc. But generally speaking, it is a much safer time to read.But they carbon tax! The carbon tax!(LAUGHTER). OK, we have to go. Don't break the desk, we cannot afford any one. We may not be at war, but we are paying $5 more for our electricity! Coming up, should victims choose the punishment for that offenders? That is after 9am.And Gangnam style has the world talking, but can it survive a live dance-off with the Macarena? See why the Nobel Peace Committee did not look too keen it is beyond me.We are spreading peace in here.Next up, Simon Reef meets two legends of music. A very emotional journey took Australia's spiritual heart.

Now to to the Heart of the nation
in more ways than one. Uluru isn't just postcard-perfect, it's also the sacred home
of the Ananu people. And this week - they opened up
their home for a very special event. It was a concert
aimed at uniting black and white. Among the guests - some legends of music, including
John Butler and Shane Howard. Our Simon Reeve got
a front row seat. ('SOLID ROCK' PLAYS)

Just as time and the elements
have shaped Uluru, in turn the great rock has shaped
the lives of many people. For tens of thousands of years
it was the first Australians - the Anangu of the central
western desert region - who hunted by its billabongs
and sought to understand its spirit. ('SOLID ROCK' PLAYS) Modern-day travellers
are also humbled by Uluru. A visitor here in 1981,
a young musician, was so inspired he wrote a song
that struck a lasting chord with Australians - black and white. Shane Howard couldn't have known
back then But

But Solid Rock would become much more than an iconic Australian rock song. It would change the course of his life forever. 30 years on, he is back, in this amazing country to perform it at a very special event. And we are lucky enough to share it with you.

Started writing here, on first night
I wrote, "nothing changes", it wasn't finished here,
went to Alice Springs

And once you have seen the beauty of the culture, and the intelligence of it, and then to see the wreckage and the chaos and the racism, it made me angry. I thought, this relationship was so important for us to get right, as a nation. Otherwise we can never hold our heads up in the world.

It was still 10 years before Mabo and in the 30 years since 'Solid
Rock' challenged our attitudes, Shane has devoted his life
to the cause. The Other Side of the Rock concert, with the imprimatur
of the Mutitjulu Community, was his way of bringing
black and white together in celebration of family. John Butler played a big part in it. we need common ground and music
is a wonderful common ground. For all of us, it's a wonderful
conduit a wonderful medium. Something Bob Marley said, "When
music hits you you feel no pain, "talk big and heavy things sometimes "and it is like a spoon full of
sugar to help the medicine go down.

Even without the words attached, it makes us think certain things, and gives us tingles. The minute you put some intention into that prose, like solid rock, that is living heritage. That is living reconciliation. That song was birth to here and has been working ever since it was written to heal the scars.

In the shadow of Uluru, those scars
are apparent at Mutitjulu, a still troubled community but a long-promised pool
is about to built for the kids. And five years
after the intervention, there are signs of hope.

We are trying to get a happy story at to Australia, to say, come and visit Uluru and we will tell you the story. This is a celebration of good news. For instance, our primary school, with the kids go to school, we have the highest attendance rates in the Northern Territorian. The community is helping itself. The profit goes to subsidise the food. These young fellows playing football, in our community they are not allowed to play football on this they have a job.Really?Yes.That is a good incentive, because they all want to play for two. Yes, and we had a 70% employment rate among to the young men. We spent three or four days' camping under the stars, and then headed to Uluru. It just came out of the horizon. When you look at it now, there is no question why it is sacred. The minute you look at it, it makes you feel something deep and powerful and mystical. When you were driving towards it, and that rock concert of the horizon, it gives you the chills. It makes you feel like you're part of something. It is the heart of this nation in so many ways.

That connection the Anangu have
with their land. I wish all Australians
could stand in this spot because then they
would be connected to it, this much bigger story, because you
can't help but feel that stuff. Back in the Goanna days
when we did spirit of place, the album, that reason,
you feel the spirit, of this place. Hard to convey in pictures
or photos but it is powerful. It's what we share with the world
when we talk about Australia. We go on about this and that,
the boom and what else, but these are the postcards
we send across the world to people, because we are so proud
of the land, so connecting that with history
and the first people only makes it a deeper connection.

A song that touched people, a life that changed,
the journey for Shane, indeed all of us, continues. As John said, "there are no sides,
this is us, we are Australians, "our feet are in the earth." They say in part of Scotland
and Europe it takes 600 years before your
family is considered local so we've got a little way to go!

But let's get the journey going.

We will see the whole performance led to run. Above that whole idea of a life well lived. And Shane Howard has certainly done that. It is in him, the music. He has devoted his life to helping nurture young Aboriginal artist. Indigenous people in this country need champions, and in that man right there, they have a fantastic champion.John Butler made a really good point. Kitty so spiritual out there, I would suggest that every kid should have an excursion at there. It -- it is so spiritual. It makes you feel the connection to this country.Also on the way this morning, no classrooms and no teachers. Apparently

But next - it was the speech that
made headlines around the world. Will it be a game changer
for Julia Gillard?

heart surgeon Victor Chang has been reunited with his family
in Malaysia. Chiew Seng Liew was greeted
at the airport by his son Andrew with a welcome-home gift. The convicted murderer suffers
from Parkinson's disease and his family hope his return
will see his health improve.

I hope that he can recharge himself
when he sees our family back, the power of love.

Liew was released from Sydney's
Long Bay Jail last night after spending 21 years in jail
for shooting Dr Chang in a botched extortion attempt
in 1991.

A man has died after being hit
by a car in Melbourne this morning. Police believe he was attempting
to cross a road in Hoppers Crossing shortly after 3:00 when he was hit
by a Toyota sedan. The man is his 50s
died at the scene. Two women, in their 20s, were inside
the car but not harmed. Police are looking for witnesses. Firefighters in Melbourne have shut

highly flammable cleaning products. Firefighters had to use foam
to put the blaze out. The driver escaped
but the van has been destroyed.

They say cops are tops. Cops are evidently very fast these days as well. Check out this. A police Porsche. Better than a regular cop car, isn't it?Get that out on your autobahn, JT.See you soon. This week may well go down as a defining moment
for our top two politicians. Apart from the Peter Slipper affair, accusations of sexism
and misogyny were the theme. The Prime Minister received
international praise for her attack on Tony Abbott. Here's a quick reminder.

I will not be lectured about
sexism and misogyny by this man. I will not.

by this man. Not now, not ever. The Leader of the Opposition says that people who hold sexist views
and who are misogynists are not appropriate for high office. Well, I hope the Leader of the
Opposition has got a piece of paper and he is writing out
his resignation because if he wants to know
what misogyny looks like in modern Australia, he doesn't need a motion
in the House of Representatives, he needs a mirror. That's what he needs.

Let's bring in our Master of Spin -
Jane Caro. Morning. Overseas, they loved it. The New Yorker wrote, Obama supporters "might be wishing
their man would take a lesson "from Australia".

In the UK, the conservative
Telegraph described the speech as a "brilliant political pivot." While the feminist website
jezebel.com described it as an 'epic speech'
by a 'badass mother'.

So Jane, was it that good?

As a speech, it has got well over one million hits on YouTube. They wouldn't be a politician in the world to would not give their eye teeth for that. We do not give hits on YouTube to political speeches. On any measures, a brilliant piece of rhetoric. It resonated with women, not just in Australia but right across the world and not just with women but with a lot of men who felt uneasy about some of the ways that women are treated not just the Prime Minister that women in public office, in positions of power. I think that there would hardly be a woman who wanted a seat at a decision-making table at some point in her career who has not reversed a speech just like that in her head at three o'clock in the morning and when Gillard delivered it, it really, really resonated.He was righteous anger.It had its critics. Peter Hartcher was very critical

Was it hypocritical to attack Abbott and not launch into Peter Slipper
too?

She was attacking Abbot in defence of Peter Slipper.The in a way, not. She had me at, I will not be lectured by you on sexism and misogyny. A lot of women are sick of being told by people who have never experienced it, he could be called men, what it is and what they should feel offended by. The other part is, to be honest, Peter slipper's text messages are sleazy and stupid an awful but quite frankly, I have been known to call male appendages by some pretty rude names myself and I do not know a lot of women or men who haven't on occasion. It is an equal opportunity insult. What is really sexist is not that we're naughty about one another's naughty bits but that you believe the possession of a particular set of genitalia therefore should limit your opportunities or should make a difference to what kind of things you can aspire to. You make a pretty good case that while Peter slipper's text messages were pretty icky, sexist they weren't.Is Tony Abbott try to limit Julia Gillard's opportunities?There was the abortion pill debate where he wanted to continue the veto on
