This program is captioned live. MELISSA DOYLE: Julia Gillard
puts Tony Abbott to shame in the latest opinion survey. More than 40 Australian tourists
recovering after a terrifying bus crash
in the United States. Veterans outraged as an expert
questions the Kokoda campaign. (REGAL MUSIC PLAYS)

Royals from around the world
gather for a lavish celebration. And, new mum Ada Nicodemou, controversial radio host
Kyle Sandilands and Hollywood megastar Ben Affleck. I've made some movies
I'm really proud of and I think are really special. This is the best one that I've been
involved with and I'm extraordinarily proud
of this.

(SONG) # Reach out for the sunrise # Reach out for the sunrise. # Right across Australia,
this is Sunrise on Seven. Fom Brekky Central,
Mel and Andrew.

Good morning, happy Monday. Kochie still on holidays so here is Andrew. Thank you, nice to be here, as I say. Did you see Syle last night? I missed it? -- did you see Kyle.You can ask the questions this morning. I bet I can.

Also ahead this morning -
lives at risk - police furious at a Facebook site revealing the identities
of unmarked patrols. Plus, fight the fizz -
the frightening new figures showing we each down 100 litres
of soft drink a year. That's a staggering 267 cans each.

You can't be into that many?No, I cut back, 2en had 50. And she's back! The Cash Cow is back to Sunrise.

Prepare to catch the code word
so you can win yourself 10 grand. But first, let's begin
with all the latest news. Good morning, Nat. Good morning. Prime Minister Julia Gillard has
surged in the latest opinion poll, taking her biggest lead
over Tony Abbott in 18 months. But all eyes will be
on the Treasurer today, The speech that went
around the globe... I will not be lectured about sexism
and misogyny by this man. ..and did wonders
for the Prime Minister's image. Julia Gillard's popularity
shot 10 points clear of Tony Abbott in today's Nielsen poll - her biggest lead
since February last year. Her approval rating,
also at an 18-month high. In contrast, disapproval
of Tony Abbott is up to 60% - a new personal record.

But Labor is still lagging
in the two-party preferred although it is closing the gap. Our Prime Minister has had to cop
more attacks than most people have. She's very strong. The good result could come undone - a new book by former Labor MP
Maxine McKew exposing fresh details about the plot
which brought down Kevin Rudd. Maxine McKew's book
underlines the fact that Julia Gillard has a lot
of questions to answer. The more you good folk
run down these rabbit holes, the more you are letting Mr Abbott with sliding through
the next election without the slightest bit
of scrutiny. The focus will shift
to the Treasurer this morning when he hands down
his mid-year Budget review. in a bid to keep his promise to return the Budget to surplus
this financial year. Public spending is likely to be
slashed by $3 billion. Some of the savings made
by raising tobacco tax and increasing the cost of visas
for backpackers and migrants. But low- and middle-income earners
are expected to be spared. To a developing story in the US - a gunman is on the loose near a
suburban shopping mall in Milwaukee after opening fire
in a busy hair salon. At least seven people
have been injured in what officials are describing
as a 'mass casualty' situation. Heavily armed police
have surrounded the building. SWAT teams are searching
nearby for the gunman. All Australian tourists involved
in a bus crash in the United States have been released from hospital. The 48 passengers suffered
only minor injuries when their driver died
of a suspected heart attack on the way back to Las Vegas
after a tour of the Grand Canyon. Most of the group was from the
Rodriguan Social Club of Victoria. The Department of Foreign Affairs
says six passengers were flown
to hospitals in Las Vegas, but have since been released. Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong has made his second public
appearance in as many days. He welcomed more than 4,000 cyclists taking part in a fundraiser bike
ride for his LIVESTRONG charity in Texas. But the 7-time Tour de France winner
didn't have much to say about his doping scandal, repeating the exact lines
from his previous speech. Obviously, it's been an interesting, and as I said the other night,
at times very difficult few weeks. People ask me a lot,
"How you doing?" And I tell them, I say, "Well, I've been better
but I've also been worse." Cycling's governing body
will announce tonight whether it'll accept
or appeal Armstrong's lifetime ban and loss of his titles.

Lebanese soldiers have fired
guns and tear gas to push back hundreds of protesters trying to storm the government
headquarters in Beirut. The crowd came from a funeral for a
top Lebanese intelligence official who was assassinated in a massive
car bombing on Friday. The protesters are blaming Syria
for the murder, saying their own government
is too close to the Assad regime. 'Twilight' star Robert Pattinson
is waking up in Sydney this morning. The British heart-throb
arrived yesterday morning and was greeted by
a small group of fans. Wearing dark sunglasses
and a beanie, he was lead by security to a waiting
car - and made a quick exit. He's here to promote the final film
in the vampire saga - 'Breaking Dawn: Part 2' - at Moore Park, tonight.

Our Mel Doyle, one on one with Rob later. Stay tuned. Is that going to be on tomorrow?Uh-huh.I don't want to mention any names, Nat, but there is one woman in this ild being who has got that much chance of meeting Robert with Mel and she's already blushing and it's not you.Explain what he means later.

CommSec has released
its quarterly report showing how each of our states
and territories are performing in the economy. Savanth Sebastian is at CommSec.
Morning. Which states are performing
better than others?

Well, Nat, over the past two quarters we highlight Western Australia has led the front. It has been daylight second. We see no reason to shaichg that view just yet, Western Australia leading in four of the 8 indicator. But really, it was the Northern Territory that was moving up the rankings very quickly. Certainly gaining some ground on Western Australia. The other states, the three largest states, Queensland, Victoria as well states, Queensland, Victoria as states, Queensland, Victoria New South Wales coming in a pack. New South New South Wales coming in a pack. New South Wales is starting to see dwelling picking up. Victoria struggling with weakness in manufacturing and then sliping to other states. But points out for the next year, there is some optimism building into the economy, the Reserve Bank is likely to cut rates in the next year and that will certainly prompt a recovery story.

Coming up this morning -
a call for action. Should alcohol companies be sued
like big tobacco? We meet an expert who's ready
to begin the fight. But first, here's Beretts.

will be handed down today. The French stayer is likely to be
penalised a kilo for his Caufield Cup victory, meaning he'll have to carry 59 kilos
in the Cup. Connections admit the penalty
will severely hamper Dunaden's quest to go back-to-back.

Two miles with a penalty,
it's going to be very tough. REPORTER: What sort of penalty
are you expecting. I don't think he should get one
at all, personally. He's probably end up with 59kg,
I would have thought. Craig Williams has confirmed he'll be riding Dunaden
in the Melbourne Cup. The Perth Scorchers are out
of the Twenty20 Champions League after losing to the Delhi Daredevils
by three wickets in Cape Town. The Scorchers could only manage
5/121 from their 20 overs but almost managed to defend
the modest total. The match went down
to the final over with Delhi scraping home
with three balls to spare. Heavy rain resulted
in chaotic scenes at last night's Malaysian MotoGP. Cal Crutchlow was walking away
from his own crash when he was nearly taken out by
Randy de Puniet. Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo
almost crashed out before the race was red-flagged
on lap 14. Dani Pedrosa was awarded
the race win with Lorenzo second
and Casey Stoner third.

And Casey Stoner, back on the bike, back in business, finishing in third place. Great to have him back. Speaking of champions being back on the bike, great Australian, Chad Reid finished fourth in Las Vegas. His first since returning from an ACL injury. Gee, we're ACL injury. Gee, we're great at motor sport.Is Ra inhdy De Puniet his real name? Look a porn star. Was going to be called Grandee Randy but it was taken.Well, Grant is his stage name, he has the weather for us. Let's go.Randy De Puniet needs a pencil moustache, no doubt.Got a pencil.Classic! It's a fun game when you're on the road. We are in a special part of the country that everybody loves at the moment, Airlie Beach, the gateway to the Whitsundays and the Coral Reef. It has been a tough 12 months, since we came up and covered the cyclone, tourism has slowed down. But we want to come up and show we are open for business. We are using it as a launch pad for something exciting. We've never done it before, but it's going to be big week. Let's look at the forecast.

Dozens of Australian tourists
are recovering after a bus accident
in Arizona in the US. The bus was heading back
to Las Vegas after touring the Grand Canyon. It's believed the driver suffered a
heart attack and died at the scene. All 48 passengers were injured
and 6 were airlifted to hospital. 32 of those on board were members of the Rodriguan Social Club
of Victoria. Sunrise correspondent
Nick Etchells is outside the Club. Good morning. How seriously were the club members
injured?

I think we've got a problem? Can you hear me? Alright.Hang in for a second. We lost him.We will come to him in just a moment. But absolutely horrific the numbers. All 48 on board injured, 32 from the one club. And the driver, when he had allegedly had the cardiac arrest, he died at the wheel? Did he? He was kind of dead before the crash even happened.We will take a very quick break and see if we can come back to Nick Etchells in a tick and also whether the alcohol companies sued like the tobacco?That is going to be trisky.

Plus, have you ever wondered
how WiFi was invented? Find out when Dr Karl joins us
at Brekky Central. But straight ahead - positive poll - Gillard gains on Abbott.
But is it just a sympathy vote?

What's making news brought to you
by Australian Pork, with half the fat of red meat
and a valuable source of iron. Get some pork on your fork.

We have made contact with Nick Etchells outside the rod Regan club in Victoria. As you in Victoria. As we were saying, 48 passengers on the bus. 32 from passengers on the bus. 32 passengers on the bus. 32 from the social club where you are. Do we know how they are doing?The six that were seriously injured are also from the club. The worst was broken bones and lacerations but I am happy to report all to report all six have been released from hospital. Now it is a question of getting back together with family and love said ones. We spoke to a man yesterday whose father, aunt and uncle are on the trip. He is off to Arizona this morning to hook up with them and more will be doing the same.Do we have more information about the sequence of events? about the sequence of events?? Bus hit a ravine. Was it because of the cardiac arrest?Exactly. We cardiac arrest?Exactly. We don't know what caused that, what preceded the collision with the lip of the ravine, but the lip of the ravine was elevated which caused the bus to jump in the air and police think that is when most of the injuries were sustained. Remarkably, it went over the ravine, stayed upright and went for another 200 metres before coming to a halt. It is the jump on the ravine that caused the injuries. The fact it stayed upright must have made them as well as they were. Thank you.

Also making news this morning - the boost in the polls
for Julia Gillard from her now famous parliamentary
misogyny speech. The latest Fairfax Nielsen poll
has Ms Gillard up 3 points to 50 as preferred PM.

That's a 10-point lead over
Tony Abbott, who's dropped 4 points. Labor's two-party preferred vote
has risen for the fourth consecutive month,
up one point to 48% while the Coalition remains ahead
on 52%. We'll get more on the poll
later this Sunrise. But tell us - do you think the PM's
rise in the polls is the result of a sympathy vote?

Or is it a result we saw her fired up with that misogyny speech and lot of people were impressed?Or people felt sorry for her falling over? Could be a factor.The fallout? (laughs) Could be a factor.The fallout? (laughs).You hope not, what went on in that week in parliament was just uncomfortable. If you learn from that, if you make a big statement and attack someone, your popularity goes up.She came outlooking strong and defiant, the charactersticks you want in a leader. Seeing someone fired up is not what you like but the characteristics we want in a leader.A sympathy vote related to the speech, sympathy is not what it inspired in me, it was a real respect for her command of that situation.Yes, a lot of women supported -- supported how she spoke that day.Indeed. Moving on.

A war historian is under fire for questioning the importance of
the Kokoda campaign in World War II. Professor David Horner said it was a myth the Japanese
were going to invade Australia. He says Japanese records show they
did not intend to come to Darwin. But veterans of the campaign have
told the 'Daily Telegraph' they saw evidence the Japanese always intended to come
to Australia.

And are deeply insulted by the claims, which are not new claims, actually. This is has been around for quite some time, the theory the Japanese intended to stop in Papua New Guinea and use it as their staging post.Pretty happy to take the veterans' words for it. An incredible moment in history. Debating the facts, and trying not to let the sentiment get in the way, but regardless whether they were coming or not, it shouldn't minimise what was done.I also think too, whether it is seen as one is a big battle or not, they still put their lives on the line. I think that is remarkable.Unless, they did bomb Darwin.

WOMAN: For simple credit solutions, online or instore:

Just after 6:30,
time for the news with Nat. Julia Gillard has had a big win
in the first opinion poll since her now-famous
misogyny speech. In today's Nielsen poll, the Prime Minister's approval rating
jumped five points to reach an 18-month high. Tony Abbott's approval
was also up one point, but his disapproval rate climbed
to its highest level ever. Despite Mr Abbott being unpopular, the Coalition would still win
an election if one was held today. The Coalition holding
on to a 4-point lead in the two-party preferred. But the attention will shift
to the Treasurer this morning when Wayne Swan hands down
his mid-year Budget review. He's expected to announce
$3 billion in cuts. A woman has used a syringe to rob
two fast-food outlets in Brisbane. She entered a Subway store
at Wishart at around 9:00, threatening a female worker with what appeared to be
a blood-filled syringe. The woman fled the scene
with an amount of cash. An ice-cream store at Camp Hill was
robbed about half an hour later. No-one was injured
in either incident. A Sydney primary school
is closed today after a fire destroyed
part of the complex. The blaze broke out
in a Year 1 classroom at Holy Family Primary school
at Emerton late yesterday. Around 30 firefighters
battled the flames but couldn't save the building. It's believed an electrical fault
sparked the fire. Queensland police have spent
the night questioning 12 men following a brawl in the racing
precinct of the Gold Coast 600. Up to 30 people were involved
in the fight at a Surfers Paradise apartment. Two men needed medical treatment.

Police in Victoria are appealing
for the public's help to find the car involved
in a fatal hit-and-run. Father-of-two Richard Purcell
was hit and killed less than a kilometre
from his Mornington Peninsula home yesterday morning. Police believe he may have been
lying on the road when he was hit and the driver may not realise
they struck a person. 80,000 pilgrims have packed
St Peter's Square to witness Pope Benedict
canonise seven new saints. Many wore feathered headdresses
and leather tunics in honour of the first
Native American saint - a 19th century Franciscan nun
who cared for leprosy patients in Hawaii. Several of the new saints
were missionaries with the pope hoping others
will follow their example. He praised each of them for being
heroic and courageous examples for Catholics across the globe.

Hollywood's favourite silver fox,
George Clooney, has been recognised for
his charity work, in Los Angeles. The actor was the guest of honour
at the Carousel of Hope Ball at the Beverly Hilton. With glamorous girlfriend
Stacy Keibler by his side, Clooney played down
his achievements. It's really nice to come out
and support Barbara and all the good work she is doing. She's doing some amazing work with
diabetes, so it's fun to do that. He is a rare combination
of a gorgeous, handsome, dreamboat heart-throb.

Socialite Barbara Davis founded
the organisation with her late husband, Marvin,
in 1977, and has raised almost $100 million
for children with diabetes. In finance news - Wall Street
is trading lower.

The Wallabies are preparing
for forward Scott Higginbotham to be rubbed out
for several matches at a SANZAR judiciary hearing
tonight. All Blacks captain Richie McCaw during Saturday night's Bledisloe
Cup Test at Suncorp Stadium. He's likely to be sidelined for at least part of next month's
season-ending spring tour of Europe. Kiwi coach Steve Hansen labelled
the incident a 'cheap shot'. Perth Glory has moved into equal
top spot on the A-League ladder with a 2-0 win over Melbourne Heart
at NIB Stadium. Goals from Dean Heffernan
and Billy Mehmet ensured a comfortable victory
for the home side. In Wellington, the Phoenix struck
early against Brisbane Roar but the reigning champions
bounced back to salvage a 1-1 draw. Jamie Whincup will take
a 209-point lead into the final three races
of the V8 Supercar season after finishing second to
Will Davison in race 2 at the Gold Coast 600. In another day of drama, Michael Caruso
departed from the pits without one crucial piece of
equipment - a rear wheel. This is what was left
of Ricky Taylor's car following his spectacular crash
on Saturday. Here's what the crash looked like
from Taylor's point of view.

Not good for him. And that is what it was like from his point of view. Not a good spot to be, upside down. He wouldn't be the first person upside down, metaphorically.Good morning to him, he has got to fix it up before Abu Dhabi. GD is at Airlie Beach. How good is it there?You're a god in these parts. They love you in your tight like rududs and in your tight like rududs and your jar of bum cream coming up here on your bike ride. I know you are a fan of the islands. 74 islands, 100 miles of gleaming beaches under a big beautiful blue sky. The word on the sand is that this place rocks. Would I like to you? Would I like to you.There it be it is.

Thank you Leslie Nelson. Let's have a look at the forecast around the globe.

A trough is triggering storms across the country's north,
interior and east. Potentially severe storms
in South-East Queensland while fresh southerlies are
directing showers and highland snow into Victoria and Tasmania.

It's a whacky old country!

Very hot conditions have been in northern New South Wales and South-East Queensland over the weekend. Coffs Harbour, for instance, even on the ocean, 39 degrees on Saturday. But there is a front sliding up through northern New South Wales and South-East Queensland and will start to bring relief of the very hot conditions and maybe about 5 mLs of coastal rain for parts of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.A South Wales and Victoria.A scorcher on cricket.52 degrees in my racesuit, that was my internal temperature.

Plus, the dangers of drinking. Should alcohol companies be sued
like big tobacco? And it's fifty shades
of grey matter - what do Wi-Fi, black holes
and Albert Einstein have in common? Dr Karl gives us the answer next.

And is the answer in some ways... And is the answer in some ways....

SONG: # Live well. # Don't suffer the pain
of heartburn or indigestion any longer than you have to. For heartburn caused by spicy food, alcohol or pregnancy, try fast-acting Gaviscon. Unlike some
antacids which slowly neutralise
stomach acid, Gaviscon works fast, creating a physical
barrier that soothes heartburn
in just 4 minutes. In a clinical study, seven times more people
enjoyed fast relief with Gaviscon versus the antacid tested. Trust Gaviscon and live well.

You're looking at Melbourne
through the Jetstar Skycam. A morning shower
then sunny with a top of 20.

Enjoy your Monday.

Legal action against big tobacco
companies is well established and now there are calls for alcohol companies
to be sued the same way. Each year alcohol consumption causes
more than 5,000 deaths in Australia and sends 80,000 people to hospital. One in five Australians
aged over 14 binge drink. Plus, alcohol costs the economy
a staggering $36 billion a year. Professor Mike Daube
is an expert in public health and is leading
the charge against alcohol. Mike, you're one of the world's
most influential campaigners Why are you turning your attention
to alcohol companies?

Mel, these are both enormous problems. Tobacco kills more people but alcohol causes more social problems. It's not just the sort of thing you see day to day, Kings Cross violence and crime and so on. It is that our young people now are drinking to get drunk, there is enormous concern in the community about drinking among young people. And as with tobacco, with alcohol, we know what could be done to reduce the problems. Not to stop everybody drinking but to reduce the problems and I think we need to take that sort of action now. So why is suing the companies the answer?Well, what we learned with tobacco in the US particularly, is that these big companies can be held to account. There are huge costs to government, health costs, law-enforcement costs, here our police commissioner will tell us about 70% of the police operational budget goes to alcohol. As I said, the Generation Next conference I spoke at on Friday which is about kids, we have to be concerned about our kids. These are companies, massive global companies massive global company that are promoting it to kids, they are undermining action to reduce the problem. I think it is time they were held to account..Governments have a right, I think to sue for the huge costs that you and I, as taxpayers, are incuring because of harms caused by alcohol.What do you see as the culture of alcohol at the moment? I mean, it appears we are pretty big drinkser 3467 pretty big moment? I mean, it appears we are
pretty big drinkser. Independent -- drinkers. I know in the '70 we saw a change in culture with tobacco and not as cool as it once was.It is changing, a lot battle. It takes time, with tobacco it took time but now we are seeing dramatic changes in tobacco. I think our society is getting ready for similar changes to alcohol and in some ways easier. Because the message isn't black and white and don't do it, the message is reduce harms and prevent alcohol abuse among kids. People understand the harms caused by kids. There are huge concerns for parents. Attitudes are changing over the next coming years. We will see action on price, action to reduce access, especially to kids, and I hope we see curbs on various forms of alcohol promotion. I think attitudes are changing, encouragely because of the attitudes of alcohol and parent concern.Thank you.

Many of us use Wi-Fi every day but have you ever wondered
how it was invented? It might surprise you to hear
it happened by accident. And we're about to tell you just what it's got to do with
black holes, Albert Einstein and why your microwave might stop it
working properly.

These are all questions by Dr Karl '50 Shades of Grey Matter' nice. Back in the 70s, scientists John O slven was trying to find black holes evaporating. So trying to look for these black holes evaporating. And the signal, if it happened, would be so small, by the time it got to us, from millions of light years away would be smudged. They had to invent a special form of mathematics to final the black holes. As it turns out they never found the black holes. 10, 15 years later he was working for CSIRO i trying to make Wi-Fi work. The same result, low and behold, Australia has $ behold, Australia has $600 million in royalties from companies who use Wi-Fi, all because of scientists looking for black holes. Wi-Fi got invented because of scientists looking for black holes.Isn't that the history of progress.Yes, Einstein was looking for relativety and we have GPS. So slightly inebriated people in a bar on a Saturday night.You would never see Einstein slightly inebriated on a Saturday night looking for pizza. How long can person go without food? I reckon a turanchula can go without food for a year.One year and 17 days.What are they ingesting?They ate themselves. They ate their own fat, 1 year and 17 days, 126 kilograms of their own fat.You mean they literally carved off their own fat and ingested or just infnlally? Yes.Autofadgeia, I think is the term.This guy was sick of being fat, 200 kilograms. He went to the royal infirmary in dunddy, he said I'm sick of being fat, I am going to fast, you might as well watch me. They monitor him. You can die from a full-on fast, either recovery or fasting itself. For the last eight months, his blood glucose levels went down so low, if it happened to you, and me, half normal, we would like around being stupid: normal is tpaefb to 7 and his it tpaefb to 7 and his tpaefb to 7 and his was two. He lived off water and vitamin pills. He was running low on potassium and they gave him potassium pills.Or beanaunas, so don't not eat for a year unless you are very fat. This is a good one. Why do people forget things when they walk into a room, including why they walk into the room?It happens to all of us, including, I am glad to say my daughters, not just getting senile and mad.

Dr Karl's book 'Fifty Shades
of Grey Matter' is out in November.

Tomorrow?Yes, that's November.How do I follow that?

If you've ever wondered
how to party like a royal or at least
the relative of a royal, Pippa Middleton has released
a new book which might help. NBC News reporter Duncan Golestani
has more. You have to hand it
to Pippa Middleton - turning one figure-hugging dress
into a rumoured 6-figure book deal. It's less than 18 months since she grabbed the spotlight
at her sister's wedding but here she is
with her own front cover, appropriately titled 'Celebrate'. It's serialised in Britain's
'Mail on Sunday' newspaper. It's packed with tips,
glamorous pictures and a bit of an insight, possibly,
into what makes Pippa tick in the real world. It's all about entertaining and
that's something Pippa knows about, the Middleton family made its money
selling party favours. But Kate's younger sister won't be
writing about that risque Paris bash she went to back in April
that got a little embarrassing. This is definitely cupcakes
and candy. For Pippa, whose had a little bit
of media problems of her own, um, this was a chance to kind of
hit the re-set button, talk about something
she's clearly passionate about and also, really kind of introduce
herself to the US. Pippa seems to like life
the other side of the pond, enjoying a trip to New York
last month which some tabloids say
included looking at apartments. So it's all the more surprising she now seems unlikely to be doing
the chat show circuit in the US. A spokesperson for her publisher
says she won't be doing any
interviews. about her sister's topless photos. I know that Pippa's rather offended
by the fact that people think she's cashing in
on her royal connections. Who knows?
Maybe the Queen has some advice. She definitely knows about
having people around. It could mean plenty more material
if Pippa writes a sequel. And royal commentator Rob Jobson
will join us later on Sunrise to talk about Pippa's book.

I like the chapters about her early life playing conquers with Kate, they put lacquer on the conquers to cheat. Biffo!

News is next. Then the decision on whether to formally strip
Lance Armstrong of his tour titles. Plus, the other royal wedding - and this one was just
as spectacular. Find out who got hitched. And, Pitt perfume parody - comedians take aim
at Brad's new Chanel ad. Can't wait to see that,
when we return.

She's back and she's giving away $ She's back and she's giving away $10,000 every day. You need a code word to enter.

MELISSA DOYLE: Julia Gillard
puts Tony Abbott to shame in the latest opinion survey. More than 40 Australian tourists
recovering after a terrifying bus crash
in the United States. Veterans outraged as an expert
questions the Kokoda campaign. (REGAL MUSIC PLAYS)

Royals from around the world
gather for a lavish celebration. And, new mum Ada Nicodemou and Hollywood megastar Ben Affleck. I've made some movies
I'm really proud of and I think are really special. This is the best one
that I've been involved with and I'm extraordinarily proud
of this. (SONG) # Reach out for the sunrise # Reach out for the sunrise. # Right across Australia,
this is Sunrise on Seven. From Brekky Central,
Andrew and Mel. Great to have your company
on this Monday morning. Andrew O'Keefe is in the chair,
as Kochie continues his holiday.

Back at you.He's having a lovely time.

Let's check the latest news.
Here's Nat. Julia Gillard's approval rating
has soared to an 18-month high after her now-famous misogyny
speech, directed at Tony Abbott. It's likely to shore up
her leadership, despite fresh tensions about
her role in Kevin Rudd's downfall. The speech that went
around the globe... I will not be lectured about sexism
and misogyny by this man. ..and did wonders
for the Prime Minister's image. Julia Gillard's popularity
shot 10 points clear of Tony Abbott in today's Nielsen poll - her biggest lead
since February last year. In contrast, disapproval
of Tony Abbott is up to 60% - a new personal record. But Labor is still lagging
in the two-party preferred although it is closing the gap. Our Prime Minister has had to cop
more attacks on her than most people have. She's very strong. The good result could come undone - a new book by former Labor MP
Maxine McKew exposing fresh details about the plot
which brought down Kevin Rudd. Maxine McKew's book
underlines the fact that Julia Gillard has a lot
of questions to answer. The more you good folk
run down these rabbit holes, the more you are letting Mr Abbott get away with sliding through
the next election without the slightest bit
of scrutiny. The focus will shift
to the Treasurer this morning when he hands down
his mid-year Budget review. Wayne Swan is expected
to announce major cuts in a bid to keep his promise to return the Budget to surplus
this financial year. Public spending is likely to be
slashed by $3 billion. Some of the savings made
by raising tobacco tax and increasing the cost of visas
for backpackers and migrants. But low- and middle-income earners
are expected to be spared. A man's died after falling from
a Gold Coast high-rise overnight. The victim was found at the bottom
of the Peppers hotel in Broadbeach just before 1am. Police believe he'd fallen
about 10 metres. Authorities are still trying
to identify the victim and work out how he fell. At least seven people have been
wounded in a mass shooting in the US this morning. Heavily armed police have surrounded
a day spa at Milwaukee There are reports the shooter
walked inside and opened fire. It comes less than three months
after a shooting at a Sikh temple, which left seven people dead. There've been violent scenes
on the streets of Beirut as police clashed with protesters demanding Lebanon's Prime Minister
step down. The violence erupted after the funeral
of the country's intelligence chief, who was assassinated by a car bomb
on Friday.

Gun fire. The shots police fired were in warning. But the warning signs are there for all to see. Tensions never deeply buried are bursting on to the streets. Amid clouds of tear gas, clashes close to the parliament. As angry crowds tried to storm the Prime Minister's office. Lebanon's Government this weekend has teetered close to collapse. And now, violence, after a day of mourning, and mass protests. This was a funeral procession for the country's top intelligence chief. His coffin, cloaked in the national flag, he was an opponent of Syria, murdered by a car bomb, planty, many believe by Syrian agents or their local allies. Opposition groups claim their own Government is dominated by factions all too willing to do President Asad's bidding. The Syrian leader met the international peace mediator today. He wants to mediate a cease-fire but needs all sides to sign up. As they talked a car bomb in Damascus seems to wreck hopes of peace. But for once, the concern is not Syria but its neighbour. Driven by the same sectarian strife, troops restored a measure of calm to Beirut tonight.

Two Tasmanian devils
remain on the run after escaping
from a West Australians Zoo. But their brother Scratchy
is not wild about being re-captured. He destroyed his rescuer's bathroom after two mates
spotted the little devil just north of the zoo in Pinjarra. They called the zoo keeper
for help at 3am "Might have some good news for you,
mate!" "Right?" "Got one of your Tassie devils." I'm going,
"What do you mean by 'got'?" "It's in my bathroom".

Good work, boys.Yep, it was.

Scratchy had been on the run
for six days.

Not happy.

In finance news -
Wall Street is trading lower.

Coming up - a dangerous database. How a Facebook page could be putting the lives
of undercover cops at risk. But first, here's Beretts. A Melbourne Cup weight penalty
for last year's winner, Dunaden, will be handed down today. The French stayer is likely
to be penalised a kilo for his Caulfield Cup victory, meaning he'll have to carry 59 kilos
in the Cup. Connections admit the penalty will
severely hamper Dunaden's quest to go back-to-back.

Two miles with a penalty,
it's going to be very tough. REPORTER: What sort of penalty
are you expecting? I don't think he should get one
at all, personally. He'll probably end up with 59kg,
I would have thought. Craig Williams has confirmed he'll be riding Dunaden
in the Melbourne Cup. Samantha Stosur has gone down
to Caroline Wozniacki in the final
of the Kremlin Cup in Moscow. Stosur bounced back from a sluggish
start to force a decider and grabbed an early break
in the final set. It's Stosur's 12th defeat
from 15 WTA Tour finals. Heavy rain resulted
in chaotic scenes at last night's Malaysian MotoGP. Cal Crutchlow was walking away
from his own crash when he was nearly taken out
by Randy de Puniet. Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo
almost crashed out before the race was red-flagged
on lap 14. Dani Pedrosa was awarded
the race win with Lorenzo second
and Casey Stoner third.

Great to see Casey back on the bike and doing well for Australia too. Hmm! The way Randy de Puniet came off that bike he will be a little less randy and a little more De Puniet.While you ponder that, let's go to Grant. Who has the weather from beautiful Queensland is. Beautiful Airlie Beach. Gateway to the Whitsundays, on the mainland. What a community! What a place. You know what? The kids here are so gorgeous. They smile harder than any other kids in Australia. They smile so hard, their teeth fall out. What happened to you? Don't put it down, the whole of Australia has got to see it. When did they fall out, darling? The other day?Um, one at the doctor and one at home.Dad didn't pull it out did he?Dad pulled the one at home and the doctor pulled the other one.Dad! Did he tie a bit of string to the door.He said he was cleaning it and ripped it out.Wow!Only fall for that once though.Hope the fairy paid you a lot for that one, if not, call Child Protection. I got to say, over here is Kev. And Kev makes a pretty mean expresso daiquiri that puts a bit of Gangnam into your 'Gangnam Style', he runs the Fish Divine and is a bit of a counsellor? Bit of a counsellor!Sorry about that. Terrible joint, mate. Terrible.Yeah, get sick of it one day. Maybe not.What do you do when you retire? How do you top this?You don't.You could travel around the world, Australia has a darn good backyard?Europe, people everywhere. People worried here it is too dear, the dollar is too high. People should come to the Whitsundays once in their life and not worry if it is $ in their life and not worry if it is $20 more. It $20 more. It is special and not packed. I went to Whitehaven beach and not seven people on a beach 50 kilometres long. Go to Sardinia? It is the unspoiled nature.Times have been tough since the cyclone and then the FGC?And the dollar. Everyone has an excuse. But that is the same as ten years ago. It is the unspoiled nature of it and just once in your life, come once. Come here, get on boat, see the Whitsunday islands, it shouldn't be about the price, it should be about the experience.Which we will prove to you this week. Let's look at the forecast.

I'm not one to tell you where to go on your next holiday, that's for you to decide, but the rest of Australia, potentially think about holidaying in your backyard. It is a pretty good darn backyard. Think about holiday locations just like this. Do your country a favour. Certainly crossed Sardinia off my list for this year. They don't call it, 'Pack them in like Sardinians' for nothing. 22 million people in two squall kilometres.

Julia Gillard's recent
misogyny speech to Parliament has translated into a boost for
the PM in the latest opinion poll. For more, we're joined from Canberra by Seven News political reporter
Mia Greves. How much of a boost has Ms Gillard
received from the speech?

Is it obvious to the pollsters? Well, good morning, the latest poll gives Julia Gillard a 10 point lead over Tony Abbott. Her biggest margin since February last year. She is now seen as the preferred prime minister by 50% of voters up by 3. Her performance is also up by 5 points to 47% to 47%, again, her best approval since to 47%, again, her best approval since early last year. In contrast, Tony Abbott's disapproval is up by 1 point, a new record high for him. Whether it Whether it was the misogyny speech or not thcontest between the two leaders has been transformed but Labor's two-party preferred poll has risen but the coalition still maintains an election-winning lead. Mia, we heard a little more from Mr Rudd this week of course, will this boost be enough to silence speculation about a come back? Andrew t might just be. Especially as voters continue to warm to Julia Gillard. This May erode the chances of another leadership spill. We are also less than a year out from the next election, so Labor may want to just hold its course. The only spanner in the works is the imminent release of Maxine McKew's new book, she was a supporter of Kevin Rudd and this book details her version of the events to oust Kevin Rudd last year.So she will be busy buying up every copy of the book store in Australia. Moving from polls to policy. Apparently some of the parties have some. Treasurer Wayne Swan is going to announce spending cuts later?This morning is the much-anticipated release of the mid-year economic review. The federal treasurer is expected to announce spending cuts of between $ announce spending cuts of between $4 billion to $ billion to $5 billion for the budget to achieve the much-promised $ to achieve the much-promised $1. billion to $5 billion for the budget
to achieve the much-promised $1.5 billion surplus. Treasury had to readjust its figures due to the downturn in China.Thank you, we look forward to seeing what they might be. Catch you later.Thank you.

Three of the Australian tourists
injured in an Arizona bus crash remain in hospital this morning. The large tour group
was heading back to Las Vegas from the Grand Canyon when the bus crashed into a ravine, travelling 200 metres
before coming to a stop. Somehow the vehicle stayed upright,
preventing more serious injuries. Investigations are underway but it's believed the bus driver
suffered a heart attack. He died at the scene. Most of the passengers on the bus
were part of a tour group from the Rodriguan Social Club
of Victoria. James Appadoo is the president
of the club and he joins me now. Good morning. What's the latest you've heard about the injuries sustained
by the members of your club?

How is everyone doing? Three still in hospital?Yes, good morning, Mel. The Rodriguan Social Club of Victoria are very saddened buy news what happened in the US. The news is, I spoke to one of the people on tour there, she is still in the hospital. All thu, only three at the moment in the hospital. So the others have been released after checking out. And it looks like those three that are still in hospital are not life-threatening. So on this note, it is a good thing for us we don't have any serious injuries.Absolutely. Have you spoken to anyone else? Have you spoken to kneof those who have been re- -- have you spoken to any of those hoohave been released?Yes, last night we spoke to one. They were happy to be released from the hospital. Of course, we have three people left behind in the hospital. One of the tour organisers, the secretary of the club, she is taking a very, taking the case very seriously and making sure all the members over there are happy when they come out of the hospital. He will be operate is-- she will be operated this afternoon, Australian time and she has a problem with her wrist.Remarkable they are OK. Have you heard how the accident happened? We are hearing it appears the driver had a heart attack?Yes, that's what I have been told as well. It was all of sudden it happened. They all saw the driver bending on the steering wheel and realised the bus had lost control. They got a little bit off road. Luckily, the bus just stopped about 200 metres. And the bus always remained upright so a very good thing that happened as well.What is happening now? Are people heading home? Continuing their tour? Do you know the future?Yes, like I said before, the conversation I said yesterday afternoon as there are only three people left in the hospital, the other 29 people will proceed with the tour. Because they are going on a Hawaiian cruise and hopefully the change of scenery will help them get over the horrible accident on Friday. For the three people that are left behind, they will not proceed with the tour. They will be going, having surgery and hopefully get better and they can come home safely in the next couple of days or weeks.Certainly, here is hoping those three in hospital recover quickly and everyone else enjoys the Hawaiian cruise. Here is Nat.

dedicated to exposing
undercover cops, saying it's putting lives at risk. The page reveals the number plates
of unmarked police cars through photos and comments. Police say the information could
jeopardise cases and cost lives. The site already has
more than 1,200 followers. Victoria Police is monitoring
the page but hasn't yet asked Facebook
to take it down. Joining me now
is Senior Sergeant Greg Davies from the Victoria Police
Association. Good morning. Greg, how is this Facebook page putting officers and operations
in danger?

Good morning, Nat. Well, look, this Facebook page purports to have unmarked police cars on it. Of course, some may not be. But those that are could contain unsworn members of the police members of the police forbs in speed camera cars. Facebook say that is OK, people can take photos in public places but the road toll is not a game. We lose hundreds of lives every year in Victoria. And to alert people to these sorts of things is incredibly irresponsible and at the top end of the scale, of course, we can have investigations of serious criminal matters jeopardized and perhaps the safety of police officers as well.We have done stories before where there is stuff on Facebook that is just bad taste, people have died and people put awful pictures up, but once lives are put at risk, smd -- should there be a bigger push to have the page remove? be a bigger push to have the page remove?EdIn our view, yes. We have seen teenagers bullied to death over Facebook. It is all well and good to have non-senseical photo of a chicken wearing a hat, how funny but if people can't control themselves Facebook need to. If not, at some stage, hopefully there there will be politicians brave enough to put restrictions.Social media is more prevalent, are we seeing an increase in this activity.We are, as people embrace the technology it becomes more wider used and people have a greater exposure, for something that would have been a conversation between two people, now they can advice the entire world of their critically important views on things. And it needs to be done appropriately.Thank you pr your -- for your

Move over Kate and Wills, another royal wedding
is making headlines this morning. Luxembourg's heir to the throne
and his bride have tied the knot in front of huge list of royals
from around the word. (REGAL MUSIC PLAYS)

It was a fairytale wedding and the biggest royal event
in the tiny country of Luxembourg in decades. 30-year-old Crown Prince Guillaume married 28-year-old Belgian countess
Stephanie de Lannoy. Kings, queens, princes and
princesses from around the globe attended the service - including Britain's Prince Edward
and his wife, Sophie and Denmark's Princess Mary
and Prince Frederick. Outside the church, thousands lined the streets for
the most-anticipated moment of all. (CHEERING)

The 2-day celebration ended
with a giant fireworks display.

Rob, I love a royal wedding. Good morning, Rob. Tell us more about this couple. I must say they this couple. I must say they weren't on my radar for royals but I'm learning.They are not on the radar like Will and Kate but a hugely popular couple. There were a lot of people there, including Princess Mary and Princess Grace's daughter and Edward and Sophie. But in terms of the radar of royal, celebrity, not that important. He is the last hereditary royal prince to get married in Europe.Not important, unless you in Luxembourg. Not that you want to compare weddings but size? Glitz? Give us an idea? I guess using William and Kate as the last one we remember?Well, it cost about half a million euros, which is a lot of money, which came from the Luxembourg's taxpayers accounts but I don't think it compared on the scale of global interest of William and Kate because simply the British royal family are a much bigger scale.We are just loving the kissing, the balcony kiss looked rehearsed and when they kissed in rehearsed and when they kissed the in the church, it looked like everybody else had a kiss?I don't think they do it all the time in the church, it looked like a copy cat of William and Kate and Charles and Diana. I but I am sure they are very happy and it will last forever.I sure it will. Can I talk to you, while I have you here, Pippa Middleton has released a book and spoken of her rise to fame as a royal system and a nice bottom?She didn't say an awful lot but she got around $ around $600,000 Australian for saying that very little. She talked about how it is strange, not before you are 30, being famous for being the sister of Kate, the sister of William and infamous bottom. She also talked about cheating, cheating at conquers.Wild childhood.Conquer cheat, one thing you don't do at a British public school is cheat at conquers!Good to talk to you, as always.I used to put mine in vinegar, so I used to cheat too. I am the only one who doesn't know what it is? And have never heard of it?It is a bit like marbles.You had marbles in WA?I wasn't that old.Knuckles.Yes. Knuckles.How beautiful did marry look at the wedding.Great. She looks like a musk tier with her -- musketeer with her husband.She's elegant. Love her.Wait until the international conquers federation investigates her background.

he directed and starred, now Ben Affleck opens up about
his new movie masterpiece. But right now, it's time
for the news headlines with Nat. The Prime Minister's
popularity rating has jumped
in the latest opinion poll after her now-famous
misogyny speech. In today's Nielsen poll, the Prime Minister's approval
rating jumped five points to reach an 18-month high. Tony Abbott's approval
was also up one point but his disapproval rate climbed
to its highest level ever. Despite Mr Abbott being unpopular, the Coalition would still win
an election if one was held today. The Coalition holding
on to a 4-point lead in the two-party preferred. But the attention will shift
to the Treasurer this morning when Wayne Swan hands down
his mid-year Budget review. He's expected to announce billions
in cuts and new charges to try to achieve
his promised Budget surplus. Three of the Australian tourists
injured in an Arizona bus crash remain in hospital this morning.

With minor injuries.

They were heading back
to Las Vegas from the Grand Canyon when their bus ran off a highway
after the driver had a heart attack. As there are only three people
left in the hospital, the other 29 people will proceed
with their tour - because they are now going
on a Hawaiian cruise. Hopefully, the change of scenery
will help them to get over the horrible experience
they had earlier. The bus driver died at the scene. Firefighters in Queensland
are facing another long day as they battle dozens
of bushfires across the state. Lightning strikes started
several new blazes last night, pushing overstretched crews
to the limit. Some fires have been burning
for days. No homes have been lost, but thick
smoke is choking the south-east. Temperatures will reach
the mid thirties again today before a cool change hopefully
brings some relief tonight. Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong has made his second public
appearance in as many days. He welcomed more than 4,000 cyclists taking part in a fundraiser bike
ride for his LIVESTRONG charity in Texas. But the 7-time Tour de France winner
didn't have much to say about his doping scandal, repeating the exact lines
from his previous speech. Obviously, it's been an interesting, and as I said the other night,
at times very difficult few weeks. People ask me a lot,
"How you doing?" And I tell them, I say, "Well, I've been better
but I've also been worse." Cycling's governing body
will announce tonight and loss of his titles. Huge crowds have gathered to watch China's national kite
flying championships. The 2-day event allows the world's
best to showcase their skills with 36 teams on display. Between them,
they had more than 400 kites. The biggest measured more
than 220 square metres, and the longest was more than
two football fields long.

Yes, world championships, thanks, Nat.

The Perth Scorchers
have been eliminated from the Twenty20 Champions League after losing to the Delhi Daredevils
in Cape Town. In an ominous sign
for the upcoming Test series, Proteas paceman Morne Morkel
starred for the Daredevils. The Scorchers could only manage
5/121 from their 20 overs. But their bowling attack fought hard
to defend the modest total, It's probably the end
of our tournament but we've still got a lot of pride
to play for and to get our first win up. Perth's final match
is against Auckland. Perth Glory has moved into equal
top spot on the A-League ladder with a 2-nil win over
Melbourne Heart at NIB Stadium. Goals from Dean Heffernan
and Billy Mehmet ensured a comfortable victory
for the home side. In Wellington, the Phoenix
struck early against Brisbane Roar but the reigning champions bounced
back to salvage a 1-1 draw. Jamie Whincup will take

In another day of drama, Michael
Caruso departed from the pits without one crucial piece
of equipment - a rear wheel. This is what was left
of Ricky Taylor's car following his spectacular crash
on Saturday. Here's what the crash looked like
from Taylor's point of view.

That is some ride and over on to the roof, there we go.That will be $ roof, there we go.That will be $2. roof, there we go.That will be $2.50.Here is where the real damage is done, flip tg over.Amazing to walk away unscratched?The good thing about V8 supercars thdrivers are so well protected in the cage, which is good. I wonder what Airlie Beach is looking like this morning? Let's find out. Let me answer that Let's find out. Let me answer one for you, young man. It's spectacular! Isn't it always look at that up there. Bright blue, gorgeous, the water is warm, the temperatures are fantastic. The tans are brown, the hair is blond. And Jenny has got a beautiful song that sums it up. # Be a part of whales # Walk a trail # Have a nice cold ale # Give us, we love your show # Give us a go # Come on down # Come on down.I'm coming on down # We love Sunrise, give us a prize. Jenny makes these, the world's largest sausage roles. Look at the size of those bad boys. Pefpy. Seeing him eating food like that in the morning, that's unusual.Unusual to see the crew so active. You make those?Yes, as made famous by James when he was here two years ago. All made in my house, aren't they the best sausage roles in the world! You're all getting a sausage role free.Yeah, I love this place! Then we can all go running in the running club to run it off. I suppose it's good this way, if you are on island, you good this way, if you are on island, you can't get lost, you keep going around and around until you get back. Let's look at the forecast.

Sunrise weather to you by Claratyne. A trough is triggering storms across the country's north,
interior and east. Potentially severe storms
in South-East Queensland while fresh southerlies are
directing showers and highland snow into Victoria and Tasmania. A possible storm
in Brisbane.

So if you eat Jenny's world-record-breaking size sausage roles and go for a run and then a swim, you are in good paws. They are our surf rescue team up this way. How cute! Everything is wonderful. Sun coming up.How can it not be beautiful? A ukulele.You're right.
