Let's make it a date - reports suggest Kevin Rudd will set September 7 for the federal election. ASADA hands over its report on the Essendon doping saga - will suspensions follow? Ashes fight- back - a batting barrage from the captain, and two late English wickets, put Australia in control of the third test. Golden girl - Cate Campbell sprints to victory at the World Championships. And the Aussie teen flying solo around the world - an update on Ryan Campbell, as he reaches the halfway point.

It is Saturday, August 3, 2013. Great to have your company this morning. Hello, Cam.Hello to you too, Sarez. What a great day it is to celebrate Australian achievements. Cate Campbell smashed it at the world swimming championships. Michael Clarke - 187. The Aussies on top, finally!Feels good to win.In the Ashes, yeah. What about your footy teams? Good last night - North Melbourne were very good, and the Roosters - they are gonna win that NRL premiership. They were awesome.Big call!Boo? Watch out for the Green Machine! They're coming! Late charge.Got to be a glass-half-full kind of girl to follow the Raiders.Exactly right!

Let's get some news now. We have Libby Stone on the couch this morning. Good morning, guys. There's growing speculation that the federal election could be held on September 7. The Prime Minister is expected to pay a visit to the Governor- General either tomorrow or Monday to seek approval. Fairfax reports Kevin Rudd has settled on the date and is ready to kick off what's being tipped as one of the most intense political contests in memory. The imminent official start to campaigning comes as Treasurer Chris Bowen defends Friday's mini budget - it predicts weaker economic growth, rising unemployment, and more Government debt.We are laying out a plan to surplus. We've shown we're prepared to take difficult decisions to get there.If this is what the Labor Party presents on the eve of an election, imagine how bad it is going to be if they're re-elected. The Government is still promising to get the budget back in the black within three years. A 23-year-old pregnant woman has died after being stabbed in Sydney's east. Police were called to a unit in Maroubra around 1:00 this morning, following a report a young female was unconscious and bleeding. Officers have set up a crime scene and are treating the death as suspicious. A post-mortem will be conducted to determine exactly what happened to the woman. The AFL's confirmed it's received ASADA's interim report into Essendon's controversial supplements program. The 400 pages of evidence makes reference to more than 13,000 documents, as well as interviews from more than 130 witnesses. The report will be given to the Bombers' board today, and will be digested by the AFL's legal counsel before going to the AFL Commission.The AFL will continue to review the evidence collected to determine what action, if any, might be taken pursue tonight the AFL's rules and/or the anti-doping code.Essendon released a brief statement late last night, stating the club looks forward to receiving the report and responding in due course. It's been a shocking night on Victorian roads, with three people killed in separate accidents. One man was killed near Winchelsea, south of Melbourne, after colliding with two other cars just before 1:00 this morning. Earlier in the night, a 36-year-old man died after falling out of a car near Melbourne's CBD, and hitting his head. A motorcyclist was killed after colliding with a car in Pearcedale just after 8:00. The driver of the car and her passengers suffered only minor injuries. Just weeks after an ugly riot at the Nauru detention centre, plans are under way for a third facility to be built on the island nation. Fairfax says the Nauru government is locked in talks with local land- owners for the new camp's location. It's unclear how many asylum seekers will be housed there, but an announcement is expected within days. Nauru's President flew to Australia on Friday for talks with the Rudd Government. Police investigating the murder of a woman in Melbourne's south-east are hopeful of locating CCTV footage from the area to help identify her killer. Kylie Blackwood was found dead inside her Pakenham home by her 11-year-old twin girls on Thursday. The mother- of-three has been described as a beautiful person. Detectives are puzzled as to why anyone would want her dead.That aspect of burglary - we need to examine to identify if it leads to any lines of inquiry. Police say the killer probably entered the home via the garage. Friends of drowned Gold Coast surf- lifesaving Jerry Dennis will pay tribute to their mate today at his favourite event. The 17-year-old died after coming off his board while training at Mermaid Waters on Thursday. Jerry was due to compete in the state pool rescue championships in Burpengary this weekend. His clubmates say they'll go ahead with the competition in his honour. He was always a happy kid. He always raced really hard. He trained really hard. He was aspiring to become a very good ironman.A minute's silence will be held before the start of today's event. The United States is shutting down embassies across the globe over a major but unspecified security threat. Embassies and consulates in mostly Muslim countries will shut their doors this weekend in the first mass closure of its kind since the first September 11 anniversary. It's understood the threat originated from Yemen and other embassys are being closed as a precaution. Americans are also being told to be on high alert, with warnings of a plan by al-Qaeda to unleash terror attacks in the Middle East or North Africa. And finally, Prince George has had his birth formally registered close to two weeks after he entered the world. His father, Prince William, signed the birth certificate at Kensington Palace on Friday, and on the document the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave their occupations as Prince and Princess of the United Kingdom. Can you call that a job?(LAUGHTER) Imagine filling out the cards? Thank you very much.Thank you, Libby.Can I just say, I am a bit rattled this morning. Libby, you've picked an unusual day to make your debut as a newsreader on the 'Today' show. This is the Today show one-pager. I haven't talked to it the EP about this. It's the show on one page. Can anyone spot the obvious problem here?(LAUGHTER) That's how good our show is today! It's jam-packed!Couldn't fit it on one page.So much good stuff coming up. Don't go anywhere. We will have your weather and first sports news next.Exactly. And we've got a draw in the NRL - golden point, too. A big upset in the AFL. And we're in control of the third test - Roz Kelly will join us live from Manchester, next on Weekend Today with good news.

What a cracking start to the morning! This is what you're waking up to Sydney. A mostly sunny Saturday for you, heading to a top of 18 degrees. Right now, it is 11. Beautiful start to the day. Time for sports headlines. Erin Molan, lots happening overnight. Plenty of good news too.A nice change, definitely. Starting with cricket - Australia has bat ed themselves back into the Ashes Series, following a solid second day at the crease at Old Trafford.

Live now to Roz Kelly in Manchester. The skipper leading from the front, just as

just as he should be?Erin, Clarke really continued to grind England's bowlers down today. In doing so, he added to his shining record as Australian captain. His 187 taking him past Mark Taylor into seventh on Australia's list of all-time test run scorers. It was his 214- run partnership with Stephen Smith which really helped set the foundations for Australia.

which really helped set the
foundations for Australia. Unfortunately, Smith fell 11 runs short - heartbreakingly - of his maiden test century. And then that brought David Warner to the crease. His first test since serving suspension for punching England batsman Joe Root. The English crowd just gave it to him. He only faced 10 deliveries before being caught behind. He actually didn't think he hit the ball at all, although it clearly showed he edged it. It was an emotional review, and he was out, and the crowd gave him a very loud farewell also. Siddle and Haddin - Starc and Haddin, rather - continued running England ragged, before Michael Clarke declared at 7/527 just after tea. The bowlers really did keep the pressure on England. Nathan Lyon bowled quite well but was wicketless in the couple of hours they were bowling. Peter Siddle ripped in, taking two quick wickets. England will resume 2/52. They are 475 runs behind Australia. Australia really need to keep the pressure on during day three. They have to win this test to keep the series alive - even a draw means England will retain the Ashes, Erin.

draw means England will retain the
Ashes, Erin.Thanks, Roz. Finally some good news. Back home - North Melbourne has stunned Geelong, upseting the second-placed Cats by 10 points at

second-placed Cats by 10 points at
Etihad Stadium. In a battle of the Scott brothers, the Roos kept their slim finals hopes alive. North kicking six of the last eight goals before half-time for a 20-point lead at the main break. Veteran Brent Harvey unstoppable.

Harvey's up to 19. Harvey a's up to 20, and a running bounce! How old is he, Dennis?!35, Bruce!He sizes it up... That was Geelong-like! One end to the other! Harvey finished with an impressive 37 disposals. Daniel Wells with 18, kicking a game-high four goals. The Roosters have further cemented their premiership credentials, with a crushing 42-6 win over an under- strength Panthers side at Centrebet Stadium. Five-eighth James Maloney finish would a personal haul of 18 points, setting up five of the Bondi boys' seven tries, including scoring one himself. The it's the Roosters' biggest win over the Panthers, temporarily stealing the top spot on the ladder from South Sydney.

Cordner's away! They'll pile on a record here...In Newcastle, the Knights and Broncos couldn't be separated - neither side able to find the matchen wither in golden point, settling in an -- matchwinner in golden point, settling for an 18-18 draw. Cate Campbell has secured Australia's third gold medal of the World Swimming Championships in Barcelona. The 21-year-old came out with a point to prove after missing the event at London last year due to illness. She sprung off the blocks, hitting the wall almost a body length in front and under world-record time. Campbell clinched her maiden world title in a time of 52.34 seconds.It's up to Missy to get up on that medal stand!Cate Campbell will lead this race start to finish! Missy fighting in lane two! It will be very, very close as they come to the wall!

In the other final featuring an Aussie, Sally Foster finished seventh in the 200m breaststroke. Belinda Hocking placed second in her semi to qualify fourth-fastest for tomorrow's 200m backstroke final.

for tomorrow's 200m backstroke
final. How good is it, Cam and Sarah? The sprint king and the sprint queen in the 100m in the pool!Brilliant. We're pretty fast as a nation.We are pretty fast. We kill it quickly. Let's not get too cocky, alright? Given last week...I think it's a drought. We should celebrate unless it changes too quickly.Small wins! Thank you, Erin. Emma Freedman - we're not in Kansas anymore, Emma? We are not, Cam and Sarah. We are celebrating 'The Wizard of Oz' all in glory this morning. One of my favourite films has been around for 74 years. Campbelltown has a great 'Wizard of Oz' festival for the next week or so. And yes, I have been called into the outfit... (LAUGHTER) Yes, I have transformed into Dorothy this morning. Sarah, you would be familiar with this - a little later last year, I dressed up in a Spider-Man suit for Christmas. I am again returning to the kid-size costumes.You have out-cuted yourself! You are so adorable, Emma.I am absolutely loving this outfit. We'll tell you more about the festival and where we are this morning at Funlands in Campbelltown, after your weather. We are have 'Wizard of Oz' muse took guide us along this Saturday.

We've got all of our favourite 'Wizard of Oz' characters - the Wicked Witch of the West, who's looking very menacesing. The Tin Man, of course, as well. The Scare- crow. Another Dorothy to guide my way along the Yellow Brick Road. And the lion, who is looking very festive this morning. This festival is happening at Campbelltown over the course of the next week. We'll explore everything that we love about Steve Wozniak this morning, Sarah and Cam. Thank you very much, Emma. Emma dressed by OshKosh B'Gosh. (LAUGHTER) We've got the fastest man in the pool - we've got the fastest woman as well. We'll go live to Barcelona for all the details on Cate Campbell's big win, next on Weekend Today.

Welcome back to the show. Great news this morning - Cate Campbell has won the women's 100m freestyle at the Barcelona World Championships. Joining us with the latest update is Nine reporter Amelia Ballinger. Amelia, wow - what a race! Cate Campbell absolutely dominated!Didn't she just, Sarah! The golds are coming thick and fast now. The delightful Cate Campbell taking out that race, the women's 100m freestyle. She was the favourite to win going in. She has swum the six fasts times this year in that race, and went out very, very quickly from the outset. She had a world-record split as she hit the wall at the first 50m, an entire body length ahead when she took off from the wall. From that point, she just had to hold on as the rest of the pack chased her down. They were trying their very best too. Some of the other swimmers made enormous inroads towards the end of that race. She really just held on. It was just an amazing thing to see her touch that wall in first place and to turn around and see her number one next to her name there. You can probably see, as she touches the wall, she looks a little bit bewildered. She told me afterwards her goggles were a bit foggy - she couldn't quite see if it was number 1 or number 7. Enormous relief for her. She says it was incredible to have strived her entire life for something, and to achieve it in less than a minute. A wonderful result for her, especially given a hard year she had. She was the favourite in the Olympics last year, had a case of gastro, and probably didn't perform as well as she could have. This is a big relief for her, and an excellent result for a lovely girl. Great to see those gold caps out in front again. Amelia, we now have the fastest swimmers in the world, but Magnusen is not going to make it a Dugan. What's happened to him? Pretty disappointing for James Magnussen. We saw how relieved he was last night to win the 100m freestyle and how thrilled he was getting the gold medal. He swam in the first heat of the 50m freestyle. He was expected to make it through to the final, but didn't get there in the end in the semifinal, missing out, coming in ninth, missing out by one spot to get in the final. It is disappointing for him, but a lot of the swim team thinks that 100m really took it out of him last night. That was his focus. He achieved the result he wanted. It's still a good thing for James Magnussen.Really quickly, Amelia - our women's water polo team is competing for gold as we speak. How are they doing?As we speak, the score at the moment is 5-7. The Aussies are 5. The Spanish team, the home team, are 7 at the moment. They're in the last quarter. Hopefully our girls can try really hard. This is a shot at the first gold medal of the World Championships in 27 years. Fingers crossed for them over the next couple of minutes, Sarah.Brilliant. Amelia Ballinger, thank you very much for the update. Great news there. Over to you, Cam. Go, the Stingers. We'll have more on the swimming. Coming up - we'll talk to Grant Hackett in our next hour. And Aussie surfers are kicking off a new coffle titian to find and then sur-biggest waves in the world. We're talking to Mark Mathews, one of the hell riders, coming up on Weekend Today.

September 7 is shaping up as the likely date for the federal election. Fairfax is reporting Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has finally made up his mind and is expected to pay a visit to the Governor-General either tomorrow or Monday to seek approval. It comes as the Opposition attacks the Government's mini budget, which predicts weaker economic growth, a rise in unemployment, and more debt. It is patently obvious - Labor has lost control of the budget and it is losing control of the economy. Meantime, the Federal Government is expected to announce a new support package for the car industry today. A pregnant woman has died after being stabbed in Sydney's east. Let's go live to reporter Kelly Fedor, who's at the scene. What more do we know at this stage? Libby, a horrific murder here in Sydney's eastern suburbs. Neighbours heard screaming just after 1:00 this morning, possibly at a party. Paramedics a short time later found a 23-year-old woman with a single stab wound to the chest in the unit block behind me. There was nothing they could do to save her and, as you monsion mentioned, it's now been confirmed she was, in fact, pregnant. Police did escort a woman into a police car at the scene, but she was a witness. They've stressed she was not under arrest. They also brought in the dog squad to search for a man, but that search was unsuccessful and continues. They've confirmed that man is known to the victim. Forensic officers have also spent the morning here gathering clues as that search continues. The investigation now involving the homicide squad. Libby. Thanks, Kelly. Kelly Fedor there in Sydney. ASADA's interim report into Essendon's supplements program will be given to the club's board today. The AFL last night confirmed it had received the 400-page report, which makes reference to 13,000 documents as well as interviews from more than 130 witnesses.I note that ASADA recently received additional investigative powers so the investigation will be ongoing. Fairfax says it understands there were no players issued with punishments or infraction notices. The national leader of the Comancheros has been charged, as police continue their crackdown on bikie gangs. Mark Buddle was taken into custody in Sydney's east after allegedly breaching his bail. He'd served five months in jail earlier this year for his involvement in a bar brawl. The arrest comes just days after three Sydney bikie clubhouses were raided and shut down. The rising cost of living is taking its toll on Australian families, with 1 in 3 adults wering on Saturdays and Sundays. New research shows weekend work has nearly trebled over the past 20 years, from 12% to 33% today. It found when women work on weekends, their husbands tend to spend time with their friends, but when men work, women are less likely to socialise, instead catching up on chores. Family groups have been critical of the situation, saying it's bad for bonding and relationships. That's not good news for us! (LAUGHTER) Not good news for us.Time for sport now. Thanks, Libby. Australia is firmly on the front foot at stumps on day two of the third Ashes test at Old

Ashes test at Old Trafford. For the first time since 2001, the Aussies brought up 500 runs in England. Skipper Michael Clarke laid the platform with a timely knock of 187. Brad Haddin and Mitchell Starc staged a late 97-run stand, but the day did belong to Clarke.If we win the test, I'll be extremely proud. If we don't win the test, it's useless. Don't get me wrong - it's always nice to make a hundred, no doubt about it, but we have three big days ahead. We'll see how we go. Peter Siddle snared back-to-back wickets to have England at 2/52, still trailing Australia by 475 runs. Back home, both the Broncos and Knights remain in the finals hunt after drawing 18-18 at Hunter Stadium. Newcastle winger Akuila Uate crossed late in the match to force golden point, but neither side could land the killer blow. Knights coach Wayne Bennett still not a fan of extra time.At the end of the night, we both walked away with one point each and all the fans have to go home with one point each, and we all get on with life. For the life of me, I can't see why the game didn't stop at 80 minutes. I hope in the future, we get to that point.In Penrith, the Roosters ran riot, scoring seven tries for a 42-6 flogging. It only got worse for the Panthers - Sika Manu and Adam Docker added to Penrith's mounting injury toll. Both sidelined with broken hands. AFL - Geelong could drop to as low as fourth on the ladder by the end of the round, after a shock 10- point loss to North Melbourne last night. The 10th-placed Kangaroos kept their finals hopes alive, out- scoring the Cats three goals to two in a thrilling final term at Etihad Stadium. Daniel Wells finished with four majors - 35-year-old veteran Brent Harvey led with a game-high 37 disposals. For a third straight week, the Brumbies have named an unchanged line-up ahead of tonight's Super Rugby final against defending champions the Chiefs in Hamilton.

Rugby final against defending
champions the Chiefs in Hamilton. It's the Canberra-based side's sixth appearance in a decider. Victory tonight would see the Brumbies become the second-most- successful club in franchise history, with three championships and three runners-up titles. And a mixed night for our Aussie men in the lead-up to this month's US Open at Flushing Meadows. Marinko Matosevic progressed to the quarterfinals of the Citi Open in Washington DC with a straight-sets win over fourth seed Milos Raonic. Juan Martin del Potro cruised past Queenslander Bernard Tomic 6-3, 6-3 in their third-round encounter. No "Juan" could beat him.(LAUGHS) (LAUGHTER) Pretty good. I only just got it. Doesn't matter what I was going to say then. I can't beat that.Don't try!This is getting awkward.Let's get some weekend weather now.

Emma just clicked her heels and disappeared, so let's do the major centres between us.

Coming up - we'll meet one father who's making a moral stand in his community, with messages like this: Father Rob Bower in our next half- hour. And can Simon Pegg and Nick Frost save humanity? Who? Richard reviews 'The World's End' next on Weekend Today.

Have you ever wanted to relive the greatest day of your life? Me too. British funny men Simon Pegg and Nick Frost do just that in 'The World's End', as they re-create an epic pub crawl from their youth. It's got the elements to be a great comedy, but does it deliver? Richard has his review in the Movie of the Week. Ever had one of those nights that starts out like any other but ends up being the best night of your life? So here's the plot - a bunch of estranged friends are unwittingly conned into revisiting the scene of one of their most lidgeenedry escapades - an epic pub crawl known as The Golden Mile.We're gonna go back to Newton Haven.Why?5 guys, 50 pint!Gary King, the sort of friend no bloke needs, and no woman deserves. But he does have a roguish charm that usually ends up with trouble.What do you recommend?Beer.Mmm!One tap-water, please.What?!This is hilarious and completely insane. The plot taking a bizarre twist when the lads discover that their old home town has been taken over by aliens. It's the town!

Yikes! Once again, Pegg is joined by Nick Frost, Martin Freeman also in there as one of the hapless participants.We had this idea about going back to your home town and experiencing this very odd sensation of simultaneous familiarity and alienation. It looks exactly the same as it always did, but feels different. The reason is because you have changed. We thought it would be funfy the place really had changed, because had been invaded by alien robots. Newton Haven has been taken over by mutant robots.If you have the required broad mind to deal with all sorts of colourful language and nefarious activities, then it could just be the blast you've been looking for. It's called 'The World's End'. Cheers, lads. Five friends on a night out... Having a good time...

What the hell is that?!

We are going to get to the World's End if it kills us.

It's supposed to be brilliant. Dickie loved it.Yep. You haven't seen a movie for a while. Maybe you should treat yourself.I just go back to 2009 when my first daughter was born. That's when I lost saw a movie.Awww. The man wearing the same pair of jeans for 300 days without washing them - he'll be in studio after 9:00 this morning. I'm sure we'll smell him before we see him. And the search to find and then surf - the biggest wave in the world - we're speaking to Mark Mathews next on Weekend Today.

This program is not captioned. Good morning, Melbourne. Looks pretty gorgeous at the moment, but late today you can expect a little bit of rain. It is currently seven degrees, but it is heading for a top of 15, Cam. Cracking start to the day there. The original -- The Original Source Intense Surf Challenge has just been launched. It's rather different, and it's going to pit 15 of our best surfers against each other to see who can capture the biggest and best ride, and you've got to get it on video. We're joined now by big-wave surfer Mark Mathews, who is charged with the responsibility of picking these guys. Mark, what are you looking for in a surfer?Mate, we've got to have a surfer who's got the courage to put it on the line in the biggest waves around the world. It's not a hard pick in Australia - it seems like the sporting mongrel in all Australians breeds some of the craziest surfers from all around the world.Yeah, there's no question about that. You'd have to put yourself in that category. Are you going to be surfing this time? No, unfortunately I've been picked as an ambassador for this year. Fingers crossed I'll be in there next year.They've tamed you! Ambassador?! Not exactly the wildest

Ambassador?! Not exactly the
wildest word in the world.

Ambassador?! Not exactly the
wildest word in the world. Where's this wave likely to come from? What conditions create these big, hard- to-ride waves?It's the biggest storms from all around the world. The surfers will be tracking the swells that these storms create, and chasing them to coastlines from Tahiti to the bottom of Tasmania to America to Europe - everywhere. What's the prize?The prize is $30,000. It's going to be like dropping blood into a piranha tank in front of these guys. They'll be going hell for lether to wide Ryde the biggest waves on the planet. I assure you there will be some crazy wipe-outs along the way.There's some really recognisable waves we've seen here in the past, from Western Australia, Shipsterns Bluff in Tasmania gets a run... Where do you reckon, geographically, this wave will come from to win it?I'd say the most spectacular waves are definitely going to be either from Shipsterns Bluff in Tasmania, but also I've seen a lot of content coming in from some past huge swells in Teahupoo in Tahiti. I think it will be a toss-up between those two that will get the public's vote.What's it like to make a mistake on a wave like this, to actually be churned around by one?It is horrific. It's lite getting through in an oversized washing machine and thrown in with the reef. The speed and power of the wave can be like hitting concrete, then getting rolled around a washing machine. It's a horrifying feeling but, on the other side of that, to make it out the end of one oaf these big waves is the best feeling in the world. Look, I've seen guys training, trying to prepare for that event by running along the ocean floor, holding a bolder to keep them down and obviously practising their breath hold, but it must kind of take you by surprise when it happens?Yeah, it really does. You can do all the training in the world but, on the day, when you're faced with the fear of wiping out on these waves, the training goes out the window and it really is just survival mode.What gets you back on the board?!It's that feeling, mate - it's that amazing feeling of when you actually do make one of these waves. That gets you back on the board and keeps you chasing for the rest of your life. Big chase is on now for the Original Source Intense Surf Challenge. It's going to be intense, like the name says. When does it start and finish?The clips are starting to drop now on The voting is ope to the public - the public will decide the winner of this event. There are big prizes to be won for the...There's just been a wipe-out behind you, Mark!I'm prone to wipe-outs, so nothing else could happen!(LAUGHTER) We'll put a link to your link up on our home page. We'll be able to find you, mate. You get back on the board. Thanks for speaking to us this morning.No worries. Thanks a lot, Cam.Good on you, mate. Take care. Mark Mathews there. Great pictures. Thanks, Cam. It sounds like Kevin Rudd is ready to set an election date, finally. We're going to go live to Canberra at the top of the hour. But first, let's head to Hollywood, where Michele Mahone is standing by. What's goss, Michele?Well, Ms Sarah, Jennifer Aniston sets the record straight and has feudin' words for Katie Couric.

This program is not captioned.

Happens at a wedding that costs $7 million? We're going to have that story coming up in two minutes time. You'd hope a lot! First, Hollywood gossip with Michele Mahone. Jennifer Aniston has lashed out at journalist Katie Couric. Why is that?Well, she went on her friend Chelsea Handler's chat show, and Chelsea said, "Have you heard that you're a nudist?" Apparently Katie Couric gave an interview for a magazine and, in the article, she said that Justin Theroux, Jennifer's fiance, is a nudist. While Jennifer was hesitant at first, she has embraced her curves and, and both she and Justin prance around their house completely in the buff, even cooking naked. Now, I don't recommend frying up chicken naked, but whatever floats your boat. Well, Jennifer said, "What are you reading? 'Star' magazine? Is she a legitimate journalist? Has she gone tab Lloydy?" I don't know, I think I'm gonna have to pose as an Avon salesman and get to the bottom of this.In Katie's defence, if I had Jennifer Aniston's body, I'd probably walk around naked all the time as well.And that bloke's got goodabs too.Very good. Exciting Oscar news - the host has been named?It would be Ellen DeGeneres! I am so excited. Love her. She tweeted out, "It's official." She's hosting. She'd like to thank the Academy and her wife and, oops, there goes the orchestra. I can't wait.She'll be good. She'll be edgy but not over the top.She's very likeable.Thank you, Michele. See you shortly. Internet mogul Shaun Parker just put on one huge party. Check it out. It's the ultimate storybook wedding. This morning, we're giving an enchanted look inside internet ticonShaun Parker's multimillion- dollar nuptials to singer- songwriter Alexandra Lienus. The exchanging of the rings inspired, in part, by 'Lord of the Rings'. Photos from the lavish affair now on stunning display in 'Vanity Fair' magazine, but the wedding actually took place in June in California's Big Sur forest. The already naturally beautiful venue enhanced and transformed to look even more like Middle Earth, from the towering redwoods to the over- the-top medieval dessert stations. Even the invitations were elaborate - 'Vanity Fair' writer David Kirkpatrick was a guest at the wedding and gave us an exclusive look. Here at the very end of the book, it says, "And they lived happily ever after." The with beginning is titled, 'Our Tale'. The guest list include Sting and Olivia Munn. All 361 of them given their own Shire-inspired costumes. I heard as many as 1,000 people worked on the wedding in some fashion. They had a faux run-down casling, a pen of bunnies for anyone who wanted to cuddle. They had beds as a rest area with bear skins on them.Parker, one of the createbers hind Napster and Facebook, was famously portrayed by Justin Timberlake in the film 'The Social Network' as quite the smart- alec.What do you do?I'm an entrepreneur.But on his wedding day, the 33-year-old was every bit the Prince Charming, even serenading his young bride - one of many tokens, or should we say Tolkiens, of his affection.Did you see what she did there?Yep. I've been to a wedding before looking like Frodo. Bridesmaid.They are a bit naff, themed weddings, aren't they?They are naff! Here are the top stories on Weekend

Here are the top stories on Weekend
Today. Let's make it a date - reports suggest Kevin Rudd will set September 7 for the federal election. ASADA hands over its report on the Essendon doping saga. Will suspensions follow? Ashes fight- back - a batting barrage from the captain and two late English wickets put Australia in control of the third test. Golden girl - Cate Campbell sprints to victory at the World Championships. And the Aussie teen flying solo around the world - an update on Cate Campbell as he reaches the halfway point. -- on Ryan Campbell as he reaches the halfway point. Good morning. It is Saturday, August 3, 2013. Great to have your company this morning. We have got our mojo backI reckon we have. This time last week, seven days ago, we were in despair. Our sporting mongo is back. We've got gold for Cate Campbell in the 100m free. And Michael Clarke had 187 runs. We're also going to speak to Grant Hackett and Ian Healy in the next 10 minutes.Plenty coming up, Cam. First, it's looking increasingly likely we'll be heading to the polls on September 7, with speculation growing the Prime Minister will visit the Governor- General either tomorrow or Monday to seek approval. For more, we're joined now by Nine News reporter Kerrie Yaxley in Canberra. Kerrie, it would appear Kevin Rudd has finally made up his mind on an election date?Sarah, this morning, Fairfax is reporting that senior sources in the Government have confirmed that Kevin Rudd has decided and is going to call an election for September 7. To do that, he needs to visit the Governor-General and ask her for an election either today, tomorrow or Monday, and the speculation is that he'll go to Government House to do that on Sunday or Monday. The reason the speculation is growing so much at the moment is because the Government's mini budget is now out of the way. That was seen as the last big thing for the PM to tick off on his to-do list before going to the polls, Sarah.Let's talk about yesterday's mini budget, Kerrie. What's the response been like so far?It's been fairly critical. That's because the numbers in this mini budget are quite depressing. For example, when former treasurer Wayne Swan handed down the budget in May, it was in the red by $18 billion. Fast- forward not even three months, and we're now $30 billion in the red. Bad news doesn't end there - economic growth is slowing. Unemployment is set to rise to over 6%. The Opposition says that will mean hundreds of thousands of people will be out of work. But despite the fact the Government won't have as much money as it thought it would have, it's still determined to return the budget to surplus in 2016-17. Let's hear from Treasurer Chris Bowen and then Joe Hockey.We are laying out a plan to surplus. We've shown we're prepared to take difficult decisions to get there.If this is what the Labor Party presents on the eve of an election, imagine how bad it is going to be if their rere-elect -- if they're re-elected.You've got to earth why on earth the Government would want to reveal these numbers close to an election. It's so it can put pressure on the Opposition and say, "We've been up- front and transparent and shown you how we intend to get the budget back in the black. Show us how you intend to do it." Whatever happens, one thing is for sure - with budget conditions worsening, the economy will be an even more crucial battleground this election. Some people are calling it the no-money election.Thanks for the update, Kerrie Yaxley, from Canberra. Bit like the pub with no beer. The AFL has been given ASADA's interim report into Essendon's controversial supplements program. Today, the club's period will receive its copy. For more on this, we're joined by Nine News reporter Ayrton Woolly at Windy Hill, Essendon headquarters, today. What does this mean for the club?Cam, basically we're one small step closer to having a resolution to this drugs saga. As you mentioned, the AFL received its copy from ASADA last night. The Bombers will get their first look today. It will take time to digest - it's more than 400 pages in length and references more than 13,000 documents. It could be some time before we get any sort of penalties or findings for the Bombers. Complicating the matters, AFL boss Andrew Demetriou is still overseas on equallisation talks, and the fact that the report itself is still ongoing. It's only an interim report, as explained by AFL general counsel Andrew Dillon last night.I note that ASADA recently received a additional investigative powers, so the investigation will be ongoing. OK. So Ayrton, where to from here? For instance, what does this mean for James Hird?I guess that's the burning question now - he's virtually the last man standing at the Bombers. They've lost their footy manager, their high- performance manager, their sports scientist, and of course CEO Ian Robson and chairman David Evans both resigned. While the pressure has been building on him, his confidence has grown in the past month that he's done nothing wrong, that the players have done nothing wrong, and that's put him head to head with AFL boss Andrew Demetriou in a very public PR battle. He's certainly not assured of his position at this stage. We're expecting to hear from Hird in his -- Hird in his scheduled media conference later this morning. It will be interesting to hear what he has to say.So much fuss about this, and still so far no real penalties laid. Thank you, Ayrton. Let's get the rest of the days news now with Libby Stone. A pregnant woman has been fatally stabbed in the chest at what may have been a party in the Sydney beachside suburb of Maroubra overnight. Neighbours say they heard screaming coming from the unit block just after 1:00 this morning. Paramedics found the 23- year-old with a puncture wound to her chest. She died at the scene. Police say they believe she was having a fight with a man who is known to her. Friends of drowned Gold Coast surf- lifesaver Jerry Dennis will hold a minute's silence today at an event the 17-year-old was due to compete in. Jerry died on Thursday, after he slipped off his board and into a canal in Mermaid Waters. His friends say they'll compete in the state pool rescue championships in Burpengary in his honour. Authorities still don't know the exact cause of Jerry's death, but those who knew him say he was a fit, strong athlete and a rising star. An Australian scientist could be on the verge of discovering a new treatment for childhood cancer. New research has found a modified extract from green tea can kill certain cancer cells. In particular, the anticipate oxidant is effective on neuroblastoma cancers, which are highly resistant to chemotherapy. Neurblast Omagh has the lowest survival rate of all childhood cancers. And Prince Harry has stepped out in full uniform, opening the British Royal Navy centre in Plymouth. The $51 million facility will be used to train service-people in beach landings and hovercraft control. Prince Harry unveiled the centre's plaque. He later chatted to officials and guests, reportedly joking that the pressure is off now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made Prince Charles a grandfather. Now for the latest in sport, here's Erin. Thank you, Libby. Crickets first - Australia will take a 475-run lead into day three of the third Ashes test.

Nine's Roz Kelly has more from Manchester. Michael Clarke really continued to grind England down and, in doing so, added to his shining record as Australian captain.

added to his shining record as
Australian captain. His 187 taking him past Mark Taylor into seventh place on Australia's list of all- time test run-scorers. His 214-run partnership with Steven Smith really set the foundations for Australia's solid innings. Unfortunately, Smith fell heartbreakingly short of a maiden test century on 89. He was out, 11 runs shy of the big milestone. That brought David Warner to the crease, and the entire stadium booed him as he made his test return after serving suspension for punching the England batsman Joe Root in a nightclub a couple of months ago. Warner managed to face 10 deliveries but was out for 5. He call grd a review, didn't -- not thinking he edged the ball. It was clear he certainly did. He was sent packing the. Crowd were very happy to give him a farewell. They certainly let him know it. Starc and Haddin continued to run England ragged, before Clarke called them in, declaring 7 /527 just after tea. It's about time, I guess. Look, I think the team should be extremely proud of the position we're in at the moment. We've copped a bit of criticism after not making enough runs in the ninety-first two test matches, and rightly so. But I think the way everybody did their job in our first innings is credit to all the boys. We've worked exceptionally hard in the lead-up to this test match. It was nice for everyone to the a little result. Australia were back into the field with about two hours left in play, and really put the pressure on England. Nathan Lyon bowled well but didn't take a wicket. It was all Peter Siddle - he took two quick ones. England 2/52 at stumps, still trailing Australia by 475 runs. Australia need to keep that aggression up, because they have to win to keep this series alive. A draw would mean England retain the Ashes.

draw would mean England retain the
Ashes. There was some concern over Ryan Harris, who left the field for about 30 minutes, but it turns out it was just -- he was just feeling slightly ill - there was no concern for injury. Good to hear, Roz. Back home, Geelong coach Chris Scott admits his side blew it in last night's 10-point loss to North Melbourne. Up against his brother Brad in the coaches' box, the Cats couldn't match the

Brad in the coaches' box, the Cats
couldn't match the Roos. North Melbourne had 99 more dish poseles and 23 more contested possessions. Veteran Brent Harvey proved he's still got it.

Harvey's up to 20! How old is he, Dennis?!35, Bruce!Petrie might get on the board! That was Geelong- like! One end to the other! Fine wine. Harvey with an impressive 37 disposals. Daniel Wells kicked a game-high four goals. Roosters coach Trent Robinson has praised five-eighth James Maloney's performance in last night's 42-6 win over Penrith. Maloney finished with a personal haul of 18 points, setting up five of the Bondi boys' seven tries, including one of his own. It's the Roosters' biggest- ever win over the ponthers, seeing them temporarily top spot over the Bunnies.

Cordner's away. They're gonna pile on a record here...In Newcastle, the Knights and Broncos played out an 18-18 draw in golden point. Craig Gower with an absolute shocker from the sideline to not win the match in regular time. Just quickly, Spain has defeated Australia in the final of the women's water polo World Championships.

women's water polo World
Championships. The stingers lost 8- 6 to claim silver in Barcelona, after finishing with bronze in London. At least that's one up. And shortly we'll go to Grant Hackett and look at all the swimming overnight. Third gold medal. We're doing well.Gold for the Stingers in Rio, I reckon. They're on that curve. Trend is their friend.Thank you, Erin. Coming up today - the priest with a big message. We'll find out why he's been posting these controversial messages in front of his church. Father Rod Bower joins us in eight minutes. Good on him. Weather now with Emma Freedman. She's back!The house didn't fall on her. We are back, Cam and Sarah, yes, and we are celebrating 'The Wizard of Oz' this morning at funlands in camen beten. They've got a festival happening here all of next week. This is one of the famous scene from the 1939 film when Dorothy is inside her auntie Em's house after a horrible tornado. It has been picked up and thrown around. It's a scary ordeal for her and her dog Toto. Audiences were looked to the sepia look of the movie in this part of the day. Then, they were invited into the amazing world of technicolour special effects and colourful costumes and make-ups, as Dorothy opens the door and discovers munchkin land, which we are in this morning with some of our wonderful little munchkins! I feel like I'm fitting in more with the munchkins than being Dorothy this morning, but that's OK. I'm going to be laugh at -- laughed at all morning, aren't I?No, gorgeous!It's OK, I can deal with it. These kids will put on a song- and-dance number for us.

Absolutely love 'The Wizard of Oz', often rated one of the top 10 films of all time. These kids from Campbelltown have a great munchkin performance for us. Take it away, little ones! (MUSIC PLAYS)

Not enough munchkins in the world, are there? Their cousins, the Oompa Loompas, are good fun too. Thank you, Emsy. Now live to London for Prince George's very unusual birth certificate. More gold in the pool for our swimmers. Cate Campbell has absolutely smashed them in the 100m freestyle at the World Championships in Barcelona. Grant Hackett joins us now. Hackie, this was great to see. What a dominant effort from her!Yeah, good morning, Cam. She's had a sensational season. She went into these World Championships holding 7 out of the top 10 times in the women's 100m

top 10 times in the women's 100m

top 10 times in the women's 100m
freestyle. She was the red-hot favourite. She got off to a great start. What I loved about this is that she went in with so much pressure, but went out and executed her race plan without fear. You can see in the first 50m, she almost gets a body length on the rest of the field. This was a red-hot field. We had the Olympic champion in there, the previous world champion in there, and she just takes it out superbly, then comes around for the second 50m to hold on and take gold, the third gold medal in the pool this week, which is pretty good. I put it in perspective for people - we hadn't got a major individual gold medal in two years. The last one was actually James Magnussen, because we didn't win any individual gold last year at the Olympic Games in London. It was James back in 2011 at the World Championships in Shanghai. It's great to see us back on the medal dias with three gold medals so far this week.Alright. They've had their problems, no doubt, out of the pool. There's been administrative shake-ups in Australian swimming. But this is the way back to redemption, isn't it - to win and keep on winning? Absolutely. To win and to win in great sportsmanship. That's what these guys are doing. I think we've seen a very different James Magnussen this year to what we saw last year. Cate went through all sorts last year, of course, being ill at the Olympic Games and unable to compete in her pet event. It's just wonderful to see the swimmers back on top, competing well, handling themselves well - like you said, there's been plenty of changes at all levels of the sport, and now we seem to be heading in the right direction. Hopefully some very good times ahead for Australian swimming.The whole squad seems to be on a real up curve. We've just heard the Stingers, our female water polo players, have lost narrowly to Spain, but they're on an improvement curve too, because they've got bronze from London, silver here in Spain, and now we look forward to Rio. This is a very good impetus for our Olympic aspirations for the next time around?Absolutely. There's been a large turnaround in aquatics, full stop. A narrow silver medal for our women's water polo team. In the pool, we've seen not just three gold medals, but a lot of minor medals. Alicia Coutts getting several along the way his week. It's great to see in sport we've had a pretty good week. And in cricket, we've had a great first innings. Not such a good start for the English team as well. In sport overnight, it's been pretty good for Australia. Nice to have something to celebrate!We've got our mojo back, Hacky!Let's hope so. Let's build some momentum from here. That would be fantastic.Alright, mate. Great to speak to you.

That would be fantastic.Alright,
mate. Great to speak to you. Feels good, doesn't it? It is now official - the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have registered the birth of their son, His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge. It's a big name for a little baby. Joining us live from London is journalist Gavin Grey. Good morning, Gavin. Baby Georgie's birth certificate is a little bit unusual? Talk to us about it.It sure is, Sarah. Basically, first of all, of course, you have to register a birth, going to a registrar's office. Not if you're a royal - the registrar comes to you! Alison Cathguard is the name and went to Kensington Palace to get the deed done. What do you put down when it's an occupation? I put down journalist, I suppose. Sorts might put builder, office worker, whatever. Well, Prince - that's what he put, Prince of the United Kingdom was his occupation. The Duchess put her occupation as Princess of the UK. What about the Commonwealth and rel snms anyway. What I also love was he signed it "William". Next time I sign an official document, I'll sign it "Gavin". What we don't know yet is when the official family portrait will be done. I'm hearing from insiders that Prince William desperately wants Prince Philip to be there, but he's simply not well enough yet, so the wait goes on. The royal uncle, Prince Harry - everyone's favourite royal, I reckon - stepped out in uniform. Wears it pretty well, too. What's he been up to?Sarah, calm yourself down!I can't help it!This was the uniform of the Household Cavalry, and the beret o was of the Army Air Corps, where he's a helicopter pilot. He was in Plymouth to open a $46 million Royal Navy centre specialising in the training of those operating amphibious craft. Who'd have known this - that Prince Harry is the commodore-in-chief of small ships and diving! Yes, they've got a Commodore for everything in this country. Unfortunately, I'm not a commodore in anything. Prince Harry was chatting way and overheard to be saying, "The pressure is off," now that he's an uncle. In other words, Prince Charles has got a grandfather. It's all sorted. Who knows what happened what Prince Harry will get up to next!Can't wait! Thank you, Gavin Grey. Always a pleasure. Forever known just as Gavin, like royalty and supermodels.Like Madonna.Earlier this week, a gay- rights Facebook post by the Gosford Anglican Church went viral. The sign reads, "Dear Christians, some people are gay. Get over it. Love, God." That post has received over 100,000 hits. We're joined now by the man behind the sign, Father Rod Bower. Good morning to you, Father. Abdelaziz Boutefrika boutGood morning, Cameron.That's a big response. What did most people say about it?The response has been huge, Cameron.

about it?The response has been
huge, Cameron.

about it?The response has been
huge, Cameron. We've had over 1 million views on Facebook at the moment. As you said, it's gone viral and even got into the 'Vancouver Sun' yesterday. The response has been amazing. Very positive. A lot of gay people or parents of gay people coming back to us on email and Facebook and phoning the office thanking us for raising this issue. And putting it out there for people to be more conscious of.The Christian message is -- has always been, "Love thy neighbour, treat them the way you would like people to treat you." When it comes to certain aspects of human life, the Church has been more hard line, hasn't it, traditionally?I guess it comes down to interpretation of scripture. We look back over the great story that contains the Judea-Christian tradition, and we understand the scriptures with some historical criticism and some scholarship and sometimes we have to realise that the laws laid down by an iron-age nomadic people aren't necessarily perhaps something we would want to impose on people today. As the Church evolves, as society evolves, we have to apply our reason and our intellect in ways that enable what can be quite unjust social structures to be transformed.I think it's great to see the Church openly discussing, in a very public way, questions of morality. You've taken on asylum seekers too, which is an issue that is vexing Australia at the moment.One of the marks of the Anglican Church is to transform unjust social structures, and so the way that we address the asylum seeker issue is really important to us. The idea of radical hospitality is something that permeates the scriptural story. The question for us is, "How do we offer that radical hospitality to people who are homeless and nationless ?" It reflects, I think, deeply upon our nation, how we respond in this issue.How do you respond to critics? Because I'm sure that there are members of your perish that aren't enamoured with your message. -- of your parish that aren't enamoured with your message.Yes, we've had some critical emails and Facebook posts. The Christian Church is a very big jungle indeed, and everybody deserves a tree. But Y interested in growing a tree where people can -- I'm interested in growing a tree where people can feel welcomed and where a kind of biblical spirituality can be lived out where we take the biblical story very seriously, but not necessarily always literally.Yeah, I think compassion has got to be one of the key words. Your signs seem to express that.Compassion is the absolute central aspect of the Christian faith. It was the central aspects of the teaching of Jesus which we seek to emulate - we don't always do it well, but we seek to do that. How we join our hearts to other human beings, especially those - to live in the depths of brokenness is such an important part of being a Christian.Father Rod, we like to break news from time to time on this program. Can you tell us what's going up on the sign next week?I think we'll go back to the asylum seeker issue probably today, and we might - we said to Tony last week that, "Dear Tony, it's not illegal to seek asylum." I think we might say to Kevin this week, "Dear Kevin, PNG is not the answer."OK! Alright. I think you're driving the nail home. Thank you very much for that. Father Rod Bower, taking it to the streets out there, Sarez. Incredible. Great message, particularly off the back of Pope Francis coming out this week and saying, "Who am I to judge whether people are gay or not?" A step in the right direction.He's still judging who can become a priest or not, isn't he?Yes, there is that. But huge inroads are being made on gay couples, which is fantastic. Sure.The Aussie teenager who is out to become the youngest to fly solo around the world - he's reached the halfway point, and we're going to speak to him in our next half-hour.This guy has great spirit of adventure. And he got into a bit of trouble too, like Australia did in the cricket - but we're in a great position now. Can we finish This program is not captioned. MAN: For me, it's the new

You imagine wearing the same pair of jeans every day for a whole year? Ugh, imagine the smell. Sydney man Matthew Scott is at 300 days and counting. He still hasn't washed them. He will be here in studio to tell us why.Those jeans could just about stand up without him, I reckon! Joining us now - Nine cricket commentator Ian Healy. Lots of good stuff to talk about. You in Anzac Square in Brisbane this morning, Heals?I am, Cam. Right behind me is the Eternal Flame of Anzac Square. Just over my shoulder here is a group of soldiers called Wounded Heroes. They're about to walk to Birdsville. How lunatic is that?! They're gonna put in raising money for returning wounded. A great group.Alright. Great group indeed. We're starting to think of the Aussie cricketers as a great group this morning. It's been a good day too. I guess the situation over there is that Australia is dominating this

Australia is dominating this test?

situation over there is that
Australia is dominating this test? They are. We get happy quick, don't we, us Aussies? We love our team again! They've done some hard yards, this Australian side. As Clarkey said in a press conference, they should all be very proud. But there's three days of really hard work to go. They've got to create pressure, they've got to keep pressure on, and they've got to absorb some pressure if a batsman starts playing well against them. But great start. I would probably prefer them to have three wickets down, not one and a nightwatchman, but anyway, let's take it session by session, day three, and see where we end up.Absolutely. When Clarke was out for up with 87, my thought then was it would be great if the tail could put on 100 runs - and they did it pretty easily.Craw, we've got a great tail. Mitchell Starc came in and hit his first scoring shot for four across the spin of Swann, and went well in combination with Haddin. Really, really good. 520 - it's very difficult to see us losing from here. England have got to play out of their skins to bat not only tomorrow, but then the next day, and have a dash at Australia with the ball again. We're in the box seat, but it's another thing to win a test, not just survive one. That's right. It's nice seeing Peter Siddle charge in at the top of this England order. For the first time, some cracks appearing. They got their referral system wrong, for a change!(LAUGHS) Yes. It was the nightwatchman - why doesn't it have to a good batsman, Alastair Cook or something? That would be nice. Things will turn. We're in the lead in this one. What happens is the confident side gets the rub of the green generally in cricket. It's great that Australia have bounced back out of being the one being dominated, and now the things might turn their way. Siddle - fantastic. He's got a knack of picking up that early wicket. He's got to do that again first up tomorrow. Everyone has got to support him in the field. We've got to create some chances. Sometimes through the day we'll have to bounce at the body and really body bash for a while and change things up, if England want to stick around. As a bloke who can bat a bit, Heals, explain to us what happened with the decision not to go to the referral there. We often see batsmen hit a ball and think they didn't, but this time he missed a ball and thought he hit it?!I'm not sure about your first one - that you hit a ball and think you didn't? I'm not sure about that either.(LAUGHS) I think they had a discussion - Alastair Cook is keeping one up his sleeve. He didn't want to waste it just in case. The noise was probably pretty convincing from out there. He said, "No, you can go. You're expendable. Out you go. We'll see if we need one tomorrow and we'll use it better."I reckon you're right onto it, Heals. Plenty to look forward to tonight on GEM in HD of the third Ashes test. Enjoy your morning with the Anzac guys.Thank you very much, Cam. News time now with Libby Stone. We could be heading to the polls on September 7, with speculation mounting Kevin Rudd's finally made up his mind on an election date. Fairfax is reporting the PM plans to meet with the Governor-General tomorrow or Monday to seek approval. Kicking off what's tipped to be one of the most intense political contests in memory. The imminent official start to campaigning comes as the Government defends yesterday's mini budget, which predicts weaker economic growth, rising unemployment, and more debt. A man-hunt is under way after a pregnant woman was stabbed to death in Sydney's east. Let's go live now to reporter Kelly Fedor, who's at the scene. Kelly, what more do we know?Well, this all unfolded, Libby, just after 1:00 this morning. Neighbours say they heard an incredible amount of screaming coming from a unit where there'd been a party. Paramedics found a 23-year-old woman with a single stab wound to the chest. There was nothing they could do to help her, and she died at the scene. A woman was escorted into a police car, but officers say she was not under arrest - she was, in fact, a witness to this death. They also brought in the dog squad to search for a man, but that search was unsuccessful, and that man remains on the run. Police say he is known to the victim, suggesting this is a domestic incident. The Homicide Squad is assisting with the investigation. Forensics have been on the scene throughout the morning. They're looking for clues, dusting for fingerprints, and they are expected to remain here for some time. Libby.Thanks for the update, Kelly. Roos president has -- Nauru's president has flown to Australia, amid reports of plans to build a third detention facility on the island nation. Fairfax says the Nauru government is in talks with local land-owners for the new camp's location. It's unclear how many asylum seekers will be housed there, but an announcement is expected within days. It comes just weeks after a riot broke out at the Nauru detention centre, causing $60 million in damage. A spectacular truck accident in the United States has been caught on police dash camera. The driver of the rig told officers he was forced out of his lane by another motorist. As he veered off the road, his fuel tanks were torn open by the guardrails, causing an enormous explosion. Miraculously, both the truck driver and his son, who was travelling with him, escaped unharmed. As the mercury soars, many parts of Europe are baking, but the zoo animals - well, they're just chilling out. In Germany and Belgium, they're really feeling the heat and looking for ways to keep cool. The baby elephants tried to find some shade where they could, while the polar bears prefer to take a dip and munch on some icy treats. Temperatures reached abo
