(generated from captions) of her time. Is that time 1950? (LAUGHS) (LAUGHTER) Not...OK. Now, you have long campaigned for tougher immigration laws. Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott are both stopping the boats. Do you feel upset that they're stealing your backward ideas?I think they are finally starting to listen to the Australian people.Now, you say that you want to get rid of political correctness. Is that because you enjoy political wrongness?I think people should be able to have a say. Have an opinion. You're entitled to have an opinion. Now, not all your ideas are bad.

Now, you have been to prison and you have been on 'Dancing with the Stars'. Which was more painful? Dancing with the stars. (LAUGHS) Who's your favourite dictator of all time? Oh, I don't think I've got one favourite one.If you rearranged the letters in your name, you get 'Aloha Nun Penis'. Please explain. I could ask you that, Tom.I feel bad sometimes doing this segment, because I'm just peddling hate. Any advise?Are you gonna ask me another question?There aren't any here.You have got a problem, don't you?I have. But thank you very much for joining me, Paulene. I still hate you.Does that mean I'm not getting your vote?Yeah. (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) I have gotta say, though, I mean, pretty gutsy, though, to sit in the Hate chair and sit there and take it.

Morning, Joan.
Kevin. Bob and Jack hired me. They looked for people
who were really passionate about Australian fresh food. Back in '61,
they realised that in Woolies they had found a partner
that definitely was. If it wasn't for Woolworths, many
of our great ideas wouldn't exist. Like our Macro free range chickens.

Together with Woolworths, we're bringing

this? I want money.
Welcome back to Kitchen Time. I'm here with a hot new young chef, Ian Hughie Hewitson. Can I call you Hughie?Sure.You're the forefront of a new health food craze that's sweeping the nation. I believe you were raised by hippies and you have only ever eaten health food. Is that true?We like to keep our insides healthy. Healthy inside, healthy outside.Gosh. I think you're in a cult, but never mind. Move on. I have taken the liberty of preparing something for you, Hughie. It's something I believe you've never tried before. I think you might like it. It's called bacon.Meshel, here's a fun fact about bacon. It's very high in saturated fats and it's dangerously unhealthy for you.OK, if you can just try the bacon, Hughie. If you want a career in this wonderful industry, you're going to have too experiment and try some new things every now and again. Well done. How's it going down?It's not too bad.OK, fantastic. Well, you just help yourself to the bacon.That's not bad at all.While I tell everyone what's coming up on the show. Budd Tingwell is joining us shortly.Oh, the grease!Yeah, yeah. That's the fat. Yes! That's more fat. Get it into ya! Gee whiz. (LAUGHTER) We'll be back shortly. SONG: # Mornings with Meshel! # (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) Welcome back to This Week Live. Hughie, you worked with Hughie? Yeah, I changed his life, I think it's fair to say. Loves the bacon now. Now, Sam, you have been travelling around the region on your one-wheeled bicycle. (LAUGHTER) And what - while the -- highlights? What's the most beautiful place in this big, broad, brown land?Broome, yeah, the sunset at Cable Beach, Horsham.Don't be ridiculous! (LAUGHTER) diculous! It was amazing. There we go.My husband is from there. We have to go there at Christmas, mate. You're nuts.Did you not know at school - that poem? "I will step on the buggers and squash them?"You have gotta love it.I think that's Dr Dre.Guys, we're talking about regions around the country, so I guess it's time for this. MAN: Oh, yeah. So remote. Hmm. That's a sweaty farmer. Oh, you hungry, little fella? Mmm, that's a tasty-looking pineapple. It's regional news. This first one comes from Morayfield in regional Queensland, where yarn bombing has broken out. Yeah.This is where they attack telephone poles with yarn. Basically, have a look. We have an example of yarn bombing here. Yeah, it's pretty ferocious stuff, right? The cops are trying to catch the people in the act, but n fairness, that does only give them, like a2- day window. And you might ask yourself, "Who would commit such a heinous crime?" We have a photo of a suspect. (LAUGHTER) She did raise suspicions at the retirement home when she started walking around saying, "Me do what? Me do please."That gangster!This one's at Ballarat, where your live theatre performance will be. Plug!! I'm only mentioning it because I think it's a pub that's just reopened. And supposedly it was called the most haupted place in Australia, even -- haunted place in Australia. Even though it's been done up, they're still hanging around, the ghosts. Luckily we have someone there on the field. Mel Buttle, are you there?Yep. Yep. You're coming through.Great reception. Mel, apparently there are ghosts hanging around. Have you seen anything like that?I don't know. Last night I heard some weird noises from the room next door to mine. But that just turns out it was Lars, with his German backpacker girlfriend and/or boyfriend, you know what they're like. None of my business, though. When are the ghosts most active in the hotel?They're most active when there's no bookings or it's low tourism season. Unfortunately, though, they're the least active when there's anyone with a camera about. But, hey, that's ghosts for ya!Hey, Mel, is this place the most haunted place you have ever stayed at?No. No. Sam, this is quite tame, compared to the time I slept over at my mum's townhouse. I walked in on her in the shower. She's a very hairy woman, Sam. Confronting! (LAUGHTER) It would be great to get a ghost on camera. Are there any around?Um, oh, gosh, wow. Oh, jeez, I can feel a bit of a supernatural energy around me now, Tom. Hang on. No, it wants to speak through me as a medium. Got a message for everyone. It says, "Oo porks -- it says, "Ooooohh. Give Mel a pay rise. At least give her her own show." I sort of left my body then. What happened, guys? Sorry, Mel, you're break up. Thank you so much. Why don't you give Mel Buttle a round of applause. (APPLAUSE) We're going to a break now. Before we do, Sam's gonna have to leave on his unicycle.

This program is captioned live. From the net work Ten News centre I'm Dani Isdale and this is the Late News. Violent clashes in Egypt as the military carries out its threat to crack down on Morsi supporter camps leaving dozens of dead and injured. The beginning of the end for the Greens - the Liberals can't runaway fast enough on preparations -- preferences and there will be no preference deals from either major party. We talk to the lonelyest man in the house, Green Adam Bandt. And charged coach James Hird is shocked but ready to fight.Shattered I have been charged for bringing a game into disrepute that I love and cherish and respect so much. Also ahead, the happy ending to a delicate operation to free a humpback wail tangled in sharknets on the Gold Coast. And Angela Bishop joins us with good news bringing Patrick fromoff of spring back from the dead - in real life of course. Stkpwhrp but our top story - bloodshed has returned to the streets of Cairo. Many are reported to have been killed and the death toll is understood to stand at 30. Pitched street battles are continuing in Cairo with reports the battles are spreading to other parts of the divided nation. The pictures are outside the flashpoint mosque where streets have been blocked off by the army and razor wire set up. There is are violent confrontations with the crowd and canisters of tear gas being fired. These are live scenes from the mosque - the latest flashpoint. The simmering anger was sparked with security s fors backed by armed cars and bulldozers moved in to clear protest camps occupied by supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. Banks and train stations, police stations are reportedly now closing and journalists on the ground have been pushed back. Some have reported coming under heavy fire near the mosque. Can you describe for us what has been happening?In the early hours of this morning Egyptian securitys fors deployed in the direction of the pro-s fory sit-ins taking place for weeks now in the eastern end, southern part of the capital. They were able fairly quickly to completely disperse the protests in the southern part of the capital by Cairo University. But the large encampment in the eastern part is still continuing. Of course the authorities had been talking for weeks now about their patience running out, about the need for these protests to come to an end - something that they are clearly carrying out now. In the past hour also the government is reacting to the security operation, lauding the performance of security forces, saying it will not tolerate any armed resistence. Several casualties, a large number of casualties reported on both sides so far.We are hearing differing reports of the number of dead. Can you shed any light on that?It is going to be very difficult for us to use a number at this stage and say with full credible authority this is the number of casualties, given that the story is still developing. More importantly, one has to be very careful at this stage, because both sides of the confrontation have in the past used inaccurate numbers - it's in the interests of protest organisers to inflate the number of casualties as much as it is in the interests of the interim authority and security forces to down play the number of casualties. But our colleagues on the ground report that dozens of people lost their lives in the pro- Morsi sittins. One of our cameraman saw at least 30 bodies. On the security side of things, the police are saying at least three Police Minister have lost their lives in the confrontation so far.How do you envisage the next few hours playing out. We hear that the Muslim Brotherhood is calling on Egyptians to mobilise?What has been going on in the sit had-ins has had a repercussion nation wide. It's no longer confined to the sit- ins with the government shutting down the railway network. The central bank has ordered banks to close early. You are already seeing the national repercussions. You get the sense that both sides, the leadership of the brotherhood and the government are digging in over their positions and not backing down. The question is: Will this violence affect any potential for a negotiated settlement or will the scope of violence force both sides to come to the negotiating table? Thank you very much for that update. As this story develops we will bring you the latest details throughout the bulletin. The Greens have accused both major parties of conspiring against them after they ruled out doing deals to form a minority Government. It could mean Australians return to the polls if the September 7 election is tight. In a moment we speak to the only Greens MP left in the lower House Adam Bandt. But first here is Ursula Heger.Kevin Rudd was dishing it up in Brisbane at the Royal Ekka Show and copping a serve of his own. Back for another bite in the state that's dominating the election campaign.You're doing a good job. Don't let them get to ya. I won't.It wasn't the only place he found support. Tony Abbott announcing the coalition will preference Labor above the Greens in every electorate.This is my captain's call. I say to Mr Rudd, be man enough to do the same.He also ruled out leading a minority Government, meaning Australians could go back to the polls if there were a tight finish.The last three years has been a litany of betrayals, broken promises, of disapointed hopes.He cannot govern without the Nationals. This is all just hot air from Tony Abbott.It was Liberal preferences that helped the Greens over the line in Melbourne. Now the seat could go back to Labor. Kevin Rudd also took aim at Labor's former partner. There will be no coalition arrangements with either the Greens or minor parties. Furthermore, no negotiated agreementss as you have seen in the past.A day after Mr Abbott's section appeal gaff his daughter was defending him.A dad moment.But the Opposition Leader was again on the back foot over comments on radio over gay marriage. I'm not someone who wants to see radical change based on the fashion of the moment.Good on you.Can you describe sexual orientation as the fashion of the moment? That's deeply offensive. Mr Abbott's gay sister told her Twitter followers he wasn't speaking for her. He tried to qualify.I think it's a very significant issue. It's a very significant issue.Both leaders will be giving Queensland voters a brief respite tomorrow with Mr Rudd making his first visit of the campaign to the Northern Territory, while Tony Abbott will take off to Tasmania. Ursula Heger reporting there. StkphrooJoining us now is the MP for Melbourne, Adam Bandt. How much of a blow is this to your chances? I don't think it will make much of a difference. We had always assumed since day 1 Labor and the coalition had reached some deal on preferences in an attempt to get us out and make sure there are not third voices in the parliament. Our campaign has been based around growing our primary vote and being runned in our own right regardless what the others do on preferences. The indications are if we keep working hard over the next few weeks we're on track to do exactly that.You were legislated in 2010 with the help of references. What makes you sure you won't need them again?In 2010 we had 36% of people in Melbourne voting for the Greens. That was on the back of 11.6 million people around the country saying they wanted an alternative progressive voice in parliament. The analysts came out today and said if we can grow our vote, which grew by 13% last time, by somewhere in the order of 4% or 5% this time we're in a position to hold the seat regardless of what the others do on preferences. The closer we get to the election and the more that Kevin Rudd tries to out Abbott Tony Abbott on the question of refugees, the more we see cuts to university funding, climate change programs and the more people are coming to me saying they want a clean economy and a caring society and they are switching to the Greens.You're taking this as a compliment but you must admit it doesn't do your party any favours losing preferences?When Tony Abbott says what I would really like is a Labor backbencher representing the seat of Melbourne rather than Adam Bandt because he is having too much influence. I see that as a badge of honour. I will probably put that on my campaign materials. What Tony Abbott knows is that a Labor backbencher will vote with them to cut parental payments or vote to keep people in detention indefinitely and they know the Greens won't. Which is why ultimately they are scared. They want to keep parliament as a two- party closed shop where third progressive voices don't get a say. Potentially it might back fire for him as people understand you have two choices in Melbourne. You either do what Tony Abbott wants or vote Greens.What do you make of both leaders' commitments now to not do any deals post election? Mr Abbott says he wants a clear majority and that the hung parliament failed to be effective? How did you view it?Tony Abbott and his Liberal Party doesn't have a majority in parliament. They are only potentially able to win with the support of other minority party called the Nationals that gets less support than the Greens that. Seems perfectly acceptable to him. Is Kevin Rudd really saying if it came down to his friend Bob Katter's vote he would rather go back to the election rather than talk with people sitting on the crossbenchs? I think this is arrogant and high handed. At the end of the day it's incumbent on those leaders and the other political parties to respect what the Australian people put up as a result of the election. Finally, I appreciate you are taking all this as a compliment, you may have no other choice. You say it won't damage your choices. What do you say about betting agencies like sporting bet punting on the greebs winning zero seats, the best odds?A Galaxy poll released in my seat of Melbourne a week or so ago suggest mid primary vote was 48%, well above what analysts are saying would be needed for us to win our seat in our own right. I'm not taking my guidance from what the book makers might say who are making money from elections. I'm taking guidance from what people in Melbourne are telling me. I will be back in a moment with the fall-out from the latest chapter of the Essendon supplements saggia. The Commonwealth Bank has posted Australia's biggest ever banking profit. But it's CEO has offered a bleak message about the economic outlook. Similar Kerrly, is this becoming a pattern?Indeed it is. It seems every year the banks are reporting record profits and then their CEOs say they are concerned about the economic outlook and the following year they record another record profit. Well, that happened again today. The Commonwealth Bank reporting a whopping cash profit of $7.8 billion, up 10% on the previous financial year and well above market expectations. Shareholders will get a dividend of $3.64 for every share they own. They had had hoped for a little more given the earnings but the CEO said conditions just weren't right. Based on the performance of the Commonwealth Bank which you have seen and the signs we have in the business today, we feel the economy is performing fine. But that we can clearly see some risks to the down side and therefore we have to continue to be conservative. Mortgage holders could be a little bit miffed by the results as well because the Commonwealth Bank didn't pass on all of the RBA's interest rate cuts in full last year. Interestingly, CBA shares closed down today more than 1%. An army officer has been charged over a fatal truck accident at Holsworhthy barracks last year. 15 soldiers were thrown from the troop carrier when it hit a tree during a training exercise. All were taken to hospital including a 21-year-old Sapper who died three days later. The accused officer has been granted bail and will reappear in court next month charged with dangerous driving. A man and woman in their 20s have been denied bail accused of robbing a 94-year-old war veteran. Clive had coins and a gold necklace stolen after the pair followed him into his home and ransacked it. Today strangers banded together to support Clive, pledging $5,000 to support him. There is $500 worth of shopping vouchers.Topping it off, the necklace he wore throughout the war was returned by police. A woman is fighting for life after a housefire in Sydney that killed her husband. Emergency crews arrived at 3.30 this morning and found the pair trapped inside. Les died a short time after being taken to hospital.The smoke was from the ceiling straight to the floor. Their son Mark and his girlfriend managed to flee the burning house. Fire crews are working to determine how the fire started. Pregnant women across the country are taking part in a new study to help prevent type 1 diabetes. The number of type 1 cases has doubled over the past 20 years and a national study is hoping to identify risk factors such as being overweight before or during pregnancy.Particularly what in our modern environment has changed a lot is driving the development of type 1 diabetes.1,400 pregnant women or new mums are taking part across Australia. Rescuers have freed a whale caught in sharknets on the Gold Coast. It's the third wail to become trapped in the area this season. Sea World and the department of fisheries got to work after a member of the public alerted them to the distressed mammal. It was freed 40 minutes later. To the weather: I will have tomorrow's forecast a little later on. Also, Navy personnel killed in a submarine explosion in India.The Essendon Football Club has come out swinging making it clear it's gearing up for a fight against charges laid by the AFL. A lawyer advising the club has spoken publicly for the first time questioning whether the anti-doping investigation will stand up in the courts. Emma O'Sullivan reports. One of the greats of the game, James Hird, was polite as ever delivering fighting words, defending his tarnished reputation. I think we have a look at our options. We will obviously defend ourselves viing rusely and contend the charges and make sure we're proven not guilty and we go from there.Sports scientist Stephen Dank is supporting his former colleagues.The whole thing is laughable and ludicrous but they will sort it out.As for the players, on the available evidence no action is being taken against them.I suppose we know a few things a lot of people don't. Yeah, we were always pretty were always pretty but they've been warned. The investigation into what they were administered last year is ongoing. Those charged now have two weeks to prepare before facing the AFL commission.One of the potential sanctions for Essendon is that they don't play in the financial this is year. So the AFL I'm sure wants to have that issue resolved prior to - one way or the other - prior to the final series.A sports lawyer advising Essendon told the 7.30 program he believes ASADA did not have the power to enter an investigation with the AFL.So the whole idea of the joint investigation is fundamentaly flawed and has the potential to cause the whole process up until today to be invalid.Former Essendon coach Kevin Sheedy feels for his old club offering words of support for long time friend Dr Bruce Reid.Probably putting a big gun in front of Bambi on this one. Good luck, because most people know the calibre of Dr Bruce Reid.And on Hird daring to take on the might of the AFL?He has always shown an enormous amount of courage. You have to be courageous to take on the AFL on this matter.It's true not many have taken on the league and won.Emma O'Sullivan reporting there. Do stay with us.

You're watching the Late News. Let's return to our developing story tonight out of Egypt. If we can go now to live pictures from Cairo. More than 50 people have been reported killed in the latest crackdown by securitys fors on supporters of Mohammed Morsi. Reporters on the ground say most of the dead suffered gunshot wounds. A British cameraman and at least five Police Minister are among the dead. We will bring you more on the chaos in Cairo as it comes to hand. Now to another developing news story out of the US?Emergency crews are at the scene of a cargo plane crash in Alabama. Police say the UPS aircraft came down at 6 on approach to Birmingham airport. It's believed only the pilot and co pilot were aboard. India's defence minister has confirmed Navy personnel have been killed in a submarine explosion. It's not sure how many fatalities there are, but 18 sailors were feared trapped after the vessel caught fire in Mumbai. A team of Navy divers has been deployed to search for survivors. It's not known what caused the blast. I will be back soon to update our top stories. Let's go to the markets now:

Juliet, it was one of the busiest days on the reporting calendar so far but the market closed flat. Why weren't investors buying?What investors are really looking for in this reporting season is either profits that shoot the lights out or very strong guidance. Despite solid reports today from CSL, Primary Health Care and Lleyton Holdings the market was subdued. It saw its share -- profit triple but the share price dropped because of expectations of a flattening mining sector.We have seen figures released today that show wages growing at the slowest pace since the year 2000.Wages were up just 0.7% in June, the slowest pace in 13 years. Employers are offering more flexible arrangements to keep their workers happy but not such a big pay rise. They're trying to cut costs and keep their profitability going. Fortunately, though, annual wages growth is outpacing inflation which means employs are getting a pay rise while companies are managing to keep down costs. She has a smile the snowboarding world knows very well. Torah Bright, our bubbley Olympic champion is keen to get back in the half pipe for another crack at gold at the winter Olympics in Sochi next year. But the games are likely to be her last in green and gold. Snowboarding's pin-up girl who lives in the states and travels the world like a rock star. But for Torah Bright it doesn't get any better than riding between the Gum Trees back home.This is where we were as a family during winter where mum and dad made us be all day on the weekends. Because the kids didn't fight when we were outside.It paid off. The 26-year- old won Australia's first ever Olympic medal in the half pipe at the 2010 Vancouver games and overcame two concussions to cinch gold on her final run. Since then life has been a whirlwind.The more years that go by the more it sings in and the more I become more comfortable with it. And confident with it too. I'm like, "Yeah, I'm an Olympic champion."But with all of the fame and success comes pressure and the expectation of the nation to deliver again in Sochi. I'm gonna say to that, "I will do my best." The stars have to align. You wouldn't know it but her personal life has been challenging of late as she deals with the breakdown of her short marriage to an American snowboarder. The upbeat Aussie won't let it affect had her in Russia. She has reunited with her brother Benny as coach.By chasing the three events I'm enjoying snowboarding more than ever. I feel like a giddy12-year- old again who just eats it up. I love it.Despite the loss putt briet says Sochi will probably be her last competition but you will still see her calving up the mountains as a free rider for big- paying sponsors.All of my friends are here. Angela with the entertainment news?We were all watching the 'Offspring' finale tonight? Certainly actor Matt has been in the headlines thanks to the shock death of his character Patrick Reid in 'Offspring'. But we can say hello again. He is back in hospital, this time he is not making TV but rather a real difference to the lives of children suffering a brutal form of cancer. I think you will soon love his co- star in this story just as much as you love Matt.Is it OK to pick you up and put you on the bike?The young kids are affected from such a young age. Before the age of 5. Because it's such a new type of cancer, we're still learning so much about it, we don't find out that they have it until stage 4.Do you have to have lots of treatments?Yeah. I think what sorts of things? Needles, blood tests.He is such a positive person. He doesn't remember anything else other than living with cancer. He doesn't remember before he was four. He loves life, his family and school. He keeps our spirits up. Where is that soccer ball, I wonder. Here it comes. You've got to hang on to that. As life goes on, with a profile like that from 'Offspring' I couldn't think of helping something better.The inspiration for Yams was my granddaughter who was diagnosed with this when she was only two. Our lives were changed forever. Despite almost 1,000 days of treatment she died with total skeletal cancer. Not long before they died she looked up, she said, "I feel like crap. It's not fair." I promised her I would find a cure. We are a Phillip Island based charity. We have the Grand Prix there ever year so we decided to write to the Grand Prix and us them to be their charity.Every dollar you raise goes to research. Everyone is working as a volunteer. I will be down with the tin and stall and doing everything I can to help. If I can do something to help one kid for one day that has meant my whole career has been worth it. You see that?Yeah.That's like the accelerator in a car. That is the brake.I love bikes. I have had bikes my whole life. This is the first time I will be in the country when the race is on.This is on old Italian with a flat top?It was flat because I crashed it. Mum didn't know that. I bought an old one a few years ago and I was foolish enough to ride too quick. Did you have to rebuild much of yourself after you came off?I was lucky. I came off with a scratch and ruined helmet and clothes. I walked away.Dr Patrick wasn't so lucky.No, he just had a bump on the head poor old Pat. Sad, huh? Social media - let's start with that. Twitter and Facebook went crazy last week. Much of it directed at you. Did you get questions?I've got a lot of family and friends coming out of the woodwork asking why haven't I told them. Through tears I think. Facebook was a bit weird.Why did you have to go? What was the reason? Was it your idea? Who can we blame?Blame the writers. It was a mutual decision.
