And Gary Ablett wins his second Brownlow medal by just one vote.Good afternoon, you're watching News 24. I'm Kumi Taguchi. Let's take a quick look at the weather first in the capital cities around the nation for tomorrow -

Lesses are continuing on the local share market with declines across the board. Both the All Ordinaries and the ASX 200 are down half a percent. Less than a week ago the new Government axed the Climate Commission with immediate effect. Today its former Chief Commissioner Tim Flannery has relaunched the advisory body with a new name and a new funding model. The Climate Council as that's now called will be funded by public
donation, Professor will be funded donation, Professor Flannery
says the will be funded by public
donation, Professor says the new body is already enjoying strong enjoying strong support.We're well known to the public, so we are going to continue on in a new organisation which will be funded by donation. We went live at midnight and we had our first donation from James from Perth of $15 at midnight. We've been raising about $1,000 an hour since then and that's through night. I can assure people that we will not allow our independence to be compromised by anyone on this, we were the same in Government. We were absolutely apolitical and we understand that our sins central to our credibility. So if people do donate don't try to influence what we do. The overwhelming volume of support from the public was what really made us decide on this, particularly over the last five days or so. We have had people from across the political spectrum just saying that an informed public in this area is absolutely saedges and we want you to continue, we use your report, we need a clear, credible and authoritative and independent voice in this area credible and and that there's really never been independent voice in been a more critical time for that voice than been a more critical that voice than now. Under the Government model we cost about $5.4 million over a full year period, we think we can work leaner than that as a private group, but there's doubt that there is a big challenge there, gain diagnose money to make sure that we get out. We held 27 public forums around the country publish the same number of reports and developed a website and all of that does cost money but we're confident with the support that we've hat expressed and delivered that we'll be able to achieve that. We have simply one goal and one objective and we always have which is to take the science, the economic of climate change and what's happening internationally in terms of action and present it in a clear and understandable way an authoritative way to the Australian public.The Federal Opposition has called on the Government to tell the public its intentions for the board of the company running the nobody NBN Co. Malcolm asked for the board's resignation although it's urngs two have been asked to stay and the former Telstra boss Ziggy Switkowski is expected to be named as the head of NBN Co. A minimum of three people are needed in ordertor board to function. Labor frontbencher Ed Husic who serveded as parliamentary Secretary for broadband in Government has told political editor Lyndal Curtis that the Government need to explain its plans for the NBN.Welcome to News 24. Is this decision that the majority of the NBN Co board won't be staying on a surprising one given that the Coalition's policy has never been to do what NBN was set up to do?The fact that the bulk of board don't want to stay is a shocking reflection on where things are headed with broadband. The last time the Coalition was in Government they made a mess of broadband and it looks like they'll make the same mistakes all over again. This board knows that what the Coalition's proposing is going to put Bendigo policy back and why would they be handing around for that but we're getting conflicting messages because on the one hand we hear the board's put forward the resignation, Malcolm Turnbull hasn't said anything in relation to it and then in ter othere's selective leaking that he's asked for the resignations, we have no clear idea, we have a Communications Minister that's refusing to communicate, or he's just adopting scoption approach and will just tell us every so often what he's doing .It's not even a week since's been sworn in, as a new Communications Minister, doesn't he need to spend some time getting things right, he doesn't necessarily need to do everything on day one does he?Well, it's not my job to Minister's intent on communicate the communication Minister's intent on policy but what Minister's intent what we did say was that he would review what we did say was would review where things were at. We had a process of doing that, we had a number of layers of accountability for NBN Co, but he hasn't by all accounts from whatever we can draw together in what's in the news at the moment, he hasn't even taken the time to see what's going on before he's made a decision, there are a lot of people that are there that can add value but it appears that they're not willing to stick around because the big difference between us and them on broadband is we wanted one network across the country, now what's going to happen is that there are rival networks that will be set up and what they'll do is pick the most profitability markets of the country and they'll build their networks there and what we'll see in regional Australia is instead of a uniform standard network with uniform price, well see cheaper prices for some, why would an Nobel Peace Prize board want to sign up for something or stay on deck when they esee that the NBN will Malcolm Turnbull is pulled apart in the way that proposing.There's speculation that former Telstra boss Ziggy Switkowski - is stip tipped to head NBN Co. He's a man of experience in this head NBN Co. experience in this area isn't
he?Yes

people are making a broad reflection on his time as the Telstra CEO and before that he was with aptus but he's not really been involved in a roll out of in nature before so that there will be question marks about how that will pan out.This is a first for Australia so really there are very few people apart from those people involved now who have been involved in a rollout of this nature?I'm taking what the Coalition said before hand, they said that they wanted to see someone with infrastructure expertise in these roles, and if they're going now to Mr Switkowski again, with all due respect to him, I don't know knowsly what his background is in necessarily rolling out frock network of this kind, but the thing is they made a mess of broadband when they were in Government last time, it seems like they're going to make a mess of it again and the first job of the incoming CEO is now apparently renegotiating a deal with Telstra, where Telstra are saying that they're not going to take or accept anything lower than what they got for the price already and they're not willing to keep renegotiating these type of complex arrangements where it does take a lot of time and a lot of resources do it and they're not just going to keep chop Argentina changing the agreements.There will have to be renegotiation with Telstra won't there because Labor had negotiated in to get access to Telstra's pits and duct, the Coalition wants to take over Telstra's copper to make the connection from the node to the home so there will have to be changes to that deal?Spot only. This is a critical thing, that under the arrangements we made , one of the biggest deals around that took some time, we had to be very tough with Telstra and Telstra are not an organisation that you just walk over in negotiations, they're equally hard headed and understandably so, they have share holders to report to, under our deal we only evergate of course cress to the duct. We never ever leased or bought copper. Telstra has basically a desperate copper. Telstra desperate customer in the
Coalition copper. Telstra has basically a Coalition and the Coalition has never said how much it will cost to lease or buy that copper off Telstra and that's what they'll have to do. There have been have been all sorts of reports about how much that copper network cost. Within report suggested it was $40 billion for the copper network. Either the Coalition is going to buy it or lease it. We don't know because the Coalition has never been upfront about it and we have a Communications Minister who won't communicate.The Labor leadership ballot opens today. Caucus won't vote until act but have you made up your mind who you'd like to see as leader?I think that people have been excited rank and file members out in western Sydney that I talk to do reallile look forward to the opportunity of being involved and I think it's been a great process. So they're going through making their mind up as to who they'd vote for. I've indicated that ill be supporting Bill Shorten pause I think Bill is a generational change for us, he will bring a fresh outlook to the leadership. He's got a very solid portfolio or policy track record, particularly in term of what he did with disability care and being the key architect behind that and I think that he will be someone that can bring the party together, that can also focus on policy, he's a fresh outlook and him, it takes nothing and I'll be casting my vote for him, it takes nothing away from Anthony Albanese who is a fantastic - has been a fantastic contributor to the Rudd-Gillard Governments and will be an important player either if he's elected as leader or as the senior Opposition player as well.Ed Husic thank you very much for your time.Thank youFederal Labor's two leadership hopefuls Anthony Albanese and Bill Shorten will go head-to-head tonight. The pair will debate each other in Sydney. Labor's 40,000 members are being given a chance to vote on who should lead the party . A second debate will be held in Melbourne on Friday. And we will bring the leader's debate live a and in full this evening on News 24, that's the leader's debate between Bill Shorten and Anthony Albanese live tonight from 3:30 eastern. The siege at a shopping mall in Nairobi has entered its fourth day with an unknown number of gunmen still holding out against Kenya's security forces. 62 people have been killed so far, mostly shoppers gunned down by the Islamic militants. Authorities believe the last of the hostages has been been freed. Heavily armed police are systemically securing the building but a final showdown could be looming.The final push to save the remaining hostages. A series of explosions shook the Westgate shopping mall. Troops took cover as the firing intensified. Tennian authorities blamed the attackers for the thick column of smoke that can be seen four kilometres.We have done such of the building and we can confirm that the hostage s almost all of them have been evacuatedExplosion and gun shots were parent of an operation to es cue more hostage, it's understood two militants were killed during this most recent attack.We also want to confirm that we have identified and killed two criminals. Two terrorists.This is as close as we've been allowed to get. We've just heard a series of explosions and some automatic gunfire cog from just behind me. There it feel loose thrik this significant to come to a conclusion. Crowds of onlookingers gathered. Among the many faces was a man who told us the militants try to kill him.I saw he was aiming directly at me with the machine gun. The bullet pass across my head where I was coming from.Al-Shabaab had promised to kill the hostages if the Kenyan troops attacked. As yet the no-one knows if that happened. The siege has been going on for close to three days now and the pressure is mounting on the authorities to resolve parliament has paid tribute to a locally born architect and his partner who died in the Nairobi shopping centre attack . Ross Langdon died along his pregnant girlfriend Yavuz when the shopping centre in nobody yes was stormed by militants on Saturday. He was working in South Africa on cultural projects while Ms Yavuz worked for the Clinton health initiative.They were both highly regarded and respected as people who had dedicated their lives to making a difference in the world through their work in developing countries. The world has lost two remarkable young people who had so much to contribute.The former US President Bill Clinton has also expressed his sympathies to the family N a statement describes Ms Yavuz was a deeply admireded by her colleagues the couple was expecting their first child in a north night. World leaders have descend on New York for the annual meeting of the United Nations General Assembly. With Australia currently holding the rotating presidency of the Security Council, it's also an early test for the Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.Stepping out on to the world stage. It was a whirlwind of a first international foray for Australia's in uly minted Foreign Minister, representing the Abbott Government at the world's I thinkle biggest gathering of heads of State.It's been quite a journey to get here but now really...There were back-to-back meetings with the Foreign Minister of nine countries including Iran, China, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia where Australia's campaign to stop the boats was on the agenda.But our relationship with Indonesia is much broader than that one issue of border protection.At a women's round table Julie Bishop spoke as Australia's first female morn Minister but as for the Cabinet...Not as many women as he would have liked but we have a talented pool from which to draw in the future.As the general assembly convenes the dilemma of how to enforce a plan to rid Syria of chemical weapons looms large. All eyes too are on the Iranian President Hassan Rowhani amid signs of a thaw in relations with the US and hopes the moderate new leader might be open to curtailing his country's nuclear program. TRANSLATION: We will introduce the real face of the rainian nation to the world, a nation that loves kurltd and peace.In terl of whether we're on the verge of a breakthrough I would put it like this, that I was struck as I said by the energy and determination that the Foreign Minister demonstrated to me.With so many international issue at a critical juncture, it could well be one of the most pivotal general assembly meetings in recent memory.Rolf Harris has indicated he'll plead not guilty to child sex offence charges. The internationally renowned artist and singer faced court for the first time after being interviewed by British police last year.It was to be just a brief appearance, but guaranteed to make a headlines. Rolf Harris faced court and dozens of cameras. The 83-year-old walked slowly flanked by his wife and supporters making no comment.

The captain of the 'Costa Concordia' has blamed his Indonesian helmsmen for running the ship into rocks and killing 32 people last year. Francesco Schettino has told a court set up in theatre in Tuscany that his juniorer this officers steered right when he was told to turn left.

A total fire ban is in place across much of north-eastern NSW today is in place north-eastern NSW today where a number of grass fires are under control. For more I'm joined now control. now by Inspector Ben Shepherd from the Rural Fire Service. Thank you for your time this afternoon. Could you tell us what are conditions like at the moment?We are now starting to see those weather conditions that were predicted come to fruition. Temperatures are starting to rise, that cloud cover that we've seen across many areas is starting to break up and that's actually leading to winds starting to increase, in some areas in western Sydney over the past hour or so we've seen temperatures rise by 2 or 3 degrees so we're now moving into that time of the afternoon where we are expecting conditions to be at their worst.Particularly with so much of these grass fire, could you explain for us that combination of the heat and the wind and how that can be such a dangerous combination when grass fires are involved?Grass fires can start is quickly and spread rapidly. They can move up to 20 or 30km/h in the worst of conditions and can catch people offguard so that's why it's important if anyone is travelling around the State today and they do see an unattended fire they need to call 000 immediately because in these conditions they can escalate quickly. We need to get crews on to those fires before they escalate and impact on homes or roads.This is such a widespread area under a total fire ban today, is this unusual at this time of year?No, it's not unusual to see these total fire bans at this time of year, we are only now a week oi way from the statutory bushfire danger eerd but it's not unusual especially in September to see these warm westerly winds move through. It is a timely reminder if you haven't done your bushfire survival plan you need to do that planning and preparation now before we head into those hot months of summer.What do you expect over the next couple of days? Do you expect conditions to ease at all?Over the next 24-48 hours there is the chance that temperatures may come down a bit but looking further into the week there is the possibility of some stromg winds again. Ifl tonight forecast there is no real amount of money so that's what we're looking forward to, when that rain can move through and givis a bit of a break so meanwhile we're asking the public's assistance here, remain vigilant, remain prepared until we see the worst of this fire weather through.Inspector Ben Shepherd from the Rural Fire Service, thank you for your time afternoon.Thank you.Time now for sport with Sacha Mirzabegian and big change for Socceroos?It's timely one though, Socceroos coach Holger Osieck has dumped goalkeeper #2345sh8 squad, the Australian Mark Schwarzer from the #2345sh8 team will take on Canada and team France next month in two team will take on Canada international France next month international friendlies, now, 20-year-old international friendlies, 20-year-old Jackson Irvine a surprise inclusion after showing form a surprise showing form for the young Socceroos and a Scottish Holger Osieck Socceroos and a Holger Osieck has named two keepers to replace Mark Schwarzer. A best on ground performance in the final round of the AFL season has helped Ablett win his second Brownlow medal. The Gold Coast captain polled 28 votes in the best and fairest count to win the league's highest individual honour. He received three votes in the last round to leap frog Joel sell wod and Dane Swan.I walked into the night pretty relaled. I didn't really have any expectations, I thought if I walk away with its it's great if I don't I'll St still walk out with a smile on my face but I thought I was in with a chance and it depended on how well some of the guys polled and lucky enough to get up my vote in the end.It has been very different. I'm sure it's going to be over the next couple of days as well but I guess I haven't got a game to prepare for which is going to give me an opportunity to catch up with family and celebrate with them which I'm really looking forward to and I'm sure - I think my dad is going to drive up today. When it comes to individual awards you'd say yes but it's very hard to compare yearsment we won eight games this year compared to three in the previous two years, and I think as a team we're playing a lot better so that makes it easy to play well as an individual when your team-mates are so I've really enjoyed the year, superproud of the boys' efforts this year.Team US continues to upstage Team New Zealand in the race for the America's Cup. The Kiwis held an 8-1 lead but their opponents have fought back and are now within their opponents have back and are now within an unlikely back and are now unlikely win.It's been days since team New Zealand moved one race win from victory and one race with conditions favourable the latest day of America's Cup racing got under way. The start's always critical and the sailing gods were start's always critical sailing gods were again with

Oracle team USA get the win.It's the American's fifth win in a row and they themselves are three away from hoisting one of sport's oldest trophies.

The Rabbitohs fell short in the preliminary final last year and Roy Asotasi says it's that experience that's helping the team focus this week.Last year we fell short of the grand final, so that's whier with not going too far ahead and all it takes is going to be 80 minutes, it could be all over and for us it's just day by day and making sure that preparations, everything and what we need to work on, the week off did us a whole lot of good for a lot of guys that were trying to get over nigglesIn cricket England has announced their squad for the upcoming Ashes series N Australia Alistair Cook will captain the touring team which includes Boyd Rankin and Ben Stokes, Gary Ballance the Zimbabwean born batsmen is one of the surprising inclusions with Michael Carberry, Monty Panesar and Chris Tremlett also named.

team, they that. Consistency.They're
going to win it 3-nil, the Aussies,y is know it.A precious ring once owned by Jane Austen is to remain in the UK following a highly publicised campaign. The ring was boigts by a American singer Kelly Clarkson but she has agreed to give it up.One ring, two women, three centuries of history. It first belonged to Jane Austen and was passed down through her family. #Last year the American pop singer Kelly Clarkson who liked it so much she wore a replica paid £150,000 for the original at auction. But fearing a major work of art would be lost to Britain, an export ban was imposed. The Austen museum in Hampshire then campaigned to match the funds to keep it and now they've succeeded.Amazing and very grateful to everyone who has donated large or small Clarkon
and grateful also to Kelly Clarkon because without the publicity of it belonging to that young lady I don't think we would have ever been able to raise that much so
quickly.It's here at chorton in the final eight years of her life that Jane Austen wrote life that Jane Austen wrote or revised all her major novels. It's also where the ring will finally be returned in time for Valentine's Day of next year. But saving art through export bans can be controversial. These two pieces were kept, but this pair by George Stubbs are still being challenged by foreign buyers.If we stop worries about whether works like that are drifted off aboard it would be the same as stopping worries about our culture itself so yes it does matter.We don't know what Jane Austen thought of her ring as she wrote here, but Kelly Clarkson is set to be happy it's staying in Britain. A little bit of pride, sense and persuasion combining to keep it here.And let's check tomorrow's weather now with Vanessa O'Hanlon.The two main weather systems at the moment, a cold front moving through the south-west with showers and gusty winds, it's making its way into the Bight and also a trough that's taking that very hot ware over towards Queensland and NSW. There is a slight change behind that with sors expected to move mainly along the NSW south coast a weak front to cross Tasmania and deepening fronts over the next couple of days, weth and Thursday we are expecting heavy rains over Tasmania. A high is also contributing to the extreme bushfire risk throughout Queensland from the channel council across the southern interior and to the granite belt and also a total fire ban for NSW from the north-east down to Sydney.

The top stories from ABC News - The top - the axed Climate Commission is being revived, sacked Climate Commissioner Tim Flannery has relaunched its as Flannery has relaunched its a privately funded Climate Council. The Abbott Government scrapped the body last week and one of its first policy changes, but Professor Flannery says he has received overwhelming public support to keep it going. Kenya's Foreign Minister has confirmed reports that theern Ms And Britons are among those who attacked the shopping mall in Nairobi I one man says two or three young American men and a British The
woman were among the attackers. The siege is still going on, at least 62 people have been killed. Rolf refusal is due to face a London court again in two weeks after a preliminary hearing on charges of indecent assault of under-age girls. The veteran entertainer faces nine counts of indecent assault dating back to the 308s, his lawyer has indicated that the 83-year-old will plead not guilty. And Gary Ablett has won his second Brownlow medal in a nail-biter. The Gold Coast captain was trailing his former Geelong team-mate Joel Selwood until the final round, Ablett picked up three votes giving him the best and fairest medal by just one vote. A new launched
Australian body has been launched to monitor climate change. Less than a week after the axing of the Federally funded Climate Commission, former Chief Commissioner Professor Flannery hasry launched the advisory body with a new name and a new funding model. The Climate Council as it's now called will be funded by public donations. One of the first tasks of Council will be to explain the
latest international report on climate change which is due out latest international report later this week. In the climate change which is due later this week. In the last 100 years there's been later this week. 100 years there's been an
increase in the global average temperatures of 0.8 degrees Celsius and further rises are project bid what is baffling scientists is that for the last 15 years, temperatures have not risen above 1998 levels. The air we breathe is changing, it now holds more warm of the warming gas carbon dioxide than it at any time in human history. And new records of temperature keep being set. Cop crops burned last year in America's hottest month every ever. In China, this summer people were desperate to keep cool in heat nah no-one had experienced. So how much is the planet warming? In this graph, the red area shows computer simulations of the global average temperature. The white line is what's actually been recorded. Temperatures rising recently until 15 years ago, for some reason, they paused,Decade on decade global warming is proceedings as expected. That said within the past 15 years we've seen little warming at the surface and that in itself is enough to tell us that the most extreme projections of warming over the next 20 or 30 years are looking less likely and that's clearly good news.One explanation is that the sun is giving off less heat. Another is that industrial pollution is reflecting the sun's rays. A third idea is that the oceans are warming, scientists have a network of devices that are measuring a rise in water temperatures .The deep ocean has without doubt warmed up since the 19 80s but the ocean is so vast that even a 100th of a degree temperature change is significant in terms of the impact that will have on the atmosphere above it.So there are several theories for why the warming of the planet has paused. The most plausible answer for many scientists does lie in the oceans with all of the different currents. But so farer the evidence from the deep is still pretty sparse, so at this stage no-one can be really sure. One blogger read by thousands every day has long raised questions about the man kind
pause. Andrew montford sense man kind is affecting the climate but says there's oso much the stiepts don't know.If they can't explain it they should say so and people will learn from that that there's a lot about the climate system that scientists don't understand, that's the truth and what's the public needs to know.A major report on climate change is due on Friday, the scientists will try to explain why temperatures have paused, while insisting that global warming in the long-term remains a dangerous threat.Kenya's security forces are still laying siege to a shopping mall in Nairobi where an unknown number of gunmen have killed 62 people. They're still holed up there. Sporadic gunfire and explosions have been heard and thick black smoke is billowing from the centre. 62 people have been killed and another 19 70 have been injured. There were thound of shoppers in the Westgate shopping mall when the gunmen struck, they were from all walks of life andhead many different nationalities.
