of a Lindt Cafe survivor.

we're wealthier than ever
and debt is down so why are Aussies
so financially insecure? Plus, living with terrorists - meet the Australian war reporter
who survived an al-Qaeda kidnapping and witnessed the birth
of Islamic State. Also, mean or motivational? When I sit there and look
at somebody that's overweight no, I find that utterly repulsive
and disgusting. The fitness trainer accused of
fat-shaming answers the questions. And breaking the mould... There is a very short list of us
who are doing it. There is me and Charlize Theron
and Jennifer Laurence and that's maybe it. Oscar hopeful Emily Blunt
talks about tough women, the war on drugs
and her new movie, Sicario. That's all ahead as Weekend Sunrise
begins right now. SONG: # Reach up for the sunrise # Reach up for the sunrise. # Live from Brekky Central,
this is Weekend Sunrise with Edwina Bartholomew
and Andrew O'Keefe.

It's not a need - it's a want! Justin Bieber tickets - two girls have driven ten hours from palm beach in Queensland.It could be a need! It reminds me of an old carten where two gorillas are talking to each other and one says "We all love bananas but for me it's something deeper". I think that's the same here! Now, we don't want to open the floodgates but I think we might be able to help these to out.We don't know for sure. We've sent off emails to the people who do know about these things. If they can stand on one leg for the next three hours maybe we will do something! No, welcome to Sunday Sunrise!Welcome,

Now here's Talitha
with the 7am news. First to breaking news. A woman has been stabbed to death
at a unit block in North Queensland. It happened in Townsville
at around 11:00 last night. The woman was found suffering
serious stab wounds, and pronounced dead at the scene. A man known to the woman
was arrested and taken to hospital for treatment. We'll bring you more information
as we get it. Cricket Australia has delayed the
national team's tour of Bangladesh over concerns it could be targeted
by militant groups. Players were due
to leave fly out tomorrow but the Department
of Foreign Affairs and Trade has warned
of a possible security risk. It's understood D-FAT had reliable
information there was a threat to the safety
of Australian tourists. of terrorism in Bangladesh in recent years and ongoing arrests of people
linked to terror groups. The UN appears to be welcoming
Australia's change of leadership as Foreign Minister Julie Bishop
holds talks in New York. Seven News political correspondent
Tim Lester joins us now. Tim, Ms Bishop has received
a special invitation. Good morning, yes, this is to a

Sunday lunch hosted by the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to discuss climate change. Now, when previous Prime Minister Tony Abbott was due to attend the UN general assembly this weekend, there had been no invitation. Post- the leadership change here in Canberra, an invitation has now been issued to the Foreign Affairs Minister to attend. Many are reading this as part of a that you in relations with the new government - the Turnbull Government. Indeed, Fairfax Media this morning suggests that diplomats, including the US ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power expressing privately a new satisfaction of the prospect of working with the Turnbull Government. As well, Julie Bishop has reaffirmed her commitment to bring back from the Julia Gillard era an intention to join the UN Human Rights Council. This, as Julie Bishop plays host to quite a dinner in New York - among those at the Tribeca, Robert De Niro's restaurant in New York, she hosted Bella Jakubiak and Deborra-Lee Furness and those who had won the charity auction here in Canberra at the Midwinter ball. The meal donated by De Niro raised $35,000, so you can imagine there would be quite a crush to get a similar dinner on the charity auction list in next year's press gallery event here at Parliament House.Very impressive, thanks, Tim.

A controversial deputy mayor
from Sydney is under police investigation for allegedly threatening to kidnap
a Lindt Cafe Siege survivor. Police have been told Salim Mehajer
threatened Bruce Herat when the gym employee asked him
to stop mistreating equipment. It's alleged Mr Mehajer then
followed him to the car park, saying "I'm going to find out where you
live, and have your kids kidnapped". Bruce Herat's son is Joel Herat, a Lindt worker who endured
last year's terrifying siege. Sydney's busiest train station
was evacuated last night after a fire broke out inside. The blaze started in the Hungry
Jack's restaurant just after 6pm. It quickly spread
through the floors above. Around 1,000 travellers were
evacuated from platforms 1 to 15 while firefighters
battled the flames. One of the air con units
blew up or something. Apparently they were having trouble
putting it out - the actual fire. It must have been too severe. After around two hours,
things returned to normal.

Thai police say they're confident
they've arrested the men who planted and exploded a deadly
bomb in Bangkok last month. Authorities believe Adem Karadag
was the man in the yellow shirt who planted the bomb that killed
20 people at the Erawan Shrine. They say another suspect,
Mieraili Yusufu, used a mobile phone
to trigger the bomb. Heavily armed police
conducted a re-enactment with the suspects of the bombing,
which included their getaway. The motive
is still being determined. A crowd of thousands turned out
for a spectacular fireworks display on the Brisbane River as part of the annual Riverfire show
last night. Residents arriving early
in the afternoon to get the best vantage points
along the river. with noisy Globemasters, Super
Hornets and army helicopters taking to the sky. Then, more than 9,000 individual
fireworks were released from river barges, rooftops
and bridges to cap off this year's
Brisbane Festival.

It's always a cracking night in Brisbane. Time to call your mates who have a balcony and say, "Hey, I haven't seen you for a couple of years, how are you doing"?!How about that Julie Bishop dinner, wouldn't you like to be there, Robert De Niro, Bella Jakubiak?! Apparently they discussed Maria Carey's hits, Julie Bishop is fan.But look at James Packer, he has got the dud chair at the end of the table!It's like a fantasy dinner party.Although Robert De Niro looks like an old man there!I don't know if that is him or the minibus driver!They've got a minibus?! Excellent.There you go. So if you say they discussed Maria's hits?Short conversation! No, she was very big in the 90s, thank you!But what's to say about them?Singalong, karaoke - we don't know!Dream Lover?We're going to have some Mariah Cary songs at the break, please? So we can educate these people? Mariah and Bieber!

Simon has all the sport shortly including the grand final
we've been waiting for. The men from the west set up
an AFL season-finale with the Hawks. And Oktoberfest is here -

the perfect snapshot
for Sunday's weather.

Looking for chicken heroes!

here's Simon Reeve. West Coast will meet Hawthorn in the
Grand Final on Saturday at the MCG after a 25-point comeback win
over a gritty North Melbourne side in Perth. as the Kangaroos held the Eagles
goalless in the opening quarter, racing to a shock 20-point lead. But West Coast
clawed their way back, trailing by five points at half-time before finding their mojo
after the main break. COMMENTATOR: To Wellingha-a-a-a-am. Wellingham goals! They kicked five goals to one in
the third quarter to take control. Brad Scott wasn't happy with
a contentious umpiring decision but the Eagles earned the win to reach their first decider
since 2006. Hawthorn are experienced warriors
and we've got to match that. I don't think were going to fluke it The Hawks and Eagles last met
in the Grand Final in 1991.

It will be an all-Queensland
NRL Grand Final after the Cowboys defeated the Storm
32-12 in Melbourne to set up a showdown
with the Broncos. Jonathan Thurston's kick landed
in the arms of Gavin Cooper on the stroke of half-time to give
North Queensland a 16-12 lead. The turning point came
in the 54th minute - Michael Morgan crossed in the corner
for the Cowboys. In back play, Storm winger Marika Koroibete
threw a punch at Kyle Feldt and was sent to the sin bin. Led by the inspirational Thurston,
the Cowboys ran in another two tries to reach the decider
for the first time in a decade. The Dally M favourite is set to miss
the awards night in Sydney tomorrow. This is about getting
the best out of my body and the best preparation I can get. So no doubt over the next day or so
we'll have a chat and go from there. JT showed his class, giving his headgear
to a young Storm fan at half-time with the pair
re-uniting after the game. Wales have stormed back
to stun England 28-25 at the Rugby World Cup.

Prince Harry, William and Kate
were among the 80,000-plus crowd at Twickenham. Former Rabbitohs star Sam Burgess
started at inside centre and his first touch was
a kick that didn't go too far. Wales trailed 19-9 early
in the second half but levelled the scores with a stunning long range try
in the 71st minute. COMMENTATOR: And over on the far
side it is Williams. Hold on!
Kicking back on the inside! They need a bounce.
They get the bounce! What a try!
What a try, Gareth Davies.

Dan Biggar then booted a penalty
goal from the half-way line with six minutes to play and the Welsh hold on
for a famous victory. A new-look Wallabies side
takes on Uruguay tonight. South Africa bounced back from their
shock loss to Japan beating Samoa. A spectator somehow made his way
onto the field and into the thick of the action.

That's not on!Definitely not Japanese, was he?It was hands in the ruck, too.It was a penalty - he should have lost points!

Manchester United has gone top
of the Premier League table. The Red Devils coasted to a 3-0 win
over Sunderland at Old Trafford. Manchester City lost top spot after they slumped to a second
straight defeat smashed 4-1 by Tottenham. COMMENTATOR: It's Christian Eriksen. He has tested Caballero and the follow up is put in
by Harry Kane! Arsenal thrashed Leicester 5-2, ending the Foxes' unbeaten start
to the season. Liverpool eased pressure
on manager Brendan Rodgers with a 3-2 win over Aston Villa. Chelsea fought back to salvage
a 2-all draw with Newcastle. Jason Day is set to miss out
winning the FedEx Cup and a $14 million pay bonus. Day is eight shots back at even par going into the final round
of the Tour Championship. He's faces losing the world number
one ranking to Jordan Spieth, who leads by one shot. Spieth can reclaim top spot
if he wins the event and Day finishes
outside the top five.

Biggar, who plays for Wales, reminds me of that character in Benny Hill, "Ivor Biggun". Now to JT with the weather.It's exciting - because it's Oktoberfest! I turned up at the Munich Brauhaus this morning and they said, hey, we've got an outfit - but I brought my own! This is legitimate from Manuka, lederhosen, and we are going to have a fantastic time today. Let's get to the forecast, first, though. Push

Weekend Sunrise weather, brought
to you by Inner Health For Kids. Have your kids had their
Inner Health today? A high pressure system in the east
will bring fine weather to the majority of the country again
today. An upper trough over northern
New South Wales and Queensland will bring isolated showers
and a possible storm Sydney,
possible shower. Partly cloudy,
Canberra. Melbourne, early fog
then sunny. Adelaide,
sunny. Sunny in Perth
and Darwin.

Well, let me introduce you to the men of Oktoberfest at the Munich Brauhaus. Now, if you're wondering, we are in September, but in Germany, Oktoberfest is predominantly in September. It starts, I think, this year on 19th September and goes through until 4th October. Here in Melbourne, they're going right through until the end of October, every day they've got oompah bands, and pretzels and all of this great stuff. This morning we're going to bring it all to you. What a great breakfast, what a great start to the morning - pretzel and butter! Und butter?! Alright, fair enough! You are not supposed to have them with butter, are you?One assumes there is a fair bit of butter in them. You are looking a million bucks though we think it's a bit predictable and we would like to see you in a dirndl in the next half an hour, please!

Coming up on Weekend Sunrise -
forget the pope-mobile - the Pope's endorsement
has given another little car a popularity jump-start in the US. And you are what you eat. The vegetables that
can make you fat, next.

What does spring mean to you?
(UPBEAT MUSIC) Having friends over for a bite.

Getting stuck into it.

That new entertainment deck. Whatever it means to you,
Masters has everything spring, like Sir Walter turf - 10% off. Honda self-propelled mower - $899. New to Masters. Shella lounge set - just $299. Masters - the best price
on everything spring.

You might be sitting down right now to a healthy bowl of fruit
for breakfast. But did you know some fruits
are better than others if you want to lose weight? There are also some veggies
that are a no-go if you want to drop the kilos. In fact,
they could have the opposite effect. To separate the good
from the not-so-good, we're joined
by nutritionist Susie Burrell. Good morning, Susie.
Let's look at veggies first. What should you avoid if you are
trying to lose some weight?

Well, the key thing to remember is all vegetables are good for us, so it's not eat one potato and gain 5kg, that's not the case.Thank god!Unless they are fried or mashed with lots of butter. But when it comes to the vegies, your potato, sweet potato and corn.So all the good Irish stuff!They are heavy carbohydrates, and I've put those in a heavy carbohydrate group, and they are the ones you have to be mindful of not having huge amounts. But pumpkin, carrot, orange, all your leafy greens and sad vegies, you could eat as much as you want and never put weight on. So one or two potatoes a day max, and watch your portions of sweet potato.But nobody is going to be whacking down that whole set everyday are they? Seriously?I don't know what your habits are, I can only assume! With you, people do, I think, sometimes overdo the portions, particularly of chips or fried potatoes or mashed potato - try not to add the fatty extra butter to it. Maybe some light sour cream or yoghurt if you must. But if you keep it to that one portion per day, no issue at all. But load up the plate of at least two to three cups of these brightly-coloured vegies for dinner.And cauliflower?Yeah, anything like that, and veg vice, remember, they don't have to be boiled and soggy! Cook them with beautiful olive oil, do them in sources. You can flavour them up and make them taste good.And even barbecue, of course.Yeah, barbecue, spray them with the olive oil or brush them with olive oil, even sauces - put a cheese sauce on it because you eat more then.What about fruits?Well, the same situation as the potatoes and sweet potatoes. Bananas and grapes are sugary and easy to overeat. So if you have a serial in the morning with bananas and grapes and berries, you will carb.The green smoothy is massive but I wonder when you are putting a whole banana in there and lots of others fruits is it counter-productive. It is because they add up.But if you are having a big smoothy right before you go for a long job or head to the gym, it shouldn't matter too much?No, but most people tend to not, they sit in the car for an hour and then in the office for more. And it is right, it is all the ingredients together - so if you are juicing use one fruit to multiple vegetables. And these are are the light ones, the berries, packed you will of anti-oxidants, and full of vitamin C.And you can freeze them.Yes, indeed, these are very good for you. She has been reading up this morning! But remember, the message is, there's nothing that's bad, you just have to be mindful there's more carbohydrate rich choices in the sweet potato and potatoes.So miented portions on this sort of stuff.You will lose weight if you do, and two to three cups of the good stuff every lunch and dinner. Thank you, Susie.

Australian Eastern Time. We'll be calling today's winner
later in the show. It's time for the news,
with Talitha. In breaking news - we have pictures just in
of a huge sink hole that's opened up near a beach
on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. It's reported to be the size
of a football field, and has swallowed up vehicles
and caravans at Inskip Point. The site has been evacuated
in case any more land gives way. Lots of yelling and screaming and
then a caravan went over the edge, pretty scary. Very traumatic, especially at
midnight when it first happened. So far there are no reports
of injuries. This is the second sinkhole
to form in the area four years. More now on our breaking news
out of North Queensland. A woman has been stabbed to death
at a unit block in Townsville. It happened in at around 11:00
last night. Paramedics found the woman
suffering serious stab wounds and she was pronounced dead
at the scene. A man has been arrested
and taken to hospital for treatment. Police say he is known to the woman. We'll bring you more details
as they come in. Terror fears have delayed
the Australian cricket team's tour of Bangladesh. The team was due to fly out
tomorrow, but Cricket Australia
has postponed the departure. It follows a warning from the Department
of Foreign Affairs and Trade about a possible security risk. There have been numerous terror
attacks and arrests in Bangladesh in recent years. Travel and security arrangements
will be revised before the team
is allowed to travel. The man who allegedly hit a woman at
the Fremantle-Hawthorn AFL showdown will stay behind bars for now. 24-year-old Cody Yarran is accused of striking the off-duty
police woman in the throat. She says he also threatened
her children, when she asked him to settle down. Yarran was arrested and faced court
yesterday charged with assault. His sister says
he's done nothing wrong. He did not hit her.
He did not do anything. He just pushed her away
simply to get out of the way. Yarran been given a lifetime ban
from Domain Stadium. Pope Francis has celebrated
mass in Philadelphia for the final leg of his US tour. The pontiff has paid tribute
to women in the church, saying their contribution
must be valued. A slight stumble wouldn't stop a man
on a mission. Pope Francis travelled
to Philadelphia and upon arrival, in front
of a small expectant crowd, he did the unexpected - stopping his motorcade for a boy
in a wheelchair to offer comfort and a blessing.

From the airport he headed to the
Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul for mass. His homily included a call
to action. It's a message the city of brotherly
love is taking to heart. Students and other volunteers
at the World Meeting for Families spent the week packing meals
for malnourished children. We all wanted to include
some sort of service element to the World Meeting of Families. To take Pope Francis' message
of love for our brother and sister and turn it into action. After mass, the Pope spent
the afternoon at a local seminary where he was greeted with song. (ALL SING HYMN) At Benjamin Franklin parkway, the crowds gathering
hours ahead of his visit. The Pope will speak here tonight for the star-studded
Festival of families. Conservationists
are celebrating a turning point for the survival
of the Tasmanian Devil. In a defining moment, 20 healthy devils were released
into the wild at a national park in Tasmania's north. They are all vaccinated against
the devil facial tumour disease, which has devastated the species. It's the first time a vaccine
will be tested in the wild. Scientists will monitor the progress
of the devils

Very good news.Fantastic. Were these ones born in captivity, do you know?I can find out for you. I don't know.It's a big thing because that's threatening that species. Very good.

West Coast is through to
their first grand final since 2006, storming home to beat
North Melbourne by 25 points. After trailing at both
quarter and half-time, the Eagles found top gear, kicking seven goals to three
in the second half to book a showdown with Hawthorn
in Saturday's decider at the MCG. A little bit surreal, to be honest. But full credit to the players and how they handled tonight
and big occasion. With a young group
down at quarter-time to respond they way we did,
I'm really proud. The Eagles smashed the Hawks
in Perth a fortnight ago. Johnathan Thurston
has led the Cowboys to their first NRL grand final
in a decade. North Queensland defeated Melbourne
32-12, setting up an all-Queensland decider
against the Broncos. Thurston was at scintillating
best for the Cowboys, He came off
as a precaution late in the match. Just, ahhh, the back
of my shinbone. (LAUGHS) Storm winger Marika Koroibete
was sin-binned for throwing a punch at Kyle Feldt
early in the second half. Wales has staged a massive upset, beating England 28-25
at the Rugby World Cup. Despite a raft of injuries, the Welsh fought back from 10 points
down early in the second half, levelling the scores in the 71st
minute with a sensational long try. Dan Biggar then slotted a penalty
goal from the half-way line with six minutes to play and the Welsh held on
for a brave victory. Prince Harry, William and Kate were quick to congratulate
Wales coach Warren Gatland. Manchester City has surrendered top
spot on the Premier League table after they were hammered 4-1
by Tottenham. Cross-town rivals United
are now on top after cruising to a 3-nil win
over Sunderland. A stunning goal by Ramires helped
Chelsea salvage a 2-all draw with Newcastle. Aussie Sally Fitzgibbons
is through to the semi-finals of the Cascais Women's Pro
in Portugal. Fitzgibbons will face fellow world
title contender Courtney Conlogue for a spot in the final.

And with the lederhosen, here is JT in Melbourne!He is loving it!Ein, zwei, drei, vier!(OOMPAH MUSIC PLAYS).It's on in Melbourne and all around the world! This is one of my favourite months of the year! Let's go to the forecast for Australia. Weekend Sunrise weather, brought
to you by Inner Health For Kids. Have your kids had their
Inner Health today? A high pressure system in the east
will bring fine weather to the majority of the country again
today. An upper trough over northern
New South Wales and Queensland will bring isolated showers
and a possible storm. Brisbane - shower or two. A shower or two expected
most days ahead. Sydney - possible shower. A fine day tomorrow and Tuesday. Canberra - partly cloudy. A mostly fine few days ahead with
just a possible shower on Tuesday. Melbourne - early fog then sunny. A few showers expected

Andrew, you wanted a Dirndl, and that is the name of the outfit that the madchen's wear and this is the lederhosen, the one the Junge wear. This is fantastic, it is huge for Melbourne. It us an called the Munich Brauhaus, and it is on South Port peer -- pier and every day of the week Oktoberfest is happening. Yes, every day of the week we're holding events here at Munich Brauhaus and we have keg tapping and live events and music.Hazel has such a beautiful, rich German accent!I do, I do - every day I'm working on it!Yes, it is more of a southern German accent! So there is a beer tapping and what exactly is that?The keg tapping, so we get it out to the weekend, the big keg tap, we do it in the middle of the restaurant or bar and then it goes everywhere and everybody comes in and fills up their glasses. It's great.And do you have the one 1 litre glasses?We do, we have them at the bars for sure.And Fritz and his band are playing every day as well. We have got some fun stuff for the reverse of the morning. Hazel is clearly from Edinburgh!A little bit south.Mind you, if anyone can understand the festival of Oktoberfest it's the Scottish. They would love a wee keg!

Morning, all.
Time to talk sport now. Eagles great Guy McKenna
and our league expert Josh Massoud are both in Melbourne. Welcome, fellas. First, the scores. After a slow start West Coast,
led by Josh Kennedy, over-powered the Kangaroos to book
their tickets for Melbourne. And the frequent flyers of the NRL,
the Cowboys, make it an all-Queensland affair
next week with a brilliant win over the Storm. Guy you predicted this grand final
a long way back, but the Eagles fans had some nervous
moments early.

Yeah, it almost looked like a bit of stage fright, almost, and certainly that was due to a bit of that and a bit of the North Melbourne pressure. They were fantastic, got their match-ups really well, sat on a few players, kept people quiet for a moment there but once that intensity dropped off, they were able to get their inside running game going. Josh Kennedy was fantastic last night. I loved watching him.You could argue he was single-handedly keeping the boys in the game to half-time and obviously after half-time, as I said, that intensity dropped off and West Coast runners started to come in. All of a sudden West Coast got their tails up and ran all over North Melbourne in the end.And thankfully for Perth, we got one team through, as well, or it would have been a terrible weekend without! So where to for the Eagles now? Obviously they are on the plane to Melbourne Tuesday or Wednesday or whatever, but after the Hawks' demolition of Freo, how do you see this grand final playing out?Well, my heart says West Coast, mate. My head probably leans towards Hawthorn just because obviously they play at the MCG a lot and for West Coast this will be their second trip to the MCG. That won't bother the players, of course, they will just be excited about playing in a grand final. But probably the home ground advantage lends towards Hawthorn.It is going to be a cracking game for sure. Josh, this was no easy assignment for JT and the Cowboys facing the Storm at home but they were outstanding last night?They were brilliant and no doubt the Cash Cow will be cockahoop at this. It didn't start well, Kangaroo Kangaroo Kangaroo crossed for the Melbourne Storm and they were up 6-0 early. But Johnathan Thurston spotted a big weakness in the Melbourne Storm defence and that was on their right hand side. They consistently peppered them during the first half and they got to the lead at half-time, a crucial try to the buzzer. Things were very equal in the second half but the game really turned on a sin-binning to Storm winger. Now, that wasn't a punch! But ten minutes in the sin-bin and the game was over after that. The Cowboys putting the Storm to the sword, very uncharacteristic for a Melbourne side to lose by 20 points on home soil. A convincing win. But the interesting one coming out of this is Johnathan Thurston and whether or not he will fly to Sydney for the Dally Ms. He is tipped to win a record fourth medal on the night but all that flying, it's huge and another unnecessary trip to Sydney - they probably don't need it.And a fantastic game from Matt Scott last night. He is a trooper?He is an absolute war horse and when you combine him in the front row with the other two there, that's a real three punch and it will be very difficult for them to contain the Cowboys - who definitely have the advantage in the weight stakes next week against the Broncos.We will go back to you, mate. 1991, I was there watching you play the last time Hawthorn and the Eagles met. That was at Waverley of course. A big experience for you. What would be your advice to the young fellas coming across from West Coast.I think Adam Simpson knocked the nail on the head it shall he said enjoy the week, speak to the media, speak to your family, get the tickets organised, enjoy the week and then embrace the game. It's going to be fantastic. As I said, my heart leans to West Coast, and Hawthorn with my head. But you never know - it is a big day, a big stage and if those young West Coast boys get their tails up, who knows?Indeed. Now, if my son steps out of line this week, feel free to put him back in his place!Just a bit of realignment!Thanks very much, guys, that's fantastic. And AFL Game Day will be
coming up straight after the show. guys, that's fantastic. What's your son doing?

son doing?He is down in Melbourne for a week, so they have to look after him!And you leave him your shirt!They shirts!It is all the fashion down at the Gold Coast. Ahead, the surprising figures
showing Aussies are wealthier than ever. So why aren't we more confident? Plus, the deputy mayor
under investigation over alleged threats
to a Lindt siege hostage. The details soon. But next, trolling the trolls. A star's perfect response to a less-
than-flattering paparazzi shot.

Time to take a look back at some of the unusual stories
making headlines this week in the segment we like to call.. Say What?! First up this morning -
Pope Francis's visit to the US might be creating a lot
of buzz about immigration, income equality
and the environment. But nothing's getting
as much media attention as his choice of transportation. His visit has turned in to a real
blessing for this little car.

REPORTER: I love the Fiat... REPORTER 2: Driving in that Fiat... REPORTER 3: The little Fiat... Do you own stock in Fiat?
If not, buy it. And more about that Fiat... No fancy limousine, that is a Fiat.

fashion down at the Gold Coast.
That is an Fiart! That is the American for Fiat. I read a love letter to the Fiat in Vogue.What if you turned up in just a regular, old Roman Bambino?! Breaking down all the time!What about a foldback roof? That would be great. Better than the Jeep, I didn't love the Jeep.Although they are part of the Chrysler group, you see, because he has got a group deal with Jeep and Fiat.It just didn't have that kind of Papal... You know... Something about it!It was like a Papal satisfactoriry! Push -- safari.

Still in the US,
and fans of actress Juliette Lewis have come up with the perfect
response to a paparazzi shot of her with her hands down her pants. After posting the pic on Instagram, her fans quickly followed suit and
came up with a funny take on it all. She took it in her... strides! Hi, beautiful people. I just wanna give you love to all the people who are enjoying
my memes. What should be a humiliating moment of me picking my underwear out of my
crotch that the paparrazi stalked is now fun! For all of us!

I love she owned it!She was mad at first, but she owned it.And that awkward situation is horrible.The camel toe, it's known as! (LAUGHTER) Sorry!Where did that sweet potato get to?!

Tensions between
President Barack Obama were put on hold this week when the two leaders came
to an agreement on cyber theft. The two biggest perpetrators
of economic espionage have agreed to stop. The US has previously accused China
of massive cyber theft, saying they account
for 80% of cases. Which could be why Obama sounds
a little sceptical. What I've said to President Xi and what I say to the American
people is, the question now is - are words followed by actions?

Them's fighting words in terms of diplomacy.And as he was sating Xi Jinping was looking over his shoulder and checking his email! Just cheating!It would have been a good gag!And we don't know what they said but one more Say What? Is this picture of Julie Bishop with Robert De Niro, Bella Jakubiak, Deborra-Lee Furness and Carey krar. -- Mariah Carey. And we've looked up her hits, after Andrew disked her!I didn't diss her!And these tweets came up - she has plenty of hits, thank you.I'm happy to believe that she has an important part in music.There is a list here that goes on for pages!But after all of that, are James and Mariah - are they an item?They're still together, yeah.Love takes time but one sweet day they will belong together.Very good.Very good, Ed, well done.Sometimes a hero does come along!She was actually singing that at the table, actually!It is a Fantasy, isn't it?

Up next, the news, sport and weather plus a controversial deputy mayor
embroiled in a new scandal. The details soon. Also ahead,
meet the Aussie war reporter who survived being kidnapped
and living with terrorists in Iraq. His views may surprise you. And blurring the line
between the reality and fantasy. In reality we've spent a trillion
dollars on war on drugs and nothing's worked. Zero has worked. The stars of Sicario get real
about the war on drugs.

# If I was a flower growing
wild and free # All I'd want is you to be
my sweet honey bee # And if I was a tree
growing tall and green # All I'd want is you to shade me
and be my leaves

# All I want is you
Will you be my bride? # Take me by the hand
and stand by my side # All I want is you
Will you stay with me? # Hold me in your arms
and sway me like the sea. # # Hold me in your arms

That's the hard stuff.The good stuff!

More now on our breaking news
out of Queensland. A large sinkhole has swallowed up
caravans and vehicles at Inskip Point
on the Sunshine Coast. as the ground shook
and gave way beneath them. People nearby rushed to help. I was fishing just on the beach, and, ah, I looked over
and some dude's van was sinking.

And they were screaming and I ran
across and chucked my rod down. The site has been evacuated
in case more land gives way. No-one has been injured
and everyone is accounted for. As Australia tries to tackle
a domestic violence crisis, another woman has been killed,
in North Queensland. She was found at a unit
in Townsville last night, suffering serious stab wounds. She was pronounced dead
at the scene. Police arrested a man,
who they say was known to the woman. He's being treated in hospital.
Investigations are continuing. The Australian cricket team's
departure for the tour of Bangladesh has been delayed due to concerns
about safety and security. Cricket Australia says recent advice
from government sources Players were due to fly out
tomorrow morning but will now wait for further
security advice before confirming new travel plans. There have been a number of terror
attacks and arrests in Bangladesh in recent years.

Julie Bishop has received
a special invitation from the UN as she holds high level talks
in New York. Seven News political correspondent
Tim Lester joins us now. Tim, the UN appears to be
warming to the Turnbull government. Hi, yes, and the telltale sign for many is

many is the invitation you mentioned that Julie

mentioned that Julie Bishop has received from Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary-General, to attend a Sunday lunch. The topic is climate change. Now, when former Prime Minister Tony Abbott was due to go to the UN general assembly, there was no invitation - it has come since the leadership coup here in Canberra. So many are reading it as a sign of a thaw between the UN and Australia. There are other signs, as well, Australia reaffirm willing its intention to seek a post on the UN Human Rights Council in coming years is one of them, and others, generally diplomats, even the US Ambassador to the UN apparently discussing Australia in more favourable terms since the leadership change. This, as Julie Bishop plays host to quite a dinner in New York - it was at the Tribeca restaurant, the famous restaurant of actor Robert De Niro, and it was given away as a prize for a couple here at the press gallery ball in Canberra back midwinter and raised $35,000. Among Julie Bishop's guests, James Packer and his new partner, Mariah Carey were there and Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness. And it raises the question where will the foreign Minister dine next year for her charity and who will be eating with her?! Thanks, Tim.

American rapper Chris Brown will reportedly be banned
from touring Australia because of his violent past. News Corp reports Australian
government officials have formally notified the rapper they intend to refuse
his visa application. He now has 28 days to explain why he
should be allowed into the country. Brown bashed then-girlfriend Rihanna
in 2009, biting her ear
and threatening to kill her. He has already been banned
from entering Britain and Canada, since his assault conviction. Tickets for his tour are due
to go on sale tomorrow. Fire has ripped through a unit
above a shop in western Sydney. The blaze broke out on the second
storey of the building in Lidcombe at around 3:00 this morning. It was first spotted
by police passing by, who quickly notified firefighters. The flames were contained and extinguished without spreading
to neighbouring properties. Fortunately there was no-one inside
when the fire broke out. Train services are back to normal through Sydney's Central Station
this morning after a blaze triggered
an evacuation last night. The fire broke out in the ventilation system
of a Hungry Jack's restaurant, spreading to other floors. Platforms were shut down and more than 1,000 people
told to leave. The cause is under investigation. Thousands of people have turned out to watch the demolition
of a Scottish power station. The twin chimney stacks at the
former Cockenzie Power Station were brought down simultaneously
in a dramatic detonation. Each stack had 150 holes
drilled into it, which were then filled
with explosives. The power station was closed
two years ago after it failed to meet new
environmentally friendly standards.

Just having another look at that again - it's an incredible shot. I love a good demolition shotGreat if you are an amateur film-maker. Wouldn't it?I don't think there's much else going on in Cockenzie on a Saturday!Oktoberfest, of course! The Oktoberfest fraulein from Glasgow!The fireworks guy, he must be behind it.I like him!

And now with sport,
here's Simon Reeve. West Coast overcame a slow start to
defeat North Melbourne by 25 points and book a showdown with Hawthorn
in Saturday's AFL Grand Final. A big upset looked a possibility as the Kangaroos jumped
to a shock 20-point lead, holding the Eagles goalless
in the opening term. But West Coast kicked 10 of the next
12 goals after quarter time, to advance to their first grand
final since 2006. COMMENTATOR: To Wellingha-a-a-a-am. Wellingham goals! Favouritism in grand finals
and finals, I think it's overplayed. I mean, you gotta look at form
and how the club's gone about it in the last eight weeks, I suppose. And Hawthorn are experienced
warriors. Brad Scott refused to blame several
contentious umpiring decisions for the defeat. The Hawks and Eagles last met
in the Grand Final in 1991. The Cowboys and Broncos will clash
in all-Queensland NRL Grand Final after the Cowboys defeated the Storm
32-12 in Melbourne. Johnathan Thurston lifted
North Queensland The Storm's hopes suffered a blow
in the 54th minute when Michael Morgan crossed
in the corner and Marika Koroibete was sin-binned
for punching Kyle Feldt in back play. Led by the inspirational Thurston,
the Cowboys ran in another two tries to reach the decider
for the first time in a decade. The Dally M favourite is set to miss
the awards night in Sydney tomorrow, with a gruelling flight schedule
a major factor. It takes a lot out of ya. You know when you play away,
the flights very hard on the body. Ahh, takes you an extra day or so
extra probably couple of days, three days to recover
from the flight. JT showed his class,
giving his headgear to a young Storm fan at half-time with the pair re-uniting
after the game. A huge result in
the Wallabies Rugby World Cup group with Wales fighting back
to upset England 28-25. but levelled the scores COMMENTATOR: And over on the far
side it is Williams. Hold on!
Kicking back on the inside! They need a bounce.
They get the bounce! What a try!
What a try, Gareth Davies. Dan Biggar then booted a penalty
goal from the half-way line with six minutes to play and the Welsh hold on
for a famous victory. Prince Harry, William and Kate were quick to congratulate coach
Warren Gatland. A new-look Wallabies side takes
on Uruguay tonight. South Africa bounced back
from their shock loss to Japan, beating Samoa 46-6. A spectator somehow made his way
onto the field and into the thick of the action.

Manchester United has gone top
of the Premier League table. The Red Devils coasted to a 3-0
win over Sunderland at Old Trafford. Manchester City lost top spot after they slumped
to a second straight defeat, smashed 4-1 by Tottenham. COMMENTATOR: It's Christian Eriksen. He has tested Caballero and the follow up is put in
by Harry Kane! Arsenal thrashed Leicester 5-2, ending the Foxes' unbeaten start
to the season. Liverpool eased pressure
on manager Brendan Rodgers with a 3-2 win over Aston Villa. Chelsea fought back to salvage
a 2-all draw with Newcastle. Jason Day is in real danger of
losing the world number one ranking after just one week. Day is eight shots behind leader
Jordan Spieth going into the final round of
the season-ending tour championship. Spieth leads by a shot
and if he wins the event and Day finishes
outside the top five, he'll reclaim top spot
in the rankings.

You stuffed your whole invitation prospects for the next Julie dinner.They're going but now Eddie has encouraged me to go through the Mariah Carey back catalogue.I'm not inviting you to come with me. Well, having looked at her hits, I could have become her biggest advocate but now you've uninvited me, it's not on and you won't get to sing with her at the next dinner!Well, now we're out of time, and it's time to go to JT for the weather!You know, Mariah Carey would look perfect in the dirndl or fokt fest. Guten Tag from the Munich Brauhaus in Melbourne. This is a ceremonial tapping of the keg. This begins the whole if he is activities. This started a couple of weeks ago and they will run all the way through until the end of October and I have been bestowed the honour of tapping the keg this morning.Das ist gut!I know it's exciting! Let's get the weather first.

Weekend Sunrise weather, brought
to you by Inner Health For Kids. Have your kids had their
Inner Health today?

And here at the Munich Brauhaus we are going to make it rain! Make it rain beer! Shall we have a countdown?Five, four, three, two, one... Prost!Danke schoen, JT!A beer shower!I've never seen a man enjoy Oktoberfest more!A little felt, a little leather, nothing makes him happier!

New South Wales Police
are investigating an incident involving the deputy mayor
of Sydney's Auburn council. Salim Mehajer is accused of threatened the father of Lindt
Cafe siege survivor Joel Herat outside a fitness club. It's claimed he said he would
find out where he lived

broke this story yesterday. Morning, Rob. This incident took place
11 days ago. What happened and why has it taken
so long to surface?

Good morning, gang. This is a live investigation at the moment, so it's not necessarily something the police are crowing from the rooftops nor the Herats nor meng Mehajer. The allegation is Salim Mehajer approached Mr Herat at this Sydney, was told to stop misusing the weights and equipment after which he was allegedly threatened by Mr Mehajer and the seriousness of the allegation really is 20 minutes later out on the car park where Mr Herat told police Mr Mehajer approached him saying he was going to take it further, find out where he lives and kidnap his children. There was absolutely no indication whatsoever that Mr Mehajer necessarily knew exactly who Bruce Herat's child was but Joel Herat, and I've spoken to him a number of times before, a very respectful and nice young man who was caught up in the Lindt hostage siege.Indeed, police are keeping tight-lipped at the moment but Mr Mehajer is known to us all here who follow the news for antics around his wedding and also being a real big-wig in the area.Very much. He is celebrated in the area and was re-elected as the deputy mayor only a couple of days ago as well and ironically enough for Mr Mehajer, despite all the negative press he received since then, it was he on brought himself to the attention of media so flamboyantly, blocking off streets for his wedding at the time. And since then attention has been turned to him and his business activities and there is nothing to suggest he has done anything illegal but his activities as a property manager but also deputy mayor have called into question whether somebody has a conflict of from in that role and it has also provoked NSW Premier Mike Baird who suggest that perhaps reforms are needed in that area. So he is certainly no stranger to the spotlight, doesn't mind the spotlight, although I would suggest he doesn't particularly enjoy the attention he is getting at the moment, Andrew.Yes, well, the NSW government - roll back certain safkdz about councillors voting on property developments that would directly enrich themselves, so that's what happens! Thanks, Rob. Thanks, Rob, no doubt more details to come on Auburn's deputy mayor.I hope they don't turn up a toy pistol like was used in that...

According to CommSec,
Australians have never been richer. The total wealth
of the average Australian household is at an all-time high thanks
to rising home prices and shares. Even companies and super-funds
have cash-holdings well above long-term averages. So why aren't Australians feeling
more affluent and optimistic? Michael Pascoe from Fairfax
Media's BusinessDay joins us now. Morning, Michael. Why are Australian's
still nervous about money?

There is a combination of factors there. Part of it has been political and we've already seen a lift in the consumer confidence surveys, because of the change of government, effectively. We went through a long period there of being told that the country had a terrible debt and deficit problem and we were all going to go to hell and I think that message sort of sunk in at some stage. Lots of uncertainty. Last year's budget didn't help. People at the bottom of the socio-economic pile certainly weren't made more confident by that. So there are a combination of factors. Unemployment remains sticky in the low sixes - and that obviously affects people.There is a disparity between who is earning more and how much more they're earning. I mean, the figures tell us that the average income of the richest 20% rose by 7% whereas the average person only got an income rise of 1.3 per cent and similar things reflected in disposable income, Michael?Exactly, and that growing gap - a lot of it is related to who owns land and who doesn't own land. If you take a longer look at the stats, there are another lot of figures out showing the bottom 20% of Australia had its disposable income grow by 15% in the past decade, which is really good. But, the top 20%, their income grew by 28% and so poverty is a relative thing. It is not an absolute. It is, "Oh, I'm better off but the rest of the country is a lot better off, therefore I'm poor". That is the reality of it. The other things we have become spoilt. It is so long since we had a recession - you know, who remembers 1991? So if things aren't going really well, people think things are bad. There's this terrible idea we need to get back to the way it was just before the GFC - that was good, things were fine, but no, interest rates were being pushed up because the economy couldn't handle that sort of growth.Do you think the new optimism shown by the Turnbull Government will turn things around in some ways and improve that consumer confidence, Michael?Look, you've certainly got to hope so. More important than consumer confidence is business confidence because the same study shows that business is sitting on a whole pile of cash. There is that lack of confidence to invest in the Australian economy, when it actually has so much going for it and it has been driving the Reserve Bank mad for the past couple of years, you know, why won't those animal spirits stir and invest? And it looks like we are getting closer to the point where they just might do it. The companies' chief financial officers have cut about all the costs they can cut to make bonus and it's getting to the stage where they're going to have to start investing to get up there. And there are some green shoots there and good signs of companies beginning to put their toe in the water. That investment leads to better employment growth and that should, again, reinforce the positive confidence. The international scene is still, you know - a lot of scary headlines about the rest of the world. Of course, we do scary headlines really well.Don't we just.You can blame the media for that!It's your fault!Yes, I take full responsibility!

Ahead on Weekend Sunrise - meet the
man who went from being homeless But next - is this the family
of the future? The single mums sharing bills,
rent and raising kids.

As rental prices rise, harder to find for many Australians, especially
if you're a single parent. Which is why mums like
Min Carroll and Bobbi Bamford from Sydney's Northern Beaches have decided to pool their finances
and their brood of children and move in together. It's a growing trend
among single parents. They're choosing to create a new,
extended family, instead of shouldering
the financial burdens alone. We're joined by the founder
of Singlemum.com.au, Barbara Bryan. Good morning. Your website facilitates these kinds

How common is it for single parents
to seek shared accommodation with other single parents?

Well, a couple of years ago you wouldn't really have seen people asking for shared premises but I think it's a sign of the financial times that people are really finding pressure to find other solutions when finances are tight. Absolutely.What are the positives to this, that you would see?Oh, look, I think that there are several. Obviously, it is the financial pressures that motivate people to go ahead and advertise to share with other parents, but when you are a single parent, you're quite isolated, often you don't have any support, and so when two single parents live together, they can support each other with babyditing, they can cook for each other, clean for each other.Duck down to the shops without having to take vrn?Exactly, it makes a huge difference to quality of life. Company, as well, I suppose. And you would really want to make sure that the person you are sharing with shares the same sort of values in life and approach to raising children, for example, wouldn't you?Absolutely. I mean, as everybody knows, there's a thousand different parenting styles. So, for example, when it comes to discipline, I think you would have to be close to the same page there, if you were disciplining each other's children, or just trying to live with each other's children.Do we see this trend in other things, as well, in terms of sharing maybe even car pooling and that sort of thing. I know on your website there are social forums where single parents can go on and discuss issues they have?I think so and it's a smart way to go, pooling your resources is always a great financial decision. But as I said, with single parents they really are quite isolated otherwise so it really takes a single parent to understand what another single parent is going through and I think, yeah, this is definitely a trend and a positive one.You had been saying, Andrew, that you had friends who had actual families who did it.Yeah, the people we knew weren't actually single parents, I mean they were double parent families and there was an a row of about three of them who decided to pool everything, tear down terraces and knock down the fence insist between and share the grocery bills. It was essentially a commune.Hand-down clothes, I guess.Yeah, all that jazz. Fantastic. When you group together you save money and get supportive friends.So is this open to single dads as well?Oh, absolutely, we have a lot of dads that utilise the website, as well.A great support network. Thank you so much for coming in bash are a.Thank you for having me.

Up next - the news, sport
and weather. Then changing perceptions. There is a short list of us. There is me and Charlize Theron
and Jennifer Lawrence and that's maybe it. Emily Blunt talks about women
getting tough and her new movie, Sicario. And the Cash Cow has $10,000
to give away. We could be calling you

We don't know yet whether we can give you tickets but thank you for coming down.We put a call through to ask for Bieber tickets and I don't know if it was misinterpreted but we got Bircher!The world's most complicated breakfast and I was trying to get it sorted during the ad break, so let me sort myself out.Oh, there's some great lickable stuff on that lid!

It's time for the news,
with Talitha. More now on our breaking news
out of Queensland. A national park on the Sunshine
Coast is closed this morning after a huge sinkhole opened up
in the middle of the night. A caravan, four-wheel drive, tent,
and camper trailer were all swallowed up
as their occupants fled. The sinkhole
is about a hundred metres across. We woke up to some trees
going crash, bang and cars and caravans
sinking into a hole. Literally within three or four
seconds. Queensland National Park authorities
will assess the site today to work out how to retrieve
the vehicles. A woman has been stabbed to death
at a unit block in North Queensland. It happened in Townsville
at around 11:00 last night. The woman was found suffering
serious stab wounds, and pronounced dead at the scene. A man known
to the woman was arrested, and taken to hospital for treatment. We'll bring you more information Cricket Australia has delayed the
national team's tour of Bangladesh over concerns it could be targeted
by militant groups. Players were due to fly out
tomorrow but the Department
of Foreign Affairs and Trade has warned
of a possible security risk. It's understood D-FAT
had reliable information there was a threat to the safety
of Australian tourists. There have been numerous acts of
terrorism in Bangladesh in recent years and ongoing arrests of people
linked to terror groups. Thai police say they're confident
they've arrested the men who planted and exploded a deadly
bomb in Bangkok last month. Authorities believe Adem Karadag who planted the bomb that
killed 20 people at a shrine. They say another suspect used
a mobile phone to trigger the bomb. Heavily armed police conducted
a re-enactment with the suspects of the bombing,
which included their getaway. The motive is still being
determined. West Coast stormed home to beat
North Melbourne by 25 points reaching their first grand final
since 2006. After trailing at both quarter
and half-time, the Eagles found top gear,
kicking 7 goals to 3 in the second half to book
a showdown with Hawthorn in Saturday's decider at the MCG, where they've only played
once this year. If you wanna win a grand final
you gotta win at the 'G. We'd love to play more games there,
it just doesn't happen. The Eagles smashed the Hawks A sublime performance
by Johnathan Thurston has lifted the Cowboys into their
first NRL Grand Final in a decade. North Queensland defeated Melbourne
32-12, setting up an all-Queensland decider
against the Broncos. Thurston was at scintillating best
for the Cowboys, setting up four
of North Queensland's six tries. He came off as a precaution
late in the match. Just, ahhh, the back
of my shinbone.

On aI'm not sure if he meant he broke it or what! But he laughed about it.

Storm winger Marika Koroibete
was sin-binned for throwing a punch at Kyle Feldt
early in the second half. Wales has staged a massive upset, beating England 28-25
at the Rugby World Cup. Despite a raft of injuries, the Welsh fought back from 10 points
down early in the second half, levelling the scores in the 71st
minute with a sensational long try. Dan Biggar then slotted a penalty
goal from the half-way line with six minutes to play and the Welsh held on
for a brave victory. Prince Harry, William and Kate were quick to congratulate
Wales coach Warren Gatland. Manchester City has surrendered top
spot on the premier league table after they were hammered 4-1
by Tottenham. Cross town rivals United
are now on top after cruising to a 3-0 win
over Sunderland. A stunning goal by Ramires helped
Chelsea salvage a 2-2 draw with Newcastle.

Still ahead - a fitness instructor
accused of fat-shaming after an online rant goes viral. Plus, the Aussie journalist taken
into the confidence of terrorists and he lived to tell the tale. Michael Ware joins us live. But next, the Hollywood
stars putting the spotlight on the war on drugs. I was naive about how massive
the problem was. The cast of Sicario,
after the break.

It's been 100 years since the US
and Britain declared a war on drugs. In that time millions have died
and the problem is as bad as ever. Nowhere is it worse than Mexico
where cartels rule with loaded guns. A new Oscar-tipped movie out
this week explores the moral boundaries
between fighting the war on drugs and exacerbating it. Katherine Tulich from
the Hollywood Foreign Press sat down with the stars of Sicario. MAN: State department
is pulling an agent that specialises in responding
to escalated cartel activity.

WOMAN: This is not my department.

FBI! Emily Blunt is thrown
in the deep end in Sicario - a tough-as-nails action movie set on the border between
the United States and Mexico. But she's more than capable
of handling herself. They used me as bait. Freeze. People keep saying, "Oh, man,
you kick some butt in this." I'm like, "I think
I get my butt kicked "by, like, every guy in the movie." Did you want to head more
into these sort of things or are you just...?
Not really. People ask me that because they base it
on Edge of Tomorrow and this one. But I think it's because in this roles. There is a short list of us
who are doing it. It's, like, me and Charlize
and Jennifer Lawrence and that's maybe it. It's a rare thing
to see female protagonist in this very masculine world so I'm happy to contribute
to the tides changing, hopefully. Emily is joined by Josh Brolin, who's gone from trouble
on the world's highest peak to cracking Mexico's cartels. He's a guy who is addicted
to solving problems. He likes problems. He has a job that he has to do
and that's get people to react. When in reality we have spent a
trillion dollars on the war on drugs but nothing's worked. Zero has worked. So do you think the end
justifies the means? There is no end. So you can't really say that,
you know? From a dramatic point of view you have three or four
very fallible human beings

She's doing it by the book,
he's saying there is no book. You want to be a part of this? Will we get an opportunity at
the man responsible for today? Men who are really responsible
for today. The deeper Emily's character, Kate,
digs, the more complex the situation gets. She, I think, is the moral compass
of the film. She represents morality
in an amoral world and there's quite a bright line
between right and wrong for her. And you see that line get blurred. You're not American. No. Who do you work for now? I go where I'm sent. Benicio del Toro plays
the lawyer-turned-hitman whose family falls victim
to the war on drugs. But off-set there was still time
for some fun and games. You need to ask him
about his pool parties he had every weekend
when we were shooting. JIMMY: Oh, really?
Yeah. Good. let me take some notes. Why? What happened at these things? Ah, it was a pool party where
it was specifically worded as that to a group email
including Benicio del Toro who turned up
with NO swimming shorts and just went in
in his very thin cotton boxers. (LAUGHS) And we were like,
"Hmm, it's a pool party, "that's strange that you
wouldn't bring some trunks." And the pool was so cold... That when he got out, as he got out
he said, "Nobody look, man." And we were all like this. I saw Emily saying that thing. I thought she was very kind
to say the water was cold. I realised just never talk
about a man's penis in public. Pool parties aside, in the immigration debate. I don't think people
like to admit it. It's right next door.
they're our neighbour. And yet we hear about ISIS every day and yet more Americans have been
killed from the war on drugs and we never talk about it. So it's just astonishing to me and I
hope this film sheds light on that. I'm not a soldier.
This is not what I do. Got to be careful
around these people. CIA is not supposed to work
this side of the fence.

As Australian fighter jets
continue to bomb Syria and Iraq, questions about how to defeat the
terrorist group Islamic State remain unanswered. But we're about to meet one man
who might have a solution. He was there when IS
was first created. Australian Michael Ware
is the only war correspondent to have ever survived being
kidnapped by al-Qaeda in Iraq. He also spent years embedded
with Iraqi jihadis and he's documented it all
in a new movie titled Only the Dead. We all have dark places. I know I found mine. A place inside me
I never knew I had. most-feared terrorist would choose me to be his messenger. REPORTER: (ON TV) This Western
journalist used horrifying video sent to him by
an Islamic insurgent group in Iraq. To know who those men were, to understand
why they were fighting, I began crossing to the other side. And Michael joins us from Brisbane.
Good morning. It's an incredible story
you have to tell.

We do spend a lot of time demonising the people involved in these insurgencies and wars, and rightly, a lot of them are horrific but we don't really try too and understand what's motivating them, and that's what your film is about, isn't it?Well, it is in many ways. Let's not forget that this is a real story. It is from footage I filmed over the seven long years I was in Iraq on a small, baby, handycam and it was a story about arriving in the midst of the worst war in Iraq as a young, relatively green Australian journalist and there, as you say, to witness the birth of the Islamic State. And when the man who created that reached out to me and sent me a videotape, that set me off on a journey through the most hellish parts of the war - both with the insurgents and with the Americans in some of the most horrific battles, like the battle of Fallujah and the battle of Ramadi. So this film may be the most challenging, unflinching film you will ever see in the cinema, but I would like to believe it's a challenge people should take.One of the challenges you faced, Michael, is something you discuss in this film - crossing that line into being a participant or being a journalist. And there were some moments where you stood back and filmed, instead of getting involved. Tell us how tough those decisions were and perhaps a situation where that came up?Well, clearly, you know, as a journalist we're meant to be there to observe and record and not to impact on events around you. But particularly in a war, you know, as a journalist you are still a human being. But several times I had to make tough choices - particularly on one occasion, where some American soldiers I was with had shot an Iraqi and certain events took place in a courtyard that you will see in the film. But that's what this film is really about - this film looks at the light and the dark, the good and the bad, that exists inside all of us. What Joseph Conrad wrote in The Heart Of Darkness and what Francis Ford Coppola talks about in Apocalypse Now.And you yourself came from moments of being beheaded live on camera. Can you tell us how you survived?I was actually grabbed from my car by what we now call the Islamic State and I was filming from the back seat between the two headrests at the time. They dragged me from the car and ripped the camera, which is still recording, out of my hands and it didn't take long before they dragged me behind a building where they'd quickly slung one of the execution banners and there lined up were the men who were going to stand there as I was beheaded, with the man with the knife standing beside me. And they were going to film it all with my own camera. Now, in the end, at just the last minute, I was rescued - not by our guys, but by Iraqi insurgents who had been my friends for years, and who hated these Islamic State guys. And they, of course...And it's all in the film. All in the film.And the insurgents you were embedded with at a time when lots of journalists were in the country, but they went with the Americans and you went to the other side. Let's look at a scene in the movie where that happens.I wasn't just watching - they began taking me to secret meetings in the dead of night. That's my breathing. As I am doing the filming. It was frightening. I surrendered myself to these guerillas, men the Americans were hunting and I had found - not knowing if they were friends or if they were going to kill me.So many moments there where I imagine you thought your life was in danger there, Michael. How did you know who to trust? Well, you don't, really. I mean, you always constantly have to watch your back because I spent the war living in amongst the Iraqis. I was in the worst battles with the Americans. According to the US military, I'm the first citizen in the history of the United States to nominate a soldier for the Medal of Honor. So I was with the Americans, but also to know who to trust in the Iraqi society and out there on the other side was almost impossible. It was just about personal connections and it was about making one friend after another - and often hoping for the best.Well, Michael, it's an incredible story that you have to tell, captured so compellingly, and we're really - if people are interested in this they should get along and see this film. It raises all sorts of questions that we don't really have time to cover this morning, but what is our role as the media, for example, in promoting an organisation that thrives off coverage, you know? That's a big question in itself. But these sorts of questions hopefully you can make your own minds up about when you see Michael's documentary, Only The Dead. It

It will be screened
around the country from October 20. Head to our website

homeless to helping people who are.

It's news time, here's Talitha. A sinkhole the size of a football
field has opened up on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, swallowing up part of a campsite. It happened in the middle
of the night at Inskip Point, near Rainbow Beach. The ground gave way beneath
a caravan, a four-wheel drive, a tent and a trailer. Lots of yelling and screaming and
then a caravan went over the edge, pretty scary. Very traumatic, especially at
midnight when it first happened. I looked over
and some dude's van was sinking. And they were screaming and I ran
across and chucked my rod down. National Parks officials have closed
off the area as they try figure out
a plan of action. A woman has been stabbed to death
at a unit block in Townsville. It happened at around 11:00
last night. Paramedics found the woman
suffering serious stab wounds and she was pronounced dead
at the scene. A man has been arrested
and taken to hospital for treatment. Police say he was known
to the woman, and their investigation are ongoing. The UN appears to be warming
to the Turnbull government as Julie Bishop holds talks
in New York. Seven News political correspondent
Tim Lester joins us now. Tim, the Foreign Minister has
received a special invitation.

The occasion is Sunday lunch the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon. The topic is climate change. The event has been organised for a while, but back when Tony Abbott was Prime Minister, and due to be in New York, he received no invitation. Apparently, since the leadership change here, the UN has seen fit to invite Julie Bishop, our Foreign Affairs Minister. Some are reading that as a thaw in relations between the government in Canberra and the UN. There are a few other signs, including Australia moving back into engagement on the United Nations Human Rights Council and looking for a role there. So, signs positive in that regard. This, as the Foreign Affairs Minister hosts quite the dinner in New York - among her guests at the Tribeca restaurant were Deborra-Lee Furness and Hugh Jackman and also Mariah Carey and James Packer. What was the occasion? Well, it was a charity event organised here in Canberra back at the Midwinter Ball, it raised $35,000 for seats at the table. Julie Bishop hosting the occasion - and many are now asking, where will she go next year and who will be at her table? Because once you raise that much in a charity event at the Midwinter Ball, you are expected to stump up again next year! Absolutely! Thank you, Tim.

Terror fears have delayed the Australian cricket team's tour
of Bangladesh. The team was due to fly out tomorrow but Cricket Australia
has postponed the departure. It follows a warning from the Department of Foreign
Affairs and Trade about a possible security risk. There have been numerous terror
attacks and arrests in Bangladesh in recent years. Travel and security arrangements
will be revised before the team is allowed to travel. A man has died in a fiery crash
north of the Gold Coast overnight. He was driving along Upper Ormeau
Road in Kingsholme, just before 9pm, when he veered off the road. The car fell down an embankment,
hit a tree, and burst into flames.

but the man was pronounced dead
at the scene. A controversial deputy mayor
from Sydney has been accused of making threats
against a Lindt Cafe Siege survivor. Police are investigating claims of
an altercation between Salim Mehajer and gym employee Bruce Herat. It's alleged Mr Mehajer threatened
to have his kids kidnapped, after an argument over equipment. Mr Herat's son
is Lindt worker Joel Herat, one of several held hostage
in last year's fatal Sydney siege. Witnesses have been interviewed
on the incident and security video
is being reviewed. You've probably heard of dogs whose
barks are bigger than their bites. Now it's time to meet the lion cub whose roar
is even smaller than he his.

West Coast will battle Hawthorn in the Grand Final on Saturday
at the MCG after a 25-point comeback win
over North Melbourne. A big upset looked a possibility as the Kangaroos jumped
to a shock 20-point lead, holding the Eagles goalless
in the opening term. But West Coast kicked 10 of the next
12 goals after quarter time, to advance to
their first grand final since 2006. COMMENTATOR: To Wellingha-a-a-a-am. Wellingham goals!

Obviously when you go through
an era of success you know how to handle the tickets, your family and the parade
and all those things. That helps but it doesn't guarantee
anything. Brad Scott refused to blame several
contentious umpiring decisions for the defeat. The Hawks and Eagles last met
in the Grand Final in 1991. The Cowboys and Broncos will meet
in all Queensland NRL Grand Final after the Cowboys defeated
the Storm 32-12 in Melbourne. The turning point came
in the 54th minute - Michael Morgan crossed in the corner
and Marika Koroibete was sin-binned for punching Kyle Feldt
in back play. Led by the inspirational Thurston,
the Cowboys ran in another two tries to reach the decider
for the first time in a decade. The Dally M favourite is set to miss
the awards night in Sydney tomorrow, with a gruelling flight schedule
a major factor. It takes a lot out of ya. You know when you play away,
the flights very hard on the body. Ah, takes you an extra day or so
extra probably couple of days, JT showed his class, giving his headgear to a young Storm
fan at half-time with the pair re-uniting
after the game. A massive result in
the Wallabies Rugby World Cup group with Wales fighting back
to upset England 28-25. Wales trailed by 10 points early
in the second half but levelled the scores with a stunning long range try
in the 71st minute. COMMENTATOR: And over on the far
side it is Williams. Hold on!
Kicking back on the inside! They need a bounce.
They get the bounce! What a try!
What a try, Gareth Davies.

Dan Biggar then booted a penalty
goal from the half-way line with six minutes to play and the Welsh hold on
for a famous victory. Prince Harry, William and Kate were quick to congratulate
coach Warren Gatland. South Africa bounced back
from their shock loss to Japan, beating Samoa 46-6. A spectator somehow made his way
onto the field and into the thick of the action.

Jason Day appears set to lose
the world number one ranking after just one week. Day is eight shots behind leader
Jordan Spieth going into the final round of the
season-ending tour championship. Spieth leads by a shot and if he wins the event
and Day finishes outside the top 5, he'll reclaim top spot
in the rankings.

JT, your weathers this weekend have been among the best in a long, long time. Back we go to Melbourne.You are kind, it has been great fun. I can't take all the credit, but I have to say a big thank you to the band! Get out of the way!

That is sensational! He looks so expert!That is the culmination of a life's work there, JT, I loved it!Let's look at the weather!

Weekend Sunrise weather, brought
to you by Inner Health For Kids. Have your kids had their
Inner Health today?

The band don't just do what we just did, but also yodelling. Take it away.(YODELLING) push

(YODELLING)

(YODELLING)I feel like Donkey in Shrek!It sounds like an donkey chewing an air horn, doesn't it? Don't talk him Fritz like that, he did a great job.You were great! Thanks very much, guys.JT does have German heritage which is why he is so good at the yodelling and the lederhosen.See, this is what I mean when I said there were better things in life than Mariah Carey, that's what I meant!

Each night you spend a chillly night
sleeping under a warm blanket, spare a thought for the thousands
of people who call the street their home. Just a few months ago,
Richard Porrelli was one of them. But with a little help
from some new-found friends he's found a new purpose. Every night in Australia over 100,000 people sleep
on the streets with no roof over their head
or food in their bellies. They make up the faceless mass
of Australia's homeless. Richard Porrelli
is just 25 years old. Even at that young age, he knows
what it's like to sleep rough. Just a few short months ago, he was homeless
and sleeping in a car park at Penrith Station in Sydney's west. A casualty of Australia's failure to look after
its most vulnerable people. But Richard has turned
his life around and he's now paying it forward with two charities
that saved his life. He's gone from needing food
to dishing it out for others. It's alright. There's enough to go around. And hoping that he can help
change the lives of people who think
hope doesn't exist. And Richard Porrelli joins us
this morning, along with Gen Jagt from
homelessness charity group Paying It Forward. Welcome to the show. Richard, what was life like
when you were living on the streets? What took

What took you to a life there, in the first place?Well, there was a few reasons but mainly the mental illness I was suffering from at the time, which was pretty much now well sorted.So you couldn't get on top of it and couldn't stay at home or with anyone else.Yeah.That's a situation shared by a lot of people on the streets, did you find that? Did you make friends out there, aside from charity groups?Yeah, yeah, you meet a lot of people when you're out there, and you just - everyone bends together and tries to help each other out as much as possible, really.So that must be quite difficult then when you get to a position where you are able to get yourself out of homelessness to know that a lot of friends you have made will remain homeless themselves.Yeah. It really does - it plays on your mind quite sufficiently.Indeed.And that's one of the reasons that I decided I wanted to change everything around and start volunteering.Great, terrific. Gen, as we said, you are with Paying It Forward. Just give us a little precis on what it is you do?We have a team that goes three nights a week down into Penrith and serves hot meals to anywhere between 12 patrons or up to 60 or 65. So they get a hot meal and dessert and tea and coffee and that sort of thing and we also provide them with clothing, blankets, bedding, that sort of thing. We get to know them and chat with them and find out what their needs are and everyone has got different needs. So then we try and connect them with different organisations.With the right services?.. And services that will help themIs Richard's a unique story or do you find people that can turn their lives around and then in turn volunteer and help others?Look, I think there are many different reasons why people are on the streets. And what we saw in Richard, or we call him Dicky, is he was young and he had the potential to sort of rise above all the things, all the negative stuff, and we could see that he really wanted to help himself. So, there's some people out there that, as much as you try and help them, you know, it's really difficult for them to overcome their obstacles.Of course.But we found with Dicky that he really had the drive and passion to get himself out of that situation.Fantastic.So, Richard, or Dicky, you know, Janice just said something very interesting - that we should see in you the ability to transcend the position that you were in. What is it that allowed you, when you were homeless, to retain hope of creating something different?Just the thoughts that I had. About bettering myself and getting the roof over my head.Do you remember a moment where you thought, right, I can get out of this, I can bounce back?There were a couple, yeah. And with the amazing help that Gen and Chris from Street Med also gave me I was able to and I came straight out of it and looking for the better now.Great. Can anyone volunteer?Yeah, look, we started off with just my husband and I doing it and it has grown and grown and grown and we've now got approximately 50 volunteers and they're from all different walks of life, so yeah, we've got a really full roster at the moment, but it's really good and it's not just volunteering on site - there's other things that can be done sort of not on site.And it is not just an issue for CBDs but out in Penrith and Parramatta and across all cities across Australia and rural areas, as well.Yeah, it is a big issue.Thank you for joining us.All the details of how you can volunteer if Gen can fit you into the roster - and it's fantastic to hear there are so many volunteers - will be on our website later on.

Coming up - Avalanche City performs
a new number one single live right here in the studio. Plus, would you quit work
to become first lady? Lucy Turnbull says a woman's role
shouldn't change because of her husband's career. And the fitness instructor
accused of fat-shaming and abuse. next.

I'm so ready for this. Let the live music roll as Bieber arrives for Sunrise week.It is a week for screaming girls on Sunrise, I think we can take it that that's the case.Yes. When Iraq war vet and self-styled
fitness motivator John Burk posted a video online,
he divided opinion. To the overweight people - no, I'm not gonna accept you for
who you are with that (BLEEP) excuse of "You should love me
because I'm beautiful." You're personality might be
beautiful but your body is not. His video went viral and
was viewed over 5 million times. When I sit there and look
at somebody that's overweight, no, I find that utterly
repulsive and disgusting. Some people have responded
positively, saying it was just the motivation
they needed to lose weight. Others say it was simply five
minutes of vicious bullying and fat-shaming. Is there method in the madness? Joining us from North Carolina
is fitness instructor John Burk. John, your core messages are
that people need to exercise, stop eating junk food and passing
bad habits on to their children. Why did you choose this way
of delivering that message?

case.Yes.Well, for the past 30 years, the obesity epidemic has doubled and as we've got further and further we've coddled more people and been lenient and too kind. I've been a soldier for 12 years now and I know what works for some people. Is it going to work for everybody? No, it's not. There's no way to appeal to every single audience out there, but as soon as this went viral my website went from 3,000 to 24,000. Some people need an aggressive type of approach. It's not for everybody, like I said, but it does work for some. Is it bullying and fat-shaming? No, it's not, it's speaking truth and that's what offends people.It is an extreme boot camp, I suppose, is your defence. On the issue of bullying, you do talk about in the videos the bullying that overweight people are subjected to and you said you were bullied as a youngster, too. Isn't this video, too? What do you say to those people who say it is bullying?You can see it how you want, that's your interpretation of the video. Me -- for me, that's not bullying, that's not even a tenth of what bullying can go to. Now, if someone was yelling at me, in my face, I would shut down and not lose weight. But if all it took was one man to sit there and say, hey, you need to do something to stop killing yourself softly and you want to quit you never wanted it bad in the first place. So naturally they will say it's bullying and fat shaming.Well if you call someone disgusting that sounds very much like bullying. But a number of studies by public health experts have demonstrated that by shaming people in this way, it most often leads to weight gain and can lead to mental health issues. So in fact it can have, for most people, that negative motivation, it's completely counter-productive, so can't you find a more positive way to encourage people to lose weight? Rather than through negative motivation?Let's turn it this way. There is positivity in it. It boils down to, give a child a trophy just for participating. I don't agree with that whatsoever. I motivate people when they do something, when they take that first step and get into the arena and start fighting, I'll push them. I tell my friends and soldiers and those I train with, I will reach down your throat and pull the potential out of you and in years from now, when you are successful and you've attained that body and physique you always wanted and that healthy lifestyle, you will turn around and thank me. How do I know that? I did it for two years as a drill sergeant. But I'm not going overboard and in their face insulting them. But talking about disgusting and repulsive, that sedentary lifestyle? I do find it disgusting, you've got one life to live, sitting on the couch watching push TV and eating garbage. It's a waste. And even with my own children I will not preach that mediocrity is not fun. You either go all in or don't attempt it.Let's drill down into your methods. What are some things people can take away from your army training that you think will help them lead to a healthy lifestyle? Oh, the things that you definitely can take away is the fact that it's - when you want to take that first step towards living a better life, towards pursuing physical fitness and health, one of the things is you've got to convince yourself that, look, there's no going back. Once you start, don't stop. You are going to fall down and fall off the wagon, we all do. But, for example, if you want to go to the page, the John Burk fitness motivator page and see for yourself - and when somebody posts a question and I don't get to it right away, 30, 40, or 200 people are there to answer for me, other fitness enthusiasts. Now, it's not for everybody but for me it's - it's hard, it is extremely hard to stay fit, to eat - I know people have jobs and children burr you're either going to find a way or you are going to find an excuse. It's just you attack or don't even try.Stick at it is the message there.Alright. Thank you, John, for joining us this morning.Thank you for having me.It's one thing to say stick at it, but it's getting at it in the first place which is the really hard part for so many people and, you know, just the research does show that this is the least effective way to get the majority of people to get started.But I guess it is down to the individual in each different case. Some people do respond to that kind of extreme boot camp and you can see it at different levels here. There are boot camps all over the shop that do have those military-style exercises. So that might work for some people. Yoga might work for someone else. Some people might like the approach.The method is no problem at all. But it's the motivation!I would find it a little confronting! Although I did just enjoy that!You just scared me! I don't want to read my next bit

Talitha has the news headlines
after the break plus the Cash Cow codeword that
could win you thousands of dollars. And Chris Brown banned
from entering Australia. What kind of message does
refusing the rapper send? We'll discuss that soon.

It's time for the news,
with Talitha. A giant sinkhole has opened up
on Queensland's Sunshine Coast forcing the closure
of a national park. The ground gave way at Inskip Point
in the middle of the night, swallowing up
part of a camping ground. A caravan, car, camping trailer
and tent fell into the hole but luckily no-one was injured. It's believed the sinkhole is about
100 metres wide and 3 metres deep. Queensland National Park authorities
are assessing the damage. As Australia tries to tackle
a domestic violence crisis, another woman has been killed
in North Queensland. She was found at a unit
in Townsville last night, suffering serious stab wounds. She was pronounced dead
at the scene. Police arrested a man,
who they say was known to the woman. He's being treated in hospital.
Investigations are continuing. The Australian cricket team's
departure for the tour of Bangladesh has been delayed due to concerns
about safety and security. Cricket Australia says recent advice
from government sources identified a potential security risk
to Australians in Bangladesh. but will now wait for further
security advice before confirming new travel plans. There have been a number of terror
attacks and arrests in Bangladesh in recent years.

West Coast finished strongly to beat
North Melbourne by 25 points, reaching their first grand final
since 2006. After trailing at both quarter
and half-time, the Eagles found top gear, kicking
7 goals to 3 in the second half to book a showdown with Hawthorn in
Saturday's decider at the MCG, where they've only played
once this year. If you wanna win a grand final
you gotta win at the 'G. it just doesn't happen. The Eagles smashed the Hawks
in Perth a fortnight ago. has lifted the Cowboys into their
first NRL grand final in a decade. North Queensland defeated Melbourne
32-12, setting up an all-Queensland decider
against the Broncos. Thurston was at scintillating best
for the Cowboys, setting up four of
North Queensland's six tries. He came off
as a precaution late in the match. Just, ahhh, the back
of my shinbone.

Storm winger Marika Koroibete
was sin-binned for throwing a punch at Kyle Feldt
early in the second half. Wales has staged a massive upset
beating England 28-25 at the Rugby World Cup. Despite a number of injuries, the Welsh fought back from 10 points
down early in the second half, levelling the scores in the 71st
minute with a sensational long try. Dan Biggar then slotted a penalty
goal from the half-way line with 6 minutes to play and the Welsh held on
for a brave victory. Prince Harry, William and Kate were quick to congratulate
Wales coach Warren Gatland.

Nice to see Wills in his specs there!New-look prince!

We're celebrating Oktoberfest at the Munich Brauhaus in Melbourne and every Sunday is family day and the kids can come here and paint these gingerbread huts, or Lebkuchen, I think they're called in Germany. And we're ready and we've got the gang - haven't they been fantastic - the guys in their lederhosen and the girls in their Dirndl. The only thing to do is just to kick it off. If we can just... (SINGING)

Have a great day, everybody! Happy Oktoberfest!What a wonderful way to hark back to a time before complex rhythms!Or harmony! Alright, thank you, JT! Guten Tag to everyone.

Now it's time to see
what's making news today. Please welcome the All Stars! (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)

Would you give up work Our new PM's wife Lucy Turnbull says her career.

Joining us to discuss
are our All Stars - Gretel Killeen
and comedian Tim 'Rosso' Ross.

Now, Lucy has quite a lot of interesting and important work.Has she been asked to give it up?I think there is an expectation among many.It's so defined in America, but here it's less well defined. I completely respect Lucy Turnbull's notion that this is my life and it's well established and I don't have to defeat because of my husband's achievements. The only thing is, I think she is an absolute asset to the country and I want to hear what she thinks.I'm sure you will.I don't know...I think we will hear as much as we would like from her, because she is in this position.I think that Malcolm Turnbull has long said, "We this as a team" and I want to see the other half the team, because I think she is an inspirational woman and I want her in the public eye. For selfish reasons!There is a sense, obviously, she has been successful in her own right, she has been a politician herself, she comes from a political family and they're loaded. So there's not a lot of that, "Oh my God, I can't believe we're here, let's jump on the beds in the lodge".But nobody wants that story. We want leaders and I think...But you're also talking about, in a sense, the same excitement I think isn't there. Well, more often than not it is a more semisive role -- submissive role, people taking on charities and that sort of stuff. And you want to see people taking on the leadership together.They've done it together from what I've heard and I want to see them up there together. This is a country which only three days ago was saying we need to respect women - well, let's get our role models out there. I see it as a joint achievement and let's celebrate that.And she can get a parmiagiana whenever she wants.Are you trivialising this? It just makes sense! But, I don't think she is so excited about... But what does excitement have to do with it?Because I think she has had so much - there's so much going on in her life, she has done all of this sort of stuff, the whole novelty is not - it's just like, whatever.I think this is a sign of the changing times, of course, but traditionally a partner of a Prime Minister may not have had any official capacity, any work capacity, any official roles in the public eye and suddenly they do. So that becomes a big thing to see how that person manages it. When you've already got huge and important roles in the public sphere, it's less of a big thing, I guess.She has got stuff to do.You can understand why she would want to continue those.But with Michelle Obama, for example, she has taken on children's charities and I guess what a lot of what does focuses on that so I guess it's up to Lucy Turnbull to decide what she wants to do and put it on the national agenda.Why step out of the spotlight? This country needs female role models. Let's do a deal with Lucy, I think she's terrific, maybe once every month or two weeks, she is present.I don't think she is not doing anything as the First Lady, I don't think she is saying that at all. She wants to do her stuff first and fit in the First Lady stuff around that.Very modern.Very modern. She will still get that bell for the parmagiana! You are trivialising this!Let's move on! Another topic and Chris Brown has ban almost banned from touring Australia on character grounds. He was infamously convicted of assault in 2009 after bashing his girlfriend, Rihanna. And anyone convicted of a serious offence, in this case a felony offence, is refused a visa into Australia unless they can mount a good argument that they should be allowed in. He is a changed man - has anyone seen any evidence?Well, he said it and that he has done community service and rehabilitated and only this June he was seen screaming at another woman, pushing her out of the car, he did a concert calling his ex-girlfriend certain inflammatory names.He has violated his probation.So where is this change? Absolutely, if someone does that, that's fine but particularly at this point in time - he has also been banned from, you know, has not been accepted into Britain and Canada.Don't let him in.He has to adhere, though. I'm not saying we should let him in again but we let him in before.You hear the stories because Australians aren't allowed into America if they've got drug convictions and I remember I talked to this guy who had a little joint at the age of 18 and was caught at this time by the police and now it's 35 and the Americans won't let him take his family to Disneyland. So they do that for us and Chris Brown is a bad man. Don't let him in. Tit for tat, I say.But we need to keep the vision of Australia, don't let a man come into her and be celebrated and be a role model for violent acts associated with his behaviour - the answer is no! If he had genuinely thought through the combrikss of his actions and genuinely come to grips with what he had done sure, that would be fine, I think. But when you read the lyrics - you know, girl, you had better not change your mind, no is not an option, I'm going to take what's mine - all written after his rehabilitation. One wonders!Not proof of a real rehabilitation. This country should not just talk the talk, we should deal with it. You should go into politics!I like it here thank you very much. In

# I heard your heart say # Love, love, love

That was his first hit single and now here's the new hit single! Here's Avalanche City with Inside Out.

# We are coming last, baby

# And we failed each one

# So I'm cleaning out the back seat # Getting my stuff

# Please stop me when I leave # But I know that you won't

# And this is inside out # I want the best # But our love is lost

# And this is inside out # But all we have is gone

# And this is inside out # I want the best # But our love is lost

# And this is inside out # I want you here # But all we have is gone

# I want to move # But my heart keeps
dragging me down # I'm trying to speak # But the words get stuck
in my mouth

# We'd say as I go

# That I'm never coming home, girl # Just so you know

# And this is inside out # I want the best # But our love is lost

# And this is inside out # I want you here # But all we have is gone

# And this is inside out # I want the best # But our love is lost

# And this is inside out # I want you here

# But all we have is gone. #

# And this is inside out # I want the best # But our love is lost # And this is inside out # I want you here

# But all we have is gone. #

# And this is inside out # I want the best # But our love is lost

# And this is inside out # I want you here

# But all we have is gone. #

(APPLAUSE)

Thank you.

Avalanche City is currently touring
Australia with Conrad Sewell. Head to our website for tour dates
and venues. The new single, Inside Out,
is also available now or you can get it on his new album
We Are For The Wild Places. Don't go anywhere, after the break -
the car of the future - and the young Aussies who could
change the way we drive.

Justin Bieber. 5 Seconds of Summer. Their exclusive performances
are live on Sunrise this week. Plus, Ellie Goulding.
Chris Isaak, Bryan Adams. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt on recreating one of the greatest
stunts of all time. And Drew Barrymore is dropping in
to chat with Sam. I'm so ready for this. Let the live music roll as Bieber
arrives for Sunrise Superstars week. 20 Australian university students could have created
the car of the future. Called Unlimited,
it weights just 150 kilograms and can go up to 130km/h. If that isn't amazing enough -
they're planning to cross Australia using less than $2 worth
of electricity. The entire team
and Unlimited are here this morning. and Anuj Verma, or AJ. Welcome.

Tell us about the technology, how does it work?It runs off 60 square metres of solar cells, as you can tell, on the roof here and that powers a battery that drives the motor in the back and that power the car and allows us to drive on the standard highway.So these are standard solar panels?They are similar to house panels but a bit more efficient than your regular house panel. That said, these are about double the efficiency. What it allows us to do is get enough power for us to drive this car across 3,000km on the power of a kettle.Are they quite delicate? Because we went to touch one and you told us off!Sorry, we want to go for a race so we want to make sure it's in optimal condition. Talking of that, today is not that great for solar panel cars, I would imagine. How do you cope in those conditions?The car does thousands of kilometres without any solar at all. We started the race with a full pack and by the end of the race we have to manage that power to get to the end of 3,000km. So there's a lot of strategy involved and we're competing with the best teams in the world.So why will the University of Western Sydney car be so much better than other cars competing in there. What is the difference?I think the difference for us is in the way we manufacture. We've got to the Nth degree that we can in terms of partnering with professional institutions and companies to work to get this car absolutely immaculate and very, very efficient. To give you an idea, the car runs on, like I said, less power than a kettle at highway speeds and they don't close the road for us.And apparently red goes a bit faster, as well!Not exactly the people mover! Which one of you gets to drive it?You are standing rite next to him.Good stuff, what's your name?Rez.So off been through the wind tunnel testing and...The hair is perfect! Why don't you jump in the car and tell us how it feels in the seat? We've got to be really careful. Just don't touch the solar panel. Slide down?Slide in. That is a bit of a tight squeeze.Oh no!That's OK, it is a race car!So you really are very tight.Very tight, that's why we need jockey-sized drivers!

Rez!It's more Rez's size.Very tight and very fast!Good luck with the race. When is it?On the 18th of October and it finishes on the 25th but we will be League -- leaving this Thursday.Good luck, guys.

# But I love it, but I love it... # Good morning, and welcome to your
Sunday edition of The Morning Show. Today, we meet the American model
with the longest legs in the biz. Plus, we explain
what you need to know for tomorrow night's blood moon. But first - he could save the world with just a paperclip
and a roll of tape. Now MacGyver star
Richard Dean Anderson is Down Under, '80s hero. If you're in trouble, there is only
one man you want by your side.

MacGyver, is there a purpose
behind these acrobatics?

Oh, I hope so. MacGyver used his quick wit
and science skills to get out of the trickiest
situations. These ties are made of plastic. They've got a low melting point. The show ran for seven years,
and its popularity shot actor Richard Dean Anderson
to instant fame. The actor went on to star
in a number of other TV shows, including
a 10-year stint on Stargate. You are the leader?
Oh, no. That would be... Me. Colonel Jack O'Neill. Kumbaya. (CHUCKLES) Comtrya. Whatever. But if there has to be one
highlight in his stellar career, surely this would have to be
up there. Richard Dean Anderson. Did someone mention my names? (BOTH GASP) Richard Dean Anderson!

(LAUGHS) So many names. Richard Dean Anderson joins us
live in the studio. Welcome to you.
Thank you, thank you. It's a real treat to have you here. Sami, your friends are going nuts.
Oh, my goodness. I wanted to be you
when I was younger. This is great! What do you reckon, when you're
looking back at the old stuff? Well, the one that sticks out the
most for me - those who know me - is the Simpsons episode that I did. That was, like, a little boy's dream because I grew up watching and to be a part of that animated
series - even just briefly - just made my heart go all...patter. Do people still recognise you on
the street now without the mullet? Yes, dear.
(CHUCKLES) I... Yes. I've been without the mullet
for quite some time - I think since it was fashionable. But, yeah, it's getting harder
and harder to recognise, because - as some of us know -
the older you get,

And gravity takes its course. You're a silver fox, though.
You're a total silver fox. I've never heard that before. Grey. White. Platinum. BOTH: Silver fox. So, was it as fun to film as it was
for us to watch the show? Oh, absolutely. As I was saying earlier, I mean,
I was in my...30s.

It was... We were in an era
that we belonged in - the mid '80s to the early '90s. And therefore,
the acceptance of the mullet But, yeah, I mean, it looked... It was just as much fun
as it looked like. How do the sci-fi fans now,
when you meet them, differ from the MacGyver fans? Or don't they differ? Yeah, there's...
there's a difference. When I was hired to do Stargate, there was a particular audience
that I brought along with me. And the movie Stargate
brought that contingent. was going to be a very volatile and very full potential of a series. Had the greatest on-screen prop
you can imagine. We had Stargate,
through which, again, to the nth degree. And anything can happen.
Can we talk about Oz Comic-Con? 'Cause this is a huge deal here. Talk us through what you're doing
with Oz Comic-Con. Well, the Comic-Con -
the Oz Comic-Con - is... ..well,
I don't want to say one of many, because it's...for even Australia,
it's a unique venture. It's a gathering of science-fiction
fans, of which there are many, in many glorious... Well, there's a dynamic involved
that I like a lot, which is the costuming
of each and every one of them that come through the door. And that is...people watching
the event, like nobody's business. And it's glorious. I just love it. The commitment. I'm most fond of those
that make a huge commitment

I went to this once in San Diego.
Did you? It's incredible. And it's catching
on here. It's becoming a huge deal. So, you're going to have
a lot of fun. Oh, more than that.
Maybe 200 miles. Alright. Thank you so much for coming.
It's been lovely to meet you. You too, guys.
I'm going to call you MacGyver. Lovely to meet you, MacGyver.
Sure, dahl. You can see Richard Dean Anderson... Oddly enough, that didn't get
awkward at all - like, when you said that. It was fine. No, it was just fine. I wanted to say, "Thanks, MacGyver."
How many people get to say that? You can see Richard Dean Anderson in
person this weekend at Oz Comic-Con. All the ticket details
are on our website. Come on out! # We're cool for the summer... #

I'll give this one back to you,
