Making news this morning: Donald Trump rejects calls for him to withdraw from the presidential race after the leaking of a controversial video. I said it. I was wrong, and I apologise.

Hurricane Matthew makes landfall on the US coast as the death toll rises to 900 people in Haiti. Devastation as an airstrike hits a funeral hall in Yemen killing at least 80 people. And Sydney FC humiliate the Wanderers in front of more than 60,000 people in the opening round of the A-league

Hello. Thanks for joining us. It's Sunday the 9th of October. Also coming up on Weekend Breakfast: When scientific feats go wrong. Ten new winners have been celebrated at this year's Ignobel prizes. Each has done something that makes people laugh, then think. Winners travel to the ceremony, at their own expense, from around the world to receive their prize. We will be joined by a past award recipient, Dr Karl, to delve into this year's bemusing winners. And we are seeing rocks, because apparently hate they have lots of personality, tombstones, as they can attract dragonfly. White horses may seem to be an aberration and more likely to be under attack from savage beasts like lions, but it prevents them from being a target for horse flies. They can't be seen. That is a lot to take in first thing this morning.There is a lot of research going on but may not serve a useful purpose, but you would be surprised.If you can't win a Nobel Prize, when a Ignobel. -- win. Let's check the weather in the capitals. Sydney - windy. Melbourne - windy with showers. Brisbane - mostly sunny. Perth - possible shower. Adelaide - windy with showers. Canberra - mostly sunny. Hobart - windy with rain. Darwin - sunny.

Our top stories this morning: A severe weather warning for damaging winds has been issued for Victoria, with wind gusts of up to 120km/h forecast for parts of the state. A flood evacuation warning also remains in place for residents of Ulupna Island on the Murray River. Emergency services say the area is now inaccessible, after the only road into the island was cut off by flood waters. While the water levels remain steady, high winds are expected to move into the area.

Police are forensically examining a jet ski and a boat involved in a fatal crash on the New South Wales mid-north coast yesterday. A 54-year-old woman was killed and her 8-year-old passenger injured when their jet ski collided with a boat on the Nerong inlet. The 46-year-old skipper of the boat suffered fractures to his nose and ribs. Authorities say they're still trying to determine how the accident occurred but speed is being investigated as a possible factor.

A Queensland man has appeared in court charged with murder after allegedly driving a car into a funeral in far north Queensland on Friday. Police allege Gary Paul Hudson drove a four-wheel-drive into a house of mourners at his partner's funeral at western Cape York. A 48-year-old woman was killed and at least 25 others were injured in the incident. The court heard many more charges were expected to be laid against Hudson. The 55-year-old was remanded in custody to appear in court again in November.

To workers walked off the job over safety concerns before a fatal accident at a Brisbane construction site -- two. Two men were killed when a pair of concrete slabs fell down in a peak they were standing in. The CFMEU says to workers from the site came forward late last week to report they walked off the job at the racecourse. One of the men reportedly told the union he thought someone would die due to poor conditions.

A Tasmanian woman who was among a group of pro-Palestinian activists detained by the Israeli military has returned to Hobart. Madeleine Habib was captaining a boat bound for Gaza when she and her 12 female crew were detained by the Israeli navy. The Israeli military argued its actions were in accordance with international law. Habib returned to Hobart yesterday afternoon after spending a day in prison and then being deported. She says she plans to continue to campaign to draw attention to the plight of women and children in Gaza.

Donald Trump has vowed to never quit the US presidential race in spite of an outcry over his latest comments about women. Members of his own party have urged the controversial businessman to step down after old video footage of him emerged boasting about groping women. The crude comments brought condemnations from high ranking republican officials and prompted several others to withdraw their support. In a recorded apology, Mr Trump said he was wrong to make the comments and pledged to be a better man. But for one Hollywood actor, an apology wasn't enough. He's a punk. He's a dog. He's a pig. He's a con artist. He is a mutt who doesn't know what he is talking about, doesn't do his homework, doesn't care. He thinks he is gaining society. He doesn't pay his taxes. He is an idiot. Colin Powell said it best, he is a national disaster and an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry this country has got to this point that this fool has wound up where he has. He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face. I want to punch him in the face.

Nearly 900 people are now confirmed dead in Haiti as a result of Hurricane Matthew. The storm made landfall on the US coast in South Carolina overnight with authorities warning the now-category-one storm could bring serious inland flooding. At least four deaths in the state of Florida have been attributed to Matthew while more than a million households lost power. The death toll in Haiti is expected to rise as some of the remote areas are yet to be reached.

82 people have been killed after a Saudi-led coalition strike hit a funeral hall in the Yemeni capital Sanaa. The rebel Houthi-run government says more than 500 people have been injured. Houthi rebels are at war with the internationally-recognised Yemeni government, which is backed by a Saudi-led coalition. The UN says thousands of civilians have been killed since the Saudi-led air campaign started last march.

Russia has vetoed a draft UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate end to airstrikes and military flights over the Syrian city of Aleppo. The resolution was put forward to the council by France as conflict rages on in the besieged city. It's the fifth time Russia has vetoed a UN resolution on Syria during the more than five-year conflict that's left hundreds of thousands dead.

Police in Germany are searching for a 22-year-old man suspected of planning a bomb attack. It comes after traces of explosives were found during a raid of an apartment in the eastern city of Chemnitz. Police received information from Germany's domestic intelligence agency about potential attack plans, which triggered the raid. Three people who had contact with the suspect have been taken into custody. And police are hoping they have information that might help the man they're looking for. Authorities have not said where the alleged attack was going to take place.

And some centuries-old lost treasure has washed up on a beach in Poland. Locals walking along a beach in the north-west of the country stumbled across pieces a wooden boat washed ashore, believed to be from the nineteenth century. Locals say the autumn storms leave something on the beaches each year, but it's the first time they've spotted boat wreckage. The fragments will be kept and preserved in a nearby museum.

Now to sport with Nick Lockyer. There was a tight affair for the Wallabies this morning.Yes, it was very nerve wracking watching them go into action against Argentina this morning. My nails are barely left, because it was very tight. The Wallabies have finished the rugby championship in second spot after beating Argentina in London this morning. Australia managed to take a 10-point lead into half time despite receiving two yellow cards before the break. Samu Kerevi has crossed for a double. He had a great game. This morning the All Blacks wrapped up the championship with their biggest ever victory over South Africa - a 57-15 smashing which equalled their world record winning streak of 17 Tests.

Sydney FC has begun its A-league season in emphatic fashion in front of nearly 62,000 fans. The Sky Blues recorded a 4-0 thrashing of cross town rival, Western Sydney. They scored all of their goals in the second half and extended their unbeaten streak in the Sydney derby to eight matches. Also last night, Central Coast came from 3-0 down to salvage a 3-3 draw with Perth and Melbourne City defeated Wellington 1-0.

Jamie Whincup will start today's Bathurst 1000 race from pole position after recording the fastest time in yesterday's Top 10 Shootout. He narrowly edged out Volvo's Scott McLaughlin. 2014 champion Chaz Mostert will start the race from third on the grid.

Nick Kyrgios is just one win away from his third ATP title. The world number 15 was at his best as he advanced to the decider of the Japan Open with a straight sets victory over Gael Monfils. He'll take on David Goffin in the final.

Perth has bounced back from its disappointing start to the NBL season with a thrilling overtime win over Cairns. The defending champions dominated to record a 10-point victory over the Taipans. Earlier, Andrew Gaze had a forgettable coaching debut with Sydney - the Kings lost to Brisbane by 4 points.

They had a shocker last season. Hopefully that does not continue this season. Anyway, we will see how they go.Let's hope they can forget about that and move on.62,000 fans at Olympic Park. A great atmosphere. It was great to see the fence going at it. -- fans.I'm sure it was.

Thanks for your company here on Weekend Breakfast. Still to come: Donald Trump is not letting up on his campaign despite calls for human to quit after video he was leaked of him making lewd comments about women. The UN has attacked Australia's failure to help children in detention centres, citing failures to properly investigate children attempting suicide and self-harm, as well as corporal punishment.

Appeals are underway to try to help people hit hard in Haiti, after Hurricane Matthew tore through the country. More than 800 people are now known to have died in the storm, while tens of thousands of people are now homeless.

Donald Trump has said he will remain in the campaign for the White House despite calls for him to drop out. It follows comments that were leaked about him bragging about grabbing women's janitors. It has been a rather interesting 24 hours -- genitals.Ron Burgundy once said, that escalated quickly. This presidential campaign is all but over. Donald Trump called upon to step down by senior members of his own party. We have not seen this in modern political history. I can't overstate just how extraordinary this situation is. After an extraordinary year, when from the moment Donald Trump declared his candidacy and called Mexicans rapists, and within a month he was calling for a complete ban on was an immigration to the United States. People are saying why is this any different? The reason why is he has condoned the sexual assault of women. He has told on a hot microphone when he thought nobody was listening in a way that reveals to people is to sell. This is as damaging as Richard Nixon using obscenities, anti-Semitic, anti- bike comments on the White House tapes at the height of Watergate. This is the smoking gun, and unfortunately for Donald Trump, there is a lot more out there and it is all coming out, and all of the women who for the past year have been saying Donald Trump assault to me, he made me feel bad in this situation and that situation, suddenly they are being listened to in a way they were not before.The dam wall has broken. He is saying I have changed. But some commentators say this proves the opposite. There are recent sexist remarks he has made. This goes back to 2005. Those who oppose him say this as evidence he has not changed. He has always been this way.Does a 70-year-old change? That is the question. Donald Trump can say that was not the real me. That is to spot Karim Benzema. But anybody... -- that is just locker room banter. People are saying, how bad is this? Even if viewers have really seen this, it is worth having a look at some of this tape again. This is somebody running for the office held by Lincoln, by Reagan, by Barack Obama. There are talk like that. American people will not wear it.

You are saying it is all over at this point for Donald Trump. What about the Republican campaign? Can they get someone else in there?This is being asked now at the highest levels of the party. They have already effectively decided they will withdraw the practical support. They have endorsed him as their presidential candidate, but there is a legal question. They can withdraw the money. And the personnel to make the phone calls to get out the vote to support Donald Trump. That is already being drawn back. Major donors have ready said they are withdrawing their support was that we have had governors and senators and senior figures like the third ranking senator of South Dakota saying they do not endorse Donald Trump any more. This is a significant withdrawal of endorsement. He is on the ballot paper. He will be on the ballot paper in 50 states. A lot of Republicans are thinking Mike Pence had a great debate. Maybe we should put him at the top of the ticket. We get Donald Trump to quit, because we can't sack him. He has to quit or die. A bit much to hope he will die. They are hoping he will quit. Does somebody like Paul Ryan, the House Majority Leader, step up and say I will stand as vice president to Mike Pence at the top of the ticket. Democrats do not want bad. They are not prepared to fighting. Mike Pence is neck and neck with Hillary Clinton if he is the hypothetical top of the ticket. He could beat Hillary Clinton right now. Donald Trump is five points down and plummeting. He could be heading for a big defeat. He could lose this by 15 points and take the Senate and the house down with him. Democrats don't want Donald Trump to quit. Republicans are trying to find their way to pushing out and maybe wait to do that is to say Donald, you will be humiliated. You have a debate tomorrow. A town hall style debate. Half the audience are women. Imagine the questions they will ask. Howard would this the? You being a rented sexist against the first female presidential nominee? It will not look good.

Hillary Clinton wants him to stay where he is. He has now been prepping after attacking her for prepping. It could be an onslaught of questions from both the public and the moderator about this tape. Donald is comfortable when it is about Donald and nuclear disarmament, Iran or Syria is when he gets a ropey. He is a happy when the questions are about Donald. He is psychologically probably quite pleased. Like Elvis, he has 10 television monitors in his bedroom and he sees his face on them. He has called up journalists because he saw an article was written about him without reading it. This guy loves the attention which is probably why when he says he is not going to quit, he will not quit. That apology last night, it did not look like a man stepping down. He talked about Bill Clinton and said he actually did those things I was talking about. What if Donald Sharp does that, he threatened to go there in the first debate. Saying he could not go there. Chelsea was in the audience and I could not say that in front of her. It is almost certain that if he attends this debate, he will go there and it will be a remarkable moment.Every time I turn around something unexpected happens. Thank you for being on the program. Thank you. Appeals are underway to try to help people hit hard in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew tore through the country. More than 800 people are now known to have died in the storm, while tens of thousands of people are now homeless - with no food and only basic medical treatment. One of the worst affected areas is the southern port of jeremie, where nearly three quarters of buildings have been destroyed. Destruction is everywhere in southern Haiti. The city still trying to cope with. disaster. Thousands of houses destroyed with not enough food and drinking water. At the local hospitals, doctors say they are desperate for help. TRANSLATION: We do not have anything, no bandages, no penicillin. We have to send people home.

No X-ray machine that can confirm injuries. TRANSLATION: I am in pain, my leg hurts but I am not sure what is wrong. Disease is also a serious threat. The fear is the spread of cholera. Thousands of people have ready died because of this disease. Around 12 people in this room have cholera, five are children. This Friday morning, one of them died. This man's house was destroyed and is worried about the future.

and is worried about the future.
But was worries him the most is not having enough to eat in the next month. TRANSLATION: We have not enough food, now we lost our crop, trees that give us mangoes and coconuts. I do not know what we are going to do. Slowly aid has started arriving but it is not enough for local residents who are hoping for more. The Government and UN have coordinated health. Everyone in Haiti needs to learn from past mistakes according to authorities. There is a large relief effort not what doing mainly is to focus on the need for coordination. We do not want to repeat the experience of confusion of 2010. Desperation and need have taken over southern Haiti. Men, women and children are waiting for aid.

are waiting for aid.
many. This week the UN delivered a scathing report into Nauru and Australia's failure to help children in detention centres. It cited failures to properly investigate children attempting suicide and self-harm, as well as corporal punishment. And a lack of clean drinking water. South Australian senator Sarah Hanson-Young held the immigration portfolio for the Greens for nine years. And she joins us now to talk about these latest developments, as well as the week that was in politics. Thank you for coming in.Thank you for having me.Your reaction to this report from the UN.It is damning it is is one in a long line. What this report says and the fact it comes with the authority of the UN is significant, particularly given global leaders are talking about the Australian model, what it means, is it good, is it bad? We are effectively torturing children. Degrading treatment is an offence under the torture agreement. The denial of plan drinking water. These are basic denials. Let alone to a child who has fled a war zone. It beggars belief that we still have in this country political leaders to justify that treatment of children as border policy response. Australia has to change its way with how we are dealing with people. The world is watching. The new UN head, formerly from the refugee agency, I do not think he will look kindly to Australia going or what. It was never in pressed. -- going forward. Is the challenge with this arrangement that the onus is blurred in terms of the role Nauru has to play and the role Australia has to play?We have effectively tried to outsource the treatment and brutality of these people, these children. International law says you cannot do that. You cannot pay the money, pay the contracts and say it is not your responsibility any more. There is very squarely the responsibility of the Australian government. Of course, the Nauru nation should consider their role. Do they really only ever want to be known as the prison island that tortured children? As time goes on history will look at this period very poorly.Papua New Guinea, Manus Island, was found guilty. Deportation may begin but the question remains, where do these people go?It is Australia's responsibility to overtake them find somewhere else. -- either take them. These are people, they are not commodities. They have been stuck in detention camps for nearly four years. Some are broken. It is time we cut our losses. If they have family elsewhere, perhaps we find a way for them to be reunited in other countries but just forcing them away, saying they are not our responsibility is not going to cut it.P&G is still going to keep one detention centre open despite the ruling?On a Manus Island there are to facilities. The detention camp and an area, the transiting refugees. Effectively they are both detention camps and you would have to imagine that under the reading of the rule of law from the Supreme Court decision, the second will not be able to stay open either.In other news this week, we had the Parliamentary hearings into the banking sector and we heard from the leaders of the big banks and the amount of contrition has been hurt among what has been said this week. We had the proposal for a tribunal. We doing enough that scrutiny is exercised?The same public know well and truly they are being done over and screwed by the big four banks. They are sick of paying fees and given a raw deal when it comes to credit cards. You go to the ATM and you get charged ridiculous amounts of money out of the bank because they have closed down their branches. Everybody knows that the banks are getting the good end of the deal. The biggest profits in the OECD and the public are losing out. They did nothing to alleviate concerns. It gave the CEOs of those banks to have a bit of a PR stunt and some of the public trust issues but I do not think they have done a good job. The tribunal... The fact the banks want it says everything you need to know. The calls for a broader inquiry or commission type inquiry is still live on the table. What we saw for the banks -- from the banks this week is they have an scripless behaviour with no consequences. -- unscrupulous. A bill needs to be introduced that will establish a parliamentary commission of inquiry is because the Government will not move on a Royal Commission said the Parliament has the power to step in and establish something very similar. We will be putting that to the Parliament and there is a chance we can get it through the Senate. Many people are very concerned about this and not impressed about how the banks have behaved during the week and then the pressure will be on what happens in the House of Representatives. The Government only has a one seat majority there and we know that people are nervous about how this is playing out in the electorate. Every MP, whether Liberal, Labor, Coalition, green, everybody knows the public is not happy.I do want to get you on one other topic which involves your state, South Australia.It is a great state. Remember that slogan, heaps good (LAUGHTER).The blackout. Huge political stout. Security now back on the agenda.Firstly, let me say, it has been a pathetic display of politicking over this issue. We saw our state plunged into darkness and in the missed where we had volunteers and services trying to help, some politicians, like Nick Xenophon and other members, use this as an opportunity to attack renewable energy and of course it wasn't wind farms or solar panels and that created this, it was a massive storm, the biggest in 50 years and so the aftermath has been fascinating to watch. Very disappointed from Malcolm Turnbull. People thought that he would be much stronger in defending renewable energy, in understanding that is where we need to go not just in the near future that long-term. We have to re-energise the energy sector and deal with global warming. People are sitting there thinking, I thought he believed in climate change and now here is kicking renewable energy. We are at the end of the agreed system, the National grid system and we need to tackle that. We need more investment in storage, back to storage and another project that has been begging for support four months, the thermal plant in Port Agusta. It is the power of the future. $100 million from the Government would get the project off the ground. They want to talk about energy security- Matri and solar thermal is where we should be going. -- battery.Thank you very much.

Let's take a look at the satellite. A trough and cold front is moving over southeast WA and South Australia is generating showers, strong winds and thunderstorms, with gusty showers advancing over southern NSW, Victoria and Tasmania. A weak trough over south-east QLD and north-east NSW is triggering showers. Looking around the country, light showers in the far north of Queensland. Hot in the west, warm in the east. In New South Wales, light isolated showers over northern rivers. Warm throughout the state, hot in the west. A late gusty cool change following a warm day in Victoria. Showers developing over the southern parts. Heavy showers over western parts of Tasmania. A cool change is expected later. Hot in the north of South Australia, a cool change in the west and south is expected with showers along the coast. Showers over southern parts of WA, heaviest in the south-east. Hot to very hot in the north, cool in the southwest. Hot to very hot throughout the Northern Territory. Thundery showers in the far north. Looking ahead to tomorrow's forecast for the capital cities, possible showers in Sydney, Canberra, Hobart and Melbourne. Sunny in Perth and Brisbane. Showers in Adelaide. Mostly sunny in Darwin.

The top stories from ABC News: Donald Trump has vowed to remain in the race for the White House, despite calls for him to withdraw. Trump's been under pressure after a tape emerged of him making lewd sexual comments about women. He's apologised for the comments, saying there is "zero chance he'll quit" and he was getting "unbelievable" support. Hurricane Matthew has made landfall on the US coast in South Carolina, after killing almost 900 people in Haiti. The storm's been downgraded to a category one hurricane, but could still cause serious inland flooding. At least four people have died in Florida, with more than a million households losing power.

A Saudi-led coalition airstrike has hit a funeral hall in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, killing at least 82 people. The rebel Houthi-run government says more than 500 people have been injured. Houthi rebels are at war with the Yemeni government, which is backed by a Saudi-led military alliance.

Sydney FC have continued their unbeaten run against Western Sydney with a 4-0 win last night at Sydney's Olympic stadium. Sydney striked twice in the last five minutes. Meanwhile the Central Coast Mariners have fought back from a three-goal half-time deficit to tie with Perth Glory overnight in Perth.

Speed kills. It's a message every police force and state government around the country hammers home with tough penalties for anyone who breaks the law. But it seems if you're a top cop, those rules don't apply. A high ranking NSW police officer has been caught driving almost 45 kilometres per hour over the limit and was let off with a caution by a highway patrol colleague. To take a look at this and what else is in today's papers, we're joined now by Sunanda Creagh from the Conversation. Good morning. Lovely to have you with us for the papers. Let's start with that story, I believe that is the Telegraph.It is a story that will leave many of us smiting who have been caught for speeding. In New South Wales, if you are speeding 30 climate is over the limit, you are normally subject to a 3-month suspension of your license, a fine of over $1300, and a range of other penalties -- 30km. There was a superintendent caught speeding in giving an official warning. Basically let off with a caution. The New South Wales police are quoted in this story saying they will review the matter, but that is as much as we know now. We don't know what that review will find yet. It doesn't sound like it is the right approach. It can't be role for one and another for others. -- rule. It will not pass the pub test. Police are still in the limelight with some of the other stories this morning. A story regarding homophobia claims in particular. This case centres on Newtown, three police officers there. There is also another person who is a partner or one of those please officers he used to work at the station. They allege they have been subject to discriminatory investigations, that they have been placed under surveillance and given what the newspaper describes as random drug tests and really targeted as part of a drug investigation. They believe unfairly. They have filed a claim the New South Wales administrator of tribunal to try to get access to the investigation file, and it is also the case that the antidiscrimination board of New South Wales is looking into this case as well.Have the New South Wales police have any reaction so far to these claims yet?As far as I know, they are denying it was an unfair targeting. But we do not know much so far about it. Interesting. Both stories seem to point on who is keeping an eye on the police when they are keeping an eye on us.It is an unfortunate date for those two stories to come out on the same day.We are still talking about the trailblazer Rebecca Wilson and her legacy. Sad news this week about her shocking and unexpected death.An absolute giant of the journalism industry. A fantastic sports journalist. She died of breast cancer. The Herald is reporting today that clinicians are bracing themselves for a new wave of women seeking tests for breast cancer. They say it is the case whenever a celebrity dies or is identified as suffering from one of these types of diseases, they do expect people to come in for extra tests. We saw that when Kylie Minogue had her breast cancer scare. Christina Applegate, Angelina Jolie. The experts quoted in the story say there among people, women aged under 40 are not recommended to get mammograms, if you have concerns, get it checked out with your doctor. A timely reminder. Another issue relating to women's health is a story we are seeing around the homebirth situation. Some of the consequences that have come out of situations there.Yes, this story in the Telegraph is focused on free birthing, which is where women give birth at home with no medical experts present at all, not even a homebirth midwife. They say in general across Australia, homebirth constitute about 1% of all births, but in Byron Shire, it is up to three times that. That is homebirth. But with free birthing, they focus on sad stories of women who gave birth at home against what you would consider the best advice. In one case they profiled, the baby was lying transfers and it was a high-risk situation. That woman gave birth at home with no practitioners and the baby passed away -- transverse. This is a cautionary tale especially in those high-risk cases. It is not recommended at any time, free birthing, but especially not in high risk analysis.Another story in the paper has exclusive about who sponsored Kevin Rudd's move for the UN top job -- pregnancy.His ill-fated move. At the time, it was unclear who his secret backer was. It is now, it was the president of Botswana. Who knew? The Telegraph is reporting he was the secret backer and Malcolm Turnbull to put forward Kevin Rudd is a good candidate. It would appear that was all for nothing because the UN Security Council has recommended Portugal's Antonio Guterres for the top job. But it is interesting to see what happened in the lead up.It doesn't shine a good light on Australia some of the argy-bargy with Kevin Rudd seeking the nomination. But overall, this is a conversation topic with the commentators yesterday. People agree Antonio Guterres is considerably a wonderful candidate. Yes, from what I have read, he seems to be a good candidate. Very well respected. A disappointment to some people who had been campaigning for a female head of the UN, Secretary General. But by all reports, he seems to be a very established in good candidate.Wonderful to have you with us to talk about the papers. Thank you very much.Thank you.Russia has moved nuclear weapons close to the border. They are capable of hitting targets up to 40km away and are part of routine military drills in its westernmost conclave, they claim. He has been -- Bay has been tension after Estonia and other countries claimed Russia have violated their airspace. Since Crimea was annexed by Russia, fighting has brought the two countries back to the brink of war. On the dusty flatlands of northern Premier, there is little evidence of a geopolitical incident. And in early August, something happened in this village. It resurrected fears of large-scale conflict between Ukraine and Russia. This is what Russia's of men says took place, and Russian TV Julie reported -- Russia's media. One Russian officer was killed in a firefight. Two nights later, more Ukrainian raiding attempts were starved and another Russian die. He suspects were shown on the news channels admitting all. But at the United Nations, Ukraine denied it as a Russian government man affected provocation.Under a made up projects, the Kremlin is undertaking another hybrid special operation with the aim to justify its future aggressive actions against Ukraine.The accusation of Ukraine and its Western sympathisers is that at least since the annexation of Crimea early in 2014, Russia has chosen to shine the light, operating mainly in the shadows. It is possible we will never find out exactly what happened at the beginning of August, that is by design. Regardless of what might or might not have taken place, Russia followed those incidents with a sharp increase of military activity in and around Crimea. A message perhaps for Ukraine and the West. Tanks, artillery and troops immediately went on the move, dominating in a series of military drills involving 120,000 soldiers. It was pretty much Russia's for Arsenal on display, suggesting NATO was the hypothetical adversarial, with the Black Sea region being the main theatre of war.20,000 mobilised, that is a big war. Maybe regional war. Say Russia, Ukrainian, but that is very serious. So this was a test of the ability to mobilise, to move in forces, preparation for a massive air action, say.But it is likely there was a domestic audience in mind as well. Russia's government had a message for its people. Ukraine and the West White not like it, but Crimea is Russia now and it won't be giving up without a serious fight -- might not like it.

Nobel prizes have been awarded for important scientific breakthroughs such as the discovery of penicillin. And making the history books for chemistry this year, the prize has gone to the developers of molecular machines. Sounds fascinating. But let's also spare a thought for the very dedicated research being done by those on the fringes of science and recognised with the Ignobels. So, who better to talk us through this year's recipients, than Dr Karl, our very own Ignobel prize winner.

Ig-nobel a full staff that should not done awful things that should not be done. Example your belly button fluff and why it should be blue!What have we had on offer this year? In one case we had rats in tiny trousers?Because Egyptian reductive person was interesting in what effect synthetic clothing had on male sexual activity. So they made little trousers for the rats. If they were totally synthetic, sexual activity went down. Cotton, normal sexual activity.Can we infer much from the Sample size?No. You need to do it again to see what happens stop there was a correlation between different types of fabric... He was measuring electric fields of 400 volts per centimetre which I was thinking, why do not day discharge? Because we are wet and sticky. We have to do further research.The price for psychology was to do with behaviour pattern to do with age and lying?Like many things in life, strength, resistance to diseases, so in this study people said more lies when they were adults -- when they were children. And told less lies as adults. Anything you do with the brain is more complicated than anything to do with the universe and the big bang.Let's have a look at the prize for economics - this touched on marketing and brand personality.Brand personality, a theory going back to the 50s, he looked at a brand and you think, it is confident but that might be a strong farmer. It was made up by a guy who totally invented the fraudulent theory of subliminal advertising. Every 50,000 frame showed subliminal advertising and is what he made it up. He came up with this theory, you had a choice of saying the seat is confident or not so confident so the theory was through marketing but, on the other hand, a New Zealand psychologist tested it with rocks and at the end they said, probably this theory is built on sand and has no validity but on the other hand the industry will still use them.(LAUGHTER) let's have a look at one more. This one I ink, if the Ig-nobel for physics - like polarisation and the behaviour of flies?This is an Hungarian team and they looked at horse flies. You have horses of different colours and you think about the White horse. A lion could see a flight really easily so why on earth would horses be light and they looked at the polarised light coming off any is used by the fly to find the horse. There is very little polarised light so white horses are virtually invisible to flies. They also looked at polarised light with dragonflies. They are looking for water. The polarised light coming off water is virtually identical to that coming off black polished tombstone said they would land there, but they would gradually dehydrate to death because they should be drinking but they are not. Remember that song, the monster mash, instead of being a splash it is an tombstone smash.They are very fascinating but do they serve any real purpose?Yes, they do. Last year an Australian winner worked out to unboil and egg. Mate, he cannot unboil it that he worked it out. That technology is now used to make incredibly complicated molecules. If you think of pharmacy, for certain rare diseases, individual doses cost a lot of money but his technology, from Flinders University, means you can bring the prize down. Maybe the Ig-nobel is not being as the Nobel prize but...Let's stick to boarding and egg and leave it at that. Time now to talk sport with Nick Lockyer. And it was a pretty nerve-wracking performance from the Wallabies this morning. Very nervous. They ended up getting over the line and finished second on the ladder in the rugby championship that it was an ill disciplined performance. They played with 14 men for 10 minutes because two players sent to the Bean scene for high tackles. Some poll penalty kicking.

tackles. Some poll penalty kicking.
-- sin bin.

Some concerns coming out of this match. One was the disciplinary aspect. But they play New Zealand where they have not beaten New Zealand in 30 years, at Eden Park. The world champions were at their absolute best this morning. They beat the Springboks 57-15. Nine tries to lot and that allowed them to equal their world record of 17 test records. Hard to see the Wallabies winning. That is daunting. They were scary this morning.What about the A-League? A huge crowd as anticipated for the Sydney derby?We expected 60,000 fans, I did not know whether it would happen but 62,000 packed Olympic Park for the Sydney derby and barely a neutral supporter. It was fantastic. There has been a lot of talk in the lead up that they hate each other and it came across in the first half. That blue really got the crowd going. After the break, Sydney FC went absolutely berserk, full advantage of the opportunities it was delivered. That freekick was outstanding. The captain finished off a 4- zero win.

off a 4- zero win. COACH Graham Arnold spoke about a lovely story which inspired the victory.I had a beautiful text this morning from a kid, Gaby, who sat next to me last year during the derby, who has cancer. It was a beautiful text about how he would be watching game and that this type of game result gives him reason to live and I read that too the boys before the game and you could see the hunger on their faces.That boy, they dedicated to win to him.Who is starting at poll?Jamie Whincup. It will go through to 530 say you have plenty of time to snooze between the start and the end. Jamie Whincup will be hard to beat. He has been the fastest all weekend. A 4-time champion as well stop a bit of talk that there is a curse on the poll winner because only one poll driver has won the race since 2003. Scott McLaughlin and Chaz Mostert also second and third on the grid.Let's talk tennis. Nick is keeping up his good form?We saw and in between the leg shot. He moved through to the final of the Japan open with a straight sets win here. It was great to see. Is playing some really good tennis. I am a big fan of Nick Acra one.- played them all fast forward. It would end quicker. (LAUGHTER). When they you want to get to your Sunday drinks but it's OK, not too long to go.Calling time. Thank you for joining us.We will be back at 1080 and on News 24. Stay with us right now for This program is not captioned. The top stories from ABC News: Republican leaders across the United States have called on Donald Trump to leave the race for the White House, after a tape emerged of him making lewd sexual comments about women. But the controversial businessman stands defiant and vowed to continue his presidential race. He's apologised for the comments, saying there is "zero chance he'll quit" and he was getting "unbelievable" support. Hurricane Matthew has made landfall on the US coast in South Carolina, after killing almost 900 people in Haiti. It's feared the now category-one storm could still cause serious inland flooding. At least ten people have died in the US, with more than a million households losing power.

Good morning, welcome to Insiders. We starts with the sensational development in the US presidential race. Donald Trump has been caught on video bragging about how he kissed and gropes unsuspecting women. The Republican Party is now in crisis with Trump insisting he'll stay in the race, despite the enormous damage, and the party almost powerless to do anything about that. Here now is part of the tape from 11 years obtained by the Washington Post. It comes with a warning, it's disgusting.

So, we go straight to the Sunday papers and deal first with this issue, Katharine Murphy, Phil Coorey and Chris Uhlmann. You can say without question, we have never seen a presidential race like this one. The Age call it is the tipping point.If the this isn't the tipping point, there never will be one. It's not what we think, the reaction to this, which is telling. We got senior Republicans and high-profile Republican supporters now in US saying that enough is enough. And either withdrawing their support altogether for calling for Trump to step aside or for something to be done. It's the biggest development yet in what's been a massive campaign. Have you to wonder, I was there a couple of weeks ago, watching this up close while the Prime Minister was in America, and this was a view that nothing would shake his base. Because his base is prepared to accept his excessive things.If he on, it will be the most unsided election since Reagan's in 84. He did not apologise. He did express regret. He said, I never said I'm a perfect person. Keep mind tomorrow is the second debate. This will draw record numbers. What will his tactics be?Isaid some foolyish. There's a big difference between the words and actions of other people. Bill Clinton has abused women and Hillary has bullied, attacked and shamed and intimidated his victims. See you on the debate on Sunday. That's breathtaking. (LAUGHS) It's no words, Barry. Just no words. He is going to come out swinging. Obviously. That's what Trump does. He inhasn'ts his hyperaggressive, post-truth, say whatever you want, take no prisoners universe. We all in Australia ought to send everything we know in the US a giant pair of noise-cancelling head phones in order to get through the next 3 days. Doubtless, appalling things will be said. And it will be interesting, though, if he really takes on Hillary on this personal such in the debate setting. How she responds to that.She's got a lot of time to think about it.It puts her in a spot.The terms of how you respond to it. But it's just, I mean... My god!Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California has tweeted:

So Donald Trump, you can consider yourself terminated. Then again, is he? What is the mechanism? What is open to the Republican Party. There is no formal mechanism for getting rid of a candidate. The other time they can replace a candidate was in 1912, when James shermian died in October and still had his name on the ballot papers. In the US, the people vote for a college, which then vote for the president. So there's a couple of things that could happen. He should be shamed out of the nomination. He has identity got to die or resign. Could enough pressure be put on him, moral pressure by Republicans and you mention Arnold Schwarzenegger, John McCain said he had withdrawn his support. But Donald Trump's behaviour concluding with his boasts about sexual assaults make it impossible to continue to offer conditional support for his candidacy. John McCain has a lot of moral pers situation. But I don't think that moral pressure will have any effect on Donald Trump. And but the moral pressure is piling up. This is what his running mate said about him in a tweet: then he adds this cryptic comment in the end. And then Mitt Romney, the 2008 Republican candidate, this is the most recent one, 2012, Mitt Romney, his campaign manager is urging people to withdraw their money from Donald Trump. And then Mitt Romney tweeted:

And Paul Ryan too, the house speaker, who is widely tipped to be the next Republican presidential candidate in 4 years, if Hillary wins this time. A couple of weeks ago, he reluctantly endorsed Trump. The whole establishment is against him.But these people, I mean, Romney has been script throughout the campaign. But, these people like Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz, who have waxed and waned and crawled sort of in a quizling fashion to try to make some accommodation with this appalling indefensivable candidate. There's other races. There's hundreds of races. The house and the Senate. What damage, so the people who may be rustling Trump, may want to break the system. There's a vote for Trump, a vote about breaking the system. Some people don't care what he says or does. But a whole bunk of Senators and congressman now considering their future. And don't forget, the Republican base, large parts of are Christian. What is the Christian response? To this kind of degraduation of women. The halfway decent candidate. Hillary Clinton says that she has both a public and private position. She talks about in her dreams, she would love America to have open trade and open borders. They are not career ending. Imagine how the comments woo be exploited if it wasn't for Donald Trump's contribution. Huw Parkinson has delivered another video on this exceptional presidential contest with some inspiration from the Avengers.

Well you try to act holdier than Thou, it really doesn't work. So that's coming up straight after the interview. The guest is Chris Bowen. A quick look at authority item in the papers. It's all been revealed. We know who it was that sponsored Kevin Rudd to be secretary-general of the UN. It was global powerhouse botsiana. I guess it doesn't matter. Botswana offered to sponsor Rudd after he was rejected by Turnbull. And Turnbull said, do what you like. But we're not going to back him. It's all very academic now. I mean, the formerese PM is the new guy. And straw dogs. It's not going to happen. It does show the tensasty of Rudd. He was going to explore every option to get this job. Coming up shortly, or program guest, Chris Bowen, have the major domestic topic was the appearance of the four bank bosses before the parliamentary committee. How listen, you all got your hoverboards and your fuzzy shoes. The chiefs in charge of Australia's top 4 banks are about to subject themselves to hours of questions from federal politician its.I declare open this hearing in the House of Representatives, standing committee on economics.We come here today with a spirit of openness.Every single one of you who has appeared before, is involved in this bad behaviour.It's sort of very, sort of bloky, you know, adult entertainment, drug taking, all that sort of stuff.The trust gap has opened up.I'm ashamed.No one company or individuals benefit.It almost seems like the bank CEOs have read off a script written by Mr Turnbull.I said before how sorry I am.I have apologised.I say so again today. And do so again. We have made mistakes and we apologise for those.I suspect they want to say, we want to get back to business as usual, you have taken up enough of our valuable time.We will ensure that we put our mistakes right. Call my cynical, but I think that's a lot of spin. Sorry doesn't cut it.There were places where NAB planners have forged client signatures or manipulated the files.How many senior executives were terminated as a result this. I don't think there's any.Was any employee of CommInsure or other parts of your origins sacked?There's a range of disciplinary action?Is that a yes or a no?What you do have to do at the Commonwealth Bank at senior levels to lose your job.400,000 customers charged an incorrect fee. The terms of consequences for the mistake? I call recall on that particular one.

All of these banks CEOs keel saying year sorry, we stuffed up, we got it wrong. Haven't they just made the final argument in favour of a banking royal commission?Like a pirate's parrot, she say the same thing, have a royal commission, have a royal commission.They are practically spoon feeding the CEOs of the banks to avoid a royal commission.What is your attitude towards a banking tribunal?We would be open to that.Absolutely, we would. No issue with a banking tribunal.A speedy, low coast way for people to resolve their complaints.The government openly colluding with the banks.We are taking action right now. And that's what Australians expect. We're governing, Labor is talking.Give the people of Australia what they want, which is a royal commission. Chris Bowen, good morning, welcome. Good morning, Barry.This week parliamentary inquiry put a spotlight on the banks' failings. But in the end, it didn't take a royal commission to do it.What we saw was a hearing which was on ol by and short on solutions. For the executives, its appears that sorry is the easiest word to say, but for Malcolm Turnbull, royal commission are the hardest words to say. We know that we need an eminent retired judge with the assistance of a special Council, with all the powers of a royal commission to get to the heart of matters, of culture, of remuneration, the financial services sector, not just the big 4 banks, to ensure that we've got a financial services sector working for the best interests of Australians. This was a stunt and a distraction by Malcolm Turnbull to avoid a royal commission. It's the latest in a long line of stunts and distractions by Malcolm Turnbull for somebody who just appears to be singly incapable of recognising that it's time for a proper examination of the conduct of Australia's banking financial services industry.Shorten has written to all people that Labor is more determined than ever to get a royal commission across the line. What can they do?A royal commission can only be called by the executive. We'll continue to use, as we have done, all the avenues of both houses of Parliament to put our case. Independents and crossbenchers by and large agree with us on the case, because the case is a strong one and we'll continue to talk to them.Is there anything inside you that say the politics in play and it's a step too far, and in fact, it ignores the facts the banks play a very important part in Australia's economy?It wasn't a decision taken lightly. It's not a decision we took quickly. It was a decision taken over a long period of time when the evidence mounted. Now, take for example, the latest proposal for a banking tribunal. Now, this is just the latest diversion. Malcolm Turnbull should be honest with people and say, there's already a banking and financial services ombudsman. What would this achieve in? The banks would have very substantial resources for their legal teams, for his banking tribunal, and the victims of banking mispractice have no resources. This is not the answer. A royal commission would be able to, in a thorough, mature and sensible way examine all the problems and instances that have got us this far, and sensible ways forward.You dot a lot of work trying to build bridges with the business community. What if they say this is indicative of Labor, you're trying to play hard ball for advantage?But the Labor Party has a job to do to ensure that the Australian corporate environment works in the best interests of all, and a royal commission is a very sensible way of achieving that, of working through the issues, of having an examination as royal commissions have done in the past, examinations of complex and detailed matters and making good structural recommendations for a financial services sect that is strong, profitable, but not based on a poor practice, a poor culture of exploitation of vulnerable Australians.But the backpackers tax, are you comfortable with the rate that they have leveried?Think has been a schmozzle for beginning to end. And they have completely buggered this from the beginning. What I'll be recommending, we take our time to allow consultation. It's clear the government has done no consultation on the passage movement charge. We should allow people to have their say. They expects us to say that we've got it right now. The government may want it passed this week, but they will taken 18 months to get to this point, so we'll take our time to make sure our response is based on good policy, proper consultation and there should be a process through the Parliament to allow it to occur.You're letting them squirm a bit rather than come to a decision on your own part. Pretty much the tactic you're take being the plebiscite.We are going through the proper processes. A lot of people affected by the backpacker tax and the passenger movement charge. The government has got this so wrong at every turn, from Joe Hockey, to Scott Morrison, we need to they have got it right this time. We are leaving open our options sensible outcome for a good policy. Tourism and agriculture are affected by these changes. They should have the time for us to examine the case on this particular matter. This week though, will take a position against or for a plebiscite? This will be discussed by our caucus on Tuesday. I imagine that Bill Shorten will make a recommendation to the caucus. There's no secret that we are deeply concerned. The reasons are multiple. Whether it's the cost, which is a certain, the impact on the wellbeing of young Australians in particular, who are same-sex attracted. Whether it's the diversion through what we should be doing, through a referendum, something that only a referendum could achieve. Now, IBM has taken the approach that we -- Bill has taken the approach that we should take a measured approach through this. He has met with plebs of the gay and let's bin -- with members of the gay and let's bin community. It's a big discussion and it's right that of we've taken our time to do so. Ford has built their last car in Australia. You said you warned the country against a return to protectionism. How do the 2 positions square up? Entirely because I've made 2 speeches. The case for openness and the case for the middle class. I made the point we need to ensure an open economy and open borders, that immigration and trade are good for our nation, but the very importantly, fairness cannot be lost and people on middle incomes are feeling squeezed. We had wages growth at record lose, and we need to ensure that trickle down economics is rejected and the case for the middle class is really the case for inincludesive growth, ensuring that all benefit from the growth, in the regions, in the suburbs, not just the big cities. This is the point I'm making. The case for openness cannot be won by spin and tactics. Ensuring that we've got an economy that is working for all. People in South Australia, in central Queensland and Tasmania, they sent clear messages the economy is not working for them and we need to insure we've got approaches to economic growth so that every Australian can contribute and every Australian can benefit. Not having it focused on sectors that can be successful, while other sectioners have failed.But then, if you're saying we should resist a return to protectionism, you would not have thrown money at Ford. I believe in the power of markets but the power of intervention by governments to ensure the middle class is growing and strong. We have proper inclusive growth right across the board. What we had, a situation where Joe Hockey goaded the car manufacturers to leave. They said these guys should leave Australia's shores. The car industry is subsidised in every nation in the world. There's not a nation where the car industry doesn't receive some sort of government support. We can centre a legitimate debate about what that support should look like. You talk about the middle accuracy and you have argued the middle classes should be driving economic growth. But where in your policies do you allow for that to happen? You're talking about wages and salary earners. Do you need to deliver more spending power to wage and salary earners.A lot of argument goes to redistribution of government policies. A lot of that should be occurring at the workplace as well. We should be having a proper robust discussion of the status of the median wage in Australia. It's middle income earners that would lose out most if penalty rates were abolished with no compensation. People lecture hard working people on Saturdays and Sundays, they should be giving up wages and salaries. That's a blow to their spending power, as well as being fundamentally unfair. My dad was a shift worker. He worked weekends and nights and Christmas Day. I look at people doing that today, why should they receive less compensation than he did for his hard work? He was a member of the hard working group of the Australian middle class. But we've got a group in Australia that no longer want that to be the case. It's partly about government policies but partly about ensuring fairness at the workplace as well. Doesn't it have to go further than raising the minimum rage and retaining penalty rates. You have to put real income in the hands of the middle classes. Without tax cuts or an increase in salaries, wage growth has stalled. No-one is propering to give them real income tax cuts.You need to take a holistic approach to the whole issue. Whether it's supporting the minimum wage and penalty rates, saying that cuts to family tax benefit below $8,000 isn't justified. We say they are not justified. We supported tax cuts at $80,000. It's about the entire policy sets. Now in these two speeches, andly be making more speeches along this teem. They have laid out the big picture approach that we'll take to economic policy making, supporting openness, freer trade, where possible, supporting the benefits of migration for Australia, and ensuring that people in the political class don't lecture hard working Australians for the need for them to tighten their belts and to do more, without taking a strong view to ensuring that economic growth is inclusive, to sectors that have been struggling and doing it tough. This as debate that we need to win. The simplistic approaches that we see from people around the world, and some people in the Australian political debate, all we need to do is put or more borders and barriers, will not cut the mustard. People are hurting, people are doing it tough. Wages growth at record lose. We can't ignore that. The Liberal approach ignores that and says we want to keep going the way we've been. We need to ensure the economic growth is inclusive for all, as well as ensuring the openness continues. This is the keeping to the Labor approach of the '80s and '90s. But investing in things like the social wage, Medicare, the aged pension in those days, ensuring the growth benefitted all.

There was an idea. Of bringing together a group of remarkable people to see if they could become somewhere more.Woo, OK. Here to save the American way. I intend to be a leader of our country that people can count on, both here at home and around the work. To make decisions but also stand up to bullies whether they are abroad or at home.When you try to act holdier than thou, it really doesn't work. This is beyond you, meatal man. When people treat you are unfairly, just turn your back or go some place else. We need to make America great again. My strongest asset, by far, is my temper. . I have a winning temper. . I know how to win.There is a person with a temperament has got a problem. You're firsted. And you have to understand I'm a business person.Remind me again how made your fortune? Why won't he release his tax returnsI will release my tax returns when she releases her 30,000 emails that have been deleted.That makes me smart. No.She doesn't have the stamina.As soon as he travels to 102 people countries.I think that Donald just criticised me for preparing for this debate. You know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be president and I think that's a good thing.Did you write the down first? Or was it off the top of your head? We tried to put the whole racist birther lie to bed. We lost control of the things we used to have control of. He shouldn't have his hands on our economy.Look at those hands. Petty and tiny.And one of the reasons the women are liking me a lot lately, because they feel I'm going to keep our country safe. Thank you. I love you too, man. It's a guy, but I love him. I love him. I love everybody here. Contrary oyour belief, you're not the superof my universe.This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs. It's All Ords. WordsYou can put half of Trump's supporters into what you call the basket of deplorables. Words matter when you run for president and they really matter when you are president. The last time that Huw Parkinson ventured into American politics. He got millions of hits on the United States. I'm suspecting the same result again. Just to bring you up to date on the polls, even before yesterday's events, sin the first debate, Hillary Clinton led by 2.3. The lead now is 4.1. And she trails in only 2 battleground states now. Donald Trump was already in trouble about that. We'll go onto the banks committee hearings now. 3 days of it. The Prime Minister insists the process itself should do the job. I have to go before the committee, what they'll be saying to their team, we got to sort these issues out. We got to deal with these concerns. We got to treat people better because when they go before the committee, they want to be able to get a bow day rather than a brick bat. It's challenging but no doubt it's inspirational.

it's inspirational.Did anybody hand out any bouckays.Labor concluded it was a worth while exercise but it didn't get to the bottom of all the issues. This shows this committee didn't have the problems to do that. Let alone give victims a say. Let alone test the adequacy of the regulators. The Coalition argument was what? It would take a few of these things over a few years to affect a change of culture. The CEOs could no longer hide behind their PAs. So both sides took out of it what the exact position they went into it. And ultimately, it didn't solve anything.What about looking at it from the public's point of view? Did it increase or reduce the pressure on the government to have a royal commission?It's about the same. I don't know there's an enormous amount of attention by the public on this. There would be on a royal commission. And you mention people's contrition by the actions they have after the act. And we know that nobody was actually sacked in senior management for the many failings of the banks. Had the banks actually changed anything if all the same people were there, that presided over all the same things. For the heart of this, almost everyone knows somebody affected by the behaviour of the banks. They want to see some retribution.Yeah, John Cleese said he is nowed the 99% of British bankers give the 1% a bad name. 43 people at one point were let go for improper practices. But no senior people.But there's no cultural problem in the banks. I agree with what others have said. In terms of the politics of it, it's kind of, I don't think it disturbed the equilibrium. People who want a royal commission in the banks would have seen nothing to assuage their desire to have a royal commission into the banks. A couple of interesting things, the government started to second clearer signals about the banking tribunal, courtesy of trying to look like you're doing something. And some interesting discussion about competition, which of course is fundamentally important in this sector to keeping the banks honest. If consumers have more power, then that will apply pressure to the banks because you can vote for your feet.Did West back let the cat out of the bag? When he was invited to talk about discussions he had with the government before the inquiry? Did those discussions also include, as one of the topics, avoiding a royal commission?Um... Not in detail.In detail? At all? Well, I think the conversation, and I don't know remember who said what, exactly, but in the course of the conversation, it would've been noted there was a proposal to have a royal commission and that the government has instigated this set of meetings. As an alternative?Well, that would be one carry to characterise it. I don't remember it being put that way.Maybe they put this way, we cannot resist the pressure for a royal commission unless you guys line up.Clearly! And that's been assumed without contest for months. That the banks said, OK, we'll cop a tribunal. We'll cop these minimum once a year hearings. Committee hearings.Turnbull, he is in mood to sacrifice any political captain for the banks anymore. If you want to call these guys back 2 or 3 times, when he really ripped into them and their culture and social licence. He washed his hands. He doesn't believe in a royal commission but he doesn't believe in defending them anymore. Unless you cop this, we are not going to stave off the pressure and the banks aren't silly and they get that. That's why the 2 things they did embrace this week, one was the tribunal, and we'll be happy to come back and appear before his committee. And the prospect of portable accounts. The first one is on the tribunal idea. What we're working towards, having one tribunal the deals with, if you like, consumer claims in a cost effective and speedy way, and a number of the banks have said yes, we'd support that tribunal. So they have come to the party.Malcolm Turnbull is so scared for the calls for a royal commission, he has rushed out and said we're going to have a tribunal. But further more, if you look at the questions this week, we saw the shameful spectacle of the elected representatives of the Australian people, the Liberal Party, checking with the banks, excuse me sir, and is alright if we can have a tribunal? It's a tribunal designed for the banks, for the banks, and implemented by their political representatives, the Turnbull government.It may have helped Malcolm Turnbull if the banks were less inclined to take the idea on. If they looked more aggrieved about it. Phil is quite right. We have this signalling one way or another for quite a period of time and it's been obvious that's what the transaction is. That you're going to have this tribunal, sonny Jim. So I agree, maybe the politics of that would've been more deftly handled. Why would the tribunal not work? It could become too legalistic. That the ordinary punter can turn up and be heard, and they face the courts. It would be part of a legal system. It would be better to have an ombudsman in a role. So the banks don't have a right of appeal beyond that. The weight of the banks money will be cancelled out.All this has to be sorted out.This review, but it would replace the roles of the 3 only bdsman at the moment, financial services, credit and the superannuation complaints. It would go those 3 roles, and a vastly expanded jurisdiction. It's all awaiting the advice of this report. But on Craig Kelli, the Liberal MP on the panel suspected it al-Hassi retrospective powers and there's no fear of an adverse cost order. If you take action against a bank and you lose, you don't get hit with a cost. If it's structured like that, it will do a lot of stuff. And it will have to have a triage function. They lost their live savings, they need to prioritise. In theory, it's a good idea, but it could be rather a large beast.The other idea is to give people portable accounts that can move more easily between the banks and the bankers themselves think this is a good idea. But... . I absolutely support that. What I'm saying, the banking systems, the payment stxs are very complicated. Changing something so profoundly embedded as the BSB and account number system will be expensive and complicated.Who will it covet?The customer. Look, Barry, it's complicated.The other CEOs weren't as resistant to it. It was a problem five years ago when Bernie Fraser had a review into it. But Turnbull said the IT is a lot better nowadays.It's not beyond the means of sorting it out. In the UK, they have got a single identifier you can carry from bank to bank.Now, a few raised eyebrows with this contribution. When they got around to talking about interest rates, how they are set, and how seriously they take the Reserve Bank cash rate.I welcome being here today. Because, in my time, I'm a proud banker. The first time I had 3 hours to talk about my profession. And we've got some time to actually have a longer conversation and one of the things I think year having a longer conversation about, how is it the banks are not passing on the so-called cash rate reduction? And what I've tried to, and I think that colleagues have tried to, we don't fund our mortgage book off the cash rate.We don't fund off the cash rate. It's a major determine nant? Actually no.They have fed sate that before! They never said straight out, we don't take much notice of the Reserve Bank crash rate.When Labor was in government, remember ANZ, after the GFC, and it was a real war, ANZ at that stage, they broke. They stopped fixing their rate movements to the cash rate. Back then, they basically said, they disconnected their rates from the cash rate. That was as explicit as they have been since. That's their business. But should have said so a while ago. Might have helped them. The other issue around all of this is sponsorship. Two the 4 major banks have ceased donating to the major political parties.In essence, we fent that the donations we were making to political parties was being miscontried, misinterpreted and in correctly. And we felt that to be clean, direct, and gie, our board decided to stop making such political payments or payments to political parties at Commonwealth, state and local levels.We're having discussions on the board about our role.If the banks want to punish the Labor Party by not making a donation to the Labor Party again, me guest.You can understand why Bill Shorten is being, you know, put out the line, my guest, because the Coalition gets twice what the Labor Party gets from banks?Absolutely. The problem for the Coalition too, their sources of funding through the business community is drying up. The other argument is over foreign donations. The Liberal Party is concerned note source of funding that will dry up for it. Serious concern it's unable to compete with the union funds anded the third party parties. They would be very worried if the banks withdrawn money. If one profession is considered so lowly as bankers they gont want to be seen associating with you, politicians. I see journalists are further down all of that.If the banks were to say, we won't give anything to the Labor Party, if we continue to donate to the Coalition. That would be better than 500,000 bucks worth of advertising to Labor.It's good. Hooray! It's good. That would be a good decision by the banks. Part of the perception problem in the whole debate is the political donations have complicated that. That's the perception. Not saying it's the reality.I think it needs something in the place. I'm a big believer in public donations. And the Liberal Party don't have the union funds and stuff. It would be good if it kick started the debate. If it kick started some sort of decision making.We've got a process where we may get a decision on this stuff. But a founded on the rock of union donations.It will founder on the rock of industrial money.The can get their own money.So many quirky elements to this whole inquiry. The chair many of the member for the electorate of Banks and Julia Banks has had an experience with the banks and she has never forgiven.If you have read my maiden speech. It was made up of different stories, and not that along ago, I was applying for my home mortgage, and a general manager, smarmy, smirky, said he would only factor into account my husband's income, not my income, because I'm a married woman of child bearing age. So you think that's a good idea that the banks would train their staff, their customer interfacing staff, in relation to unconscious bias when they are dealing with female customers and a segue onto that, would you agree it's a good idea?You never know where a scorned client is going to turn up next. On the panel. The battle of the generals. The Attorney-General versus the Soliciter-General. George Brandis insists the Soliciter-General, Justin Gleeson, get written permission from George Brandis before he gives advice to anybody, including the Prime Minister. You wonder why George Brandis would insist on this and did he appreciate the kind of political hole he was digging for himself? But the debate really centres on to what extent was Gleeson brought in on this? Did Senator Brandis consult him? And consult to the satisfaction of Gleeson.The issue here is whether there were appropriate consultations with the Soliciter-General before a legislative instrument was made by May. No one but 2 note takers took notes of that meeting which I produced to the Senate committee yesterday. And those notes show without doubt that the matter was discussed.Well, first of all, Chris, there is this convicting accounts to that. Some reports suggest the notes don't say that at all.I think the notes don't say that at all. The case for the prosecution. And the case for the defence. And they are all neatly laid out. This goes to the heart of it. Was there a discussion over a guidance note about the way the Soliciter-General should behave? Yes there was. Was there a discussion over a legally binding directive that handcuffs the Soliciter-General to the Attorney-General? I don't think there was. I will take you to one letter. It's letter to George Brandis from Justin Gleeson, seeking a meeting. We have 2 different versions. A slightly redacted copy and then a highly redacted copy by the Attorney-General. He goes on to say, secondly, the accurate public representation of the Soliciter-General's advice, that is missing from the Attorney-General's letter. If you go to the second page, it ends with a fairly large blank space, and the agenda which the Soliciter-General has attached, and in it, he talks by wasn't asked for my opinion on the revoking of person's Australian citizenship, but you said, at some stage, you told a committee there's a good prospect they will reject the constitutional challenge to the core aspects of the bill based on my advice. I wasn't asked for my advice on the release of the correspondence between Sir John ker and the keen, and not asked for my advice on marriage equality. There's a specific agenda the Soliciter-General went with. And all of that has been removed, air brushed out of the Attorney-General's account of that meeting. Didn't the Attorney-General know the Soliciter-General had released a more complete account. In You would have to think, apparently not. Release the letter.It may not be too, verbally may be too strong a word, the way that George Brandis presented the letter is unfair to the Soliciter-General. It's a very incomplete picture of the beef. The government is professing it doesn't know what the Soliciter-General is upset. His advice is not being sought on legal matters because it's not advice the government wants to hear or have seen in the public market place.He painted himself into a corner. How does this end? Is It ends with the Attorney-General saying he did nothing wrong and refusing to stand down and the Prime Minister not going to sack him. Because that is what happens. It's clearly an unworkable relationship now. That's the point.There's a forward mechanism if it does pan out this. The committee, investigating these matters, I think, will meet early this coming week. They'll make a decision about whether or not to call Gleeson before it. And if Gleeson appears, we can be almost certain that Senator Brandis will also appear at this inquiry, and some of these condictry accounts will be married up. I will be buying popcorn for that.That he didn't consult them?They talked about the guidance note. The directive is the one that legally binds the Soliciter-General. That is the one the Soliciter-General was not consulted over.The energy ministers have met in the wake of the power failure in South Australia. They got a good result in the sense they'll be, you know, having a sensible independent review of the whole thing by the Chief scientist. But the minister, the minister for energy, Josh Frydenberg, said the primary responsibilities for the government, energy security, stability, affordability. What is missing there Our commitments. Paris commitments. Forget about just saying it's desirable to decarbonise. The fact of the matter is, the Federal Government has made specific commitments that behind Australia to certain actions and they can't be air brushed away. These are commitments the government itself has made and the government has not produced a medium, a credible medium term pathway for achieving those emissions. Everything that Frydenberg said is quite right. Of course, nert security is important. Of course, voters are entitled to expect that electricity is affordable. Of course, users of the electricity systems need to have an expectation that the system will be reliable. But the government itself has made a number of commitments to reducing our emissions and if they don't clean up the electricity sector, not to put too fine a point on it, we're stuffed.We're stuffed if we don't pay attention to the engineering problems. This is an issue that I pay particular attention to, since Sunday week ago, 3 days before the blackout. There's a question about the reliability of the grid when it has large scale renewable energy on it, particularly wind. South Australia has now 40% of the wind. That makes it a test case in the world.You're talking about the putting the renewables into an old grid.This is not saying there shouldn't be renewables. It's whether or not that's made the grid more fragile. I think that undeniably it is the case. We know from the report that we received this week, that 315 megawatts of wind power dropped off the grid.We don't know why.We're now being told it was a software problem with the wind power.We there's no denying the fact there's a problem with frequency control, and there's a problem with intermilitant si.Of course. I said at the out set, of course, that it's security, intermittent si, these are all things they need to look at. Of course, the particular energy mix in South Australia makes it's an interesting test case. All those things are givens. It's midmisleading to suggest why the wind...We know that 315 megawatts dropped.Even Alan Finkel said, the Australian energy market operator said there's a problem.There's a problem across the spectrum. There's a problem across the spuck trem. There's an a problem with wind and a frequency problem. There's also a carbon intensity problem with coal. The bottom line, the way the system is set up at the moment. What will be driven out of the mix will be gas, and what will stay in the mix will be coal.But not if you have a sensible carbon pricing.And that's a problem we agree on.Just about to go to talking pictures. Will Mike Baird walk away from the greyhound decision?Is he in trouble? The report says he'll be softening his position. I don't know how you soften your position. You either have it or you don't. It's time now for Mike Bowers and talking pictures. I'm Mike Bowers and I'm a photographer at large for the Guardian Australia. On talking pictures this week, with Zoe Norton Lodge from the Story Club podcast and the Checkout. Welcome to the program. They say that the clothes maickth the man, it seems budgie smugglers make the man.I'm sure the Malaysians will adore that, as much as they adored it in the first place.You need to be monumentally stupid, you think in the back of your head, perhaps stripping off to my budgies is not a great idea? They have learnt now. If they do it again, then, we'll have some serious words to them. Now, this to me, is disturbing tweet of the week.Maybe if we lose -- if he loses some weight, we can see them.Tony Abbott was hinting there's a tone back. Yeah, his atonement, perhaps. I had to sneak it in. I just like to say, I harbour no desire, despite the persistent and flattering calls to return to what some may rightfully call my place as PM. Budgie smugglers are our national dress. This is why he thinks he is coming back. He has become the single biology of national -- symbol dress. Liberal Cabinet room. More budgie smugglers. Looks like he found another budgie 9.He found the 9 people who believe that Abbott should bepmmm again.I think there's a -- PM again.9 is too many!A lovely little Matt Golding.Do you think he is PM again? Why not. All my policies is just where I left them!Which is the point, isn't it? The biggest bunk of bankers to ever congregate in Canberra. Who was the bigger banker? Ian Narev? He seems to be making the CommBank brand symbol with his file. That is impressive marketing. You can see why he is paid the big bucks.He is really sorry.I hope they wash their hands after all this banking.How much he has earned since you started asking these questions?The sign may be putting off the committee.I am very pleased you agreed to pay my the same week. I will let you do the honours.Back to you, you banker. I mean, Barrie.An update on the budgie 9, Jack walker, who worked for Christopher Pyne, has quit. After some encouragement from the Prime Minister. The Labor caucus meets this week. It would be a miracle if they opposed their decision to establish a sax-sex plebiscite. Derryn Hinch said he'll be wasting no more time on this issue. The whole cause will be off the agenda for at least a couple of years. On South Australia, don't listen to what politicians say. What what they'll do. They will look to fix problems of frequency. They will look to build an interconnector to New South Wales, and the price of doing business in South Australia just went up. With the risk, goes up cost.I can't say this any better than Robert De Niro. Let's hear from him.He is so blatantly stupid. He is a punk, he's a dog, he's a pig, he's a con, a bull artist, he doesn't do his homework, doesn't care, thinks he is gaming society. He's an idiot, Colin Powell said it best. It makes me so angry in this bosso has wound up where he says. He talks how he likes to punch people in the face. I would like to punch him in the face.Who on earth would he be talking about. Even before the overnight events, he shocked the nation with an appeal to the soon to be dead. We'll leave you with that. Thanks for watching. , I say, kiddingly, but I mean it, I don't care how sick you are... I don't care if you just came back from the doctor, and he Dave gave you the worst possible prognosis, meaning it's over. You won't be around in 2 weeks. Doesn't matter. Hang out till November eighth... Get out and vote. And then, all we're going This program is not captioned.

Making news this morning: Donald Trump rejects calls for him to withdraw from the presidential race after the leaking of a controversial video. I said it. I was wrong, and I apologise.

Hurricane Matthew makes landfall on the US coast as the death toll rises to 900 people in Haiti. Devastation as an air strike hits a funeral hall in Yemen killing at least 80 people. And Sydney FC humiliate the Wanderers in front of more than 60,000 people in the opening round of the A-league.

Hello. Thanks for joining us. It's Sunday the 9th of October. Also coming up on Weekend Breakfast: This is an extraordinary story. Australian ultra-marathoner Samantha Gash is pursuing her ultimate challenge - running 3,800 kilometres across India. Can you believe it? The 76-day feat is raising funds for millions of underprivileged children in the impoverished country. We will hear from the 31-year-old this morning about her desire to challenge herself and make a difference in the world. She is doing a phenomenal effort on both counts. We can see from the footage it is not just the distances she is covering but also the somewhat unusual unorthodox traffic in India that you can expect. She's currently at roughly around the halfway mark, 1600km. Another 1600 to go. Goodness gracious, I can't even comprehend it.It is courage. What a brave woman to do that. And somebody who has more energy than I do.I know. It makes us tired just thinking about it.

Let's check the weather in the capitals. Sydney - windy. Melbourne - windy with showers. Brisbane - mostly sunny. Perth - possible shower. Adelaide - windy with showers. Canberra - mostly sunny. Hobart - windy with rain. Darwin - sunny.

Our top stories this morning: A severe weather warning for damaging winds has been issued for Victoria, with wind gusts of up to 120km/h forecast for parts of the state. A flood evacuation warning also remains in place for residents of Ulupna Island on the Murray River. Emergency services say the area is now inaccessible, after the only road into the island was cut off by flood waters. While the water levels remain steady, high winds are expected to move into the area.

Police are forensically examining a jet ski and a boat involved in a fatal crash on the New South Wales mid-north coast yesterday. A 54-year-old woman was killed and her 8-year-old passenger injured when their jet ski collided with a boat on the Nerong inlet. The 46-year-old skipper of the boat suffered fractures to his nose and ribs. Authorities say they're still trying to determine how the accident occurred but speed is being investigated as a possible factor.

A Queensland man has appeared in court charged with murder after allegedly driving a car into a funeral in far north Queensland on Friday. Police allege Gary Paul Hudson drove a four-wheel-drive into a house of mourners at his partner's funeral at western Cape York. A 48-year-old woman was killed and at least 25 others were injured in the incident. The court heard many more charges were expected to be laid against Hudson. The 55-year-old was remanded in custody to appear in court again in November.

It's been revealed two workers walked off the job over safety concerns before a fatal accident at a Brisbane construction site. Two men were killed when a pair of 9-tonne concrete slabs fell down in a pit they were standing in at Eaglefarm Racecourse on Friday. The CFMEU says two workers from the site came forward late last week to report they'd walked off the job. One of the men reportedly told the union he thought someone was going to die at the site due to poor conditions.

A Tasmanian woman who was among a group of pro-Palestinian activists detained by the Israeli military has returned to Hobart. Madeleine Habib was captaining a boat bound for Gaza when she and her 12 female crew were detained by the Israeli navy. Ms Habib returned to Hobart yesterday afternoon after spending a day in prison and then being deported. She says she plans to continue to campaign to draw attention to the plight of women and children in Gaza.

Donald Trump has vowed to never quit the US presidential race in spite of an outcry over his latest comments about women. Members of his own party have urged the controversial businessman to step down after old video footage of him emerged boasting about groping women. The crude comments brought condemnations from high ranking Republican officials and prompted several others to withdraw their support. In a recorded apology, Mr Trump said he was wrong to make the comments and pledged to be a better man. But for one Hollywood actor, an apology wasn't enough. He's a punk. He's a dog. He's a pig. He's a con artist. He is a mutt who doesn't know what he is talking about, doesn't do his homework, doesn't care. He thinks he is gaming society. He doesn't pay his taxes. He is an idiot. Colin Powell said it best, he is a national disaster and an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry this country has got to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has. He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face. Well, I want to punch him in the face.

Nearly 900 people are now confirmed dead in Haiti as a result of Hurricane Matthew. The storm made landfall on the US coast in South Carolina overnight with authorities warning the now-category-one storm could bring serious inland flooding. At least four deaths in the state of Florida have been attributed to Matthew while more than a million households lost power. The death toll in Haiti is expected to rise as some of the remote areas are yet to be reached.

82 people have been killed after a Saudi-led coalition strike hit a funeral hall in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa. The rebel Houthi-run government says more than 500 people have been injured. Houthi rebels are at war with the internationally-recognised Yemeni government, which is backed by a Saudi-led coalition. The UN says thousands of civilians have been killed since the Saudi-led air campaign started last march.

Russia has vetoed a draft UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate end to air strikes and military flights over the Syrian city of Aleppo. The resolution was put forward to the council by France as conflict rages on in the besieged city. It's the fifth time Russia has vetoed a UN resolution on Syria during the more than five-year conflict that's left hundreds of thousands dead.

Police in Germany are searching for a 22-year-old man suspected of planning a bomb attack. It comes after traces of explosives were found during a raid of an apartment in the eastern city of Chemnitz. Police received information from Germany's domestic intelligence agency about potential attack plans, which triggered the raid. Three people who had contact with the suspect have been taken into custody. Authorities have not said where the alleged attack was going to take place.

And some centuries-old lost treasure has washed up on a beach in Poland. Locals walking along a beach in the north-west of the country stumbled across pieces a wooden boat washed ashore, believed to be from the nineteenth century. Locals say the autumn storms leave something on the beaches each year, but it's the first time they've spotted boat wreckage. The fragments will be kept and preserved in a nearby museum.

Now to sport with Nick Lockyer. A win for the Wallabies this morning, but unconvincing.Very fair to say they did not really put up their best form and against Argentina, but Argentina were pretty good this morning. The Wallabies have finished the Rugby Championship in second spot after beating Argentina in London this morning. Australia managed to take a 10-point lead into half time despite receiving two yellow cards before the break. Samu Kerevi crossed for a double. And the Wallabies held on to record 33-21 win over the Pumas. This morning, the All Blacks wrapped up the Championship with their biggest ever victory over South Africa - a 57-15 smashing which equalled their world record winning streak of 17 tests.

Sydney FC has begun its A-league season in emphatic fashion in front of nearly 62,000 fans. That is an A-League record. The Sky Blues recorded a 4-0 thrashing of cross town rival, Western Sydney. They scored all of their goals in the second half and extended their unbeaten streak in the Sydney derby to eight matches. Also last night, Central Coast came from 3-0 down to salvage a 3-3 draw with Perth and Melbourne City defeated Wellington 1-0.

Nice goal. Jamie Whincup will start today's Bathurst 1000 race from pole position after recording the fastest time in yesterday's Top 10 Shootout. He narrowly edged out Volvo's Scott McLaughlin. 2014 champion Chaz Mostert will start the race from third on the grid. That race begins in about an hour.

Nick Kyrgios is just one win away from his third ATP title. The world number 15 was at his best as he advanced to the decider of the Japan Open with a straight sets victory over Gael Monfils. He'll take on David Goffin in the final.

Perth has bounced back from its disappointing start to the NBL season with a thrilling overtime win over Cairns. The defending champions dominated to record a 10-point victory over the Taipans. Earlier, Andrew Gaze had a forgettable coaching debut with Sydney - the Kings lost to Brisbane by 4 points.

They had a tough season last year, so hopefully a little bit better... Not the start they were hoping for. Not the star at all. -- start. Good to see back-to-back wins to open their account though. And the V8 race. It begins in about an hour. Have you got any tips for meat from Bathurst? I know you love your V8 's -- been. I will tell that to the drivers. I'm sure they will be appreciative of that.Thank you for that.

Thanks for your company here on Weekend Breakfast. Still to come: Hurricane Matthew has now weakened to a category one storm as it continues to make its way along the south-eastern coast of the US through Georgia and South Carolina. Also ahead: German police have arrested three people in connection with their search for a Syrian-born man suspected of planning a bomb attack. And later: It's being called an aquaculture holy grail. Researchers in Tasmania claim they have the technology to breed rock lobster from larvae on a commercial scale.

Donald Trump has vowed to remain in the race for the White House despite calls from prominent Republicans for him to drop out. It follows the release of old video footage of the brash billionaire making vulgar comments about women, and using his celebrity status to grab women's genitals and force himself upon them. Planet America host John Barron has more.

This presidential campaign is all but over. Donald Trump called upon to step down by senior members of his own party. We have not seen this in modern political history. I can't overstate just how extraordinary this situation is. After an extraordinary year, when from the moment Donald Trump declared his candidacy and called Mexicans rapists, and within a month he was calling for a complete ban on Muslim immigration to the United States, people are saying why is this any different? The reason why is he has condoned the sexual assault of women. He has talked on a hot mic when he thought nobody was listening in a way that reveals to people his true self. This is as damaging as Richard Nixon using obscenities, anti-Semitic, anti-black comments on the White House tapes at the height of Watergate. This is the smoking gun, and unfortunately for Donald Trump, there is a lot more out there, and it is all coming out, and all of the women who for the last year have been saying "Donald Trump assaulted me, he groped me, he made me feel bad in this situation and that situation," suddenly they are being listened to in a way they were not before. The dam wall has broken. You are saying it is all over. What about the Republican campaign? Can they get someone else in there? This is being asked now at the highest levels of the party. They have already effectively decided they will withdraw the practical support. They have endorsed him as their presidential candidate, so there is a legal question whether they can withdraw that. They can withdraw the money and the personnel to make the phone calls to get out the vote to support Donald Trump. That is already being drawn back. Major donors have already said they are withdrawing their support. We have had governors and senators and senior figures like the third-ranking Republican senator of South Dakota saying they do not endorse Donald Trump anymore. This is a significant withdrawal of endorsement. But he is on the ballot paper. He will be on the ballot paper in 50 states. A lot of Republicans are thinking Mike Pence had a great debate. The vice presidential nominee. Maybe we should put him at the top of the ticket. We get Donald Trump to quit, because we can't sack him. He has to quit or die. A bit much to hope he will die. They are hoping he will quit. Does somebody like Paul Ryan, the House Majority Leader, step up and say, "I will stand as vice president to Mike Pence at the top of the ticket"? Democrats do not want that. In this craziest of years, they are not prepared to fight him. Mike Pence is neck-and-neck with Hillary Clinton if he is the hypothetical top of the ticket. He could beat Hillary Clinton right now. Donald Trump is five points down and plummeting. He could be heading for a big defeat. He could lose this by 15 points and take the Senate and the house down with him. Democrats don't want Donald Trump to quit. Republicans are trying to find their way to push him out and maybe the way to do that is to say, "Donald, you will be humiliated. You have a debate tomorrow. A town hall style debate. Half the audience are women. Imagine the questions they will ask. How would this look, you being a rampant sexist against the first female presidential nominee?" It will not look good. Hillary Clinton wanting to stay where he is. It is in her interest for him to stay until the end. He attacked at the first presidential debate for preparing. He has been preparing for this debate. When he prepare for an onslaught of questions for both the public and the moderators tomorrow about this to?The good news for Donald is it will be all about Donald. He is very comfortable when it is all about Donald. When it is about nuclear disarmament or Iran or Syria, that is when it gets tricky. When the question is about Donald, he is happy. He is probably quite says there is all this attention. We know like Elvis, Donald Trump has 10 television monitors in his bedroom and he sees his own face on it. To an extent, historically, he has called journalists who have written scathing articles about him because he saw the article was about him. He didn't read it, but said thank you for writing about me. He loves attention, which is probably why Republicans fear him. When he says he will not quit, he won't quit. We saw that at midnight at John Tower last night. He did not look like men backing down -- Trump Tower. He said the Clinton is worse than me. He actually did those things I is threatening to do. We can only imagine what that debate will look like. Hillary Clinton has been prepping for the response. What if Donald Trump goes to? He threatened to go there in the first debate and backed away. He said I was going to say something nasty, but I am too nice. Chelsea was an audience, I could not say that in front of her. It is all missed certain if he attends this debate, he will go there, and that will be probably the most remarkable moment of this incredible campaign.

Appeals are under way to try to help people hit hard in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew tore through the country. More than 800 people are now known to have died in the storm, while tens of thousands of people are now homeless - with no food and only basic medical treatment. One of the worst affected areas is the southern port of Jeremie, where nearly three quarters of buildings have been destroyed. Destruction is everywhere in Jeremie, in southern Haiti. We visited the area on Friday where, three days after the hurricane, the city was still trying to cope with disaster. Thousands of houses have been destroyed and there is not enough food and drinking water. At the local hospital, doctors say they are desperate for help. TRANSLATION: We do not have anything, no bandages, no penicillin. We had to send people home because we couldn't treat them here. Adeline apparently broke her leg but nobody can tell her for sure as there are no X-ray machines that can confirm her injuries. TRANSLATION: I am in pain, my leg hurts but I am not sure what's wrong. But there is more. Disease is a serious threat for people living here. One of the biggest fears is the spread of cholera. Thousands of people have already died because of this disease. In this room that you can see here, there's around 12 people with cholera, five of them are children. This Friday morning, one of them died. In the city, Junot Clerveau is worried about the future. His house was destroyed but what worries the most is not having enough to eat in the next month. TRANSLATION: We already do not have enough food, now we have lost our crops, we have lost the trees that give us mangoes and coconuts. I do not know how we are going to deal with this. Very slowly some type of aid has started to arrive in the area but it is not enough for local residents who are hoping for more. The Government, local NGOs and UN have coordinated aid distribution. Mourad Wahba says everyone in Haiti needs to learn from past mistakes We already had the beginnings of response. There is a very large relief effort but what we are doing mainly is to focus on the need for coordination. We would like the Haitian government to be the co-ordinating authority, we do not want to repeat the experience of confusion of 2010. Desperation and need have taken over southern Haiti. Men, women and children are waiting for aid, that many claim is taking too long to arrive.

German police have arrested three people in connection with their search for a Syrian-born man suspected of planning a bomb attack. A raid of an apartment in the eastern city of Chemnitz, where the suspect was thought to be hiding, led to the discovery of explosive materials. This is the man hunted by German police, Jaber al-Bakr. He's 22 years old, from Damascus in Syria, and German police said they had to assume he was dangerous. They believe he may have been planning a bomb attack. It was a tip-off from Germany's intelligence services that led police to him. They raided the apartment in Chemnitz, close to the border with the Czech Republic. Jaber al-Bakr had already gone, but hidden inside the property, police searches unearthed high explosives, possible evidence of a bomb being prepared. TRANSLATION: At this time, we are busy with final measures here, and we will continue our searches. But our main focus now is on the manhunt for the perpetrator, who's still on the run.

who's still on the run.
It comes at a time of heightened concern in Germany.

Three people had been taken into custody while police continue their hunt. The traditional Australian man is stoic and tough as nails or so the stereotype goes. The reality is very different. Research shows Aussie men are lonelier and more disconnected than ever. Radio presenter Gus Worland wants to understand why Australian men are feeling so low. He's hosting the new ABC documentary series 'Man Up', which aims to get to the bottom of the male mental health crisis. Did you get to answer the questions you had?I think so. We love that we are tough but we have taking it too far and we have got to a point where men showing any vulnerability, when things are going great, we are terrific in putting on a mask and do not tell anyone and that is killing us. If you are between 15 and 25, the number one way it to die is suicide. We are losing younger beautiful men every year and it comes down to blokes bottling things up and not having a pressure valve for them to express their feelings, talk about their feelings in a way that might share a problem. It does not mean that if I tell you I have an issue you have all the ads is that it starts in the conversation. You have been out on the road, what have Aussie blokes been telling you? They feel as though if they show vulnerability, they will be picked on, they will not be one of the lads. What we want to do on construction sites, in the country, you want to be part of a community, strong, the role, the one telling jokes at the pub. But even those guys are struggling because everybody thinks they do not have a problem. It is important to have someone in your life you can share your moments and get through the darker times.We communicate more than ever before but the straight man is betrayed a certain way in media. If men only ever see that one kind of betrayal, they will never change. -- characterisation.The solid body, drinking the Jews, we sit there and go, that must be how we are meant to be and that is stereotypical, absolute garbage, absolute BS. They spend millions of dollars, advertising gurus, but I go to them and say could shoot helpmeet rate down the stereotype that you have been building up and they sort of go, actually, we probably will do this by ticket thing. So we came together and put that ad campaign to gather. I trying to get them running, with no money wherever I can. But it is a huge problem and we have these fix it.I note as well you talk about boys to men, not the R&B group... (LAUGHTER). That critical transition period and how important is it to get it right?The shows starts off with me losing a friend nine years ago and it has taken me this long to even speak to his wife and family dog my son is at 16 and I can help him and his mates who I love and have known a long time. I wish I could send a thousand Tom Parker and is and send them to every school. They are smart arsaes. But beneath the surface, if you dig a little bit deeper and show you care, there are these issues of doubling and these young men are super vulnerable and they need to know they can come to you and it is a sign of strength rather than weakness. It is not as simple as that if is where we start, it is a good start and we can stop losing all these young man, more than 2000 every year.It takes a strong man, a strong anyone, to cry and to cry in front of other people.Exactly right. We give ourselves permission at sporting matches, both about children. But it is harder to work in at night time you wife or partner and say, you know, I struggling and actually shared a tear. When we speak to the ladies in the world, they want men to do that. If something is really worrying us. The relationship gets stronger and that he does have heart and feeling and you give him a cuddle and it seems to get better. We are trying to start the conversation and say it is gutsy to be vulnerable not the other way around.They do say a problem shared is a problem halved. Wonderful to have you on the program.Thank you for your support and please watch the documentary. Man Up premieres Tuesday 11 October at 8:30pm. And if you or someone you know is experiencing distress, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or if you need information or support you can contact beyond blue on 1300 22 4636.

It could be up to two years before some farmers devastated by last week's extreme flooding north of Adelaide get back on their feet. Government agencies are still trying to work out the extent of the damage, while some properties remain under water. A week may have gone by but that doesn't mean the floodwaters have. Some farmers in the northern Adelaide Plains are still battling the deluge and assessing the costs. You see, all cucumber die. You see this water like that? You can't go inside, you see, dirty water like that. The 60 greenhouses on this Virginia property went under. Apart from a few buckets, the entire crop of 50,000 cucumber plants was destroyed, worth about $100,000. What can I do now? I don't know, what I do now. With the ground saturated, farmers are relying on the water to evaporate. Pumps have been brought in to speed up the process. But it's a slow one. Still I pump, no stop, costing a lot of money. Just to give you an idea of how much water is still here, the levels in this channel have only dropped about 2cm in the last two days so it could take up to three weeks for this area to completely dry out. About 1,000 growers across the plains have been devastated by the floods after the Gawler River burst its banks. The region contributes close to a third of the state's horticultural production and about 80% of South Australia's cucumbers. The Vietnamese Farmers Association believes about 60% of cucumber crops are gone. That means we are short of cucumbers now but we hope that in the next two years we go back to business again. I would imagine given those statistics that there will be some pricing effect because obviously if we can't identify or bring local produce to market, then we'll have to seek that produce from other places. Many farmers, especially in the Vietnamese community, are registering for emergency assistance. Some say after the massive clean-up, there will be big challenges around top soil damage and disease control. We are looking at clean-up grants and also clean-up strategies whereby we'll bring in volunteers into the area and assist them to clean out the properties. Any further financial assistance to help farmers get back on their feet is still being worked through. Nicola Gage, ABC News, Adelaide.

Let's take a look at the satellite. A trough and cold front is moving over southeast WA and South Australia is generating showers, strong winds and thunderstorms, with gusty showers advancing over southern NSW, Victoria and Tasmania. A weak trough over southeast QLD and northeast NSW is triggering showers. Looking around the country, light showers in the far north of Queensland. Hot in the west, warm in the east. In New South Wales, light isolated showers over northern rivers. Warm throughout the state, hot in the west. A late gusty cool change following a warm day in Victoria. Showers developing over the southern parts. Heavy showers over western parts of Tasmania. A cool change is expected later. Hot in the north of South Australia, a cool change in the west and south is expected with showers along the coast. Showers over southern parts of WA, heaviest in the south-east. Hot to very hot in the north, cool in the southwest. Hot to very hot throughout the Northern Territory. Thundery showers in the far north. Looking ahead to tomorrow's forecast for the capital cities, possible showers in Sydney, Canberra, Hobart and Melbourne. Sunny in Perth and Brisbane. Showers in Adelaide. Mostly sunny in Darwin.

The top stories from ABC News: Republican leaders have called on Donald Trump to withdraw from the race for the White House, after a tape emerged of him making lewd sexual comments about women. But the controversial businessman remains defiant, vowing to continue his bid to become the next US president. He's apologised for the comments, saying there is "zero chance he'll quit" and he was getting "unbelievable" support. Hurricane Matthew has made landfall on the US coast in South Carolina , after killing almost 900 people in Haiti. It's feared the now Category 1 storm could still cause serious inland flooding. At least ten people have died in the US, with more than a million households losing power. Victoria's set to be hit by winds of up to 120km/h. Weather warnings have been issued across Victoria as a cold front moves from the west. Severe gusts of more than 100km/h are also likely to hit South Australia. Sydney FC have maintained their unbeaten record against Western Sydney with a 4-0 win last night at Sydney's Olympic Stadium. Meanwhile, the Central Coast Mariners have fought back from a three-goal half-time deficit to tie with Perth Glory overnight in Perth.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are gearing up for their second debate from the US state of Missouri, on Monday morning our time. But at the moment, controversy continues to surround the Republican presidential nominee, after a recording of him making lewd comments about females came to light. North America correspondent Stephanie March has more from St Louis.

Republican members of Congress and senators from Alabama, Utah, in New Hampshire have called for him to step aside and quit the presidential race. His vice presidential running partner, Mike Pence, issued a statement saying his words offended him, but he is grateful, though, that he expressed remorse. One Utah Republican summed it up as saying he only apologised because he got caught. He was not apologising for the behaviour he actually carried out in 2005. His wife, Melanie, issued a statement in his defence saying the words he has used were unacceptable and defensive, but it is not the man she knows, and she hopes people will accept his apology like she has. Let's have a listen to some of that video apology from Donald Trump that he put out on his Facebook page last night. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and will never, ever let you down. Let's be honest. We are living in the real world. This is nothing more than a distraction from the important issues we are facing today. We are losing our jobs. We are less safe than we were eight years ago. And Washington is totally broken. Donald Trump spoke to a Washington Post reporter on the phone this morning and said there is no way he is quitting. He said, "I have never withdrawn from anything in my life, why would I start now?" He says he is getting tremendous levels of support from people telling him to stay in the race, but not naming anyone specifically. If the Republican Party want to remove him by force, legal experts say that is very difficult, and it is only able to replace someone if they have passed away or are incapacitated. It could be a legal fight if they choose to remove him. If he did step down, a lot of ballot papers have been printed. It would be a huge logistical exercise to start the process again. Early voting has started in some states. Some people have cast their vote for Donald Trump, and it would be a battle for the Republican party to get those votes transferred to whoever would be the next candidate. Even conservative networks have said this may be the nail in the coffin for Donald Trump. Donald Trump said this morning he has weathered things like this before. This is just part of life. But when you have your conservative press turning against you, that is a worrying sign. It does seem this could be the end of things. I was speaking to voters in Missouri, a very Republican state, where Donald Trump is leading by 10 points, and people say they don't see how he can recover from this.

Robert de Niro has recorded a brutal video attacking Donald Trump. The Hollywood actor's delivered an impassioned appeal to Americans to not vote for the Republican presidential nominee.

He is so blatantly stupid. He's a punk. He's a dog. He's a pig. He's a con artist. A bullshit artist. He is a mutt who doesn't know what he is talking about, doesn't do his homework, doesn't care. He thinks he is gaming society. He doesn't pay his taxes. He is an idiot. Colin Powell said it best, he is a national disaster and an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry this country has got to this point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has. He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face. Well, I want to punch him in the face. This is somebody we want for President? I don't think so. I care about the direction of this country, and what I'm very, very worried about is that it might go in the wrong direction with someone like Donald Trump. If you care about your future, vote for it. Russia has moved nuclear weapons close to the border of Poland and if Rainier. They say they are part of routine military drills in its most eastern onside and not an act of aggression. On the dusty flatlands of Northern Premier, there is little evidence of geopolitical incidents. But early in August something happened in this village. It resurrected fears of large-scale conflict between Ukraine and Russia. This is what Russia's government says took place and was duly reported. Ukrainian operatives about to launch an attack in Crimea were busted by security agents. One Russian officer was killed in a firefight. Two nights later, more Ukrainian raiding attempts were stopped and another Russian die. The suspects were shown on news channels admitting all. At the United Nations, Ukraine denied it as a Russian government and a fractured provocation.And they made up a pretext, Ukraine is undertaking a hybrid operation to justify its future aggressive actions against Ukraine -- Russia is undertaking. Since the annexation of Crimea early in 2014, Russia has chosen to shine the light, operating mainly in the shadows. It is very possible we will never find out exactly what happened in the beginning of August, and maybe that is by design. Regardless of what might or might not have taken place, Russia followed those incidents with a sharp increase of military activity in and around Crimea. A message perhaps for Ukraine and the West. Tanks, artillery and troops immediately went on the move, dominating in a series of military drills involving 120,000 soldiers -- culminating. It was pretty much Russia's full arsenal on display, suggesting NATO was the hypothetical adversarial with the Black Sea region being the main theatre of war.20,000 mobilised, that is a big walk -- 120,000. Maybe regional war. Russian, Ukrainian. But that is very serious. This was a test of their ability to mobilise, to move in forces. Preparation for massive air action, say.But it is likely there was a domestic audience in mind as well. Russia's government had a message for its people. Ukraine and the West may not like it, Crimea is Russia now, and it would be given out without a serious fight. -- want to be given out.

Almost half of all Australian employees will experience workplace bullying during their careers, according to new research from Beyond Blue. It's revealed victims of workplace bullying and the bullies themselves suffer higher rates of depression, anxiety and physical health problems like obesity. problems like obesity.
We are joined by Beyond Blue CEO Georgie Harman. Before we get to the implications of what this study has revealed, can you explain what bullying is this map how does manifest in the workplace? I imagine it can be subtle in some instances.There are several key characteristics they constitute bullying. Firstly, it has to be targeted at an individual with the intent of causing them harm, human lesion or distress. It has to be repeated. A 1-off incident does not constitute bullying -- humiliation. And it has to present a risk to health or safety. Sometimes we get confused about performance management with bullying, but they are separate things. Any reasonable action taken by a manager in a reasonable weight does not constitute bullying.If you feel like you are being bullied at work and feel like it is your boss being you, where do you go?It depends on where you work. I guess what we are saying in the research is saying is any organisation is going to face this as an issue, and it is far better to prevent this and have to manage it when it happens. Our research has shown basically a study on businesses and organisations and employers have been focusing on the wrong things, they have been focusing on the individuals, the victim or perpetrator. And often turning it into this analogy differences. That is far too simplistic -- personality differences. What the experts are telling us is we have to do root and branch cultural change in organisations. Led by strong leadership with them policies that are concise, clear, the processes people know about, when they feel they are being bullied. It is about strong leadership and the DNA of a place. It is about more than just the absence of bullying, it is about creating mentally healthy workplaces where people can flourish.That will be quite a task. It will of course need to bring on board those in a position to actually make decisions and determine what happens in the workplace. Is there a sense that it is in fact happening in the border workplace committee?I think we have reached a tipping point in Italia. Beyond blue for the last couple of years have been working with a whole range of partners in business in the regulatory area and also with our colleagues in the mental health sector. Very strongly working with employers to say, mentally healthy workplaces are actually the heart of good business practice. We have launched an initiative called heads up, which is basically a place where any Australian employer can go and find very practical strategies, tools, guidance, research, and things that help them to put good measures in place. Heads up is the 1-stop website. I believe things are changing. Australian employees are recognising that one in five Australian workers is experiencing mental health conditions right now -- employers. The rates of absenteeism and the costs associated with dealing with bullying when it happens are bad for business. We need to turn the other way and saying we need to create workplaces where people can live, where there is great to medication and strong leadership. That says we will not tolerate bullying and act appropriately when it happens -- communication. People in power can get on and do their work supported by good processes and systems. I don't pick it is that conjugated. It is about creating a place where people can be happy! I don't think it is that, located. Policies can take's, but it is about individuals. Bullying is described as an epidemic, and the predictions that half four Australian employees will experience it at some time their working lives, why are there so many bullies in workplaces? I think it comes down to workplaces that allowed this to happen. Workload, stressful environment, people would behave in certain ways. Turn it on its head. An environment where there is great communication. We talk about it, come and talk to your manager if you are feeling overwhelmed. Before someone actually starts to behave inappropriately.It is interesting the research looks at the broader implications. But also the perpetrators.Not only the big them is but also those who witness it because it can lead to a lack of trust in the environment that you are working in but also those that are accused or are the perpetrators of pulling, it can have a profound effect. Especially if you are accused falsely. Very clear processes that need to be followed, the issue needs to be resolved Independent me as quickly as possible.If you think you are a victim but feel too scared to go to your superiors, where should you go for help?You can go to colleagues, representatives such as unions, Independent bodies, antidiscrimination bodies, human rights bodies. There is almost too much of the innocent so what we have tried to do is point people through the website with four pages of very practical list -based information targeted at employers, managers and employees stop there is great information out there. You can find very useful information.Thank you for your time.Can I just say that I thought the man up program is fantastic and Gus spoke very very clearly and is doing fantastic work. Thank you very much. And if you or someone you know is experiencing distress, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or if you need information or support you can contact beyond blue on 1300 22 4636. It's being called an aquaculture holy grail. Researchers in Tasmania claim they have the technology to breed rock lobster from larvae on a commercial scale. It's a breakthrough for an industry grappling with sustainability issues and a scientific community with little understanding of how the lobsters develop.

You wouldn't think this alien creature would grow up to be one of these. Usually found off the coast of Queensland, on the great Barrier Reef, scientists have been breeding the tropical rock lobster in a laboratory south of Hobart. This is one of the father lobsters, basically, the lucrative seafood in high demand across Asia, is caught only in the wild. It's complex lifecycle has made it too hard to produce commerically. Rock lobsters spend months as skeletal, plastic-like creatures before undergoing a metamorphosis. It goes through 11 Seperate moult stages - there's opportunities for disease and death and cannabalism. After 17 years of research, scientists at the University of Tasmania have found what they're calling one of aquaculture's holy grails the mass production of rock lobster larvae. We've gone from one litre beakers up to 10,000 litre tanks. Personally exciting, and its got great commercial and environmental potential. Now they're looking for commercial partners to take production to the next level. Certainly in the short term there's increasing demand for lobster and increasing demand for the product. It's also the first time scientists have been able to closely study lobster's early stages. In the laboratory we can better Undertsand their ecology and their fisheries and the effect of things like climate change. A breakthrough in more ways than one.

This next story is going to make you feel very lazy about your Sunday, let me tell you. Completing a marathon is an achievement by any standard - but what if you ran more than one marathon - a day. Samantha Gash is an ultra-marathon runner and is making her way across India for charity. Over 76 days Samantha will cover three-thousand eight-hundred kilometres. Somehow she found the time to speak with us about her journey so far. We are, in terms of days, past the halfway mark. A couple of days ago. I struggle to remember what day it is so to even know that is quite challenging. Perception of time and distance sometimes gets wiped away in the challenges of this project. I feel so excited to be here. It is a place I have never been to before and have been looking forward to coming to. It feels like quite a milestone. You're running distances of anywhere up to 60km per day, that is more than a marathon. How do you sustain that? I have prepared for more than two years. I am running anywhere between 50-70 kilometres on the days I am running which is pretty much every day. There are a couple of days with community visits for World Vision support. But it tends to be 50-70 Ks. How does this compare with other events you have participated in? Is it even less challenging in some respects? I wish I could say it has been less challenging than any of the projects I have done before. There are so many different components to this project that is so unpredictable and have huge adversity against them that this is the hardest project I have done to date. How have you been received by the locals? The locals within communities I have visited have been amazing. I cannot even describe what it is like walking into a community with hundreds of people there to receive you. They receive me with songs, dance and garlands. It is a very joyous moment. It is quite overwhelming because when I am running I'm for the most part by myself and then you are surrounded by a couple of hundred people and you are the centre of attention. I suppose I do not deal as well in big crowds. As I probably thought before the project. An extraordinary effort you are undertaking. Few can even imagine anything to compare. Thank you for joining us. That's stick with the physical thing. What has been happening? A lot of action in the rugby overnight?I going to run a marathon, just quietly after that story. The Wallabies have finished the Rugby Championship in second spot after beating Argentina in London this morning. They were undisciplined with playing some time with only 14 men after two people sin binned for high tackle. Australia managed to take a 10-point lead into half time despite receiving two yellow cards before the break. Samu Kerevi crossed for a double. And the Wallabies held on to record 33-21 win over the Pumas. Australia only had 26% possession. The forwards dominated for most of the match, especially in the scrum. They will have to pick up their game because they play New Zealand at Eden Park where they have not beaten the All Blacks were something like 30 years. This morning, the All Blacks wrapped up the Championship with their biggest ever victory over South Africa - a 57-15 smashing which equalled their world record winning streak of 17 tests. Hard to see them not making at 19. And in the A-League?62,000! The A-League would have been happy with that. A lot of talk about tension between the two sides and it really lived up to the billing. It came across in the first half stop after the break Sydney seat went absolutely berserk, taking full wanted of its opportunities. There were four goals scored in the second half and it extends their undefeated streak to eight matches in the Sydney derby. 1002 days, which I am sure the Sydney FC fans were letting the Wanderers fans know. Also last night, Central Coast came from 3-0 down to salvage a 3-3 draw with Perth and Melbourne City defeated Wellington 1-0. And that this start in about 10 minutes. So if you're interested, get watching. And I'm Adrian Raschella. Join us again next week. Captions by Ericsson Access Services. Copyright Australian Broadcasting Corporation
