Driving while Texting - the graphic ad 2 die 4
A BRITISH ad on the dangers of texting while driving is the most graphic yet, but one road safety expert says if it saves just one life then its a good ad. Produced by the Gwent Police Department in Wales, it shows the bloody outcome of texting while driving. Three teen girls giggle over a message they are sending, then the distracted driver smashes head-on into another car. The girl in the passenger seat, barely alive after the impact, is killed when a third car slams into them. The carnage extends to another car, where a young girl asks why her parents arent waking up, and another shot shows an apparently dead baby in close-up. See the ad on the right but be advised of its graphic content.

Police Slams Video of man riding back of Connex train in Melbourne
A MAN has been captured riding on the back of a train The stunt, which took place in Melbourne, has horrified Victorian Premier John Brumby. He said yesterday that he could not imagine a more stupid, idiotic or dangerous thing to do. A horrified reader captured the moment a man risked his life hitching a ride on the back of a train on Friday night. Mr Brumby called on anyone considering such a dangerous stunt to think of their loved ones before risking their lives. I would just say to that young person, while he may believe hes infallible and may not care much for his own life if he is injured someone else bears the burden of that, he said.

Two people share record $106m Oz Lotto draw
A SOUTH Australian man and a Queensland couple are the only winners of last night's record $106 million Oz Lotto jackpot. A massive 10 million entries were put in for the draw, as seemingly the entire nation dreamed about how to spend Australia's biggest ever division one payout. When the draw was finally televised - nearly 20 minutes late - there was nothing but disappointment in every household but two. And neither of the winners, who will each pocket a cool $53 million, is entirely sure what to do next. Scroll down to see our secret formula which shows how the number 3 ruled the draw. The South Australian man, identified only as being in his 40s and from the western suburbs of Adelaide, was shocked into silence as he watched his numbers come up. I just watched the draw, matched three numbers and the other four numbers just fell into place, the man told SA Lotteries. I couldnt move, I couldnt react, I couldnt do anything but sit there and stare at my ticket, he said.

Orangutan causes evacuation at Adelaide Zoo
AN ingenious 62 kilogram orangutan short circuited electrical wires and climbed a fence using a makeshift ladder in an aborted escape attempt from Adelaide Zoo today. The elaborate plot by 27-year-old Karta got her to within metres of the public, and resulted in the closure of the zoo on one of its busiest days of the year. The alarm was raised by a member of the public about 11am. Zoo curator Peter Whitehead said Karta had twisted a stick into hot wires that encircled her enclosure, short circuiting the wires and allowing her to enter a vegetated area near the concrete and glass fence that separated her from the public. She then piled up sticks, grass and plant roots and used them to climb onto the fence.

The two illegal "bombs" found in a drawer in his home are believed to be hand grenades. He had permits for seven rifles in his home but is alleged to have illegally been in possession of ammunition.

Last Moran Down - Des Moran Gunned down in ascot vale, Carl Williams stunned
THE last of the Morans was lying in his own blood on the floor of his favourite cafe when news of his violent death reached rival gangland clan leader Carl Williams in jail. This time, there was no snigger from Williams, the cherub-faced killer serving 35 years for his brutal role in Melbourne's gangland war. As Williams' ex-wife Roberta told The Australian, there was stunned surprise on the phone when she explained that Des Moran, brother of slain crime patriarch Lewis Moran and uncle of the late Mark and Jason, had met the same fate as the other men of his family just before noon. "Des was not a part of all that stuff," said Mrs Williams shortly after hearing of Moran's execution by two gunmen. "He deadset minded his own business. You never heard from him. "If they are willing to kill some defenceless drunk like Des, who else are they prepared to kill? I mean where the f--k does it all end, you can't even have a f--king cup of coffee without getting shot these days."

New dinosaur species in australia found
THEY were found entwined in an ancient Australian billabong - predator and prey preserved forever. "Banjo" was a vicious hunter, a 5m-long killer of the times that chased down its victims over a flat, rolling landscape filled with ferns and conifers about 98 million years ago. When Banjo - scientific name australovenator wintonensis - caught the smaller plant-eating dinosaurs it hunted, the claws came out - brutal daggers attached to its "hands" that could flail a belly like a can opener. With 36 razor teeth on its bottom jaw, it cut through tough skin, muscle and tendons. But Banjo would never pass up an easy feed. Scott Hocknull, the dinosaur hunter who yesterday unveiled Australia's most important fossil finds, believes that is why the carnivore's bones were discovered mixed up with those of "Matilda", a massive plant-eating dinosaur. A third dinosaur, nicknamed "Clancy", was found about 4km away at Winton, a rich fossil hunting area in central Queensland. Mr Hocknull said Banjo was Australia's version of the velociraptor, made famous in Jurassic Park. "Ours is bigger and meaner. In reality velociraptor was turkey-sized," Queensland Museum senior curator of geosciences Mr Hocknull said yesterday. "Matilda probably got stuck in the mud and Banjo has come along, seen a free meal and got stuck too. "Matilda was a plant eater 15m or 16m long which weighed about 20 tonnes. We think australovenator normally hunted solo and would run down dinosaurs smaller than it was but they could have also formed packs to take on really big prey. "There's fossil footprints in the same area showing a dinosaur stampede with a carnivore following." Clancy was a different giant vegetarian, also about 16m long but taller and more slender than Matilda. "Clancy was like a giraffe of the times and Matilda a hippo. They filled different niches, able to reach different plants," Mr Hocknull, 31, said. All three are new to science, the most complete large dinosaur bones found in Australia and the first major find in more than 25 years. They are also justification for Mr Hocknull's almost life-long obsession with Australian dinosaurs. "When I became fascinated as a teenager I was told you had to go overseas to discover major dinosaurs and make a name because no one found much here," he said. The dinosaurs have been nicknamed after characters created by poet Banjo Paterson.

Police searching for fatal shooting suspects in Altona North
HOMICIDE Squad detectives are hunting for two men suspected of being involved in last night's fatal shooting in Altona North. A 28-year-old Altona North man, believed to be a father of two, was shot dead as he was getting out of his car in Fifth Avenue around 7.45pm (AEST), in Melbourne's west. Police are also looking for a gold or champagne coloured 2005 Holden Commodore SS sedan that was seen at the scene shortly before the drive-by shooting. The shooting is Melbourne's second in only a week following the death of gangland figure Desmond "Tuppence" Moran who was gunned down at a cafe in Ascot Vale last Monday.

Woman bragged about group sex with Matthew Johns former co-worker says
Tania Boyd has told the Nine Network that the woman in the ABC's Four Corners report, identified as "Clare'', had boasted to her workmates about bedding several players and only contacted police five days after the alleged incident. "She was absolutely excited about the fact. She was bragging about it to the staff and quite willing, openly saying how she had sex with several players,'' said Ms Boyd. "We were quite disgusted about it. There was no trauma whatsoever. "I'm disgusted that a woman can all of a sudden change her story from having a great time to then turning it into a terrible crime. "One minute she was absolutely bragging about it, she did not know names. These names only came to light to us in the last day. "We all just thought it was hilarious until five days later the police came to work and were horrified she had now changed her story to say she was now a victim of crime. "It was definitely consensual, absolutely. "She is saying she is still traumatised etcetera, well she wasn't for five days, or four days at least, after that affair. "I can't work out what's happened. Does it take five days for it to sink in?'' The woman told the ABC that the night in which she had group sex with several Cronulla players at a Christchurch hotel seven years ago left her with psychological damage and led her to abandoning her studies.

Kevin Rudd gives Malcolm Turnbull 24 hours to produce 'utegate' email
OPPOSITION Leader Malcolm Turnbull has 24 hours to produce the alleged email at the centre of the OzCar scandal or step down, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says. Mr Rudd said there was a ticking clock for Mr Turnbull to show Parliament evidence of the email on which the case against himself, the Treasurer and the Government was based. However Mr Turnbull has dismissed the challenge as "arrogant" and a distraction from the real issue. At the heart of the Opposition's claims has been an alleged email sent from Mr Rudd's office to a treasury official suggesting Queensland car dealer John Grant should be given priority in a government assistance program. Mr Grant is a friend and neighbour of Mr Rudd. No trace of the email has been found and Mr Rudd has called in both the Australian Federal Police and the auditor-general to investigate the issue. "Mr Turnbull and the Liberals have been boasting for a long time now that they are in possession of this information," Mr Rudd said.

Judy Moran denied bail as house blaze probed
Gangland widow Judy Moran is a danger to the community with easy access to guns and cannot be released on bail, a court has ruled. In a case described by Victoria's police chief as stranger than fiction, a suspicious fire badly damaged Moran's house hours after she was charged over the murder of her brother-in-law, Desmond Moran. Magistrate Jelena Popovic said as she refused bail for Moran and co-accused Suzanne Kane the fact they had access to guns was a concern. Melbourne Magistrates Court was told three handguns were hidden in a safe at Moran's house, while a loaded shotgun was hidden under cushions 1m away from her back door. ''That in my view does constitute a concern in terms of the safety of the members of the community,'' Ms Popovic said. Police opposed the women's bail application, telling the court there was a risk Moran, 64, might flee Australia. They also argued the women would obstruct justice and had the propensity to destroy evidence. Victoria's top prosecutor, Gavin Silbert, SC, said the house fire ''might have been seen as some sort of retribution that may endanger the public''. Arson squad detectives scoured the Melbourne home, investigating the source of the blaze. It's believed an accelerant was thrown through the front lounge window, starting the fire and causing $150,000 damage to the property recently listed for sale for $1million. The fire came 36 hours after two gunmen shot dead Des Moran in the doorway of a cafe in a busy shopping strip in suburban Ascot Vale on Monday. Moran and Kane, the sister in-law of Moran's murdered son Jason Moran, are both charged with being an accessary after the murder. Kane's de facto husband, Geoffrey Amour, 43, alleged to be one of the shooters, is charged with murder and is due in court today. Police say they are still hunting a second gunman and the getaway driver. They released a man without charge after quizzing him on Tuesday night. Ms Popovic was critical of the evidence led by police, describing it as evasive and unhelpful.

New York Man Caught impersonating his dead mother
A MAN wore wigs, make-up and dresses to impersonate his dead mother so he could collect $145,000 worth of government payments in a plot to rival the Hitchcock classic "Psycho": Thomas Parkin, 49, was charged Wednesday in the bizarre plot to impersonate his deceased mother so he could collect government benefits. He and the man accused of being his accomplice, Mhilton Rimolo, pleaded not guilty to grand larceny, criminal impersonation and other charges. Both men were ordered held on $1 million bail. Their lawyers did not immediately respond to phone messages left on Wednesday. District Attorney Charles Hynes said the scam was "unparalleled in its scope and brazenness." Authorities claim that following his arrest, Parkin told them that because he held Prusik when she breathed her last breath, "I am my mother." Parkin, who lived with his mother, was accused of hatching the scheme after she passed away in 2003 at age 73. He managed to conceal the death by falsifying her death certificate, then collected $52,000 from her $700-a-month Social Security checks over the next six years, prosecutors said. Authorities say Parkin also got another $65,000 in rent subsidies by falsely claiming he had a disability and that his mother was still alive and was his landlord. Parkin used his friend Rimolo to pose as the mother's nephew when going to cash checks and do other business, prosecutors said. A security camera photo from the DMV office shows a frail-looking Parkin in a wig and dark glasses, Rimolo by his side, as he fills out paperwork. The ruse began to unravel amid a dispute over the mother's home, which was sold at foreclosure in 2003. Parkin challenged the purchase by suing the new owner on his mother's behalf so he wouldn't be evicted.

He said he had ridden on the back of trains before and nothing would stop him from doing it again.

MTR to take over for connex, A look at MTR in Hong Kong
THE Victorian Government has responded to commuter frustration over Melbourne's bursting at the seams public transport system by dumping the metropolitan train and tram operators. Connex and Yarra Trams will not have their contracts renewed at the end of year when the Government instead will sign with two overseas-based companies as it tries to quell the transport headache before next year's election. But critics say a changing of the guard will not resolve the problems, particularly on the rail network, which has been dogged by cancellations, delays and overcrowding. Hong Kong-based operator MTR Corporation will take over Melbourne's metropolitan trains in December, when Connex's contract expires. Yarra Trams will be replaced by French-based company Keolis. Both companies headed bids with local partners. The eight-year contracts, worth billions of dollars, will be finalised in August, with the option of being extended to 15 years, subject to performance. Victorian Premier John Brumby promised significant changes, with the winning bidders guaranteeing safer, cleaner and more reliable transport, with better customer service.

Hubble Space walk ran into trouble while repairing
SPACEWALKING astronauts have upgraded the Hubble telescope for the first time in seven years, equipping the 19-year-old stargazer with a powerful new camera and science computer. The seven hour outing by John Grunsfeld and Drew Feustel, members of the seven-strong space shuttle Atlantis crew, marked the first of five daily spacewalks by the astronauts. "We gave Hubble a hug, and true to form Hubble gave us a few curves,'' Grunsfeld, a 50-year-old astronomer making his third visit to the telescope, more than any other astronaut. Feustel, a 43-year-old geologist and a rookie astronaut, provided the muscle that freed a balk bolt that threatened to prevent the spacewalks from removing the telescope's main camera and replace it with a more capable one. "I don't normally reveal my age, but I can tell you I'm five years older than when I came to work this morning,'' David Lechrone, NASA's chief Hubble astronomer, told a news briefing. "I hope the rest of the mission goes a little bit smoother.''

Around 100 soldiers fired M-16 assault rifles in sustained bursts as they drove back the protesters who also hurled petrol bombs at security force. Protesters set on fire at least two buses parked near gas canisters.

First Commanchero arrested over brawl - anger spills outside court
AN alleged Commanchero bikie has been arrested over the Sydney airport brawl that led to the death of a man linked to the gang, police say. Anthony Zervas, 29, the brother of senior Hells Angels member Peter Zervas, was left to die in a pool of blood after the March 22 brawl involving several men, including members of the Comanchero bikie gang. Sydney courts have been told Anthony Zervas suffered severe head injuries during the brawl as a result of being bludgeoned with a steel bollard. Police also allege he suffered stab wounds before he died. Gang squad detectives today arrested a 32-year-old man at Punchbowl, in Sydney's southwest. "Police will allege the man is a member of the Hells Angels outlaw motor cycle gang,'' police said. He is being questioned by police and is expected to face charges. If charged, he will be the first Hells Angel member or associate to face court over the fatal brawl. Six Comancheros have already been charged with affray in relation to the incident. Yesterday, one of those six men - gang boss Mahmoud "Mick'' Hawi - was charged with Anthony Zervas' murder.

New breast cancer drug added to PBS Abraxane
THE breast cancer treatment, Tykerb, has been placed on the the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS), making it cheaper for women affected by an aggressive form of the disease. Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon announced today that from May 1, Lapatinib, known commercially as Tykerb, would be subsidised under the scheme's arrangements. Tykerb had been found to slow the progress of and improve symptoms associated with advanced HER-2 positive breast cancer, Ms Roxon said. "Without any subsidy, the medicine would cost women between $3500 and $4000 each month," she said. "Lapatinib will be available to people with HER-2 positive metastatic or advanced breast cancer for whom other treatments have proved ineffective." The drug is used in treating a particularly aggressive form of disease known as advanced HER-2 positive breast cancer. "HER-2 positive breast cancer is an aggressive form of cancer that particularly impacts upon younger women," Ms Roxon said. "Around 87 per cent of patients diagnosed with advanced breast cancer will die from the disease within five years.

Man charged with DUI after crashing into pool
AN allegedly drunk driver had to be rescued from his car after it crashed through a fence and into a backyard pool in Scarborough early today. Police say the 27-year-old's car ploughed through the fence of a property in Marsden St before crashing into the swimming pool. Home owner Don Robins said he was woken when he heard the car smash through the compressed fibre retaining wall of his pool and the metal uprights that support it. Gallery: More pictures of car in the pool ``It gave us quite a shock,'' Mr Robins said. ``But I think the driver was in deeper shock. ``The car was submerged when we got to it and he had to be pulled out by our neighbours and my son, who managed to open a door to get to him.'' Mr Robins said the car had almost certainly become airborne after smashing through the fence, as there is a one-and-a-half metre drop between the fence and the pool. He said the Lexus car remained in the pool while the family waited for insurance assessors to arrive. ``I think it's going to be quite a repair bill for the driver,'' Mr Roberts said. He said it was fortunate the driver had gone through the fence guarding the pool and not the fence to his left, in front of the home. ``He could have gone into a bedroom where people were sleeping,'' Mr Robins said. The driver, who was the only person in the car, was charged with driving under the influence, dangerous driving and not having a driver's licence.

American Coleman company has bought the Esky from Nylex
ANOTHER Aussie icon has fallen, with the humble Esky being bought by Americans. A division of US firm Coleman Company has bought the cooler from Nylex Ltd, which is in receivership, for an undisclosed sum. Coleman Company, an international seller of outdoor equipment, has divisions in Australia, Europe, Canada and Venezuela and plans to take the Esky, which has been in Australia for 57 years, global. Coleman Asia Pacific president Simon Traynor said he would be taking the Esky, which is sold only in Australia and New Zealand, to Asia. "I've had conversations with my Japanese counterparts and we will be presenting the Esky brand and the range at the end of the month to a number of customers across Asia," he said. Mr Traynor said there were several links between Esky and Coleman, which sells stoves, coolers, tents, airbeds, backpacks and grills. "Twenty years ago there was a licensing agreement between Coleman and Esky that not only meant the Nylex factory manufactured Coleman coolers but that the Coleman sales team sold the Esky brand into camping stores,"' he said. Mr Traynor said the company was "very excited these two iconic brands are back together". The Kansas-based company hopes to take the Esky brand to South Africa, North America and Europe in the longer term. The sale will be completed on July 19. The humble Esky is the latest in a long line of innovative Australian brands and products that overseas raiders have grabbed. Other famous brands now owned by overseas companies include Vegemite, Arnott's biscuits, the Hills Hoist, Four 'n' Twenty pies, Minties, Rosella soup and even the drovers' overcoat Driz-A-Bone.

Jackson 'bald, riddled with needle holes'
MICHAEL Jackson was virtually bald, riddled with needle wounds and weighed just 51kg when he died. UK tabloid The Sun said Jacksons stomach held only pills and his body was scarred by at least 13 cosmetic surgery operations. The needle holes were a legacy of Jacksons addiction to painkillers, injected three times a day for years The Sun said. Pathologists said Jackson was wearing a wig which covered just peach fuzz on the former King of Pops head and that several of his ribs were broken as a result of frantic attempts to revive him after he suffered a heart attack in his Los Angeles apartment on Friday. Michaels family and fans will be horrified when they realise the appalling state he was in, a source told The Sun. Experts also expressed their amazement at the way Jackson was treated on his death bed, with one of four attempts to inject adrenaline into his heart missing its target and noticeable damage caused by oxygen masks and tubing inserted during resuscitation attempts. The stars personal physician Dr Conrad Murray is also under fire for attempting to resuscitate Jackson on his bed, rather than face-up on a hard surface as per basic CPR guidelines, a mistake which could have cost doctors vital minutes. Despite Jacksons condition, the preliminary examination also found he was recovering well from a skin cancer operation.

Liberals rule out Turnbull challenge
SENIOR Liberal Party figures have strongly ruled out any chance of a leadership challenge to Malcolm Turnbull despite a major collapse in his popularity ratings in the wake of the OzCar affair. Opposition families spokesman Tony Abbott today urged observers to take a cold shower after a Newspoll published in today's edition of The Australian found the proportion of voters satisfied with the Opposition Leader's performance plunged from 44 per cent in a poll conducted between June 12-14 to 25 per cent at the weekend. In the same period, the Opposition Leader's dissatisfaction rating climbed from 37 per cent to 58 per cent. The collapse followed Mr Turnbull's failed attempts last week to prove Kevin Rudd gave favoured treatment to an Ipswich car dealer who supplied him with a free utility vehicle. The dealer was seeking information about taxpayer-funded help for car dealers to deal with the credit crunch caused by the global recession. Mr Turnbull faced heavy Government attack after calling for the Prime Minister's resignation on the basis of an email which turned out to be a forgery. This morning Mr Abbott said coalition MPs were getting on with their jobs. No-one was focused on a leadership challenge. I think people need to take a bit of a cold shower about the polls, Mr Abbott said. When you've had a tough week you get bad polls. Labor threw everything bar the kitchen sink at us last week, but Malcolm Turnbull has not flinched and the party has not flinched. Other senior MPs, asking for anonymity, backed Mr Abbott, saying no-one was happy with the poll or last week's events but that most of the party accepted Mr Turnbull would learn from his errors. They said there was an expectation Mr Turnbull, in only his second term in Parliament, could use a planned frontbench reshuffle to promote seasoned political operators including Mr Abbott. The MPs also said that the only person being mentioned as a serious alternative leader Sydney MP Joe Hockey was making clear to colleagues that Mr Turnbull should remain leader.
