Team NZ Wins - Shane Warne Apologises - East Timor - Austria - Millennium Wheel - Flowers And Floral Names - Avalanche - Cricket

TEAM NZ WINS: One down four to go. Black boat 22 seconds ahead at first mark in first race of Americas Cup finals. 11 seconds at second mark. Finish an anticlimax with Prada 1 minute 17 seconds behind. Very important victory. Pre-race predictions that Prada faster in light air clearly not correct. Prada made some clear tactical errors.

SHANE WARNE APOLOGISES: Budding sports photographer who took a snap of Shane Warne smoking has been apologised to. Boys happy to accept the apology from team management but would like an autographed bat.

EAST TIMOR: NZ and Australian peace keepers have been busy on the East Timor border as order collapses at a border crossing. Problems started when a militia member struck a refugee. Stones thrown and warning shots fired into the air have refugees running for cover. No casualties.

AUSTRIA: Austrians have staged their biggest protest ever against the inclusion of a far right wing party in their new government.

MILLENNIUM WHEEL: Royal family members try out millennium wheel in London for the first time.

FLOWERS AND FLORAL NAMES: Floral namesake festival in Christchurch. Fleur, Lilian, Rosie, Ivy, Daphne and others with floral names gather in Christchurch's Botanic Gardens to collect prizes for hats and names.

AVALANCHE: Time is running out for three New Zealand snowboarders hit in a massive avalanche near Nagano in Japan.

CRICKET: The Black Caps are not going to push the panic button after their five wicket thrashing at the hands of the Australians yesterday.
