******* Australia must plan for the future - Steve Waugh Steve Waugh said Australia must pick a group of players and stick with them through think and thin © Associated Press Steve Waugh has praised the togetherness of an England squad that he believes are favourites to secure the Ashes with victory in the third Test at Perth, but believes that the time has come for Australia's selectors to identify the men that they believe can return the Test team to winning ways, and then back them through thick and thin - in much the same way that he himself was given time to learn his game in the early years of his own international career.

Transcript by Newsy**** BY SIWEN LI You're watching multisource business news analysis from Newsy It’s almost like a flashback to 2010. Toyota announced another recall Tuesday -- and nearly 1.7 million vehicles worldwide may be at risk of fuel leakage and other problems. According to a statement from Toyota: "Due to insufficient tightening of the fuel pressure sensor connected to certain engine fuel delivery pipes ... there is a possibility that the pressure sensor could loosen over time." The recalls are mostly in Japan, but also include Lexus IS and GS luxury sedans sold in North America. That's where Toyota faces the biggest challenges in winning back customers’ trust. Toyota was the only large automaker to post a sales decline last year in the U.S. A business expert tells The Wall Street Journal - the recall - quote - “is damaging the brand more.” Auto analyst Koji Endo tells ABC the newest recalls will cost Toyota about $240 million, but won't hurt its earnings much. "But there is that perception of here we go again...”7 Other crisis-management experts think the recall won't dent Toyota’s reputation. Eric Dezenhall, CEO of Dezenhall Resources tells The Wall Street Journal [Toyota officials] “...have done a pretty good job of communicating with their core buyers...” [since the 2010 recall.] And a Tokyo-based analyst thinks the lessons Toyota has learned from the past. “After Toyota’s recalls last year, the company is more sensitive to recall issues and conducting them as early as possible.” According to the Associated Press -- Toyota sold 8.4 million vehicles worldwide in 2010 -- making it the leader in global sales. So do you think Toyota will retain its title this recall? Get multisource video news analysis from Newsy

BY BRANDON TWICHELL ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Confusion reigns in the Suez Canal after Iran said it would have two warships cross it and dock in Syria. Now the Associated Press says Iran has withdrawn its request to cross the canal without giving a reason. And to top it all off, Egypt says Iran never filed a request in the first place. Was Iran serious about crossing the canal - or was it trying to provoke the West? We’re looking at the Suez incident with coverage from The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, and The Washington Times. Iran claims the warships are training to combat Somali pirates and needed to dock in Syria. Israel says Iran is simply provoking them. A correspondent tells The Wall Street Journal Israel is also worried about Iran’s relationship with Syria. “Israel sees Syria as part of an axis with Iran, in alliance with Iran and Hezbollah. And so Israel might see this as sort of an attempt to sort of tighten a, you know, the noose around itself.” Some news sources say Iran never had permission to cross the Suez in the first place. A Fox News correspondent says Iran is simply doing what it always does - touting its power. “It’s likely, Shep, the Iranians are playing their usual game of trying to deflect attention from problems at home by provoking Israel and the West. It may also be that the Iranian leadership wants to send these warships through the Suez Canal to send a message to its own people that it is a player on the world stage.” But Israel decidedly viewed the movement as a clear provocation, with its foreign minister saying it “aggravates the situation in the region.” A writer for the Washington Times suggests the Iranian government is simply trying to distract an unhappy population -- with Israel as its scapegoat. “It shuts up the populace, since you can't very well side against your own government while it's fighting the Little Satan. It tamps down internal divisions, since no internal squabble can compare with the endless existential fight with the Zionist colonialist imperialist oppressor.” As late as Thursday, Israel’s Haaretz says Iran is still trying to get the warships to pass through the canal. Iran hasn’t sent warships through the Suez since 1979. 'Like' Newsy on Facebook to get updates in your news feed Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY MALLORY PERRYMAN You're watching multisource U.S. news analysis from Newsy “Four American hostages that had been held captive by Somali pirates have been killed.” (MSNBC) “Apparently gun fire was heard aboard that pirated vessel.” (CNN) “The Orange County couple’s yacht was hijacked as it was sailing in the Indian Ocean on a trip to deliver Bibles.” (KCBS) Somali pirates fatally shot four American hostages after hijacking their yacht, the Quest, off the coast of Oman. MSNBC reports- the tragic turn of events happened as U.S. military vessels tailed the yacht- trying to negotiate a deal. Jim Miklaszewski: “US military officials say that all 15 of those pirates have been killed or captured themselves. Over the past couple of days, military and an FBI negotiating team had been talking to the pirates trying to convince them to release those hostages.” CNN’s Kyra Phillips points out what most media outlets focused on- pirates are usually out for treasure- not murder. She asks world reporter Zain Verjee….what’s changed? Zain Verjee: “That is the question everyone in the maritime security is asking. The answer is that there is a fear that Islamic extremism has now crept into piracy. ..You see Al-Shabab has taken control of most of Somalia and it is also dealing with the pirates, arguing with the pirates for more money and there’s basically a power struggle going on.” A power struggle…maybe. A blogger for LA Weekly speculates- the pirates’ motive could be more obvious- writing the American boaters... “...may be paying for the recent U.S. Federal court sentencing of [a] Somali pirate…who was handed 34 years in prison just two days before the O.C. couple was targeted. “ That blogger also points out- a Somali pirate told an Associated Press reporter Americans would suffer quote “regrettable consequences” for the sentence. On Fox News, Brian Kilmeade talked with a retired Navy captain who says- the Quest should never have been in a pirate zone in the first place. He points out- the US is spending a lot of money trying to negotiate with pirates- money that’s just fueling the trade. Ret. Capt. Chuck Nash: “You run the risk when you go through there, especially if you’re a small sailing vessel like the Quest because they see money there.” Brian Kilmeade: “And if you pay off these guys to get these people back that could all feed into the war on terror and it could end up coming back against our troops.” Ret. Capt. Chuck Nash: “You know Brian, I wish more people would start thinking that way.” Finally, a Wired reporter writes- pirates may continue this trend of killing or torturing hostages in order to be taken more seriously. And that’s something the US can’t afford to deal with. “… if the world’s governments perceive pirates as a serious threat…then the governments’ ‘cure’ for piracy could end up being worse than the ‘disease.’ Today’s low-intensity ‘war on piracy’ could morph into something akin to the unending, politically charged, super-expensive ‘war on terrorism.’” The commander of US naval forces in the region says this incident is the deadliest one he can recall involving US citizens held by pirates. According to the Piracy Reporting Center- pirates took more than 1100 hostages in 2010. Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER Anchor: Jennifer Meckles You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy It’s not just “rowdy” Americans like Charlie Sheen making headlines for being a badboy... even the fashion world has its own star blunders. One of Dior’s top designers, John Galliano, is feeling the fashion heat as he has been suspended for ‘anti-semitic’ remarks...while drunk. Ring a bell, Mel Gibson? (Video: ITN) ...but reports are a bit befuddled, and no one is really sure what happened that night, but everyone has their own opinion -- even CNN, whose reporter called the step against one of the top names in the industry “dramatic and drastic”. “What on Earth did take place in that restaurant in Paris? And what is he alleged to have said? Certainly whatever it was has caused a storm right in the middle of fashion world’s big weeks. ” Witnesses who spoke to the Associated Press claim Galliano was pestered into the outburst, but news site TJ Walker points the finger at Galliano, saying -- he doesn’t get three strikes before he’s out. “This is just not something you can get away with anymore. My prediction: he’s gonna be gone, he’s gonna start his own fashion line again, but this is a severe set back for him.” The New York Times focused less on what could have been said, and more on the fact that Galliano was drunk... really, really drunk. “Mr. Galliano had a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal driving limit, the police official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity in keeping with police regulations.” But what about the life of Dior without its top designer? The Telegraph interviewed Italian Vogue Editor-In-Chief, who said Dior without Galliano would be “a pity”... FRANCA SOZZANI: “You fire or you keep. I don’t see anything in the middle. It’s not like it is you’re a bad boy, go behind the blackboard. No.” REPORTER: “Sit in the corner for ten minutes...” SOZANNI: “No, stay in the corners. I think it’s a point of view.” Finally, the Wall Street Journal reports --Galliano’s not going down without a fight. “Christian Dior designer John Galliano has filed a defamation lawsuit against the Parisian couple...Dior’s enfant terrible is fighting to save his reputation – and possibly his job.” 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your new feed Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY ALLIE SPILLYARDS ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy Humanitarian intervention or lead-up to war? The stated goal of allied intervention in Libya is to protect civilians - but U.S. media analysts are skeptical. MIKA BRZENZSKI: “I think the New York Times headline is the big question: ‘Target clear. Intent is not.’.” JOE SCARBOROUGH: “It says it all.” President Obama said Friday the U.S. would not be deploying ground-level troops to Libya - and its efforts are focused on protecting civilians. On Sunday Admiral Mike Mullen reiterated to NBC’s David Gregory - U.S. involvement is limited. MIKE MULLEN: “It’s about supporting the United Nations resolution which talked to limiting or eliminating his ability to kill his own people, as well as support the humanitarian efforts.” DAVID GREGORY: “So the mission could be completed and Ghadafi could remain in power?” MIKE MULLEN: “That’s certainly potentially one outcome.” But ABC’s Christiane Amanpour pressed a Libyan opposition leader and the French ambassador to the U.N. - both of whom say - it isn’t over until Gaddafi is ousted. ALI SULEIMAN AUJAI: “I understand the mission is to protect the Libyan civilians, not only benghazi. Protecting them only achieved by one goal - that Gaddadi not there.” (FLASH) GERARD ARAUD: “We want the Libyan people to express their will, I have said. We consider that means Gaddafi has to go.” Competing goals and an ill-defined end prompted CNN’s Reliable Sources to blame journalists for not asking the right questions prior to U.S. intervention. JAMIE MCINTYRE: “You clearly can’t prevent Gaddafi’s forces from prevailing on the ground with just a no-fly zone. There’s going to have to be some sort of action on the ground as well. Whether that will be left to other allies or what that will be. And what you have to keep coming back to as a reporter is, what are the foreign policy objectives? What are the forces being employed to enforce those? Is it possible? Are they the right objectives?” Those are exactly the questions Politico’s Ben Smith and Byron Tau are asking. They suggest President Obama seems willing to do whatever it takes to stabilize Libya - and that means - no clear exit strategy. “Qadhafi’s tenacity ... as evidenced over decades of survival … begs the question of what happens if this self-consciously limited allied response does not succeed in chasing him from power. … Other observers worry … that the U.S. ... could find itself with no obvious exit.” But the U.S. isn’t alone in this effort - in fact - Defense Secretary Robert Gates says the U.S. will NOT play a “preeminent role” - and the U.S. will hand over control and command to Britain and France in the coming days. But National Journal’s James Kitfield isn’t so sure. “...others have proposed that the operation be run under the aegis of NATO, despite the public reluctance of key member nations such as Germany and Turkey. … With so much of the credibility of the Western alliance now on the line, will the United States inevitably have to step in and take the reins if the operation stalls?” A French official told the Associated Press Monday - allied military intervention is likely to last - quote - “a while.” Gaddafi has said he is prepared for a long and drawn-out war.

BY: CHRISTIE NICKS ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource U.S video news analysis from Newsy. Sam Berkley’s driver’s license says he’s male. His friends say he’s male. He says he’s male. But his birth certificate says otherwise. 30-year-old Berkley made the transition from woman to man- and now he wants the New York City Health Department to recognize the change. New York City requires a full surgical sex change and psychological exam before it allows transgendered people to alter their birth certificates. Berkley and his two co-plaintiffs say the requirements are excessive- so they’re suing the city. SAM BERKLEY- “When you have to apply for a job, when you have to apply for health insurance, when I have to obtain a new passport I need to show that document. What am I supposed to do in that moment? When the person on the other end is looking at me? I don’t know what’s going to happen.” “I should be able to say, I’m a man and they shouldn’t have to tell me that I need this surgery to be a man.” New York City’s Board of Health says it understands the complaint from the transgender community- but its main concern is fraud- and at a security-conscious time, a commentator writes on The Slatest blog- maybe New York City has a point. “It seems to me the government is within reason to require that a person who has all of the equipment of a male be identified as such on his birth certificate. Simply allowing self-identification of gender introduces needless complexity...” But a blogger for Random Forest disagrees saying- transgendered individuals shouldn’t have to be subjected to judgment every time they show their I.D. “I think identification should be available to prevent them from judgment and discrimination in every day life … Maybe they should just scrap gender on birth certificates all together and only have it displayed on medical records.” The trio is teamed up with the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund for the lawsuit. An attorney for the Fund tells AMNewYork, the requirements to change a birth certificate are over-the-top. “Most state and federal agencies require only a physician’s letter testifying that a person is living and presenting as the gender he or she purports to be...If a physician’s letter is good enough to get a new passport from the State Department...’it should be good enough for the Health Department.’” According to the Associated Press, transgender-rights advocates have had some luck in the past getting agencies to abandon surgical requirements for changing identity documents.

BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource health video news analysis from Newsy. The Associated Press reports The American Cancer Society is not recommending routine prostate cancer screenings for most men. The news comes after the results of a 20-year Swedish study were published, saying the exam is not necessary and does not help prevent cancer. “Gentlemen, listen to this. Getting a prostate exam routinely may not help you in the long run. Researchers say they found no difference in the rates of prostate cancer for men who got screenings and those who didn't.” (Video source: KNXV) The study involved 9,000 Swedish men--and it suggests routine screenings are, well...useless. ...but there are other ways to tell if a man is at risk for prostate cancer. San Francisco CBS-affiliate KCBS says balding may be the way to tell. REPORTER: “In a French study, doctors found that if a man in his early 20s has a pronounced widow's peak from his hair receding, he should be vigilant about screening for prostate cancer.” “It means younger men who are having male pattern baldness in their 20s probably need to start getting tested for prostate cancer with a blood test called a PSA blood test earlier than normal men who don't start until age 50. ” Boston NBC-affiliate WNDH spoke with a man who suggests all sorts of screenings-- prostate, colon, and even smoking cessation. He says these are the most important things when it comes to nipping cancer before it’s a problem. “Early detection, early diagnosis are the next most important thing. Then getting cancer treated early because when it’s early, there's less cancer to get rid of. It just makes perfect sense. You have a better chance of getting rid of it completely.” But the Prostate Cancer Charity disagrees with the new study, and BBC spoke with a representative who says the study was too small and contradicts a bigger study (and better, in her opinion) that published opposite results. That study says the screenings do help prevent cancer. “‘Whilst this research suggests that screening men for prostate cancer doesn't reduce the number of men dying from the disease, this was a relatively small study and not all the screening rounds used the PSA test, which is the most effective test we have at the moment to indicate prostate problems that might be cancer.” One in four newly diagnosed cancers in UK men is prostate cancer. ...but what do you think?

BY TARA GRIMES ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO You're watching multisource US video news analysis from Newsy It just might pay to be a baby mamma these days. At least, some critics say, if you’re Bristol Palin. MSNBC ANCHOR: “When appointed teen ambassador for raising awareness for teen pregnancy prevention, Bristol Palin said that if she could prevent one girl from getting pregnant she would feel a sense of accomplishment. However, tax documents show that wasn’t Palin’s only incentive. On that job in 2009 she earned more than a quarter of a million dollars.” The Associated Press reports, Palin was paid handsomely by the non-profit organization Candie's Foundation for public service announcements like these… BRISTOL PALIN: “What if I couldn’t finish my education?” …while the foundation itself donated just $35,000 to health and counseling clinics. The blogosphere blew up when it learned Palin made nearly 10 times what the clinics received. America Blog writes... “Palin should be fired immediately... This is the family values crowd sending this message to America's kids. Get pregnant as a get rich quick scheme. Lovely.” Others say if celebrities like MTV “Teen Mom” Amber Portwood can rake in the dough for bad behavior, why can’t Palin? The Business Insider writes, celebrities cash in on PSA’s all the time. “Before you cry foul over Palin's paycheck: other spokespersons for the foundation include Hilary Duff, Fergie and Ciara. It's doubtful that any of them are doing it for less than a quarter mil.” Still others criticize the Candie's Foundation, saying it spends too much money on events, galas, and celebrity endorsements, when it should be focused on the cause. Forbes points out it happens all the time. “We should encourage charities and charitable investments, but we should hold these programs accountable. If I had donated to the Candie’s Foundation, I would not have expected my money to go mostly to paying for Palin’s wardrobe.” The Candie’s Foundation says Palin has been a courageous and powerful partner to the foundation and is just being compensated for her work.
