degrees. Heading towards the second half of the week, or the weekend, it

:00:00.:00:00.

looks like the weather will go downhill. You are up`to`date with

:00:00.:00:00.

the weather. Hello, and welcome to our lookahead

:00:00.:00:23.

at what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are Kevin

:00:24.:00:32.

Scofield and Kate Devlin. Tomorrow's front pages, starting

:00:33.:00:35.

with the Telegraph, which leads with the story we have been covering, the

:00:36.:00:41.

Ebola outbreak in Africa. There are warned it could reach the UK. And,

:00:42.:00:47.

the photo of Louis Smith, who won gold at the Commonwealth Games. He

:00:48.:00:52.

makes the front page on the Guardian as well, and the paper also says

:00:53.:00:56.

that construction workers involved in building venues for the World Cup

:00:57.:01:01.

in Qatar are being paid less than ?5 per day. The Times search for a new

:01:02.:01:10.

BBC chief in disarray, saying the corporation is struggling

:01:11.:01:16.

new head for the BBC trust. The Daily Mail claims that Britain is

:01:17.:01:22.

spending ?5 billion per year on tax credits for migrant workers. A money

:01:23.:01:26.

picture on the front of the Independent. That is Gaza, and the

:01:27.:01:37.

headline, darkest day yet. The Daily Mirror also touching on Ebola,

:01:38.:01:40.

saying the world is now on red alert. The Sun has a different

:01:41.:01:47.

health crisis, saying the new NHS boss is telling doctors and nurses

:01:48.:01:51.

to slim down and set a good example to the rest of us, particularly to

:01:52.:01:56.

obese patients. Let's take a look at what we have on

:01:57.:02:01.

the front page of the Daily Mirror. Again, talking about Ebola. Do you

:02:02.:02:07.

remember the film Outbreak, with Dustin Hoffman, where the world

:02:08.:02:11.

suddenly wakes up to this nasty disease in Africa, and we think,

:02:12.:02:22.

what are the implications for us? 90% of people who contract with

:02:23.:02:29.

disease diet. There is no cure. `` die. Although it is far away in

:02:30.:02:35.

Africa, it could have implications for here, and they are pretty

:02:36.:02:39.

obvious. At the moment it is a small risk, we are told, but doctors are

:02:40.:02:43.

to be on high alert for anyone displaying symptoms. Then it becomes

:02:44.:02:47.

a question of whether we have the capability to deal with it. You

:02:48.:02:53.

think we do have the capability? Paddy think we fared with? SARS``

:02:54.:03:11.

how do you think. Isolation is the important thing, and individual

:03:12.:03:14.

companies will have to be looking for symptoms, and we will have to

:03:15.:03:19.

have a serious plan for dealing with it. The question is whether we have

:03:20.:03:27.

large`scale hospitals who are experts in these kinds of diseases,

:03:28.:03:32.

and they could isolate things in the past, whether they still exist in

:03:33.:03:37.

the UK today. Let's have a look at the Times. They are talking about

:03:38.:03:41.

sanctions on Russia. Do you think they have gone far enough? I think

:03:42.:03:45.

they have gone further and more quickly than many of us expected. At

:03:46.:03:57.

first, it seemed the governments were talking the talk, but not

:03:58.:04:02.

following through. Now, it seems the EU and US have got together and

:04:03.:04:05.

co`ordinated their response, and are trying to hammer Russia with quite

:04:06.:04:11.

severe sanctions. My concern is that sanctions can be a bit of a blunt

:04:12.:04:15.

instrument, and quite often, the people they are intended to hurt,

:04:16.:04:18.

those in the upper echelons of government, they escaped the effect

:04:19.:04:23.

of those. It is those who are already struggling in Russia who

:04:24.:04:27.

could be affected, and it could bolster Putin's position, because it

:04:28.:04:32.

could give rise to some nationalistic fervour. His poll

:04:33.:04:37.

ratings are still quite high, as he placed the Vic card. We have to see

:04:38.:04:45.

how Putin reacts, but he is not the type to back down `` the victim

:04:46.:05:00.

card. The mood after MH17 since you have really changed in Germany. It

:05:01.:05:07.

has changed here. We were being briefed that he European economies

:05:08.:05:13.

must be accepting of some pain over this, but it has to happen. Although

:05:14.:05:21.

we already see some complaints from British companies this evening, like

:05:22.:05:23.

BP, that there might be hit by sanctions, I think I agree with

:05:24.:05:31.

Kevin about how far they have gone and how good it is that they have

:05:32.:05:33.

managed to co`ordinated. The problem is that we are trying to stop Russia

:05:34.:05:42.

from funnelling arms into disk part of Ukraine `` into this part of

:05:43.:05:45.

Ukraine, and there may have to be further measures.

:05:46.:05:57.

It is not going to work. It is talking like they're going to war

:05:58.:06:07.

with Russia. David Cameron that some of the victims at Downing Street. ``

:06:08.:06:15.

met some. It is shocking that some of the bodies are still in the

:06:16.:06:19.

Ukraine and they haven't been identified. Your heart goes out to

:06:20.:06:22.

the families . It must be a nightmare. If there

:06:23.:06:34.

is something that summarises the situation in Gaza, it is the one on

:06:35.:06:40.

the front of the Independent. It is difficult and sad. As someone from

:06:41.:06:48.

Northern Ireland who remembered when the peace accord was signed in the

:06:49.:06:56.

1990s, I hoped that that short lived agreement gave us... To see this, it

:06:57.:07:08.

is so sad. All the messages coming suggest that it is a long conflict

:07:09.:07:15.

and there is no end in sight. Both sides are digging in. It doesn't

:07:16.:07:20.

seem that the outside powers are having much influence on the

:07:21.:07:28.

Israelis, who effectively hold all the cards. There has been limited

:07:29.:07:41.

condemnation. Ed Miliband has gone furthest in saying that this is

:07:42.:07:46.

wrong. They need to be more forceful, but they always seem to

:07:47.:07:51.

drop back from that. There is no end in sight. Kate draws a parallel with

:07:52.:07:59.

Northern Ireland. That was resolved eventually, but you can't see it

:08:00.:08:06.

here. This picture sums it up. There is the expression, but the rest of

:08:07.:08:12.

it is devastated. How will they be able to recover? How much money will

:08:13.:08:18.

be needed to repair the country? It has such huge economic problems

:08:19.:08:31.

anyway. The effect that the continual bombardment is having on

:08:32.:08:35.

people 's lives is incredible. The difficulty with the international

:08:36.:08:39.

response to the concerned that if the international community, it is

:08:40.:08:45.

very much negative towards Israel, it might act to confirm the siege

:08:46.:08:51.

mentality that is happening in the Israeli government and it may make

:08:52.:08:55.

things worse. It is a difficult situation. There is a lot written

:08:56.:09:03.

and the last few days with Tony Blair, the Middle East envoy. What

:09:04.:09:08.

is the talk Westminster about what he is doing? Apparently he threw a

:09:09.:09:20.

sexy birthday party the other night. Critic said he should be trying to

:09:21.:09:24.

broker an agreement. I find it ironic. People criticise him and say

:09:25.:09:33.

he doesn't do anything, and then they say he is the wrong person.

:09:34.:09:38.

They say that the Middle East is a flame. He is in a difficult

:09:39.:09:45.

situation. He won't leave his post. He has to keep working for peace.

:09:46.:09:50.

How much influence he can have remains to be seen. Let's look at

:09:51.:09:58.

the Telegraph. This is a picture of another Gold medal for England. That

:09:59.:10:08.

is Lewis Smith, the gymnast. The other article is about not letting

:10:09.:10:12.

the taxman sees cash from bank accounts. This hasn't come in yet,

:10:13.:10:19.

but experts say there are plans for the taxman to seize money from

:10:20.:10:23.

people post marked personal bank accounts could lead to wrecked

:10:24.:10:31.

lives. `` people's personal bank accounts. What do you think?

:10:32.:10:39.

Governments aren't very good at this kind of thing. The thought that the

:10:40.:10:44.

taxman would get it right in every case, I don't know. They see people

:10:45.:10:51.

would get a fair warning. You would have four strikes. It is the thin

:10:52.:11:01.

end of the wedge. If it is talking about tax being taken, it is a blunt

:11:02.:11:09.

instrument. It could be reduced to two warnings. I worry about civil

:11:10.:11:17.

liberties and tracking text messages and phone calls. It affects people

:11:18.:11:28.

's lives on a daily basis. There are people who dodge tax. There are

:11:29.:11:40.

people in Italy that walk into bars and they make you sign a cheque at

:11:41.:11:47.

gunpoint. These are for people that don't pay. Are these people that

:11:48.:11:54.

don't have very much money to begin with? Have they moved house? It is

:11:55.:12:05.

open to all sorts of error. Maybe someone who has lost a couple of

:12:06.:12:09.

grand, and for whatever reason can't pay back, he is going to have his

:12:10.:12:22.

money taken away. I am about it. It doesn't say anything about the

:12:23.:12:24.

corporate accounts of star barks. `` Starbucks. These people have

:12:25.:12:38.

corporate lawyers. I don't like the idea that they can take your life

:12:39.:12:45.

savings. To the Sun. It is about slimming down. What is this about?

:12:46.:12:56.

First of all, hats off to the Sun for an outstanding headline again.

:12:57.:13:02.

This is about the new NHS chief executive. He is saying that the NHS

:13:03.:13:08.

can't be telling people they have to lose weight. We are clearly in the

:13:09.:13:21.

grip of an obesity epidemic. Fat doctors are telling them to lose

:13:22.:13:29.

weight. A large proportion of the NHS staff are overweight. If you are

:13:30.:13:36.

being told by a chubby doctor to lose weight, you might want to tell

:13:37.:13:43.

them that themselves. They have to change the food because it is

:13:44.:13:49.

setting a bad example. There has to be incentives for the NHS staff to

:13:50.:13:58.

lose weight and set an example. The Express lead with a similar story

:13:59.:14:02.

about what we should be eating. They are talking about five portions of

:14:03.:14:08.

fruit and vegetables. They say the doctors are giving one piece of

:14:09.:14:12.

advice and eating burgers and chips. I like that the NHS boss is putting

:14:13.:14:18.

his money where his mouth is. He said he has had to lose three stone

:14:19.:14:28.

because he used to be fact. `` fat. They spend a lot of hours in

:14:29.:14:34.

surgery. They stack. We all do it because we work 70 hours. `` silly

:14:35.:14:45.

hours. They probably work long hours and aren't paid as much as they

:14:46.:14:55.

should be. Do you eat five a day? Always. I never miss it. He could be

:14:56.:15:02.

looking at other figures. Example, the number of NHS staff that don't

:15:03.:15:11.

have a flu jab is shocking. Take your own medicine. We are going to

:15:12.:15:22.

the Scotsman. It is about a dating website matching the wrong partners.

:15:23.:15:27.

This is about a website called OK Cupid. It has about 70 million

:15:28.:15:39.

websites worldwide. They were telling people that they didn't have

:15:40.:15:42.

a good match. They were about 30% matched, but really they were about

:15:43.:15:48.

90% matched. People follow through with this. OK Cupid defend this.

:15:49.:15:56.

They say what happened is that people messaged more people than

:15:57.:16:04.

they should have. The idea is that it is not always the way the world

:16:05.:16:10.

works. So their potential partner had a 90% rating, but the people

:16:11.:16:15.

they were matched with hat a 30% rating. They were being used as

:16:16.:16:28.

guinea pigs. These websites are based on trust. You put in your

:16:29.:16:32.

details and you rely on them to come up with someone who is going to be a

:16:33.:16:37.

good match. If they are telling you that this person is a 90% match, you

:16:38.:16:43.

will believe that. Did they say how many people struck up the fruitful

:16:44.:16:50.

relationship? It is difficult with a long`term relationship. Facebook did

:16:51.:16:56.

this a couple of weeks ago. They changed what people were reading.

:16:57.:17:04.

The messages from the friends of things either slightly more positive

:17:05.:17:08.

or negative. The experiment showed that people 's emotions are easy to

:17:09.:17:16.

manipulate. I would have thought that any fight `year`old girl in the

:17:17.:17:27.

playground could have told you that. But `` five`year`old. They do say

:17:28.:17:34.

that opposites attract, so that is interesting. Thank you for that.

:17:35.:17:43.

Stay with us here on BBC News. At midnight, more than a hundred

:17:44.:17:45.

Palestinians killed in the deadliest 24 hours in Gaza since the current

:17:46.:17:48.

conflict began. But coming up next it's time for Commonwealth Games

:17:49.:17:50.

Sportsday with Katie Gornall.
