women's rugby union World Cup. We will also have a round`up of the

:00:00.:00:00.

night's football in Sportsday after the papers.

:00:00.:00:19.

Welcome to our look ahead to what the newspapers are going to be

:00:20.:00:24.

bringing us tomorrow morning. We have got a fume or of the front

:00:25.:00:29.

pages of the first editions. `` a fume all.

:00:30.:00:33.

Welcome again. Let us have a look at some of the front pages. Starting

:00:34.:00:44.

with the Financial Times. It says the slow rise in wages means the

:00:45.:00:49.

city is not expecting interest rates to rise until 2015 at the earliest.

:00:50.:00:54.

It has got an interesting picture of the Governor, Mark Carney, looking

:00:55.:01:00.

somewhat pensive. The article says he said any rise in interest rates

:01:01.:01:06.

would be gradual and limited. The Telegraph says Britain's SAS is on

:01:07.:01:09.

the ground in Iraq as the US tries to find a way to rescue tens of

:01:10.:01:16.

thousands refugees. The Express, how to reclaim unpaid

:01:17.:01:22.

pension. Up to 5 million people are missing out on payments from

:01:23.:01:26.

pensions to which they are entitled. The Metro has a great story.

:01:27.:01:36.

Apparently a pilot landed the 47 passenger safely even though his

:01:37.:01:38.

prosthetic arm fell off while flying.

:01:39.:01:44.

The Guardian has a photograph of a man who was killed while trying to

:01:45.:01:52.

defuse a bomb in Gaza. That was as the ceasefire continued, apparently.

:01:53.:01:57.

There is a report that the Guardian does not yet have on its front page

:01:58.:02:02.

that a five`day ceasefire has now been agreed.

:02:03.:02:08.

The Daily Mail, the shock is apparently because they can no

:02:09.:02:18.

longer sit their exams to back. The result is that a lot of breads will

:02:19.:02:22.

be lower than people hoped. `` grades. The picture is of a

:02:23.:02:29.

university lecturer after he was attacked by burglars in his own

:02:30.:02:36.

home. The ongoing crisis in Iraq in the Times. Special forces are hoping

:02:37.:02:41.

to rescue 30,000 refugees. They have updated their front`page in the past

:02:42.:02:49.

hour. And the Independent, British troops on their way to Iraq. Let us

:02:50.:02:58.

begin with the Times. The SAS joins the mission to save 30,000 trapped

:02:59.:03:03.

refugees. Our political correspondent has been told by

:03:04.:03:10.

sources that this is accurately SAS. Any surprise? It is interesting. All

:03:11.:03:17.

the newspapers are reading with this story. It is an important story for

:03:18.:03:28.

the UK. And what it means. From humanitarian standpoint, the world

:03:29.:03:31.

has been shocked by the images of those refugees stuck on a mountain

:03:32.:03:39.

in the heat, 48 degrees. It is one that we have to think about, what

:03:40.:03:45.

happens beyond evacuation. The Times goes into the two possible options.

:03:46.:03:49.

They could be flown out, or humanitarian corridor is made safe

:03:50.:03:59.

for their passage. `` corridors. The point about this is even the

:04:00.:04:06.

humanitarian mission could become a lot more complicated. As it points

:04:07.:04:11.

out here, if you have a land corridor, you have to go through

:04:12.:04:16.

Islamic State Territory. You are going to have hundreds if not

:04:17.:04:24.

thousands of troops. Obama is not keen to get back in. That is what we

:04:25.:04:32.

have been saying as well. It is very hard. If you have troops on the

:04:33.:04:37.

ground protecting the humanitarian operation, soft defence can become

:04:38.:04:44.

combat. And there is the point you are making as well. What we have

:04:45.:04:55.

seen today, the talk of supplying Kurdish forces, the French are

:04:56.:05:00.

getting involved. And helicopters are helping to transfer people. If

:05:01.:05:05.

we are not supplying weapons, we are helping. It is a military

:05:06.:05:13.

operation. It is time to push back and contain Islamic State. That is a

:05:14.:05:18.

separate issue. It could escalate any substantial way. The photograph

:05:19.:05:32.

we are seeing, the issue of ISIS, it is not just going to be about Mount

:05:33.:05:38.

Sinjar. Once they are involved, it is hard to say, we are only going to

:05:39.:05:41.

do this limited humanitarian mission. The argument is our foreign

:05:42.:05:49.

policy caused all this in the first place. The lesson of Syria is that

:05:50.:05:54.

sitting there and doing nothing is not a great option either. ISIS

:05:55.:06:03.

moved from Syria to Iraq. You have got people like this man here. And

:06:04.:06:09.

you have got carnage going on because of that. Moving on to the

:06:10.:06:15.

Guardian. All of the papers have the SES story. `` SAS. A personal story

:06:16.:06:24.

about a man who was blown up after he was trying to defuse bombs and

:06:25.:06:32.

had been doing it for five years. This is part of the problem about

:06:33.:06:36.

what is trying to find out what is going on with the ceasefire. A

:06:37.:06:44.

ceasefire as the same time rockets are being fired. There seems to be a

:06:45.:06:52.

ceasefire, even though fire is still happening. There is a political will

:06:53.:06:57.

to get a truce of some sort. Hopefully a political solution. At

:06:58.:07:01.

the end of the day, as long as there is an occupation that will be

:07:02.:07:07.

another round of fire. We are not seeing an end to an occupation, but

:07:08.:07:12.

there is the will to push forward. How has this story in Gaza blame for

:07:13.:07:21.

you? London is a city with a large Arab population and the Jewish

:07:22.:07:25.

population as well. Has this been creating a lot of interest? It has.

:07:26.:07:31.

It is a well story, frankly. Everybody is interested. `` world

:07:32.:07:38.

story. Everything else gets pushed aside. There are so many major

:07:39.:07:43.

international crises, Ukraine going on at the same time. It could easily

:07:44.:07:50.

come back. It has attracted a lot of interest. It is clearly very

:07:51.:07:58.

important. It is just one of several horrendous situations. And important

:07:59.:08:05.

for readers of your paper as well? Absolutely. We have been covering

:08:06.:08:09.

the Palestinian situation for years and years. It is important to see

:08:10.:08:16.

what will happen next. These are actual lives. We have a quote

:08:17.:08:19.

saying, my wife thinks they will come home one day in pieces in a

:08:20.:08:29.

box. And sadly it happened. Going back to the Bank of England's

:08:30.:08:34.

inflation report. Not a lot of surprises in this. More of the same.

:08:35.:08:41.

Are there any kind of things niggling at the back of the minds of

:08:42.:08:47.

politicians. Sluggish growth in Europe, warnings of what might

:08:48.:08:54.

happen in the Ukraine. Our people as confident as they are sounding? The

:08:55.:09:02.

question is, and this may come back to haunt everyone, there is this

:09:03.:09:10.

debate about the rich race being delayed and actually there should be

:09:11.:09:16.

some pre`emptive action to restrict things and stop the spending and

:09:17.:09:23.

growth. Charlie Bean, the deputy governor, said he should start early

:09:24.:09:32.

and you can make the rises incremental. Others have been saying

:09:33.:09:37.

the same thing. A bit like what happened in the crash. People were

:09:38.:09:41.

warning about the growth in credit and so on for a long time. And yet

:09:42.:09:47.

nothing was done. Suddenly, everything went horribly wrong. That

:09:48.:09:51.

is the danger from a consumer point of view of the slightly disturbing

:09:52.:10:00.

thing. An ongoing situation where wages are not rising. That does

:10:01.:10:13.

suggest all the figures look great. And yet, how are people feeling?

:10:14.:10:21.

Absolutely. It is the first decline in wages for five years. It depends

:10:22.:10:27.

on how you do the maths. It goes into the political debate. Lives are

:10:28.:10:34.

not improving, even if there is in `` increased growth. The lowest

:10:35.:10:40.

common denominator is, how does this affect my mortgage? Everybody is

:10:41.:10:48.

watching to see how it will affect their mortgages next year. The other

:10:49.:10:55.

side of that is the people who been lucky enough to be able to buy their

:10:56.:11:00.

own home and find that their savings are not giving much. People are

:11:01.:11:06.

encouraged to keep buying and then prices get up and it will get harder

:11:07.:11:14.

for those people. Sticking to the younger end of the demographic.

:11:15.:11:19.

A`level results in England and Wales and Northern Ireland. Crackdown

:11:20.:11:26.

means thousands of people will be disappointed. Why? What has changed,

:11:27.:11:33.

pupils have not been able to do multiple resits. People have been

:11:34.:11:43.

doing it in January and then again in June. The professor is quoted as

:11:44.:11:50.

saying that is likely to be harder to do. Your results may not be as

:11:51.:11:57.

good. It is trying to improve and stop students being trained for

:11:58.:12:05.

exams and exams. One corroboree of that is on the front of the

:12:06.:12:13.

Telegraph. `` corollary. Universities will be recruiting

:12:14.:12:17.

students through the clearing system. That is more than at the

:12:18.:12:24.

same point last year. There is a bit more competition going on. Some of

:12:25.:12:27.

those who did not get the grades they were hoping for might get that

:12:28.:12:33.

place. This is one of those things, you get completely overwhelmed. It

:12:34.:12:38.

took me a long time to get my head around that. This idea of clearing.

:12:39.:12:45.

You get your results and think, OK, can I get more. A lot more students

:12:46.:12:52.

will get taken in by universities. All of the changes we keep seeing

:12:53.:13:01.

through students off. What has happened is universities are given a

:13:02.:13:07.

bit of choice without restriction whatsoever. If there are going to be

:13:08.:13:17.

fewer of them, the premium on those people is going to be increased.

:13:18.:13:22.

Ending on a happy note. The Financial Times. Under the Mark

:13:23.:13:32.

Carney picture, a bit more cheerful. Tell me about these people? Without

:13:33.:13:39.

introducing a system when you go on holiday, there is an e`mail that

:13:40.:13:46.

will make sure you do not receive an e`mail while on holiday and you do

:13:47.:13:51.

not come back to this massive inbox of hundreds of thousands of

:13:52.:13:58.

e`mails. This is a brilliant German efficiency. They have it right. I

:13:59.:14:06.

love the quote. Nobody should have to read work`related e`mails on

:14:07.:14:12.

holiday. There is no traffic in their inbox. It is an emotional

:14:13.:14:19.

relief. It is so true. Apparently other German companies have been

:14:20.:14:26.

doing it as well. They have agreed to stop sending e`mails to ring

:14:27.:14:33.

weekends, knights and holidays. `` during. Maybe this is their way of

:14:34.:14:46.

fixing it. Thank you very much. That is it for the papers. We will be

:14:47.:14:55.

back at midnight. More on the crisis in Iraq as American military teams

:14:56.:14:59.

land on Mount Sinjar to help thousands of stranded Yazidi people.

:15:00.:15:02.

It is time for Sportsday. Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm

:15:03.:15:20.
