Coming soon to the small screen: TV in 3D
By Colin Parrott OSAKA, Japan, Sept 29 (Reuters Life!) - You've seen movies in 3D. Now, how about your favourite TV series?

Panasonic Corp (6752.T) unveiled on Monday a 50 inch (127 cm) high-definition 3D plasma TV and glasses that make images appear like you can touch them.

At a demonstration at Panasonic's head office in Osaka, F1 race cars roared right by viewers and gymnasts barrelled down a runway, hitting vaulting horse and flipping towards the audience.

"We've introduced concrete plans to deliver the first 3D into people's homes. It won't disappoint," said Yoshiiku Miyata, Panasonic managing executive officer in charge of audio visual products.

He declined to comment on an exact release date or price tag, stating that the company hopes the new TVs will hit shelves sometime in 2010.

The technology works by tricking the brain into seeing 3D as high-speed shutters in the glasses work in sync with the TV to deliver a double layered image at twice the speed of normal TV.

"When the TV is showing the left image, the shutter closes the right eye so people can see only the left image," explained Keisuke Suetsugi, manager in charge of high quality AV development. "And the next moment, when the TV is showing the right image, the shutter glass is covering the left."

The company hopes the smaller, more living room friendly 50 inch model will become a popular choice for home theatres than a 103 inch big brother that debuted last October.

The new model will go on display to the public at the CEATEC Japan tech show Oct 6-10.

Panasonic announced in August it will team up with Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment in the making of Oscar-winning director James Cameron's new 3D film "Avatar", set to open in theatres worldwide this December.

Chief rival electronics maker Sony Corp (6758.T) announced earlier this month it also plans to launch 3D TVs by 2010. [nT156048]

<h2 class="cN-headingPage prepend-5 span-11 last">Volcanic eruption in Australia '3000 years overdue'</h2>
September 21, 2009 - 6:25AM As if bushfires, drought and floods aren't enough, Australians have now been warned about a volcanic eruption.

A scientist says an eruption is "well overdue" and there are hundreds of volcanoes that could cause trouble, from South Australia and Victoria through to Queensland.

Melbourne geologist Bernie Joyce wants "eruption response plans" drawn up.

He says there are 400 volcanoes in Victoria and South Australia, and almost as many in Queensland.

"A significant eruption seems well overdue," said Professor Joyce, who has been associated with the University of Melbourne.

"These geo-hazards are real and they must be given much more focus by emergency management authorities.

"We can't say with 100 per cent certainty that a significant volcano will strike tomorrow, next week, next year, or even 100 years down the track."

Professor Joyce takes a long-term view, as geologists tend to do. He says there has been a volcanic eruption about every 2000 years in Australia, but the last one was 5000 years ago.

That means an eruption is 3000 years overdue.

Prof Joyce will this week be awarded the Geological Society of Australia Selwyn Medal.

I have a solution why doesn't the bank just itemise the Li Jun accounts as LI Jun1, Li Jun2, Li Jun 3, Li Jun4, and so on to Li jun300 etc..............LOL


Chinese bank turns away man due to his name
By Michael Kitchen LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- A bank in southern China refused to open an account for a man named Li Jun, saying his name was too common and they already had 300 account holders with the same name, the China Daily reported Thursday. The Guangdong province bank, which wasn't identified, said they had stopped opening accounts for people named Li Jun, according to the report, which cited an account in the Guangzhou Daily. Li has consulted lawyers and is considering filing a lawsuit against the bank, the report said.

Is this a classic or what?????????? I suppose as the saying goes, every dog has his day............fairdinkum, a real joke......


Dog in Northern Territory given parking ticket
A DOG has been booked for illegal parking. The blue heeler was tied to a fence outside Darwin's Rapid Creek market when it was approached by two city council traffic wardens, the Northern Territory News reports.

One of the inspectors wrote out a ticket - and taped it to the dog's lead.

Witness Ray McEvoy said he couldn't believe his eyes.

It was reported this morning on TEN morning news that (listen to this) mobile phones are as addictive as cigarettes.............mmmm, who of you out there smokes their mobile?????????????

Have you ever seen any one smoking a mobile phone - maybe there should be WARNING labels on mobiles:
"WARNING, SMOKING THIS MOBILE PHONE CAN BE ADDICTIVE AND DANGEROUS TO YOUR HEALTH"

People, mobiles are for making calls, NOT smoking them, ok...............LOL

"Her spree added up to more than the listed retailer's pre-tax earnings in the 2008 financial year of $17.3 million."

I could understand BHP, CBA, etc not noticing a missing $20m but a company who's pre-tax earnings was $17.3m...sorry management have big case to answer.

If it was over 10 years one could partly understand... but 18 months, thats an average of $1.1m per month.

Cheers
Matt
