When investing in something exciting like a new television, the last thing you want to happen is for technical jargon to take the edge off and put a dampener on things, so here is a jargon buster specifically for LCD, Plasma, High Definition and LED TVs:

LCD Liquid Crystal Display. The technology used to create some flat screen televisions which allows for clear and crisp images whether watching television or playing games through your TV.

LED Light Emitting Diode. Light Emitting Diodes are used in conjunction with LCD technology to give a bright, backlit image which is clear and visible no matter what the surrounding light conditions are like.

HD High Definition. HD produces significantly better picture quality than SD (Standard Definition) which all televisions used to fall under. This is because it has one to two million pixels per frame, approximately five times that of SD, meaning the picture quality is sharper, clearer and more lifelike.

HD Ready This means that the television, computer monitor or laptop youre buying supports High Definition technology and you will be able to enjoy those programmes and games which are filmed in HD and offer a more realistic viewing experience.

Plasma Technology which has allowed television screens to become bigger and bigger without losing picture quality in the process. Plasma TVs are still the preferred choice for those opting to buy a TV which is larger than 42 inches in diameter.

Wi-Fi ready Wireless Fidelity. The name given to a device which can connect wirelessly to the internet, most commonly associated with laptops and mobile devices, but can now be applied to any device which can be used to connect to the internet, including televisions that are Wi-Fi ready.

Resolution This refers to the number of pixels per frame; the more pixels there are per frame, the higher the resolution and the better the picture quality.

3D DNR 3D Digital Noise Reduction. This is a feature which is built into many televisions to reduce picture grain and emit as clear a picture as possible.

50Hz / 100Hz The frequency at which the electrical current is transmitted to the user from the power source; the faster the frequency, the clearer and more flicker-free image the television will relay to you.

IPS In Plane Switching. This was developed in the late 1990s as a way to overcome the limited viewing angle of flat screens on televisions, laptops and so on, as well as to improve poor colour reproduction. Due to the expense of this technology, it was initially reserved for monitors used by people such as graphic designers but as the price dropped, the technology has been adopted in mainstream products, for example Panasonic LCD TVs incorporate this technology, allowing them to produce a high quality image without the excessive energy consumption that the original IPS technology used.

DLNA certified Digital Living Network Alliance. Having this certification means that the manufacturer has signed up to an alliance which means they are offering consumers standardised ways to operate technology and means their items are as compatible as possible with other devices.

HDMI High Definition Multimedia Interface. A compact interface for transmitting uncompressed audio or video data; this is a way of connecting everything from Blu-Ray and DVD players, to games consoles and set top boxes, to your digital television or computer monitor. Digital TVs will often have up to four HDMI connections.

Check the product specifications online for all the information you need before you decide whether LCD TVs or Plasma TVs are right for you.

The internet is full of wonderful information, educational services, as well as a great place to connect with people. Scams on the internet create a dark world that can ruin your online experience. If you are not Cyber Street smart you could end up the victim of one of these internet scams.

One of the scams on the internet is getting more attention these days. The Nigerian scam. You will receive an email that states an introduction from some poor retched rich man who needs to have a large sum of money transferred out of the country. In exchange for transferring the millions of dollars to your personal account he will offer you a small percentage as a thank you. You agree, the nice person you are and think wow what a great way to get some easy money. The problem is you don’t see a dime and your account begins to be emptied as you are charged for many fees that are needed to handle this large transaction that never comes.

There have been many a poor soul fall for these scams on the internet and never been able to retrieve their lost funds. The greedier you are the dumber you become. It is amazing how some of us fail to realize that there would be no need to trust a stranger with that amount of money in this day and age. But still many will agree to it and fall for the scam, losing everything they own at times in hopes that a stranger will send them thousands of dollars in return for their kindness.

Any email that you receive that is similar to these scams or other scams on the internet you should report to the proper authorities. It is best to not open any emails that you are not familiar with the sender. You can end up in loads of trouble as there are new scams on the internet being created each day.

Mount Saint Helens, 1994. Biking up to Johnston Ridge
live news

Memories from the eruption.

Where my sisters were living, it was one of those first really nice spring days of the year in Pullman, Washington, about 265 miles east of the volcano. People were coming home from church, working in the garden and planning to eat dinner out on the deck when a huge black cloud started to appear on the horizon.

It was ash from Mt. St. Helens, but most people didn’t know it, unless they had the news on. The cloud got bigger and bigger until it shut out the sun, but it wasn’t really a storm. No rain or wind, just darkness. With in an hour, or two, that sunny afternoon was transformed into the dark of night. Street lights came on. It was as black as midnight.

Meanwhile, here in Bellingham, where I was, I didn’t know what was happening. It was a typical spring day over here, even though Bellingham is a little closer to the mountain than Pullman. The wind carried the ash to the east. Eventually, I heard the news on TV and I felt cheated that I was missing the excitement. Life in most of Western Washington was deceptively normal.

Then the radio reported that people had heard the blast as far away as Vancouver, BC. about 50 miles farther from the mountain than Bellingham. I tried to remember what I was doing, at that moment, and realized I had heard the blast also. It sounded like someone was trying to break into my place of work as the front door was being pushed against and rattling on its hinges. At the time, I didn’t pay that much attention as no one was at the door, but later I realized it was shock waves from Mt. St. Helens.

The night after the eruption, my sister Lillian called me from Pullman, phones were still working. She said she didn’t know when she was going to see the sun again. It was a spooky feeling, but next day, the sun did come out. The hazy sunshine revealed a gritty world. It looked like everything was covered in talcum powder. Every time someone tried to walk out doors, or even worse drive, it would kick up a cloud that would obscure visibility. Schools had to close for the rest of the season, business ground to a halt, the grit did damage to any cars that tried to drive in it.

Unlike a big snow fall, which eventually melts away, this stuff had to be shoveled up and hauled away. It took months for the clean up, but Pullman’s people remember the event with great fondness. They got to witness geology in action.

Here in Bellingham, I missed most of the action, but, in 1986 and again in 1994, I bicycled into the Mt. St. Helens area. Under this tag are some images of the devastation as seen from Windy Ridge on the east in 1986 and Johnston Ridge on the west in 1994.
