Please remember to set your clocks back by one hour on Sunday 25th October 2009 at 02.00 Hours GMT and gain an extra hour for that extended shut eye. Alternatively feel free to use your extra hour to make the most of the wide range of events and activities taking place across London, be it something spooky for Halloween, a night on the town, a quality taste experience or even something more cultured. You can find a whole host of events and venues posted on I like it a lot.

An X ray machine which makes thermal images of passengers has been introduced at manchester airport as a pilot set up to help staff spot hidden weapons or explosives. The full body scanner at Manchester Airport can also identify breast enlargements, piercings, false limbs and genitals. Passengers have the choice of the traditional hand pat body search or the virtual strip search. The X Ray machine has been described as generating naked images and for this reason the images are deleted immediately and are only seen by a single member of staff in an isolated room. Manufacturers Rapiscan have said that the images are in no way pornographic and will make the check in more efficient as passengers will not have to remove shoes, belts or coats. The department of transport will decided after a year of trials whether to install these machines at British Airports.
Searching question: many suspicious items highlighted on a scanned image.
Here is another example of the x ray scanners accuracy courtesy of youtube:
MTV presents TMF rebranded as VIVA.The launch date is Monday 26 October from 4pm. Viva boasts new episodes of The Hills and Pants Off Dance Off. There’s also a brand new racing car show called Slips that’s hosted by Huey Morgan which will see two aspiring racing drivers pimp their vehicles and then race each other, think legal drag race and true to the illegal drag race subculture rules the winner takes home both cars. X factor winner and chart topper Alexandra Burke will present as well as performing tracks from her new album. As I was at the taping of VIVA live at MTV I can confirm that she really is a brilliant vocal talent and a true performer. Alexandra performed Hallelujah and They don’t know and Bad Boys in that order.
I have managed to secure myself tickets for Beyonce, Kanye West et al however when attempting to buy Jay-Z tickets this is never a successful transaction. After failing to obtain tickets for the Roundhouse, more tickets for the Alexandra Palace, 4th November show were on sale. I was ready from 8.45am with credit card in hand, heart beat racing while I was simultaneously attempting to book online and talk to the ticket master agent. After completing the online search form there were no tickets, thinking I had been clever I waited on the phone operative to search for my tickets. Only for him to tell me that the one hundred VIP tickets that were being released this morning had sold out. What is a real fan supposed to do?
