OHP missile frigates for american allies


As reported by the service, the US House of Representatives has agreed to donate or sell eight Oliver Hazard Perry units. Their new owners will be: Taiwan, Mexico and Thailand.

Taiwan plans to buy four frigates, $ 10 million per piece, which will certainly not meet China's approval. These will be USS Taylor (FFG 50), USS Gary (FFG 51), USS Carr (FFG 52) and USS Elrod (FFG 55).

The remaining four will be distributed free of charge to Mexican navies: USS Curts (FFG 38) and USS McClusky (FFG 41) and Thailand: USS Rentz (FFG 46) and USS Vandegrift (FFG 48).

In similar fashion, several years ago (2000 and 2002), the Polish Navy became the owner of two OHP missile frigates. These were USS Clark (FFG-11) - ORP Gen. K. Pulaski and USS Wadsworth (FFG-9) - ORP Gen. T. Kosciuszko.

These frigates are considered obsolete in America and are slowly withdrawn from service. Their name also does not reflect the nature of the ships, because they no longer have rockets, so they should not be called "rockets."

More information about the OHP frigate can be found in the gallery.

Three-dimensional dizziness


The first three-dimensional projection was conducted in the United States in the 1920s. On a larger scale, three-dimensional films appeared in the 70s and 80s, also in the USA. At the same time, the inhabitants had the opportunity to view three-dimensional images in Baikal's cinema. Commune ruled, and then Soviet productions were as gray as communist life.

Since James Cameron's "Avatars" premiere everything has changed. Like mushrooms after the rain, there are more movies that unfortunately have nothing to do with the effects that Cameron achieved in his film. Their creators are only attracting the viewer to the cinema and of course the profits from the tickets sold. Judging by the movie rooms, most of us are fooled into thinking that.

In my opinion, 3D productions should strive to achieve such effects that we can see practically only in cinemas specially created for this purpose. If I go to a 3D movie, let butterflies fly around me, it's raining and the train's going to scare me! I want to feel this thrill of emotions, not just to see the depth of space that is ubiquitous in the latest productions.

Unfortunately, the possibility of making big money was also noticed by producers of RTV devices. In fact, for the past two years, we've heard new 3D TVs, Blu-ray players, cameras, and even recently launched a portable gaming console.

First time with a three-dimensional TV home I was in contact in 2010 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. From this event all the fairs have become boring. The whole business centered around the devices that display the image began to revolve around 3D. In addition, special glasses - passive or active (snapshot) are required for watching movies and 3D images. This is probably one of the biggest disadvantages of this technology. The glasses are mostly big, uncomfortable and ugly, and why should I wear them if I have good eyesight? Maybe to spoil it?

"A 3D image may have a potentially negative effect on the user, causing motion sickness, vision problems, confusion, eye fatigue, or problems with maintaining a good posture ..."

Of course, long fatigue before the computer monitor can also cause posture defects, but such warnings freeze the blood in the veins. What to do with this? Buy a new TV or not?

First of all, to get the true 3D effect you need a big screen. The best …

Three-dimensional LG TVs


LG is preparing for 2010 a whole series of products that support 3D technology - including projectors and 42- to 72-inch diagonal screens.

In addition to the first three-dimensional Full HD LCD monitor, the company

LG is gearing up next year for a real 3D technology assault. In 2010, three-dimensional projectors will be on the market, as well as 42- to 72-inch LCD TVs. Currently, the South Korean manufacturer offers 47-inch LCD TVs with 47LH503D on its home market, but plans to expand its presence in Europe and North America next year.

In 2010, LG plans to sell about 400,000 3D TVs and 3.4 million units next year, as it believes in the demand for such products and the support of game developers, TV stations, consoles and other companies.
