Summary POLITICAL ADVERTISINGAround election time voters are bombarded with advertisements and posters for political parties. We look at who pays for the this campaigning and find out that not all parties have the same budget. We also explore how effective adverts can be and examine why parties target particular areas and sections of the community. PLANE TALKINGAustralians could soon be able to use their mobile phones on aeroplanes. Phones are currently banned because of their potential to interfere with navigational equipment, but new technology means that's no longer the case. We examine how the technology has changed and what the implications could be for air travel. PET DISPLAYSIt's common to see cats and dogs displayed in pet shop windows. We meet a school girl who's trying to get the practice banned. Is it cruel and does it encourage impulse buying, rather than responsible pet ownership? Or is it simply the most effective way of finding homes for puppies and kittens? FRESH JUICESometimes juice can be labelled fresh, even if parts of it have been heated up and stored for up to a year. A few months ago, there was a lot of talk about it in the media, with many people calling for a change to the way juice is labelled. So where is that fight now? And how can we tell the difference between the different types of juice on supermarket shelves? SCHOOL SPORTImagine a sports match played in front of a packed stadium of 95,000 spectators, with an extra 200,000 outside watching on a big screen. It's not the World Cup or the AFL Grand Final... this is school sport American style. American college football is big business and draws huge crowds. And one Aussie teenager is experiencing it for the first time after taking a punt on a career in American football
