Orange sky over snowy cornfield
1. What a difference Daylight Saving Time makes! The sun will set over Toronto today at 7:20 p.m.
2. Colourful sunsets are caused by tiny particles in the atmosphere that scatter the direction of light rays. (Hey, maybe air pollution is not always all that bad.) When the sun is low on the horizon, light rays travel through more molecules that scatter blue and violet rays, allowing yellow, orange and red to reach our eyes.
3. To make orange-coloured paint, you mix red with yellow - not GREEN and red, right? Well, did you know that in the system used to create colours on a TV or computer screen (RGB colour model) orange is made by combining a GREEN light with higher intensity red light? The blue light (the B in RBG) is turned off. You can learn more by clicking HERE.
4. Cursive writing has been removed from the school curriculum in at least two Canadian provinces and some forty U.S. states. Does that mean future generations won't be able to read old postcards found in antique shops and letters found in the attic?
5. Sadly, I cannot think of anything else to say!
