色温度について 色温度について 光源の種類と色温度の分布 晴天より曇天の方が色温度は高いのです。 光源には様々な種類があります。例えば太陽の光。 ちょっと子供チックな絵ですが、(苦笑)日中の太陽の色温度は5500Kを基準とし、天候の状況により多少前後します。 また、ロウソクの炎は2000K、白熱灯は2800K、蛍光灯では4200K程度になります。 ただし、上記の数値はあくまでも目安で、細かいことを言えば、蛍光灯で一般に多く出回っているものに「電球色」「昼白色」「昼光色」など発光する色の違う種類があり、それぞれ色温度も違います。 K:ケルビンって何? ケルビンって人の名前?? 馴染みが少ない単位の「K:ケルビン」大抵の説明サイトでは「黒体を熱した時に放出される光の波長が変わることに・・・」とあります。 なにやら黒いものを熱していくと光が出てくる? 例えば真っ黒な「炭」を熱していくと、やがて火が着きメラメラと赤く燃え、更に空気を送ると温度の上昇と共にオレンジ色に変わります。 K:ケルビンで表される数値は、絶対零度=摂氏マイナス273度を「0(ゼロ)K」として表されています。 参考までに「K」は大文字表記が正しく、名前の由来は「ケルビンさん」ではなく、ウィリアム・トムソン氏(後に男爵、ケルウ゛ィン卿)にちなんで付けられたそうです。

The 25th edition of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival is set to launch next month, bringing 11 days worth of visual storytelling to theaters in New York City. Centered around five themes -- Armed Conflict and the Arab Spring; Human Rights Defenders, Icons and Villains; LGBT Rights; Migrants’ Rights; and Women’s Rights and Children’s Rights -- the festival will pay homage to justice advocates and icons across the world. The festival began over two decades ago, as a series of films shown in a small NYC theater, but has since grown to accommodate over 100,000 viewers in 20 cities around the globe. According to the HRW, the festival's programming committee screens more than 500 films and videos to create the final program. This year, the event will host 20 documentaries and two fiction films, including 16 features by women. Ahead of the official launch date, June 12, we've put together a list of 10 films to watch out for during the many screenings and premieres. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 10 Films Every Human Rights Advocate Should Watch 10 Films Every Human Rights Advocate Should Watch

If you’re like me – a couch-potato with a serious TV addiction – then Netflix really is something of a God-send. There are more and more classic series and movies being added to the streaming site’s extensive library that it’s almost daunting. Then there’s the fact that lately Netflix has been making a host of quality content of its own, commissioning original shows or reboots of old ones to include in the roster. The only trouble is, it can be a bit aggravating trying to navigate all those menus and preferences to try and find the show that’s right for you. If only there was a way to make this simpler, so you could tailor your idle browsing and channel-hopping to suit your own personal tastes. Netflix is now available in nearly every country on earth. Netflix has a vast list of categories that go far beyond the bog standard genres like “action”, “drama”, “horror” and the others you might encounter on the homepage.

11 Animated Shorts in Mexico's Indigenous Languages 11 Animated Shorts in Mexico's Indigenous Languages To residents of the Americas, Europe can seem like a tower of Babel with dozens upon dozens of languages crammed into a small geographical space and vying endlessly for dominance or survival. On this side of the world things are much simpler: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and a few Dutch speakers make communication generally much smoother across the continent, along with a few New World Patois thrown into the mix for good measure. At least so the thinking goes. In reality, the American continent is a place of vast linguistic diversity, with more language families found solely in Mexico than in the entirety of the European continent. And with each language comes a particular vision of the world, an inimitable expressivity, a treasure trove of wisdom accrued over the centuries and codified in words and idioms. Yet these languages struggle desperately for survival in the midst of a post-colonial landscape dominated by a small handful of European languages. [h/t: Global Voices]
Binge watching good commercials can be just as entertaining as the shows! Thanks to the #langchat community, here are some great videos to get you started. Plus I added a few follow up activities that you can use immediately. “I can” Statements Here are some generic “I can” statements that could be used with most of these commercials. I can describe a commercial.I can tell how a commercial makes me feel.I can give my opinion about a commercial.I can identify products and practices from the culture.I can explain how a commercial reflects the perspectives of the culture. Note: If you keep this in the target language, then you are doing so much to support our 5 C’s! Authentic Resources I encourage you to watch the videos, especially if you do not speak the language fluently. French Merci to Wendy Farabaugh for sharing this sweet one.

The conformist is 1930s Italian Marcello Clerici (Jean-Louis Trintignant), a coward who has spent his life accommodating others so that he can "belong." Marcello agrees to kill a political refugee, on orders from the Fascist government, even though the victim-to-be is his college mentor. The film is a character study of the kind of person who willingly "conforms" to the ideological fashions of his day. In this case, director Bernardo Bertolucci suggests that Marcello's desire to conform is rooted in his latent homosexuality. In addition to its strong storyline, the film is critically revered for the astonishing production design by Nedo Azzini, which, together with Vittorio Storaro's camerawork, recreates the atmosphere of Fascist Italy with some of the most complex visual compositions ever seen on film, filled with highly stylized uses of angles, shapes, and shadows. rottentomatoes
rottentomatoes Hero is two-time Academy Award nominee Zhang Yimou's directorial attempt at exploring the concept of a Chinese hero. During the peak of their Warring States period, China was divided into seven kingdoms all fighting for supremacy. Most determined to dominate China was the kingdom of Qin, whose king (Chen Daoming) was wholly obsessed with becoming the first emperor of China. Though he was an assassination target for many, none of his would-be killers inspired as much fear as the legendary assassins Broken Sword (Tony Leung), Flying Snow (Maggie Cheung), and Sky (Donnie Yen). In hopes of thwarting his death, the king has promised endless wealth and power to anyone who defeats his would-be murderers.
rottentomatoes This sweeping, highly literate historical epic covers the Allies' mideastern campaign during World War I as seen through the eyes of the enigmatic T. E. Lawrence (Peter O'Toole, in the role that made him a star). After a prologue showing us Lawrence's ultimate fate, we flash back to Cairo in 1917.
