Color Blind Chart Pattern baldness in men is a sex-influenced trait. It is not an X-linked trait like color blindness and hemophilia. Baldness is an autosomal trait and is apparently influenced by sex hormones after people reach 30 years of age or older. If B is the allele for baldness and b is the allele for normal hair, a bald man can be heterozygous (Bb) or homozygous bald (BB). If you are a man with a bald father, you are doomed to lose your hair if your father is homozygous bald (BB). If your grandfather on the mother's side of your family is bald, then you have a 50-50 chance of inheriting this gene from your mother: If your grandfather on the mother's side of your family is bald and your father is heterozygous bald, then you have a 75% chance of losing your hair: If your grandfather on the mother's side of your family is bald and your father is homozygous bald, then you have a 100% chance of losing your hair: Baldness Thinking Question

On the Horizon , its time to fly with modern color theory (concepts) A Scientific Theory of Color Vision. For many centuries, the behavior of color mixtures was difficult to explain because material color, which seemed to be anchored in "real" objects of the external world, was conceptually distinguished from the "illusory" colors in rainbows or prisms. The two types of mixtures behaved differently, but the reason for the difference was unknown. The trichromatic theory provided the clarifying explanation and prediction of all color sensations as arising in the behavior of the eye. Subtractive Color Mixture. The principles of subtractive color mixture are not a rigorous theory at all. Subtractive mixing theory imitates the main features of additive color theory, and to understand the problems with subtractive color mixing, we need to unmask these points of imitation one by one. Subtractive Mixtures Occur in Substances. In principle, subtractive color theory ought to be able to explain the color changes that occur in any kind of material mixture. 36. 37.

DIY: Pallet sofa Thank you so much for your input on my flea market find yesterday. I appreciate your thoughts, and I will absolutely think twice before I paint it. I´ll probably keep it as it is – at least for now *smile* Anyway I thought I would show you our “pallet sofa” on our balcony today. I have made one out of two pallets covered with pillows and throws.As a table I have used an old wooden crate, so I can decorate with flowers and candles, or simply to have a place to put my coffee. So if you have a small budget for your outside area this year, maybe you can make something similar to my pallet sofa? Do you have any other pallet ideas? (Images: Nina Holst)

Top 75 Network Security Tools Goethe on the Psychology of Color and Emotion Color is an essential part of how we experience the world, both biologically and culturally. One of the earliest formal explorations of color theory came from an unlikely source — the German poet, artist, and politician Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who in 1810 published Theory of Colors (public library; public domain), his treatise on the nature, function, and psychology of colors. Though the work was dismissed by a large portion of the scientific community, it remained of intense interest to a cohort of prominent philosophers and physicists, including Arthur Schopenhauer, Kurt Gödel, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. One of Goethe’s most radical points was a refutation of Newton’s ideas about the color spectrum, suggesting instead that darkness is an active ingredient rather than the mere passive absence of light. YELLOWThis is the color nearest the light. Brain Pickings has a free weekly newsletter.

Understand color theory with these 7 facts - = Designer Blog Color is everywhere – in nature, in cities, in stores, online. We’re so used to it we often don’t notice it’s even there, until we suddenly come across a black and white movie on TV. Then we remember how good it is that we have such a colorful world. For that reason alone, if not for improving your design skill set, knowing how color works is a good thing to do. So let’s dive in! 1. Might sound strange but it’s true. Color is created only when our brain tries to make sense from light signals it receives from the outer world. Deprived of color, our world would probably look like a scene from Matrix. Without that, our world is a monochromatic place bathing in electromagnetic radiation of varied intensity and wavelengths. The key takeout? 2.
