Joke of the Day

A college student challenged a senior citizen, saying it was impossible for their generation to understand his. “You grew up in a different world,” the student said. “Today we have television, jet planes, space travel, nuclear energy, computers…” Taking advantage of a pause in the student’s litany, the geezer said, “You’re right. We didn’t have those things when we were young; so we invented them! What are you doing for the next generation??”

Double Rainbow over looking Kleskun Valley

What causes double rainbows? Why is the order of the colors reversed?

January 8, 2008

While on vacation recently our family saw a double rainbow. How do these occur? Why did the second faint rainbow (which was on top of the first) have the opposite color sequence?

Ah, rainbows – those will-o’-the-wisps of ethereal beauty, made possible only by a full lineup of optics phenomena. Let’s run down the list:

1. Refraction. When a ray of sunlight strikes a raindrop, the ray refracts, or bends, at the point where it passes out of the air and into the water of the drop. The angle of the bend is determined by (a) the intrinsic light-transmitting properties of air and water (every transparent substance has its own individual index of refraction) and (b) the angle at which the ray strikes the surface of the spherical droplet – whether, e.g., it hits the drop squarely or strikes a glancing blow off to one side.

2. Dispersion. Meanwhile, the drop is acting as a prism, splitting the white light of the ray into its component colors by refracting the different wavelengths at different angles: red wavelengths bend a certain amount, orange wavelengths a slightly different amount, and so on.

3. Internal reflection. Most of the light striking the raindrop passes straight through it and out the far side, but some of it reflects off the rear interior surface of the drop and is sent in some new direction. The ratio of light transmitted to light reflected is, once again, a function of the angle at which the ray hits the surface.

Katy Perry, Russell Brand Buy Sunset Strip-Area Compound For $6.5M

Katy Perry, Russell Brand Buy Sunset Strip-Area Compound For $6.5M

July 23, 2011

Singer Katy Perry and comic actor Russell Brand have bought a Sunset Strip-area compound from former National Lampoon Chief Executive Daniel Laikin for $6.5 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.

Perry and Brand are selling their Los Feliz compound, a $3,395,000 listing that was on the market in May for just nine days before entering escrow.

The gated Mediterranean-style house they acquired was built in 1925 and sits on nearly 3 acres with a guesthouse and swimming pool. It features a baronial stone foyer with sweeping staircase, stained-glass windows and a carved fireplace mantel in the living room, a pub, a study and a media room. Including a four-room master suite, two guest suites and staff quarters, the house has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Perry, 26, is on a nine-month California Dreams tour, which follows her 2010 album, “Teenage Dream.” Brand, 36, starred in this year’s remake of “Arthur” and is filming “Rock of Ages,” which is to be released next year. The couple, who own another residence in New York, were married in October.

Laikin, a former home builder, was found guilty last year in federal court of manipulating the stock price of the comedy film company. He had bought the property in 2004 for $4.5 million. The compound came on the market in November at $7,995,000.

Barry Sloane of Sotheby’s International Realty, Beverly Hills, had the listing, and Ernie Carswell of Teles Properties, Beverly Hills, represented the buyers, according to the MLS.
