QUOTE: Success, Emerson


“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Great Place to Live

Canada is one of the best countries in the world to live, learn and work.  From wide-open spaces to the most cosmopolitan places, Canada offers beauty, variety and an enviable quality of life.  Canada is a place where people can realize their dreams, where families can enjoy a standard of living second to none, and where businesses enjoy a competitive edge.

Canada flagStrong and Free

Canadians are hard-working, ambitious people who are proud of their successful, independent country. They want better lives for themselves, their children and future generations. They believe in tolerance, justice and providing a helping hand to the less fortunate. More than empty promises, equality is enshrined in Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the country’s Constitution, guaranteeing freedom and fairness for all.

Equality and Multiculturalism

Canada is a large country in both size and spirit. Canada ranks first among the G7 countries in providing equal opportunities for individuals, whether native-born or a new arrival. Canadians welcome immigrants from around the globe. Almost all of the world’s ethnic groups are represented in Canada, creating one of the world’s most culturally diverse and multilingual societies, with over 200 languages spoken. Canada is also a world leader in integrating newcomers, with progressive immigration laws highly conducive to hiring foreign workers.

Beautiful Rainbow

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?

— nyount

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.

Grumpy, Lumpy, Men Syndrome

Remember what it was like to be a teenager?

That lean, muscular physique never seemed to gain an ounce of fat no
matter how much you ate (or drank). Do you now find yourself patting
your belly more then you pat your dog? If so, you could well be
experiencing a loss of your male hormone–testosterone.Testosterone is
one of a group of hormones referred to as the androgens. In men it is
responsible for the development of the sex organs and male
characteristics such as facial hair, deepening of the voice, and muscle
development.
