Are you a tetrachromat? I know now that I am.


I found this on LinkedinIt's interesting! Well, I can see the 39 stripes. I am a tetrachromat. And no,I really don't get upset by the yellow color, there is a yellow shirt in my wardrobe. It was a gift. It's not my favorite. I don't like to dress in yellow! I just wish my eyes were in better condition than they are, no matter how many colors I can spot in the test! Last November I started with a new pair of eyeglasses and I am still adapting!
"Given the sudden interest for the color of dresses and vision, here some of the fascinating findings we did recently.
The color nuances we see depend on the number and distribution of cones (=color receptors) in our eye. You can check this rainbow: how many color nuances do you count?
You see less than 20 color nuances: you are a dichromats, like dogs, which means you have 2 types of cones only. You are likely to wear black, beige, and blue. 25% of the population is dichromat.
You see between 20 and 32 color nuances: you are a trichromat, you have 3 types of cones (in the purple/blue, green and red area). You enjoy different colors as you can appreciate them. 50% of the population is trichromat.
You see between 33 and 39 colors: you are a tetrachromat, like bees, and have 4 types of cones (in the purple/blue, green, red plus yellow area). You are irritated by yellow, so this color will be nowhere to be found in your wardrobe. 25% of the population is tetrachromat.
You see more than 39 color nuances: come on, you are making up things! there are only 39 different colors in the test and probably only 35 are properly translated by your computer screen anyway :)
It is highly probable that people who have an additional 4th cone do not get tricked by blue/black or white/gold dresses, no matter the background light. "

3 Doodler, it's a kind of magic!



It's just like a pen that draws 3D objects in the air. Working in a similar way to a glue gun, 3Doodler 2.0 melts plastic filament in its body and extrudes the liquid from its tip. The plastic cools quickly, solidifying in the air and creating a stable structure! It's a kind of magic, right?!

Go green on St. Patrick's Day!

How are you going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

March 17th 2015 is the day Irish celebrate the patron Saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. He was the one who converted the pagans to Christianity. The celebration has spread to become a worldwide event. Lots of Irish descendants live in America. St. Patrick's Day has become a cultural celebration in America and across the world.  Irish and non-Irish alike join the party! And you? Will you celebrate it?

May the Irish hills caress you;
may her lakes and rivers bless you;
may the luck of the Irish enfold you;
may the blessings of St Patrick behold you

Go muirní cnoic na hÉireann thú.
Go mbeannaí a lochanna agus a haibhneacha thú.
Go dtimpeallaí an ádh Eireannach thú.
Go bhféacha tú beannachtaí Lá Fhéile Phádraig



(Irish sayings, proverbs and prayers for St. Patrick's Day here!)


Is there a special food to prepare on March 17th? Every March I see a lot of Irish St. Patrick recipes on blogs and Pinterest. This time I decided to learn what's the main dish for the occasion. After a search I found an interesting site called European Cuisines.  I was surprised to discover that "there's no particular food that's important to Saint Patrick's Day as it's celebrated in Ireland. Over here, the celebration itself is what matters. And it can safely be said that an overwhelming majority of the locals will not be eating corned beef and cabbage. " There's lot of interesting information in this site, like What do Irish people eat. I am not fond of cooking but from time to time I like to try recipes from other countries. It looks like various forms of soda bread are popular throughout Ireland. Bread is a undisputed thing. Never met a person that dislikes bread!Maybe I will try it because it's different from the usual bread I eat. I also enjoyed the Irish Coffee Cake recipe so I am providing the link for you. And if you're fond of Irish Coffee I also found the original recipe here

GO GREEN ON ST.PATRICK DAY WITH COOL TEE SHIRTS FROM ZAZZLE 

St. Patrick's Day - as you may know by now - is a cultural and religious holiday named in honor of the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick used a shamrock as a metaphor for the Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). Then his parishioners began wearing shamrocks to his church services. The wearing of the green on St. Patrick's Day represents spring, shamrocks and Ireland, a very green island. St. Patrick's Day t-shirts have been a common article of clothing to wear on this occasion! Here's my selection of Zazzle St.Patrick Day's tshirts! Have a look!
