TIDBITS® GETS ILLUMINATED WITH

NIGHT LIGHTS by Patricia L. Cook

Children who are afraid of the dark often need a small night light to help them overcome their fear. This Tidbits is about small and large lights in the dark as well as neon lights that shine in some pretty fancy ways! • Even on very dark nights, if you let your eyes adjust it is possible for most people to see well enough to walk around. • The moon at night shining in the dark is not actually a light source since it does not produce its own light. The moon is visible because of the sun’s light that bounces off of it back to earth. When we see different phases (or sizes) of the moon it is because the earth revolves around the sun and the moon orbits the earth. The part of the moon that is reflecting depends on the angles or relative positions of the earth, moon and sun.

• The earth’s orbit also changes our view of the stars at night even though the stars are in fixed patterns. Astronomers who named many of the stars and constellations (named patterns of stars) years ago gave them Greek and Roman names that are still used today.

• The most well-known constellations are the “Big Dipper” and “Little Dipper.” The “dippers” are part of Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, which mean Greater Bear and Smaller Bear. turn the page for more!

large quantities. Claude made his first neon light in 1902 and first displayed his invention at the Paris Motor Show in December, 1910, with two 39 foot long (12 m) bright red tubes of neon light.

NIGHT LIGHTS (continued):

• Many children the world over hear a song about the night sky long before they learn to talk. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star was published by Jane Taylor and her sister, Ann, in England in 1806. Their second book of children’s poems, Rhymes for the Nursery, includes the poem, The Star, written with five verses. Only the first verse is widely sung, with an occasional addition of verse two.

• The tune for Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star is actually older than the poem. It originated in France, first seen in print in Paris in 1761. The tune was first associated with a French song, Ah! Vous dirai-je, Maman, which is translated Ah! Will I tell you Mommy. It is still popular with French children.

• Another “tune” that came from Paris was the quiet buzz of neon lights. Georges Claude, a chemist, engineer, and inventor was a pioneer in the development of neon lighting.

• Neon gas was first discovered in 1898. The word neon was chosen for the gas from the Greek word “neos” which means “new gas.” • Two predecessors to neon lights were the Geissler Moore tubes that used pressurized gas in tubes with electric volts to make colorful lights. When neon was discovered it proved to be a more lasting gas for tube lights. Neon was in short supply until Georges Claude’s company, “Air Liquide,” began producing

• Claude received his first patent for neon lighting in Paris in 1911 and another in the United States in 1915.

• (There is some historical evidence that Perley G. Nutting, a physicist who started the Optical Society of America, displayed the first neon light at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in 1904.)

• The first commercial neon sign was sold to a barber shop in Paris in 1912, by Jaques Fonseque, an associate of Claude.

• When red and blue tubes of neon lights were installed decorating the Paris Opera House in 1919, the colors became known as “Opera Colors.”

• Claude sold the first neon sign in America, actually two, to a Packard Car dealership in Los Angeles in 1923. The price: $24,000! Neon quickly caught on in the advertising world.

• The “liquid fire” signs began dominating outdoor advertising displays in American cities from Times Square in New York to Los Angeles. Las Vegas quickly became a city filled with neon on the borders of signs and buildings, architectural accents and even neon animations.

• Today, many of the first neon signs and displays in Las Vegas have become part of the Neon Museum. The Museum has three components: the Downtown Gallery, the

▶ Alert, on the tip of Ellesmere Island, is the northernmost permanent settlement in the world. It has a population of about five, centered around a weather station located there. It’s 817 km (508) miles from the North Pole, and 2,092 km (1,300 mi) from the nearest city of Iqaluit. ▶ North America’s lowest recorded temperature was -81.4 degrees Fahrenheit (-63 C) at Snag, Yukon Territory, on February 3, 1947. ▶ Charles Fenerty of Halifax, Nova Scotia, was the first person to use wood fibers to make paper. His father owned a lumber mill, and when he toured a paper mill where paper was made from rags, he noticed many similarities in the two mills. He started experimenting in 1839 and produced paper from wood pulp in 1841. ▶ Canada’s oldest independent brewery, the Moosehead Brewery in Saint John, New Brunswick, turns out 1,642 bottles of beer per minute. ▶ When Michael J. Fox appeared as a guest on “The Tonight Show” he told Jay Leno that he found American beers too watery and preferred Moosehead Ale. This boosted the popularity of the brew. Shortly afterwards, the company gifted the actor with a large truckload of the brew in appreciation.

Laughing Matters Tom, Dick and Harry went to a party. After the party they returned to their hotel. The hotel was 600 stories high. Unfortunately for them, the elevator was not working. So to keep them entertained as they climbed the stairs to their room they made a plan. For the first 200 stories, Tom will crack jokes. For the second 200 stories Dick will tell a happy story. And for the final 200 stories Harry will tell a sad story. Excited about their great plan, they started up the steps. After 2 hours it was Harry’s turn. He turned to Tom and Dick and said, “Ok guys, here’s my sad story. I forgot the keys downstairs.”

Neon Boneyard, and the Las Vegas Signs project.

• By the way, Georges Claude was imprisoned from 1945-1949 by the French government for collaborating with the Germans in World War II.

• Claude’s patents were good but they did not stop others from “taking off” from his work. Charles J. Wamser created his sign company with neon technology that was slightly different from Claude’s patents.

• Wamser’s company, Sheet Metal Products, Inc., was started in a rented garage in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and started mass producing signs in the late 1920s. His company, now named Everbrite, is still a worldwide leader in the lighting and branding of companies.

• Many of the “neon” signs that dotted the landscapes in North America were not all neon. People use the name “neon” for lights of all colors but actually neon lights are red. Other gases used with neon produce different colors. Argon is most widely used, along with mercury and phosphor. There are now over 150 colors that can be produced. • Neon signs were most popular in the 1950s. By the 1960s neon lights were being replaced with cheaper lighting.

• As in fashion, many things of old come back

Q: My 4-year-old Red-boned Coonhound has been obedience trained; we’ve done everything we can to train him off-leash. However, he still breaks free from his lead, leaves the yard and runs off, returning half an hour later. We’ve never had a dog behave this way before. What’s your solution? A: Pet writer Kim Campbell Thornton suggests: “Work with a good trainer on teaching a reliable ‘come.’” Thornton, author of “Careers with Dogs” (BowTie Press, Irvine, CA, 2010; $24.94), adds, “Perhaps this dog isn’t returning, or you’re not there to call the dog. It doesn’t really matter. You have a hound dog that is ruled by his nose.” Charlene LaBelle, author of “A Guide to Backpacking with Your Dog” (Apline/Blue Ribbon, Crawford, CO, 2004; $12.95), agrees. “A hound’s instinct is to run, and you know that’s the case with your dog,” she notes. “So, be sure that your dog is wearing an ID tag and is microchipped. The reality, which you may not like, is that leash equals love.” Also, make sure that in addition to a dog tag and microchipping, you register with the microchip provider. You indicated that your dog breaks free from his lead. If you literally mean he regularly breaks from his leash or harness, you need to fit him with another. This problem shouldn’t happen repeatedly.

Enlisting the help of his best friend Stanley, they invent multiple “cover stories” that grow until they get entirely out of control... and then when Stanley’s slightly crazy father arrives to go on holiday, things really get absurd.

DVD Reviews “JACK REACHER’’: The driving force behind one action franchise with “Mission: Impossible,’’ Tom Cruise aimed to launch another with this enjoyably tough melodrama centered around novelist Lee Child’s title character, an ex-military man trying to determine whether a former Army sniper is at the heart of several Pittsburgh murders. Rosamund Pike (“Die Another Day’’), Richard Jenkins, Robert Duvall and filmmaker Werner Herzog also star for directorscreenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who won an Oscar for his script for “The Usual Suspects’’ and also co-wrote “Valkyrie’’ for Cruise. *** “MAMA’’: While she was making the award-season rounds for “Zero Dark Thirty,’’ Jessica Chastain projected a much different screen image as the rather Goth heroine of this horror tale from executive producer Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth’’). She plays the girlfriend of the uncle (Nikolaj CosterWaldau, “Game of Thrones’’) of two children who vanished after their father killed their mother, and when they’re located several years later, very spooky doings accompany their return. Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nelisse are effectively eerie as the youngsters. DVD extras: “making-of ’’ documentary; audio commentary by director and co-writer Andres Muschietti and producer and co-writer Barbara Muschietti; deleted scenes. *** “SAFE HAVEN’’: Sincere performances, lovely scenery and other familiar elements of other Nicholas Sparks-based films - and a few new twists - factor into this drama, another trademark Sparks tale of a

complicated romance. A woman (Julianne Hough) on the run has to face her past and consider her future when she is drawn to a North Carolina widower (Josh Duhamel). Her new neighbor (Cobie Smulders, “How I Met Your Mother’’) tries to help her work through her maze of emotions. Lasse Hallstrom, who also guided the Sparks-inspired “Dear John,’’ directed the film. *** “ROOKIE BLUE: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON’’: The Canadian cops - including Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym), who ended the previous season on suspension for her romance with colleague Sam Swarek (Ben Bass) - get back to business in this round of the drama, coming to home video just before Season 4 of the series begins May 23 on ABC. William Shatner guest stars in the first episode, which finds the rookies greeting a new war veteran peer (Peter Mooney) who has a past with Officer Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan). Gregory Smith, alias the show’s Dov Epstein, also directed one of the stories. *** “STEEL MAGNOLIAS’’: The Robert Harling play fueled a movie version that has remained muchloved, thanks in large part to its all-star gathering of actresses, and it also fuels this Lifetime remake that unites many African-American performers. A Louisiana beauty shop remains the prime meeting place for the characters played by Queen Latifah (also an executive producer of the film), Phylicia Rashad (“The Cosby Show’’), Alfre Woodard and actressmusician Jill Scott. *** “THE ORANGES’’: Two New Jersey families are brought closer together in a way they never anticipated in this comedy about a May-December romance, with Leighton Meester (“Gossip Girl’’) and Hugh Laurie (“House’’) playing the couple. The news does not go over well when others eventually learn of the affair. Catherine Keener, Oliver Platt, Allison Janney, Adam Brody and Alia Shawkat (“Arrested Development’’) also star. ***

to be popular again. In 1999, the Route 66 Corridor Restoration Act, helped to put neon signs of old back in the public eye. Many of the monuments to the past, including the neon signs that dotted Route 66 were restored and reinstalled.

• Artists and historians have not only helped to revive the “retro” looking neon signs in cities and along highways, but “Neon Art” is now considered at art form.

• Not only can you see old neon in the museum in Las Vegas, new and specialized neon art is on display in Los Angeles. In 1981, the Museum of Neon Art (MONA) opened, being the only museum in the world to specialize in neon as an art.

• Whether you prefer your night light in a small electric bulb or out in a city looking at the fancy displays or on a camping trip looking at stars and the moon in the sky, these all provide wonderful lights in the dark of night.

CONTRAILS The long white trails of clouds that are formed when airplanes fly across the sky are called contrails. When the “friendly skies” are busy there are many crisscrossing lines. • The word contrail is short for “condensation trail.” Webster’s Dictionary defines contrails as “streaks of condensed water vapor created in the air by an airplane or rocket at high altitudes.” • Contrails are considered “man-made” clouds since they are formed by airplane exhausts. Water vapor condenses and freezes when air around planes and particles (aerosols) from the exhausts hits the cold temperatures present at high altitudes where airplanes fly. • Contrails are formed above 30,000 feet, which is approximately 5-6 miles (9-10 km) above the earth where the air is extremely cold; less than -40° F (-40° C). • An interesting way to think of contrails is to compare when you exhale warm moist air in cold winter temperatures and “see your breath.” The damp, warm air coming from your lungs adds moisture to the air forming condensation. Usually the condensation from your breath evaporates in less than a second. Condensation from jet airplanes, in the form of contrails, can last quite a while, sometimes even for hours if the conditions are right. • Just like natural clouds, contrails are made of water and ice crystals. Depending on air conditions, contrails can last only a few minutes and be fairly small or they can grow miles long and remain visible for hours. The tiny moisture droplets in contrails freeze instantly and can’t evaporate or melt. They eventually fade away in what is called “sublimation,” when the solid particles turn to gas. It is the same situation as when dry ice ‘dissolves’ back into the air. • The first recorded spotting of a contrail happened over Italy in 1915 by a man named Ettenreich who said, “the condensation of a cumulus stripe from the exhaust gases of an aircraft” was visible for a while in the sky. • Real interest in contrails and more published reports came about during World War II. It was at that time that more aircraft were produced and used in combat that had the ability to reach high altitudes. • Hundreds of aircraft working together over Europe generated so many contrails that formations were hard to keep and targets hard to find. On the contrary, positions could be spotted by the enemy making aircraft vulnerable to enemy attack. • H. Appleman, an American scientist, in 1953, and E. Schmidt, a scientist in Germany, independently studied contrails and developed the theory of contrail formation, called the Schmidt-Appleman Criterion that is still accepted today.
