M81 Galaxy

The perfectly picturesque spiral galaxy known as Messier 81, or M81, looks sharp in this new composite from NASA’s Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes and NASA’s Galaxy Evolution Explorer.

M81 is a “grand design” spiral galaxy, which means its elegant arms curl all the way down into its center. It is located about 12 million light-years away in the Ursa Major constellation and is one of the brightest galaxies that can be seen from Earth through telescopes.

Rose’s appealing hue doesn’t signal ‘sweet’

Grape Expectations
April 28, 2011 12:00 AM

A sure sign of spring is when wine shops expand their selection of dry rose for the upcoming summer season. It is a fun time of year for wine drinkers who understand and appreciate this often overlooked category.

For wine lovers who believe all pink wines are sweet, keep reading.

The color of a wine, including pink wine, has nothing to do with the sweetness. The perception that pink wine is sweet began when white Zinfandel, which is pink and sweet, became popular in the United States during the 1970s.

Rose (pronounced row-zay) wines are made from red grapes that […]

Column: Much ado about a little pink polish

For the record, I’ve never painted my sons’ toenails. Not fire engine red, mandarin orange or Pepto Bismol pink.

Usually encased in sneakers, their feet — how can I put this nicely? — tended to emit a unique aroma, and I felt no inclination to expose myself to it unless absolutely necessary. I doubt they would have let me near them with a little brush, anyway.

However, if another mother felt an overwhelming desire to dab a few drops of color on her son’s piggies, I wouldn’t stand in her way. I don’t think nail polish would “make” him gay nor muddy his gender identity — hard-wired attributes, according to most research.

Some people, though, would like you to believe otherwise. […]

Pink fire engines draw attention to cancer fight

Pink fire engines will rumble through Cathedral City on Tuesday with the goal of raising money for local charities in the battle against cancer.

The Pink Heals organization sends its trucks across the United States every year to provide support for women who have suffered any form of cancer and their families.

grapefruit growers in the pink

Saturday, January 16, 2010
The Press-Enterprise

Although citrus production has shrunk dramatically in Riverside County over the last decade, the county continues to lead the state in the planting of grapefruit. But now grapefruit growers who face diminishing demand for their product are organizing for their survival.

While citrus gave way to development in most of western Riverside County, grapefruit groves have endured primarily on remote canyon slopes east of Hemet and stretching into Temecula. It is an area blessed with a microclimate that unlike anywhere in the world except South Africa produces grapefruit that can be harvested when it is summer here and ahead of bigger crops hitting the market from Florida and Texas.

In 1973, Sheila Levrant de Bretteville created “Pink,” a broadside meant to explore the notions of gender as associated with the color pink, for an American Institute of Graphic Arts exhibition about color. This was the only entry about the color pink.

Various women including many in the Feminist Studio Workshop at the Woman’s Building submitted entries exploring their association with the color. De Bretteville arranged the squares of paper to form a “quilt” from which posters were printed and disseminated throughout Los Angeles. She was often called “Pinky” as a result.

In 1993, artist Gioia Fonda created a conceptual piece in the form of a week long holiday called pink week. The intention of pink week is to liberate the color pink from all dogma and simply celebrate the color pink as a color.

Bubblegum Pink is an installation by the artist duo Bigert & Bergstrom which “confronted [the viewer] with three different mental climates” involving large amounts of pink. This mirrors the use of the color in American prisons to calm aggressive prisoners. It features a pink cell and a carpet worn by repetitive pacing.

The Color Pink

So you see the color pink is in effect almost everywhere. It doesn’t hide from controversy; it has switched from a boys color to a girls color. It calms aggression. It signifies cancer awareness, and is a force in music and art. It is sometimes fashionable and at other times it’s out. Whatever you think about the color pink it looks like pink is here to stay.
