In October, we introduced The Reading List. The list focuses on our most read post shares with the largest reach on social media in the past month. These shares aren’t of original content generated by us. They are posts put together through our own research to find relevant color and print articles and websites that we have shared to our audience via social media.
- What Color Are Those Flip Flops? Much like the dress illusion that sent everyone into a tizzy awhile back, these flip flops have the internet wondering if they are gold and white or blue and black. What do you think? (But please don’t end any friendships over this debate as some Twitter users claimed they did.)
- The 2016 SEMA Cruise. Earlier this fall, we attended the SEMA show for the first time. (SEMA stands for Specialty Equipment Market Association of the automobile aftermarket.) This is very close to the largest show in Las Vegas and we weren’t even able to see everything it had to offer during the full two days we spent at the show. Next time, we plan on scheduling a longer stay for the show and we especially want to make sure we see the closing SEMA Cruise. Click here for the video. It’s outstanding; especially if you like cars and trucks – and lots of noise.
- New App Helps the Color Blind Better Distinguish Colors. While only about 1 in 200 women are affected by it, about 1 in 12 men suffer from some sort of color blindness. Most often, they have trouble with identifying reds and greens. Enter the Color Binoculars app that uses the iPhone camera to enhance reds and greens to make them more obvious to the viewer. It’s not a color blindness cure; but it seems to actually help. Color Binoculars is free for iPhone users in the iTunes store.
- One Artist Bought the Rights to the Blackest Black So Another Artist Created the Pinkest Pink. There’s a paint fight stirring. When artist Anish Kapoor bought the sole rights to the blackest black, other artists weren’t all that pleased. One artist named Stuart Semple is selling what is the pinkest pink on his website for $5 a jar. And anyone can buy one – except Anish Kapoor. “Anish can have his black,” ArtsHub quotes Semple as saying in a statement. “But the rest of us will be playing with the rainbow!” Now, now kids. Play nice.
