UV (Blacklight) Wavelengths

What do you think of when you hear the word Blacklight? Fluorescent markers that glow? Wild 80’s posters that glow? Invisible Ink?

What do you think of when you hear the letters UV? Sunburn?

All of the answers are right. There are way more uses than people realize of UV. And dangers.

In the spectrum of light, UV or UltraViolet is a spectrum beyond the normal scope of what the human eye can see (Just as Infra-Red is).

When you are out on the beach, it is the UV rays of the sun that burn your skin and produce Sunburn. There is a myth is you cannot get burned on a cloudy day.

Five Stages of Grief

In 1969, psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross introduced what became known as the “five stages of grief.” These stages of grief were based on her studies of the feelings of patients facing terminal illness, but many people have generalized them to other types of negative life changes and losses, such as the death of a loved one or a break-up.

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross noted that the stages are not meant to be a complete list of all possible emotions that could be felt, and they can occur in any order. Her hypothesis holds that not everyone who experiences a life-threatening or life-altering event feels all five of the responses, due to reactions of personal losses differing between people.

5 Stages

  1. Denial and Isolation: “This can’t be happening to me.”
  2. Anger: “Why is this happening? Who is to blame?”
  3. Bargaining: “Make this not happen, and in return I will ____.”
  4. Depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.”
  5. Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what happened.”

Again, these are just some notes. What is your comment on these?
