No, that's the kid on the Andy Griffith show.
According to The Canadian Encyclopedia, wind chill was created at Little America, Antarctica in 1939. It was before the second world war when "Admiral Richard Byrd, (Paul) Siple and his partner Charles Passel conducted the experiments". They "developed a formula for relating heat loss to wind speed and air temperature, expressed in units of atmospheric cooling. Later, the formula was modified to allow computation of a wind chill equivalent temperature.
Here in the Mohave Desert, we experience a kind of "reverse" experience with this. The air contains so little moisture that, for much of the year, the "wind-chill" effect works backwards, often beneficially. For example, in the summer, when the temperature may be 100 degrees (F) and the Relative Humidity 10%, the "Heat Index" s actually less than the prevailing temperature, perhaps 92 degrees. Thus, it feels "cooler" than 100 degrees.
In winter, when the actual concept comes into play, given an actual temperature of, say, 50 degrees, the "wind-chill" factor, here often called "real-feel", may be 55 degrees or more, depending on how low the humidity is. Humidity here is very often below 5%, in any season, and Dew Points are correspondingly very low, except during "Monsoon Season", in the Summer, when Dew Points may climb higher, actually, than those typically presented in the arid areas like the Midwest.
According to Christmas Tree Growers Association of Canada, 28,315 hectares (69,968acres) were dedicated to Christmas tree production in 2011. They also say that just one acre produced enough oxygen for 18 people.
Great Moments in Christmas Tree History
The use of evergreen trees to celebrate the winter season occurred before the birth of Christ.
The first decorated Christmas tree was in Riga, Latvia in 1510.
The first printed reference to Christmas trees appeared in Germany in 1531.
The first artificial Christmas trees were developed in Germany during the 19th century, though earlier examples exist. These "trees" were made using goose feathers that were dyed green. The German feather trees were one response by Germans to continued deforestation in Germany.
I haven't done the research on this but I believe North Carolina is among the top Christmas Tree growing states.
According The University of Illinois's Department of Physics, 4°C turns out to be the temperature at which liquid water has the highest density."
One of the greatest inventions of all time is the ............ aglet.........
Without it, we would have trouble.....
The aglet is an important part of our footwear.
How many official languages does Switzerland have ???
They have four official languages, German, French, Italian, and Rumantsch....
I'm out of my league here.
You & I both! I grew up learning English, while listening to a smattering of Czech, Polish, Italian, Lithuanian, and some Russian, but learning little of any but English. Then, told by advisors I needed a "foreign language" in high school, I took German. You should have heard the hoots from my grandparents! They on both sides despised the Germans!
An indri has a rudimentary tale.
The word ..... FACETIOUS ...... is the only word in English that has all of the vowels (A E I O U) in its proper order...
A surprising number of folks, majority in my experience, do not know the real definiotion of "facetious", imagining it to mean anything from "ridiculous" to "enigmatic".
