Strange Administrative Customs – Part 1

Strange Administrative customs

In India various types of offences have been punished in different ways from time to time, depending on their nature and intensity. It was a firm belief of India legists that if punishment is not meted out, it leads to political chaos and internal disorder.

In early days even for trivial offences deterrent or barbarous penalties were prescribed. If any woman employed in the state-weaving establishment, after receiving her wages, failed to produce the work assigned to her, her fingers were to be cut off. Megasthenes observed that if astrologers gave false or incorrect forecasts they were condemned to permanent silence.

Black Lights – How they grow

Black lights

One of the many things which seem to fade away is when a person enters adulthood alongside cotton candy and candy necklaces would have to be black lights. This kind of lighting is usually only significant for a few school dances in junior high, but how they work is interesting for anyone who thinks learning is a lifetime pursuit.

Black light produces ultraviolet light which we cannot see. Sometimes we can see a glowing purple which makes perfect sense since it is just a step below on the light spectrum. The black lights are available in two bulb types – one like the traditional incandescent bulb and another like a CFL. The tubular shaped bulb is like a CFL light because it is filled with an inert gas and a bit of mercury, but the phosphor coating is different from a traditional CFL in that the one used in a black light soaks up dangerous waves and only emits ultraviolet light to shine.
