This can include the entertainment industry and films that are in production, traveling art collections, hot new artists, popular travel destinations and other socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from technology, availability of new textures and effects that impact color, and even upcoming sports events that capture worldwide attention.

|RED & GREEN DEVILED EGGS
Really Quick and Easy.
First I start with peeled hard boiled eggs.
You can buy them already boiled and peeled in the grocery store. I tried this but the eggs seem to be a little less rubbery when boiled yourself.
Cut the eggs in halves and put yolks in a bowl
Put the egg halves into the colored water.I did not measure any of the color.
I used food coloring, cold water and a little vinegar in a bowl.
While the eggs are soaking in color, Mix up your filling.
I’m in Texas so these are a few of the base ingredients I use. Again, I didn’t measure anything.You can add whatever you like to the egg yolks to make it taste good. Be careful about making the mixture too wet.
About the time my filling was ready so were the color on the egg whites. I fished them out with a spoon and placed them bottom side up on a few paper towels. After they dried a bit I put them on a plate and filled them.It is best to use an actual deviled egg plate – I could not find mine. After only 20 minutes in the fridge, the places where the red and green sides touched the color transfered and made a dark mark.
Sooo…Thats all there is too it.

Why are Rainbows Colored?
Why are rainbows colored?
How is a rainbow formed?
The mechanics of rainbows have been studied since ancient times. The Greek philosophers were aware of the role of reflection in forming a rainbow, and had some understanding of the role of refraction. In the 13th century, scientists produced theories on rainbow formation, and in the 17th century, Rene Descartes sketched out the conditions required to observe a rainbow.
We see rainbows because of the geometry of raindrops. When the sun shines from behind us into the rain, incident rays of light enter the drop and are refracted inwards. They are reflected from the back surface of the raindrop, and refracted again as they exit the raindrop and return to our eyes. Refraction is responsible for splitting the sunlight into its component colors.
We see Flags flying everywhere and everyday.
Have you ever wondered what the colors of the flags represent?
Black -Black often represents determination, ethnic heritage, and/or defeating one’s enemies.
Blue – Blue often represents freedom, vigilance, perseverance, justice, prosperity, peace, and/or patriotism.
Green – Green can symbolize the Earth, agriculture, fertility, and/or the Muslim religion.
Red – Red often represents courage, revolution, hardiness, blood, and/or valor.
Yellow – Yellow often represents the sun, wealth, and/or justice
What do Flags Represent?
Begin by getting comfortable and doing breathing exercises or whatever you do to clear your mind and calm yourself.
Breathe in and fill yourself with each breath with a specific color of the spectrum, visualizing it as brighter and brighter each time (not lighter; by brighter, I mean more intense)
Fill your mind with these colors as you breathe:
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo (bluish-purple) and violet.
Go through these colors at whatever pace feels comfortable to you.
Play relaxing music to let you mind float into color meditation.
