As the program began, the usual opening rush of clips from around the world accompanied by dramatic music played. A breaking news graphic flew up onscreen and then there was silence. The host, Huw Edwards, sat at his desk, patiently awaiting his cue. But the cue was not coming. Instead, the breaking news graphic came up again... and again, and again. B-roll footage from random segments randomly played and all the while we kept seeing Edwards at his desk, deep in thought. Around the two minute mark, the camera slowly zoomed in on Edwards in a moment that felt like a climax. But no, it snapped back to a wide shot and the idle host continued to contemplate the mysteries of the universe.
The bulk of my favorite kind of movies are slice of life or time travel. So what better than a movie that combines them both? The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is a sweet, irreverent sci-fi anime film directed by Mamoru Hosoda that imagines what would happen if the power to time travel was given to an irresponsible girl. Exactly what you’d expect — she uses it to retake tests, eat her favorite meals and spend a few extra hours at karaoke. But she finds that the one thing she can’t do is stop time from passing, as she is faced with the pangs of first love and adulthood.
Seurat's palette consisted of the usual pigments of his time   such as cobalt blue , emerald green and vermilion . Additionally, Seurat used then new pigment zinc yellow ( zinc chromate ), predominantly for yellow highlights in the sunlit grass in the middle of the painting but also in mixtures with orange and blue pigments. In the century and more since the painting's completion, the zinc yellow has darkened to brown—a color degeneration that was already showing in the painting in Seurat's lifetime.  The discoloration of the originally bright yellow zinc yellow (zinc chromate) to brownish color is due to the chemical reaction of the chromate ions to orange-colored dichromate ions .  In the third stage during 1888-89 Seurat added the colored borders to his composition.
