The Blue House ~ Cheong Wa Dae (“pavilion of blue tiles”)
Cheong Wa Dae (“pavilion of blue tiles”) is the executive office and official residence of the South Korean head of state located in Seoul. On Mt Inwan stands the national shaman shrine, Guksadang. The main feature is an old Spirit Tree, spanning the three worlds, in front of which were offerings of alcohol. It is decorated in cloth strips of symbolic colours, the dominant being blue to signify the source of the cosmic order. It is why the Korean president occupies a Blue House rather than a White House.

Study: Blue light from screens can steadily blind us
“We are being exposed to blue light continuously, and the eye’s cornea and lens cannot block or reflect it… Photoreceptor cells do not regenerate in the eye. When they’re dead, they’re dead for good.”

The Bhandara Festival
In India, Somvati Amavasya is an event that typically happens two or three times every year. It refers to the appearance of a new moon on a Monday, and on every Somvati Amavasya, over 700,000 devotees travel from different corners of India’s Maharashtra state to the small village of Jejuri for the Bhandara Festival, a holy day dedicated to Lord Khandoba, who is believed to be a manifestation of Lord Shiva. In the day-long celebration, turmeric powder is flung around, covering the Khandoba Temple and legions of devotees in rich hues of yellow. The turmeric represents gold, which symbolizes the wealth and riches that they hope Lord Khandoba bestows them with.

A new study published in Canine Genetics and Epidemiology analyzed the records of 33,000 Labrador Retrievers in the UK and found that, accounting for lifestyle variables, the ones with brown coats had significantly more health problems than their yellow and black counterparts. Specifically, the chocolate labs were four times more likely to develop an ear infection or a skin disease called pyo-traumatic dermatitis—an itchy, painful condition also known as a “hot spot.” This means that overall, chocolate labs tend to live 1.2 year less than the average golden retriever lifespan of 12.1 years.
