The Colored Junior College was established to provide an opportunity for African-Americans to receive college training. The Junior College progressed so fast that by 1931, it became a member of the Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and was approved by the Southern Association of Colleges. In the summer of 1934, the Houston School Board changed the junior college to a four-year college and the name to Houston College for Negroes. When the university opened its doors in September 1947, it had 2,300 students, two schools, one division and one college - the Law School, the Pharmacy School, the Vocational Division, and the College of Arts and Sciences. Responding to the changing times, in 1973, the 63rd Legislature designated Texas Southern University as a special purpose institution for urban programming. As a result, four more academic units were added - the College of Education, the School of Public Affairs, the School of Communications and the Weekend College.
Yet another accomplishment has been achieved at Chino Hills High School that only adds to the prosperity and Husky spirit of this illustrious and triumphant school. This year, Color Guard participated in and won a variety of championships including the WGI Circuit-Western Open Class Championships, West Coast Winter Circuit-Open Class Championships with a first place medal, the WGASC Circuit with a silver medal, and the WGI Open World Class Championships in Dayton, Ohio which they took 16th place in out of the world. When interviewing Kaitlyn Parsons (Captain), Mallory Williams, Ashley Kearns, Hunter Adams, and Nina Penzo (Captain) about this prodigious attainment, they each stated that it has been an unforgettable journey that has been both an individual and a team effort. Members of Color guard are split into two teams,
Auditioning for color guard my freshman year is without a doubt the best decision I’ve made throughout my high school career. My initial expectations were to simply have fun participating in a newly discovered hobby, but what came was so much more. Color guard has affected me in numerous ways, from what I’ve learned to how I conduct myself.
Who knew that I would fall in love with Color guard and Winter guard. “Color guard uses various equipment, such as flags, rifles, and sabres, along with dance, to express dynamic passages in the music accompanying the marching band show or winterguard show. Usually marching bands and color guards perform during football games at halftime, out of tradition.” The sport of the arts has impacted my life in many ways such as: letting me use a God given talent to spread his word, help to express my feelings, and to meet new people and make a life long relationships.
Many people have a concept of what color guard is about. People who dance at football games spinning flags, sabers, and rifles alongside with the marching band. But for me, color guard is much more than just
“Stay in your toaster!” With every move, the flag must stay right in front of our body and right behind our backs. This one simple rule is embedded in every guard girl’s mind. Color guard requires to do various actions at once. For instance, we must remember the sequence of the choreography, march in step, find the right drill spot, and smile. One simple mistake with a flag allows all eyes on you. As the guard girls performs with flags, there’s three different types of girls on the field. There is the hard worker, the slacker, and the hardworker and the slacker combined.
A male with the mutation on their X-chromosome will show symptoms of colorblindness. The man’s daughter will then be a carrier or have the possibility of being colorblind if her mother is also a carrier. This is all because of the sex-linked aspect of colorblindness, which is why only 1% of women are affected (Bennett, 2009). As well, most people with a form of colorblindness have difficult in certain professions that heavily rely on sight. Such as pilots, or network cabling, which rely on seeing the different colors in order to perform the job. Driving can also be a problem if an individual can’t see the difference between red and green. However, due to the positioning of traffic lights, those who are affected remember positioning of the lights to tell when to stop or
Some of the early symptoms of this color blindness includes having troubles in seeing colors under the normal light and being unable to differentiate between shades of the same colors more specifically between red and green or yellow and blue.
John Dalton has been known to have discovered his own colour blindness in the year of 1794, seeing pink as blue and scarlet as green. The vitreous humor is known as a gel that can fill a space that is in-between the lens and retina of the eyeball, it’s also known as vitreous body. There are around 1 in 12 man and 1 out of 200 women that colour blindness affects in their everyday life, there are also different types of colour blindness that affects many such as Deuteranomaly or Protanomaly are also known as red-green where they find it difficult to see reds, greens, browns and oranges. Monochromatic which is seeing no colour at all. In a person’s eye there are three colours that make up all the colours that show in someone that is colour blind they have a faulty hue of colour and
“Since we can’t not change reality, let us change the eyes that see reality” -Nikos Kazantzakis. Mutation occurs when a DNA gene is damaged or changed in a way that changes the genetic message carried by that gene. Not being able to see the correct color means you are color blind. Being colorblind is a mutation that can happen to a human. Being color blind does not harm the human body. Being colorblind is caused by abnormal photopigments. Cells shaped like a cone, called cone cells, are located in the retina and detect color. In order for a human eye to make photopigments multiple genes are required. If there are to be any defects in the genes that is when color blindness may occur. Color blindness can also occur if there is any physical or
Color. How can one describe color? Many relate color to real-life experiences, but you can hardly describe color to a blind person. The sea of colors must be experienced first hand. Color is all around us. It is on nature, houses, material things, everywhere. The famous rainbow showing itself after a gloomy, rainy day. I remember experiencing, feeling, seeing all these colors during my younger days. You don’t learn to appreciate color until it is gone. Color is a part of life and happiness. I was 76 when I first started losing my vision. I may be blind, but I haven’t lost my memory yet. I remember so clearly how life was like when I could see. It was full of diversity and sunshine. I especially remember blue, my favorite color.
Achromatopsia, also known as color blindness or daltonism, is a congenital deficiency in the perception of colors. A typical individual has three types of cone cells within each eye which detect red, green or blue light. Therefore, when an individual sees color the cones cells are stimulated and depending on the ratio of the three shades allows you to see color. However, for a person who suffers with Achromatopsia the cones do not function to their fullest extent and because of this people lack the ability to see color.
Couple of people understand that color affects our mood, our appetite, even how good we could concentrate or relax inside a space. Literally, color can do or die an area. Need I additionally point out that 10 % males will also be color blind?
Fortunately, researchers are working to learn more about color blindness, and, without a doubt, they have made progress. Researchers have cured color blindness in monkeys using gene therapy. They were able to inject certain photopigment genes into the retina of the adult monkeys giving them the ability to see the specific colors. This discovery gives hope to the idea of curing people who have been color blind since birth
Approximately thirty-two million Americans suffer from some degree of color blindness. For these people, simple tasks may become complicated; such as matching an outfit or telling the difference of the signals at a traffic light. Many people do not even know that they have some kind of color blindness. The technical term is "color-vision deficiency" because "colorblindness" is usually confused with seeing the world in black and white. However, there are various forms of color vision deficiency that keep people from seeing all of the colors that normal eyes may see. In an article titled "Probing Question: What is colorblindness?" on the Penn State website, psychology professor Rick Gilmore explains how and why certain individuals are kept from seeing the world in full color. He says that there are three types of cones in the retina that give us the ability to see color. Each cone is sensitive to a specific light; red, green, and blue. When one or more of the cones is not there or has received some sort of damage, some form of color vision deficiency will
