Refraction occurs when a ray of light passes from one transparent medium (air, let’s say) to a second transparent medium (water). When this happens, light changes speed and the light ray bends, either toward or away from what we call the normal line, an imaginary straight line that runs perpendicular to the surface of the object. The amount of bending, or angle of refraction, of the light wave depends on how much the material slows down the light.

It wasn’t like I didn’t already know. My birthday had come and gone with the absence of his card, addressed as he always had, “to my one and only.” Thanksgiving followed, the first attempt in my adult life to cook a turkey and he wasn’t there to carve it. Christmas meant one less gift to buy.

Sony’s success in the past has relied a great deal upon the power of the Sony and PlayStation brands in attracting new consumers as well as retaining existing customers. In turn, Sony repaid customer faith by supporting their platforms with many great experiences. But unfortunately, the company is now getting a reputation for arrogance that will be difficult to shake..

But there is hope. As we enter 2011, the script for a futuristic agriculture, which brings back the smile on the face of farmers, without leaving any scar on the environment, is being rewritten. I am drawing the attention of political as well as the business leadership to a sustainable pathway that does not need the involvement of giant multinationals.

WHO (that’s the World Health Organization) recommends the procedure as a way of reducing HIV infections. A current goal is to hit 80 percent coverage among men in 14 sub Saharan countries, which could potentially prevent 3.4 million HIV infections. A report issued by WHO this year cites a “remarkable expansion” to nearly 9.1 million VCCMs in these “priority countries.”.
