Right, it doesn't work like that either. The color temperature is not related to the brightness of the bulb, only the color of it. A 3000K bulb can be brighter than a 4000K bulb, they just have different colors. The color is that of a block of carbon heated to the temperature described.

Uhh... it doesn't really work like that. 6000K is not "Twice the AMA guideline". The unit of Kelvin to describe light color comes from the color of a block of carbon heated to the temperature described. The colder the temperature, the 'warmer' the color (a cooler block of carbon is orange, a very hot block of carbon is much 'whiter'). It is a very imperfect description of color, since the colors that one obtains through the heating of a block of carbon sit on a single line in a 2-d color space. But I digress, doubling the temperature does not 'double the color'.

Ok, what immigration status did his brothers and sisters use?

No one here is gleeful. There are rules, and he didn't follow them on multiple occasions. Aside from that, he's being promoted as more than he is: he does not have a Ph.D., as he failed to complete his degree. Despite media reports, he is not a professor, though he may be an instructor at some area schools. And he is not a 'well respected scientist' - he is completely unknown in the scientific community and has precisely zero peer reviewed publications. The fact that he has generally been a good guy for a while doesn't entitle him to jump the line in front of people who have toiled to stay within the bounds of the law and do things properly.

What business does he own?

Sigh. So, without naming names, you're thinking of someone else. Look back through the old articles. The current individual is not a Lawrence merchant.

So, based on current estimates of the population in Lawrence, every man, woman, and child will be responsible for paying $44.80 so that we can have artificial turf. That seems brilliant. The schools don't need anything else? Perhaps books? Pay the teachers more? Anything? This is a lot of money to spend so a few kids can extend their dream of playing professional football for four more years.
