Did You Know?

Did you know...
The Episcopal Church self-identifies as a middle ground between Catholicism and mainstream Protestantism, using primarily Roman Catholic rituals and Protestant theology.

Did you know that pigeons can tell the difference between a painting by Monet and Picasso?
In a 1995 study published in the Journal of Experimental Analysis of Behavior, researchers reported being able to train pigeons to discriminate between paintings by Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso when shown slides of their works that they had previously never seen before. When the Picasso images were inverted, the little art connoisseurs could still tell it was a Picasso. Maybe that's why they like landing on statues so much.

Did you know that Polar bears have black skin. And actually, their fur isn't white—it's see-through, so it appears white as it reflects light?
The skin of a polar bear is actually black. The black skin allows them to absorb more UV light to stay warm. The hair of the polar bear acts like a fiber optic cable directing the light to the surface of the skin. The clear hair reflects all wavelengths of light giving them a white appearance that blends with their surroundings..
