Scientists discover a new blue

Discovered: The first new blue pigment in 200 years

Scientists discover a new blue, by accident of course, as is often the way with scientific discoveries. The color was discovered by chance by a group of Oregon State University chemists who were heating up chemicals to find new materials for electronics. They named it  YinMn (pronounced “yin-min”) which stands for the elements it’s made of: yitrium iridium, manganese, and oxygen.

 

They continue to search for a new stable, heat reflecting brilliant red, the most elusive color to synthesize.

Science of Social Media for Creatives

Wednesday MAY 17, 2017 6 – 8 pm Mesa Art Center

Social media is just a place where the party is happening and you can pop in, say hi and pop back out again. It doesn’t have to be a hard, daily task. There are ways to totally cheat – let me show you how! But to be successful you do have to be social.

Creatives need social media now more than ever. Your social media plan is your marketing, it is the practice of building relationships with the people who can build relationships for you. Whether your audience, currently is small or large, you can reach consumers via social networks that your work alone may not be able to. There are ways to do this creatively without taxing your time. Want to know more? Join Cyndi Coon of Laboratory5 Inc. for an interactive talk to learn how The Science of Social Media can work for you as a creative.
