why do they call it a green room

Why is the actors resting area called the Green Room? One speculation is that the actor's holding area was once covered in a protective green felt-like material, which was also used on the stage floor to protect the actors' costumes from dirt and dust. I heard this explanation during a backstage theatre tour. The Oxford Companion to the Theatre entry under Green Room says that the first reference is in Thomas Shadwell''s play A True Widow (1678). The relevant line from act four of that play is : Stanmore : "No madam: Selfish, this Evening, in a green Room, behind the Scenes, was before-hand with me. " It also says that the only ''proper'' green room now is at Drury Lane. Green Rooms - where actors met before and after performances to entertain friends - were also known as Scene Rooms (or

 why is the moon not visible tonight

why is the moon not visible tonight

From the Earth's vantage point, the moon puts on a slow, shape-shifting celestial dance over the course of its phases. A number of factors, however, affect its visibility. The moon's phases, position in the sky and weather conditions all contribute to whether or not you can see the familiar satellite. It is usually easy to understand why you can't see the moon on a given night. The moon travels through eight phases over the course of a lunar cycle. Waxing crescent occurs as the moon approaches first quarter. First quarter occurs on the way to becoming full, when half of the moon is visible. Waxing gibbous occurs on the way to a full moon, when more than half of the moon is visible. Full moon occurs when the entire disk of the moon is illuminated. Waning gibbous occurs after full moon.

 why do we cover our private parts

why do we cover our private parts

By age 5, many children start thinking of their bodies as something that needs to be covered up and something that is private, a message often learned from parents who've had a "these are your private parts" talk with their kids. For some children, however, self-consciousness and modesty don't hit until the dawning of puberty. "When my older daughter started to develop at about 11, she started seeking privacy by locking the door when she showered and when she was in the bathroom," said Maureen Wood, a 40-year-old Buena Park mother of two. "I pretty much tried to stay covered up, and I had to crack down on my husband to cover up. I don't feel like we are hiding anything. ...

 why is my fish tank turning green

why is my fish tank turning green

Green water in an aquarium is nearly always caused by an free floating algae in the tank. The two things that can make them reproduce quickly enough to turn the water green are too much light and too much nutrients in the water. The snail explosion may contribute to the problem. While it is true that they will eat the food in the tank that the fish miss they also produce waste after doing so. The uneaten food, fish and snail poop in the tank will all add the nutrients that the algae needs to grow. Also, I am assuming that the algae has nothing to compete with. You rarely see green water in heavily planted tanks because the plants will use the nutrients before the algae does. The easiest way to get rid of the green water is with massive water changes and be sure to vacuum the gravel well.

 why wild animals should not be kept as pets

why wild animals should not be kept as pets

Should Wild Animals Be Kept as Pets? Consider the risks to human health and safety, animal welfare, and the environment SeptemberP25,P2009 The Humane Society of the United States strongly opposes keeping wild animals as pets. This principle applies to both native and nonnative species, whether caught in the wild or bred in captivity. The overwhelming majority of people who obtain these animals are unable to provide the care they require. Despite what animal sellers may say, appropriate care for wild animals requires considerable expertise, specialized facilities, and lifelong dedication to the animals. Their nutritional and social needs are demanding to meet and, in many cases, are unknown. They often grow to be larger, stronger, and more dangerous than owners expect or can manage. Even

This was because their soil levels were extremely low in iodine, and people weren
