CHRISTMAS lights at the 5-Mile round about in Port Moresby are back bringing that festive season very close.

Drivers may thing they know, but it is worth the reminder with the festive season just round the corner. Traffic lights may also be known as stoplights, traffic lamps, traffic signals and signal lights, are signalling devices positioned at road intersections, pedestrian crossings and other locations to control competing flows of traffic.

TRAFFIC lights were first installed in 1868 in London, and today are installed in most cities around the world. Traffic lights alternate the right of way of road users by displaying lights of a standard colour (red, yellow/amber, and green), using a universal colour code (and a precise sequence to enable comprehension by those who are colour blind).

THE organs of smell are confined to a small area in the roof of the nasal cavity. Olfactory cells are stimulated when certain molecules reach them, and nerve fibers extend from these receptor cells to the olfactory bulb in the human brain. Smell is one of our most subtle senses, amplifying the sense of taste and detecting tens of thousands of distinct scents. Odour information is easily stored in long-term memory and has strong connections to emotional memory.

TO those who love their red wine … the Three Glorious Days is a French wine festival that occurs on the third weekend of November in Côte ‘Or Department, Burgundy, in eastern France. On the first day, at the Château of Clos Vougeot, the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin receive their new members, followed by a pig dinner during which hundreds of bottles of wine are uncorked. The second day takes place at Beaune, where a wine auction is held at the Hospice de Beaune. On the final day in Meursault, everyone who has taken part in the wine harvest is invited to a huge banquet with folk dancing and merrymaking.

QUOTE of the day: WE must have ideals and try to live up to them, even if we never quite succeed. Life would be a sorry business without them. With them it’s grand and great. – Lucy Maud Montgomery
