An Iraqi teen with autism expresses himself through color. He draws in black since his mother got coronavirus

Nahla al-Nadawi's voice is filled with love as she gently asks her son why the flower he drew is black. © Aqeel Najm/CNN The color black has crept back into Ussayid's drawings. Nahla believes that her son has carried that darkness with him since his father's death. It pains her to have to ask that question. Ussayid, 19, has autism and struggles to verbally express his thoughts, fears, and pain. He does so through colors. "We worked for years to get him away from the black of death," she explains. "But this was his expression of his fear that I would die or that my husband who he considers as a father figure would die."Nahla and her husband Aqil both contracted the coronavirus within days of each other. To get Covid-19 in Iraq means to assume responsibility for yourself, sh...

True Color Of The General Lee Discovered After All These Years

It's orange, but of course, it's not that simple. The holy trinity of famous Hollywood cars is somewhat debatable. There are a handful of vehicles that quality, but the 1969 Dodge Charger known as the General Lee is virtually guaranteed a spot in the top three. Many would argue the orange muscle car is the most iconic Hollywood machine of them all, having dodged the law while jumping every obstacle in Georgia during its seven-season run on The Dukes of Hazzard. But is the General actually orange? © AutoClassics General Lee Big Block The answer is obviously yes, but not all oranges are created equal. For decades there's been debate as to the car's specific shade of orange. Being a Dodge product, many people assumed the car wore a bright coat of Hemi Orange. Folks deep in the Gen...

What colors do I use to paint a Black Bear?

Fortunately, if you're reading this, I will share the correct answer and save you a few million hours! If you don't know me you're probably saying, "This guy is pretty pompous!"

Margaret Button: A cheesy, easy breakfast bake? No problem. Picking out paint … that’s another story | Food

For at least the past three years, I have been trying to pick a paint color for my living room and kitchen. I never liked the color we originally chose (well, actually my husband chose), when rebuilding our home after a house fire 11 years ago. It’s a café au lait color and, since we were picking out the floor tiles and the countertops, they all looked great together. However, now that I want to repaint the rooms another color, finding a color that will complement the gray, beige-y floor and countertops, a mixture of golden tans, browns and black, is more daunting than I ever imagined.Walking into the paint department of a store is a nightmare. For indecisive people like me, there should be a color palette of 10 or fewer colors, but no, walk into a paint de...

Here’s Exactly How To Use Farrow & Ball’s 2021 Trending Paint Colors

When Farrow & Ball released its color trend predictions for 2021 last week, the British brand did the hard work—aka the palette creation—for us, grouping the hues into four chic combinations that take the guesswork out of what actually goes together. “The breadth of our palettes allows people not to be too constrained by a singular color, [especially] as we reconsider our new way of living,” says Patrick O’Donnell, an international brand ambassador for the company. “Multiple areas of the home have gained increased importance, so we wanted to offer a versatile selection that allows for different ambiences, from the home office to calm spaces that take us away from work.” In the spirit of spending more time living and working indoors, we asked O’Donnell exactly where...

Stunt Performers Call On SAG-AFTRA To End “Paint-Downs” And “Wigging”

Dozens of stunt performers have signed a letter sent today to the leadership of SAG-AFTRA calling for an end to “wigging” – the age-old practice of putting wigs and dresses on stuntmen so they can double for actresses – and “paint-downs,” in which dark make-up is applied to white stunt performers so that they can double for actors of color. “In the stunt industry, diversity and inclusion have long been overlooked and discouraged, and it’s long past time for these practices to end,” said stuntwoman Crystal Santos, who spearheaded the campaign.In response to the letter, SAG-AFTRA said that it “stands in solidarity with performers whose opportunities to work in stunt roles have been denied or limited because of bias against women, minorities and performers with disabilities.

Here’s one way to spot a First Edition

Ford's sold-out Bronco First Edition is limited to 7,000 units nationwide. Telling it apart from one of the other variants will be relatively easy, because reservation holders will have the opportunity to order a trim-specific color. Posting on Twitter, the Blue Oval announced the First Edition will be the only Bronco offered in Lightning Blue. It's a darker shade of blue that almost matches the color of the firm's logo, and we've already seen it on the F-150 Raptor, the Shelby Mustang GT350, and the Ranger, among other models. The computer-generated image published by Ford (shown above) shows how the color looks on the Bronco; in this configuration, it's complemented by black on the grille, on the bumpers, on the mirrors, on the fender flares, and on the wheels.

Sept. Tech Reviews: Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition, Foundry Flix 6.3 & Silhouette Paint for Nuke

Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition Of all of the newer laptop/mobile workstations that have recently come out with the latest RTX card, the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition is the newest and visually the sexiest, in my opinion. The new model has an anodized finish on top of a body milled from a block of aluminum (which I found a little sharp on the edge) and an illuminated color keyboard which could be just glitzy glamor, but I found it practical to map specific colors to keys, similar to the Avid keyboards of long ago (I’m sure they are still around). But to move beyond the slick exterior: The first asset is the 4K touch display that extends to nearly the edge with a minimal bezel, with a 100% DCi-P3 color gamut — which is the standard that the American film industry has set for movie projectors....
