How knowledgeable are you about Flashlights?

Several flashlights existed before LED flashlight came to be. But how knowledgeable are you about them? This article will shed more light on the flashlight history.

LED Flashlight History

Back in the day, humans where used to having fire at night outside like carrying a lantern with candle in it or oil lamp. You can just imagine how that could impede you in so many ways. But with the coming of flashlights, humans start to tilt towards this new technology and let go of fire and lantern.

Before the coming of Cree XM-L T6 LED Flashlight,there existed three flashlights that made phenomena impact in human history—halogen flashlight, ordinary flashlight and xenon lamp flashlight—and you can also include divide tungsten and xenon HID.

Halogen flashlight has taken the back seat with the coming of LED, and is now very few in the market.

Some of the features that might interest you are the use of incandescent bulbs, provision of low luminous efficiency, easy to burn, and the fact that it is powered by alkaline batteries that has large capacity. The only down side is the short battery life.

To my surprise, a rainbow suddenly appeared to me as if to say that the Creator will take care of his animals.Unknown-5


So what if summer is almost over. Get ready for fall. If it’s September, you know that it’s that time of year for The Vancouver Fringe Festival, Vancouver Internationl Film Festival and lots of other events. Here’s a few that I recommend.

Vancouver Fringe Festival

Whether you are looking for a one-man or one-woman show or larger theatrical productions, don’t miss out on the Fringe festival. http://www.vancouverfringe.com. Take your date, yourself, parents, or get together with some friends to laugh it up. There are some serious shows, and some more lighthearted.  The shows go on from Sept 10 to Sept. 20. Be warned! You’ll see some weird and wonderful productions. Take for example a show titled, “Searching For Dick.” Written by Jim and Tara Travis,  spectators will get a taste of the spirit world and eat delicious brownies. (recipe courtesy of the people from the departed).

Vancouver International Film Festival 

If you are looking for glamour, intelligent and thought-provoking films, be sure to get a pass or check out some great films at this year’s festival. Tickets are on sale now at http://www.viff.org. If you want to go to the opening receptions or attend special events, it’s worth it to check out the website and browse films by series. The excitement starts from Sept 24 to Oct. 8. Filmmakers like myself often like to go the workshops to get tips on the latest social media strategies or hear from the writers and producers from Hollywood North or South.

Party at Queen Elizabeth Park

Come and celebrate Queen Elizabeth Park’s 75 birthday. I love parties. September 13, noon to 7 pm.

There’s lots of fun, including:

 A free concert, a licensed area, free pitch and putt, free admission at the Bloedel Conservatory, $5.00 zipline rides, food trucks, family fun, and much more!

Bard On The Beach

There’s still time to catch shows by The Bard or William Shakespeare. The season ends September 26.  Worth checking out is a show called, “Shakespeare’s Rebel.” Set in 1599, during a time of social and military upheaval, we are introduced to a general, sent by Queen Elizabeth, to crash the rebels in Ireland. It’s got love, fighting, social tensions and obligations, complications thrown in by Shakespeare himself, and so much more. To check out this show and others, go to : http://bardonthebeach.org/2015/shakespeares-rebel-play-synopsis.
