Some call it creative differences? Whatever. The guy is awesome, if you don’t count that he’s color blind. Lime is green dude! Cherry is red, not purple. The locations are Nashville, Boise, Wichita, and Charlotte. So maybe it refers to the next weekends venue being in the West, I have no idea.

2. You can intimidate some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time. Some who would have been willing to talk about Armstrong could not afford to defend against actual or threatened lawsuits.
At hot sneaker brand Converse, sales rose 10 percent, the brand most profitable quarter ever, but that strength was offset by weakness at Cole Haan and Nike Golf.Beaverton, Oregon based Nike has countered declines in consumer spending mainly by cutting costs, streamlining operations and reducing marketing. It has also slashed 5 percent of its global workforce, or some 1,750 jobs.The company paid a tax rate of 24.7 percent in the quarter, down from 28.5 percent a year earlier, while selling and administrative costs fell 17 percent due to lower marketing and personnel costs. In the first quarter, those costs made up 32.2 percent of revenue from 34.2 percent a year earlier.But unfavorable currency exchange rates and product markdowns to manage inventories hurt gross margins, which fell to 46.2 percent of sales from 47.2 percent a year earlier.Orders for goods to be delivered from now until January a key gauge known as futures orders fell 6 percent.
The brain’s perception can be thrown by the colours of nearby objects, and their reflected light falling on the object in focus in this case the dress.Prof Stephen Westland, chair of colour science and technology at the University of Leeds, said the way people see colours varies hugely.He said: “One in 12 men is colour blind. But what people don’t know is that even if the rest of us are not colour blind we don’t always see colour in the same way.”The surprising thing is that this doesn’t happen more often. People think if they take a photo of something, people will see the same thing but of course that is not true.”Prof Westland said that the “strange” lighting in the picture had probably contributed to the confusion.He said: “If it hadn’t been taken under very strange lighting this probably wouldn’t have happened because if you look at the manufacturer’s picture, it is indisputably blue and black.”Prof Westland explained that the confusion could stem from how we name colours, as there are often blurred lines between how we interpret what colour something is.But he said this is an extreme case as “there is a huge difference between black and gold, blue and white”.He said: “It is possible that people could literally be seeing different colours but it’s impossible to know what is in someone’s head.”Buzzfeed’s online story about the dress has been shared more than 20 million times.Its post about the story also set a record for the website when 670,000 people went on to the site at the same time.Dr Paul Coxon, a physicist at Cambridge University, has tweeted that if the dress was combined with social media users’ love of cats “the universe would explode”.The picture of the dress was taken by Ms MacInnes and posted on social media by Ms McNeill.Ms McNeill asked her followers: “Guys please help me is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking.
