Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet ends tragically with deaths that
were caused by Romeo's impulsive thoughtless actions. He kills
Tybalt, and he and Juliet both die unnecessarily. He claims to
already be in love with Rosaline, and then falls in love at
first sight with Juliet.

Additive Color Mixing
The color theory we studied is called subtractive
color where red, yellow, and blue are the primary
colors. We mix those colors to create the other
colors. With additive color we mix different colored
lights. We mix red, green and blue light to produce
the other colors; these are the primary colors.
Combining two of these colors in equal amounts
produces an additive secondary color. Blue light
plus green light produces cyan. Magenta is created
by mixing red and blue in equal amounts, and yellow
is the result of mixing green and red light.
Combining all three primary colored lights in equal
intensities produces white.
- light verses dark
- the intensity of color
- another word for color
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple are all hues.
