Welcome to my site. My name is Ellis Potter. I am going to use this site to talk about the benefits of obtaining signs for your business. When I started my first company, I mainly relied on word-of-mouth advertising to obtain new customers. As a result, I did not value the use of signs for advertising. Instead, I focused on providing excellent customer satisfaction with every transaction. Eventually, I learned that signs would propel my company to new heights. I invested in signs and saw my customer rate triple in a short amount of time. I would like to use this site to talk about all of the different types of signs on the market today. Please follow along to learn more.
As a child, did you ever stick glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling of our childhood bedroom so you could stare up at that eerie green glow and pretend you were looking up at the night sky? Or do you fixate on those bright photoluminescent exit signs that light up at night when everything else is dark? That's because our eyes are naturally drawn to light, particularly photoluminescent light. Photoluminescent light is all thanks to phosphorus, a chemical that absorbs energy from light and re-emits it as a glowing light visible to the human eye. There are many manmade sources of photoluminescence, like glow-in-the-dark stars and photoluminescent exit signs, but did you know there are objects in nature that have natural luminescence? Here are four.
One of the most famous examples of luminescence in nature is bioluminescent jellyfish, like the mauve stinger, or pelagia noctiluca. This vibrant jellyfish lives in warm and temperate waters and has a natural bioluminescence that flashes when agitated by turbulent waters. It's a stunning example of luminescence occurring naturally in ocean life.
There is another creature from the sea that also has a handy bioluminescent body part that helps it find prey. The anglerfish lives in the deepest parts of the ocean and it has a rod that dangles from the top of its head that lights up and attracts prey. This rod is actually a part of the female anglerfish's dorsal spine and it has a bioluminescent tip.
There is a species of mushroom that grows in the dark Brazilian rainforests called the Mycena luxaterna. This fabulous fungi emits a bright green glow that scientists believe evolved to attract nocturnal animals to help disperse the fungi's spores further afield. The end result of this ploy was more glowing mushrooms.
Glowing Civil War Soldiers
Perhaps you've heard the amazing accounts of wounded Civil Wars soldiers that could glow in the dark. It sounds like a fantasy but it's actually true! During the Battle of Shiloh in 1862, some soldiers noticed a faint blue glow emanating from their wounds. This glow was caused by a soil bacterium called Photorhabdus luminescens, also dubbed Angel's Glow because the soldiers who had the glow tended to heal faster from their injuries. Angel's Glow is actually a bioluminescent bacterium that gives off a faint blue light. Because the bacterium lives in nematodes that emit a chemical that kills microorganisms, it actually assisted in removing more harmful microorganisms from the soldiers' wounds, helping them heal faster.Share
