Peach (color)

Peach is a color, named for the pale color of the interior flesh of the peach fruit. This name may be substituted for "peachy." Like the color apricot, the color peach is paler than most actual peach fruits and seems to have been formulated to create a pastel palette of colors for interior design. The color peach approximates the color of the interior flesh of that variety of peaches known as white peaches; the first recorded use of peach as a color name in English was in 1588. The etymology of the color peach: the word comes from the Middle English peche, derived from Middle French, in turn derived from Latin persica, i.e. the fruit from Persia. In actuality, the ultimate origin of the peach fruit was from China. Displayed at right is the web color peach puff. Displayed at right is the deep tone of peach called peach in Crayola crayons. Prior to 1962, it was known as flesh, but the name was changed to peach, ostensibly in recognition of the Civil Rights Movement. FungiThe peach-colored fly agaric is a peach-colored mushroom.

Interior Design In Art Deco interior design of the 1920s and 1930s, peach-colored mirrors were seen installed in exclusive luxury homes, in nightclubs and hotels catering to the upper classes. Religion The color peach represents immortality in Chinese culture because The Peach Tree of Immortality, long thought to be on a mountainside somewhere in the Tian Shan in western China, which blooms only once every 3,000 years, is a key concept in the mythology of the Taoist religion. Sexuality In the bandana code of the gay leather subculture, wearing a peach bandana means that one is a "bear" or a "cub" looking for a bear. List of colors

Learned Hand

Billings Learned Hand was an American judge and judicial philosopher. He served on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Hand has been quoted more by legal scholars and by the Supreme Court of the United States than any other lower-court judge. Born and raised in Albany, New York, Hand majored in philosophy at Harvard College and graduated with honors from Harvard Law School. After a short career as a lawyer in Albany and New York City, he was appointed at the age of 37 as a Federal District Judge in Manhattan in 1909; the profession suited his detached and open-minded temperament, his decisions soon won him a reputation for craftsmanship and authority. Between 1909 and 1914, under the influence of Herbert Croly's social theories, Hand supported New Nationalism, he ran unsuccessfully as the Progressive Party's candidate for Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals in 1913, but withdrew from active politics shortly afterwards.

In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge promoted Hand to the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which he went on to lead as the Senior Circuit Judge from 1939 until his semi-retirement in 1951. Scholars have recognized the Second Circuit under Hand as one of the finest appeals courts in the country's history. Friends and admirers lobbied for Hand's promotion to the Supreme Court, but circumstances and his political past conspired against his appointment. Hand possessed a gift for the English language, his writings are admired as legal literature, he rose to fame outside the legal profession in 1944 during World War II after giving a short address in Central Park that struck a popular chord in its appeal for tolerance. During a period when a hysterical fear of subversion divided the nation, Hand was viewed as a liberal defender of civil liberties. A collection of Hand's papers and addresses, published in 1952 as The Spirit of Liberty, sold well and won him new admirers. After he criticized the civil-rights activism of the 1950s Warren Court, Hand retained his popularity.

Hand is remembered as a pioneer of modern approaches to statutory interpretation. His decisions in specialist fields, such as patents, admiralty law, antitrust law, set lasting standards for craftsmanship and clarity. On constitutional matters, he was both a political progressive and an advocate of judicial restraint, he believed in the protection of free speech and in bold legislation to address social and economic problems. He argued, that the United States Constitution does not empower courts to overrule the legislation of elected bodies, except in extreme circumstances. Instead, he advocated the "combination of toleration and imagination that to me is the epitome of all good government". Billings Learned Hand was born on January 27, 1872, in Albany, New York, the second and last child of Samuel Hand and Lydia Hand, his mother's family traditionally used surnames as given names. The Hands were a prominent family with a tradition of activism in the Democratic Party. Hand grew up in comfortable circumstances.

The family had an "almost hereditary" attachment to the legal profession and has been described as "the most distinguished legal family in northern New York". Samuel Hand was an appellate lawyer, who had risen through the ranks of an Albany-based law firm in the 1860s and, by age 32, was the firm's leading lawyer. In 1878, he became the leader of the appellate bar and argued cases before the New York Court of Appeals in "greater number and importance than those argued by any other lawyer in New York during the same period". Samuel Hand was a intimidating figure to his son. Samuel Hand died from cancer when Learned was 14. Learned's mother thereafter promoted an idealized memory of her husband's professional success, intellectual abilities, parental perfection, placing considerable pressure on her son. Lydia Hand was an involved and protective mother, influenced by a Calvinist aunt as a child. Learned Hand came to understand the influences of his parents as formative. After his father's death, he looked to religion to help him cope, writing to his cousin Augustus Noble Hand: "If you could imagine one half the comfort my religion has given to me in this terrible loss, you would see that Christ never forsakes those who cling to him."

The depth of Hand's early religious convictions was in sharp contrast to his agnosticism. Hand was beset by anxieties and self-doubt including night terrors as a child, he admitted he was "very undecided, always have been—a insecure person fearful. After his father's death, he grew up surrounded by doting women—his mother, his aunt, his sister Lydia, eight years his elder. Hand struggled with his name during his childhood and adulthood, worried that "Billings" and "Learned" were not sufficiently masculine. While working as a lawyer in 1899, he ceased using the name "Billings"—calling it "pompous"—and took on the nickname "B". Hand spent two years at a small primary school before transferring at the age of seven to The Albany Academy, which he attended for the next 10 years, he never enjoyed the Academy's uninspired teaching or its narrow curriculum, which focused on Ancient Greek and Latin, with few courses in English, science, or modern languages. He considered himself an outsider enjoying recesses or the school's mili
