Nature’s Points of View

Do you know what specvis and vid have in common?

Well, they are simply Latin roots from which a number of modern English words, related to the vision and the ability to see, come from. As a matter of fact, we have words such as spectacular, vision, video (you get the picture). Another relevant example could be the verb conspicio, also Latin, which stands for catch sight of, therefore we end up having a literate word as conspicuous. But that’s enough for the language matters and origins.

Vision is vital for the survival of species, but it also helps us understand and get to kn

The Clubmaster name may not be familiar to you, but chances are you have seen them countless times on TV or on the silver screen…

In the 1950s and ’60s ‘browline‘ style glasses were the most popular style in the USA.  The thick rim across the top of the frame, pointing out slightly at the edges, drew attention to the wearer’s brow line, hence the name of the style.   The thick top rim is enhanced by the semi rimless, slightly rounded edge.  Legendary activist Malcolm X and Hollywood Heartthrob James Dean were amongst the famous faces pictured in theirs.
