American Scene: LEDs mean full rainbow for Empire State Building
Question of the Day
NEW YORK — The Empire State Building will replace its tower lights with a computer-driven LED system that allows for nearly endless color combinations.
The iconic skyscraper’s owner is partnering with Massachusetts-based Philips Color Kinetics to install the new light fixtures.
The top of the building is bathed in an ever-changing array of colors in honor of holidays and community organizations and for numerous other occasions.
The new system includes a palette of more than 16 million colors. The present system has 10.
Currently, it takes a team several hours to change the colors. With LED lights, the color changes to the building’s facade and mast can be made instantly.
Building owner Anthony Malkin says the energy-efficient technology will be installed by September.
Police chief: Officer kicked teen suspect
HOUSTON — Houston's police chief believes an ex-officer accused in the 2010 videotaped beating of a 15-year-old burglary suspect kicked and stomped on the boy.
Mr. Blomberg is charged with misdemeanor official oppression in the beating and faces up to a year in jail if convicted. He was one of four officers fired and indicted after the incident.
Security video from March 2010 appears to show several officers hitting Chad Holley during his arrest. He was subsequently convicted in juvenile court of burglary and put on probation.
Chief McClelland was the last witness for the prosecution.
Mr. Blomberg’s defense began with testimony from a police sergeant who investigated the burglary
