Q:

What is the string worn around the neck that holds keys called?

A:

A lanyard is the string worn around the neck to hold keys. It can also hold USB devices, identification, a whistle, a tool or knife, a pen or anything else that has a loop or clip through which a lanyard can be fastened.

Lanyards are usually made of a cloth that can lay flat against the chest and neck and have a metal fastener at one end. Those that hold keys typically have a thin clip that can be threaded through a key chain or a hole in the key itself, and they may slide over the head or have a fastener that latches behind the neck.

    How do Transitions lenses work?

    A:

    According to Eyeglass Guide, Transitions lenses work because they contain certain photochromic dyes that react when they are exposed to the ultraviolet rays in sunlight, causing the eyeglass lenses to activate, or become darker. When the UV light diminishes, the photochromic dyes again react and cause the tint in the lenses to become lighter. As light levels change during the day, the tint in the lenses continues to adjust.
