  Candela - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The candela (symbol: cd) is the SI base unit of luminous intensity (that is, power emitted by a light source in a particular direction, with wavelengths weighted by the luminosity function, a standardized model of the sensitivity of the human eye).
The candela was based on an older unit, the candlepower, which was referenced to the luminous intensity of a "standard candle" of known composition.
Although the candela is now defined partly in terms of the watt, which is a derived SI unit of power, the candela remains a base unit of the SI system [1].

 Candela
All the units for measuring and defining light are based on the candela, which is the unit defining the luminous intensity from a small source, in a particular direction.
The candela is therefore no longer strictly necessary as a fundamental unit, because it is now defined in terms of a fundamental SI unit.
The candela is a unit of intensity: a light source can be emitting with an intensity of one candela in all directions, or one candela in just a narrow beam.

 Spectra Cine Candela IIA - footcandles, lux, candelas, light measurement
The Spectra Candela II and II-A meters measure illuminance levels in footcandles or lux and instantly calculates the contrast ratio of your particular lighting situation.
Candelas are equal to the square of the distance multiplied by the number of footcandles.
The conversion of footcandles and lux to candelas is most accurately achieved in the context of a single point source of light measured in the dark.

 Candela's Options Zap Profits [Fool.com: Motley Fool Take] October 5, 2005
There's no evidence that Candela was purposefully "inappropriately" recording sales, but the company prefaced its explanation for the delay with a lot of boilerplate about how no control procedure can catch every instance of fraud.
In any event, Candela did catch the error, changes were made, and the numbers released were not materially affected.
If Candela were eliminating its stock option program in favor of issuing restricted stock, or simply allowing management to buy shares at market prices like everyone else, the accelerated vesting plan might be a good idea.
