  Chill out music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chill out (sometimes chillout), a term derived from a slang injunction to relax, emerged in the early and mid-1990s as a catch-all term for various styles of relatively mellow, slow-tempo music made by contemporary producers in the electronic music scene.
A number of compilations with "Chill Out" in their titles were released in the mid-1990s and beyond, helping to establish the genre as being very closely related to downtempo and trip hop but also incorporating, especially in the early 2000s, slower varieties of house music, nu-jazz, psybient, and lounge music.
Chill out is generally tonal, relaxing (or at least not as "intense" as other music from the styles it draws from), and generally does not incorporate music that emphasizes "hard," "deep," or particularly hypnotic rhythms.

 Wind chill - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Wind chill is the apparent temperature felt on exposed skin due to the combination of air temperature and wind speed.
Except at higher temperatures, where wind chill is considered less important, the wind chill temperature (often incorrectly called the "wind chill factor") is always lower than the air temperature, because any wind increases the rate at which moisture evaporates from the skin and carries heat away from the body.
The exact definition of wind chill has been controversial because it is a composite index, because animate and inanimate bodies behave differently, and because wind chill reports have a major impact on winter tourism.

The wind chill factor is a calculated temperature that represents the ‘feel’ of a wind on exposed human skin in terms of an equivalent temperature in still air.
The wind chill is commonly presented as a table of temperature versus wind speed.
The Wind Chill Factor is a useful measure, as it may be used in conjunction with other mechanism of heat loss or gain to yield a net effect.

Wind chill factors are supposed to measure the effect of the combination of temperature and wind speed on human comfort.
Twc is the wind chill, V is the wind speed in statute miles per hour, and T is the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.
Using the formula compute the Fahrenheit wind chill for a wind speed of 5 mph and a temperature of 10 °F. If the wind chill reading were —20 °F and the wind speed were 10 mph, determine the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.

Wind chill is based on the rate of heat loss from exposed skin caused by combined effects of wind and cold.
As the wind increases, heat is carried away from the body at an accelerated rate, driving down the skin temperature and eventually the internal body temperature.

 Chill-out music. By Jody Rosen
But "chill," the station insisted in a string of breathless press releases and on-air promos, is about more than music.
There's Summer Chill and Winter Chill—not to be confused with Ibiza Summer Chill or Fashion TV Winter Chill.
The truth is, chillout is less a musical genre than an ideal—a vague state of New Age serenity, which, judging by the album covers, has something to do with day spas, white sand beaches, low-lit boîtes, midcentury modern furnishings, and the occasional Buddha statuette lurking in the middle distance.

 Who programs Chill? - SIRIUS Backstage Forum   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The thing is though that NYC has scores of great chill DJs who would probably be psyched out of their minds to do a 2 hour chill show on Sirius and who would come up with a much better mix than we're seeing right now.
To be quite honest, I've never understood the elitist attitude that many people have about Chill, as if it's a sin to include X but not Y. SIRIUS produces all of their music content in-house, so I doubt there'd be any interest in bringing in sydicated programming.

William Moore of Irving, TX and a few of his friends have had a ongoing debate about whether or not the wind chill factor affects the freezing of water.
