10 Famous Logos That Have A Hidden Message

I was in religion class today. The teacher told us about sects, 

which caught my attention. I followed carefully everything that was uttered.

 At one point I heard that she mentioned that the logo of Coca-Cola hides 666, which represents a badge of some sect. It made me very interested, 

so when I came home I googled it on the Internet. 

I found a lot of inscriptions with some hidden messages and 

I wanted to share that with you. So let’s take a look at some of them.

 By the way, I need to mention right away that some of them are not even hidden 

but cleverly designed.

  1. VAIO

Picture1

This probably seems just as a word VAIO to you. But if you look a little closer 

you can see the first two letters, which represent analogue and the last two letters are binary.

2. Toblerone

Picture2

You will never notice this one, trust me.

Picture3

 

3. Toyota

Picture4

The three ellipses in the logo for Toyota represent three hearts. 

The heart of a customer, the heart of a product and the heart of progress in the field technology. But it isn`t what’s hidden. Here`s what`s hidden :

4. Hope for African Children Initiative

Picture5

When you first look at it, it looks only like a map of Africa. But take a closer look

 and you’ll see an adult and child facing each other.

5. Tostitos

Picture6

The two middle T’s in Tostitos show two friends sharing some tortilla chips and salsa.

6. Elefont

Picture7

Look at the negative space in the lower-case E – it’s an elephant’s trunk.

7. The Bronx Zoo

 

You’ll see the animals are within a big city if you just take a little closer

 look at giraffes` legs.

8.Coca-Cola

  As I told you, there are 3 sixes (666) in the logo.

  1. Spartan Golf Club

9o

This logo is genius. Look at it one way and you see a Spartan helmet. Then look at it

 another way and there’s a golfer taking a swing.

  1. Le Tour de France

op

The yellow circle in the logo of Le Tour de France represents the summer sun and

 a bicycle wheel, and the letter ‘R’ of ‘Tour’ was made to look like a cyclist.

Let’s play with words

Take a pen. Take a piece of paper. Write a poem.

It sounds so easy but yet when it comes to turning it into reality, we are capable of sitting at the desk with a pen and blank paper for hours. Days. Weeks. Maybe months. After some time we might come up with only a word or two, or if we’re lucky enough, with a line.

Some people call it a lack of inspiration whereas others believe that one needs to be talented to write poems. In my opinion, it’s a little bit of both. However, writing a poem in maternal language is challenging and let alone in the second language.

I have met two creative young girls whose maternal language is Serbian but who embraced the challenge regardless and wrote poems in their second language, that is, English.

Their names are Antonija Nastić and Simona Računica. And guess what? They were only 9 years old at that time. They are students of Mladost Primary School , Belgrade, Serbia.

Here are their poems.

Glasses

I’ve hunted near, I’ve hunted far I

even looked inside my daddy’s car

I’ve lost my glasses, I’m in need

To have them now, so I can read.

 

Are they behind the sofa,

Are they behind the bed

Oh, here they are

Right on my head.

Yummy food

I love travelling around the world,

Meeting strange people and eating tasty food.

 

In France, I tasted scrumptious baguette,

in Italy delicious spaghetti,

in Russia yummy pancakes,

and in Turkey superb cake with prunes

 

.I love travelling around the world,

Meeting strange people and eating tasty food.

 

In America appetizing cup cakes,

Finger – licking cinnamon buns with frosting,

popular Boston cream pie doughnuts

And melt-in-your-mouth strawberry cheesecake.

 

I love travelling around the world,

Meeting strange people and eating tasty food.

1.Fa La La – Justin Bieber ft. Boyz II Men

image

-Written by Justin Bieber,Adonis Shropshire and Bernard Harvey,published in 2011.I love melody and lyrics in this song.There`s acapella version of this song,too.

The song was recorded for Bieber’s Christmas Album – “Under The Mistletoe”.

2.Something About December – Christina Perri

image

-Published in 2013 for her album – “A Very Merry Perri Christmas”

-“Let It Snow” is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945. It was written in Hollywood, California during a heat wave as Cahn and Styne imagined cooler conditions.Dean Martin sang his version of this song 1959 on his album A Winter Romance. This version has easily become the most well-known and popular adaptation of the song.

4.All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

image

– Written and produced by Carey and Walter Afanasieff. It was released by Columbia Records on November 1, 1994 as the lead single from her first holiday album and fourth studio album, Merry Christmas. Mariah also re-recorded the song as a duet with Justin Bieber for his 2011 album Under the Mistletoe, titled “All I Want for Christmas is You (SuperFestive!)”. The song has also been covered by many artists over the years.

Review: Looking for Alaska, John Green

I chose this book because it is my favourite and it is  awesome. The book is about Miles Halter who leaves his home in Florida

 to attend

Culver Creek Preparatory High School in Alabama for his junior year. In boarding school he meets his room mate, Chip Martin. Then Chip introduces Miles to his friends Takumi Hikohito and

Alaska Young. Chip,whose nickname was ‘The Colonel’, nicknames Miles – ‘Pudge’, because he was too thin. Pudge was obsessed with last words. He knew presidents’, actors’, singers’ and other famous people’s last words.

Those words are words which they said before they died.

 Miles’ favourite last words were ‘I go to seek a Great Perhaps’ and he used those words when he was leaving his home. Those were the last words of Francois Rabelais.

Picture3Picture2

They were an awesome crew till something went wrong. But I’m not gonna tell you what happened because I will ruin the story if I tell you that. The main reason I recommend you this book is the fact that

this is an instructive story. It is instructive because it can show you

 what can happen if you drive drunk and you are too young for alcohol.

John Green

This is John Green’s first novel, published in March 2005 by Dutton Juvenile. John attended Indian Springs School, a boarding and day school outside of Birmingham, Alabama. During the time he was a student there, things like this happened for the same reasons.

John Green is also an author of many popular books. Some of those books are ’The fault in our stars’, ’Paper Towns’, ’Let it snow: Three Holiday Romances’ and other books. My favourite books are ’Looking for Alaska’ and ’Paper Towns’. He is my favourite author, but one thing which I don’t like is that in his books some characters,

most frequently it’s the main character, have to die or outlive  someone. Next year the movie ‘Looking for Alaska’ will come out, the movie

‘Paper Towns’ has come out this year and ‘The Fault in our Stars’ came out last year.

Here is the book with different covers.

Let’s go back to the past! Buongiorno Italia!

If you like walking through  famous streets, I have a good suggestion for you.

Today, I’m writing about Belgrade.

Belgrade is the capital city of Serbia, a small country in South Europe.

This country has an awesome history, and amazing people.

For me, Belgrade is the most beautiful city in this country.

Belgrade has some beautiful places such as Republic Square, Kalemegdan, Skadarlija  etc.

My friends from school, Republic Square, Belgrade

Last week, on Friday, 30th October 2015, there was an event held on Republic Square. It’s called “Buongiorno Italia”.

About 40 fabulous 14 year-old teenagers, from the Primary School “Mladost” along with their teachers,

12204935_972814076091367_30755653_n

My friends from school. They’re wearing traditional Italian clothes and they’re ready to set the stage on fire with traditional Italian dance. 🙂

made an amazing atmosphere, and it was something like their little party!

12200577_972814169424691_1019268517_n

Behind the scene. We’re ready to rock! 🙂

They had a special performance about Italian history and the most powerful and famous ruler, Caesar.

The performance consisted of a sketch and my friends were dressed up like Asterix, Obelix and Celts from Singidunum.

Some special teenagers were performing traditional Italian dance – Tarantella, Mambo Italiano, Pizzicata  etc.

12202163_972814152758026_1955841313_n

Warming up!

There was one beautiful ballet dancer, and there were some amazing singers. It was awesome!

They also taught other people some Italian hand gestures. The foreigners attended this performance too.

It was great! Like a big party in a city. And I was there too! I was an Italian dancer, and I’m so thankful

for being a part of something like this. And I made awesome memories!

I wish that you were there. It was… I can just say wow.

I hope you will visit Belgrade someday, and that you will see one of our performances!

Next time, maybe we will do a performance about French or English culture.

Maybe Chinese? I’m just kidding.

I will write you soon.

Much love from Belgrade!

It’s time for Halloween!

Halloween or All Hallows’ Eve  is a yearly celebration observed in many countries on 31ST October.

The day is dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows).

On Halloween kids would wear a costume and go door to door asking for candy by saying trick or treat,

and older people who celebrate Halloween would go to a costume party.

Picture23

The most classic Halloween costumes are:  a  witch, a vaPicture22mpire, a ghost, a cat and Frankenstein’s monster.

Picture26 Picture24

Picture25Picture27
Picture28

People would decorate their houses with some symbolical Halloween decorations

 like  jack-o’-lanterns.

Jack-o’-lanterns are pumpkins which are carved to make them seem

 like they have faces, skeletons, witches with their cauldrons, ghost and many more.

Picture29Picture30

In other countries Halloween is celebrated and known in different ways.

In China it’s Hungry Ghost Festival, in Mexico it’s The day of the dead,

in Bosnia and Herzegovina it’s Night of Witches.

Now even if Halloween does sound fun and exciting

many people don’t really know the origins of  Halloween.

The origin of Halloween can be traced to this ancient pagan festival celebrated by Celtic people over 2,000 years ago.

The Celts believed that the dead could walk among the living at this time.

On 1st November, they celebrated Samhain, but they believed that the day before the dead

could visit the living as ghosts.

Picture31

Some of the Celts wore ghoulish costumes so that wandering spirits would mistake them

for one of their own and leave them alone. Others offered sweets to the spirits to appease them.

Picture32

Now  the  tradition of  trick or  treating  started  of  the  Celtic tradition of  souling  and  guising.

On 2nd November  some  people  would  go  door  to  door  and

they  would  get  soul  cakes  in  exchange  for  a  prey  for  the dead  relatives  of  the  person

who  gave  them the  soul cakes, that was called souling.

Kids would go guising, they would dress up  in a costume and carry  hollow  pumpkins

and  except food, money in exchange  for  singing, poetry  or  joke telling.

Picture34 Picture33

People say that lanterns were used to ward off evil spirits.

During the 1800’s in North America, pumpkins replaced turnips because they were plentiful

as well as easy to hollow out and carve.

Picture35 Picture36

But do you wanna know what is even scarier than not going trick or treating,

or having a bad costume? NOT CELEBRATING HALLOWEEN EVER!

Yes, here in Serbia people don’t  celebrate Halloween, because of the Orthodox religion.

Only some teenagers who find it fun make Halloween parties.

ITALY AS A TRAVEL DESTINATION

Italy is such a beautiful country. I chose Italy because it is my favourite place.

I visited Milan, Genova, Padova, Trieste and other places, but Milan is my favourite.

The most famous building in Milan is the Teatro alla Scala, but personally I don’t think there’s

anything special about that building. I was there, I saw it and I was disappointed.

I thought that the Scala is a special building as many people recommend visiting it, but it is just a building.

I don’t know how to explain it but I don’t like it at all.

I didn’t go inside but I hope that it is more beautiful than the outside.

Picture1

Teatro alla Scala

What I think is wonderful is the Milan Cathedral. I think that everyone who has the opportunity to see it

should take the opportunity because it is one wonderful building.

The Cathedral Duomo is located on Piazza del Duomo (Duomo Square).

The Basilica Papale di San Pietro in Vatican, Rome, is the only bigger church than the Milan Cathedral.

So Duomo is the second largest church in the world.

Picture2

Milan Cathedral

Milan is a city famous for fashion. There is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II where the most expensive stores are located.

Some of the stores in the Galleria are Versace, Prada, Louis Vuitton and so many others….

Picture3

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Genova is also a beautiful city by the sea. In Genova I saw the house of Christopher Columbus.

We couldn’t go inside but from the outside it looks like it has only two rooms and there is a small garden too.

Picture4

The house of Christopher Columbus

There is also the Cattedrale di San Lorenco.

Picture5

The Carlo Felice Theater in Genova.

Picture6

I liked Padova too but that place didn’t leave any special impressions on me.

I visited the Basilica di Sant Antonio and I liked it so much.

Picture7

Basilica di Sant Antonio

Trieste is a very special city to me. First time I went there was when I was 6 years old, I think.

Trieste is my second home. I know everything about it.

I can tell you the location of whatever you need and I can show you how to get wherever you want.

If you want to swim and sunbathe I recommend you Barcolla beach.

It is a beautiful beach. You can speak Serbian there because a large number of people on the beach are Serbians,

but there are also other nationalities.

The place in the first picture is the best place on the beach.

Every time I go there I sit exactly on the rock in the picture. Hhahahaha 😀

Picture8

Picture9

And at the end of the beach there is the Miramare Castle.

It’s from 19th century and it has a beautiful garden and many statues.

You shouldn’t miss the tour of Miramare if you come to Trieste.

Picture10

Miramare Castle

Picture11

Picture12

The garden, Miramare Castle

And at the beginning of the beach there is Vittoria Lighthouse.

There are two floors where people can go and I was there too.

I was at the first floor because that day the weather was bad so they didn’t allow us to go to the second floor.

But the first floor is too high, I can’t imagine how high the second floor is. Wooow. That place is amazing.

Picture13

Picture14

Europe’s largest square is located by the sea – Piazza Unita. I celebrated the New Year’s Eve on that square and it was fantastic.

There was a lot of firework. And at the beginning of the square there is a port.

Picture15

Picture16

Picture17

A few years ago when I was in Trieste I wanted to visit Venice.

So I decided to catch a train and go there. Italian trains are awesome!!!

Venice is a city with so many bridges and so many canals.

And there is the Basilica Santa Maria della Salute.

The church is wonderful and very big. I can’t forget that place.

Picture18

Basilica Santa Maria della Salute

Picture19

Basilica Santa Maria della Salute

Venice is most famous for Venice carnivals. A carnival is an annual festival.

Picture20 Picture21

I really want to visit Rome and share my impressions with you.

But if I can’t go there,maybe you can, so go there and tell me how it looks.

I hope I will go there one day and maybe buy some Versace shoes

which I saw in the Galleria in Milan and now I am obsessed with them. Hehe. 😀

But yeah one day…. I hope you will enjoy the trip if you visit Italy.
