Over the last few years there has been a lot of conjecture about Leonardo Da Vinci's "The Last Supper."  Much of this conjecture stems from books of popular fiction that look for hidden codes in Da Vinci's work.  

Hey, I like a good book...but it seems that the line between fact and fiction keeps getting obscured for one reason or another.

The real secret of "The Last Supper" is that Da Vinci captures/creates the reaction of each of the Apostles the moment that Jesus says "One of you will betray me..."

(Its not really a secret..anyone who has taken a basic art history course is exposed to this fact)

Take a look at the painting with this in mind.  I think it will make your experience with the piece much richer.

Sorry...no secret codes

There are several websites that describe what reactions the apostles are having.  I've left those descriptions out so you can look at the image with fresh eyes and draw your own impressions.

Did Da Vinci get the reactions right?

Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Here are the Apostles in Order, Left to right 

(You may notice that Da Vinci put them in groups of three)

Bartholomew, James, son of Alphaeus and Andrew 

Judas Iscariot, Peter and John. Judas is wearing green and blue (clutching a small bag).  He is the only person to have his elbow on the table. 

Jesus (of Course)

Apostle Thomas, James the Greater and Philip
 
Matthew, Jude Thaddeus and Simon the Zealot

Common Sense ID Theft Protection

0 Comments

Lots of advice circulates via email.  The following information was sent to me and looked useful for everyone.  

This is advice on identity theft protection that allegedly came from a corporate attorney that was a victim of this type of crime.  

Since I'm sometimes not the trusting type, I went ahead and checked it out on Snopes (which gave the information a clean bill of health)

 I put the link to the Snopes review below. 

An Identity Theft Victims Advice

1. Do not sign the back of your credit cards.
Instead, put 'PHOTO ID REQUIRED.' 


2. When you are writing checks to pay on your credit card accounts, DO NOT put the complete account number on the 'For' line. 
Instead, just put the last four numbers.
The credit card company knows the rest of the number, and anyone who might be handling your check as it passes through all the check processing channels won't have access to it.

3. Put your work phone # on your checks instead of your home phone. If you have a PO Box use that instead of your home address. If you do not have a PO Box, use your work address. Never have your SS# printed on your checks. (DUH!) You can add it if it is necessary. But if you have It printed, anyone can get it. 

 

4. Place the contents of your wallet on photocopy machine. Do both sides of each license, credit card, etc. You will know what you had in your wallet and all of the account numbers and phone numbers to call and cancel.
Keep the photocopy in a safe place. 

5. We have been told we should cancel our credit cards immediately. But the key is having the toll free numbers and your card numbers handy so you know whom to call. Keep those where you can find them. 

 

6.. File a police report immediately in the jurisdiction where your  credit cards, etc., were stolen. This proves to credit providers you were diligent,and this is a first step toward an investigation (if there ever is one).

7. Call the 3 national credit reporting organizations immediately to place a fraud alert on your name and also call the Social Security fraud line number. 

The alert means any company that checks your credit knows your information was stolen, and they have to contact you by phone to authorize new credit.

Now, here are the numbers you always need
to contact about your wallet, if it has been stolen: 

 

1. Equifax: 1-800-525-6285 
2. Experian 1-888-397-3742 
3.Trans Union1-800-680 7289 
4.) S. Security Administration (fraud line): 1-800-269-0271

How to Control the Trolls

The Truth About  Internet Trolling

 

Work With Me-Click Here

Hi friend this is Jason Jones with a quick tip about Internet trolls. 


If you've been active in a forum, a Facebook page, any other kind of online group you've probably met the kind of person I'm talking about


These are the people who start arguments, who make comments with the sole purpose of making others angry


I'm not talking about the occasional disagreements or a heated argument that happens between two members that may have an opposing point of view


I'm talking about the honest to God Internet troll. The one who has no other purpose other than drawing a negative reaction from you


There was a study done recently and there's a great article on Forbes.com by Roger Dooley that talks about this

Forbes Article-Click Here

Much of the assumption about Internet trolls is that in real life there probably good people but because of the illusion of anonymity there is on the net they start acting out certain personalities they otherwise wouldn't.


It turns out this is not the case.  The person who is a troll online is a troll in real life as well.


The study that Mr. Dooley refers to in his article talks about how the people who do the trolling our fit into what a lot of psychiatrist call the dark triad


That is a spectrum of antisocial behavior starts with narcissism and Machiavellianism and ends up in someone we would call a sociopath.


People with these particular personalities actually to some degree get pleasure from the anguish and suffering of others.


So when they draw a negative reaction out of someone that is exactly what they're looking for. That is the food they need to feed their personality.


So the only effective way to deal with an Internet troll is not to feed them.


That means you ignore them or if your platorms functionality allows...you block them


Some of us who like to think the best of everyone, want to engage this type of person to try to reason with them.  To try to get them to lighten up.  It's not gonna work


Unfortunately nature is against us when we try to do that.  So today's tip don't feed the trolls


Hey if you got some value out of this video and out of this post please consider sharing this with your friends family and coworkers so they can get some value too.   This is Jason I wish you health wealth and happiness
