How would you describe the Mona Lisa’s smile?

Scientists Think They Figured Out Mona Lisa’s Smile

It is a mystery that has vexed the art world for centuries: Is Mona Lisa’s famous smile happy? The answer is overwhelmingly “yes,” according to a new study. German researchers report that nearly everyone shown altered images of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous brunette perceived the original as happy. “We really were astonished,” neuroscientist Juergen Kornmeier said. The point of the analysis was to determine how people respond to visual clues such as facial expressions. Researchers chose to study reactions to the 16th-century masterpiece because of the “emotional ambiguity” of her expression. To some observers, they note, Mona Lisa’s slight smile appears to dissolve into a sneer the longer you stare at it. But overall, 97% of the people surveyed deemed her “happy.”

What does that smile say to you?

Just happy? Or is she a touch mischievous, or even flirtatious? If there was a word balloon in the picture, what would she be saying?

A Life Lesson…

Sometimes life’s lessons come from those with the least experience….

This is the of story of two five-year-old boys from Kentucky, one white and one black and it’s teaching people about racial harmony.

This is Jax (left) and his best friend Reddy (right)

Jax and Reddy rockin’ their identical look!

Jax and his mom were discussing his wild hair. His mother told him that he needed a haircut soon. He said that he wanted his head shaved really short so he could look like his friend Reddy. He said he couldn’t wait to go to school with his hair like Reddy’s so that his teacher wouldn’t be able to tell them apart. He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut. Here’s a picture of Jax and Reddy from their Christmas program. I’m sure you all see the resemblance. If this isn’t proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don’t know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.

Coconut oil…Check out these wonderful uses!

* Oil alternative: Coconut oil is a healthier alternative when cooking. Instead of using olive oil, coconut oil can reap the same benefits.

*Butter alternative: It can be used on toast, in a pan or when making cookies! Coconut oil is a healthier alternative to butter.

*Moisturizer: Dab coconut oil on rough, dry or chapped skin.

*Overnight conditioner: Pour some oil into hands and rub it through hair before sleeping. Wash it out in the morning.

*Soother for split ends: After showering, sprinkle coconut oil on the ends of your hair for smoother and shinier results.

*Teeth whitener: Coconut oil is a great and natural ingredient for oil pulling. Swish in your mouth for 7-10 minutes before brushing for pearly whites!

*Cheekbone highlighter: Dab coconut oil on your finger and apply lightly to skin.

*Shaving lotion : Coconut oil helps reduce inflammation and the possibility of ingrown hairs.

*Callus remover: Simply sprinkle some coconut oil on your callus and file away! After the callus is gone, coconut oil can reduce the spot’s redness and dryness.

  *Energy supplement : One spoonful of coconut oil can give you a great start to your day. Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to oatmeal, coffee and smoothies (or even by itself) for a boost of energy and a natural ant-inflamatory.

*Removes sticky labels : When you’re having a hard time removing barcode labels from glass cups, plastic toys or other items, just add coconut oil!

*Makes cleaning pots and pans a breeze : Having trouble getting rid of grimy and greasy pots and pans? A splash of coconut oil will make your after dinner routine so much easier

Worlds Tallest Sandcastle!

This sandcastle measures 48 feet, 8 inches tall and has a circumference of 530 feet!

Legendary sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik made history when he and a team of 45 students built the world’s largest sandcastle on Puri Beach in India’s eastern state of Odisha.

Another incredible view of the sandcastle!

 

An artist in India constructed the world’s largest sandcastle to promote peace and awareness about art.

Sudarsan Pattnaik and 45 students from his Sudarsan Sand Institute claimed the Guinness World Record for “Tallest sandcastle” for the 48-foot and 8-inch tall work of art they erected at Puri, Odisha in India.

The sandcastle, which had a circumference of 530 feet, featured several intricate designs including the words “World Peace” in the center.

“I am happy that we spread the message of world peace through the world’s tallest sandcastle. This is India’s first sand art placed in Guinness World Records,” Pattnaik said.

Pattnaik’s sculpture surpassed the previous record of 45 feet 10.25 inches created by Ted Siebert on Virginia Key Beach in Miami, Fla. in 2015.

Unlike most other record attempts, which used machinery to collect and compact the sand, Pattnaik’s sand sculpture was constructed entirely by hand.
